Stoked to have Hillstomp back!
Hillstomp sounds like a boombox blasting from a shopping cart. A couple madmen have stocked the cart with car parts, buckets and guitars, a banjo and megaphone, a washboard and kick drum. They are hurtling towards a blown out bridge while the front wheel flaps and the bystanders dance manically.

Bombargo drops a vibrant splash of soul on their funky indie vibes with layers of rock and R&B infused throughout. The band brings unrivaled energy to the stage with sing-along anthems, magical harmonies, and a powerful message that combined make for one of the most passionate live shows ever! Even Virgin Records founder Sir Richard Branson was impressed, quoting: “I haven’t seen
this type of energy since The Rolling Stones!”
The band’s pop single “Oxygen” saw immense radio success in the summer of 2019, charting on Canada’s Top 50 Hot AC stations.
Taylor Swift also has a soft spot for Bombargo, adding their single “Mr. No Good” to her Spotify playlist ‘Songs Taylor Loves’ alongside Ed Sheeran, Camilla Cabello, and Kendrick Lamar. Being part of this star-studded playlist saw Bombargo featured on CBC’s the Q, NME, Exclaim, Fashion, Noisey, People, Billboard and more – leading to their follow up single “All the Same” which reached #1 on Spotify’s Indie All-Star playlist.
From headlining festivals to opening for legendary acts like John Butler Trio, Michael Franti & Spearhead, The Dead South, and Joel Plaskett; Bombargo has rapidly made a name for themselves globally with their life-changing live performances, captivating music, and The GoodTime Guarantee. Just ask lead singer Nathan Thoen – “A lot of bands try to promise you a good time, but we actually guarantee it.”
The Canadian-based band will be heading to the United States for the first time in Fall 2019 for a tour through the Western region of the country. Bombargo is currently writing and recording their second full-length record while shooting an autobiographical film set to coincide with the release.

The Native Howl writes, records, and performs a wide variety of genres and styles of music, the most notable of which being their newly-coined "Thrash Grass," the combination of the intensity and aggression of thrash metal with the melodicism and precision of bluegrass.
Taking a stand against the seemingly unscrupulous status-quo of the music industry, The Howl created their own label Clean as Dirt Records and recording facility C.A.D. Studios through which they release their music and media independently, thereby steering clear of non-creative adulterants.
Their acclaimed 2016 E.P. "Thrash Grass" was followed by a double-length album "Out of the Garden and Into the Darkness," peaking at #3 on the U.S. Bluegrass Billboard Charts.... See MoreSee Less

Whiskerman is a rock-and-roll overture to the great unraveling. Over the last 7 years the Oakland band has developed an underground reputation for tackling the sublime with their ambitious songwriting, thunderous stage show, and acute lyricism. They have since emerged as an engine of the Bay Area’s revitalized psychedelic and festival scenes. Frontman Graham Patzner, who will crow like a medicine show preacher, and then coo you into the arms of his lovesick eternity, might be a spitfire protege of the underworld himself, though, through and through he will remind you that there is no rapture without artistry. On the surface this is splendid rock-and-roll, rooted in the classic, psych and glam rock tradition, but the pageantry and chaos of Whiskerman’s performances will leave you describing an experience more than a sound.

The Funky Knuckles is a world-class jazz orchestra made up of genetically-enhanced cybernetic supermen. Their mind-blowing rhythms and harmonic complexity will shatter your fragile psyche and leave you drowning in a pool of fresh llama milk. The band members are as brilliant as they are handsome and have been featured as sidemen with Janet Jackson, Stanley Clarke, Larry Carlton, and many others. Recent albums have topped the iTunes Jazz charts, and they will be spawning their 4th album in November 2019. The Oracle has foretold that this album will revolutionize the sport of music for generations to come. This unstoppable crime-fighting squadron will make you dance like a kraken on meth before you burst into tears of joy which can be combined with powder from a ground-up cobra skull to synthesize the elixir that allows you to pass through solid objects.
The Funky Knuckles belong to a new generation of improvising musicians, challenging the constraints of genre, but never losing sight of the groove. This is not your typical funk band... or jam band... or jazz band. The Funky Knuckles are something different entirely. This is the improvised music of the new generation, and it is continuously being re-defined, even as it is performed.
In recent years, Texas has gained a reputation as a hotbed for groove-oriented improvised music, and The Funky Knuckles have been a part of that movement for over a decade. It is a common occurrence to hear world-class musicians sitting in at their weekly residency in Dallas, and band members can be seen as sidemen with Janet Jackson, Stanley Clarke, and Larry Carlton.
The Funky Knuckles are releasing their fourth album, “Delicious” in November 2019 on Ropeadope, and will be touring domestically around the release.... See MoreSee Less

Colorado singer-songwriter, Daniel Rodriguez, turns to his acoustic guitar for memorable, melodic hooks to accompany his poetic and contemplative folk songs. Boulder Weekly refers to Rodriguez’s voice as “a timeless folk voice, deep and hearty, weathered but comforting.”
With over a decade under his belt as one of the founding members and lead songwriters of the transcendental folk band, Elephant Revival, Rodriguez is well-versed in the Americana tour circuit. Before going on hiatus, after their third headlining Red Rocks show in May 2018, Elephant Revival had released six albums and performed countless shows and festivals across the nation as well as overseas.
Needing to fill the musical void that might have become following Elephant Revival’s hiatus announcement, Rodriguez immediately headed out on tour as a solo artist. He’s been chosen as main support for bands such as Fruition, Mandolin Orange, Josh Ritter, Birds of Chicago, and John Craigie in addition to being added to numerous festivals like Jam Cruise, and WinterWonderGrass.
Daniel Rodriguez released his debut collection of songs as an EP titled Your Heart The Stars The Milky Way on February 15, 2019.... See MoreSee Less
