Here we go again, The Knitting Factory Concert House Reno rocks downtown Reno. This time with Buckcherry, Lit, Reno locals, Seasons of Insanity and added at the last minute, Cherry Bomb, an all female rock band from L.A. made up of 14 to 17 year olds.
Attendance was very good for this show, with Street Vibrations, George Thorogood and Reno’s own 7 Seconds all in town, the knit still managed to sell over 800 tickets to the show. You gotta love Reno.
Buckcherry is an American rock band from Los Angeles, California formed in 1995. The band released two albums, Buckcherry (1999) and Time Bomb (2001), before partially dissolving in the summer of 2002. In 2005, lead vocalist Josh Todd and lead guitarist Keith Nelson reformed Buckcherry and released a new album on April 16, 2006, 15. It contained Buckcherry’s biggest crossover hits to date, “Crazy Bitch”, and their first Billboard Hot 100 top ten hit, “Sorry”. Their fourth album, Black Butterfly, was released in September 2008, and their fifth album, All Night Long, was released on August 3, 2010. They are currently writing a sixth album, which is due for release in 2012. (wiki)
The current line-up still stands with, Josh Todd – (lead vocals), Keith Nelson – (lead and rhythm guitar, backing vocals), Stevie D. – (rhythm and lead guitar, backing vocals), Jimmy “Two Fingers” Ashhurst – (bass guitar, backing vocals) and Xavier Muriel – (drums, percussion).
Buckcherry’s set lasted around 90 minutes and went something like this,
“Ridin'”, “Rescue Me”, “All Night Long”, “Broken Glass”, “Everything”, “Sorry”, “It’s A Party”, “Next 2 You”, “Lit Up”, “Slamin'”, “Dead Again”, “Check Your Head” and their #1 hit “Crazy Bitch”.
The fans rocked the entire set, Buckcherry never seems to disappoint.
All four bands rocked the house, a great time was had by all.
