RICHMOND MUSIC NEWS!!!

i decided that i should start putting some information on here about whats going on in the richmond scene here...kind of a scene report. i'll probably list SOME shows but only local and news about clubs and bands and maybe even some reviews...
ok...so like...here's the news...

ummm...a couple of bands have recently broken up...very sad...yes i know...knuckle hed and burn witch burn probably the main ones. but a sorta local band has recently formed and i saw them for the first time oct 18th. they were viva. formed from a part of swank. they were amazing. sort of an indie rock sound with a little bit of funk. almost similar to fugazi at times...really good stuff. i have no idea when they formed...but i think they are pretty much new.
they had some really distorted parts with some long clean pieces mixed in. i am a fan of long songs...so they were really good. cuz some of their songs were probably close to 10 mins. either that or just like...i lost myself or something weird like that. i dunno...i'm weird like that. but they were really good. oh well.

ok...i'm not sure if i'm allowed to say this one or not...but i am...ok...anyone remember the worlds only wesley willis tribute band, slow car fast car? they are possibly getting back together. i'm not positive about this...but its something that kinda popped into jordan and ian's head one day. oh well.
