WE REGRET TO REPORT THAT BLACK CAT ENTERTAINMENT / PROMOTER RICH VREEDE REGULARLY STIFFS BANDS AND INVESTORS. WE DID NOT REALIZE THIS AT THE TIME WE COVERED THIS EVENT.
AFTER THIS EVENT IN 2010, SEVERAL BANDS REPORTEDLY DID NOT GET PAID. SOME REPORTED THAT THEY EVENTUALLY GOT PAID ONLY AFTER DRIVING TO VREEDE”S PARENT’S HOUSE (HE LIVES WITH THEM STILL) AND THREATENING ACTION. WE APOLOGIZE TO ANYONE THAT MAY HAVE GOTTEN INVOLVED WITH VREEDE OR BLACK CAT THINKING HE WAS A LEGITIMATE PROMOTER DUE TO THE COVERAGE THAT WE PROVIDED. ONCE AGAIN WE WERE NOT AWARE OF HIS PAST OR HIS DISHONEST DEALINGS AT THE TIME OF THIS COVERAGE. FOR MORE INFORMATION ON VREEDE AND BLACK CAT YOU CAN GO HERE AND HERE
That’s right kiddies, you heard it here first. We’ll be on location in Los Angeles at the always entertaining Black Cat Memorial weekend Psychobilly show featuring The Quakes and a plethora of psychobilly and rockabilly bands.
The West Coast is ground zero for good psychobilly in the U.S. so I don’t expect this show to disappoint.
We’ll provide some backstage interviews as well as some performances for you all while we gather footage for the upcoming documentary “Punktology”, a look at the punk lifestyle from all over the world (lots of the bands are from south of the border hear).
If you are on the west coast already, come out and join us and look for me and ask me for the official Punk Outlaw wife-beater as featured here modeled by the lovely model Jen Oda and yours truly (the ugly dude), first 5 people (male or female) to show up at the event and ask me for one get theirs for free!
