Yeghikian - (Set time: 11:45 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…
Desecrate - (Set time: 11:00 PM)
Desecrate
Desecrate is a heavy metal band hailing from Los Angeles, California.
Their music is a unique blend of aggression and technical prowess founded by drive and passion. Their catchy melodies, modern edge, and progressive elements give them a sound that distinguishes them from the metal masses.

Hailing from the birthplace of the American metal scene, Desecrate calls Hollywood home. Their explosive live shows have gained them a loyal growing fan base that has allowed them to headline many well known Hollywood clubs including: The House of Blues, The Whisky A Go Go, The Key Club, The Roxy, The Avalon, and The Troubadour. They have shared the stage with many top national metal acts such as: Overkill, Warbringer, Dragonforce, Metal Church, Anvil, Exmortus, and many more.

Desecrate has embarked on multiple nationwide tours, devouring cities and dominating the stage every step of the way. They have played such notable cities as: San Diego, Las Vegas, Phoenix, Denver, Albuquerque, Sioux City, Des Moines, El Paso, and more. No matter the circumstances Desecrate performs at the highest level and delivers greatness every single show.

Desecrate has self released several professional quality recordings. It has always been the band’s philosophy to put out top level material whether or not a record label is part of the equations. Their previous 2012 release “At the Edge of Sanity” is an album that takes a very modern approach on classic metal elements. It will take you from powerful melodic vocals to aggressive angry screams and from fast guitar neck ripping articulations to heavy groove oriented rhythms. Their newest 2015 release promises to push the metal envelope even further.

“Desecrate’s impressive line-up lends itself to the unique blend of old-school thrash with the melodic sensibility of progressive music. Chase Becker’s tasteful and complex phrasing on the guitar makes them a powerful force.” - Chris Broderick (Guitarist of Megadeth)

“Desecrate is a band that is pushing the boundaries of musicianship, songwriting, and stage performance.” - Rock City Magazine

“Desecrate is a reminder that metal music is alive and well. This band knows how to rock and loves to deliver the goods.” - KNAC.com

“Desecrate has SOLD OUT the Whisky A Go Go every time they’ve played, consistently for the past half decade.” - Luke Iblngs M Productions
