The Wood Brothers (2/1, Philadelphia)

Propelled by little more than strong word of mouth and a decade-and-a-half worth of stunningly impressive albums, The Wood Brothers were able to pack Philly’s 2,500 capacity Filmore on a recent Saturday night for an enthusiastic show that was as close as many will come to a religious experience.

The Filmore is more than twice the size of the Union Transfer where the band played less than two years ago. The age-agnostic crowd features everyone from aging punk rockers to jam band fans, all there to hear an hour-and-a-half of perfectly-crafted Americana, mixed with folk and blues. The set kicked off with “Alabaster,” the first track of the band’s latest effort, Kingdom In My Mind.

There were a handful of other new songs trotted out that night, like ‘Little Bit Sweet” – already an audience favorite, despite coming out just weeks before. But for the most part, the band churned through an almost greatest hits of fan favorites, like “Postcards From Hell” and “I Got Loaded,” both met with near rapturous response. The also tossed in a remarkable cover of the traditional “Little Liza Jane”.

The trio, comprised of brothers Chris and Oliver Wood, along with drummer/multi-instrumentalist Jano Rox, played a blistering set that didn’t let up until the last chord rang out as the band left the stage. It seems odd that a group that gets seemingly little airplay and is name checked only by other music fans has managed to generate such a massive national following. But after a show like this one, it’s easy to see why.

Cracker with Camper Van Beethoven (Philadelphia, PA, 1/27)

Four stars

Springsteen’s got nothing on David Lowery… well, at the very least, Lowery would have no problems keeping up with Bruce’s legendary reputation for on stage stamina.

Lowery played two complete sets to a full capacity crowd at Philadelphia World Café Live recently, first playing a career-spanning set from Camper Van Beethoven and then taking the stage with an almost entirely different line up about 20 minutes later for an even more raucous set playing songs from his post-CVB band Cracker.

What’s remarkable, is that the both shows were impressive enough to capture fans of both bands, with the audience hitting peak excitement just a few songs into CVB’s act and keeping that enthusiasm up until the final song in Cracker’s set. It helps, that both bands stuck to fan favorites, with Lowery and his first group starting off the night with the cult “hit” “Take the Skinheads Bowling.”

Lowery self-effacing as ever apologetically announced every guitar solo with a sheepish “Here’s another guitar solo” before ripping out fantastic guitar god-level licks. The CVB set included a solid Status Quo cover (“Picture of Matchstick Men”), as well as an impressive instrumental, “S.P 37957 Medley” that included Zeppelin’s ‘Kashmir” segueing into “Hava Naglia”.

After a surprisingly brief break, Cracker guitarist Johnny Hickman played an acoustic song off his new album and then Lowery and his drummer came back on stage, joined by the rest of the members of Cracker for an equally impressive run through of more than a dozen songs. The set began with a great version of Jerry Garcia’s “loser” that thankfully did not sound like a Garcia song and immediately went into the stellar “King of Bakersfield,” off of Cracker’s last album.

As Cracker was the more well known of Lowery’s two bands and as a result had more radio “hits,” they naturally had more crowd singalongs that night, including “Teen Angst (What The World Needs),” “Low” and a truly remarkable version of “I Want Everything”. Through it all, Lowery showed remarkable endurance throughout the night, bringing joy to a crammed room full of aging cynical Gen Xers.

Megadeth and Lamb Of God Release Summer 2020 Tour Dates

Two of the biggest bands in heavy metal – Megadeth and LAMB OF GOD – will be joining forces on a co-headline tour across North America this year, presented by SiriusXM. And to add to the firepower of this already formidable tour, Trivium and In Flames are joining, making this THE must-see heavy music package of the year. Tickets will go on general sale Friday, February 14 from Livenation.

Megadeth, fueled by Dave Mustaine’s triumphant return to the stage following his diagnosis and recovery of throat cancer, will embark on their first North American tour since 2017. Speaking on the epic announcement, Megadeth’s leader and frontman, Dave Mustaine says, “Hello me! I’m back again, better than ever and coming to a town near you with Lamb of God, Trivium and In Flames. If you want high octane metal madness this is the tour for you.”

LAMB OF GOD released their first new music in five years last week with the single “Checkmate.” The track is the first to be released from the band’s self-titled eighth studio album, due out May 8, which is one of the most anticipated and important metal records of the year. Commenting on their upcoming co-headline run, Mark Morton, lead guitarist of LAMB OF GOD, adds, “The world has never needed heavy more than it does today and top to bottom, this tour delivers! LAMB OF GOD has toured with and been friends with all of these bands for years, but for all of us to be on the same bill is something extra special. Come early and stay late. This is THE metal tour of the year.”

Trivium’s Matt Heafy adds, “We are happy to be a part of the biggest real metal tour of the year. This tour is the main event and represents heavy metal and the culture that goes with it.“

With In Flames singer, Anders Fridén stating, “We were honored to be asked to join this package. We were actually supposed to take this summer off, but of course we couldn’t say no. After playing shows with all of these guys for years, 2020 is going to feel like a kick ass reunion. See you on the road, Jesterheads!”

Produced by Live Nation, this epic 55-city tour will stretch across summer and fall, kicking off June 12 in Bristow, VA, and hit every region of the U.S. before wrapping November 13 in Reno, NV. Multiple Canadian shows are scheduled as well. See full itinerary below.

Tickets and VIP packages for all four artists go on sale to the general public beginning Friday, February 14 at 10 a.m. local time. Citi is the official presale credit card of the tour.

Monsters of Rock Cruise (Feb 11-16, 2018)

It was down to the wire for me and my buddy to work everything out to be able to go on the eighth annual Monsters of Rock cruise. We literally booked ten days before departure and got lucky by snagging a mid-ship, mid-deck cabin location (prime location for multiple reasons) from someone who had just recently had to cancel their reservation.

It was an early morning as we left St. Petersburg at 6:45 AM for the drive down to Miami. Thankfully no highway or vehicle obstacles prevented us from making it to the port in plenty of time to get checked in and actually had to wait a few minutes until the staff began the actual boarding procedure – once we set foot on board the rock adventure began. The entire experience is based on and around fan interaction with the band members as you never know who is going to be getting on the elevator with you or sitting at the table next to you in the dining room. Within the first 30 minutes being on board as we were exploring the ship we shared an elevator with Todd La Torre of Queensrÿche, the next ride with Rick Allen of Def Leppard, and I offered an open seat next to us and actor, comedian and fellow metal head Jim Florentine sat down with us and had dinner the first night. And speaking of the whole 80’s immersion experience it was pretty awesome that whoever puts the cruise together also had the forethought to play classic 80’s movies and TV shows on a non-stop loop for extra added entertainment value with the minimal time spent in the cabin before passing out from exhaustion each night.

And exhausted each night I was – my final count was seeing 44 bands and 2 comedy sets in 5 days, sometimes having to leave one show before it was over in order to catch the next band on the schedule that I wanted to see. In the days just before the cruise departed the show schedule had been released and as with any sort of event where there are so many bands playing in a condensed period there is going to be some set time overlap so you might not be able to see everyone that you want to. It mostly comes down to which band(s) do you want to see the most, learn the layout of the ship and the fastest way between the different venues and plan accordingly from there. There was at least one instance for me where I had to decide between three different bands all starting within fifteen minutes of one another at literal opposite ends of the ship. Had I not needed to stop for nourishment in order to sustain basic human functionality I would have been able to see a couple of more shows but overall I was very pleased with all of the performances that I did get to see, the meet and greet pictures I got with the bands and I 100% would like to go on next year’s cruise.

I was a teenager in the mid 80’s and I grew up listening to the majority of the bands on board and had even seen a few of them before, including the first band I ever saw live back in 1984 when Autograph opened for Van Halen, so watching Autograph play certainly took me back in time. When I first looked into this cruise and saw the lineup was filled with bands that I liked I would have said my excitement culminated with The Iron Maidens being onboard (an all-female tribute band to the mighty Iron Maiden and a band I had always wanted to see since I had discovered them a couple of years ago). I can say with certainty after the cruise while The Iron Maidens were most certainly a musical highlight I was most blown away by a band that I had never even heard of before or even really noticed in the lineup. I just happened to catch the Beasto Blanco set and I was totally blown away – this band freaking rocks, their stage show is beyond wild and since I have gotten back I have yet to listen to anything other than their tunes.

Day one started off as mentioned learning where all the different venues were, running into a great majority of the artists on board and just as the boat sailed off from the dock the tunes started on the pool deck stage with the Jared James Nichols band. Throughout the evening I saw Kix, Kickin Valentina, John Corabi, Pretty Maids, Autograph and for me the highlight of the day was the set by Lynch Mob, featuring guitar god George Lynch of Dokken fame. He had always been a favorite musician of mine from back in the day with his blistering speed I had always considered his solo in Dokken’s “In My Dreams” as the quintessential kick ass solo of the 1980’s and seeing him just absolutely shred right there in front of me was an unreal moment.

Day two had us at the island of Coco Cay in the Bahamas and after a tour around the island we ended up sitting a picnic table away from Steve Harris of Iron Maiden & British Lion as we feasted on Lunch. There was a stage set up on the island and we checked out most of the set by Budderside with a perfect tropical setting of palm trees and turquoise water behind them – it was rock paradise. The rest of the day was one continual highlight as I got to see sets by Winger, an acoustical performance by Tesla, Lita Ford kicking ass, Doro Pesch of Warlock fame with her tremendous vocal abilities, Queensrÿche played a flawless set, Y&T was a band I had always wanted to see but the highlight of them all was finally getting to see The Iron Maidens play. After what had been a whirlwind day, their set did not even start until Midnight and any bit of tiredness I had instantly went away as they jammed into their set. Musically if you were to close your eyes and just listen to them you would swear you were at an Iron Maiden concert they are that spot on exact to the real thing.

Day three we were at sea for the day and I had a whole slew of kick ass shows ahead. Again there were so many highlights. I saw Kix, Winger, Doro Pesch and Tesla a second time, with this time Tesla playing an electric set. LA Guns played a blistering set as well as the Firehouse and Great White sets were ones that again took me back in time with their timeless anthemic tunes. Comedy sets by Don Jamieson and Jim Florentine resulted in many laughs. British Lion was incredible – I was not familiar with their music going in other than knowing that Steve Harris was in the band and I came away from this set a definite fan and was looking forward to their second show later in the cruise. A second show seeing The Iron Maidens was again the musical highlight of the day for me with them digging deeper into the Iron Maiden catalog than the night before for some true classics. This was the evening where the scheduling conflict forced me to sacrifice one of the three bands that I wanted to see but were all playing at once. It totally was a ‘first world’ problem to have.

Day four we were in Labadee, Haiti, again with a stage set up on the island where we jammed to the tunes of Heavy Mello after exploring the island. One highlight of this stop was a picture opportunity with the aforementioned guitar god George Lynch whose Lynch Mob show was the first one up once we got back on the boat. Once again Mr. Lynch dazzled with his wizard like fingers on the guitar neck, this time Lynch Mob even went into the Dokken discography for a couple of songs and that was pure bliss for me. This day I saw both LA Guns and Great White for second time and sets by Vixen, Tyketto, Madam X, and Lies, Deceit & Treachery. The musical highlight of the day and the entire cruise was checking out the Beasto Blanco set. The band started off with their self-titled song and I was instantly blown away by how heavy they were compared to the 80’s rock them of the cruise – being a Chief Metal Officer and lifelong metalhead there was no issue with me with some heavy metal. The band features Alice Cooper’s daughter Calico as a co-vocalist and I must say she puts on one hell of a wild stage show (as one would expect with her ‘creepy’ upbringing), ripping the limbs off of mannequins on stage with a sultry evil demeanor. Their entire set totally kicked ass to the point where I want to see them again and have had their YouTube videos on constant replay since I got home from the trip.

 

The fifth and last day was again at sea and another full day of shows ahead. This day I saw Keel, Dangerous Toys, Rough Cutt, Lillian Axe, Rhino Bucket, Pink Cream 69, Junkyard, the Atomic Punks, and a second set with Pretty Maids.  I also saw the second British Lion show and again marveled at the legend Steve Harris playing right in front of me and this set solidified the band earning me as a fan. The musical highlight for me was seeing Lita Ford’s second show. Another musical legend just wailing on her guitar and with her lungs and by the time I walked out of the last show of the day I was thoroughly worn out from a most amazing five days and nights of literal nonstop rocking.

Mixed in throughout the various shows and spread out over each day were the meet and greet and picture opportunities with each band. The lines got to be quite long for these and this is where it is definitely worth the extra expense to book into one of the ‘Silver’ or ‘Gold’ VIP room packages. The VIP perks included can and will make a rather large difference in your cruise experience when it comes to early access to the various seats in the different venues and being first in line for the band photos (there was at least a three hour line to have your picture with Steve Harris and his band British Lion). Of course as long as you are polite about it and not interrupt an artist when they were eating then it was easy to acquire a picture, an autograph or at the very least converse with the various artists on board as you roamed the ship.

The entire trip was a blast, I saw some great performances by some amazing musicians. I got to rock out to tons of great music that took me back in time and got some incredible pictures to remember the memories with. The fun did not stop once I got off the ship as I had previously purchased a ticket for The Iron Maidens concert in St. Petersburg not knowing I was going on the cruise so it was a total added bonus to have a sixth straight night of killer tunes. It was also concert history for me as it was the first time I have ever seen one band three times in a span of just five days. \m/

Monsters of Rock Cruise (Feb 11-16, 2018) /

Hatebreed | November 29, 2017 | State Theater | St. Petersburg, FL.

Hatebreed destroyed everything in their wake with their performance at the State Theater. The tour was billed as “20 Years of Desire & 15 Years of Perseverance”, paying homage to their first and second studio albums, so it was with great anticipation in the days and weeks leading up to the show knowing the set list would favor heavily from those two kick ass releases. Continue reading “Hatebreed | November 29, 2017 | State Theater | St. Petersburg, FL.”

Slayer / Lamb of God (7/21; St. Augustine, FL)

When this year’s Slayer tour was announced I was on vacation out at sea on an eight night cruise and got the fan club email after the various presales and general ticket sales had already started (which translates to all the good seats were already taken – since I am now older, wiser, wear glasses and no longer consumer adult beverages I opt for a seat at shows instead of the general admission pit). The closest tour date was in St. Augustine, just over three hours away, but with the announcement of Lamb of God opening AND going on hiatus after this tour, as much as I wanted to go see this pure thrash metal combination I just did not see it happening. Continue reading “Slayer / Lamb of God (7/21; St. Augustine, FL)”

Iron Maiden – Tampa 6/11 and Tinley Park 6/15

Last year I had the opportunity and good fortune to be able to see Iron Maiden shows in both Florida and Illinois and when the new US leg of their tour was announced I jumped on the chance to do so again this year.  These would be my fourth and fifth Iron Maiden shows and even though knowing ahead of time the set list would be the same at shows only four days apart that in itself was in no way a deterrent to see this legendary metal band so soon a half a country away. Continue reading “Iron Maiden – Tampa 6/11 and Tinley Park 6/15”

Metallica Live – July 5th (Camping World Stadium, Orlando, FL)

Metallica lit the Orlando sky afire with their mammoth stage production when they brought their “Hardwired…to Self-Destruct” tour to Camping World Stadium on July 5th.  Four massive screens, seemingly a hundred foot tall, was the backdrop of a simple stage layout where the four metal horseman absolutely electrified a crowd of forty thousand plus with over two hours of pure in your face metal brilliance.  Continue reading “Metallica Live – July 5th (Camping World Stadium, Orlando, FL)”

Concert Review: Explosions in the Sky, 4/26 Cleveland

It’s hard to describe the feeling that Explosions in the Sky’s music gives you, they blend indie rock, classical, even elements of metal into beautiful works of art. Their music has been known to move me to tears without a single word being said, and their performance in Cleveland on the 26th of April was just as emotional.It was my first time seeing Explosions in the Sky live and the show was so full of energy.

The sound was great and the House of Blues was a perfect venue for Explosions in the Sky. Each song was performed masterfully, I was totally blown away by the depth of their live musical talent. The show was intimate and small, the band performed a range of their songs focusing mainly on their new album “The Wilderness”. The band used wide range of instrumentation which they tweaked and distorted to their liking, hard hitting drums and soft strings kept my ears begging for more.

 

The night was all around amazing, the band really rocked the House of Blues here in Cleveland. One thing I can say is if you are a fan of great music and amazing vibes, check out Explosions in the Sky. I truly look forward to the next time that I can make it to one of their engagements!
