Arms Akimbo - (Set time: 10:15 PM)
Arms Akimbo
Arms Akimbo is a 4-piece rock outfit comprised of Peter Schrupp, Christopher Kalil, Matthew Sutton and Colin Boppell; and their story is simple. After meeting in college, they formed a band inspired by artists like Portugal. The Man, Local Natives, and Hippo Campus. They self-produced their EP, “Vignettes” and found immediate success, soon opening for WALK THE MOON, Said The Whale and Colleen Green. They began gigging around California at venues including The Roxy, Levi's Stadium and The Bootleg Theatre and paired up with producer Stephen Gomez (The Summer Set) for three subsequent singles.

Their track, “Michigan” went viral on Spotify with over 900,000 plays -- reaching #48 on Spotify’s Global Viral Chart, #45 on the US Viral Chart, and #7 on the Canada Viral Chart in its first month of release. They followed these singles with sold-out release shows and a sold-out Echo Park Rising performance.

On the heels of a Santa Monica Pier Twilight Series performance opening for The Animals to thousands of people, Arms Akimbo released two new singles in the Fall, an E.P. to be released early 2018 and are gearing up to take their place in the indie rock scene.

“Emotional, full-throttle indie-rock propelled by galloping rhythms and sharp guitar riffs" - BuzzbandsLA
Exes - (Set time: 9:15 PM)
Driven by post-youth nostalgia and the people of their past, EXES—a venice beach duo fronted by Allie McDonald and Mike Derenzo— invite listeners into the whimsically romantic world of their design.

McDonald and Derenzo met while attending Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles. Allie was recording and uploading original songs to YouTube while Mike produced and made beats for a number of projects. Her intimacy combined with his intricacy allowed the duo to form a detail-oriented sort of pop, equal parts affectionate and vulnerable in production, lyrics, and melody.
Goldensuns - (Set time: 8:30 PM)
Goldensuns is a Los Angeles-based band founded by three brothers: Chase (bass/lead singer), Jantzen (guitar/vocals) and Weston Meier (drums/vocals). While coming of age in Salt Lake City, Utah, Goldensuns wrote, produced, engineered and released their 2011 debut EP, Wine Country, under the name Golden Sun. This DIY method that they employed on Wine Country became the formula that the band would employ with all of their ensuing recordings.

Still in their teens, the band started booking shows as they continued to write and record new material. In 2013, the eponymous Golden Sun EP was released, leading the band to experience their first taste of success. The EP debuted as Bandcamp's number one overall seller, and this momentum continued as the single "Kings Cup" was sampled in Bass King Vs. X-Vertigo's "Kings," which is licensed under Tiesto's Musical Freedom imprint. Tiesto himself has used the song in many of his live sets.

Golden Sun EP led to a 2013 US tour in which the band regularly played 1,000-1,500 cap venues. The EP's success is still being felt , as "Kings Cup" gained further renown with a feature in a May 6, 2015 episode of CSI Cyber. As of today, Golden Sun EP has been streamed over 200,000 times in addition to its 6,000 plus copies sold.

The success of Golden Sun EP led the brothers to move to Los Angeles, where they currently reside. Goldensuns is currently recording their next project, which has already seen commercial success with the feature of "I Feel This Place" in a Billabong Spring 2015 campaign. In addition, The Wild Honey Pie recently filmed a live performance of "Give It Up" and "Gold Chains", two new singles. Goldensuns' new project was released late 2017, which the band looks forward to supporting with their largest tour yet.
