Brandon and I were shopping for Blingo prizes earlier and stopped by our dear friend (his girlfriend) Diana at Quirk Gallery. There’s a new record shop, Steady Sounds, that just opened across the street so Brandon and I went to check it out. Our friend Drew is one of the co-owners and was working today. He asked if we had heard this band called “Screaming Females,” neither of us (well maybe Brandon I don’t know) had and he put their newest record on. Immediately it sounded super catchy and I was interested. I usually like to check out some of the other tracks on records before I purchase anything. When I came home I was searching everywhere for an mp3 version of the record, could not find their new one anywhere. So I just went back up there and purchased it.
But while searching for their record I ran across some tour dates, and they just played in Richmond LAST MONTH. Ugh I need to pay more attention to local shows and not just assume everything is going to be metal or hardcore. Although I feel like I’ve heard of this band before but was probably turned off by the name. Shame on me. Lesson learned.
They are playing Charlottesville October 16th, so if we don’t end up doing the Renn Faire that day who wants to go?
