We are proud to be hosting the Runes of Neptune (formerly GypsyWolf) EP release show.
The band formerly known as GypsyWolf has now transcended into The Runes Of Neptune. Coming from the heart of Washington State, the Runes bring together a unique blend of psychedelic rock, funk, soul, hip-hop, and Improvisational jams complete with original freestyle flow tastefully incorporated into every performance. With a wild groove and the spirit of the Northwest beating in their chests, the Runes take you on a journey through the landscape and lifestyle of Cascadia over a myriad of different musical genres and styles, textures and rhythms. Only experiencing a live show can captivate the true essence of Runes Of Neptune, the most funktastic groove makers this side of the cosmos. The Runes of Neptune Facebook page is: www.facebook.com/RunesofNeptune/
Runes of Neptune will be joined by Caveman Ego, a progressive funk rock outfit from Seattle, Washington. Formed in 2014, the band melds their love of classic rock, funk, and jazz into a unique genre that can only be described as “prehistoric anti-structural cave jams.” You can learn more about them by looking at their Facebook page: www.facebook.com/cavemanego/
The Bubbleators take their name after the iconic bubble-shaped hydraulic passenger elevator presented during the 1962 World's Fair which had the sole purpose of visually offering a different perspective on the world from the inside out though the refraction of light. The four members of the group, The Bubbleators also offer a different perspective in auditory sound through the refraction of culture, emotion and soul. This culmination results in an aggressive slap to the face bearing grooves and melodies you cannot escape. The Bubbleators are Matt Brooks/vocals/guitar, Davy Nefos/drums, Reign King/bass, and Josh Richins/guitar. The Bubbleators Facebook page is: www.facebook.com/The-Bubbleators-260616234303757/

BLACK BONE EXORCISM - www.blackboneexorcism.com -- "The music of Black Bone Exorcism is an experiment in connecting with the mystery, the darkness, and the deep rooted connection between man, nature, and the unknown…something lost in this modern world. With elements of dark paganism and the reflections on the collapse of our modern culture through imagery and intense sound, this Brotherhood is an attempt to provide the bridge to an alternative path to the dark unknown. It is for those who wander and seek more than the world as we see it through modern eyes..."
HOLY GROVE (OR) - holygrove.bandcamp.com -- "Onstage energy is not a problem for locals Holy Grove. Vocalist Andrea Vidal grabs the microphone and steals the crowd’s collective heart with her enthusiasm and total commitment to the moment. With rich, deep tones oozing off the stage and hair flying, the band flays the crowd wide open, exposing their riff-rock-loving guts. Songs like “Huntress” and “Hanged Man” are terrific examples of Holy Grove’s sound, which is a stew of riffs and rhythms that would fit well on a shelf next to some old Man’s Ruin label releases. Vidal seems born to rouse the crowd, and her vocals are belted out in the same fashion, while bassist Gregg and guitarist Trent splash sweat, wah, and fuzz all over the audience. Holy Grove end their set with “Nix”, leaving the growing crowd cheering." -Invisible Oranges-"
OCEANS FADE - www.facebook.com/oceansfade/ An unapologetic eclectic mix of heavy & melodic guitars, driving bass, grooving drums, textured electronics & sultry vocals combined with visual eccentricities.... See MoreSee Less

Artemis Moon - Daughter of Zeus and twin sister to Apollo, she is the Greek personification of empowerment, positive femininity, & free will. The goddess represents the same emboldened spirit as the music of Artemis Moon. The band experiments with bending genres that represent the goddess, resulting in a fusion of folk, classical, & progressive rock. With raging vocals, psychedelic guitar, and a tight rhythm section, this band is quickly going to make you a fan. www.facebook.com/artemismoonmusic/

Heavily influenced by the sounds of Lucero, Against me!, and Alkaline Trio, as well as many other bands/genres blended together to create their sound. Releasing his first 6 song EP "Lost And Lonely With Everything" Layden and the Lion display passion for writing songs that everyone can relate too, whether it be an uptempo feel-good song, to a mid-tempo lyrically dark song, to a laid-back acoustic song about the struggles of day to day life.
