Stella and PZ alternated sets over 4 sets. We did some seamless transitions between set changes, switching one band member at a time. Fun! (Note to self: when alternating sets, TELL THE AUDIENCE YOU WILL BE BACK TO PLAY ANOTHER SET!)

Listen to the Ozric Tentacles on Grooveshark

Whew! What a night! Stellakinesis had an intense set, then we got to enjoy a marathon set from the Ozric Tentacles! Thanks to all the folks who came early to hear us. We made a bunch of new fans too! The Ozrics put forth perhaps the most psychedelic rock we've heard -- very inspiring. Our new tune "Arabisco" (which we debuted tonight) was inspired by them, but it won't be the only one! ??


Sat., Aug. 28th 2pm
Space Rock Mountain Melt
Skyway Bar and Grill - Zigzag, OR

Stellakinesis plays Saturday the 28th at 2pm on the outside stage. Several great jam bands from PDX and Eugene play later. There will be camping down the road with Twisted Whistle playing Dark Side of the Moon late night! The whole thing starts Friday night with MiMo and Papa Gaiyo. At the Skyway in Zigzag.

On the outdoor stage at the beautiful Skyway on route 26 near Mt. Hood, Stellakinesis was the first of several bands to play the main day of the festival, at 2:30pm. There was an alien costume party so the band was dressed up, and there were cool props and art work on stage. (Look for photos on Facebook and the Picasa album linked to from the website show archive page.) This was the first show with Travis' new custom DW drum set! Other bands -- Jupiter Hollow, the Empty Space Orchestra, Mars Retrieval Unit, and Jesta -- played until 2am, when the fest moved to the campground and Twisted Whistle played the Dark Side of the Moon within a dome.
