The garage-punk Le Butcherettes are like the brilliant offspring of surrealist Luis Buñuel and intrepid rock icon PJ Harvey. Led by 25-year-old vocalist/guitarist/pianist Teri Gender Bender (a recent transplant to El Paso, TX from Guadalajara, Mexico), Le Butcherettes' songs and wildly cathartic live shows have often drawn comparisons to Karen O, Patti Smith, Bikini Kill, and many other female-fronted rock groups, but there's a theatricality to Le Butcherettes that brings a further reaching sense of mystery and imagery to the band.

This electric live show has led to extensive tours with legendary artists such as The Flaming Lips, The Mars Volta, Iggy Pop & the Stooges, Faith No More, The Melvins, Jane's Addiction, The Deftones, Queens of the Stone Age, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Dead Weather and The Melvins, along with appearances at Coachella, Lollapalooza, Corona Capital Festival, Fun Fun Fun Fest, and Sonar Festival.

Despite the relentless tour schedule, Le Butcherettes have released a steady stream of critically acclaimed music. Their debut EP, Kiss & Kill, in 2009 was nominated for "Best New Artist" and "Best Punk Record" awards at Mexico's Indie-O Awards, while their second full-length Cry Is For the Flies (2014, Ipecac Recordings) won the award for "Best Punk/Garage" in 2015. Omar Rodriguez-Lopez (At The Drive In, The Mars Volta, Bosnian Rainbows) has produced all three Le Butcherettes full-length albums to date. You can hear guest appearances from Iggy Pop ("LA UVA"), Garbage's Shirley Manson ("Shame, You're All I've Got Left"), and Henry Rollins ("Moment of Guilt") across the band's discography.

Le Butcherettes released their third full-length album, A Raw Youth, on Ipecac Recordings in the fall of 2015. They are currently on tour with At The Drive In and will continue to tour on this album through 2016 with new music in the works.
Stars At Night
Stars At Night
East LA's very own sensational quartet of fierce female Angelina's Stars At Night who make a dirty, energetic, and powerful rock, spiced with punk, psychedelia, and plenty of attitude, have become a tour de force of sound and style in LA's underground scene. With influences that range from Black Sabbath to Yeah Yeah Yeahs, this bands sound is an amalgamation of raw force and elegant artistry.

Lead vocalist/rhythm guitarist Janelle Obert illuminates the stage with her powerful vocal range don't let her charm fool you her captivating performance will set you in a trance of frenzied excitement. No less is the seemingly inexhaustible energy of drummer Joana Rubio. Creating the ground shaking heartbeat of each song, Joana pumps each song to life with shear power, talent, and presence. Bass player Elizabeth Banuelos never fails to keep the ground shaking with the raw deep riffs of her bass. Rounding out these four bright stars is guitarist Seleste Diaz. Behind the subdued stage presence is the sharpness and vision of a brilliant musician who seems to weave together hair-raising, hip-gyrating riffs and melodies as if from the ether. It is the authentic [visual and auditory] beauty of Stars At Night that will propel them to stellar heights.
Stars At Night's trajectory has caught the attention of both underground and popular music groups, all who have invited Stars At Night to perform as part of their shows' opening line-up. SANs (Stars At Night) live performances captivate audiences and make believers out of skeptics. They are made up of four elements of awesome, jagged-edged rock.
