Charming Liars - (Set time: 9:20 PM)
Charming Liars
Charming Liars is a British/American rock band based in Los Angeles.

As teens growing up, the trio of talented musicians and songwriters, that make up the core of this dynamic new rock band, were shaken to their young souls by the crunching guitar riffs and memorable melodies that came out of the hard rock capital of the world, namely, Los Angeles.

After making the move across the Atlantic to sign a record deal the band quickly set up residence in a recording studio with legendary producer Bob Rock and set to work on their first E.P. The ‘New Disorder’ E.P was released in August 2013 and the band hit the road in support of it securing a slot on the Rockstar Uproar Tour with Janes Addiction, New Politics and Alice in Chains followed by North American & European support tours.

Mexico was next on the list as the guys travelled south of the border numerous times in 2014 to support the release of the ‘We Wont Give Up’ E.P culminating in a main stage slot at Corona Capital Festival in the heart of Mexico City.

2015 marked the release of brand new music – coming in the form of single ‘Burn’.

With production duties handled by guitarist Karnig Manoukian, ‘Burn’ is a dark and driving example of the bands new sonic maturity. ‘Burn’ spent the majority of 2015 tearing up the airwaves in Mexico and Brazil with heavy rotation on the countries top 40 stations.

Charming Liars released their Delete.Repeat E.P in late 2015, with new singer Kiliyan Maguire stepping up behind the microphone. The band have already finished the follow up to ‘Delete.Repeat’ which is slated for release later this year to coincide with tours in both North/South America and the UK/Europe.
The Brave Ones - (Set time: 10:15 PM)
The Brave Ones
The Brave Ones are a relentless white-knuckle shot of pure musical adrenaline birthed in Los Angeles, California. The Brave Ones came out fighting, armed with attitude-driven vocals, aggressive guitars, thunderous rhythms, and timeless, well-written melodies. The band members are Gene Louis, Amy Jean, Felipe Man Rodrigo, Ben "The Hurrikane" Palmer, "Baby Tate" Sullivan, & Jay Pinfold.
Illumination Road - (Set time: 8:30 PM)
Illumination Road
Many music biz folk in the know have been quietly predicting the resurgence of guitar music in 2013, including BBC Radio 1 head George Ergatoudis, who confidently stated in November 2012 that “guitar music is definitely on the way back.” At the forefront of the movement is the Los Angeles-based duo of Chris Ayden and Chad Shlosser, who together form Illumination Road, a thoroughly 21st Century rock band that nevertheless recalls the passion and intensity of such illustrious forebears as Jimi Hendrix, David Bowie, Pink Floyd, Bob Marley and Led Zeppelin.



Chris Ayden is the singer/songwriter of the duo, with Chad handling production duties. Chris, who numbers Bob Dylan, John Lennon and Ray Davies amongst his songwriting inspirations, hails from the Bay Area of California while Chad, a self-described “studio junkie,” once called Seattle home but now lives in the eclectic, electric seaside community of Venice, California, where he has his own production studio. The pair met in Los Angeles a couple years back and immediately clicked musically, as evidenced by a torrent of songwriting output that will witness the group release not just one, but a pair of debut albums in January of 2014: A Fool for the Dream is a 12-track, fully-produced band album prominently featuring the aforementioned guitars, while Life on the Western Shore is a full-length 10-track acoustic/unplugged effort composed of entirely different songs. The drum tracks for A Fool for the Dream were played by Gil Sharone (Dillinger Escape Plan, Stolen Babies) and recorded at Tranzformer Studios, where they were amongst the last sessions engineered by the late, great Bryan Carlstrom (Alice In Chains, The Offspring). All other production, engineering, mixing and mastering for both albums was done at Chad’s own Area7 Studios in Venice.



Chris and Chad have recruited a top notch five-piece band of international artists to help bring Illumination Road’s sonic visions to the live stage…and what a stage it was, as Illumination Road jetted to Sydney, Australia, to make their live debut at the inaugural Stone Music Festival on April 20-21, 2013, where they shared the stage with the likes of Aerosmith, Van Halen and Billy Joel – a big debut for a bold new band that boasts a big sound and has bigger ambitions.
Mad Moon Riot - (Set time: 7:45 PM)
Mad Moon Riot
Hailing from the sunny United Kingdom, Matt Hitchens and Ru Hazell moved to LA with a fucked-up dream: to start a rock band with a chick named Mia and a fella named Pou. Quite luckily, they found NYC-implant Mia Von Glitz and Cali-native Pou Piam who fit this odd criteria, and the crew joined together in an unholy union of musical rioting. With Ru’s muscle in the back, Matt’s funked-up basslines in the front, Mia’s hot belts (and bod) and Pou’s shreds, together they are Mad Moon Riot.



"Mad Moon Riot – it immediately draws to mind images of something a little crazy, a little wild. And that’s a name well-suited for the riff based, bluesy feeling rock and lead singer Mia Von Glitz’s Steven Tyler meets Shirley Manson feel. With songs like “Running on Empty” and “Knock At The Door” the vibe is a little mad – and a whole lot of fun."

“LA-based rock n’ roll band Mad Moon Riot are the latest thing when it comes to snappy and infectious choruses and plenty of free downloads. Embracing the digital age, Mad Moon Riot offered their tremendous *5 track EP, “*Make Me” over Bandcamp for a free download. Vocalist Mia Von Glitz, previously of Shoot the Freak, has a passionate voice that drives the band forward in a mesmerizing amalgamation of anthemic vocals, catchy rock guitar riffs, a bass to blow the ears, and true rock n’ roll drums.”
