February 1: First Friday, Diane Cluck, 4tet

February 1st, 2013 · 5 Comments · By

Spring couldn’t last forever. It couldn’t even last past noon on Thursday, I guess. I hate the cold, but I love First Fridays. Life’s like that, you know? Bitter but not without sweetness… Right. Here’s some stuff to do! Friday: First: Chug some wine from small plastic cups. Confess your indifference to art history, and […]

Grits & Gravy @ R2

January 25th, 2013 · 2 Comments · By

Ah, finally. It seems like ages since we’ve had a Grits & Gravy dance night. I for one can’t think of a better way to beat the freeze than getting down to really good old soul & funk with my friends. And it’s free!

Yo La Tengo @ The Jefferson

Very excited about seeing YLT tonight! As far as I know, tickets are still available, though not cheap ($20-25). Doors are at 7, and there’s no opener. YLT are playing two sets: one soft, the second hard. I’m guessing they’ll play from around 8 to 10, but we’ll keep you updated on Facebook and Twitter […]

Saturday 11/24 Mark Fosson, Daniel Bachman, Nathaniel Earl Bowles

November 24th, 2012 · Comments Off on Saturday 11/24 Mark Fosson, Daniel Bachman, Nathaniel Earl Bowles · By

Christ Episcopal Church is hosting a line-up tonight that’s a real gift to guitarists and a glimpse into Virginia’s bumpin’ neo-folk scene. First is Mark Fosson. Fosson will remind you of Kottke & Fahey, and indeed he recorded on Fahey’s label, Takoma, back in ’76-77 before it went under. In the 80s and 90s, Fosson worked […]

11/19 Monday. Andrew Combs, Angel Snow, Penny Pistol

November 19th, 2012 · Comments Off on 11/19 Monday. Andrew Combs, Angel Snow, Penny Pistol · By

Two good sonic occurences tonight.  I’ve heard some positive stuff about Andrew Combs, and at the price of pay-what-you-will, why not swing by the Pink Warehouse at 8pm tonight (that’s for you, Coogs)?  Paul encourages you to BYOB this time. Afterwards, head down the street to the C&O, because James is DJ-ing, and IT’S HIS […]

11/17 Frank Fairfield + Horse Feathers at The Southern

November 17th, 2012 · 4 Comments · By

Much, maybe most, music being made right now is more or less explicitly cover or tribute music. Insanely spot-on nostalgia bands like Tame Impala, Veronica Falls, and even our own Eternal Summers mimic recordings of the past with unnerving historical accuracy. It’s funny, because when you fall in love with a band, you fall in […]

11/15 Angel Olsen, Nettles, Generifus at Tea Bazaar

November 14th, 2012 · 10 Comments · By

I can’t believe I’ll be seeing Angel Olsen tonight. When I heard her song, “Acrobat,” I assumed she was actually an angel, too busy wearing thick ivory knits and scowling her white-blonde brows across the Scandinavian steppes to stumble through Charlottesville. Turns out she’s from Portland or something. Genuinely, though, “Acrobat” is a breathtaking song. […]
