Taking a Break from Breaking my Legs...
After an unnecessarily long break, the Ville is back in action. There have been a few great shows that I wish I had highlighted- look for them in an upcoming new section called "Shows Long Past That Rocked My Ass."
Check out the many-band festival Brostock, this Saturday, Feb. 10, at 1982. The show has been organized, promoted and produced by Battle! and Borealis, and features many local hardcore, screamo and metal acts.
I was originally going to be playing in the show; it was to be the debut of the added musicians "the st.pete players" to round-out the quigley sound. We were very excited to be playing Brostock, despite our dissimilar musical style to the rest of the bands, and looked forward to opening for everyone with a wink and a smile. Then, of course, we would step aside with our folksy-surfy-acoustic jams for the descent into hardcore and metal. Unfortunately, due to "venue considerations" were were told last week we were cut from the show.
But who cares!? Brostock will rock nonetheless. See you there!
