Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real - (Set time: 9:30 PM)
Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real
When Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real play, it’s exciting, visceral and – above all – real. They have come a long way since releasing their debut EP, “Brando’s Paradise,” in 2010, which sent them on a trajectory of non-stop touring and recording. The band has released six CDs in five years, including 2010’s debut full-length, “Promise of the Real,” the aforementioned “Wasted” in 2012, a live album “Live Endings,” in 2012, and a free collection of demos, “I Ain’t Mad Anymore.” In 2013.” They’ve also headlined their own tours and performed at such notable events as Farm Aid, Bridge School Benefit, SXSW, Lollapalooza, Stagecoach, Gathering of the Vibes Festival, Willie Nelson’s Country Throwdown, Kid Rock’s Chilin’ The Most Cruise, iTunes Festival, Harvest The Hope benefit, and much more. The band has also accomplished something no other self-released indie band has done – landed every major late night show, including “Late Show with David Letterman,” “Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” “Conan,” “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” and “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” Along the way, the press has been ever so kind. No Depression magazine once noted, “With a unique voice and gift for penning timely socially conscious lyrics stretched over muscular guitar riffs, Lukas Nelson is earning not only fans but, heaps of critical praise as well.”



In 2014, they released three new songs, “Lil Girl,” which is featured in the new movie, Dumb and Dumber To, “Living it Up,” and “Find Yourself,” all from the band’s 2013 Love Yourself recording sessions in Topanga Canyon, California. They also scored their first film. Satellite Beach. A short, directed brothers Luke Wilson (Old School, The Royal Tenenbaums, Idiocracy) and Andrew Wilson (Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums, Hall Pass), which won the coveted Bruce Corwin Award at the 29thAnnual Santa Barbara International Film Festival. In addition to recording with Neil Young, they are currently finishing production on a new album.

Insects Vs. Robots
"IVR is a psychotropicturesque quasi-nomadic music tribe roaming the jungles of Los Angeles. They employ violin, charango, guitar, drums, bass, voice, harp, banjo, kazoo, harmonium, saran wrap, sitar, megaphone, and other sonic confibulations to weave landscapes of otherworldly, folksy, and volcanic rock music. Their performance causes audiences to enter a state of frenzied joyous dancing, leaping, frothing, singing, moshing, and bewilderment. Having entered into their world, I have peered into the strange polyphonic canyons of their realm, and have no choice but to remain and chronicle their journey. I will not be returning to civilization."
—From the recovered Field Notebook of missing Anthropologist Dr. Theophrastus Bombastus III.
