Oderus Ungerous casts off mortal coil

Monday, Mar 24, 2014

by Jeff Barringer - Staff Photographer

Dave Brockie, known to fans of legendary heavy metal act GWAR as Oderus Ungerous from the planet Scumdogia, was found dead in his home in New York yesterday, leaving fans of the band in a state of shock worldwide.

Known for their shock and awe stage shows that often brutalized effigies of political and cultural figureheads with a chainsaw and always left audiences covered in multicolored goo fired from phallic shaped cannons, Dave Brockie's band pushed the boundaries of theater, music, taste, and wet-dry vacs worldwide.

I saw GWAR 4 or 5 times, met Dave once, and was friends with him on Facebook for many years, often chatting with him privately between tours. We always said we were going to connect "next tour" for a beer, but we never seemed to get our schedules to mesh.

Rest in peace Oderus.

The world will be considerably less sticky with your passing, but substantially less interesting.

Slayer at Auditorium Shores, Austin Texas

Tuesday, Nov 12, 2013

by Jeff Barringer - Staff Photographer

Thrash metal titans Slayer made a triumphant return to Austin's Auditorium Shores on Sunday night, sneaking in one more outdoor show before the winter chill set in on the river city.

With a set that pays tribute to their fallen guitarist, the late Jeff Hanneman, the fall tour ends in Lowell Massachusetts Nov. 30th. Slayer has just one more Texas stop, Dallas on Wednesday, before they take a winter tour break. For a list of their remaining tour dates check their web site at http://www.slayer.net.

They Might Be Giants at Stubb's BarBQ

Wednesday, Oct 23, 2013

by Jeff Barringer - Staff Photographer
One of the funnest bands to see perform live, They Might Be Giants stopped in at Austin's Stubb's BarBQ to play to an enthusiastic house of fans last night, launching into a variety of crowd favorites that quickly had the audience engaged. Frontmen John Flansburgh and John Linnell know how to entertain crowds from 8 to 80 and it makes each live gig an experience.

They Might Be Giants will be touring the UK in November. For a list of tour dates check their site at http://TheyMightBeGiants.com.

Slayer's Jeff Hanneman passes at 49

Thursday, May 02, 2013



by Jeff Barringer - Staff Photographer

Jeff Hanneman, guitarist, lyricist, and one of the founding members of the legendary and influential thrash-metal band Slayer, has passed away at 49 from liver failure, according to a press release from the bands management.

Hanneman, who has not performed with the Slayer since 2011 while he recovered from necrotizing fasciitis from a spider bite, was instrumental in writing many of the bands more well known songs, and was know for his interest in military history, which caused controversy with some of the bands lyrics. When I last met Jeff, during the recording of the World Painted Blood album in Los Angeles in 2009, we spoke at length about his interests, and I gave him some history books to read on the 2010 tour.

Jeff is survived by his wife of 16 years Kathy, two brothers, Michael and Larry and sister Kathy. Funeral arrangements are pending.

Willie Nelson concert now benefit for West Volunteer Fire Department

Thursday, Apr 18, 2013



by Jeff Barringer - Staff Photographer

According to a statement posted on the Austin American Statesman web site, legendary Texas entertainer Willie Nelson has changed his scheduled concert at The Backyard April 28, just outside Austin in Bee Cave, into a fundraiser for the West Volunteer Fire Department, devastated by Wednesday's explosion.

“West is just a few miles from my hometown of Abbott,” Nelson said in a statement. “I was born and raised here and it was my backyard growing up. This is my community. These friends and neighbors have always been and are still a part of my life. My heart is praying for the community that we call home.”

Willie Nelson had previously been scheduled to perform with family members Paula Nelson and Lucas Nelson, but as a fundraiser I would expect additions to the lineup from a variety of Austin and Texas based artists, as well as friends of Willie and the Nelson family. It wouldn't be surprising to see Billy Gibbons and the rest of ZZ Top, Lyle Lovett or any number of other Texas artists end up on the schedule as Texas pulls together to help it's own.

For tickets and more info please visit http://www.willienelson.com

UPDATE: 04/19/2013 - "The State Firemen’s and Fire Marshals’ Association said Friday morning that it believes 11 firefighters died in the explosion, including four who were emergency medical service personnel."

Steel Panther - Sound Academy - Toronto

Saturday, Sep 01, 2012




Photos and review by Jess Watt - Staff Photographer club.kingsnake.com


Steel Panther - Sound Academy - Toronto - Aug 9th, 2012

"Going to a Steel Panther show is like going back to high school in the late 1980s: Big hair, tight pants, make up, glitter, and a lot of cock.
If this doesn't sound like your high school, Steel Panther gives you the chance to experience it whether it be your first time or tenth time.
The foursome, straight off Sunset Blvd know how to both rock it and give many many many laughs along the way. You can't help but laugh along with them and their songs like, " "Asian Hooker", "Fat Girl", "Eatin' Ain't Cheatin" and "Gold Digging Whore."
If you missed the glam rock era, Steel Panther is your chance to go back in time, cheesy guitar solos and everything.
Check out their weekly shows in both Las Vegas and LA"
