“Enjoy the Silence”

3:40 AM – Just got home from the Wall of Sound Festival in Fredricksburg. Man, what a long day but oh what a treat!

We left at 11:30 AM for this – rocked out for a good 13 hours – highlights were DC’s own Skydivers, Plumeri, Alcian Blue, Stellarscope, Ceremony, and A Place To Bury Strangers. Those last four bands rocked that crappy little Fredricksburg dive like they were playing in a major sports arena – serious guitar muscle!

Especially local boys Ceremony’s cover of Depeche Mode’s “Enjoy the Silence!”

The whole experience was a totally worth-while music marathon. Let’s hope for one of these next year!

I am still hoping for a bootleg of Ceremony's epic DM cover.
