Midnight Opera
Midnight Opera is the glam rock band of four friends from Dallas, TX. Mixing ominous art pop with opulent set design and deranged alter egos, their live show makes you feel like you could go out and invent a new color, or wear a leotard to work.
D I A M O N D S was founded in the summer of 2015 by singer, songwriter, and stage performer Joseph Gárate. The band’s brand of passionate, existential pop draws comparisons to the likes of The Smiths and The Cure as well as the layered psychosis of genre-benders like Radiohead and NIN. Gárate’s paranoid meditations on violence, drug abuse, and the pangs of true love are steeped in an idiosyncratic writing style inspired partially by the nauseous vanilla of a formative youth spent (like his bandmates) in the faceless valleys of suburban Los Angeles - worlds away from the glamour and promise of nearby Hollywood. The band's unrelenting commitment to song craft as well as their dynamic and vulnerable performance style has been admired by their peers and fans alike. After a debut performance at 2015’s Echo Park Rising, Gárate secured an enviable rhythm section comprised of Anders La Source and Andrew Narvaez and rounded out the lineup with the gifted Dominick Costabile on guitar. By the end of the year the quartet had caught the attention of producer, engineer, and Cautionary Tail Records founder Norm Block. After numerous performances throughout their home city in 2016 (including an opening spot for Jennylee and an appearance at Make Music Pasadena) D I A M O N D S recorded a single with Block at his Happy Ending Studios in the Spring. Cautionary Tail released the single “My White Diamond” late last year. The video for "My White Diamond" was directed by Tommy Souza and debuted in March. A new release from the band is coming very shortly.
Fellow Bohemian
Fellow Bohemian
Taking rhythm and groove to the outlier regions of dream pop, Fellow Bohemian's music combines sonic landscapes and interwoven guitar leads with a driving backbeat. These elements can clearly be heard in the LA group's most recent releases, "Surface Trick" and "Ceremony."

Fellow Bohemian can be seen throughout Southern California, having played venues like The Echo, House Of Blues, Bootleg Theater, and The Observatory. They've opened for acts such as Superhumanoids, James Supercave, Bad Suns, and Night Terrors of 1927. Fellow Bohemian is currently working on new material to be released in late-2016.
