LIZZY BORDEN – Co-Headlining At Kavarna Rock Festival, July 15th, 2012

Posted in Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, heavy metal festivals, heavy metal news, metal music, Music, rock festivals, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on May 31, 2012 by Metal Odyssey

 The legendary LIZZY BORDEN will be co-headlining at the Kavarna Rock Festival in Kavarna, Bulgaria on July 15th. Stryper will be co-headling on July 14th. The ever legendary Michael Schenker is scheduled for July 13th. Whoa! These three days look like they’re gonna ROCK!

I’m guessed at the spelling of Glen Hughez. Is it supposed to be the iconic Glenn Hughes? Maybe that is how the name is spelled in Bulgaria? Could it be a Glenn Hughes “All-Star” Tribute Band? I just don’t know.

Whoever is going to this very cool festival, have a kick-ass Rockin’ time! Metal be thy name.

Los Angeles, California-based online metal radio station Kosher Metal have crossed over into the realm of concert promotion. The first Kosher Koncert Series event will take place on Saturday, August 4th 2012 at The Vibe in Riverside, CA – located at 1805 University Ave. This event will be all ages with raffle prizes provided in part by Sam Ash Music, Nuclear Blast Records and RH Merch.

Tickets for the event go on sale Saturday, May 12th at 10am PST via TicketLeap at www.koshermetal.ticketleap.com.

The compilation can be downloaded via www.koshermetal.bandcamp.com.

Kosher Metal founder, and on-air personality, Max ‘ManJewky’ Wallis had this to say about the new venture: “It feels good to get back in the promoting game. I worked for a major promoter in the Hollywood area for a couple of years and they were some of the most fun years of my life. It’s all part of the all-encompassing passion that is helping local bands get to the next level, the more I can do the happier I am. Of course, it can be very stressful at times… but there’s nothing like seeing a bunch of people having a good time at an event that you created. ”

It started as a weekly radio program in June 2010 and became a 24 hour operation in April of 2011. Kosher Metal founder and on-air personality, ManJewky, is a graduate of the Music Business Program at Musicians Institute in Hollywood, CA.

“Spread the Metal Records has lofty ambitions for this festival and as it grows each year, I want to prove that the label is as committed to philanthropy as we are to releasing phenomenal records. We take on the responsibility to help those who cannot help themselves, and this festival has the power to help a lot of people, year after year.” – Matt Day STM owner and festival organizer commented.

ABOUT: Spread The Metal Fest was inspired by STM Records owner Matt Day, whom previously worked for HSF as a volunteer and decided it was time to give back to the community and help an organization and cause that promotes awareness of heart disease along with financial support.

ABOUT: Spread the Metal Records is an artist-oriented label. They recognize the commitment of all those who have signed with them and those who continue to support them in other ways. A label is only as strong as its artists, and indeed the job of the record label is to create an environment where they can pursue their artistic vision. That means giving straight answers, holding themselves accountable, taking responsibility for their mistakes, and recognizing their own limitations. STM believes in every release that they put out and they have more respect for the fans than to expose them to a sub-par album. STM demands the best from themselves, and so they can’t accept any less from the bands that they represent.

______________________________________________________

Stone Says: I’ve stated once before, the sincere admiration I have for Matt Day’s charitable kindness through his Spread The Metal Festival and Spread The Metal Records. I also admire each and every band that are giving their time to perform at this fabulous festival; along with the sponsors and anyone else that is involved in making this event happen. This Spread The Metal Fest proves that Metal can make a difference in people’s lives.
