I want to thank the guys of Virginia Coalition for taking the
time to talk with me. It was great getting a chance to chat with
the guys and hang out before their show at the Paradise. We can
not wait for the next time that VACO comes to Boston. Keep your
eye up for when they come to your town, and be sure to purchase
to Go or download it from iTunes.
