Tijuana Tears was formed in early 2012 and is comprised of 3 Los Angeles natives and 2 wanderers out of Austin, TX. The quintet's debut EP 'Phantasmic Consciousness' was released in the fall of last year and the band is currently working on writing/recording its follow-up.
The Street Hearts
They don't have a CD. They've been a band for only a few short months. They are four college undergraduates who, despite their passion for music, are studying English/History, Cognitive Science, Engineering, and Dance. They are not yet known far away from UCLA. Still, perhaps the best way to describe them? “The best band you’ve not yet heard of, but should someday.”
Meanwhile, THE STREET HEARTS have already been discovered by LA-based luminaries and won more awards in their few short months than most bands win in a lifetime. One critic, when first hearing them, exclaimed, "What the folk!” In other words: easy to listen to, and even easier to love. Paula Abdul joined a panel of celebrity judges who selected The Street Hearts as BEST BAND at UCLA's 2013 Spring Sing, where they performed before 8,000 fans. These same 8,000 fans voted The Street Hearts as winners of the prestigious Bruin Audience Choice Award. Around the same time, The Street Hearts also won UCLA's JazzReggae 2013 Battle of the Bands and opened LA's JazzReggae Festival, despite their music being anything but jazz or reggae.
The Roxy is proud to have The Street Hearts' return after their debut gig outside UCLA on Oct 11. The band's members consist of Nicholai Hansen, from Brookline, MA, on bass/guitar/drum/vocals, and three native Californians: Andrew Giurgius on guitar/lead vocals, Nick Valentini on keyboards/vocals and Sarah Summers on banjo/guitar/vocals.
Take a chance on a new sound by an infectious new band you've never heard before, first by previewing them on Soundcloud and YouTube (search “Street Hearts UCLA”), read about them on Facebook (The Street Hearts) and then, as the band members themselves say, "Be there, or be not there."
Carlton is an alternative-pop trio based in Los Angeles, California. They are characterized by well crafted pop songs with an energetic live show. They released their first self-produced EP "Stretching" in October of 2013 and have stayed busy touring up and down the west coast since then. In June and October of 2014, Carlton released their singles "Drift” and “Trigger Happy” to critical acclaim, earning them features on notable music blogs such as Good Music All Day, The Burning Ear, Kings of A&R, Kick Kick Snare, Free Bike Valet, The Undiscovered, Absolute Mag and more. Carlton is currently working on a new release and will be touring with Shwayze on the 2014 Feel Good Tour this fall.
