2nd & 4th Fridays at 9pm
Amy, Brandon & Jason became friends in the early 1990’s while growing up in & around Oakdale, California-The Cowboy Capital of the World. As self- proclaimed outcasts, this crew along with their other misfit friends quickly realized their love of the uncommon, their shared passions in the music, fashion & ideas of the counter-culture.
A family tree that sprouted in the late 1960’s with David Bowie & “Glam rock”, branching out into T-Rex, The Velvet Underground, The Sex Pistols, Bauhaus, Joy Division of the 1970’s & growing into the lush & dark canopy that shrouded the 1980s with such bands as The Cure, The Banshees, Depeche Mode, Concrete Blonde, Jesus & the Mary Chain, The Pixies, Jane’s Addiction, Sisters of Mercy & beyond. These foundational bands have cast shadows throughout their development & exert influence in their taste for art, todays’ modern music, & their individual examination Sonoma County’s thriving Ethos of the Odd.
Amy grew up surrounded by tunes played on the family turntable by her amazing & beautiful mom- also an avid music lover. She attributes her extremely varied musical tastes to this early exposure. The three agree that Amy most definitely has the upper hand on diverse & far reaching musical tastes. No doubt her creativity comes from a bizarre & at times nearly indecipherable sarcastic wit. Often times you’ll have no clue what she’s talking about…just know that in time, you’ll understand -she’s just THAT evolved & forward thinking. A staunch liberal she’s is a truth seeker who is passionate about, justice, civil liberties & a supporter of local community-musical & otherwise, sustainable industry, organic & health environment, her family & friends, & enjoying the good life & open space of Sonoma County.
Brandon’s saving grace & doorway OUT of the central valley has always been his love & appreciation of music. Going to bay area shows as a kid taught him early on that there was life beyond cow tipping, Stetson hats, Bruce Springsteen, & right wing Avon ladies of the 1980s. He really sees & enjoys the grim aspects of things & has an ‘off’ sense about him. At times you’d swear he was possessed by Eddie Munster…or Lily. He enjoys visiting with friends, gloomy days, & riding his bike into the nooks ‘n crannies of Sonoma County. His other interests included going green, scuba diving and getting into all kinds of new and experimental music. He also has a real love of fancy things. You could say he keeps it fancy, Hunty.
Jason is a self-imposed introvert & all around spastic whack job. His manic creativity-related Attention Deficit Disorder finds his interest wandering from training for triathlon, anatomical quilt making, saponification, home preserving, Mendocino mushroom forays, THE most up-to-date eye shadow techniques available, & an intense & sadistic loathing of & with Hot Yoga. He’s a jack of many trades & a master of his own domain. When not engaged in full blown social-anxiety meltdowns, this pariah enjoys going to shows, theater performance (as long as it’s not a musical!), collecting macabre art, binge eating, Witchcraft, & ‘dogtime’. He’s not sure who the weirdo is, but he’s pretty sure it’s you.
