21+, cover TBA

– an experimental rock three-piece from San Francisco – consists of Alex Eliopoulos (guitar/bass/keys/vocals), David Molina (guitar/bass/keys/electronics/vocals), and Pepe Abad (drums/percussion).

The music’s experimental nature allows for both duo and trio performances by combining live instrumentation with loops & samples to create lush walls of sound.

Impuritan have released four albums on Distant Spore Records and received consistent airplay on KALX, KZSU, KFJC, KXLU, and positive coverage in The Bay Bridged, Pow Magazine, and KQED. They have toured the US West & East coasts, and toured Europe in fall of 2017.

Impuritan is a sonic embodiment of life, death, love, hate, space, time, evolution and extinction. An abstract dream or visceral nightmare. In stereo. Wellspring eternal.

Moon Darling (Seattle)
(9:30 pm)

There are those bands who recall an older time and place, a moment in history when music was more about saying something of substance than it was about counting the number of streams. Seattle psych rockers Moon Darling cling to this ideology, creating a bluesy sound that harkens back to that classic ’70s rock howl. By channeling the influence of bands like Led Zeppelin and Deep Purple (with a little bit of weirdness thrown in for good measure), the band builds a kaleidoscopic version of those artists that remains relevant and reverent among all the gaudy imitations littering the modern musical landscape.

(8:30 pm)

Chilindrina began when bassist, Gloria Martinez, and guitarist, Jerry Lozano’s previous group, a local San Jose dreampop band known as, Casting Circles, dispersed due to creative differences. The Two met drummer, Michael Walsh and guitarist, Sebastian Figueroa, also San Jose locals, at a Casting Circles show in San Francisco, CA a few months prior to the group’s split. Vocalist, Lizzie Whitfield’s “singer for hire” internet post read well and soon the 5 piece began churning out some noisy and moody jams at their practice studio, which happens to be on old Victorian farm house built in the 1860s, in San Jose, CA. The Band’s sound is a result of growing up on Matador and 4AD and a back catalog of sad and noisy indie rock spanning the last 4 decades.
