Song of the Week: “Diabolic Crush”

I was listening to Aesthetic Perfection on YouTube and this showed up in the “related videos” on the right. I need some new bands to listen to, so I clicked on it…and I fell in love. I can’t even explain exactly why; I just adore this song and this band!

Birthday Blog!

I am going to take a break from reviews, videos, etc., and do a post about my birthday. The topic will still be music, however, considering that the way I celebrated was back-to-back Almost Kings/Super bob shows.

My actual birthday is August 10th. As you know, that was Sunday. There is nothing to do on a Sunday. Therefore, we decided to celebrate early. August 7th, we saw Almost Kings and Super bob in Huntsville. August 8th, we saw the dynamic pairing in Birmingham.

Almost Kings killed it, as always. I don’t think I could ever be disappointed by one of their performances. There is never a dull moment. And, you know, this happened.

Adding to the excitement was the fact that these were my first two Super bob shows. I had not even heard them before this, except one song. I can’t think of anything to say about them other than OH, MY GOD! They were so great! Very high energy and more rock-oriented than Almost Kings, it didn’t take them very long to pump up the crowds. In Birmingham, I stood on one of Almost Kings’ equipment cases to see better and just let it go! I will undoubtedly be posting another blog about Super bob soon. They definitely fall into the category of “Bands You Should Know.”

I’m going to end this blog with a few pictures. Enjoy!

Song of the Week: “Five Foot Hurricane”

My song of the week is again from Almost Kings and naturally, the video I chose is the one from this past week when I was celebrating my birthday and vocalist Bryan Bozeman pulled me onstage. The band and my friends made my weekend one to remember!
