The Details: It’s been a little while since we’ve done a concert ticket giveaway contest here on the PiercingMetal website and with the legendary thrashers of Flotsam and Jetsam paying our Metal Metropolis a visit, I figured it was high time to throw one together. Over the years I’ve caught the band a couple of times and while having enjoyed a number of tunes would not consider myself the most ardent study of their work. It’s shows like these that help the interest grow and its awesome that they are still delivering the goods for the Metal Legions. The NYC show will feature a bevy of supporting acts (Dead By Wednesday, Magus Beast and The Hard Way) and thanks to the Marketing team at Live Nation, a few of our lucky readers will be seeing this show for free. The rules on how to participate are below.
When and Where: Wednesday, May 22nd at Gramercy Theatre (127 E 23rd St) 7PM Show
To Participate: I’m going to keep this an easy one for you and stick with our premise of telling me three things that you enjoy most about the band Flotsam and Jetsam and why you need to be at this show. Answers should have some meat on their bones and be better than “because they rule dude” – That stuff is a waste of time to me. Of course it’s important to follow some guidelines to make sure we are on the same page. Continue reading Win A Ticket For Flotsam & Jetsam @ Gramercy Theatre On 5/22/2019→
Artist: Ross The Boss Venue: Bowery Electric (New York, NY) Opener: Martyrd, Seventh Calling, Magus Beast, Horrifier, Ravage Date: 9/12/2010 Label: AFM Records
I think it was about a year ago that I last caught Ross The Boss in action and for that show he was touring with the NWOBHM Legends Raven. The show was at Club Europa and the gig also featured White Wizzard, Zandelle and another band whose name I have forgotten. I liked what I saw as Ross was at the time supporting his album “New Metal Leader” and this incredible release was miles ahead musically than any of the recent output by his former band mates in Manowar. If you didn’t hear the album and think me insane for the statement, I suggest that you snare yourself a copy and be your own judge. The event this evening was listed as “Thunderfest” and would be held at the Bowery Electric club, a space that I had heard about but not adventured into until this very night. That is always a plus for me since it lets me enjoy the music in a totally new setting and it just makes the night cooler unless the venue turns out to be a hole. There was a lot going on at this rather early starting gig and while it said 6:30pm as a start I would not arrive until almost 8pm. I figured it would not be long after that for me to enjoy Ross The Boss and perhaps a couple of the other openers for the Thunderfest. Continue reading Ross The Boss @ Bowery Electric (9/12/2010)→
