2 things about this.
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.
The only thing more awesome than witnessing some fantastic local live music is having your monies go toward helping out a genuine cause or person in need (of more than just beer and weed scrilla).
Experimental electronic music producer Darren Cunningham, under the moniker Actress, has just released his 4th full length LP, Ghettoville, on the Werkdiscs label. Over his career, Actress has accumulated labels like Techno, MicroHouse, and IDM. Despite these labels, his music isn't easily categorized, and the songs on Ghettoville are far from a club atmosphere.
The other night I stood in the cold and shared a few cigarettes with local musician and poet Ryan Kent. Best known as the singer for local metal band Gritter, Ryan has gained a small bit of notoriety with his recent series, Poems For Dead People.
