http://www.rockwired.com/CapitalTTimes.jpghis is a re-posting of  the premiere of ROCKWIRED.COM's new podcast series ROCK SHOW back in AUGUST 28, 2017 -
Well kiddies, here you have it! This is the very first edition of our brand new weekly show ROCKWIRED MAGAZINE'S ROCK SHOW. We admit it's not the most inspired title but it gives you an idea  of what to expect with this new weekly program. This latest endeavor by ROCKWIRED MAGAZINE is not much of a new endeavor. It's more of a rebranding of our previous podcast series ROCKWIRED RADIO PROFILES. We feel a title like . Since 2010, ROCKWIRED RADIO PROFILES lasted for over 700 editions and featured music and interviews with various active rock artists such as WAYLAND, BOBAFLEX, ADELITA'S WAY, EDGE OF PARADISE, ANOTHER LOST YEAR, SAINT MOTEL, SHALLOW SIDE, BONZ, ADLER, STAR OFF MACHINE, ZEROKING, A.D.D., EMPERORS AND ELEPHANTS, STATION, ELISIUM, RED TIDE RISING, SILVERTUNG, MAXXXWELL CARLISLE, CITY OF THE WEAK, VAJRA, ELISIUM, MILITIA VOX and  DIAMOND LANE. Now, ROCKWIRED MAGAZINE has decided to scale back with a weekly podcast that still delivers on the music and exclusive interviews but also seeks to entertain it's audience. Isn't rock n roll all about keeping folks entertained?

ROCKWIRED MAGAZINE'S ROCK SHOW is going to be a work in progress. Of course it will be a show about spinning new music from today's leading active rock artists but ROCKWIRED MAGAZINE's Editor-In-Chief BRIAN LUSH promises that there will be some surprises along the way. "Just as we are getting more adventurous with our content in our monthly magazine, we want this new weekly show to be just as exciting." says LUSH. "Given the doubts about rock n roll's prospects these days, we feel it is our duty to make a rock music show that is all about fun and agenda-free. The only agenda here is rock n roll."

The new podcast series will be available every Tuesday exclusively at ROCKWIRED.COM and iTUNES.

A ROCKWIRED favorite has returned with a brand new single and this time it is preceding the release of a brand new album titled RINSE AND REPEAT. For the past five years, WAYLAND have toured the United States many times over and have put out stand alone singles, but now the band has turnd  their attention to a long form release - their first since their debut EP WELCOME TO MY HEAD. THROUGH THE FIRE delivers all of the bombast that we've come to expect form these road dogs and has us excited to hear more form their upcoming album.

Being an American Indian-owned publication, we find it important to highlight new music that is coming out of Indian Country and one such band is UNCOMMON KNOWLEDGE, a metal band hailing from the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. We happened to catch their  electrifying live set at the ALBUQUERQUE CENTER FOR PEACE AND JUSTICE. Not the most rocking venue in the world, but these guys made the space feel like the VIPER ROOM with their hard hitting set. They've managed to take their show on the road beyond the confines of South Dakota and have rocked audiences throughout the American Southwest.

Hailing from Ontario, DISTRICT AVENUE is a band that has seen some changes in line up but also a change in name and perspective. Formerly known as KICKIN' KROTCH, the band, led by singer MIKE BERNARD, made an impression with their gritty hard rock sound. Now that sound has undergone some refinement thanks to producer VIC BRANCO. It can be heard loud and clear on the band's latest album EPOCH, where the lead single REVIVAL stands out proudly thanks apart to their INDIGENOUS MUSIC AWARD winning video.

Twenty-year-olds get a bad rap these days but when you've got a twenty-year-old who boasts a gritty, blues, southern rock sound as HEATHER GILLIS does, we feel it's only fair to give them all of the props that they deserve. Her handiwork on the guitar and lap steel and as a singer was all hard won. This young woman cut her teeth on the road and on the stage with  the late BUTCH TRUCKS as a member of his band THE FREIGHT TRAIN. Now with her days of BUTCH TRUCKS' tutelage bhehind her she stands poised to make a name for herself as an artist on her own rockin' terms.

A New York City-based band boasting on edgy prog rock sound. It's the musicianship that has won us over here at ROCKWIRED MAGAZINE nand their newest album ESCAPING VELOCITY and it's single MASS APPEAL deserve a special kind of recognition. Definitely one of our favorite releases of 2017.

On the heals of an EP and debut album, the band KILLSET is really hitting it hard with their new release STFU. The album boasts the very hard rock that like to give it up for  but there are also some hip hop flourishes. Don't believe us? Just check out their take on the 1992 KRIS KROSS hit JUMP. The video is a fucking hoot.

It's been a while since we've given it up for punchy, punk rock band and KITTEN HEAD delivers. Not only for their raw rocking songcraft but for their intense live set that lets the audience in on the music. Shouldn't a rock music be this way.

When a guy says that it was attending a DEFTONES show that set him on his way to music making, I guess we better listen to him. ANDREW W. BOSS proves that he's a "boss" in every sense of the work with his brand new album INVINCIBLE. That man's rap and metal sensibilities proudly shine through.

Seven years was way too long to wait for a new release from these guys. LIVING COLOUR proved that their music and artistry were all intact with their 2010 album CHAIR IN THE DOORWAY and now they' prove that the influence  of the blues still has a place in the world on their forthcoming album SHADE. Don't think for a minute that these guys have turned the volume down here. Their interpretation of the blues is as loud and rockin' as anything that we've come to expect from these legends.

Hailing from Georgia, LULLWATER is aband that has taken it's musical queues from the music that was coming out of Seattle during the late eighties and early nineties. It should be no surprise that their new EP is a live album recorded in the same studio that PEARL JAM recorded out of. It's also less of surprise that the band has re-recorded PEARL JAM's RELEASE using original PEARL JAM drummer DAVE KRUSEN.

Thanks to the band's victory in ROCKWIRED's ARTIST OF THE MONTH contest, we've been introduced to folks in South American. These Sao Paulo-based rockers are on the verge of making their presence known in the States with what promises to be an electrifying tour and a raw, uncompromising debut album HORIZON.

The Chicago-based rock band has been through an insane amount of changes form being a solo hip-hop artist to an full on rock band. Their newest album seals the band's fate as an electrifying hard rock act destined for greatness and the kind of positive message that will elevate their material above the standard rock fare.
