Reminder - Cherry Bomb Saturday!!

This is just a friendly reminder that our next Cherry Bomb dance night is TOMORROW, Saturday the 30th!!

I know we're all getting excited (especially since we had to cancel the last one!), and we've made a pact to be there snow or no snow! So if those inches have accumulated, pull on those snow boots and come out - then warm yourself up with some amazing tunes on the dance floor!

THURSDAY night - The Cosmic Hum

Come out and join Sara from Cherry Bomb and Greg Darden for the Cosmic Hum THIS Thursday night, January 21st, at Cous Cous!

Fill up your ears with yesterday's sounds from near & far picked lovingly from our record collections: psyched-up, fuzzed-out, from the catchy old pop to the spacey and mellow, whatever we can think of and wherever we can go!

We'll even be trying out our own liquid light projections to add colorful visual effects to the music, so you don't want to miss it!

Can't wait to see you there!

Cherry Bomb at Cous Cous 1/30

We missed out on spinning last month at the Nile due to buckets of snow, but weather won't stop us from bringing the dance party next Saturday, January 30th to Cous Cous!

In addition to most of our regular Cherry Bomb girls, we will feature a special guest DJ - Richmond's Lauren Amiss of Vinyl Conflict and No Way Records! We are excited to welcome our first guest DJ and plan on inviting more ladies to join us throughout 2010!

See you next Saturday!

Sara's Pick of the Week

I think I must have watched this video ten times now (thanks for finding it, Greg!).

As if I needed a reason to love Stevie Nicks even more than I already did, this footage of her backstage singing along with a demo of her song Wild Heart (starts after 0:25, song at 1:10) while getting her makeup done seriously sealed the deal: she's amazing. Not to mention I like this stripped-down version of the song better than the one on the album!

Yes, love indeed.

Leah's Pick of the Week

A few of us Cherry Bombers are fans of Antoine & le Problèmes. As a bonafide germaphobe, there are very few things that could ever convince me to consider hanging out in a junkyard. This video is one of them.

Karaoke Queen

new years day ended by singing karaoke with some friends. i got really excited to do karaoke queen by catatonia, then realized this wasn't britain and this song would not be on the song list for karaoke at a country and western bar in virginia. i ended up doing kelly clarkson's since u been gone, taylor swift's love story and randy travis's forever and ever amen but got really psyched to hear some catatonia. i wish i could share like, 20 of their songs here, but this is a nice range including faster, slower and even a duet from the band space featuring the singer of catatonia, cerys metthews. here:
