November 23, 2016

One band I am truly thankful for…. is Radkey! Holy shit, they have blown me away and I am hooked on them.  We recently brought you the coverage from their San Francisco show at Neck of the Woods with The Fame Riot. The night was great and Radkey  WOWed us with their stellar set. They are truly a punk rock phenomenon that has to be heard! I must tell you, that I was grinning ear to ear from start to finish watching them perform. It has been a long time for me since I stood in amazement as I knew I was witnessing this incredible band, and I might not have the chance to experience them in such an intimate venue again.

October 31, 2016

Being that it is a Monday, I wanted to give you some great new music to help get you through the week. How about the new EP, Nerves, from Toronto punk rockers, The Flatliners. They have just released  a new EP/7” vinyl called Nerves this past Friday, on Dine Alone Records. Check out the EP:   Vocalist/Guitarist Chris Cresswell comments, “For the first time in about a decade, we spent the majority of the year off the road and at home in 2015. Even though to most it must have seemed like we were laying low for most of the year, 2015 became a year of constant inspiration and ever evolving scenery and surroundings. There was a refreshing, cooling feeling that came over the task at hand and the craft we’ve honed. And with ‘Nerves’ we invite you to dip your toes in the deep end of the pool.” Check out their upcoming tour dates below and visit their social media sites: Nov 16 – Cleveland, OH – Agora Ballroom (w/Bouncing Souls) Nov 17 – [Read More]
