CAPITAL CITIES
CAPITAL CITIES
Los Angeles duo of composers Ryan Merchant and Sebu Simonian initially met on craigslist in 2008 and worked as jingle writers until they formed the indie electro band Capital Cities in 2010. They released an EP independently in 2011 that included the song “Safe and Sound,” an upbeat mesh of synths and melody that spread like wildfire across the Internet.
 
Soon after, the music industry and the rest of the world took notice. Capitol Records signed the band’s indie label Lazy Hooks and released Capital Cities’ debut album In A Tidal Wave of Mystery in June, 2013.
 
“Safe and Sound” went multi-Platinum in the U.S., Canada, Germany, Mexico, and others, and shot to the top of numerous international charts, including number one on alternative radio in the U.S. and number eight on the Billboard Hot 100. The music video, a celebratory mash-up of dancing from various eras and cultures, received a VMA and a Grammy nomination.
 
The band has played in front of hundreds of thousands of fans on four continents. Merchant and Simonian are joined by bassist Manny Quintero, trumpeter Will Artope, guitarist Nick Merwin, and drummer Aaron Prather.
PLANET BOOTY
PLANET BOOTY
Dance to their eclectic electro-funk, grind to their original R’n’B grooves, and sweat under the intense, penetrating gaze of frontman Dylan Charles Germick as he begs you, in all sincerity, to love yourself no matter what.

'Nominated for Best Band in this year’s Best Of The East Bay contest, Planet Booty is on the rise and for good reason. Maybe it’s their radiant energy and stage presence, or perhaps it’s the unique mix of elecro-funk, soul, and live instrumentation. ' --East Bay Express
