Michale Graves laid down a nearly two hour set of his solo stuff as well as some of his classic Misfits tracks as his “Radio Deadly Acoustic Tour” made its scheduled stop at Rockstar/Peabody’s in Cleveland this past Saturday.
Getting in the solo tour before heading back out with his current band Marky Ramone’s Blitzkrieg who will be kicking off an extensive two month tour outside the country in Bogota, Columbia on May 19th. Graves posted on his website on February 26 “we’re still figuring out the American tour tentatively scheduled for later this year”, when asked about The Blitzkrieg finally making its way to the US this past Saturday, “Hopefully soon” was the only thing Graves was able to say. Graves kicked off this weekends set with The Blitzkrieg’s second single “If And When” which was released on iTunes on March 4.
The “Radio Deadly Acoustic Tour” supports Michale Graves’ new radio show Radio Deadly which he puts on through Blog Talk Radio. The most recent “Radio Deadly” show featured former Blitzkid front man TB Monstrosity, where he conducted his first interview since leaving Blitzkid with Graves. Both the tour and radio show take their namesake from Graves’ song “Radio Deadly” from his 2005 album “Punk Rock Is Dead”.
Easily one of the hardest working guys in Punk music today with all his music projects, acting (appearing in the horror film Perkins’ 14) and his political involvement (still one of the most vocal supporters of Damien Echols and the West Memphis Three). The show this past Saturday was no different, spending the time leading up to and following the show at his merch table taking pictures and signing anything people purchased. That combined with the nearly two hour set where Graves did his best to field any and all request that the crowd shouted out to him made for one of the most satisfying concert going experiences this reviewer has ever attended.
If you are looking to get your moneys worth from a show, keep an eye out for Michale Graves coming to a venue near you.
