Our Featured Performers




Bang Data, http://www.bangdata.com

Join us at the Art Beat Bazaar for a special acoustic set that will have you dancing and texting your friends to come on down! Kings of the local Latin alternative music scene, Bang Data, have that winning style: Latin, reggae, hip-hop and rock. We are so thrilled to have them on our Art Beat stage! “Bang Data brings a fresh mix of slick and melodic guitar, gritty synth & bass, over banging electro-acoustic rhythms; making this the perfect canvas for Deuce Eclipse’s bilingual rhymes and melodies.” Bang Data’s full length album debut “La Sopa” is available NOW on Itunes! Preview here: http://snd.sc/zcHktx Or listen for their self titled song, “Bang Data”, on season #4, episode #10, “SALUD” of AMC’s Emmy Award winning series Breaking Bad.




Judith & Holofernes


Judith & Holofernes, http://fadocore.blogspot.com/

“In the USA, where there are significant Portuguese immigrant communities in New England and the Central Valley of California, experiments with fado (music) are also occurring. The band Judith & Holofernes plays a style that has been dubbed fadocore, a mixture of fado (sung in English) with punk and indie-rock elements.” -LARRY ROHTER, New York Times

“The story goes like this: following a pilgrimage to Lisbon, a group of punk expats in San Francisco recorded a batch of songs inspired by the ‘wine, tragedy and Catholic guilt’ of traditional Portuguese fado music. The results are equal parts acoustic 12-string, droning electric guitar, wavering male/female vocals, and sad sack lyrics–not so melancholy that you want to throw yourself off the Williamsburg Bridge but dark enough to really get into it on the walk over, y’know?” – Nick Barat, The Fader (#43)


Cori Crooks


Spoken word by Seal Press Author, Cori Crooks, http://CoriCrooks.com

“Cori writes like Siouxsie screams!” says writer, Patrick O’Neil. A darling of the critics, Cori Crooks has maintained an international cult following with her no-boundaries experimental writing style which often combines elements of art and music. Cori’s full color art memoir “Sweet Charlotte’s Seventh Mistake” was published by Seal Press in 2009/10, garnering such accolades as the Best Book List 2009 by Tulsa World, Editor’s Pick in Curve Magazine, and Indie Press of the Month from Modern Times Bookstore, SF. Cori comes out of hiding for a reading of her magical short story, “The Worrier’s Fable” and will be accompanied by special guest drummer Gina May Montel. http://www.ginadrumz.com/
