Happy Friday! It is time for more new releases and one I know everyone on earth is waiting to hear…that is right…Nickelback!! Your local police will be thrilled to have new Nickelback music to play and torment their prisoners. There is quite a lot and a little for everyone so take a look and start listening. My choices are highlighted in Blue.
- Nickelback – Feed the Machine – (Nickelback II Productions): Nickelback is back (no pun intended) to bring more enjoyment to our senses (this was supposed to come out as sarcasm, but sometimes it is tough to show that in writing). Will I give it a listen??? Maybe, not sure yet. I figured I would mention it since so many people do buy their albums and go see them in concert.
- Cheap Trick – We’re All Alright! – (Big Machine): The first of two childhood favorite bands with new albums. First up is Cheap Trick. I am glad to see them still cranking out new tunes as this is their 18th studio album and they actually released one last year as well. Will I give this one a listen…hell yeah!.

Luckily it was just down the street about 5-8 minutes.
We arrived around 8:45-50 (I don’t remember exactly and it is really not key to the story). The line was really good. It had only about 40 people, so we figured we would wait it out. It turns out they had just opened and were only letting a few people in at a time so we timed it perfectly.
