Although Pennsylvania music legends The Badlees have announced the end of the line as a band, their music continues to receive accolades. The Badlees’ music will be a major part of the upcoming film Trust Me, which is about a fictitious band called The d**nsels. Coincidentally, all of the music played by The d**nsels will actually be songs performed by The Badlees. Shooting for the film will happen in Lancaster this coming Saturday, June 14, and the filmmakers are looking for extras to be d**nsels fans at a show at The Chameleon Club in Lancaster. Fans interested in being a part of the film are invited to email info@trustmefilm.com and simply say "I'm a Badlees fan and I'd like to be an extra."

Another female-themed hard rock show has been announced for July. Following such events as last year’s Halos and Harlots Festival in Altoona and Female Voices of Metal II in Pittsburgh earlier this year, the Women of Metal Fest will take place on Saturday, July 12 at the Rex Theater in Pittsburgh. The all-day event will begin at 2 p.m., and feature performances from the bands A Sound of Thunder, Beyond Eden, Leeja Stark, Lies Inc., Midnight Eternal, MindMaze, Theatrum Mundi, Writing Off Tomorrow and more.
