“The Most Unoriginal Original Band” Around: Bam Margera and F@ckface Unstoppable (full interview and pictorial)

Maybe Bam should start calling his band “The Bam Margera Experience” instead of F@ckface Unstoppable. It’s contradictory to the point, to Bam’s vision, to his persona…but that really is what you get at the show; an experience. This is the second time Bam has graced Pittsburgh with his show in the last four months thanks to Chaos Concert Entertainment.  It’s a great showcase for Pittsburgh talent on a main stage as well as a chance to see Bam do something besides destroy his body.  With a set basically made up of punk and mountain music classic covers mixed with F@ckface Unstoppable originals, they will surprise the uninitiated, in a good way.  They are more than a garage band, but not pretentious enough to pretend that at this point they are reaching to be rock stars either.  Joined by his brother Jess on drums (as well as Chad and Matty J from CKY), the dueling/combination percussionist rhythm section was a nice addition to the set and really added punch.  The band was tight and sounded really good, surely helped from having toured so extensively as of late.  But tonight was about having a great time and that’s what everyone had, especially from the opening introduction by Bam and Jesse’s dad, Phil (to the crowd’s delight), and a surprise “performance” of the well-known Novak (Brandon Novak of the CKY videos as well as Jackass) as he attempted to sing the classic Phil Collins tune, “In the Air Tonight”…naked…duct taped. We can’t really relay the experience in words and do it justice, but we hope you get some of the gist by these pics and our exclusive interview with Bam. Special thanks to tour manager Frank (you’re awesome bro!), Bill of Chaos Concert Entertainment, and Andrew of The Pittsburgh Pulse…and of course Bam who was super cool, gracious, and the ultimate host.   Check out our interview with Bam here:

Bam Margera Party at Pittsburgh’s Ironworks

Bill and the Boys at Concert Chaos Entertainment just keep bringing the most interesting and hottest hard acts to Pittsburgh. The intimate venue is an awesome place to see the bands that bring the grime, funk, and fury of metal/punk/hardcore/metalcore/death metal/(stick in your favorite hard genre here reader). The atmosphere is as welcoming as the bands- if you love that camaraderie that brings all of us geeks and freaks together. So, it was no surprise when Chaos brought Bam Margera and his travelling party to the ‘Burgh.
With special guests such as A BREATHLESS SEPTEMBER, WE MUST SAVE THE PRINCESS, LIOTTA, THE FAILSAFE, ROYAL REVISE, ARCANE HAVEN, LADY VADER ENT, ATHENS, CHAIN THE SCYLLA, DETHLEHEM, a DJ Set by: BLACK DADDY (Hardstyle / Trap), and ONLY FLESH: FLESH HOOK FREAK SHOW, there was an amazing lot of talent from Pittsburgh and from across the country. But of course, the people were here to see Bam. And Bam gave the crowd not only himself, but CKY as his backing band (collectively known as FUCKFACE). Plus, Bam’s famous father Phil and Mom April were there to top it all off and hang out with the audience.
A little bit metal, a little bit punk, and whole lotta fun; Bam brought the goods. Playing all sorts of heavy tunes and covers, Bam’s band was having a great time and that infectious energy was absorbed and reverted right back out to the band and all who were there. With plenty of what were more than likely inside jokes peppered with some raucous drunken stage banter, the event had the feeling of those basement party throwdowns of your past with these great seedy little bands that made you want to party and punch (this is a good thing people). The circle pits were in full effect, the place was packed, the bar was slammed with customers (and kudos to the bartenders who handled it all), the bands mingled and took pix with all…Pittsburgh Music Magazine would have to say it was an event that was not only successful, but just goes to show that entertainment is not dead in this town but alive and well.
