FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 28
After establishing a sound on their debut Voyage and establishing an identity with the revelatory Generation, L.A. disco-not-disco duo De Lux took a moment to re-center and come back leaner, sharper, clearer and deeper on their new More Disco Songs About Love. Now that co-founders Sean Guerin and Isaac Franco know how to play and what to say, they’re ready to just get lost in the music. As the band puts it: “We like to say Voyage was our baby, Generation was our baby all grown up and More Disco Songs About Love thinks growing up sucks and just wants to party smart.
THE FRENCH TIPS
The French Tips is a dance punk trio from Boise, Idaho. They met in the Boise punk scene and formed the French Tips to play covers at the local Inaugurate Resistance show in January 2017. They quickly realized their shared love of dance songs that rage and went on to write their debut album “It’s the Tips.”
AFTERPARTY WITH TRASH FENCE
SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 29

It has led to numerous high profile appearances, ranging from Carnegie Hall to Pickathon, Mountain Jam to Treefort Music Fest, while headlining shows coast to coast.
The Shivas are a rock and roll band from Portland, Oregon formed in 2006. In the years since forming they have brought their raucous dance party to almost all 50 states, and over 25 countries worldwide, meanwhile releasing five full-length albums and three EPs on labels such as Tender Loving Empire, K, and Burger Records.
