    By Alexis Simpson We were not previously familiar with Pepper…Last week Pepper played before Noize favorite, The Dirty Heads, and we were impressed by Pepper’s enthusiasm for the Detroit crowd, the band’s friendly vibes, and by their sound. What a great new find for those who like the raggae/rock genre! Members Kaleo Wasman – Guitar/VocalsBret Bollinger – Bass/ […]

    CARNIVORES TOUR: Linkin Park, 30 Seconds to Mars, AFI @ DTE Energy Music Theatre 8-30-14 (Review, Photos)

    By Alexis Simpson

    The Carnivores Tour took over DTE Energy Music Theatre last weekend with an incredibly strong lineup. AFI opened despite having the charisma and song catalog to be a stellar headliner in any venue. Singer Davey Hunter showcased his stamina as he performed gravity-defying rock leaps unlike any we have seen before.

    SETLIST
    The Leaving Song Pt. II
    Girl’s Not Grey
    I Hope You Suffer
    Medicate
    Love Like Winter
    17 Crimes
    The Days of the Phoenix
    Silver and Cold
    Miss Murder

    Jared Leto of 30 Seconds to Mars looked like Hollywood Jesus with his long hair, big coat, celebrity status and big anthems. Near the end of the set, confetti was shot throughout DTE and 4 ft bright balloons bounced from the front of the stage all the way up into the hill. Leto brought Hollywood to Detroit, and knows how to liven things up. Despite being a muse of Terry Richardson, Leto is a bit camera shy, and makes concert photogs shoot from the soundstage which makes it difficult to document his grandiosity. It’s easier to get a sense of him better when closer, so maybe next time…We have to see you to feel you, as I always say!

    SETLIST
    Carmina Burana: O Fortuna
    (Carl Orff song)
    Up in the Air
    (Ext. Bridge; Ext. Outro)
    Search and Destroy
    (Ext. Intro; Ext. Outro)

    (Chorus)

    Encore:
    Cowboys from Hell
    (Pantera cover) (Instrumental Jam; fans onstage)
    Closer to the Edge
    (Ext. Intro; Ext. Outro; fans onstage)

    Lastly, the guys of Linkin Parks are pros. Singer Chester is a lean mean screaming madman who is at the top of his game and genre. He sounds amazing and his energy is unrelentless. Quirky and charming Mike Shinoda, Linkin’s Park “rapper” effortlessly blends into the musical mix of LP. His was particularly on point in Michigan this weekend because his words were smoooth and he looked so damn happy. Between songs, 1-3 minute mixes of electronic music were performed between songs, which was a clever addition to the show. “Perfect Performance” are the two words to accurately describe their set. Not only is their music flawless-these guys are class acts. Last year when we got the chance to do a group interview with Linkin Park, the guys seemed personable and sharp. It was great again to see glimpses of Chester’s good attitude as he gleefully pointed out that there was a family that came all the way from Ecuador to the Detroit performance. Bennington also jumped into the audience for a good period of time, and then got a kick out of young kid who belted out Chester’s lyrics like a pro. Linkin Park is a highly celebrated band and deservedly earning legendary rock band status.

    Album Review: Artificial Agent-Brain Grenade (Score=100% )

    SONY DSCBy Alexis Simpson

    We first saw this band perform when opening for Steel Panther. Since then, we’ve spotted Derek enjoying rock shows at venues such as Small’s and Royal Oak Music Theatre. Also, you may have spotted his brother on Instagram with a deluge of photos of his new bride-Congrats! They released their new CD a few months ago, so we wanted to see what it was all about and relay our first impression of the album.

    REVIEW

    1. Master Blaster: Catchy and simple with great guitar work! :)

    2. Brain Grenade: Fuzzy sounding, slower tempo song about love gone bad. Strong instrumental intro and ending! :)

    3. Out of Time: Sung with conviction. We prefer the faster tempo songs such as this one. So far we are hearing solid classic Detroit-sounding rock songs that make drinking more fun. :)

    4. Another Punch in the Face: This song is on the right track…It’s about a guy who has a bad day and feels like he got punched in the face again. We like this song, but it might create more mosh pits if they changed the lyrics to “I Want to Punch you in the Face.” This way the character in the song would sound more victorious rather than beat down. Maybe on the next album Artificial Agent will write such a song:) *hinthint* :)

    5. Psychomotor Agitation: What is this psychomotor agitation they speak of? We are not sure, but it’s fun to say. :)

    6. Some Things Never Die: This sounds like a good Halloween song to play outside for the tricker treaters with all the talk about dying, creeping and bleeding. :)

    7. Not For the Innocent: Lock up your daughters! We approve when Artificial Agent aims for the dark side and gets a little aggressive such as in the last two songs! :)

    Overall, there isn’t anything NOT to like on this album. Great job, maybe next time write that “Punch in the Face” song and add a song about aliens. We still are a big fan of your robot song on “The Valley of the Ashes”!!!

    Score=7/7 100%
