The QLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for Springfield’s Real Rock, 92.7 QLZ
On sale Friday
Tickets for The Toadies down at The Pageant in St. Louis go on sale tomorrow. The band is celebrating their 20th anniversary of their debut album Rubberneck with a show April 10th. Rubberneck is the record with “Possum Kingdom,” “I Came From the Water,” “Mister Love,” and others. What’s really crazy to think about is there are some of you out there right now reading this that weren’t even sperm in your dad’s testies when that album dropped. Man time if flying by. Toadies have put out other records in the meantime, including their latest, and quite bad ass 2012 album Play.Rock.Music. Tickets are $20 in advance and $22.50 day of the show (that’s if they don’t sell out). I’ll see you down there, for sure!
Scoring a film
Add film score producer to Korn front man Jonathan Davis’ resume. Davis created music for the film After the Dark, which is a movie about some college students facing a nuclear apocalypse and they have to decide who gets to go into a bunker. That hits theaters February 7th. See the trailer below:
Premiering in Philly
If you want to see the premier for Lamb of God’s documentary As The Palaces Burn, which heavily features footage and information about the manslaughter trial of front man Randy Blyth in Prague, you’re gonna have to head over to Philadelphia. If you can’t make the premier, you’ll be able to head up to Chicago to watch the film at the Ginger Man Tavern. The documentary was being filmed before Blythe was taken into custody and stuck through to the very end to the eventual acquittal. The Philadelphia premier at Trocadero Theater is February 16th. The Chicago showing will be February 28th. Details and a preview at AsThePalacesBurn.com. See the trailer below:
Meanwhile, Tim Lambesis’s murder for hire trial has been postponed in California. That’s because both sides took part in a pre-trial hearing to determine if there could be a possible plea deal for the As I Lay Dying singer. Lambesis was arrested last year and accused of hiring a hit man for $1,000 to off his estranged wife. He pleaded not guilty, but that could change. Proceedings will begin again February 6th. Aside from the Criminal complaint, Lambesis is also facing a civil case filed by his estranged wife.
