The Pretty Reckless Concert Review

Pretty Reckless Concert Review at HOB Orlando

The hottest band in rock ‘n roll came to Orlando over the weekend and delivered a fantastic show.

The venue was the House of Blues, in the heart of the recently rebranded Disney Springs. I arrived as the sun went down and though the line of The Pretty Reckless fans wrapped around the building, I was pleasantly surprised at how quickly myself and the other concertgoers made it inside. I have to give credit to the HOB staff for being super-efficient and always friendly.

Pretty Reckless Album Review – Who You Selling For

Pretty Reckless Album ReviewTaylor Momsen has the blues – and I don’t mean she’s sad, or melancholy, either, I mean she’s got rhythm, she’s got soul, hell she even has a little funk; but above all Taylor Momsen has the blues. This hard rock heroine and her band, The Pretty Reckless, have just released an album, Who You Selling For, that is the embodiment of all of those conditions she has.

Need a Reason to go to Rockville? How About Six?

Six Bands Not To Miss at Welcome To Rockville

Still need a reason to go to the Rockville festival in Jacksonville this year? I’m sure you can come up with plenty of reasons not to, but I’m going to give you six reasons why you should.

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

Reason #6: Butcher Babies. These Los Angeles-based rockers’ high energy set will include new some new songs they just finished recording at the beginning of this month for their second album, as well as those that put them on tours opening for the likes of Marilyn Manson, as part of the lineup of Mayhem Fest, and currently touring with In This Moment.

Reason #5: Halestorm. Who wouldn’t want to see Lizzy Hale? She and her troupe of talented musicians are currently on a massive tour, with dates all across America until this summer, when they will hop the pond for some shows in Europe in support of their latest release, Into the Wild Life, which will be available April 14th.

Reason #4: Breaking Benjamin. After dealing with some health and legal issues, frontman Benjamin Burnley has got his alternative act back on the road, and has put some time into the studio for a June album release. You will get to hear some of the new material, in addition to modern classics like “I Will Not Bow”, “The Diary of Jane”, and other crowd favorites.

Reason #3: Marilyn Manson. Twenty years after shaking up the music world, and inciting the fury of countless evangelists with Portrait of an American Family, Manson is touring promoting his latest masterpiece, The Pale Emperor. You won’t want to miss this shock rockers’ set filled with props, stunning visual effects, and live versions of the music you have loved for years.

Reason #2: The Pretty Reckless. TPR is touring with Halestorm, a perfect pairing of musical styles and female vocal performances that will captivate the audience and leave them wishing for more. Their latest, Going to Hell, is at the top of the Billboard charts, and they have scored back to back number one hits with “Heaven Knows” and “Messed Up World”, and the latest “Follow Me Down” is pure gold. You do not want to miss them!

The number one reason to go to Rockville this year, drumroll please… is Slipknot! Corey Taylor and his little group of miscreants are some of the hardest working people in the business, and their newest album, .5 the Gray Chapter, is among their best work to date. Slipknot is a perennial crowd favorite because of their interaction with their fans, and a powerful stage presence. Slipknot alone is worth seeing, and the number one reason to go, but honestly the lineup at Rockville is epic and you can see it here: http://welcometorockvillefestival.com/lineup/
