Three Shades Of Heavy Rocking RIBCO Sunday Night

Three Shades Of Heavy Rocking RIBCO Sunday Night

If you have any energy left after the Halloween weekend, head over to the Rock Island Brewing Company for an early show on Sunday night. Wake Brewing and LoPiez Pizza are sponsoring the show, which will paint the brick walls of RIBCO with three distinct shades of heavy. Ripple Music’s Horseburner is swinging thru RIBCO on a monthlong American tour. Their Appalachian-rockslide rumble is less groove-based than fellow West-by-god natives Karma to Burn. It’s more like a mineshaft collapsing in slow motion while the miners sing hymns in the dark. Their new record finds the band embracing... Read More

Murnau, Giallows Return To The Stage At Rozz Tox

On Saturday, October 11, Rozz-Tox will be the site of one band’s re-emergence and another’s reinvention, as Giallows and Murnau share the bill.

Their resurrection began in earnest in mid-August with a show at a tiny pizza joint in their equally tiny hometown of Morrison, IL, about an hour’s drive up I-88 from the Quad Cities; now they are kicking off string of local dates in Rock Island as they prepare to record a new release. Doors open at 8, show starts at 9, cover is $5-10. They... Read More
