The South Hill Experiment (S/H/E) is the band of brothers Baird and Gabe Acheson, raised in Baltimore and now based in Los Angeles. Both accomplished artists and producers in their own right, the brothers built S/H/E as a place — their warehouse studio on South Hill St, LA— and as a state of mind: making music as catharsis. 2023 kicked off S/H/E’s trilogy of LPs, with MOONSHOTS (LP1) marking the duo’s ethereal beginnings, and SUNSTRIKES (LP2) introducing guests such as Jeff Parker and earning a co-sign from the legendary David Byrne. March 2024 saw the release of an even more collaborative EP, South Hill & Friends, with features from Karriem Riggins, Maxo, Buck Raines, and Sofía Campos. To promote these projects, the brothers have pulled a variety of stunts, including a 24-hour live-streamed jam, free DIY rooftop shows, and running an actual marathon for a music video. After sold out dates in LA and NY, a live session on KCRW, and the band’s SXSW debut, the brothers are gearing up for the final installment of their trilogy and most ambitious project to date, EARTHBREAKS (LP3). Welcome to the Experiment.

Since its opening in 1939, Los Angeles Union Station has long been considered one of LA’s architectural gems and a vital portal to the promise of the California Dream.

The bustling 52-acre transportation hub sits in the heart of Downtown Los Angeles offering essential connections to destinations throughout Southern California. An iconic landmark, the Station serves as a vibrant symbol of Downtown connecting the historic fabric of the past to the present through arts, culture, transit and community.
