This event is all ages

Hailing from Atlanta, GA, Starbenders are the half way home for misunderstood misfits, fringers and glam punks. Front-woman, Kimi Shelter and her gang have concocted a perfect alchemic blend of androgynous rock and roll power with "stuck in your brain" pop melodies. Imagine David Bowie playing 7 minutes in heaven with Debbie Harry.

Shelter began working with producer, Nico Constantine (Lady Gaga , Program The Dead, Institution Records) in 2014 who encouraged her to start a band. Aaron Lecesne was the first call Shelter made. The duo were best of friends and had intense music crushes on each other. The genesis of Starbenders took form. Guitarist, Kriss Tokaji, entered the scene in early 2015 after the band witnessed him laying waste to a guitar at a shitty house party in the middle of no where. "We couldn't believe our ears and eyes! Our prayers had been answered!", beams Shelter. The dream line up crystallized in 2017 with the entrance of drummer, Emily Moon. "It was the final piece to the puzzle. The band was in the middle of a transition and I thought to check craigslist of all places when I came across Emily's ad." shared Lecesne. After responding to the band's cryptic email, Moon met up with them that same night. It was love at first site.
Rosegarden Funeral Party
Rosegarden Funeral Party
Rosegarden Funeral Party is an alternative band from Dallas, Tx fronted by Austin Camp and Leah Lane. Inspired by everything from 60's psychedelia, to 80's gothic/new wave music, to 90's shoegaze, to modern alternative bands of the psych scene, Rosegarden Funeral Party brings forth innovation and individualism to the stage.
Austin Camp is a long-time guitarist and composer. With the extensive knowledge of pedals and an incredible ear, he creates music that expands beyond traditional boundaries. He started his musical career in Dallas band Art for Motels and went on to join another Dallas act, the Orange. In both groups, Camp added unique textures and ingenious parts that gave each band a unique and interesting sound.
Leah Lane, a well seasoned musician, has been actively gigging in the Deep Ellum area and nationally for three years with her previous band Moon Waves. A vocalist first, Lane expands to keyboards and guitar playing. Writing for Moon Waves and her solo project as well as for Rosegarden Funeral Party, Lane is a versatile writer inspired by all types of music.
They are joined by Wil Farrier on bass who previously fronted his own band, Black Vega. In Black Vega, Will posed as the main song-writer, vocalist, and guitarist and brings a higher level of musical know-how to the group due to his degree in guitar studies from Booker T Washington HSPVA.
Nate Litz, the drummer for Dallas indie band Field Guide, plays synth in Rosegarden Funeral Party and brings depth and dynamics to the music with leading lines that add to the group's wall of sound. Nate has played with guitarist, Austin Camp, for many years and was the synth player in Camp's previous band, Art For Motels.
Tate Christopher from Vegan Shark drums for the band. He is extremely well-versed in recording and all different styles of drumming.
These five musical individuals have come together to create Rosegarden Funeral Party.
