The Pine Box Boys
-from San Francisco, CA
-The Pine Box Boys are familiar to most as darkgrass darlings, offering songs in the tradition of the murder ballad. The Pine Box Boys released their fifth album, The Feast of Three Arms, last year. The other iterations of the band may be less familiar to audiences. Lonesome Lester T. Raww and His Acquaintances is the name Lester uses for his smaller local gigs in San Francisco, focusing on Tin Pan Alley favorites, as well as some original material. In this format, Lester performs solo or invites a variety of other local musicians to join him as one of his “acquaintances.” Lonesome Lester released an album in 2014, Anarkansas. Lester T. Raww’s Graveside Quartet grew out of numerous requests to record a children’s album. Lester feels as though their album Lester T. Raww’s Graveside Quartet SINGS YOUR CHILDREN TO SLEEP does not accomplish what it was intended to do. This is due to the fact that the album is more likely to produce nightmares in children than warm, fuzzy, Raffi-esque feelings. This is, however, the band that Lester is focusing on the most recently; they will begin recording their second album this fall. Gentleman Jimmy and His Swindling Dwindlers is the latest project. The Boys put this band together to accompany trumpeter Jimmy Hadley as he performs newer material or songs from his previous band, Col. Jimmy and The Blackfish.

Secret Emchy Society 
-from San Francicso, CA
-The Secret Emchy Society plays foot stompin' heart breakin' queer cowboy songs about good friends and hard times. Frontperson Cindy Emch uses her unique & nuanced voice to sing her deeply personal americana music for modern times.

She has previously sung, strummed, and squeezeboxed her way around the country with the bands Vagabondage, Rhubarb Whiskey, Oakland Wine Drinkers Union, and Feral.

The Dik Diks
-from the Bay Area, CA
-The Dik Diks are a four-piece, swampy, "art rock" outfit from the Bay Area, featuring past members of Rube Waddell, Kemo Sabe, Naked Lights, Guy Goode & the Decentones and Extra Action, to name a few.

Although their sound is hard to pin down, they could maybe be described as "If Doo Rag swiped a spoonful of baked beans off of an early-era Melvins plate while they were in the bathroom at one of Crispin Glover's infamous bbq's."

The somewhat unorthodox instrumentation includes: a couple of handmade two-string slide guitars, crafted from a swordfish tusk & a Louisville Slugger, Helicon (tuba), Guitar and Drums.

Each song is titled after a different animal species or creature and sung boisterously from both the first and third "person" point of view.

You might just learn something.

"This may be the first Bay Area Tuba-prominent band since the heyday of Tragic Mulatto?!"
