Second Sun is a metal band formed in 2016 by former Screen members Jared Hazelton and Jake Perry, along with Jared's brother Avery. Influenced by a multitude of genres and artists, the band put a spin on classic metalcore and hardcore sounds. Their new album cult was recorded at NCCR studios by Dustin Peterson and features thirteen blistering metal tracks bound to get a crowd moving.
Skunkhunt is a three piece from Littleton NH. Together we've forged a nasty sound that cannot go unnoticed or remain unheard. Doom meets Groove metal. The great north woods have unearthed a darker sound.
This weekend is the 49th annual Littleton Art Festival! We are closing out the festivities of this day with amazing original music from two incredible bands… Dares from NYC and The Ruined Generations from Haverhill NH area.
As we start up our series of live music this fall I’m thinking about the importance of fostering a scene around the arts and music in our north country community. We have been at it for a while now and are constantly trying new things, sometimes risky things… What we really depend on is a dedicated core group of folks that support live music and the arts.
The Friday before Halloween was our biggest show to date! Thanks to everyone that came out dressed up and rocked out! Big hugs to Time Out Timmy and Mad Cat Habitat and Tyler Blain House for making this night something for the history books!
Tonite is Jazz Nite! These cats are killing! Their sound fills The Loading Dock in warm round edges punctuated by Ben Salomon's amazing drum solos. Donny Cail and Dennis Cote lead the charge with beautiful tone. Hopefully Chris Cote will sit in on trumpet, he added the perfect amount of contrast to the shape of the tunes. Jazz standards and not so standard tunes from the 50s and 60s classics.
Recently we have teamed up with Junction Magazine, from White River Junction, to support BANDADE. BANDADE is a charitable business that taps local popular musicians to help raise money to aid in the fight against cancer.
Just another Thursday at The Loading Dock... Many thanks to Jonee Earthquake Band and Steel Sorrow plus everyone that volunteered to help run this show. We are a totally reliant on a community of volunteers and musicians that make this happen.
