The Satellite & KROQ Locals Only Present
SLEEPLUST is the brain child of twin brothers Michael and Joseph Pepe and vocalist Amber Ruthe after a chance encounter on Craigslist. Moody electronics, spacious guitars, and modern pop rhythms all make up the ground work of the band. Since releasing their music they've had features in Billboard Magazine and Huffington Post along with TV placements on channels such as MTV, VH1, and E, along with an accumulation of over a million plays of their last two EPs on digital platforms. It's honest music that they hope will find a way into your heart.
Cuffed Up is a Post-Sad-Punk Quartet from Los Angeles. The band started as a curious jam between Ralph Torrefranca, Sapphire Jewell, Joe Liptock and Vic Ordonez in mid 2018 inspired by the current UK Punk explosion with bands like IDLES, Shame and Fontaines D.C. as well as 90s influences like Sunny Day Real Estate and American Football. By the end of 2018 the band came out with a handful of songs and Cuffed Up was born.
Los Angeles born-and-raised singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Lauren Rocket has been making music and playing shows almost as long as she's been alive. Having cut her teeth as a teen in the seminal L.A. power pop band Rocket, she's also sprinkled her magic dust around the globe with artists including The Child, Junkie XL, and Night Terrors of 1927. Lauren's new solo project aptly titled "Lauren Rocket", is a cinematic, acid washed, passionate and sometimes melancholic ode to life, solitude, adventure, wild freedom and authenticity. Buy the ticket, take the ride.
