This week, Scottish/Canadian Band, the Boxtones gives us a review of the Line 6 Helix Stomp , talk about the new music film “The Dirt” on Netflix as well as some news on who’s coming back to MEFCC (Middle East Film & Comic Con)!
1. “OUT OF THE BOX” – TECH TALK
Lead guitarist Gary Tierney has the mother of all guitar effects pedal boards…The Line 6 Helix Floor that really packs a punch! But that’s not enough because he wanted more! Seeing as we play acoustic gigs around town from time to time, it only made sense to get the compact version of his ultimate pedal board (Line 6 Helix Stomp) as it still offers the same sound quality as the rest of its class, is loaded with over 200 effects, up to 6 amp/cab simulations, 3 footswitches and an expression pedal all for a reasonable price (still not cheap but for what it can do, it’s definitely worth every dirham!)

2. “BOX OFFICE” – NEW MUSIC FILM RELEASED
The long awaited Netflix release is nearly here! Ever since hearing the news of the film adaptation of ‘The Dirt’ was coming out, we all got excited to hear that the soundtrack will feature 4 new songs from the band with help from legendary producer Bob Rock. And after missing their comeback tour a couple of years back at Du Arena (the downside of us gigging every weekend when bands like Motley Crue come through), this biopic is going to let us experience the journey of one of the most talked about bands in music history and follow their rise to superstardom!
‘The Dirt’ releases on Netflix Friday, March 22nd. Mark your calendars and take a ride on the wild side!
3. “GIANT BOX OF COMICS ” – AN ORIGINAL GIG AT COMIC CON
THE EPIC NEWS IS OUT! Your favorite original ROCK BAND is coming back to MEFCC (Middle East Film & Comic Con)! We’re excited to join the weekend activities with world-class celebrities like the beautiful Katie Cassidy (Black Canary from Arrow), talented voice actor Tara Strong (Harley Quinn/Batgirl/Raven in DC animated series), Ross Marquand (AMC’s The Walking Dead and Marvel Avengers: Infinity War) and the real Mike Colter (Marvel’s Luke Cage)!
You can catch our main stage performance on Saturday, April 13th where you’ll hear new material, get your hands on some merch and join in the fun that surrounds our most-loved event of the year!
