Cincinnati, Ohio

Cincinnati’s own “Livid” started the CD release show for the night with a very heavy rhythmic set. They are a very solid, fun, great sounding band that set the full house on a course to rock the night. Akron band “RedSun Rising”, was very well received and a lot of fans came out to see them adorned with the bands swag. Not a lot of theatrics just a band making hard and heavy great sounding music thrilling the crowd. RSR is on the road supporting their new album, “Polyester Zeal”, with songs like, “Push”, “Awake” and “The Otherside”.

From the time Pop Evil takes the stage and Leigh Kakaty belts out his first lyric till the last note of the last song, they are a proven rock machine. Starting their set with a well-known song in “Last Man Standing” brought everyone to the stage jumping and cheering for their favorite band. This night was special as everyone was anticipating the new tracks off the new album “UP” which was being released officially the 21st, the day after this concert. Nick Fuelling and Davey Grahs dueling guitars rang out through song after song and note after note along with their on stage fervor. The bands rhythm section in Drummer Chachi Riot and bassist Matt DiRito kept the music driving through the fans chests and into the foundation on Vine Street. Treating the crowd to new favorites such as “Dead in the Water”, “In Disarray” and “Ghost of Muskegon” resulted in overwhelming approval by all in attendance.

The night was an overall success with local area bands “Livid” and “Red Sun Rising” and Michigan neighbors “Pop Evil”. If you get a chance to check out the bands in your area do yourself a favor and get out to see them, you will enjoy the show.
