GENERATION AXE Swings in Tokyo (Concert Review)

GENERATION AXE Swings in Tokyo (Concert Review)

It was a hot and smoky room as we filed into the Zepp Tokyo theater. Not to be confused with the Zepp DiverCity Tokyo theater just 1/2 a mile away, this one can be found under the giant Ferris Wheel on Tokyo Bay. The room was packed to the rafters – 800+ strong – and we all stood in anticipation. Suddenly there was a helpful announcement from the front – “This is a 3-hour show….

TEXAS HIPPIE COALITION Concert Review 2017 | Setlist

TEXAS HIPPIE COALITION Concert Review 2017 | Setlist

We do have video at the end of the article from the great Rockin’ Ron Runyon and more on our YouTube channel HERE. “I don’t care what Manson said, Rock ain’t dead, it’s just in rehab.” Texas Hippie Coalition (THC) destroyed…

GREEN DAY Budweiser Gardens London, Ontario (Concert Review)

GREEN DAY Budweiser Gardens London, Ontario (Concert Review)

Having waited 25 years to see Green Day meant my expectations were extremely heightened. Combine that with attending the show with our son who is as big a fan as I, made for some major expectations from both of us. We began by having dinner before the show and like any smart establishment near the venue, they played quite a bit of Green Day. Good start! Upon entering The Bud there was a massive line…

A Chat with the SARACEN Guys (Audio Interview)

A Chat with the SARACEN Guys (Audio Interview)

I  recently had the great opportunity to catch a show by NWOBHM heroes Saracen at the Brofest Festival in Newcastle, UK. Read the review of the gig here! Saracen rarely play live and the albums are far in between. The band did a highly successful gig at the Keep It True Festival in Germany a couple of years back. They were scheduled to play last year’s Brofest but had to cancel due to illness within the…

HAWKWIND – Concert Review (The Neon, Newport)

HAWKWIND – Concert Review (The Neon, Newport)

‘Twas a wet and windy night in the Welsh wild frontier town of Newport when the legendary trippy rockers Hawkwind played to a packed house at new venue The Neon. This was the first gig I had been to in too long and I went with an old man’s wariness of what may have been a waste of good sleeping time.  However, it proved to be a good gig with plenty of life and humor….

TOKYO BLADE Close Brofest on a High Note (Concert Review)

TOKYO BLADE Close Brofest on a High Note (Concert Review)

When asked about NWOBHM, thoughts are immediately turned to the likes of Iron Maiden, Saxon, Tygers of Pan Tang and Girlschool. A name that should have been on most fans lips would be Tokyo Blade. The band has shared stages with the likes of Metallica, Dio, Blue Öyster Cult, and Scorpions.  On this night Brofest, Newcastle, UK had “the Blade” as the festival headliners and they had the honor of closing the festival on Sunday. Tokyo Blade…

Mockstrocity Tour 2017 – First Avenue

Maybe rock has found it’s new movement.  Mock-N-Roll.  The Mockstrocity 2017 Tour features parody tribute bands.  The Black Sabbath meets McDonalds Mac Sabbath.  Nedal-core band Okilly Dokilly in which the members portray the wardrobe of Homer Simpson‘s neighbor Ned Flanders and Metalachi.  Which of course is a mariachi band performing mostly metal songs.   And for those of us in Minneapolis were given a special treat being that it was the only stop to also feature Metallagher, a…
