Emerson Star - (Set time: 11:00 PM)
Emerson Star
Sometimes all you need is a simple guitar line and a moody melody. Other times you need dissonant three part harmonies over tantric rhythms and heavy lead guitar fuzz. And once in a while you just need a shot of whiskey and some pickle juice. Well these happen to be a few of Emerson Star's favorite things who record catchy harmony driven tunes for dat ass.

Hailing from Highland Park in Los Angeles, the five piece consists of brothers Shannon and Taylor Inouye, their childhood friends, Sean Thomas and Garret Lang, and drummer Colin Fahrner. The band has made a name for themselves in the Los Angeles music scene, performing regularly at venues such as The Echo, the Satellite and the Bootleg Theater, which led to the band entering the studio with producer Wally Gagel (Best Coast, Muse, Lykke Li) in November 2017 to record new music that will be coming out on Wax LTD Records (Zella Day, Family of the Year).

The bands new album features the lead singles Wasted and Pistol Grip, which is set to be released in the Summer of 2018.
Fell Runner - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
Fell Runner
Fell Runner is a band with “an instinct for the raw, ear-splitting sonic energy it takes to get a crowd to go nuts” (LA Weekly). Formed at CalArts in 2012, the band has performed in Los Angeles and around the West Coast opening up for artists such as Tortoise, ‪Julia Holter‬, Luke Temple, and Big Thief. Originally started as an independent study in applying West African rhythms to pop song forms, Fell Runner's music has been described as “a wicked thicket of prickly guitars, asymmetrical rhythms and raw, emotive vocals: Post-punk meets world music meets math rock, if you will.” (BuzzBands.LA). A band consisting of diverse musicians (current/previous members of HAIM, SK Kakraba, The Americans), Fell Runner brings a wide range of influences to its music placing emphasis on energetic live shows. They released their self-titled debut CD on Los Angeles-based label, Orenda Records, on August 18th, 2015.
Liv Slingerland - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Liv Slingerland
Liv Slingerland is an alternative rock singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist based in Los Angeles, CA. In August 2017, Liv officially self-released her band’s first three singles, “Shouldn’t Bother,” "Hold On To," and "Come Back to Me," each co-produced by Scott Heiner. Slingerland’s music is influenced by catchy, guitar-driven rock and roll bands such as Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Chrissie Hynde and The Pretenders, Joan Jett and The Blackhearts, Nirvana, The Foo Fighters, Green Day, and The Killers. Over the past two years, Liv has been playing live with her band at Los Angeles venues such as the Hi Hat, Harvard and Stone, The Echo, and The Satellite, in addition to local festivals including Chinatown Summer Nights and Echo Park Rising, named the Best Music Festival by LA Weekly (2016).
