Capital Cities: In 2008, Ryan Merchant found Sebu Simonian on craigslist in his search for a collaborator. The two formed a composing team, and in 2010, they began producing material for Capital Cities. The band released their debut EP in June 2011 independently and soon after, lead single ‘Safe and Sound’ shot to #2 on Hype Machine and charted #1 on CMJ’s A&R unsigned spin chart. Capital Cities have played numerous sold-out shows in their hometowns of Los Angeles and San Francisco and embarked on a successful mini tour of the East Coast and Canada last October. In November, after reaching #1 on a rock station in Peru, the band flew to Lima to play in front of 1000 fans. After headlining the W Hotel New Year’s Eve party in San Francisco, Capital Cities returns to L.A. as 987FM’s January ‘Artist in Residence’.
DJ Ancona: Ancona aka Romy is a self taught musician making his way through the Hollywood and South Bay club circuit as an electronic music producer and performer. Having only been DJing for one year, Romy has quickly gained recognition amongst club owners and party goers as a reliable source of entertainment. While Romy Ancona does not have a specific genre, he most enjoys mixing various styles of house music but has adapted to put his own spin on the most popular music of today. Having shared Hollywood stages with legendary house names such as DJ Reza of Go Ventures and Mark Lewis of Mixology, Romy has earned credibility amongst Hollywood's top performers. His event resume also includes a sold out MAXIM Magazine New Year's Eve party at the newly renovated Chinese Theatre. For handling his own bookings and promotion, Romy Ancona successfully enhances business by bringing loyal fans as well as gaining new enthusiasts at every show he plays.
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.
