The Ugly Architect at Hotel Cafe: Artist on the Rise

There’s a beauty to La La Land that only its locals know, and it’s that you can walk into just about any concert venue and discover a secret gem yet to be uncovered. Such was the case last night while in route to watch David Wax Museum. I arrived a mere fifteen minutes early and caught the tail end of The Ugly Architect, whose raw authenticity was immediately palpable. It’s not often one gets to see an impressive artist at the beginning of their rise, and this magical moment reminds me of the first time I saw Aaron Embry perform. Check out The Ugly Architect below.
