One of our FAVORITE BAD ASS BANDS… CROBOT  just released their new music video for Nowhere To Hide and it is KILLER!!!! These guys have such a refreshing new sound.,Crobot is a four piece band from Pennsylvania that have a Dirty Groove Rock sound. They are like no other band out there today. Crobot is bringing the life back into classic rock/ stoner rock  with a double dose of groove in a modern style. Think like Zep ala Soundgarden with a side of Wolfmother. They have such a killer sound that is groove heavy, riff rock or as they say: “Bang your head and shake your ass at the same time“. That is the perfect way to describe it it. One thing they are not lacking is ENERGY and you definitely can’t miss them.  We can’t get enough of them. Check out their new video here:

 

They are currently out on tour with two more of our favorite bands; Kyng and Kill Devil Hill.   They also just released their EP Legend of the Spaceborn Killer and it is going to take the music scene by storm. They really are bringing something new to the table and you can’t help but get instantly hooked. You can also check out our interview with Crobot when they came to play at the DNA Lounge here in San Francisco:

 

These guys are so much fun and they all have an infectious laugh. Their personalities light up the room on and off the stage.  Crobot is Brandon Yeagley on Lead Vocals and  Harp, Bishop on Guitar and Vocals, Jake Figueroa on Bass and Paul Figueroa – Drums. Together these four deliver a dirty groove rock sound that will have moving in no time. 

 

Here is  a tribute video that Rockin Ryan put together with footage of their San Francisco set:

Crobot

I have been looking forward to covering a lot of shows this month, but none as much as Crobot. Crobot is a four piece band from Pennsylvania that have a Dirty Groove Rock sound. They are like no other band out there today. Crobot is bringing the life back into classic rock/ stoner rock  with a double dose of groove in a modern style. Think like Zep ala Soundgarden with a side of Wolfmother. They have such a killer sound that is groove heavy, riff rock or as they say: “Bang your head and shake your ass at the same time“. That is the perfect way to describe it it. One thing they are not lacking is ENERGY and you definitely can’t miss them. We were excited to have them coming to San Francisco and we caught up with them before playing their set at the DNA Lounge. Here is that interview:

 

These guys are so much fun and they all have an infectious laugh. Their personalities light up the room on and off the stage.  Crobot is Brandon Yeagley on Lead Vocals and  Harp, Bishop on Guitar and Vocals, Jake Figueroa on Bass and Paul Figueroa – Drums. Together these four deliver a dirty groove rock sound that will have moving in no time. 

 

They performed to a packed room at the DNA and their energy was magnetic as the crowd went wild for them.  Talking to several in the crowd after, everyone commented on how fuckin bad ass these guys are.  They loved them and couldn’t wait to get more of them.  That is exactly how we felt. Just as they finished their set, we were already thinking of when is the next time to we could catch them LIVE! Here is  a tribute video that Rockin Ryan put together with footage of their San Francisco set:

Dave Grohl at SXSW

Dave Grohl at SXSW

Dave Grohl inspires at SXSW

Dave Grohl delivers an incredibly inspiring Keynote Address at SXSW Music Festival in Austin, Texas. Dave’s speech is absolutely remarkable to watch. His sense of humor and personality really shines through. If you are a musician, there is no way possible that you can watch this video and not be even more inspired and dedicated to music.

His speech goes on to recount his Do-it-Yourself  Recordings when he was just 12 years old and also how Nirvana changed his life and how he dealt with the death of Kurt Cobain.  You really have to watch it for yourself.

It possibly can be the best spent 60 minutes you spend to keep your motivation and dedication to music. My favorite quote is when Dave talks about when he first started playing guitar and how it absorbed him.

“I devoted every waking hour to playing music.

It became my religion, 

the record store; my church,

the Rock Stars; my saints

and their songs; my hymns”

Those words there ring true for so many and Dave really does inspire others to pick up that instrument and go ahead and play, write, sing; just find your own voice.

Truly amazing!

Here is the link where you can watch the entire speech.
