Rocker Tycoon Day: Lower Places by Nikki Sue & the Bad News

leave a comment »

It’s about time for another video.  But this time I didn’t take it at a show.  Instead this is an official music video for Lower Places by Nikki Sue and the Bad News.  What a sick like tumbling riff!  About the Video… We finally get to see what was in that GODDAMNED suitcase in Pulp Fiction.  (I told you it wasn’t Marselus Wallaces soul.)  This song was a preview for NS&tBN’s new Album on the same name.  If you need a country fix in the big city this is your kinda thing.  If you still have that “I don’t like country” stigma let me just say two things.  1) You’re listening to the wrong country music.  2) Get your head out of your ass, country is the roots of rock.

Nikki Sue & The Bad News w/ Black Out Stereo @ Lucky 7s

leave a comment »

February 8th Lucky 7 Tavern (@Lucky7Tavern on twitter) welcomed two previously unseen bands into her doors.  Nikki Sue & the Bad News played Tuesday nights Local Rock Show with Black Out Stereo.  Rock did ensue, forthwith!

Nikki Sue & the Bad News is Nikki Ilchert (Guitar, Vox) , Ben Hutcheon (Bass), Mark Pugliese (Drums), Mike Petzinger (Guitar).  Think a punkier Patsy Cline.  There’s a ton of potential for these newcomers… Alt Country rock is on a huge resurgence and my question is could Nikki Sue step up to filling the crater that was left in the wake of losing Anyday Parade?  Only time will tell, but be on the look out they are currently recording and are due to debut material soon!

Jesse Wolf (vocals/guitar) Chris Manning (guitar) Matt Brewster (bass) Mark Pugliese (drums) are Black Out Stereo.  Combine elements of Springsteen with Rancid and Social Distortion and you have a very East Coast Rock-a-Billy band.  Songs you hear once and can’t help but sing along to,  Lead guitar that begs you to follow along with your personal air system and a Rhythm section that keeps you stumping!  All the pieces fit together seamlessly.  Where the hell have these guys been hiding out at?  Why is this the first time I’ve seen them live?  Well, either way, it won’t be the last.
