Skyfox lands Hot Topic distro deal

Here's the press release from Crappy Records:


Denver, CO: (August 19, 2010) – Colorado’s most wildly popular pop punk group Skyfox have secured a deal to have their latest CD the Twilight EP distributed over a five state region including Texas, New Mexico, Montana, Wyoming, and Colorado. This distribution deal involves 22 Hot Topic locations and the demand is expected to be high due to Skyfox’s amazing surge in popularity with the Hot Topic crowd and the ever growing demand for everything Skyfox at their concerts.

The Twilight EP contains the big Colorado hits “Run Away”, “Twilight” and “Punk Rawk Gentleman”. The critically acclaimed Twilight EP was released by Jaret Reddick of Bowling for Soup fame on his label Crappy Records. Crappy Records, despite the humorous name, is dedicated to discovering the next big superstars in the pop punk genre and Skyfox definitely fits those shoes. Packing out show after show, Skyfox has the potential to join the successful ranks of 3OH!3 and The Flobots, who are also from the Centennial State.

Skyfox has participated in several successful in-store Hot Topic concerts all over the Rocky Mountain region this summer including many of the popular “Local Static” events as well as the “SHOPTILYOUROCK” new music showcases which is a Hot Topic fan favorite.

Johnny Hill, lead singer and guitarist for Skyfox, had this to say, “SKYFOX is super excited to have the Twilight EP in Hot Topic stores! It's surreal to be able to walk into Hot Topic and see our disk next to bands like Green Day and AFI!”

“Our teams and customers at Hot Topic are super stoked to have the Skyfox cd available in our stores,”.Hot Topic’s Elsa Kline.

If you live in one of the five lucky states that are getting the Twilight EP check out your local Hot Topic and pick up the disc. If you live outside of the current distribution area just request Skyfox from your local Hot Topic or go online and snag it up from all the usual places.

GREEN DAY & A.F.I. : Perform at Comfort Dental Amphitheater, 8-28-10 photos

One really Cool event I remember from this show was when Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day brought a fan on stage to sing with him. The Fan was a young guy that sang and rocked out just as hard as the band did...then he jumped into the waiting arms of the front rows! He then proceeded to surf right back to his spot in the crowd!










I only saw the a few songs of the show so if you were there till the end and wanted to

share you experiences Please do so in the comments field or write to me!

Where to be Saturday at 7 p.m.

See The Outfit -- outdoors

Parker Library’s Live Local Music Series presents The Outfit -- outdoors on our south lawn -- at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 28.

Bring the family and a picnic blanket or chairs.

The event is FREE. No registration required.

The Outfit was nominated for best Lo-Fi/Garage Rock band in the Westword Music Showcase. Their song "What Happened to You" has been played on KTCL 93.3's esteemed Locals Only show.

The Outfit consists of five Coloradans with a raw and energetic sound. They play the songs they love, hoping to impart the wild joy they take in their music.

"[B]ecause The Outfit seems to be taking Rock itself to new levels here with the guys’ conspicuous energy and overt passion, I’m convinced they will get some attention. They seem destined for greatness if the masses have any taste left, and, as we have seen, they do at times. The guitar work is amazing -- so is the drummer. The instrumentation throughout is raw but complex and even smooth in all its roughness. As a great guy from Vices I Admire once said, a band can’t go anywhere without a talented singer. A great singer Johnston is, so they’ve got that going on, too. You’ll enjoy this CD if you love Rock with a little post-Punk flavoring. As mother always said: Good things do come in small packages. This EP is ultra-effective that way. It leaves you wanting more." -- Colorado Music Buzz

Get Your LAFF On -- RiffTrax LIVE This Thursday

While admittedly having only the most tenuous relationship to the music biz, fans of Mystery Science Theater 3000 can see some of their favorite characters perform live-on-screen this Thursday (August 19), beginning at 6:00 p.m. MDT. Michael J. Nelson ("Mike"), Kevin Murphy ("Tom Servo") and Bill Corbett ("Crow T. Robot") reprise their MST3K roles as members of the RiffTrax team, providing witty commentary while watching D-Level movies.

Thanks to Fathom Events, the Denver-area media company that also distributes "The Met in HD" opera cinecasts, fifteen (!!) movie theater complexes along the Front Range will show the RiffTrax crew performing live to the cult movie classic, "Reefer Madness." Check here to find a location near you.

In addition to what will undoubtedly be hilarious, esoteric repartee riffed against one of the most bizarre films ever made, attendees will also be treated to the RiffTrax team's take on three short-subject films. If you're familiar with such classic MST3K bits as "Uncle Jim's Dairy Farm" or "A Day at the Fair," you'll know exactly what to expect.

In addition to this live presentation, there will be a re-broadcast of the entire show on August 24.

Rock 'n Roll: It's in the Bag baby!...

Many of you are stoked for the Festival this weekend. Planning out the exact route that you will take to navigate step by step, from stage to stage, with the timing and precision of a GPS tracking unit to check out your favorite bands Some of you may have been talking amongst your friends to find out who will drive each day, or maybe your even tossing up whether you run, ride, or carpool. There is one thing for sure Mile High Music Festival is the place to be.

The Mile High Music festival is a weekend of camping in Rock ‘n Roll. There may not be lions, tigers and bears… but you still have to consider the conditions that Mother Nature can toss in your way. You could be spending all day and late into the evening enjoying the surroundings without concerns or you could be the person trying to mentally pull down the sun under the horizon because your skin has become barbecue.

At this juncture please refer to the Mile High Music Festival website for it has very informative listings of items and behaviors that are cool for the festival and those things that will cause difficulties for your weekend like prohibited items and activities that make you look like an arse. Nobody wants to be... "That Guy" who becomes the talk of the town for the week following the show!

I have come across a lot of good ideas on this website. Let me tell you, I sure know what it’s like to forget one important item that I know is sitting on the kitchen table at home. I would like to present a few ideas of how I would pack my day bag to help me survive in the wild of Mile High Music Festival.

Stay hydrated! Whether you use an empty bladder or water bottle that can be filled on site, remember that you will be in the sun at the Awesome Dick’s Sporting Goods Park which may have some shelter, but it’s not likely you’re going to find too many large trees that will provide shade on the grounds of a soccer stadium.

Here are things I recommend you do not want to leave on your kitchen table: tickets, I.D, sun block, hat, sunglasses, binoculars (to help you see that perfect guitar strum from the grass). Don't forget to bring your needed prescription medications (labeled with your ID), bug spray (remember some of those same small critters that you see in the woods may be there too), and earplugs for when you make it right up next to the stage that you want to see your favorite festival band (Monday will be a tough day at work with the ringing in your ears). A small soft sided cooler with ice and food to supply a nice snack. Keep in mind that there will be plenty of food & beverage options once you are in the show. For those of you who enjoy snapping photos or texting your friends, be sure to bring plenty of batteries for your electronics needs. The Colorado summer weather can be unpredictable, A blanket or small collapsible lawn chair will help to sprawl out and get some 5280 sun in addition a jacket or a poncho will help to keep you dry if the clouds set in.

No matter what items you decide are important for your music camping bag. Most important thing is to put thought into what you will need. Focus on your health and well being vs. extravagant creature comforts that may only add extra weight and limit your dancing abilities: but, if you can’t absolutely make it through the day with out your Frisbee then go ahead and stuff it in the pack too!

Be respectful of the people who work and volunteer at M.H.M.F. They are The Department of Festival Wildlife and Rock‘n Roll Rangers who are there to ensure your safety and comfort. Enjoy yourself and have a lot of fun. This is not a short sprint but a Rock‘n Roll camping trip with a full weekend of Mile High concert scenery and action. Pace yourself for two days of awesome audio/ visual over-load, also don’t forget your well-prepared bag will help make certain your days are the absolute best they can be.
