Grand Central Market LIVE: Oliver Riot
August 27, 2016

SATURDAY, AUGUST 27th, 2016

Two Sets | 8:00PM - 8:45PM & 9:00PM - 9:45PM

Oliver Riot is comprised of Benjamin and Alexander Moore, identical twins from New Mexico, USA. The brothers spent their youth busking bars, breweries, and street corners, performing gypsy music in the style of Django Reinhardt before moving to Los Angeles. Shortly following their move, Oliver Riot took home first place in the Grammy’s annual “Rock The Mic Competition”, showcasing emerging California artists, and were awarded studio time with legendary producer, Mike Clink (Guns N’ Roses, Eddie Money, Metallica, etc.).  

Oliver Riot just released their debut EP, Hallucinate, produced in its entirety by accomplice "Real Miilk” in the back room of a Korean Church. Alexander lived in his van parked outside of the church while creating this record, and continues to do so while recording the duo’s next album. Often compared to James Vincent McMorrow, James Blake, and Passenger, IndieTrendSetters says, "Oliver Riot is a dazzling point of unnoticed incandescence, an ineffable aurora devoid of deserving admirers, a true work of underground art that makes mainstream music look like superficial sham."

Based in Hollywood, CA, the twins are now wrapping up their second highly anticipated EP entitled Neurosis which is set to drop mid-2016. Oliver Riot is represented by United Talent Agency.
