Dan Friel
Bromp Treb
The People's Pint in Greenfield MA

Remember when Dan Friel blew your collective asses off a few weeks back at our free show? The man's back in the area this time after multiple leveling ups and coming into possession of a Scimitar of Sonics +5. Hack and slash bloodbath awaits. Needless to say Urthquake, Diagrama and Bromp Treb will perform the necessary healing and magic casting spells to ward off any naysayers.

Loren Halman will be wearing a unicorn costume!

Brava Spectre: Monteville, CT
"Lots of noise and screaming going on, and things being thrown around; sometimes the guy who sings would put down his guitar down, walk around while leading the whole crowd in a chant, and then pick up his guitar and start playing again without skipping a beat."

Heaven People: New Haven, CT
"The deep hum of Moore’s droney electronics counterbalanced Battalene’s use of various stringed instruments. The combo was alchemical, melding moments of high-note crystallization with overwhelming bouts of low, whirring sound. The audience undoubtedly fell under their spell as the duo displayed noise at its most lucid and beautiful."- Performer Magazine


Prince Rama of Ayodhya: Boston, MA
"engaging and often unpredictable live shows reflect their eclectic pool of mysticism; amidst collective chants, werewolf summonings, and Sanskrit invocations, they have been known to distribute hand drums, conch shells, bells, gongs, and other various percussion to members of the audience to create the ultimate communal ritual experience."

Be there or be square
Friday, Oct. 10th at 7:30pm in the EarthFoods Cafe at UMass.
All donations go straight to the bands!
