String Theory, formerly known as Blue Galaxy String Project, is an instrumental pop group formed in 2005 that plays an eclectic mix of originals and modern pop songs arranged for string quartet + acoustic bass and drums. The group is comprised of six conservatory trained musicians representing Northwestern, University of Cincinnati College Conservatory of Music, University of Indiana, University of Alabama, Boston Conservatory, Davidson College and Cleveland Institute of Music. The musicians are united by a common passion – to expand their musical repertoire beyond the traditional roles of the string quartet.
WILD THRONE is a band from Bellingham, WA. Formerly known as Dog Shredder until October 2013, WILD THRONE fuses together elements of Judas Priest, Mastodon, Queen, The Mars Volta, classic metal, thrash and progressive rock.
“Dog Shredder are quantum physics. No space left untouched. Garage insanity? The soundtrack to M.I.T.? Blistering connections that were impossible to predict. If you took a bottle of narcotics and got pushed out of an airplane flying to Naked City without a parachute by No Means No and land on John Zorn, you may end up as a Dog Shredder.”
