Puro Instinct - (Set time: 10:30 PM)
Puro Instinct
Los Angeles teens Puro Instinct (formerly called Pearl Harbor). Piper, Sky, and Cody create dreamy, ethereal melodies not dissimilar to heavies of the past few decades (Cocteau Twins, Lush), but with the doomed worldview of today’s California, fallin’ into the sea, creeping ever so slightly in the background.Pulling together strands of light, synthetic pop with the unmistakable damage of proximity to Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti.
John Maus - (Set time: 9:30 PM)
John Maus (born February 23, 1980) is an American composer and political philosophy and theory instructor at the University of Hawaiiʻi at Mānoa.

Born and raised in the small town of Austin, Minnesota, his first experiments with music were at an early age—in his band the Janitors and by playing guitar for his church. In the early noughties he performed with Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti, and more recently has released some rather excellent self-produced albums of his own: “Songs” (2006), and “Love is Real” (2007).
Geneva Jacuzzi - (Set time: 8:30 PM)
Geneva Jacuzzi
Geneva Garvin's wry wit has the ability to turn the mundane into the comedically dark, and to turn stock drum patterns into backdrops of ornate goth pop. Borne from LA's Echo Park scene, her beguiling music and art aesthetic will lure you in with its catchiness and captivate you with its sinister complexity.
Amazing Amy with Tité Glità - (Set time: 7:30 PM)
