BRAND NEW ALBUM 4th ALBUM “ARCHETAPES” OUT NOW ON BANDCAMP!!!
St. Louis, MO
Coming from an ancient, faraway dimension known to humans
as St. Louis, MO, “Lusid” has arrived on our planet to bring a
head-bobbing musical project that is simply out of this world.
The groovy psychedelia of Dean McDonnell’s auditory
brainchild is overflowing with diverse instrumentation; this
includes the interesting adoption of live guitar, funky bass,
tribal didgeridoo, atmospheric theremin, and vinyl record
scratching. Tangled with the handwoven threads of crowd-
moving electronica, Lusid focuses on funky fresh vibes and
floor-stomping appeal against an absolutely titillating
wardrobe choice. It’s gooey, and his impressive musical worlds
offer a dreamy, sensational rhythm to the dance floor, his latest
release being “Visions from the Cryo Chamber” from 2016.
Since 2009, his innovative soundscapes have been enjoyed all
across the United States, a series of performances witnessed at
Backwoods, Suwannee Hulaween, Zen Awakening, and many
more. Better grab a helmet, for the mind-tingling adventure of
Lusid will put you into a state of psychedelic bliss.
St. Louis, MO

Corey-Gypsy Drum Kit/Hand Percussion
Born and raised on the streets of downtown Columbia MO. A gritty street band that rolls as steady as the River on the edge of their hometown and the liquor that flows through the music.
“This one’s about whiskey,” says the singer of The Woodsmiths, the first band to perform. The folk band featured a guitar, the drums, a violin and an upright bass fashioned out of a string and a tin bucket. As the singer belted out the one-word chorus, festgoers slammed a few shots of whiskey to transition from appreciating movies to appreciating alcohol.
The quartet glided through a set filled with similarly-themed songs. A few brave souls took to the otherwise empty dance floor to bust some moves that in another setting would be socially condemning but felt acceptable in Eastside.

Orange Punch Warfare
Mt. Scally, IL
“this summer was the 10 year anniversary of the release of “The New Sound” and in my opinion,it still holds up rather well for what it was. a garage rock/pop album,by a garage band,recorded in a garage studio. At the time of it’s release,the band was unhappy with the finished product and when they played their last show 3 years later, they had dropped all but one song from the setlist. But 10 years is a long time. Listening to OPdub’s “New Sound” now, in spite of the production or the overall quality of the performance itself, I can’t deny the appeal of the songs. “Champagne Headache” is still the greatest hit single that never was and sticky wads of stoner bubblegum like “Morning Cigarette” & “Master Plan” were always crowd pleasers during OPW’s live shows. The mammoth 11 minute “Freudian Slip/Partly Cloudy” seems less like filler material and more like an epic album closer and erratic numbers like “Sloppy” have aged gracefully,probably because of their wackiness. There’s always a looming threat that the band could reunite and release a 2nd studio effort, and some new Orange Punch Warfare might be interesting, but this debut release is still exactly what the title implies.” “The New Sound of Orange Punch Warfare” is available @ Amazon.com CDBaby itunes,napster,and other on-line music outlets.
