I’m totally siding with the Washington Armory suing the Migos rap group over the 2015 riot in Albany…

I’m totally siding with the Washington Armory venue in Albany on this ’cause why? Simply because everything they’re saying about the Migos rap group is true. The Migos are no stranger to starting fights with people if you look them up in youtube. The Migos think they’re tough guys for sure but what do you expect from rappers?

This story is big in the local news and it even attracted some attention in the national news too. There is lots of video of the Washington Armory riot that took place back in 2015 and I posted a few videos of the riot. Check ’em out, it’s pretty crazy.


Of course as soon as this story hit the news, it’s no surprise to find local media outlets and some national media, sucking up to the Migos instead of siding with the Armory. You know how the media are very protective of the black community.

The Armory accuses the Migos of being really late for the concert and refusing to do meet and greets. Well, this wasn’t the first time the group did stuff like this ’cause they did the same thing at the 2015 George University concert. At the Georgia University show they were arrested for possession of marijuana and firearm possession as well. Look it up.

Funny, I’ve never heard of the Migos before until this story broke out. I listened to them in youtube a little bit and they’re absolutely horrible.

One thing I’m noticing in the Albany local music scene is that this scene have been booking rap artists to venues around this area a lot lately. Rap music is getting bigger locally. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not against all rap music — I actually like some of it. It’s just that you got to realize that not all rappers are good people. Many are trouble makers ’cause they think they’re “gangster” or something. I’ve been to some rap concerts in the past myself.

I wish the Armory good luck on this as they have every right to defend themselves.

Sounds like the Migos are unprofessional jackasses.


Mayor Sheehan, a total disaster for the city of Albany… glad I don’t live there…

Albany, N.Y. mayor, Kathy Sheehan is running for re-election and I urge Albany to think really hard before voting. Sheehan’s really gotta go as she is a total nightmare and a disaster for Albany.

Sheehan wants to cut police and firefighters in Albany just to save money which is pretty dumb, in my opinion. I don’t like that idea at all… well, Sheehan is very anti-police so it’s no surprise really. She always has been anti-police.


She also issued Executive Orders to turn Albany into a sanctuary city.


Is it just me or is Kathy Sheehan intentionally trying to make Albany less safe?

Albany has always been pretty high on crime but Sheehan is gonna turn Albany into a hell hole if she wants to cut police and turn Albany into a Sanctuary city. She’s gonna make Albany even more dangerous.

The Albany mayor race is coming up and so far there’s only three people who are for sure running. There’s Kathy running for re-election and two other Democrats. No republicans yet.

Will there be Albany republicans planning to run? Hopefully. It’ll be cool if Albany could get a Republican candidate who is also a Trump supporter that’ll be even better. We really need to make Albany great again ’cause that city is horrible. Albany has always been a liberal city. Time to turn it red again.

I don’t live in Albany but I don’t like Kathy Sheehan at all and to those that live in Albany who follow my blog, you should think about voting her out. That woman is another typical evil liberal. She’s like a local version of Hillary and Barack. I’m sure a Republican will get on the Mayor Race, we’ll just have to wait.

Sheehan’s gotta go.


More on Albany, Crossgates Mall shooting… still calling it a “false flag”…

Definition of “False flag”:

According to the U.S. Department of Defense Dictionary of Military and Associated Terms, a covert operation (also as CoveOps or covert ops) is “an operation that is so planned and executed as to conceal the identity of or permit plausible denial by the sponsor.” It is intended to create a political effect which can have implications in the military, intelligence or law enforcement arenas affecting either the internal population of a country or individuals outside of it. Covert operations aim to secretly fulfill their mission objectives without any parties knowing who sponsored or carried out the operation.


Local media around the Capital Region are still not giving the full story of the Crossgates mall shooting. They still won’t give proof of an actual shooting either. If you watch some of the videos in youtube about this, you don’t see many people panicking especially with some of the interviews. Why would there be a bunch of people standing outside of the mall when they should be away from the building? Far away from the building. Why do they have to sit in their vehicles and not leave until the police told them to? Why do people have to be locked in the stores inside with an active shooter?

So there’s claims of an active shooter with no proof given. If there was an active shooter, the mall should have loads of security guards. The malls should also have hidden video cameras all over the fucking building. If a gunman has been spotted through surveillance, I’m sure security would have taken the gunman out right away. That’s what they spent half of their life training for in college, ya think? Sure security guards don’t have guns but they do have tasers which is enough to take a gunman down. So I didn’t understand the hundreds of police officers running around and a helicopter flying overhead. It’s all a joke to me, really.

I’m still believing it’s a “false flag” operation, controlled by our local area. Some would want to think I’m blaming Obama but not once I said Obama’s name. Of course, some would think I’m blaming Obama on everything. I think this is a covert operation by our local government possibly. Just another way to divide the country even more since they claimed the shooter was black and to ram gun control down our throats even more. So Donald Trump becomes president and this happens. How odd is that??? Are you trying to get under Trump’s skin about the 2nd Amendment? Is that what this was about? Is New York State upset about Trump’s victory so they did this hoping to grab his attention? Hoping this story would go viral.

Local media is just as bad as the MSM.


Video: Were these black people getting in my face at Trump rally? Seems like they were…

More after rally craziness! #trumprally #Albany #Trump2016

A post shared by Kev Brock (@kevbrockmusic) on

I kept watching this footage many times. Were those 4 black people part of the Black Lives Matter protesters? I’m pretty sure they were. They saw me holding one of Trump’s support signs. One black guy walked by me and goes “Yeah”, the other guy screams, “Did not like that” and then this couple behind them notices me and this black lady looks me dead in the eye and gives me a big smile as you see in the video.

I don’t know if you notice but that big black lady smiling at me was holding an anti-Trump sign.

Yeah those people were definitely picking on me ’cause they noticed that I’m a Trump supporter and also they noticed me filming them on camera too. In my mind, I was gonna say to the lady, “You got a problem?” but that would have escalated into a big fight so I kept my mouth shut.

I wasn’t there to fight with protesters, I was there to show my support for the Donald. I just ignored those guys and they just kept walking. That’s what you gotta do, ya know? If you don’t want to fight with the protesters, you can’t let ’em get to ya.

I didn’t want to risk myself getting arrested that night, hahaha.


Upstate NY Sheriff urges citizens to carry guns where ever they go…

While our piece of shit governor, Andrew Cuomo is all for taking away our gun rights as well… there’s a few Sheriffs around here who would agree that every citizen should own a gun with a legal permit. This Sheriff is smart.


I’ve always believed that taken away our guns is not gonna stop shootings. It’s only gonna make shootings worse ’cause criminals don’t follow laws no matter how tough laws get. Even if the White House is successful at taking our guns away, people will always find ways to smuggle guns into the country. This is something you can’t stop. Guns are everywhere.

To reduce violence is to defend yourselves. I will always stand by that opinion. If you have a gun with a legal permit, I’m sure people would leave you alone. Having a legal gun would be worth it to save your own life and others.

Yeah, I do know that mass shootings really happen but under Barack Obama most of the mass shootings I’ve seen under him were all “false flags” and many of those shootings didn’t really happen at all and I’ll have another post on that soon. If there’s a mass shooting all over the news and if Obama is quick to respond to it then it’s a pretty good chance that the shooting is a hoax and false flag.

Mass shootings happen all the time but many of them gets ignored by the mainstream media, though. The ones that gets ignored by the mainstream media are the real ones. I’ll have a post on that soon.


A vet jumps to his death at an Albany VA Medical Center, more proof that our vets are in danger…

Vets have died in VA hospitals and many are not getting the care they need in VA hospitals all across the US but even the VA is becoming a huge problem locally in Albany.

A young man who is a war vet jumped to his death off a parking garage at the Albany Stratton VA Medical Center.


I definitely blame this on the Washington, US Department of Veteran Affairs ’cause they are in charge of all VA medical centers across the US.

If you look at the Albany Stratton VA Med Center website, you can see it’s linked the US Dept. of VA.


Sucks to the young vet who jumped to his death but wonder what pushed him to do it? I think he was suffering some major health problems and he wasn’t getting the help he needed. He knew he was gonna die anyway and he didn’t want his death to be in that place. It’s probably a hell hole in those VA hospitals (almost like prison) ’cause vets aren’t getting the right care that they needed.

It’s real sad too. Our VA system is a mess and this is another reason why Donald Trump is getting my vote ’cause he’s gonna fix it all fast.


It’s only gonna get much worse too. Thanks Barack, you piece of garbage.


Do cover bands steal the spotlight from all original bands? I’d say yes absolutely!!!

This has always been a long running debate in the musicians community. Do cover bands steal the spotlight from original bands? I would say yes, absolutely! This is just the sad truth and all you musicians out there gotta admit that this is true.

I have noticed that cover bands and even tribute bands have taken over the Capital Region music scene. There are some original bands that establish themselves pretty good and some get a huge fanbase going but not enough of them. There are tons of original talent around here that are begging to get heard but it’s really is hard for an original band or solo artist to establish themselves. Why? Because the cover band and tribute band scene is so huge here. The cover bands & tribute bands get more successes than the original bands. Cover bands also get paid more than original bands too. Cover bands get paid a lot more.

Why are cover bands more successful than original bands in this area? It’s because the answer is really quite simple. Cover bands help make the bars & club a lot of money. They pull in a lot of people. As long as customers are coming in to buy the admission tickets and buy a lot of drinks… that shit makes the bars & clubs happy. That’s why cover bands get more successes than the originals. It has always been like that.

There are other promoters in the area who try to promote nothing but original music only which is what CRUMBS is all about. They do a good job of promoting local original music only. Original music continues to get lesser success ’cause not many people around here like original music. A lot of people would rather have a good time by dancing to the same songs you hear on the radio. They would rather dance to top 40 stuff.

It really is hard to get people to listen to your original music. Have you noticed that each time I put out a cover song of mine, those videos get more views than my originals? That just proves my point. I think it’s safe to say that people would rather hear cover songs than original music.

Which gets me thinking that I might stop doing cover songs for good if I want people to respect my originals more. I’ll probably just focus on originals only. I’ll start writing new songs again soon.

It is pretty sad that the cover band scene is bigger than the original band scene, though. It’s always been like that all over the United States so it’s nothing new. We do need a new revolution. Original bands need to take over somehow. To be honest with ya, I’m not a big fan of the cover band scene myself. I’m also not a big fan of tribute bands. I have noticed that tribute bands have been on the rise a lot lately. Tribute bands is when a band pretends to be your favorite band and you play songs by nobody else but that band you like for example there are too many Led Zeppelin tribute bands around here. There are also too many Ac/Dc tributes, a lot of Black Sabbath tributes, Pearl Jam tributes, etc. I can think of a certain somebody who pushed the tribute band scene out there more but I don’t wanna name names. I can’t stand tribute bands. I just don’t see the point in them.

I like to support original bands & artists mostly ’cause some of those guys do write really good songs. It’s just sad that they don’t get heard much. We really gotta do something about the original music scene.

I know many would find it offensive of my opinion that cover bands steal the spotlight from original bands but you gotta learn to accept that truth and embrace it. It is what it is.


The Cammy’s cancelled which doesn’t surprise me at all, good riddance, though!!!


“FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Due to a lack of support from our music community, it is with a heavy heart that we announce this years 2014 Capital Area Music Awards, scheduled for January 25, 2015, has been cancelled. We truly appreciate the support of so many people in the development stage. It is our sincere hope that someday we may join together for a night of musical community and unite as one! If you have purchased advanced tickets, refunds are available where tickets were purchased. Thanks you.” – Greg Gamache

If you wanna know why these guys behind “The Cammy’s” have been silent, here ya go. It doesn’t surprise me that the show will get cancelled due to “lack of support”. Why for the “lack of support”? It’s because no one cares about award shows. That’s not what we play music for to begin with. Everybody knows that last year’s award show was such a disaster and we didn’t want to go through it again this year. Plus, most importantly everybody knows that Dan of Tier One Talent is an egotistical piece of shit who wasn’t to be trusted at all. Everybody knows that you guys behind this garbage setup an award show so you can win yourselves awards ’cause you were that desperate for attention.

I’m sure these idiots didn’t get too many bands/musicians sending in their submissions hoping for a nomination… that could be part of the reason for the cancellation and also, lack of ticket sales is another reason. As you can see in Greg’s post about the cancellation, people are replying blaming the area which is inappropriate and unprofessional. You have no one else to blame but yourselves.

Hopefully, this award show goes away and stays away forever. GOOD RIDDANCE!!!! Celebrate! Shows over for them!!!!

Thank you for ignoring this show, Capital District! That’s why you guys, rock!!! \m/


More truth of the Cammy Awards…

You wouldn’t believe how much it costs to put together an event like the Cammy Awards (http://www.thecammys.net/) at a venue called, The Linda in Albany. I just contacted the Linda in Albany via e-mail out of curiosity of their rental pricing of the venue. The fact is that anybody can have a show or an event at The Linda as long as you can pay their hourly rates. The owners doesn’t really go by the number of people attending the gig or how good/bad the show is. Anybody can rent The Linda as long you have that kind of money. Wanna know how much it costs hourly to rent the place?

I got a response from the venue back and they said it costs somewhere between $500 – $1000. As I predicted before… it’s not cheap. So to do the math, since the show starts at 5:00 p.m., it’ll probably go on ’til like late in the evening like 9 or 10 or later. So in all, the show is gonna cost them like several thousand dollars or more.

I really don’t think this Tier One Talent guy is paying for this all by himself. He’s definitely having some help with the budgeting of this show. I’m sure the show costs a lot more than the hourly rates. I’m sure they’ll have to pay to decorate the place, pay the bands and all that stuff.

The reason they want to have this event at The Linda is ’cause The Linda is like a theatre, I think. They clearly want this show to be like a mini-version of The Grammy’s like you see on TV.

In my opinion, they are wasting tons of money on a show that no one cares about.

According to the website, they say the nominations are supposed to be revealed on Dec. 15th which is next Monday. If your band or venue gets nominated… congratulations but don’t get so excited about it… I warn ya. Instead of the talented bands that matter around here winning the awards, they won’t win awards but instead Tier One’s Talent and his gang of friends will be winning awards. It’s gonna be the same bullshit like last year. They’re just a bunch of egomaniacs and attention whores trying to get recognized for what they do. They’re just a bunch of losers putting together their own award show so they can win themselves awards and show the Capital District how special and cool they are. I repeat, egomaniacs and people with delusions of grandeur. They are a bunch of people who are legends in their own minds.

When last year’s award show happened, I can’t tell you how many times I warned certain bands & musicians who were nominated and warned them not to trust this show but sure enough, they didn’t listen to me. They didn’t win the awards and they ended up getting disappointed. Same bullshit will happen this year.

I wouldn’t be surprised if Tier One Talent guy shitty Alice In Chains tribute band, Sludge Factory is gonna get a few nominations, that’s probably why this guy stepped down from being in charge of promoting this show on the facebook page.

Don’t be naive, Capital District. Don’t support these people behind this bullshit event. I can’t wait to see the nominations next week. It’s gonna be a good laugh!!!


Once again, nobody cares about local award shows, the whole idea is silly…

We understand what you’re trying to do, dude but nobody cares about awards.That’s why nobody supports this garbage. On top of that bands and music artists around here doesn’t have the time for it ’cause most of them are too busy making music and playing their gigs.  We’re not worried about awards. Everybody also knows that this show is all for your conflict of interest, we’re not stupid, dude.

The only people that DO care about this garbage event are your little gang of friends and those few who live under the delusion of supporting the “scene” positively.

You guys live under the delusion of this show “selling out” when I predict you probably will get like 10 people showing up or less.

How come you guys never showed photos of the awards? What do the trophies look like? I challenge you to post a photo of the award.
