We here at www.Yourband.info like to try and review as many bands as we can. Sometimes that is hard since we cannot make every single show to give each band a fair review. We wanted to make it down to see a new band to town last night at Pencuches but We just couldn’t get out of the house (by this we mean, too drunk after mowing the lawn to drive) So we sent an IM on Facebook to Mark, the drummer of Ghost Dinner Band, to see what that band was all about. Below is an exact transcript of our conversation. Nothing was taken out and names were not changed.
I hate Rachel Vogelzang. She has destroyed my afternoon. She is recording a new album and has a pledge drive going on over at Pledgemusic.com to support her album (it's like Kickstarter but better). So, why does this make me want to rip out a clump of her hair, set it on fire and toss it at her? Let me explain, I don’t hate her - I passionately despise her and want to stab her in her freckling face because I LOVE the items she has up for exclusives. I can’t decide which one I want to buy. I made the decision that I would spend about 20 bucks to help her meet her goal, but, there are just too many great things to choose from! F*%^ you Rachel Vogelzang!!!!!
Were you at Market Days this past weekend? I was. Were you there for the performance by the Rippin’ E Brakes in Bicentennial Square? I was. Were you blown away by the music? I was. Did Lucas Gallo and Eric Reingold make you cry because they pointed at you and snickered? Uummm no? uumm no- me either. OK- moving on. I have seen The Rippin’ E Brakes a number of times. I have always enjoyed their music but this show seriously blew my mind more than any of their past performances. I could not figure out what happened to this band. They were tight as hell and the music coming out of the speakers was spectacular.
Pat and The Hats started off as a three piece band. Then they added a backup singer, then another guitar, and now- a second backup singer Hannah Rose. Since we have already written so much about the other members of the band, we decided to attack their newest member Hannah with a stick. Since we couldn’t find a stick, we decided to attack her with questions. We sat down with her at Market Days in Concord this past weekend. We asked her our famous 5 questions- We asked for her number too- She said “42”. I think she didn’t understand what we were asking orrrrrrrrrr, maybe, she understood perfectly. In any event, she did answer our 5 questions- Her answers and direct personal cell phone number are below!
Yesterday we posted an article about the events taking place at Market Days this weekend in regards to music. You can read the full story here- http://yourband.info/index.php?q=Market-Days-Live-Music-2014
Since the publishing of that article we have received around 50 emails of support and a couple of disagreement. We were invited to speak on 94.7 FM last night and outlined our concerns there as well. On top of that- we have talked to numerous people at market days. Below is a response that we recently gave to people who may have disagreed with a portion of our thoughts on the matter. We felt that it is important for everyone to understand that this community of musicians that call Concord home are more than grateful and appreciative of bands from out of town. They are also what makes this scene great…. With that… read our recent response below
This weekend is Market Days in Concord and what does that mean? It means lots of local music is going to be filling the summer air. This year there are going to be three different spaces for you to hear local music during Market Days; Bicentennial Square, Eagle Square and in front of Tandy’s on Main Street. These stages will be filled with some of the best musician’s in the area.
Lucas Gallo and Rachel Vogelzang have gone to great lengths to provide you with pretty much the best selection of bands. Rachel put together the music you will hear at Tandy’s and Lucas is the captain of the Bicentennial square performances. If you bounce from stage to stage these next three days, you will hear the best this city has to offer in the way of music. You have to love this time of year- Market Days always has great local music. However… there is a big issue that I cannot avoid mentioning…
We sent one of our field reporters to True Brew on Friday night to check out the band that was playing. We asked him how the show went and to report on the event. We should mention- he is one of the most talent-less bass players in town, for one of the biggest bands but his name has been withheld to protect the innocent (he has long curly hair... wears blue). Below is what he had to say about the show Jake Davis put forth for the crowd.
It is so much fun being a local rock star. Playing music is a passion for most musicians. However, on occasion, it is not so cool to be a local musician. It downright SUCKS sometimes. Why? Well- here are the top 5 reasons.
