6:00 PM | JASON LEE & THE RIPTIDES
Jason Lee (@tikiguitarplayer) is one of our surf guitar heroes who puts on a mental live show. Jason Lee & The Riptides have been Southern California's premiere surf/lounge band for over 9 years and they are only getting hotter. With a signature blend of surf riffs mixed, latin-fusion rhythms, and a hint of exotica these talented musicians and their squad of go-go-dancers have catapulted to global fame. With a high energy performance and cult following, they have been a fan-favorite of San Diego's World Famous "Tiki Oasis" Weekender. If Shaper Festival is your first time seeing this act you are in for a treat.

12:15 PM | BIRD CONCERNS
Bird Concerns is a four-piece garage rock band from Los Angeles, California. The musical collective began as a collaboration between fellow CalArts students, Marcus Buser (Bass, Vocals), Travis Meador (Guitar, Vocals), Jake Sucher (Guitar, Vocals) and Cooper Wolken (Drums, Vocals). Built upon four-part harmonies, interweaving guitars and infectious rhythms, Bird Concerns is delivering a fresh approach to rock’n’roll.
Inspired by their jazz and classical studies, the vibrancy of the Los Angeles art scene and rock bands such as The Zombies, Deerhoof, and The Cure, Bird Concerns has succeeded in crafting their own unique take on rock music. “We wanted to make something that is rooted in tradition, but has something new to say. We're more interested in asking questions than giving statements.”, reveals Buser.
