The O.C.'s own female-fronted octet Half Past Two headlines this ska-punk spectacular, leading a stellar bill that includes Stupid Flanders, Papafish, Sugar Stems and more. Lead singer Tara Pearce takes center stage for the ska/rock/reggae band Half Past Two, which also boasts a prominent horn section and has impressed both fans and critics with their live shows and debut album It's About Time. Stupid Flanders, named after one of Homer's favorite mutterings on The Simpsons, cites influences like Reel Big Fish and Sublime for their skalternative sound, which also benefits from a trumpet-sax combo. They'll be joined by several other acts from SoCal's active ska scene for a full night of upbeat jams. Learn More
A Flock Of Seagulls-As well-known for their bizarrely teased haircuts as their hit single “I Ran (So Far Away),” A Flock of Seagulls were one of the infamous one-hit wonders of the new wave era. Growing out of the synth-heavy and ruthlessly stylish new romantic movement, A Flock of Seagulls were a little too robotic and arrived a little too late to be true new romantics, but their sleek dance-pop was forever indebted to the short-lived movement. The group benefitted considerably from MTV’s heavy rotation of the “I Ran” video in the summer of 1982, but they were unable to capitalize on their sudden success and disappeared nearly as quickly as they rocketed up the charts.
