The biggest Halloween party in town! Costume contest, drink specials, music by reggae/funk band 8 Minutes to Burn, electronica by Conscious Kalling, and Taos' own DJ T. Rust!
8 Minutes to Burn is a funk based jam band with deep reggae roots that fuses multiple unexpected genres like ska and dub into the music they play. Their deep love for New Orleans funk, The Grateful Dead and roots reggae has been distilled into a lush original sound that always starts a dance party. Kevin Wayne adds depth to the music with conscious and poignant lyrics that shine light on the dark issues of today. 8 Minutes to Burn has played shows and festivals with such acts as Dumpstaphunk, Junior Reid, March Fourth Marching Band, Delta Nove, The B-side Players, Josh Fischel of Bargain Music, The Super Villains, and B-Foundation, plus many more!
Conscious Kalling isn't making music for the mainstream. He makes it for the seekers looking beyond the vail of popular culture. "I make music inspired by underground cultures in the world around me," he says, "Primal rhythms that move the soul and expand the mind" Coming from the desert southwest, his sound combines elements of glitch hop, dub step, and trap music with tribal rhythms and instruments from across the globe. The result is something unique he describes as "Desert Music."
