Music at Aurora
Girlpool is a Los Angeles based two piece made up of Cleo Tucker and Harmony Tividad. Having met at local DIY venue the Smell, the two quickly grew very close. Their sound is comprised only of a guitar, bass and vocal harmonies. The band uses this bare bones instrumentation to accentuate their vulnerable yet powerful lyrics to create honest pieces, tackling concepts ranging from awareness and respect to the simple feeling of being alone at a show.
Roz and the Rice Cakes
You know em! You love em! The ridiculously rad Rice Cakes & ringleader Roz return to Aurora!
Rad Los Angeles rollickers — we don’t think they’re French, they’re definitely not vanilla!
