This event is 21 and over

We begin in the year 2008 with Josh, Dan and Brian. Three unassuming, well mannered and fun-loving fellows from a town near the sea. Regressed, mutated and collectively known as Fartbarf, they somehow bring us all into the future, captivating audiences with relentless melodies, robotically tight rhythms, and danceable beats by use of a strict limitation of tools at hand; vintage analog synthesizers, vocoders, drum machines, analog modular systems, and live drums.

Band Aparte
Employing a brooding blend of nervy post-punk and beachy West Coast goth rock, Los Angeles-based Band Aparte is originally the brainchild of Brian Mendoza. Inspired by seminal underground bands like Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, the Cure, Echo & the Bunnymen, Sonic Youth, New Order, and Dead Kennedys, the band's clever pairing of gloomy darkwave and big pop hooks eventually landed them at L.A. indie label Manifesto Records. The resulting Memory on Trial, their debut long-player, was released in 2016.
Band Aparte recently released a new EP in 2018, To the House of Stairs, on Devour Records. This release saw the addition of Ryan Fairchild and James Glenwright---polishing up their sound, where Memory on Trial left off.
