Hollywood, CA: When I first heard of ACIDIC, “Pure Energy” would be the first word to come to my mind to describe their brand of rock music. ACIDIC was playing here on the Sunset strip – Hollywood. So I headed down, curious to see this band in action for the first time before they embarked on another touring season.

By the time ACIDIC stormed the stage at the Viper Room on Friday, the sold-out crowd that packed this classic venue had been waiting nearly 30-minutes and was veritably seething with anticipation for the Los Angeles based 4 – piece band, which has stirred up quite a buzz with its high energy driven approach to rock/alternative music which didn’t disappoint.

Picture yourself driving down the 405 – freeway consuming mass quantities of Rock Star Energy Drinks with your hair on fire while riding in a shopping cart, YOU my friend have now experienced ACIDIC live in action.

Their music was distinctive and powerful. Playing tunes from their last album “Creatures”, which in my opinion never let up from beginning to end as ACIDIC’s command of the frenetic crowd never faltered.

I grabbed the guys from ACIDIC for a short interview in the parking lot of the Viper Room before they hit the stage and the guys did not disappoint. Although our exchanged was short, they did talk to me about another album and tour in the works for the 2016 year.

Very special thank you to Mary Lyon – Manager

About the Author

Love music! Being around it, watching it, sometimes even playing it since I was a little Trouble-Maker growing up in the Orange County California Punk Scene. I was that one kid who would scale walls and fences just to get a glimpse in side venues to see big bands like Iron Maiden, Circle Jerks, Van Halen ,Black Flag, etc, etc. My past job's has taking me to many cool places. I worked as a PR Asst that has helped with actors & actresses. I have also helped a few bands with their bookings, promos and some management opportunities. For me, music has always been my drug even when I found myself caught up in the drug scene here in the Los Angeles area where I now call home. Today I'm proud to say I've been clean & sober from drug use since 2000. Rock is what I'm mostly into! "Shit that moves you, Shit that has heart and soul." Says the late great Dimebag. I'm currently working as a west coast rep for the radio program Maximum Threshold Radio @ ( You can find me @ where you can see my many journey's into the music scene. MTR: Show email: Email:
