Larry and His Flask
Larry and His Flask
Larry and His Flask are a high energy, six-piece carnival of a band that incorporate rock, folk, bluegrass, soul, brass band, punk and alt-country into their own unique sound. Some people call what they do "folk-punk", others call it "a bluegrass traveling circus" and everyone who's seen them live rightfully call Larry and His Flask "down right WILD". But no matter what you call it, this is a band that has to be seen to be believed.

The Flask hails from central Oregon, smack dab in the middle of the beautiful Pacific Northwest, and is comprised of Jeshua Marshall on contra bass and baritone, Ian Cook on electric guitar and lead vocals, Andrew Carew on banjo, trombone and vocals, Dallin Bulkley on acoustic guitar and vocals, and Jamin Marshall on drums and vocals. Since brothers Jeshua and Jamin Marshall founded the band in 2003 the band has gone through several lineup changes and fundamental changes to their sound, but they have always held true to their reputation for an foot-stomping, mind-blowingly great time.

LAHF have toured the globe many times and have shared the stage with such acts as Streetlight Manifesto, Decendants, Wanda Jackson, The Dropkick Murphys, Lucero, Old Man Markley, Pokey Lafarge and the South City Three, Reverend Horton Heat, Strung Out, Trampled by Turtles, Less Than Jake, Against Me!, Andre Williams, Blackalicious, Gym Class Heroes, Paramore, Jenny Owen Young, and Frank Turner and the Sleeping Souls.

In any given performance audiences are guaranteed to hear harmonica, contra bass, electric and acoustic guitars, drums, banjo, trombone, trumpet and baritone horn as all five guys trade off instruments mid-song while careening back and forth across the stage in a punk rock ballet of sorts, narrowly avoiding collisions constantly.

Their love of old school country, folk, hip hop, gypsy jazz, and everything in between comes shining through in their full length albums "By The Lamplight" (released June 2013) and "All That We Know". They also released a critically-acclaimed 6-song EP ("Hobo's Lament") in 2012.

From street corners to barns, from squats to coffee shops, from dive bars to international music festivals, Larry and His Flask continue to bring their own brand of rock and roll to the people. Lauded by The New York Times as one of the most dynamic live shows around, The Flask strive to make sure that no one misses out on the fun. So, if they happen to be in your state, province or country do yourself a favor and check them out!
Acousta Noir
Coming from a background shaped by punk, rock and roll, roots, and various traditional folk styles, Acousta Noir brings a unique, yet oddly familiar, set of original songs to the table, along with his renditions of select and obscure covers.

Joshua first began playing music in 1994, and has been a part of a varied array of musical projects. These include punk bands (as a singer, guitarist, and drummer), singing for a heavy metal band, and a couple projects playing the upright bass.

Acousta Noir sets itself apart from the crowd by being akin to many acts, but defiantly unique from them all.
Life tends to work a little differently in Douglas County, Oregon, and Joshua works hard to embody that lifestyle in his music, while creatively utilizing his influences of traditional folk and country music, as well as punk rock and the good old story tellin' side of things.

Just how much punch can one guy pack into a set? You'll be reeling as he blends raw bluesy soul with a rough and rowdy edge. If you like to dance, stomp your feet, or just have a good time, be there."

The Tejon Street Corner Thieves
We found each other livin' off the land in the Colorado Rockies. Dirty and weathered from years on the road and rails, we decided to see what city life was all about. With nothin' but what we could carry on our backs, more dogs than band members, and bellies full of louisiana moonshine, we made our way to the big city, Colorado Springs.
