Sterling, Virginia punk rock band pg.99
is returning for a live performance at this summer’s Best Friends Day in Richmond, Virginia. Also known as pageninetynine
, the influential group is reuniting after an 8 year absence of activity to perform their seminal album “document #8” in its entirety.
Taking place from August 18th to the 21st this year, Best Friends Day is an annual event that started as a single day and has evolved into a weekend-long festival based on taking a break from the stresses of the world to just hang out and have a good time with your friends. When asked why they are reuniting now, pg.99
guitarist Mike Taylor responded with:
"After a few reunion offers in recent months, it kind of just got us thinking that it would be fun to play those songs again, and if we were ever going to do it again, that now would be the time… We felt Richmond would be great place to do a reunion because of pg.99
's early involvement with that area and its punk scene in the late nineties.”
The Best Friends Day organizers are thrilled to have pageninetynine
on the bill celebrating BFD’s 10th year as an event, and are announcing them as the first band confirmed for the weekend: “When we initially started planning Best Friends Day 10, we wanted to have a killer band that could share this milestone year with us, and nothing hits home better than one of Virginia’s best DIY bands ever,” says organizer Curtis Grimstead. “I couldn’t be more excited about having pg.99
reunite for Best Friends Day 10.”
Formed in 1998, pageninetynine
steadily gained notoriety as almost a cult of a band, with upwards of 8 people performing at the peak membership. With a menacing sound combining a wide variety of heavy/punk genres,pageninetynine
was renown for their powerful and passionate live performances. In their five years of prolific activity they released 14 records and played over 300 live shows, earning them a formidable reputation and widespread dedicated following.
Since disbanding in 2003 the many members of pg.99
have gone on to form a slew of bands, including but not limited toPygmy Lush, Ghastly City Sleep, Tideland, Malady
and more. While active, the band released albums with Robotic Empire, Reptilian, Electric Human Project, The Perpetual Motion Macine, Magic Bullet, Witching Hour and many others.http://roboticempirenews.blogspot.com/2011/02/pg99-to-reunite-and-perform-document-8.html

What Does Google's Subtle Censorship Say About Who We Are?
Even if we were to pretend that all torrent downloads were illegal, Google’s blocking has raised some interesting questions about its relationship with potentially criminal activities. Last I checked, making an explosive is a pretty serious crime; but when we type ‘how to make a bomb’ in the search bar, Google suggests ‘out of household items’ to complete the phrase. Write ‘where to buy drugs’ and ‘where to buy crack in D.C.’ is the instant result. Enter ‘how to kill a person’ and ‘and get away with it’ is what Google recommends. Gosh, it’s really swell of Google to do its part to shut down all of the menacing downloading out there! I’m all for the freedom of potentially scandalous, even illegal information, but shouldn’t it be consistent? Autocomplete has even blocked the phrase ‘Google and crime.’
Or what about autocomplete’s questionable assistance with what may be legal, but still offensive terms? Type in ‘Asians have’ and autocomplete is right there with ‘no souls.’ Try ‘Jews have’ instead and ‘horns’ is the result that the search giant recommends. Enter ’Black people are’ and Google spits out ’lazy.’ And why do we get help with ‘sexual predators’ but not ‘sexual positions’? There are no obvious answers.
