What local band is about to make it big?

Steve Donaldson: "The solo artist I am most impressed with is Jeff Andrews. Of groups, I like Grasping at Laws. I'm just blown away by the musical talent in Charlottesville. You never know if the guy serving you coffee will be the next Dave Matthews. Charlottesville is an incubator for artistic talent."

Talice Wilkins: "The Beetnix are fu**ing amazing. They're up there with all the cutting edge hip-hop."

Karin Heide: "My group, Buckets and Batteries. We are part of the Human Adults, from New Jersey, and we're trying to spread the word about our beautiful music."
