Little Dove

Honing their sound in the LA Valley, Little Dove is a female-fronted heavy rock project that currently calls San Diego home. Originating as a duo with front-woman Vanja James, the band's most recent live incarnation is a raucous power trio featuring two left handed string players: Vanja James on guitar and vocals, Kyle Areford on Bass (The Paragraphs) , and Ryan Schilawski (Badabing, Pinkeye) on Drums & backing vocals. Little Dove's single "Misery" appeared on Season 6 of the HBO TV show Shameless. The latest Little Dove album is set to release in Fall 2017 - this will be the band's first performance at The Belly Up.

Shane Hall Trio

The sounds are a soulful accounting of love, loss, affliction, joy, rage, peace, loneliness, fear trials, enlightenment, and darkness coming to life from a blues driven Americana style.
Travel, experience and growth has shaped this sound and the undeniable feel that resonates clear and present meeting everyone somewhere personal on their own way.


Formed in 2016 from the roots of the San Diego psychedelic rock scene, VOLCANO has erupted into one of the funnest up-tempo Afro influenced bands in Southern California. Inspired by an eclectic mix of 70's era African groups and musicians such as Fela Kuti, The Witch, and Mahavishnu. Volcano evokes the psych-tropicana spirit of the islands with a hint of free jazz cannibalism that delivers relentless upbeat and hard hitting grooves with shredding organ, drum, percussion, bass, and guitar forming a high energy musical experience that will make you never want to leave the island.

Volcano is made up of local musicians and friends, Zack Oakley of Joy on Guitar, Matt Oakley on drums, Gabe Messer of Red Octopus and Messer Guitars on Keys, Billy Ellsworth of Red Octopus and Loom on Bass, and Ake Arndt on congas.
Volcano just wrapped up recording at Audio Design for their debut full length LP that will be released in the near future on Tee Pee Records, a label that is currently home to local San Diego acts Sacri Monti, Joy, Harsh Toke, Loom, and Earthless.

Volcano is: Gabe Messer (keys), Zack Oakley (guitar), Matt Oakley (drums), Billy Ellsworth (bass), and Ake Arndt (congas).
