Hey there. Not much is new in the Dirty D. South Carolinians RUBRICS came and blasted our faces off, and Jacksonville’s AC Deathstrike assuaged our wounds with sweet, sweet pop melodies. That’s actually chronologically incorrect, cause Rubrics played after ACD, but you get the idea. Here is a sweet picture of the Taxpayers show at Peyton’s house in January, taken by Joe Mortimus Johnson IIIIIIV.
DeLand Fest as it has been affectionately dubbed by the St. Augustinians, is happening at Johnny’s Barn on May 13th. Bands that are playing:
Cop City/Chill Pillars (droney garage noise rock from south FL -http://www.myspace.com/copcitychillpillars)
The Cougs (sweet garage rock from St. Augustine – http://www.myspace.com/the-cougs)
Idiots on Ice (DeLand’s party rock and rollers, ex Soulman & Breeze)
Love Handles (Lake Worth low-fi rock/pop/drone – http://www.myspace.com/lovehandlesfl)
The Douche Crew (St. Augustine fast pop punk – http://www.facebook.com/pages/TDC/132957116756924?ref=ts)
Critter (DeLand folky pop punk – http://www.critterdeland.bandcamp.com)
and possibly more. It is quite possible that you, dear reader, do not know where Johnny’s barn is. If that’s the case, and if you’re not a dingus, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can give you the address and stuff.
Oh yeah, and I guess Critter is going on tour in like two weeks… Operation become a real band: COMMENCE!
