Review of Capital City Rock Fest – Hellyeah, Stone Sour & Avenged Sevenfold

September 6, 2010 · 4 Comments 

Springfield, IL on Friday the 13th of August was the scene of a log awaited rock show this arena has needed for some time. The Prairie Capital Convention Center was home to some big concerts in the 80’s and 90’s such as Metallica, Quiet Riot, Def Leppard and Sammy Hagar just to mention a few, but has really slowed down in recent years as far as bringing in big bands, but they finally made up for it.

Review of Tool – Undertow

Review of Tool – Undertow

August 8, 2010 · 2 Comments 

Dust it off ! Brian’s review of Tool – Undertow I remember like it was yesterday.  I was watching MTV videos and the video for the Tool song “Sober” came on.  It contained claymation figures and some disturbing images.  I was hooked and had to purchase it.  The album is called Undertow. As a second album I would have to say it was well made, but not their best album.  In my opinion, most bands make a breakout album; this band gets better as each album comes out.  The songs on this album are simple and direct.  Dark and grungy feeling come to mind for me.  It took me... [Read the full story]

Sick of Standing in Long Lines?

October 8, 2008 · Leave a Comment 

Here’s a little math problem for you.  Thirty thousand people, approximately 20 beer stands with two workers pouring one beer at a time=pissed off people in looooooong lines!!  Why on earth would you not have several beers already poured or more people working so you won’t have to miss 2 or 3 songs of the next group performing on stage?  Get a clue people, we didn’t come and pay all that money to stand in line all night!  The worst example of this I have ever seen was at the Journey concert in St.  Louis at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater.  Seems to me this math problem... [Read the full story]
