Gwar, The International, Knoxville, Tennessee

Comic Shock Rockers, Gwar, violated souls at The International in Knoxville, TN this past Friday.    The uptight and easily offended need not buy tickets to a Gwar event. You will only leave disgusted and Gwar doesn’t have a complaint department. Nor do they care. I have heard about Gwar’s over the top concerts since I was a teenager. I have kept up with their music, change of characters, and… Keep Reading

New Music: Idles ‘Mother’

IDLES met as a quintet at the death of the indie scene in Bristol and began making visceral and sometimes unlistenable post-punk to a growing crowd.

They… Keep Reading

Following the releases of 2006’s Year Of The Dog, 2008’s Year Of… Keep Reading

JFK Jr. – Lygten Station, Copenhagen, Apr.16

Surprising road-worthy hard Rock’n’Roll from a humble band JFK Jr. is a quartet from Copenhagen, and if you like Pixies, Foo Fighters and similar bands, you’re gonna like these guys. Soundwise we’re in early Foo Fighters territory. The first band of the night, JFK Jr., got the fire going in this small Copenhagen venue. Audience turnup was sparse, unfortunately, as this was still early in the night, but seemingly unaffected by… Keep Reading
