MORE FROM EVENTS

Forged in Steel Fest 2022

This past Saturday September 17th, chaos descended upon the Sub Alpine Society with the Forged in Steel Fest 2022. The best of the best metal bands in the Pittsburgh area and beyond came out and gave it their all, and if you missed it, well then you are going to wish you were there for what took place. The night opened with Horrid Ordeal coming on stage and giving us their brand of thrash metal....

Front 242 Black to Square One Final US Tour

This past Friday September 9th was the start of the final US tour of Front 242 at Mr. Smalls Theatre in Millvale, PA. Anticipation was at his highest, and let me say, this was yet another crucial summer concert moment for the books. It was high capacity crowd for the evening, and once everyone got settled in, Distortion Productions act Red Lokust took the stage to get the evening started on the right foot. They...

Distortion Productions: Solar Fake/Whorticulture/Tragic Impulse

This past Wednesday August 31, I attended the 201st show presented by Distortion Productions which was held at Black Forge Coffee House in Mckees Rocks, PA. It was to be a pretty hype evening, with three pretty solid acts. I would say it was the best way to end August, and put a cap on a very busy summer concert season. Pittsburgh based electro-industrial band Tragic Impulse was the opening the evening, and their set...

The Sub Alpine Welcomes Living Dead Girl & Wildstreet

On Saturday August 20th, I had the pleasure to return back to the Sub Alpine in Turtle Creek to check out Living Dead Girl. It was an octane filled evening with much anticipation for what was to come. Opening up the evening was Skarlett Sky, and they nearly set the stage on fire with their intense performance. I was told to keep an eye on them, and it was for good reason, because they definitely...

Whitney Peyton’s Return to the Vortex

Whitney Peyton made her return to The Vortex in Akron, Ohio this past Friday. For guests coming to see her, artists preparing to perform, and workers preparing for the busy evening it was going to be quite a memorable event. Artists on the bill for the night were Mettal Maffia, HB the Grizzly, Bella J, Casey Xans, Bolic, The Knightheart, Ducky, Big Toke, and Uncle TJ. Let me tell you everyone was excited for this...

Oil City Gets a Taste of Hellfire

Last Saturday marked the second stop on what will eventually be a full-length version of The Hellfire Tour 2022. “Blood Harvest” was a multi-genre event, with everything from Metal to EDM to Hip-Hop sharing the stage of this historic building in downtown rustic Oil City. Massive windows on the upper level of the National Transit Building adorned a view of the old style community below, as several artists and others in attendance came together in...

Soulfly Shook the Crafthouse Stage!

This past Tuesday was a rainy and dreary day in Pittsburgh but a hot evening at The Crafthouse Stage and Grill for fans of metal, and especially fans of Soulfly. You’re probably not going to believe me but, I had no idea I’d be shooting this whole show. I was there for opening act Feast on the Fallen and planned on making it an early night, until I was approached by a man I’d never...

NeverWake is Not Sleeping on 2021 w/ “Hang and Choke” from Misguided

Blasting into the speakers of their listeners, Pittsburgh area natives NeverWake release a single entitled “Hang and Choke” with a follow up EP release. From first listen, I knew this band was a force to be reckoned with – powerful riffs, hearty vocals and harmonies, driving percussion, and lyrics that emanate from a personal chasm. They have many of the tools that set themselves apart from the sea of content available to the masses. Concentrating...

Enough is Enough, Music is Not Dead

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...

Brimstone Coven, Book of Wyrms, and Shi Rain Doom onto Howler’s!

Pittsburgh has apparently become another home to Martin’s Ferry, Ohio’s deft doom-rocking power trio Brimstone Coven. This past Saturday night was yet another successful stand for these groovy, Mephistophelean mischief makers of melody. Humorous stage banter between polymath bassist Andrew D’Cagna and guitar hitman Corey Roth, their music gluing Black to Blue playfully, like delinquents papering suburban homes. Songs such as “Earth and Ocean,” new, unrecorded song “The Inferno,” back catalogue classics “The Grave” and...
