Jonestown Crows - 6:00pm to 10pm

With this band, they aim to shed light on the perils of false beliefs as we draw on images of The Jonestown Massacre to take the crowd into a mental journey of religious blasphemy and dark humor. Elements of blues, metal, country, punk, and Eastern European folk are intertwined in our musical styles and pumped through the deepest veins of their lyrics. In part, they evolved into a band of unrivaled gothic blues-infused talent and creativity.
