Often described as the Old Crow Medicine show meets the Ramones, The Rusty Cleavers‘ live shows have always been fist-pumping barn burners. Audiences can’t help but cut loose as they pummel their string instruments with rhythmic abandon, layering husky harmonies over top that swell to bursting. It seems only natural to combine the worlds of bluegrass and punk, and The Rusty Cleavers do so magnificently, with all manner of mandolin, banjo and backyard clatter coming together in a cacophony of spirited group-singing and hoops and hollers.
Shotgun Kitchen Authentic Americana music from the urban fringe of The Great North West. Inspired by the music we’ve been playing around the kitchen table since we were kids, Shotgun Kitchen is a group of close friends who still write and play kitchen music, kitchen music that can blow your face off.
Stoned Evergreen Travelers hail from the Pacific Northwest, turning bar rooms and club stages everywhere they play into boot stompin’, hootin’ hollerin’, get down and get dirty if you wanna party parties that put hands together, smiles on faces, and fists in the air. Their unique brand of hellbilly metal combines elements of outlaw country and honky tonk with those of stoner rock, heavy metal, gypsy punk, and thrash… you could describe it as sounding something like Hank Williams meets early Metallica.
