HCTM brought their brand of “terrifying funk from beyond the grave” to our stage for the first of their three 2016 concerts at The Note. Their sound has been described as a cross between Fitz & the Tantrums and the Mighty Mighty Bosstones. This particular show highlighted how fun their indoor shows thanks to their killer production.

Here Come the Mummies were just one of the amazing acts that headlined in our Summerfest series last summer. Even in the extreme heat, these mysterious guys donned their full mummy disguises and took the time to meet a few fans after the show.

Calling All Ninjas: Datsik Show Preview

Where: The Blue Note

When: Wednesday, Feb. 15. Doors at 9 p.m.

Tickets: $22.50 advance // $25 day of show

Openers: Crizzly + Virtual Riot

COMO, I have some good news for you. Datsik is about to kick off EDM season with a bang…and it’s going to be nasty.

Datsik has already kicked off his Ninja Nation Tour 2017 and his next stop is here at The Blue Note. Datsik says his main goal when he hits the stage is to “embody what it is to be a rave ninja.” He adds, “We’ve got a ton of dope surprises waiting for you with this one, so get ready to have some fun!”

Dope surprises? That sounds like my kind of concert. In addition to being an amazing EDM artist and producer, Datsik founded his own label, Firepower Records. Boss ninja status for sure.

Datsik has recently released SENSEI EP on Dec. 16. The EP is sure to be a focal point of his tour. From his bass-filled single “Just Sayain,” to his head-bang worthy collaboration with Excision “Redemption,” and his hip-hop/bass single “Fly Low” feat. Chatterbox, it’s guaranteed to be a night to remember.

 

If you’re not yet convinced that this show will be the time of your life, check out this footage of people at a Datsik concert not too long ago.

 

There are so many reasons to come to Datsik this Wednesday. My top reasons are to dance my booty off, forget about all of my responsibilities for a couple of hours, but most importantly, to go wild with my friends. This may or may not include some serious head-banging and hair-flipping. This will be one of the craziest concerts of the season. Tickets are almost gone but it’s not too late to be a ninja for the night and get your freak on. See you all there.

Rebelution: Show review

Talk about feel-good, hip-swinging music. If you missed this, you missed a great concert. Try not to get too down on yourself about it though, because you have me to fill you in on what you may have (but hopefully didn’t) miss.

I have start by admitting that I was a stranger to Rebelution and their amazing music before this show. I had no idea what I was missing out on. I decided to go to the concert on a whim, and I am so glad I did.

Being a front row fanatic, I ran up to the balcony as soon as I got there so I could take it all in. This was the first thing I saw:

I instantly picked up on the infectious rhythm. I remember looking out on the crowd, seeing all the fans moving to the music and I felt it immediately. At that moment, I knew I had discovered a new type of music that gives me a euphoric feeling that I crave.

So I put my phone down, closed my eyes, felt a huge grin fill my face and let the music take over.

One of my favorite parts of attending concerts is the unique production that each band or artist brings to the venue. Rebelution’s production was out of this world and while I tried to capture it, there’s no way these pictures could do it justice.

And this amazing guitar solo. I got lost in the lights while recording this video.

I don’t know what it was about this next song but I couldn’t help but dance to it. This song had the best beat and rhythm and it made my soul come alive.

The name of the song is “Roots Reggae Music.” Here’s the record version for you to play on repeat in case you like it as much as I do.

One thing I absolutely loved about this whole experience was the overarching message that Rebelution stands for. In the middle of the concert, Eric Rachmany (the lead singer) paused, looked at the cheering crowd and said “We are on a mission to promote love, peace and acceptance for everybody’s differences in this world.”
