You Can’t Stop What’s Coming: The Neon Nihilism Of The Departed, No Country For Old Men and There Will Be Blood

I remember it like it was yesterday, sitting in my dissertation supervisor’s office explaining my idea. I’d already delivered essays on…
I honestly don’t know why the deputy in court this morning tried to illegally prevent us from drawing the court proceedings….

I am selling this 16.5 x 20 inch print titled “Tybee Island” for $75, or best offer. It comes matted & framed.
Jon and Kyle, much love. Been too long since I’ve been to one of their shows. If you haven’t seen these guys play live, you’re doing Richmond wrong.
A review of the band. Thanks a lot!
Navi is a new Richmond duo that deserves some attention. I had the pleasure of seeing them rip a little loft space a new asshole last week, with noisy, spastic jams reminiscent of Lightning Bolt. They pull off a thicker sound than most two pieces due to the guitarist’s heavy pedal pushing. Octave fx galore rattle your guts/nuts. The real kicker here is the exceptional drumming, though. The guy is something like 18 and I can safely say that he’s the most impressive drummer that I can claim to know personally. He operates on all cylinders constantly, thrashing around like some kind of spaghetti noodle, animal-from-the-muppets character while remaining startlingly precise. Single bass pedal. Does he have three feet or something?
Anyway, if you see these guys on a bill around town or on proboards, get on it. They’re both heavy/energetic enough and technically impressive/mathy enough to satisfy people from all walks. The recordings I’ve linked don’t do them justice, so it’s better just to track down their next show. Former member of Roy G Biv + Richmond’s answer to Brian Chippendale.
It’s a band that needs reviewing! You guys rip.
This is a collaborative art show I had at The Bridge Progressive Arts Initiative three years ago. I’m going to gloat for a minute here and mention that the photo they used to promote it is mine.
This art show was during a really cool time in my life; I was really creative, working really hard, also being really lame and angsty—but I digress.
This art show was fucking rad if only for one reason: Giant. Tiger. Moon. Bounce. Yeah, come for the art, stay for the moon bounce. If you want to check out photos from the opening, click here, and if you want to catch a glimpse of me jumping around in the tiger, you can click here.
If this Co-Op takes off, I want it to have all this and more. More creativity. More gnarly artists. Better art. Better stories waiting to be told. And all of the moon bounces.
