Figures... I just found out about this today, got all excited cuz this place is only about 20 minutes from me, then I find out it's on a Wednesday night... :doh: Weeknight gigs are NO good for me (dang wife and kids!), so I'm gonna have to pass.

 

But if anyone else in this area might be interested...

DOKKEN is playin' at "Dexter's Entertainment Complex" this coming Wednesday (August 6th) ... the club is located in a strip mall on Rt. 23 North in Riverdale... supposed to be a nice place, haven't been able to check it out for myself yet (KIX played this same venue back in June)

 

Opening acts are TNA and Ray West's Hostel Inc. (?) and the whole enchilada is hosted by Eddie Trunk of VH1 Classic fame...

Sounds good, but I will be hearing the soothing sounds of Priest, Sabbath, Motorhead, and Testament down in Camden at the Susquehanna Bank Center. In fact I was just talking marinades with my compadre.

 

Kabobs and beers anyone? :woot:

 

On topic... I did see these guys in Texas, and they fucking sounded great. Levin's unbelievable live. :beerbang:

That sounds like MORE than a fair trade-off to me. :beerbang:

 

My bro is going to that Priest/H&H show @ the PNC Bank Arts Center... I forget if it's Friday or Saturday night... I hate him. :angry:

Haha, when the Priest/Heaven & Hell tix went on sale he did call me and ask if I wanted "in" but I didn't have the $$ to spare... and hey, remember he bought me a Maiden ticket for my birthday, I can't really ask him to do that more than once. :banana:

If anyone's interested, I just passed by this club (Dexter's) again today on my way home from the store and they have a big banner out front that sez Great White will be playing there in September. I'm assuming that they're going to leave the fireworks at home. :blink:

I was going to say "Bet it'll be a hot show," but decided to be nice.

I'm sure no matter how big or small the venue is they will never use any pyrotechnics at any show.

But for the record those were just sparklers and not real big pyro, even though they shouldn't of been used in the first place but the material on the wall is what made it even worse.

Yea, I realize that. I was just being a prick. :lol: I'm feelin' saucy today.

To be honest I haven't really cared about Great White since..... "Hooked"?? And that I only listened to a handful of times when I got it over 15 years ago I think..... :whistle:

 

Now the older Great White?? Like.. "Once Bitten"?? HELL Yea!!!! :headbanger:

 

"Let it Rock"(1996) is one of my fav GW albums and even though "Can't Get there from Here"(1999) is full of mid tempo songs and ballads I still played the hell out of it. Their album from last year was real good too.

...they're lucky they're not in the steel bar motel.

 

Was never a big "Great White" fan,except their debut and a few assorted tunes like "Face The Day" and "Desert Moon"...the latter unfortunately being the song they were playing when the place lit up...Why any band thinks they need to use flamepots,fireworks or pyrotechnics in a "club" setting boggles my mind.Let your music do the talking...

"Let it Rock"(1996)

"Can't Get there from Here"(1999)

Two very good albums by the band for sure!

Bumpin' an oldie here to mention that the concert venue discussed in this thread "Dexter's" closed its doors for good at the end of February. Shoot, and I never even got a chance to go to a show there... I suppose that's what happens when you only book national acts in the middle of the week :doh:

I hate when that happens... We just had a new Rock bar open in my area about a month or two ago. I know they have live bands on the weekends. I guess I should get out there, I'm not sure how long the place will be able to stay afloat..

 

Isn't Dexter's the place that KIX played about a year ago in Jersey?

Yep, Kix played there, Great White also did a gig there last year, and so did Trixter. The problem seemed to be, to me anyway, that the "national" acts played there on weeknights (I realize it's probably cheaper to book them for a weeknight than a Friday or Saturday, but still...), and the weekends were the same ol' crapola cover bands that play every other Jersey watering hole. Oh well. I heard it was a nice place. Maybe someone will take it over in the near future.

    • No, you need to show me where the pulse is. 
    • Yeah, it's a great album (Vanity Kills, 2010). Any new material on the horizon?   
    • Lyric video for 'Return To Glory'.    
    • New album out November 22 through Lions Pride Music. From Lions Pride Music: Martin Perticone AKA “Perticone Underdog” is an artist from Buenos Aires, Argentina who’s been in the music industry since the age of 13, when he joined the band Fondo Blues as a lead singer and guitar player. Martin played in the Argentinean under circuits for more than 25 years but during the way also got to know many important people in the music industry that led him to become Tour Manager for artists like Eric Martin from Mr Big in 2007 or even being invited as a guest for Richie Kotzen Latin American Tour in 2008. Martin has also toured around Latin America, USA, Europe and Hong Kong as a hired gun for many different artists until he finally decided to put more efforts on his solo career. That’s how his long-time friend Edu Giardina (well-known artist in Latin America) would become his producer and mentor for his debut album “Underdog”. The mixture of AOR, Southern Rock and Country makes this album unique and different with amazing and powerful melodies all over the place. The album featured guests such as Eric Martin (Mr Big) and Edu Giardina and brings reminiscent from the late 80’s and 90’s but keeping the best of current sounds and trends too. Perticone’s solo career has just begun and in only 1 year from his launch he’s got many followers and fans in Europe, Asia and Latin America. “Stuff In The Basement” was recorded during pandemic times at RED Studios Buenos Aires and features an amazing line-up of musicians from all over the world. Edu Giardina and Guillermo Porro got involved, one more time, as the producers and band members for this new release taking the album to another level. It is plain to see the growth of Perticone Underdog as an artist on this new production by just listening to the opening track of the album “Blame it on Me”. There are, as usual, some country “pearls” and 90’s rock reminiscences all over. Stuff in the Basement will be released in 29 August 2022 by Lions Pride Music worldwide!   CD Tracklist: 01. Blame It On Me 02. End Of The Line 03. Name Without A Face 04. Save Me Tonight 05. Game For Fools 06. Waiting 07. Let's Get Lost Tonight 08. What Went Wrong (I Wonder) 09. When It Rains 10. Falling   Perticone Underdog is: Martin Perticone: Lead & Backing Vocals, Acoustic & Rhythm Guitar Edu Giardina: Backing Vocals, Guitars, Bass, Keys, Drums, Progamming Ezequias Aquino: Saxophone Guillermo Porro: Guitar Solo on „Name Without A Face“ Will Wilde: Harmonica on „Game Of Fools“ Emmanuel Lopez: Lead Guitar on „Let's Get Lost Tonight“ Lara Goi: Backing Vocals on „What Went Wrong“ Brad Harper: Pedal Steel Guitar on „When It Rains“   facebook      
    • You need to keep your finger on the pulse m'boy
    • Don't mind that either tbh
    • They used to be pretty solid. They really took a nosedive.
    • Hi guys,  Check out glam rock band @alliknow_official from Belgium! Playing some support shows for Gun and Mason Hill later this year!  https://open.spotify.com/artist/1DyAEG7bqQ4z10HOBOW8sA?si=B9o67DiuSs-bUQiR_uFp3Q&utm_source=copy-link
