  • As one half of electronic music pioneers/producers Thievery Corporation, Rob Garza has been at the forefront of music and has traveled the globe performing, remixing, djing, recording, and composing. Since Garza's recent move to San Francisco, he has begun a re-exploration of his love for electronic music and beats focusing on Nu-Disco and Deep House, while keeping very groove-oriented and international based rhythms.
  • Glasser – aka Cameron Mesirow – will release her sophomore album, Interiors, on October 8th on True Panther Sounds. The follow up to 2010's critically acclaimed debut Ring, Interiors, featuring the single "Shape," is a much more considered, confident, and sharply personal album than its predecessor.
  • Dave Sitek is best known as a member of the groundbreaking band TV on the Radio. As a Producer and Remixer, Sitek has collaborated with artists such as Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Santigold, Kelis, Nine Inch Nails, Usher, My Morning Jacket, and Florence + The Machine. This is a rare opportunity to catch Dave Sitek perform a DJ set and not to be missed!
  • Dale Earnhardt Jr Jr was an immediate hit on KCRW's airwaves with their 2010 EP and they've continue to release incredible indie pop, borrowing as much from the Beach Boys as the Geto Boys. The Detroit-area natives Joshua Epstein and Daniel Zott will take to the turntables and play a mix of Nu-disco and House music.
  • Har Mar Superstar (aka Sean Tillmann) is known for his no holds barred live performances. He's a fearless performer who owns the stage with glee, singing a perfect mixture of party-starting anthems and R&B-tinged tracks from his latest album "Bye Bye 17".
  • Inspired by reggae, sound system culture and a myriad of Jamaican musical styles, old and new, The Lions always deliver positive vibes and high-energy performances. The 12-piece collective includes some of LA's elite reggae and soul forerunners and they will anchor the Haunted Dancehall at the Park Plaza.
  • Tom Chasteen is the founder of LA's popular reggae residency The Dub Club, which draws huge crowds each week to check out the best artists from Jamaica performing alongside the venerable Dub Club DJs. Tom will bring that vibrant spirit and spin the best in classic reggae, and dub to keep the Haunted Dancehall jumping.
  • Grizfolk's sound layers glittering synth harmonies atop barn-burner rock hooks, mixing America's country music heritage with that of an electro-pop persuasion. The result is an undeniably catchy collection of pop songs that sound both futurist and revivalist at the same time. The band of Swedish and American musicians in now based in LA and is one of the most promising bands on our radar!
also featuring
  • The Angel City All-Star Brass Band is the newest creation from Todd Simon, a respected horn player and bandleader who has toured and recorded with Antibalas, Quadron, Rhye, and his collective The Decoders, among others. Todd has gathered some on LA's best musicians to pay homage to the roots of cumbia, afrobeat, reggae, soul and ethio-jazz, with some Halloween treats thrown in.
  • A roaring & rebellious dance spectacle, Harlow Gold's vintage burlesque revue, Blind Tiger, licks the envelope on the womens' spirit of the 1920's.
  • Interactive experiences by Lucent Dossier's vaudeville circus troupe.
  • The Bella-Donnas are a neo-burlesque troupe – they are beautiful, dark, and dangerous.
  • Solar Sculptures by Shana Koenig – living light sculptures inspired by sacred geometry found in nature.
