Psych-rock wallflowers B!and return to Bar Open, their home-away-from-home, with added character in their face and a spring in their step and a song in their heart and a snake in their boot and a chip in their tooth and 6am start in the morning.

They'll be playing some music.

Mudshaker is the home to a sweaty soup of heavy psychedelic riffage, expressing stories of the fantastic and the unimaginable. The band has released two killer singles 'Ascension' and 'Apocalypse' in anticipation for their soon to be unleashed debut album 'Tales of Azadahn'

Major Bummer woke one evening and decided to place an ad in 'Musicians Wanted' section of the local guitar shop: “Own gear own transporting no time-wasting people require other people to create grand musical project like Replacements massacring Wilco's 'Being There' with wannabe Malkmus / Mascis team replace Nels / the other guy while Beach Boys overdub harmonies from their death beds via 2003 version of Skype”. Now world peace + universal harmony + first contact with extra-terrestrial at stake, so the production team at MB Capital City ensured particular special care + love taken on Party Time to get Guitar Solo / Chorus ratio just right, all while building intergalactic + microscopic layer of reverberating broadcast that be sent into space with ease but still sound OK on the white headphones you get free with your iPhone. In less time than it take to watch a Seinfeld re-run with the ads taped out, the nine songs within the Party Time world have more air guitar wig-outs + nod to the common hangover than three day spent looking for tent at Desert Daze.
