Irene Diaz, Jack Rabbit, Kylie Spence & Mexico City Heartbreak

October 24 7:00 pm PDT

Main Stage

Doors Open: 6:30 pm

$15

Throughout her life, Irene Diaz has always been about The Search. For identity. For expression. For music and her place in it, and for a creative community and direction that best serves her mission. All of that can be found in Diaz’s songs and on Lovers & Friends, the California singer-songwriter’s debut full-length album which was recorded in both Mexico City and Los Angeles. With its captivating melodies and richly nuanced ambiance, it introduces Diaz as an artist who’s taken many paths to get to this point and is excited to find even more creative roads to travel as she moves forward. Lovers & Friends is, in effect, a new beginning for Diaz and a fresh destination for what’s been a long musical path. What began in 2013 with the I Love You Madly EP — and praise from NPR’s Felix Contreas raving “her sheer power belies her compact stature, and her musical impact is simply immense.” At the same time, Diaz is already eyeballing her next creative Way station. “This has been a big project that I never imagined taking so long,” she says. Lovers & Friends is expected in 2021.

JACK RABBIT– This duo met in an audition room in Boston, singing harmonies before they even exchanged names. This chance encounter between Mo, a queer artist from Texas, and Andy, an educator from Mexico, quickly became the project now known as Jack Rabbit.

Jack Rabbit’s music ranges in genre, from soft harmonious folk to gut punching indie rock. Their sound is the memory of holding a hand – and for the span of a song, either getting to hold it again or finally let it go.

What started out as late night, wine fueled staircase storytelling sessions turned into years and cities of collaboration and friendship. The two have converged in Los Angeles alongside pal and producer, Elijah Wells to turn those staircase songs into a handful of singles and a debut EP – set for release in early 2022.

Kylie Spence is a youthful singer-songwriter with an old soul from Bozeman, Montana. For Kylie, performing, writing, and composing are means of processing and releasing her thoughts and feelings. At a young age, her creativity began finding an audience at school talent shows, musicals, and eventually open mic nights. After saving up to buy a guitar and then teaching herself to play, she was writing one song a day by the eighth grade. Kylie’s music can be described as deeply empathetic pop with universal appeal, speaking to difficult topics beyond her age.

Kylie’s debut single “Lying Eyes” was on the iTunes Hot Tracks playlist in 2017, and she supported Dennis Lloyd on his sold-out European and Israel tours in 2018. Her first EP Boomerang followed later that year, quickly garnering tens of thousands of monthly Spotify listeners and millions of combined streams. In 2019, Kylie’s single “Garden” was added to multiple New Music Friday lists. Her soulful covers, well-known on social media, can also be heard on SiriusXM’s Coffee House channel.

The self-aware girl next door who’s in tune with her emotions, Kylie wants nothing more than for people to connect with her art. She doesn’t solely write about herself — or for herself. Many of her songs dive into topics that can be difficult to speak about openly. Kylie is a true storyteller at heart with an innate gift to pen powerful lyrics and incorporate them into well-crafted, original songs, using her unique voice to do so.

Mexico City Heartbreak is an indie rock band with a punchy yet melancholic sound based out of East Los Angeles. The band is currently working on recording and releasing an EP set to be released in 2022!
