Tonight at IS, it’s Sarah White, Straight Punch to the Crotch, and someone named Billy Baritone; I have a lot of stuff to do, but I may try to make it out for that one.


At the Tea Bazaar, it’s Ben Arthur with Bobby St. Ours (who hasn’t played here in a while … he’s good); and at Mono Loco, it’s PantherBurn and Matthew Bain;


And at Brown College, there’s a Battle of the Bands. It features five bands, one of whom (Lovecrumbs) is the recent winner of the much-coveted “Worst Band in Charlottesville” award. The other four acts are, to my knowledge, actually good and worthwhile, even though they all have very, very, very silly band names:  Your Spirit Animal in the Unreal City, Verything, Putting Stuff in Stuff, and Uncle Jemima. I’ve heard three of those acts and appreciated them each, despite the unweildy cringe-inducing pseudonyms.  Maybe the winners can get awarded a new band name? Come on, they deserve it.

    You, sir, are nothing but a big fat meanie! Someday, Lovecrumbs won’t need to hire people to tell us we’re cool, and then you’ll be sorry. Also, YSAUCE’s real name is Cookies, which is as far from silliness as names get, so put that in your pipe and… think about it.

    Lovecrumbs should be proud, they’ve already got haters!
