Wyatt & Fletcher
-from, Orange, CA
-The Garden is a constantly evolving, conceptual punk band based in Orange County, California. Established in in 2011 by twin brothers Wyatt and Fletcher Shears, the band consistently defies categorization and continues to break ground in their self inflicted ‘Vada Vada’ genre*. They are the auditory invaders of the new world; borderless, informed and decentralized, slick sound released from constraint and old ideologies.
*Vada Vada: An idea that represents pure creative expression, that disregards all previously made genres and ideals.-Wyatt Shears 2015

Michael Perez – Bass
Luke Perine – Drums, Synth
Jay Rogers – Guitar, Keys
-from Whittier, CA
-Plague Vendor emerged from a practice space in Whittier, CA in 2009, centered on a predilection for dark tones and instinctual playing. The four people who created it were friends before its birth, connected by their hometown, and found its thematic core with a certain ease. The first songs were written around the moniker itself, which recalled narrative elements from a Mexican folk tale the musicians had read and exemplified the power two words can create when melded together. The first shows were raucous and treacherous, infused with raw vigor and a sense of shock value. It was clear from the outset that Plague Vendor was peddling something formidable.
The band was invited to perform around Southern California early on. The musicians opened for Little Dragon and Passion Pit and played Chain Reaction, The Glass House and Fox Theater. They played backyard parties and big clubs and performed at festivals like Epicenter and Rockin’ Roots Fest. They explored their punk rock aesthetic opening for Iggy Pop, Jello Biafra and Social Distortion. At the heart of all the shows was a real energy and spirit, a snarling, frenetic performance led by Brandon’s yelping howl.
Kim The Created
Kim House + The Created
-from Echo Park, LA
-Kim and The Created might be the most dynamic of all the bands that have come from the land of Burger/Lolipop Records, and certainly they’re a treat to behold—a radioactive but delicious piece of candy. The music grumbles like a sci-fi horror show and Kim House is the pretty monster, clad in a cat suit and thrashing around on a stage that can’t contain her mighty force. Like that classic tale of a woman grown to 80 feet tall who just can’t help trampling power lines and crushing buildings in her search for love and understanding, Kim comes from a place of vulnerability. She lets it all out on stage and it’s impossible to look away.' -LA RECORD
