This past Saturday at the legendary Whisky a Go Go was a night that many will remember. Skid Row was making a stop at the legendary venue for their United World Rebellion Tour. It was a sold out show and the venue was packed with a crowd that was ready to ROCK!  The opening bands, Ragdoll, No More Solace, State Line Empire, and Shattered Sun all put on excellent sets. We just caught them at the DNA Lounge in San Francisco earlier in the week and they were so spectacular that we wouldn’t miss their Hollywood show.

Skid Row has been filling up venue after venue and everyone in attendance will surely agree that they put on an amazing performance.  Skid Row is:

  • Johnny Solinger (vocals)
  • Scotti Hill (guitar)
  • Rachel Bolan (bass)
  • Snake Sabo (guitar)
  • Rob Hammersmith (drums)

Once again, they sounded great and Johnny killed it on vocals.  Scotti and Snake are madmen on their guitars as they each dominated their area and commanded the attention of the audience with their amazing guitar work. Rachel on bass is always a pleasure to watch, he is such a cool cat and we were even treated to hearing him sing on Psycho. Rob is a powerhouse on the drums and brings the sound all together.  What I really love is that each band member feed off each other’s energy and their is such a cohesion as they play. They played a lot of the fan favorites and some new songs. They even played a kick ass cover of Cheap Trick’s  Surrender. Check it out here:

 

The energy of the crowd was literally off the charts. I have been to many shows at the Whisky and Saturday night had me thinking, I was transported to the bustling nightclub back in the late 80’s. There was only one thing on everyone’s agenda…. To Rock out!  Check out the slide show of Rockin Ryan’s photos from their set:

Skid Row are touring in support of their highly anticipated seven song EP,  RISE OF THE DAMNATION ARMY – UNITED WORLD REBELLION – CHAPTER TWO”. The EP is set for an August 5th release in North America via Megaforce Records. If you haven’t listened to any of their newer music, you are missing out. Their United World Rebellion Chapter One is bad ass! With tracks like the guitar crazy Kings of Demolition or Letting Go you might think you are listening to an old Skid Row album. Then their is the stellar ballad of This is Killing Me that will become one of your favorites. Stitches brings a dose of metal that is just the perfect touch. Johnny’s vocals are spot on with his throaty gritty style and will definitely have you beggin for more!

Make sure to visit their social media sites to check for upcoming tour dates and the latest on all Skid Row news. I will leave you with some videos from their set!
