THFL Presents Warhawks, Live At The Spaceship

The Higher Frequency Live

Circling the cold outer depths of your solar system there are many forgotten rocky remnants, a few of which recently humans have discovered and catalogued. But deep in those distant dregs await a daunting array of dark and undiscovered detritus and debris; with a past even darker than that of the void in which they exist. Whispers of an ancient cataclysmic war and of untold destruction, one that predates most life on your planet, are isolated only to the dreariest dens of Deimos. Indeed, the violent events of this excursion are what led to the vast proliferation of just about every living species in your solar system, as all manner of microbial and bacterial organisms were thrust outward into the icy vacuum of space, preserving them for whatever final destination awaits them.

Even today, the Ancient Scholars that tend the infinite vault of universal knowledge rarely discuss the events that surround what happened so long ago, doing so only in utmost secrecy. The human race will never be able to fully comprehend the true nature of their past, as they are but a misgiven byproduct that emerged from the scant remains of a once glorious existence. Life on Earth in truth is but a sad reminder of the untimely loss of but many wonderful and unique creatures, some that had even endured more than two billion of years of fruitful evolution prior. What little history remains suggests this war did indeed fall on the side of nobility and justice but at a great cost. As such there were no heroes in this battle, and many of those that valiantly fought, had scattered to the farthest reaches possible to avoid facing the awful truths of their well-intended efforts.

However, in all the remaining legends that have been uncovered, all speak of the return of the ultimate band of warriors known only from loose translations as “Warhawks”. It is understood that these “Warhawks” randomly appeared in a furious blast of punk infused energy, thrashing through the tyrannical and corrupted forces of diabolical despots, aimlessly venturing through on a once in an eon interdimensional tour of the septaversal segment of which you reside. It seems by cosmic chance, that this was the turning point in that awful conflict, though ultimately the catalyst for the resulting devastation that came thereafter. In a flash those known only as “Warhawks” were gone, following a galactic highway known only to them. (There is a rumor about obscure text regarding some past event known only as Gainesville Fest) A great many generations have waited to see if they will return and prove the legends true.

Imagine our surprise to uncover a punk bank here on Earth also called ‘Warhawks”. Could it be? After all these millennia? Is this indeed the long-awaited return of the intergalactic band from the ancient legends? That is what we intend to find out after we abduct and subject them to our rigorous routines of raucous research. They have proven hard to pin down thus far, but after many months we have finally tracked them down to their secret location.

Please welcome to our virtual venue, the one and only “Warhawks” (Not to be confused with some other New Jersey band called THE Warhawks) We shall test their mighty thrash forces and see if they truly are the stuff of legends; and we are about 65% sure they are!!! (That other Warhawks band certainly wasn’t up to the test, they melted immediately) However we will require your humanly assistance for this one. With your ancient lineage and unique genetic connection, we cannot be the sole arbiters of this task of proving penultimate punk perturbations, for the stakes are far too great. Five of your earthly dollars can be deposited at , in return you will obtain a front row seat to the most ultimate show you will ever see in a million lives. You shall also serve as protection in the form of a buffer from the potentially lethal forces that may be unleashed upon us all.

It is also highly advisable to tip your art tenders at Neglecting to do so may open additional interdimensional rifts that lead to horrific cosmic mishaps, possibly even greater magnitudes of abandoned asteroid fields, etc, etc, which nobody wants…. Right…?

THFL Presents Beefus, Live At The Spaceship

The Higher Frequency Live

As fall creeps in and society collectively blocks from memory the last two years of existence, we thought is was wise to remind humans that life can be quite fragile and society is always teetering on the brink of total chaos and collapse. The only thing stopping it is the belief that everything will be okay in time and that the ends seemingly justify the means.

But do not believe the veil of smiles from those perched above, they lie in wait to prey upon the weak and feast from what is left from the hunt. Humanity is but a means to an end for those powerful enough to rule this planet.

There is legend, of one mighty force that may be able to withstand and conquer those that prey upon disenchanted souls. And so we go in search of the fiercest unfurling of pure anti-rock fury we have ever fathomed. Known as none other than, Beefus!!! If the legends are true, be prepared to have your eyes melted by the hottest guitar licks ever played and the rest of your body disintegrates back into the universe from which it came.

While this experience sounds frightening at first, rest assured you will be lifted into a higher plane of consciousness where you will no longer need that old husk of human flesh you called a body. Your new form will be vastly superior and will break the will of those that try to empower you.

Sounds too good to be true? Maybe it is and maybe it isn’t. Only one way to find out I guess. Head over to , grab a ticket and see for yourself what lies in wait. I’m pretty sure either way you’ll be glad you did. This unique mixture of human and otherworldly beings is a great example of the ability of music to bring together beings from many different galaxies!!

Please remember to tip your art tenders at Your species reliance on money makes defending local arts quite difficult indeed. Your support helps keep this all alive and we love you for it!!

THFL Presents Jason Vargas & The Apollos Returns To The Spaceship

The Higher Frequency Live

Seems the planet Earth has done well using their musical energy reserves. Much good has come from persistence during our long absence from your star system. Indeed there are many worlds we help bring musical energies to; in fact there would be many a great Earthly bards that would appreciate the musical ring of planets of the Kepler star system that exist solely to the universal arts of musical mastery. Their tunes are so powerful their energy waves propagate throughout the universe, sometimes finding their way into the minds of musicians untold light years away. Your famed Mozart was indeed one of these unique musical antennas tuned into the mastery of which we speak.

It is our study of this phenomenon that once again brings us back to your star system, as we once again bring you the refreshingly talented band Jason Vargas and the Apollos. After their first abduction on board our spaceship and our continued research into their powers, we believe they may as well be a conduit to the greats from afar. There is something to their style that deserves a deeper look into the connection they are channeling when deep in groove galaxy.

We encourage the rest of you humans to come join us in our research into this amazing astral connection that is a sight very rare indeed. If you have researched at all the history of what you refer to as Kepler 10291683 then you know exactly what I mean. This is truly some exciting stuff.

You can find your portal here to aid in our research, a small stipend of $5 helps us stimulate this salient study for a successful culmination of cosmic Keplan composition.

Please also remember to tip your art tenders, your support is vital in keeping this important research going into the deepest reaches of the universe.

THFL Presents Blake Thomas, Live At The Spaceship

The Higher Frequency Live

Emerging from the Ghost Wars, The Spaceship is due for some recuperation. At the same time humanity is recuperating as well. Daily life still seems like a quasi- dream state; as routines start slowly shifting back to something we once thought as familiar but now seem strangely foreign. The veil of society lifted but for a brief moment, but then quickly hidden behind layers of high tech obscurities.

Humanity will need all of the energy it can get to face the changing landscapes. This is a great time to recollect and sit with friends new and old alike, and relish the company of great music that can be created amongst such great friends.
Our next artist will provide the inspiration to delve deeper connections with those around you. Help form a sense of community that is desperately needed for most to maintain high spirits and healthy outlooks.

Please welcome to our spaceship the benevolent bard Blake Thomas. Blake will be bringing a magical set of fine Folk Americana medleys with his band from Duluth Minnesota. Come watch this amazing show and be filled to the brim with positive musical energies that will help you weather through this odd existence.

america is a ghost in a void bent into the sum of our mistakes

Monsta Click Entertainment 420 Showcase 2022

Monsta Click Ent

Once again, we partner with Madison’s own Monsta Click Entertainment to hot box the Earth’s atmosphere with stanky smoke, and crazy hot beats in celebration of the all mighty marihuana.

Most humans are unaware that this plant exists in many places outside of your solar system, and has been a staple of an untold amount of civilizations. It was brought here as soon as Earth’s atmosphere was stable enough to support it; and was used by inhabitants of this planet well before humans evolved. Any attempts to control and eradicate it are generally seen as uncool and most advanced species will shy away from planets that do. So if you want us aliens to come back and chill with y’all you better start making some changes in your leaders.

Fortunately not all humans are lame, Monsta Click Entertainment knows what’s up and is here is represent your civilization with some amazing and talented performers in honor of the most glorious holiday of 4/20.

This will be a free show so come on by our website and watch this awesome performance while you celebrate in style.
