Here's another tune by our Saturday headliner; completely different from the last "Wet Gold" song I posted; below is a video for "Porno Disaster" (an image I'm trying not to think of) from their first album "Identification Parade" released in 2002. The song gets REAL(ly) good at the :30 mark.

Opening for our Saturday night headliner is DJ Tony Fresch; Having opened for Diplo and opening for Steve Aoki the Tuesday after Kohoutek, I have no cooler way of saying it, but Tony is definitely about to blow up on the electronic music scene. Take a look at his own original "Oh No Techno" below, and if you've ever wondered what the sensation of dancing unbelievably hard in the middle of a jungle would be like (more commonly know as the genre Moombahton) there's a few songs for that as well...

Yet another Kohoutek band to look forward to: L.A. based alternative/indie rock duo the Morning Birds. Definitely stripped down kind of rock sound, not too many bells and whistles which is a superbly nice change of pace; here's the video for their song "It's Then You'll Know":
Here's their myspace for more info:

Here is song "Silver Screen" from another one of our Kohoutek artists, duo Jordan Koplowitz and Reed Juenger who make up the group Beat Connection. They self-define their sound as like, "waking up to a sunset", and I have to say I don't disagree; I wouldn't mind waking up on the Pitzer mounds after a night of Kohoutek and hearing this. (Plus, they're kind of cuties.)
Also, if you want some more info and music take a look at their Myspace: Beat Connection

I don't know exactly why that Pharoahe Monch song is at the beginning, but I am digging it; definitely many points to American Royalty. Here's a link to a video of them re-recording a sped of version of their song "For the Record". Super awesome, especially when the vocals kick in. GET PUMPED.

We've solidified our second headliner: Phantogram! They hail all the way from New York (yeah!), playing this really titillating and awesome combination of electronic samples, synth and live guitar; A sort of dancey, indie-rock aesthetic that will be certifiably enjoyable at Kohoutek. Below is my favorite song of theres "When I'm Small" from their 2010 album Eyelid Movies.
Here's their myspace for a little more info: Phantogram Website
