Due to the Coronavirus pandemic and the ban on public assembly of more than 500 by New York State officials, this event has been postponed to a later and as yet undetermined date. Please refer to this calendar and our social networks for the latest rescheduling notices. Stay healthy.
ITM and BVB have teamed up and will bring their music to the masses. You’re not going to want to miss this one.
“I have worked with Andy and BVB since he was a teenager, first discovering him as a booking agent in the early days of Sumerian. To see everything he’s accomplished as a musician, actor and writer in the past decade is truly inspiring. To finally be able to partner with Andy and BVB as their record label while working alongside Blasko and Brxnd management for the next era of the band I believe will lead to the most compelling days yet and Andy is only in his 20s… exciting times ahead!” – Ash Avildsen
To say that this has been one of the busiest Monday’s in my music reporting memory would be an understatement. So far we’ve had tour announcements about The Black Crowes, Ozzy Osbourne and Alter Bridge along with an announcement about the upcoming Anime NYC. Now it’s time to see what’s happening with the In This Moment camp. Check it out.
Well how about that my friends, it appears as though we’ve once again arrived at the time where the Instagram “Top Nine” images are tabulated and that means you get to enjoy them as well. Over the course of 2018, I really was enjoying the use of Instagram as a social networking tool and I’m fairly certain that I used it a lot more than any of the other socials combined. The rundown will come after the image below so please take a gander. I figured that I’d offer up some background on them all.
About These Visuals: Starting from the top left hand corner we’ve got the band Paramore which is fronted by Hayley Williams and right next to that is the ominious Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein and his own parmour Alissa White-Gluz of Arch Enemy. A lot of you longer terms website readers will likely remember Alissa from The Agonist. Closing up the first row is Black Veil Brides singer Andy Black who was showing off a brand new comic graphic novel at the Last Rites Gallery. I’m not sure why they decided to cut off artist Eryk Donovan but that is the app for you. Sorry Eryk. The second row was from a great SiriusXM Town Hall with the legendary Judas Priest and that is the lads and myself post their interview at the station. It’s always great to say hello to The Priest and of course to support their live shows. The Brits are followed next by two images of the lovely and talented Riki “Riddle” Lecotey who is a cosplayer of some reknown. They were taken from The BoroughCon event and we just love her amazing designs. Our last row is the also legendary Glenn Hughes who was delivering a solo tour that celebrated his Deep Purple years. This row is completed by a visual from the Ghost Press Conference that was held by Papa Nihil and Sister Imperator and the great Zakk Wylde from Black Label Society and Ozzy Osbourne during his special appearance at the “Fear The Riff” Expo in Brooklyn. Good times. As you can see, the collage shows that we recieved 25.8K likes for the sum total of our 6,716 posted images. Though we’ve gone up over 1K followers to 1,419 the sum-total likes dropped a chunk in comparison to last year. I think this was based on our flipping between personal and business accounts to get some standings but in the business account we saw less people coming aboard much like the Facebook Official Page. Since Facebook owns Instagram a lot of the same algorithm stuff goes on and they want you to pay for ads which I am NOT going to do.
