High Plains Drifters
High Plains Drifters
Never got a chance to see the Beastie Boys? Damn. Well, High Plains Drifters pay tribute to their legacy by performing entire albums from front to back. Paul’s Boutique? They play it! Check Your Head? They do that, too! The illustrious trio of Josh Phillips, Eli Cramer, and Adam Strange, spearhead this live band and one DJ, featuring past and present members of Atmosphere, Yo Mama’s Big Fat Booty, GFE, and Josh Phillips Feel Good. This all-star lineup brings you as close to the real experience as you can get, faithfully recreating some of the most influential music of our time.
Foul Mouth Jerk
Foul Mouth Jerk
Foul Mouth Jerk is an independent hip-hop artist. Growing up in the late ’80s & early ’90s in northern New Jersey, he flourished in what is often referred to as the music’s golden age. He credits this period with shaping much of his rap style.

Keeping the company of addicts, sex workers, gutter punks, train hoppers, b-boys, graffiti writers, traveling musicians, & frequent indulgence in ill-advised amounts of LSD inspired his writing in strange and unique ways. It expanded his outlook and expression into something that speaks both to and for the disenfranchised of our culture, as well as nurturing his cynical, tongue-in-cheek writing style.

As a member of hip-hop funk collective GFE, the Jerk has opened for Run-D.M.C. and Parliament Funkadelic as well as Mos Def, Talib Kweli, and Soundtribe Sector 9. He and TopR headlined such national tours as Alcoholics Unanimous and The Marathon of Shame. His 2008 single "Small Town USA" went to #2 on the CMJ college hip-hop charts.

In April 2015, the Jerk releases his sixth album, Death By Misadventure.
Philo
Philo
A walking paradox. A man all his own. Philo has been heavy in the game for years. Equally as talented in the realms of penning lyrics as he is in music production, he is not a force to be trifled with. He is half of the group Effigy, an experimental psych hop soul duo with the homie Linus.
