Weekend Post: Kid A, Music Reviews, The Circus Practice

Some random news for everyone on this fine weekend….

-Hollins alumni and Turbo P associate Kid A will be featured on the new Daedelus mini-LP, Righteous Fists of Harmony, due to drop on March 23rd. It also seems one of her tracks will be featured in an episode of Gossip Girl sometime the near future. If you don’t know, now you know.

-You may have noticed that there’s a new tab on the blog. Well, starting with the new Eternal Summers EP, we’re going to do the occasional music review now and again. All reviews will be posted on the main blog and then placed onto the aforementioned review page for archival purposes.

-Last but not least, The Circus Practice managed to record two parts of their exceptional performance at The Water Heater from last month. You can take a look at the first one after the jump, and head over to their MySpace for the second.

Fever to Sing 2010 is Here! (EDIT: Actually it’s not, but will be soon!)

~3/26/2010 – 3/28/2010~
Fever To Sing Festival
Multiple Venues; Blacksburg,VA
Weekend Tickets $25

This weekend kicks off Fever To Sing, a DIY Blacksburg music festival that has been active since 2005. Many of Roanoke’s best local acts and musicians will be playing this year, so be sure to head over if you can make it!

(Sorry, had a bit of a time lapse there…Fever to Sing is actually NEXT weekend, not this one. We apologize for the mistake, and will make sure that Lance looks at a calendar before making post about important local events. -SR)

From the festival goals page:

The kind of media attention Virginia Tech and Blacksburg has been getting over the past couple of years is NOT all there is to this area, we’d like to be known as a peaceful and positive fun arts destination. We’d like to promote underground arts and music in the area, the quality kind of work that never gets enough attention due to lack of exposure by linking them and giving them opportunities to network with established nationally touring bands who will also be playing the festival.

The Late Virginia Summers @ The Good Cherry This Week!

The Late Virginia Summers w/Savage Knights
The Good Cherry (Forest,VA) @ 7:30 pm Sharp!
All Ages; $3

If you’re thinking of going outside the Roanoke area to get some musical kicks, I highly suggest you check out these guys. TLVS are part of the Harding St. Family, and, by extension, members of the Scenic Recovery fam as well. Savage Knights are an experimental jazz/skronk outfit from Raleigh that occasionally delve into Sonic Youth/Sun-Ra style noise freakouts. A good time to be had, certainly.
