OC CONCERT GUIDE
Sick Puppies ‘Connect’ With Fans For A Night In The OC
SEPTEMBER 4, 2013 BY STEFANEE FREEDMAN
Sick Puppies play the House of Blues Thursday, Sept. 12
Showcasing songs off their third album released July 2013 entitled, “Connect,” Sick Puppies will be headlining the House Of Blues on Sept. 12. Opening the night for Sick Puppies will be Redlight King for a great night of not-to-be-missed pop metal.
According to Sick Puppies’ website, the new album is all about how they feel a connection to their own lives at this moment. “The trio is all about connection–with their fans, each other, their own psyches…”
Originally the duo from Australia consisted of vocalist and guitarist, Shim Moore, and bassist, Emma Anzai. After relocating their band to the U.S. and settling in Los Angeles the band recruited their final member from Orange County, drummer Mark Goodwin.
OC Concert Guide had an opportunity to talk to Anzai on their connection with this area and what fans can look forward to on their up-coming tour.
