FIRST BLOOD – + FIGHT AGAINST MONUMENTS

FIRST BLOOD – + FIGHT AGAINST MONUMENTS
Event on 2017-07-04 20:30:00

FIRST BLOOD : n. Straight-forward, metal-edged hardcore mosh : Pissed-off lyrics : In-your-face message : Formed in 2002 in the legendary San Francisco Bay Area California USA

"We just wanted to play brutally aggressive music that was right to the point so kids could kill each other on the dancefloor, scream-along, and vent their frustrations" states frontman Carl Schwartz about the band's early, no-frills attitude. "We never thought or expected we would be playing shows outside of California, let alone San Francisco." That would soon change…

The word spread quickly with the self-release of their crushing 5-song DEMO 2002 (later reissued by Bridge9 spin-off Division36 Records.) Followed shortly by their 2004 split 7" Dead Man's Hand Series EP with Blacklisted via Deathwish Inc, the path would soon be paved for a full-length First Blood studio release.

Upon the release of their 2006 debut album entitled "Killafornia", First Blood would soon light radar screens across 30+ countries around the world, with countless tours across the United States, Canada, Mexico, Europe, United Kingdom, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, South America, China, South East Asia, and beyond. Sharing the stage with world-class acts such as Agnostic Front, Biohazard, Comeback Kid, Cro-Mags, Crowbar, Deez Nuts, Earth Crisis, Exodus, The Ghost Inside, Gorilla Biscuits, Hatebreed, Heaven Shall Burn, H2O, Ignite, Killswitch Engage, Madball, Napalm Death, The Path Of Resistance, Rancid, Sick Of It All, Sleeping Giant, Stick To Your Guns, Strife, Terror, Thy Art Is Murder, and many more, First Blood has become an unstoppable force and staple of the underground music community.

"A time comes when silence is betrayal." As the world was yet again descending to the depths of war, death, and division, 2010 marked the release of the band's highly anticipated sophomore album entitled "Silence Is Betrayal" (via Bullet Tooth Records). This long-awaited concept album marked a strong lyrical shift and focus on the ongoing violence, deception, injustice, and corruption that was crippling the world (and continues to this day), while maintaining a soundtrack that was every bit as true-to-form to the brutal musical aggression many have come to expect of the band. Featuring 16 tracks of musical devastation and lyrical condemnation, vocalist Carl Schwartz hopes to raise awareness and inspire listeners. "With the criminals of this world becoming more powerful, we must constantly question authority, challenge the status quo when we see injustice, and always stand up for what we believe to be the change we wish to see in this world."

Continuing the spirit of hope and inspiration, First Blood celebrated their ten year anniversary with their 2012 release, aptly entitled "Inspiration Vol.I", featuring ten crushing new renditions of classic anthems by Hatebreed, Sick Of It All, Earth Crisis, Path Of Resistance, Agnostic Front, Madball, Biohazard, and more, all re-recorded in First Blood style. Paying tribute to some of their biggest influences in music and life, frontman Carl Schwartz explains, "If it weren't for some of these bands, First Blood would never have existed." First Blood "Inspiration Vol. I" (FBI) is an Internet-only digital release and is available for free download at http://www.firstbloodrules.com

"Good things come to those who wait." At least, that's what the rule says… Fast forward to 2017, First Blood is finally ready to unleash their long-awaited, third full-length studio album, simply entitled "RULES" via the mighty Pure Noise Records. Produced by recording mastermind Will Putney at Graphic Nature Studios (formerly known as The Machine Shop) in Belleville, NJ USA, "RULES" features 12 tracks of the band's hardest, yet most inward-looking material to date. Elaborating on the album title, vocalist Carl Schwartz adds, "Rules are everywhere. Explicit rules. Unwritten rules. Unspoken rules. The rule of law. Some rules we accept. Others we hate or choose to ignore. Frequently, those who set the rules are found guilty of breaking those rules. Many have become victims of the rules they live by, either by conquest or consent. I hope that, after listening to this album and reading the lyrics, we can revisit and remind ourselves of the very essence of the underground music scene: Living our own lives by our own rules."

"We are also really proud to now be part of the Pure Noise roster", Carl continues, "and super excited to release our newest efforts with a team who not only saw us play live back in our early San Francisco Bay Area California days, but a team that has worked hard to create a tremendous record label that continues to make a huge impact on the underground music scene around the world."

First Blood "RULES" is available worldwide on February 10, 2017 via Pure Noise Records.

Jonah Tolchin & Helen Rose

Jonah Tolchin & Helen Rose
Event on 2017-07-02 20:00:00
Sun 7/02 • 8:00pm

Immediately after Jonah Tolchin finished recording his new album, ‘Thousand Mile Night,’ he got behind the wheel and lived it, driving from Muscle Shoals, Alabama, all the way back to his native New Jersey with guitarist Lucas Hamren in one straight shot. By the time the car finally coasted into Hamren’s driveway in the early dawn light, the odometer had accumulated 998 miles. The journey wasn’t quite over yet, though. Tolchin said his goodbyes, gathered his things from the back seat, and began the walk to his childhood home on nearby Clover Lane. It was precisely two more miles.

The universe is full of signs if you’re open to them, and for Jonah Tolchin, there could be no clearer omen than the mileage of that epic trip: he’d had made the perfect album for the perfect moment in his life. Recorded at the legendary FAME Studios (Wilson Pickett, Otis Redding, Aretha Franklin), ‘Thousand Mile Night’ charts the young songwriter’s remarkable growth, both personally and artistically, as he digs deep into the roots of American music with a distinctly modern perspective, tackling everything from love and marriage to life on the road to loneliness and depression with a deft lyrical touch.

The album follows Tolchin’s acclaimed Yep Roc debut, ‘Clover Lane,’ which was recorded in Nashville with a slew of special guests including Los Lobos’ Steve Berlin and Deer Tick’s John McCauley. NPR called Tolchin “a promising new artist who artfully occupies the gulf between old-school tradition and contemporary appropriation,” while Uncut said he “demonstrates the finesse and maturity of someone like Jason Isbell,” and Mojo praised him for “adding raw, punk brio to a folk-blues template.” Tolchin racked up more than three million plays on Spotify with tracks from the record and toured the US and Europe extensively in support of it, sharing bills with artists like Chuck Prophet, Dave and Phil Alvin, Gregg Allman, Joseph Arthur, and more along the way. When he wasn’t on the road, Tolchin was busy showing off his talents behind the board as a producer, heading to Nashville’s Bomb Shelter to helm an album for Bill Scorzari and bringing bluesy soul singer Julie Rhodes to record at FAME, where he made such a powerful connection with engineer John Gifford III that he knew he had to return there for ‘Thousand Mile Night.’

When it came time to record, Tolchin doubled down on the same raw approach that made ‘Clover Lane’ such an infectious collection, performing live as a band in the studio and recording and mixing the entire album start-to-finish in a staggering four days.

“I work very well under pressure,” Tolchin explains. “If I had three weeks to make a record, I don’t know what would happen. There’s something about having this pressure to create on a deadline that helps me as an artist. We didn’t have the luxury to over-think anything.”

Tolchin once again teamed up with producer/multi-instrumentalist Marvin Etzioni, who helped shepherd ‘Clover Lane,’ and rounded out the band with Hamren on guitar, Michael Bosco on drums, and Jamie McFarlane (son of legendary Muscle Shoals musician Will McFarlane) on bass. Rather than prep everyone for the whirlwind sessions, though, Tolchin kept them in the dark until it was time to press record.

“I purposely didn’t show anyone besides Marvin the songs,” he explains. “I don’t like anyone to chart anything out in the studio. I like them to make it up as they go along. I want everyone to play what they feel is the right thing to play.”

The result is free-wheeling and instinctual, the rare sound of a group of artists discovering the magic and mystery in the songs at the same time as they reveal themselves to the listener. It all begins with album opener “Beauty In The Ugliest Days,” a beautiful showcase of Tolchin’s young-man-with-an-old-soul brand of heartfelt philosophy featuring a performance by Bob Marley drummer “Santa” Davis. It’s a song of resilience, a gentle dose of Zen reassurance in the face of doubt that every dark cloud does indeed come with a silver lining.

“I was on an airplane sitting on the runway in Los Angeles, and I got a call from Marvin,” remember Tolchin. “He had just spoken to a friend of his from school that he’d lost touch with along time ago, and it turned out this friend had been living on the streets. He said,’ Marvin, I have this title for a song called ‘It’s Up To You To See The Beauty In The Ugliest Of Days.’ He started talking to Marvin about this concept, and then Marvin called me right away, and I’d finished writing the song before we even took off.”

There are some ugly days on this record, to be sure, from “Song About Home”—written during an unhappy stint living on the West Coast in the Olympia apartment complex —to “Where The Hell Are All My Friends”—an apocalyptic, Tom Waits-esque musing on time spent alone—but Tolchin takes the lesson to heart and always pushes deeper to find moments of transcendence and redemption. He embraces change and uncertainty throughout the record, singing “All the wise men say / That they know nothing at all” on “Workin’ Man Blues #22” and surrendering himself to the all-encompassing power of true love on “Completely,” which features Joaquin Cooder on drums. Elsewhere, “Unless You Got Faith” is an ode to trusting in your gut, “Hard Time Killing Floor Blues” resurrects the Skip James classic, and “I Wonder” is a rollicking note-to-self to accept things as they are.

“I can get in these existential mindsets where I’ll get very philosophical,” says Tolchin. “I’ll want to know the answer, and I won’t want to rest until I find it. This song was a reminder that sometimes you can just wonder about something and that’s all. There doesn’t have to be an answer. The process of wondering is one of the most beautiful things about being human.”

With an album this outstanding, we don’t have to wonder much about what’s in store for Jonah Tolchin. It’s safe to say there will be many more thousand-mile nights in his future as he takes these songs across the country and around the world, bringing beauty and truth and silver linings wherever he goes, “driving all night,” as he sings, “on a little bit of faith.”BAND WEBSITE

Casey Donovan
Thursday, July 13

Casey Donovan is one of Australia’s most versatile Indigenous Entertainers.

After a meteoric rise to fame at the age of 16, Casey became the youngest ever winner of Australian Idol in 2004. Over the last twelve years, Donovan has made her mark not only as a musician, but also in the areas of stage, screen, presenting and writing. Casey is a multi-Award winner & nominee, including an ARIA No #1 Award for Listen with Your Heart and Deadly Awards for Best Album, Best Single and Most Promising New Talent.

After taking a break from music, Casey returned to the music arena with the release of her hotly anticipated single Big, Beautiful & Sexy. As a result of this inspirational song, she not only garnered new fans Australia-wide, but also became a poster girl for fuller-figured women. Casey took her Big, Beautiful & Sexy ethos further by touring in her own show, which has seen the remarkable singer perform to sell-out crowds at some of the country’s most coveted venues and participate in events such as Adelaide Festival, Brisbane Festival, The Rocks Festival of the Voice, Tandanya National Aboriginal Cultural Institute’s Spirit Festival, Darwin Festival and Yabun Festival.

Casey has also headlined her own Mama Cass Tribute concerts and supported the legendary Cyndi Lauper on her Australian National Tour.

Under the direction of Rhoda Roberts, Casey made her theatrical debut in Miracle In Brisbane for the Brisbane Festival. This was to be the first of many acclaimed theatrical performances, including The Flowerchildren (Magnormos), As You Like It (Company B), Opera Yarrabah (Opera Australia) and The Sapphires (Company B / Black Swan State Theatre Company), RENT (Hayes Theatre) and in 2016 Donovan starred in We Will Rock You (Andrew Pole/Ben Elton). Casey’s stage credits have earned her respect from the industry, which has seen her receive a nomination for Best Newcomer and Best Performance by an Actress in a Musical in the Sydney Theatre Awards.

Over the span of her illustrious career, Casey has appeared on many television programs including; The Morning Show, Sunrise, 20 to 1, Today Show, Studio 10, Fusion, Yarramundi Kids, Spicks and Specks, Good Morning Australia, Rove Live and many more. As a presenter, she was host of the 2011 and 2012 Deadly Awards and presented her own indigenous music themed show Fusion on SBS/NITV during 2012 and 2013.

In 2014 Casey captivated readers with her autobiography Big, Beautiful & Sexy (New Holland Publishers) and made her mark in the plus size fashion market, becoming an emcee and ambassador for the Curvy Couture Roadshow in Melbourne, plus becoming featured writer for international publications such as Pink Blitz, and Plus Model Magazine.

In January 2017, Casey was announced as a cast member of the third series of I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here which was filmed on location in South Africa. After six grueling weeks in the jungle, Donovan went on to be crowned QUEEN of the Jungle by vote of the Australian Public, her second reality TV win by a public vote. Casey’s appearance on the hit network 10 series has seen the versatile entertainer win an outpouring of love and support from Australian audiences, which has fuelled her popularity even further and will no doubt fuel her comeback even further.

In other exciting news, Casey has completed work on her highly anticipated new EP, which was crowd funded in 2016 by her biggest supporters. Donovan’s new single will be out within weeks, and the new EP can be expected by mid 2017, with a series of live an intimate shows around the country to reconnect Casey with music lovers and her biggest supporters.

Casey continues to lend her name and support to a number of charitable and non-profit organisations in her roles as Ambassador for APRA/AMCOS, Advocate for the National Centre of Indigenous Excellence, advocate for National Indigenous Ear Health Campaign and as one of the founding members of the New South Wales Indigenous Chamber of Commerce.

Travel is an investment and anything could happen and you may have to cancel. Ask for me for details when you call.   Sailing Away Has Never Been More Affordable   Cruising was once a travel option reserved for the wealthy and well-to-do. But due to the massive growth this industy has seen in recent decades, cruising has become much more accessible. Should you consider a cruise for your next vacation? Here are ten reasons to go for it:   1. Wake Up Each Morning in a Different Port   Hotel-based vacations cannot compete in this area. On a cruise, your "hotel" floats from place to place allowing you to see many points of interest on a single trip. There's nothing quite like going to sleep in Antigua and waking up in St. Thomas. Just one cruise will leave you feeling like an experienced traveller.   2. First-Class Food   Cruising is perhaps best known for the food. And believe me, the food has a well-deserved reputation. From 'round-the-clock buffets to elegant dining halls to specialty restaurants, your options are overwhelming. But be watchful for cruise lines that seem to be cutting corners in the food department — I was personally underwhelmed on a recent Norwegian cruise. Read other travellers' cruise reviews ahead of time to know what to expect. I can personally vouch for Disney and Princess cruises!   3. Plenty of Fun in the Sun   Most cruises set sail to tropical destinations, where warm sunny weather is the rule. Just make sure to bring lots of sunscreen. In addition to the ship's pool(s) and sun deck, you'll have opportunities to take in breath-taking beaches at your stops. Several of the major cruise lines operate their own private islands, which are geared almost exclusively to beach activities. Have no fear–sun-phobics will have plenty to do if they remain onboard or choose try out non-beach excursions.   4. Great Entertainment   Vegas-style shows, comedians of all kinds, game shows, music and dancing, you name it. Cruise ships offer it. A highlight aboard the Norwegian Dawn is the Cirque du Soleil-style dancing and acrobatics show, while the Disney Magic offers up a different comedian every night working a different genre, from straight stand-up to juggling to ventriloquism. Every night there is something to suit anyone's tastes. You'll get a daily newsletter delivered to your cabin each day listing times and locations of every show.     5. Meet New People   Most cruises still follow the traditional dinner dining schedule, meaning your party is assigned a table at a specific time every night. Unless your party takes up an entire table, you will be seated with other travellers. Many new friendships are formed in this way. Do not worry, though, if you are a more private person. Some cruise lines have broken out of the traditional dining mold and allow parties of any size to dine privately at the time of their choosing–even tables for two are available. Princess and Norwegian both offer this new style. However, many cruise-goers find they enjoy the company of their fellow travellers. Carnival, Celebrity, Royal Caribbean and others remain traditional.   6. See Exotic Wildlife   Whether it's whales and seals in Alaska or stingrays and tropical birds in the Caribbean, one highlight of many people's cruises is the interaction with local wildlife. On my last cruise, I had the pleasure of swimming amongst beautiful tropical fish. These experiences will leave a long-lasting impression of your trip!   7. Shopping Deals Abound   When you're out of your home country, taxes no longer apply–that is, up to a certain point. Cruise travellers find great deals on jewely, alcohol, designer accessories, and more. Once aboard your cruise, you will be provided with information about limitations that apply. You're likely to find that your cruise ship lists recommended vendors and offers greater buyer protections when you shop at these establishments. Attend the onboard shopping seminars if you have any questions.   8. Enjoy 5-Star Service   Expect nightly turn-down service and mints on the pillow. Expect a head waiter, assistant waiter, and possibly a sommelier to attend to your every need at dinner. Expect random cruise staff to greet you and offer assistance for anything you may need. As Celebrity Cruise Line says, expect to be treated like royalty. This is part of the cruise experience.   9. No Flying (Maybe)   Most metropolitan areas near the coast are within driving distance to ports where cruise ships sail out from. If you hate to fly but are lucky enough to live near a cruise port, you're set! However, if you do have to fly to your cruise, consider making your own flight arrangements rather than selecting a package deal through the cruise line. This can save you hundreds of dollars. Just be sure to give yourself ample time to account for the chance that your flight is delayed.   10. Because You Deserve It!   This is what it ultimately comes down to. You work hard all year long, don't you deserve a little indulgence? With prices dropping the way they have, the deals are out there. So take a week off to recharge and rejuvenate–you'll be glad you did!   There are more reasons to cruise than these ten, of course. Gaming in the onboard casino, exotic spa treatments, karaoke competitions, champagne art auctions, wine and martini tasting, midnight chocolate dessert buffets, sunsets from your balcony, and afternoon tea are some more ways to pass the time while you travel. You'll have an unforgettable time. Happy cruising!       Passport not required for travel but suggested.   If you do not have a passport you must have your original birth certificate or a certified copy of your birth certificate and a state issued ID.   Please call Kym at 214 537 0453 for details
