IN 2003 EMISSIONS FROM THE MONOLITH GOES INTO ITS FIFTH YEAR AT NYABINGHI IN YOUNGSTOWN, OH

Memorial Day Weekend: Friday, 5/23 - Sunday, 5/25, Three Days, 35+ Bands confirmed acts include Alabama Thunderpussy, Halfway to Gone, Dixie Witch

Youngstown, OH - Today, festival producer, Greg Barratt announced the fifth annual Emissions from the Monolith music festival. The festival lasts three days over Memorial Day Weekend, from Friday, May 23rd through Sunday, May 25th, 2003. The festival's home remains the rock club, Nyabinghi which is located in Youngstown, OH at 1229 Salt Springs Road, approximately one hour outside of Cleveland and an hour from Pittsburgh, PA.

Emissions from the Monolith has been touted as one of the most important up-and-coming rock music festival by MTV News, Alternative Press, High Times Magazine, Metal Maniacs, Stonerrock.com, and KNAC.com. The event is also featured annually by the local media including Cleveland Free Times, Cleveland Scene, In Pittsburgh, Cleveland Plain Dealer and Warren Tribune Chronicle. Last year's event poster was created by controversial pop artist King Velveeda (www.cheesygraphics.com) and in 2001, San Francisco-based pop artist Alan Forbes (best known for creating the latest Offspring album art as well as the Black Crowes’ trade mark magpie logo) created the festival poster.

"Emissions has been growing by leaps and bounds, we expect tickets to sell out well in advance this year" Barratt remarks. Stoner rock, heavy rock and metal bands aspire to showcase new material at the festival, as well as meet up with fans and scene journalists from around the country and from around the world (last year Orange Goblin, from England performed). Barratt expects a capacity crowd this year. He believes he may soon have to find a larger venue to accommodate the growing popularity of an event that he conceived of as a way to have all of his favorite stoner, doom, heavy rock and psychedelic bands play in a comfortable environment amongst like-minded musicians and fans.

Music critic Jason Bracelin (Cleveland Scene and Free Times editor) aptly describes the festival as "Three days of piledriving reefer rock in a Youngstown roadhouse that looks as if it were pulled from the reccesses of David Lynch's scrambled brain, Emissions is a THC tour de force. (Cleveland Scene, 5/23/02)." Lollipop enthuses "Can't say enough good things about the tone of the event; nary a harsh word from anyone. Woodstock '69? Dude, you shoulda been at Emissions ''02."

This year’s festival will feature performances by over 35 bands including Throttlerod, Glasspack, Rwake, Volume, Cable, Halfway to Gone, Disengage, Stinking Lizaveta, Men of Porn, Party Dream, Rebreather, Dragon Green, Sofa King Killer, Alabama Thunderpussy, RPG, Tummler, Dixie Witch, Burnout, The Rubes, Kung Pao, Abdullah, Fistula, Keelhaul, Penance, Weedeater, Hidden Hand, All Night, and JJ Paradise Players Club, who have already confirmed. For a continuously updated list of confirmed acts please visit the festival's website.

Tickets will go on sale by 01/05/03, online at www.emissionsfromthemonolith.com or at the venue. Last year the venue sold-out every night, this year Barratt expects tickets to sell-out again. Sponsorship opportunities are available (past sponsors include High Times, KNAC.com, Metal Maniacs, etc.), contact Ilka Pardiñas at flypr@flypr.net for more information. Merchandise booth space is also available, contact Greg Barratt at tonedeaf@neo.rr.com.

Greg Barratt is the owner of both the venue, Nyabinghi, and the booking agency, Tone Deaf Touring, based in Youngstown, OH. Please visit Emissions from the Monolith V online at www.emissionsfromthemonolith.com for up to the minute information on bands that have been confirmed to perform.
