DNCE Concert Review! Band Provides Us With An Absolutely Delicious Evening!


(PCM) I recently attended DNCE’s sold-out show at Coda in Philadelphia, PA and I could not help but have the thought that I was being let in on a secret that is just so juicy you feel the desire to share it with everyone that you know! However, there is the other side of that secret, the part that makes you want to hold it close and keep it in that intimate inner circle which is just as overpowering. This idea gives you an idea about my head space while watching DNCE perform!

They are so freaking good that I feel like everyone in the world needs to let loose and experience their music, however I truly enjoyed the intimate experience of jamming out with this band in the atmosphere of a small sweaty nightclub. Their energy was intoxicating! The band is frontman Joe Jonas, guitarist JinJoo Lee, bassist/keyboardist Cole Whittle, and drummer Jack Lawless and they are flawless!


Formed in the summer of 2015, DNCE was born from Jonas’s long-brewing plan to launch an offbeat pop project inspired by the melodic R&B of Earth, Wind & Fire and Hall & Oates. Almost as soon as they started playing together, DNCE had a palpable chemistry and easy camaraderie which is an asset that carries directly over to their audience! The band claims they want DNCE to feel like a party and from what I witnessed during their recent concert, they have certainly succeeded!

There were no rules, no judgement, just everyone out on a Sunday night to let loose, have a good time and get their DNCE on all night long! DNCE’s debut EP “SWAAY” dropped on October 23 and they are currently enjoying the growing success of their first single, the delightfully catchy “Cake By The Ocean”! Their set consisted of tracks from “SWAAY” mixed in with some amazing covers of 90’s hits such as “Waterfalls” by TLC and even a little Prince thrown in for good measure.

I am certainly expecting to hear a lot more from DNCE in the coming year and we absolutely can’t wait to see them live once again! The band has a few upcoming live appearances in 2015 which are:


12/1 – Dallas, TX – KHKS Jingle Ball

12/3 – San Francisco, CA – KYLD Jingle Ball

12/4 – Los Angeles, CA – KIIS Jingle Ball
12/7 – Minneapolis, MN – KDWB Jingle Ball
12/11 – New York – Z100 Jingle Ball
12/16 – Chicago – WKSC Jingle Ball
12/17 – Atlanta, GA – WWPW
12/18 – Miami, FL – WHYI Jingle Ball
12/19 – Tampa, FL – WFLZ Jingle Ball

Eagles Of Death Metal Release A Statement Following Paris Terror Attacks


(PCM) Rockers Eagles of Death Metal have released the following statement after the horrific terror attacks that claimed hundreds of lives in Paris:

While the band is now home safe, we are horrified and still trying to come to terms with what happened in France. Our thoughts and hearts are first and foremost with our brother Nick Alexander, our record company comrades Thomas Ayad, Marie Mosser, and Manu Perez, and all the friends and fans whose lives were taken in Paris, as well as their friends, families, and loved ones.

Although bonded in grief with the victims, the fans, the families, the citizens of Paris, and all those affected by terrorism, we are proud to stand together, with our new family, now united by a common goal of love and compassion.

We would like to thank the French police, the FBI, the U.S. and French State Departments, and especially all those at ground zero with us who helped each other as best they could during this unimaginable ordeal, proving once again that love overshadows evil.

All EODM shows are on hold until further notice.

Vive la musique, vive la liberté, vive la France, and vive EODM.

GWAR Celebrate 30 Years! Exclusive Interview And Concert Review!


(PCM) Can you believe that GWAR has been wreaking havoc all over the planet for 30 years? For fans that is no surprise at all!  The longevity of this band is certainly due to their unwavering dedication and determination for world domination, and oh, you know, that whole music thing! GWAR has continued to thrive against all odds and show absolutely no signs of slowing down anytime soon.

As usual GWAR provided an amazing show during their recent stop at the Electric Factory in Philadelphia, PA. For me, attending a GWAR show is a bit bittersweet as I can still feel the tragic loss of the great Oderus Urungus (Dave Brockie), however I give the remaining members of GWAR all the credit in the world for continuing to move forward while keeping the spirit of Oderus alive in the music.


For this tour we find our intergalactic space lords battling everyone’s favorite demon … the internet! GWAR is on a quest to kill the internet and that mission of course brought out the blood and gore (seriously, would it be a GWAR show without it?)!  GWAR are not a band for the sensitive or easily offended, but fans can truly appreciate their tongue-in-cheek and snarky humor. I adore that they are fearless when it comes to tackling a lot of subject matter that would otherwise be taboo to other artists.

For this tour, in particular, GWAR brought out several deep-cuts from throughout their 30 year history as a band including “Jack The World”, “I’m In Love (With a Dead Dog)”, “Meat Sandwich” and “Captain Crunch”. Hearing these songs live was a delightful treat for fans and the band’s set consisted of a perfect mix of both old and new material.


I had a chance to catch up with both Pustulus and Blothar of GWAR for an exclusive interview just prior to them slaying the stage!  Watch below to see us discuss everything from Thanksgiving to porn!

As GWAR continue their global domination on their 30th Anniversary tour, the intergalactic warlords have announced a special show for New Year’s Eve! “Midnight in the GWARden of New Year’s Evil” will take place December 31st at the National in GWAR’s adopted home of Richmond, Virginia. The event is presented by Night Prowler Productions and XL102.
This unprecedented celebration is a must attend for all Bohabs as GWAR is set to ring in the New Year with a special one of a kind performance. Special guests and exclusive events for the evening will be announced in the coming weeks. Tickets go on sale this Friday at 10:00 AM Eastern HERE.

After Romeo Gift Us With A Gorgeous Acapella Cover Of Adele’s “Hello”


(PCM) After Romeo’s acapella cover of Adele’s mega-hit “Hello” is probably one of the best that we have heard! The group’s smooth vocals and harmonies shows the vocal depth of the band in a more stripped down setting. According to the band, however, the creative process behind recording the cover took a little bit of time!

Drew admits that, “when hundreds of covers popped up immediately, it took us a minute to figure out how to make this unique. So we experimented on a bunch of things but this was the one we all were happy with. Our version only uses our vocals. So everything you hear, all the background music and sounds, was made with our mouths (no instruments).”

After Romeo also shot and edited the video, so talk about a labor of love, and one fantastic song and video!
