Haathi - (Set time: 7:45 PM)
Having played drums for notable LA bands like James Supercave, Alina Bea, and Steady Holiday (the latter of whom played Coachella in 2016), Brijesh Pandya steps out from behind the kit to front his new project, Haathi, which released its debut single, “Say Goodnight,” in October, 2016. Previously, Haathi released a cover of the song “FRNDZ” by the Miracals, which was featured on the New Professor Music label’s five-year anniversary compilation album. A rotating lineup of Pandya’s talented comrades from the LA music scene help to bring Haathi’s music to life onstage.

Indie Beat-

“We always knew (Pandya) was very talented, but damn does he conquer with his new single Say Goodnight…. 70s funk & modern psychpop tendencies support Haathi’s dance-infused indie rock sound. Reminiscent of St. Lucia, the track is addictive, fresh and cleansing with vocals that have a ruminating openness. You’ll be grooving and nodding in no time.”

Free Bike Valet-

“(Haathi’s) debut single, “Say Goodnight…”is a bop of indie rock with a buoyant tempo and a catchy chorus channeling a worldbeat vibe that would make Gotye jealous.”

Buzzbands LA-

“(Pandya’s) first single as Haathi…is a slow-building indie-popper with an insistent groove that will make you a believer by the end of its 3 1/2 minutes.”
Ruby-Throated - (Set time: 7:00 PM)
Ruby-Throated is a Los Angeles-based trio, best described as indie alternative music.

They have an EP out called Like The Hummingbird and are currently working on their first full length album to be released soon.
Scott Bartenhagen - (Set time: 6:15 PM)
Scott Bartenhagen
Scott Bartenhagen is a tall 26-year-old with a weird last name, a native of the tiny town of Lathrop in California's Central Valley, and a folk singer and guitar player. Scott's hometown is a sleepy place at the foot of the infamous Manteca Waterslides, a beloved (now closed) water park. In Lathrop, he picked up his mom's guitar in 6th grade, got into jazz, and eventually found his way into Tejano music group Los Bandidos, a band he toured with for several years, before engineering an indie folk sound all his own.

The Central Valley's music scene is robust and competitive, and Scott found himself developing a unique style that merges folk music storytelling, the colorful harmony of jazz, and some of indie rock's moodiness – his sound triangulates Joni Mitchell, Grizzly Bear and Jackson Browne. Watching him play, you also notice he's developed a one-of-a-kind guitar mastery to go along with this hybrid genre, his left hand stretching to grab jazzy chords, his right hand plucking out folky patterns.

As his sound started to develop and critics began to take notice (David Greenwald, now of The Oregonian, once remarked that Scott is "the most promising young singer in folk music"), he dropped out of California State University Sacramento and moved to Los Angeles. His label debut, the EP "Black Dane," comes out June 30, 2015 on New Professor Music.
