TONIGHT: Sally Rose Band at Blue Moon, 9pm, no cover

May 23rd, 2014 · Comments Off on TONIGHT: Sally Rose Band at Blue Moon, 9pm, no cover · By

Wanted to take a second and plug The Sally Rose Band playing tonight at Blue Moon Diner. I heard their track “Witchbaby” on WTJU’s “Folk and Beyond” yesterday and felt impelled to do a shout-out. For (ashamedly) many years, I thought Sally Rose was a forty-something local legend, birthed in a manner similar to the […]

Julia Kudravetz provides a rad write-up for a reading happening tonight! Earl Swift is one of that old breed of journalists who writes longform pieces. He’s reading tonight from his book, Autobiography: A Classic Car, An Outlaw Motorhead, and 57 Years of the American Dream. (Puns. What are you going to do.) The book traces a ’57 […]

Quick write-up about tonight’s show at the Tea Bazaar: Emperor X has trod through Charlottesville many times over the years, playing at Jacob Wolf’s old house on Nalle St., The Bridge, and, of course, the Tea Bazaar. Chad Matheny, the person behind the curtain, makes real interesting lo-fi noise-folk and should be a cool performer to […]

Le DISQUE DU LUNDI

May 19th, 2014 · Comments Off on Le DISQUE DU LUNDI · By

Watter / This World (Temporary Residence, 2014)     Following today’s music scene, in all its density, is no easy task. One great thing about promo CDs is that I can listen to them, newly minted, one after the other while I work on other things, in the hopes of discovering something truly exciting. That […]

Apologies for the late post, dear Readers, but I was trapped–absolutely against my will–at Ace BBQ, pinned to my Ace Dip sandwich by the torrential downpour. I scuttled over to MiliJoe to borrow so WiFi and write this post on NailGun (I promise I’m not turning into Tom Friedman)   Tonight’s show at Crozet Pizza […]

Protomartyr / Under Color of Official Right (2014)   It’s Monday.  I’m swamped.  This is a f**cking great album.  What more do you need to know?     Ed. Note: Melody Supreme, located at 115 4th St. SE off the Downtown Mall, is Charlottesville’s best record store. The owner Gwen Berthy has impeccable taste and a curatorial hunger […]
