2016 Live Music Lineup:
- Chuck Prophet & The Mission Express
“…no one can turn tales from the outer limits into catchy songs quite like Prophet does. He’s as original as the characters he brings to life, in all their tawdry, tattered glory.”—NPR Music
- Kelley Stolz
Kelley Stoltz is an American singer, songwriter and musician. He currently resides in San Francisco, California. His music has been compared to that of Brian Wilson, Velvet Underground, Nick Drake and Leonard Cohen
- Sweet Chariot
Sweet Chariot is a San Francisco and Oakland based band with members who prefer old gear and cold beer. Their timeless rock ‘n’ roll is a blend of pickled pub rock and greasy biker boogie trimmed in the smoky tones of West Coast canyon-twang.
Sweet Chariot comprises singer/guitarist Eric Shea (Hot Lunch, Mover) and Planes Of Satori drummer Chris Labreche – both dudes from the bygone band Parchman Farm. They also landed bass player Doran Shelley, a former member of The Cramps and Nik Turner’s Hawkwind. Ride The Blinds’ frontman Chris Guthridge completes the band with shared singing duties and top-shelf lead guitar playing.

- Angelica Rockne
“A sure mark of talent in a singer/songwriter shows when a long distance has been traveled relative to the length of a song they’ve sung. Angelica’s soulful, mischievous voice travels far with hints of Stevie Nicks and Lana Del Ray while charged with her own unique, innovative style. In the mournful blues of ‘Human Being’ it’s not a stretch to hear the full Phil Spector treatment behind it, or on ‘What Will I Dream’ with its flavours of soul and country we likewise hear someone steeped in tradition while pushing things forward at her own pace. Angelica’s music likes to grab you by the shirt with charm and authenticity and show you things you’re glad to have seen.”
