June Calendar

Europe produces a lot of great rock n' roll these days. Typically I think of the more northerly reaches of the continent when I say such a thing, but while Giuda's most recent LP, Speaks Evil, was released by Swedish label Burning Heart, the band themselves hail from the Mediterranean shores of Italy. Considering how catchy the many great tunes on Speaks Evil actually are, there's no reason for any thoughts of Giuda to inspire any reaction other than a smile. So hey, leave it to Vinyl Conflict to bring a rad European band like this one to our humble hometown, Richmond VA. The Giuda performance at Strange Matter is set to be quite an event, and not just because of the powerful AC/DC-meets-Dictators swagger of the headliners themselves. DJ's D-FX and VIV VIV will be spinning great tunes between bands, sticking to flawless punk, oi, glam, and soul singles and giving you a break from the typical "soundman throws on a random CD that everyone ignores" between-band routine. Plus, local punky rockers The James Badfellows and Sick Bags will be doing all they can to get the crowd in the mood with some killer opening sets. Look out, all you rock n' rollers! This is gonna be a great timeľone you don't wanna miss!
