BAND OF THE DAY: Violet Ripken
PLACE OF DISCOVERY: Looked them up because they are playing tonight at Cafe Nola AND YOU BET YOUR BUNS IMMA BE THERE (The first time I’ll be able to see one of my 365 live, hell yah)!
WAXY-PROCLAIMED GENRE: gang of four punk meatloaf
ALBUM LISTENED TO: Wildcard
FAV SONG SO FAR: Automate Me and Ballroom (also seriously obsessed with the bass line in Wildcard)
THOUGHTS/FEELINGS: I obsessed with the guitar parts and vocal melodies. It totally feels like a punked-up new wave sound with heavy metal vocals. Very into it/very excited to see them live tonight!
CONSENSUS: The real Violet Ripken should be a fan; they are great.
