In their decade-plus career, Circa Survive have continued to challenge themselves and test the boundaries of musical genres. Their latest album, Descensus, isn’t just an impressive illustration of Circa Survive’s constantly evolving creativity; it’s a testament to the strong bond the five members share. They’ve experienced career highs and personal lows, but their dedication to each other has never wavered. “We’re just in a really sweet spot in our career where a lot of the hard stuff from the beginning is out of the way, and we’re in this place where we know how to write a Circa song, and we also know how to walk outside of our comfort zone together and enjoy it,” guitarist Colin Frangicetto says. “It just seems like at this point now there’s really nothing to be afraid of.”

California Roots isn’t just a music festival; it’s a movement. It’s a way of life. It delivers a cosmic blend of good vibes, true happiness, family, peace, love and joy to all who enter. When Jimi Hendrix torched his guitar at the Monterey Pop Festival in the late ‘60’s, he changed the way an entire generation looked not only at music festivals, but life itself.
It is out of this same pure energy–the energy of natural and peaceful rebellion–that California Roots was born. We discovered the ecstasy that culminates from listening to awesome music, smiling at your neighbors and dancing with strangers; California Roots is about living life to the fullest.

Gothenburg's Little Dragon has steadily grown from being the biggest underground secret to international acclaim after four successful albums and touring all over the world. Their energetic live set and unique recording process has made fans out of some of the biggest names in music including Pharrell Williams, Questlove, and OutKast. Gaining popularity among such tastemakers led to collaborations with artists like Big Boi, The Gorillaz, Future, and SBTRKT and more recently with Mac Miller, Kaytranada, Flume and De La Soul. The release of Little Dragon's fourth album, Nabuma Rubberband was a culminating moment in their career after years of building a grassroots fan-base.
See Two Door Cinema Club & Grouplove with special guest Jack Garratt at the Santa Barbara Bowl Friday, April 14.
Two Door Cinema Club, continue to travel the world playing to sold out arena crowds, from Mexico to Japan, from Australia to the US and beyond, taking their new music to ecstatic live audiences; a testament to the unabated passion of their ever-growing legions of fans.
Recorded in Topanga Canyon, California with renowned producer Jacknife Lee (REM, U2, Bloc Party), Gameshow sees the band challenge themselves to indulge in a wide and varied range of styles and influences, stretching way beyond the traditional Two Door sound to take in the likes of Prince, Chic, Krautrock, Bowie, Neo Soul and modernist pop. The new album exhibits the sound of a band back in their stride, with a creative fire in their loins and a whole new centered sense of purpose.
There has been the tinge of fate to Grouplove since the beginning, when its five original members met at an arts colony on the island of Crete and formed such an immediately comfortable bond -- both personally and musically -- that they started the band upon their return to LA in 2010.
Grouplove continues to mature on Big Mess, which demonstrates their ever sharper instincts as songwriters and their growing ability to make a bright, bold, genre-defying sound that is entirely their own. The band members say they feel most inspired when they’re collaborating on new ideas with a completely open mind.
