Start 2010 With A Bang: Ladymoon (Artist Spotlight)

Ladymoon’s ambient, spacey instrumentals and lengthy, hard rock jams are testament to the qualified musicians that they are. Like The Twin Cats, Ladymoon boasts participation in numerous music festivals every summer- most notably Knollfest and Mojostock.

Float over to their website and MySpace to prepare yourself for the rock show that will be bestowed upon you tonight.

As one of the 4 local bands opening a new year of concerts at The Vogue, I asked Ryan Brown of Ladymoon to reflect on 2009 and look into the coming year. Read below for his responses.

What do you see as the band’s biggest accomplishment in 2009?

Ladymoon is releasing their new cd “resurface” on January 1st at The Vogue. Our current line up is Ryan Brown on Lead Vocals and Guitar, Nick Mallers on Drums and Kris Potts on Bass. We have been touring around the Midwest performing over 100 shows in 2009! We are looking forward to Jan 1st at the Vogue as being the kick off to another great year!

What/where was your most memorable concert performance of 2009? Why/what was so special?

The best show Ladymoon played in 2009 would have to be our performance at the Headjamz Music Festival in Tennessee. It was on a huge stage in front of hundreds of people. It felt like a real rock show. We performed really well and had a great time!

The best show you saw in 2009 as an audience member? Why?

The best show that we saw in 2009 was either Straight No Chaser at the Murat or Consider The Source at the Rock Lobster. SNC is the best vocal group out right now. Consider the Source is a jazz/rock/fusion group from New York that blew our minds when they played with us at the Rock Lobster one Tuesday night.

What about 2010 excites you the most right now?

What excites us about 2010 is that we have our new cd to promote as well as a whole slew of new tunes that we will be performing. We plan on doing some serious touring out west, in the Midwest and on the east coast! We plan on expanding our audience and creating a buzz amongst the music scene.

What can your fans look forward to in the coming year from your band?

Fans can look forward to Ladymoon producing yet another cd in 2010 along with an array of new merchandise including t-shirts, stickers, posters and other accessories. We also have a couple of new tunes featured in an independent film called “My Bloody Wedding” by Morgan Mead. This year should be filled with great live performances all over the country as well as some special live events and music festival appearances.
