For over 20 summers now the Vans Warped tour has been the go to for traveling one day festivals featuring alternative and punk rock music.
With more and more multi-day festival popping up around the country it’s hard to figure out which ones are the real deal and which ones are merely just jumping on the band wagon. I am here to tell you that “Rock N’ Derby” is in fact the real deal.
Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and former Kiss guitarist Ace Frehley made a stop at the F.M. Kirby Center in Wilkes Barre, PA on April 15th, as part of a 12 show east-coast run promoting his latest album release titled “Origins Vol.1”
Despite it being a rather cold night in Syracuse the bands and a handful of dedicated fans filled the small multi use venue for a night of metal musings.
The night was part storytelling and part music as both set of performers aimed to provide the audience with a nights worth of entertainment.
I can’t wait until the show is in town again. Go get your tickets. GO!
The historic venue was packed to the rafters with energetic metals fans who were more than ready to live up to their “Killadelphia” name sake.
The night proved to be a great extension of the Christmas holiday as the night’s performance took you on a magical music adventure which made for a very enjoyable concert experience.
The bill which featured Black Fast, Nekrogoblikon, Havok and Battlecross was certainly not one for the faint of heart as all 4 bands commanded the crowd’s attention before pummeling them with a barrage of bombastic sonic landscapes.
Very apparent that Mr. Brockie left some extremely large latex and goo covered shoes to fill
After three and a half hours the bands said goodnight to an adoring crowd who gave them a much deserved ovation.
With a line up this impressive the energy outside was running high and as the night progressed each act did a great job building on that energy.
The unique surroundings proved to be the perfect setting for the annual music festival which featured 10 bands and a variety of local vendors
Throughout the bands 22 song set the band took time to show their appreciation for the crowds support throughout the numerous bouts of bad weather leading up to the bands performance.
There were certainly many highlights of the evening’s performance and the band did a spot on job of giving the fans their money’s worth
The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses was a delicious meal for the ears and eyes
As the set progressed both Ann and Nancy took turns at the mic introducing the numbers and giving some background on some of the more personal songs.
They bill themselves as “The Worlds’ Greatest Rock and Roll Band,” and last Saturday night the Rolling Stones more then lived up to that title…
Each time Rob Zombie takes the stage he does not disappoint and this night’s show was no different
(Against Me!)…the band sounded killer as always which made for a really great night of music.
The night proved to be a unique and up close experience that the Syracuse crowd seemed to really enjoy.
The first collaboration between Mayfield and Avett and hopefully not the last as the magic heard on the album was flawlessly created on stage
Though this may be John’s first tour as a solo artist he’s certainly no stranger to the stage as his 20 plus years of experience in music certainly showed as he worked the audience like a true veteran of the stage
This year was better than ever with an optional added day on the ship for the Superbowl Sail Away pre-party, but even with that addition, most survivors of this voyage at sea couldn’t get enough!
Despite weather putting a huge damper on the evening’s attendance the 3 bands that performed demonstrated nothing but sheer professionalism.
Musician “Party Hard”, TV Host, DJ, “King of Partying”
Band Members: Brandon Yeagley – Vocals and Harmonica; Chris Bishop – Guitar; Jake Figueroa – Bass Guitar and Paul Figueroa – Drums
Concert Review: “Redeemer of Souls Tour” with Judas Priest & Steel Panther @ Main Street Armory, Rochester, NY
If the tour is coming to your area make sure to get your tickets as soon as you can as there are very few bands out there right now who can rival the power and fury of the one and only Judas Priest
This packaged proved to be the exception as all the bands on the bill pulled out every available the stops to ensure those who came out this night got their money’s worth
The night much like the venue was packed full of great music that electrified the audience from the very start.
The event started at 6:45pm and went all the way to just past 11pm. Now if you ask me that is one hell of a concert and these fans are really getting their money worth
oyle and company proved that they are hell bent on domination and If the same power they brought to the tours opening night continues throughout the rest of the tour then nothing will stand in their way
Sporting one of the tours biggest main stage line ups to date the tour once again proved why they are the premier package for heavy metal in the summer time.
Though the bill featured 5 bands in total the old saying “quality over quantity” seemed to have been ignored
Sandy Hackett’s Rat Pack Show” is a must-see for anyone that wants to recapture those magical days of yesterday
I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve seen Slayer, but that rush of adrenaline before they get on stage never goes away.
Whether you just discovered Against Me! or you are a long time fan you need to get to one of the remaining shows on this tour
I do not think I have ever been to a concert with as much energy and excitement that this show
Besides being a talented actor…this guy can f**king sing!
Film director held a pre-screening with acts from the film’s soundtrack
He showed himself as the consummate professional and left no stone unturned.
I highly suggest going out to see the band as Pinheads and Animal Boys both new and old will not be disappointed.
Though it’s been 4 years since the bands last album and quite some time since the band has performed in the upstate NY area they certainly made up for lost time with the evenings stellar performance.
Concert Review: Carousel Kings, Better Off, Rust Belt Lights, Ideas, Pilgrims, Take Two – Elmira, NY
A great night of music and fun was had by all and Subculture Events can mark another great show off in their books.
These guys were very impressive and extremely talented. Its bands like this that make this job so rewarding.
Concert Review: “IMatter Fest and The Gate Presents” Phinehas, My Heart to Fear, Alive in the Dark, Praxia, Take Two
Though the crowd on hand was of the smaller size all the bands who performed that evening gave their all in an effort to put on a great performance.
Each song and each costume change throughout the concert seemed to depict a new character. The common thread throughout? Love.
Non-stop two hours worth of straightforward rock classics with instantly recognizable riffs that have been the band’s calling card for over 40 years.
Concert Review “Unity Tour 2013” with 311, Cypress Hill and G.Love & Special Sauce – Kansas City, Missouri
I have seen 311 more times than I can count on my fingers (unless I had Bill Cosby’s hands) and as always the only thing I can say after seeing them is AMAZING!!
Megadeth’s performance alone is worth the price of admission
This is one Package that this reviewer would love to open every day of the year. New Kids on The Block proved that they’ve still got the Right Stuff!
Paul and his most excellent band played for almost three hours, including encores.
For many of us music fans seeing one of your favorite artists live in concert is as good as it gets.
Though most of the sets were brief the night still proved to be a good time.
If you have a chance to check out the “Spreading the Disease Tour” make sure to get your tickets early, tease up your hair and throw on your favorite pair of spandex as this is a tour you won’t want to miss.
Upbeat, faster-paced songs often elicited mass audience participation through foot stomping and hands clapping.
All three acts put on a solid show belting out hit after hit which makes for a great night of music that the whole family can enjoy.
The show lacked the true spectacle of latter era Floyd mega-shows
