Don't forget about the Record Release show Wednesday night
D.C.’s punk rock vandals The NVs has charmed the District with its brazen offerings since 2011. The quartet-comprised of vocalist Sal Go, guitarist Scott Wilson, bassist Lucas Oswalt and drummer Nathan Armstrong-recently unveiled a debut EP last fall, and will celebrate its release at DC9 this Wednesday. Before the show, I had the chance to chat with Sal about the group’s start, the new EP and future plans.
The NVs are playing their record release party this Wednesday at DC9 with Cheap Time.
Heather and Bobby from The Hussy were passing through Brooklyn last week with a little band called Nobunny. It was one of the sold out shows they were playing supporting that bad ass up and down the east coast and even shared the stage with Mr. No at Baby's All Right, I witnessed that freaking debauchery with my own forever scarred eyes. It's awesome to see a band that's been so great from the very first single and I get equally excited when so many other people start to see it too. Why am I even talking about Bobby and the Hussy in this post? Because in addition to running his label, Kind Turkey, Bobby has been recording and mixing his own records and this single from Fire Retarded (which I instinctually spell 'reatarded') he ended up playing guitar on and joined the freaking band for a tour and maybe for good(!) last month. I'm sure the rest of these guys are great too but Bobby's involvement had me reaching to throw this on the turntable the minute I opened it up.

Come on bands and labels, everyone is slacking on sending us cool rock n roll swag. We need records to list and review.
Best Freeby: The Xrays Calendar - The Xrays took the time to create a cool calendar with Live Pics of the band and pics of their record covers. Pretty sweet.
Best Demo: Burnt Thrones Club
Burnt Thrones Club is a two piece rock n roll outfit from Berkeley and rock they do. They play a loud noisy fast rock n roll with a lot of blues thrown in the mix. This stuff is really good. Sounds a lot like the early rock n roll releases that Big Neck Records put out early on in the labels lifestyle. Stuff like Sagger, Bantam Rooster, and Blacks. If we weren't so booked up with releases this year I would be all over this.
