Another expectation shattering weekend is in the books. I can’t tell you how stoked we all are over the turn out and response to these shows. Major thanks to all the folks that have made it the experience that it has been. We’ve been lucky to play with a really solid set of bands, too. If you’re looking for new (to you or in general) music start with any these: Gifts from Enola, Slow Dance, Equestrians, You’re Jovian, Glass Pennies, SW/MM/NG, Greylines.
Special mention to the dudes that run The Shaq. I’ve played a lot of DIY spaces that have had weird, creepy vibes or been generally unseemly but this spot is well organized and well run. Good work VB.
We should have some more dates up in a week or two. Also, I’m told new band photos are in the works since we have a new lineup. So if you’re into dudes staring, scowling, and or smiling you’re in luck!

Funky butt loving the Belmont show was amazing! Thanks so so much to everybody who came out and to Monrovia and Seamonster for playing and being awesome. Truly one of the better shows we’ve ever played.
To celebrate the excellent show and the world not ending… we’re playing tomorrow January 4th at the Jewish Mother in Norfolk. $7 starts at 9PM and 3 other (insert positive adjective of choice) bands are playing. Equestrians, Slow Dance, & Gifts From Enola. None of these bands are to be missed so don’t dilly-dally.
P. S. We’re also playing an all ages show with a bunch of good bands on Sunday.

Stay tuned to this website for pertinent news updates on new shows, new songs and a possible explanation what of happened over the past year. Stay tuned to twitter & facebook for stupid jokes and events you’ll reply to with “maybe.”
As always, we Love you folks. Thanks for caring. Be good to each other.

Firstly, I’m rewinding back to the Gallery 5 show in Richmond. Thanks to everybody who came out on a rainy, nasty Wednesday to hang out. It was totally worth going in to work the next morning on 5 hours sleep. We’ll see you lovely citizens of Richmond again Sept 16th at the Camel.
Secondly, we got a last minute show at Warren Wilson College in Swannanoa, NC (outside Asheville) last Saturday. I used to go out that way all the time till I got to high school and my family stopped going on vacations. It is absolutely gorgeous there and I swear the air is fresher than anywhere else I’ve been. Which is good because we played outside, next to a soccer field in a clearing on the edge of a forest at sundown. Beautiful. I can’t express my joy at being able to play music in the great outdoors. Don’t get me wrong I like playing smaller clubs and such, but I miss the sun working indoors. I also miss the stars living in a pseudo city and the stars here were incredible. We also got to make s’mores. It was all the fun of camping without having to sleep on rocks. Not to mention, WWC is a really interesting school. If you don’t know about it I recommend you look it up because I don’t think I can properly explain it in this forum, but if you’re into sustainability be prepared to geek out. Anyways, they have a pretty free spirited and adventurous student body which was exemplified by their fire spinning club. That’s right, during the third band there was a simultaneous performance by the school’s FIRE SPINNING CLUB! ON A MOUNTAIN! The day was so enjoyable I wouldn’t have cared if everybody hated our set. Fortunately, that was not the case and we’re working on getting back there this Spring. Special thanks to Tim for getting us on the bill. Also, thanks to the girls from EcoDorm for making the excellent decision to watch The Princess Bride and letting me borrow that crucial afghan blanket.
Finally, we got a bunch of stuff already booked as you can see from our calendar, but we have a lot of really cool stuff pending so stay tuned for some potentially exciting news. Unless it doesn’t happen. If that is the case just forget I said anything at all.
