NJ thrashers Robots And Monsters are hanging out at home Thursday eve at rock club Dingbatz in Clifton, NJ.  They’re not performing – well, they kind of are.  I’ll be chatting with the band about their Jersey roots, and their surging popularity.  We chose Dingbatz because it’s their home turf.  And it’s just a really cool club, with one of…

In a few weeks, Blonde And Crossbones will be heading upstate, to hang for a few days with Hatebreed drummer Matt Byrne.  I met Byrne (Byrne!) on the band’s tour bus shortly before their show last summer at Toad’s Place in New Haven, CT.  As the weeks passed — I found out a really wild bit of personal trivia: His grandparents were…

150 150 Blonde and Crossbones | Juliet Huddy

Backstage after a Lamb of God concert last May, I got a chance to meet a man who is not only a brilliant artist, but is now a good friend.  Vincent Castiglia is one of the most complicated people I’ve ever met.  Precisely why he is on another level.

THEY SAID NO TO RECORD DEALS…AND LIVED TO TELL ABOUT IT.

150 150 Blonde and Crossbones | Juliet Huddy

A lot of us adults (and I use that term loosely) look at kids these days with the kind of attitude…well, our parents had with us.  “Do you know, Ava, that mommy used to walk a mile to school, in the rain, with no shoes on? In the winter!?” (That never happened) (And I don’t have a kid named Ava)…

It began at a karaoke bar.  Two years later, guitar phenom Mitchell C. Mitchell (And that’s what I call him. No “Mitch”, just – MitchellCMitchell) and his band January Jane and I are still hitting the karaoke bars, (only he sounds infinitely better).  Tonight, we’ll be together once again, when we go LIVE HERE (and on Facebook LIVE/Blonde And Crossbones) with…

BLACK MAP ALL OVER THE WORLD

150 150 Blonde and Crossbones | Juliet Huddy

When I heard Black Map‘s “Run Rabbit Run” on Sirius Octane a few months back, my visceral response was to…freak out.   That incredible song from their upcoming album “In Droves” was one of my personal Top 10 for 2016.  Full disclosure – the NoCal band is one of my pet projects; and by ‘pet project’ I don’t mean to sound…
