Flor de Toloache
Latin Grammy® winning, New York-based all-female ensemble and beloved press-darlings, Flor de Toloache continue to win the hearts of both progressive and traditional mariachi music fans alike through their distinct artistic vision and sophisticated, enlightened interpretation of traditional mariachi instruments. The female quartet’s diverse ethnicities and musical backgrounds have also transcended culture and gender by forging new paths. Like the legendary love potion, the Toloache flower is used for in Mexico, the ladies of Flor de Toloache cast a spell over their audiences with soaring vocals and physical elegance. The group is led by co-band directors Mireya I. Ramos on violin and Shae Fiol on vihuela. Together, they have graced international stages from Chenai, India to Paris, France and have extensively toured the U.S. as the supporting act for The Arcs (the new project of Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys), as well as Cafe Tacvba, La Santa Cecilia, and Natalia Lafourcade. Upcoming shows include the ACL Festival in Austin TX, Alaska tour with Ozomatli and dates with Ana Tijoux.

Velcro (DJ Sets)
Formed in the summer of 2012, Velcro is the collaboration of two LA-based DJs Littlefoot and the Sweet Leech. As predictable it may be, the two met at a nightclub but the result was just the opposite. They quickly found their sound over a matter of steady studio sessions within the course of just a few weeks, which is best described as a twist on deep house and nu-wave bass music. While both producers have performed from coast to coast on their own, they both hold a common motive when placed in the booth together; to bring some soul back into the world of modern house music. Currently spending all their time locked into the studio, Velcro can be found working on an endless stream of original EPs, remixes for local friends, and throwback edits. Stay tuned!
