The Jigsaw Seen - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
The Jigsaw Seen
If you've somehow managed to miss out on the brilliantly innovative music of The Jigsaw Seen over the past 25 years, it's a pity but you're in luck!
Burger Records will be helping to reintroduce the Los Angeles band's masterful mix of Art Rock, Psych, Garage and Americana in a Guided By Voices-inspired campaign by releasing a singles and rarities collection, "The Jigsaw Seen For The Discriminating Completist" in Summer 2016.

The band's previous releases this decade, "Old Man Reverb" (2014), "Gifted" (2012), "Winterland" (2011) and "Bananas Foster" (2010) received great reviews from UNCUT (UK), The Sunday Times (UK), The Independent (UK), The Daily Mirror (UK), Blurt, Glide, Babysue, Big Takeover, Dagger, PopMatters, All Music, iTunes and countless weekly and daily papers, also appearing on numerous “Year End Best Of” lists in the US, UK, Spain, Sweden and Norway. Tracks have been featured on NPR’s “Song Of The Day” and Magnet magazine’s “MP3 Of The Day.” The albums appeared on the CMJ Top 200 chart, reaching the Top 10 at numerous radio stations in the US and Canada and receiving airplay in the UK, Japan, Australia, Germany, The Netherlands, Spain and South America.

The Jigsaw Seen's music has been heard in the television series "Futurama," "Shameless," and "Wilfred" among others and will be featured in the upcoming theatrical film "Who Gets The Dog?" starring Alicia Silverstone.

The list of bands that opened for The Jigsaw Seen in the '90s includes the Smashing Pumpkins and Kara's Flowers (Maroon 5.)

Jonathan Lea and Tom Currier of The Jigsaw Seen recently performed with Ray and Dave Davies of The Kinks at their historic reunion in London on Dec. 18, 2015.

The Jigsaw Seen have been nominated for a Grammy and an LA Weekly Award.
New York Junk - (Set time: 7:00 PM)
New York Junk
Based in New York City, New York Junk are influenced by The Velvet Underground, The Stooges, The MC5, The Sonics, The Heartbreakers and early Rolling Stones.
New York Junk's “Doing Time In New York City” was chosen as the #1 Record Of The Year by Joe Whyte at Vive Le Rock and Gus Ironside at Louder Than War.
Max’s Kansas City and CBGBs alumni Joe Sztabnik of New York Junk wrote the original version of “Poison Heart” with Dee Dee Ramone.
As a member of The 'B' Girls, bassist Cynthia Ross toured with The Clash, The Ramones, The Dead Boys and Blondie and also sang back-up on Stiv Bators' “Disconnected” and Blondie’s “Auto American.”
The Lavender Scare - (Set time: 6:00 PM)
The Lavender Scare
The Lavender Scare is an ambitious indie rock band from Los Angeles, CA. Their sound is a unique blend of catchy melodies and dense arrangements inspired by multi-instrumental rock acts like Radiohead, Arcade Fire, and Wilco. Lead singer James Delos Reyes mixes the cynical and brooding with satirical playfulness alluding to a vocal temperment like Fiona Apple and borrowing humor akin to political cartoons. His experience of being gay and growing up in the Evangelical church is often reflected in the music. Songs like "Non-Denominational Heretic" and "Drag for a Queen" are characteristic of the lyrical playground that intertwines their melodies. At the same time, the Lavender Scare maintains a spirit that's infectious, engaging, and universal to indie rock fans everywhere. Even fundamentalists will secretly be tapping their toes while shaking their fists.
Late Slip - (Set time: 5:00 PM)
Late Slip
Late Slip melds grunge, 60's pop and garage punk to deliver a sound that’s infectious and distinctly West Coast. Think Veruca Salt + The Smithereens + The White Stripes.
