The Earthlings
The Earthlings
Born in a Madison, Wisconsin basement in the early winter of 2010, the collective began as a group of friends expressing themselves through musical experimentation.

Within a year, it expanded from one recording of a few people to an album of sixteen musical collages called Earth, featuring contributions of a dozen musicia
ns and a core group of six members: Elliott & Noah Gilfillan, Luke Peters, Logan Grahn, Chucky Brown, & John Anderson. The formation of the group reflects their sound: malleable, multi-polar, and evolutionary. With a base rooted in groove and dynamism, the music transverses the genres of the 50's to the present era, slicing from every good aspect of 90's rock with folk swing and neo-reggae-tronic elements.

As 2011 passed into 2012, the band progressed into a more defined and engaged entity - performing for Madison and Milwaukee audiences meeting like-minded groups such as Venice Gas House Trolley and Wook. The Earthlings were affirmed of their funk when they recently scored a spot at Summerfest 2013 by winning Milwaukee's River Rhythms Battle of the Bands.
With the various instrumentation & vocal harmonies soothing the air, the lead-sharing effect creates an immersive architecture that stands the hairs on end.

As positive vibrations spill forth, people become filled with the spirit of shared luminous consciousness and leave the experience with an impression that carries the excitement on into their lives forever.
El Donk
El Donk
Besides being the least-tattooed band in town, El Donk is Madison's preeminent cult/rock band. Winners of the 2005 Madison Area Music Award for Best Artist (other). Now halfway through their second decade in Madison, El Donk continues to build on fan/cult favorite traditions like the "Cakewalk," "Donksgiving," and "Zappa's Birthday."

A mix of rock, punk, reggae, jazz, funk, and prog rock, El Donk's musical style changes from song to song—and sometimes in the same song. Long veterans of Max Ink's experimental Bomblastica shows, El Donk has been called upon to play their own version of classic material by David Bowie, The Doors, and—notably—Pink Floyd. As 2013 is the 20th anniversary of the Waco fire, they are readying plans to perform their rock opera "Waco: A Koresh Line" for the first time in its entirety.
