The Rock Show: Off the Air

September 15, 2014

Back Off the Air! … And a Concert Listing, Too!

Filed under: Concert Listing, Update — Tags: , , , — rockshowmusic @ 9:10 pm

Welcome back to The Rock Show, where it’s all about the music!

Okay, I guess I have some splaining to do, huh?  Ever since The Rock Show ended in the spring of 2012, the blog seemed pretty irrelevant.  After all, there was no more Rock Show, so what purpose did the blog serve?  Over the past two years I’ve been just as active in following the music world, and in the meantime it’s been suggested to me that I keep the blog going.  So I’ve made a decision to rekindle the Rock Show blog.  This time there’s no affiliation with WLVR Bethlehem, nor is it a “professional” endeavor.  Which means I can talk about other radio stations and be a little less politically correct.  So there’s that.

What this means is that I’m going to try to keep this blog going with content about music.  Whether or not it follows a similar format to the past remains to be seen.

For my first post back, I’d like to talk about the fact that The Pretty Reckless and Adelitas Way hit the TLA on Saturday.  The Pretty Reckless is Taylor Momsen’s band, who released an album called Light Me Up back in 2011–if you remember, I ranked it as the #3 album of the year that year, and for good reason.  It kicks ass.  They also released a new album this year called Going to Hell.  Also a solid effort–I’d say it’s about equal to the debut release.  In between was an EP and a single, so they’ve had a pretty active couple of years.  On top of that, they’ve been getting some mainstream radio play in the Philly area now that WMMR has been playing “Heaven Knows” with decent regularity.

Their opener was Adelitas Way, a pretty standard hard rock band who’s been getting radio play here for a few years.  Frankly, I’m surprised that Adelitas Way opened for The Pretty Reckless and not the other way around, but I’m definitely happy about it.  Here are the set lists from the show, with the warning that I wasn’t there and cannot confirm accuracy:

Adelitas Way

  1. The Collapse
  2. Dog on a Leash
  3. Save the World
  4. Alive
  5. Stuck
  6. Sick
  7. Criticize

  2. Since You’re Gone
  3. Sweet Things
  4. Cold Blooded

  11. Daughter [Pearl Jam cover]
  12. Kill Me
  13. Heaven Knows
  14. Make Me Wanna Die
  15. Going to Hell

  1. Fucked Up World

Love the idea of them covering “Daughter.”  They’ve covered a number of awesome modern rock songs over the years, including Audioslave’s “Like a Stone” and The White Stripes’ “Seven Nation Army.”

Head on over to YouTube for a whole bunch of videos from the show…excellent quality, too.  Here are a few:

Reel Big Fish at Lehigh-Laf-A-Palooza! (Oh, And the Set List)

Filed under: Concert Listing, News, Review, Update — rockshowmusic @ 12:26 am

Welcome back to The Rock Show, where it’s all about the music!  Reel Big Fish played the pep rally at Lehigh University tonight in Grace Hall on campus.  The pep rally was for the upcoming football game against a certain school in Easton that I will not disgrace my blog by naming, and it featured a full live set by Reel Big Fish.  It was a killer show (I was right in the front of the pit), and I managed to get a T-shirt signed by five out of the six band members.  My roommate was much luckier and got a set list and all six signatures.  Oh, well, that’s how it goes.  I’m pretty familiar with RBF’s songs, but there were a few I didn’t know.  Therefore, I’m posting the set list based on the set list my roommate got right off the stage (so I’m pretty sure it’s 100% accurate!).  Here it is, exactly as written on the paper (with abbreviations and everything):

  1. Everything Sucks
  2. I Want Your Girlfriend
  3. Ban the Tube Top
  4. Somebody Hates Me
  5. Join the Club
  6. 241
  7. Brown Eyed Girl
  8. Good Thing/Your Guts
  9. Kids Don’t Like/in the Pit
  10. the Set Up
  11. Where Have You Been
  12. The Bad Guy
  13. Trendy *
  14. She Has a Girlfriend Now
  15. Suckers/Kiss Me Deadly
  16. Snoop Dog, Baby
  17. Sayonara Senorita
  18. S.R./FU

Encore

  1. Beer
  2. Sell Out
  3. Take On Me **

* Not on the printed set list; played by request

** Hand written on the set list

Tune in to 91.3 FM WLVR Bethlehem (www.wlvr.org) on Sunday from 3pm to 5pm for The Rock Show – featuring a triple shot of Reel Big Fish in celebration of the game and the concert!
