Past Genesis shows have always delivered a diverse array of up-and-coming performers. the 2014 Genesis event will take place on Friday, September 5 at the Theatre at Ace Hotel Downtown Los Angeles, with L.A.-based emerging musicians, artists, dancers and filmmakers hand-picked by curators Spike Jonze, Karen O, Alex Ebert, Beck, Cat Power, Shepard Fairey, Santigold and Jakob Dylan. The party will start outside the Ace Hotel with a live graffiti artist (curated by Fairey, of course), local artists and food vendors, then move into the theatre for live music by SoKo, Rodrigo Amarante, The Garden, Nite Jewel, Mary Ocher, Moses Sumney, Nico Turner, Vorhees, Aaron Embry, and The Donnies and The Amys, with more to be announced.
