Lawrence Rothman - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
Lawrence Rothman
Lawrence Rothman is a Los Angeles musician with tremendous talent and
grand vision. Influenced by the music of Leonard Cohen and Tom Waits,
the writings of Sam Pink, and the art of Mike Kelly, his music and
message are vastly compelling. For his forthcoming debut album,
Lawrence worked with acclaimed producer Justin Raisen (Charli XCX, Sky
Ferriera, Ariel Pink, etc) to create something electronic, which
ambitiously morphed into a fully analog to tape album with a handful
of the most prestigious musicians out there. Lawrence created a full
scope, enormous record diving into the realm of self-discovery and
acceptance. Lawrence appears as 9 "alters", similar to the Cindy
Sherman of music. The alters are ever-present throughout the project,
with Lawrence performing as them for shows and videos - sometimes as
an Albino guy or a bald tattooed metal head, a beat up hipster or
Elizabeth Taylor, just to preview a few. The videos are shot by
revered director Floria Sigismondi, cohesively matching the cinematic
scope of his music. It's rare to have the music, imagery and the
fascinating lead figure all be outstanding and aligned. This is the
case for Lawrence Rothman. Lawrence's debut album "The Book of Law" is
out on October 13 via Downtown/Interscope Records.
Cheeky - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Cheeky is pop producer Kaylee Sabatino, a Philadelphia based singer-songwriter with a background in classical piano. She compiles everyday sounds, voices, and her Gaia synthesizer with ambient vocals to construct petite compositions with catchy beats. Her debut project “Jung,” a small taste of Cheeky’s haunting and delicate style, was released in May of 2016.

Cheeky is currently working on her first full-length album, Flora, due mid-October. The album promises length and complexity, reflecting her development as both composer and producer since the release of her EP.
