I don’t want to make this post about me, but some of you may know that I’m moving away from Charlottesville soon, and I’m going to have to get all sappy for a second. Working on this post about the new Sharkopath video has made me realize that there are two major things I’m going […]

On September 5th, hometown group The Anatomy of Frank will play the Southern with Air Review of Dallas and a magician named Lorenzo Sevilla. But, this isn’t a Spinal Tap puppet show situation: The Anatomy of Frank is on their way up, gaining popularity due to their relentless touring and solid showmanship, and Lorenzo Sevilla […]

At the Tea Bazaar tonight: Other Colors from Baltimore, who play “exploratory pop” and “future folk-rock.” Their 2011 self-titled album sounds like old-school bedroom recordings: lo-fi production, pop slightly less cracked than Ariel Pink, and to me almost a 60s vibe reminiscent of folkie weirdos like Syd Barrett or Pearls Before Swine. Charlottesville’s Girl Choir […]

Many of you are probably planning to stay in and watch the Oscars tonight, but there’s a local event that will probably be a lot of more fun — and, in fact, may actually be over in time for you to head home and catch most of the show. If you’re looking for something to […]

Well, Charlottesville’s one and only budding country star Jonny Corndawg has come home to croon tonight at Alhamraa. If you don’t know him by now, do yourself a favor and come out tonight, especially if the whole thing seems confusing or weird. As a live performer, Jonny’s about as charismatic as they come, and he’s […]

Those Darlins are playing at The Southern tonight, with locals Infinite Jets opening; Those Darlins are some well-respected tough-chick country-rockers from Nashville; although they kind of remind me of a range of 80’s LA bands; a fair amount of X, a little bit of the Go-Go’s, but more slow and southern. The bits I’ve heard […]

Charlottesville’s Red Rattles are dropping their new album ‘City Dogs’ tonight at the Tea Bazaar. Maybe you’ve caught Red Rattles playing around town from The Box to The Festy to The Southern and many places in between. Singer Luke Nutting (formerly of Six Day Bender) does a really effective too-cool-for-school gravely vocal deliver that carries […]

So here’s an opportunity to answer that ‘a tree falls in the forest’ question once and for all: A great touring band comes to Charlottesville, but any of the approximately seven local bands that would have paired nicely with them are each otherwise indisposed. So, does anyone see the show? Well, the band in question […]

Nurse Beach‘s set at the Pigeon Hole yesterday concluded with an awesome cover of the VU classic “Sister Ray.” Special guests: every other band that played that night, nailgun’s own James Ford, Matt Gatto, Chloe Delaney, Sam’s dog, those gentlemen watching from the side, and yours truly.

Tonight’s Tea Bazaar show should be really fun! You may recall that the Tea House isn’t even usually open on Sundays, so this is another one of those special-occasion shows (I think they’ll just be doing beer & wine etc, probably not dinner or hookahs)… anyhow, here’s the poster: The headlining act is La Sera […]
