Cleveland bred group MushroomHead will be taking the stage April 23rd at the Lost Horizion. Forming back in ’93, they began as a side project of various other local musicians. Their over the top stage performance and wild, mind-tripping sound and masks they wear caught on so they decided to take it up another level by making it an official band. Throughout the years they’ve gone through line-up changes and have a solid group now, and even downsized a bit; I bet it’s easier on the roadies! 13 years in the underground, 6 amazing studio albums, how can you not want to witness these guys live? Local bands such as Elephant Mountain, Meira, Wagner 3000, and Dear Mr. Dead are playing in support. Show some local support and get ahold of the bands for some pre-sales priced at $15. Show starts at 6pm and doors open at 7pm be there!
A stoner-rock Syracuse native band, Elephant Mountain formed back in ’09 in a practice space with the birth of two songs that night. They’ll be returning to the stage on this night to support MushroomHead and to showcase a new drummer. There also maybe a surprise in-store so let’s see what the night may bring.
This Syracuse based metal-core band released an ep back in in September titled “Closure”. You can find a digital copy in their BandCamp for free but if your feeling not so cheap in these tough times throw ’em a dollar! They’re also competing to be on the Warped Tour in Buffalo, Ny.

One man’s sick music dream on an acid trip is all I can say about these guys.
Dear Mr. Dead:
A 5 piece band hailing from the ‘cuse area also not classifying themselves as anything but rock ‘n’ roll! But if you wanted to place a title on them you could go with Godsmack meets Disturbed.
