The End Of Summer 2017 Part Two – GRAND ROCKTEMBER V

The End Of Summer 2017 Part Two – GRAND ROCKTEMBER V

While Grand Rocktember may cater to an audience with a median age that skews a bit north of your average festival, the second day starts largely the same.  The first people on scene are a mix of those who aren’t hungover, those who are still drinking and the event crew.  Walking in we were treated to another all female tribute band.  This time it was Iron Maidens.  Another uncomfortably spot on interpretation from the singer. …

KXM Ups the Ante With Scatterbrain (Album Review)

KXM Ups the Ante With Scatterbrain (Album Review)

I really liked KXM‘s first self-titled album and was looking forward to this second release, Scatterbrain. My preference is to not listen to single tracks as they’re released but to get the entire experience, track by track, in order. The first track – the title track – was also the first single, so I got to start where everyone else did. I’ll be honest, I didn’t get it on the first listen, but the more I listen,…

Lynch Mob at Pickle Park Fridley, MN

Lynch Mob at Pickle Park Fridley, MN

As a teen in the 80’s my hands existed for two purposes.  One of those was playing guitar.  As much as KISS may have been the reason I wanted a guitar, George Lynch was the reason I wanted to play guitar. It wasn’t just his playing I coveted.  If he wore Nike hightops, I wore Nike hightops.  If he had a red t-shirt that just said “Balls” I wanted a red t-shirt that said “Balls”.  Along…
