  • The Dustbowl Revival

    The Dustbowl Revival

    The Dustbowl Revival is a Venice, California-based collective that merges old school bluegrass, gospel, pre-war blues and the hot swing of New Orleans to form a spicy roots cocktail. Known for their roaring live sets, Dustbowl bravely brings together many styles of traditional American music. Some call it string band-brass band mash up. Maybe it's called Swing grass or good old Americana. Imagine Old Crow Medicine Show teaming up with Louis Armstrong’s Hot Fives and Sevens, or Bob Dylan and The Band jamming with Benny Goodman and his orchestra in 1938. It’s infectious, joyous music - a youthful take on time-worn American traditions.
     
    Named "Best Live Band in LA" by The LA Weekly, each Dustbowl performance promises to be a white-knuckle ride through the history of American folk music that rarely stays just on the stage. Call it the new old-timey dance party sound made fresh by some of the best soloists in the business. Most of the gang is classically trained though you might not know it when some of the funk breaks out.
     
    After placing several songs on ABC and Fox and having tunes featured in independent films like "Made In China" (winner of SXSW) winning Americana song of the year from the Independent Music Awards (Tom Waits judging), playing festivals like Outside Lands and opening for bands like Lake Street Dive, Rebirth Brass Band, Preservation Hall Jazz Band and Trombone Shorty, the band began barnstorming more extensively across the USA. Festivals on tap in 2015 include Floydfest (VA), Clearwater Hudson Revival (NY), The Winnipeg Folk Festival, Naked Song Fest (Netherlands) and Bergenfest (Norway) where they will join Tori Amos, First Aid Kit and Jackson Browne. 
     
    Founder Z. Lupetin came west from Chicago in 2007 and placed a humble Craigslist ad to get the circus started. The group has grown steadily from a small string band playing up and down the west coast, into a traveling mini orchestra featuring instrumentation that often includes fiddle, mandolin, trombone, clarinet, trumpet, ukelele, drums, tuba, organ, a bass made from a canoe oar, harmonica and plenty of washboard and kazoo for good luck. They have settled into an eight piece touring machine - rattling ceilings and sometimes bringing their grinning sound into the street. 
     
    With their latest offerings Holy Ghost Station and Carry Me Home getting solid play on NPR and rising on the Americana charts, the band is slated for a big 2015. A small European tour is in the works. They have recorded their first live album at San Francisco's Great American Music Hall and LA's famed Troubadour and will be releasing it in June. In the meantime they will tour the Pacific Northwest, The Midwest and East coast.

  • The Record Company

    The Record Company

    The Record Company is a rock/blues/roots trio based in  Los Angeles.  Steeped in the classic sounds of Muddy Waters and John Lee Hooker along with the raw rock and roll of The Stooges and The Yardbirds, The Record Company have burst onto the scene in a very short time.

    Their live show has quickly become acclaimed throughout North America and has drawn capacity audiences from Los Angeles to Montreal.  With their new EP Superdead, the band has been receiving strong airplay at AAA and college radio throughout the United States and Canada and have been featured on L.A. Weekly, Time Out L.A. and XPN/The Key amongst others.

    While never trying to simply emulate the great masters, the band have found  their own fresh take on the music and can best be described as a group giving a 21st century nod to a timeless art form.

  • Alto

    Alto

    Alto is an indie-folk band comprised of three UCLA music school undergrads: Jessica Jones (bass), Veronica Rogers (viola), Nicolette Yarbrough (violin). Their self-titled debut EP combines the girl's classical instruments, vocal harmonies inspired by the Boswell Sisters and an ear for catchy pop hooks, creating a singular new sound.  Alto recently won the top honors at UCLA's prestigious talent contest, Spring Sing, and the release of the EP and its single "Vocable" has begun to generate buzz across independent music blogs.
