The Steel Panther lads take their craft seriously; even if the act is of a jocular flair. It’s rather impressive how this spoof outfit molded a niche within the industry and redefined how success in music is measured.
Showmen like no others, the gang of Five Finger Death Punch rolled into Atlanta to kick ass and take names — musically that is. Performing to a packed Verizon Amphitheatre, Ivan Moody and his mates came, saw, and conquered the thousands on hand. A spectacle of humongous proportions, the night was lit up with raging tunes, a gigantic laser-beaming skull, dynamic strobes, and, of course, fucking fire.
So write it down! Atlanta’s Central Park on September 8th and 9th, 2018. Be ready to submerge into a hip-hop takeover like no other.
Slayer has always been more than just music, Slayer is an inspiration, Slayer is an identity. The boys may have move on from the live setting, but their tunes will keep heads banging for generations to come. And that’s quite a fucking legacy.
Hip-Hop has seen many pioneers over the years: wordsmiths like Tupac and Nas, innovators like Kany West, smooth operators like Snoop Dogg, behind-the-scenes wizards like Dre and Puff, rapid-fire maestros like Busta Rhymes, and game-changers like Eminem, Biggie Smalls or Kendrick Lamar. Nonetheless, there’s always space for exciting new talent, and as of right now, we’re placing a big bet on Denzel Curry. He is to-the-core impressive on TA13OO.
Overall, the night ran smoothly and joyous. Both Weezer and Pixies are masters of their craft. As fans, the chance to observe these talented legends at work is concert-going at its finest. In the end, Weezer, Pixies, and Sleigh Bells all lived-up to the expectations — and then obliterated them — which sent their base home with ear-to-ear smiles.
Sooner or later, someone will organize and run a new yearly gathering in the flair of the out-going Warped Tour. Nonetheless, there will never be another soiree quite like the one Mr. Kevin Lyman gave use for 24 years.
