Joe Jack Talcum
Joe Jack Talcum
Joe Jack Talcum is a founding member of the band The Dead Milkmen and has been playing acoustic solo shows since 2004.

TJ Kong
TJ Kong
TJ Kong is a Philadelphia psychedelic blues artist, a son of a Preacher and the leader of TJ Kong & the Atomic Bomb. More specifically:

"Eclectic and evocative, stirring together dusty cinematic arrangements with lyrical tales of depravity and hard-luck humanity that sound like something out of a Cormac McCarthy novel."

"Playing Americana 'slash blues', they sing, wail, lament, and brood over being drunk, hungover, alone, depressed, sweaty, and lost. A simple recount of a whiskey-inspired tradition on guitar and harmonica."
– Pop Montreal

"It lands somewhere between The Basement Tapes and Anodyne, with a ragged, lo-fi aesthetic and lyrics drenched in heartbreak and whiskey."
– Pop Matters

"A contemporary-ancient brand of Americana similar to The Band or, at its crankiest extreme, Captain Beefheart."
– Philadelphia Citypaper
F. Woods
F. Woods is a founding member of surf-punk trio Farquar Muckenfuss and has played extensively with exotica weirdos Mercury Radio Theater. In his solo act, he fuses folklore and psychedelic pop as a bed for his old-timey, end-timey tales. Channeling the oddity of his characters while hurling his entire body into his performance is a spectacle not to be missed. His first solo album, "Found on Road Dead" was released in late 2015. He is currently at work on his second album which is set for a Fall 2017 release.
