Vamp Star

Performing Friday, Nov. 7

Buy tickets for the concert featuring Suicide Ali, VAEIDOS, and Vamp Star.

Vamp Star at PMX Vamp Star will be live and in concert at Pacific Music Live.

Once described as the bastard son of Aqua and Rob Zombie, Vamp Star's sound is a blending of metal, techno, and pop. It is dancey yet hard, sleazy yet fun, and totally unique. Their stage show is a high energy mix of music, go-go dancing, and fetish performances. The show is sexy enough for an adult crowd but not so obscene as to alienate them from a mainstream audience.

Heday

Heday at PMX Heday will be live and in concert at Pacific Music Live.

First and foremost, Heday is an artist. Utilizing an abundance of instruments from across the musical spectrum in an effort to create an authentic sound in an era of quickly manufactured and often shallow music, he has already garnered attention for his efforts from past innovators, including, legendary session drummer Jim Keltner, Mitsuru Kuramoto the illustrious writer behind Japanese comedic duo Down Town, and Grammy-Award winning producer/engineer Tom Weir. And that is just the short list.
