About This Event

Doors 7pm

Once upon a time, CKY burned it all down, with a raucous, anarchic, hard rock sound soaked in the skate-punk culture that birthed them and a hard-partying lifestyle onstage and off that decimated relationships and reputations in its wake.

Chad I Ginsburg, the band’s guitarist and singer, steps into the frontman role with charisma, charm, and bravado, confidently delivering a diverse performance as he claims a position that was clearly rightfully his to own.

He’s joined in enduring partnership and musical and personal chemistry by fellow CKY cofounder, Jess Margera, the drummer whose extracurricular work in projects like The Company Band (with guys from Clutch and Fireball Ministry) expanded CKY’s horizons as much as Ginsburg’s solo work has as well.

Guns N’ Roses, Metallica, and Deftones have all personally invited CKY on tour, cementing a legacy as a hard-charging live act. CKY built a worldwide fanbase of dedicated acolytes, friends, and supporters, lovingly dubbed the CKY Alliance, with a broader group of musicians, athletes, and other creative types in the CKY family, both literally and figuratively.

Carver City (2009) debuted at #4 on the Hard Music charts. It was the second CKY album to debut in the Top 50 on the Billboard 200: An Answer Can Be Found (2005) hit #35 upon its release. But if anything, The Phoenix is a spiritual successor to CKY’s breakthrough, Infiltrate•Destroy•Rebuild (2002), with a hint of the appropriately titled debut, Volume 1 (1999).

“We’re grown adults now with an eagle-eye perspective on who we are, what we do, and how to do it right,” Ginsburg declares, with matter-of-fact certainty. “None of us are out there in the clouds. We’re pretty well-grounded people that have an honest perspective on where we’re at.”

The totality of the CKY experience is perhaps best summarized by a quote from enigmatic comic book legend, author, and self-proclaimed magician, Alan Moore. “My experience of life is that it is is not divided up into genres; it’s a horrifying, romantic, tragic, comical, science-fiction cowboy detective novel. You know, with a bit of pornography if you’re lucky.”

Margera observes that it was “a perfect storm of events” that led to CKY becoming a pretty popular name. “When it’s happening, you’re not paying attention. But once you get a couple of years under your belt, you realize, ‘Holy shit, man. That was lucky as hell that happened to us!’, ya’ know?”

“We’re feeling rather lucky,” Ginsburg agrees. “We’re not taking things for granted. We’re saturated in gratitude. It’s an incredibly humbled CKY, with a fire to last another twenty years. The point is to go play rock n’ roll and appreciate everybody else who does it, too. It’s a lucky job to have.”


Guitars plugged in, smokes lit, beers poured, and amps cranked without apology, Crobot conjure up the kind of rock ‘n’ roll you sing along to—loud. For as much as it may seem like a lost art, the Pennsylvania- bred band still dole out head-nodding riffs, bold grooves, and hooks high enough to shake the heavens.

After piling on tens of millions of streams, logging countless shows, and earning acclaim from the likes of Classic Rock Magazine, Loudwire, Guitar World, and more, the group—Brandon Yeagley [vocals], Chris Bishop [guitar], Tim Peugh [bass], and Dan Ryan [drums]—realize their vision like never before on their fifth full-length offering, Feel This [Mascot Records].

“This is the record we’ve been wanting to do ever since we started the band,” exclaims Brandon. “It’s the vibe of everyone in a room creating together. It felt like we were working on a real album. Records like that are hard to come by nowadays, but we made one.”

“There are a lot of classic flavors,” notes Chris. “It’s cohesive though. We were able to use all of these ingredients and still make it sound like Crobot.”

They’ve grinded tirelessly to reach this point. The boys made waves with Legend of the Spaceborne Killer [2012], Something Supernatural [2014], and Welcome To Fat City [2016]. However, Motherbrain [2019] represented a high watermark. “Low Life” racked up 12.7 million Spotify streams, while Classic Rock rated the album “4-out-of-5 stars” and proclaimed, “Motherbrain is Crobot coming of age.” They crisscrossed the country with everyone from Anthrax and Black Label Society to Chevelle, Clutch, and The Sword. Not to mention, they lit up the bills of festivals and the annual Shiprocked! cruise. As the Global Pandemic descended upon the world, Chris and Dan hunkered down in Austin to jam and cut demos, sending ideas to Brandon back in Pennsylvania.

2021 saw the boys enter Orb Studios in Austin with producer Jay Ruston [Stone Sour, Anthrax, Steel Panther]. Rather than track all of the instruments separately, they completed one song at a time. “Usually, you record all of the drums, then all of the bass, all of the vocals, and so on and so forth,” says Dan. “We didn’t do it that way this time. We focused on one song, brought it to life, and moved on. It’s just us in a room. We took what we do on stage and captured it as best as we could in the studio. It’s a true rock record.”

Songs like “Holy Ghost” embody this spirit. As a warbling harmony wraps around the wah-drenched guitar straight out of Seattle, Brandon’s grunge-y wail rings out on the hook, “I am not the holy ghost. I won’t ever save your soul.”

“It came together pretty quickly,” recalls Bishop. “We inserted those big Crobot riffs with lots of energy, and we couldn’t be happier.”

Elsewhere, “Golden” hinges on a thunderous beat as it slips into a soaring homage to a god-gone-too- soon.

“When it came to the lyrics, we collectively wanted it to be a tribute to Chris Cornell,” says Brandon. “We’re so influenced by everything he and Soundgarden have done. We ran with the song in honor of his legacy.”

Evocative piano sets the tone for the epic “Set You Free,” which spirals towards a seismic crescendo and emotionally charged guitar lead from Bishop. Then, there’s “Dance With The Dead.” Over a head- nodding groove, the song struts towards a handclap-laden bridge, high-register harmonies, and a cheeky and chantable hook, “Let’s go dance with the dead. They know how to kill it!”

“From there, it snowballed into being about something worth fighting for or dying for,” Brandon elaborates. “No matter what’s going on, we might as well have a good time and dance the night away.” “Into The Fire” trudges through the flames and right into an incendiary and infectious chorus, while “Electrified” kickstarts the album as a rip-roaring and raucous livewire anthem with reverence for “rock ‘n’ roll bull shit like electricity,” laughs Bishop.

“I’m not super into motorcycles, or else it would’ve been about a motorcycle,” grins Brandon. In the end, you’ll feel rock ‘n’ roll come to life in Crobot’s hands.

“We never want to make the same album twice,” Brandon leaves off. “There is something for every Crobot fan out there as well as newcomers. At the same time, we’re having fun. We took the history book of rock and injected it into the process with the energy and lyrical content. We want to be taken seriously, but not too seriously—because this is monkey hour after all. Like we said, it’s rock ‘n’ roll bullshit.”

“That’s the fucking line right there,” agrees Bishop. “We want you to walk away smiling. If I can make you smile, I’ve done my job.”


In 2016 ’Chase the Comet’ members, frontwoman Nika Comet and guitarist Alexander Mishustov hopped on a flight from Moscow, Russia to Los Angeles, CA, and experienced eye-opening inspiration. Leaving behind the band that had brought them great success in their home country, they decided to follow their dreams and ‘deliver their music to the whole world.’

They started their first band 'The Sun' when they were in high school. After taking part in a TV-project like 'American Idol', releasing 2 full-length albums, first under the name 'The Sun' and then 'MyRockBand', playing at almost all biggest rock-festivals in Russia they realized they were ready for a more serious challenge.

By that time vocalist Nika Comet had an impressive resume providing backing vocals for one of the most popular Russian rock-bands ‘TARAKANY!’ and guitarist Alexander Mishustov had shared huge stages opening for the likes of ‘Metallica’, ‘Linkin Park’, ‘Muse’ and ‘Incubus’, just to name a few.

It was time for them to move on and focus on their own music.

In the United States, Nika and Alex began playing in legendary Los Angeles venues such as ‘Whisky a Go-Go’ (opening up for Michale Graves (ex-MISFITS) and Joe Lynn Turner (Deep Purple, Rainbow), ’Viper Room’, ‘Loaded’, ‘Musicians Institute’, ’Skinny’s Lounge’ and events such as ‘Tattoo Expo’ at Pomona Fairplex.

They changed their band name to Chase the Comet (joking: 'Third time's the charm') and at the end of 2017 released their first English EP 'This is MyRockBand' consisting of MyRockBand's (old band name) English songs.

In February, 2018 Chase the Comet released their first full-length English album ’Rush’n’Rule’ crowdfunded by a constantly growing international online following. The album genre could be determined as female-fronted alternative rock.

The band went on a few national tours playing shows in more than 7 states and 20 cities on the West Coast and South West of the US in 2018.

In 2019 they set out to record a new album 'Out of the Matrix' that came out in December, 2019 and contained a prophetic bonus track '2020', released as a single on January, 1, 2020.

Before the lockdown, the band collaborated with 'Infected Rain' frontwoman Lena Scissorhands on the t.A.T.u.-cover 'All The Things She Said' released on February, 14 2020 on Napalm Records. It has gained over 1 M views on YouTube and has become Chase the Comet's first label release.

After finally receiving their O-1 visa for people with extraordinary abilities, Nika and Alex are now expecting to sign an investment contract while working on a new album and staying in touch with their FANmily on social media.
