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 brings her Sad F**king Tour to San Francisco

March 5, 2020

  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]

Dirty Honey delivers high energy Rockin set at Slim’s in San Francisco!

February 27, 2020

Last night, the place to be in San Francisco was Slim’s! Dirty Honey rolled into town and delivered an epic high energy Rock N Roll set. The night kicked off with UK rockers, The Amazons. It was their first time playing in San Francisco and they definitely won over the crowd. Check them out here: The crowd was warmed up and ready to rock as Dirty Honey took to the stage. They brought their Rolling 7s headline tour to San Francisco and they did not disappoint! Their set was adrenaline fueled and non-stop rock from start to finish. They have performed at festivals and have opened for some heavy hitters, but they really shine when they are headlining their own show. They owned that stage and gave 150% to the crowd.  It reminded me of seeing Guns N Roses  or Van Halen the Sunset Strip in the late 70s/80’s. You just knew you were watching a band that was taking rock n roll by the horns and it was time for you to enjoy the [Read More]

Silverstein celebrate their 20 year anniversary live in Munich at the Backstage

February 16, 2020

The year 2000 didn’t only bring a new millennium, it was also the year the Canadian band Silverstein started their career. Fast forward to 2020, they celebrate their 20 year anniversary. No better way to do that, than tour and celebrate with the people that kept the band alive for two decades – the fans. Three out of the five dates have sold out pretty quick, the other two, Munich upon them, were pretty close to selling out. Judging by how packed the venue was, there couldn’t have been many tickets left for though.   For their European tour, they brought along Hawthorne Heights from Dayton, OH. They’re also around for 15 years by now and played in Germany several times. Naturally, they also drew their share of fans to the show.    Hawthorne Heights released their latest album ‘Lost Frequencies’ last November. Most songs the band played that night have actually been from their 2005 record ‘The Silence In Black And White’, like ‘Life On Stand-By’, ‘Niki FM’, ‘Ohio Is For Lovers’, ‘Silver Bullets’ [Read More]

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]
