Grammy Nominee Coming To Butte For Brawls And Kickstart Days
Brawls and Kickstart Days are gearing up for another incredible event this summer. This will mark the third year running for the event, and the two-day card will not disappoint.
The Butte Depot will be the epicenter for this year’s Brawls and Kickstart Days, presented by NXT Gen Entertainment, August 4th and 5th. From year one, bare-knuckle boxing has been at the center of this event, and this year is no exception. “The Baddest men on the planet face off in the ring, with no gloves, in one of the most brutal sports in the world.”
Bare-knuckle boxing will take place on Friday, August 4th, at 7:00 pm. Before we get to the boxing right however, the night will start with a performance from Pyro Maniac- Kamakazie Kid. This will come as no surprise (with that name), but he is going to light himself on fire and run through walls! Kamakazie Kid will perform both nights of the event.
Saturday night will see a world-record attempt. World renown MR. Dizzy from ‘American Daredevils Saga’ attempts a record-breaking stretch limousine jump.
Because who doesn’t look at a limo, and think “hmm, I wonder how far I can jump that bad boy?”
We will talk about these performers, (and the boxing card) as we get closer, but I want to focus on the music for a minute. Friday night will see ‘Smells like Nirvana’, a tribute band to the greatness of Nirvana.
Music on Saturday will start at 7:30 with the debut of the Knievel Daredevil Band, led by the granddaughter of Evel Knievel, Krysten Knievel.
Wrapping up the night on Saturday will be the Grammy-nominated band Everclear. Originally formed in Portland Oregon, by frontman Art Alexakis, Everclear exploded on the music scene in 1995 with their major label debut Sparkle and Fade. Led by the second single ‘Santa Monica’ the album was certified Platinum in May of 1996.
The band’s follow-up release ‘So Much for the Afterglow’ pushed them directly into the mainstream. With the first two releases doing well on the charts (Everything to Everyone, and I will buy you a new life) the third release catapulted the band even further, Father of Mine was released in July of 1998. The album was certified double platinum not long after.
Everclear has played in every corner of the globe, and I am truly excited that they are coming to our little corner of the world to play in August.
