SHEKHAN

SheKhan is the musical duo of Kelly Coats and Kathleen Kim, which draws upon their years of collaborative experimental composition and improvisation to create beat driven interlocking harmonies of flute, violin, vocals, mandocaster, synth, effects and more.

GREX

Grex (Karl Evangelista-guitar/vocals, Rei Scampavia-keys, vocals, Robert Lopez-drums) has been called “completely original” (Eugene Weekly), a “near-seamless blend of modern jazz, indie rock, and blues rock.” (Tiny Mix Tapes) Grex is not just “eclectic”–it synthesizes all of its influences into a brand of song based experimental rock that is unique, fun, and endlessly surprising. The band’s mighty, twisted music has drawn comparisons to English Prog Rock (Henry Cow, The Cardiacs), creative jazz (Ornette Coleman, John Coltrane), and noise rock (Sonic Youth, The Velvet Underground).
