Epic Beard Men
Indie-rap powerhouses SAGE FRANCIS and B. DOLAN are the “EPIC BEARD MEN,” a lyric-heavy, stage-smashing super duo hailing from the sand dunes of Providence, Rhode Island. EBM toured the world in support of their “SEASON 1” EP (released in early 2018) and spent the second half of the year putting the final touches on their debut full-length album, which drops on STRANGE FAMOUS RECORDS in late March 2019. They will be supporting this project with the “COME TO THE SAND DUNES” TOUR, yet another worldwide excursion which kicks off in the US this April and May. This time, they’ll be backed by the turntable wizardry of SoCal’s DJ ZOLE (Four Finger Ring, Project Blowed.) Opening the show will be VOCKAH REDU, an originator of the New Orleans Bounce scene returning to the national stage. This one-of-a-kind emcee delivers a theatrical live set that delivers nonstop beats, choreography, call & response, costumes, spoken word and skits that must be seen to be understood. The stark contrast in style between the opener and closer is guaranteed to give the audience more than one would expect from a typical hip-hop show. Expect a full “holy crap that was effing crazy” experience. Once in a lifetime, folks. Come to the sand dunes

Denver's biggest smallest band.

"If there were ever a moment for a queer, disabled rapper with a love for pot, jokes, and revolution to be a star, the moment is now" - Village Voice

Combining humor, playfulness, radical political perspectives, compassion and undeniable musical chops, Wheelchair Sports Camp is unlike any other hip-hop act around. Fronted by the wheelchair bound MC/beat-maker/activist/educator/shit-talker Kalyn, the band is a combination of live and electronic instruments with a more noisey, jazzy, experimental, combination to the traditional hip-hop group. The band has been featured on the cover of the Village Voice as well as in SPIN Magazine, Huffington Post, High Times Magazine and more. You can't really pin Kalyn's beats and collaborators to a specific era or subgenre of hip-hop, and she always switches up her configuration and presentation and methodology while making the music happen in consistently fascinating ways.

The band unknowingly started in the summer of 1997 when Kalyn moved back from Burbank, CA to her Denver hometown and was invited to attend and corrupt the 14th annual week-long Wheelchair Sports Camp. The band tours the states and beyond from their home in Denver, Colorado
