Win To See Texas Hippie Coalition In NYC On 7/27/2013

Poster - Texas Hippie Coalition at Gramercy - 2013

The Details: I’d be lying to you if I said that I knew a whole lot about the Texas Hippie Coalition because I don’t. I managed to see them only once before in concert and that was a special appearance at the annual CMJ party held by Skateboard Marketing over at the Bowery Poetry Club. It was a solid set but to my knowledge the band had not returned since that time. I guess the best way to analyze the style is to compare it as a not too distant kin of Hell Yeah so fans of that band might want to check them out n the stage. This all makes me excited to announce the latest contest thanks to our friends at Livenation who want to put some PiercingMetal fans into the Gramercy Theatre where the band will appear with Eve To Adam as direct support for their “Highway Robbery Tour”. The NYC show will also feature Black Water Rising and Eye Ra Haze. Read more on how to enter this one.

Lizzy Borden @ The Bell House (6/1/2010)

You know you are in for an entertaining night when Lizzy Borden comes a calling and wishes to give the Metal Republic forty whacks. It’s been a little over a year since we caught the band when they opened up for Lordi over at Irving Plaza which was at the time called The Fillmore NY (thank the Metal gods that they changed that name back) so I was looking forward to seeing them in action again. To see photos and review text from that Monster Mash of a Metal time just click HERE. There were also a couple of other reasons that this show piqued my interest and they included the band Black Water Rising who were opening up and that the entire affair would be held at The Bell House which was a new venue to me. You can read our views about the gig and enjoy all of the photos by clicking the bands logo below, and then continue on for some other stuff that’s only presented in this blog posting.

Artist: Lizzy Borden
Venue: The Bell House (Brooklyn, NY)
Opener: Black Water Rising
Date: 6/1/2010
Label: Metal Blade Records

This evening’s entertainment sure got off to a very rocky start and there was no doubt about it. First of all, the venue called The Bell House while being a relatively new one was still growing in popularity but as one of my friends had said, was not really the place for a knock down Metal show. With this in mind I had a lot of curiosity when the L.A. maniac Lizzy Borden and the band that bore his name had announced that a gig would be happening here. The venue is located in Brooklyn and not too far away from my home so in some sense I was looking forward to a shorter trek home depending on the hour that the show would actually end.
