The 69 Eyes are a very appealing band and while we were originally latecomers to their sound, we have made up for lost time in the support of their unique brand of Gothic Hard Rock. This would be our third time seeing the band and the added plus would be the opening slot by Wednesday 13. To read and see more about this show just scroll past the logo below.
Artist: The 69 Eyes

While I have only been following The 69 Eyes for about four years I have to admit that I have aimed to make up for lost time by bringing the readers of the website up to speed on them should they have been in the same boat as I. Many people might not realize this but the band has been together almost 18 years and while other groups can claim this honor and beyond, there are choice few who have kept the exact same lineup as when they began. Yes, The 69 Eyes have not had a change in their membership roster since they all decided to play together back in their hometown of Helsinki, Finland. Originally more of a Trash Glam band that had a very New York vibe to it they became a Dark Gothic Hard Rock act several years ago and have continued to mold and shape the way this genre is enjoyed by fans worldwide. Tonight they would bring their show to the newly opened Blender Theatre (which is also known as The Gramercy Theatre to some) and have Fair To Midland and Wednesday 13 as their special guest openers. Sadly, I would miss Fair To Midland and this was a shame since I not only enjoyed and reviewed their EP for the site – but also since the band was celebrating their full length debut album that has been released on the Serjikal Strike Records company run by Serge Tankian of System Of A Down. The buzz that they are receiving is well-deserved and sure to find them not being on so early in a touring roster very soon. I am positive that I will have many chances to catch them in the future.
