If anyone is wondering what the next "basement gem" to come out of Minnesota's underbelly is going to sound like, they should probably talk to Berndt Evenson, the guitar-weilding gent responsible for Alluvion.
The Alluvion concert experience features live midi tweaking, guitar & analogue ribbon improvisation, and heavily effect driven layered vocals.
The Blue Hour
The Blue Hour (formerly The Dawn) was created in the Summer of 1993 as the solo project of Brian Hodges, later a member of Black Atmosphere. Since that Summer, the Blue Hour has played numerous live shows, supporting the likes of Sol Invictus, Gitane Demone, Switchblade Symphony, In Gowan Ring, and the Wake.
A Heart in the Stillness
Seattle native Isaac Aubrey channels diverse influences such as Nick Drake, early Cure and neofolk, but filters them through an outlook and spirit entirely his own . Armed with little more than voice, acoustic guitar, dreamy synth and sparse percussion, Aubrey pens evocative, dark folk songs to fight through the difficulties of life instead of wallowing. His weathered voice and observant lyrics achieve contemplation without narcissism and depth without pretension.
Trapdoor Social
Trapdoor Social is entering 2017 with a new sense of urgency. After reconstituting itself from a duo to a 5-piece, their eponymous debut album is a raucous, anthemic environmental and social critique, erupting with signature blues rock and bass synth riffs. The new set is an impassioned call to action.
Excited to continue combining their music with activism as they’ve done with past fundraising projects involving Homeboy Industries, Mesa Ridge High School, and Kids Cancer Connection, Trapdoor Social will be touring in 2017 in their solar paneled trailer, putting on clean energy solar-powered concerts at universities and outdoor venues across the country.
2017 will also bring the second annual Sunstock Solar Festival, a 100% solar-powered arts and music festival in Los Angeles, founded by Trapdoor Social, with all proceeds going to charity.
