The Dirty Diamond - (Set time: 10:30 PM)
The Dirty Diamond
Blending a sweet mix of classic American and British infused rock, folk, and Eastern/Armenian tinges, The Dirty Diamond takes listeners on a colorful musical journey. Their soulful and melodic writing creates a vast space in the theater of the mind and heart.

Since the band’s inception, The Dirty Diamond has released 2 albums: "The Dirty Diamond" (produced by Sebu Simonian of the band Capital Cities) and "Our Divine and Sovereign Mother". A fixture on the Los Angeles rock scene, The Dirty Diamond has headlined at iconic venues such as The Troubadour, House of Blues, The Hotel Cafe, and The Viper Room. As an opening act, The Dirty Diamond recently performed at LA’s Greek Theatre.

Some of the band’s collaborations include recordings with pianist Tigran Hamasyan, vocalist Durga McBroom of Pink Floyd, and World Musician Arto Tucboycian.

DD band members, accomplished professionals in their own right, have toured and/or recorded with artists such as Shania Twain, Todd Rundgren, Macy Gray, Serj Tankian, Linda Perhacs, Mika, Keb' Mo, Mindi Abair, Florence + The Machine, James Blunt, Juanes, Andra Day, and more.

The Dirty Diamond are currently hard at work on a new album, set to be titled "Brand New Vintage".
Los Einstein - (Set time: 9:30 PM)
Los Einstein
Los Einstein blends the swagger of raw rock-n-roll with classy jazzmelodies and the smooth-grooved drive of funk and soul to create a new sound for today’s air waves.

When a charismatic singer from New York, Matt Einstein, met writing partner/guitarist, Chris Vazquez, they both agreed “there is, sadly, a growing acceptance of mediocrity in craftsmanship among American culture”. When this project was conceived, they both determined Los Einstein’smusic would be an uncompromising mix of talent and innovative, original song writing.

With the addition of Drummer - Dave Lewis,
California native Bass Player - Justin Smolian and Alaskan Sax Player - Kyle O'Donnell, the Los Einstein sound is organically and uniquely created.

"Los Einstein is not about over produced studio tracks. We play music that is natural, that can be played anywhere, at any time, no special effects or gimmicks. We focus on writing.
- Justin Smolian - Bass

“We play what we feel while keeping an open ear to each others influences and styles. There is no formula being catered to."

-Chris Vazquez – Guitar

Los Einstein pulls styles and influence from many different eras and genres and strives to be innovative in their approach. Having just released their first record "Can't Let The Dream Die”, now working on their second Los Einstein is making a bold and positive musical statement, going against the pop music grain and hoping that like minded musicians and fans will support.
