The Kooks - (Set time: 9:30 PM)
The Kooks

British rock band The Kooks are a self-described "pop" band that draw inspiration from various sources to create their unique rock sound, borrowing equally from the '60s British invasion bands and the post-punk revival of the new millennium to craft uncompromisingly catchy songs. The band have achieved massive success globally since their breakthrough into the mainstream with debut album "Inside In/Inside Out" (2006), which achieved quadruple platinum status in the UK within a year and earned the band awards for Best UK & Ireland Act at the MTV Europe Music Awards 2006 and a nomination at The Brit Awards for the single "She Moves in Her Own Way." Sophomore album "Konk" debuted at number one on the UK Albums Chart, selling 65,000 copies in its first week alone. Their third studio album, entitled "Junk of the Heart," was released on September 2011.

Following sold-out shows in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and at SXSW earlier this year, The Kooks are excited to get back on the road again, share material from their upcoming fourth album (the first music from the band in over two years), and play for their fans long into the nights.
Clara-Nova - (Set time: 8:15 PM)
French-American songwriter Sydney Wayser grew up in Los Angeles, summered in Paris and, until early this year, was stationed in New York, where she wrestled with a bleak winter and which direction her music would take after releasing solo albums in 2007 and '09. Her late-2012 dispatch, "Bell Choir Coast," addressed the latter dilemma. As for geography, she has moved back home to L.A. and adopted the band name Clara-Nova. "Bell Choir Coast" is a collection of smart, bright indie-pop with clattering orchestration, its calling card being Wayser's lithe vocals (which have been in fine form at Clara-Nova's current residency at the Bootleg). It's easy to imagine an L.A. native cooped up in a New York apartment writing "Dream It Up" — "I'm dreaming of mountains and paradise / with oceans and beaches and sunny skies" — and now that those visions are within her grasp, it'll be interesting to see where Clara-Nova goes.
