DOKKEN gig in New Jersey


Fat Freddy

Recommended Posts

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.

    • His music videos are always good: either very silly, or very sexy. So I've got this queued up on the PC. Looking forward to it. 
    • New single "The Animal" dropped today, not bad at all:    
    • I dig the new tune!  Honestly, might be my favorite yet from these guys. I like that this kind of gets away from the  Bon Jovi Country vibe they sometimes had on the debut.  For me, this has a fresh, big sound to it.   Will have the new one on my radar.
    • 3rd single... Love It   
    • New video for 'Dance'.    
    • Vandenberg - Sin Chicago - The Chicago Story (2 CD) Megadeth - So Far, So Good, So What? (Expanded) The Allman Betts Band - Down to the River Mike Oldfield - Five Miles Out (Remaster) Buckingham & McVie - S/T Michael Hutchence - S/T Roxy Music - Stranded (Remaster) Echo & the Bunnymen - Reverberation  Echo & the Bunnymen - Evergreen (Expanded)
    • After releasing two albums with AOR/Melodic Rock band Streets, ”1st” (1983) and ”Crimes In Mind” (1985), lead singer and keyboardist Steve Walsh returned to Kansas, to revive the band along with original members Phil Ehart (drums) and Rich Williams (Guitar). Furthermore, the lineup was completed by the addition of bassist Billy Greer (from Streets) and young, promising, former Dixie Dregs guitar man Steve Morse, who also contributed with composing skills and backing vocals. Eventually, the group’s ”Power” album was released in November of 1986, rather much to the vintage Kansas and Prog Rock purists dismissal, as I recall it. The heavier sound/direction and absence of violinist Robby Steinhardt, songwriter/keyboardist/guitarist Kerry Livgren and bassist Dave Hope were all contributing factors to the disapproval, it seems. However, mentioned ”Power” should perhaps instead be judged on its own merits, as it is what it is. Put out in a time when commercial Melodic Hardrock was very much in fashion, with FM rock radio and MTV as ever the important ingredients of daily life. In the end, the album actually landed at a respectable No. 35 on the Billboard chart, while the single/ballad ”All I Wanted” eventually rose to an even more impressive No. 19.

    • They have a real knack for writing (and producing!) songs that could be featured in '80s coming of age films and I mean that in the most complimentary way possible. Really putting the retro in retrowave
