Twisted G is most definitely not trapped in the closet

Ryan Chavez of SuperUnison sounds a bit less circumspect. "I'm in Sound Exchange every single week, not just selling tickets or putting up posters, but buying records there. And it really sucks for those guys. I also feel really bad that they're having to cover the loss for us, but they volunteered to do it and we've got our own business to run, so…"

As for the thieves, who mysteriously chose not to steal tickets for upcoming shows by Anti-Flag and Mogwai, Chavez has this to say: "I'm not sure they knew exactly the worth of those tickets. It's not like two more little stacks of paper were gonna weigh them down so much that they weren't gonna be able to run away from the scene of the crime."

If this incident teaches us anything, it's that the old adage is true: Everyone's a critic. Even thieving scumbags. -- Scott Faingold

BETWEEN THE CRACKS

Band name: Before…There Was Rosalyn

Web site: www.myspace.com/beforetherewasrosalyn

Personnel: Patrick (guitar), Carlos (vocals), Sam (drums), Jeremy (guitar)

What's in a name, particularly yours? Rosalyn was loved by Romeo long before he ever laid eyes on Juliet. It's a personal ode to heartbreak, and to circumstance. A reminder to stay true to oneself.

When did you form? We recently had our first birthday on December 30.

Releases/discography: We are currently working on our seven-track debut EP entitled The Past and All Its Promises, which should be out later this year. We currently have two songs from the CD available for download on our MySpace player.

Who or what do you think you sound like?Most definitely like making love to a cactus.

What artists have had the biggest impact on you? Carlos: Flyleaf has had more to do with who I am as a person than almost any other band on the planet.

How do you pay the bills? What is your day job?Well, I work with submersible pumps that are sometimes used for the city's drinking water, and I do a little bit of carpentry. Sam works in an office, while Jeremy and Patrick work construction.

Who would play you in the screen adaptation of your life? Oh, wow, I'd have to say Skeet Ulrich because I loved him in Scream, and someone once told me I kind of resembled him. I really don't.

What's the biggest misconception about you or your band? That we are any kind of tough: We are sensitive and girly, even though some of us would not like to admit it.

See them at: Fitzgerald's, 2706 White Oak Drive, Friday, January 27.
