It’s Tuesday, and that means at 8pm eastern you’ll be tuning your intrawebs to www.gashouseradio.com for Gashouse Live!

We have a special guest in the 4th seat tonight, and our featured band of the week is Echo Movement, who coincidentally have a brand new album out today! So go get it, and we’ll discuss the band a little more tonight.

Plus, our Smashing Pumpkins news continues to roll on, as does our ever-so-depressing Suicide News. We’ve got a great Justice for All segment tonight involving a man suing for being fat, and on a related note our question of the week: Should food stamps be allowed to use at places like Taco Bell? Be sure to join the chatroom and let us know your opinion!

Music news from Courtney Love to Van Halen to Mighty Mighty Bosstones and we’ve got a few follow-ups from last week’s stories. Do not miss this show tonight! Everyone’s gonna be talking about it tomorrow at work and you’ll feel left out and be sad for the rest of the day. No one wants to see that.

Tonight, 8pm eastern, only on www.gashouseradio.com

Krik Fest II Recap

Written by : Categories : Gashouse Live Comments: 2 comments

Despite the threat of thunderstorms and the flooding Krik Fest II took place this past Saturday at Dean Cassmiri’s Old Colonial Inn in Hulmeville, PA and it turned out to be an incredible day of music. We couldn’t have asked for better weather, better bands, atmosphere or crowd.

HonorAmondThieves 300x225 Krik Fest II Recap

Honor Among Thieves 2nd year in a row at Krikfest.

David Beck started off the event with some acoustic music as the crowd filed in. New York’s  Honor Among Thieves followed with a slightly heavier sound that rocked and really set the bar for the rest of the day.

Citizens of Baskerville.

Next up was Citizens of Baskerville, a hip hop duo that came all the way from Santa Barbara, CA to play Kirk Fest II. With Amir on vocals and Will on guitar, Citizens brought a very unique sound to the show.

Robert Ross Revival

Robert Ross Revival followed and put on a very very entertaining, unexpected show. We weren’t sure what to expect with these guys but they delivered great rock n roll with a stage a presence that you couldn’t stop watching.

Nick from Black Sun Rising.

Black Sun Rising played their first show ever at Krik Fest this year and they definitely made a lasting impact on the crowd. A heavier sound mixed with melodic vocals really won the crowd over. This was a great start to band that you’ll be seeing all around Philadelphia very soon.

RufusJFisk1 300x225 Krik Fest II Recap

Rufus J Fisk - the man without a face.

Rufus J Fisk had a tough act to follow, but did not disappoint. They’re energetic stage presence mixed with a very tight, heavy band and the vocals of MC Analytical kept the crowd’s undivided attention. This was the first time I saw these guys live and I’ll definitely be catching them again when they are back in Philly.

RLL1 300x225 Krik Fest II Recap

Red Letter Life.

Red Letter Life delivered a high energy show as they always do with very catchy piano work, strong guitar leads and a solid rhythm section. They also played a few songs from their new upcoming release Turn On Red. RLL know how to get a crowd moving and this year’s Krik fest II performance was no exception.

SonsofKryppton1 300x225 Krik Fest II Recap

Sons of Krypton.

Suns of Krypton were the next band to take the stage. Not only did these guys coordinate the entire event, but they managed to put together a great playlist of original tunes.  Everyone in the band brings their own style to the table and yet the songs have a very strong sense of accord. The set went seamlessly from heavy to light and back again, keeping the attentive crowd entertained throughout.

leianna e1315865701967 225x300 Krik Fest II Recap

Leiana.

And finally, Leiana closed out the night with her own brand of hard rock/punk. Leiana’s latest album Lucky #3 sounds incredible and the band was able to reproduce the big sound of the album live at Krik Fest II. Leiana’s vocals cut through the heavy guitars and driving rhythm perfectly. This band has a lot of shows coming up in Philly in the next few weeks so if you missed them Saturday, get out to the next one!

So the event was a huge success, and that is all thanks to the work of a handful of people. It is not easy to organize an event of this size from months of preparation to a thousand challenges throughout the day. Ken from Suns of Krypton put in a lot of work and really deserves a lot of credit for such a successful show.

There’s so many others that also deserve some recognition including all the bands that performed, Jake and the rest of the sound team, the staff at Dean Cassmiri’s and everyone who came out to support the show. I’d also like to thank Amy and Bee Cee for helping with the live broadcast as well as Nikki for helping us to adjust the mix from a listener’s standpoint. We had a great time for the second year in a row and we’re already looking forward to next year.

Photos and videos of the event are soon to follow.
