21 Things We Loved About Welcome To Rockville 2018

This Year’s Festival Was Packed With Great Amenities

Rarasfarm had two folks covering this year’s Welcome To Rockville.  We are longtime veterans of the Jacksonville-based rock festival, and this year was the best incarnation ever.

Welcome To Rockville Storms Into Jax

Smashing Day 1 at Welcome To Rockville

It’s the premiere hard rock event in the country, and yesterday, Welcome To Rockville thundered into Jacksonville for the first of two powerful days packed with explosive rock.

Unfortunately for the local rock fans, they also had to endure a thunderous show from Mother Nature, but in the end the story was still all about the rock ‘n roll.

The key word for the 2015 version of Welcome To Rockville was “More.”  More stages, more bands, more food trucks, more vendors, more space (a lot more space), more activities and more fans, and it all came together nicely.

For this year’s event, we were treated to four stages of music spread across the greatly expanded footprint.  The set-up this year was perfect for the sound, with very little bleed over from one stage to the others. The Reverbnation and Jagermeister Stages were side by side and located in the shadows of Everbank Field, an entirely new area for 2015.  In the slightly expanded original festival area, the Jack Daniels and Monster Energy Stages faced each other, but probably had an additional 100 feet or so of space, which came in handy for the headliners, Korn.

The first band we caught was Red Sun Rising, a quintet out of Akron, Ohio.  they delivered an energetic entertaining set that proved to be one of the highlights of the day for us.  They debuted “The Other Side,” the first single from their new album which will be released on June 9th. It’s a perfect fit for active rock radio stations that should be blasting through our speakers all summer.  We chatted with the talented band after their set and will have the full interview on this site in the next few days.

We caught powerful sets from Sangre, Stars in Heaven and Sons Of Texas before the first alarm went off.  Due to severe weather in the area, the crowd was asked to disperse back to their cars for about two hours while the storms cleared through the area.  The organizers handled it well, and with calm, and did a nice thing when they opened the VIP areas under the overpass to all fans. It was a nice touch and the right thing to do.

Unfortunately, we missed a few bands due to the rain, including Fozzy, Hollywood Undead and Scott Weiland and The Walkabouts. But, we did get back underway in time to catch the full set from legendary progressive metal rockers Queensryche. With Todd La Torre manning the vocals in place of Geoff Tate, they sounded pristine and offered a great sampling of tracks from their fantastic thirty year career.

From there, we trekked across the field in time to hear the crowd chanting for Testament, a band I had never seen previously.  And, they delivered a tremendous, fiery 30 minute set.  All of the band members flew around the stage, constantly connecting with the crowd, defying their age as thirty year veterans of the heavy metal scene. Front man Chuck Billy stalked the stage constantly playing air guitar on his mic stand. It was a great surprise and the highlight of the day for me.

We then sat through another hour storm delay, but were excited to see that the festival was able to squeeze in a late performance from Halestorm who sounded great and dished out a fun and engaging set.  We also saw Mike Muir and Suicidal Tendencies who dished out an equal serving of thrash metal and solid motivational life advice.

Marilyn Manson closed down the Jack Daniels Stage with an entertaining freak show.  His mobscene sounded great, but the show seemed a little sloppy.  I did, however enjoy his stories, particularly of the time he was arrested in Florida. From there, it was across the grounds to the fevered Monster Energy Stage, where Korn thundered through a set that had the remaining crowd headed to the streets extremely pleased with their fill of rock music.

It was a powerful ending to a turbulent day, but a day that ultimately was all about the rock ‘n roll, and a great way to kick off Rockville.

Recap of Big Orlando Bands

Fall Out Boy and Weezer Headline Big Orlando Fest

As the temperatures dipped, the steady stream of alcohol began to take its toll on more than a handful of concert-goers and the drizzle started up, the action on the Big Orlando stages began to heat up.

Make sure you Like RARAsFarm’s Facebook Page and Follow us on Twitter for rock music coverage.

 

(For my afternoon session reviews click here: Sleeper Agent, Bear Hands, Big Data, Know Hamilton, Crazy Carls, The Hip Abduction, Kasson, A Hero’s Fate)

I covered the first eight Big Orlando Festival bands that I saw in my summary published yesterday (you can see it here), and today, I focus on the last six acts, which included three killer performances.  Here they are in the order I saw them.

  • Dirty Heads – Saw these Huntington Beach natives at last year’s Big Ticket in Jacksonville, and loved their unique blend of ska and hip hop. The band revolves around front men Jared (Dirty J) Watson  and Dustin (Duddy B) Bushnell. In an interview before the show, Watson summed it up perfectly, “Nothing compares to live music. There’s something magical in the energy of a live show that I just love so much,” and it  showed, as the band seemed to be having a blast from the first moments of “Franco Eyed” to the final notes of “My Sweet Summer,” and the crowd had just as much fun. Check out our interview with Watson here.
  • J. Roddy Walston and The Business – Long hair and rugged-looking, they took the stage looking like a classic Southern Rock quartet spit out of the seventies.  As it turned out, they were not exactly Southern rockers, but definitely boasted a cool, classic rock vibe. Walston deftly bounced between guitar and piano and ripped off impressive throaty vocals.  Their set seemed to wrap up a bit more quickly than planned, but their closing offering, “Heavy Bells,” was one of the best songs we heard throughout the day.
  • Young The Giant – Coming into the show, I suspected that I wouldn’t be crazy about this set, despite the fact that I really enjoy the band’s first two albums. Their music sounded good, the band was tight, and lead singer Sameer Gadhia’s voice was excellent, but their performance just didn’t impress me.  It was a nice backdrop for chilling in the food tents, but not the kind of moving performance I hope for in a festival headliner.
  • New Politics – Wow! One hell of an entertaining set.  This Copenhagen trio stole the show with an extremely energetic, unpredictable set. Their set boasted half a dozen great songs, which had the crowd bouncing and singing along throughout.  Drummer Louis Vecchio spent more time on his feet than on his stool, guitarist Soren Hansen flew around the stage with reckless abandon, and lead singer David Boyd was an acrobatic madman, back-flipping, break dancing, crowd surfing and doing headstands. He was an athletic freak, but also a fantastic singer and entertainer, and the entire crowd loved him and his mates.  There were many highlights, but “Everywhere I Go,” “Yeah, Yeah, Yeah” and “Harlem” ignited the crowd. My favorite was the Beastie Boys cover of “Sabotage.” Killer stuff!

  • Weezer – Last time I saw this band, they were supporting their second album 18 years ago, and honestly, they did not impress me at the time.  Fortunately, their live act is aging nicely.  From the moment Rivers Cuomo grabbed his guitar and ripped into “Hash Pipe,” he seemed to be having a great time.  Their set featured a killer mix of old and new and left the crowd thoroughly satisfied.  Early in the set, Cuomo invited Sleeper Agent’s Alex Kandel to join him for a nice version of the new single “Go Away.” Deeper into the set, I loved the versions of “Say It Ain’t So” and “Pork and Beans,” but the highlight was a fantastic sing along version of “Undone.”  Surprisingly, a good number of fans left after they closed with their encore “Buddy Holly,” apparently more intent on beating the rain and traffic than catching Fall Out Boy.
  • Fall Out Boy – the thousand or so fans who split early missed a blistering set. From the minute they hit the stage, the crowd was totally engaged. I think the set started off good, but they kicked it into a frenzy with a tremendous four song stretch, that went like this: “Sugar, We’re Goin Down,” “Centuries,” “Immortals” and “Dance, Dance.” It was the highlight of a fantastic set. Pete Wentz gets a ton of attention and soaks up the spotlight, but he was literally the least important performer on the stage.  Andy Hurley’s hard driving drums powered the band and Joe Trohman’s guitars punctuated most of the selections, but lead singer Patrick Stump absolutely blew me away with his vocals and is clearly the heart of this band, and on this night was the most impressive performer to grace the main stage.

So, there you have it – I caught 14 very talented alt-rock bands in one incredible day in the fields of Orlando, spent the day with thousands of happy, satisfied fellow rockers and can’t wait to see what next year holds.

Big Orlando Line-Up Review and a few Samples

Big Orlando Line-Up and Videos

Well there’s been some exciting change since I last wrote about the Big Orlando, Central Florida’s biggest rock music event in years.  The line-up was filled out, and the newly announced bands are pretty damn impressive.

Make sure you Like our Facebook at the top of our site for more rock music coverage.

Make sure you check out some videos of our featured bands below the article.

We already knew about Alternative rock legends Weezer and one of the hottest bands around, Fall Out Boy, riding the huge success of their latest single “Centuries.”  In addition, we were excited to see our favorite edgy ska band, Dirty Heads, Alt-Nation favorite Young The Giant and two very hot alternative bands, Big Data and J. Roddy Walston and The Business.

Since that first review, things have been kicked up a notch.  The big news for me was the addition of Sleeper Agent.  The Kentucky-based band has one of the most unique sounds on rock radio today, and they are famous for their entertaining shows.  They are a can’t miss band.  Another band in the same vein with a great live reputation is another newly added act, New Politics.

Know Hamilton, of “We Can Work It Out” fame is another intriguing artist.  An interesting surprise for me was the addition of The Crazy Carls. We’ve wandered into The Flagler Tavern in New Smyrna Beach twice in the past year and both times, found these talented guys gracing the stage. They are uber-talented and charismatic as hell, and local guys to top it off.  Make sure you check them out.

The final four announced bands are all talented as well: Bear Hands, Twin Atlantic, The Hip Abduction and A Heroes Fate.  All told – 14 excellent alternative rock bands in one fantastic day in Central Florida – December 7th and Central Florida Fairgrounds.

Tickets are available here: The Big Orlando

If you cannot make the 12/7 show, most of these same bands are playing the Big Ticket in Jacksonville on 12/5. More info here: The Big Ticket.

To whet your appetite, here are some live looks at the 5 bands we are most looking forward to. Like our Facebook page as we will be adding video for every performing band this weekend as we countdown to The Big Orlando.

The Big Orlando – Huge Alt-Rock Festival Heads to Orlando

The Big Orlando Alt-Rock Festival

After a few years of watching the season’s best alt-rock festivals hit Jacksonville and Tampa, we finally get to see this killer line-up make a stop at Orlando. This is something we hoped for when we heard that X107.3 was coming to Orlando, and couldn’t be happier to see this come to fruition (See our prediction here).

Make sure you Follow our Twitter  below, and Like our Facebook to the right for updates on this event and all Central Florida rock concerts

December 7th will be the date which will live in infamy for Orlando rockers.  The headliners are a great cross-section of artists spanning the alternative rock scene over the past twenty years.  We will get to see two RARA’s Farm favorites, Weezer and Dirty Heads, as well as other stalwarts who we have not caught live yet: Fall Out Boy, Young The Giant,  J Roddy, Big Data, Bear Hands, Twin Atlantic, Islander, and more.  J. Roddy, Bear Hands and Big Data are three acts we are anxious to see.

The venue for the first annual edition of The Big Orlando festival is the Central Florida Fairgrounds. I absolutely love the Metropolitan Park venue for the Big Ticket in Jacksonville and am curious to see how the The Big Orlando stacks up.  And, how long before local fans shorten this to the Big “O”?

“After four years of success with X102.9 in Jacksonville and The Big Ticket, I am very excited to launch this new festival with Cox Media’s new alternative station X107.3 and AEG Live. We look forward to bringing an incredible alternative festival to Orlando,” says The Big Orlando producer Danny Wimmer of Danny Wimmer Presents.

For those of you interested, the Jacksonville festival, The Big Ticket, which is one of the best run festivals we’ve experienced in the past, is being held on Friday December 5th.  Very similar line-up, but substitute Alt-J, Chevelle and New Politics for Young The Giant, Twin Atlantic and Islander.  Sounds like a nice long weekend, eh?

Welcome To Rockville Band Recaps

Welcome To Rockville Crowd Surfing
Welcome To Rockville Crowd Surfing

(Our band photos from the festival are provided after each band’s recap)

Before I get into my capsule band reviews, let me remind you of a few things. There were two bands playing at a time, virtually all the time, so by default, I missed half the artists. I also was backstage interviewing from time-to-time, so I  missed a few other bands. Basically, if I missed your favorite act, it wasn’t for lack of trying.

If you are interested, here’s my overall Festival Recap: Welcome To Rockville, and HappyJack’s in-depth review of Hellyeah: Ex-Pantera Members Rock Jacksonville.

These bands are listed in the order that I saw them:

Saturday

  • Rev Theory – The crowd and I were really into “Hell Yeah,” but truthfully, the rest of the set was kind of mediocre.
  • Middle Class Rut – Two talented musicians, but still, just two guys! Hard to believe with the sound they pumped out but they filled the air with powerful, hard driving alt-rock, and drummer Sean Stockham was one of the highlights of the day. Middle Class Rut Photos

  • Monster Truck – was not familiar with this soulful foursome at all. I assumed they were a big Texas rock band based on their guitar driven southern sound. I was wrong, these guys hail from Hamilton Ontario, but they’ve got a sound big enough for Texas. Monster Truck Photos
  • Adelitas Way – Lead singer Rick DeJesus had tremendous rapport with the crowd and quickly had them at a fever pitch. At one time, he directed the fans to keep crowd surfing stageside where he jumped down to greet them. He joked that the Security crew wasn’t going to be happy. Yeah, no shit. He nailed that one, as a tidal wave of fans surfed to the stage front. He and his mates sounded great and put on a killer show, but he was a bit of an ass for putting the fans and Security crew at risk when the surfing escalated out of control. Adelitas Way Photos
  • Evergreen Terrace – They killed it. I don’t love their music, but I was about the only one in the crowd who didn’t. Local boys definitely on the brink of bigger things. Front man Andrew Carey sang the closer from amidst the crowd.  Cool stuff. Evergreen Terrace Photos
  • Chiodos – These midwest rockers offered up engaging alt-rock with a gritty hard edge. The band has reunited and sounded sharp. They offered one of our favorite lines of the festival: “You’re all hot and sweaty, and not even with your own sweat; but that’s rock n roll.” Indeed it is. Chiodos Photos
  • Smile Empty Soul – Hard to believe these guys have already been around for 15 years.  Their grunge infused rock sounded great in a set nicely book-ended by their early hit “Bottom Of The Bottle” and their strong new release “Chemicals.” We caught up with drummer Jake Kilmer afterwards and will be sharing that interview shortly on this website. (So Follow / Like for alerts) Smile Empty Soul Photos
  • Alter Bridge – As good as the first group of bands were, they just kicked the talent up a notch. Two uber-talented guitarists, Myles Kennedy and Mark Tremonti absolutely lit the stage up; and Kennedy also offered up what might have been the best vocals of the day. Their thirty minute set was damn near perfect. I liked hearing the band express their appreciation for the active, engaged crowd, despite the fact that they took the stage at the sweltering worst time of the day. Alter Bridge Photos

  • Volbeat – Love their music, but had never seen these Danish rockers perform live.  They’re making some of the most intriguing hard rock gracing the airwaves these days and it translated great on the big stage, as they were my Top Artist of Welcome To Rockville. Front man Michael Poulsen’s voice was distinctive and powerful and he humorously interacted with the crowd throughout the set.  The entire band sounded fantastic, and dual lead guitars from Poulsen and Rob Caggiano stole the show. They also offered a campy Johnny Cash cover that had the crowd singing along. Volbeat Photos
  • Cult – The first time I saw Cult, they opened for Billy Idol in the mid-eighties. I love their music and their album Love is one of my personal Top 10 ever.  But, quite frankly, they still are weak live. I just get the feeling there’s someplace (anyplace) that Ian Astbury would rather be, and even Billy Duffy and his band mates could care less.
  • We Came As Romans – I heard they were a talented band with a unique approach to their rock music, but was surprised by how good this band sounded. Their mix of hardcore metal and sweet pop worked perfectly. The crowd loved them and these guys are destined to continue their ascent up the rock music charts.  The vocal trade-offs between Kyle Pavone and David Stephens was one of the highlights from the entire Festival.  I need to catch this band performing a full set soon. We Came As Romans Photos
  • Avenged Sevenfold closed night one with a big arena set, plenty of effects and pyro, and they were smoking. Why the heck they closed the show at the smaller of the two stages, I will never understand. Unfortunately I watched from somewhere just north of St. Augustine but there’s no denying they nailed their set and closed night one mightily.

Sunday

  • Within Reason – These guys kicked off Day 2 of Welcome To Rockville, after doing the same thing the night before in Ft. Myers. The quartet from Alabama are doing there own thing on this tour and with their new album and it seems to be working great as their tight set was packed with excellent active rock ‘n roll. A great way to start the day! (We’ll have a full band interview in the next few weeks so make sure you Follow for updates). Within Reason Photos
  • The Pretty Reckless – Well, Taylor Momsen was “Pretty” but their music was just plain bland.  I was bored.
  • Sick Puppies – This talented trio brought it from Down Under to the Monster Energy Fire Museum stage and put on a nice Alt-Rock set. Shimon Moore sounded great and had the crowd’s apt attention and as they raced through an engaging set.  Female bass player Emma Anzai was one of the few females gracing a stage this weekend and without a doubt, the most memorable, as she delivered a great performance bouncing all over the stage. Sick Puppies Photos

  • Nothing More – For the second straight festival, Nothing More, a talented quartet out of San Antonio stole the show. They play gritty addictive hard rock that had the crowd engaged throughout. Still, as good as the music is, it is blown away by their stage show. Every band member is a consummate performer, and their theatrics on the stage were unparalleled all weekend. A spinning elevated bass, four drum kits and a whole lot more. Trust us these guys put on one hell of a show and are a can’t miss act. Nothing More Photos
  • Black Label Society – Another band that just didn’t really do it for me.  They had a big passionate crowd, and the guitar work from Zakk Wylde and crew was solid, but nothing really stood out about their set, so I left early to see…
  • Lacuna Coil – caught the end of their set, and quickly wished I had seen the whole thing. Goth metal with underlying catchy melodies.   Christina Scabbia and Andrea Ferro nicely traded off girl-boy lead vocals and sounded strong. Lacuna Coil Photos
Lacuna Coil at Welcome To Rockville

  • Theory Of A Deadman were the first band we saw at the featured Metropolitan Park stage, and they commanded the crowd’s attention, with lead singer Tyler Connolly by far the most entertaining front man of the event. He played a fun brief “Sweet Home Florida” and before “Bitch Came Back,” introduced it as a song for the ladies. The band absolutely killed it. Theory Of A Deadman Photos
  • Seether sounded good, but quite frankly did not live up to my expectations – a decent set, but not the “Can’t Miss” band I expected. Their closing song, “Remedy” did not suck, however 🙂
  • Staind – Aaron Lewis was at the opposite end of the spectrum, his voice was fantastic and Staind sounded damn near perfect. They had the singalong set of the night, too. “Now,” “Outside,” “Something To Remind You,” and “It’s Been Awhile” had the crowd singing in unison back to back… Staind Photos
Rob Zombie at Welcome To Rockville
Rob Zombie at Welcome To Rockville
  • Rob Zombie – Unfortunately, we knew we were going to miss Korn, so this was our last act of the weekend. Thankfully Zombie and his band killed it.  The stage was a sight to behold, covered in muted eerie images, and Zombie and the band fit in perfectly.  They opened with a rousing version of “American Band” and kept the energy going for a fun and powerful set.  Zombie was a theatrical front man who put on a killer show. Rob Zombie Photos

All told, it was two days of obscenely sweaty, loud and aggressive rock ‘n roll, and one hell of a good time.

We have hundreds of photos coming in the next 24 hours, which we will share via Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

If you were there, who were your favorite acts?  We’d love to hear your thoughts.

Jacksonville is About to Become Rockville

Welcome To Rockville, Florida!

Florida rock fans are in for a tremendous rock ‘n roll experience this April, when The Welcome To Rockville Festival comes storming through the city previously known as Jacksonville.

The festival boasts one of the best hard rock line-ups in the country (see the bands below) with an all-star line-up of diverse hard-rocking acts coming to Metropolita Park on April 26th and 27th.  Avenged Sevenfold and Korn are the featured headliners on their respective evenings, but they have plenty of impressive company throughout the two days.

The Saturday line-up features two veteran hard rock acts near and dear to our heart, Motorhead and The Cult, as well as two acts featured in our 2013 Albums of the Year edition, Avenged Sevenfold and our featured act of Day 1, Volbeat.  Aside from those four powerhouse acts, we highly recommend checking out Sacramento rockers Middle Class Rut, a dynamic dup who always put on a great show.

Day 2, Sunday the 27th offers another killer day of rock, with an even more impressive line-up.  Korn, Staind, Rob Zombie, Theory of A Deadman and our featured act of Day 2, Five Finger Death Punch are the highlights, but there’s plenty more.  Seether is a great live act, and RARA’s Farm favorite Sick Puppies are another act to catch.

Of the thirty plus bands invading Jacksonville for this huge event, our “Can’t Miss Artist” of the festival is Nothing More.  This quartet from Texas are an extremely promising band and a blast to watch. Their explosive rock is creative and distinctive and their stage show is absolutely fantastic.

Check out the full line-up here: Welcome To Rockville Artists
