FLY GOLDEN EAGLE
In their current state, Fly Golden Eagle has been going strong for over 3 years. Ben Trimble has spearheaded the band for over 5, first playing shows with a boombox and a tape behind him, and since evolving into a full-fledged band that has released 3 hook-laden albums and an EP. Richard, Jitch Moans and Odin Comin flesh out the mostly foursome, but sometimes they grow other limbs.
They've traveled the Silk Highway to help in The Resistance of the Propagators of the Pinkest Floss, as well as the nation of Canada, where the people love their music, but the Government does not. Their songs are meant to be titillating, multilateral, and other fun, vintage buzz words. Fly Golden Eagle sincerely tries to find it's place in the cosmos and the sentient beings on earth, but sometimes have a hard time figuring out what that means.
Everyone in Fly Golden Eagle are a part of many other projects, most of which fall under the umbrella of the label they run and self-release everything on: Blacktooth Records, which has 9 releases to date, including records, a book of poetry and a cologne. Fly Golden Eagle is currently touting their latest, psych-funk release, "Swagger", wherever they go and are working on a follow-up record to be released soon. Fresh from the run at Bonnaroo they are at Track 29!
CLEAR PLASTIC MASKS
The members of Clear Plastic Masks, formed in 2011, had been buddies and neighbors for years, relentlessly and enthusiastically supporting each others' artistic endeavors before coalescing into the definite unit they now are. Blessed to be part of an extended family of musicians the band's sound owes much to the collective experience of playing with so many friends. Their debut self titled EP is set for release December 5th with a record release party at Lone Wolf in Bushwick, Brooklyn followed by a New Orleans bound tour with a special stop while in Nashville to record with Mr. Andrija Tokic at The Bomb Shelter. Clear Plastic Masks are... Charlie Garmendia on drums, Eddy DuQuesne bass/keys, Matt Menold guitar/keys and Andrew Katz guitar/keys/vocal.
Banditos are reminiscent of Creedence Clearwater Revival and Johnny Cash if they got into a brawl with the Rolling Stones and Janis Joplin. Mary Beth Richardson, the only lady gracing Banditos on stage,can easily be seen as their secret weapon. As a whole, however, Banditos is a honky tonk, two steppin’ forcefield that the musicindustry needs. Staying away from anything electro, indie, or computerized, Banditos goes back to the roots of rock ‘n roll withtheir roughneck attitudes and raunchy instruments."
Local band Eight Knives are definitely the newest of the 4 acts, but will fit in just nicely, kicking things off at 8pm. By the time July 27th rolls around, this only be the band’s 5th show. So far 8K has opened up for national acts Terry Malts, Ultras S/C and most recently, Those Darlins and Houndmouth
