New Year's Eve Vault Party

If you're looking for a New Year's Eve event, check this one out. Words to describe the vision for this night include fun, different, exciting, innovation, geeky, and maybe a tiny bit elegant.
What your night includes:
~A Fallout Cosplay Contest
~Food, drink specials, and game time
~Consoles and PC gaming throughout the bar
~Plenty of dancing
I'll be spinning music throughout the night from the 40's, 50's, and 60's. Big band swing, to rockabilly, and early garage rock. Once midnight arrives, all bets are off and I don't know where I may take the music.

From now until the end of September, you can send in your votes to nominate people in the 3rd Anual Ameripolitan Music Awards. There are plenty of fantastic disc jockeys out there, but I'd like to ask for your vote this year.

I've enjoyed bringing some of the finest in rock 'n' roll music to your ears for the past 11 years and I do it with pure enjoyment. Hell, if I'm not enjoying it, then you probably aren't. From my start in college at Album 88 to a short stint on WREK, then finally finding a home on Garage 71 and EAVradio. I hope I've introduced some of you to new fantastical music and others I've reintroduced you to favorites you've forgotten.

All you need to do is copy and paste the info below and send an email to It's that simple! You can also submit for other categories, which I have listed at the bottom of this post. You don't have to fill out all of them, but if a name or band pops into your mind be sure to include them. Your vote counts!

Ameripolitan DJ: "Reverend" Andy Hawley

Five Questions With Batmobile

This weekend Ink 'n' Iron make their debut in Nashville with a lineup sure to impress. One band we don't see often in the southeast is Dutch band Batmobile. Formed in 1983, the band still performs with the same lineup at festivals and events around the globe. I had an opportunity to ask lead singer, Jeroen Haamers, five questions leading up to this weekend's festival.

Reverend Andy: What do you think lends to the band's long-lasting success and love from fans?
Jeroen Haamers: I think we're the luckiest people on earth, though we have worked and still work hard for it, we don't take anything for granted.

RA: What musicians have you been listening to lately?
JH: For me it's always Elvis, he's number one each and every day. Of course I listen to other artists and bands as well, like Cash (a lot of country now that I think of it), ancient rockabilly and classics like Ramones and Motorhead.

RA: Touring internationally, you've seen rockabilly scenes all over the world. What are the most prominent differences and similarities?
JH: Audiences react differently in every country. In Finland you'll get the most drunk and crazy people ever.....though the Russians are tough to beat in that area too. Japanese audiences are very polite and kind but if you get them going properly, they get mental as well. So there's the similarity, if you beat them hard enough they'll all loose their minds eventually.

RA: Your favorite song to perform live?
JH: Tough one. Whichever makes the people go the most mental that night.

RA: What's it like having played with the same guys for over 30 years?
JH: It was normal for us most of the time, but in hindsight it's pretty damn amazing!

Catch Batmobile performing on the Ink 'n' Iron Gretsch Stage Saturday evening at 5pm.

Check out the flyer for information on this year's show and I'll see you at the Star Bar!
