ACIDIC - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
The hardest-working, hottest young rock band in Southern California - ACIDIC - is at it again! They’re capping off a triumphant Vans Warped Tour ’14 run with a long-awaited mid-summer homecoming at their L.A. favorite: the legendary Doug Weston’s Troubadour! Their set on the Hard Rock Kevin Says Stage of the 20th Anniversary Warped Tour won both raves and enthusiastic crowds, and confirms 2014 as ACIDIC’s biggest year yet!! Plus, this is ACIDIC’s first year touring nationally as headliners, earning such superlatives as “BEST Wednesday night in a year” (Herman’s Hideaway, Denver) and “BEST Monday night EVER” (Machinery Row, Great Falls MT).
ACIDIC will soon go back into the studio to record their next album featuring new songs that have wow’ed ‘em on the road since they were first performed at WJJO-FM’s Acoustic New Year's Eve in 2013. The new album will be produced by multi-platinum award-winner John Ryan of Chicago Kid Productions (Styx, Santana, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Allman Brothers), who helmed their most recent CD “Copper Man.” That album earned ACIDIC a distribution deal with SONY/RED via MegaForce Records, and top-100 rankings on the Mediabase Active Rock charts for months. Motley Crue's Nikki Sixx named both the title track and "Drive Thru" “Sixx Picks of the Week” on his syndicated radio "Side Show." The hilarious, jawdroppingly-insane “Copper Man” video blew past 1,000,000 views on Youtube! ( Critical raves continue to pour in for ACIDIC on CD and onstage! “Frontman Michael Gossard is a force of nature, connecting to his audience and his band mates in ways that make an ACIDIC show highly electrifying.” even hailed Gossard as “gleefully demented”! RUKUS magazine: “These guys aren’t afraid to rock out. Gossard can really wail with his vocal at times and the band is full of energy.” PERFORMER magazine: “Straight from the get go, ACIDIC brings forth its frenetic energy and passionate sound in waves of indie alternative delight. This band brings the goods, with personality and flair unmatched in many West Coast bands.“ ACIDIC's tour history includes routings with Hinder, Trapt, Candlebox, Fuel, Alien Ant Farm, Hawthorne Heights, Filter, Marcy Playground, Smile Empty Soul, and Armed Forces Entertainment for US troops in Kosovo and Germany; Sunset Sessions Rock 2013!, multiple 2Broke 2Rock KHTQ-sponsored festivals in Spokane WA, 2012 Winter NAMM Show at the Anaheim Convention Center, SXSW, Florida Music Festival, Rockin’ Roots Festival, Sunset Strip Music Festival, and Bamboozle Left. ACIDIC's power rocker "Strata Red" won the Alternative category in the 18th Billboard WorldWide Song Contest. ACIDIC consists of lead singer/guitarist Michael Gossard, drummer Matt Whitaker, guitarist Josh Bennett, and bassist Max Myrick.

ACIDIC, which Alternative Press said “Rocks like Funeral Party, Cage the Elephant, Young the Giant,” consists of lead singer/guitarist Michael Gossard, bassist Ted Dubrawski, guitarist/backup vocalist Michael Thompson, and drummer Matt Whitaker.

Last fall, ACIDIC unleashed their latest album, the highly-anticipated “Chronic Satisfaction,” to wild and enthusiastic response! The CD, produced by multi-platinum award-winning producer John Ryan (Styx, Santana, Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Allman Brothers, etc) of Chicago Kid Productions. The strength of “Chronic Satisfaction” inspired Music Reviews to name ACIDIC one of its “12 Bands To Watch in 2012,” and the steamy video of the single "Uninspired" has become a Youtube sensation. They've also toured with Alien Ant Farm, Hawthorne Heights, Filter, Marcy Playground, and The Higher. They’ve also toured Kosovo and Germany, rocking US troops with Armed Forces Entertainment.

In addition to their smash tours, ACIDIC has also played such prestigious gigs as the 2012 Winter NAMM Show at the Anaheim Convention Center, SXSW ’10 and ‘11, two Sunset Strip Music Festivals, and Bamboozle Left. ACIDIC won the Alternative category in the 18th Billboard WorldWide Song Contest in 2011 for their power rocker “Strata Red,” off their 2010 CD “Getting Lucky.”
thatwasthen - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
One word. Lower case. thatwasthen. A band born and bred on the Southern California music scene, TWT has held residencies and rocked famous clubs of LA’s Sunset Strip including the House of Blues, the Key Club, the Whisky-a-go-go and the The Viper Room. They’ve gigged and toured with artists like as Marcy Playground, Fountains of Wayne, and even Shwayze.

With influences from the 50's to the 90's, thatwasthen combines a love for soul-shaking rock and blues with a masterfully modern sensibility. Their lyrics move seamlessly from literary reference to the unpretentious rock vernacular, but always with cleverly crafted imagery or a strategic tug. The overall effect is lightning in a can– a thousand kilowatts of raw energy packaged into a palpably energetic live show.

thatwasthen is "for those rockers nostalgic of the past, and yet, compliant to the musical condition of the present. Inspired by Led Zeppelin, the Doors, and Jimi Hendrix, this fivesome is bringing back the vintage vibes of notorious guitar heroes who set the standards of genuine rock n’ roll. This melodic, up-and-coming band is showing that they’re not playing music for the fame or the fortune, but rather, exploring the subtleties of human consciousness, poetic introspection, and the meaning of life." ~ Meets Obsession Magazine
Waterbear Mating Season - (Set time: 8:15 PM)
Waterbear Mating Season
Hailing from Los Angeles, California in 2010, Waterbear Mating Season started off as your typical house party band. Entertaining their friends and the loyal party patrons, the band would establish a high-energy live performance that would develop their musical talents and create a drive to pursue greater things. In the fall of 2012, the rock quartet would soon take the next step into writing and recording original songs that heavily incorporated their ska/punk roots and taking them to new heights. Bringing in different genres from hip-hop to progressive, the band would make it a goal to continue to evolve and strive for greatness.
The Bad Romantics - (Set time: 7:30 PM)
The  Bad Romantics
A resurgence of rock is brewing out on the Southern California coastline, as the Bad Romantics are preparing to launch their inaugural album 'Hooked' onto music fans across the country. Spearheaded by upstart guitarist and songwriter extraordinaire Albert Garrett, the four man alternative rock unit is pooling their extensive touring and writing experience together for their debut record, Hooked. Supported by a crystal clear talent for hit making and a booming musical IQ, the Bad Romantics are poised to become one of the sensations of 2012.

Loosely formed by Garrett and fellow seasoned Los Angeles rockers Jonny Udell and Jeffrey Covey in summer 2010, the group began to progress into its current shape as initial demo tracks came together. After adding bassist and backup singer Eliot Lorango along with Jason Achilles Mezilis as their mastermind producer/engineer and second guitarist, the Bad Romantics became Garrett’s full-time project in early 2011. Creating a mix of classic rock n’ roll with alternative and indie rock, the Bad Romantics combine influences ranging from Tom Petty to Third Eye Blind and The Black Keys to develop their finely tuned sound.

A songwriter to the core with a stunning passion for the guitar, Garrett has performed alongside international sensations such as Jet, CKY and Fuel, while co-writing a number of tracks for major artists throughout the music industry. His talented pen helped ink “Talking to the Moon” from Bruno Mars’ breakout record Doo-Wops and Hooligans, Cobra Starship’s “Fool like Me,” and Warner Drive’s most recent single, “Faking Smiles.”

The rest of the group illustrates a veritable “who’s who” of the local LA rock scene, having appeared with bands such as OWL, The Knives, Skyler Stonestreet, Matt Toka, Hydrovibe, Them Terribles and many more. While Garrett himself has more than 500 shows under his belt, each distinct member of the team brings their own unique set of skills to the table, all owning considerable US and international tour experience.
With the triumphant foursome pouring their efforts into the summer debut of Hooked, and Mezilis behind the controls, the Bad Romantics already have their formula for success in 2012 mapped out. Mastered by Shelly Yakus (Tom Petty, John Lennon and U2), the first single “By the sea” will light the fuse on this inevitable musical explosion, and is locked and loaded for release through digital retailers this spring.

Garrett and the Bad Romantics are seeking to pack their calendars with show dates as well, scheduling more follow up performances to their recent showcase at the iconic Viper Room in 2012. Get a tantalizing taste of this upcoming LA sensation with streaming audio on their official MySpace, ReverbNation or Facebook pages, and keep your eyes peeled for the official release of “By the sea” and Hooked this year.
SPACEcream - (Set time: 11:00 PM)
Hailing from Hollywood, CA, SpaceCream is a musically and visually stunning Glam Rock band that challenges the norm and is quickly gaining momentum in Southern California.
Winner of the "Battle for Vans Warped Tour '14" contest, SpaceCream never fails to pleasantly surprise audiences with the combination of powerful yet beautiful 70's inspired rock music and truly dynamic stage presence. The band is perhaps best described as "Ann Wilson in David Bowie's edition of Rocky Horror Picture Show."

It's been an exciting first year for SpaceCream! Between Warped Tour, releasing their first album (available on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, etc... ), and landing a Cover Artist feature on popular indie blog PopVulture Magazine, the band has been playing live as much as possible and cultivating an ever-growing community of misfit fans. Classic venues like the Viper Room and House of Blues have housed as many of their shows as alternative ones like the Doll Hut, Loaded, and El Cid. SpaceCream also plays a monthly acoustic set at Gallery Sev Ven.
