Kentucky rockers Black Stone Cherry says All Music.com employ a fiery yet rootsy mix of hard rock and post-grunge/heavy metal that invokes names like Stone Sour, Theory of a Deadman, Buckcherry, and Shinedown. This weekend the group will be performing at Scout Bar.
According to the band members, none of whom were born before 1983, the lack of anything to do in their hometown, coupled with a rich musical background in their community and families, led them to start playing music. Lead vocalist and guitarist Chris Robertson met drummer John Fred Young (the son of Kentucky Headhunters' Richard Young) in school, and the two played music together throughout high school. In June of 2001, Black Stone Cherry officially formed with guitarist Ben Wells and bassist Jon Lawhon. They began holding shows at clubs in the area, and after a short while they gained a large all-ages following.
Chad Childers of Loudwire.com recently wrote, "Sometimes covers are so good you can't sit on them. Thankfully, Black Stone Cherry not only put their take on the Tracy Chapman classic "Give Me One Reason" on the digital only expanded edition of The Human Condition album, but they've also given us a new video from the studio to accompany it. Singer Chris Robertson's gritty, soulful voice and the band's funkier arrangement do justice to the Chapman original while still adding the group's own stamp on the song.
The band recorded its first album for In de Goot/Roadrunner Records, and after returning from the recording session, Black Stone Cherry held a homecoming concert at the local high school. Their self-titled debut album was released in July of 2006, followed by Folklore and Superstition in 2008. It performed well on the charts, both in America and across Europe. The band's third album, 2011's Between the Devil & the Deep Blue Sea, was recorded in Los Angeles with producer Howard Benson (Daughtry, Three Days Grace). It peaked inside the Top 40 of the album charts in their home country, and hit the top spot in Great Britain. The band toured the globe in support and won fans as far away as Japan.
After touring the U.S. and Europe for more than a year, the band reconvened in early 2020 at bassist Jon Lawhon's Monocle Studio. Producing themselves, they tracked nearly 20 songs before completing an album in late March. In summer post-production they pared down the final list to 13 tracks. In early August, they issued a lyric video for set opener "Ringin' in My Head," and followed it two weeks later with a video single for "Again." In late October, Black Stone Cherry released The Human Condition through the Mascot Label Group.

This weekend its Collect-A-Con in NRG Park at the NRG Center. The event boasts over five-hundred dealers and vendors with collectable trading cards, sports cards, comics, video games and vintage cards. The promoters call the two day event "The Nation's Largest Trading Card & Pop Culture Convention"
This weekend its 80's pop rapper Vanilla Ice as the event's special guest performer.
Recently their was a Collect-A-Con in Frisco,Texas. Its co-founder told culture-map.com Dallas, “Collect-A-Con is a place where you can find all types of amazing collectibles,” “You can meet celebrities, get autographs, take pictures, and meet other fans with similar interests".
Wirz, who grew up and still lives in North Texas, collects comic books, toys, sports cards, and Pokémon cards — all items that will be for sale from hundreds of vendors at Collect-a-Con, along with video games, action figures, Funko Pops, and related ephemera.
“I have been collecting my entire life,” Wirz says. “Collecting is a fun and exciting hobby. It's not only nostalgic, but it’s about having something representing your favorite character or player. Also, the hunt to find a specific card or other item that you absolutely want is an exhilarating experience — it's like a treasure hunt.”
Wirz says Collect-A-Con came about because of “the market dramatically increasing in interest over the past few years,” and the fact that you often can’t find specific cards or other collectibles in local stores.
This weekend its Collect-A-Con at NRG Center Ticket information website (Click Here).

Set at the end of the 1980s in one of the Sunset Strip’s last legendary venues, a place where superstar Stacee Jaxx takes the stage and groupies line up to turn their fantasies into reality. Amidst the madness, aspiring rock star — and resident toilet cleaner — Drew longs to take the stage as the next big thing. He falls for Sherri, a small-town girl, fresh off the bus from Kansas with stars in her eyes. But the rock and roll fairytale is about to end when developers sweep into town with plans to turn the fabled Strip into just another strip mall. Can Drew, Sherri, and the gang save the strip and themselves before it’s too late?

Alien Weaponry are “one of the most exciting young metal bands in the world right now” according to Revolver Magazine in the USA. And they’re not the only ones who thinks so. Since well before they released their debut album Tū on 1 June 2018, fans, bloggers, the music industry and the media worldwide have raved about Alien Weaponry’s unique blend of thrash metal and their native language, Te Reo Māori.
The three-piece thrash metal band from Waipu, New Zealand, was formed in 2010 by brothers Lewis and Henry de Jong, who were 8 and 10 years old at the time. The band consists of Lewis de Jong (guitar and vocals), Henry de Jong (drums), and Ethan Trembath (bass guitar).
Most noted for their fusion of Te Reo Māori (the native language of New Zealand) with thrash metal, they deliver emotionally and politically charged stories of conflict and grief with a warrior-like attitude. Drummer Henry de Jong says, “Our musical style and messages have a lot of similarities with haka, which is often brutal, angry and about stories of great courage or loss.”
