If you've got rocking guitars and '80s keyboards reverberating in your ears, and two fab guys and two fashionable girls sparkling in your eyes, chances are you're at a show of San Diego's newest new new wave band, The Very, who take their name from an oft-quoted line in the dark comedy Heathers: "you are so very...."
"The Discovery has special meaning to the band. It symbolizes the commencement of a new stage of a long journey. Fairly new to the music circuit we are treading though unknown areas, meeting new people and having adventures along the way. New friends and fans will be discovering The Very for the first time." ~Phil Inzunza
