Web Pinkish Black

Staff Pick: Pinkish Black

With a magnificent blend of space-rock inspired dark synths and those internal self-loathing voices you have to just end it all, Pinkish Black will quickly shuffle you down the long, hollow; abandon corridors of your inner psyche. Their modern gothic sound makes you feel that you are on a barely controlled descent into the solemn void of your insecurities. Pinkish Black is opening this portal to your own self on November 22nd.

June13_LarryCoryell-LOWRES

Staff Pick: Larry Coryell

Growing up Larry Coryell was played a lot in house, since my dad raise me on his music. Coryell is a legend and a master at the guitar and to have him be playing an intimate show at Reggies on June 13th is a real treat. A lot of guitar players take influence from him, but I personally love the craftsmanship and feeling in his music. That’s why I’m really excited about having Larry Coryell with his power trio which…

5/28/14 Staff Pick: Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band

Why should you pay attention to MY Staff Pick? Well for one, because I told you so and I’m bossy. I’m little Miss Know It All. Just ask my ex-boyfriend. For another reason, it’s because my staff pick is the Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band! Their raucous and rowdy Hillbilly Delta-Blues sound will get you up off your ass and trying not to spill your drink as you dance your way to the stage. This is a band you need to…

5-18-14 Coffins

Coffins bring their diseased, suffocating death-doom decimation back to this side of the Pacific once again in May at Reggie’s May 18th. Coffins live show thunders with unbeatable mid-paced stomp, laying down over forty-five minutes of bruising low-end sludge-infiltrated, plodding doom with possibly the best production values in the band’s meaty catalog of carnage. With a sound comparable to a bathtub drain backing up with rotting human flesh while Satan himself spins his Motörhead at half the recommended RPM’s, Coffins…

Bladerunner: Staff Pick

“The Bladerunner Project, a John Zorn outfit including the godlike talents of Zorn on his signature instrument, prolific modern musician and bassist Bill Laswell, and heavy metal drumming powerhouse Dave Lombardo (Slayer, Fantômas, etc.) will deliver an electrifying performance at Reggie’s for Bladerunner’s United States premiere as well as their ONLY midwestern date on Saturday, May 3rd, 2014.

4-23-14 The Creepshow

The Creepshow’s passion for touring is borderline obsessive compulsive. They have an incredibly personal dedication to their fans and their live show is nothing short of astounding.

Watching their set is a full frontal assault on all your senses, and you’ll…

April6_PFM-WEB

4-06-14 PFM Staff Pick

This is a band that I got turned onto years ago and they are honestly one of THE best progressive rock bands to come out of Europe! Glad they can finally play the states after all these years and only at Reggies!!!!! PFM introduced new sounds, such as the synthesizer, to the Italian musical world. They were also among the first to combine symphonic classical and traditional Italian musical influences in a pop music context. Such innovations and their longevity…

3/28/14 Staff Pick: The Woggles

The easiest way to describe The Woggles Garage Rock, Psychedelic Pop, is to turn back the clock to the 60′s. Packed with the energy of today, The Woggles put on an electric interactive show not to be missed. Playing Reggies Music Joint on 3/28/14 Details Here “Go see a Woggles show. It will change your life” (Meredith Ochs, NPR All Songs Considered). Wherever they are, on tour around the world, the Woggles have always carried forth in the sprit of…

2/22/14 Staff Pick: The Amino Acids

Their Facebook Description says it all. “Crash landed on this blue planet in your year 1965. Met J.R.”Bob” Dobbs, He told them to come back in semi-human form in 1998 and destroy the PINKS and NORMALS with AMINO-RAWK. That’s what they did for 14 years.

Staff Pick: Last False Hope in The Rock Club on 11/16/13

Last False Hope first gives me the feeling that I’ve heard this all before, until I get drawn in deeper by their irresistable sound. It’s the blend of genres in each song and quality of musicianship that just won’t let me tune out. Folk-Punk? Death-Country? Whatever you call it, it’s loud and it’s fresh. LFH could be on the verge of hitting it huge! Tune them in on the Reggies site then head down to the Rock Club to hear…

10-31-13 Staff Pick “Classic Album Night”

The soundtrack to Saturday Night Fever AND Michael Jackson’s Thriller all on the same Classic Albums night? Are you kidding me? I’m in heaven. You could easily say each of these albums defined the pop music of their decade. Saturday Night Fever brought ‘disco fever’ to the masses in the late 70′s and catapulted John Travolta from Mr. Kotter’s classroom onto the big screen to stay. The music will forever be what you think of first when you think of…
