HRC Goes to Europe

Dearest Readers, A couple of years ago I decided that one of my goals for HRC was to go to some international shows. Despite a lot of domestic travel lately, I haven’t been outside the US since 2004, and when I used to do more international travel as a student, I never went to a […]

Take Control: Lords of Acid, Angelspit, Radical G, Chant @ Backstage Live, 3/20/11

“The magick is in the feeling I can make you do what I want you to” I am the queen of overcommitting myself. It would be my 20th show in the last 7 days, but somehow I found the energy. So back to Backstage Live I went, parking in the lot they overcharge for and […]

SXSW Day 4: Naam, eyehategod, Pentagram @ Scoot Inn, 3/19/11

My final show at SXSW would end at the same place it began. A perfect circle. I walked over to the Scoot Inn, my calves quivering from traversing West, South, and now East on this day alone. I heard the low murmur of doom as I approached, but I did not feel it. $10 later, […]

SXSW Day 4: Rival Sons @ Front Gate Tickets, 3/19/11

Rival Sons know how to harness the power of Twitter. They read my love tweets about their Jackalope set, informed me about another show they were doing in the afternoon, and the next thing I know I’m in a pedicab/chariot on my way to South Congress….my favorite area in Austin. When I arrive at what […]

SXSW Day 4: A Place to Bury Strangers @ Rumbler Lounge, 3/19/11

I had to speed walk back to the main part of Sixth Street once my friends reminded me that APTBS were playing a free show at Rumbler Lounge. By the time I arrived, they were heavy into their tiny set already. I stood at the back at first, but when the usual amount of unprepared […]

SXSW Day 4: Chapel Club @ Waterloo Records, 3/19/10

Chapel Club were another must see band for me. I’d had one unsuccessful attempt already….a BADGE ONLY show….but this time they were playing their final SXSW set in the parking lot of Waterloo Records for free. I can remember the moment I heard about Chapel Club. I had just arrived at our condo for Sundance, […]

SXSW Day 4: Rival Sons @ Jackalope, 3/19/11

I’d been receiving press releases for Rival Sons for a couple months, and was really digging their classic rock ‘n roll sound. I was very excited that they were playing several shows at SXSW, and they were one of the bands I HAD TO see. And after two misfires- one trek to the wrong venue […]

SXSW Day 3: The Vacant Lots, The Vandelles @ Hotel Vegas, 3/18/11

It was a very frustrating evening that had me completely rethinking my no badge/no wristband/no problem policy. I had intended on seeing the Metalliance tour which was making a SXSW stop: St. Vitus, Helmet, Kylesa, and Howl…who I even interviewed that evening. But they were playing at this tiny place called Dirty Dog, which had […]

HardRockChick Interviews Howl

March 18, 2011 | Howl spoke with me over the weekend at SXSW after playing a set earlier in the day for the Metalliance Tour. Topics included the Rhode Island metal scene, their own creative inspirations, and the best and worst (sometimes smelly!) parts of being touring musicians.
