Kill the Academy - (Set time: 9:45 PM)
Kill the Academy
Kill The Academy is a 5 piece rock band from Los Angeles, CA. Formed in the summer of 2003 by guitarist Kyle Peters in North Carolina, Kill The Academy has had a many line-up changes, but finally settled in with drummer Michael Thomas, singer Mao, bassist Zac Edwards and guitarist Sean de La Tour. Kill The Academy started 2011 by releasing their debut EP The Taking, recorded and produced by themselves and remains an independent project.

In order to avoid being a product of your own environment, you must do what is necessary to stand out. For a Los Angeles rock band, this proves to be a task nothing short of Impossible. Kill the Academy has made the exception, and is raising the bar musically and interactively with their new EP The Taking which is currently being supported by heavy live appearances around the Los Angeles area, with cross country touring soon to follow. www.killtheacademy.com
Dead End Amelia - (Set time: 10:30 PM)
Dead End Amelia
Armed with a penchant for 90's rock, pensive female singers, scotch, and timeless songs, long-time close friends Dean Dichoso and Krista Lee needed to tell their own stories of love, rejoice, and anger (otherwise kept secret) their own way. . . unadulterated but safely under the guise of their songwriting. Both writing music and penning lyrics, they started an alternative/hard-rock band, and Dead End Amelia was born in 2008. DEA attracts fans of bands like Deftones, Flyleaf, A Perfect Circle, and Helmet. The cast includes good friends, Craig Guidry on drums, and Los Salcedo on bass.

Dead End Amelia, an alternative hard rock band some may describe as "Art-Rock," most likely due to the band's hard rock, metallic sound with progressive ventures into ambient, even urbanesque trip-hop and alternative-indie. DEA has released 2 EP's to date, There's a Bright Side to All of This (2010), and The Point of No Return (2011).

The band is steadily attracting the hearts of new fans by the day due to their prolific release of new media materials like high-quality rehearsal videos and new music at a quick pace between larger releases. DEA has been seeing fan bases gathering in large numbers to sold-out and nearly sold-out audiences in their local Los Angeles scene. DEA is currently working on their third EP to be released in the fall of 2011.
Sad Robot - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Sad Robot
Sad Robot is an L.A. based band on the rise. Their unique sound, blending quirky singer/songwriter with angst driven indie rock has been described as post apocalyptic and hopeful at the same time. Cutting, emotionally charged lyrics, find a home in melody and rhythm through performances by Katherine Pawlak, whose honesty in every raw emoted note is mesmerizing whether seducing you with lulling whispers or soaring belts. Their recently debuted album titled “The Beginning of the End” has already started to buzz around the Hollywood scene. Writing the title song, “The Movie”, for the upcoming feature film Look At Me (2011) and a 2010 HMMA Nominee for their song “Little Miss Bi-Polar”. Sad Robot took the stage as the sole musical guest of the LA Kings at the Staples Center on St Patty’s Day (2011), sponsered by 98.7 fm/Rocco’s Music Night/Schecter Guitars . Their determination to act out lyrically against all who stand in any Under Dog’s way or Rise above any struggle is hypnotically expressed in every song. Whether you are heartbroken or hopeful- you can relate to every word. You can catch them on the Sunset Strip at the Roxy, Viper Room, HOB and others.

Nature By Numbers - (Set time: 7:30 PM)
Nature By Numbers
nature 8y numbers is a southern-california based progressive rock band formed in 2010. long time friends and collaborators, guitarist garret bever and bassist chris golen and newfound music soulmate, drummer john hoik, began writing music. unbeknownst to them, this music would soon become the foundation for a project that would prove to be their most ambitious. they created a brand of rock with substance and dynamic while pushing the boundaries and limitations of rhythm and structure.

soon thereafter, experienced guitarist joel martinez came to the group, adding ethereal tones and exotic chordal voicings. this wasn't to be a rock band directed toward super-stardom and monetary gain, it was to be a collective centered around solid musicianship and encouraging personal creativity. for several months the foursome worked tirelessly to redefine and craft their sound, while searching for a unique, talented vocalist: one who could add a spirit to the soaring twists and wrenching, explosive movement of the music. the band held several rounds of vocal tryouts with limited success. there were many talented singers, but none who quite fit the expectations and hopes of the whole group. they then contacted an experienced local vocalist named thomas golden, who was conveniently available to work with a new project. the collaboration was extremely successful, and the band began to create as a cohesive unit.

nature 8y numbers strives to continue to stay true to their unique path, unwavered by the pop trends and musical stigmas plaguing the music industry, with the goal of achieving something new and exciting. this is where their story truly begins...
