Win To See Texas Hippie Coalition In NYC On 7/27/2013

Poster - Texas Hippie Coalition at Gramercy - 2013

The Details: I’d be lying to you if I said that I knew a whole lot about the Texas Hippie Coalition because I don’t. I managed to see them only once before in concert and that was a special appearance at the annual CMJ party held by Skateboard Marketing over at the Bowery Poetry Club. It was a solid set but to my knowledge the band had not returned since that time. I guess the best way to analyze the style is to compare it as a not too distant kin of Hell Yeah so fans of that band might want to check them out n the stage. This all makes me excited to announce the latest contest thanks to our friends at Livenation who want to put some PiercingMetal fans into the Gramercy Theatre where the band will appear with Eve To Adam as direct support for their “Highway Robbery Tour”. The NYC show will also feature Black Water Rising and Eye Ra Haze. Read more on how to enter this one.

Music Luminaries Share Their New Year’s Metal Resolutions for 2012: Part 2

Welcome back, I’m so glad you could join us. You might remember how I recently posted a little more than a handful of New Year’s Metal Resolutions for 2012 by some truly great musical personality. Well, please enjoy the continuation of this enlightening and fun group of insights as we ask the Metal Community great to finish the sentence “My New Year’s Metal Resolution for 2012 Is……”

Alex Skolnick (lead guitarist for Testament/Trans-Siberian Orchestra/Alex Skolnick Trio): My New Year’s Musical Resolution is to sift through the endless musical ideas I’ve recorded as voice memos or on MP3’s or cassette in the last few years and develop some of them into real songs.

Lance King (lead vocals for Avian, Pyramaze, more): My New Years Metal Resolution is “To incite the Metal Masses, awaken them from their apathy, to get their collective asses in gear to support the scene wherever they live in any way they can. To help spread the word and to go out to see the touring bands, help them make ends meet by paying the ticket price, having a head banging great time and buying a shirt, music or both!!! Seriously, the scene in all countries needs a huge shot in the arm. People need to take up the support roles of the fallen in promoting shows, championing artists with PR, sponsorships, media coverage, video skills, radio, new marketing ideas, alternate sources of revenue so bands are able to get out and do what they love to do best, share the music with the fans live. There simply is nothing in tech and home media that can reproduced a live metal concert’s experience when done well.

Sammy Avigal (vocals for Avigal): My new year’s Metal resolution is to continue living the Metal dream, enjoy what I love, and do best, and hopefully influence the next generation of Metal heads, as I was influenced as a young Metal head myself by the Metal elders of my generation.

It was that time of year again when the CMJ Music Marathon took its hold of NYC and offered music fans and media representatives of all genre specifications a wide variety of special events and performances. One of the yearly traditions that PiercingMetal.com has been taking part of is the Skateboard Marketing showcase hosted by company founder Munsey Ricci. A staple figure in Metal and Rock radio promotion, Munsey would be celebrating the company’s 18th anniversary and this year’s showcase would once again take place at the Bowery Poetry Club. The entertainment for the party would come via The Texas Hippie Coalition, a band I had only heard the name of before this evening. Here is a light recap of the bands performance and a batch of photos to enjoy.
