Saturday, 5pm
A romantic for the apocalypse generation, STACEY crystallizes the nostalgic longing of golden age pop records into lyrical refractions for the twenty-first century. Cruising from 60's psychedelic day-trips to glossy 70's daydreams, STACEY's velvet textures have received glowing press from the likes of SPIN, LadyGunn, American Songwriter, Clash Magazine, WONDERLAND, Refinery 29, while her iconic floral live presence has led her to share stages with Charlotte Day Wilson, Tamino and Cameron Avery (of Tame Impala).
Nick Pagan
Saturday, 6pm
Nick Pagan is a Chicano crooner, composer, psychonaut, storyteller, and an old soul out of Northeast L.A. Rooted in the past with a finger on the pulse of the future, Pagan describes his sound as “New-Wop”—colorful sonic palettes, catchy hooks, and classic sounds ripe to be sampled.
Pearl & The Oysters
Saturday, 7:15pm
Pearl & The Oysters is the French-American duo of Juliette Pearl Davis and Joachim Polack. The pair met at high school in Paris and immediately bonded over their mutual love for ’70s jazz and ‘90s space age pop. They have been writing and performing together ever since, and moved across the Atlantic together in 2015.
Sunday, 2pm
LOUDA, the powerhouse Xicana creative and performer who is breaking boundaries in the music industry with her unique blend of jazz rhythms and Latin styles. Splitting audiences between her hometown of Chicago and the California Bay Area, LOUDA is transcending genres and gaining recognition for her exceptional stage presence and vocal fluidity. Launching her solo project in 2015 and currently being interwoven in 20XX Productions and co-producing a live band called LOUDA y Los Bad Hombres.
San Cha
Sunday, 3pm
Using her Mexican American upbringing, San Cha channels a wave of cultures to beautifully collide in a mix of genres. As eclectic in sound as she is in emotion and storytelling. At times haunting and full of ache and quickly thereafter an unstoppable dance force. A soundtrack for your heart and club nights with friends. Because of this her music has been featured on shows such as Starz TV show Vida and Growing Fangs on Disney+.
Bobby Oroza
Sunday, 4:15pm
After years of grinding as a sideman in the Finnish music scene, Bobby Oroza has stepped up to make his voice heard. Always with an air of crude romanticism, Bobby pushes towards an expression transcending the borders of soul and rock balladry. His dark and intimate debut single ”This Love” didn’t take long to reach the ears and hearts of a worldwide soul music community and is already a proper classic amongst the lowrider and soul collector scenes.




Free beer tastings will be provided by Fort Point Beer Company. Additional beer, wine, and soft drinks will be available for sale.

Food will be available for sale by Bacon, Bacon and Curry Up Now on Saturday, and Curveball and Mi Morena on Sunday.
