Sat Sept 9: Mike Glendenning (Grunge Jazz), Omnesia (Dark Dance Pop/Future Vintage Rock), Dark Garden (Alt Rock), Monument Strange (Alt Rock) — $5, 8:30pm
Mike Glendinning is one of a kind, a guitarist whose anger and sense of beauty run close to the surface, exploding from amplifiers or CDs a unique, edgy, fluid style he calls grunge jazz. It's outsider music finding its roots in two distinct zones: the intuitive, soulful poetry of jazz improv, and the edgy, dirty attitude of a metal guitar survivor flipping off the universe. And that's just for starters.
Oakland, CA based Omnesia is a sonic sapiosexual experience, a split personality duo embracing both dark dance art pop and future vintage rock
Melodic rock with an alternative vibe.
The Monument Strange is a group of 3 East Bay musicians that are based out of the SteakHouse Studios collective.
