Shot in […]

December 26th, 2012 · 16 Comments · By

December 19th, 2012 · 2 Comments · By

Tonight at The Southern, we are blessed with a particularly great show.  Brooklyn’s Richard Buckner will be playing, and you will not want to miss his set.  Thought frequently slapped with the “Alt-Country” label, he is infinitely more enjoyable than your average Ryan Adams or Josh Ritter.  The unique thing about Buckner is that he doesn’t […]

Both are Cville boys who have made their names elsewhere (specifically, Philadelphia) but are back in town for the time being and playing a show tonight. Justin Wolf […]
