Ballad of the Band: a tribute to FELT
Ballad of the Band: a tribute to FELT
Comprised of core members Wayne Faler (Dream Boys), Nic Hessler (Wild Nothing), Jessica Espelita (LA Takedown), and Derek James (The Entrance Band, Mazzy Star), this group of friends and die-hard fans of the seminal 80's English indie-pop group FELT got together in 2017 to perform a set of the band's music for the Part Time Punks night at The Echo in Los Angeles. Due to an overwhelming demand to continues doing performances, the group got together again for a special night at Zebulon in early 2019. Featuring guest appearances from friends Darren Rademaker (The Tyde), Matt Fishbeck (Holy Shit), Ariel Pink, Tamaryn, Dinah Hanson-Carrillo, and more, the group continues to enjoy playing the music of FELT out of pure love and joy for the music.
The Pesos
The Pesos
The Pesos started out in the sunshine of Southern California in the balmy summer of 2013. After an inspirational jaunt to the hilly country of Austin, Texas, they returned to the west coast emboldened with a southern twang that enhanced the surf vibes they had been playing up and down the California coast. Accompanying the likes of the Growlers, Allah-las, and the legendary Ronnie Spector, the Pesos endeavor to embody the spirits of their influences – that of Maurice Deebank, San Onofre and the Velvet Underground. The Pesos are Yaan Pessino, Joey Bonano, Brendan Sepe, Devon Rogers, Avery Chandler.
Light Fantastic
Light Fantastic
LIGHT FANTASTIC is Terry Sowers, Rex Shelverton, Jeremy Bringetto, Rachel Hoiem and Charlie Knote

While a musical project that had been in the works for a few years, Light Fantastic was officially hatched during one of the warmest San Francisco winters in memory. In an effort to harness the unusually blue skies, Terry Sowers (who has played with Farmer Dave's SF live band) and Jeremy Bringetto (Tamaryn, Bellavista) paired up to realize the sunnier side of pop music, inspired as much by obscure California sunshine pop records as the late night soul music often heard spilling out of the local clubs. Friend and collaborator Rex Shelverton (Tamaryn, Bellavista) was later added to the lineup, handling production duties and lead guitar. Their self-titled EP is out on Spiritual Pajamas and their debut full length is slated for a release in summer 2016.
