Knox Hamilton - (Set time: 9:50 PM)
Knox Hamilton
Brothers Boots and Cobo Copeland have been making music together their entire lives. From an early age, they self-taught themselves drums, guitar, and bass, filling their pastor father’s church with songs bathed in light and life. It’s the bond between Boots and Cobo that gives Knox Hamilton’s music a degree of familial intuition; a genetic thread of energy running between the two.

Knox Hamilton (comprised of Boots and Cobo and their longtime buddy and talented guitarist Drew Buffington) doesn’t make songs by mistake. Rather, they work hard at their craft, stacking gorgeous vocals on top of relatable lyrics and restless melodies. Every note, every chord, every lyric is intentionally created to wrap your mind in a warm embrace while still setting your soul free to wander the cosmos. One listen to the first single “Washed Up Together” from their debut album The Heights and you’ll agree the result is hard to argue with.

Before The Heights, the band released a 4-song EP called How's Your Mind that featured the runaway single "Work It Out." The addictive tune raced to the top of SiriusXM's Alt18 charts and reached "near-Adele levels on alt-rock radio" (Huffington Post), garnering KH the hard-earned respect of the indie rock community and over 7.9 million streams on Spotify. And that was just the beginning. Knox Hamilton is poised to break into the zeitgeist with innovative new songs filled with blistering electricity that still remind you of something real and familiar.

Creating music that nods to their small-town church roots while dedicating themselves to their far-reaching artistry, Knox Hamilton is a band built to last. And Boots, Cobo, and Drew are prepared to make that happen.
NONA - (Set time: 8:40 PM)
NONA
NONA, led by Los Angeles-based Michael Goldman, is a nod to Goldman's truest self. Through touring and writing with various bands, including Awolnation, Goldroom, Sego, The Moth & The Flame and Meg Myers he has developed a musical aesthetic all his own. Michael states that NONA was propelled as the result of him “feeling the pressure to create and realize something on my own without compromise”. Buzzbands LA remarks “Michael Goldman practices songcraft that belies his years”
The project’s moniker NONA, what he calls his grandmother, aptly characterizes the depth of personal reflection embedded in each song. Curious, passionate, understated, and even a bit out there, the bedroom-birthed indie band is driven by authenticity. NONA blends groove-driven indie rhythms with surf-like guitar tones and heartfelt vocals sure to catch your ear and inspire a unique sense of nostalgia song after song.

NONA released its Debut 5-track EP October 20, 2017 through Los Angeles indie label WAX LTD.
Alex Di Leo - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
