a to z bucket list: KISS in concert

Can you believe that I’ve never seen KISS in concert? I can’t either.

I have watched two seasons of Gene Simmon’s reality show but no live concerts. Gene Simmons in footie pajamas is one of my favorite things in the world.

So this summer, my boyfriend and I are going to the Chicago Open Air Festival. KISS was the deciding factor between that show and Rock on the Range. We’re driving three extra hours.

It will all be worth it so I can cross the KISS concert off of the bucket list.

Sleep Deprived Music Review: Mosey

mosey

 

What band? Name of album

Mosey. The Way We Remember. Their record label is Know Hope Records.

Genre

They are listed under alternative rock and punk rock. I think they are alternative and slightly punk.

Is it good?

It’s a pretty decent album. I have no complaints. It’s a little more laid back than what I usually listen to on the radio.

Is it different?

Not exactly. Sometimes every band sounds like ten other bands to me.

Does it remind you of other bands?

It reminds me a little bit of Weezer. Not entirely. I think the lead singer sounds like the singer for Death Cab for Cutie.

Would you recommend it to other people?

Yeah, I think other people will like it. It’s not offensive. Hardly any cursing or screaming. So if you like cursing and screaming, you might not like this album as much.

Did you enjoy listening to the album?

Yes, it was enjoyable. I didn’t feel like stabbing myself in the ears so that is a plus.The song, “By Heart,”is also really good.

I like the song “Know Your Hair.” However, I am obsessed with my hair.

 

Where can you find it?

On a scale of 1 to 5.

I’m terrible at giving scores. How about a 3.5?

 


Sleep Deprived Music Review: Eva Under Fire

evaunderfire2

 

What band? Name of album

Eva Under Fire. War. Their record label is Golden Dragon Records

The band members are as follows:
Amanda Lyberg – Vocals
Rob Lyberg – Guitar
Jeff Llewellyn – Bass/Vocals
Corey Newsome – Drums
Chris Slapnix – Guitar/Vocals

Genre

Rock and roll. Emphasis on the rock.

Is it good?

Yeah, I think it is. I was going to see them live but they cancelled. They’re from Detroit so there’s still a possibility of seeing them sooner than later.

 

Is it different?

Not necessarily. However, it’s still a pretty rockin’ album. I can see myself dancing around the house while listening to it.

Every song has a lot of energy. It could be the album that keeps me moving even though I’d rather be sleeping.

Does it remind you of other bands?

It reminds me of Lita Ford if she was the lead singer for the Black Veil Brides. It’s not a totally bad idea. . . .

Would you recommend it to other people?

Yes. Go listen to it.

Did you enjoy listening to the album?

I really did enjoy it. I will be listening to it again soon. My favorite song was “Good Morning Misery.”

Where can you find it?

Spotify, Google Play, Bandcamp.

You can also find t-shirts and other merchandise on Bandcamp. Eva Under Fire also has a Facebook Page and are on Twitter.

On a scale of 1 to 5 stars.

I would give it a  3.5 out of five stars.

Confession: #blogtober16 

After blogging for three  years, I don’t have that many secrets left to tell. There is something that I want to tell but then again it could ruin everything. I may be exaggerating again.

Most of the time, I listen to rock and roll music. When my kids are in the car, the music is generally Top 40 – only because it’s light and fluffy. If the music is light and fluffy, then my kids are not so aggressive and angry. Happy kids = Happy mom.

So here it is . . . . every night when I’m driving to work, I listen to the Sweat Hotel with Keith Sweat. It’s old school R & B. It’s intoxicating and I can’t help it. It’s like honey for my ears or something.

No one knows. Not my kids. Not my boyfriend. Not my mother. Nobody. . . . There’s a little Keith Sweat reference for you.

Keith Sweat: Nobody

There’s also a section of the show called “What’s Your Confession?” Coincidence? Possibly.

12 Favorite concerts: #blogtober16

Honestly, I have been to many, many concerts. It’s hard to say which one was the best. So I’m going to name my top twelve favorite concerts. I tried to just live five or ten but I could not do it.

1. Santana. It was an amazing show. Unfortunately, I can’t find any pictures. I think my camera was broken or misplaced.
2. Joni Mitchell. She did an album of jazz standards. I think she still sounds great no matter what she sings.
3. Miss May I. They are awesome.

4. Chaka Khan. I could see the color of her eyeshadow. I had never been so close to the front stage before.

5. Stone Sour. Epic. I wish it didn’t have to end.

6. Lyrnrd skyrnd. They rock. Probably more than most of the young dudes in bands.

7. Parliament. I blame this concert for my hearing loss. This picture is so old that I had to login to Myspace to find it.

8. Being As an Ocean

12. Korn

I was hoping to see D’Angelo but he cancelled. I think he has potential to be my favorite.

This a summer, I missed every show that I wanted to see. Red Hot Chili Peppers. Prophets of Rage. Slipknot (FYI: I used to be able to tie a slipknot.) Whenever I get to take a vacation, I’m just going to concerts and the beach. Maybe a concert on the beach. I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed.
