PETEY (9:00 PM)

Hey Whatsup, 

My name is petey and I’ve been playing drums since I was in third grade. I make indie rock music that sounds like the music  I listened to in high-school and still listen to now. I also make videos with director crane. I’m excited to play these songs live on my biggest tour so far. It is going to be really fun. 

YOUNG JESUS (8:00 PM)

The music of Young Jesus has always been about change. Bandleader and sole original member John Rossiter is a restless spirit, always moving, always seeking new sounds, new thoughts, new methods of working. Young Jesus’ new album Shepherd Head is a dramatic departure for the band, delving deeper into the themes that have always fascinated Rossiter—love, heartbreak, God—approached in a completely new direction. It’s a record of growth and exploration, pushing forward into the future with hope while still holding the pain and regrets of the past, seeking a balance for the present.

Young Jesus began when John Rossiter dropped out of college after doing acid with two of his high school friends and decided to join their band. After several albums, he moved to L.A. with the intention of never playing music again. However, the new environment woke something up in Rossiter, and he began to write music at a furious pace, recruiting a new band to explore this new evolution in sound. That time for Young Jesus was marked by experimentation and improvisation, as the band toured and put out three records with Saddle Creek.

A few years later, the band had drifted apart from too much time on the road, and Rossiter became restless. After the tragic death of a close friend, Rossiter felt a need for change. “I can be kind of a perfectionist and a pretty intense band member,” says Rossiter. “I drove the band really hard for a while, and I don’t think I realized how hard I was doing that. Everyone was just burnt out on me and on each other. And I think I had wanted to reflect on that more, why I did push so hard and why I could be so demanding and stubborn.”
