WRZX/Indy Celebrates Nevermind's 20th With Home Grown Admiration

From the X103 Forevermind web page: "As a radio station we do not get the chance to pay respect to some of the great bands we play on the radio, let alone a landmark American music recording like Nevermind. The basic idea was approaching both local and national bands for this tribute album and asking them the question, “If you woke up one morning and wrote a song off of the Nevermind album, what would the song sound like?” We hope you enjoy what the artists on this tribute created from the original blueprint. Here we are now, entertain us…" Check out the Nirvana worship here:

Beady Eye Add Additional Tour Date In Boston

Click Blog Headline For Complete Entry
Beady Eye
announce today the addition of a Boston, MA show to their North American Fall 2011 Tour. The band (Liam Gallagher, Gem Archer, Andy Bell and Chris Sharrock) will be giving Boston fans a first live taste of their debut album, Different Gear, Still Speeding on December 10th at the House of Blues as part of a series of concerts beginning in Vancouver, BC on November 29th, including a return stop in New York City on December 9th and concluding in Boston on the 10th. See below for the complete tour itinerary.

Beady Eye just wrapped their North American live debut with sold-out shows in New York, Chicago, Toronto and Philadelphia to rave reviews. The Chicago Tribune was there for the band's first U.S. date and noted "You can take the band out of the stadium, but you can't take the stadium out of the band, and Beady Eye whipped through songs from its debut "Different Gear, Still Speeding" Saturday with the confidence of a seasoned act with nothing to prove."

Tickets for this round of North American dates just went on sale this past weekend and Boston will go on sale this Friday July 22nd. Please see below for detailed ticketing information. The band will be joined by Matt Jones on keyboards and Jeff Wootton on bass for all dates.

Fans can click here for Beady Eye's just released video for "The Beat Goes On" that was filmed during their recent performance at the Isle of Wight Festival:

Beady Eye's debut album, Different Gear, Still Speeding was released by Dangerbird Records in North America on March 1st. The album features 13 brand new songs written by the band and recorded at RAK Studios in London last fall with GRAMMY Award-winning producer Steve Lillywhite (U2, Dave Matthews Band, The Smiths).
Upon reviewing Different Gear, Still Speeding, The Boston Globe stops the naysayers in their tracks and warns, "For all those who thought Liam Gallagher would be musically astray without big brother Noel, meet Beady Eye."

While Paste noted that Beady Eye "...sounds like Oasis returning to its less complicated roots, stripping back the heavily overdubbed layers of their curtain call, 2008's Dig Out Your Soul. Beady Eye aren't here to dick around-they're here to rock.
