Skogsrojet

REVIEW AND PHOTOS BY MARKO SYRJALA

 Skogsrojet is one of these newer hard rock / metal festivals organized in the promised land of festivals, Sweden. The two day event is held in the outlying village of Rejmyre and the nearest town is Norrkoping about 40 kilometers away. The festival was held for the first time in 2006 and it has been increasing steadily year by year. Last years line-up included Alice Cooper, Doro, Testament and L.A. Guns and now the fans were treated to Twisted Sister, Helloween, Pretty Maids and Lita Ford. As you can see from the list of names, the event organizers rely heavily on traditional hard rock spiced with a few heavier acts. I don’t know if this kind of concept would work anywhere else, but in Sweden, but it works. This year, the festival again gathered thousands of participants who were eager to rock hard!!!

Hard Rock Legend Shaves Head To Fight Childhood Cancer!

March 6th, 2012

Hard rock guitarist Brent Muscat might be best known as the founding guitarist for Hollywood legends Faster Pussycat or for tearing up the Vegas scene with his band Sin City Sinners, but Brent is also a Cancer survivor.

Determined to use his celebrity to help raise funds to find a cure for Cancer, Brent became involved with the St. Baldrick’s Organization, a non profit committed to funding the best research for kids with cancer and the top pediatric oncologists.

“I felt as a parent and a Cancer Survivor this was something I had to do. On March 16, I will have my head shaved in front of a live audience to stand in solidarity with kids fighting cancer, but more importantly, to raise money to find cures through the St Baldrick’s charity”

Sin City Sinners are planning a major concert and All Star Jam the night of the shaving featuring Carlos Cavazo (Quiet Riot, RATT), Eric Dover (Slash’s Snakepit, Alice Cooper),Louie Merlino (Beggars & Thieves), Scott Griffin (LA Guns) and many more.

The action takes place at Club Madrid inside Sunset Station. The event is FREE & open to the public. The St Baldrick’s head shaving party begins @9pm with the concert to follow.

South Texas Rock Fest 2008

July 14th, 2008

With the recent resurgence in popularity of outdoor summer hard rock festivals such as Rocklahoma and the upcoming Rock On The Bayou fest that harken back to the glory days of the famed 80’s Monsters Of Rock festival, the Lonestar state, not to be outdone by our Okie counterparts, offered up the first annual Nikita Productions Presents: South Texas Rock Fest.

 

Boasting an almost identical roster of artists as the Rocklahoma lineup, such as Queensryche, Skid Row, Faster Pussycat, Dokken, Tesla, and even Texas favorites Helstar, bands ping ponged back and forth over the course of the weekend, shuttling from Texas to Oklahoma and vice versa.

 

Garnering media attention from Sirius Satellite Radio, XM’s Boneyard and sponsorship from Miller Lite beer and Harley Davidson motorcycles, the weekend long festival went off without a hitch. The only real complaint would’ve been the grueling Texas heat. Saturday afternoon there was not a cloud to be found in the summer sky, and it made the "all you can hear buffet of buttrawk" seemingly "Hotter Than Hell" but would you really want to hear Y&T play "Summertime Girls" in the rain?

 

Divided up between two stages and hosted on the Javelina Harley Davidson fairgrounds, vendors served up ice cold Miller Lite products to the estimated capacity crowd of 20,000 strong. Also of note, where as the Rocklahoma crowd could only enjoy 3% beer to their heart’s content, us Texan’s relished in the full strength domestic beer. This was a major concern when choosing which festival to cover. Besides beer, fans could enjoy frozen margaritas’s, fajita’s, burgers, shop for glass blown pipes, rock t-shirts and various other symbolic mementos of a gluttonous good time.
