LEOGUN @ 12TH & PORTER

LEOGUN You’ve got to be bold to make it rock ‘n’ roll. LEOGUN singer and guitarist Tommy Smith might characterize it as “cheeky”, but it all comes down to the same thing. The genre’s history is earmarked by countless musicians who took a risk and lived through a life-changing night. Smith’s big evening was in 2009. He managed to talk his way backstage at an Eagles of Death Metal gig in his native London. While behind the proverbial “velvet rope,” he met Dominic Fairbanks-Weston of Fairbanks Endorsements LTD. Weston was completely taken by the young rocker’s audacity and talent,...

DROPKICK MURPHYS @ MARATHON MUSIC WORKS

DROPKICK MURPHYS THE POWER OF YOUR EXAMPLE IS FAR GREATER THAN WHAT YOU SAY! Dropkick Murphys formed in 1996 in Boston, MA. The band was originally just a bunch of friends looking to play music for fun. We started playing in the basement of a friend’s barbershop and our goal was to blend the musical influences we had grown up with (Punk Rock, Irish Folk, Rock, and Hardcore) into one loud, raucous, chaotic, and often out of tune mix that we could call our own. To our surprise people seemed to like it and we began to record music...

THE BROADCAST @ 12TH & PORTER

THE BROADCAST Three decades from now, a documentary filmmaker in search of his next rockumentary will come across The Broadcast and realize he’s hit gold. The story of the rock and soul outfit not only comes with its own high-octane soundtrack, it hits on all the key points: Challenges are overcome, miles are logged, performances are slain and an oft-jaded music industry is enticed. There’s dancing. There’s a love story. Over 50 years ago, Bob Dylan traveled—as many would after him—from the American heartland to New York City, singing his way to the stage at The Bitter End in...

EASTSIDE GAMBLERS @ 12TH & PORTER

EAST SIDE GAMBLERS The East Side Gamblers are a band formed out of perfect timing and all of the right elements falling into place at once. The story begins with the brothers Higbee in the fall of 2011 as their previous group “Caprice” was winding down. With a show still on the books they decided it would be the perfect opportunity to make a fresh start. The first move was to call an old friend, drummer Coby Gullen, over for a jam and a few beers just to see if things clicked. The connection was almost instant and The...

BLACKFOOT GYPSIES @ 12TH & PORTER

BLACKFOOT GYPSIES Nashville’s Blackfoot Gypsies are a rock ’n’ roll band—straight up, no modifiers necessary. With four years, four releases, and countless miles under their belt as a two-piece guitar & drums powerhouse, Zack Murphy and Matthew Paige have recently added fellow brethren Dylan Whitlow (bass) and Ollie Dogg (harmonica), bolstering their passionate, careening, undeniably American sound. Seeing the band live is like watching someone cling to a firehose at full blast or dig their heels in atop a thrashing mechanical bull… holding on for dear life, slowly guiding and reacting to forces at the brink of their control,...
