Down Dirty Shake is a rock n roll band based out of San Francisco. The group is deeply influenced by the 60's/70's. Touching on latin, psych, soul, pop and garage rock. The live shows are guaranteed to be an experience; always full of energy and raw emotion. DDS is most well known for there annual milk bar residency and throwing DIY music festivals. Cosmic Correlation Conspiracy made their first appearance as the opening act for the 1960’s cult-classic, The Chocolate Watchband on their 50th year anniversary show at the Acid Test in May of 2016. Stemming from the universal musical tradition of reinterpretation, their music is a fusion of freewheeling freak-flagged blues with a twist of eastern mysticism and tribal rhythms. Black Doldrums supported Sterling Roswell of Spacemen 3 and Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth at the Stock Newington Music Festival as well as Lee Scratch Perry and The Fall at Levels Festival. Additionally, they took time out to play two shows back to back in London and Manchester for the Alan McGee curated charity events Musicians Against Homelessness, supporting 'Blue Orchids' and sharing the stage with Martin Bramah (founding member of The Fall).
