Unscene Fest
Unscene Fest
Unscene Fest is an attempt to both cultivate and spotlight a new type of music and art scene within Los Angeles. A scene that not only supports great music and art but openly welcomes experimentation, intellectualism and activism.

In recent years, the DIY music and art community in Los Angeles has coalesced and flourished into a uniquely identifiable scene with global reach. Yet, as with many scenes, it has also organized itself according to a hierarchy of cool that excludes talented people who don’t necessarily fit the community’s aesthetic, leaving bands and artists without similar associations and musical touchstones out in the cold when it comes to playing shows and having their art promoted through the usual channels.

With that in mind, we’ve consciously decided to reach out to musicians, artists, organizations, vendors and sponsors outside of the typical “scene” in hopes to shine a light on the world on the fringe and open the door to a more inclusive underground music community.

Illuminati Hotties
Illuminati Hotties
Local Los Angeles tenderpunk pioneers, illuminati hotties, is the creative outlet of Sarah Tudzin - a producer, engineer, and burrito aficionado hailing from the sprawl of Los Angeles. Armed with bright white shortveralls and a rotating line-up of Sarah’s bffs, illuminati hotties has been lighting up stages across SoCal since Fall 2016 with playfully interweaving guitar lines, relentless rhythmic momentum, and strikingly self-aware vocals. At first listen, illuminati hotties is a sun-drenched, irreverent volley with the onset of adulthood, but as the listener dives deeper, they will find an earnest consideration of musical phrasing and deliberately crafted wordplay regarding the complexity of love, loss, and skateboarding. illuminati hotties is looking forward to the release of their debut LP in early 2018.

DOWN TO FUN & CAN'T SLOW DOWN
Justus Proffit
Justus Proffit
Justus Proffit toys with electronic sounds, dreamy melodies and harmonies to create the sonic background for his lyrically heavy album, ‘Magic’. His subject matter focuses on the human condition; with songs often referencing depression, self-knowledge, and overcoming. Some ’90s punk qualities of the album are found in the anthemic conclusions to which some songs (Stay, Lost) arrive. But even while the guitar and drums sound dissonant, Proffit’s vocal melodies remain dreamy, catchy and thoughtful. Justus Proffit’s music is inventively sentimental and unafraid; driven by personal struggles and contemplation, his songs reassure himself of his own motives. Justus Proffit is hitting the west coast with his band mid september through october.
Cartalk
Cartalk
cartalk is the evercaring, tenderpunk project from Los Angeles native musician Chelsea Moore. The band cultivates vulnerable moments with alt-country feels and quiet murmurs of candor. Members include Dean Kiner and CT Wilkes who always bring their A-game.
Bloomers
Alternative Fuzz Rock from Loveland, Colorado
