Las Vegas has the highs and lows—which is perfect for a band wanting material for an album. That’s according to Adrian Patrick from the band Otherwise. They were in town yesterday with Pop Evil at Boondocks. Before the show, the band stopped in to talk with QLZ’s Lars and Lytle (mp3 download). Patrick said that forming a band in Sin City helped get a grasp on a wide range of what life can throw at you. “It’s a town of extremes light and dark and we try to encapsulate that on the album True Love Never Dies.” Patrick says that there’s something for everyone in Otherwise’s music. “Happiness, extreme sadness, and anger, There’s a party song on the album … just like the town, man, if it wasn’t for that city we wouldn’t be who we are or make the music we make.” Listen to the podcast below:
Letting it all out
Tonight, In This Moment will be at Boondocks and you’ll see a side of front woman Maria Brink that hasn’t been seen until this year. Monday on QLZ with Lars and Lytle, Brink said that fans can expect an explosive performance. Brink says she loves the theatre and really wants to put on a full on show. “The Theatrical kinda pop-side of things like Michael Jackson all these really spectacular shows. … All the way up to until this year I don’t know what was wrong with me or what I was holding back for but I really want to put on a show now. So, literally every song is like a different scene with something happening. And the show is like from beginning to end is gonna keep people interested. Every. Single. Song.” Brink and the boys from In This Moment will be at Boondocks with Brian Head Welch’s band Love and Death tonight. Tickets are $15. Listen to Brink on Lars and Lytle below (or at this link).
