Adam Krier of AM Taxi

August 5, 2010 by  
Filed under Interviews

It’s old-school punk meets modern pop on Chicago-native AM Taxi’s debut CD, We Don’t Stand A Chance. Despite the self-deprecating album title, AM Taxi (Adam Krier on vocals and guitar, Jason Schultejann on bass, Chris Smith on drums, John Schmitt on guitar and Luke Schmitt on keyboards) has been enjoying a run on the Skull Candy stage of this year’s steamy Vans Warped Tour. 

Somewhere between the daily performances, autograph signings, meet & greets, charity bowling events, interviews, a rooftop performance in New York on their “day off,” and trying to keep their bus operational, frontman Adam Krier sat down with TWRY to talk about the album, the tour, the video shoot for their single, “Fed Up,” and his master plan to incite sibling rivalry between his bandmates for amusement!

The Smashing Pumpkins Announce Benefit Concert For Matthew Leone

July 20, 2010 by  
Filed under Daily Music News

Last month we brought you the sad news about Madina Lake bassist Matthew Leone.  Since then, the music community has come together to show their support and now The Smashing Pumpkins have announced that they will perform a benefit concert next Tuesday, July 27 at Chicago’s Metro to raise money for medical care for Matthew.  

If you missed the details about Matthew Leone,  he was hospitalized with severe brain trauma after intervening to stop a woman he passed on the street from being beaten by her husband.  Matthew had left twin brother Nathan’s Chicago apartment to meet a friend at a bar a few blocks away when he walked past the man beating his wife on the 1300th block of Ohio St. Even though the attacker was twice his size, Matthew immediately intervened and managed to subdue the attacker but as he waited for police to arrive, the attacker suddenly turned on Matthew, beating him severely.  He then walked away with his wife, leaving Matthew unconscious on the street.  Matthew was taken to UIC Hospital for emergency brain surgery wherein a third of his skull was removed to alleviate swelling.  He’s currently in stable condition awaiting an additional brain surgery to reapply the removed portion of his skull.  Alleged suspect Justin Pivec is currently charged with Aggravated Battery Causing Serious Bodily Harm and out on bail pending a forthcoming hearing.  As a musician, Matthew spends most of his life on tour and unfortunately his medical insurance had lapsed just two months prior to the incident.   Friends of the band and the Chicago music community are rallying to help provide for Matthew’s medical needs.

There will be a raffle for tickets for the benefit show.  Individuals can enter the raffle as many times as they wish for $10 each entry.  A majority of the venue will be sold to raffle winners.  Each winner will receive two tickets to the concert.  Tickets are not transferable and winners must show ID matching their raffle entry.  Raffle tickets will be available for sale through Metro website only beginning Wednesday July 21 at noon at http://www.metrochicago.com.  The raffle will end at 2pm on Saturday July 24, 2010, and winners will be notified via email at 5pm on Saturday July 24, 2010.  http://www.metrochicago.com.
 
All proceeds from the raffle and concert will go to the Matthew Leone Fund at Sweet Relief. Sweet Relief Musicians Fund is a non profit 501(c)(3) organization provides financial assistance to all types of career musicians who are struggling to make ends meet while facing illness, disability, or age-related problems.  For more information on Sweet Relief, visit

There will also be a very limited amount of balcony VIP tickets put on sale for those fans who want to make a larger donation and ensure entry into this special event for $100 each. Balcony VIP tickets will go on sale Wednesday July 21 at noon.
 
Additionally, a limited amount of soundcheck VIP tickets will be available for $500 each.  The soundcheck VIP event (approximately 30 minutes), set for the late afternoon, includes a meet and greet/photo with the Pumpkins and merchandise items, plus a seat at a table in the balcony for the show; this package is priced at $500 per person.  Soundcheck VIP tickets will be available Wednesday July 21 at noon at
