Absolute Punk Lovin’ on Some SC Bands Lately

The Valkyrie from Charleston and Sent By Ravens from uhhh… Jacksonville Florida according to Myspace are going out on tour together and are hitting up The Channel in Greenville tomorrow for what should be a great show.  I am linking you to the Sent By Ravens Purevolume account because on there they still have Florence, SC listed as their hometown.

This is a very Carolina friendly tour, so everyone should be able to go out to at least one of these shows.  It is good to see Sent By Ravens working so hard to get to the next level.  According to their Myspace they are finding out how much it can cost to make it as a band, touring and traveling to showcases.  I just wish we could get them to change their Myspace to Jacksonville/Florence….maybe??  That would be cool and might help all of those nationwide listeners that are getting linked from Absolutepunk to realize that SC does have some pretty good bands from here.

If you haven’t listened to The Valkyrie yet they are one of SC’s best bands right now.  I don’t really know much about those guys besides the fact that they have great songs and great recordings.

Maybe Absolute Punk will have some love for another SC band soon??? Baumer had an Absolute Exclusive Download maybe someone else will :)  Rumorsssssssss
