Etheric Double Soundsystem is an experimental live pa experience, fusing a variety of music styles into a cohesive mix of sounds, commonly referred to as groove sorcery. Meant to awaken and inspire the listener to reconnect with their animalistic roots, the music of Etheric Double Soundsystem, though unorganic in nature, calls on us to abandon the confines of our industrial cages and embrace the primal archetypes within.

*holy!holy!holy!* was forged in the primal war ofdomestication. We defy these ways. We despise these streets, theseschools, these occupations called work. We are wildness, and willdismantle the civilized destructive forces that have controlled ourworld. There are many worlds, with many languages. They will tell
their children, that despite how hard they looked, they never saw uscoming...

A band by the people for the people, the *Alder St. All Stars* originally collaborated in late 2006 to play a fund raiser for a friend facing deportation. Supported initially by a strong following from the Campbell Club Student Cooperative this heterogeneous group of musical misfits and their penchant for radical politics and outlaw culture has risen to become a staple in Eugene, Oregon's, alternative musical scene. The Alder St. All Stars are not the run of the mill carbon-copy musicians. In fact, they have been noted for their unique brand of honky-tonk drawing on a wide range of musical influences like Waylon Jennings, Django Reinhardt, and the Clash. Thug-grass, Punky-Tonk and Folk-Rock are all terms used by various venues to describe the band.
