Schellraiser 2023 will raise decibel levels — and money to give back to our community. We continue to support local nonprofits and community service organizations, and as the owners of the historic McGill Theater, we’re actively engaged in the process of restoring a long-abandoned cultural landmark in the heart of our downtown.

Steve Keene, revolutionary artist

Revolutionary artist
Steve Keene joins Schellraiser lineup.

Revolutionary hand painting artist Steve Keene, known worldwide as the most prolific painter in history, will join the Schellraiser Music Festival, creating an interactive live art show for patrons who can watch him create for the length of the festival.

Rob Sheffield from Rolling Stone called Keene Your Favorite Band’s Favorite Painter. Having created the now legendary “Wowee Zowee” album cover for indie rock legends Pavement, Keene has also become a well-known art collaborator for Silver Jews, Bonnie “Prince” Billy, The Apples in stereo and more and has been heralded by musicians and artists alike including the Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ Nick Zinner, Sonic Youth’s Lee Ranaldo and Thurston Moore; Michael Stipe and Shepard Fairey.

Keene, celebrating the universally praised behemoth release of “The Steve Keene Art Book,” has hand-painted over 300,000 pieces via his own hands over the last 30 years and selling the works dirt cheap. He will have a pop-up studio for people to watch him create up to fifty pieces at a time, usually painted in series of four or six-of-a-kind.
