2100 doors at 2000 $10 at the door only.
(Debut EP coming soon)
Sneak Peak Demo - https://soundcloud.com/user-773468876/know-i-know-demo
"Hailing from Nanaimo on Vancouver Island, WIDE EYED is one young new band in thrall to the sonic grandeur of the classic shoegaze template. Blending inspiration from such as Talk Talk, Pixies, Radiohead and Pink Floyd with the wall-of-sound approach of shoegaze legends My Bloody Valentine and Slowdive, WIDE EYED is Nanaimo’s most emotionally affecting new outfit. Loping and strident guitar riffs, hypnotic rhythms, psychedelic swells and soul-stirring melodies collide in a maelstrom of volume and measured distortion for a massive, beautiful noise."

Both heavy hitters in their own right, they represent the heavy west coast bass sound to its full extend with one member located on Vancouver Island in Victoria BC and one located in California’s Bay Area. Distance is no disadvantage to this duo; initially connecting through social media, the two came together after discovering their common love for bass music. The two first exploded onto the scene with their single “Clockwrx” featured on Datsiks Firepower Records on Flatline Vol 2 hitting #9 on Beatports Top 100 dubstep tracks and was heard at numerous festivals in the summer of 2015, played by such artists as Datsik & ...

Dirty Mountain is a roots-rock band with underlying blends of country and blues to support the sassy and often gritty messages portrayed in the lyrics. A musical temptress, charismatic songstress, and lyrical adulteress, Elli Hart is the relentless force behind Dirty Mountain.
