Photo Gallery of SWMRS at BottleRock Napa and catch them at LIVE105 BFD this Saturday

June 5, 2017

  At BottleRock Napa we were excited to catch the SWMRS set. We have seen them a couple times before and they always give such an incredible high energy punk rock set. They got the crowd riled up with their angsty punk rock that captivated the crowd. The adrenaline was endless and they definitely gained thousands of more new fans that day. Their die hard fans were up front and center singing along with their fists in the air. It was spectacular to witness how this band has grown so much in the past couple years and they will continue to make huge strides in the music scene. Check out photos from their set by our Rockin Ryan: You can catch SWMRS this Saturday at LIVE105 BFD at Shoreline Amphitheatre. They will be playing on the Bud Light Festival Stage.

LIVE’s extraordinary set at BottleRock Napa took me back to my 20’s

June 4, 2017

A very personal highlight for myself at BottleRock Napa 2017 has to be seeing the original lineup of LIVE perform. They have reunited and the original lineup of Kowalczyk, guitarist Chad Taylor, bassist Patrick Dahlheimer and drummer Chad Gracey are in the midst of a World Tour. In addition to touring they will be releasing new music. Their set brought me back to the first time I saw them, back in a small nightlclub (possibly the DNA Lounge or Paradise Lounge) in San Francisco in the early 90’s. It was right before they entered into mainstream success and it was such an honor to catch them in the intimate environment. One thing was certain, over the years, I have held bands live performances to the standards of LIVE’s performance in that small venue.  They had energy, adrenaline and passion exuding with every note, beat and lyric. Fast forward to BottleRock Napa 2017 and LIVE’s performance had me reminiscing of that first show. They hit the stage and were non-stop with the energy. They impressed me all [Read More]
