Superhumanoids - (Set time: 10:30 PM)
Superhumanoids
On the heels of a series of much-adored singles, EPs, and video sessions, transcendent pop band Superhumanoids returns with its debut full-length, Exhibitionists. On the album the Los Angeles three-piece shows off a sound that’s ambitious and awesomely precise. Brilliant harmonies and arrangements abound, as the group showcases its trademark blend of diverse instrumentation and driving electronics. It is otherworldly pop at its finest.

Sarah Chernoff, Cameron Parkins, and Max St. John prize meticulousness—every sound you hear on these recordings is the result of deliberate, nearly obsessive dedication to their craft. Recorded and produced by the band itself, the album was mixed by Ariel Rechtshaid (Charli XCX, Blood Orange, Major Lazer, Active Child) and Doug Boehm (GIRLS, Guided By Voices).

Superhmanoids’ studio ethic is matched by its devotion to dynamic and inspiring live performance. The band has gained a steadfast fan-base across the U.S. and Europe on tours with Local Natives, Active Child, Balam Acab, Cold War Kids, Class Actress, Cults, and Wild Beasts. The group will hit the road again soon to share their latest creation with old fans and new friends.
We Barbarians - (Set time: 9:30 PM)
We Barbarians
Vacillating between dark and light with rhythm-heavy foundations, We Barbarians sucker most into thinking the collaboration is anything but a three piece. David Quon (singer/guitarist), Derek VanHeule (bass/vocals) and Nathan Warkentin (drums/vocals) formed in Long Beach, CA in 2007 from the throes of previous bands. Since their inception and the release of their debut EP, 2008’s In The Doldrums, the band has toured with Local Natives, Tokyo Police Club, Maps and Atlases, Ra Ra Riot, Cold War Kids, The Morning Benders and Les Savy Fav.
