Brought together by the graces of Craigslist, NEW EViL began touring local music venues as feverishly as they could with the help of Play Like a Girl, who recognized the band for their high energy live performance, engaging theatrics with the crowd, and genuinely haunting rock songs. After numerous shows in Los Angeles, the audience's general reaction was summed up into one statement: "I've never seen anything like this before". The band has opened for notable female fronted bands such as Le Butcherettes, and Barb Wire Dolls.

In the spring of 2016 they received an official Certificate of Recognition by the city of Los Angeles. Their animated performance inspired Cartoon Network’s Power Puff Girls artist Benjamin P Carow, whose drawing of the band has become a viral success.
The band launched a successful crowdfunding campaign raising thousands of dollars to record their first studio album ‘A Witch Shall be Born’. The album was recorded by John Would (Fiona Apple, HBO’s True Blood) at Stanley Recordings in Echo Park, and is due for release in 2017.
Rebel and a Basketcase
Zach and Evan met while performing in a John Hughes Cabaret with the company 'For the Record' The actors would re-enact scenes from the director's most famous films while singing songs used in the soundtracks. Evan played the role of 'Basketcase' and Zach played the role of 'Rebel' both in reference to 'The breakfast club' characters originated by Ally Sheedy and Judd Nelson. The show they were performing in together was about to close. They didn't want to stop pretending to be in John Hughes movies together…. So they started a band.
Sugar Fly
Sugar Fly
Sugar Fly is a rock n' soul band with the charm of scuffed wooden bars, whiskey soaked cigars and bootleg rye. Formed in late 2014, Sugar Fly blends the best qualities of classic rock, West Coast funk and Motown soul and injects those familiar sounds with an infusion of modern heavy rock.

Sugar Fly was conceived by Collyn McCoy (bass) and Noah Lifschey (drums), after performing together on Joseph Gordon-Levitt's TV show, HitRecord. Fueled by a steady diet of thrift store vinyl, vintage tube amps and Kentucky bourbon, the two sequestered themselves to Noah's studio and birthed the nascent sound that had been swimming in their heads. All that was missing was a singer. But not just any singer would do. They needed a vocalist with the power of Aretha, the passion of Etta, and the prodigious balls of Bon Scott. And that's when by some manner of miracle (i.e. the internet), Tia Simone (who had just finished a west coast tour at the Hollywood Bowl) dropped from the Cloud. Together these three filled their bubblin' cauldron with equal parts Stax and Black Sabbath, a dash of Tina Turner and a pinch of Led Zeppelin, to summon the sounds of Sugar Fly from the ether.

Sugar Fly's live band is composed of Tia Simone (lead vocals), Noah Lifschey (drums), Collyn McCoy (bass), Dre DiMura (guitar) and Esteban Chavez (Hammond organ/analog synths).

This show at El Cid is the record release show for their debut EP!
Gigi Gash
GiGi GASH is a Los Angeles based one woman show, armed with only a backing track and captivating vocals. If Lana Del Rey, David Lynch and Marc Bolan made a baby while watching The Rocky Horror Picture Show on Planet Z, the result would be GiGi GASH and her oddly beautiful stage performance.
