Phantom Machines - (Set time: 11:00 PM)
Phantom Machines
The journey began in Los Angeles, California in 2015 as the electro-rock band, Phantom Machines immersed into the music scene. Hyke Shirinian, a Los Angeles based percussionist with credits on soundtracks such as Plant of the Apes, Star Trek, Mission Impossible, and Jurassic World, shared with singer and law student, Armen Najarian a few songs he had written. Their musical chemistry and vision was apparent immediately and led to an intense collaboration of their skills. After months of honing their craft Hyke and Armen set out to find the perfect band mates. Albert James guitarist and long time friend, and Mikey Martin, the drummer of from Shiny Toy Guns joined shortly after. There is great anticipation for the release of their single this summer.
Tiffany Madadian - (Set time: 10:15 PM)
Tiffany Madadian
Tiffany Madadian was born into a musical family in Los Angeles, California. Her love for music began as a child at home when she started singing along to Brit Rock and falling in love with her dads record collection. Deep Purple, Pink Floyd and Supertramp became her soul mates before Madonna, Gwen Stefani and Debbie Harry taught her about sex and love.

School plays and graduation songs lead to the brilliant Marty Callner who discovered her while at his own daughters graduation. An introduction to Roger Love lead to the rollercoaster that would be the upcoming years.

At 17 she was introduced to the brilliant Paul Graham and Paul Bushnell (Faith Hill). They were the two people who taught her early on how to write songs after they realized that she had a mouthful to say.

Incredible opportunities came Tiffany's way and she was able to work with legends like Bon Jovi and David Paich (Toto) with whom she co wrote and sang with.

After graduating high school she was eager to start gigging. It took a few stints in the Hollywood club scene before Tiffany was offered the opening slots for 80's popstar Tiffany, not to mention the gods of glam, Sweet. She was becoming known as the young girl who was playing clubs up and down the Sunset Strip before she could legally have a drink in them.

In 2011 she began work on her first EP. Writing and producing it with her guitarist Claudio Tristano, "I Love Me, Too" was released in 2012. It was an obnoxious piece of work that captured that time in her life, touching on topics of restlessness, fear, desire and ambition. Since then she has been playing in her hometown while continuing to write and record.

We can expect new music from Tiffany this Fall.

"With infectious melodies, throw back 70′s guitar riffs and her incredible talent of being able to carry her audience through sweet storytelling, girl banter and also down an emotional, sometimes angry ally of arena rock anthems, she is surely an impressive force to be reckoned with on stage."

Animal Super Species - (Set time: 8:45 PM)
Animal Super Species was formed in Santa Cruz by college roommates Danny Gunny and Reilly Mahon. Influenced by the likes of The Strokes and Thom Yorke, Gunny's DIY approach to songwriting and recording fused electronic dance beats with raw garage rock. The group was soon joined by rhythm section Chris Hansen and Nick Rives and quickly began playing shows in support of their self-produced EP Phobos. They then took to the studio to record and release their debut LP Yearbook, the polished production of which developed their sound into a new breed of anthemic dance rock. Since relocating to Los Angeles from the Bay Area in 2015 the band has added their fifth and final member, Alec Gunny, started work on a follow up to Yearbook, and begun rapidly spreading their infectious grooves throughout the LA music scene.
Shaunt Avakian Trio - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
Shaunt Avakian Trio
"Teenage Blues Rock guitarist and L.A. based multi-instrumentalist, Shaunt Avakian has assembled to take on a night at the Troubadour with 12 year old drum prodigy simply known around town as "Michel" and Seasoned L.A. Studio stalwart, guitarist and bassist Pat Cherry. Shaunt Avakian has been playing music since he was a young boy and has worked with, Grammy nominated artists, Jan Linder-Koda and Marty Rifkin. He studies Guitar at TheColburnSchool and is mentored by Classical guitarist and bandleader Kenton Youngstrom. He is in the midst of releasing his second single and trying to complete an EP all of original pieces."
Shadow The Wild - (Set time: 9:30 PM)
Shadow The Wild
Shadow The Wild was born on a movie set. Lead singer Ari Welkom was playing the part of a vampire killer. Guitar player Fabien Hameline was the assistant director. Between takes, they struck up a conversation about music, which developed into some jam sessions that spawned a decision to start a band when the film wrapped.

“The first time we played together, it was magic,” San Francisco born Welkom says. “Fabien’s twin brother, Sebastien, was a classical guitarist. He switched to bass. [Drummer] Adam (Timmerman) was the second guy we auditioned. After one song, we knew he was the one.” The new band started writing songs, polishing them with numerous gigs on LA’s active club scene, touring regionally, playing SXSW, etc.

But there was still a sound they were collectively chasing. They knew they’d know it when they found it, so they stopped performing for a year to hone in on their song writing.

When the band met longtime LA producer Greg Morgenstein, they knew they’d found a kindred spirit. “Greg’s attention to detail is immaculate,” Welkom says. “He guided us through the recording process helping us polish the hooks, the grooves, the tempos and the dynamics. He made sure we were playing the songs as tightly as possible before recording them. He encouraged us to come up with all sorts of cool parts, then showed us how to incorporate them into the songs.”

The first result is “Twin Flame,” the band’s debut single and the lead track from their eponymous EP, set for release on June 3 via the band’s label, My Inner Animal. It opens with the spacy, swirling sounds of a Wurlitzer electric piano and the heartbeat of Timmerman’s kick drum. Washes of color from a processed electric guitar solo, played backwards, seep into the track, a nod to the sounds of ‘60s psychedelia. Dub-like keyboard effects and the band’s swooning choral harmonies set the stage for Welkom’s vocal, a perfect blend of passion and apprehension. He captures the feeling you get when you’re aching for love, while doubting it will ever arrive. “The song explores the dilemma of being in a superficial culture, disconnected from our fellow humans, yet longing for connection.” Welkom says. “It’s that old - I can’t live with you, but I can’t live without you – conundrum, but the guy in our song says he’d rather burn with her, than drown without her.” Midway through the track, Fabien Hameline takes an eerie psychedelic guitar break that intensifies the feelings of hunger and longing. It’s a fitting harbinger for the impressive EP the band has waiting on deck.

While the four musicians in Shadow the Wild have been playing for most of their lives, this is the first time any of them have been in an ongoing band.

Twin brothers Fabien and Sebastien Hameline grew up in France, but American rock inspired their move to LA. “‘Rock’ is an English word,” Sebastien says. “It’s odd to hear rock music sung in any language other than English. We both started on piano at seven, then moved on to cello and classical guitar. When Fabien started playing with Ari, I switched to bass.” Sebastien’s bass lines have the flavor of lead guitar, adding a unique texture to the band’s rhythms.

When he was a child, Timmerman was already making percussive sounds with his mouth and teeth. In 4th grade he started drum lessons and in high school picked up piano, guitar and bass. He later graduated from the prestigious Berklee College of music before leaving for LA. “Somebody asked me if I wanted to try out for a band and I’ve been playing with the guys since that first audition, growing closer, as friends and musicians, every day.”

“Our ultimate goal is to write songs that will outlive the band,” Sebastien says, “and play them on the biggest stages of the world.”EBUT SINGLE OUT JUNE 3
