The Place - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
The Place
"The Place" is a young Rock & Roll band from Los Angeles, CA. Founded by members Mackenzie Cregan, Clayton Sewelson, and Bobby Victor.
Wirewalker - (Set time: 5:00 PM)
Wirewalker
Wirewalker is the brainchild of vocalist and guitarist Ryan Pressman and drummer Bobby Thayer. What started off as a pastime developed into a passionate calling. Bobby went on to study music and music production at Berklee, while Ryan enrolled in the Music Industries program at CSUN. With technical training as well as an unbridled creative energy, Wirewalker is a carefully-curated rock band with jazz and psychedelic influences.
Niantic - (Set time: 6:00 PM)
Niantic
A city full of transplants, and yet all four members of Niantic are from the Los Angeles area. We grew up right here, in the thick of it, watching people and ideas and flavors of the month come and go.

So we transplanted styles. The goal is impossible -- a sonic architecture, a diversity of borrowing, from all periods and approaches to great music. Different approaches to technical mastery -- or sometimes lack thereof. A relentless focus on arranging, musicianship, and performance.

Every song tells a story, has words and melodies to get lost in. On stage you won't want to look away. On record hopefully it'll be like anything good you put on -- you'll call your friends in from the other room and say "you've gotta hear this".

What does the name mean?? It's an Indian tribe from Connecticut. Ryan found it on a street sign in San Diego and it's a pretty name. You can pronounce it with a hard I if you want to. We're probably concentrating on not sucking and not correcting your language.

But if you do find yourself intrigued, bring your friends, come see us live.
Tone in Georgia - (Set time: 7:00 PM)
Tone in Georgia
Tone in Georgia is a collective of musicians from the Antelope Valley, a sprawling California desert town most known as being a significant contributor to America’s military-industrial complex. Indeed, Captain Beefheart has history here, having attended the same highschool as Frank Zappa. The A.V. is also the home of Edwards Air Force Base, where Chuck Yeager became the first human to break the sound barrier. From these roots emerges Tone In Georgia.

An aspect that makes Tone In Georgia uniquely its own, is that there is no official lead singer, as everyone trades vocals, and more often than not songs employ five-part harmonies. Each member plays more than one instrument, and often the choreography is the most difficult part of the performance. Instruments are even switched mid-song, as in the doo-wop odyssey “Seasons”. Their mission is ambiguous, “We just sort of write whatever we want to perform,” they say; and so they do–listening to a performance is much like listening to a live mix-tape. That being said, it is a little difficult to pin a genre on Tone in Georgia; suffice it to say they are something like psychadelic contemporary folk-jazz-grass with a twinge of mariachi on a broadway bender. From the warm-yet-gloomy keyboard driven “Waltz in 4”, to the trebly country-rock of “Foreign Land”, they cover quite a bit of ground during each performance.
