Nevermind the Posers was created back in 2003 to give a voice to unsigned and up and coming bands/musicians. We are dedicated to bring you new music and supporting your local scene.
A “poser” is defined as someone who habitually pretends to be something he or she is not. We at NVMP hold the firm belief that it is best to be yourself. We do not blindly follow the herd or the current popular trends in music just to simply “fit in.” We say nevermind to the posers and dig deep into the true spirit of music that is the freedom of expression. We do this by providing an open forum for the free exchange of ideas about music and popular culture. It is an unbiased atmosphere that explores musical genres of the past, present, and future. We have only one rule at NVMP and it is that each member or reader be able to explain WHY it is good music. Is it the lyrics? The beat? Or the emotions conveyed? We do not accept answers such as “I don’t know,” “It’s on the radio all of the time,” or “All of my friends like it.”
To show our readers our tastes in music, we at NVMP cover concerts, review CDs, interview our favorite artists, and promote artists outside of the mainstream. We review books, critique music videos, and keep you informed of upcoming shows you won’t want to miss! We have a weekly series running known as the “Top 5” which gives our readers a better idea of what kind of music we like while forcing us to use our imaginations. We answer the tough questions such as “What top 5 bands would you hire to play a private party?” and “What top 5 songs would you never want to hear again?” But music is not our only passion; we also like to have a little fun!
