Heaven’s Basement, Joan Jett, The Pretty Reckless & All That Remains to Rock Our 20th Birthday Bash
The Rock Station 99X is approaching a major milestone. In April of 1994, to the howls of Billy Idol's "Rebel Yell," The Rebel Rocker 99X was born. Now, 20 years (and several name changes) later, we're still kicking ass, taking names and playing the loudest and vilest records we can.
To commemorate two decades of decadence and debauchery, we're celebrating the only way we know how: by raising a little hell and throwing a big-ass party! We'll have a little something from all eras of 99X history, as Heaven's Basement, Joan Jett & The Blackhearts, The Pretty Reckless and All That Remains take the stage for our 20th Birthday Bash.
It all goes down at the Shreveport Municipal Auditorium, May 10, 2014. Tickets on sale at 10 am on Wednesday March 19 at all Ticketmaster outlets, and at Ticketmaster.com. This show is GA and all ages. Ticket prices are:
$32 -- March 26 - May 9 (ONLY at the CenturyLink Center Box Office)
$41.85 -- March 26 - May 9 (TicketMaster online and at outlets)
$37 (Day of show at Municipal Auditorium)
About the Bands
Heaven’s Basement are about evolution, growth and reaching new heights. Defiance, risk taking, and self-challenge are the band’s hallmark.
Having toured across Europe playing hundreds upon hundreds of shows alongside bands such as Papa Roach, Shinedown, Buckcherry, Black Stone Cherry and appearing at festivals such as Sonisphere and Download; Heaven’s Basement are a band who’ve built their reputation on a setting Britain’s underground alight and then taking that energy to bigger stages across Europe.

Joan Jett is an originator, an innovator, and a visionary. As the leader of the hard-rocking Blackhearts, she's had eight platinum and gold albums and nine Top 40 singles, including the classics "Bad Reputation," "I Love Rock 'N' Roll," "I Hate Myself For Loving You," and "Crimson and Clover."

The Pretty Reckless
New York-based rockers The Pretty Reckless have blown up in the past year and the band isn't slowing down. Taylor Momsen and co. -- Ben Phillips (lead guitar, backing vocals), Mark Damon (bass) and Jamie Perkins (drums) -- now have the no. 1 rock song in the country with their anthem "Heaven Knows."

All That Remains have no choice but to be honest. Ever since their formation in 1998, they’ve stayed true to themselves with each successive record. There’s no pretense. There’s no posturing. There’s no pandering. Their seventh full-length effort, A War You Cannot Win [Razor & Tie], is no exception. The Massachusetts quintet—Philip Labonte [vocals], Oli Herbert [guitar], Mike Martin [guitar], Jeanne Sagan [bass], and Jason Costa [drums]—unabashedly unleash tight and taut heavy metal with arena-size hooks. Defying preconceived notions, the music is as genuine as it gets, and All That Remains wouldn’t have it any other way. [Official Site]
