Fresh from their UK tour, Spacehog will create this one time concert experience entitled LIVE ON EARTH. Spacehog recently released its fourth album, As It Is On Earth, teaming up once again with producer Bryce Goggin, who helmed the band’s million-selling debut album, Resident Alien. Spacehog vocalist, bassist and chief songwriter Royston Langdon is co-founder of this event. His first professional songwriting assignment was for a David Lynch film, Nadja, and he actually held onto the check, signed by the famed filmmaker and director before finally cashing it. The band fully supports the work of the David Lynch Foundation and the First Responders Initiative as well as the practice of Transcendental Meditation.
