It was brought to our attention that WVRockscene recently turned five years old or something. Cool! Right?
But before that first post in Jan. 2008, before thegazz.com’s ill-fated, ultimately doomed local music blog, an endeavor that would ultimately never be made up for by its founder, there was us rockin’ out freaky, weird obscure acts that people may not be keen to. Or, bands or projects that rock, but might not be playing out or releasing material, whatever.
Whatever platform or medium (print/online) was utilized, we’re proud of covering so many of these kinds of non-traditional bands or performers over the years.
We’re going to continue that in 2013, that’s for sure.*
We’re compiling a list, a handful of maybe obscure acts or dudes or projects that are awesome in nature to cover, we’re going to write it down on a piece of paper and then ball it up and throw it in the trash.
Because we already know pretty much what and who we wanna cover, it’s just a matter of when. It’s great thinking that there could be someone or some band around here recording something ghetto-style that could turn into a song we love.
Time goes by fast, but we here at rockscene don’t change. Or wait, is it the more things change the more they stay the same?
Either way, barring injury or Virginarockscene hitting us hard with denial of service attacks, we’re gonna keep covering bands we like and hopefully up the awesomeness around here.
