Independent Dallas label, Hand Drawn Records, debuted this clip today of their roots-rock act, Exit 380’s vinyl packing party underscored by the band’s newest track, “The Love Sleeps.” This foray into “limited edition vinyl” is the band’s first crack at the medium, and we must say, they look to be going after it in a big way!

Sunday night the Gexa Energy Pavilion, proved to be yet another great night for a summer show.  With temperatures in the low 100′s it was it hot, as hot as can be expected for a Texas night, yet the crowd was ready for yet another night of Rock and Roll.  This time around it was KISS, celebrating their 40 Year Anniversary.  Seems like only yesterday, that we first saw KISS walk on stage with their larger than life personas.

This particular evening was no different, in fact the high flying, tongue biting and fire breathing theatrics, have never looked better. It’s hard to describe the rush of energy that their live performance brings, but even more difficult to explain how they’ve kept it going after all these years. Yet somehow night after night, year after year, the machine that is KISS, never disappoints.

The 60 minute set seamed a bit short by KISS standards, but in no way did the crowd seem disappointed.  It’s certainly safe to say that we could go on and on, but enough words.  We’ll let the photos do the talking.
