2016, meh


Come and check out the VVers while they say good riddance to 2016 at everyone's favorite coffee shop/record store/hang spot, Bump 'n Grind.  Kick back for a coffee or a pregame beverage before the night gets rowdy.

Music and Art, Living Together in Harmony

Seen at Artomatic 2016 in Potomac, Maryland.  A classy little gallery set up with a suitcase turntable and box of beat-up records to listen to (in this case, a crackly Meters single) while you admire some sharp stencil artwork.  The artist write-up in the gallery space was simple.  To paraphrase: these records look like hell, but play fine; enjoy them before they get turned into art.

This VVer had a genuinely good time at the show, particularly the artist's concept of giving the viewer some quality time with rescued vinyl that he will eventually transform.  Way to vagabond Greg Benge; quality work.
