Brandon TILL DEAD here with a scene report from Fist City, Richmond, VA. We’ve got a lot of good things going on here this year. Some new bands like End It Quick, Government Warning, Vile Truth, and First Failure are in the works and/or getting their name out as we speak. A lot of the good shows coming up or having gone by are/were not necessarily in Richmond, but more so in the surrounding areas, such as: VA Beach, Arlington/DC, and Harrisonburg.

Spring Break Fest 2005 is on its way here on March 5th with bands The Spark, The First Step, Kill Your Idols, End It Quick, Direct Control, Cold World, and other well known hardcore acts from all over. Recently, Blacklisted and Cold World played VA Beach at a club called Attitudez and that show was fucking phenomenal. Municipal Waste will be playing in a couple of days with The Asshole Parade at a skating rink…other than that, not many shows are being booked by anyone other than me.  I’ve got a show coming up in April in Richmond for Never Enough (from MD) and Instilled (from GA)’s tour.

As far as Richmond bands go, DTN is planning on touring Europe this summer, and End It Quick is hoping to tour the West Coast. Other than that, most of the bands around here are newer and are still working on demo material or first LPs. We recently lost one of our most well-respected bands, Murder Weapon, and have had to rebuild a lot of our hardcore scene due to the fact that there aren’t very many hardcore bands in Richmond at the present moment, but be on the fucking look out. Wait for First Failure and Government Warning to come out of the woodworks. Keep an ear out, and if you have any questions, contact me @ TylerDurden1800 (AIM) or [email protected] (e-mail). Thanks a lot everyone, and keep me posted.
