Sounds Of MACRoCk #6: Banned Books

Early April in the Western Virginia mountains, friends, there’s nothin’ finer. Well, perhaps if you throw in a weekend’s worth of great bands. Oh hey, that’s exactly what happens every year at the Mid-Atlantic College Radio Conference, otherwise known as MACRoCk. I went to my first MACRoCk last year and had such a grand ole time that I’m heading back down once again. Here’s a sampling of the bands that I’ll be taking in, and the bands you should get to know even if you’re not getting your MACRoCk on.

Noisepop. What does noisepop mean to you, kiddies? Hopefully the term conjures up frenetic, occasionally jarring guitars holding hands and frolicking hand-in-hand through sunlit fields peppered with magic rainbows with pink, possibly tripped-out kittens and almost sarcastically poppy vocals. Please refer to Philly's Banned Books for further reference, and you might want to throw on some Wonder Showzen to watch while you do.
