Skeptica stepped out and went to the RTR concert at Connect Live and caught Whisky Tango and Trainfight as well. All 3 bands put on an excellent show. Props to Ian of RTR for running around the stage with their new wireless setup with a squid hat halfway down his face! We were having too … More Red Tyde Rising/Whisky Tango/Trainfight concert at Connect Live
Another week closer to the Battle of the Bands. Decisions to be made. We had hoped to be adding another guitarist to the band, freeing Sam up to sing the originals, but it was apparently not meant to be. Singer auditions continue with the hope of finding someone who can handle our covers in addition … More Jam Session, 02/11/2018
Our last post was about the new gear the guitarist were sporting, but this post is all about Michael’s spectacular, new Tama kit. This clear concoction of toms, bass, and snare is the same model as drums icons Mike Portnoy (formerly Dream Theater) and Matt Garstka (Animals as Leaders), albeit a smaller version (for now). … More Practice and Michael’s new kit, 02/04/18

The holidays brought some recording gear as well, so we’re getting … More Jam Session with new gear, 01/14/18

The crowd was huge, the view of the stage was usually crummy, and the mosh pit was unnecessary… but the music was incredible and did not disappoint! Zach was missed but every detail was … More Modern Heroes – Animals As Leaders and Periphery concert, 11/14/17
We were asked to headline the Sunday Funday Festival held by Cherokee Music Center back in September when we were having record warm temperatures for this time of year. In fact, up until the day before the festival, it had been unseasonably warm. Why am I telling you this? Because Mother Nature made up … More Headlining at the Sunday Funday Festival, 10/29/17
Hey guys! We had another great night at The Listening Room at Cherokee Music Center’s Open Mic Night. Our set was a bit different this time around. While we opened with a cover, Metallica’s Enter Sandman, after that we played an original tune called When the Smoke Clears. The song in its original version … More Open Mic Night at CMC, 09/22/17
