This event is all ages
When NIGHT RIOTS first broke out on the scene, the Los Angeles-based quintet was touring in support of Howl, their critically acclaimed EP featuring the hit single “Contagious,” which shot to No. 1 on SiriusXM’s Alt Nation while amassing over 4.5 million streams.
The EP drew comparisons to The Cure (MTV) and The Killers (Earmilk), was described as “new wavey bliss” (Billboard) and saw the band praised for their “anthemic, synth-laden rock” (Spin).
The band (vocalist Travis Hawley, bassist Mikel Van Kranenburg, guitarists Nick Fotinakes and Matt DePauw and drummer Rico Rodriguez) played hundreds of shows in support, sharing stages with the likes of Lana Del Rey, Morrissey, Cage The Elephant, Walk The Moon, OK Go, The Mowgli's, Angels & Airwaves and many more, while also garnering praise from the likes of KCRW, Huffington Post, KROQ, All Things Go, Nylon and AV Club, among others.
Their current LP is LOVE GLOOM, an album Buzzbands described as “the sound of urban desperados wandering rain-slickened streets, hearts playing tug-of-war with hope and despair.” Among the album’s many highlights is “Nothing Personal,” “Fangs,” “Breaking Free,” and “Don’t Kill The Messenger,” all part of a collection of songs filled with moody-but-danceable melodies and atmospheric arrangements.
As of 2019 Night Riots has amassed over 74 million Spotify streams and is currently wrapping up their sophomore album at Palmquist studios in LA before embarking on a headlining release run.
Moontower, a three-piece indie-electronic band, seeks to tell the story of a young man named William Holywood. This protagonist, much like the individual members of the band, has found himself lost in the jungle of suburbia, chasing lost loves and remedying broken promises as he navigates the odyssey of adolescence. But don't feel bad for young William; though he may be down on his luck, his journey has just begun. Moontower is excited to invite you into his world, one of ninjas, rollers skates, pickaxes, and orange juice breakfasts.
As a band Moontower is known for their captivating live performances that feature their industrial electronic indie-pop anthems. Moontower has shared the stage with artists such as Bad Suns, YUNGBLUD, and MAGIC GIANT.
