KITTEN is an American band fronted by alien-girl vocalist Chloe Chaidez.

As just a teenager, Chloe wowed crowds and earned fans with her off-the-wall performances and earnest recordings.

After years of shuffling line-ups, the stars aligned and placed Chaidez in the company of Dave Stagno (vox, guitar), Max Tsiring (keys), Parker Silzer IV (guitar), and sibling rhythm section Blu and Rex DeTiger (bass and drums, respectively).

The KITTEN 2.0 reboot had a busy 2018, touring relentlessly and releasing the PINK CHAMPAGNE EP and various singles to unanimous praise from the likes Stereogum, Rolling Stone, and The Fader.

New music and more tour dates are right around the corner!

Mirror Talk - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
Mirror Talk
You're young and you embark routinely on these labored, epic train rides across boroughs, testing the seams of your Jansport with blank cassettes, bound for uncle's. You tape LPs from New Order, Prince, and Bowie. At home, Mom & Dad alternate musical selections, Al Green, then Zeppelin. Sam Cooke, then The Beatles. Deposit your newly copied tapes into shoeboxes. Blink and you're a high school senior. New York in the early oughts reclaims disco, house and electro, imbuing these modes with a distinctly punk rock hue. Young wallflowers and budding music nerds are coaxed to cease habitual nose-thumbing and general wet-blanket behavior. They begin to dance.

Inspired, you borrow two synthesizers from parents' Christian-rock band. Start a band of your own. Attract the interest of a producer with a name and manager who manages several of your heroes. Leave college and set up shop in Los Angeles. Indulge endlessly, perform ferociously and frequently. Get offered a modest deal with an immodestly large record company. Discover that well-intentioned handshakes and agreements that had taken place early in the life of the group had become shackles. The resultant music grows bloodless and the band withers.

You move back in with your parents. Join a panel of indie-ish wirehangers who bartered Polo gooses for old leather and acid washed denim, dragging drunken, romantic bones about places you know, holding court with skinny, spectacled, smart-haircut pixies over Jameson and bathroom-coke. Weekend warrior Don Quixote-ing to a soundtrack of Animal Collective, Hot Chip, The-Dream and Diplo.

While at your parents house, by chance of luck, you rediscover the old shoe box containing the decaying magnetic ephemera of your earliest musical loves. The low-bias tapes of Movement, Sign 'O The Times, and Heroes that you'd copied so long ago, all faded and gently distorted. This collection of sounds becomes your conceptual skeleton. You reunite with old friends. Unite with producer Tony Hoffer, (M83, Beck, Depeche Mode) and together, endeavor to imagine what music might bridge your past and your future.
The Aquadolls - (Set time: 7:15 PM)
The Aquadolls
The Aquadolls were founded in Janurary 2012 by Melissa Brooks, the lead singer and songwriter for the band in La Mirada, California. Melissa began recording bedroom demos of her songs and eventually formed a relationship with Southern-California based indie label Burger Records, who released The Aquadolls 'We Are Free EP' in early 2013, and their debut album 'Stoked On You' in December 2014. In June 2018, Brooks made a comeback with the release of 'Bleach 7”’ on her new self-made record label, Aqua Babe Records. “Bleach” and “Runaway” were the first singles for the new album, followed by “Communicationissexy/idkhow2communicate” in September 2018. One month later, The Aquadolls highly anticipated second album “The Dream and the Deception”, recorded and self-produced by Brooks, was released October 28, 2018 on Aqua Babe Records. Having opened for the likes of Kate Nash, Vivian Girls, and The Raveonettes, playing festivals with Weezer, The Growlers, Cat Power, and FIDLAR, co-headlining a tour with SWMRS, as well as headlining a US tour and playing local California shows, The Aquadolls are in-your-face and good vibes all at once with energetic performances that leave you anticipating the next show. Brooks and her all-girl live band pack a punch with tongue-in cheek lyrics, hard-hitting licks, and soothing vocal harmonies that will guarantee a head bang from anyone listening.
