Extra Ordinary Astronauts (Album Release!)
Extra Ordinary Astronauts (Album Release!)
Extra Ordinary Astronauts is a trio based in San Francisco that formed June 21st, 2012. Jon Axtell (Psychefunkapus, Bluebeard, Notorious, Phantom Power) and Jon Merker (The 765s, Sucker MCs) knew each other from having both been members of the popular Bay Area party band The Cheeseballs between 1998 and 2002. A decade later, they decided to form a band based on the songs each of them wrote, and found Marc Carmi Smith (Jazz Iguanas, Miles Ahead, Tom Finch Trio) to be the perfect drummer to complete the triangle. On March 10, 2017 the band released their first album, recorded here in the SOMA district of San Francisco, entitled The Machines Are Winning. For this series of shows the band will be performing the album in its entirety, followed by a few new songs.

Ancient Baby is Chris Peck's new thing. Unlike his music under the name Peck the Town Crier, with Ancient Baby Chris has moved into more intimate musical territory, trading theatrics and humor for confessional songwriting and rootsy musicianship. The first Ancient Baby album is currently in the womb, with an expected delivery date of Winter 2015-2016. For more info visit:www.peckthetowncrier.com
Brian Kenney Fresno
Brian Kenney Fresno
Born in Oakland, Ca., raised in the cultural vacuum of the central San Joaquin Valley, Brian has extracted the Essence of Fresno (tm), and made it smell good (hence the surname). Having already learned to play the guitar and violin by ear, in 1983 Brian found his musical destiny in the Chapman Stick, a new instrument only 8 years old.

Moved by the power and the potential of the instrument, he began an ongoing formal study of music theory and composition.
Finding that boring, he threw that all away and borrowed techniques from sports, comedians, magicians and other performers that allowed him to develop his own uncommon vision of entertainment.

As a musician, Terbo has DJ'd on four continents, released seven CDs of original electronic music and been singer, guitarist and songwriter for a number of unsigned rock and roll bands. He has been playing with the rock group Chief Enablers since 2003. In 1992, he was the first person ever to DJ at the then-unknown Burning Man Festival in Gerlach, Nevada; he played to ten miles of empty desert on a Friday afternoon.
