Here's an interesting tidbit from the internet: apparently Dave Grohl has joined with Mike Dean and Reed Mullin of legendary North Carolina hardcore group Corrosion Of Conformity to form a studio supergroup called Teenage Time Killer. They've brought a ton of high-profile guest stars into the fold as well, including RVA hardcore/metal screamers Randy Blythe (Lamb Of God) and Tony Foresta (Municipal Waste).

Wonderland Presents Little Heavy Rebel Weekend, featuring, Day 1: The Recently Deceased (pictured above), JJ Damage And The Bandits, Reverend D-Ray And The Shockers; Day 2: The Gojira Experiment, Tex Railer's Doomtown, The Creep-A-Zoids @ Wonderland - $5 per show
Richmond's home for raging punk, metal, and psychobilly sounds can seem a bit out of place amidst the decadent dance-party lifestyle that grips Shockoe Bottom these days, but Wonderland doesn't let that bother them. This outstanding dive bar continues to represent for the out of control rock n' roll lifestyle, and they're making this post-Valentine's Day weekend a special occasion where that's concerned with a two-night extravaganza known as the Little Heavy Rebel Weekend!
Started as catchphrase among friends, the term YERB! has come to stand for Young Entertainers Righteously Being, and the group is set to embody their name now more than ever at a day long music festival on March 1st.

Fresh from the PR stream, we've got scant details on two exciting new releases - 757's Pharrell (does he still claim VA Beach?) and Punk-rock duo Japanther.
We're seeing pictures of the above billboard getting shared around on Facebook, and they appear to be legit.
The scene at Strange Matter last Sunday night, where Into It. Over It., The World Is A Beautiful Place And I Am No Longer Afraid To Die, A Great Big Pile Of Leaves, and Sundials played an all-ages show, was familiar to me. But it wasn't much like anything I've seen in a long time.
