Cosmic Country music from the deserts of LA

Gracie Horse weaves stories into her songs taking the listener on a journey through the past half a decade of her life. We see her as a traveling nurse, living in big blue expanse of Wyoming, dancing with a man in a crisp white Stetson, eating chicken wings in a hazmat suit, commenting on how strange a place like Los Angeles can be, how loaded it is with wannabe cowboys and fast food restaurants. She makes immaculate country music, the kind of stuff you’d put on blast in your truck as you drive down empty stretches of highway. Her music is also vulnerable, full of lyrics about the intensity of being alive, all told with a sense of humor and self-awareness.  


Gospel from the Garage

Mike Edison is a genuine Rock’n’Roll renaissance man. He is the former editor and publisher of famed cannabis magazine High Times, and was the editor-in-chief of the courageously irresponsible Screw. Edison can frequently be seen with his long-running blues, gospel, and garage-punk experiment The Edison Rocket Train, and he speaks frequently on free speech, sex, drugs, and the American counterculture. He is “proof that one can be both edgy and erudite, lowbrow and literate, and take joy in the unbridled pleasures of the id without sacrificing the higher mind. He is currently a Teaching Artist at Bethel Woods Center for the Arts.
