A show celebrating the life of Michael Anzel, a dear friend and dedicated independent music supporter who suddenly passed away at the end of 2023. All proceeds will be going to Mike's family.


Ceschi Ramos’ music was created within the worlds of underground Hip Hop, Hardcore Punk & Folk. His version of songwriting may include machine-gun-speed-raps or emotive ballads inspired by Latin American troubadours.

He’s member of the crime wave band Codefendants along with Fat Mike of NOFX & Sam King of Get Dead.

First recognized in the early 2000s within the world of Lo-fi left field Hip Hop through his connections to Freestyle Fellowship , Sage Francis ,2Mex , Anticon & The Shape Shifters, Factor Chandelier , Ceschi eventually branched out into wildly diverse genres & made collaborative albums with folk punk hero Pat The Bunny, cloud hop pioneers Blue Sky Black Death & metal core band Dead By Wednesday.

As a 13 year old he started the fusion band Anonymous Inc with his brother David & eventually added Child Actor producer / keyboardist Max Heath. They joined forces with Tommy V, Xololanxinxo & Danny T Levin to form a band called Toca which was signed by Snoop Dogg’s management team for a development deal.

After a difficult experience with that label, Ceschi & David decided to start their own label, Fake Four Inc in 2008.

Over the last 2 decades he has toured North America, Europe, Asia & Australia, amassing a dedicated cult following worldwide.

Sage Francis is widely considered one of our generation’s greatest lyricists. His career derives mainly from gifted wordplay which creates vivid narratives to instigate as well as inspire, but since it often derives from an accumulation of public disdain and personal turmoil, it’s more about storming the castle than about watching the throne.

Dubbed as the “forefather of indie-hop,” Francis originally earned acclaim in the early 2000’s by winning the most highly coveted titles of the emcee battle circuit. With little to no funding, Francis sustained himself by selling his innovative “Sick of” mixtapes, all made by hand on the floor of his Providence, RI apartment. These were essentially bootleg compilations full of select recordings from his 12” vinyl singles, demo sessions, live performances and radio freestyles. The popularity of these tapes birthed Strange Famous Records (SFR); a meager, one-man operation in 1999.

Despite having no official distribution, Francis’ unique brand of music spread like wildfire via the advent of file sharing networks. This resulted in him attaining a massive cult-like following around the world, creating a demand for his albums and live performances at which point the bigger labels took notice. With his first studio album, Personal Journals (2002,) Francis daringly set aside the more boastful side of rap by catering to his poetic leanings and scathing socio-political commentary.

In 2005 Sage Francis was the first hip-hop artist signed to Epitaph Records and soon became one of the highest selling independent artists of his genre. Rather than abandon his day-to-day grind at SFR, he channeled all of his newfound resources into it, allowing the label to expand in staff as well as roster. Having fulfilled his contract obligations with Epitaph Records, Sage Francis has returned to releasing music independently as he gears up to defeat the odds. Once again.

“COPPER GONE”, Francis’ 6th studio album, dropped on June 3rd, 2014 via Strange Famous Records. This indie release managed to break Billboard’s Top 200 as well as iTunes top 5 for hip-hop in the US as well as in the UK. In 2016 Sage Francis was granted an honorary patronage by the prestigious Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland for his contributions to literature. Francis continues to tour internationally and is developing a new group project with B. Dolan called EPIC BEARD MEN, slated for a 2018 release.
