“Thus Always to Tyrants”
Yup. That’s what that Latin at the bottom of the VA flag stands for.
Here we go:
Foo Fighters – Arlandria
Arlandria is a strange smoshing of a place between Alexandria and Arlington. It’s also where Dave Grohl, leader of the Foo Fighters grew up.
Pharrell Williams – Freedom
Pharrell has created so much in his lifetime, from his solo work to producing with the Neptunes to his band NERD. He’s worked with everyone from Usher to J Balvin.
Ella Fitzgerald – Summertime
The First Lady Of Song was born in VA, raised in NY.
The Kindling Kind
So I know these folks are from Richmond. And that’s it. Her voice is quite lovely, as well.
Timbaland & Missy Elliot – Up Jumps Da Boogie
Double VA love!
Negative Gemini – Don’t Worry Bout The F*** I’m Doing
Atmospheric and kinda strange.
The Downtown Fiction – I Just Wanna Run
Why is this song so catchy??
Seven Mary Three – Cumbersome
The nineties were a beautiful time.
My Darling Fury – Satisfied
Such a mellow groove from such an aggressive sounding band name.
SOJA – True Love
Full Name: Soldiers Of Jah Army.
Description: Reggae band based in Arlington.
Screen Vinyl Image – Night Trip
Whoa, careful guys, the music vid for this one is a little tough on the eyes…
Imaginary Sons – Let It Beer
This is actually a video of the full album. Woot. Richmond band.
People’s Blues of Richmond – Quit Or Die
I feel like these guys would be a helluva lot of fun to see live.
Robert Cray – Smoking Gun
This 5 time Grammy winner technically was born in Georgia, BUT he didn’t start his first band until his family moved him tooooo: Virginia.
Broadside – Come &Go
“…Fell for you that summer on the east coast…”
