Alek & The Bar Cats

Alek Barkats’s album Slow Train was recorded in his garage in Oakland, under the moniker Wolf Bagel. His music spans many genres, all with theatrical inspiration. A band has recently been put together to bring these home recordings to you live.

The Forgetmenauts

Years from now, history books will remember The Forgetmenauts as pioneers in the culturally iconic futurepunk-folk-sex-dirtcore genre. Hailing from Berkeley, CA, and with strong roots in the East Bay circus, beermaking, and activist communities, their sound has been described using words like "complex" and "slay" and "way better than you sounded a couple weeks ago." Come for the clever band name, stay for the songs about werewolves, vampires, fox brides and devil daughters. And the distortion. Ugh you're gonna love the distortion.

Walker Staples: Guitar, banjo, vocals, definitely not the frontman

Kit Gripp: Mandolin, vocals, harmonic & aesthetic backbone

Emma Williams: Bass, groinmelting grooves

Collin Sullivan: Drums, surprise tempo changes

Abe Finkelstein: Cello, kind eyes
