Runes of Neptune EP Release with Caveman Ego and The Bubbleators

Thursday March 8th - 8:00pm - Thursday March 8th - 11:59pm

Runes of Neptune EP Release with Caveman Ego and The Bubbleators

Substation
645 NW 45th St
Seattle, WA  98107

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/

Don't miss out on this opportunity to see this eclectic mix of cosmic, caveman and just plain weird!

Presale tickets are only $8, available through Brown Paper Tickets.

Black Bone Exorcism, Holy Grove(OR), Into The Storm, Oceans Fade

Friday March 16th - 9:00pm - Saturday March 17th - 2:00am

Black Bone Exorcism, Holy Grove(OR), Into The Storm, Oceans Fade

Substation
645 NW 45th St
Seattle, WA  98107

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."

Sun Mother/Artemis Moon/Layden & the Lion at Substation

Thursday March 29th - 8:00pm - Friday March 30th - 2:00am

Sun Mother/Artemis Moon/Layden & the Lion at Substation

Substation
645 NW 45th St
Seattle, WA  98107

The perfect bill to soothe and rock your soul on a Thursday night in Fremont!

Sun Mother -
A staple act in the Seattle area since early 2017, this group just keeps getting better and better. Who knew a 3-piece could get such SOUND! If you're into grunge and funk with an edge, you'll be on the edge of your seat (or up on your feet!) with Sun Mother
www.facebook.com/sunmotherseattle/

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/

Layden & the Lion -
Add gritty vocals, true-life lyricism, catchy riffs, and a solid live band and you get Layden and the Lion. Based out of South Louisiana and Florida this man is sure to impress the listening audience both musically and visually. 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. Layden and the Lion is not trying to reinvent the wheel..... they're just keeping the wheel rolling.

The High Council with OSO and Caveman Ego

The High Council with OSO and Caveman Ego

Checkered Hat - Shows and Concerts In Seattle

On Friday, March 18th, Substation will be hosting a higher consciousness, jam band night featuring four sets of music by three of the Pacific Northwest’s most mind melting acts.

The High Council will be playing two full sets. From the heart of the Evergreen State, The High Council explores the boundaries of melody and groove. With a blend of transcendent improvisation and earthy rock sensibilities, THC draws on elements of jazz, reggae, rock and psychedelia. The High Council members are lead guitarist Zeke Wakefield, rhythm guitarist Ryan Phillapart, bass guitarist Reign King, keyboardist Zack Olson, drummer JoJo Mascorella and percussionist Jeff Pang. Their Facebook page is:
www.facebook.com/thehighcouncilband/

They will be joined by OSO. OSO was formed in Bellingham, Wa in 2014 and have developed a unique sound through improvisation, experimentation, and song writing. Primarily focusing on “the space between” OSO fuses jam, funk, rock, folk, trance, and disco sounds for a truly creative sonic journey into the mind. After gaining traction in their hometown of Bellingham, OSO began making festival appearances and performing shows abroad. We are excited to have them on this bill. You can check out their music on their Facebook page: www.facebook.com/Onsideoff/

Playing support will be 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:
