BISON MACHINE, MEAN MOTHER, WHALER, SFI
BISON MACHINE- This massive four legged mammalian assault sounds somewhere between early Sabbath and early 90s stoner rock with face melting goliath guitar riffage dominating their prehistoric soundscapes. Just like the name sounds, muscular, American, and pure sex. Conceived in a single family wigwam in Indian Village, and thrust from the birth canal in a dusty basement in Hamtramck, Bison Machine rises from the unlikely parents of many former Detroit rock outfits. Come witness the carnage and prepare your appetite for the feast of the Bison Machine soul harvest.
MEAN MOTHER- Formed in 2003 as a side-project to pay tribute to the music they were raised on. ZZ Top, Thin Lizzy, Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin & Deep Purple were on the turntable & weekends were spent at drag races, riding motorcycles & drinking obscene amounts of liquor around bonfires in the swamps of northern Michigan. MEAN MOTHER has played & developed a devoted following in the midwest.
WHALER- Stoner Doom-Rock from Bay City.
SFI- Instrumental Hard-Rock.
SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 28-9 P.M.- $5 Minimum suggested donation.
