The Absurd - (Set time: 11:00 PM)
The Absurd
The Absurd is a true power trio, firing thunderous riffs, deep grooves and earworm hooks at audiences with equal capacity. One publication has called them "Queens of the Stone Age meets Jeff Buckley" (throw in some Radiohead, Pearl Jam & Jack White and you're halfway there) while another has stated that The Absurd "makes me want to drop something heavy".

In the past year The Absurd has ascended from nothingness into being, and is now known around Los Angeles for their electrifying live shows, constant songwriting output and relentless gigging. November 2016 saw the release of their first in-studio effort, "The Motherless Child EP," which was reviewed by publications by Buzzbands LA. In January of this year they completed their first LA residency complete with reviews from publications like Music Connection Magazine.

Since then they have become staples of the east LA/Hollywood scene at venues like Harvard & Stone, The Viper Room, Silverlake Lounge, The Satellite and The Lost Knight where they performed one of two performances at LA's Echo Park Rising festival, this past august.

The Absurd is presently in studio working on their latest release, all the while storming the city with their unique and explosive live shows.
Stars at Night
Stars at Night
Since their formation in 2010 East LA's very own sensational quartet of fierce female Angelina's Stars At Night who make a dirty, energetic, and powerful rock, spiced with punk, psychedelia, and plenty of attitude, have become a tour de force of sound a.nd style in LA's underground scene. With influences that range from Black Sabbath to Yeah Yeah Yeahs, this bands sound is an amalgamation of raw force and elegant artistry.
Niantic
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.
Hollow Fortyfives
Hollow Fortyfives
Stemming from roots of sixties rock 'n' roll, garage rock and a DIY punk mentality, Hollow Fortyfives formed in the summer of 2013. Noted for their mod and psychedelic song sensibility, the songs consist of driving drums, booming bass, and swirling guitars all held together by three part harmonies. Their first recordings, were released as a self-titled cassette on Wiener Records and local Long Beach label Leg Records.

Since this release, the band followed up with an EP titled, Summertime Psychosis. Praised by Treblezine and Austin Town Hall for it's "Cali Shimmer garage rock and power pop".

Along with a string of singles, web show appearances, and interviews, Hollow Fortyfives are continuing to work on new music and releases. Their newest effort a full length album titled "Strange Times" takes them out of their home recording environment and into a professional studio. This allowed the band more time focus on the creative side of making a record. The result being a more polished album from start to finish both musically and lyrically. "Return Ticket" the first single from the album, tells a story of wanting to see the world beyond one's hometown. Guitars echo and harmonies ring to guide the listener on that trip. Strange Times is available now courtesy of Volsa Entertainment / Red I Records.
