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.


The Show Report, 8/3: Primer 55, yo

August 3, 2009

Tonight Ozarks Live Productions brings Primer 55 and its unusual mix of rock, punk and hip hop to The Outland Ballroom with openers Extreme Hate Frequency, Six Shots Till Dawn and Fiera. Been a minute since you’re heard news from Primer 55? The band has reportedly been hard at work on a new album since January, tentatively titled The New American Gangsters, which does not have an official release date yet. Fans don’t need to wait to hear new tunes, though, as the band has posted three tracks from the upcoming album (which may or may not keep that working title) on its MySpace page: “Picture Frame,” “Flexin” and “You Can’t F*** With Me.” The last is an interesting sample/reworking of the guitar riff from Iron Butterfly’s “In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida”–not the first (or best) application we’ve heard, but solid and played on their own instruments, which should count for some bonus points. It should rock the house live, though, and that’s exactly what we’re anticipating tonight.

Also on your live music horizon:

* BringYourGreenHat at Ebbets Field

* Shawn Eckels and Marcus Chatman at Coyote’s Adobe Cafe

* Trash Angels at Dennis’ Place

* Sylabol7 DJs at The High Life Live Martini Lounge

The Show Report, 7/24: The Double-Whammy

July 24, 2009

We don’t envy The Outland Ballroom’s crew tonight. Okay, maybe we do a little. They’ll be called upon to preside over two big-drawing shows, which would exhaust just about everyone except maybe this little guy. On the plus side, they’ve got a front-row seat for Boba Flex, The Dogs Divine, Six Shots Till Dawn and Adara early and Spookie Daly Pride, Roots Of Mankind and BringYourGreenHat late. Not a bad night’s work by any measure. You’ll want to be at the Ballroom at 5 p.m. for doors to the early show and at 9 p.m. for doors to the late show… unless, of course, you’re part of the staff, in which you’re probably already there and settled in for a long, huge night.

If a marathon night of music isn’t to your liking, perhaps one of these shows will tickle your fancy:


The Show Report, 5/20: A what flex?

May 20, 2009

MAY20TH336x420ADMATBALLROOMNot a Soloflex, a Bobaflex, or rather the Bobaflex, though the band’s show at The Outland Ballroom tonight should still be good for a helluva workout. The metal act–which, believe it or not, has been together more than 10 years–comes to town tonight with Adakain and a bevy of good local openers: All Kills Aside, Six Shots Till Dawn and Troy. The whole Ozarks Live Productions shebang starts tonight at 8 p.m., but if you’re feeling particularly adventurous we suggest ponying up an extra three bucks to get in the High Life Live Martini Lounge door, as well. Then you can barhop between the upstairs bedlam and the smooth downstairs grooves of Urban Legend, the High Life’s weekly gathering of live musicians who improv hip hop tracks with the help of DJ Platinum. Now you can dance or trash your Hump Day doldrums away. Is there a better workout than that?

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.
