If Miles Davis and The Doors were gang raped by The Red Hot Chili Peppers

you would get Valley of The Mariner (!

It was a Sunday night at The Dirty Dog (, YES a SUNDAY NIGHT, and music was FreeFlowin in the Valley of Overlord. Not that cold, but the music will always keep you warm.

The FreeFlow ( was onstage first with their ever and always food feelin music and rhythms. You really need to take a hot minute out and go check these guys out. I bet they would be smokin if you see them down in San Marcos at one of the local pubs there.

Valley of The Mariner was an unexpected, but not surprising, treat. Unexpected because they were so different from The FreeFlow and MC Overlord, but not surprising because Overlord knows how to treat an audience with a diverse musical repertoire. Like the title says, this is what you can expect! I definitely see and hear the cool ass shit these guys were pouring out at the audience and know it has the originality and spark to make them a worthwhile stop on any given night! Trumpets, keyboards, and blazing guitars will surprise you and excite you.

And then there was one! 22+ years, Really! and you haven't been apart of his legacy yet? MC Overlord ( was back and in full effect for the new year...even had Johnny Branch on stage firing up the lead guitar. It's been awhile and his always good to hear that sound. Well no matter who's onstage with the big man himself, it is always lively, fun, and NO DOUBT energetic! A must see and must do!
