Alucard
Jan 21st, 2005 at 10:12pm
 
Since we are plugging local music, I figured that I would give my son's band a plug. Alucard just got out of the studio with songs for their next cd. They have a hall show on Friday, Feb. 11th at 15 mile and Utica roads. It is either a VFW hall or American Legion hall. You can't miss it if you go. They are greatly improved with their new lead singer. Come check them out and hear the new tunes!

It's actually a Lions Club hall. There is a big lion out in front. The hall is on the east side of the street and it is just a little south of the big ice arena where the Motor City Mechanics play. They just played a great show at the Shelter last saturday. This will be one of the last local shows that they do for a while because they will be hitting the road soon and be gone for a couple of months. The Weakend is also on the show this friday the 11th.

The new album is finished. Man, this album rocks hard and heavy! Great  riffs. Catchy melodies. Smokin' guitar solos!!! The album should be out next month. The artwork is being worked on now.  And I'm not joking about these guitar solos. Eddie Van Halen and Joe Satriani would be looking over their shoulders if they heard this stuff. The band is leaving town for a few days starting May 18th when they will be playing in Marquette Michigan, followed by gigs the next three days in Houghton Michigan, one in Wisconsin, and the next day just outside of Chicago. I am leaning toward taking a ride up north to see the Marquette and Houghton shows. Anyone want to go?

Alucard has a show this Friday, May 26th, at the Fraser Lions Club on Utica Road just south of 15 mile. The Weakend is also on this show, so if anyone wanted to check out either or both bands, here's a good chance.

OOPS! The cd comes out on October 10th, not the 11th. Alucard will be playing this Friday the 6th at the Myspace Cafe on 13 Mile east of Hayes. The Weakend is also on the show. Listen to Doug Podell's "Motor City Riffs" show on Sunday nights from 10 PM to 11 PM to hear some of Alucard's new album.

Hope that someone from the board can make it out on Tuesday evening for Alucard's cd release show. It is an early show and it is free. There is an opening act going on around 6 PM and Alucard should be on by 7 PM. The show is at Rockabilly's records on M 59 just east of Van d**e. It is on the north side of the street. This will be Alucard's last local show for a while. They head out on tour to promote the new album on Friday the 13th with a show on U of M's campus and then it will be out west as far as California and the west coast. Hope to see someone from the board on Tuesday. If anyone lives out west, you can check the band's Myspace page (www.myspace.com/alucardrock) for the cities that they will be playing on this tour.

There is a hall show on Wed. December 27th at the Knights of Columbus with Alucard, The Weakend, and three other excellent local bands. All five of these bands are great. Worth checking out if you have the time.

Just another note about the band's Daytona beach show. If anyone is interested, you can watch their set live on the internet Monday night around 7:00 PM. Go to www.myspace.com/coffeeshoptv and then scroll down to where it says watch coffee shop tv or look at the schedule of coffee shop tv shows. You should be able to find something to click on to take you to their live webcast.

The tour is going well. Some venues had smaller crowds of about 30 or 40 people, some venues had from 2 to 3 hundred. They are getting very positive feedback along the way and making new fans.  They are selling a good amount of merchandise so they have gas and food money. They also have been pretty lucky as far as lodging because they know people in most of the cities they have played and in the cities they didn't, someone from one of the other bands they played with put them up. The guy who owns the small label they signed with is doing a lot of promo for them around the country and has their cd in many well known record stores. The goal of this guy is of course to get them picked up by a bigger label. They are intent on touring as much as possible until this happens. Good thing they got out of Florida when they did, because those tornados went right through the area they played a couple of gigs in a few days ago.

Thanks for the concern. Actually, tonight they are in Bowling Green Ohio at Howard's Club H. After this show, this part of the tour is over and they come home Sunday and play GS 360 in Warren and then play some other local shows for a few weeks before they go back on the road for a tour of the west coast and western US.

Sorry I didn't see this earlier. Alucard went on about 8:15 and man did they rock out! That venue has a great sound system and it was mixed up nice and loud and really powerful. Alucard plays Friday March 9th at the Magic Stick and this will be their last local show before they go back out on tour, this time to the west coast.
Also, Alternative Press reviewed their cd in this month's issue and gave it 3 1/2 out of 4 stars!. Cool!

Hey, Magic stick is just about a mile from my office!
Are you going to that show oldfriend? What time is it?
Maybe some of us Detroiters can hook up before the show! (Maybe Wally will come out, too, since it's close to his favorite restaurant...)

I am definitely going. There is also going to be some kind of fashion show besides the live bands. I don't know what time everything starts, but doors usually open around 8 at the Magic Stick. I'll have to pick up a Metro Times or Real Detroit on Wednesday. I am sure it will be listed there.

The Fenton show was amazing. Girls were screaming like it was the Beatles on Ed Sullivan. I have watched the video of this show a few times and get a bigger kick out of it each time I watch it. Anyway, the band is in Urbana Illinois tonight at the Iron Post.

Well, they never made it to Minneapolis. Half way from Madison, the van's transmission started acting up. They left their trailer full of equipment with some friends in Illinois, and are trying to make it back home as I write this. If they get here without any trouble, the van goes in later today for transmision repair and they hope to meet back up with the Swellers for Thursday's show in Council Bluffs, Iowa.

The band missed their show in Iowa because repairs on the van were not finished until late yesterday evening. As soon as repairs were finished, the band hit the road immediately and made it in to Omaha Nebraska about 10 AM this morning. They will get some sleep this afternoon before playing their show tonight in Omaha and then continue the tour with the Swellers.

what does a venue do when a band isnt able to make it?
it must be really hard for these up and coming bands who are basically playing for gas money to get their name out there then they come up with vehicle problems.
tell them to just keep up the hard work.  hopefully it wont be too long before they can reap the benefits and will be tooling around in a huge customized tour bus!!

The band is in Fillmore California taday at The Grounds. On Easter, while on their way to Fillmore, they pulled off the freeway for gas in Hollywood and ran into Charlie from the band Goldfinger. He was cool enough to pose for a picture with my son. Can't wait to see that one! They also saw some actor who's name I can't remember off hand. I am sure some of these photos will get posted on their myspace site soon.

Unbelievable. The van broke down again. Some kind of electrical problem. They were on their way to Texas but broke down in New Mexico. Traffic was stopped and backed up for miles. There were state police everywhere. When the police finally got to the broke down van, they checked who was inside because they were looking for an escaped fugitive of some kind. They finally got towed into the nearest town a few hours later and the van will be looked at later today. Looks like they will miss thier show tonight. On top of it, it looks like severe weather and tornados in that area today. We'll see what happens.

Just talked to my son and the van got fixed fairly quickly. Bad altenator. The band is  on their way to the Austin Texas show tonight. Now all they have to do is avoid the tornados that are forcast in that area for today.

I can vouch for this place as a friend of mine hosts karaoke there every Tuesday night !!!  Too bad I
missed the show but let me know next time they are out here and I'll go...... I live about 20 minutes
from the "Clam" so it's an easy trek for me........

Alucard is at the Sterling Community Center in Sterling Virginia today. They played in Pennsylvania last night and had no one they knew to put them up for the night. Most of the guys from Alucard and the Swellers slept in their vans in a parking lot of a 24 hour Wall Mart last night, but a few of the guys actually slept in the Wall Mart! My son said they just wanted to see if they could get away with it so they went to a deserted part of the store and slept on some shelves with a bunch of empty boxes. The life of young rock and rollers on the road.

Alucard has a local show October 6th, and then Mike will be filling in on guitar and going on tour with a band called A Wilhelm Scream. They will be touring up and down the east coast for a couple weeks in October. After that, there will be more local shows for Alucard.

Looks like Alucard has been put on hold indefinitely. Mike has joined A Wilhelm Scream permanently and is now touring the UK with the band. He called me yesterday to tell me that theyrecorded a couple of songs in the BBC radio studios for broadcast later this week on one of the BBC punk stations. He said he passed through the very rooms where the Beatles did their BBC radio recordings over 40 years ago and that there are pictures all over the place of the Beatles, Stones and a whole bunch of other artists that have recorded for the BBC. Man, I would LOVE to see that!

A Wilhelm Scream at the Magic Stick on April 16th with the Unseen. If you want to get rocked like you won't believe and maybe get your face melted off, come on down that night. Would suggest dinner before hand at the Majestic Cafe or Union Street which are both just steps away from the venue.
