Tonight– Wasteland Hop with Special Guest the Echo Chamber

The lowdown on these guys:  Wasteland Hop is an indie hip-hop band from Fort Collins, Colorado. Their unique sound has one foot in the groovin’ live hip hop of The Roots and another in the brash, bluesy rock of The Black Keys. The centerpiece of each Wasteland Hop song is the interplay between Mickey Kenny (an MC with the heart of a slam poet) and Steph Jay (a songstress with a soulful wail).   http://wastelandhop.com/

With Special Guest, The Echo Chamber, based in Fort Collins, Colorado, The Echo Chamber blends rock with experimental electronic layers and progressive stylings. The live show consists of emotionally driven dynamic leg kicks and back rolls, laser beams and sometimes beach balls for crowd participation. The Echo Chamber has played many stages from their hometown Fort Collins to Denver to Los Angeles. The band just released their first ep “Vikings From The Future” available on iTunes now.  http://www.myspace.com/echochamberaudio
