The Dirty Snacks Ensemble
The Dirty Snacks Ensemble is an instrumental music ensemble was formed by Oakland based vibraphonist/composer Mark Clifford in early 2011. For the Snacks, Clifford writes music that explores different ways to honor his influences which run the gamut from Kool Keith to Bela Bartok, and tries to find the balance between using long form compositional structures while still giving musical freedom to his immensely talented ensemble.

TFPP is the collaboration of "HipHop" (Wake) and "Plug-in" (DDB), co-directed by Denny Denny Breakfast (Bob LaDue) & Wake (Matt Hettich). Hip hop and Plug-in first met in Pickens, South Carolina as fierce opponents. They were contestants in the local illegal underground magic the gathering tournies. Much later, things lightened up considerably, and eventually, by means of Constructive Discussion technique, they were able to talk through their differences.
DOORS AT 9PM, SHOW AT 9:30PM
