Murder Murder @ the Handlebar

An empty fuel tank and a flat tire lead two couples down a terror-riddled road to Murder Murder. A cast of twisted individuals with a bloodgrass thirst hailing from the frozen forests of Northern, Ontario. With each slash of a throat or stab through a chest, listen and you can hear Murder Murder behind every gory scene. Watch their lastest video, for their full length album release "From the Stillhouse" on June 25th.  Check out this talented bluegrass, horror ballad bunch @ the Handlebar Wed 6/17 for NXNE.

Hickey Fest 2015! June 19th-21st

We're very excited about this year's Hickey Fest! Local promoter, Ash Reiter has done it again and this year's line up is overflowing with awesome psych and folk artists. A large portion of the line up is local, so we love this fest to the fullest and think you should pack up your camping gear and head out to have a seriously rejuvenating and authentic music experience. We've got all the information here for you!

"It’s back and it’s better than ever!! We All Together Presents Hickey Fest 2015. Hickey Fest is a 3-day independent music festival featuring 25 bands, community campgrounds, psychedelic projections and other relaxing adventures held in Leggett, California in Mendocino County, just 3 hours north of the Bay Area. Named after Standish Hickey State Park, where the South Fork of the Eel River shimmers against a backdrop of majestic redwoods, Hickey Fest takes place over summer solstice weekend: Friday-Sunday, June 19-21 – the 3 longest days of the year and somehow the 3 longest nights. With group camping at Standish Hickey State Park and bands playing across the way at The Peg House, Hickey Fest is a special summer treat. The Peg House features a shaded outdoor stage and patio area, a sandwich shack with vegan options and lots of tasty micro-brews on tap, and a general store for all your last-minute camping and grocery needs. Katie Colver, the Bay Area’s own favorite musical yogi, will offer Showga (yoga accompanied by live music) each morning. Lance Gordon will be lighting up the night with his Mad Alchemy liquid light show and psychedelic projections. Get a taste of what's in store with this fun Hickey Fest Video from Arsenii Vaselenko."
