Yeghikian - (Set time: 11:00 PM)
Yeghikian
Born in Hollywood, and raised in Glendale, he is a Los Angeles native through and through. Alexy Yeghikian has been musically inclined since he was a child. Lucky enough to have the support of his family, he pursued his musical dreams throughout his education.


After high school he attended one of the top art institutions in the world, California Institute of the Arts (CalArts) and excelled in his studies in guitar performance. During his time at CalArts, he studied under jazz giant Larry Koonse and world-renowned guitarist, Miroslav Tadic.


Having played guitar from such a young age, and studying under world-class performers, he is now a professional musician, doing session work and touring around the world.


He has performed and remains friends with musical icons such as Bobby Brown, De LA Soul, Monte Pittman (Madonna), Miguel, KRS-one, to name a few, and continued to be a vital part of A.L.O.C., The Booze Hounds, Pancho and Sancho, and numerous other acts.


On his down time he enjoys painting and illustrating, learning to play different instruments, and playing and watching soccer, his favorite sport since childhood. His favorite team is England’s Liverpool FC.


Alexy also enjoys attending live performances of his peers, and most importantly making music and sharing with his friends, family, and fans.


Yeghikian is Alexy’s first solo project and already has a major fan following. There are plans in the works for world domination. Bend to his will or die…
Chameleon Conductor - (Set time: 10:15 PM)
Chameleon Conductor
Chameleon Conductor is a Los Angeles based band that blends the eclectic sounds of its members into their unique brand of “cocktail rock”. Their cryptic and dynamic live shows capture the eyes and ears of a wide spectrum of audiences.

The band has performed at renowned venues such as the El Rey Theatre, The Key Club, The Roxy, The Whiskey A Go Go, and The Viper Room as well as shared the stage with Wu-Tang Clan, Mix Master Mike, The Apex Theory, Money Mark (Beastie Boys), members of System of a Down, and others. They have also had their music featured in the 2011 independent film "Voice of the Unknown: A Paranormal Investigation". The band caught the attention of Shavo Odadjian (System of a Down) who took the role of producer and streamlined their sound.

Soon after, vocalist Vino Alan (X-Factor finalist) joined Chameleon Conductor and together they entered the studio with producer Shavo Odadjian and engineer Florian Ammon (Mariah Carey, Rammstein, U2). A three-song demo was completed in the spring of 2014.
Since then the band has performed at renowned LA venues like El Rey Theater, The Key Club, The Roxy, The Whiskey A Go Go, and The Viper Room as well as shared the stage with acts such as Snot, Mix Master Mike, The Apex Theory, Wu-Tang Clan, Money Mark, Viza, and members of System of a Down.
With a live show that features special guests as well as visuals, Chameleon Conductor’s sound is one that evokes the influences of its members from across the musical spectra—fusing them into a fresh, soothingly aggressive sound that is completely their own.
The band is releasing their debut EP, entitled “Pings Home” (produced by Shavo Odadjian) at this show!
Clepto - (Set time: 9:30 PM)
Clepto
Devoted to the band and each other, Clepto was formed in 2000 in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The four members of the band found themselves in the Middle East as their families moved there for employment. Fred and Phil, two brothers originally from Cyprus, with Armenian and Lebanese ethnic backgrounds, adopted Canada as their home in 2002. Canada is where both Alex and Nick were born and lived before leaving home for Saudi Arabia. Alex, a Portuguese-Canadian, Montreal born Punk Rocker and Nick, a Greek-Canadian, Winnipeg born Metalhead both lead the way with their lyrics covering everything from culture, global issues, religion, to personal conflicts and psychological reflections of themselves within society. Together, with a sing and a bounce from Phil and Fred’s Mediterranean melodic bass and drums, they all complete Clepto.
Green Kard - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
Green Kard
Hi, we are "green KARD"!!! A local Orange County band with a unique sound.

Listen to our versions and arrangements on Armenian classics, as well as our original creations.

We started green KARD as good friends jamming to our favorite songs. Each letter in "KARD" represents an initial for our names. We are inspired by our cause, and the music we grew up with in our homes. There is nothing like good friends communicating with one another through rhythm and melody, complementing each other's unique style and collectively bringing it together as one big puzzle.
