UFOMAMMUT - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
UFOMAMMUT
Ufomammut is a power trio formed in Italy in 1999 by Poia, Urlo and Vita, a lineup that has remained stable since. The trio have developed a sound characterized by lengthy songs centered on repeated heavy riffs coupled with droning vocals and the use of sound effects and synths.

8 is the Ufomammut’s 8th album, comprised of 8 tracks that flow into each other without interruption. This flow can also be seen when you tip 8 horizontally, thus it morphs into the leniscate from algebraic geometry – ∞ – a plane curve that meets at central point – or more commonly known as the infinity symbol.

A continuous stream of movement reflective of the uninterrupted nature of the album but also the continued togetherness of the essential elements of the band – Urlo, Poia and Vita – since the beginning of the band’s history in 1999. ∞ tipped vertically sees us return to the number 8. It must be stressed there is no singular pronunciation of the title, 8 is to be spoken in every language e.g. “eight” in Engish, “otto” in Italian, “acht” in German, huit in french and so on. 8 is a continuous flux of music, a singular entity, which can be defined in micro measurements by its 8 satellite songs. Each track expands upon the preceding song, unfolding into an exceedingly dense and malevolent journey, resulting in this being Ufomammut’s most extreme venture yet, with no room for breathing space in the 48 minutes.

Ufomammut’s status as one of the most potent, powerful and artistic contemporary doom artists in existence continues to captivate the masses, and the band’s worldwide grasp grows wider with each release. Ufomammut’s live show is supported by the internationally acclaimed video and graphic art of Malleus, a rock artists’ collective of which Poia and Urlo form a part, who conjure the entirety of Ufomammut’s visual impact.
White Hills - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
White Hills
White Hills is an heavy space rock band from New York, U.S.A. who draw influence from many psychedelic and krautrock bands such as Hawkwind, Can, Pink Floyd, etc. The ever changing entity always pushing the envelope, their music weaves in and out of anthemic chants, deep space bleeps and other worldly madness for a mix that proves to be intoxicating. Since the release of their debut album, the press and listeners have been praising their originality and unique brand of heavy space rock.

The only consistent members are Dave Weinberg and Ego Sensation (aka Lynnea Scalora).

Temporary band collaborators include Antony Hodgkinson, Bob Bellomo, Mike Boul, Daved Pankenier and John Colpitts.
Gondola - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
Gondola
Gondola is a heavy acid-psych-rock trio with Rocky Rinaldi (guitar, vocals), Jordan Blumling (bass, vocals) and Tim Plunkett (Drums) from Philadelphia. Their sound is total sorcery. Snarling guitar soaring over sinister bass lines with lyrics conjured from the void, balanced with the attack, resonance and depth of the beat will leave you questioning this reality.
