Fly Spinach Fly:

Before Portsmouth had the internet, there was a wicked music scene – dozens of diverse bands and audiences full of punks, hippies, and kids who couldn’t adhere to any label. Fly Spinach Fly was part of this community from 1990 to 1995. Their music was a hybrid of rock, soul, and hardcore with rap-style vocals and a distinctive horn section. They created their own path to local and regional success, with MTV selecting them as one of their audience’s top college bands. There were some memorable shows with Fishbone, The Ramones, De La Soul, and Cypress Hill …but if you ask anyone in FSF, they will tell you the band’s greatest accomplishment was reaching #1 on the High Times Hemp 100.

Heavens to Murgatroid:

Heavens to Murgatroid released three critically acclaimed studio albums and numerous singles, toured the country in a giant pink bus and played 1500 shows together in the 1990s while garnering a loyal and rabid following of power pop/rock 'n' roll fans throughout New England and across the world. HTM officially called it a day in late 1998 and has since played just a handful of shows together through the years. All of the band members are still active in the music scene and look forward to teaming up with their old friends in Fly Spinach Fly. One night only!
