The Bomb
The Bomb
Not one to shy from the volume knob, Rachel Fannan's latest explosion
the Bomb is an angsty guitar driven kiss blown to the likes of Dinosaur Junior, Black Sabbath, Heart and ACDC. Powerful and precise, face melting vocals push head banging riffs to the next level, a captivating blend of performance and raw energy you have to hear to believe. Best known for her work in Only You and psych outfit Sleepy Sun, the Bomb provides the perfect opportunity to catch Fannan at her most rock. Joined by Dash Hutton on drums and Quincy Larsen on bass, the Bomb is pleased to announce it will be releasing its debut EP ‘Everybody’s Famous’ December 21st 2016.
Stars At Night
Stars At Night
Since their formation in 2008 East LA's hard-experimental Rock trio Stars at Night have become a tour de force of sound and style in LA's underground scene. With influences that range from Pink Floyd to Bikini Kill to Madonna, this bands sound is an amalgamation of raw force and elegant artistry.

Lead singer and keyboardist Irene Quiles is anything but reserved when performing. Her powerful voice and disarming lyrics can deliver you to a state of euphoria or push you into frenzied excitement. No less is the seemingly inexhaustible energy of drummer Joana Rubio. Creating the ground shaking heartbeat of each song, Joana pumps each song to life with shear power, talent, and presence. Rounding out these three bright stars is guitarist Seleste Diaz. Behind the subdued stage presence is the sharpness and vision of a brilliant musician who seems to weave together hair-raising, hip-gyrating riffs and melodies as if from the ether. It is the authentic [visual and auditory] beauty of Stars At Night that will propel them to stellar heights.

Stars At Night's trajectory has caught the attention of both underground and popular music groups. Note worthy groups such as Good Charlotte, The Ataris, The Memorials, Alison Wolfe of Bratmobile, Vampiro of Jaguares, and most recently Kitten have all invited Stars At Night to perform as part of their shows' opening line-up. Stars At Night'slive performances captivate audiences and make believers out of skeptics. They are a trinity of awesome, jagged-edged rock.

Edith Crash
Edith Crash
Edith Crash belongs to no one. In fact, her music—sung in French, Spanish, and English—transcends the international origins of this one-woman band by blending them all into one cohesive project. Inspired by dark experimentalism of vastly different artists such as Portishead, Jacques Brel, and PJ Harvey, Crash’s dynamic mix of folk and grunge is as much of a cross-cultural creation as the singer herself. Born in France, raised in Spain, and based now in Los Angeles, Crash’s songs defy genre by pulling bits and pieces from clamoring post-punk, bluesy folk, and vigorous Spanish guitar.

Edith Crash is on the rise and people are noticing. She was recently included one NPR’s list of favorite SXSW discoveries, and described as “bluesy, folky music that is all very dark and strange, complimented by her sultry voice.” Indeed, Crash’s latest and most haunting record ‘Partir’ combines her impassioned, French singing with thunderingly loud guitar playing dedicated to her late mother. Though self-released, this stormy LP was produced by Alain Johannes (who has worked on records with Queens Of The Stone Age, PJ Harvey, and Mark Lanegan). Crash recorded its entirety live as a one woman set on the studios 11AD in LA.

Edith Crash, both in sound and style, is reminiscent of young Françoise Hardy deep in a Tom Waits obsession. That said, it’s no wonder both her music and her likeness have appeared in feature films like the Eli Roth horror film “Knock Knock.” The uniquely cinematic quality to her music comes in full-bodied melodies, dramatic vocal delivery, and a penchant for Western folk drama.
