Niantic - (Set time: 10:00 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.
The Absurd - (Set time: 11:00 PM)
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.
