Death to All, a tribute to Chuck Schuldiner’s influential metal band ‘Death’, featuring members of the original line up from their 1991 album Human with Max Phelps of Exist and Cynic on vocals played a ripping first show of the tour at the House of Blues Hollywood last weekend with support from Anciients and Masters of Metal.
“We’ve been on the road for three months now, it’s the longest tour we’ve ever done. We’re excited to go back home to Australia tomorrow, but we couldn’t think of a better place to end our U.S. tour than with you here tonight L.A.” said lead vocalist Jordi Davieson to a room full of fabulous twenty-somethings in funky and fashionable attire. It was the perfect conclusion to San Cisco's tour finishing at the legendary Troubadour.
Sammy Adams hit the stage at the historic El Rey Theater this past weekend with opening act T. Mills. The native Boston rapper will be touring cities across the U.S. through the end of April wrapping things up at The Metro in my fave city, Chicago!
Colorado thrash metallers Havok were not on the bill as the headline act for the night, in fact there were three other bands set to play after them making their set time more akin to that of an opening act, but on Wednesday night at the Observatory, Santa Ana, there was no way anyone who didn’t already know otherwise would believe that to be true!
It got mighty loud atop the historic Hollywood Tower as an intimate group of Rockaholics gathered in the name of Alkaline Trio, presented by 98.7 FM. While the sun sank over the hills, casting a crimson glow on a classic rooftop view, about 50 taco-eating fans rocked out to a few old favorites from albums of yore, and PPLA was front and center for a live sneak preview of some of the best songs from the Trio’s new album, My Shame is True.
