Sacrificial Lambs: Lineup announced for the next battle of the bands

September 30, 2009

LOG_Gwar_ShrineMosqueIt seems everyone discovered a winning formula with this summer’s Korn show at The Shrine Mosque: Book a big-ticket national act, set up a battle of the bands among big-drawing locals to determine the opener, apply revenue from the battle of the bands to help offset the cost of the big-ticket national act. The formula returns October 17 with another battle of the bands–this time at The Outland Ballroom, as opposed to Remmingtons Downtown–to determine the opening act for Lamb Of God when the band comes to the Shrine with Gwar and Job For A Cowboy November 7. The lineup? Glad you asked. Peep it after the break.

Rock Talk (4/19): Afraid Of Monsters, Holstein, Six Shots Till Dawn, The Murlesque

April 20, 2009

kzrqrocktalklogo1Last night’s episode of Z 106.7’s Rock Talk rocked harder as the night went on. Believe it or not, we didn’t plan it that way. We kicked off with local ambient rock group Afraid Of Monsters playing a softened (we won’t call it acoustic) in-studio set, followed by Holstein debuting never-before-heard tracks from their upcoming album, Blood On James River. Metal group Six Shots Till Dawn chatted about the upcoming Stemm show they’re opening for with Extreme Hate Frequency and Formant, and The Murlesque dropped in to talk about its Friday-night performance at The Blue Room at Billiards of Springfield with Glass Bottom Boat Ride and The Secret. In all, it’s a VERY packed show, and we have it for you in full after the break.
