The Scoop: Talk about an interesting night; Not only will the incredible Lady Starlight be spinning sets of superb Glam and Punk Rock music over the course of the night, but we will also be getting a set of tunes by The Dirty Pearls, Breedlove and Ariana & The Rose. This late evening event is sure to set a standard in midnight music madness that will continue on and with this being the case, I am happy to let you know that thanks to Livenation, a couple of our readers will be attending the show for free.

Opener: Dirty Pearls
Date: 9/24/2010

After having been a Motley Crue fan from their almost beginning I had a general level of excitement at the prospect of being able to enjoy Vince Neil doing his thing as a solo artist. The singer had recently released a solo album of covers and I had to say that I really enjoyed “Tattoos and Tequila” more than I thought I would have. I state my views like this because I had really grown tired of this angle being used by artists to sell records and had honestly had my fill of “cover albums” by this point. Vince’s however was a perfect selection of the tunes and everything on it worked. That’s never a bad thing. The show tonight would be at Irving Plaza, a venue that was recently re-christened to this time honored name from The Fillmore NY at Irving Plaza which it had been operating under for a couple of years. Believe me I welcomed that and had been tired of the tongue twisting new name.

It was now Sunday, the day of “rest” and Mother’s Day to boot, but there is no such a thing as slowing down the pace when you are wandering the Rock and Roll life seeking to jot down notes about all of the amazing happenings for the Metal Republic. For many fans this was actually event number three of a three night straight concert extravaganza that was happening in this part of the city. Friday night was Finland’s HIM who performed with We Are The Fallen and Dommin; while Saturday was the legendary Accept and looking back on them I could not believe just how good each of those shows were. Of course, tonight was guaranteed to be a special occasion as well for it was the long overdue return of Hanoi Rock’s Michael Monroe. The legendary and influential Glam Rock singer had not toured around these parts in almost a dozen years according to what I had learned and this gig at the Highline Ballroom was going to pull out all the stops from beginning to end. Monroe would bring along The Last Vegas and The Dirty Pearls as his openers and since each of the bands were of interest to me I got inside nice and early to bring you the best possible information on it.
