The 80’s called and they want their music back. Jonathan Bates is the deliveryman, bringing to the Lobster Festival stage his 21st century evolution/revolution of the post-disco era in music. This is art rock at its finest, soulful lyrics seamlessly blended with a heavily engineered tech beat.
“We love LA Font. If you don’t know them, you should reconsider a few things about your life, like whether or not you’re cool.” – Vice. Be cool, be there for LA Font’s show Friday night at the Lobster Festival.

Singer Emily Armstrong and guitarist Siouxsie Medley, who front Los Angeles’ Dead Sara — are an electrifying four-piece rock band whose supercharged music is propelled by Medley’s exhilarating, monster guitar riffs and Armstrong’s powerful, wailing vocals. Dead Sara brings the LA Waterfront alive Saturday night at the Lobster Festival.
“Deap Vally do one thing – well, two, really – very well. Like outrageously attired alchemists, they distill rock’n'roll down to its barest essences – thud, snarl, wooh! – and turn it into something precious again.” The Guardian. Not bad for a couple of local girls who met in a crochet class. They knit. They rock. Deal with it.
Described as “the Cold War kids with the ambition and control of Arcade Fire” Nightmare & The Cat is all we love about indie rock: Rough and ready drive with a blues edge.
A rock band disguised as a string quartet. An audience favorite wherever they perform, they have also appeared in recordings with hits by the Foo Fighters, Aerosmith, Dr. Dre, Christina Aguilera, Ryan Adams, Kanye West, Band of Horses and more.
No single artist better represents the emerging bridge between Latin music and American music than Chilean-born Maria del Pilar. She broke new ground with her former band Los Abandoned singing in Spanglish and effortlessly sliding between languages from lyric to lyric. Maria del Pilar was our first insight into the emerging cross cultural music scene in LA. Now on a solo tour, Maria gives a nod to Grace Jones as her inspiration. You can ride her wave as we kickoff the Saturday night evening show at the Lobster Festival.
Timewarp R&B, big smiles, 3 part harmonies, the Damselles & TC4 promise to take you to the prom and not leave a speck of lipstick on your collar. Honest.
Echosmith consists of siblings Syndey, Jamie, Noah, and Graham Sierota. Echosmith is an alternative- pop group with their own unique sound. Syndey’s voice is extremely powerful and memorable. Highlights of their set include “Come Together,” the band’s latest single, and a cover of “Melt With You.” Echosmith recently signed with Warner Brother Records and will be making their first local appearance after touring with the Vans Warped Tour this summer.
Glacial Walls is a Danish/American electronic pop band formed in 2013 in Los Angeles consisting of producer team Martin Audioun Klingman and Victoria Cecilia.

Dave Wakeling aka The King of Ska is back with his all-star band, playing hits from The English Beat, General Public and some of his new songs from his latest album. Expect the unexpected and prepare to be blown away at the Lobster Festival.
The international soul rebels from Orange County rev up Sunday afternoon with their original blend of ska, soul and punk.
“It takes a special brand of excellence to capture the sweeping, sonic landscapes and ringing guitars of eighties stalwarts like U2 and the Alarm, albeit without the sheer pomposity. Heads Full of Rust balances beguiling, crisp guitar pop arrangements with a gloomy undercurrent, but it does so in a way that’s always tuneful. Ambience is also a big part component of their sound, which soaks most of their tingling strums and crescendoing choruses.” – The Deli LA: Artist of the Month
LA is a bottomless well of music talent. Nothing personifies this better than the Beat Club. Taking their name from an old German TV show, they are an amazing blend of 80’s dance tunes spiced with a touch of hip-hop.
The Band was started by surf buddies, named after a surfboard, and still keeps that surf vibe alive to this day. Beach/Rock/Reggae! Rock on!
