THE LOVE DIMENSION:
The Love Dimension is an ever expanding sacred psychedelic music group from San Francisco (Originally from the lost city of Atlantis) that creates sonic architecture for the benefit of all sentient beings across the multi-verse. The Love Dimension is currently using their musical sound waves to open up hearts and spread the vibration of love on Planet Earth to assist in the quantum shift of the collective consciousness of humanity.
With influences that span the musical universe, The Love Dimension is a psychedelic blues garage punk country surf band whose shows have become an amazingly eclectic mix of music’s past and future. Shining light through the spectrum of love and the inner journey, The Love Dimension successfully rocks the audience out of their minds, into their hearts, and onto the dance floor.

THE JAUNTING MARTYRS:
San Francisco band the Jaunting Martyrs has been feverishly tearing up Bay Area venues for over a year now, and show no signs of stopping. Their music kicks, caresses, screams, and bleeds . The sound combines funk, blues, folk, surf, punk and an undying, eternal, authentic connection to the world of the circus. It has been described as "both a quiet, classical bedtime story and traveling, rambling, carnival party" by the San Francisco Bay Guardian and "natural storytellers weaving magical prose around epic ballads" according to Sara Grimes of the blog Untapped Cities. But the bottom line on this group is that they’re really, REALLY good live.
The Jaunting Martyrs bring an unrelenting theatrical live performance and are only beginning to turn heads around town. In their short time the Martyrs have amassed a rabid, dedicated and wild San Francisco and East Bay fan base with their at times insane combination of weird, clowny theatrical performance and just good old fashioned, good feeling, hard hitting American rock and roll.
"Never mind the baby faces… this is a savage band"
