Indie Bands You Should Know: The Airborne Toxic Event

The Airborne Toxic Event is an incredibly talented indie rock band from Los Angeles, California, consisting of Anna Bulbrook (viola, keyboard), Daren Taylor (drums), Noah Harmon (bass), Steven Chen (guitar), and Mike Jollett (main vocals, guitar). The Airborne Toxic Event began in 2006 when Mike Jollett began writing songs following one intensely traumatic week in his life: his relationship with his girlfriend ended, his mother was diagnosed with cancer, and Jollett himself was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease. Their sound is very similar to the Cure, but a little more hard rock. The Airborne Toxic Event has released 2 albums to date: a self-titled album in 2008, and All At Once in April of 2011. You may have heard their rather popular song “Sometime Around Midnight” off of their 2008 release (listen to it below).
