Vundabar
There's somewhat of a paradox inherent in Vundabar's songwriting - a conflicting sense of nostalgia contrasted with the realization that they couldn't sound more current. The music they make feels like something that should have been heard a long time ago, while simultaneously continuing to forge ahead sonically. Vundabar's high energy live show is the stand out quality of this band and is an art they’ve undoubtedly perfected by touring non-stop around the country. Vundabar’s shows never fail to be captivating, complete with infectious jams, guitar moves galore, intricate drum work, and humorous stage banter to top it all off, the band has become known for putting on an entertaining show.
Peach Kelli Pop - (Set time: 8:45 PM)
Peach Kelli Pop
PEACH KELLI POP is a band from Los Angeles, CA by way of Ottawa, Canada and was founded by multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Allie Hanlon. The band is known for playing Ramones-structured rock songs: Fast tempos, 4/4 drums, layered with loud guitars, and laden with immediate, infectious vocal melodies. Hanlon’s songwriting is unique in how it encompasses great emotional profundity and the use of the abstract and imagination.

Since Hanlon created Peach Kelli Pop in 2010, she has released 4 albums, a handful of 7’’s and tapes, and toured extensively (including annual trips to Japan).

"Hanlon’s voice: sweet yet detached like the fading flavor of a watermelon Jolly Rancher long crunched and swallowed" -Pitchfork.com

"Sounds like if chiptune foremother Manami Matsumae composed California surf-punk for a Nintendo soundtrack inspired by Shonen Knife playing a sock hop."
-LA Weekly

"Miminalist bubblegum/pre-Chysalis Blondie/Japanese cartoon pop/zero-grit sandpaper punk perfection! This White Wires side project (though this joy bop music is more of a mutiny than a side project by comparison to WW’s garage purity), PKP is more thrilling than PCP!"
-Roctober.com

"Like a lollipop caught in a lint filter, Peach Kelli Pop nestles sticky sweetness beneath layers of cottony fuzz" -WonderingSound.com

"PKP sounds like a thrice-dubbed Archies cassette stuck in fast-forward, or, perhaps, the Chipmunks fronting Nobunny." -FFWDWeekly.com

"PKP has the gleam and cheerfulness of boldly feminine ‘60s girl groups and is suited for any listener with a short attention span: She fits a good amount of melody into a relatively short amount of time" -ConsequenceofSound.net

"Best lo-fi punk popper going now! White Wires drummer, too! NICE!"

Illuminati Hotties - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
Illuminati Hotties
Despite the pluralized nom de guerre, illuminati hotties is the creative outlet of Sarah Tudzin - a producer, engineer, and burrito aficionado hailing from the sprawl of Los Angeles. Armed with bright white shortveralls and a rotating line-up of Sarah's bffs, illuminati hotties has been lighting up stages across SoCal since Fall 2016 with playfully interweaving guitar lines, relentless rhythmic momentum, and strikingly self-aware vocals. Lauded as local "tenderpunk pioneers," illuminati hotties has perfected the blend of sweetness and erocity, of celebration and despondency, in their debut album, Kiss Yr Frenemies, soon to be released on Tiny Engines.

At first listen, illuminati hotties is a sun-drenched, irreverent volley with the onset of adulthood, but as the listener dives deeper, they will find an earnest consideration of musical phrasing and deliberately crafted wordplay regarding the complexity of love, loss, and skateboarding. Illuminati hotties' live show challenges audiences to bring their deepest feels and fiercest moves to the floor, and has elicited comparisons to Best Coast, Angel Olsen, Courtney Barnett, and Alvvays.

Illuminati hotties latest singles have received recognition from various online music sources including NPR Music, The FADER, and Stereogum. Previously, their lead single and music video "(You're Better) Than Ever" was featured on Spotify's Fresh Finds playlist and Indie Shuffle's Best New Music. illuminati hotties is looking forward to touring this summer in support of their new LP and sharing their best Los Angeles taco spot recommendations with the world.
