finale mas grande.

so we have come to the end of our yellow brick road, and this saturday, june 12, we are going out with a BANG. a doozie. and serious shindig.
it is the utmost fitting of lineups for our finale.

our very favorite band amongst a pool of amazing-ness out of the peninsula – phantom buffalo will grace the annex’s stage.

they’ll share the bill with amble down recording artist  the daredevil christopher wright. these two alone, under one roof, on the same night, is hard to top.  and yet, in the spirit of our last show, our awesome friend mat davidson — (of the low anthem) aka twain — stayed tried and true and has been a hogfarmer since way back. mr. twain will open the night with music from his ongoing solo project.

the crew @ hfs annex sends you a heartfelt muchimas gracias and a hug.  we also thank all our wonderful supporters, musicians, friends, family and beautifulness for such an amazing experience.

we are mindful that there is a ton going on around these parts on this june 12 date — but please give consideration to joining us for this very special event.

with heartfelt love, hogfarm says goodbye. but not forever.


“The Place Where The Gods Come and Go”


hey loves!


big, big changes on the horizon for hogfarm studios.  like a navajo sandpainting, the winds have blown across hfs annex at 140 main street downtown biddeford and it has run its course.  with utmost joy and unspeakable gratitude for what it has been, and for what it is, we are closing her doors.


we are in harmonious flux.


the next three shows will be the last chance to experience hfs annex in its current form. keep your eyes peeled and your ears to the ground for future incarnations.  as for now, c’mon out and shake a tail feather.

hogfarm audiences have created something really special in new england — we have heard it over and over again.  performers sought us out and keep coming back to perform for you.  that is an amazing thing and words cannot describe our gratitude for your support. you are beautiful.
