SXM Liquid Metal HIXONFEST Promo!

Yesterday we made history! When we started Horns Up Rocks one of our goals was to help promote the Heavy Music scene wholeheartedly. In order to do this, we have been building rock solid relations with bands, fans and the media. We believe that the only way to reinvent the scene and relay the bricks made of steel, is by standing strong together as one.

Some may say we cover some bands that nobody knows about, but we know what our role is and we will never back-out from our mission. When we heard the Sirius XM Liquid Metal crew plug the upcoming Hixonfest on satellite radio yesterday, we felt the impact of what we have accomplished thus far. Rest assure that we are keeping the underground strong for years to come! As Phil Anselmo (Pantera, Down, Superjoint Ritual & Arson Anthem) says: "The pulse of Heavy Metal lives in the underground scene!"'

This is why we are presenting to you! HIXONFEST 2010! HERE IS THE SIRIUS XM LIQUID METAL HIXONFEST PROMO! Voiced by Kara Pain for the "Metal News Blitz" segment! Tune in daily to LIQUID METAL!

Horns Up Rocks and Jefferson Avenue Productions = partners in musical crime! On Friday August 27th, you have a metallic appointment with us at Ace of Clubs here in New York City. We are stoked to present the 2010 Hixonfest! Hosted by Richard Christy and featuring live performances by:

The Hixon: The Hixon are proof that if you persevere as a band, and never compromise your musical ideals, you can rise up to the occasion and make some ears bleed! This is why they recently opened for Charred Walls of the Damned in New York City and Philadelphia.

Judas Priestess: Judas Priestess is an all girl Judas Priest tribute band from New York, formed in July 2009. Their particular Halford is MilitiA, who has performed as a lead singer with Dee Snider’s heavy metal orchestra Van Helsing’s Curse, and in other musicals as Sins of a Scarecrow or Jesus Christ Superstar.

Canons: The work ethic and attitude of this band is what Horns Up Rocks and Jefferson Avenue Productions stands for. A DIY band who's main goal is to play as many shows as possible and have a great fucking time doing it. New album recorded and getting ready for release, Canons will have you banging your head til your mother fucking neck breaks!

Lies Beneath: A five-piece metal band with influences ranging from thrash, to death-metal and hardcore. With classic dual-guitar attack, a crushing rhythm section, dynamic vocals and brooding soundscapes, this band creates an undeniable presence and demands captivation from any audience.

Sealed With a Kiss: Soooo, these three bags of douche named: Sydney Rifle, Drew Adler, and Steve Rascal all met at a brothel somewhere down in Brooklyn, now they play really good music. Their favorite things in the world are: 40's and cigarettes.

As we mentioned before, we have Richard Christy from the Howard Stern Show and Charred Walls of the Damned hosting the event for the 3rd year in a row! Additionally, Frankie Scorpion from the Gypsy Queens will be hosting the Crown Ink Divas model search. We will also have girls dancing on strip poles, plenty of drinks and we are raffling 2 tickets for the Slayer take over on October 8th at Nassau Coliseum. Do you really need any more reasons to come to Ace of Clubs on Friday August 27th?

Sugar and Spikes Fashion Show

A few weeks ago we met a real nice group of beautiful women at Don Hill's here in New York City. Not only are they classy and very sexy, they also have a similar mission then the one of Horns Up Rocks. That mission? To bring the New York City underground music and fashion scenes back into what they used to be. Sugar and Spikes is their name:

"SUGAR and SPIKES is a promotional modeling company that handles everything from promotions & marketing to booking venues for rock bands/live shows/events/parties. We are fearless rock inspired women whose main goal is to provide a reliable and professional service to the music community."

On July 19th Horns Up Rocks suggests for all the horns up throwers to come to the Knitting Factory in Brooklyn for the Sugar and Spikes fashion show. The event not only features stunning women dancing the night away, but also live performances by Panzie, TSI and Hate in the Box. There will also be a DJ set by the awesome JennCity! Not convinced yet? Well, check this interview we did with Mika Henderson (CEO) and Miz Katastrophe (Spokes-model).

From Bliss to Devastation: Reinventing the Youth

A few months ago we met From Bliss to Devastation at The Gramercy theater in New York City, right after they opened for Hardcore legends Earth Crisis. That day we interviewed the entire band, and it was obvious that they were very serious about their musical craft. Fast forward to July 24th, were they performed at the "No Mercy Metal Showcase". This time we where not backstage, this time we interviewed the band right in front of a Firehouse. With From Bliss to Devastation you never know when things will catch fire, this guys have enough fury to pass around all over the world. Here are the consequences of going From Bliss to Devastation.
