Their motto: We will see you down at the shore, in your canoe, and give you the push you wont admit you need. "Folk/psychedelic/alt-rock quartet Blisses B have a new LP out, one full of bouncy melodies, undaunted optimism, and dance-inducing rhythms. Entitled Sea Level Astronomy, the band was inspired by the realization of how seemingly limited perspectives, like an observatory placed at sea level, have the potential to achieve great things, like discovering a Jupiter-sized planet. It is this belief in the overlooked power of perspective that drives the positive energy pulsating throughout the record. From the funky eponymous track to the laid back groove of Weapons Grade, Blisses B guarantees that each song on the album will jangle around your brain for days on end. Opener Montevideo is particularly seductive with its charging tom-tom drumbeat, exuberant chorus and killer bass line. Its a style that recalls musical influences as varied as TV On The Radio to Phish to Blitzen Trapper." - The Bay BridgedColaCliff Rawson-VOCALS,GUITAR,SONGS Evan Bautista- DRUMS Matthew Davis-BASS Peter Colclasure-KEYS -from San Jose, CA-We make rock and roll music in the vein of the stones, the velvets (undergrounds), tom petty, the doors. Moonsville CollectiveCorey Adams - vocals/banjo/guitar Matthew McQueen - mandolin Drew Martin - percussion Sean Kibler - fiddle Dan Richardson - slide/dobro/resonator Seth Richardson - upright bass Ryan Welch - vocals/banjo/guitar -from Costa Mesa, CA-Moonsville Collective is an Americana String Band that stands firm in the traditions of Old Time, Folk, Country and Rhythm and Blues. The band formed in August of 2011 and hit the ground running, having played some 250 shows throughout California, Nevada and Utah in the two years following. Their heavy schedule allowed for them to quickly refine their craft and solidify their family mentality, which has been essential to the success of the group. Although half of the band reside in the southern cities of Los Angeles County, the band considers Orange County's Costa Mesa to be its musical birthplace. They are often related to, and spoken of carrying the sensibilities of folk legends Levon Helm (of The Band) and Bob Dylan, the high energy of Old Crow Medicine Show, and clever lyrics like those of Hank Williams and Huddy Ledbelly Ledbetter. This sextet is made up of multi-instrumentalists where behind three part vocal harmonies is a mix of dobro, slide guitar, mandolin, tenor banjo, 5 string banjo, resonator guitar, fiddle, mouth harp, kazoo, and a tight rhythm section of upright bass and loose drums about the stage. The group is committed to being a premier live band, making every performance a high energy, joyful and sincere interaction with listeners, while proficient musical abilities give the band an improvisational nature that it certain to make each show a unique experience, never failing to leave listeners entertained.

HiLLBiLLY ROBOT "Americana Mayhem" Featuring: Blisses B (Record Release Show) + Rin Tin Tiger + BigJugs + Raven Marcus Not exactly traditional. Not exactly Americana. "Americana Mayhem" is a name given to tonight's show- a cluster of indie-pop and alt-rock played on acoustic instruments. It's dance music for people who like good music, and it's the official CD release show for the brand-spankin' new Blisses B record. HiLLBiLLY ROBOT returns for round two! The festival, we mean event, runs every weekend in February and features a variety of urban-flavored Americana; from classic country to alt-country to traditional bluegrass to outlaw bluegrass to raw-n-roll blues to indie-pop with hints of twang. This year's event welcomes the return of "Portland Invasion" (yeah!), and new show "Songs of '69: a Tribute to an Amazing Year in Music", plus popular festival mainstays; Honky-Tonk Showdown, Bluegrass Bonanza, Americana Jukebox, and a CD release show! No matter what your listening pallet may be (city or country) we've got a little something for everyone. So break out your bestest overalls, spit-shine your boots, and head on down to Hillbilly Robot for some good old-fashioned downhome music. BLISSES B (SF) *Official record release show for their brand-spankin' new vinyl LP record* Local band makes good. Good music that is. A music that can't be shoved into one category or one genre. They play a little bit of everything- from psychedelic pop to folk rock to high-energy indie rock. It's music that makes you hum along, jump round and dance your ass off. Watch this: http://youtu.be/zrDklY13UiU https://www.facebook.com/blissesb/ RIN TIN TIGER (SF) Alternative folk rock trio, Rin Tin Tiger, play high energy, lyric heavy, acoustic guitar lead songs about life in contemporary society. The sound is often described as a blend between early Bob Dylan, Violent Femmes, and Tupac. They have shared the stage with The Lumineers, Minus the Bear, Young the Giant, Manchester Orchestra, and many more along the West Coast.

The boys of Big Jugs love a number of other things, too, but due to strict codes of ethics, those things can’t be listed here.

If The Slits morphed with David Bowie and had harmonies like a feminine Simon & Garfunkel, you'd be pretty close to Raven Marcus. Watch this: http://youtu.be/-qq-25tWk-Y http://cowboyglamrock.com/
