    PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
    Ruby the Hatchet is gracing us with their heavy psych glory... Let's rip it.  Lineup updates coming real soon.

    RUBY THE HATCHET
    Website | Bandcamp | Facebook | Instagram
    With "Fear Is a Cruel Master", RUBY THE HATCHET deliver exactly the brain-frying, catchy yet full of raw energy thriller-album that the American trailblazers acclaimed predecessor "Planetary Space Child" (2017) promised it to be. Five long years have passed since the New Jersey psych-rock squad dropped their last album, but the wait is finally over. RUBY THE HATCHET have reached a new peak of writing music as a collective that was hard won through sacrifices and an iron will to get better and to reach a new level each time. The album title, "Fear Is a Cruel Master", duly epitomizes the mood of the lockdown period in which it was written. Accustomed to working together as a group, singer Jillian Taylor, guitarist Johnny Scarps, drummer Owen Stewart, bassist Lake Muir, and organist Sean Hur were forced to spend more time apart than they normally would. "I read a lot during the pandemic, when I came across the phrase 'fear is a cruel master', Taylor explains. “At the time, you could see the fear and how it was holding people back. The title resonates with being in the music community, because it was shaky for everyone – from bands to booking agents to venues. Fear was in the air.” Recorded at New Future in Jersey with Paul Ritchie from THE PARLOR MOB, "Fear Is a Cruel Master" wasn't as meticulously mapped out as RUBY's previous albums. The band purposely left space for spontaneity and magic moments. Ultimately, the main theme of "Fear Is a Cruel Master" is self-reflection. Although these songs were forged in the crucible of world-stopping pestilence, they come with a timeless quality that transcends the moment of their creation. Everything that makes RUBY THE HATCHET such an outstanding and wildly loved act even among their peers is there – ranging from those sultry, honey-smoked vocals, via lush yet crisp guitars, to the spirit of rock 'n roll organ heroics. "Fear Is a Cruel Master" is definitely an album written after a decade of being in a band and looking back without regret at all the things done or not done. It is a testimony to that journey, as we now embark to follow the band's equally impressive and massive sonic wake.

     

    CRYSTAL SPIDERS
    BandcampInstagram
    Dripping with fuzzed out guitars, soaring vocals, and swaggering groove, North Carolina duo Crystal Spiders’ debut album Molt (2020) quickly won the hearts of stoner metal fans and critics alike. For their follow up, MORIERIS, bassist Brenna Leath (Lightning Born, The Hell No) and drummer Tradd Yancey (Doomsday Profit) take a lead guitar assist from Mike Dean — Corrosion of Conformity bassist and Leath’s bandmate in fellow Ripple Music labelmates Lightning Born — for a rollercoaster ride of doomy atmospherics, razor sharp riffs, and infectious rhythms.

    Adventure Metal since 2005. Twin guitar leads like an eagle screeching through space, fantasy inspired lyrics from the dustiest old book collection, and the raw power of metal to make you grin with pleasure as you pour beer on your own head, this is Mega Colossus!

    TOOTH
    Bandcamp | Facebook 
    "Rock ‘n’ roll all the time fits Tooth. Their metal breathes divergent influences, epitomized by [J-Me] Guptill. He’s wearing a Willie Nelson hoodie, but he talks stoner metal, offers analysis of his lyrics (about animals and gods), and boasts of a concept song that’s in the works. A fantasy about a dragon doing battle, the rest of the band hates it. Guptill just laughs." - INDY WEEK

    Nathaniel Rappole’s solo project, GULL, was conceived on an endangered wildlife preserve in Front Royal, VA in 1999, and has been publicly active since 2007.

     

    Gull is “best described as a drum; a living, breathing drum of flesh on fire that cries out assorted tongues of creatures past and delivers it from a single unique perspective; a communal music broadcast of blood and bile left as an offering on the altar of sound.” With the release of Relative Stranger, there are odes to dreams, to Patti Smith, to a well-traveled car, to a friend and bandmate lost

    $20 adv / $25 day-of



    Shady’s back, ya’ll!


    We’re taking our original show, Cthulhu: the Musical!, on the road on our “Road to R'Lyeh” 2024 summer tour.  For the uninitiated, here’s our deal: PFF is Oregon’s only dedicated puppet musical horror troupe. We perform original scripts with original music. Far from the lo-fi puppet show stereotype, our productions feature elaborate custom-built hand-and-rod (Muppet-style) puppets, a full-rock band, multimedia scenic art projections, and a full cast of performers––each a Swiss army knife of talent unto themselves, slaying as actors, puppeteers, singers, improv comics, and world class Twister athletes (srsly, it gets crazy behind the puppet house).


    The play is adapted from the 1929 short story, The Call of Cthulhu,” by horror icon, H.P. Lovecraft, and tells the story of his most famous creation: Cthulhu, a giant, malevolent, octopus-faced elder god who hibernates beneath the ocean, communicating to humans through their dreams, slowly driving them mad. While Lovecraft is not as much of a household name as writers like Stephen King or Edgar Allen Poe, he is widely considered to be the creator of the genre of gothic horror, and the creatures and themes he created are highly influential on modern literature of all genres. The story we chose to adapt is dark, disturbing, and totally unfit for musical comedy—all qualities that make it a perfect fit for our style.
