Last night we headed to the DNA Lounge in San Francisco to see State Line Empire as they were opening for Skid Row. The place was packed and The Devil in California opened the night with a solid set and then came State Line Empire for a ROCKIN set, and up next was Black Star Riders (Thin Lizzy) and headliner Skid Row closed out the night with a bang!


State Line Empire sounded great as they started off the set with a crowd favorite, Load Em Up. One thing is for sure, this band is never short on energy and they have an infectious rock vibe that spread through the crowd. If anyone arrived not knowing who State Line Empire were, they left that night being a devoted fan. They finished their set with another one of my favorites, Drive Me. Their set list for the night was:

  • Load em up
  • Into Pieces
  • Your Someone Else’s Problem Now
  • Know My Name
  • Lock & Load
  • Cross That Line
  • Raise Your Sins
  • Break Me Down
  • Drive Me

Check out the slide show of photos by Rockin Ryan from their set:

In case you missed the show, you can catch State Line Empire this Saturday at the Whisky-A-GoGo as they will be opening once more for Skid Row. We saw State Line Empire perform earlier this year at the Whisky for one of their 50th Anniversary shows along with Fault Line, Jetboy and Faster Pussycat. They were awesome and the sound system at the Whisky has been upgraded and just as in January, expect to hear a fantastic show. Check out their performance of Drive Me here:


You can check out a tribute video that Rockin Ryan put together for State Line Empire that includes footage and photos from their last shows.


If you don’t have it yet, make sure to pick up their  new EP “Raise Your Sins”, available on Itunes.  They just have everything you are looking for in a rock and roll band with a hint of metal strewn right in. You can read more about their EP review we did in September here.  Their new EP is filled with rockin hits and it is a bit heavier but also just enough old school touches to keep everyone happy. Visit their social media sites and stay up to date so you won’t miss any State Line Empire news.
