Local H Add Spring Tour Dates For The East Coast

Categories: News, Tour Dates

Local H is currently on the inaugural tour with new drummer Ryan Harding, and by all indications things seem to be moving along smoother than a friction-less surface.  So after endless nights awake looking for shooting stars to pass along the sky it turns out the band has added more gigs to this trek. With a handful of shows left for March ending with a Scott Lucas solo spot in Forest Park, IL, the boys will head further east hitting towns Local ... Read More

Local H Say Good-Bye to Brian In New York City – 10/5/13 – Santos Party House

Categories: Reviews

I know I’ve only written a few reviews and one of them was a Local H review, but I just have to do another one after catching them in New York. This was a big trip for me for three reasons. One, I had never been to New York and it was on my bucket list of things to do before I turn 40 (which is funny because I’m only 3-4 hours away). Two, this was one of the last shows that Brian would ... Read More

Video: Scott Lucas Funny Bantor With Crowd In Russia Pre-Encore Last Week

Categories: Reviews

Local H played a show at Milk Club in Moscow, Russia last Wednesday on a bill called “12 Hours Of Grunge, Noise, Post-Grunge and Grunge-core”, the latter of those four genres I'm unfamiliar with. The card featured bands Round Hills and The Depressounds. As a matter of fact The Meat Puppets were slated to play this gig too had it not been for last minute visa issues. Anyway, always the charmer, one of Concert Confessions favorite dudes Scott Lucas had some pretty amusing ... Read More

The Top Five Jay Porks Concert Experiences of 2012

Categories: Reviews

Top Five Jay Porks Experiences of 2012 The end of the year brings us empty wallets, fat stomachs and most importantly larger egos than we had the year before. It's because of these egos that people like me put together these year end "best of"  lists. Although as you know, here at Concert Confessions we do things a little differently then other sites. We don't have a Top Albums list, Top Artist list, Male and Female Rookies of the year list we do ... Read More

Local H @ The Bell House 10/18/12 Brooklyn, NY

Categories: Reviews

Local H - 10/18/2012 The Bell House - Brooklyn, NY Words/Photos/Videos - Jay Porks The CMJ Music Festival: Hundreds of bands, tons of venues, and so little time. The “Marathon” as they call it consists of 4 days this year of shows in and around New York City and Brooklyn and is the reason I get to see Local H tonight for the 2nd time this year. A scheduling conflict cost me my shot at seeing the band perform at Webster Hall in the afternoon ... Read More

Local H w/ Ambassadors 09/24/12 Troubadour - West Hollywood, CA Words/Photos by Reverend Justito Back in early August I received an e-mail with a download link for the latest Local H record Hallelujah! I’m A Bum. Over the next few weeks the latest concept record from the pride of Illinois has been blasted into my head over and over and over again.

Local H Announces New Double Album, US Tour Dates Many of us here at Concert Confessions are obsessed with Local H. You can imagine our delight when news broke a few minutes ago that not only were the band returning to the road, but they were heading out in support of a new double album entitled Hallelujah! I’m A Bum. The 17 track double album was produced by Sanford Parker and features the two piece band rocking harder than ever before. The album is ... Read More

Local H Double Dip (Sort of) In NYC 4/15/12

Categories: Reviews

I have no idea why people don't support/know of this band. My 4th time seeing the Mid West Duo and it's no secret that New York City hasn't gotten the full Local H platter the last 3 visits to town. First it was way back when they opened for the dreadful Electric Six at Webster Hall, then the next time they played, Livenation bumped them out of the building early due to a Midnight Showcase the Stone Temple Pilots had scheduled at ...

Local H Flies Under The Radar w/ A Few 2012 Dates

Categories: Reviews

Words/Photos/Video by Jay Porks Whoa, wait a second. You're telling me if I had been lazy and chose not to dig all the way to the bottom of my email from the 'Bowery Presents' I wouldn't have seen that Local H show listed at the Mercury Lounge in NYC? One of my favorite bands who kills it every time they come to my town, whether it's Gramercy Theater or Mercury Lounge was that close to passing me by. No way. Especially when ... Read More

The Top 10 Jay Porks Experiences of 2011

Categories: Reviews

As 2011 reaches a close, we take a look back at the year in concerts. In volume, I probably attend the least amount of total shows per year if you pool all of the contributors here at Concert Confessions. But never the less, by years end I will have reached 23 concerts, eclipsing last years total of 20. My only personal goal is to always get out to more shows then the year before. We did that in 2011, and here's hoping ... Read More

I've been a huge fan since 1996 and every time they come around, I'm like a little kid at Christmas time.  I count down until the show arrives to my town, well, DC isn't my town but it's the closest they come to Maryland. Local H is the only band I will go to DC for. Traffic sucks there ... Read More

Reverend Justito Presents His Top 5 Concerts of 2010   I have been attending concerts non-stop since 1996.  2010 has been a wonderful year of music.  Not that I have the time to keep track of such a statistic, but I do believe that I have seen more shows in 2010 than any other year of my life.  It was not easy to narrow down my top five shows from this year, and chances are this list would be different if you asked me ...

That said, it was a lot harder than I thought it would be to determine shows would make the cut in my Top 5 of 2010. I mean, what does one exactly judge specifically when it comes to this type of list. The criteria is vague to say the ... Read More

Local H (w/ Left Brain Heart) 06/18/10 BriXton South Bay - Redondo Beach, CA Words/Photos/Videos by Reverend Justito/concertconfessions.com When it comes to Local H, I suppose I am only allowed to see them perform live in the South Bay.  In the mid-1990’s, I saw the band perform at both Kamp KOME radio festivals just north of San Jose, CA.  Some 13 years later, I found myself this past Friday night making my first trip to the SoCal South Bay community of Redondo Beach, where Local ...

Tonight we are headed to the Blender Theater at Gramercy, 127 East 23rd street to see the legendary hard  rock duo from Illinois- LOCAL H.. Interesting subplot to this evenings show: Earlier in the week a story broke that the Stone Temple Pilots were trying to squeeze Local H out of the room for tonight's event- or should I say ...
