A few of their songs included “Swallow the Sun”, “Roads”, “In the Shadows” and Sean McCune (drummer) even sung an unreleased song. A great upcoming band that is definitely worth checking out.

Next up is a Hard Rock band by the name of Syndicate 4 from the Inland Empire of Southern California. They consist of four members, Jeff Hardin Jr (guitar), Jason D’Amore (bass), Danny Olsen (drums), and completed with Dan Dye (vocals). It was actually Jeff Hardins birthday that night and what a way to celebrate your birthday. They opened their set with three singles off of their 2019 album Nosedive and closed out their set with their song “All About Me” which had fans wanting more.

Next to hit the stage is Ancira, a post-hardcore band local to Southern California. They brought an undeniable presence to the stage, opening with a new unreleased song. The band is made up of four members, Jimmy Brooks (drummer), Rob Bonham (bass), Richard Hatfield (guitarist), and Drew Stone (vocals). They take inspiration from bands such as A Day to Remember, Knuckle Puck, and Neck Deep. The band closed out there set with their debut song “All That We Know” that was released just shortly before the 2020 pandemic hit. 

Following up is Sound Curfew, a younger aged band from the high desert of Southern California. They are known for their alternative rock sound and love bouncing between genres. The band is made up of three members, Graham Davis (bass), Gus Beeler (drummer), and Dominic Parker (vocals, guitar).

As they hit the stage they are fronted by the lead singer and founder, Hugo Ferreira followed by Sebastian LaBar (guitarist), Jaron Gulino (bass), and Jon Loree (drummer). Tantric is well known for their hits such as “Breakdown”, “Down and Out”, as well as “Astounded”.
