Former Faces
Ryan Parmenter’s latest project, Former Faces, is a study in dreams and memories crossing paths. The Silverlake-based multi-instrumentalist and vocalist creates fluid cerebral sounds reminiscent of Tame Impala, The War On Drugs, Jim James, and Deerhunter, to name a few.

After putting the finishing touches on his self-written and self-produced work, Parmenter has enlisted the help of David Lee (guitar), Brian Blake (bass), and Abraham Kim (drums) to shape his live act, which aims to bring a complete audiovisual performance to the stage. Organically exploring the relationship between reality and the subconscious, it’s a collection of sonic dreamscapes that shrink and blur the line between the two.

From airy indie-style tracks to songs born from more psychedelic roots, the Former Faces sound takes inspiration from a wide range of genres that have informed Parmenter’s years of songwriting experience. Inventive, colorful, and immersive, Former Faces is an authentically multidimensional journey through music.
Dysplay is a duo from Los Angeles, CA. Shortly before departing Awolnation, producer/multi-instrumentalist Devin Hoffman teamed up with producer/vocalist Eric Scullin to make dark pop music. While writing and producing with international artists they’ve developed their own style as performers themselves. The Dysplay live show features the energetic interaction of a full band interpreting their dynamic productions.
