There are many stories about how and where Renegade formed. One has the group forming in the 1960's and recording an early version of "Born to be Wild," later covered by Steppenwolf. Another, has the group forming to play a talent show at Cherry Hill West High in the late 1990s. But there is no debate over why the group formed. To rock
your balls off. Oh, you don't have balls? Right. Because Renegade rocked them off.
Since the band's last show at Johnny Brenda's on July 4,2008, the members of Renegade: Brian Adoff (Punk Rock Boot Camp/Drunken Heckler of Screen Legend Robert Duvall) Dave Adoff (Hey Angel) Richie Roxas (Pet Milk/Hail Social) Matt Maraldo (Hail Social) Dan Gross (Philadelphia Daily News/None More Black) and Jeff Ziga (Affirmative Action Jackson/Little Baby's Ice Cream), have had barely a day go by
where someone doesn't come up to them and ask when is the next Renegade show, much like how musicians from The Smiths or Led Zeppelin are inevitably asked about reunions whenever they are interviewed.
Having finally decided to take mercy on the masses and grant the public one more show, Renegade, whose countless hits have gone on to be covered by the likes of Quiet Riot, Simple Minds, INXS, Kim Wilde, Guns N' Roses, Billy Idol, and many more, will perform their farewell concert December 22, 2012 at Johnny Brenda's. But wait, wouldn't Wembley Stadium, or even Citizens Bank Park be a more appropriate
venue for such a monumental rock concert? Yes, conceivably. But they don't offer as many drink tickets as JB's so that is where Renegade will fittingly call it quits after nearly 50 years. Or 20 years. Depends on who you ask.
Singer, songwriter and guitarist Angela Everwood is a rising star in the country music scene. Her album I'll Be Thinking Of You was recorded with some of the best talent in Nashville, including chart-topping producer Tom Paden (George Strait, Faith Hill) and Academy of Country Music Award winner Judy Rodman. Angela recently debuted music from the project at Suquehanna Bank Center, where she performed for the 92.5 XTU Anniversary Show, one of the largest country music festivals in the nation, alongside multi-platinum acts like Miranda Lambert.
The Gang Age
It's May in Philadelphia and already the humid sweat drips on dirty basement tile floors and orange Broad Street subway lines rumble the snares, 20Hz if you dare. In this heat, the highest virtue is exhaled chromatic air lit with the dust of Fiona Apple and Cat Power streaming from below the pavement. This is The Gang Age.
