Olivia Fries-Farr (Music BFA 23) celebrates the release of her latest single “Illusions”—and her birthday—this Wednesday, Jan. 10 at the Silverlake Lounge in Los Angeles.

Released on Ubiquitous Records, “Illusions” includes several CalArtians on the credits, including David Velazco (Music BFA 21) on drums, Callen O’Brien (Music BFA 24) on bass, Aidan Cooper Ross (Music BFA 25) on lead guitar, and Andrew Bedows (Music BFA 22) on piano. 

Like the track, the evening features several CalArtian-heavy acts. Fries-Farr will be performing with her bands Ubiquitous and Precipice, both of which also feature multiple students, alums, and faculty from the The Herb Alpert School of Music at CalArts. Ubiquitous, her blues-rock project, features the talents of Joey Gold (Music BFA 24), Khristian Geisse (Music BFA 25), Marley Wall (Music BFA 23), Andreas Hester (Music BFA 24), and Binh Tat (Music MFA 25). Rounding out her metal rock/grunge shoegaze band Precipice are Music faculty Lily Guarneros Maase, Brent Lopez (Music MFA 23), Nate Ramer, and Hester.

Also performing at the lounge are Ty Teg and Misses Ellipsis, also fronted by and featuring several CalArtians:
