Our friends over in at Harding St. are throwing a special gig today at The Good Cherry in Forest, VA. You’ll be hearing more from these guys very soon on this blog…
Special Event at The Good Cherry with Vespers (members of The Late Virginia Summers, Virgineola, The Hundred Acre Band) and
All Ages; No Cover
Short notice, I know, but come out if you can make it. We’ll be there.
First, just want to say that the Bastards of Fate show last Thrusday was FANTASTIC. We’re going to put some pictures (perhaps a clip) up very soon, just to make you feel bad that you slept on it.
In the meantime…
-Eternal Summers are playing tonight at the Bazaar at 9:30 (note the time change!) with Drunk Tigers. $5 at the door.
- On Sunday, January 24th (tomorrow), The Bastards of Fate will be at Happy’s Flea Market w/Heevahava, Poe Mac, and Nancy & 2 Meteors. Show starts at 8, $5 at the door.
-Finally, as I posted on my upcoming music of 2010 post, Beach House have a new record coming out next Tuesday. What does that have to do with local music? Absolutely nothing. But it’s still fantastic news. Video!
Happy Weekend, guys.
Happy New Year, everyone! We’ll have some pictures from the Circus Practice/Paper The Operator gig (which was fantastic, BTW) up in a couple of days…in the meantime, I thought I would share a few upcoming releases that I’m looking foward to in the beginning of this year.

It’s a strange thought, really. I’ve all but abandoned my car radio for my iPod; I read 5 different internet music ‘zines before taking the recommendation of a friend of mine in Baltimore via Facebook of a new band that put some demos on MySpace. And did I mention YouTube?
Anyways, for our first music post, we came to a decision: rather than give 3 long, overlapping “Best of 2009″ lists, we would shorten (and expand) to a Top 5 format, so that readers could get a better idea of the tastes and leanings of the individual writers at this blog.
So, here goes (in no particular order):
