Rock Legend Alice Cooper To Headline Rock Carnival 2016: Friday Event

Much like the first go round for the Rock Carnival back in 2015, the returning event in 2016 is going to find me posting a number of broadcasts since there are several press releases getting sent out and many of them are expanding upon the coolness of the event. With that said, here is the recently received one that discusses how Alice Cooper would be headlining the Friday night part of the event. We’ve already shared how Twisted Sister will be performing the final East Coast gig and do that on Saturday. Anyway, here is the press piece.

The 2016 Rock Carnival Will Feature Twisted Sister’s Farewell East Coast Performance

I’m going to let this press release get right down to the nitty gritty since it came through a couple of days ago but I had other items set to run and I wanted every post to get the proper attention. So you might recall when we went to the Food Truck and Rock Carnival last year and wow what a time we had at that one. Such amazing bands like Anthrax, Clutch, Black Label Society, Slash and Godsmack along with so many more. Now the news has started circulating about the festivals return and with this years happening the East Coast is going to get the final appearance of Twisted Sister ever. Read on below the poster. Don’t worry I’ll be back with some additional thoughts.

“We Are Twisted F**king Sister” [Blu-ray] by Twisted Sister

Artist: Twisted Sister
Title: “We Are Twisted F**king Sister”
Label:
Eagle Vision
Release Date:
2/23/2016
Genre: Hard Rock/Heavy Metal Documentary
Rating: 4/5

Before I begin the discussion about this particular music history documentary, I must make the readership aware that I have been listening to the band Twisted Sister for a number of decades now and began my own personal journey with them around the time that the “Ruff Cuts” EP was released. Believe it or not I still have a copy of it somewhere in my collection of albums. That being said I was super interested in observing the documentary that Andrew Horn put together because it was not only going to give us insight from all of the band members that we know from the classic lineup, it would also get some insight from a former member or two and the people that worked closely alongside them at the very beginning.

Today Only: “We Are Twisted F**king Sister” @ Cinema Village (2/19/2016)

Attention NYC Twisted Sister fans; the brand new documentary “We Are Twisted F***ing Sister” is playing today at Cinema Village in NYC and there are four showings to choose from with the debut at 1:00PM. There is a 4:00PM, 7:00PM (and that one is followed by a Q&A with Jay Jay French and director Andrew Horn) along with a 10:00PM to choose from as well. Depending on your times of availability for the day you have some nice options but I would try and go to the one with the Q&A aspect since that should be interesting. Check out the poster below.

Just in case you missed my post from last month when I posted the trailer for the film, I have embedded that video below once more to keep it easy for you so you can see what you are in store for if you attend. It sure does look like fun and I cannot wait to see it as well. I don’t think I can attend today so will just have to rely on the DVD/Blu-ray release.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’ll keep any additional thoughts about this to myself until I see the whole film and get to the review process. I will however leave you with the link to see all of our Twisted Sister related content on the website so you can be as up to date as possible. Just click HERE and it will bring you to everything that is tagged with the bands name. Have fun and if you have added thoughts about any of that Sister content feel free to leave your topical comments on the ones that speak to you the loudest.
