A couple a nasty boys from outside of Philadelphia playing psychedelic garage-yacht. The group consists of 3 brothers: Warren Regan (vox/guitar), Elliott Regan (keys/vox), Erik Regan (drums) as well as the not-brother but highly-brotherly Dallas Hosey (bass/vox). The group independently released its first album “The Cart” in August of 2016 and the follow up album “The Horse” in August of 2018. You will see them wearing their signature handsome-boy suits (unisex) during their live performances. Ceramic Animal’s live show is known for being very slick as they cast an almost angelic aura whilst they perform their most righteous of numbers. Many a tear hath been shed upon sight of the sultry suit slinging sons of psychedelia.
Spendtime Palace is a five-piece band from Costa Mesa with a timeless, emotional, gritty, yet earnest sound that stands up on its own. With serenading vocals, soaring melodies and multi-textured riffs, it is apparent why listeners are always keen for wanting more. In 2012 atop an abandoned building was were these eclectic musicians first came together. The band started as an instrumental group that played numerous loud and restless parties throughout their hometown. This recognition led them to be one of the most go-to bands in their area. It was in 2016 that a concatenation of life events led them to rename the band Spendtime Palace. Right after releasing their debut album Playdate along with “Lily Lee” and “Closed Doors,” keyboardist Michael (Toast) became a part of the band. This addition to the band induced a more exuberant sound, which lead to the creation of the Sonora EP. Title track “Sonora” gained instant recognition from the likes of Billboard, staring Stranger Things Finn Wolfhard and directed by Josh Ovalle. Spendtime Palace is set to release their second album with acclaimed producer Kyle Mullarky titled All Inclusive Romantic Getaway in early 2019.

Scott H Biram / The Goddamn Gallows / Urban Pioneers at The EARL
Sunday, March 24th at 7:00pm
Rock ‘n’ Roll ain’t pretty and neither is Scott H. Biram. The self proclaimed ‘Dirty Old One Man Band’ successfully, and sometimes violently, lashes together blues, hillbilly and country precariously to raucous punk and godless metal. Biram ain’t no candy-ass singer/songwriter either, sweetly strumming songs about girls with big eyes and dusty highways. His singing, yodeling, growling, leering and brash preachin’ and hollerin’ is accompanied by sloppy riffs and licks from his ’59 Gibson guitar and pounding backbeat brought forth by his amplified left foot. The remainder of this one-man band consists of an unwieldy combination of beat-up amplifiers and old microphones strung together by a tangled mess of guitar cables.
Spit from the heart of America’s Rust Belt, arising from a night of flophouse violence. Drifting across the states, The Goddamn Gallows cemented their sound in Portland, OR and later in Los Angeles, CA, where they lived in abandoned buildings, squatter camps, storage units and shoebox apartments. In 2007, they left everything behind and spent the next 4 years living out of whatever vehicle would get them to the next town. Building upon their original sound of twanged-out, punk rock gutterbilly (Life of Sin 2004 and Gutterbillyblues 2007), they began picking up stray musicians along the way and adding to their sound; washboard, accordion, mandolin and banjo (Ghost of the Rails 2009 and 7 Devils 2011) creating a sound referred to as “hobocore”, “gypsy-punk” or “americana-punk”, while never being stuck in any one sound. Enter 2018 and The Goddamn Gallows have reinvented themselves once again with The Trial. From rockabilly, psychobilly and punk rock, to bluegrass and metal, The Trial infuses disparate sounds into a new strange recipe of seamless genre bending profundities. Chock full of impromptu antics of the shocking variety and hauntingly eclectic instrumentation, The Goddamn Gallows have made legions of fans with their legendary, live shows.
