Night’s Edge – Edge of the World 3QS015

Night's EdgeThree questions for Brian Haran – Episode 015

  • If a band from SWPA was doing a mini-tour and would be coming through Baltimore, what advice would you give them?
  • If there is an apocalyptic event and only one Night’s Edge song will survive along with a handful of people, which song do you think should survive and why?
  • If you could pick any of the big tours you want to be on, which one would you pick to be on and why? – asked by Lou Lombardi on Episode 014

The Song: Edge of the World

Edge of the World is the second single from our debut album “Shades of Dusk” and is a good representation of the diverse sound that Night’s Edge brings. It’s a mix of chugging metal, gothic keys, and dancy drums that creates a very distinct atmosphere that is the band’s own.
Band biography If you threw a banger in a haunted house, NIGHT’S EDGE would be your entertainment for the evening. Gothic yet fun, the band combines 80’s arena rock with dance grooves and a punk attitude. NIGHT’S EDGE doesn’t sound like anybody else.

About Night’s Edge

Band Location: Baltimore, MD USA
Band Genre: Alternative Metal

NIGHT’S EDGE doesn’t look like anybody else either. The band performs covered in fluorescent glowing paint, adding a psychedelic, cyber-punk aesthetic to an already explosive live show. NIGHT’S EDGE owns the stage and the crowd’s attention.

“Shades of Dusk”, the debut album from NIGHT’S EDGE dropped on June 29, 2019. With songs ranging from horror-punk anthems to radio-ready dance tunes to dramatic gothic waltzes, the genre-spanning album is the band’s statement to the world that Night’s Edge is something completely different, and something really, really good.

Listen to the album. Dive into the aesthetic. Learn the words, come out to a show and —

Lou Lombardi – Where Have All The Acid Queens Gone 3QS014

Three questions for Lou Lombardi – Episode 014

  • Some of my listeners may know you as the host of The Loudini Rock & Roll Circus Podcast, can you tell us about how the show came about and how it affects you personally as a musician? (Joann Quinn Smith’s Positively Pittsburgh Live!)
  • If you could go back in time and spend 1 year following any band around without changing history, which band would you follow and why?
  • I really like it when people talk about their live show memories because I feel like the craziest stuff happens. So I wanted to know, what’s a really great live show memory that you have? – asked by Marina of Echoheart in Episode 013

The Song: Where Have All The Acid Queens Gone?

Where Have All The Acid Queens Gone is a song about the days of psychedelic exploration. I wrote it to commemorate that era and also to say that we have lost something. There are some fun Easter Eggs in the song with references like “our merry prankster friends” and “electric cherry Koolaid”. The protagonist is singing to a girl, presumably one of the acid queens. While Tina Turner played the Acid Queen in the film version of Tommy, it’s also a reference to some of the other ladies who rocked that late sixties/ early seventies era; like Grace Slick, Mama Cass, and of course the great Janice Joplin.

Musically, the song is straight up hard rock with a singable catchy chorus. The guitar solo has this slightly out of time feel which we intentionally did as a way of showing how out of touch the world is today with that era of mental exploration.

About Lou Lombardi

Band Location: Pittsburgh, PA USA
Band Genre: Hard Rock

When a teenage Trekker from a devout Christian upbringing realized that he couldn’t join the crew of the Enterprise, he did the next best thing; he picked up a guitar, traded his Larry Norman praise music for ‘real’ rock n’ roll and never looked back.

Lou ‘Loudini’ Lombardi has been rocking the Pittsburgh PA area and beyond for over 20 years with his high octane brand of classic hard rock, as a solo artist, with his band Strangelove and as a freelance songwriter and session player for acts including Carly Simon and Billy Joel collaborator Pete Hewlett.

He is the host of the Loudini Rock And Roll Circus podcast, broadcasting weekly to a global audience and has conducted extended interviews with a wide roster of musicians, including recent chats with Alice Cooper guitarist Nita Strauss and Nancy Wilson of Heart. And even if he never did fly to the stars, he came close when he opened for KISS’s space-ace Ace Frehley.
