Gone On Vacation!

Sorry folks, don't expect to find any new updates on River City Revival until after next weekend. As of this evening, my wife and I are off to Florida to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Back in about a week!

Congratulations Dime, Shine on!

Cool, Dimebag Darrell to be posthumously Inducted Into Hollywood's Rockwalk. I just hoping it not because he was killed in a tragic way but because he was one hell of a guitar player and so damn nice to all his fans.

2007 Sounds Of The Underground Dates Announced

It looks like the official line-up and tour dates have been announced for this years Sounds Of The Underground. Click on the link to learn more about the bands or to find a show near you! Hmmmm, it looks like my wife and I will be trekking down to Winston-Salem, NC unless a closer venue is announced soon. Too bad there are no Virginia stops, especially since Richmond's own G.W.A.R. is headlining the damn thing.

GWAR Has Been Announced as The Sounds Of The Underground 2007 Headliners

According to the announcement from G.W.A.R. themselves they are the headliners finally for the third run of The Sounds Of The Underground this summer. So far the other bands that have been announced for this line-up are Shadows Fall, Chimaira and Every Time I Die. Cool, so far so good. I've been wanting to see Chimaira and Shadows Fall live for a while and hell, from what I've heard from Every Time I Die, they aren't that bad.

Photos From The RPG Show 4/7/07

I finally was able to upload the pictures I took from RPG's Saturday night's show at Gallery 5. You can enjoy them here. RPG as always put on a solid performance. Plus, one of their opening acts ended up gaining new fans from my myself and my wife. Detroit trio The Hard Lessons put on a great performance. We we're hesitant at first by the samples we heard from the band's myspace page but their sound live and their stage presence is what won us over in the end. The Hard Lessons are a band to watch on the indie rock scene.

A Conversation With Peter Steele

Another great interview with Type O Negative front man Peter Steele. Obviously Peter loves fucking with these interviewers especially when they slide off topic from discussing the new album or when they bring up topics he's sick of talking about. Sorry, but don't be surprised if the person you're interviewing gives you smart assed remarks when he should be promoting his band's new album and you keep asking him questions about a photo shoot he kinda regrets doing almost 15 years ago. Read it here or listen to it here. Funny stuff.
