GOODBYE JUNE / BADFLOWER – Triple Rock Social Club

GOODBYE JUNE / BADFLOWER – Triple Rock Social Club

For those familiar with my writing for Decibel Geek or listeners of the Cobras & Fire Podcast may be aware of my affinity for some of rock’s rising stars like Goodbye June and Badflower. So when it was announced those two bands were embarking on a co-headlining tour across a pretty sizeable stretch of the United States, it should come as no surprise I was pleased to see a tour stop 15 minutes from my…

EDGUY Live at Sweden Rock Festival 2017

EDGUY Live at Sweden Rock Festival 2017

Sweden Rock Festival, the greatest festival in the world, always has so many bands that I personally want to see each year. Even though it is only my second year going, you can look at the past lineups and see why it is the best festival around. Last year I saw some bands I never thought I would see. This year, maybe not as many bucket-listers, but one band sits on the top for me this…

HELL’S BELLS + WHISKEY LIES at The Globe, Cardiff (Concert Review)

HELL’S BELLS + WHISKEY LIES at The Globe, Cardiff (Concert Review)

“It was one of those nights, when you turned off the lights and everything came into view“…It was actually a crushing night where two great bands tore down a sold out hot sweatbox of a venue in Cardiff (UK) called The Globe. The two bands couldn’t have been different, in that one, Whiskey Lies, are a local rock band playing originals and Hells Bells are a veteran tribute act for the mighty AC/DC.  Regardless, this…

GOTTHARD at Sweden Rock Festival 2017

GOTTHARD at Sweden Rock Festival 2017

Heading to the main festival stage to see my favorite band of Sweden Rock 2017 some memories flooded my head. Here is a band that I thought I would never see live.  Thanks to Monsters Of Rock Cruise they brought Gotthard on for 2 shows in 2016 where I had the chance to be their photographer for their fan photo experience. It was great hanging out with the band for an hour and a half. Trying…

RETRO-HOMA Strikes Again! (Rocklahoma Review)

RETRO-HOMA Strikes Again! (Rocklahoma Review)

So, 2017 marked my second straight visitation to Rocklahoma Festival in Pryor, Oklahoma. And for the second straight year, it was an exceptionally good time. Again, as last year, I came away with a few “new” bands that I’m looking forward to checking out. As with last year, I drank a lot of beer. Not really my fault there. See, in Oklahoma you have to drink double what you would normally as it’s considered a…

Official LEGIONS OF METAL Day 2 (Festival Report)

LEGIONS OF METAL FESTIVAL 2017 – Final Day All good things must eventually come to an end. If you’re going out, why not do it in style? That’s what took place on the final day at the inaugural Legions of Metal Festival. The longest day of the event, we got under way around 2 pm. There was a rooftop patio again and also a brunch buffet offered, but I failed to attend these this day….

Official LEGIONS OF METAL Day 1 (Festival Report)

And here we go for the official first day of the inaugural Legions of Metal Festival at Reggie’s Rock Club in Chicago. Last night’s pre-party got things going but today promised more face melting metal. Overall a fantastic day, but here and now I express my apologies for the crappy cell phone pics. Legions of Metal Festival Day 1, (Friday, May 19, 2017) Perhaps learning my lesson from yesterday’s pre-party, there would be no rooftop…

Meister Pre-Parties For The LEGIONS OF METAL (Festival Report)

Meister Pre-Parties For The LEGIONS OF METAL (Festival Report)

With the pressures of daily life and responsibilities of adulting piling up heavily, I wasn’t totally sure I’d be making the event. But Metal prevailed overall and off to The Legions of Metal Festival in Chicago I went. Legions of Metal is a traditional metal festival born out of the ashes of the Ragnarokkr Festival. OK, confession time….I have no idea what that is, but they tell me it’s where Legions of Metal was born….

T’was The Night Before Sweden Rock…

T’was The Night Before Sweden Rock…

T’was the night before Sweden Rock and all through the town no one was quiet…certainly not The Meister. Hard to believe that it’s year five! My fifth excursion from Toronto to Solvesborg for Sweden Rock Festival. Perhaps the single greatest music event held on land (nothing beats the floating party that is Monsters of Rock Cruise). Four days, Five stages, over 80 bands, many that will never hit North American soil. Music lovers from around…
