The Legendary Pink Dots
-from United Kingdom, Netherlands
-The Legendary Pink Dots are a Netherlands-based band formed in August 1980 in the UK who, although distinctly underground, have been musically influential over the years. The band name was derived from pink dots of nail varnish on the piano in their squat, where founding members Edward and April lived. The band has as its focal point vocalist Edward Ka-Spel, who is, along with Phil “The Silverman” Knight, one of the original remaining members of the band. In the mid eighties the band resettled in the Netherlands, where they still reside today. Apart from Edward and Phil, the line-up has gone through many changes. Members such as Ryan Moore, a Canadian bass player, who joined in 1991 after the recordings of the Last Man to Fly with the Tear Garden (he joined as a session musician), went on to form their own labels and musical projects. See Twilight Circus and M Records. Their music is nothing if not original and it is difficult to categorise, but comparisons may be drawn with bands like Pink Floyd and Can.
Their sound has been described as an amalgamation of psychedelic rock, industrial, synth-pop and avant-garde. They have released over 40 records and continuously tour the world.
Members of the band have also collaborated with Nurse With Wound,The Dresden Dolls,Jarboe,HNAS,Jim O’Rourke,Skinny Puppy’s cEvin Key, forming The Tear Garden. Key also appears on the 1994 album 9 Lives to Wonder.

-from Bailey, CO
-Randall Frazier has been performing solo and in various band
incarnations as Orbit Service since the 1990s, releasing no less than
5 brilliant moody albums since 2001. With beginnings in dark psych
rock tempered by contemporary influences from Slint to Palace
Brothers, the Orbit Service sound has increasingly moved outward into
experimental realms. His most recent two albums on Beta-lactam Ring
Records 2011's A Calm Note from the West and last year's Stereo Magic
(Portal In 13 Parts) are steeped in musique concrete, electronic
drone, and inner ear echoes. Randall's haunting voice, however, is
always floating atop the sonic wave machines, and somehow uses
profound alienation to make the music more accessible. His
collaboration with the Legendary Pink Dots called A Star Too Far
released Saucers Over Lincoln another astounding album on BLR in 2015
that remarkably sounds more like Orbit Service than LPD.
The Love Dimension
-from San Francisco, CA
-San Francisco musical collective The Love Dimension steeped itself in the music of the psychedelic era of the '60s then infused it with the sound of ‘90s grunge and other more contemporary influences to create “mind-expanding music” for the 21st century. Resonating with the consciousness expanding goals of the ‘60s psychedelic movement, The Love Dimension “creates sonic architecture for the benefit of all sentient beings across the multi-verse.” A musical vision that reflects the personal journey of band founder Jimmy L. Dias who was on the path to becoming a shamanic healer when his own experiences of healing called him back to music. In 2008, while continuing his training as a healer, Jimmy set out to find the right players for The Love Dimension.
In January 2009, Jimmy played a solo acoustic show as The Love Dimension at a dive bar in San Francisco. Local club gigs followed with a rotating line-up supporting Jimmy (guitar/vocals), Celeste Obomsawin (vocals/percussion/flute) and Raphael Wayman Davis (bass). During its first two years, the band recorded its first album, In Between Lives (2011) and several EPs and singles. Then tragedy struck with the untimely death of bass player Raphael. The next few years saw several different band lineups and the release of several recordings including albums Forget the Remember (2012) and Create and Consume (2014).
The Love Dimension’s core lineup is Jimmy L. Dias (vocals/guitar), Celeste Obomsawin (vocals/percussion/flute), Amy Jane Cronkleton (vocals), Robinson Kuntz (drums), Michael Summers (bass) and Devin Farney (keyboards/vocals). The band has featured many other talented musicians such as Jacob Landry (guitar), Jeremy Walker (guitar), Joe Miller (drums), Kevin Grapski (bass), Ryan Erickson (bass/vocals), Eric Amerman (guitar/keys/drums), Ryan Scott Long (drums), Sonny Pearce (drums), Tommy Anderson (bass), Kyle DeMartini (guitar), and Sean Carney (guitar) just to name a few.
Playing bigger shows at better venues, making festival appearances (including Desert Stars, Whole Earth, Haight Ashbury Street Fair, Gathering of the Tribes), getting radio play, the release in 2016 of the EP, Freakquency Space Mind Continuum, the release in 2017 of the EP, Acceptance, and the release in 2018 of their fourth studio album, Dream Decibels, The Love Dimension is poised to make a move.
The Love Dimension plays in multiple configurations—from solo acoustic sets to 11-piece expanded lineups—depending on the needs of the venue and the occasion. Whatever the configuration, The Love Dimension will deliver a performance that will elevate the spirit and move the soul.
