Lord Huron - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
Lord Huron
In the spring of 2010 Ben Schneider traveled easterly from Los Angeles to Northern Michigan. He spent a week at the site of his childhood retreats: the shores of Lake Huron. It was there he set to work developing a batch of songs and a week later, the first Lord Huron EP was complete. He named the recording, Into the Sun.

Upon his return to L.A., Ben set to work putting a band together. He called on his percussion-playing childhood friend Mark, who was in Nashville after performing for a time in the Caribbean. Mark swiftly packed up his drums and other gadgets and drove across country to California. The boys then recruited the rest of the Mighty Band, each of whom hail from Michigan.

Lord Huron's music is an auditory travelogue. Evocative of many places, but tied to none in particular. Lush harmonies inspired by Calypso singers, folk traditions and the American frontier fuse with modern experimentation to create the distinctive sound.
The Union Line - (Set time: 9:15 PM)
The Union Line
The Union Line formed in early 2008 in San Juan Capistrano, CA. Drummer Tony Tancredi had been tour-managing bands since 2004 and was booking shows for acts Matt Costa and The Delta Spirit. Together with vocalist Richard Theisen, Johnny Wilson on keys, and brothers Jordan and Adam Sabolick on guitar and bass, the boys of The Union Line played their first show in February 2008 at The Gypsy Lounge. Quickly becoming a staple in the Orange County music scene, the boys recorded their first album, which was released the following summer. They embarked on a DIY west coast tour with friends The Local Natives, playing sold out shows at The Mint and House Of Blues of Anaheim, and caught the attention of One Little Indian Records, who began to license The Union Line’s anthem driven record.

After a successful west coast tour with over 90 shows under their belts, The Union Line got right back to performing and embarked on tour across the U.S. At the beginning of 2009, they were nominated for Best Indie Band, Best New Artist, and Best Album at the O.C. Music Awards. The boys took home the coveted Best Live Band award and played at the awards ceremony held at The Grove of Anaheim. The boys of The Union Line continue to tour and work on new material.
Milo Greene - (Set time: 8:30 PM)
Milo Greene
Milo Greene are cinematic indie-popsters from Los Angeles, comprised
of Robbie Arnett, Andrew Heringer, Marlana Sheetz, Graham Fink and
Curtis Marrero. Arnett, Heringer, and Sheetz met in college, where
they created a fictional character known as Milo Greene, sending out
emails in his name to promote their creative endeavors. After college,
and various musical projects of their own, Arnett, Heringer, and Sheetz
reunited at their very own song-writing retreat at a cabin in the Sierra
Nevada Mountains, directly overlooking a lake, completely secluded
from the background disturbances of big city life. Here, removed from
any day-to-day conveniences like television or the internet, they began
writing and composing their music. As the songs came together, Fink
and Marrero were enticed to join and the entity known as Milo Greene
came to life. The four voices of Milo Greene’s members weave and
blend into one voice, creating songs that live and breathe with the
range of an omniscient, collective consciousness. Their music functions
like that of a symphony, with each voice and instrument standing
strong on its own but coming together to create something beautiful,
transcendent, and ethereal.

“The music of the new L.A. quintet blends two-, three-and four-part
harmonies, serpentine folk-pop melodies and agitated beats into songs
that rejoice a little, ache a little and leave sepia-toned images in your
head when they’re through,” said Buzzbands.la while NPR noted: “Milo
Greene makes folk-tinged music with perfectly blended male-female
harmonies, but they marry that sound with thunderous live drums and
infectious sing along choruses.”

Milo Greene have toured with the likes of The Civil Wars, Grouplove,
and The Belle Brigade; are signed to Chop-Shop/Atlantic Records; and


are in the process of finishing the recording of their debut album which
was recorded at Bear Creek Studios outside of Seattle. The as-yetuntitled
debut, which the members of Milo Greene co-produced with
Ryan Hadlock (Ra Ra Riot, Stephen Malkumus, The Gossip), will be
released in the summer of 2012, coinciding with the launch of an
extensive U.S. tour.
