Strelka - (Set time: 10:40 PM)
Strelka
Strelka was initially formed when John Longo moved from Florida to Los

Angeles on a whim when he was eighteen. While still living in hostels he began

writing about some reckless times, and whatnots. Later he moved to South Central he began recording lo-fi demos on shoddy found around devices. Soon after he met drummer Curran McDowell. After only their first show the duet went on to perform at Troubadour and NYC later that year. In early 2011 the two were back in LA at a local dive bar when they met NYC transplant & bass player Liam Flanagan. The three hit it off and after a listen to the band, a trip to the bikini bar and a night of getting proper drunk, the rest is what you see now. Strelka; fun and straight forward in their approach to song writing, are three kids who never over think or under drink, would love to bum you a cigarette, and will still be your friends when 5-am rolls around. Their freshman EP "These Things" will be released later this year followed by a full length album at the beginning of 2012.
MyTMO - (Set time: 9:50 PM)
MyTMO
And along came MyTMo, with a crash cymbal reverberating in your ear drums and you never saw it coming. Born in Los Angeles in the winter of 1998, MyTMo has been carefully nursed by sisters Gina Gina and Lisa. Frontwoman Gina Gina is out of this world, Lydia Lunch refereeing a hair-tugging war between Cyndi Lauper and Gwen Stefani, while Lisa plays the keys like the days when synthesizers were boss and fingerless lace gloves were haute couture. Drummer Mike Svoda and bassist Tony Aldana provide bouncing, thumping beds of rhythm for “Screwy” Louie Anthony to hurl his mad axe-slinging riffs against.
MASQ - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
MASQ
Masq, including 19 year old Singer/songwriter/guitarist Sunny Uppal drummer Animaan Pathak and bassist Charles Horin team up to bash out rock from the city of LA.



Masq originating under a different name finds its roots in Dubai. After having success as a local act in a city not known for music, Lead singer Sunny Uppal decided to take their music out into the real world. Being noticed by a local talent agency they were given the opportunity to open for the band Alien Ant Farm and play Dubai's annual Back2School festival. This then lead to Dubais leading studio Creative Kingdom to offer them a recording session to further develop their set.



Breaking out with an EP in 2009 the band developed their style. However the band had to break up in 2010 due to college. Lead Singer Sunny Uppal Having made connections with current band members Animaan Pathak and Charles Horin in LA kept the band alive under a new guise "Masq." Recording the unheard songs on their new self titled demo.



Masq is currently working on their new EP - MASQ PT. I
Curious Trip - (Set time: 8:10 PM)
Curious Trip
One day, after a lot of thinking and inspiration, we decided to call ourselves "Curious Trip"..We first started off as a couple of kids who grew up in the same neighborhood and now we are a band ready to share our music with Cali. We're working on our first album currently, making progress and awaiting our first release.
Amherst Aisle - (Set time: 11:30 PM)
Amherst Aisle
Amherst Aisle is a piano rock band that met and formed in Irvine in 2009. The band is comprised of the following members:

Ben Kashuk – Piano/Vocals
Michael Klein – Guitar/Vocals
Kevin Leonard – Bass Guitar
Derrick Chan – Drums/Backing Vocals

The four members were friends long before bandmates and some of them lived under the same roof for years on end before becoming Amherst Aisle. Derrick & Kevin were both born and raised in Cupertino, a small town in Northern California and grew up together playing various sports and “jamming” out occasionally in Derrick’s garage. Both of them graduated high school and attended UC Irvine to pursue their higher education. Ben & Michael were both born and raised in Villa Park, a city in Orange County about 20 miles east of UC Irvine. The two of them are lifelong friends first meeting in first grade and also pursued musical interests and collaborations similar to that of their Norcal counterparts.

The two pairings of friends were brought together at the end of 2006 when Kevin & Ben dormed together for their first year of college. The two of them found similar interests in music and shared their friendship with Michael and Derrick. In August of 2008, Ben, Kevin & Derrick all moved into an apartment complex across the street from UCI called Ambrose which resides on the street Amherst Aisle. It wasn’t until March of 2009 that Ben, Derrick and Michael began playing together and got Kevin on board shortly thereafter.

They are a young but talented and determined group of friends that share a common dream to share their music with those big and small and more importantly, have fun.
