icepicks october – love and a .38

Rock and Roll. I can try to make this a fancy review. I can even try to get "cute" with clever phrases and words found in a lot of reviews. But i'm going to take a cue from Love and a .38 and just come out and say it. Rock and Fucking Roll. There isn't much complex about this band and...

Heaven Below – Good Morning Apocalypse

Heaven Below – Good Morning Apocalypse

Concept albums are far from new. Most fall short of any individual goal to tell a story more so than just put out an album loosely tied together with the "concept" of a story that doesn't really get told in the album. The most notable examples of these I can remember would include Styx with Mr Roboto and KISS with their...

falling in love with violet janine

falling in love with violet janine

One of the best things about music is it lets you fall. in this case with a new release from Swedish rockers Violet Janine (ja-nine) you're going to fall in love. Lead singer Janine Nyman can certainly hold her own and her soulful edge comes through with emotions she's not even trying to hide. As you make your way though Between...

Lzzy and Lita and Dorothy, Oh My!

Lzzy and Lita and Dorothy, Oh My!

Yes, friends, it was girl’s night out last Thursday at Gas Monkey Live and it frickin rocked!  And I’m not referring to free drinks after 5pm for all the ladies at the bar (although that would have been a nice bonus).  Better yet, I am referring to the fact that last Thursday night was nothing but kick ass female fronted...

icepicks for september – stone and moxie and the influence

first up - STONE formed in 2010, this band out of philadelphia is certainly one to keep an eye on. Somewhere along the line a song has a way of getting personal. New song, new band, but out of the blue it’s 1970-something and it just got real. When listening to STONEs song “you made a promise” it just felt like...

a contest ends, let the music begin

recently we wrapped up our first promotion in conjunction with reverb nation and in the end over 3500 bands submitted their music for us to consider. no, we've not gone through each and every one as much as i would like to say we have. first and foremost we're a rock station so pop, country, rap, blues and any other format not...

Aaron Lee & The Gambling Souls

Aaron Lee & The Gambling Souls

I still remember seeing Aaron Lee for the first time in curtain club in his band paperface and in that brief introduction what stuck out the most was the passion he puts into the music in how he tells the story. The vocals pulled you in, the story kept you around, and the good times you’ll remember in that special...

Stylin and Profilin – An Evening with Joey C Jones

“I was stylin’ and profilin’ in elementary school, and knew what I wanted to do with my life when I was six years old.” said Joey C Jones, kicking back with his feet propped up when asked how it all began. Not many can point to such an age with such conviction but when questioned on how soon Joey knew...

icepicks – Grimm Jack, Random Dogs & Rainchild

Grimm Jack out of New York has been on Renegade off and on over the years. If you’ve heard the London Quire boys or Englands The Answser, you’ve got an idea of this simple sound with a melodic edge focused on roughing it up some around the vocals. They came back to us via Reverb Nations promotions we’re now running...

Stryper: Fallen 2016 Tour - Gas Monkey Live 7/1/16Jessica Kuyawa Stryper played at Gas Monkey Live Friday night as a stop on their Fallen tour.

Renegade Nation?

Renegade Nation?

In the culinary world I believe it’s called a “fusion” when you merge 2 ideas into 1. I’m sure in many areas it’s called a lot of things but when not rocking I’m usually feeding my food habit so this is a handy reference to me. J Not long ago the twisted one came to me and said that reverb...

icepicks for july

from reviews to simply playing these guys week in and week out (and still never getting tired of ANYTHING to this point), shamans harvest has gone from someone who got my attention, like many bands, a few years ago but in their release running around the internet now, Smokin Hearts & Broken Guns, they're certainly taking their game to the next...

Have I Mentioned Windows 10 SUCKS?!?!?

The reason you are not listening to a new episode of The Stairwell Showcase tonight is because Windows 10 has killed my inner child and my ability to broadcast.  I tried to fight off the free upgrade to this piece of shit operating system as best I could, but NO!   One day, it decided to download itself onto one...

Redline Drive – Friction; Deja Vu for the Very First Time

When you head to a Stryper show, you already know you’re in for a touch of retro. By touch, I mean “welcome to 1980-something for a few hours, we hope you enjoy your stay.” I expected to go “holy hell I heard this back in….” and then conveniently choose to NOT remember anything else out of respect for my ongoing...

tomorrows classics, today – this generation is screwed
