Sunday 18 March – Ruby Haunt * Tears On Tape


Ruby Haunt

Childhood friends, Ruby Haunt (fka Haunt) is an american musical project conceived by Wyatt Ininns and Victor Pakpour sometime in 2015. The duo wrote their first three EPs while in school via opposite ends of the west coast (Los Angeles and Portland), exchanging musical ideas over email. In this time they received support from Nowness, Track + Field Records, C-Heads Magazine, and various tastemaking YouTube channels for their unique songwriting and self-produced music videos.

In 2016 the boys saw a move to L.A. where they wrote their debut LP ‘Sugar’, their first written together in a small ocean front house in Laguna Beach, California. ‘Sugar’ was self-released in October 2016, featuring collaborations with the renowned photographer Henrik Purienne, and film duo Wissa for their Roberto Cavali campaign in Vogue Italia.

2018 sees the duo busy at work on their next album and a live show that will tour towards the end of the year.

Friday 16 March 2018 – Pegstar presents: War Cloud * Merkava (all ages)

War Cloud (Oakland, Ca)

Erupting in 2014, out of Oakland, California, War Cloud has been on a steady path of shredding Northern Californian ear drums. Founded by Alex Wein (vocals, guitars), who hails from Baltimore MD, he wasted zero time in recruiting area musicians after firmly planting his amps in the Bay Area. Looking to create an aural ash cloud of volcanic rock, Alex solidified this crew with Bay Area natives Joaquin Ridgell (drums) and Tony Campos (guitar), and Taylor Roach (bass).

War Cloud is a young band but far from wide-eyed innocents. Their musical history drenched in molten riffs across the timeline of heavy metal, the name alone originates from a Wicked Lady song of the same title. With roots encompassing Tony’s tenure in San Francisco’s heavy thrash tinged Hell Fire, Kai’s melding of hard rock rhythm and old-school groove on bass, and Joaquin pounding his drums as if possessed by the ghost of John Bonham himself. War Cloud has created a new flavor of heavy rock music for those enjoying past meals served up by the likes of Pentagram, UFO, Deep Purple, and Black Sabbath.

This is modern metal sophistication dipped deep in ‘70’s heavy fuzz rock.

Thursday 15 March 2018 – Howard and the Nosebleeds * Julian Kerins * Aron Street * Carrie and the Cats * Balancing Lipstick (doors 7pm)

Howard and the Nosebleeds (Houston, TX)

“Oh holy reverberating riffs of fire, oh symphonic demon noise of zen, shroud our souls eternally with your bombastic caterwauling. They came! we screamed! they are Howard and the Nosebleeds! Their melt-your-face-off jamathons for the eon are the perfect antidote for these Orwellian times, and that Pink Floyd cover they’ve been including is a perfect barnburner. “Always by your side! Always by your side! That cat’s something I can’t explain!” You’d better start believing in the Second Coming of Rock N Roll. They smell like punk pandemonium & feel like black magic blues. Say a prayer for whoever dares to stand in their way and lose.” – Poet and photographer and friend Brian Kenhide


Julian Kerins (Houston, TX)

Julian Kerins is a singer-songwriter whose music is an amalgam of Rock, Jazz, Folk, Blues, Soul, Alternative, Indie, and experimental. Experience negates a definition of words, so listen and determine what the music feels like for you.
