A 2-day, 140-mile bike ride from Ocean City to Baltimore City that raises funds and awareness of our families, friends and neighbors across the state who live in poverty with HIV/AIDS or breast cancer.
The Swingin' Swamis
The Swingin' Swamis perform an eclectic set of jazz and world rhythms. From 1930's jazz to 1970's funk and everything in between, it is the band's goal to present to listeners a wide range of popular as well as lesser-known music. Noteworthy performances include: The Kennedy Center, MusikFest 2005, Artscape 2004 & 2005, The Ram's Head Live (opening for The B-52's), The Baltimore Museum of Art, and The Maryland Film Festival.
The Degenerettes are a queer art rock power trio from Baltimore, MD. The Degenerettes' bass-driven jangly fuzz guitar sounds combine with Rahne Alexander’s literary, often humorous songwriting, creating multiple narrative universes—from torrid mummy love affairs to teenybopper spies to Baltimore streets. They are the soundtrack of the Velvet Underground and the Runaways on a big gay double date at a midnight movie.
The brainchild of Pat Termite, inspired by 60's girl-groups, The Firecrackers' original songs combine haunting vocals, rich harmonies, and sugary melodies with stomp and shout rhythms. Their next record is due out this year on Hit Factor, Pat's imprint label of Insubordination Records.
DJ John Eaton
DJ John Eaton is a familiar fixture in the Baltimore underground for his memorable performances in Collinsport, the Shattered Wig, the Transmodern Festival and more. Drawing from his vast vinyl collection and from record labels around the world, Eaton pushes past Reagan Youth nostalgia, presenting hidden treasures alongside old favorites. Best of all, he takes requests.
