JP of WHITE ARROWS and DIOS MALOS
An extremely entertaining and philosophical character, JP plays bass. Mickey Schiff, born legally blind but regaining his sight at 11, started White Arrows with brother Henry Schiff and childhood friend J.P. Caballero. However, unbeknownst to the brothers then, J.P. was literally family, courtesy of a sperm donation by his dad to help some friends conceive. The band describes their sounds as “a joyous burst of kaleidoscopic beats, genre-hopping and psychedelic textures,” all with a little bit of L.A.’s Eastside sound thrown in to make it feel like home.
AND THE ONE BEFORE:
From the Nickelodeon show Drake and Josh. Also a world famous musican.
We took calls for him all night.

TOUCHÉ (Bram Inscore and Alex Lilly)
Alex Lilly and Bram Inscore created Touché as an outlet for their repressed desires. They met as teens in an SF prep school, then each moved to LA to pursue individual musical aspirations – working w such luminaries as Beck, Charlotte Gainsbourg, The Bird and the Bee, Jackson Brown, M83 and Mike Patton. Alex fronted her own band Obi Best. Now the two have teamed up to win music once and for all. Bram and Alex are multi-instrumentalists with a penchant for classic pop songwriting, lush synthscapes and dance floor anthems.
DRUID BEAT (Joshua Patterson)
There is a lot more to say about Josh then what I'm about to say, but I've been sworn to secrecy. The Druid Beat considers their work a continuation of the traditions of the Mystery Schools of antiquity. They seek to use the power of allegory and symbolism to evolve earthly consciousness. "We hope to spur this planet's meta-physical growth. We are sons and daughters of the stars." They believe in exploring the science of matter as well as the science of spirit, and the synthesis of the two as an inevitable progression.
