Looking at the new, improved Positive Force web site (be sure to check out the "Flyer" section) sent me into a little nostalgia trip about the days when DC Space was still around, the 9:30 club was in Chinatown, and I could stay up past midnight on a regular basis. Some friends and I followed the DC gothic/alternative band Strange Boutique. We were regulars at their shows to the point where we got invited to an after-party with the band, but alas, it was a school night. Before Strange Boutique existed, some of the members were in Beefeater. Beefeater was a vegan hardcore band. Hence, I think their name is a stroke of brilliance.
