The Old Ceremony at Forest Theater

I dragged myself to Chapel Hill today to see the Old Ceremony (Myspace) play an afternoon show at Forest Theater. I do mean dragged, because I spent about an hour stuck in stand-still traffic due to the work on I-40. I came really close a couple of times to just turning around and going home, but I'm glad I stuck it out, because the band put on a really great, comfortable, Sunday afternoon show. Forest Theater is an idyllic spot anyway, and the band had lots of family and friends there, with kids and dogs and elderly folks all having a good time. Check out my videos and you'll see what I mean about the kids. As soon as I turned the camera on, they all started running in front of me, and I know they were doing it on purpose because that's exactly what I would have done back when I was that age.

hi karen,
my name is josh spilker and i'm a writer with bootleg magazine in wilmington. i stumbled across your website while looking up some stuff on the band filthybird. We're looking for some new writers, and I was wondering if you'd be interested in contributing, especially since we're trying to move our coverage more outside of Wilmington, as we expand a little further in the southeast, and covering some of the triangle scene is a must.

check us out at or at our website, for some samples of what we do. The site is a little rough, we haven't officially started promoting it yet. Let me know if you'd be interested by contacting me at or Brian, the publisher/editor at

thanks--Josh Spilker
