Hi, I'm Sarasvati! I reblog things about bands I like. Sometimes I post pictures of my records or a show I attended. I live in Gainesville and FEST is my favorite time of year.

For one weekend every year, a sea of bearded, flannel-clad punk rockers in jean shorts flood the streets of Gainesville, FL. Maybe you’ve heard of Gainesville before? Bands like Less Than Jake, Against Me! and Hot Water Music were birthed in this college town turned temporary Punk Rock Mecca. Every venue in a mile radius will host a full weekend of amazing underground music. Imagine if SXSW or CMJ’s drunken friend told everyone to shut up and put on a Dillinger Four record. That is The Fest in a nutshell.
This is great
Somos have signed to No Sleep Records for the release of a 7” and LP coming in 2015. You can read what the band said about the signing below.
233. Words Written Over Coffee-The Riot Before
I cried to god but god did not respond. Like a barrel chested strongman I suspended disbelief. I held it high over my head though all the weight was staggering. But legs buckled and muscles burned, in came gravity. I dropped it all, faced what I’d been avoiding. For many years I walked that road, for many years I tried. So earnestly, I sought the relationship advertised. But my empty hands and my empty heart could no longer be denied. Oh yeah I quit, I forfeit eternal life.
