Scarypoolparty at Golden State Theatre 2021

For much of the past few years, Alejandro Aranda (a.k.a. Scarypoolparty) has lived in near-constant motion, barely pausing to catch his breath as he rocketed from playing bars and backyards to sold-out headline tours and massive festival stages, receiving widespread critical acclaim along the way.
Born and raised in southern California, Aranda got his start busking on street corners and gigging around LA until he met Twin Shadow, who invited him to join his touring band and began mentoring him as a producer. It was around this time that Aranda landed on American Idol, where he defied all conventional wisdom by performing his own original material every night. The move paid off handsomely when Aranda landed second place on the show’s 17th season, which allowed him to walk away from the series with both his artistic integrity and a considerable international fan base.
