The Details: In the annals of Hardcore music history, there are few bands who are as influential and as cited as The Dead Kennedys. They were formed in 1978 and quickly became kings of the underground movement for the growing scene. For years they were fronted by the enigmatic presence of Jello Biafra but he has long been out of the lineup which leaves only East Bay Ray, Klaus Floride, D.H. Peligro as the band with Ron “Skip” Greer on vocals. Either way, its an exciting opportunity to be able to offer a couple of PiercingMetal.com readers the chance to enjoy the show for free thanks to the fine folks at Livenation. Time to lace up those boots dear readers. Continue reading Win Tix For Dead Kennedy’s In NYC (2/12/2013)→
The Details: The unlikely pairing of the century comes as Whitechapel joins forces with Emmure for the “Brothers In Brutality” Tour. I say unlikely since each of these bands seems to have a vastly different fan base but that doesn’t matter sometimes when it comes to dishing out a fistful of Metal. The interesting run will make a stop in New York City and bring along Unearth, Obey The Brave and The Plot In You for good measure and thanks to the fine folks at Livenation, some of the loyal PiercingMetal readers will be able to enjoy this event for free. Yes, I said free. What is better than that? Continue reading Win Tix For Whitechapel & Emmure In NYC On 2/11/2013→
The Details: Tom Keifer is the man with the plan and the voice behind the now legendary eighties Heavy Rock and Blues band known as Cinderella and for decades he has been entertaining the masses with some amazing tunes. Now it’s time for Tom to show off what he can do on his own as he celebrates an upcoming solo album entitled “The Way Life Goes” and embarks on his first-ever solo tour. Fans will get the first listen to what this album features and I’m sure a solid dose of classic Cinderella tunes will come with it and thanks to those amazing folks at the Highline Ballroom, a few of our site readers are going to get to enjoy the show for nothing. Yep. I said that. Continue reading Win Tix For Tom Keifer In NYC On 2/11/2013→
The Scoop: The mighty Turisas is back in NYC to deliver a dose of Finnish Battle Metal like never before and they are doing so with the help of Gus G. and his band Firewind and the lead off group of experimental musical maniacs in Stolen Babies. Whew is all I can say when I think of this package too much and I am as always excited to welcome such talent back to our region. I’ve seen all three of these bands on a number of occasions so I know full well that the fans will not be disappointed. It’s also exciting to inform the readers that thanks to the fine folks at Livenation, PiercingMetal.com will be putting a couple of its readers into the show. Check out how to enter our contest below.
When and Where: Wednesday, February 6th at 7pm @ The Gramercy Theatre ( 127 East 23rd Street, NYC) Continue reading Win Tix For Turisas/Firewind In NYC (2/6/2013)→
The Scoop: Uli Jon Roth is one of the best guitarists alive. That is pretty much all I have to say about that. He first came to people’s attention by being a member of the Scorpions from 1973 to 1978 and during his tenure released four albums with them. He was one of the first to offer up the Neo-Classical style of guitar wizardry and he created the Sky Guitar which is an instrument unlike any I have seen or heard before and his overall style has influenced more guitar players than I can easily name. I’m always excited when Uli comes to NYC to play for us and even more so this time because he is doing so at a brand new NYC venue. That being said, I am pleased to announce that thanks to the management team at Stage 48, several of the PiercingMetal.com readers will be attending the concert for free.
