Those Darlins & Infinite Jets (Win Tickets!) – plus a Magnolia show

October 19th, 2011 · 4 Comments · By

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 […]

September 26th, 2011 · 9 Comments · By

Wavves and Fucked Up are playing at the Jefferson Theater tonight; I’m really excited to see bands like this coming through town, as others of their ilk have traditionally shunned Cville for the crowds in Richmond or Harrisonburg instead… Anyway, Fucked Up are a sprawling post-hardcore ensemble who have gotten a lot of attention recently; […]

There’s plenty of pleasant things to do on this hot sweaty summer night; we were late in getting on the sidebar calendar, so I want to take a second to highlight tonight’s show at Al-Hamraa.

The Bridge‘s film series has another cool event lined up tonight; they’re showing “The Lodger,” an early Alfred Hitchcock film; it’s a silent film from 1926, and while it’s not Hitchcock’s first film, it’s widely considered the one where first emerged as a recognizable auteur, rather than just an anonymous director-for-hire.
