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.

Physical Suicide Deterrent System Project (PSDSP) is an avant-grunge band from the Bay Area. PSDSP combines heavy riffs, melodious, spacy vocals, surprising lyrics, and virtuosic drumming for a sound that picks up where Soundgarden left off, taking it further toward where Alice Coltrane was going. Lead singer and guitarist Eli Carlton-Pearson first conceived of the band after reading the comically verbose official title of the Golden Gate Bridge's suicide barrier. Well aware that music had provided him and many others with a reason to live in otherwise hopeless times, he decided to name his band after the barrier, in a move that was both tongue-in-cheek and dead serious. Joined by Brian Wilkerson on bass and Michael Pinkham on drums the band has become a cult favorite in their native Bay Area, and continues to surprise audiences everywhere with a well-rehearsed yet improvisational approach to heavy rock and roll.
