METALOCALYPSE – Animated Series (TV Show Review)

METALOCALYPSE – Animated Series (TV Show Review)

Brothers and sisters, the apocalypse is descended upon us. The Metalocalypse that is… So, I started watching this show titled Metalocalypse on recommendation from someone I find intriguingly fantastic. They’ve turned me onto a few things in recent times, and I’m better for it. This is just one in that long string of home runs. Astounded to discover that I’ve never heard of Metalocalypse, I was immediately told I had to check it out. The…

THE STRUTS Bring The Glory To Minnesota (Concert Review)

THE STRUTS Bring The Glory To Minnesota (Concert Review)

The Struts / The Glorious Sons / Spirit Animal First Avenue – Minneapolis, MN May 15th 2018 It’s not exactly a secret that rock needs a kick in the ass. To that end, America is getting that kick right now as the Struts are rolling through the states with The Glorious Sons who are quite possibly the most important band rock has had since the Rolling Stones. This is the type of one two punch…

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…

LÖVE RAZËR at Eastsides (Concert Review)

LÖVE RAZËR at Eastsides (Concert Review)

It is 7am Saturday morning.  I rarely write about a show this quickly, but I make an exception for the one that Löve Razër put on. Their show, having concluded a mere five hours ago, is still fresh in my memory. I usually allow a show to percolate for a few days, jotting things here and there, before I review it. However, this was too good to let it settle. Thankfully, my wife and I…

VINCE NEIL in Belleville, Ontario (Concert Review)

VINCE NEIL in Belleville, Ontario (Concert Review)

The last time I saw Vince Neil perform was in Los Angeles at the last ever Motley Crue show, New Year’s Eve, 2015. On this evening I am about to see him again, this time on a stage in a parking lot. It’s a long way from a sold out 3-night stand at the Staples Centre just 7 months ago. This is my first time at Empire Square, billed as an outdoor venue holding 3600…

Voivod at Call The Office (Concert Review)

Voivod at Call The Office (Concert Review)

Show Review: Voivod – Call The Office June 21, 2016 Finally, I have seen Voivod. This may surprise you, for all my ramblings regarding my taste of pop-sensible, hook-oriented hard rock that is more along the vein of sleaze and glam. I do have a love of heavy metal music. Such as Slayer, Megadeth, Anthrax and the other of the “big four”. Throw in Suicidal Tendencies and D.R.I, I am a skater after all, and…

Punk Night at Bucket of Blood: 63 Monroe

Punk Night at Bucket of Blood: 63 Monroe

Punk Night at the former “Bucket of Blood” the Old Vic Tavern. Ok I was committed to going to this after reading the above posted online. To be honest I was already making sure to be there as one of our favourite bands; 63 Monroe would be playing. I wasn’t committed to writing about the show, rather just plain old rockin’ out, alas a couple weeks later and my mind is still flashing back to…

Show Review: Full Year & 63 Monroe

Show Review: Full Year & 63 Monroe

Show Review: Full Year & 63 Monroe Date: April 16 – 2016 Location: Call the Office, London, ON It still thrills me when a show provides more than expected. There are a handful of bands I look forward to and if I go without for too long, well I just am not the unpleasant person I usually am. I get downright grumpy. I am a toddler in my terrible two’s for the parents in the…

Michael Schenker’s Temple of Rock @ The Ironworks, Inverness

Michael Schenker’s Temple of Rock @ The Ironworks, Inverness

Towards the end of last year, I was fortunate enough to score the job of reviewing the new album by Michael Schenker’s Temple of Rock, Spirit on a Mission. Not only did the album utterly blow me away but I also found out that the band was visiting Inverness, of all places, on the UK leg of the Spirit on a Mission tour. This was far too good an opportunity to pass up in my rock-starved…

Show Review: The Alcohollys at CTO

Show Review: The Alcohollys at CTO

Yes, like The Meister I admit to being on the older side of old. Never a bad thing it just means I appreciate seeing a show before my regular scheduled bedtime which is by the way when I am tired….being old that means earlier than most. That said, I can pull an all-nighter no problem if I need to, without anything other than good live music. This said, it sure was nice to see The…
