ABRAHAM LINCOLN - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
ABRAHAM LINCOLN
Abraham Lincoln is a band that distinguishes itself by capturing the subtle sounds of rustic Los Angeles in the local indie rock scene. Rather than framing itself by a concrete genre or scene, the band captures a genuine whimsy and sincerity rarely associated with the city’s character. Although they have only played as Abraham Lincoln since 2013, the group came together as a new configuration of musicians and artists that had been collaborating for almost a decade as Familiar Haunts and Land of Ill Earthquakes. The combination of sounds is an interwoven musical quilt created by the fabric of Jose E. Gonzalez’s (vocals, rhythm guitar) thoughtful songwriting and strung together through a skillful beat and bass combination generated by Eric Pietsch (drums) and Art Avila (bass guitar). The band’s signature sound is wrapped by the haunting melodies of Skippy Phoolserm’s guitar and complemented with the vulnerable sweetness of her background vocals. Together, they strive to provide audiences with a musical experience devoid of pretense that is both grounded and fresh.

The Absurd
The Absurd was founded in Los Angeles, 2015, by Detroit troubadours Ben Foerg and Josh Loney under the belief that the most sure-fire way to financial success is through the currently booming music industry.

Under the name Ben Foerg & The Absurd, the duo came to Los Angeles in search of success and prosperity, instead finding poverty, loneliness and desolation. Just when all seemed bleak, a light at the end of the tunnel poked through and from it emerged disillusioned ex-Mormon drummer Colin Jensen. It was from this brew of contrarian personalities that The Absurd was born.

Though they steadfastly believe that genre distinctions are a false creation of the white male patriarchy, critics have described The Absurd as a psychedelic, heavy and melodic rock band that "makes you want to drop something heavy." Fans have described the band by saying "imagine that Pearl Jam and Bob Dylan had a millennial lovechild."

When asked how they would describe themselves, The Absurd was unavailable for comment.

Since their inception in late 2015 and the release of "The Trigger Happy EP" earlier this year, The Absurd have quickly risen from playing the darkest corners of the city's bar scene to some of the premier venues in Los Angeles and beyond. With an undying love of music, an unwavering skepticism of nearly everything and an unparalleled (and possibly unhealthy) ambition, The Absurd is rapidly becoming an LA staple worth raising a glass to.
