This is a list of bands who have confirmed their appearance at Kannaroo 2010. As always we suggest coming at the start of the festival and staying through till the end. All of the bands are awesome. We are also working on getting some younger metal kids to play the empty space before and after the shred fest. Keep in mind, all of these bands play for free, and their love of making noise.
Guitarist against guitarist. Register at 1:00 pm, shred off starts at 1:30. Sweet prizes for the shred off winner.
Best Girl Band Ever
I just take a seven string or fretless guitar, a stupidly huge pile of effects, two big amps and TURN IT UP!!!!! Valhalla! Nirvana! Bliss!!!
Art of Flying is woven around the songs of David & Anne Costanza, formerly of the 80s LA improv band The Whitefronts, and more recently the New-Mexico-based eldritch folk Lords of Howling. Since 1997 they have recorded seven CDs on Discobolus records & one 10" record (released by Cochon records) at their home studio in Questa, NM, The Barn recorder.
Shamus is going to add some sound between some sets!
Big Tree's music personally brings me back to the jams of the swingin' Summer of Love, albeit in a melancholy, jazz-tinged, utterly earnest way. No Elephant 6 revivalists of retropsychy sounds, Big Tree play a brand of grooving, poetic, sometimes knotty folk rock music. I've had the pleasure of catching them play live twice, and they're one of the finest young bands I've seen in ages. Their songs will get stuck in your head only shortly after your heart leaves your mouth from the impact of the perfect vocal harmonies.
A soundtrack to the end of times. It's a blend of new and old sounds with topics covering hostage situations, alien invasions, floods, fires, terrorism, and the balance of good and evil. The Subfobias were formed in Madrid, Spain, but are currently playing gigs in Sacramento, California.
The result of a fortuitous meeting in the tranquil, sinister town of Taos, New Mexico, Manby’s Head commenced when noted guitarist Peter Greenberg (DMZ, Customs, Lyres, Barrence Whitfield & The Savages) joined vocalist/ other guitarist Michael Mooney and bass player Paul Reid in early summer, 2009. Drummer Eric Whitlock entered as the weather began to turn
With clever dissonance on top of a foundation of odd meters and fresh rhythm, this hardcore duo/trio is as refined as loud can get. Masters of the ensemble, The Terrible Airplane has tightly knit unison moments, and a lively interplay amongst members of the band.
The second best girl band ever.
