COO COO BIRDS - (Set time: 11:00 PM)
Discovered living in an former Convent in the Hayes Valley of San Francisco in 2012, the Coo Coo Birds have done much to re-define the meaning of modern holy life since they first started making music in unison. Noted for causing spiritual awakening in the members of their congregation; the band's live performances are considered by many- even by those outside of the occult- to be a religious experience. Abandoning modern conveniences for a more corporal connection with the Divine, the group is rumored to have recorded their prayers using ancient methods; including magnetic tapes, and primitive amplification. Witnesses to the groups public ceremonies have reported seeing band members storing their ceremonial objects in Gentleman's Clubs after use, and have claimed to have heard sounds previously considered extinct on earth at some regional gatherings. Scientist have yet to confirm this, but cite the bands debut LP-"Don't Bring Your Boyfriends"- as evidence of the phenomenon's possibility.
People from Venus - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
People from Venus
PFV has been climbing the ranks in the indie music scene with hits "Kite", "Light War", "Lipstick", and more. In 2010 they were named one of the best undiscovered bands by Spin Magazine.
RedBull licensed "Kite" for one of their commercials in 2012. The band is currently in L.A. writing songs and preparing to tour.
If your not familiar with this group or their music, then let me clue you in. Their sound has been described as gritty UK Punk with a snarl with some added sexual swagger ( Spin Magazine). Their current single "Lipstick" has been heating up the airwaves all through the UK; it's become a favorite amongst glam-rockers, trendsetters, and hipsters

Indeed, much of Toot Toot Yeah! has the feel you get when you're among a crowd of like-minded souls. It's there in the lure of "The Girl From Planet Earth," it's there in the questions raised by "Smitten," and it's there, most adamantly, in the promise of "The Future Is Wild." Call it the sound of those who get it
It helps more that those singles happen to be the catchiest thing since the Bay City Rollers rolled with the Clash.OK, so that never happened. But if it had…

Bella Novela - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
Bella Novela
In the summer of 2007, these three friends worked at a rock 'n' roll summer camp for teens, where they taught the musicians of tomorrow how to play and perform. Sneaking away from the campers at night to play music, Bella Novela was born. Inspired by western soundtracks of the '60s, the operatic arrangements of Queen, the guitar harmonies of Iron Maiden, and the pop choruses and disco rhythms of Abba, the band is best described as a "spaghetti western disco rock opera."

Standing out like a unicorn in an industrial wasteland, the band has made a name for themselves in the eclectic music scene of Long Beach, California, with their flamboyant, passionate, and unforgettable live shows. They've toured the country and appeared on two compilations featuring the best in Long Beach music alongside Mike Watt (Minutemen) and Crystal Antlers. They've shared the stage with Semi-Precious Weapons, The Like, Ida Maria, Gram Rabbit, Ikey Owens (Mars Volta), Matt Embree (RX Bandits), and Girl in a Coma.

Their recently released sophomore album, The Archeress, is a rock opera concept record about the last woman on earth and her battle for survival in a vampire and zombie-swarmed apocalypse. Completely funded by loyal fans in a successful Kickstarter campaign, the trio worked with producer Mario Quintero of Blackbox Studios in San Diego (Transfer) and challenged themselves to write twelve songs that flowed as a cohesive sound and story from the viewpoint of several different characters.

"There's so much emphasis on singles right now that we feel the album has become a lost art," says vocalist Jackie Ojeda. "We wanted to make a true album, down to having hand-painted, watercolor cover art instead of something computer generated."

The Archeress blends all of the best ingredients of sci-fi and horror -- zombies, vampires, ghosts, space -- with cinematic arrangements, dance beats, and pop hooks. The result is an unabashedly melodramatic, epic rock album that drips with soul and emotion, and may be the first flesh-eating monster tale to bring a tear to your eye. It's Dawn of the Dead meets Ziggy Stardust.

"It's a bit grandiose," drummer Jannea McClure adds, "but we figured it would work if we committed whole-heartedly to the theatricality of it all."

Bella Novela is a band on a mission to fill the void for those aching for something new -- an oasis in the desert landscape of disposable, automated Top 40 and lo-fi minimalism. Their songs quench the thirst for fist-in-the-air dance floor anthems, blazing a path with a refreshing new sound, leaving a contrail of sweat and sequins, melted faces and melted hearts.

"LONG BEACH TRIO BELLA NOVELA ARE READY TO BLOW UP: Jackie Ojeda, lead vocalist and ivory-tickler for Long Beach's Bella Novela, definitely calls to mind the adage that dynamite comes in small packages. During the band's performances, she belts out impassioned indie-metal anthems while pounding at her keyboard with staggering conviction. Backed by guitarist Jacob Heath, whose Latin-metal riffs ride with drummer Jannea McClure's galloping rhythms, Bella Novela deliver a distinctive sound teeming with verve. Drawing on such epic performers as Queen and Iron Maiden, this trio are on a mission to make music that's as big as it is explosive, all done with cinematic flair." - OC Weekly
Ahkiyyini - (Set time: 12:00 AM)
Ahkiyyini is a psychedelic rock band from Venice, Los Angeles. The name comes from Inuit folklore as a dancing skeleton who responsible for causing shipwrecks in the ocean. According to Inuit tradition, his dancing made the waves vibrate, influencing the way the boats move. Ahkiyyini played instrumental music, using human arm bones to beat his xylophone of shoulder blades.
