as for the no place to have shows in parkersburg thing, in a few months...i will be in the position to change that. belly of the beast v2.0 coming soon. i promise.

I hope you guys don't think I was talking about you or the Pburg scene. All that shit throwing was totally directed at the Morgantown hipster collective.



Regardless, this thread has made me realize just how pointless it is to be here at reminisce-WV.com/iwishwewereallstillinhighschoolagain, so this is my last post and I don't even know why I'm even bothering to make a point of it. So in conclusion, this is stupid, I'm fucking out.


No man I didn't think you were talking about me or anything like that. Hell, hardly anyone in this area has ever seen a band I've played in. I know you weren't trying to start anything and I know that nobody else was either. I just wanted to state that I liked playing shows in front of my friends/people who already knew what we were about. I didn't care to turn people on to the music. The songs/20 seconds of randomness were created specifically for my bands' own enjoyment. Obviously that didn't quite work out since shows we've played generally only saw 10-15 people at most. But it's all good. Nobody should have any hard feelings over this discussion, seriously. haha

that's exactly what i was saying. i liked playing to people who knew me or who at least knew what i was about and what my band was about.

Dave Rave is the biggest electronic music dance party in Southern Ohio. We are based in Athens, Ohio located just 45 minutes from Parkersburg. We throw all types of electronic music events in Athens and throughout the region.

We are throwing our first event event in Marietta at The Adelphia on 4/5, and we'd love to see some folks from Parkersburg.

As a new member to this forum, I can't post links, but look up "Dave Rave" on Facebook to find out more about our events.
