September 21, 2009 drainu182 2

This past Friday, we had the pleasure of attending the Chevelle show at the Starland Ballrom in Sayreville, NJ. We have to first start off by saying, we do not dislike Halestorm but we were annoyed that Burn Halo opened the show and not Halestorm. Burn Halo rocked the place for about a half hour. Unfortunately for Burn Halo, the crowd was a complete bore and still walking in and trying to get their $5 bud lights. Regardless, they were …

On Thursday night, fun. played a sold out show at the Mercury Lounge in New York. They were incredible. Frontman Nate sang every song like it was his last and the crowd seemed much obliged to sing the songs back to him as well. Nate mixed in a couple songs from his old band, The Format, with songs off of fun.’s debut album, Aim & Ignite(iTunes, Amazon MP3, CD). Check out the setlist above the …

Those Harry Potter boys love Gallows

Gallows, the punk rock outfit from the U.K., may not be the first band you would predict to hit the gossip rags but that’s exactly where they ended up. When Harry Potter’s own Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) and Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) arrived in disguise to watch Gallows perform at the U.K.’s Reading Festival this past week, the band snapped a picture which ended up on People magazine’s website of all places. After watching Gallows rock Reading, Daniel and Rupert …

The Audio Perv had the chance to catch Nine Inch Nails at Terminal 5 last night for the 3rd NYC show of NIN’s Wave Goodbye Tour. The Horrors opened and they were respectable but kind of forgettable. It was hot, sweaty and packed. NIN came on at around 9:05 and played for about 140 minutes. Peter Murphy from Bauhaus (BLAH!) was introduced by Trent Reznor as the guy who first took NIN on board into NYC many years ago. Murphy …

Green Day played another packed show at Madison Square Garden in New York City tonight (7/28). They played for about 2 hours and 50 minutes, which was longer than the previous night’s performance at the same venue. We weren’t there for the first show but we do know that this one was filled with industry booking people like superagent Nick Storch. Anyways, the band played less than half of their new album 21st Century Breakdown(iTunes) leaving off …
