About the happy problem:
Welcome the happy problem – the new rock/pop/punk power quartet from
Los Angeles. Energetic, addictive tunes peppered with darkly fun
lyrics make the happy problem part Jane’s Addiction, part Tegan and
Sara, and all chaos, hypnosis, empathy and quirk. Award-winning
songwriter Sam Shaber fronts the band, with former Ultramen bassist
Pedro Porto, wildman lead guitarist James Kloeppel, and groove-driving
Nick Adams on drums. Don’t miss a chance to see this show live, and
get your happy back!

–Songs featured on MTV, E!, Lifetime, ABC Family and the CW

–Tour dates currently being added on the West Coast

Betcha wish you lived near Huntington Beach now, eh?

We’ve had songs licensed to MTV, E!, the CW, and just this week, Lifetime.  (Now that’s rock n roll, eh?)  We’ve picked out outfits – with help from awesome designers at 7lightningbolt.com.  And we’ve been discovering that we all like to cook(!) and we all like to eat.  We like to shop at Goodwill and we like to be as green as possible in life.  How cool, eh?
