BB Kings is a shitty place to see a show but it's hard to beat that billing for tonight

4:31 has either never heard Jimmy Herring or he is not a musician. Either way, he is misinformed and would do well to attend the recommended show.

Both Jimmy Herring and Victor Wooten are crazy talented, but expecting your average reader of BV to get what they're doing is asking a bit much I think. Live and let live (but for the record, that show will be hot as fuck).

I came all the way in from Long Island for the last Converge show, and what do you know--left my tickets in a different pair of cargo shorts. I was a sad bro that night.

The site was so nice, I found out about a lot of great things. I like the way you make your blog posts. Keep up the good work and may you gain success in the long run.

One thing is certain - I will never book a tour or buy soap from a SPAM post on BV.

Keep it up folks, yer dern GREAT!

Interesting take on this issue. I for one have seen many twists on this and can often spot the holes in the argument however, on this occasion I believed your writing is such that everyone should be in agreement with this. Thank you for sharing it with us.

8:45 is a freaking poet - a trifecta of sausage-Jr-Varsity (e.g. HC) stereotypes all in one compact believable sentence. Simply brilliant. Bravo, my good man!

8:59- you are easily impressed. You obviously haven't seen the audience for Converge over the last several years.
