NO - (Set time: 10:15 PM)
NO
After a spate of personal misadventures in 2010, NO was born through
the chance encounter of Bradley Hanan Carter and Sean Daniel Stentz
at a local LA diner. Bonding over stories of disastrous relationships as
well as their mutual admiration for storytelling artists like Leonard
Cohen, Bill Callahan, Johnny Cash and Lou Reed, the two decided to
unite and build something for themselves.
Native New Zealander Carter states, We wanted something to believe
in. It sounds kind of dramatic, but there was really nothing to wake up
for at the time. This came at a stage when he found himself divorced,
bankrupt and experiencing a new kind of alone after deciding to walk
away from the lifelong religious beliefs of many friends and family
back home. I think for some of us, we’ve been so worried about where
we'll go when we die, that we've never really thought about where we
should go while we're still alive.
Fast forward a few months, add in more like-minded band members
and NO was on the way to being fully formed.
In July 2011 they recorded the debut EP Don’t Worry, You'll Be Here
Forever and released it via their website on 11.11.11. We were trying
to create something for ourselves that was positive and honest,
explains Stentz.
After the release of the EP, NO quickly gained recognition with the
local Echo Park crowds, and both NME and the LA Times tipped them
as an act to keep a close eye on. 2012 saw them wrack up over 100 live
shows, including supports for Best Coast and Electric Guest, and a
European tour with Father John Misty. In 2013 the band returned to LA
for a sold-out headline show at The Troubadour and performed at
international festivals including London’s Hard Rock Calling and
Germany’s Southside and Hurricane, as well as supporting the likes of The Smashing Pumpkins, Public Image LTD and The Naked and
Famous.
The six piece are now looking forward. Newly signed to tastemaker
record label Arts & Crafts, NO have just finished their self-produced
debut album El Prado. Mixed by Billy Bush (Tegan & Sara, Foster
The People, Jake Bugg) and mastered by Joe LaPorta (Beach House,
Foo Fighters, Vampire Weekend), the album will see a North American
release on February 18, 2014.
NO is Bradley Hanan Carter (Vocals), Sean Daniel Stentz (bass), Reese
Richardson (guitar), Ryan Lallier (guitar/keys), Simon Oscroft (guitar)
and Michael Walker (drums).
James Supercave - (Set time: 9:15 PM)
James Supercave
Opaque in an age of Internet transparency, James Supercave's approach to pop stardom is a bit less visible and a little more strange.

Beyond the fragmentary web presence, the pixel personality, the blogger hearsay-to know James Supercave is to listen to the music. Supercave assumes the pop idiom, filling its dimensions (drums, synth, guitar, bass, vocals) while continually charting its fringes. The result: modern eccentricities thrown Pollock-like against psych pop-a sound that is cerebral in lyric and muscular in command of beat and groove.

Whether in winking jabs at corporations, or in frustration anthems angled at the internet native, James Supercave offers an uncompromising mirror to life's edges: the smooth, the rough-hewn, the odd-angled. James Supercave, the pixelated face of many, offers urgency to preserve the human in it all.

After sharing stages with Future Islands, Warpaint, Chet Faker, and Jungle, James Supercave partnered with Fairfax Recordings for their debut LP, Better Strange. Supercave is currently on tour, with the album set to release in February 2016.
Thrillionaire - (Set time: 8:30 PM)
Thrillionaire
In Thrillionaire, Jen Turner, formerly of Here We Go Magic, picks up the guitar again, revisiting her days with Natalie Merchant, with Henrietta Tiefenthaler on bass, programming and sound design, & Nate Walcott from Bright Eyes on keys. Henri and Jen sing lush, polyphonic melodies over hard motorik beats drawn from classic Krautrock bands like Can and Neu! ...with a touch of Stereolab and Pink Floyd thrown in the mix.

Their highly anticipated debut album will be finished by the end of this year with its release scheduled for summer 2013.
