There’s a band from Richmond that plays in Virginia Beach pretty frequently called In Courage. They only have two songs on their Reverbnation page, and they’re called “Living Hell” and “Don’t Worry.” These guys look nice enough, and I’m sure we’d have a great time if we were in the same room at a really loud concert of a band we both love. They are influenced by the Steelers, Metallica, and Shafer Court.
There’s another band from Virginia Beach called Averman. Unfortunately, I get the idea that they are no longer a band because they recently created an event and listed themselves as playing it as a reunion show. It’s too bad I never got to see them and develop an informed opinion. They made t-shirts and some recordings.
