ZION I www.zionicrew.com.
Since the release of the debut album, Mind Over Matter in 2000, Zion I has risen up the ranks of independent hip-hop to solidify their standing as one of the most prolific conscious rap groups of the past 2 decades. Boasting a catalog that consists of over two-dozen albums, EPs, mixtapes and collaborations, Zion I (currently consisting solely of MC/producer Zumbi) continues to create inspired music influenced by social & political woes, personal challenges & triumphs as well as family, spirituality and a raw perspective on the world at large.
Cited by A.V. Club as “remarkable”, Zumbi continues to showcase his talents as a unique, diverse and skilled MC while maintaining his place as one of the most recognizable voices in Hip-Hop.
The latest release, The Labyrinth was cited by PopMatters as “a timely new album of politically engaged hip-hop”. Fueled by his own personal losses as well as the current political and social climate of the world-at-large, Zumbi has created a record that, as the Huffington Post put it; “is as heartfelt as it is badass”.
Being one of the most energetic and engaging live acts out there, Zion I continues to bring the music to the masses at festivals, events and venues across the planet. With a sound and style that bends musical genres, Zion I is able to perform alongside a diverse range of artists ranging from rap, rock and reggae to jam band and EDM.
With an 11th studio album on the horizon, Zion I continues to make music that while left-of-center is still relevant, fresh and exciting as ever. As Okayplayer put it; “At the end of the day, Zion I’s strength lies in the same areas where many artists falter – evolving without abandoning tried and tested methods.”

Carnage the Executioner www.carnagetheexecutioner.com
Whether he’s rapping, producing, performing, teaching kids to beatbox or working his former job as a youth counselor, it’s clear the man most commonly known as Carnage The Executioner was born to do two things: instruct and entertain. Musicians, dancers, DJ’s, poets and television hosts who have worked with Carnage recognize his dedication to his craft and would confirm that he doesn’t disappoint. Ask emcees about Carnage’s skill level and you’ll find out that the phrase, “he’s your favorite rapper’s favorite rapper,” actually fits.
A music fan since childhood, Carnage has filled his memory bank with thousands of references from all genres to draw from. Carnage’s start as a human beat boxer has taken on a life of its own. He now uses technology like looping and effects pedals commonly used by guitarists. He enhances the experience of a live Hip-Hop show by providing his audiences the opportunity to hear original Carnage material, as well as unique improvisations and spot-on recreations of popular songs. Carnage uses this same musical knowledge and technology to create custom, studio human beat box tracks. His audio vision via mouth music can be heard on albums by Hip-Hop heavyweights Aesop Rock and R.A. The Rugged Man.
Carnage is a self-trained song writer who’s skilled enough to compose a heart-felt story as easily as he can craft an intricate battle rap. Carnage gained national fame from his past guest appearances with Eyedea & Abilities. It’s his own original songs, however, that allow his fans to connect with him the most. Songs like Addict, Save My People and The MTW Story give fans a glimpse into the real-life experiences of Carnage the human being.
Always moving forward, Carnage continues to expand his art and build the Hecatomb crew – a slew of like-minded artists who share his passion to create honest, raw Hip-Hop music. A student and fan in his humble beginnings, Carnage stays true to the culture that both helped to change and save his life.

Casual www.hieroglyphics.com
You might know Jonathan Owens aka Casual as the co-founder of the Oakland based supergroup Hieroglyphics. However, If you look deeper, you learn that he is a self taught historian, linguistics expert, and highly heralded as “your favorite rappers favorite rapper”. Casual leaves listeners inspired to define their musical experience referencing current events, ancient Egypt and just about everything in between. Known for his fierce battle tactics and unique wordplay he established a reputation for dissecting even the hardest MCs. Chris Witt of Allmusic explains “ Casual produces an unending and seemingly unstoppable flow of boasts and taunts, the simplicity of his message belies the complexity of his vicious wordplay.” From his critically acclaimed major label debut “Fear Itself”, classic crew albums “Full Circle” and “Third Eye Vision” to indie direct to fan projects like “Rapgod” and “Hierophant” Casual has continued to push the envelope building a legendary catalog and cult following.
In addition to touring globally Casual has been just as active on the business side starting a production company “Wetworks Films”, launching the “Hiero Day Festival” and most recently pioneering “Hiero Coin” a new digital currency.
2014 is shaping up to be the biggest year to date for Casual as he prepares for the 20 year anniversary of what might be his most popular album “Fear Itself”. The celebration will kick off with a world tour where he will be performing the original album in its entirety and continue throughout the year with a unique look back at the project and its impact. - See more at: http://hieroglyphics.com/artists/casual#sthash.UiEmJyxV.dpuf

He paints all of his album covers and T-shirt designs, and has painted and drawn many album covers for other hip hop artists.

DJ True Justice
True Justice, aka The Man of Steel, has been a pioneer in the Bay Area Hip Hop scene since 1989. In an era where real deejaying skills have become scare, True Justice holds the torch, and is known for tearing clubs down in every city and every town. No stranger to hustle and showmanship, he comes from the era of constantly packing the vinyl crates and being out on the road!
True's ambition is to showcase the amount of talent that he has amassed in the last 17 years in Northern California, better known as The Yay Area. While still in high school, True Justice was a hip hop dancer for the Oakland, CA super-group A.P.G. (Action Packed Gangstas), and at the age of 16, he found himself doing concerts with the likes of Digital Underground, Capital Tax, Paris and K-Cloud -- while witnessing first hand the birth of the independent hip hop game in the culturally rich Bay Area.
From 1989-91, True studied A.P.G.'s master DJ J-Cutt as he amazed crowds night after night with his show-stealing solo routines with two turntables, a mixer, and two copies of the same record. When he arrived in Berkeley in 1992, True Justice (then known as DJ Skillz), traded his patent leather shoes for two Technic turntables and a Gemini mixer. For years you could see True selling cassette tapes on Telegraph Avenue in Berkeley, CA alongside favorites of today: Living Legends, Saafir, and the Hobo Junction.
In 1996, True formed the All Purpose DJs with Lord Takim, DJ Styles, and DJ Lex. That same year he began a career of show deejaying, first with Dream Nefra, and then later with Mic T, AceyAlone & Abstract Rude, Aesop and Planet Asia. He is currently Guerrilla Funk's resident DJ, handling tour duties with Paris and T-K.A.S.H. He also works with Enzyme Dynamite of The Bayliens. As a duo True Justice and DJ Lex released Volume 1 in 1997, Aural Sex Volume 2 in 1998, AP2K in 2000, and Pound Fa Pound in 2004. All releases quickly became local classics. The All Purpose DJs have excited crowds with icons such as Slick Rick, Biz Markie, Notorious B.I.G., Xzibit, Phife, Keak Da Sneak, Above The Law, and E-40.
In 2001, True and Lex toured in Osaka, Japan, garnering legions of fans of their dexterity on the wheels of steel. A bonafide student of showmanship, True continued to hone his craft, and in 2007, True Justice dropped his self-titled debut album and joined forces with The Bayliens -- "Aliens from The Bay" -- and dropped the CD Crop Circles in the same year.
From 2007 to 2011, True Justice toured worldwide with The Bayliens, Living Legends, Mistah F.A.B., Zion I, Paris, The Alkaholiks, Jeru The Damaja, Lords Of The Underground, The Beatnuts, Onyx, Redman and EPMD. Vocab Slick

Vocab Slick www.vocabslick.com
Vocab Slick's passion for music and Hip-Hop is infectious. In addition to dropping critically acclaimed projects both solo and with his group Distant Relatives, he co-founded the highly successful Slap Frost tour featuring the likes of Planet Asia, Locksmith, and Chino XL, among others. He's accomplished all of this in the face of personal loss and struggle, which have only motivated him to continue creating important, gripping Hip-Hop. As Vocab says, ''I took that pain and poured it into my music''
In 2003, he not only released his solo debut, Lyrically Conscious, but also formed the group Distant Relatives with his childhood friend, Emotionall. Shortly thereafter, they were joined by rapper Maynee, and released their first full-length, For The Passion, in 2006.The group was struck by misfortune not long after their debut dropped, when Emotionall was detained and shockingly deported to Mexico. Vocab and Maynee were unsure of how to proceed, but they decided to press on as a duo, all with the mission of creating “truth music.” The two MCs were soon joined by gifted Bay Area-by-way-of-Ireland DJ Ricky Switch, who joined them on their next release, 2007’s The Ethx of Distant Relatives, produced by Fremont, Calif.’s Ethx.
Vocab soon showcased his talents as a solo artist with a powerful single, 2010’s “Dark Day,” while also continuing to work with Maynee. The two dropped their next Distant Relatives record, This Changes Everything, in 2011 to critical acclaim and global recognition. The Albom produced entirely by Rick Vargas and featured guest appearances by The Grouch & Eligh and Zumbi (of Zion I).
What followed was a time of personal challenges and growth for Vocab. In the summer of 2013, his mother passed away and his daughter was born. And then in January 2014, his longtime friend and Distant Relatives partner, Maynee, died suddenly. Facing tragedy and pain, Vocab did the only thing he could do—he took his heartbreak and emotion, and put it all into his art.
As the man said himself: “I took that pain and poured it into my music.”
And he did exactly that in April 2014 with the release of the Somethin’ Slick EP, which he quickly followed up that November with his stellar Issues and Episodes album. Not to be outdone, he co-founded the Slap Frost Tour alongside DJ True Justice and Z-Man, who together performed for three weeks straight, hitting all states from California to Wyoming.
The tour was an immense success and grew into an annual tradition with bigger lineups and extended dates. 2015 included performances from fellow Bay Area heavyweights Locksmith and Paris, while 2016 boasted the likes of Planet Asia and Chino XL.
Vocab’s hard work and never-ceasing grind didn’t—and won’t—stop there, though. He embarked on a lengthy 2016 summer tour with Equipto and DJ True Justice while also finding the time to wrap up his latest solo project. The EP, The Day After Yesterday, is produced entirely by Rob Wright and is set to drop in early 2017.

Tony Furtado

Americana Roots Music. A virtuoso multi-instrumentalist adept on banjo, cello-banjo, slide guitar and baritone ukulele

12/15/2018 8:00pm

$10 · 7:00pm · All Ages / Bar with ID

Very few musicians of any stripe so personify a musical genre as completely as Tony Furtado embodies Americana roots music. Tony is an evocative and soulful singer, a wide-ranging songwriter and a virtuoso multi-instrumentalist adept on banjo, cello-banjo, slide guitar and baritone ukulele who mixes and matches sounds and styles with the flair of a master chef (hes also an accomplished sculptor, but thats another story). All of the music of America is in Tony’s music. Relix hit the nail on the head when writing of Tony: “True talent doesnt need categories.” A native of California who now makes his home in Portland, Oregon, Furtado took up the banjo at age 12, inspired by the Beverly Hillbillies TV show and a sixth grade music report. He first attracted national attention in 1987, when he won the National Bluegrass Banjo Championship in Winfield, Kansas. Not long after that, Tony opted for the life of a full-time professional musician, joining Laurie Lewis & Grant Street. A second victory at Winfield, in 1991, bookended his years with Grant Street. In 1990, Furtado signed a recording deal with Rounder Records. He recorded six critically acclaimed albums for the label, collaborating with such master musicians as Alison Krauss, Jerry Douglas, Tim OBrien, Kelly Joe Phelps, and Tony Trischka. Beginning in the late 1990sinfluenced by musical heroes Ry Cooder, David Lindley and Taj MahalTony added slide guitar, singing, and songwriting to his musical toolbox and began leading his own band. He especially values the opportunities he has had to tour with A-list artists Gregg Allman, David Lindley, Derek Trucks, Sonny Landreth, and the like. He has performed at such prestigious music festivals as Telluride Bluegrass, Thirsty Ear, High Sierra, Jazz Aspen, Kerrville, Strawberry, Winnipeg, Sisters and many others.

Liver Down the River

A six-piece jam style bluegrass group from the beautiful mountains of Durango, Colorado

Liver Down The River

"Liver Down The River is a six-piece jam style bluegrass group from the beautiful mountains of Durango, CO. Their story began in the fall of 2012, when mandolin/harmonica player Patrick Storen met lead vocalist/guitar player Matt Granzow. The pair had an impromptu jam session in the Bader Snyder Dorm room of Fort Lewis College in Durango, CO. Together they began experimenting with bluegrass music, and incorporated their eclectic styles on traditional Grateful Dead tunes. That day spawned a lifelong friendship between the pair, and before long they were picking every afternoon.

Soon after, Emily Aguirre-Winter got word of these acoustic picking sessions and began accompanying them with her viola and phenomenal vocal range. Storen recalls hearing Aguirre-Winter sing for the first time and describes the experience as not only breathtaking, but chilling. Aguirre-Winter adds the melodic beauty to Liver Down The River’s music, and her classically trained musical background provides refreshing and angelic textures to each creative composition.

Over the next few months the trio played countless nights in Durango, and enlisted the talent of drummer John Carter Colia, and bassist/vocalist Derek Abt. These additions allowed for more ambitious musical excursions, and a breakaway from traditional bluegrass instrumentation. Colia, the man that keeps the train from rolling off the tracks each night, is a driving force of the band. This combination complimented by the funky bass rhythms provided by Abt on electric bass paved the pathway for the band to bend the rules of traditional bluegrass, and pioneer a sound of their own, which they call JamGrass. In 2014, another main contributor to the band’s original catalogue, Tyler Rice was added to the group on banjo, keyboard, and vocals. With the addition of banjo virtuoso and remarkable songwriter Tyler Rice, it was at that exact moment Liver Down The River was born.

Experimenting with extended improvisational jamming and exploring a diverse range of musical genres, Liver Down The River brings new life to classic fiddle tunes and traditional bluegrass standards. Striving to write music that conveys the atmosphere and feeling of the Colorado way of life, Granzow’s lyrics connect with real life emotions and are easily relatable to anyone who listens. Granzow states, “Whether it be our up-tempo bluegrass tunes, extended jams, or funk tunes we are creating music that will last, and connect with the emotions of our audiences.”

The band released their debut album; Solace In The Mountains on April 20th of 2014, consisting of ten original songs along with their own take on the traditional bluegrass song, ‘Whiskey Before Breakfast.’ However, this recording consisted of only three members, and the band has since developed their own recognizable sound within the bluegrass community. To kick off 2015, Liver Down The River recorded a new self-titled EP set to release in late summer of 2015, and continues to play shows across the Front Range amongst many other places. Their uplifting and high-energy performances have led to the development of their dedicated fan base, which they call their Liverfolk.

Storen, the spark to the band’s fire, brings the energy level up each night creating spontaneous bursts of frenzy and chaos, resulting in overall amusement and excitement of the crowd. Fueled by the energy of their whiskey drinking audiences Liver Down The River creates a show full of magic and spontaneous surprises. The band knows how to get the party started, and will keep you dancing on your feet all night long. Be sure to catch Liver Down The River at a city near you!"

"One More Saturday Night" Winter Music Series

Born in November is a powerful duo born and raised in the heart of Oklahoma, with Cplus, on piano, and vocals, and Woody, on drums and vocals. Humble beginnings led to great individual achievements for the once struggling band. Earlier shows began with many open mic nights and local neighborhood coffee shops where you might find a handful of after-school teenagers rambling through their iphones, or maybe an elderly couple enjoying a nice cup of joe. Needless to say, the hard work did pay off. Shortly afterwards, the band landed a small tour for Buffalo Wild Wings, which required them to travel from Oklahoma to as far as San Angelo Texas. The sound of Born in November is continuously making it's impact across the world, when the band released their first album in 2015, "Born In November 1310." Once you have an Born In November experience, I believe we can all agree, They came to have a good time.



AMP Concerts presents...Trampled By Turtles

TICKETS 35 ADV · 7:00pm · All Ages / Bar with ID

Tickets are $35 in advance, $38 day of show (including all service charges). They are also available by phone through Hold My Ticket at 505-886-1251.

Tickets will go on sale only to AMP members on Wednesday, Sept. 19. Click here for info on AMP Membership.

Regular on-sale is Friday, Sept. 21, at 10 AM.

Trampled by Turtles are from Duluth, Minnesota, where frontman Dave Simonett initially formed the group as a side project in 2003. At the time, Simonett had lost most of his music gear, thanks to a group of enterprising car thieves who'd ransacked his vehicle while he played a show with his previous band. Left with nothing more than an acoustic guitar, he began piecing together a new band, this time taking inspiration from bluegrass, folk, and other genres that didn't rely on amplification. Simonett hadn't played any bluegrass music before, and he filled his lineup with other newcomers to the genre, including fiddler Ryan Young (who'd previously played drums in a speed metal act) and bassist Tim Saxhaug. Along with mandolinist Erik Berry and banjo player Dave Carroll, the group began carving out a fast, frenetic sound that owed as much to rock & roll as bluegrass.

Trampled by Turtles released their first record, Songs from a Ghost Town, in 2004. In a genre steeped in tradition, the album stood out for its contemporary sound, essentially bridging the gap between the bandmates' background in rock music and their new acoustic leanings. It wasn't until 2008 and the band's fourth release, Duluth, that Trampled by Turtles received recognition by the bluegrass community. Duluth peaked at number eight on the Billboard bluegrass chart and paved the way for a number of festival appearances. Two years later, their crossover appeal landed them at number 32 on the Billboard 200 pop charts upon the release of their sixth album, Stars and Satellites. In addition to major bluegrass and folk festivals, they began showing up at Coachella, Bumbershoot, and Lollapalooza. The darker-toned Wild Animals bettered its studio predecessor on the album charts, reaching number 29. Their latest album, Life Is Good On The Open Road (May 2018), was described as "among [their] best efforts yet" by Glide Magazine.
