So as many of you know, Broken Headphones has turned 3 years old this month. I am so stoked to have been able to continue fueling this site with nonsence and without you, the reader, it would never have been possible.
So thanks to everyone out there that has wasted some of their life on my site. It means a ton to me.
In a celebration of sorts, I have gotten a few bands to play a show in Kent on Aug. 28th. That’s this Sunday for those of you who may not have a calender handy.
On Sunday night, The Stone Tavernin Kent, OH will host Valdosta, GA’s Ninja Gun with special guests Playoff Beardfrom Pittsburgh and local heros (and fellow homies) Worship This!.
I have made acquaintances with the folk/punk/country/rock Ninja Gun thanks to this site. Jonathan Coody, the lead singer of the band, emailed me a while back thanking me for giving a review I did on their sophomore release Restless Rubes. We have kept in touch ever since. Mixing a bit of country and folk into rock and punk has never sounded so good.
Punk rockers Playoff Beard (love the name) hail from Pittsburgh and Kent (I know one of the members is a fellow alumni). I wish I could say I knew more of their material, but I guess I will find out more in a couple of days. I will be sure to fill you all in.
Worship This! are a group of good guys who I am happy to call friends. They also have a good thing going for them as their DIY punk rock band is just awesome. I try and not talk up my friend’s bands a lot, but I am just thrilled about their sound. Recently the foursome opened up for Iron Chic in NYC. That right there is bad ass.
The show is going to start around 9pm and is 21+ only. Formerly Professor’s Pub, the Stone Tavern is in the heart of Kent located at 110 E. Main St., Kent, OH, 44242.
This is a free show, but donations are encouraged for the touring band.
Come out and have fun. The Stone Tavern has a great beer list and is just a fun place in general to hang at.
Who cares if the show is on a Sunday night? Get your music-loving butts out to Kent and come see these kick awesome bands!!!
