The Blood, Lust, Death concert
was held on March 22 in Reading,
PA. It brought out more than
just the leading bands and fans,
but also the local music scene
and artist of Pennsylvania and
Philadelphia.
Davie Suicide was one of
the leading bands on this tour.
The guitarist Niko Gemini was
pleased to answer some questions.
Niko came to know Davie
through a friend. He had always
been in love with music stemming
from a young age. He grew up in
Russia, and there he went to music
school. Before that his father
introduced him to ACDC making
it his favorite band. This didn’t
stop Niko from listening to his
own genre of music, however. He
got into rap music when he was
younger. His father used to write
words like ‘lame’ over his rap
posters in his room. Nikon moved
to the states, and now tours with
Davie Suicide. He says “Davie
works harder than anyone else.”
For many, one of the biggest
questions of being an artist is,
is it worth it? Niko answers this
by saying, “Ask yourself: ‘what
could you be if money were no
obstacle.’” The money is nice, but
the reward is in playing the music.
It shows in the liveliness of their
performance.
Local artists come to these
shows hoping to promote their
music and to reach out to friends
and other artists. Tox, from
Generation Empty, spoke about
his band and what they are doing
in the upcoming months. They
released their album in August,
and the band will be going on tour
this upcoming May along the east
coast. They started their band in
2007. Throughout the years, the
band went through several band
mates. It took them until 2009 to
settle on a good group of people
that worked well together. The
local metal band is located out
of Philadelphia. They ask this
generation to stand up for what
they believe in and to be true to
themselves. They want people to
question the things they are taught
and to think for themselves.
Generation Empty wasn’t the
only local band in the crowd at
the show. Some members from
the former band Suburban Murder
were there to simply enjoy the
show and talk to the local music
scene. Mikey Rude (Bassist) and
Jeremy Gogolin (Vocalist) were
there enjoying the show. The
band had recently taken a break
to reevaluate their priorities. They
plan to come back to the stage
under a new title, with all new
band mates save for Mikey and
Jeremy. The new name for this
gig will be called Scarlett and the
Degenerates. Jeremy is throwing
away his old band name Jeremy
Murder and trading it in for a
sassy androgynist vocalist that
sets him apart from the rest of
the band. They are aiming to first
pump out an album before going
on tour again. Fans are highly
awaiting Scarlett Massacre and to
see what’s next down the road for
this band.
Bands come together at shows
in so many ways. It’s not simply
the bands you see preforming on
stage that are there. Generation
Empty stood in the crowd hoping
to gain a bigger following as they
handed out their CDs to new time
listeners. Mikey and Jeremy went
to the show just to listen and support
the other bands. There were
many other bands in the crowd at
the show. It’s like a family. They
all come together for one big
event and support each other in
the though music Industry.
