About Bridge City Sinners

Bridge City Sinners

From the misty, pine-covered hills of the Pacific Northwest hail the Bridge City Sinners, who span the continuum from prohibition-era jazz to Appalachian death folk. This traditional string band lineup bends the meaning of the word genre, playing festivals from Punk Rock Bowling, to Muddy Roots, to Oregon's Bluegrass String Summit. They started their journey by busking on sidewalks across the country and now this supergroup of musicians find themselves on the national tour circuit. The Sinners still hold true to the DIY mentality of putting albums out on a self-made record label, Flail Records. With talented musicianship and a punk as f***! live show, this is one band you don't want to miss.

About Kultur Shock

Kultur Shock

Escaping war torn Sarajevo in 1995. Srdjan Gino Yevdjevich brought two things along with him to Seattle, his immense vocal and songwriting talent and his relentless ambition to create. Little did he know that after starting Kultur Shock in 1996, he would not only become the beating heart of one of the most influential genre-bending bands of the last couple of decades but also the de-facto grand father of a movement that people casually refer today as Gypsy Punk. For 25 years, Kultur Shock have embarked on a never-ending path of experimentation, mixing Balkan folk melodies and bizarre meters with face-melting metal and blood pumping punk rock, concurrently lyrical, obnoxious, political, irreverent all while respecting every influence they've had. Ro describe Kultur Shock's style and sound, people usualy refer to @System of a down, @Dubioza Kolektiv, @Manu Chao, @The Pogues, or @Gang of Four. Unfortunately, none of that does the band justice because Kultur Shock's sound and approach to music is literally in a league of its own. The band realeased its first three studio records with @Faith no more's Bill Gould on his KoolArrow records between 2001 and 2006. Since 2007, Kultur Shock has been self-produced and self-released on its label and has put out four LPs, one EP and three live albums. 2021 marks the 25th year of the band and they've started the next chapter by signing with Jello Biafra's @Alternative Tentacles label. The band is working on their new album as we speak.

About Pete Bernhard (of The Devil Makes Three)

Pete Bernhard (of The Devil Makes Three)

Best known as the singer and primary songwriter for the band The Devil Makes Three, Pete Bernhard has been touring the US, Canada, and Europe for nearly 18 years. He hails from a small community in southern Vermont and a family of musicians and artists. His father was a singer and songwriter, his brother attended the Berklee School of Music, and his aunt was a local folk musician. Immersed in music at a young age, Pete was drawn to traditional fingerpicking blues and early folk music.

In 2001, Pete headed to Washington State, where he formed a duo with a childhood friend Cooper McBean and began touring the west coast. When their car broke down in Santa Cruz, California, they stayed with a fellow Vermonter, Lucia Turino, attending the University of Santa Cruz. Soon after, the band- The Devil Makes Three was born. Pete Bernhard has three solo records released on his record label Kahn Records.
