Rev Theory returns to Outland Ballroom May 18

April 20, 2009

thefourfourcomLocal production companies have been giving us a steady build-up in the number of popular-touring-band concerts in Springfield recently. While Korn and Girl Talk may be the crescendo–the year is still young, so we’re not holding our breath just yet–the schedule keeps getting better. The latest addition: FM Productions is bringing Rev Theory back to Springfield Monday, May 18 for a show with Cavo, along with locals Pillbox and As Of Now. Yes, two slots for local rock bands, and no slouches either. You can get tickets at all Metrotix outlets in Springfield–Stick It In Your Ear, Kaleidoscope, Vintage Stock, The Shrine Mosque box office and–and the doors will open at 8 p.m.

Rock Talk (3/29) with As Of Now & The Seed. Acoustic-jam MADNESS!

March 30, 2009

kzrqrocktalklogo1It’s no secret that we love it when artists come into the studio to play acoustic on Z 106.7’s Rock Talk. Not only that, we’ve been very lucky in having guests give us some really special performances. Last night was no exception, though some fans might find the performances exceptional. We got things rolling with As Of Now playing acoustic–which they do very well for being a loud hard-rock band–and followed it with some extraordinary tracks by The Seed. (Peep their first song, a soulful rendition of “She Chose” from their forthcoming album Big Outside.) Of course, both bands talked about their upcoming shows–The Seed’s April 3 CD release show at the Outland Ballroom with Jam Room and Seedlove and As Of Now’s concert in the same room the following night with Nothing Still, King Thief and Plastic Image–and there was banter by the guys about everything from South By Southwest to Simon’s candidacy for public office. Partake after the break.

Being the fans of eye candy that we are, we’ve stockpiled those we can (sadly, we can’t embed MySpace TV vids) and are passing along the digital-vid goodness on to you. Think of it as FourFourTube.

Q & A with As Of Now

September 22, 2008

For the last few weeks there’s been an unanswered question at Four Four HQ: Who the heck is As Of Now? Their promo material seems to be everywhere we look, and we look in a lot of directions and places. The last time we were this caught off guard by a band’s self-promotion prowess was Greedy Fleet a couple of years ago. Seriously, there are fliers everywhere for these guys and their CD release party coming up Saturday, and we’ve never heard of them so much as putting on a show before. (Apparently they have, however.) Luckily, someone caught wind of such dumbfoundedness and decided to do something about it: none other than local video-taking fave Blondie. Not only did she set up an interview with lead singer Mallory Bailey, she wrote it up and sent it to us. It takes a band known mostly from its two-dimensional promos plastered everywhere and makes it seem, well, real. The full interview follows after the link.
