Harris Grade - (Set time: 9:50 PM)
Harris Grade
Harris Grade is a Southern California rock band best known for their energetic live shows and tireless work ethic. In mid-2010, Harris Grade launched their first self-released full-length, Lipstick Politics, with a CD release show for a packed house at the Troubadour in West Hollywood. The band recently released a music video for the title track that featured cameos from Max Green, of Escape the Fate, and Jewel Shepard, star of The Return of the Living Dead.

Harris Grade’s first studio EP, Hold on for Your Life, gained the attention of fans around the world and is currently distributed by Powerslave Records in Japan. Their music video for the album’s title track aired on MTV Japan and Space Shower TV in 2009.

Since the debut of Hold on for Your Life, Harris Grade continues to draw crowds at popular Southern California venues such as the Troubadour, El Rey Theatre and House of Blues. The Lipstick Politics release show kicked off a series of shows at venues in the western U.S. to showcase the band’s new material and explosive live performance style. The group celebrated their latest accomplishment when they earned a spot on the Vans Warped Tour through the Ernie Ball Battle of the Bands.

Guitarists Caleb Healey and Alex Von Hollen formed Harris Grade in 2006. Later that year the two began collaborating with vocalist Robyn August, who ultimately joined the band, followed by Jason Friday and drummer Greg Fulleman in 2008.

The band recently recorded a new three-song EP with producer Erik Ron (Saosin, Panic! At The Disco, Foxy Shazam, D.R.U.G.S.).
The Hush - (Set time: 10:40 PM)
The Hush
With powerhouse vocals, memorable melodies and catchy lyrics backed by riff-rock guitars, grooving bass lines, and solid drums, THE HUSH is original, infectious, fresh and in-charge.

The convergence of these seasoned professionals has resulted in endless creativity and great momentum. Having recently finished recording their debut EP, Scene of the Crime, and playing a few 'hushed' shows in LA, THE HUSH is on the assault.
Matt Von Roderick - (Set time: 11:30 PM)
Matt Von Roderick
He rocks the trumpet. He sings. He writes songs. Classic. Cutting-edge. Raw. Emotional.

A product of the vigorous New York City arts scene, Matt made his Carnegie Hall main stage debut as featured guest soloist with the New York Pops Orchestra through the invitation of Skitch Henderson, and was named top Jazz Artist by the Independent Music Awards as judged by rock music icon Lou Reed. Matt creates what All About Jazz calls "an other-worldly sound...something of a tour de force, he sings, plays, and uses his voice as a muted horn in a solo and duet with the trumpet..."


The son of violinist Alvin Shulman and pianist Elizabeth Von Stackelberg, Matt started playing music on violin and piano at ages 3 and 4, moved to the baritone horn, and eventually found his gift as a trumpeter, singer and songwriter. Possessing a rare combination of commercial and progressive aesthetics, Matt has toured internationally, recorded and/or collaborated with such diverse artists as: Neil Diamond, Musiq Soulchild, Brad Mehldau, Super Furry Anilmals, DJ Spinna, John Corigliano, Lenny Pickett, Robert Sadin, John Medeski from MMW, Complexions Dance Company and Nneena Freelon. His work as a performer has been featured on NBC's Saturday Night Live, the nationally syndicated presidential race coverage on MSNBC, and as both soloist and composer at Lincoln Center and the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. Classically trained by Mark Gould of the Juilliard School, Matt has given New York and world premieres of Edward Green's "Concerto in C", Marcello Toledo's "Solitude of the World", Timothy Newman's "Intervening Rift", and his own "Works for Trumpet". Matt earned his Bachelor's of Music from the Oberlin Conservatory, and a Master's from New York University which he attended on fellowship through the Alberto Vilar Global Fellowship in the Performing Arts, dubbed "The Rhodes Scholarship of the Performing Arts".


After finishing music school, Matt found a calling inside to begin connecting with audiences in a more direct and intimate way. He rediscovered his singing voice and penchant for writing pop songs - his first vocal performance was at his Bar Mitzvah when he was 13 years old, and he had written and sung his first pop song while in high school. Along with Matt's return to singing immediately came comparisons to a young Chet Baker. His first commercial release, under the name Matt Shulman and through the independent label Jaggo Records in 2007, focused largely on this direction, earning him critical acclaim as "a post-millennial Chet Baker" (The New York Times), "an amalgamation of Miles Davis and Radiohead a modern day Chet Baker with a far seeing vision" (All About Jazz) and "A top drawer trumpeter who also sings like an angel obscured by a storm cloud" (JazzTimes).

Matt currently resides in Los Angeles, where he is honing and developing the sound he hears in his mind's ear. Stay tuned for the forthcoming album.
The Modern Drone - (Set time: 8:10 PM)
The Modern Drone
The Modern Drone was formed in 2009 by Jonathan Schwab, James Karlin, and Sam Nusbaum. They began their career by writing songs and playing house parties in Los Angeles. Their influences include The Strokes, Interpol, Stone Temple Pilots, and The Beatles. Their songs feed on their undeniably catchy melodies. As a new Alternative Rock band, The Modern Drone looks to hit the L.A. club scene with their addictive refreshing sound.
