Re: “Rowco (CD release show), Devil to Pay, Goliathon, Will Woodrow Project

Rowco's CD Release show was an exciting event that solidified how a great local, original hard rock show is not just a thing of the past. Emerson Theatre used to be in recent years the only place you could go to see a good original hard rock or metal show for cheap and walk away with a compact disc from a band promoting an album release show. That's were local headliners Rowco all got their start in other projects and have graduated with honors to put together a band that has Rock by the horns.
After a three month plus, preparation for past Saturday's event at The Rock House on Indy's South side, the show began promptly at 8pm with local band Black Cat Rebellion who was a last minute addition to the show lineup, after the cancellation of original opening act The Will Woodrow Project. Black Cat Rebellion, who is recently back to booking more local shows to support their album played a good 35 minute set, to get the already busy Rock House ready to rock out with cock out the rest of the night. Electro-Shock co-founder DJ Omni-FI spun a wide variety of the sickest Dubstep and Electro-Rap for the in between sets during change over for each of the events line-up bands. The next band to take the stage was Goliathon. They had just come off of winning round two at Birdy's Battle of The Bands and were absolutely on point with their set. Goliathon got most of a sitting room to their feet by the time they were midway into their set, with my personal self proclaimed theme song "Pan Handel", one of Goliathon's rocking original tracks. Goliathon did not disappoint. For a free show, it's hard to get a local touring band to agree to play on your event, especially when that said band makes a good amount of money for doing so. This special treat performance was delivered by local hard rockers Devil To Pay. DTP played a great set, despite mild complaints from frontman Steve Janiak, about having some lower back trouble. He was a trooper and brought forth a stellar performance with Devil To Pay. I was happy to catch that set. As the night continued on and the 11pm headlining hour approached, The Rock House had reached about 200 plus people and the whole bar was ready for Rowco. Rowco had energy as soon as they started playing, their whole album in order front to back. They ended their set with their song "Goldrush" and the entire bar was rocking out hard. After their set both lead vocalist/ guitarist Mark Southerland and bassist Casey McDermount gave "Thank You" speeches that were truly appreciative. The band's drummer Dave Bailey told me, that he was impressed with the turnout of the event's evening and was pleased to have executed a great rock show evening. The Rock House appeared pleased as well, while All-Star bartender Matt Jackson expressed that he stayed busy all night and was happy with the turnout of the event as well.
2 O'clock Twilight played out the rest of the evening with an after set, that was good if they would have been an instrumental act. The band's lead singer, Daniel Jaffke, expressed his frustration with an on stage comment, "It's hard to play to an audience who isn't paying attention to us." Sorry, Daniel, but that is not how you win over an audience's attention. Nevertheless, the Invent Fusion Entertainment promoted event was a great success and was an absolute great time. If you missed Rowco last Saturday @ The Rock House, then you will have another chance to pick up their album at Local's Only, next Friday when they will be playing alongside Phoenix On The Fault Line.

Re: “High Tide Trio (CD release show), Suede Brothers , Goliathon, Doc Brown, Midwest State of Mind, Jin-XS

It was a local star studded evening for the Birdy's stage on Saturday, August 21st. Local band High Tide Trio (HT3) delivered an amazing performance for their CD Release Event of their new album "Next Chapter". This was the first Ticketmaster event for local music promotion label Invent Fusion Entertainment. IFE certainly did a great job securing a good size audience for this event. The show kicked off with local band Doc Brown (a.k.a. Sady) with a solid rock set that gives the audience a modern day Led Zeppelin meets Stone Temple Pilots feel. Lead singer Deric Mount's vocals are hauntingly channeling Robert Plant with every note of their song "Looking At You", along side lead guitarist, Sean Oatis' face melting guitar riffs and spine chilling solos. Doc Brown got the place ready for a good Rock show. Then HT3 took the stage with a surprise lead guitarist showcasing of Billy Adams (No One Zero / Guitarists) who brought an amazing stage presence to the HT3 set nailing every solo and riffing every note with splendor. HT3 frontman Greg Fratzke was on point with every song the band performed and gave a great narration for almost every song's title. HT3 brought a stellar stage performance and a brilliant CD that they graciously handed to everyone who entered the event, as a way of saying thanks to their supporters. The evening's premier spot showcase was The Suede Bros. from (Cleveland, OH). This power trio brought a loud, "rock your face" mentality with their set. The Suede Bros. performed songs from their new self titled album such as "The Night", a Clutch style song that brought an energy unmatched by any other of the bands that performed this event. After a long set delay due to stage set up for Goliathon, Electro-Shock founder Nate Cancilla (Jin-XS) spun amazing Electro-House and kept the crowd dancing with each of his great mashup selections while Goliathon was preparing to take the stage. Once they were ready to go, the dance floor grew quickly to see the event's co-headliner Goliathon. Goliathon had an intense set and amazing display of crowd appreciation. The final act for the event was Midwest State of Mind. MWSM had a few surprises up their sleeve with a new guitarist that replaced ex axeman Will Hickman. MWSM's new guitarist, who's name I forgot to catch, brought a fresh style and flavor to the already original MWSM sound. MWSM frontman Andrew Thompson had an incredible stage persona and got the crowd's attention by announcing before performing the band's song "2012". Thompson replied after asking the question. "Has anyone heard about this apocalyptic scenario known as 2012?" "Well, I don't know about you but I'm going to rock my ass off until the end of days." This brought the place to an uproar of applause and MWSM closed their set with their song 2012. An amazing show, with some of Indy's quality bands gave Birdy's a great Saturday night. Bartender and Birdy's booking agent, Jeff Sample, expressed that he was pleased with the turnout of the event and pleased with both ticket sales and cover charges at the door and would like to continue working with IFE for future events. I managed to hear nothing but great response and appreciation from the bands, the bar staff and the audience members of the event. Invent Fusion Entertainment is making a good name for the Indianapolis music scene by paving the way for eclectic music performances and bringing together a local scene community. IFE's next event will be on October 16th at The Rock House Cafe' on Indy's South side for local band Rowco's new Hit Dept. album release show.

Re: “Moe & Johnny's Bar and Grill

Moe and Johnny's Bar & Grille is one of my favorite hangouts to grab a drink or eat dinner in Indy.

MJ's, referred to by most Indy natives, has a wide variety of big screen televisions, an attached coffee shop and outdoor patio seating.

With great food and a great beer selection on tap, MJ's could easily become anyone's favorite weeknight afterwork hangout.

Moe & Johnny's is located on 5380 N. College Ave. Indianapolis, IN 46220 near Broad Ripple.
