Cascading Elephants // Time is Fire

Cascading Elephants // Time is Fire

Cascading Elephants is the moniker of experimental electronica artist Ben Parker.  The project was formed in Baltimore during the summer of 2012, shortly after Ben parted ways with a local band.  Frustrated with the sonic limitations of a standard rock band (guitar, bass and drums), Ben began experimenting with synthesizers, samplers and unconventional recording methods in an effort to explore his fascination with electronic sound manipulation.

On January 8 2016, after releasing several demo albums over the course of four years, Cascading Elephants self released a proper debut album titled Hectic Matter.  Influenced by the wild, psychedelic and often chaotic music of Animal Collective, Oneohtrix Point Never and Dan Deacon, Hectic Matter possesses a variety of unique sonic qualities.  The album was well received by critics was followed by a regional tour during the spring and summer.


Time is Fire is a band that could only come out of Washington DC. Rooted in DC's post-punk scene but reaching out to embrace rhythms from Africa, the Middle East, Latin America and beyond, the group summons a kaleidoscopic sound that knows no borders-- a blast of radio distortion from a country that doesn't exist.

Fronted by an Iranian-born Sufi poet and backed by players steeped in punk, dance and experimental music, Time is Fire mixes pan-cultural rhythms, floor-shaking funk grooves and acid-laced guitar leads into a mind-expanding geopolitical dance party.

Samuel Powers, The Great Heights Band, & Fable Circuit!

Samuel Powers, The Great Heights Band, & Fable Circuit!

As a throwback to a decade full of their most beloved sitcoms, (where the quintet derived the content for their music) Samuel Powers is a band living in the 90's. The group formed in 2013 to self release their first EP "The Bayside Tigers," a basement-rock soap opera about characters from the TV show Saved by the Bell. 

Shortly after, they went back into the studio to record their newest EP "Empty Halls, Future Friends," a five song coming of age story drawn from the episodes of the heart-wrenching "Boy Meets World."

If reliving moments from your favorite childhood television programs isn't enough, "Sam Pow" brings an emotional and fun live performance that will take you back to your youth.


Hailing from Baltimore, Maryland, The Great Heights Band (TGHB) released their debut full length album entitled "Songs in Eastern Standard Timing" (SIEST) in October 2015 via CI Records after releasing an EP entitled "Weird Thoughts" independently in 2014.

SIEST received rave reviews such stating the record was a "annoyingly catchy... highly polished debut... (with) a solid ear for hooks" (Baltimore City Paper). Other reviewers said, "It’s hard to believe that the Baltimore natives have only been working together for a little over a year as The Great Heights Band truly lives up to its name on the band’s debut full length. Songs In Eastern Standard Timing is a soaring example of fun, funky, and vintage pop melodies, with clear indications that there is nowhere for this band to go but up." (Absolutepunk.net)

Since the release of SIEST, the band has toured around the eastern half of the United States regularly and was awarded the Emerging Artist Award at the 2015 Milwaukee Summerfest (world's largest music festival). TGHB has shared the stage with the likes of Andrew WK, Unwritten Law, New Politics, Never Shout Never, Punchline, Metro Station, Fenix TX, Hellogoodbye, Vacationer and many others. 

The band has begun work on their forthcoming sophomore album due out later this year, recording and producing the album themselves at guitarist/vocalist Eric Taft's studio Buzzlounge Recording in Beltsville, Maryland. TGHB is Neal Karkhanis (guitar/vocals), Eric Taft (guitar/vocals), Owen Brinser (bass) and Paul Martinez (drums).

The Guestlist

The Guestlist is a rock n roll six-piece band hailing from Denver, CO. The Guestlist have been a prominent figure in the Mile High music scene since the release of “No More Nostalgia” in 2015. Coming off a sold out CD release show at the Oriental Theater in Denver, The Guestlist embarked on a tour through the West coast, with stops in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Portland, and Seattle. The Guestlist have shared with the stage with the likes of Fantastic Negrito, Black Pistol Fire, and Paper Bird. The band has been performing on the Denver circuit since, playing at venues that include The Bluebird Theater, Larimer Lounge and yearly appearances at the Underground Music Showcase. The Guestlist have performed on CPR Open Air and Dead Canary Studio.

With 2017 comes the release of their new album,”Racing, Chasing”. The new album was recorded at The Mammoth Cave in Denver and is produced by Mark Anderson of Paper Bird.

"(The Guestlist) has the meditative feel of a Rocky Mountain sunset. Chalk it up to the slow tempos, the haunting rounds of slide guitar or the bluesy lyrical plaints — whatever the source, the record offers a strong sense of high altitudes, late-night campfires and small-town calm." - Westword Magazine

Ginada Pinata taps the influences of jazz, funk, rock, fusion, trance and drum and bass, blending them to create an organic vibe that continually entertains and excites audiences at each and every show. Founded in Shepherdstown, WV in 1998 (and getting funkier all the time) Ginada has relentlessly pushed the musical envelope in search of new sounds and feels. The result is a stylistic collage which truly sets them apart in their genre. 2001 brought the release of “Talking to the Boss,” a recording which at once highlighted the musicianship of the group while serving as the musical template from which they have evolved into one of the area’s most formidable improvisational groups. Over the years Ginada Pinata has played many festivals and clubs including Opera House Live, Sunshine Daydream, 123 Pleasant St., The Barns of Wolftrap, The Velvet Lounge and countless other music venues in the greater Mid-Atlantic region. Their drive is to produce a live show which consistently redraws the boundaries of the traditional quartet – and they’re only getting started.

Crooked Hills/ Fun Boys/ My Friday Anthem

 

Crooked Hills is a hard-charging thunderhorse of a rock band hailing from Frederick MD and the surrounding foothills of the Appalachian mountains.

Crooked Hills is known for their energetic live show and a sound saturated with massive riffs and lyrics inspired by the rich dark history of the area. 

Crooked Hills plays a style of heavy music with elements pulled from metal and hardcore, but also equally infused with classic rock swagger and bluesy southern grooves. A tight and driving rhythm section foundation supports wailing guitar leads and screaming vocals. 

Crooked Hills has played numerous venues in the Maryland and Virginia area since coming together in 2015. Recent line-up additions have enhanced and solidified the granite monolith that is the Crooked Hills sound. 

Crooked Hills released and on-line 3 song EP at the beginning of 2017 and is currently in-studio finishing a full-length to be released later this year. 


Hey! Hey! It's The Fun Boys, Baby! I stole a motorcycle to impress you! We had a cool dance party! Everyone was wearing sunglasses! I broke the roof! Oops!


My Friday Anthem started basically the same way most ideas begin; Two friends, Jonathan and Ryan, writing music together confined in a log cabin in the mountain...s of Frederick, MD. Shortly thereafter, Talia joins as the groups Bassist, as well as, Casey on guitar.
