they had their noses in the air, pretending that they cared about our scene:
Light posting today, as I'm crashing on a react piece about the killing of Imad Mughniyeh. But a quick word about The Surge. Yesterday I wrote about two of our allies, the Stalking Horses and the City Veins.

Today, meet two more. Gestures is the full Kriston Capps experience. Like Kriston, this drums-and-brass combo is a beautiful, insouciant cacophony. From The Depths rises from the, uh, depths of two of my favorite hardcore bands, Catharsis and Requiem, and features an old and dear friend of mine, who sang for both. They'll be playing in DC on March 7 at St. Stephens Church, and I, for one, can't wait. Storm heaven!

Soon enough The Surge will play with both bands. Details as we create them.
