Today, LA duo The Bots join a stellar lineup of bands performing from their beds and hotel rooms as a show of solidarity for the thousands of sick kids around the U.S. who will spend the holiday season in their hospital beds as part of Bedstock.
The Bots perform a stripped-down acoustic version of their song "No One Knows" from a hospital bed in Portland, Oregon last month.
Other artists performing for Bedstock include: Chromeo, Mark Foster, Madison Beer, Raury, Langhorne Slim, Shakey Graves, and more.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Bedstock coincides with Giving Tuesday, a global day of giving back after the mass consumption of Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday. Bedstock supports MyMusicRx, a free-of-charge program that infuses the hospital environment with live music and offers seriously ill kids and teens 24/7 access to digital instruments, music lessons, games, concerts and personal artist greetings at www.mymusicrx.org.

Pink Palms was recorded in Los Angeles and produced by Justin Warfield, with additional production by Yeah Yeah Yeahs' Nick Zinner. The album was mixed by Michael Patterson (Nine Inch Nails, The Notorious B.I.G) and mastered by Emily Lazar (HAIM, Arcade Fire, Foo Fighters).
The Bots are Los Angeles brothers and bandmates Mikaiah and Anaiah Lei (17 and 21 years old). Their distinctive sound brings together the veracity of garage/punk while paying homage to the American blues and ballad tradition. The Bots are deeply intertwined in the American music narrative while, at the same time, carving out a wholly new, powerful, uniquely personal storyline.
