VNUE will be recording the upcoming West Coast run from veteran American hard rockers King’s X and making the shows available for download instantly via VNUE’s set.fm app, web site, and at each show with all new Limited Edition VIP laminates. The dates being recorded begin April 19 in Scottsdale, Arizona and run through April 29 in San Juan Capistrano, CA.
“King’s X has been a special band to me since their debut, Out Of The Silent Planet, and the incredibly unique experience of their live show is a major part of that,” Jeff Zakim, VP of Business Development & Content Curation for VNUE, said. “Between the amazing audience participation, the inventiveness of their songs and the sheer energy exuded from the stage, a King’s X live show is truly something special, and I can say with confidence that each attendee of these upcoming shows will want to take it home with them.”
VNUE will be recording the upcoming U.K. run from the roots, blues and soul-infused act The White Buffalo, a.k.a. songwriter Jake Smith, and making them available for download instantly via VNUE’s set.fm mobile content delivery app and website. The U.K. dates being recorded begin April 15 in Manchester and run through April 21 in London.
“I’m excited to have fans hear the stripped down ferocity and emotion of the live show,” Smith said. “We are an anomaly in today’s music scene by performing raw, with no bullshit, no smoke and mirrors, no effects, no backing tracks, no click tracks, and no loops. We are simply three guys, playing our respective instruments with our hearts and our sweat. Each night comes with its own set of unique mistakes and triumphs. I do feel a bit exposed by recording and releasing these rough mixes but, it is what it is, and that’s been my ethos all along. Keep it honest and real.”
