Wall of Soundfest was the smooth product of a lot of hard
work by Fredericksburg band The Offering and a few of their local friends.
Similar in style to
Philadelphia’s recent Popnoise Festival, the concert not only brought together
fourteen bands from around the country, it also managed to draw some devoted
shoegazer fans to Virginia from hundreds of miles away. Sadly I didn’t catch
every band, but some of the ones I did hear literally blew my mind...
