So here we are at the closing segment of the adventures at the Big Apple Comic Con which was as you know sponsored by the fine folks at Wizardworld. Thanks for coming back to us as we are only out to amuse and entertain you with our media findings when it all comes down to it. Chapter Three is pretty much focused on the Cosplayers that I chanced upon during my visit and who doesn’t want to be celebrated for their hard work at the end of the day. Travel on dear reader.
First up for this segment is the representative of the Museum of Comic Book Art. The museum is someplace that I really want to check out and its located over on 594 Broadway between Houston and Prince in NYC. Check them out HERE if you have similar interest.
Having attended the NY Comic Con back in October of last year, an adventure that can referenced HERE, made me curious about what I would find at the Wizardworld Big Apple Comic Con when it would come through town during this Metal Month of May. These conventions are usually filled with musicians and entertainers along with the stellar talent that is doing the mainstream as well as independent comic books. The past two weeks have been stocked with musical adventures as bands like Destruction, UFO and Whitesnake all had visited our fair city. Last night was Blackfield with Anathema and tonight would be Apocalyptica if the world didn’t end like the crazy people were saying it would. Only time would tell, so join me on this potentially last report from the realm.
Artist: The Lynch Mob Venue: B.B. King Blues Club (New York, NY) Opener: Sonic Bliss, Willie Basse Date: 1/31/2011 Label: Frontiers Records
It was exactly six months to the day when I last caught a once again touring Lynch Mob and that was when the band was acting as direct support for the Michael Schenker Group back in July. The show was great but Lynch and his merry mates only played about seven songs which left the fans that were excited to see him up there again leaving slightly disappointed with the short set. That made tonight’s appearance at B.B. King’s something that they were looking forward to because it was announced that he would be performing a combined “Best Of” set of both Lynch Mob and Dokken material with his band. I had to admit that this interested me very much especially when you considered how drummer “Wild” Mick Brown was once again working with the axe slinger. That made this particular configuration of the group as close to the original as possible with the exception of original bassist Anthony Esposito. The second change in the lineup for tonight would be on bass, as Robbie Crane from Ratt was in place for this go round. The openers listed for the show would be both Sonic Bliss and Wille Basse but I would not catch them and only focus my attention on Mr. Lynch. Continue reading Lynch Mob @ B.B.
