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.

Unity, part deux: Meet Eclectafest

September 28, 2009

Eclectafest2The name doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue–hell, the first time we read it we thought it said “Electafest” and tried to ponder what political ties it might have–but Eclectafest (note the extra “c”) has its musical heart in a good place. The show, booked for Saturday, October 17 at Nathan P. Murphy’s, follows the scene-unifying theme established a few months ago with the Unity show at Remmingonts Downtown. In other words, the lineup is set up to combine groups from a variety of genres to put each crowd of fans in front of the other crowds’ music. The lineup presently consists of The Archimedian Point (rock), The Spacetones (hip hop), The Somewheres (blues) and Moon Rocket Baby (electro/atmospheric). Nice to see a good idea lives on.
