    That 1 Guy

    With an extensive and amazing track record of unique and imaginative performances featuringhis curious instrument and copious amounts of originality, Mike Silverman aka That1Guy has set himself apart as a true one-of-a-kind talent that rivals any other artist currently in the entertainment industry. Averaging 150-200 shows a year all over North America and Canada, he has been a consistent favorite at such festivals as: Wakarusa, Electric Forest, Big Day out, All Good, Bella, High Sierra, Summer Meltdown, Montreal Jazz Festival, and many more. He was also the ʻTap Water Awardʼ winner at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival for best musical act. His legendary collaboration and multiple tours with Buckethead as The Frankenstein Brothers has further cemented his virtuoso story as a creative visionary as well.

    His innovation continues to soar with the announcement of another tour kicking off in January 2014, which will feature live video projections on a completely unique rig invented, created and operated by the guy himself. Along with his pioneering main instrument, The Magic Pipe, a monstrosity of metal, strings, and electronics, facilitates the dynamic live creation of music and magic in ways only That1Guy can conjure, expect to see magic as well now integrated into the already clever performance. With this addition of incorporating magic seamlessly into his live shows, he has legitimately achieved an all inclusive audio/visual performance unlike anything experienced before. “So much of my music has miraculous qualities to it because itʼs hard to tell whatʼs going on. There are lots of slights of hand and sonic misdirection. It feels like I was meant to do magic”.

    Silvermanʼs backstory is very similar to many musicians that have come before him. He grew up a self proclaimed music geek, soaked in the influence of his jazz musician father, and enrolled in San Francisco Conservatory of Music before joining the local jazz scene himself as a sought-after percussive bassist. This is where the similarities end, though, and where That1Guy truly began. “In my case, being a bass player, I just felt very restricted by the instrument itself,” he says. “Iʼve always wanted to sound different and have my own sound. I was headed that way on the bass, but for me to fully realize what I was hearing in my head sonically I was going to have to do it my way”. His influential and innovative double bass style eventually evolved into what we see today as That1Guy and ʻThe Magic Pipeʼ.

    As his story continues to develop, Billboard has famously noted, “In the case of Mike Silvermanʼs slamming, futuristic funk act… the normal rules of biology just donʼt apply.”

      Rich Yarges & the Pop Mechanics

      It took a decade for the Pop Mechanics to come together. There was always much "campfire" talk between Jim, Pete and myself for years, some sober and some not, about forming this band. We finally decided it was time and with the addition of Rob DeMarais on bass the group gelled. Our sound is heavily influenced by the Pop Groups of the past from Big Star to Ramones to The Replacements. All four of us are seasoned veterans in the music scene formerly playing in bands such as God's Favorite Band, Dander, Truck Stop Love, Vitreous Humor and The Grande Machine. We're not planning on making the big time but we hope to put a smile on your face as well as a tear in your eye.

        Stiff Middle Fingers

        SMF came together in 2010 when Travis Arey (Panda Circus, The Akanes), Cameron Hawk (The Dead Girls, Hidden Pictures), Barry Swenson and JP Redmon (Many Moods of Dad, Podstar) thought it would be fun to put together a short, blistering set of some of their favorite classic punk tunes. Since then, the list of songs has grown exponentially, and the SMF stage show has become nothing short of incendiary. While the band has been known to perform entire sets by certain bands (like the Descendents), they have recently started writing their own songs and plan on showcasing both originals and covers on a regular basis.

        Stiff Middle Fingers (SMF) is primarily a classic punk cover band. We play songs by Black Flag, Descendents, Minutemen, The Jesus Lizard, Ramones, Sex Pistols, Buzzcocks, Dead Kennedys, Wipers, Misfits, The Damned, Devo, Husker Du, Bad Brains, Mudhoney, The Vapors and many more...including Stiff Little Fingers, of course. We also write our own tunes from time to time, which carry the militant, SST-style DIY aesthetic of the songs we cover.

        18 & Over | 8 pm

        Dirtfoot

        Dirtfoot is an all original, all acoustic band out of Shreveport, LA. Forming in early 2002, they've been honing their songs and craft in bars and pubs across North Louisiana, Southern Arkansas, and east Texas. After winning the Shreveport Times Battle of the Bands in January 2006, doors have really been opening. Now playing festivals like Voodoo Music Experience in NOLA, Wakarusa Music Festival in Lawrence, KS, Diversafest in Tulsa, OK, Mulberry Mountain Harvest Music Festival in Ozark, AR, Cutting Edge Music Festival in New Orleans, LA, Red River Revel in Shreveport, LA, Northgate Music Fetival, College Station, TX, etc, and playing major markets like Austin, Nashville, Memphis, New Orleans, etc, things are definitely looking up.

        Led by the organic writings of Matt Hazelton with each player adding his own flavor and feeling to the songs and sound of the group, Dirtfoot is a blend of eclectic styles as well as diverse personalities. By far, their claim to fame is their high energy shows and overwhelming crowd participation. They involve the fans with infectious grooves, call and response songs as well as their famous "Beancans'. Each show, bean cans (homemade shakers) are passed out to the audience which turns them into a part of the percussion section. Though all of their instruments are acoustic, their energy and ingenuity will make you swear they are plugged in. Featuring instruments ranging from an acoustic guitar, banjo, upright bass, pots n' pans, drums, bells, saxophone, xylophone and more, this band has a truly engaging sound, a real dose of Gypsy, Punk, Country, Grumble Boogie! It is like a good gumbo - you have some growling vocals, upright bass and percussion that makes a good, dark, dirty Louisiana roux, mixed heartily with some meaty rhythms, combined liberally with fresh offerings from the guitar and banjo that are like okra and tomatoes picked from your backyard garden, topped with the hot n' sexy spice of the saxophone and jazz style drums, and finally a little something magical and indescribable, and you have Dirtfoot - a delicious, spicy, dirty band that will make you stomp your feet, shake your ass and yell like a lunatic on a full moon night.

            CloZee & Psymbionic

            Hailing from Toulouse, CloZee is Chloé, a young music producer who seamlessly combines technical precision with a wild imagination. An accomplished instrumentalist, she began playing the classical guitar at 11. Influenced by edIT, Bonobo, The Widdler and Amon Tobin, she started producing electronic music at the age of 16.

            In 2014, she won the ‘Best International Newcomer of 2013’ at the UK Glitch-Hop Award.

            Her tracks defy genres, oscillating between Glitch-Hop, Trip-Hop, Future Bass and World Bass. She created her own place in the glitch community, thanks to a unique, highly surprising style mixing powerful basslines, funky off beat percussion, world instruments and emotional cinematic sounds. Her recent track ‘Koto’ (Otodayo Records) is about to reach 1 million plays on Soundcloud in 6 months, and already more than a million views on YouTube in only 2 months.

            A musical identity which led her to play in the USA (more than 45 dates in 2014/2015, including the festivals Coachella, Camp Bisco, Sonic Bloom, Enchanted Forest, Farm Fest & more) but also in Canada, India, Germany, Ukraine, and more than 30 different cities in France, alongside artists like Bonobo, Gramatik, Chet Faker, Pretty Lights, TOKiMONSTA, Tipper, GRiZ, Phutureprimitive, Big Gigantic, Papadosio, and Stwo.

            Runner-up of several remix contests (launched by artists Mr. Bill, Asian Trash Boy, Crazy Daylight, Daenine & more), CloZee was spotted by respected labels such as Gravitas Recordings, Glitch Hop Community, Otodayo Records, Adapted Records, Digital Whomp and has continued to evolve her sound and push the boundaries of modern production.

            Cresting the modern wave of electronic producers, Psymbionic creates aural experiences that explore the range of multi-tempo Bass Music within an influential and dynamic culture. With an ear for situational relevance, Psymbionic enjoys turning non-traditional sound design and infectious rhythms into dancefloor heat, while also maintaining his history in the downtempo, emotive side of the electronic sound.

            John Burcham has been moving bodies and turning heads as Psymbionic for several years in all corners of the USA, playing with acts such as Bassnectar, STS9, Big Gigantic, ill.Gates, Excision, EOTO, and Tipper. His passion and innovation in the music world are showcased through album releases on Muti Music and MalLabel, as well as in his role as label manager for the popular Electronic imprint Gravitas Recordings.

            In a live show context, Psymbionic confronts mixes that are limited to the scope of the build and release, avoiding an industry epidemic of drop-monotony that overpowers the flow of music. Burcham seeks to prove that there are more powerful influences in moving a crowd than simple tension, providing an interwoven dynamic that relies on the strength of his blend, rather than the sole force or familiarity of the apex.

            Psymbionic’s theory of music is a journey that doesn’t visit the same place twice, building excitement for what’s next not because you can anticipate it, but because you’ve never been there before.

                Play Dead

                18 & Over | 8 pm

                Play Dead

                As we approach the 50th anniversary of the Grateful Dead in 2015, this group of talented and eclectic musicians has come together to celebrate the remarkable repertoire and live experience of the Grateful Dead. More than what you’d expect from a typical tribute band, this group embraces the foundation of what made the Dead’s sound so unique by creating a landscape of masterful improvisation, rich harmonies and beautiful melodies across all genres of music.
                While this group of players has never before taken the stage together, they have all been in connection for more than 20 years and possess over a century of experience writing, teaching, performing and producing music. Boerger and Comparato have played and performed together in the L.A. Ramblers, The Deal, The Coyote Project and most recently Stranger Tractor. Additionally Boerger’s music roots include Tofu Teddy, The Red Zone, The Parlor Frogs, Diamond Eyed Jack & Flint Gray. Hoopes’ credits include The EZ Pieces, Ardys & Bradford, The Secondhands and with Mahoney, venture back into the 80’s with the east coast jam band MoonRocks. Hoopes and Hamm have played together in The Yards since 2003. Bassett and Mahoney are a seasoned and accomplished percussion duo with numerous credits for session work as well as their performances in their bands Sunu (in which both Bassett and Hamm play), Truckstop Honeymoon and 40 Watt Dreams (in which Mahoney play).

                Together Play Dead produces an uncanny rendition of a part of musical history that was genius, ahead of its time and may never be experienced again. To say the music and culture of the Grateful Dead had a profound effect on the course that music has taken over the years is a grave understatement. Whether you’re a card carrying Deadhead, a Hi-Fi music aficionado or just a music junkie who loves a good groove you will not want to miss Play Dead.

                Let The Music Play The Band!

                  David Allen Ho

                  David Allen Ho’ got his start playing drums at house parties and in local dive bars around his native territory of rural North Dakota. Influenced by some of the greats, such as John Prine, Townes Van Zandt, and Hank Williams, as well as contemporaries like Lucero and Drive-By Truckers, he eventually learned a few chords on guitar and mandolin and started to write and perform his own music. He sings his songs of lost love and unwanted change with a unique voice stained by cheap cigarettes and alcohol.

                  In 2014, David traveled to Minneapolis, MN to record his debut EP “Eight Feet Wide & A Mile Deep” at Silver Ant Studios, enlisting the help of a few Minneapolis musicians and friends to round out his band (Brian Wheat, Joe Kopel, Tommy Tousey, and Ryan Holweger).

                  Hailing from the rolling hills of Kansas, Tyler Gregory can regularly be found busking on city streets with his deep voice and steam-powered melodies bouncing off the street-side architecture. His sturdy songcraft takes cues from WWII-era blues bellowers like Leadbelly and Son House.

                  Gregory's mix of blues and roots music howls with a sense of passion and freedom. Singing songs portraying stories of travel, land, and the meaning of simplicity, Gregory goes full force on his guitar/stomp-box live performance arrangements.

                                    Leopold and His Fiction

                                    From the very first stages of creating Darling Destroyer, Leopold and His Fiction frontman Daniel Leopold found himself at the mercy of inspiration in a way he’ d never experienced. “ This is our first album that happened out of necessity,” says Daniel, singer/guitarist for the newly Austin-based band. “ With the other records, making music was always a luxury. I could move at any speed, along any meandering path, and I did. This time the songs came to me with such an impact I was forced to commit myself to getting them out before I had a chance at losing them forever. There wasn’ t any time to ponder over anything.” The fourth full-length from Leopold and His Fiction, Darling Destroyer echoes that urgency with a savage yet soulful sound testifying to Daniel’ s Detroit heritage. “ I hear my upbringing in this album more than anything I’ ve ever done in my life,” Daniel says. “ The songs were telling me, ‘ This is what you’ re made of, so trust it.’ ” Equally rooted in dingy garage punk and Motown’ s pop-minded R&B, Darling Destroyer burns with a frenzied intensity true to its emotional origins. “ Looking back, these songs came from a place of fear and vulnerability,” says Daniel, who wrote much of the album while awaiting the birth of his now-five-year-old daughter. “ It was my first time ever dealing face-to-face with the severity of that type of emotion and translating it into words. Harnessing its power in the studio pushed me in a way I’ ve never been pushed before.” Throughout Darling Destroyer, Leopold and His Fiction reveal their gritty ingenuity by merging delicately crafted lyrics with blistering guitar work. Co-produced by Daniel and Chris “ Frenchie” Smith (...And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead, Ringo Deathstarr, Jet), the album gracefully veers from the self-mythologizing swagger of “ Cowboy” and sinister reverie of “ Boy” to the dreamy doo-wop of “ I’ m Better Off Alone” and lilting folk of “ Who Am I.” On “ Free,” agitated rhythms and fuzzed-out basslines make for a blissfully frantic lone-wolf anthem, while “ Flowers” matches its confessional complexity with the slow burn of the song’ s horn-powered arrangement. “ That one came while on the road driving through a mountain town way high up in Colorado,” says Daniel of the latter. “ I was completely lost and more vulnerable than I’ ve ever been in my life, living within a dualism of tension and love, each pulling me toward vastly different arenas of existence. Attempting to apply anything I knew to the responsibility on the way seemed inconceivable, and ‘ Flowers’ expresses the feeling of facing up to that.” From track to track, Darling Destroyer proves Daniel’ s easy prowess as a frontman, his vocals endlessly shifting from brutal wail to tender serenade. That unhinged yet nuanced performance reaches a glorious peak on “ I’ m Caving In,” which Daniel initially penned as a country song but eventually twisted into a heart-stopping blues number. “ I’ m in no way a country artist, but to me, classic
                                    country and classic R&B songs are synonymous in terms of what message they’ re trying to deliver,” he notes. And with its scorching guitar riffs and thrillingly raw vocal performance, “ I’ m Caving In” emerges as a down-on-your-luck epic that turns desperation into transcendence. For Leopold and His Fiction, creating an album as sublimely chaotic asDarling Destroyer took a lifetime of cultivating a kaleidoscopic musicality. Born and raised in Detroit, Daniel first began making music after finding a forgotten about guitar in his grandmother’ s basement as a child. “ It had only two strings, but I took it home and started studying immediately,” he recalls. He also played drums in a band at school and learned to play horns and bass, but his focus remained on the guitar. “ I’ m an only child and was always alone, but I was lucky enough to have an instrument I could bury myself in,” he says. “ It was a kind of gold mine, having such an outlet growing up.” Moving to California to study writing in San Francisco, Daniel put those years of practice to use when he started crafting songs for the first time. (The band’ s name nods to the main character in a novel he attempted to write — his only try.) He then channeled his literary inclinations into the lyrical element of the band. “ Especially in the early days of Leopold, the songs were entirely character-driven,” he says. “ I’ d write a mini-novel for every song.” Releasing their self-titled debut in 2006, Leopold and His Fiction built up a reputation as a powerful live act and landed gigs supporting ZZ Top, Gary Clark Jr., and Dr. Dog. (The band’ s current lineup features Alexander “ Z” Lynch on bass and vocals, Jeremy Holmsley on keyboards and vocals, and Mark Henne on drums.) Between their 2009 sophomore release Ain’t No Surprise and 2012’ s 3, Daniel co-founded the folk outfit Cowboy and Indian, and spent several years touring and recording with the Austin-based band. “ Cowboy and Indian picked up momentum really fast; it was something I had to do,” Daniel says. “ It wasn’ t that Leopold ever stopped, but it was clearly imperative that this other project, and these other people, needed me as much as I needed them.” With his return to Leopold and His Fiction, Daniel revisited his approach to songwriting and strayed from his novelistic tendencies. “ You can say any one thing a million different ways,” he says. “ For these songs, the more direct I could be, the better it was for their message.” And in that newfound directness, Leopold and His Fiction brought a more deliberate sensibility to the making of Darling Destroyer — ultimately creating the band’ s most dynamic work yet. “ It drained every ounce of energy, every bit of inspiration, every dollar — everything I had went into this album,” Daniel says. “ And it all made me realize that if you don’ t give yourself up to art that way, it is obvious. It was a really challenging place to be, but it helped me raise the bar to a level that I didn’ t even know could exist.”

                                    HIGH UP singer Christine Fink moved to Omaha to be closer to her sister, notable singer songwriter Orenda Fink (Azure Ray, etc.) back in 2012. Down South in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, Christine had been known to exercise her theatrical roots at the the local karaoke bars - and to great effect. The first time Orenda saw Christine sing at Sheffield’s Old Town Tavern her jaw dropped as she watched her sister bring the house down. After a few years in Omaha, Orenda noticed that Christine brought the house down no matter where she was singing karaoke- with people of all ages lining up to buy her drinks and even give her requests to sing their favorite soul songs. But Christine was depressed, feeling aimless, shuffling between minimum wage jobs, and the thrill of the weekend performances wore off quickly. One night, the two began to talk about the future, and Orenda insisted that Christine should try and do what makes her happiest- perform for people. After much discussion, they decided to start High up, a collaboration mixing elements of punk and soul that showcased Christine’s powerful vocals and Orenda’s seasoned songwriting. The band draws from a wide variety of influences- from Janis Joplin and Sam Cooke to Dead Kennedys, from Screaming Jay Hawkins to Velvet Underground- and blends the genres to create a frenetic live show and sound that is at once classic and fresh.

                                      Lydia Loveless

                                      Singer-songwriter Lydia Loveless’ highly anticipated new album, Real, was released August 19 via Bloodshot Records. This record follows the release of Somewhere Else, which Rolling Stone praised as “…an aching, lusty set of twang and sneer wrapped in electric guitar swagger,” while Pitchfork furthered “Somewhere Else [is] both a bracing and a deeply harrowing listen.” “Longer,” the first track to be revealed off Real, premiered via Stereogum. Of the song, Stereogum says, “It’s like the Replacements soundtracking the sad aftermath of Big Star’s “Thirteen” — which is to say, it’s awesome.”

                                      Real was recorded at Sonic Lounge Studios in her home state of Ohio and was engineered and produced by Joe Viers (Dr. John, Twenty One Pilots). “I chose to work with Joe Viers, engineer and producer of my last three releases, again because I trust him completely not only with my music but with my words,” said Loveless. “There was a lot to say this time around and I wanted to return to that sort of playground and (sometimes literally) throw things at the wall. Whereas our previous records could be described as blunt or raw, this one I wanted to be known as honest, as true, as real (rimshot),” she adds.

                                      Of the album Loveless says:

                                      "We refer only to things fully formed and everlasting as 'real'. If a marriage ends it was 'fake' and everything was a 'lie.' We ask if quickly made up tunes are 'real songs'. The veil of depression causes to wonder if we're real people, feeling discarded, sitting at the kid's table. Am I real even if I stayed in bed all day? Is love real even when it's over or goes entirely unfulfilled? Are we real after we die, even if no one remembers us? Or is anything temporary merely a fake, a phony, a stand in. I was thinking about this a lot when I was writing these songs. What makes someone, even someone lacking the confident to show their true selves a 'real' authentic person.

                                      When I strip away my vices who am I really? Am I only myself when I'm dancing on a table and making the most vulgar of wisecracks, even though I hate that person, it gets a rise out of myself. The party monkey side. But the side with any amount of grace is often met with concern or disdain. Who are you really, at the end of the day, entirely alone, without all the daydreams and the bullshit and the performance art we go through all day every day, even non performers or as we call them, 'normal' people. Because I feel like I spent my formative years flopping around like a fish, masking pain with substance abuse and somewhat ashamed of who I was—a hayseed, a phony, I felt—it was absolutely necessary for me to become a stronger, more confident human, or I was going to die. Real is my sort of love letter to that realization, that my existence was just as valid as any other.”

                                      Loveless is joined on the album by Todd May (vocals, guitars, keys), Ben Lamb (bass), Jay Gasper (guitars, pedal steel, keys), George Hondroulis (drums, percussion, keys), Andy Harrison (guitar, keys) and Viers (percussion, guitar).

                                      In 2011, Loveless released her second full-length album, Indestructible Machine, which The Chicago Tribune said, “she conveys toughness, tenderness and humor with off-handed conviction.” Two years after the critical success of her breakout second record, Loveless released Somewhere Else. On Somewhere Else Loveless is less concerned with chasing approval—she scrapped an entire album’s worth of material—and more focused on fighting personal battles of longing, heartbreak and the aesthetic that comes along with them.

                                      Loveless has toured with artists such as Jason Isbell, Iron & Wine, Old 97's, Drive-By Truckers, Scott H. Biram, and the Supersuckers. Her music has been praised by Rolling Stone, NPR, Pitchfork, SPIN, Stereogum, Chicago Tribune, and more. She was the subject of the 2016 documentary Who Is Lydia Loveless?, directed by Gorman Bechard.

                                        Silent Planet

                                        Humanity has always had a therapeutic relationship with music. Its ability to shatter man-made walls, create a platform for expression, and illuminate perspectives, has helped ground some and liberate others. We build national anthems out of songs, we immortalize first dances with songs, we cry because of songs. Music—when breathed into with intention, intellect, and purpose—can restore and unify. If you need an example, listen to Silent Planet’s newest album, Everything Was Sound.

                                        Silent Planet—comprised of Alex Camarena, Thomas Freckleton, Garrett Russell and Mitchell Stark—writes with purpose. The LA-based band’s first album, The Night God Slept, gave voice to characters victimized by systemic oppression. The album used historical settings and the characters within it to magnify their marginalized perspectives, resulting in a musical accomplishment outfitted with quality instrumentals, rich storytelling, and a mouthpiece for the silenced. Their second full-length project bears consistent fruit with their first.

                                        Everything Was Sound, the sophomore release on Solid State Records, is unrelenting in its endeavor to marry its sophisticated metalcore sound with the quiet voice of the alienated. The band’s vocalist, Garret Russell, walks us out of their first album’s story and straight into this one: a metaphorical prison housing society’s misunderstood. The panopticon (both a psychological concept and a physical space) is a many roomed, doorless prison equipped with one, concealed guard. Without the ability to see where the guard is looking, the construct effectively controls each inmates behavior. Russell uses this theory (designed by philosopher and social theorist Jeremy Bentham) to represent the societal imprisonment culture places on the mentally wounded. He walks us through nine rooms, with nine varying prisoners, and tells their stories.

                                        “So many people feel completely alone. This album was inspired by the people I’ve interacted with who feel like nobody can or wants to understand them. It’s very evil to leave people isolated like that,” explains Russell. “Our goal is to make people’s stories visible, to give words and to give music to things that aren't often talked about.” Take the track “Panic Room” for example. “God gave me a vision, in a very mystical way, of my friend who suffers with PTSD. I wanted to tell his story in a way that honored him.” Lyrics like, “this is war: A child stumbles from the wreckage holding his salvation - the trigger to cessation - to end us all. I took a life that takes mine, every quiet moment we collapse,” paint a panicked and painful perspective, but one that gave healing to the friend who inspired it. From the song “Understanding Love Is Lost,” about the wreckage of suicide, to “Nervosa,” about the destruction of eating disorders, Silent Planet intentionally introduces us to the struggling souls surrounding us.

                                        And that isn’t all they’re intentional about. The instrumentals, the lyrics, and the artwork are unanimously designed to, in Russell’s words, “challenge intentions, stir the subconscious, and offend assumptions.” Whether it be the enneagram of personality that marks the cover art, the inkblots within the liner notes tethered to each archetype, or the cited sources laced within each song, you’ll feel what Russell says is a “dance between wholeness and oblivion.” The theme weaves itself—through color, word, sound, and design—into all aspects of the project.

                                        Silent Planet’s pursuit is perhaps best stated by the two instrumental tracks within the album—“Tout comprendre” and “C’est tout pardoner”—whose combined titles mean “to understand all is the forgive all.” In the final song, the prisoners escape bondage and unite, planting a new tree of life in the center of the panopticon. “People have been inhabiting inside of their wounds,” explains Russell, “and I believe they can come together to be healed. Step out, see each other, and find freedom in being seen.”

                                                The Magic Beans are a traveling band from Nederland, CO set out to bring their unique, genre-blending music to the masses and inspire a good time. Their diverse songs move your mind, while tight grooves move your booty when they come to town or through the speakers. Drawing from a wide range of influences, The Magic Beans leave nothing off the table as they combine americana, funk, rock, and electronica into a one sound and sometimes even one composition. Their sound has been described as space funk, ameritronica, and groove grass. The group uses no pre-recorded tracks or samples in favor of a more traditional approach to music: original songwriting, diverse instrumentation, and continually pushing the envelope are what have set this group apart. Seamlessly combining acoustic roots music and traditional instruments with modern technology and electric dance music, The Magic Beans are as unique as their place of origin, the Colorado Rockies.

                                                The Magic Beans have shared the stage with an eclectic group of musicians: ranging from members of String Cheese Incident, Lotus, Leftover Salmon, ALO, The Motet, to acts like Eliot Lipp, Railroad Earth, Kyle Hollingsworth Band, Great American Taxi, Zac Deputy, Elephant Revival, Greensky Bluegrass, Split Lip Rayfield, Juno What, Papadosio, & The Werks just to name a few. They've performed over 200 shows as group across the nation in venues like; Ogden Theater, Boulder Theater, Mishawaka Amphitheater, Bluebird Theater, Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom, Animas Theatre, Belly Up Aspen, the Cabooze, George's Majestic, Parish austin, The Grenada, Gothic Theater, Funky Biscuit, State Bridge Amphitheater, Fox Theater, City Hall, 320South, The Eldo CB, Ghost Ranch Saloon, and many more across the country.

                                                  Govinda is the alter ego of Austin-based producer/composer Shane Madden. He began studying violin and composition at the age of eight and went on to study classical violin at the University of Texas, where he fell in love with electronic music production. It was in Madden’s pursuit of his gypsy roots that he opened his ears to music from around the world. From experiences learning violin from mysterious masters on his journeys across the globe and his passion for modern design and technology, the current sound of Govinda was born.
                                                  Govinda has played with Thievery Corporation, Tipper, Bassnectar, Shpongle, Cheb I Sabbah, STS9 and many more and has been featured on over 25 compilations such as Buddha Bar II, Asian Travels II, and Nirvana Lounge, selling a combined 400,000 copies. Govinda has played at numerous festivals throughout North America including Coachella, Lightning in a Bottle, Sea of Dreams, SXSW and many others. Govinda’s music has been licensed on shows like “Roswell” WB, “Road Rules” MTV, and “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy” Bravo as well as many independent films.
                                                  The Govinda live show is truly a multi-sensory experience that features professional dancers, live projections, resonating vocals and a sonic soundscapes. His live experience is full of vibrant energy that plays to its crowd. Govinda performs on Ableton Live accompanied by classical violin. Govinda is currently touring in support of his latest album “Resonance” which was released independently in September 2012.

                                                  Truckstop Honeymoon’s story begins in New Orleans, where Katie played wash-tub bass and blues piano in the streets of the French Quarter. There she met Mike, who slung a banjo and sold his CDs to tourists as a curative for hangovers and small mindedness. After a court house wedding, they hit the road together. They spent their wedding night in a trucks stop somewhere between Lafayette and the Atchafalaya Swamp. There Truckstop Honeymoon was born.

                                                        The Songs of Joy Division

                                                        The club lights are low. The dance floor is a sweaty blur of shadows. You can feel the blood and adrenaline surging through the crowd. There’s a band on-stage and they are telepathically connected to the audience—making bodies bounce like it was a feat of mind control.

                                                        This is Moving Units and this is their natural element: unadulterated grooves and constant motion. Moving Units have bottled this chemistry since their self-titled 2002 EP debut. When Blake Miller first started writing demos and recruiting band mates to help expand his vision, the idea of fusing dance music and indie rock was practically alien.

                                                        Leading the way along with groups like The Rapture, Franz Ferdinand, The Faint and Bloc Party, Moving Units were at the vanguard of bringing body-rocking grooves to scythe-edged rock and roll. They pioneered a brand of “Dance Punk” that exploded into clubs and radio stations across the globe. “Back then, no one danced at shows in LA. People were trying to play it cool,” Miller says.” We wanted to shake things up and make people boogie.”

                                                        Tastes have changed. Members have joined and left the band. But the locomotion inspired by their music remains immutable. Credit the ease with which Miller has merged into contemporary dance culture.

                                                        A DJ himself, Miller’s remixes with Steve Aoki and Le Castle Vania have earned tons of spins worldwide. “I’ve never abandoned the concept that a live band can turn out a hot dance party,” Miller says. “It’s about conveying that energy and allowing people to have a visceral and euphoric connection.” April 8th 2016 sees the release of the band's 4th LP “Damage With Care”. Miller considers it their most engaging, aggressive and visionary work since the classic "Dangerous Dreams" LP dropped over a decade ago.

                                                        The perfect soundtrack for channeling urgent impulses and anxious adventures on a post punk millennial dance floor. 10 explosive tracks that wind their way up your spine and into your hearts and minds!

                                                        With “Damage With Care”, Miller says he wanted to invoke a naiveté and passion he felt when he wrote the first LP over a decade ago. Fashion always plays a part when it comes to Moving Units and you can feel it in the groves… everything from Alexander Wang, Vivienne Westwood, Warhol, Basquiat and even Patti Smiths “Just Kids” biography found ways to influence the look and feel of Damage With Care. With tracks like “Opposite of Rhyming”, Moving Units plaster their past all over the record, while songs like “Wishful Thinking” and “Fragile Magic” melodically wind their way to the dance floor with hooks you can’t shake. “There is a satisfying balance of raw punk influences from the 70’s and 80’s, as well as sexy bass lines and hi fi production value throughout” says Miller.

                                                        The live show has always been a crucial aspect of what Moving Units is all about. Miller describes how things have evolved live: “This spirit has remained constant over the years, however, our production has continued to evolve considerably. I've begun to utilize playback as a way to enhance the production value of the live show. Drums, bass, guitar and vocals are our most essential instruments. Playback production has enabled us to create an environment in which the crowd is engaging with us as live musicians while key production elements are being triggered in the mix. We're blending the excitement of electronic instrumentation and studio fx with the raw appeal of real instruments.”

                                                        There is a generational experience at Moving Units performances these days and Miller believes dance music and rock and roll resonates with people of all ages. “It's so primitive and organic. I also think kids are attracted to the rebellious attitude and open minded atmosphere our music cultivates. We're having fun riffing on fundamental concepts innovated by our favorite rock and roll, punk and dance music recording artists. And I think our fans respond to that sort of authenticity and humility. I believe music is bigger than the musician. It has a life of its own. And music fans love to share music, so it doesn't surprise me to see new faces at our shows. It's rad!”

                                                        Moving Units have called Los Angeles home and Miller has always had a love hate relationship with the city… “LA has changed radically. The indie music scene was a tiny bubble in 2002. Not a lot of variety and certainly not a lot of
                                                        hype. The exact opposite has occurred here since then. LA has emerged as a new mecca of American youth culture. Music, fashion, cinema and art are all mediums blowing up in this city and influencing the global scene.

                                                        LA is everything you dream a city could be and everything you dread a city can become. LA don't play, so love it or leave it; that's what I say”.

                                                        When talk turns of things to come, all Miller can say is: Blow minds with the new album. Tour constantly, anywhere and everywhere. Celebrate life. Repeat!

                                                              High energy and a good time is the hallmark of these Green Mountain rockers. “Funk-injected rock….a band whose sound brings to mind artists like Rage Against the Machine and Led Zeppelin.” (Donna Walker, Greenville online) The key to the Gangs universal appeal is the infectious sense of fun and showmanship, delivered with a hint of spiritual and political awareness that inspires and encourages positivity.

                                                              The band just recently finished recording a brand new album in Wall, NJ with Steve Jankowski (Blood Sweat and Tears, Chicago), and will be performing the new material exclusively at live shows and festivals over the summer in preparation for its release this fall. Find out when and where the Gang will be near you to be a part of the excitement!
