Bumpin Uglies w/ The Melodramatics @ The Dip Doors 8PM | $10 Tickets | 21+ w/ Valid ID Tickets on sale Friday, Feb. 1st @ 11AM! For nearly a decade now, Bumpin Uglies have been playing their brand of groove-heavy jams – a curiously fun mix of ska, Reggae and good ole’ punk rock – all while putting strong lyrics at the forefront of the music. It’s a formula that quickly took them from local favorites, playing around Annapolis, to a national stage. With a wildly infectious sound, tattoo-worthy lyrics and an itch to take their music to the masses, the band piled into the van years ago and have rarely seen home since. When they aren’t on the road, they’ve been camped in the studio, churning out four full-length albums, two acoustic albums, three EP’s and a Live record. Their latest, 2018’s Beast From The East came out on Space Duck Records and is proof that the band has found their groove. The album consists of a dozen stand-out tracks, any one of which could be considered instant classics for the band. The album also features some big names in the East Coast reggae-rock community including Ballyhoo!’s Howi Spangler, the Movement’s Gary Dread, Passafire’s Ted Bowne, Tropidelic’s Derek McBryde, Matthew Roads & Young James, Zach Fowler of Sun Dried Vibes and Oogee Wawa’s Jesse Lee. Buzz magazine raves “Beast From The East IS A CAREFULLY CRAFTED PUNK-REGGAE GEM.” The Bumpin Uglies’ origin story begins with singer/guitarist Brandon Hardesty playing open mics around Maryland. He met bassist Dave Wolf not too long after and Bumpin Uglies was born. With a proper set of wheels and TJ Haslett on drums, they went off to spread their music across the country like modern day Johnny Appleseeds. The group recently added Chad Wright on keyboards, expanding on their sound. Raised on everything from Bad Religion and The Beach Boys to Sublime and Reel Big Fish, Bumpin Uglies have managed to take inspiration from some of the best out there, run it through their own distinctive filter and end up with a truly original take on the various genres creating an original hybrid. With a unique sound that’s nearly impossible to ignore, the band has gotten everyone from dreadlocked kids to PBR-fueled tattooed punks moving their heads to their music at festivals and on headlining tours across the country.

1730 California St
Redding, CA  96001 Map

Doors 8PM | $12 Adv Tickets | $15 Day of | 21+ w/ Valid ID Rich with bold brass and hypnotic percussion, Polyrhythmics' latest album, Caldera, showcases the instrumental eight-piece's impossibly tight grooves and virtuosic musicianship as they tear through a singular blend of funk, soul, psychedelic rock, R&B, progressive jazz, and Afrobeat. Calling to mind everything from Antibalas and the Dap-Kings to The Meters and Fela Kuti, it's without a doubt their strongest work to date, merging the infectious power of their live show with a sleek and nuanced studio sophistication. Named for the smoldering crater left after a volcanic eruption, Caldera was written during a band retreat to rural Oregon, where Polyrhythmics embraced truly collaborative songwriting for the first time during a marathon session in the shadow of Mt. Hood (itself an active volcano). The resulting album is a blistering declaration from a band that's progressed beyond the sum of its influences to come fully into its own. From the downtempo, Afrobeat trance of "Stargazer" to the triumphantly anthemic, high-octane pump-up funk of "Marshmallow Man," Caldera is instrumental music at its best: emotional, evocative, mesmerizing. On "Cactus Blossoms," Polyrhythmics craft an eerie, retro gem straight out of a 70's film score, while the trippy effects and wah-wah guitar of "Goldie's Road" suggest a psychedelic journey (or perhaps a bad trip), and the shuffling "Vodka For My Goat" draws on Stax soul while hinting at BB King's merger of the blues and jazz. It's an eclectic collection, tied together by the melding of eight distinct musical voices coming together as a cohesive whole. The record follows the Seattle band's stellar third album, Octagon, which earned them tour dates around the country along with plenty of critical acclaim. The Stranger dubbed Polyrhythmics a group to watch, hailing their "sophisticated slinkiness and expressive brassiness," while WNCW praised their "modern afro-psycho-beat blend," and the Seattle Times dubbed them "funk maestros." The band was invited to perform live on influential Seattle NPR station KEXP, shared bills with everyone from Snarky Puppy to Booker T, and played massive festival stages including Bumbershoot, High Sierra, and Vancouver International Jazz Fest. Polyrhythmics are: Ben Bloom: Guitars, Grant Schroff: Drums, Nathan Spicer: Keys. Lalo Bello: Percussion, Karl Olson: Percussion, Jason Gray: Bass, Scott Morning: Trumpet, Elijah Clark: Trombone, Art Brown: Sax and Flute... See MoreSee Less

After the release of 2016's The Big Fit, Veruca Salt's co-frontwomen Louise Post and Nina Gordon reached out and said they wanted to write with the band. What started as a writing session ultimately became 2017’s New Trick EP.

Their album, Bell House, was released August 2018 on Polyvinyl. The album’s title is taken from the band’s beloved headquarters – the old house on Bell Street in Kansas City where they lived together for the better part of 5 years. “‘Lived’ is a loose term,” says Collin. “It was more like a bum den than anything else. There was a giant hole in the floor of the kitchen that had a piece of plywood over it. In the backyard, weeds got like 6 feet high in the summer. It was its own thriving biome. We lived in trash.” Musically, Collin describes the songs on Bell House taking shape through “a group of guys trying to get through some sort of mutual identity crisis. The lifestyle became overwhelming and really seeped into the music.” The band has spent the bulk of the past year on the road in support of the album, touring with Cut Worms, Strfkr, La Luz, Wavves, and Frankie Cosmos, quickly earning a reputation as a spellbinding live band.

The Dip
1730 California St
Redding, CA  96001 Map

Doors 8PM | FREE | 21+ w/ Valid ID TK & The Holy Know-Nothings was borne out of frontman Taylor Kingman’s desire to create a loose, groove-heavy bar band, but never at the expense of good, honest songwriting. To do so, he pulled together his dream lineup, consisting of drummer Tyler Thompson and multi-instrumentalists Jay Cobb Anderson (lead guitar, harmonica), Lewi Longmire (bass, guitar, pedal steel, flugelhorn) and Sydney Nash (keys, bass, slide guitar, cornet). It’s a band of deeply contrasting styles buoyed by a sincere and palpable mutual trust–one that allows them to find and lose the groove with the same ease. They build graceful, spaced-out landscapes around Kingman’s storytelling–his voice ragged and broken one moment and raging the next–only to deconstruct them through a fit of manic and often dissonant rabbit holes. They’ve created irreverent rock and roll where nothing is sacred because everything is sacred. Theirs is a sound lovingly dubbed “psychedelic doom boogie” with a groove that’s tempered and deepened by Kingman’s stubborn devotion to the unglorified truth of things. Izaak Opatz - Opatz is one of a kind, an eccentric singer-songwriter whom you not only connect with, but root for as he tries in vain to sort out his love life in songs he describes as “Nora Ephron Rom-Com-earnestness with a sense of humor.” His latest album Mariachi Static (which takes its title from a lyric in Zevon’s “Carmelita”), produced by Malachi DeLorenzo, is an easygoing listen, driven by Opatz’s sublime way with a lyric. ~Rollingstone.com...

It’s understandable and expected, especially if the thing you loved—making music—was also your job for a long time. Cj Ramone made his name as a member of the greatest punk band of all time, and nearly 25 years after that experience, it’d be understandable if Ramone now spent his days resting on his legacy and tsk-tsking the state of punk rock. But The Holy Spell…, Ramone’s new solo album out May 10 on Fat Wreck Chords, joyfully celebrates his undiminished love of music. It’s right there in the title. “I never lost that magical feeling that you get from music, and that’s where the title came in,” he says. “The bands that I listened to when I was young that I really enjoyed, I can still put that music on now, and it still has the same magic for me.” Full of fist-pumping punk—but not limited to it—The Holy Spell… pays tribute to that magic in a variety of ways. Notably, a pair of sly covers hearken back to Ramone’s childhood: He would hear Dave Edmunds’ “Crawling from the Wreckage” on the portable radio he played in bed at night, and Webb Pierce’s 1953 hit “There Stands the Glass” recalls his parents’ love for classic country Those songs get revitalized here, which is also how Ramone, guitarist Dan Root, multi-instrumentalist Nate Sander, and drummer Pete Sosa, sound on The Holy Spell… With producer Paul Miner (Death By Stereo, New Found Glory, H20, Adolescents) again at the helm, The Holy Spell… is a surprisingly nuanced release from a punk lifer....

RUSH vs YES - An Epic Evening of Progressive Rock featuring Fred Barchetta and Shine Delirious at The Dip in Redding, CA http://rushvsyes.com Doors 8PM | Show 8:30 | $15 Tickets | 21+ w/ Valid ID Advance tickets on sale now! Fred Barchetta / Points North Instrumental progressive rock act Fred Barchetta / Points North has released two albums on the esteemed label Magna Carta Records label (Liquid Tension Experiment, Steve Morse, etc.), and has toured extensively supporting artists ranging from Al di Meola, Eric Johnson, and Allan Holdsworth to Blues Traveler and KingsX. In the rehearsal room, band members Eric Barnett (Guitar Player Magazine’s Guitar Superstar Competition 2008), Uriah Duffy (Whitesnake, Fantastic Negrito, Steve Stevens Band), and drummer Kevin Aiello found themselves constantly launching into the music of one of their mutual seminal influences, that of the iconic progressive rock band Rush. A chance invitation on stage extended to singer Kristina Borja (Circle II Circle featuring Zak Stevens, ex-Savatage, Surface Tension Project) led to dropped jaws and silly smiles, and Fred Barchetta was born. Headlining in its own right across the West Coast, Fred Barchetta has developed a reputation not just for performing the complex music of Rush with accuracy and proficiency but delivering an exciting show experience that pays homage to the renowned live performances of the band whose music they are playing. http://fredbarchetta.com Shine Delirious Bringing the epic, widescreen splendor of classic Yes music to the stage is no easy feat. From the contrapuntal singing to the ripping guitar riffs, to the deconstructionist and forward-thinking rhythms and more, there is a lot to tackle. San Francisco’s Shine Delirious — named for the brilliant bassist Chris Squire and his ‘schindleria’ pseudonym – embraces this challenge with passion, love, and a sense of humor. Originally, these California musicians met to cover the Fragile album in sequence for a music-education fundraiser. They found that they enjoyed the process (and each other’s company) so much that they turned it into a full band. Since that beginning, they have added songs from THE YES ALBUM, CLOSE TO THE EDGE, GOING FOR THE ONE, TORMATO and TIME AND A WORD to expand their sonic palette. The added dimension of having a female lead singer gives a new twist to these songs as well. Shine Delirious delivers an evening of deeply textured, moving, powerful music. Like Yes itself, any Shine Delirious performance is full of wonder, complexity, invention, emotion, and sheer joy. http://shinedelirious.com twitter: @shinedelrious instagram: shinedelirious...

His expanding solo creations are transcendent, healing folk songs. Deep and soulful ballads that paint the imagination with rich and emotional landscapes of love, loss and transformation. Josiah's solo performances highlight a stripped down, emotive, lyrics-and-voice-first kind of song craft, inimitable in its sincerity and beauty, with the powerful joy of singing together.

Together, they’ve done multiple nationwide tours, spreading their music and message everywhere from basements in rural Nebraska to the bedsides of hospice patients to music festivals to the Great American Music Hall. Their live show is a deeply human experience--often filled with both tears of sorrow and tears of laughter, and they have come to be known for their vulnerable presence and storytelling as much as their music....

But with puppets. Written by Josh Gross, directed by Katy Curtis, and with live music performed by Derek Deon and the Vaughns. ------- Something is happening to the cows. They’re found in fields turned all about. Intestines on the out, and outsides in…. After a rash of cattle mutilations hits their small Oregon town, a rancher and his son set off into the woods to find the beast they’re sure is responsible: Bigfoot. Instead they find themselves in the middle of an intergalactic family dispute with potentially deadly consequences! -See the first ever stage musical to tackle the hot topic of anal probing! -See the two-headed beast of the Rogue Valley live and in-person! -See if being good at video games is the same as having your flying saucer pilot’s license! -See the swinging surf rock soundtrack performed by Derek Deon and the Vaughns! -See cows finally strike back! -AND MORE! Cattle Mutilation: the Musical! (or Boner Pills From Outer Space!) was Puppeteers for Fears feature debut, and audiences have been begging for its return since the moment it closed. After three full seasons of ambitious new work and two west coast tours, PFF is finally giving in to the demand and bringing the show back, with a new cast, a more ambitious staging and a bonus song. An expected combination of belly-laughs, heart, and catchy pop hooks you won’t be able to get out of your head, Cattle Mutilation: the Musical! is both a loving homage to campy pulp sci-fi, and something wholly original. This is the puppet rock musical about bigfoot you couldn’t have imagined you needed, because it was too bizarre for anyone besides Puppeteers for Fears to have dreamed up. The show is 90 minutes long with one intermission, and features twelve surf-rock and space-jazz inspired songs written by Josh Gross, and performed by indie-soul darlings, Derek Deon and the Vaughns. It will be performed at various venues throughout Southern Oregon in spring, and then go on a west coast tour during the summer. Cattle Mutilation: The Musical was written and composed by Josh Gross, and directed by Katy Curtis. It stars Reece Bredl, Hunter Prutch, Lauren Taylor, Alex Giorgi, and Forrest Gilpin. Music will be performed by Derek Deon and the Vaughns, who will also perform a brief opening set of their original material in place of recorded house music before the show. The cast soundtrack will be available for purchase at all performances. –--------------... See MoreSee Less
