The Nextdoors find humor in social media - Jan 5 2023

Social media produces some of the best laughs. Pasadena’s Mika Larson and Russell Mark were so inspired by’s most eye-rolling, melodramatic posts that they formed a duo around it. 



The Nextdoors Linda Vista Album

We are The Nextdoors. Welcome to our place. We’re a wife-and-husband duo out of Pasadena, CA and our cello-soaked Americana debut album Linda Vista, recorded at home over the pandemic, is available for purchase and streaming everywhere.

Our songs have garnered radio play across the country in the past year, including a #1 song, our leadoff single “Awaken”, at WBSD in Wisconsin.

COVID meant only online and backyard shows for us until 2023, when we played our first public show to a packed house at Wild Parrot Brewery, an event we called Neighbor Day - which drew out Pasadena’s Mayor Victor Gordo and all his staff - he introduced our set, and later declared that “The Nextdoors are one of the true gems of the city.”

Please take a look around, and check out our album - named after Russell’s sister Linda Wiener, who we lost to cancer in 2020. She was one of our biggest supporters, and in fact she drew the flowers and bugs on our album art and website.

More about us: We’ve been playing music together since the minute we met. We even played on stage together at our wedding. We had an idea years ago to write songs based on the most eye-rolling, melodramatic posts on Thus, we named our duo The Nextdoors. But when we were isolated from our other bands during COVID we slowly started recording an album of "regular" original songs… and this is that album! But our song “Honest Mechanic Got Bad” is our first foray into our original concept ;)

We decided to submit a performance of our song Awaken to NPR’s Tiny Desk contest. We had a blast filming this. If you’ve never worn a desk on your head, you really should!
