About Descartes A Kant

Equal parts Pop, Metal, Punk, Shoegaze and Cabaret, the critically-acclaimed underground sextet, Descartes a Kant (Mexico City via Guadalajara, Mexico) have made a real name for themselves as an otherworldly, unpredictable theatrical live act. So much so that even the Wall Street Journal chimed to say that “(trying) to describe their music is to do it a disservice. It’s loud, racy, incredibly imaginative, sophisticated, funny and wild; it’s as if the Yeah Yeah Yeahs fronted Albert Ayler with Frank Zappa conducting”.

They’re now considered one of the leading lights in the vibrant, ever-evolving Mexican rock underground and are now poised to gain greater international acceptance. The band have thrilled both club and festival audiences all over the world – including Russia! – and have shared bills with The Melvins, Stereo Total, Faith No More, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Sonic Youth, Yo La Tengo, Le Bucherettes, Explosions in the Sky and, Slayer – whose ex-drummer, Dave Lombardo had Descartes open for his Dead Cross project.

The band just released their third LP – Victims of Love Propaganda – on Cleopatra records with Steve Albini at the production helm. This record is in a universe all its own!



About Felipe Pupo

Felipe Pupo is an afrobeat, punk, hip hop, hardcore, prog, fusion music experiment by E. Grizzly, Scott Labenski and the ghost of Jason Pupo. Felipe Pupo explore the placement of culture in this current American society. Knowledge of one’s history paired with contemporary context splinters into schizophrenic urges. And as each generation combines swirling genetic imprints, each generation is its own nascent definition. The fury of this exploration is done under the fetters of an Anglo-defined system. E Grizzly and Labenski provide the soundtrack.


About Sikes and The New Violence

SIKES is an American Hip-Hop producer & emcee. His backing band, THE NEW VIOLENCE is a diverse group of talent curated by SIKES himself to help bring his electronic compositions and ideas to life through live instrumentations. Together, SIKES AND THE NEW VIOLENCE have crafted a sound that is familiar but undeniably unique by blending elements from a wide variety of genres and cultures including (but not limited to) Punk, Jazz, Indie Rock, Electronica and Hip-Hop.


About Cody Cody Jones

Self proclaimed “underground DIY drunk-hop i-pod rap” artist Cody Cody Jones (FKA Stillborn Identity) is an emcee from Pittsburgh PA with a strong focus on self reflective lyrics laid bare over down tempo lo-fi soundscapes. His live performances are often very intimate and raw, giving the listener a chance to learn so much about his life, background and personal experiences through a musical narrative.
