The Festival of Dead Deer
Before there was Dead Cross, Retox, or Moving Units there was only the Festival of Dead Dear. Michael Crain, Chris Hathwell, and Dylan Gordon. The legendary post punk noise band that burned red hot through the late 90's. Fueled by drugs, cynicism, and incredibly creative rhythms, the band left a cataclysmic impression on their audiences. Within their unfortunately short life span they only got as far as releasing a couple 7 inches, and a full length LP on the infamous 31G Records. This reunion is not to be missed.

Egrets on Ergot
Egrets On Ergot's sound has been described as versatile: from moody, gothy artpunk to funky rhythmic, pseudo-no wave with a smattering of industrial clamor. The four piece live in the Silverlake/Echo Park area of Los Angeles and will debut their fist full length album (vinyl and digital) this October through Cleopatra Records, produced by LA punk veteran Paul Roessler of The Screamers, 45 Grave, Nina Hagen Band.
" Egrets On Ergot, one of the most promising and original acts haunting the LA rock scene..."
- The LA BEAT
"This band’s commitment to the total rockist blitzkrieg aesthetic is a noble thing to hear in this watery pop-ridden age and the now-capacity crowd let go of them with loud reluctance."
- LA Record
"What transpired on stage that evening was a bit of a phenomenon that I am frankly at a loss to effectively describe. "

Seven Sisters of Sleep
"...in peace the sisters reign, and the world is divided between them. When care, or woe, or wan disease, steals for a time the mortal from his allegiance to the calm and blue-eyed Sleep, then do the sisters ply their magic arts to win him back again, and, by their soothing influence, lull him to rest once more, and again unlock the portals of the palace of dreams..."
