Help The Doctor

“Help The Doctor” is not your typical Los Angeles based band. These four surgeons create innately catchy melodies backed by the crunch of twin guitar attacks and a versatile rhythm section. From the ashes of “Killing Phantoms,” P. Danger's resplendent former New York City band, comes a shiny new outlook filtered through the California sunshine and topography. Coming together in full force in January 2012, Danger (lead vocals, guitar) found fellow revelers in hooks and love of indie rock and roll on the hallowed grounds of the UCLA medical campus. Each member brings their own unique journeys into the fray: Rip Towns (guitar, keys, vocals), a classically trained pianist and guitarist virtuoso from Baltimore, Jay Roost (bass, vocals), a home-grown LA bastion whose fluid proficiency combines a wealth of styles, and Sol Power, the unerringly solid and even keeled drummer from Santa Barbara. With both a sold-out debut and headlining show at the legendary Troubadour in West Hollywood, these docs are ones to watch. Look for their debut EP this fall recorded with Grammy award winning producer Chris Testa (Jimmy Eat World, Dixie Chicks). Fans of catchy rock and roll in the independent vein (Weezer, Death Cab for Cutie) will have much to love here.

Blood Wisdom is a multidimensional music/art project formed in New Jersey circa 1996. Now residing in Los Angeles, CA, Blood Wisdom exhibit a raw, diverse musical style spanning, but not limited to, both Proto/Post Punk, Gothic Psychedelia, Shoegaze, and straight up Rock N Roll. Combining these elements with poetic lyrics and a high energy, often confrontational live performance, Blood Wisdom is a Herald for the creative spirit, untamed and unafraid in its expression.

Sons of Gold

Sons of Gold is an indie rock band that was formed in Los Angeles, California. Their fast rising sound resembles the musical stylings of bands like Death Cab for Cutie, Modest Mouse, and Brand New.

A music enthusiast once described them as “almost like Weezer and old school Kings of Leon had a California baby.” Lyrics discussing love, loss and the broken parts of a marriage are combined with vintage surf rock and post-hardcore guitar tones that linger in the memory like the twilight hues of a desert sunset. Sons of Gold has a variety of song-styles including but not limited to rock, indie, singer/songwriter, pop punk, and post hardcore.

Their members consist of Jared Auwarter (Frederick, MD) on bass, Devin McGee (Wilmington, NC) on drums, Michael Carpenter (Detroit, MI) as lead guitarist, and Dustin McKamie (Kansas City, MO) as lead vocal and guitarist. They are currently working on recording their first single.
