Experimental Rock – Pirate Pirate Motorhome with Medium Size Monster – www.piratepiratemotorhome.com
Tix $5 @ the door
Pirate Pirate Motorhome is an up and coming alternative / experimental rock band that has had a lot of success in the the Northwest. In addition to a rabid following in their home town and surrounding regions, the band has already embarked on a successful inter-state tour, without the backing of a label. They have a confident and seamless stage presence that sets them apart from their peers in the independent music scene. Their live shows are a frenzied, energetic and comedic eccentricity. They have delivered face-rocking performances at venues from the dive bars of Bellingham, Washington to iconic clubs on LA’s Sunset Strip…
Pirate Pirate Motorhome consists of four very talented members-Barrett Lizza: Vocals, Rhythm Guitar, Hand Percussion. Barrett’s vocal range is extremely versatile. He sings mainly alternative, but confidently sings other styles, such as grunge, folk, and metal. His vocal range travels everywhere from low to high, and he creates a calculatedly chaotic style to best suit the music. Kyle Miller: Lead Guitar, Keys/Synth – Kyle’s guitar playing is phenomenal. His style of playing is very technical and charismatic. For those who study the art of shredding, and interpreting artistic style into music, this is a guy to see. Preston Whitman: Bass, Sax, Whistler, Didgeridoo – Preston’s main influence is Les Claypool, and it is easy to hear why. His playing is quite similar, but with a Preston twist to it. He is as good as they come, super talented, and makes others who “slapa-da-bass” cry. Drew Shreve: Drums – The multi-talented Drew Shreve has been playing drums for as long as the Bible has existed, and it shows. He can play any style, at any time. He is a true drummer. He is a musician that believes that all parts of the drum set have a purpose, and he uses them to advantage to make the best sound and rhythm possible.

All Girl AC/DC Tribute – Hell’s Belles with ‘Bout Damn Time – www.hellsbelles.info
Tix $12 @ the door
HELL’S BELLES are first and foremost dedicated AC/DC fanatics. This is what we all have in common. We’re all part of a huge community of devotees to one of the greatest rock-n-roll bands in the world. This is who we all are, and this is what HELL’S BELLES strives to deliver with mechanical precision and passionate fury. Endorsed by Angus Young himself (Blender Magazine, 2003), HELL’S BELLES are the closest one can get without actually moving to Australia and joining AC/DC’s road crew.
HELL’S BELLES formed in 2000, the brainchild of former member, Amy Stozenbach (guitar), alongside former member, Om Johari (vocals). The current line-up features original member Mandy Reed, rock solid and born ready as Cliff Williams (bass guitar), Adrian Conner, dreadlock slinger and wicked player as Angus Young (lead guitar), Lisa Brisbois, sly and subtly intense as Malcolm Young (rhythm guitar), Laura D, heavy hitter as Phil Rudd (drums), and joining our ranks in 2011 – all the way from Australia, Amber Saxon, the kind of bombastic hard rock power that makes no apologies and is dangerous around the edges, as Bon Scott & Brian Johnson (Vocals).
HELL’S BELLES are indeed ALL female, all the way to their rock-n-roll cores, all the time and without exception. Representing for a whole new generation of women that won’t be intimidated, HELL’S BELLES actively encourage our legions of lady fans to stand up and be counted, and collaborate with women musicians and causes as a part of the mission towards rock and roll inclusion. Not some down-your-throat feminism, but a proactive support and action spirit towards the continued march towards balancing of the gender scales.
The thousands of shows HELL’S BELLES have played around the world, including Japan, Canada, and the good ol’ USA (including Alaska), have become legendary nights of epic proportions. Consistently Sexy and sold-out shows – there’s not a HELL’S BELLES audience that hasn’t been blown away by the raw power, attention to AC/DC details, and undeniable appeal that these bad ass belles deliver with undying devotion. From “Live Wire” to “The Jack” to “TNT”, not to mention AC/DC’s landmark hits “Highway to Hell”, “Thunderstruck”, and “Back in Black”. The marathon set lists change to include a fresh variety of classics, but the perfection and passion of the show never does.
It’s an all out rock-n-roll assault that leaves you both satisfied and begging for more. And, more you’ll get as HELL’S BELLES keep conquering new cities, new states, and new countries. They’ll be in your back yard bringing AC/DC in sound and spirit to you direct any day now. 2005’s studio recordings, “We Salute You”, are slated to be refreshed with a whole new set of songs and available to our public this year, so you can always count on taking a little piece of HELL’S BELLES home with ya.
HELL’S BELLES 2011 – committed, ferocious, meticulous women rock musicians delivering authentic AC/DC to the unbelievably supportive and wicked awesome fans. All day and all night long, all over the world, pitch perfect AC/DC delivered with a highly charged vigor by Amber, Mandy, Laura, Lisa, and Adrian “Angus”.
Let there be rock!
