LIVE PERFORMANCE
Michael E. Kupietz, King Of The Bedroom Blues Guitar, performs imaginative stylings of traditionals and classics drawn from his eclectic breadth of popular music knowledge on a variety of guitar-shaped instruments. Together with Bronson McKinley, the human under my kitchen sink, now out of hiding, they are collectively known as Donny, Jordan, and James, the members of the Troubadours Of Montmartre, who perform high-seas song and drama under the guise of classic radio-age serial greats Captain Blackheart And The Scurvy Sea Dogs.

LIVE PERFORMANCE
For me music is a way of resisting the tide that urges towards blind consumption not just of things but of ideas and lifestyles meant to imprison us in complacency. in creativity/creation we find the antidote to war, to genocide, to injustice, intolerance. we find ways to empathize with our enemies, and to gently criticize our lovers. for me it is how I explain to myself all that is unexplainable. it is my direct line to the divine.

The Dry Spells

9:20pm
The Dry Spells, a San Francisco-based female-led ensemble, create a unique sound drawing from traditional folk ballads of lost loves, unimaginable sorrows, and nostalgia for a forgotten past, charged with an array of electric and acoustic instrumentation and intricate vocal harmonies. On their debut album, Too Soon for Flowers, the Dry Spells prove they are as gifted at songwriting as they are at interpretation, presenting a song cycle that invites listeners to join them as they traverse an arboreal path less taken, to an uncertain yet revered destination. Along the way, there will be epic songs of deep-sea weddings, sirens, and gold rush tragedies, each illuminating a bit more of the path ahead and offering another piece to the puzzle.

LIVE PERFORMANCE
The current incarnation of il gato may best be described as indie-baroque-folk. Utilizing the repetition of the loop pedal and a broad pallette of instrumentation (acoustic guitar, trumpet, violin, harmonica, melodica, banjo, drums) in the hopes of creating a sense of awe, or, moreso, to create beauty and then to destroy it only to see it live once again.

“The sonic equivalent of a slow motion shot of landscape through a car window. Delicate keyboards, fuzzed out guitars and drowsy vocals create a floating space rock sound that stretches time, and dissipates it into tiny particles…” – SF Bay Guardian

Raised By Robots is an indie rock band from San Francisco/Oakland that suckles lovingly on the teat of multitudinous influences – among them early 90s indie, soul, post punk, country, and hip hop – and ameliorates that disparate mash into a sonic reformation that Zeus would be proud of. This band also believes strongly in an energetic & charismatic live show, which it has brought to fans all over the bay

Bay Area Derby Girls

8:40pm
The B.A.D. Girls were founded in August of 2004 by a couple of girls with delusions of grandeur after one too many late-night cocktails. Inspired by dozens of burgeoning neo-derby leagues in cities like Austin, Phoenix, Seattle, Los Angeles and New York, these ladies decided the Bay Area had to be next on the roster.

Currently, the B.A.D. Girls have 70+ full-time league members and continue to grow by the season. As members of the national Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA), a skater-run organization of flat-track female derby leagues, they have participated as a Division 2 league in multiple tournaments and intra-league bouts, placing fourth in the West, and sixth in the nation.

LIVE PERFORMANCE
Hailing from Portland, Maine, Zach Jones is an artist of exceptional musical talent.  Having toured tirelessly as lead guitarist for the band As Fast As, and having performed over 2,000 times for captive audiences, you might expect an ego to accompany such an accomplished musician. Yet there is an effortlessness to his manner that pervades his song writing and speaks to experience through his music.
