Catching Up With Red Sun rising

During a hellacious downpour at last year’s Welcome To Rockville we had our first chat with the founders of then up-and-coming rock band Red Sun Rising. Since that stormy afternoon, their career has been skyrocketing with back-to-back number 1 singles. We caught up with the band again this year at Rockville to see how things have changed.

Disturbed Dominates Day 1 of Rockville

EDBD 23 – It’s A Chick Thing?

This year’s 101.1 WJRR Earthday Birthday was the most women-centric rock event I can remember, and the approach helped make it one of the best festivals I’ve experienced. We were treated to five female fronted bands, a key sponsor was breast health awareness non-profit organization Rock Pink, we had a chance to honor a local survivor, we saw plenty of Mel and LT, and of course, there were painted breasts celebrated everywhere.
