Watch Helmet’s Ferocious KEXP Session

It’s crazy to think that Helmet has been cranking out tasty heavy metal jams for over twenty years. With no new album to support, hardcore 49ers fan Page Hamilton and the gang ventured into the enemy territory known as Seattle for a few gigs with Wire. During their stop in the Emerald City, the band took time to record a quick session for local radio powerhouse KEXP. You can enjoy Helmet performing with headphones on down below.

Dave Matthews Band Announce Acoustic/Electric Summer 2014 Tour Dates

In a shocker to no one, Dave Matthews Band will hit the road for a massive North American summer tour in 2014. What is shocking is the format the shows will take.

Each show will be a two set affair. The “evening with” is being billed as both acoustic and electric. According to Rolling Stone, the band will change their configuration as needed while performing songs from their expansive catalog. Matthews goes on to tell Rolling Stone that they are trying to keep the shows “loose” this summer and that “It seems like the opposite of a safe plan, so why not?”

The trek will feature some interesting locations, including three nights at the Greek Theatre in Berkeley California and their first appearance in Bend Oregon.

The online presale for the Warehouse fan association begins Thursday, January 16 at 10 am ET. Tickets go on sale to the public beginning Friday, February 7.

September 26, 2012

I have loved Garbage since the days of the mixed tapes in high school. I remember blasting, “Only Happy When it Rains” from the tape deck in my parent’s car as I drove around town like some kind of suburban bad ass (which I wasn’t). I found last night that the 90’s alternative rock sound is still alive and rocking venues.

Opener: I hated Screaming Females. They live up to their name. I am not a fan of the screaming into the mic. There is a time and place for it where I like (or tolerate) that type of vocals, Cage the Elephant come to mind as a band the lead singer screams into his mic. That’s all I have to say about the opener. I cared more about vodka tonics and shots than I did their music.

Regardless of how the Screaming Females set the tone for the main attraction, they did not distract from Garbage’s presence and experience. Shirley Manson lived up to all my expectations. Manson’s amazing Scottish accent, sex appeal and attitude were enthralling. Moreover, the blend of American and Scottish music influences the band has had over the years were infused in their new bodies of work making their portfolio continuous and rounded. Manson circled the stage as she performed like a tigress. Her stage personality bleeds out as she spoke to the devoted fans. For example, at the near end of the show she described the “minor cluster” as band mates scrabbled to set up for “I Hate Love”. She explained it would be the first time the band performed the single in front of a live audience. This act was to atone for their sudden cancelation in Seattle the last time they came through the northwest. I noticed Manson avoided the higher notes. Given, high notes are rare in their songs but, it seemed to add to the raw, deep, rock sound of Garbage than a void.

Garbage played with vigor. The Show box’s sound system vibrated through me. The testament of Manson’s voice carried over the power of the heavy guitar riffs, hooks, and electronics. The new album release “Not Your Kind of People” lives to their tradition. Garbage sounded BIG. The new singles were true Garbage signature sound.

The show had the energy of long time fans. Garbage played a great variety from their albums. Fans lit the venue with lighters during “Milk”. The band rocked “I Think I’m Paranoid”. “Happy When it Rains” began with the nostalgic slow rhythm into everybody’s favorite beat. The crowd gave their vocals to the chorus of “poor your misery down on me”. Other memorable performances last night: “#1 Crush”, “Cherry Lips (Go, Baby, Go)” and “Shut your Mouth”.

If they are coming to your neck of the woods, and you too listened to them (perhaps on tape) don’t miss them!

Death From Above 1979 Announce Fall 2012 Canadian Tour Dates

Death From Above 1979 Announce Fall 2012 Canadian Tour Dates

Good news for fans of Death From Above 1979.  After a successful run of reunion shows last year, the band has been working on new music. To get the jams to gel the band plans to hit the road next month for a Canadian tour. Check out the statement the band just posted on their official website:

What next? Want to do it all again?

So here we go. Jesse and I have been writing new songs and the only way we feel like we can make them any good is to go out and play them for people. We’re going to throw our little muscle bound babies to the lions and see who survives. We tried just jumping into the studio, but the songs lacked spirit. They lacked life.
So this tour is song CPR.
There’s no way for us to do it anonymously anymore, so we’re inviting you to come along with us. Watch us Do It. The way we used to. The way everyone used to. We’re a band, and bands just work it out together.
