Dusty Santamaria + Moira Ichiban / Cult Tourist / Trashcat

unnamed.jpg

Dusty Santamaria + Moira Ichiban

Songwriter poet Dusty Santamaria met multimedia artist Moira Ichiban on a full moon night in Portland, Oregon. They quickly fell in love, bowed out of their urban lifestyles, and ran away to form an art
focused rock n roll band in the Southern California desert.

Together, the two delve deep into recesses of the rock n roll psyche. Drawing influence from mid-century R&B, gospel, doo -wop, country, and punk to create minimalist dream songs ablaze with shouts, shudders, and symbolism. Primitive drum beats and swamp water guitars serve as a backdrop for vivid, impressionistic lyrics.

The duo have cut their teeth with DIY tours up and down the West Coast and as far east as New Orleans.Their debut album “Love Under Will” was released in 2017 on their own Voodoo It Yourself label.

The Wires / We Drew Lightning / Bigawatt

WIRES-1-5.jpg

- - - The Wires - - -

The Wires features ¾ of the seminal noise-rock band the Late Severa Wires. Launched out of Santa Fe in 2001, The Late Severa Wires has created a new breed of music that can be distinctly known as their own.

The Wires have gone on numerous tours drawing critical acclaim for their unique ability to push the boundaries of their instruments and music.

https://highmayhem.bandcamp.com/album/the-late-severa-wires

- - - We Drew Lightning - - -

Michael Smith and Roland Ostheim have been creating music for almost nine years starting with the band Derail. After some changes in lineup, the band pursued its lush sound and started recording "Swimming With Orange" in 2006-07 on High Mayhem Records. Throughout the recording session there was a need to change identities to progress into a new existence. During one of the recordings sessions the studio was struck with lightning during a take on one of the bands integral songs , and We Drew Lightning was born.

We Drew Lightning is propelled by Michael Smith's bombastic drumming, Roland Ostheim's textured guitar work, and now with Aaron Jenks on keyboards adding more dynamics and sonic texture. The band is a culmination of song structures and sonic improvisations in the vein of such influences as Sonic Youth, the Melvins, Pixies, Bardo Pond, etc... too much to name!

Loud, Sensual, Engaging are all words that could describe their sound. We Drew Lightning are a duo of Ruthless Sweethearts that attack with a wall of sound, but bring you back down to earth only to propel you again to another planet.

Bigawatt is Marisa Demarco (Chicharra), a journalist, musician and event curator in the high desert. Bigawatt is only one person. And sometimes she plays with others.

Free Kittens & Bread / The Hammeritz / Flossy Clouds

FKB_N-C-M-G.jpg

Free Kittens & Bread was founded as an acoustic solo project in the small town of Princeton, TX inside Chase Spruiell’s unairconditioned shed in the middle of summer.  After recording Recluse (2013) he moved to Austin where the full band took shape with bass, guitar (Mark Hawley), and drums.  Every show produces high energy punk music mingled with the heart of old folk tunes.

Following the tail end of their Recluse tour, the band released their EP entitled Puppet (2014). The record was met with reviews as “an infectious toe tapping head bobber,” and a “punky folk country mashup that’s hard to beat” (Aimless Skylarking).  After the return from their “Somewhere Warmer” winter tour and the following West coast summer tour, the band released their first full length, American Miserablist, on April 1st then immediately set out on a U.S. tour.  Their latest single, “Brainless,” has been called an “instant punk classic” (Bearded Punk).  The band is currently working on new material, preparing for a tour in early 2017, and they will likely be around until the universe contracts, tearing everything and everyone apart.

The Hammeritz
We're a two piece out of Santa Fe, NM composed of Chris Raetz and Ben Gerhards. It's not punk, it's not rock, it's not metal, it's not blues...

Teach Me Equals / Stronger Sex / Future Scars / ppoacher ppoacher

TeachMeEqualsbyNickVecheryinLouisville.jpg

Teach Me Equals (Olympia, WA)
Teach Me Equals is a music duo whose sound is characterized by the unorthodox use of electric stringed instruments, live loop manipulation, and damaged, idiosyncratic rhythmic textures. The project originated in Sarasota, FL and is currently based out of Olympia, WA.

Teach Me Equals are recognized for their relentless touring, merciless live performances, and unique take on the pop format. Their debut album, Knives In The Hope Chest, was self-released in September 2014 to emphatic critical response.

In June of 2015, Teach Me Equals teamed with the SHMIB Modern Dance Collective for a series of sold-out performances of Knives in its entirety choreographed for 23 dancers at Chicago's Links Hall. Later that year, the group appeared on the cassette compilation PNMV#4, celebrating the re-launch of Pacific Northwest indie label, Punk In My Vitamins. Currently, Teach Me Equals is working on a second album with plans for release in 2018. 

http://www.teachmeequals.com/

Stronger Sex (Olympia, WA)
Stronger Sex is an experimental electronic duo that boasts dynamic live performances. The band has existed in various forms since 2012 and has toured extensively throughout the US, Iceland, and Spain. Frontpersons Leah Gage and Johnny Fantastic sing incredible harmonies while programming the music live on an all hardware setup (no computers allowed). With songs ranging in topic from gender identity to mental illness to space travel to Armageddon, Stronger Sex tackles the personal and political with sincerity and a sardonic sense of humor. Stronger Sex is on a national tour to promote singles from their upcoming full-length release, There is No Stronger Sex (Blight. Records), produced and engineered by Ben Schurr of industrial no-wave band Br'er, whose influence can be heard throughout the record.

HALLOWEEN SHOW w/ OHMME, akousmata, Scissor Lift & PSIRENS

MAS_3651 (1).jpg

<< OHMME >>
Ohmme is an experiment in voice and sound by Sima Cunningham and Macie Stewart. Inspired by the Chicago improvisational music scene, Cunningham and Stewart joined forces in 2014. Their combined vocal and musical talents yield a dichotomy of harmony and chaos leaving the audience wanting more. Ohmme has been compared to PJ Harvey, Kate Bush and Tortoise, but their inane chemistry creates something uniquely satisfying and different from their predecessors. They are currently touring as a trio with drummer Matt Carroll to support their OHMME vinyl release. 

https://ohmmemusic.com/

<< Akousmata >>
Akousmata is an instrumental trio that brings a raw, in your face, punk aesthetic to their
extreme brand of free improvisation. Although the music is loosely classifiable as jazz, it more frequently takes inspiration from metal, harsh noise, Agharta-era Miles Davis, and industrial. Akousmata uses subliminal narrative to provide a structural substrate and directionality to the sonic landscapes traversed in their psychedelically cinematic performances. Split between the CA Bay Area and Santa Fe, NM, the band is comprised of Mike Rowland (The Late Severa Wires), Ben Tempchin (Grove of Baal, Fantasy Man), and Aaron Jenks (Grove of Baal, We Drew Lightning).

Liv Lombardi
Liv Lombardi is an award winning singer-songwriter currently based in the greater New York City area. After studying acting and music at Santa Fe University of Art and Design, Liv took her act on the road, touring across the United States and Europe multiple times within the past three years; over 10 countries and 40+ cities
www.livlombardi.com

Courtney Yasmineh
Courtney Yasmineh isn't necessarily a rulebreaker, she just plays by her own rules. From skipping town out of Chicago as a teenager and holing up in a cabin in northern Minnesota, where she focused an obsession with Bob Dylan into the beginnings of her craft as a songwriter, guitarist and singer, to self-releasing six albums and several EPs, and doing nine (and counting) tours of Europe and a half-dozen in the US (all self-booked, no less), she is simply unstoppable. With each album she's continued to expand her musical universe, stretching across the spectrum from indie pop to alt-country to full-tilt rock and roll, all the while writing better and better genuinely smart songs that are deeply personal yet touch on subjects and feelings everyone can relate to.
www.courtneyyasmineh.com

Ten Ten Division
Fronted by powerhouse vocalist/guitarist and Minneapolis native Vonnie Kyle, Ten Ten Division was formed in Santa Fe, New Mexico in 2017. After releasing her first two EPs, "Run Run" and "Cold and Bitter Girl" as a solo artist in her native state, Kyle relocated her life to the warmer climates of Santa Fe, where she found a home amongst a flourishing community of artists and musicians. After pulling together a trusted group of cohorts- David Badstubner on drums, Mark Williams on bass, and Daniel Mench-Thurlow on lead guitar- Kyle and her newfound gaggle of rockstars together crafted a sound that blends all of the delicious vibes of both folk-rock and garage-pop. With influences that pull from the likes of Brandi Carlile, Jenny Lewis, No Doubt and the Killers, Ten Ten Division prides themselves on being the "Frankenstein's Monster" of bands, offering up a little something for anyone who loves fun, catchy music.
