I feel like it has been too long since we have heard from Highly Suspect so tonight’s cover is off their 2016 release The Boy Who Died Wolf, the tune Send Me An Angel originally from the band Real Life. From what I can gather Real Life was basically a one-hit wonder and Send Me An Angel was that hit. Highly Suspect’s version is very low key, but at this point I will take anything from the band to tide me over until their show in August at the Ogden.

Guns N’ Roses are on a European leg of their massive Not In This Lifetime tour and they had a stop in Berlin over the weekend.

The tune is well known to the band since Velvet Revolver contained many current and former members of GNR. Unfortunately the only video we have was shot with a cellphone in the crowd so the audio isn’t perfect but it’s still great to hear Axl belt out the words. Take a listen! For...read more
Middle Class Rut are back on the scene after 5 years from their last album, Pick Up Your Head.

FFDP keep the soulful bluesy feeling of the original but throw in some of their signature Death Punch sound....read more
Australian rockers Parkway Drive just dropped their latest album Reverence last week and announced a show at the Ogden in September so let’s celebrate with a rare sight, the band doing a cover tune!
