Smiths & Morrissey tribute band Sweet & Tender Hooligans coming to the El Rey

Many have tried to recreate the magic Smiths & Morrissey had during their heyday, but Sweet & Tender Hooligans has been the only band to keep the sound in its glory state.

Sweet & Tender Hooligans bills itself as “the ultimate Smiths & Morrissey cover band,” and it’s hard to dismiss this fact. Based out of L.A., Sweet & Tender Hooligans teamed up with Jose Maldonado with the goal of becoming the best cover band ever to hail from SoCal. They achieved this goal when the influential LA Weekly named them the “Best Cover Band in Los Angeles,” and ever since, they have been spreading the Smiths & Morrissey love from beyond the borders if LA and into other SoCal cities.

While they have been spreading their influence, the band has remained committed to their beloved L.A. It was this city that has given the band so much love and support, one that other cover bands in other cities don’t often enjoy.

So, to reciprocate that love, Sweet & Tender Hooligans will play a set at the historic El Rey Theater (5515 Wilshire Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90036) on August 25; and for all of those out there who love Smiths & Morrissey, this will be a show that shouldn’t be missed.
