    When HOT MULLIGAN took to social media to declare themselves #1 Hot New Band, it would have been easy to write off the terminally online emo quartet’s proclamation as yet another irreverent entry into their bag of tricks. But it turns out Hot Mulligan have a way of manifesting things into existence, whether it’s name-dropping Michelle Branch and Mark Hoppus in song titles and netting responses from both (only one got the joke) or, true to their word, becoming synonymous with the newest waves of pop-punk and emo–err,post-emo, the genre Hot Mully have claimed responsibility for inventing. (Go ahead and fact-check it; they’ll wait.)Since forming in Lansing, Michigan, in 2014, the college friends–vocalist Tades Sanville, guitarists Chris Freeman and Ryan Malicsi and drummer Brandon Blakeley–have ascended from basements to buzz band on the back of two beloved albums, 2018’s Pilotand 2020’s you’ll be fine.Now, bolstered by 140 million Spotify streams, a sold-out nationwide headlining tour, support slots for the likes of The Wonder Years andNew Found Glory and headlines in Alternative Press and Rock Sound, the band’s thirdLP,WHY WOULD I WATCH(Wax Bodega),cements their evolution as one the most versatile and profoundly moving bands in the underground.

    A lot has happened this year that we never thought would come to fruition and ever happen again.

    Forbidden is back and with a vengeance. We are so excited for what is coming in the future, and today we are even more excited to announce this very special event. 

    Omega fest 2024 will happen next May 4th in Berkeley, California at The UC Theatre.

    We wanted to create a festival that we can repeat year after year, bringing some of our favorite bands, and some of our inspirations to create a day and night of amazing music. This year, the inaugural year we welcome the legendary BioHazard, to headline with us! EXCITER from Canada, who we tip the hat many times over for their inspiration and groundbreaking thrash metal from Canada that helped to begin the whole genre.

    We also are welcoming to the stage, some of our favorite, newer bands, and artists that we cannot wait to see the crowd go mental over. This is going to be the hottest ticket next year for music in the Bay Area and we hope that people from all over the world will fly in for this incredible day.

    Long-running cinematic rock band Caspian don’t want you to call their fifth album a “redemption,” a “comeback,” a “rise from the ashes,” or any of the other sentiments that emerge when bands return from nearly five years of silence.

    Instead, this majestic collision of post-rock, metal, shoegaze, electronics, noise, minimalism and ambient music is an existential meditation, an acceptance of the cyclical nature of both life and career. Recorded at Studio 4 in Conshohocken, PA, by producer Will Yip (Code Orange, Defeater, Quicksand, Turnstile), On Circles marks the most organic writing and recording sessions in Caspian’s 15-year history

    And So I Watch You From Afar released The Endless Shimmering on the 20 October 2017 on Los Angeles based record label Sargent House home of fellow noiseniks Deafheaven, Chelsea Wolfe and Russian Circles. The band left home to spend the Autumn and Winter in Europe, UK and Ireland playing their biggest headline tour to date drenching sold out audiences with their most thunderous collection of songs to date.

    General Admission Standing Room with Limited Seating

    Tuareg nomads and cowboy drifters. Camel trains and mustang horses. The timeless horizon of the endless Sahara and the wild frontier of the Old West-and when the day is done, guitars around the campfire, singing songs of loss and longing and ‘home on the range’.Several thousand miles of ocean may divide the desert blues of Tinariwen and the authentic country music of rural America butthe links are as palpable as they are romantic. 

    On Amatssou, their ninth studio album, Tinariwen set out to explore these shared sensibilities as banjos, fiddles and pedalsteel mix seamlessly with the Tuareg band’s trademark snaking guitar lines and hypnotic grooves.

    $40.00 - $410.00
