Voodoo Boogaloo - (Set time: 7:00 PM)
Voodoo Boogaloo
"Voodoo Boogaloo is a lush aggregate of sweeping sonic melodies, interviewed and found-sound vocal drops, lyric flows, as well as rising and falling bass pads all recalling the darker and sometimes more sinister moments of Portishead’s Dummy. Cardona’s singing serves as a strong foundation for both the rhythmic and leading melodic progressions making a listener “feel” Cardona’s singing and Woodyard’s beats interwoven like the satisfying “click” of a lock and key. Cardona’s rich singing lends an air of dreamy and magical mystery in much the same way as the better cuts from Lana Del Ray while Woodyard’s wild and animated vocal flow drive their recordings in tasteful proportions. This is “from the heart” music and it is at times strange, wild, wonderful and excessive. We as listeners, and our subjective cups, runneth over.” - The Critical Asshole
Jerkagram - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
Jerkagram
Originally from New York and now based out of Los Angeles, Jerkagram is a fraternal twin duo making music that unfurls a chaotic psychedelic whirlwind at one time while a minimalist ambient wash at another. The duo's creative rhythm, layered guitar textures, and unhinged drum patterns allow for an organic, hypnotic, and epic experience. The raucous twosome is influenced by a very wide array of musical styles and philosophies, from the buoyancy and heavy punk sensibilities of The Melvins to the orchestral post-rock of Explosions in the Sky as well as the loose and maniacal free jazz of Sun Ra. Live, they have infectious, boundless energy with a penchant for improvisation, making no two shows the same.

Drums + Vocals / Brent Gaines
Guitar Loops + Vocals / Derek Gaines
Mildred - (Set time: 6:00 PM)
Mildred
Mildred was born on October 24th, 2017. Mildred is an artifact. Mildred is an actual human woman who lives in Los Angeles and occasionally sings in operas. Sometimes Mildred pretends she is an opera. Sometimes Mildred writes music on purpose and sometimes Mildred writes music by accident. Before Mildred became Mildred, she was the lead singer, keyboardist, and core songwriter for a progressive rock band called Blackberry Tongues. Mildred exists on the internet and in places that aren't the internet, like the ocean. Mildred's eyes leak out like yolks. Mildred is a cloak that wears her pain. One time Mildred almost fell off the side of a mountain but someone saved her. Mildred wants you to think she is beautiful. Mildred wants you to find her repulsive. Mildred doesn't care what you think. Sometimes Mildred wonders if her spirit animal is a cockroach. Mildred doesn't have a family but she has an army. Mildred will crawl into the earth inside you and cry through you.
