Matt Kollock Host Matt Kollock writes songs and performs them with enthusiasm. These are songs about death, love, spiritual awakenings, psychedelia, basketball, TV and death. Influenced equally by punk, funk, blues and 90s college rock, Matt brings a one-of-a-kind sound to the stage.

Melissa Rios Melissa Rios is an Acoustic Soul and R&B singer/songwriter based in Albuquerque, NM. She is originally from Las Cruces, NM and has been playing music professionally for 14 years. She is endorsed by Grace Harbor Guitars, Shubb Capos, and John Pearse Strings. For more information about shows and to subscribe to Melissa's email list please visit

Alonerly Alonerly is one woman amidst layers and layers of upright bass, vocals, and electronic drum beats. Her music brings the longing vibrations of New Mexico from its beginnings as a high desert buried under the ocean to its burning future within the sun.

Kira Holt Kira Holt is a local Singer-Songwriter with a warm and alluring Indie/Alternative sound that is driven from her immense passion for music. Kira loves to do unexpected and catchy renditions/mashups of songs that take people off guard, and project her ability to communicate through different genres and moods. IG: @kiraholt

Oscar Butler Oscar Butler’s shows are a delight. His songs are light, fun, witty observations of how peculiar life can be. His very clean finger-style guitar playing is always great to hear, and for a guitar player — to watch. His passion for songwriting is only equaled by his love for performing. Performing for Oscar is as comfortable as an old shoe and with his beaming smile, his ability to warmly draw his audience in and leave them smiling, giggling and feeling good is a treat to see and be a part of.
