BUCKCHERRY, P.O.D., LIT, ALIEN ANT FARM – Gen-X Summer Tour Barrie, ON (Concert Review)

BUCKCHERRY, P.O.D., LIT, ALIEN ANT FARM – Gen-X Summer Tour Barrie, ON (Concert Review)

Ahhh the angst-filled rebellious teenage years. What a better way to reminisce and revisit them than through the music. Ok, maybe teenage was jumping the gun a bit….let’s say late teens and early 20’s. The shape of the musical landscape had changed. For all my complaining about those times, some really great bands did come out of them. Now let’s take 4 such bands and smash them all together on one bill dubbed the Gen-X…

FASTER PUSSYCAT, PARADISE KITTY & MAYBE NEVER – Rochester, NY (Concert Review)

FASTER PUSSYCAT, PARADISE KITTY & MAYBE NEVER – Rochester, NY (Concert Review)

Ahhh the road trip! Almost more exciting than the destination. I have a friend that I used to road trip to shows with, rival website editor Olivier from Sleazeroxx. Often road trips would bring us across the border into the US of A. A new city, new venue…always exciting. Somewhere we drifted apart. He got busy, I got busy. We call it the mutual breakup. Recently we have gotten back on the horse and the…

ARMORED SAINT – Symbol of Salvation Toronto (Concert Review)

ARMORED SAINT – Symbol of Salvation Toronto (Concert Review)

OMG! I’ve finally seen the light! The salvation I suppose one could say. It’s taken awhile but it finally happened. The albums never famously got along with me. I’ve seen Armored Saint 3 or 4 times in the past but still didn’t take to them with a rabid passion. So many friends speak so highly of them and I always wondered what I was missing. I mean, how can you go wrong with a vocalist like…

GIRLSCHOOL – Sweden Rock Festival 2018 (Spotlight Review)

GIRLSCHOOL – Sweden Rock Festival 2018 (Spotlight Review)

SWEDEN ROCK FESTIVAL has always been about the music. That’s what got me trekking across the oceans that first time six long years back now. I’ve not missed one since and don’t plan on it anytime soon. The magical music performances are what does it. Sometimes it’s a long defunct band enticed back to the stage by SRF organizers. But sometimes it’s just an old favorite ripping it up in a new setting. That was…

LITTLE CAESAR – Live In Sweden (Concert Review)

LITTLE CAESAR – Live In Sweden (Concert Review)

A mathematical thing. 30 years. Over 10 failed attempts. 4 different countries. What does it add up to? 1000’s of tears. Tonight, I cried. I openly wept warm salty tears of disbelief and happiness. After approximately 30 years and over 10 false starts, I finally witnessed Little Caesar live. Little Caesar hit the music scene in 1989 with their self-titled debut and the cover of Aretha‘s “Chain of Fools”. I’ve followed the band since then, almost 30…

LEGIONS OF METAL II FESTIVAL – Day One (Festival Report)

LEGIONS OF METAL II FESTIVAL – Day One (Festival Report)

LEGIONS OF METAL II FESTIVAL While obviously paramount, every festival is about more than the music. The social aspect and expanding your worldwide network of like-minded friends has to come into play somewhere as well. Also eating, that’s important too! This means at a jam-packed event like the Legions of Metal II Festival, it is inevitable that you will not see some of the acts on stage. Also, I did not enjoy every band I…

LEGIONS OF METAL II FESTIVAL – Pre-Party (Festival Report)

LEGIONS OF METAL II FESTIVAL – Pre-Party (Festival Report)

The 2018 Legions of Metal II Festival was a complete and total no-brainer for me. Last year I attended the event mostly because my beloved Lady Beast was on the roster. Who’s kidding who…if not for that, the event may have flown under my radar forever! 2017 brought some troubled times for me personally, but you can read my account of this much needed at the time musical getaway here: LEGIONS OF METAL 2017.

AUTOMAN.CA Local Pit Crew Check-In From Bovine Sex Club (Concert Review)

I went to visit an old friend tonight. The kind of friend that’s always there but sometimes you don’t see for years! Not from bitterness or neglect just different paths in life. In the early Decibel Geek days, I wrote two reviews of an awesome Canadian band called Automan.ca. Now it was time to revisit those days gone by.
