Igor Yuzov was born in Germany, raised in Ukraine and studied in Russia. He grew up in the former Soviet Union, where folk music was the norm and rock'n'roll was illegal. A rebellious streak, however, led him to seek out the forbidden music. As soon as it became possible, Igor left Russia for America with his "Folk'n'Roll" band Limpopo and was personally greeted by Ronald Reagan. In 1993, Limpopo won Ed McMahon's Star Search and their popularity began to blossom. In 1995, Igor dreamed that Elvis Presley came to him and told him to start playing rock'n'roll. Igor and his Russian friends became Red Elvises and gave street performances on Santa Monica's 3rd Street Promenade. As their crowds grew larger, the City of Santa Monica ordered them to discontinue their street performances. Evolving over the years, Igor's music has been labeled "Siberian Surf Rock" which contains humorous lyrics and grooves that forces his audience to dance. Over the past 20 years, Red Elvises have constantly toured all over the world with occasional breaks to record new music and to participate in film and television projects.

As an independent band, Red Elvises have produced 12 studio albums, two live albums, a live concert DVD, and a Greatest Hits compilation. Some of their most notable film contributions include music and or performances in "Six String Samurai", "Mail Order Bride", "Armageddon", "Skippy", "Melrose Place", "Fastlane", "Penn and Teller's Sin City Extravaganza", "VH-1 Behind the Music", and "MTV". Red Elvises have performed for large festivals, private parties, and played on massive stages such as 2005's Live 8 Benefit Concert. No matter where they perform, Igor & Red Elvises always bring the party with them.

You'd be hard pressed to find someone that's into rock and roll and not into a Drunk Mums record. It's well written, raw and most importantly free of pretension. In essence what they do is straight up Aussie rock and roll reminiscent of The Saints with a contemporary garage slant and an enthusiasm to match in the live setting. They do what they do and they don't seem to care what anyone else thinks.

Aterciopelados is a current and contradictory band. After many cosmic moments, in 2018 the stars are aligned so that their trajectory has a Big Bang, a hinge event, a reconnection, a step to a higher plane, it's time for you to forget our past and listen to us; let yourself be surprised by something new, vital, calm and enraged, constructive and conscious and at the same time irreverent crisis.
All this has been cooking something like 28 years, with love stories of Corin Tellado's novel, rockstar dizziness, artivismos & other adventures and the construction of two complete artists, alone or accompanied: Connector and Ruisema, Hector and Andrea. Two characters diametrically united by their differences, '' high voltage dynamic duo - although our luggage is different - we will not stop creating ''.
Forget the Grammys, the New York Times lists, the MTV awards, the city of fury ... and feel the impact of our new songs, fresh and decanted, aged and fermented. Two characters, man and woman, with their stories, their struggles, their visions, their lights and their shadows.

Aterciopelados released his most recent album `Claroscura' in 2018, which won the Latin Grammy Award for Best Alternative Music Album and was nominated in the Best Latin Rock / Alternative & Urban Album category at the 2019 Grammy Awards.
They continue with their Claroscura 2019 Tour.

The Doubleclicks are a folk-pop music duo made up of siblings Laser and Aubrey. At this show, the siblings will perform songs geeky, snarky, sweet, and uplifting, on their cello, ukulele and meowing cat keyboard. The latest Doubleclicks album, "the Book Was Better" has songs about video games, gender identity, and trying to get away from the Internet. The Doubleclicks songs are for everybody, and tend to be appreciated by nerds, queer folks, kids and rad folks who helped fund the production of their new album on Kickstarter, and have made three of their previous albums Billboard-charting successes. The Doubleclicks have been played on NPR shows like All Things Acoustic, and featured on BoingBoing, io9 and Geek & Sundry, and the Huffington Post. The Doubleclicks have opened for nerd stars like Jonathan Coulton and Wil Wheaton, performed at dozens of conventions, libraries, colleges, comedy clubs and game stores around the US, Australia and Canada, and released more than 70 music videos on YouTube, where they have 16,000 subscribers and 3 million views.

The PDX Broadsides, a Portland OR pop-folk trio, have been playing music together since 2011, and have become known for their harmonies and clever writing. The Broadsides have played around the country at conventions including Dragon Con, Rose City Comic Con, and GameStorm, or you may have seen them play in shows with The Doubleclicks, Marian Call, or Molly Lewis. They are a PhD, an author, and a comic book nerd, and have received two nominations for the Pegasus Awards for Excellence in Filk.

MEGATHRUSTER is two geeks in Oregon, armed with acoustic guitars to bring their special blend of funny nerd rock to the masses. Described as "Tenacious D meets Jonathan Coulton", the duo have taken their funny and energetic stage show to pop-culture conventions and festivals across the united states. Their wands are at the ready...

THE LIBRARY BARDS TRANSFORM TOP 40 SONGS INTO THE NERDY VERSIONS THEY SHOULD HAVE BEEN IN THE FIRST PLACE. The Library Bards have become a staple in the new Comic and Pop Culture Convention scene. Traveling the United States, the dynamic performances of Bonnie Gordon (ABC's The Quest; voice of R. Mika in Street Fighter V), and Xander Jeanneret (TBS' King of the Nerds; voice of the Announcer in Divekick) bring life to the main stages of Cosplay Contests, Panels, and Concert performances.

Ticket holders for this show get into Sinferno Cabaret free on the same night.

Oregon Arts Watch recently referred to cellist/multi-instrumentalist Skip vonKuske "one of Oregon's finest and most adventurous musicians." A co-founder of the Portland Cello Project, the genre defying cello ensemble, Skip continues to perform and collaborate with other artists. His solo project is "cellotronik", in which he incorporates a rich array of cello, guitar, mandolin, vocals, software instruments and live looping. The result is a unique blend of classical virtuosity, rocknroll heart, and folksy charm wrapped in a cloak of inspired originals, improvisations, and unexpected cover songs.
