Detailed show info is also contained below but if you have any additional questions please email brooke@thecannabisindustry.org. See you all at the show! MUSICAL LINEUP: The Nadis Warriors Birthed in the hills outside of the musical mecca of Austin, Texas there is a movement continuing to emerge. The Nadis Warriors shed the restrictions of commonplace stage shows to a create performance experiences unlike any other in the EDM realm or otherwise. Nadis’ live performances continue to be crafted to entice a positive transfer of energy between all who are present. The intention of the band remains for everyone to leave the gathering feeling recharged, and allow that positivity to be reflected in participants' everyday lives. The Nadis Warriors have appeared at many of the country’s premier festivals/events over the past few years including Electric Forest, Wakarusa, Nocturnal, Electric Daisy Carnival, Camp Bisco, Snow Globe, Sonic Bloom, and the Manifestation Celebration. They have been fortunate enough to share the stage with Alex Grey, Beats Antique, Shpongle, Bassnectar, Lotus, EOTO, Ott and the All Seeing Eye and Papadosio to name just a few. One of the band’s highlights was getting to perform at Alex Grey’s Chapel of Sacred Mirrors. Their music was featured in the soundtrack to THE BLOOM SERIES VOL. 3: WAYS OF THE SACRED PART 2. A film series that “illuminates the cultural renaissance currently blossoming through the phenomenon of transformational festivals that are spreading globally and having profound life-changing effects on hundreds of thousands of lives.” Their newest album “Re:Birth” is the next step in the evolution of the Nadis sound. This eight-track album is a celebration of life, which intends to paint a sonic picture of transformation, while following the amazing life cycle of the Monarch butterfly. WEBSITE: http://www.nadiswarriors.com/ FACEBOOK: https://www.facebook.com/NadisWarriors/info BANDCAMP: http://nadiswarriors.bandcamp.com/ SunSquabi SunSquabi is a 3-piece Electronic Hydro-funk experience, created by guitarist/producer Kevin Donohue, bassist Andrew Clymer and drummer Chris Anderson. They have played all over Colorado and the United States, from Red Rocks Amphitheatre to frequenting festivals such as Sonic Bloom, Wakarusa, Euphoria, Summer Camp and Snowball Music Festival. They are a high-energy group and always deliver great live shows, blending several genres of music into a dance-worthy and progressive set. The addition of live drums and keyboards provides a new element to this musical fusion, supplementing the already stellar funk bass and shredding leads. SunSquabi's intentions are to create an atmosphere of community through a new live-music experience. By incorporating electronic elements and sticking to their musical roots - funk, blues, and progressive rock - SunSquabi is proving to have a unique style and determination to rise above the average.

The itchy-O Marching Band (IOMB) is a Denver-based percussion-centered electronic marching band and the mobile arm of the experimental film/music troupe itchy-O. itchy-O brings a sophisticatedly savage sound and the sheer ecstasy of electronic instruments untethered and running free. With a driving drum corp complemented by an arsenal of special surround sound effects units including synthesizers, theremin, vocoders and several other hand-held electronic devices, the IOMB completely engulfs and immerses an audience from every angle in an electric bog of music, ephemera and spectacle. The unidentifiable IOMB is waging war on predictable mediocrity with their guerrilla-style performances which feature an artfully hazardous Chinese lion, sensuous dancing twin apparitions, fog, strobes, sequins, sweat and fury. WEBSITE: http://itchyo.com/ FACEBOOK: https://www.facebook.com/itchyO Erothyme Erothyme emerged ceremoniously from the aether as an effort by the principle creative forces in the cosmos to grant a sufficiently resplendent musical voice to the current state of the rapturous grace of the elusive all-present Muse. It takes a special kind of soulful jam to bring tears to robot eyes or to resonate with the nuances of extra-terrestrial hearts. Knowing this, in an effort to transcend the digital decadence detection disparities between listeners with differing fundamental metaphysical axioms or celestial origins, respectively, Bobby Blessed calls upon allies from several worlds to assist him in his recording artisan quest and liberally douses his collections of sonorous synthesizer symphonies in multiplicitous melting layers of homebrewed extra-sultry sentimental sweetsauce. Particularly rigorous attention is directed to the mind-matter connection through the use of a highly sophisticated manual melodic manipulation interface known as a keyboard. This technology seamlessly synchronizes electronic and kinesthetic information, ensuring that the resulting stereophonic journey is not only heady enough to elevate the vibes, but also hearty enough to keep you warm all through the long dark night. SOUNDCLOUD: http://soundcloud.com/erothyme BANDCAMP: http://erothyme.bandcamp.com/ FACEBOOK: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Erothyme/94784023304 Bear Antler Mike Cooley once said that rock and roll means well but it can’t help telling young boys lies. The Bear Antler brand of rock and roll is most certainly full of lies but, like a bad lover, it also has a drinking problem, sweats too much, and stays out all night. The lads of Bear Antler know a little something about bad lovers. They sing about cheating women, lying women, no good women… women that call collect to break up with you. But mostly, they sing about the women they can’t live without. There’s also a few murder ballads for good measure. It’s not always pretty, but when the groove is right, the pocket is tight, and the lights are bright, you can bet no one is having a better time than the five guys on stage. What else can you expect from a band that met in a bar?

    Sailor Jerry and Radio 1190 present: THE YEAR OF THE HORSE, with ITCHY-O, Men in Burka, and DJ Dr. Whom!!! Doors: 08:30PM Show: 09:00 PM $13 ADV / $15 DOS + $2 for under 21 tickets All Ages About Itchy-O: Denver-based Itchy-O is a 32-piece, percussion-centered, electronic marching band accompanied by a taiko drumming troupe, dancing apparitions and their cantankerous Chinese lion. Jesus Garcia of SF Weekly described Itchy-O as “progeny of Crash Worship and Savage Republic... a sensory overload, full mind/body immersion, coming together in ecstatic ritual... a 21st century drum circle, where cyborg bulls are slaughtered on the altar of Mystery Science Theater 3000.” With a driving drum corp complemented by an arsenal of special surround sound effects units including synthesizers, theremin, vocoders, and several other hand-held electronic devices, Itchy-O completely engulfs and immerses an audience from every angle in an electric bog of music, ephemera and spectacle. http://itchyo.com/evidence http://itchyo.com/ https://www.facebook.com/itchyO About Men in Burka: Kamran Khan, Strange Powers and Mario Zoots are Men In Burka. An experimental electronic act, Men in Burka blends traditional Middle Eastern aesthetics, rhythm-heavy beats and a melange of samples to create a sound that crosses cultural boundaries and redefines dance music. The band got its start just as Khan's previous project with Mario Zoots and Kristy Fenton, Modern Witch, was becoming less active. Up to that point, Khan, the son of an American woman and a Pakistani man, hadn't had the chance to fully express his own mixed-culture reality. As his involvement with Modern Witch was winding down, he began writing music that was reflective of his background. He shared it with Zoots and Strange Powers, his longtime musical collaborators and fans of Kahn's '90s-era hip-hop crew, Future Reference. The three formed Men in Burka in September 2011. Since their first release, the group has gone on to share stages with Balkan Beat Box, Chelsea Wolfe, SSION, Pictureplane, Tanlines, oOoOO and many others. In 2012, Men in Burka (MIB) played over 30 shows, including the two biggest Denver music festivals (Underground Music Showcase and the Westword Music Showcase) and several shows at SXSW, and self-released a follow up album titled War / Magic. In 2013, MIB played many shows including the Artopia festival, the Underground Music Showcase, and in support of Strange Famous Records artist B. Dolan, and, again, for Balkan Beat Box. http://meninburka.bandcamp.com/ https://www.facebook.com/meninburka About Dr. Whom: Media Collage Pirate “Dr. Whom” is an audio-video mash-up artist from Cleveland, Ohio. Using a combination of sources ranging from Sesame Street to Apocalypse Now and Motorhead to Peggy Lee, Dr. Whom laces together audio-video interval sets that play between featured acts.
