Atomic Ape - (Set time: 11:00 PM)
Atomic Ape
Atomic Ape catapults your ears into an unpredictable universe of swirling musical mayhem, creating thrilling cinematic adventures and psychedelic cartoons in your mind's eye. Led by composer/multi-instrumentalist, Jason Schimmel (Estradasphere, Secret Chiefs 3), Atomic Ape brings progressive rock, balkan, klezmer, jazz, surf rock and more into a smorgasbord of heavily orchestrated, odd-metered, fast-paced compositions with wild improvisations and complex arrangements. Their live sound comes equipped with a mini-arsenal of instrumentalists including: guitar, bouzouki, accordion, sax, trumpet, bass, and drums. Their debut album, Swarm, an uber-produced tour-de-force, was recently released worldwide on Mimicry Records in early 2014.

"...engaging guitar melodies delivered with the heft of prog rock–and group improvs that succeed whether they're gentle or vicious..." – JazzTimes

"...something in between John Zorn's raucous free-jazz and the romantic stylings of Black Sabbath." – L.A. Weekly

"...rock listeners will follow the dots which extend back to Black Sabbath and up to Joe Satriani." -Audiophile Audition

Duk - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Duk (formerly Deux Sons) is a seven piece, all-instrumental band based in Los Angeles who play a primal brew of smart pre-rock-n-roll. Their sound blends the interweaving polyphonies of balkan folk music, the sweet rolling soul of a dixieland band in full swing, and a certain punk snap that is all their own. This band of twenty-somethings has coined the genre "Gypsy Jazz" for their original music, as this motley instrumental crew is able to fully captivate its audiences with an emotional live energy.

Duk is Max Whipple on accordion, Spencer Ludwig on trumpet, Kane Ritchotte on drums, Cary Singer on electric guitar, Ari Balouzian on viola, Eugene Fabiero on tuba, and Colin Krupka on sax. Their debut EP, recorded and produced by Dash Lefrancis and Deux Sons in Silverlake, California, is scheduled to be released in August 2013. It will feature six original compositions, ranging from gypsy-esque party tunes to dark waltzes and cartoony, Raymond Scott inspired journeys. All six songs were composed by Max Whipple.
