Beckylin & Her Druthers
Beckylin & Her Druthers are a wig country band out of the Bay Area recreating the glamor, fun, and sincerity of early 70’s TV country music. When Beckylin's mother couldn't find a sitter and started taking her to the Rawhide (a gay country bar in SF), she never could have known that it would spawn a lifelong love of country music, but that it did. Beckylin and Her Druther's ever-expanding catalog of original music focuses on what Beckylin jokingly calls her "origin story," and on her mother, the original Cocaine Cowgirl. Their full repertoire of classic country spans the late 40’s through early 80’s.

A duo for a new generation. (Rock, r&b, jazz, blues)

Fake Your Own Death
You don’t have to actually die to start over, but you might have to pretend to. Fake Your Own Death was born out of studio apartment located above a bar in Berlin where Terry Ashkinos (formerly of indie band Elephone) was studying the fall of communism for the American government. A handful of songs became a collaboration between Terry and drummer Scott Eberhardt and soon after became a band with the addition of Joey Federale on bass and Shane Ryan on guitar and synth. Fake Your Own Death songs are a combination of loathing and reverb. Tight beats and sharp guitars compliment a bass heavy vibe that is post punk at its finest. All swoon and spit. Alluring stories about misfits, escape and the collapse of meaning create a patchwork of uneasiness and romantic nostalgia. FYOD has been compared to bands like Interpol, Echo and the Bunnymen, Love and Rockets, Froth, Sonic Youth, The National and Jesus and Mary Chain by both local and national press. The band has played with the likes of The Warlocks, Blood Red Shoes, You Say Party We Say Die, Film School, White Denim, Bob Mould, Trail of the Dead, !!!, The Devotionals, The Kills and Gang of Four. Fake Your Own Death’s debut album is called Invisible and Bulletproof (Monolathe Recordings 2015) followed by El Terrible (Breakup Records 2016). Then in 2018, FYOD released 2 EP’s The Wake and Shortest Poem Hates to Lose (What Rough Beast 2018). Addition of Joey Federale on bass and Shane Ryan on guitar and synth.
