We are losing a member of our music family today, The Blue Nile in Harrisonburg, Virginia is closing. Aside from serving Ethiopian food, the basement served up the loudest metal in the Shenandoah Valley. 

I remember the first time I went to the Nile, it was during Macrock and I asked my friend Becky where the good metal was. “See all those guys in black T-shirts and beards? Follow them to the Blue Nile,” she said, pointing across court square to a single-file line of metal dudes. 

Shenandoah Valley metal heroes Valkyrie made the Nile their home venue, and every show they played was like a family reunion. I’ll miss those shows. 

Pictured here from the top, The James Badfellows, Magrudergrind, a Macrock pit, Pete Adams from Valkyrie, the smoking deck and Bible of the Devil. 

R.I.P. Blue Nile.

Friday I’ll be heading back out here to the Green Bank Telescope to photograph the annual deer hunt on film. This place is amazing.
