Cory Wells live at Club Cord in Munich with Luke Rainsford

January 22, 2020

California based solo musician Cory Wells released his first full-length record ‘The Way We Are’ late last year. I found out about this artist through a suggestion on youtube. The intensity and feelings in his songs blew me away back then. We had the chance to cover one of his first performances in Germany, when he opened for Dashboard Confessional last November. Check here for our review and some pictures of that extraordinary show: https://musicjunkiepress.com/acoustic/an-all-acoustic-night-with-dashboard-confessional-and-cory-wells-at-the-hansa-39-feierwerk-in-munich/ The show in November was sold out before it was known that Cory Wells would play as well, so fans of him didn’t really have the chance to go to that show. Right around that time he announced his own headliner tour through Europe though with stops in Germany, Belgium and the UK. Munich was also on the list, so we took the chance to cover this very intimate set of Cory Wells and Luke Rainsford in a very small club in Munich’s inner city called Club Cord. Originally Lizzy Farrell should have been part of the tour, but she [Read More]

PHOTO GALLERY: Greta Van Fleet delivers unparalleled performance in San Francisco

October 3, 2019

As we are still reeling from covering the Greta Van Fleet show in Las Vegas, our exhilaration has been lifted to a new level with GVF’s performance in San Francisco. (If you missed it, check out our photo gallery and review of the Las Vegas Sept. 27th show here). Last night, we were excited to catch GVF perform in our hometown to a massive crowd at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium. Fans lined up early, some arrived in the wee hours of the morning, ready to ride the rail of today’s hottest rock band. After you have experienced a Greta show, you fully understand wanting to be right up close and personal, to experience the energy and charisma that the band delivers to their fans. But fear not, whether you are riding the rail or kicking it in the back, you are treated to one hell of a ROCK SHOW when Greta Van Fleet performs. And when it’s over, all you are thinking is, “When is the next show?” Last night was no exception as [Read More]

Maggie Rogers; Beauty and Light personified, delivers spellbinding performance at Greek Theater

September 24, 2019

Last Friday evening at the Greek Theater in Berkeley was the place to be.  The majestic setting of the Greek Theater was the perfect backdrop for the beauty and dazzling performance by Maggie Rogers. We first saw Maggie Rogers perform at Outside Lands just two years ago and we knew she would be well on her way to the top. Selling out the Greek Theater, no problem for her. There is no stopping the effervescent and mesmerizing Maggie Rogers. Show after show, she exceeds our expectations and delivers spot on spellbinding performances. Her vocals captivated the audience and you could feel a positive energy race through the crowd. If I could compare it to anything, it would be to that one moment in How The Grinch Stole Christmas – that the Grinch’s small heart grew three sizes that day.  At a Maggie Rogers concert, you can’t help but have your heart grow. You feel a positive energy that grabs a hold of you and the songs become the life line to your soul.  From the first song to the [Read More]

Combichrist, Soulfly and Rave The Requiem live in Munich at the Backstage August 7th, 2019

September 21, 2019

After an extensive tour through the US in April and May 2019 with over 40 dates, Combichrist went over the great pond to continue their ‘One Fire’ tour through Europe and the UK in June, July and August 2019. We were lucky to catch the band live in Munich on August 7th. It was the only double-headliner show the band did with Soulfly, well-known through it’s frontman Max Cavalera (ex-Sepultura). Opening act was a Swedish band called ‘Rave The Requiem’. While unknown to most of the people, they could easily win over the crowd. Their performance was very energetic with an amazing female vocalist Jenny Fagerstrandh. Her voice complements the bands vocalists’ and guitarists’ Filip Lönnqvist. Him also being the founder of the band. RTR released their latest record ‘FVNERAL’ in October 2018. Make sure to check them out live, if you get a chance. Combichrist and Soulfly as co-headliners, a strange combination one might think….. When the date was first announced, it was only Combichrist, Soulfly have been added to the line-up later on.
