All the garage-rockers and closet poppers in my newsfeeds have been abuzz about Dick Divers for weeks now. And Spider Bags, of course, are Rock And Roll, period.

ANTiSEEN, Old Codger, Kiff
The Maywood, Raleigh
All this, plus Gouge Wrestling.

ANTiSEEN have flown the Confederate Battle Flag (or as it was known colloquially for decades in the South until recently, simply the "Rebel Flag") off & on for years. They're a bunch of self-described disaffected misfit rednecks from Charlotte, but I don't think they're particularly racist. I'd be curious to hear what Jeff Clayton has to say from the stage about recent events. Lord knows I think he'd support any & all attempts to stick it to The Man, especially the hypocritical politician Man.
