Crux Hosts Cruxaplaooza III


It has been two years since Crux Fermentation Project opened their doors to the public and celebrated their first Cruxaplaooza. Now in its third installment, Cruxapalooza III takes place this Saturday, June 28th from 11:30am to 10:30pm at their brewery in Bend, Oregon. The festival is free and open to all ages!

Saturday will be an excellent opportunity to help Crux celebrate all that they’ve accomplished over the course of the past two years, a great beer in a great community. They will be converting their lawn area to the south into festival grounds for Cruxapalooza III.

Here are more details on each of the bands performing on Saturday.

Polyrhythmics is an original afro-funk and worldbeat orchestra from Seattle, WA. Their music is a fusion of styles from all over the world, featuring unique, forward thinking arrangements, stellar improvisation, heavy grooves, and dynamic interplay. They recently performed at Sasquatch Festival at The Gorge.

PDX’s World’s Finest blends ska, bluegrass, dub, punk and everything in between, to create a genre all their own!

Bend-based Elektrapod is the brain child of guitarist Gabe Johnson (Jive Talkin’ Robots, Soulwork, El Dante) and keyboardist Brad Jones (FloorRide, Keegan Smith & The Fam, Tony Smiley/MOWO). Formed with the vision of fusing Funk, Soul, Disco and Riff Rock w/ Electronica and Jamband sensibilities, they have succeeded in truly impressing every single audience they’ve performed in front of thus far.

Bend-based Wilderness has a live sound that lives somewhere near the intersection of folk, pop and rock music, with an experimental streak that occasionally runs the stop sign.
