Chiodos Doesn’t Play Venue

Comments Off on Chiodos Doesn’t Play Venue

Chiodos was scheduled to play in McAllen, TX last night but refused to play because they did not like what they saw. Here’s what Craig Owens from Chiodos had to say:

To our fans in McAllen, TX

We are super sad about everything that went down yesterday and wanted to write you a note to let you know what happened. We pulled up to the venue at 1pm and were ready to load all of gear in to get set up for both shows. When we got inside, the stage hadn’t even been set up. The venue crew started putting together a stage (that looked like it was made up of tables) at 2 PM. Once everything started getting put together our manager said he didn’t feel as though it were safe for you guys, or for us to play. Our fans are more important to us than anything and we would never want to put you guys in any danger. Please know we love playing these smaller venues with smaller stages but we want to make sure everyone can have a good time safely. We PROMISE we will be back in McAllen as soon as humanly possible to make this up. We are so sorry we couldn’t play, and are just as bummed as some of you are.

With love,

Scary Kids Scaring Kids

Hometown: Gilbert, AZ
Genre: Rock, Screamo, Alternative
Sounds like: Chiodos, Emery, A Change Of Pace
Current Album: Scary Kids Scaring Kids
Official Site:

Scary Kids Scaring Kids have come along way from their first album. I know its cliche to say a band has matured from album to album, but with SKSK’s latest release, maturity is the first word that comes to mind. Energetic rock with poppy chorus and dirty vocals are fluid on their self-titled latest release. Previous releases of their work I considered progressive and experimental, but in no means am I saying its a bad thing. This band has grown on me and with their latest release, I’m in love. Seriously, go pick up their latest and rock it.

Echo The Sky

Hometown: Kansas City, Missouri
Genre: Rock, Progressive, Electronica
Sounds like: Incubus, Bedlight For Blueyes, Valencia
Current Album: Echo The Sky
Official Site:

It amazes me to hear this band, or should a say a couple guys. Echo The Sky consists of two guys, that completely blow you away to think that that much sound could come from just the two of them. These talented guys have recently released a 10 track self titled, self produced album that is definitely one to be reckoned with.

MUSIC VIDEO OF THE DAY: Avenged Sevenfold Seize The Day

Back in 1999, Nine Inch Nails makes their first-ever appearance at a televised honors show when they perform at the 1999 MTV Video Music Awards. That same year they also released The Fragile which was nominated for Best Alternative Music Performance.

And there she was, reflecting so brightly the warmth that she installs and there she was, we were infinite for a moment.

Sounds like: Dance Gavin Dance, Underoath, We Love To Party
Current Album: Everything Perfect On A Wrong Day

So you like to dance? Well how about with some agression and energy. That’s how I feel when I hear Sky Eats Airplane. Hardcore melody deeply infused with your techno beats, each song is unique within itself and sounds amazing. Here’s a band that make sense in so many ways and I’m highly anticipating the direction of this band. Check them out, get out your tap shoes and through your arms around. Because things are just getting started…Sky Eats Airplane.
