Skid Row comes to the Oswego County Event Center tomorrow with a ton of bands in support. Bands such as:
- Syn City Cowboys
- Stone Soul Foundation
- JJ Lang Band
- Nasty Habit
- Bound For The Floor
- Far From Over
- Crows Cage
- Storm Cell
- Ghetto Blasters
So the place will be rocking all day long and starts at 12 noon. Tix went for for $20 presale and will be $25 at the door. No coolers or re-entry will be allowed although a lawn chair is cool. The Center is located at 3 Godfrey Rd. Penneville, NY.
Skid Row has been through several line-up changes but has remained the same for going on five years now. The band went through some experimental stages as often happens when new faces come onboard, but the latest EP, United World Rebellion Chapter One, sees the band coming full circle with their past as well as the present and it stands out in the tunes. Many have said it kind of picks up where Monkey Business left off and as bassist Rachel Bolen told me, that’s very cool. Everything about this EP rocks out the way we all remember them doing and the good news is that there will be two more EPs released to complete the ‘album’ which will them be released with some extras as he told me. (RR-I did ask your question, so listen in on the interview)
It’s safe to say the metal and the attitude are back and so is the group0s penchant to write power ballads better than just about anyone else as you can here on the song ‘This Is Killing Me’ which I have a short clip off after the interview. There is also a short clip of the rocker ‘Let’s Go’ just before we kick off our chat.
So take a listen in, go get a ticket and go bang your head tomorrow with a plethora of killer local bands and others along with the behemoth that is Skid Row. The business is back, Monkey Business.
