Faster Pussycat
Madame Torment
The Gnash
Hillbilly Bitch Splitter
9pm.


Hollywood sleaze rockers Faster Pussycat made their mark in the world with a self-titled debut in 1987 and the 1989 gold album Wake Me When It's Over, which spawned the hit single and video "House of Pain." In 2007, Faster Pussycat's classic "Bathroom Wall" was selected for Activision's "Guitar Hero Encore: Rocks the 80s" for Playstation2.

Young, crude and full of energy - Madame Torment is Portland, Oregon's all-female rock group formed in May 2011. The band released a 3 song EP in December 2011, which included their anthemic song, Bad Girls. In August 2013, they recorded their single, Party Til You Puke (Live It up) at Opal Studio (Clients include Scorpions, Shrapnel Records & Deen Castronovo). Engineer Kevin Hahn also co-produced the song and the band released it digitally on their Reverbnation profile soon after. The idea of forming an all-female rock band, was lead guitarist, Erin Elizadeth's dream. Having met Elsa Faith a year earlier at an AC/DC tribute band audition, she approached the vocalist and sharing the same goals and musical influences such as Motley Crue, The Runaways and Guns 'N Roses, Madame Torment was born. When the original lineup fell through, the two took a break for half a year. They returned in May 2013 with drummer, Camille Denny and bassist, Ashley Luna. With this line-up, they have opened up for national touring acts such as Wednesday 13 and Faster Pussycat. They were also invited to be part of Portland's best musicians event, Monsters of Rock PDX IV at the Star Theater. Camille, is also recently endorsed by TRX Cymbals America. In November 2013, they auditioned HellKatt Elise on rhythm guitar, a position that has never been filled before. Currently, they are planning to return to Opal Studio to complete a new EP to be released early 2014. Madame Torment never promised maturity, purity, cleanliness or angelic behavior. Only raw dirty rock n' roll, some wild debauchery, madness, and of course, filthy x-rated misconduct. Once you step in, there is no turning back. You're tormented for life!

Shaun Peace Band
Patrimony
Spiricles
8:30pm (doors open at 8pm).


Mixing the roots of rock & rolll, blues, & alternative music, Shaun Peace has a uniquely blended sound of acoustic and electric music that is unforgettable.

Patrimony in definition means "Inheritance from ancestry". The band consists of three musicians, which forms an equilateral triangle of writing, performing, and friendship. Inspired heavily by everything from Beethoven to Led Zeppelin and so forth, the withering sounds of Patrimony reach to the sky while maintaining a grounding with the roots.

The collaboration between Al Paschke and Sylvia Hackathorn has been a long and fruitful one. Since the 1980s they were at the core of the Portland rock band Unknown Soldiers, and released 3 albums with that band. There was an acoustic album called Forgotten Room that had limited release. The most recent Unknown Soldiers album If I Were God worked some of the same songs into the electric four-piece format. Now, Al and Sylvia have re-invented their style to some degree and reformed as Spiricles. This new cd is a collection of songs they recorded over the last two years in Sylvia's studio. The two of them did all of the instrumentation with added special vocalist Beth Harrington on two of the songs.

9pm (doors open at 8pm).


Swil was a short lived, yet energetic band formed in early 03' and parted ways unceremoniously almost 3 years to the day. Very young and naive, Swil set out to try to make a name in Portland. Without the experience, there were often mistakes in their live performances, though often dismissed by most fans and patrons of venues, due to the charismatic frenzy that Swil would throw at you. From nice soft love ballads, to some straight up punk rock, to some hardcore thrash, Swil LOVED to come at you from a new angle with each and every song they would write.

The Punctuals are a Portland, Oregon based alternative punk and roll band. Their music has been described as a cross between your favorite band and your second favorite band slammed together and set on fire. Soaring and soulful vocals on top of frantic guitar riffs and a rhythm section that rumbles like a runaway train. The Punctuals are not to be missed. More information on them can found at www.thepunctuals.com - friend, fan, or fave them if you dare!

The Guitarist from The Tailgunners joins up with the Drummer from Symon Asher, the Singer from Monovolt, and a Bass player of questionable origin, it's Rock & Roll. Yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh...

Jon Davidson is a guy from Portland, Oregon. He's a singer, songwriter, author, producer, and hominid. Jon has released three solo albums, including his most recent effort, Tip Of The Iceberg, an electronic/indie/alternative project that came out on April 18, 2013. In addition to his solo career, Jon has been the frontman for the alt/pop band Crown Point and the hard rock band Silversafe, releasing three albums with those groups. Jon's songs have spun on over 275 FM stations, and Jon has toured in 45 US states, six Canadian provinces, and five countries. He has been honored to share the stage with a wide variety of artists, like Hellogoodbye, SafetySuit, Mat Kearney, Puddle Of Mudd, Matt White, Saliva, Tyrone Wells, He Is We, Tantric, Mr. Big, Nonpoint, Brendan James, Rehab, Josh Krajcik, Powerman 5000, Andrew Belle, Under The Flood, Mental As Anything, The Hush Sound, NewSong, The Exies, Hurt, Scissors For Lefty, and Josiah Leming, to name a few. He's also gotten the chance to meet a lot of people at shows, people who have often started out fans and become friends, people who have changed Jon's life. Jon has appeared in Entertainment Weekly and on E! Television. Jon's music has appeared in everything from MTV shows to Fendi and Burgerville compilation albums to several feature films. Davidson has produced albums worldwide for singer-songwriters, hard rock bands, neo-soul/electronica artists, and everything in between. He has cowritten songs with 604 Records' Jeff Johnson (Nickelback, Default) and former Sony Australia artist Russell Stafford. He has tried to co-write with his cat Minisaurus. It didn't work. Jon is the author of a book, Of Bombs And Blackberries. One critic calls it "the only guide to life you will ever need." That critic happens to be Jon himself. Jon is also the author of the blog Rhetorock. He thinks he's funny. Sometimes, he is. Other times, he probably should have kept his mouth shut. www.jondavidsonmusic.com Jon grew up in Michigan, lived in Israel, Austria, and Russia, and now calls Portland, Oregon home. He is convinced that Portland is the greatest city in the history of mankind. When he's not playing music, he enjoys mountain biking, climbing, Jon Krakauer, Boggle, starfruit, and being Jon Davidson.
