Weekend one at Coachella is in the books. The famed Southern California music oasis drew more than 90,000 fans who endured blistering daytime temps, a surreal Saturday night sandstorm and a wide buffet of sonic treats. Sure, the onetime indie fest now features as much hip-hop and EDM as it does anything else. But it's not like there wasn't any metal or hard rock buried in the sand. You just had to know where to look and thankfully, the headbangers in the house were able to catch ultra-solid sets by the likes of Motorhead, Queens of the Stone Age and a host of others.
Even though the members of Steel Panther are from Los Angeles, they celebrated the release of their brand new album 'All You Can Eat' with an intimate gig in New York City. The very glamorous and hilarious group performed five acoustic songs in front of a small crowd at the legendary, high-end burlesque club The Box last night (April 1).
A Day to Remember have to be all smiles after a very successful first year for their 'Self Help' festival. The band staged the event at the NOS Events Center in San Bernardino, Calif., giving music lovers both an indoor and outdoor stage full of great bands to enjoy. And what a crowd it was as there were people lined up for blocks waiting to check out the lineup of bands.
This past weekend New York City fans flocked to Times Square for the sold out Asking Alexandria show at Best Buy Theater. The British lads are headlining their ‘Break Down the Walls’ tour in order to promote their latest record from ‘Death to Destiny.’ They were joined by supporting acts August Burns Red, We Came As Romans, Crown the Empire and Born of Osiris.
