Big Freedia is an accomplished “Bounce” Rapper who lives in New Orleans and has had several New Orleans hit singles such as “Gin in My System” and “Azz Everywhere!” from her albums “An Ha, Oh Yeah” (1999) and “Queen Diva” (2003). Bounce is an original urban music rising up from the intimate and fun-loving nature of the housing projects which dominate the city’s street culture. “Sissy Bounce” is the informal name for a derivative of Bounce that has risen to prominence in recent years and features explicitly gay and cross-dressing musicians and themes. Big Freedia is at the forefront of this movement and

Indie blogger Velvet Park describes Lady Tragik as “a renaissance woman who takes photos of her sexy California life, makes short art-films, collaborates with designers and dancers and actresses, and writes, AND raps. It should go without saying that she’s a rising star in art or fashion or music or possibly even all of the above. She’s repping an emerging scene out there that appears to be glimmering with creativity and excitement.”

Smasheltooth and Andrew the Pirate both represent the Santa Cruz / West Coast hip hop scene and are notorious for infecting dance floor jams with inner-city raps, reggae infused bass, and soulful hip hop.

Dick van Dick  and Vogue and Tone will start the evening for what promises to be the party of Pride Weekend. Tickets are available at Public Works and

Greensky Bluegrass is Anders Beck on dobro, Michael Arlen Bont on banjo, Dave Bruzza playing guitar, Mike Devol  with upright bass and Paul Hoffman on mandolin. If you’re familiar with bluegrass music, then you’re tuned in to some of what Greensky Bluegrass does. They’re also known to throw a great party, rock n roll, and (if the critics are to be believed) they have great songs. They are unquestionably a team of friends that traverse the country making music they enjoy. What makes Greensky different than Bluegrass? Poignant rural ballads about real people? Dobro tone that Jerry (Douglas or Garcia) would love? Distortion Pedals? Grit and attitude from a whiskey soaked card game? Indeed, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

Garrin Benfield‘s sound has been described as Freestyle Acoustic Rock. His music is a blend of moody, guitar driven rock and polyrhythmic groove all run through the filter of a very serious Singer/Songwriter. His talent shines through as a solo artist when he flat-picks his way through complicated and lightning-fast arrangements and also while he uses a Loop Station to create mesmerizing soundscapes upon which he lays blistering rock, blues and jazz licks, darkened by his extensive use of effect pedals.  Improvisation is at the center of a Garrin Benfield concert experience. Garrin twists and turns the tunes each night in an ever-evolving attempt to keep searching for new musical challenges.

ediT is a Los Angeles based music producer and DJ best known as one-third of legendary electronic music act The Glitch Mob. He references his personal brand of music as a dancefloor oriented, “experimental, electronic hip hop thing,” but by any label his impact on both the international music scene and the LA underground is undeniable.

Emancipator is known for etheric melodies, immaculately smooth samples, and addictive drum beats.  One might struggle to place a finger on what makes the music so addictive, but would undoubtedly return to the underlying feeling of balance and connection. Now accompanied regularly by the harmonious swells of live violin played by Ilya Goldberg, Emancipator’s live performances have captivated a diverse audience across the globe.

Moksha has earned their reputation as Las Vegas’ secret weapon with explosive show filled with an arsenal of well-crafted material . This well-oiled machine is now emerging from the glitz and glamour of Sin City and quickly garnering a solid following of loyal fans on the West Coast. With guitar, keys, bass, drums, and horns, this unique blend of musicians lives and breathes in a deep pocket of funk rock. Swirling in subtlety, their music paints a sonic landscape that unfolds in the moment and feeds on the dynamic ebb and flow of audience and band interconnection. In other words, they will melt your faces. This show features special guest horn players Jen Hartswick (from Trey Anastasio’s solo band) and Skerik (extraordinary sax player who’s credits include Les Claypool, Galactic, Critters Buggin and many more).

Naîve Melodies was formed in Arcata, CA early in 2011, performing and honoring music created by Talking Heads. Sets are designed to interweave older and newer Talking Heads songs. Fans can expect to hear a wide range of material, from early art-rock, to radio hits, and everything in-between. With blends of three-part harmonies, synthesizers, and heavy grooves, this 3-piece dance machine does Talking Heads right!

Tracorum is an original Rock’n’Soul/Rhythm’n’Blues band from San Francisco, California. Epic live shows and original music are at the heart of this soul quenching, eclectic bay area talent. Steeped in traditional roots music the band has continued to create a positively unique sound that is the vast umbrella known as Tracorum.

Fresh Bakin’ presents the Reno debut of


SUBTROPIXX (Shane Suffriti and Gurbtron)

RL Grime has quickly risen to the forefront of the electronic music bass movement. He followed his debut EP “Grapes”, which included remixes from Shlohmo, Salva, and LOL Boys, with international club anthem “Trap On Acid”, and immediately garnered the support of Diplo,, A-Trak, Flosstradamus, 12th Planet, to name a few.

Since then he has released yet another global shaker: his bootleg “Mercy” remix collaboration with LA based producer Salva. The track had 120,000 views on Soundcloud in 2 days. RL Grime is reshaping electronic production. His melodically infused, Houston influenced flavor is connecting the roots of southern hip hop with the new age of electronic dance music and in turn dictating our understanding of what it means to be a 21st century producer.

Also performing will be Bass Science, Subtropixx, Who Care’s front man Young Aundee, and Maizon Tech. This show WILL SELL OUT, presale tickets are highly encouraged.

Then put these ideas into motion as Claire leads a vibrant yoga asana and free movement class weaving in themes from the talk, all set to a specially sculpted, dub and bass-oriented DJ set by Atmaspheric, FreQ’s downtempo alter-ego.
