The Dirty Diamond - (Set time: 10:30 PM)
The Dirty Diamond
There’s nothing like the sound of a rock band with true chemistry. It’s undeniable that The Dirty Diamond is a band with a bond that can only be described as a brotherhood. The four-piece has been generating major buzz in its hometown of Los Angeles with their high-energy live show. They’ve headlined some of the most notable venues in Los Angeles.

The Dirty Diamond is made up of some of the finest and most sought-after musicians in Los Angeles. Guitarist Fernando Perdomo is a producer and session multi-instrumentalist who has toured and recorded with Jakob Dylan, Fiona Apple, Todd Rundgren, and many more. Drummer Shay Godwin tours the world with the amazing Andra Day. Bassist Derek Frank currently tours with Gwen Stefani and the legendary Shania Twain. These musicians work hard, but The Dirty Diamond is where their talents shine the brightest. The four lads are best friends and the camaraderie is obvious on and off the stage.

Underneath the intense outer layer of the music is a massive amount of heart and soul, culled from the essence of timeless and boundless rock songwriting. Front man Sam Babayan is a shaman-like troubadour with lyrics and melodies that touch the heart and make you feel alive.

Their new album From The Stars, set for release in June, with the album release show on June 15th at LA's infamous venue The Troubadour. The album was recorded at the legendary Bell Sound Studios in Los Angeles, where icons including Johnny Cash, Stephen Stills and Brian Wilson have created some of their most memorable works. The band's live sound is captured perfectly, as the basic tracks were recorded live. Vintage equipment was used on every song, giving From The Stars a timeless feel that will attract a wide age-range of fans.

Passionate performances are all over the 10 songs that make up From The Stars. The first single, "Going Through Changes" is a high-energy duet with Andra Day that bridges the gap between Psychedelic Rock and Gritty R&B. Babayan and Day trade lines effortlessly while the band grooves with reckless abandon.

The Dirty Diamond is ready to shine. Join the tribe and get ready for the ride of your life.
State To State - (Set time: 9:30 PM)
State To State
Hailed as the Los Angeles flag bearers of atmospheric alternative rock, a landscape forged by such bands as Queens of the Stone Age, Radiohead and Interpol, State To State has been a staple on the Hollywood music scene since 2014 with their acclaimed self-released LP and EP. They’ve routinely enjoyed sold out shows at the Troubadour and The Roxy as well as residencies at The Hotel Café, The Viper Room and others, which quickly led to dates on last year’s Warped Tour.



The band also earned the support of legendary Los Angeles rock station KROQ 106.7 FM, who have featured “The Shifter” and “Get Away” on its “Locals Only Countdown with Kat Corbett,” where the songs spent a collective 22 weeks in the top five and were voted #1 a total of seven weeks. This local airplay has even led the way for national and international radio play throughout the U.S. and even breaking the Top 40 in Lima, Peru. Currently in the studio with past Grammy-nominated producer of the year, Johnny K , State to State is smoldering away working on a brand new LP to be released this summer. Stay tuned here for more information as the band will also be hitting the road in support of the new music as well.
Peyote Radio - (Set time: 8:40 PM)
Peyote Radio
"Formed in 2018, Peyote Radio is currently working senseless day jobs to support their various bad habits and surly lifestyles. Riveting examples of which include crocheting, Mexican War re-enactments, cataloging Americas many wondrous shoe trees and gravity hills, santeria, yarn painting, yelling at clouds, and when they find the time, playing a bit of music. These howling troglodytes will be releasing their first EP on June 20th entitled, "Midnight in Palms". "We're just so excited to be finally offering our super mega-important EP to the masses. It's nifty, keen and it's really gonna knock those kids socks off it will!" says lead singer and known scoundrel Sean Nolan. Peyote Radio would like to thank the academy, their friends and family, and of course Satan."
Paul Greene - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
Paul Greene
Paul Greene was born with music in his bones… born into a musical church family with Mom playing organ and piano, and Dad the guitar, playing drums and being surrounded by music all his life. Picking up the guitar and piano at 19 and writing and recording several demos and limited releases in his 20’s. Through a series of fortunate events and his YouTube channel, Paul was asked to play Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” with Tim Janis’s Symphony and 200 person choir for Kate Winslet’s Golden Hat foundation. Paul will be performing at Carnegie hall again this year on Dec 2 2019.

As a result of that show and connecting with producer Sam Babayan, Paul reconnected to music and started writing and recording again. Greene recently released a full length album “Freedom For Your Soul” and performed at the Hotel Cafe, June 15th at the Troubadour and again at Carnegie Hall. The music of Paul Greene has been described as cinematic Country, Americana with a Gospel soul. A portion of proceeds from the album go to benefit ALS research and Autism awareness through www.als.net and the Golden Hat Foundation.
