P L a N E T S - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
P L a N E T S
The band underneath your bed, P L a N E T S, are a tricksy bunch.
From their 4D performances smashed full of choreo-punk demon dancers,
ghostly beasts and shadowy puppetry, to their haunted trip of a debut
album--this band born in the woods and raised in Alhambra, CA smolders
and burns.

Vibrating along with modern day musical auteurs such as Fever Ray and
echoing ambitious rock acts like The Who, while drawing inspiration
from the twisty television dramas Twin Peaks and The Twilight Zone, P
L a N E T S will tangle you up in some sort of war dance in the woods
where nothing is sacred except sweat, blood and the pursuit of
darkness.

"Live, the 20 or so members make darkly compelling psych rock
reminiscent of 'Red Right Hand'-era Nick Cave." --LA WEEKLY

“The garage band rowdiness of Iggy Pop or The Ramones with the
theatricality of early Genesis, when Peter Gabriel fronted the band
costumed as Magog or The Slipperman.” --EXAMINER

“P L a N E T S comprehensive and astounding number of artistic
mediums created a show to enthrall all the senses. From
'Thriller'-esque dancers crawling up on the stage to dramatic werewolf
theatrics, they put on the show of the night.” -KSPC

Alpha/Beta is a band. We are Brett Anderson (The Donnas, The Stripminers), and Asa Ferry (Kind Hearts and Coronets, Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti) These songs make us happy so we thought they'd make you happy too.
The Janks - (Set time: 11:00 PM)
The Janks
Los Angeles based rock group THE JANKS make it their mission to produce music in the same way they live their lives, with both sincerity and irreverence, strength and vulnerability, with control and chaos. Their sound is deeply rooted in the brotherly two-part harmony tradition of the Kinks and the Everly Brothers while invoking the musical stylings reminiscent of bands like the Raconteurs and Jeff Buckley. The way KROQ describes it, “Imagine Jack White had a baby with Jimmy Page. And that baby had a brother. And those brothers were adopted and raised by a commune of KROQ Local’s Only favorites like Father John Misty and Family of the Year. That’s a smattering of the sensibilities and stylings you get in The Janks.”

Though the group has gone through various incarnations, Zachary Zmed (Vocals, Guitar) has remained the one constant. In 2010, he was joined by his brother Dylan Zmed (Vocals, Mandolin) releasing their second record Hands of Time. Along with touring both coasts, songs “Demon Dance” and “Rat Racers” have been featured on MTV’s Real World Portland. In early 2012, the ‘Brothers Zmed’ were joined by Paul Kilmister (Bass, Production) and Leon LeDoux (Drums) affirming the band’s mission. Since then, THE JANKS have played more than 400 shows including a West Coast tour, performing at the Troubadour and the Echo, a residency at the Bootleg Theater and at the Satellite as well as being the backing band to several performances by Billy Steinberg “Like a Virgin, True Colors.” LA Music Blog notes, “Their charisma and unapologetic joy for playing music comes through in full force during their shows.”

THE JANKS have been recording their new EP at the Palms Studio in Las Vegas capturing the same atmosphere developed over their time together playing live shows. They are also heading to SXSW this year with a Southwest tour through California, Arizona and Texas with some new songs in hand from the new EP!
