Ugly Sweaters
Ugly Sweaters
Raised in Zimbabwe, schooled in Australia and based in Los Angeles, Ugly Sweaters is the musical melding of couple Mandla and Claire Daley and power house rhythm section Alex Pfender and Ian Meltzer. The quartet put on a raucous set mixing rock N roll foundations with flares of punk and pop. Bring your dancing shoes!
POLARTROPICA makes crystal-cool, dreamy, orchestral electro-synth pop that will tickle your ears and imagination. Their Debut EP 'Astrodreams' was released March 2016 on Lolipop Records. Intertwined within the "swirly burst of dreamy reverie" (-Free Bike Valet) are themes of isolation, injustice, heartbreak, and corruption - all set under the glittery futuristic synths and classical string arrangements. Polartropica was selected as Les Femmes Underground International Film Festival's official music for 2016, with debut music video 'Light Up the Sky' as an official selection for the festival. The band also showcased for Lolipop Record at the Echo Park Rising Music Festival this year.

Combining her love for classical, pop and indie rock music, Ihui Cherise Wu (past keyboardist for Sanglorians, Simone White, Robotanists, and currently Ghostel) holed up in her tiny cottage in Highland Park and wrote the songs together with fellow music lover and friend Roman Salas. The songs were recorded with Silverlake-based producer C.M. Rodriguez over one of the hottest summers in California. With the help of many talented musicians, including Morgan Paros on violin, Joe Santa Maria on saxophone and Lauren Elizabeth Baba on viola/violin, the vision for 'Astrodreams' EP came to life. Come away to a distant land where macarons grow on trees, fuzzy baby flamingos nap in the warm sunshine and glitter clouds line the sky!

"The synths swirl around Ihui's clean and clear vocals, creating an other-worldly synth-pop mixture of classical music and action movie soundtracks, with the melodrama of Rachmaninoff or James Bond, and as provocative as Beethoven or Quentin Tarantino." - Gary Fukushima, LA Weekly
Madame Headdress
Madame Headdress was formed from the remains of the Los Angeles-based, 12-piece folk/dance ensemble Cobra Lilies, lead by longtime husband-and-wife collaborators Eli and Mary Chartkoff (The Monolators, Dawn of Sequins, Dark Ocelot, Ema and the Ghosts, Three Fruit Fantasy, etc.) The Chartkoffs are joined by fellow ex-Lilies Arlene Ziordia (flute) and Alissa Ayoub (tap dancing), along with vocalist Ellia Glassing, who they met via playing in their children's elementary school parent band. They released "Lipstick," their first LP, on Mental Illness Records in July of 2017.
Los Kinkos
A Los Angeles based Kinks Kover band comprised of members of various bands like dios, Shirley Rolls, Creation Factory and more!
