June 30th, 2008 · Comments Off on Nailgun All-Stars on WTJU: Wowsville & Mayhem · By

It was an all-star line-up on WTJU last night; all 3 nailgun writers in the studio for Radio Wowsville and The Eclectic Mayhem. I think we were all pretty tired by the end of it (it’s been a long weekend), but it was a lot of fun. Check out the playlists below:

I must atone for my transgressions:  the name of the band is actually CORSAIR (singular) rather than THE CORSAIRS.  Apparently everyone has been getting it wrong and I can’t help but feel that Nailgun is partially responsible.  I thought that it was like they were all in a band and each one of them was […]

Friday Night’s show / Buck Gooter interview

June 26th, 2008 · Comments Off on Friday Night’s show / Buck Gooter interview · By

There’s a pretty awesome line-up playing at Dust on Friday night: Corsairs are a new 70’s-rock /metal-style act, led by Marie from Mass Sabbath. The Wiles are some nice semi-local boys who do 20-min surf-rock jams. Buck Gooter are a confounding and compelling two-headed, multigenerational musical monstrosity from Harrisonburg. Articulate Chewbacca is another new band […]

If you’re in the dancing mood, Adam from The Nice Jenkins tells us that DJ Steve Richmond, who I hear rocked ’80s Prom, will be spinning tunes tonight at Michael’s Bistro. Adam himself will be slinging drinks at the bar. Stop by and say hi. It’s free and should start around 10ish.

June 25th, 2008 · 2 Comments · By

There’s going to be a pretty sweet show at the Tea House tonight.  I don’t know much about Sharron Kraus or United Bible Studies, but I’ve heard good things about both and I’m eager to see them play. …however, the main reason I’m excited about the show is that I’m totally thrilled to see Kohoutek […]
