BLACK VISIONS

BLACK VISIONS
Originating from Oakland Ca, Black Visions have been relentlessly playing shows up and down
the north west. Though they are a relatively new band,having been formed in 2016, Black Visions
have played such prominent venues as Slim’s, Bottom of the hill & The whisky a-go-go. They have
played alongside such acts as, The Monophonics, James Mccartney, Iron Heart,the shams & Corey
Feldman and the angels. Black Visions have been very well received by audiences and have been
compared to the sounds of Queens of the stone age, The doors, Broken Social Scene and the police,
but I'd say they most denitely have their own unique flavor.

The Band Is comprised of master vocalist, rhythm guitar and lead songwriter Manny
Velez, who brings a classic rock characteristic with a modern delivery, and a unique in your face vocal
style. Bernt Strom on Bass Guitar who resembles Roger Waters and John Entwistle with an aggressive
but in the pocket bass delivery. Greg Zema on Keys, who invokes Ray Manzarek from the grave and
Maxx Sherman on Drums who is the frame to the masterpiece, with all the skill and technique needed
to complete a solid and dynamically driven quartet such as Black Visions.

EARLY MONARCHS
Early Monarchs is an American indie rock band based out of Oakland, California. The four instrumentalists from the critically acclaimed group Winchester Revival continue their lush brand of rock in this new incarnation. Guitar-driven melodies, heavyweight bass grooves, enigmatic drums and hypnotic electronic imagery are now coupled with a new set of feline vocals. EM makes for a unique sound reminiscent of early U2, Foals, Interpol, Tears For Fears and Florence & The Machine.

Their diverse musical tastes and backgrounds combine into a powerful and epic force to be witnessed and reckoned with.

VinCi Vibe: vocals
Kirk Snedeker: drums
Ron Cruz: bass guitar
Matt Glick: electronics
Andrew Lund: guitar

FRAZIER
IN THE END, FRAZIER’S WRITING IS ABOUT THE ROAD LESS TRAVELLED, PATHS NOT TAKEN, AND LIFE LESSONS... LUST AND BETRAYAL, PASSION’S QUIET RAGE, AND LOVING SOMEONE SO HARD THROUGH IT ALL THAT YOU BLEED INSIDE...

FRAZIER'S SELF-TITLED DEBUT ALBUM IS A SUCKER PUNCH TO THE HEART THAT IS BOTH TRAGICALLY ROMANTIC YET WILDLY SATIRICAL. WITH A SENSE OF SEUSSIAN SOPHISTICATION, FRAZIER AIMS TO BRIDGE THE GAP BETWEEN HEART & HEAD AND CHALLENGE THE AUDIENCE WITH EVERY LYRIC TO ENTERTAIN THOUGHTS LONG BURIED.

EVERYTHING HAS LED TO THIS...THE STORY OF A LIFE ON HOLD WITH A LONG OVERDUE DAY OF RECKONING; A QUARTER-LIFE "COMING OF AGE" TALE…WITH ALL THE SALT AND SWAGGER YOU'D EXPECT FROM A CHARM SCHOOL DROPOUT. FOR BETTER OR WORSE, THIS IS FRAZIER.

21+ / SHOW @8pm / NO COVER
