Jared & The Mill - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
Jared & The Mill
We’re 5 best friends from Arizona. We love the desert, we love its mountains, we love our city, its people, and we love each other. We love long drives, early mornings, late nights, dive bars, carne asada Tacos at 3 am, dirty jokes, and asking each other what we think about things. We’re just as likely to get down on Simon & Garfunkel and Bob Dylan as we are Van Halen, Kendrick Lamar, and The Weeknd. We love dogs, we love our van, we love playing music together, and we love you – it’s true. For the past few years, we’ve released records and pretty much always been on tour, hitting the road on our own, with fellow bands, and have been lucky enough to open for a few heroes. From living rooms and basement clubs, to theaters and arenas, we just love playing shows, and truly love being on the road.



Our fans (the pack) are our greatest priority – we love them, we really do, and we do our best to insure them that we can’t do this without them. Our message is one of acceptance, not in a circle sitting kumbaya bullshit way, but in a way of acknowledging that we all have shit we regret, we all have passions and opinions, and it’s up to all of us to filter through our flaws and our regrets to find ourselves and love one another. Don’t judge other people, do your best to have a good time in life, and care about everybody, like EVERYBODY everybody. Our shows are rowdy, you’ll break down your walls and realize you’re not in this alone. We hope you come to a show, make our songs apart of your story, and live the best fucking life you can.



Cheers,



Jared & The Mill
Kolars - (Set time: 8:45 PM)
Kolars
KOLARS is a band of two members.

Rob Kolar sings and strums his rollicking guitar, Lauren Brown uses her whole body as a percussive instrument.

THE BOTTOM LINE: "The dynamic duo is eclectic in every sense of the word. Kolar, who can only be described as a cosmic Elvis, sang with gusto while his counterpart provided the raw power that kept their steam engine sound chugging along. And with a musical style ranging from what they term 'Desert Disco' to 'Space Blues' (which is just as entertaining as it sounds), there was never a dull moment on stage."

CONSEQUENCE OF SOUND: "Crafted like a grooving ’70s country song carved out of the gleaming vibrations of modern rock, the track pulsates right into your chest. It takes your heart by the hand and leads you to the dance floor, daring you to not feel motivated to dance, shimmy, just escape the mundane."

BUZZBANDS: "Is it normal to imagine that all husband and wife bands rehearse naked? Or maybe it’s just that this particular sexy duo share the kind of on-stage chemistry that comes from knowing each other so well, musically and biblically, which sets the imagination a’sizzling. Kolar, with his rocker swagger, and Brown, licking her lips as she uses her whole body to tap and smack out the beats."

FEST FIFTY: "With gumption and undeniably well-written songs, KOLARS has burrowed through the consciousness of their hometown and beyond, paving a road of lullaby disco anthems wriggling their way across the Mason Dixon. An iconic moment and further proof that the band is so great at what they do was especially apparent during their performance at Tractor Tavern in Seattle."

BANDSINTOWN: "KOLARS is a highly experimental duo committed to creating a new sound that will thrill audiences all over the world. Singer and guitarist Rob Kolar is the mastermind behind their production, writing and mixing the material himself. Drummer Lauren Brown has created her own style of percussion where she dances out rhythms on a bass drum with her feet. They’ve successfully created an infectious, innovative sound that combines both folk and dance music."

KOLARS has created a sonic world that straddles self-described genres such as Desert Disco, R&Beyond, Space Blues, and Glam-a-billy . Rob produces, mixes, and writes the material. His studio experimentation is incorporated into the live show. Lauren has invented her own drumming style. She tap dances rhythms with her feet atop a bass drum while simultaneously playing a stand-up kit. She uses this dance to transform beats into natural extensions of her movement. The two perform with energy, sweat, and excitement, thrilling audiences with their unabashed exuberance.

As members of glam-folk band He's My Brother She's My Sister, Rob and Lauren toured the U.S. and Europe extensively and sold out venues in every major city across the states, playing Bonnaroo, Summerfest, Voodoo, Firefly, Secret Garden Party, and Austin City Limits, and performed on late night television (Craig Ferguson).

The band has taken their influences and experiences into a new futuristic realm with KOLARS.
Banta - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
Banta
If you thought Banta‘s “Dark Charms” was a Fleetwood Mac B-side at first listen, you wouldn’t be alone. The Echo Park-based indie pop sextet’s songs embody so much of the same smooth pop folk-rock swing we’ve got a hunch that their self-titled EP (slated for a June release) is only the tip of the iceberg. Comprised of Sharaya Mikael (vocals/guitar), Kristin Hardin (vocals), Jon Marcu (drums), Scott Clear (lead guitar), Steve Oh Grohne (bass) and Alathea Reece (keys), Banta is a fairly new band but songs such as “Three Feet From Gold” and “Someday” filter their classic rock influences exceptionally well. There’s both charm and a fierceness in their songs that will have you grooving long after listening.
