If you think Stone Temple Pilots suck without Scott Weiland, maybe you give them another listen. Better yet, go see them live! STP kicked off their Spring 2015 tour at the Paramount in Seattle and it was awesome.
It was pretty much a greatist hits set, which was cool because everyone could sing along. AND because “I hate it when a band plays their best songs”, said NO one EVER! Dean DeLeo has posted clips of new stuff titled “Memo:Demo”, and can be heard here on Soundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/stpsoundcloud/sets/memo-demo
Opening the evening was Dreamers, a trio from Brooklyn. Strangely enough, two of the band mates were originally from Seattle. So you know they got tons of crowd support. They were good too, and played an energetic eight song set. Check them out on Facebook and give them a listen on Soundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/dreamersjoinus/wolves

The Sonics are out promoting their first new album since 1967! They kicked off a month long, 12 stop tour at The Moore Theater with The Intelligence and Mudhoney to support them. It was a really great show with a crowd that clearly there to see The Sonics.
The Intelligence, a local band that describes themselves as “lo-fi post-punk” started the night with a great set. Followed by Mudhoney, who is always awesome. It was kind of funny (the weird kind) though, nobody seemed THAT into them. After “Touch Me I’m Sick”, as about 3 people stood up, Mark Arm commented “Ya know, I’m old too. Wish I had a chair.” So the drummer, Dan Peters, offered Mark his stool.
When The Sonics took the stage, all that changed. Everyone was on their feet rocking out to old favorites and several tracks from their new album. The also had special guest appearances by Chris Ballew (The Presidents of The United States of America) singing “Head On Backwards”. Mark Arm (Mudhoney) helped with “Shot Down”. And then in maybe the highlight of the evening, Krist Novoselic was introduced and he played bass for “Cinderella”.

Oogie pops the question to Amanda… LIVE on Mighty Mouth Blues on 4-6-15!Read More
The show was sold out and the Showbox was packed from the begining to the end. These were smart fans! The entire show was a blast & it appeared that everyone was having a great time.
Deap Vally is a rock duo consisting of Lindsey Troy (guitar, vocals) and Julie Edwards (drums and vocals). According to Wikipedia, the two met in a crochet class. Well, opening for Marilyn Manson is about as opposite from crochetting as you can get! These girls are an amazing bundle of organized noise and put on a great showing. They’re promoting their debut album “Sistronix” and have fun track names such as Creeplife, Gonna Make My Own Money, Walk of Shame. If you want to check them out, you can find them on iTunes and Facebook.
Marilyn Manson was awesome! He came out with smoke machines running riot and started the set off with Deep Six, the lead release from their new album The Pale Emperor. Quite a fitting title, don’t ya think? It was a 16 song set with two more from the new album, Third Day of a Seven Day Binge and Cupid Carries a Gun. Then filled the rest of the list with favorites, including his covers of Sweet Dreams and Personal Jesus.
A Manson show is pretty interactive at the smaller venues. He crowd surfed and spent considerable time standing on the barricade touching hands and singing in the crowd.

Playing a 6 pm show on a Saturday at the Tractor Tavern on short notice, I was curious how this was going to go over, even for a band as well known as Cracker. “Sold Out” was the result and a blistering acoustic set by David Lowery and Johnny Hickman along with their slide guitar player Matt “Pistol” Stoessel was the treat for all who got in.
Playing almost two hours the fellas didn’t disappoint the faithful who called out to hear their hits; Low, Eurotrash Girl, Teen Angst, and several others. They also treated the crowd to several new songs from their current album “Berkley to Bakersfield”. Having been around nowsince 1992, their audience and band are showing their age a bit, but the enthusiasm, spirit, and fun were all on full display. AND we were all home in time to be in bed at a decent time!

Coal Chamber Reunion Tour
with Filter, Chombichrist, & American Head Charge
3-11-2015 at The Showbox
There were just the right amount of people at The Showbox last Wednesday night. It wasn’t sold out, but not freakishly lean either. Just enough room for moshing, jumping, and twirling your neck off with that bad-ass long hair of yours! And everyone was there to see different bands, any of which could’ve been headlining.
American Head Charge started out the night! And speaking of reunions, AHC has been back together since mid to late 2011. They have a four album catalog, most recently Tango Umbrella that was just released earlier this year.
Chombichrist blew up the stage next. This is a one man band except for live shows! Andy LaPlegua is the brain and voice behind Chombichrist. But on stage he’s accompanied by Joe Letz (drums), Z Marr (electronics & percussion), Abbey Nex (bass), and Eric 13 (guitar). And together they are an amazing industrial treat for both your eyeballs & earholes.
Then it was Filters turn. Now they had a rough start. They played the entire first song with no vocals coming out! And since they wear earpieces to hear each other, the band was clueless. However, they recovered quickly and just started over. The booing was quickly turned into horns & fists in the air and everyone singing along. Phew… Filters’ set was saved!
Coal Chamber headlined, taking the stage at about 10:30. Everyone on stage was part of their break-up in 2003. They came out blazing with “Loco” and “Big Truck”. Then lead singer, Dez Fafara, told everyone in listing distance to make up with people that we have rocky pasts with, that grudges take too much energy, and that reconciling differences is so worth it. That’s not a direct quote, but it did set the tone for the rest of the night. They even looked happy on stage!
