"Blazed & Confused" will be an ongoing event, presenting the best of our heavy rock culture in a multimedia environment. This debut show kicks off Hellfire Red`s visibility in the rock community as an organization that will bring this scene into the public`s eyes and ears. Starting off the evening`s festivities at 9 pm, will be a screening of the stoner rock documentary Such Hawks, Such Hounds, featuring music and interviews from BRANT BJORK, ACID KING, HIGH ON FIRE, OM, DEAD MEADOW, SCOTT REEDER, WINO and many more.
Such Hawks explores the music and musicians of the American hard rock underground circa 1970 - 2007. Focus is on the psychedelic and/or `70s proto-metal-derived styles that have in recent years formed a rich tapestry of unclassifiable sounds. The film charts the evolution of these styles and their creative components, while primarily serving as a character study of the musicians themselves - artists on the fringes of both straight society and hip indie circles.
At 10 pm, Live music from HALLOWED ENGINE, featuring members from SASQUATCH, VOLUME, and DIRTY RED. Their live shows are a unique amalgamation of thick riffs coupled with nonstop energy. Their heavy groove-laden songs keep the ENGINE rolling and keep their audience coming back for sloppy seconds.
At 11 pm, the heaviness continues with a performance from RIDE THE SUN out of San Diego. A mixture of classic rock and psychedelia, their massive desert sound has earned them a rightful place amongst SD heavyweights like EARTHLESS.
At midnight, the event is topped off with GUSTO from the Palm Desert, featuring Alfredo Hernandez (formerly of KYUSS and QOTSA), Mike Neider (from the legendary SST band BLAST) and Dave Dinsmore (ex-CHE). This new trio promises to deliver a powerful mix of fuzz jams and hard driving anthems in the vain of FU MANCHU and NEBULA.
Club LSD will be supplying the environment as they bring you DJs: Rocco and Joseph Dutra and VJ: Zaico. This event promises to be a night that is sure to mark the advent of a heavy rock movement in Southern California.
Hellfire Red Rock Art & Photography exists primarily to help musicians realize their sonic vision. All music emanates it`s own aesthetic. It is Hellfire Red`s goal to help all musicians achieve the imagery that most reflects their sound. Whether it`s a live or posed photo session, CD packaging, posters, flyers, handbills, web banners or a t-shirt design - Hellfire Red Rock Art & Photography exists to make music look incredible. The members of the collective have all worked with both major label artists and new bands who are releasing their first demo. Hailing from an environment where art has been a labor of love, it is the collective`s passion to help launch new projects and encourage growth within the heavy music network.
