“Whisky on Beer” Documentary Enters it’s Final Week

Once a staple within the South Florida Hardcore scene, and infamously known for their clinically insane antics, Load lived a punk rock story worth telling. As the South Florida history books will show, tradgedy struck the the band not once, but twice, in the untimely deaths of their guitarist Jeff Tucci, and their charismatic and almost Kurt Cobain-like lead singer, Bobby “Load” Johnston.

But it was the hard & fast life that they lived so recklessly, that the stories created will possibly light up the silver screen... click to read more

And it’s their yet-to-be-released documentary “Whiskey on Beer” that aims to do just that. It’s a crowd-funded affair, with an in-progress campaign that can be found on IndieGoGo.

The campaign, however, has entered it’s final week, and as I write this, they’ve raised approximately $6,680 of the stated $10,500 needed. It’s gonna be a play at the plate, folks!

You can contribute to the “Whiskey on Beer” campaign here:

When I think back of Load antics, I think of the time Bobby jumped off of the stage mid-set while playing to a packed house, opening for The Ramones. He crowd-surfed to the bar, and proceeded to order a drink, while his bandmates attempted to call him back to the mic.

Jeff Tucci, who made the Miami New Times 10 Best Punk Guitarists of All Time list, passed away in November 2014. Aside from his central role in Load, Tucci also had stints in Jack Off Jill and Middle Finger Mob. It would give justice and redemption to have this documentary made, in memory of both Bobby Johnston and Jeff as well.

They would toast themselves, and us down here as well, from Heaven, knowing that their Punk Rock Tale will told to the masses, once and for all…

When In This Moment first came across the Urban Warrior radar, it was with their raucous remake of Blondie’s classic “Call Me”. The first thing that jumped out and grabbed me, by the balls, I should add, was Maria Brink’s Uber-Intense and emotion riddled vocal delivery… CLICK HERE TO READ MORE

Fast forward to December 2013, when Maria & crew drops “Whore”, the 3rd single off of their 4th studio album, “Blood”. Clearly, they have been sharpening their chops into the sharpest of knives…


Radio-Boxer – The Anti-Hero of South Florida Rock ‘n’ Roll

The first thing that hits you when you witness a Radioboxer live show is the unparalleled display of energy. Led by the uber-charismatic Vanne Dazza, a fireball of a front woman who could be described as one part Siouxsie Sioux, one part Gwen Stefani, one part Joey Ramone, Radioboxer belt out what they like to call “Bipolar Power Pop”.

With a strong emphasis on the word POWER…
