The Dirty Diamond - (Set time: 10:30 PM)
The Dirty Diamond
Blending a sweet mix of classic American and British infused rock, folk, and Eastern/Armenian tinges, The Dirty Diamond takes listeners on a colorful musical journey. Their soulful and melodic writing creates a vast space in the theater of the mind and heart.

Since the band’s inception, The Dirty Diamond has released 2 albums: "The Dirty Diamond" (produced by Sebu Simonian of the band Capital Cities) and "Our Divine and Sovereign Mother". A fixture on the Los Angeles rock scene, The Dirty Diamond has headlined at iconic venues such as The Troubadour, House of Blues, The Hotel Cafe, and The Viper Room. As an opening act, The Dirty Diamond recently performed at LA’s Greek Theatre.

Some of the band’s collaborations include recordings with pianist Tigran Hamasyan, vocalist Durga McBroom of Pink Floyd, and World Musician Arto Tucboycian.

DD band members, accomplished professionals in their own right, have toured and/or recorded with artists such as Shania Twain, Todd Rundgren, Macy Gray, Serj Tankian, Linda Perhacs, Mika, Keb' Mo, Mindi Abair, Florence + The Machine, James Blunt, Juanes, Andra Day, and more.

The Dirty Diamond are currently hard at work on a new album, set to be titled "Brand New Vintage".
The Narwhals - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
The Narwhals
The Narwhals are a young, alternative, Los Angeles based, rock band, formed in 2010. Their music is heavily influenced by modern rock groups, such as The Strokes, and indie rock groups like The Vaccines and Arctic Monkeys. They have been a band since they were barely teenagers and their original music reflects their coming-of-age experiences filtered through a sound and musical talent mature beyond their years. The Narwhals are made up by Dylan Minnette (singer/guitarist), Zack Mendenhall (bass), Cole Preston (drums) and Braeden Lemasters (singer/guitarist).

The Narwhals (Left to Right: Dylan Minnette, Zack Mendenhall, Braeden Lemasters, Cole Preston)

Dylan (born in Evansville, IN) and Braeden (born in Warren, Ohio) met at a young age through their acting careers in Los Angeles. They quickly bonded over their mutual love to write and perform music. Pursuing this, they joined a teen music program in Van Nuys where they met Cole (born in Los Angeles, CA). Braeden’s father, a music coach, helped find and enlist Zack Mendenhall (born in Valencia, CA). Within a short amount of time they formed The Feaver where they quickly began writing and performing original music.

The band gained quick notoriety in their first year after winning the 98.7 Rockstar Competition in 2010, claiming prizes including $10,000, studio time, and meetings with major recording labels. Since this time they have booked huge events such as the highly prestigious Vans Warped Tour in 2011, and famous LA venues, including The Roxy, The Whisky a Go Go, the Troubadour, the Viper Room, and more. Their song “Bleeding Man” was even selected for the promo of season 2 of R.L. Stine’s The Haunting Hour.

They have recorded in major studios such as Swinghouse and at Danny Masterson’s Bronson Island. In August 2013, they travelled to Chicago to attend Lollapallooza and play the House of Blues. In early 2014 the band changed their name from “The Feaver” to “The Narwhals”. Currently they are recording new music in a make-shift studio in Zack’s living room and actively booking new shows.
