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



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 of The Woods. They shared stories of the tour and how Hectic Hector almost ran off with their tour merch, shared holiday memories and also told us that you can expect brilliant harmonies, guitar solos, nasty beats and truthful melodies out on this tour. Check out our interview with them here:

They definitely brought the fun to the stage and we can’t wait for them to return to San Francisco! Check out some photos of their set by our Rockin Ryan:
