Lady V At Vfw Post 39
St. Petersburg scenesters got to know her a little better this year as more indie shows started going down at the ‘Burg’s VFW Post 39, where Lady V can usually be found behind the bar. So it was a welcome and well-celebrated surprise when the sexagenarian showed up at venerable downtown dive the Emerald this summer to check out a set by her new favorite local band, the rowdy-verging-on-crazy electroclash outfit Reality Asylum. She’s handed a lot of beers to fans over the formica lately, and it was an honor for several fans to return the favor by handing her some of her own. VFW Post 39, 2599 Central Ave., St. Petersburg. —Scott Harrell
