New Year’s Music Resolutions For 2013: Part 6

“Six! Six! Six! – The number of the blog series posts la la la la”…..or something like that. Okay so I realize that was a slightly corny an intro but it’s New Year’s Eve 2012 and before I get ready to ring in the brand new one, I just had to get that next batch of quotations out for our “New Year’s Music Resolutions for 2013”. If for some reason you are only picking up with this right now, please know that you have walked in during the middle of the movie. Yep, the part where the Avengers are already fighting each other, where Batman is holed up in some faraway place and where Spider-Man is facing what amounts to be one of his deadliest foes, so you might want to start a few posts back. For those keeping track, welcome to Chapter Six – Let’s go…

1. Tom Morrisey (Killcode): Our resolution for 2013 is to capitalize on everything we’ve done since our inception. The band is ready to bring it to the next level and the shows in 2013 will only get BIGGER, LOUDER and BETTER! We can’t wait to get out on the road spreading the :::CODE:::!

2. Kyle Odell (Vanisher): I just want to meet new people and learn to better myself as a human being and musician. I hope for the best and am stoked for a busy year with the band.

3. Marcela Bovio (Stream Of Passion): My New Year music resolutions for 2013 are to finish writing and record the 4th Stream of Passion album (really excited about that!), and to work even harder to promote our music and go places where we’ve never been before.

Vains Of Jenna @ Santo’s Party House (10/27/2009)

Logo - Vains Of Jenna

Artist: Vains Of Jenna
Venue: Santo’s Party House (New York, NY)
Opener: Dirty Penny, Wild Street, Natasha Komis
Date: 10/27/2009
Label: RLS Records

Having been to many of the super powered Heavy Metal shows hitting the region of late I found myself being caught up in the overall seriousness that the genre often brings to the table. You might find this strange but how could it be anything less than the case when one catches bands like Type-O-Negative, Satyricon, Chthonic, God Dethroned, Moonspell and Gwynbleidd all in the span of two and one half weeks. I slid in a little Gothic Hard Rock and Melancholy with The 69 Eyes for their tour but the need for some fun stuff was becoming a necessity and that was when the call came for me to attend an event hosted by Sammy Valentine that was being held at Santo’s Party House. Sammy was calling this event “Big City Rebels 2” and my guess it was the follow up to another fun event that he moderated and when I saw the roster of bands performing I knew that I was in for a good time. Headlining the show would be Vains Of Jenna who I had seen before, Dirty Penny who while new to me in concert I had some familiarity with the name and w little bit of the sound and kicking it into gear would be native residents of the NYC Nighttime Rock and Roll world Wild Street and Natasha Komis. Combine all the hot talent into an equally hot club and it was a win, win situation for all who attended. I got there early enough to catch the first group which was Natasha Komis. Here is how the night played out if you didn’t manage to attend.

“Vamp”Collection by Fetty Launch & Semi Precious Weapons (3/31/2009)

vamp_invite_simple

Tonight’s adventuring would serve a twofold purpose because not only was Justin Tranter (lead singer of the band Semi Precious Weapons) launching his new line of jewelry called “The Vamp Collection”; but he and the group were going to perform a quick set of material somewhere down the line as the party progressed into the night.  Sounds like a good time right?  Well, when you add to the mix that the location of said event would find this gathering at the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame Annex down in Soho, NYC then the good time gets raised to new and much higher levels.  Back in December, photographer Peter Parrella and I had actually already paid a visit to this Annex and did a lengthy report about it which you can find elsewhere on the site.  For me the coolness factor was upgraded just a little bit more by being able to return to the place since it was rather interesting even though the Hall has left out some of my own personal favorite acts cool, even though as a fan of certain groups I have a reservation about some inductees that the Hall has placed inside its walls.  All photos are by Peter Parrella (copyright 2009).
