Music Box Presents SPINDRIFT Cellar Doors The Bomb Caravan 222 Dj Mae Delia Visuals by Molly 8pm Links: Spindrift Cellar Doors Frost video: Facebook: Bandcamp: The Bomb Official Website: Official Instagram: Official Facebook: Official Bandcamp: Caravan 222 About: SPINDRIFT SPINDRIFT is a cinematically driven psychedelic, western rock band currently hailing from Los Angeles whose musical output has spanned over two decades. Created by guitarist-singer-songwriter turned actor-composer-producer Kirpatrick Thomas, the band's uniquely talented roster serves up an inspiring and creative ethic that remains a mainstay throughout the ever shifting musical climate. While their more current, mature sound may resemble something of a 4-5 piece Ennio Morricone inspired mini-orchestra, the group's formulaic years in the college town of Newark, Delaware(circa the 90's) delivered the sound of a total different animal. Early influences from The Doors, to the vintage reverb drenched sounds of Surf Rock, the global rythm of Exotica, Shoegaze, Punk, and the progressive sounds of 70's Spacerocklike Hawkwind provided a foundation for countless live shows and early experimental recordings. In 2001, three-quarters of the band relocated to the West Coast while Thomas began to collaborate with members of The Brian Jonestown Massacre. SPINDRIFT then broke into indie film scoring by first releasing a ficticious Soundtrack concept album. It would go on to become the catalyst to 2008's feature Spaghetti Western homage film The Legend of God's Gun (Dir. by Mike Bruce). The updated Soundtrack was released on Tee Pee Records, and the film earned the attention of Quentin Tarantino who used their song "Indian Run" in his biker exploitation film Hell Ride. Following the success of The Legend of God's Gun, the 2009 follow up record, The West was released on The Dandy Warhol's Beat the World label and is now set for a vinyl re-release on Xemu Records this Fall. In the months that followed, the band went on tour with The Black Angels, Dead Meadow, and headlined several more US Tours. After a brief lineup change in 2010, Thomas had developed a more evolved and diverse approach with the conceptual film score album Classic Soundtracks Volume 1. Their first European Tour followed with Black Rebel Motorcylce Club. SPINDRIFT's music was then featured on HBO's East Bound and Down (Seasons 1 &2), Showtime's Californication, and two more feature indie feature films DUST UP(Dir. Ward Roberts) and Treasure of the Black Jaguar (Dir. by Mike Bruce). SPINDRIFT's 2012 album Ghost of the West, was a collection of classic Old Western cowboy tunes and accompanied the Ghost Town Tour that same year. This five week tour performing in over 21 unknown empty Gold Rush towns across the arid, deserted Western USA was documented on film and edited for the feature Spindrift: Ghost of the West(Dir. Burke Roberts). The soundtrack was released again on Tee Pee Records, and the film is set for premier this Fall beginning with the Almerian Western Film Festival in Tabernas, Spain. Some of SPINDRIFT's notable live performances include shows with punk legends X in front of a crowd of 8,000+ in downtown LA's Pershing Square, multiple collaborations with Dead Kennedy's Jello Biafra, festivals such as Reverence (Portugal), Roadburn, Incubate (Tilberg), SXSW, Levitation France, Liverpool Psych Fest, as well as Austin Psych Fest Levititation #'s 1, 3, 5, and 7. More recently, after signing with publisher BMG, Thomas has been working with Viceland on "Hamilton's Pharmacopia" and "King of the Road" Seasons 1 & 2. SPINDRIFT will be performing in the United States this Summer and in Europe this Fall in promotion of their film works with new material from their ongoing musical library Classic Soundtracks Volume's 2,3, & 4. Cellar Doors Cellar Doors began in early 2010 in San Francisco. The trio consists of Sean Fitzsimmons (Vocals, Guitar, Bass) Jason Witz (Bass, Guitar, Vocals), and Miro Rogulj (Percussion, Vocals). The band is influenced by various forms of art, ranging anywhere from The Velvet Underground to The Stone Roses, Serge Gainsbourg to Spacemen 3, or Hitchcock to Dali. Their name is derived from a J.R.R. Tolkien quote, stating that the phonetic pronunciation of 'cellar door' is beautiful, dissociated from its sense (and from its spelling). However, the words themselves portray a dark doorway to the underground. With this appreciation for both the beautiful and the macabre they create a unique concoction of reverberating rock & roll that washes over you like a psychedelic tidal wave. The band has shared the stage with the likes of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Spindrift, The Whigs, Allah-Las, Gringo Star, The Records, and have been known to back local legend Cyril Jordan of The Flamin' Groovies on occasion. The Bomb "The Bomb is Rachel Fannan, Dash Hutton and Quincy Larson. An angst driven kiss blown to the likes of Dinosaur Jr. and Black Sabbath, head banging rock n'll with a dash of blown out shoe gaze." The Bomb "The Bomb is Rachel Fannan, Dash Hutton and Quincy Larson. An angst driven kiss blown to the likes of Dinosaur Jr. and Black Sabbath, head banging rock n'll with a dash of blown out shoe gaze." Caravan 222 'Caravan 222' is cosmic Californian music, A San Franciscan super troupe, musical collaboration formed by adjoining members of some of the bay area's top bands. The group consists of Jacob Landry (Lee Gallagher and the Hallelujah), Kyle Demartini (Down Dirty Shake), Nate Porter (New Sun Company), Dashiel McClary (Big River Ever After), and their Chilean counterpart, Simon Todorovic (A Full Cosmic Sound). With all the members being individual writers, the band invokes a range of emotions, from bittersweet ballads and cruising poem songs to dirty rock and roll anthems. Their musical presence is reminiscent of 70's Dylan, Young, CCR, The Dead, Cohen, Donovan and more. Upon seeing these players live one can't help but to feel they must be witnessing something special and rare to this day and age. May the 'caravan' rock as it rolls down the good times highway to a rumbling stop at a cosmic spot near you! Keep up to date on all the latest, "Like" our FB Page LOVE, Music Box Presents
