If any one thing brought the members of ...soihadto... together, it's the belief that music isn't simply meant to be listened to, it's to be experienced. Rahn, Duff, Honus and Yungwirth fuel their performances with a love for the pure, immersive sound of performing live. The ...soihadto... story began in 2006 in Baltimore, Maryland. By combining a variety of influences from indie to punk to hardcore to soul-funk and an incomparable melodic approach, the sound of ...soihadto... is as varied and unique as their rapidly growing fan-base. The concept for the bands debut EP was simple: they wanted it to be less of a traditional album, and more of a personal invitation to feel and experience a live performance. The EP is a spontaneous, yet highly kinetic performance, and is the closest you can get to being on stage with the band. The band recorded their upcoming album at the Magpie Cage Studio with producer/engineer J. Robbins. While ...soihadto... have just started their journey, the combination of their unique musical stylings and the furious energy of their live performances have made them a rising band to watch.

"This artist spotlight features one of Baltimore’s breakthrough artists, Big Chief. Chief, who is a rapper, songwriter, and producer, embodies the essence of a standup entertainer. A graduate of Frederick Douglass High School’s Music Career’s Program, Big Chief is not only armed with the lyrics it takes to step into the game, but also the business savvy it takes to dominate the game.
"At first glance, you’ll see the long, twisted locks of hair along with a baby face and may think he can’t be all that, but once he hits the stage with his powerful vocals, undeniable confidence, and raw lyrics, you’ll see that he is a force to be reckoned with. Chief initially made a name for himself through appearances on several projects released under the independent label, Straight Up/ Rockmell Records.
"After the success he endured while on Straight Up/ Rockmell Records, Chief decided to take control of his own destiny. In 2005, together with his best friend, he developed his own marketing, promotions, and record label, The Black Republican Music group. When asked to describe his music, Chief says:
“My music is the definition of real life. Marketing and establishing an identity as a strong hip hop artist with the ability to sell is not a goal I feel I cannot achieve. I’m the X-factor to hip hop.”
"Really messy, long, extended psycho-psyche jams for the people who want to hear it wild and

"A three-piece grunge band spewed from the ashes of the 90's Seattle scene."
Yes, it's the event that Baltimore's hardcore gamblers, horse racing fans and alcoholics all love. The second race in the Triple Crown is only about one minute's worth of excitement, but the entire day is chock full of sinful activities, from betting on the horses to the debauchery in the infield. Pitbull and Macklemore and Ryan Lewis will perform, which is cool, we guess?
