The Shrike is named after the iconic character in Dan Simmons' classic Hyperion Cantos. The song 'Nomad'' is about a character from the book series. Other lyrical content explores dysfunctional relationships, panic, mental illness, predatory behavior, insomnia, aging, and heartbreak.

Then they traveled over 7 states on their Nomad tour later in 2015.

In an ongoing series of collaborations with artists of various non-musical disciplines, and based on the life and works of 1930s musician Gideon Barstow, Myrrh Larsen asks in Piece Of Me, "what is real, what is fantasy, and what is fate?" Come preview this unique show before it heads out to New Orleans on tour this fall!
An ill-fated love story between a fairy and human, Piece Of Me is told through original modern rock compositions, trapeze, contortion, movement theatre, and improvised circus apparatus.
Offering audiences an immersive multimedia story framed by the more familiar trappings of a rock concert, Piece Of Me invites the audience into a world that tears down the walls between fantasy and reality, between seeing a show and becoming a part of it.
Performers: Portland based goth-rocker Myrrh Larsen and contortionist, aerial performer, and Sinferno regular Meg Russell.

REVEREND PEYTON SHOWCASES SONGS FROM THE PORCH Charismatic roots preacher breaks it down on career-defining The Front Porch Sessions, slated for March 10, 2017 release
BROWN COUNTY, Ind. -- Southern Indiana-bred singer-guitarist Reverend Peyton is the bigger- than-life frontman of Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band. He has earned a reputation as both a singularly compelling performer and a persuasive evangelist for the rootsy country blues styles that captured his imagination early in life and inspired him and his band to make pilgrimages to Clarksdale, Mississippi to study under such blues masters as T-Model Ford, Robert Belfour and David "Honeyboy" Edwards. That passionate inspiration has made Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band America's foremost country blues outfit and fuels the Rev's new release, The Front Porch Sessions. Peyton's dazzling guitar mastery is equaled here by his knack for vivid, emotionally impactful songwriting, and his originals are matched in their authenticity by the deeply felt vintage blues tunes that he covers. The album showcases the Rev's irrepressible personality while echoing the enduring spirit of such acoustic blues icons as Charlie Patton, Blind Willie Johnson, Bukka White and Furry Lewis, whose "When My Baby Left Me" receives a memorable reading. The Front Porch Sessions will be released March 10, 2017 on Family Owned Records/Thirty Tigers. "It started as a literal whim on my part, but it turned into something really special," Reverend Peyton says of this new collection. "I wanted it to feel like you're on my front porch. You can almost hear the wood creaking." The Front Porch Sessions maintains a potent level of intensity throughout, from the upbeat optimism of the album-opener "We Deserve a Happy Ending" to the blunt slice-of- life rural reality of "One More Thing" to the rollicking, playful swagger of "Shakey Shirley," "One Bad Shoe" and "Cornbread and Butterbeans." Meanwhile, the instrumentals "It's All Night Long" and "Flying Squirrels" demonstrate the Rev's nimble, imaginative guitar work.
Rachel Lark is a San Francisco based singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. Her music has been featured on The Savage Lovecast and Salon.com and she tours regularly throughout the U.S. and Europe. She's made waves for her biting political satire, fearless authenticity, and hilarious, raunchy wit. She's been called the "musical muse for the sex-positive revolution" and Dan Savage claims she's "in the league of Sondheim and Tim Minchin."
In December, 2016, Lark recorded a studio album at Tiny Telephone Studioswith her band, The Damaged Goods. In March 2017 she released "They've Done Studies" followed by a multi-media dramatic live production at DNA Lounge called "Studies Have Shown." She toured the production throughout the U.S. in the summer of 2017 and will be releasing a concert film of the show in 2018.
In a world with no future and a past soaked with blood, a broken man seeks to escape the horrors of existence by ripping a hole into existence itself, intent on discovering whatever may lie beyond... Unleashing a host of elementals, hobgoblins and bloodthirsty succubi whom wreak blasphemous havoc upon an unwitting world!
On Wednesday, October 18th, we summon you to the hellish halls of DANTES to experience a tale of blood, betrayal and psionic terror as these stages have never seen.
"...Look this once beyond the veils where creatures lurk and reason fails you cannot once avert your eyes as spirits roam in human's guise..."

Songwriters in the Round
Michael Dean Damron aka Mike D
A seated acoustic evening with the Trashcan Sinatras.
The three founding members of the band, Frank, Paul & John, will be playing 2 sets of songs reflecting all the periods of their 30 year career. Some songs never played before, some never to be played again.
As John from the band says
" "Most of our songs are written with acoustic guitars and voices in quiet, solitary rooms, so it will be nervy but exciting to bring that sound out of the backroom and into the light,"
Come along early as there is no support. Grab yourself a good seat and see what songs the evening brings...
