The DARKEST OF THE HILLSIDE THICKETS is a rock band dedicated to promoting the literature of H.P. Lovecraft, who wrote of lost cities, tainted geneology, alien gods, and that fabled tome, The Necronomicon. While they haven't been able to get their hands on the ancient spellbook, The Thickets have their own brand of corruption: they're on a Lovecraftian binge of madness, and they mean to take you with them. They have a reputation for entrancing and inciting their live audiences with a melodic blend of energetic punk and rock while wearing graphic costumes that help bring their good-naturedly macabre songs to life. The latest Darkest of the Hillside Thickets project is "The Shadow Out of Tim" concept album, a reimagining of Lovecraft's short story "The Shadow Out of Time." http://www.thickets.net

BLOODHAG play rapid fire heavy metal songs about science fiction, fantasy and horror writers. Their mission is to spread the gospel of Edu-Core: Bang The Head That Does Not Read. Use Heavy Metal music to promote literacy and vice versa! Their book-throwing antics have lead to a tour of U.S. public libraries. The Seattle-based quartet has even been credited by the King County Library System as fitting the criteria for a literacy program! "Geek Rock with Balls a-draggin' and humor sharper than William Gibson's vision of the future" ­ Flipside http://www.myspace.com/bloodhag

The BOSS MONSTERS sounds like Dick Dale meets the Butthole Surfers meets Link Wray. Influenced by carbonated water, sucrose, glucose, sodium citrate, taurine, glucuronolactone, inositol, niacin, D-pantothenol, pyridoxine HCL, vitamin B12, natural and artificial flavors, colors and caffeine, their music will fill you up with waves of demonic bliss! http://www.myspace.com/thebossmonsters

THE BOSS MONSTERS (heavy surfrock)

Heavy surfrock band from Van BC. Been around for 5 or so years. We play instrumental surf songs, but hit em hard with distortion. Think Link Wray meets the Melvins. Listen on myspace.com/thebossmonsters more info
