Charming Liars - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Charming Liars
Los Angeles by way of London Alternative Band Charming Liars have been building steadily since their inception. The band has been endorsed by no less an icon than Sir Elton John, who has featured the band's songs on his Apple Music "Rocket Hour" radio show. They have toured with a diverse array of acts such as Jane's Addiction, Night Riots, New Politics and You Me at Six. They are no strangers to big stages and have played at festivals both in and outside the U.S. With the upcoming release of addictive new single "Like A Drug" on April 6th through Chartmaker Inc., and an LP of new material in late June - the band is prepared to have a breakthrough year in 2018.

Charming Liars evolution began in London's West End when Karnig and Mike were still in their teens. They both came from homes with wide ranging and eclectic musical tastes, and that early exposure informed their approach to making music. They started writing and playing together in a series of bands and honed their musicianship with several tours up and down the U.K. In 2013 they decided to make the move to Los Angeles, in part spurred on by an encouraging social media message from songwriter and producer John Feldmann (Panic! at the Disco, Plain White T's, 5 Seconds of Summer, Blink-182) – who told them to look him up for a songwriting session if they were ever in town. They connected with Kiliyan through a mutual friend while he was attending The Musicians Institute in Hollywood. Through initial conversations that lead to songwriting and then recording sessions – the 3 realized that they had an organic musical chemistry that would lead to interesting possibilities. The current line-up was solidified.

Inspired by Alternative and Rock giants like U2, The Police, and Linkin Park, among others - the band pays tribute to their roots while carving out their own unique Alt.Pop sound. "We want to have a big effect on music listeners around the world," Karnig says, "whether it be through the feeling of the music, lyrical content, ideals or even simply friendship". Mike adds "We're most content when we get the opportunity to play the songs we wrote in a live setting. We take great pride in crafting our live show to reflect the recordings we so diligently work on in the studio, to really connect with our fans".

Having released a couple EP's since their arrival in the states, 2016 saw the release of their single "Soul" which reached number #40 on the Alternative Radio Charts and who's video has over 600,000 views on Youtube. A cover of Sir Elton's "I'm Still Standing" was released in the spring of 2017 in conjunction with the Grammy organization's MusiCares arm. The band continued to make inroads @ Alternative radio in the fall of 2017 with "Insomnia", which is still getting residual play at the format.

They have built a following with constant touring, and have played across the entire as well as South America, Mexico, the U.K. and Brazil. Their touring resume includes the Uproar tour, as well as opening for Night Riots, Kings of Leon, Weezer, and Jack White. To support the new "Like A Drug" single, tour dates are being booked for the summer.

Stitched up Heart - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
Stitched up Heart
The new single, “Grave” is on iTunes http://www.itunes.com/stitchedupheart
and is currently in rotation on over 45 internet radio stations. Revolver magazine also premiered the video for "Grave": http://www.revolvermag.com/news/stitched-up-heart-premiere-new-music-video-grave.html
Mixi has been featured and interviewed in Revolver Magazine’s Hottest Chicks in Hard Rock two years in row (#18 in 2011, #11 in 2012). There is also a recent interview in the March 2013 issue of Alternative Press magazine.

Tours in 2013 will support release of a new e.p., currently being produced by Clayton Ryan (Davey Suicide, Natural Born Killers). With Warped Tour, SXSW and other festival performances and a 10 state US tour under their belt, the aggressive drive behind this band is tantamount to their ultimate goal of universal conquest. A violent cacophony of fiery charged emotions makes this a dangerously volatile maniacal machine that commands your attention.

Stitched Up Heart’s passion explodes in an uproar of crunchy guitars, haunting melodies, driving rhythms and anthemic songs. Furious and ultimately rapturous performances led by singer extraordinaire, Mixi, have captivated fans across the nation and around the world. Baron Reventón even christened the band: ‘attention deficit gratification’.

Stitched Up Heart, making other bands suck since 2010.
Knee High Fox - (Set time: 8:15 PM)
Knee High Fox
Knee High Fox is a band based out of Los Angeles CA. It is fronted by songwriter Christine Connolly. Tuesdai Murgia is on drums and Simon Nagel on bass. The band is known for their alternative tongue and cheek style, and you never quite know what will happen at a live show or in any video they release. The band is currently in the studio recording their debut album with heavy weight producer Howard Benson due out mid 2013. They are making quite a statement with their debut single and music video 'Black Widow'. Not suitable for prudes, or the weak stomached, or children unless they're really cool children....;)......Black Widow will be debuting to the world in mid february and as Christine says 'It might be kinda fun, if I drink your blood'... Look out for them on tour in your city, or under your bed.....
