Welcome to another week of Mosh Pit Monday. I’m definitely getting my mosh pit on for this coming weekend for the Soundwave Festival. I remember when I added the countdown in the top right hand corner of my web page it was about 90 days to go. Where has the time gone? Looking forward to seeing some of my favourite metal bands like Slipknot, Dragonforce, Godsmack, Lamb of God, Ministry and a few other bands I haven’t heard of before. I’ll be sharing a review of the two day event at next Monday’s Mosh Pit Monday.
In case you missed it, we had a bit of bad weather here over the weekend. Cyclone Marcia, in all her fury, lashed the coast of Queensland, my home State with some damaging winds and heaps and heaps of rain. We escaped the full force of the wind but got our fair share of rain here in Brisbane and my poor recording studio was flooded, again. The second time in a month. First priority is to figure out where all this rainwater is coming in and get it fixed. It puts such a delay on my recording process and just jamming. Marcia! Marcia! Marcia!
Today I’d like to feature a local Brisbane band, Red Tendrils who have been on my gig radar for a while now. Seems like every time they’re playing, I’m either on call for work or have the kids with us. My partner knows the lead singer through a girlfriend of hers and we’ve heard great things about them.
Red Tendrils are a 4-piece rock band from around Brisbane who have been together since 2011. The band comprises Tony (“T-dog”) Pickett on guitar/vocals, Dan Bradshaw on guitar, Dan Charlton on bass and Sean Gallagher on drums. Their influences are The Datsuns, The Hives and Queens of the Stoneage.
“Like the tendrils of a plant, their music is a woven tapestry of rocking groove stoner fatness!”
With their hard rock sound and original tunes, they are just the band to set you in the mood for some old fashioned, fist pumping, raw music. They’re often gigging somewhere around Brisbane and they are definitely on my list of ‘must see’ bands this year. You should check them out too. You can find out when they’re playing next by following them on Facebook, Twitter or check out their website where you can download their latest tunes. In the meantime, have a great week in music and if you see us at Soundwave come up and say gidday! ,,,/ ,,,/
