The debut release, Mother Nurture, from Dead End Friend sounds like Seattle. Or, it would if Seattle was a little more bluesy and a lot more sexy. With Jonah Cohen on guitar, James Squires on drums, and a handful of rotating musicians, Dead End Friend made their debut three years ago at EMP’s Sound-Off Competition. Since then they have played all over Seattle, from the Tractor Tavern to the Crocodile, and have released a video for their heavy single “Piece of the Pie.” Kyle Fleck of The Stranger hails them as “a heavy yet harmonious combination of blues and classic rock” and Stone Gossard of Pearl Jam calls their sound “fucking awesome!” Don’t miss their new single "Take It Easy"!

Spooky Mansion started as a one-off performance when they were asked to play for Owen Wilson's 45th birthday on the shore of the Mississippi River in North Texas. After a bootleg recording of the event was passed around in early 2015, a cult following began growing and the band eventually decided to pursue music full time in San Francisco.
