Kelsy Karter delivers flawless high energy set out on her Pink Kink & Punk Tour with a stop in San Francisco

April 14, 2022

It was our first show in two years and we couldn’t have asked for a better return to the live music scene than Kelsy Karter and the Hot Trash. Kelsy  made a stop in San Francisco for her Pink Kink & Punk Tour at the Brick and Mortar Music Hall. This was definitely one concert that I won’t soon forget. The bar has been set high as Kelsy and her band truly delivered a flawless high energy set that had us knee deep in awe and craving more. We first heard Kelsy Karter with her single Out of Drugs in 2017 and have been hooked ever since. Over the years, we have continued to be held captive by her emotionally driven and soul baring vocals. But to finally catch her live performance takes it to a whole new level. The crowd at the Brick and Mortar were completely engulfed in her energy as she shared stories about her music and gave 150% on each song. Nothing was left unsaid or unsung as she gave everyone [Read More]

Raygun Rebels and Johnny Firebird live at the Backstage Munich (social distancing live)

July 22, 2020

It’s been a really long time, since live shows were part of our lives. At the beginning of 2020 we had lots of amazing tours to look forward to. By then the COVID-19 virus had already begun to spread. It affected all of our lives in many ways. People got sick, lost their jobs, schools closed and the kids had to study at home, while many people started working from home. The music industry was hit really hard by the virus. Tours were postponed or canceled and record releases were pushed back. Venues had to close because people weren’t allowed to go outside, let alone meet with others. Every country had its own strategy, depending on the number and increase of infections. In many countries, it seems that the measures that were taken are slowly paying back. A few weeks ago, they allowed smaller shows to happen in Germany, seated and with an appropriate distance between the people. By now they increased the numbers in Munich to 200 people indoors and 400 outdoors. Most venues [Read More]

  Olivia O’Brien made a stop in San Francisco and brought her Sad F**king Tour to the Regency Ballroom. It was quite a night as the fans arrived early to make sure to get up front and sing along with Olivia! The night kicked off with sets by  drumaq and Hey Violet. They got the crowd warmed up and adrenaline was racing through the crowd as Olivia took the stage. From the moment she arrived to the end, the crowd was singing along and completely “in the moment”. The crowd wasn’t filled with phones in the air, instead the fans were singing along and feeling the vibes that her music delivers. She sings from the heart and brings her music to life with her endless energy.  It was quite a night and you can check out photos of her set by our Rockin Ryan here: You can catch Olivia out on tour at the following dates:   In case you missed it, check out the video for Sad Together:   Check out some photos of [Read More]
