Event Details

The Dirty Diamond

The Dirty Diamond is a rock band with true chemistry and timeless dynamic songwriting. The four-piece has been cultivating a substantial grassroots fanbase during the last decade with their high vibration live shows and fantastically innovative studio recordings. The band is comprised of some of the most sought after LA based session players.. drummer Shay Godwin, bassist Derek Frank, and guitarist Fernando Perdomo. Their eccentric and soulful singer/guitarist Sam Babayan is a shaman-like troubadour with lyrics, melodies, voice and slide guitar playing that takes the listener through a rich multi layered sonic journey. 

State To State


Hailed as the Los Angeles flag bearers of alternative rock, State to State stand out for their live performances, innovative approach to songwriting, and the powerful, soaring range of lead vocalist Shea Stratton. State To State routinely plays to sold-out crowds across SoCal. State To State routinely plays to sold-out crowds at most legendary LA venues. After taking part in the final Vans Warped Tour in 2018, State to State joined multi-platinum selling Candlebox on tour for part of their 25th anniversary that fall. Candlebox invited State To State to support them again at LA’s iconic El Rey Theatre in 2019. The band performed at Milwaukee’s Summerfest 2019, providing main support to Collective Soul. State To State released their most recent single "Undead Love" Spring 2020; a first taste from their upcoming sophomore album, produced by Johnny (Megadeth, Disturbed, 3 Doors Down), due in 2021.

The Sonic Universe


Los Angeles based band, The Sonic Universe is fronted by international recording artist, Alex Arndt, a Virginia Tech graduate originally from the Washington D.C. area.  Arndt has toured and performed in over a dozen countries worldwide including Ireland, Netherlands, Japan, Peru, and Australia. He was featured at one of the largest electronic music festivals with 150,000+ strong crowd, Ultra Music Festival at the Olympic Stadium in Seoul, Korea. 

Arndt’s deep and rich vocals seem to be somewhat nostalgic of the legendary David Bowie with a style that echoes hints of Mick Jagger and Steven Tyler.  The Sonic Universe has been pushing the boundaries of genre by combining elements of rock, pop and dance music into an electrifying cosmic sound. 

Tyler Steele

Tyler Steele is the quintessential LA native who came through a lineage which makes his poetry and point of view as unique as they come. His father synthesized the cocaine that got all the rock stars high for a decade, but then he got arrested. His lawyer became Tyler's stepdad who started Death Row Records where Tyler got exposed to even more fantastical madness. Through the turmoil and danger, Tyler turned to the pen for solace and reckoning and in those torrent times, developed his voice as a truly gifted poet. From dysfunction emerged a painstaking shamanic POV ready to weave the antidote into his songs. 

From Berklee School of Music to New York to London, around the globe and back to LA, Steele emerged wiser, burning like a Pheonix above his family tree as it burned beneath. He was ready to record. Having already been injected with the LA venom, Tyler found himself in the serendipitous circles that would bring his music to shine, recording with the cream of the crop boutique musicians in his hometown. He has been extremely prolific with poetry always at the forefront of his songwriting. He is a story teller with his archive of material still unreleased. They ask him what he's been waiting for, “As the cobra or the mamba would say, ‘the perfect, deadliest moment to strike.
