I recently had the pleasure of seeing a really excellent touring band turn heads at a Richmond house show. Habitat, of New Orleans, writes wonderfully energetic, jangly indie pop tunes that they play with the technical proficiency and variety of a math rock band. The band is made up of two guitarists and one extremely talented (let me emphasize) and versatile drummer. Swirling guitars entwine in echoing harmonies with a sort of post rock tone, but the attitude is more celebratory than reflective.

Demos can be found here, but they hardly do the band justice, so, if you get the chance, catch these guys on their east coast tour. Richmond-ites who missed them on Monday can catch them again on June 2nd @ the Camel with Night Idea, Houdan the Mystic, and Brother Wolf

Tom Waits - Goin’ Out West

Well I know karate, voodoo too. I’m gonna make myself available to you. I don’t need no make up, I got real scars. I got hair on my chest. I look good without a shirt.

Here’s some grainy footage I took of new Richmond blokes, Gunboat @ the School House. This self confessed no-wave band is more post punk than anything. A tight rhythm section holds the songs together, making room for guitar antics a-plenty. This was their first show with a vocalist, who ad-libbed screams and punk groans through a Boss DD-4, creating this layered, swirling texture that filled gaps in the somewhat minimal instrumentation. It’s nice to see a band that could fit a punk/hardcore bill as easily as an indie one.

Gunboat features members of RVA favorites Young Adult Fiction - Matt Timko (guitar) and Ben Harsel (bass), as well as some guys who have been in a bunch of now defunct punk bands, most notably the noisy MOMs - Sam Roberts (drums) and Daniel Berti (vocals). Keep an eye on them. They’re still in their infancy, but a demo is forthcoming. http://www.facebook.com/gunboatrva

Since somebody was curious about the “BPRD: Hell on Earth - Return of the Master” cover by Mike Mignola, apparently Mike’s been doing variant covers for each series (I think it’s an anniversery year for Hellboy?) depicting these characters going up against classic movie monsters (and Nessie). Figured I’d share a few more of them.

(As much as I love Mignola’s output, I can’t tell you how disappointed I was to learn that the next Lord Baltimore series would not feature a face off against King Kong.)

This is pretty cool - a photographer and prosthetic artist collaborate to recreate Charles Burns’ portrait drawings from “Black Hole.”

Another video of the band I’m in, Mammals, @ the wonderful, musty basement space that is the RVA “School House.” (aka “Pleasure Dungeon”, “Rape Cave”, yadda yadda) Shows there are always fun and well attended, even if the space is cramped (part of the “charm”, I guess?).    

 If you like this, there are more videos here and a demo here.
