1. The Birth Defects at The Echo — 7:20 p.m.

The Birth Defects band

These guys fuckin’ shred. Their new album, First 8 Mistakes is produced by Ty Segall and was released this past April on Nathan Williams’ (Wavves) record label, Ghost Ramp. Featuring ferocious frontman, Jason Finazzo along with Petey Dammit from Thee Oh Sees, former Bleached drummer Jonathan Safley, and Jason Gerken of Shiner/Hum—these guys are gonna bring it. If you like it hard, fast and loud be sure to catch The Birth Defects cap off the night at the Grimy Goods stage at the Echoplex. Their set begins at 7:20 p.m.


2. Sad Robot  at the Echoplex — 4:50pm

Sad Robot

Serving up a delicious slice of indie pop that is both haunting and vibrant, Sad Robot will give you the best of both worlds. Sad Robot’s use of sullen undertones and vibrant pop melodies is an attractive combination, and front-woman Kat Pawlak is absolutely stunning live.


3. Sand Babes at The Echoplex — 6:30pm

Sand Babes

They may be fairly new to the local music scene but already Sand Babes are bringing a bright sense of honesty to their music as they begin to hone and craft their dreamy psychedelic sound. Full of Dick Dale-like surf vibes, you’re gonna want to drink up their psychedelic elixir of sounds.


4. Two Sheds at The Echoplex — 4pm 

Two Sheds

Led by the charming vocals of Caitlin Gutenberger, Two Sheds deliver tender and rhythmic indie rock, fused with folk undertones. If you dig the sounds of Lucinda Williams or Cowboy Junkies, you’l love their vibes. They’ll definitely be setting the tone for a chill ride. Get lost in it.


5. Crown Plaza at The Echoplex — 5:40pm

crown plaza band

As the side project of So Many Wizards’ lead singer and guitarist, Nima Kazerouni, Crown Plaza will tantalize all your senses with their electronic indie pop. It’s sexy, it’s dreamy and it just feels mmm mmm good.


* Full disclosure: we’re a bit biased today, since Grimy Goods has a stage at the Echoplex and all the bands listed above are playing our stage! Even if it wasn’t our stage, we’d still select all of them as recommendations.
