The Happy Hollows www.myspace.com/thehappyhollows
"Sarah's energy on stage was e-x-p-l-o-s-i-v-e. Her dynamic voice and trademark knee socks came packaged with a writhing sense of rock abandon that made the 3 piece feel more like a 12 piece. Sarah used Silverlake Lounge's tiny stage to its fullest in a schizophrenic performance that left the audience awe-struck." - Rock Insider Blog
"...a combination of detached female vocals, esoteric lyrics (see the palindrome-inspired "A Man a Plan a Canal"), and noisy instrumentation...Tackling not-so-happy subjects like Vietnam foxholes and thieving trolls, while also leaving room for ballads dedicated to wet tongues, the Hollows aren't "happy" per se, but, then, quirky trumps cheery any day of the week." - Flavorpill

The Cheat www.myspace.com/thecheatband
"Rock always hits a little sweeter when the mofos playing it look fu*@ing great! But that's certainly not to take away from the fact the Sojourn are great players. Despite the predictable rock posturing of the three boys with guitars, it all came acrosss fresh. The highlight of the set was Sojourn's inspired and attitude laden rendition of Brian Jonestown Massacre's "Not If You Were the Last Dandy on Earth". The corridor like format of the vineyard proved a perfect conductor of Sojourn's raw rock power". Dan Watt - Beat Magazine.

Ride On Rides www.myspace.com/rideonrides
Ride On Rides is a simple band to love - with its mix of 1960's melodies, angular dynamics, and rowdy, free-flowing performances- this combination is assembled around sharp hooks, descending bass lines, Bowie-esque piano arrangements, well arranged harmonies, and boombastic beats.
Raspberry Cocaine www.myspace.com/raspberrycocaine
Raspberry Cocaine is Jamie Tepper, a 32 year old Hollywood High teacher and his trusty laptop. "The music -- damaged, driving electro doused with samples -- is home-recorded and self-released (and has even earned some airplay on Indie 103.1). Working from beside a large screen, Tepper triggers his music plus a slide show of carefully curated images, including album covers, historical photos and pop culture ephemera. In front of the screen, actress/performance artist Princess Pop (a.k.a. Audrey Malone, pictured) mimes, lip-syncs and dances accordingly" (Kevin Bronson). Jamie Tepper describes his musical project as, "a multimedia spectacle."
