The Outlaws ‘Til The End Tour at Wally’s Pub – 11/3/18

▣Wally’s | Hampton, NH                                         ▣Saturday, November 3rd 2018

Wally’s in Hampton is as legit a music venue as it is a biker bar. Never seen a bad show there. Beautiful bartenders, great sound, great stage, and KILLER fried pickles. Located in Hampton Beach, Wally’s is a quick hop, skip, or jump from most areas of New England. Be gracious to the fine people who run and maintain the joint and get your ass there asap for a show.

Opening this fine night was local band They Look Human. Locals will want to check them out as Roadkill from the Morning Buzz is the drummer. NASTY bass player in this lineup too. I dug the set a lot. Find them on Facebook and Instagram and show some love.

Raven Black from LA graced us next. They have a schtick going that not many can pull off, but it worked for them. Raven, a tiny girl completely gothed out but in a cute way, sings and screams while swapping props during songs. Black lights adorned the stage which played with a lot of her props as well as the clothing of the band and Luen’s bass strings. Very cool all around. Already grabbed their catalog and suggest you do too!

Jinjer. If you’ve heard me say it a million times, expect to hear it a million more. Do not confuse this band with a multitude of other bands who put a cute girl upfront to gain popularity. Tatiana has a crazy amount of control with her singing and her screams. Hard pressed to find 4 musicians who are as good at their crafts as these four are. I caught with bass player Eugene after the set to ask about the new EP “Micro.” He can’t say when exactly, but he tells me that it will be out soon, “This season.” They did play 3 new songs off the EP, including “Ape” which is now available on all platforms. Video is on YouTube. These guys deserve your love. Hands down one of my favorites.

Devil Driver was the headliner, and Coal Chamber nostalgia aside, I wasn’t blown away. The look and feel are very important to a show and I was just expecting more? Dez is high energy and charismatic but it wasn’t enough to save the whole set. I’ll need to eventually check out the tunes but nothing I saw or heard gives me the immediate want to do so. Now don’t get me wrong, the sound was tight and professional, just less show than I hoped for.

As always, all thoughts represented herein are mine and should not 100% sway you to or away from something! You’ll find all music on iTunes so please listen and let us know what you think about it all. Alternatively, bug They Look Human for tunes so we can listen to them too!

Jinjer with Special Guest at Fete Music Hall – 7/29/18

▣Fete Music Hall | Providence, RI                              ▣Sunday, July 29th 2017

So this is my first coverage of a show at the Fete Music Hall in Providence. As far as local venues go, I like the place. A buddy of mine runs lights and is constantly upgrading for better show experiences. There’s a lounge area and large stage area depending on the show and a ton of kickass bands come through. Look this place up. Worth the drive for us outside of RI.

Echoes of Purity opened up this show. I walked in during their last song so I missed out on pics and the set but what I heard was good and the crowd was digging it. Apparently, this was their first gig too! Self-explained like Chevelle and Mumford & Sons love child. Give them some Facebook love.

L (5)

LUSUS is fronted by my friend Samuel Bendix who does the gig dressed in full drag. A beautiful man AND woman, she’s got the voice and the screams. With makeup, masks, and costumes, this band is a joy to watch. Self-described as monster metal, I’d agree and say they’re a joy to listen to as well. Their official music video for Jet Black Pope is out now too. Find it on YouTube or linked from their Facebook!

A (6)Aversed hail from Boston, which anyone from the area knows probably means some random town from NH or Mass that we don’t want to try and explain. Fronted by local Renaissance woman Haydee Irizarry, these guys ripped. Several fucktons of metal flowed out of this band for the twenty five minutes we got. Playing at last year’s Chicago Open Air, these guys are going places. Check them out!

Bloodline Theory is a metal band from Taunton, Massachusetts (Not Boston.J) Sid Haig, a luchador, and a keyboard player were a part of this act! Keeping the groove coming, these guys got the crowd jumping. Find them on Facebook and check their tunes out!

Dead By Wednesday hail from Connecticut and this isn’t the first time I’ve seen them play. They played with Waylon Reavis’ A Killer’s Confession last spring. Rob, just getting out of the WWE, is a strong front man for more reasons than his 6’7” stature and 22” biceps. He’s got vocal power and knows how to work a crowd. The band has got groove and provides a tight backing for Rob to work with. Check these guys out!

Konipshin Phit came out from Cleveland to play this show. Friends of the headliner and Waylon, these guys played a solid set as direct support for Ukrainian metal gods, Jinjer. Working on new music with members of Vimic (Joey Jordison’s new thing), these guys should have some new stuff out soon!

We did a big write up on Jinjer for their show with Cradle of Filth in April so we’ll keep this one succinct. If you do not know Jinjer, stop what you’re doing. Put down your breakfast burrito. Put your baby in their crib. Call out of work then go to iTunes and get Cloud Factory. These four Ukrainian musicians are on another level. Timing, tuning, sound. Nothing else like it. They’re on a small American run right now supporting their latest effort so if possible, get out to see them!
