Freddy Trujillo - (Set time: 11:00 PM)
Freddy Trujillo
Freddy Trujillo is a singer/songwriter/bassist who hails from Simi Valley, CA. He grew up in a highly musical family. His father, Fred Sr., sang and played guitar in various groups, including The Beethovens, an all-chicano beat combo who gigged all over the southland during the great garage-rock boom of the mid-1960's. His sister A'me Loraine scored two top-ten dance hits in the early ‘90s.

Freddy himself played with Pat Smear (Nirvana, Germs) and many other local L.A. acts during the explosion of punk/alternative music that hit L.A. in the '80s and '90s. Freddy soon re-located to Portland, Oregon and released his acclaimed debut solo record Hawks & Highways, which dealt with the intertwining of Native American and Chicano experiences in rock & roll form. He has since been a sought-after player in the ever-burgeoning Portland scene, having formed the well-respected (yet short-lived) Chicano-rock ensemble Caguama, and, most recently, joined established and internationally touring Portland acts Richmond Fontaine and Fernando.
The Craftsmen - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
The Craftsmen
The Craftsmen play the obscure R&B and soul tunes they found on dusty 45s in the bargain bins of local record stores. While most of these songs recount tales of heartbreak and cheating, you'll still inexplicably want to get up and dance.
DJ Sugarfoot - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
