Got Starz in their eyes…

Saturday night is full of opportunity for Cleveland music fans to see a lot of great live music - but isn't it always?  The Beachland Ballroom offers one-stop shopping for music geeks to take in a boatload of kick ass rock bands - all in the same building!  We've already discussed International Pop Overthrow - which will be happening in the Tavern portion of the Beachland complex.

Meanwhile, over in the Ballroom - hellfire, damnation, and a whole lotta guitar solos will be unleashed courtesy of a triple bill that is nearly guaranteed to borrow 2.68 % of your hearing - permanently.

Starz - Coliseum Rock

70's power pop godz Starz continue their love affair with the Beachland - where they recorded a double live album in 2004 - with another show for Cleveland - an area where albums like Coliseum Rock, Attention Shoppers! and Violation remain in rotation with music fans.

Here's a little song that you might remember......I wonder if Jukebox65 has this in her jukebox?  It seems like if you lived in Cleveland during the 70's, it was mandatory to love this song.  What is it about this band that people love so much? I'm curious to hear your take.

Here's a version of "It's A Riot", recorded live at that 2004 Beachland show:

Opening duties are perfectly matched with Cleveland's best bands - The Hot Rails and The Suede Brothers - and both are bands that play straight up unfiltered in-your-face rock and roll.  As a firm believer that one should never miss the opportunity to see The Suede Bros bring the rock,  you owe it to yourself to see these young talented gents if you haven't seen them yet - I doubt we'll see a better triple bill like this again before the end of the year!

Grab your rock shoes, and head to Waterloo!

    Coming from the KISS school of rock and roll, these guys were pretty entertaining. I remember a line from one of their songs that was about “blowing it all in the popcorn box” or something similar. A line to make Paul Stanley proud…
