Not much worth seeing, in my opinion, comes my way. I plan to see Joe Bonamassa in Seattle in December, and I've convinced my brothers to go on the Monsters of Rock Cruise in February. Saw a local indie rock band called In Medias Res, last night. They, as always, were amazing.

Kind of. Dakota Rock Fest is no more. This year it's Empire Rock Fest that is being put on by a different promoter but very similar setup to Dakota Rock Fest.

Nice. I have not seen them, but they are still sounding amazing.

Two hours to go and there are a bunch of people with lawn chairs in front of the stage. Bastards!! Once it starts I'm gonna walk up to the front and stick my ass infront of some fat-ass in a chair.

Hall & Oates were absolutely incredible!! My only complaint would be that 90 minutes is not enough to go through their library justly--even with two encores. I guess I'll have to catch another show in the future. Incredible.

I'm jealous. I caught Hall & Oates on HDNet about a month back. They were fantastic! Definitely one band I'd love to see live.

I went to the H.E.A.T. festival yesterday. The first band started at app. 3pm and it ended at 11:45pm. Awesome !! :party421: :party421:

 

Lineup:

 

Hollywood Burnouts (surprisingly really good local glam-rock band with hair-do like Poison. lol)

Serpentine

White Widdow

Human Zoo

Shakra

Keel

Stage Dolls

 

The best of the stack probably were the Stage Dolls. Torstein Flakne & team were in a really good mood and gave us a tremendous show. A little heavier than usual.

Second place goes to White Widdow and Serpentine. Both were very good. When I spoke to the Serpentine guys later on and told them that I saw them playing at The Borderline in London in March this year (Glen ! Dan !! :)) they nearly freaked as this was their first ever gig and very special to them. I also had a nice chat with Jules from WW. Funny and very pleasant chap !

Third place goes to Human Zoo. Good songs and great show, very much in vein of Gotthard.

Shakra wasn't bad, but very heavy.

Keel is not "my" music.

 

Some pics will follow ..........

No, no setlist and I didn't hear any covers. It was about 50/50 the first and second release.

Hmmm, really difficult to tell. Maybe 300? Definitely less than when you were over to UFOR.

    • I Don't mind em so ill be checking this one out.
    • That is one terrible album cover 
    • From Frontiers: BREAKING NEWS: Frontiers Music Srl are delighted to announce the release of “Ride To Nowhere”, the third studio album by Inglorious on January 25, 2019. The debut single & video from the album, “Where Are You Now?” is out now. The album will be released on CD, Limited Edition Box Set (CD+T-shirt), Vinyl, Limited Edition Crystal Vinyl (exclusive to Frontiers webstore), Limited Edition White Vinyl (exclusive to the Inglorious webstore), and Digital formats. Pre-order HERE: http://radi.al/RideToNowhere
      Inglorious Store: http://inglorious.com/shop/
      Frontiers Store: https://www.frontiers.shop/ In amongst their touring commitments, Inglorious spent 2018 writing and recording their third studio album, “Ride To Nowhere”. A much darker, more reflective album than their previous releases, the new songs further hone the Inglorious sound – the pulsating rhythms, driving guitars and infectious vocal melodies. “This album is different in many ways. The songs came about very quickly. As with all our songs we start with a riff, and this time having new guitarist Drew added a new and heavier feel to a couple of songs. We wrote the basics mostly together all in one room on acoustic guitars and then I went away and crafted the stories I wanted to tell. For me this album is very personal. I am for the first time writing about a lot of my feelings, relationships and losses...” – Nathan James “On this album I feel that the songs are a true reflection of what we’ve been through over the past few years - both as a band and as individuals. You’ve got the highs, the lows and lessons learned along the way. The making of this album was at a time when we all had our own personal situations and changes to deal with. I feel that this definitely comes through on the recordings and particularly songs like ‘Tomorrow’, ‘Where Are You Now?’ and ‘Glory Days”. – Colin Parkinson The recording of “Ride to Nowhere” involves for the first time new guitarist Drew Lowe, who says “The album is the next step for the band in maturity. Being that it's my first, I wasn't sure what to expect, but as soon as we started we knew what type of record was coming. Hopefully the fans will love it as they follow us on the musical journey.” From the body blow riffs of the first single “Where Are You Now?”, to the beautiful melodies and bluesy overtones of “I Don’t Know You,” from the assault of “Freak Show” to the acoustic ballad “Glory Days”, “Ride to Nowhere” is an absolute gem of an album, showing not only all the influences from iconic rock albums of the 70’s, but also offering the band’s own sound and interpretation. As with Inglorious “II”, the album was mixed by the legendary Kevin Shirley (Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith). “There’s a lot of variety on this album, more so than the previous ones and that I really like. Sonically I think it sounds more fresh, contemporary in a sense and that goes for a bunch of songs on the album as well. Just the singles alone are different than how we’ve sounded in the past, but still have the Inglorious feel and vibe! Lastly I also think that musically it’s better than the previous albums, everyone plays very tasteful, soulful and collectively I feel that it’s perfect!” – Andreas Eriksson “We’re all really happy with the way the new record sounds and look forward to seeing how the fans receive it. I personally can’t wait to play the new material live on the road!”- Phil Beaver   Tracklisting: 1. Where Are You Now?
