Spammers, I invite you to join Greater Charlottesville for a dance party at The Bridge – 8pm, it’s free – to celebrate the success of […]

9/27 Eternal Summers, Audio September, Country Wide, Jack White

September 27th, 2012 · 5 Comments · By

Shit just got craaazy! Nah not really, but there are a lot of good shows tonight in Charlottesville, if this week’s punishing gauntlet of great concerts hasn’t already exhausted your febrile/nubile limbs. It’s hard to beat a cheap, intimate show with a local band done good, and you and I may well find ourselves at […]

Wild Nothing & DIIV, locals at The Bridge, Margarat Cho at the Jefferson

September 26th, 2012 · 1 Comment · By

Plenty of events this evening: Wild Nothing are back in town. That’s the band of former Blacksburg guy who got unexpectedly internet/Pitchfork famous a few years back; they have this low-fi jangle garage-rock sound that everyone compares to C86, but unlike a lot of those bands they also have a sort of polished / synthy […]

interesting Tea Bazaar show

September 21st, 2012 · 3 Comments · By

I just heard yesterday about a show at the Tea Bazaar tonight; I’m not familiar with any of the folks playing, but several rad people have spoken highly of it, and the descriptions sound interesting. The acts are all apparently related to / feature members of Devil Music Ensemble (the Boston group who have done […]

Bill Cole and Cathy Monnes at the Pink Warehouse

September 20th, 2012 · 1 Comment · By

The folks at the Pink Warehouse have given us the go-ahead to start publicizing their shows again (I think they were initially concerned about undue attention, then realized it didn’t really matter), and tonight’s concert looks particularly worthwhile: Cathy Monnes is one of the raddest ladies in town, and a seriously great performer. You may […]

9/17 Buxton

September 17th, 2012 · 4 Comments · By

This is a nice band that shares their name with a town in Derbyshire. Buxton offers that kind of highly consonant, highly produced folk that really agrees with some people and grates on me, personally.  I mean, folk in instrumentation, but folk in spirit?  To me, folk describes a style of music that is specific […]

Sunday early evening Tea Bazaar show

September 15th, 2012 · 2 Comments · By

I’m really excited for the concert at the Tea Bazaar on Sunday evening; usually they’re not even open on Sundays, so this is one of those times when they’ve made an exception because we’re all very excited about this one. Let me admit first, right off the bat, that Blues Control do not have the […]
