When Jake came in to record his hour of metal I asked him, "what would you call this hour of metal you've got lined up for the QC?".  Cause I'm thinking like death metal, hardcore, screamo, power metal, thrash, speed, metalcore...wasn't sure what to call it.  Jake told me, "I like to just call it Extreme Metal.".  He's not kidding.  Check out his playlist below and listen tonight (6/3) at 6:00 p.m. to have your faces melted.

Now if you want to host your own hour of, whatever kind of metal, rock, or alternative music that you want...then sign up here.  Every Friday at 6:00 p.m. one person will choose their rock (we'll just put them all together in one ball and say rock) and host their own hour.  Get in on it here.

My name is Jake McKee and I love rock and metal because no matter what mood I’m in there is metal or rock for it and it makes me feel alive. Also, my favorite band is probably Gojira, and the best show I’ve ever been to, even though there are many, would have to be the Tool concert we just had.

  1. Gojira- Pray
  2. Corpsegrinder- Acid Vat
  3. Born of Osiris- Echobreather
  4. Archspire- Golden Mouth of Ruin
  5. Baest- Ecclesia
  6. Meshuggah- The Abysmal Eye
  7. Times of Grace- Medusa
  8. Fit for an Autopsy- Two Towers

Quad Cities Live Music Venues That Aren't Live Music Venues Anymore

Nostalgia Alert!.

We've compiled a quick list (by no means comprehensive) of venues in the Quad Cities that are no longer music venues but to us will ALWAYS hold a special place were we saw some great shows and made some incredible memories.

To many of us the live music scene wasn't just a concert here & there. It was an every weekend affair. And it didn't matter if it was a touring band or your buddy's band. We were going to be there with a beer in hand and scream along with guitars that were way too loud in a room that was improperly treated acoustically and make some bad decisions.
