El Radio Fantastique (Album Release), Extra Action Marching Band, Samvega
Second Octave Presents...

Join us as we celebrate the  third release from the genre-defying pop group El Radio Fantastique, April 2nd at the Mystic Theatre in Petaluma! The five-song EP, Shine starts an ongoing series of releases, is a celebration of the beautiful and tragic. They will be joined by the East Bays explosive Extra Action Marching Band and Napa's Samvega!


El Radio Fantastique is the band that would be playing at Salvadore Dali's birthday party. They are the band that defies all labels and description, that floats effortlessly across genres while always conveying a sense of cinematic drama, reckless abandon, and broken beauty. Through lush arrangements, driving rhythms and pop hooks, the dynamic swell of emotion that emanates from this group is undeniably deep. If Anton Lavey, Frank Sinatra and David Bowie dropped acid in New Orleans and had an orgy with The Beatles, their unholy offspring would be El Radio Fantastique.

"The band hails from Point Reyes Station and is led by its founder, Giovanni Di Morente. Whether channeling disparate past experiences as a grave digger, dumpster diver, or pop star, DiMorente fancies the broken and the crooked, and he celebrates them with sublime melody and passion. Di Morente and the other members of El Radio Fantastique have bonds that go back to childhood. This deep connection manifests itself in their sound and in the familiar spell they cast onstage."


"The Extra Action Marching Band is the answer, if the question is What's the greatest thing about Bay Area Music?This is no ordinary band! In performances, playing both expected and unexpected gigs at various parties, clubs and parades, they revel in jumping folks unlike themselves off the grid for a second, giving them a flash of the Other; the freaks ... the Marching Band are not the first, just one of the latest manifestations of art-driven, participatory catharsis.
- Summer Burkes, The Wave

Seeing the 40-plus members of the band perform live feels like being at a high school pep rally where the class freaks mug the band, steal their instruments, and play their twisted hearts out instead of numbly celebrating a touchdown for the football team.
- Performer Magazine


Samvega's energy of sound is a contagious chameleon.  Making music on an art farm in the Napa Valley, Where the hippy-minded residue still clings under yuppy clothing, created an apple that fell far from the tree.  They are underground artists with DIY minds, breaking music into a subway of the subconscious that tantalizes the head like a crossword puzzle on a carousel.  Dealing cards of self inspection, moody angst, the soap box circus, they move along the underbelly in search of the world and take you along for the ride.
