As anyone who has followed my social media knows, I am a huge promoter of the local music scene. I love the talent in southwest PA and am always encouraging my followers to go to the local venues and support our hometown musicians. We are so lucky to have such a great variety of fantastic artists and awesome venues. Sometimes though, people are hesitant to go out to a new venue and check out an...

After just watching the latest teaser for the upcoming Losing September video “Curse the Sky”, I’m on pins and needles. “Curse The Sky” is the sequel, and aftermath, to their latest release “Contagious” and they’ve once again partnered with Kill Devil Films to bring the darkness that lies inside the mind of vocalist Bruce Fane, to life. When you see video teasers from bands it’s often a melody that sticks in your mind. The theme...

Oh my God… no, that was Clapton, right?! Remember that story, how a wall in 1960s London was spray-painted with the meme-worthy line, “Clapton is God.”? This was during Clapton’s Yardbirds, John Mayall & Bluesbreakers time, and every guitar player after, including Eddie Van Halen, followed the man and his smooth riffs and blues runs, for years later. Until, of course, Jimi Hendrix entered from stage left, or as we like to call it, Seattle....

Farewell to a Vital Pulse Beat, in the Heart of a Town, The Rex Theater. If you look up the word ”venue” in a random google search, you’ll see references to; a place where something happens, or somewhere organized events take place. Plain and simple, right? So shouldn’t things like hotel conference rooms, the back patio of someone’s house and churches make the list? A rollicking great time can be had by all in many...

Gaming and Music are two worlds that constantly collide in the best of ways, and Demo Demon lives in both. So what does a rap artist do when he’s got some time on his hands? Well… he creates a podcast to bring you the latest gaming news of course! From the latest releases to the craziest gaming news (Doom can be played on a pregnancy test??), Demo is helping to bridge the gap between the...

I’m going to be honest with you, I don’t have a concrete answer to the question “What do we do now?”. This article is to give you a fair warning and hopefully a head start on changing up how you’re currently producing or consuming your music content on Facebook. With the very general statement of new music guidelines, and a lack of options stating how to license the music for the platform, Facebook might be...

Yes, you read that right. Just when you thought 2020 had given us enough surprises we’re now getting a new Nickleback cover of “The Devil Went Down to Georgia” on the heels of Korn‘s own version of the same song.  Seems this song about Johnny and the Devil is having it’s hay day and to be honest, I couldn’t tell you which is better but I can tell you that their two styles seem to...

It sure is getting hot out there, isn’t it? I do not mean the weather. Before I introduce you to the next featured artists on The Bl@ck List, I feel compelled to start with a check-in first. Are you okay? How are you holding up? It takes courage to turn on the news anymore. The monumental moves made for and against us as citizens in these (somewhat) United States seem to separate us from our...

In this article, we will take a look at three ways that COVID-19 has devastated the music industry and four opportunities for artists to emerge from the pandemic stronger than ever.   THREE WAYS COVID-19 HAS...

Call me stubborn, I know I am. Say I’m trapped in some dream world of rainbows and unicorns not looking at reality? Yeah, it’s been said before, but you know what? My hope, love, sunshine and rainbows attitude is wrapped around a spine of steel and a heart made of fire so if you aren’t ready for some hard truth of the positive type, and my own personal brand of a Come-to-Jesus moment about music...

At the end of Martin Popoff’s excellent, poignant 2006 book about Dio titled Light Beyond The Black, a work I highly recommend to any heavy metal fan, Popoff states… “One day, Ronnie won’t be there championing the common cause — a cause dear to his heart because it’s dear to yours. Experience it and enjoy it while you can.” That was the first thing that came to mind when I read the news that Ronnie...

Columbus, Ohio’s Weed Demon have been lurking in the shadows for about 5 years, creating and relasing a handful of recordings since their formation, including an EP and two full-length albums. The latest, Crater Maker, is an underground mine explosion that measures 6 tracks wide, 45 minutes long, and 5 kilotons in strength. This infernal pit of sludge and doom begins with a short, innocuous instrumental composition only to detonate with another, much longer and...

It’s a tough time for those of us who are used to being out and about. It’s even worse when we’ve learned to count on the extra income from gigs, photo and video shoots, weddings, etc. With the quarantine we are all relegated to a very small fraction of our worlds right now. Many artists have taken to putting that time to good use by taking their performances online, providing online lessons and extra videos...
