Rose City Cinema is an alternative-electronic rock band based in Los Angeles. Their songs unite Ian Stahl’s thought-provoking lyrics and distorted guitars, Janzie’s hypnotic synth lines, Jason Fragoso’s wailing drums, and Eric DeLuca’s grooving bass lines. Combining the gritty grooves of classic 80's bands from the UK with the jangling rock of the West Coast, they will get you on your feet, dancing and singing along. Their latest single, "Manhattan Pier" was hailed by Pop Fad as "the soothing summer breeze we so desperately need." "Manhattan Pier" is an up-beat bop with big vocal hooks and stellar production. Under their previous moniker, Cilience, their song "Promises" was featured in the Pasadena International Film Festival (2021) and Glendale's historic Alex Theatre's 95th birthday celebration (2020). This follows on the heels of the Event Horizon EP, which charted in the top 200 on National College Radio Charts. Together, they will get you on your feet, dancing and screaming along.
Rose City Cinema first met in 2016 at the California Institute of the Arts. As their sound developed, Ian, Eric, Jason, and Janzie began touring throughout California. They have played at famed venues such as the Viper Room, the Bootleg Theater, and the Troubadour in Los Angeles, Winston’s OB in San Diego, and the Hotel Utah Saloon in San Francisco. They solidified their name in 2021 after crafting their new EP, Blank Slate.
