Stanky Bird- An obscure term referring to a physical expression of absolute catharsis, usually induced by heavy bass music.
Sleepover-an overnight stay (as at another's home).
Hey Man Entertainment is proud to present all you wild dancers, midnight prancers, and sideways glancers with the first ever Stanky Bird Sleepover. We'll be hosting our little soiree, under the stars of the Nashville sky, as a celebration for all of our dear friends who have birthdays in April. Let's make one thing very clear though, this will not be your average slumber party by any stretch of the imagination. The members of Hey Man pride ourselves on our innate ability to reliably party professionally, cordially, and with the utmost lack of sensibility. That is precisely why this birthday bash will deliver a delightful array of music, lights, art, and hand crafted merchandise produced by some of the most prolific starving artists to ever grace the battlefield of abstract thought. As is required by the 87th Amendment to the United States constitution (Article II, paragraph 157) we will also have a food truck onsite with a generous supply of those delicious Italian treats that are a necessity for any sleepover, which will be remembered for years to come. Pizza. We're talkin' 'bout pizza here people, and it will be glorious.
In keeping with tradition from last year's collective birthday bash (also to ensure that no injuries occur as a result of improper sleepwear) we will be incorporating our second annual pajama contest into the shenanigans. That's right you crazy kids, we can hear you squealing with excitement at the opportunity to model your freshest onesies, twosies, and tripled floozies for a chance to win a Hey Man surprise prize prize... prize.
We, at Hey Man, have been incredibly fortunate in the value we've found in other people throughout the course of our lives. Perhaps the only greater fortune is the value those people have found in us. Without them, none off this would be possible. It is this fortune that drives our intense desire to create environments in which we can bring people together, and advance our collective understanding of what it means to live among the beatific. Of course, this is a monumental goal. One with which our desires may never be satiated without a little help from our friends. The Southern Demon Herd will be lending their talents for sound engineering, and projector mapping. Our good friend Taco Garay will be adding to the majesty of the subliminal imagery that will be gracing the stage via projectors; and, Charlie Tambelini has worked with us to make Further Farms the home for our super sleazy sleepover extravaganza.
Gates will open at 1 p.m., music will begin at 4 p.m. Central Eastern Pacific Mountain time, and you won't get chased off by anyone's overwhelmed mom until 2 p.m. the next day.
— THE PERFORMERS — - Katheleen Cox-
A wondrous young woman from Cadiz, KY that masterfully implements a loop pedal to create a rapturous live production of acoustic alternative music. Her voice is larger than life, defying her elegant stature, and immersing the audience's ears in blissful melody.
-John Tyler and The Chase-
An astoundingly dynamic trio of young men who call Nashville home. Their mission is very clear, and that is to bring about a revival of the timeless sound of guitar-driven rock and roll.
-The Mellow Junkies-
A wildly twangy three piece twist of outlaw country, old school rock and roll, and bluegrass. All of which are pulled together by the punk-ish, yet loving, energy these middle Tennessee natives bring to every live performance, including life.
Full throttle jam militia bent on psych grooves flowing through celestial bodies.
Whiskey Angel was founded on a simple Idea: Play fast, loud, raw, and in-your-face Rock N Roll... quite adamantly the Roll Part.
-Brotherz From Another Mother-
Starting a brotherly bond beneath the smoldering sunsets of Arizona, Jake Godwin and Josh Lowry migrated onto the burgeoning EDM scene of Nashville, Tennessee to bring forth Brotherz From Another Mother. Like a Phoenix rising from the ashes, this grassroots duo compiled their collective bond, joys, and experiences as veteran airmen to bring listeners a genre splitting sound that provides ample pleasure to the ears; as well as, hope to the spirit. Hustling from nine to fives to their self made studios, their passionate sound is an intermingling of musical influences from hip hop and psychedelic rock, to ambient melodies, and hard hitting bass. Staying on the cutting edge of production technology and live instrumentation, Brotherz From Another Mother captures raw emotions and subversive melodies, offering their fans a musical space to free their burdens, lift their spirits and BFAM!
Kacey Skinner is a burgeoning artist from Franklin, TN looking to establish himself as one of the premier EDM acts in our beloved Music City. He has opened for acts such as Ill. Gates, EOTO, Wuki, Sayer, Esseks, The Widdler, TRUTH and Phutureprimitive. Yet, in a city known primarily for Honkey-Tonk and Americana, he realizes the obstacles artists like himself must overcome in order to breakthrough the tightly knit seams that country music has woven throughout the city.
The being known as Tronnik is a futuristic entity known for his gut wrenching heavy wobbles, and bass music, that seem as though they were delivered from the deepest reaches of outer space. Rumor has it he's traveled to our lowly planet from another dimension in order to spread knowledge acquired directly from the Wubble Telescope. To our delight he has brought with him a plethora of huge riddims, nasty noises, and beautifully melodic synths that span far beyond the known galaxy. Tronnik is known to warp space and time when he hits the decks with the underground flex. This particular extraterrestrial may not boast glowing fingers; however, he will be sure to initiate stank faces and make booties shake harder than our feeble minds can comprehend.
Is good vibes. To be clear, he does not exude good vibes. He does not preach good vibes. He doesn't even think, assume, or hypothesize about good vibes. Stavey IS good vibes. Put that in your tape deck and wang it.
— THE ARTISTS AND VENDORS — -Adventure Kid Designs-
-Art by Chill Will-
Chill Will will be providing live painting, along with a selection of original canvas paintings, and prints of original work for those of us who can't quite afford the originals.
Solo will also be actively working on original paintings while the madness unfolds in the background. We can confidently depend on these artists to create clarified beauty from the chaos that is sure to unfold when all the animals get to stomping.
-Utopian Slur, Art by Tori Stutts-
Utopian Slur (meaning “perfect imperfection”) is a self taught visual artist from Nashville, TN. Working mostly with acrylics, each piece is the embodiment of the idea that love and pure intentions could heal humanity. Every artwork is inspired by a real life experience, feeling, or emotion, making her collection of works as autobiographical as they are intimate. Having displayed at events and galleries such as The Frist, Deep Tropics, Far Out Fest, Solasta, StaveyFest (and many more), Utopian Slur brings colorful and loving vibes wherever she goes.

One of our oldest friends, and a veteran glassblower, will have a handcrafted selection of functional glass art for all you lovely souls to take home as souvenirs. Don't miss out on a chance to get 'em while the gettin' is goooooooood.
— DON'T BRING IT TO THE SHOW! — -This event will be 18+.
-No glass containers of any kind will be permitted.
-Illegal substances of any kind, and/or any paraphernalia pertaining to said substances, are also strictly forbidden at this event.
-NO UNDERAGE DRINKING will be tolerated. If you like to knock back a few with the boys before a long night of shimmy sham shayayin', you'd better make sure there aren't any punk kids trying to snatch your stash while you're stomping those dancing shoe's in organized, choreographed, dance.
-Don't bring your grandpappy's war relic! There are NO WEAPONS OF ANY KIND ALLOWED.
-Save the flying lessons for another time. Drones of any kind are not to be flown during the show. Helicopters, airplanes, hot air balloons, and bundles of helium balloons large enough to lift a grown man are also forbidden (it may sound ridiculous, but you know who you are).
-Leave the fireworks, and home-brewed pyrotechnics, at home.
-The only pets that will be allowed are certified service animals, which will workout well for our furry friends in case some jack-wagon ignores the previous rule.
-Due to the close proximity of the treeline to the camping area, there are NO GROUND FIRES ALLOWED. If you're bourgeoisie enough to bring a raised fire pit, I'm certain that your neighbors will bask in the communal glory of a campfire whilst you try endlessly to play the one song you kind of learned on guitar that one year at camp.
-This last one is redundant, as we plainly state this rule before every show, but there will be a zero tolerance policy in effect for any bangers, wangers, or skally wagged strangers.
-So, I forgot the Spaghetti policy. Due to society's exponential level of continual technological advancements, Hey Man Entertainment is constantly struggling to maintain an effective policy for the regulation of spaghetti at our events. We have taken great care, and suffered through much deliberation, to bring you the safest spaghetti guidelines that mankind has ever known.
1.) Each person wishing to enter the show with spaghetti must provide proof of at least 1/4 Italian sausage in their sauce.
2.) If you cannot afford sauce, a sauce will be appointed to you by a court of law.
3.) Each person will only be allowed a minimum of no less than 14 bindles, but no more than, 2 and 1/3 hefty hefty hefty bushels of COOKED spaghetti noodles. This will be measured via a well calibrated spaghtrometer station at the front gate.
4.) Once these requirements are satisfied, you may only eat your COOKED spaghetti through one of those crazy loopy straws. The same rule applies to the sauce, which should be interesting considering the Italian sausage requirements.
— YOU CAN BRING ALL OF THIS SHIT — (items listed below this point, not above)
-Your girlfriends, boyfriends, wives, or husbands (excluding family)
-Rain gear, because mother nature may try to fuck us, but she often forgets how much we like to be fucked.
-Portable power banks for charging your mobile devices. Just imagine how mad everyone will be if you don't have enough battery to obscure their view of the show while capturing your precious snapchats.
-Blankets, towels, or chairs in case you get the ole shaky knees from Stanky Birding too damn hard, and need to have a seat.
-Beer, liquor, box wine, and bagged milk (5 gallon only)
We will be hosting our own version of America's Most Wanted if you try to violate the legal age restrictions on any regulated substance (i.e. alcohol, tobacco, holy water).
-Totems are encouraged, but not if you're gonna half ass it. Show us what you learned from all those hours spent chillin' with Bob Ross. Don't be a mistake... be a happy accident.
-Bubbles of any kind.
-Art, art supplies, and anything in between. Express yourselves.
-Wacky Waving Inflatable Arm Flailing Tube Men.
