Photographs of Virginia Coalition, 2003-
by Tim Darling             (See more photo projects)

I met Virginia Coalition (Vaco) through the Worry Stones. They're from the DC-area but they tour all over the country. I saw them play for the first time in a rain-covered tent at Georgetown University. The energy they could summon from themselves was contagious and you didn't have to look far into the crowd to see it. They were bigger than the space they were playing in and I think that would've been true if there wasn't a canvas over our heads. Band's site

Dougie and Bryan were the 12 yr old boys at the front of the stage for your show, and seated on the side stage at O.A.R.'s show! We enjoyed your music as much as O.A.R.'s!!!! All of you are awesomely talented! Hope to see you at another show soon! Have to take dad out next time!Jane and Dougie Billig
