Interview with The Fame Riot as they bring nasty beats and truthful melodies to the stage out on their tour!

November 23, 2016

  We recently brought you our coverage of The Fame Riot as they performed in San Francisco along with Radkey at the Neck of the Woods. It was quite a show and what will be a rare treat to catch these amazing bands in an intimate venue setting. I completely believe that it won’t be long that they will be playing large capacity venues as they explode onto the music scene. The Fame Riot features brothers Liz and Shazam. They truly are incredible and dish up “feel good” music that has you dancing and letting go of any concerns or stress. Their music brings out a nostalgic vibe of 70’s glam/rock as well as the infectious style of 90’s alternative/dance, and a heaping side of modern day electro pop. You can’t just box them into any one genre, as they defy the boundaries and have successfully created their own unique style of music, complete with a dazzling fierce fashion style. We had a chance to chat with Liz and Shazam ahead of their performance at the Neck [Read More]

October 15, 2016

Our favorite Norwegian rockers, NiteRain are at it again! They are hell bent on keeping Rock N Roll alive and thriving. We need more bands with the dedication and determination that these rockers bring to the music scene. They not only give us KICK ASS high energy rock reminiscent of Sunset Strip in the 80’s, but they bring that same energy to the stage every time as they rock the crowds. They have just released their new single, Come Out and it is a fierce one. You can’t help but feel the smoldering remains of Rock come back to life as NiteRain ignites it and keeps the flame burning bright. Powerful 80’s inspired vocals, smoking guitars, raging solo, killer vocal chants, and heavy hitting drums to get you fired up with your fist in the air. Check out the new song here: The song is off their upcoming new album, Vendetta which is set for a release on November 5th. You can pick up the new song by heading over to iTunes here.
