Thumpasaurus
Thumpasaurus
Los Angeles-based Thumpasaurus are a gang of five superbly-skilled young American musicians taking hugely divergent influences and channelling them into something uniquely Thumpasaurian.

These music and film students from the University of Southern California have honed their unique take on a multifarious swathe of musical inspirations through numerous live appearances on L.A’s insane house party circuit.

Thumpasurus offer up their own unique punk/funk stew wherein, hidden in plain sight and sound, you’ll find traces of Zappa, Beefheart, James Chance, Funkadelic/Parliament, Morphine, Devo, Talking Heads and Prince, as well as some rocking heavy metal, free jazz, musical theatre and even some light opera references thrown in for good measure.

So far, 2018 has seen the band release an EP with legendary house producer Justin Jay. Consisting primarily of remixed Thump songs, the EP is out on Jay’s Fantastic Voyage label and has already been played in by massive DJ’s in the house and techno scene across the country, including in a EatsEverything’s headlinging set at Ultra Festival in Miami. Thumpasaurus also debuted a live dance music opera at their first ever headlining show in Los Angeles, and released their debut album in a sold out headlining show at the Troubadour. Directly following this release, Thump caught a plane to Edinburgh where they played up to three shows a day at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, using their few days off to steal away and play some quick but effective shows in London.

Think. Dance. Smile. Feel. Thumpasuarus are about to come into your life and make you do all of the above.
Go see, go hear - you’ll never feel more alive. Long may you Thump.

The Magic Beans are a traveling band from Denver, CO set out to bring their unique, genre-blending music to the masses and inspire a good time. Their diverse songs move your mind, while tight grooves move your booty when they come to town or through the speakers. Drawing from a wide range of influences, The Magic Beans leave nothing off the table as they combine americana, funk, rock, and electronica into a one sound and sometimes even one composition. Their sound has been described as space funk, ameritronica, and groove grass. The group uses no pre-recorded tracks or samples in favor of a more traditional approach to music: original songwriting, diverse instrumentation, and continually pushing the envelope are what have set this group apart. Seamlessly combining acoustic roots music and traditional instruments with modern technology and electric dance music, The Magic Beans are as unique as their place of origin, the Colorado Rockies.
The Magic Beans have shared the stage with an eclectic group of musicians: ranging from members of String Cheese Incident, Lotus, Leftover Salmon, ALO, The Motet, to acts like Eliot Lipp, Railroad Earth, Kyle Hollingsworth Band, Great American Taxi, Zac Deputy, Elephant Revival, Greensky Bluegrass, Split Lip Rayfield, Juno What, Papadosio, & The Werks just to name a few. They’ve performed over 200 shows as group across the nation in venues like; Ogden Theater, Boulder Theater, Mishawaka Amphitheater, Bluebird Theater, Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom, Animas Theatre, Belly Up Aspen, the Cabooze, George’s Majestic, Parish austin, The Grenada, Gothic Theater, Funky Biscuit, State Bridge Amphitheater, Fox Theater, City Hall, 320South, The Eldo CB, Ghost Ranch Saloon, and many more across the country. The group has a full studio album and live shows available for free to fans at themagicbeans.bandcamp.com and has also put on two of their own festivals and participated in countless charity and benefit events. Look for the groups second studio effort, a double album, to be released early next year.
