Enter Shocktober / Industry Showcase 2013

 

Hey Fiends,

Hope you had a chance to tune in to the show last night. We kicked off SHOCKTOBER with some creepy gems from the 70’s. We went deep into the vaults, and exhumed the darkest stuff we could find from that era. The Halloween season is easily our favorite time of year. The Rock Solid Pressure Show is always dark , but in Shocktober we really crank out the terror tuneage. Last night was just a warmup of what we have in store for you in the coming weeks. We are also enjoying our busiest Halloween concert season ‘ever’…So many great concerts this month. And every one of em will be a Halloween Party indeed. This past weekend we kicked off Shocktober with a kickass show at The Local 662 which featured ROCKSTARR BENTLEY, 3D BURN, STONEGREY, and SAHE..That was an amazing night, and all the bands got onstage for an encore jam at the end (even me..well, thats been known to happen)..Then Sunday night we survived that ‘amazing’ ILL NINO show at State Theatre. Man was that fun! Also on the bill was SUNFLOWER DEAD, IN-CYDE,, CAROLINA BURN, AT SHOVELS END, and SEVENSINS..That was certainly a night to remember..More concerts this week too (see below)

But the concert that will be on everyone’s lips for quite some time, is THE ROCK SOLID PRESSURE INDUSTRY SHOWCASE 2013. This happened at State Theatre on Sept 28th. It was the 11 Year Anniversary for the event, and I can now say it was our most productive Showcase EVER!! We usually get a signing every year, but this year we are getting multiple signings..And they keep coming. We had one of the best Industry panels in our history, and they all are doing amazing things for their favorite bands. We made all the formal announcements on last nights broadcast, but if you missed the show..Here’s what’s happening so far in the Post-Showcase results..

*SUNSHINE & BULLETS signed with MELODIC REVOLUTION RECORDS

*BLAINE THE MONO signed a Development Deal with HIGH SONIC RECORDS

*FOR THOSE LIKE US and SCREAMING AT THE SILENCE were endorsed by SPAWN GUITARS

*BLUNT FORCE TRAUMA is awaiting an endorsement from DDRUM

*VIRGINIA ROSE BAND was awarded 5 free hours with Q ENTERTAINMENT LAW

*A(K)NEW was awarded 5 free hours of studio time from FULL WAVE SOUND

*Producer SHARON WHETSTONE has chosen the following bands to be included on the soundtrack for the upcoming film ‘Vendetta’..VIRGINIA ROSE BAND, A(K)NEW, DRVN, SUNSHINE & BULLETS, DRIVE 31..And there might be more

Next week we will be announcing some signings from STM RECORDS. We’re still waiting to see who mega-producer MATT LaPLANT has chosen to work with this year. I know there has been some contact with THE DEFIANT and BLUNT FORCE TRAUMA. We’ll keep you up to date as we get the info in. We’re also still waiting to hear if  JASON BIELER is interested in signing a Showcase band. Usually, it does not happen this fast, so we’re really overjoyed at all the cool things that are happening right now..Stay posted to this blog every week
