February 16, 2018
The Lucid Furs: Five bereaved souls here to wash your minds with their hard rock, psych and blues concoctions. To hold on to your morality, virtue and chastity DO NOT listen to The Lucid Furs!
BoneHawk plays heavy, fuzz soaked, rock ‘n’ roll music with a mind toward harmony and melody. Can you dig it?
The Hazytones is a group of stoner rock founded in 2015 in Montreal. The trio stuns the audience with his stage presence and intensity. Riff after riff, the group is known for his fat sound and heavy destructive saturation
esme: the seedling of esme was planted around 1999 when michael and charlie met while working together at a popular detroit lunch spot. they soon started playing music together in various outfits ranging stylistically from jazz/bossa nova, funk, improvised music, punk and some theater work. in the mid 2000’s michael’s bliss led him to san francisco where he lived for years honing his music and other artistic skills.
meanwhile, in detroit, charlie maintained a busy schedule of recording his own compositions, touring and playing in numerous bands. one of which, i, crime, is how he met anderson, a skilled writer and veteran of the lansing noise rock scene. in addition to playing in i,crime they formed a side project (one of a few) called TARE which took cues from mayhem, scratch acid and sonic youth.
eventually, micheal moved back to the detroit area and contacted charlie to catch up. he had some new material and wanted to do something heavy, if charlie was inclined to do some jamming. charlie, being the agreeable sort, was down to jam. once they’d gotten together charlie realized he knew just the guy to play bass and sing.
charlie immediately pitched the sapling project to anderson as i,crime had since taken an unofficial hiatus and TARE wasn’t doing much. personality wise, charlie figured michael and anderson would mesh well. when they all finally played together it sounded like a band. like a really good band. a really good, heavy band.
