Cooperage Policy Update: Moving forward, and until further notice, all shows / events will be vaccine and mask mandatory ONLY.

Club Ritual – Club Ritual is focused on promoting a broad spectrum of underground dance music. Come get down and shake your ass to the greatest dance party in the city.

Gold Steps – Gold Steps formed in 2016 to create catchy, powerful music by The Wonder Years, State Champs and Neck Deep. A chance meeting with nonprofit HeartSupport led the band to bring personal experiences with mental health to the forefront, setting the stage for 2018’S thematic EP, Incandescent. Between tours supporting Calling All Captains, Settle Your Scores, Till I Fall and Summer Wars, Gold Steps hit the studio with producer Rick King and Hit The Lights’ Nick Thompson. In 2019, the band dropped singles “Empty Space,” and “Under Attack,” showcasing the band’s strengths, with bright leads and fill-heavy drums supporting dynamic vocal melodies. After nearly a year of silence, Gold Steps re-emerged in 2021 by announcing a new lineup and new music to come. Glimpses on social media showed the band reuniting with Thompson, and teasing more pop-forward hooks. In June of 2021, Alternative Press named Gold Steps to their list of “13 Artists Who Are Reclaiming The Pop-Punk Music Scene in 2021” alongside bands like Meet Me @ The Altar and Jetty Bones.

Cabin Essence – Music written and produced by Nick Maas. Simple as that.

Credentials – A band called Credentials.
