Awarded “Best German Rn’B and Rock/Pop Artist”

Cassandra Steen has certainly become a well-known artist in Germany after having won an ECHO Award, however I am not so convinced everybody knows her outside her native country.

I discovered her by chance searching for new cool tunes on YouTube and must say that she can match up the level of other more famous American artists! She sings beautifully in both German and English languages.

If you would like to know more about her, look her up on Wikipedia. Otherwise, if you would just like to listen to some of her tracks, check out the below videos (one of them cannot be embedded, so you will need to click on the link to access it):

Lixx: Glam Rock is back in Dublin!

For those of you, who don’t know an awful lot about Lixx, here is a little biography about the band.

Lixx is a 5-piece Dublin based cover band. They have been playing all the songs from the 80’s and early 90’s that used to kick your ass on the Headbangers Ball, by the likes of Motley Crue, Poison, Firehouse, Def Leppard, Ugly Kid Joe, Extreme, Warrant, Tesla, Winger, Harem Scarem, Bon Jovi, Tyketto, Judas Priest, Whitesnake, Danger Danger, Twisted Sister and many more!

So far, they have played in different venues in Dublin such as The Village, Crawdaddy, Twisted Pepper, Fibber Magees and will keep playing around Dublin during the summer.

So if you are being glam rock nostalgic, check their gig dates and news on their website and myspace account by clicking on one of the below links:

I have been listening to them and have compiled for you a few pictures and a video.
