Belly Boo is an annual all belly dance breast cancer fundraiser in honor of Halloween and supports the annual event “Bellies for Life.” Thanks to the special amazingly supportive community in Champaign-Urbana, almost everything required for this night is either donated (the space by Highdive, for example) or accounted for by volunteers (dancers, emcee, doorman, camera man etc). This minimizes the costs and maximizes the total donation.
Other than money we are striving to raise, via this festive event, breast cancer awareness and encourage young women to perform self exams. Bellies For Life also aims at further exposing the local crowd to the art of Belly Dance in a fun and silly way. This is a night of fun and entertainment, all the while for a extraordinary good cause.

Matt Poss is a fan’s artist, and it is not uncommon to see festivals, dives and theaters alike packed with “Posse” members singing the words to every song. Known for producing his own brand of rowdy “high-octane country”, Matt Poss understands what it means to be both real and raw. This Emmy Nominated singer/songwriter self-produced his first two studio albums, recorded his third with the legendary RS Field, and has played everywhere from his native Midwest, to Texas, to Europe, to the wilds of Afghanistan. All the while, winning fans and gaining a reputation for putting on shows with the grit of a Texas roadhouse and the passion of a southern tent revival.
The St. Louis River Front Times described Matt as “another link in the great chain of heartland rocker’s…a hybrid caught between Mellencamp and Steve Earle with shots of Tom Petty and Jimmy Martin in equal measure.” The Chicago Tribune grouped Poss with “Shooter Jennings and Hank III” as part of “a new crop of rising country outlaws.”

AGRIDUSTRIAL is the statement of an American band fighting back against a society gone mad with greed and the usurpation of basic human dignities. The southern ethos is set on high, as the band explores the stories and values of those that have trod the path from our agrarian past, as testimony to those that will have to live it again. There are songs that praise Jesus (“Sin Eater”) and southern-fried provocateurs (“Dixie Iron Fist”). “Hoboes Are My Heroes” is borne from singer J.D. Wilkes’ recent experience of riding the rails to meet the men that are living on the fringes of America, as well as to absorb the rustic rhythm of that life. “Night Ride” recounts the history of Kentucky’s infamous vigilante farmer’s union, the Night Riders, who wreaked havoc on non-union tobacco farms in the early 1900’s. Time and again, the band looks at their recession-ravaged homeland with a mix of love, anger and prescience.
Even the sound of AGRIDUSTRIAL is a direct response to the present day recession in foreshadowing the looming collapse that awaits to return us back to self-sufficiency. The band went to a blacksmith forge and recorded the sounds of hammers, anvils, tongs, cranks and chains for much of the percussion on the album. Bassist Mark Robertson produced the album, doing a tasteful job of marrying the band’s hard driving rock sound with these organic flourishes. Also key to the band’s sound is the ferocious guitar work of new member Duane Denison, who is also a member of the Jesus Lizard and Tomahawk. The Legendary Shack Shakers had already earned high praise as one of the best live acts around, with both Jello Biafra and Hank Williams III calling, J.D. Wilkes “the best front man in the world.” Robertson combines with drummer Brett Whitacre to form the Shack Shakers thundering rhythm section.
It’s been said many times, but probably never so sincerely; this is a band that you must not miss live.
