Categories: Reviews

The 5th annual Golden Gods Awards hit the Club Nokia in Los Angeles on May 2nd. This was an award show specifically for rock and metal alike. Basically what the Grammys should be, but aren't.

The show was dedicated to Slayer co-founder and guitarist Jeff Hanneman that had passed away earlier that day.   There were lots of surprises this night as well as the awards themselves. ...

The Cool Tour 2010 07/31/10 - Palladium: Hollywood, CA Words/Photos/Videos by Reverend Justito/concertconfessions.com  A major reason I started concertconfessions.com was my disgust of journalists from major media outlets.  I hated old and out of touch professionals who were paid to see a show, only to trash and miss-represent an artist due to their failure to connect.  Not knowing over half the bands on the inaugural Cool Tour, I was hesitant to accept an offer for a free ticket/full access press credential.  Fearful of becoming everything ...

Hayley Williams Joins Deftones in Luxembourg

Categories: Reviews

      Clearly, I should have spent the weekend in Luxembourg instead of Ventura.  Somewhere in that pint-sized nation was an event called the Rock-A-Field Festival.  Not only did it feature the #1 band Concert Confessions would like to see play in America again, but those lucky Luxembourgers (is that a real word?  Fuck it – it is now) were treated to Lil Miss Hayley Williams of Paramore rocking “Passenger” with Deftones. Sure, she may not be Maynard, but she has a much nice set of ... Read More
