Russian Circles – interview & live video

Today I share a most overdue post – the second and final episode of the RockitBomb.TV pilot project. I am happy to post an interview and set opener from Russian Circles, an amazing band that I have had the fortune to see multiple times, as well as the honor of sharing a bill with them via Thin Fevers.

Check out Andy and Annie’s interview, and the band’s set opener from the April 23rd, 2009 show at Radio Radio .

For anyone who missed my previous post – this project was a collaboration that I embarked on last summer with A2 Industries. Unfortunately, due to my career change, and A2 busy bringing awesome to Indianapolis, the project has been indefinitely shelved.

Thanks to the guys in Russian Circles and A2 for being awesome to work with!

The Beasts of Eden Interview

beasts

This week we have Chris V. on the show from New York’s Beasts of Eden, an awesome rock quartet that brings to mind No Knife*, The Beatles, and general awesomeness. On the show we have three tracks from their 2007 EP and some great conversation about influences and their trip last year to Cabo with a bunch of playboy bunnies.

Keep an eye out for a new record from them this year, and thanks to Kellie for the introduction.

*I seem to be developing a habit of comparing bands to No Knife on the show.

AC/DC is about to Rock.

I am pretty beyond stoked that AC/DC is touring, and will be stopping by Indianapolis on day three of their “Black Ice” Tour. The new track on their website sounds pretty rocking, and to be honest, I have never not liked an AC/DC record.

Check out the dates below, the tickets prices for Conseco Fieldhouse seem a little steep, but I think it may be worth it.

From LiveNation: “The Black Ice World Tour will make a stop at Conseco Fieldhouse on Monday, Nov. 3 at 7:30 p.m. Reserved tickets are $91.50 plus applicable service, handling and credit card charges.  Tickets will go on-sale Saturday, September 20 at 10 a.m. at Livenation.com, Conseco Fieldhouse box office, Ticketmaster or charge by phone at 317.239.5151.”
