April 18th, 2008 · 2 Comments · By

we only have one of these in town… …but you can get these pretty much anywhere. Given the contents of John’s article below, I know that things are looking bleak. Terry V. has confirmed that he wants to turn the space into a CVS, but that it will still be a while before everything’s squared […]

April 14th, 2008 · Comments Off on dance theater with live music · By

(these folks, plus a dance performance) There’s an event at The Bridge tonight, put together by This Little Bird, Cindy Leal‘s new dance theatre troupe. It will involve live music by Tigersaw, a folk-rock act from Massachussets, and Cathy Cathodic, a female rapper. I believe my roommate Chris will also be doing some live video […]

Art Show + Dance Party

April 11th, 2008 · 4 Comments · By

Tonight (Friday night!), you should definitely go check out the sweet art opening at the Off-Grounds gallery, which John B. has already written a solid post about (scroll down or click here). Four artists, three music acts, all good. I checked out the pillow-fort the other day, and it’s impressively cozy and ambitious. After that, […]

Japrocksampler

(this book is seriously awesome) So this isn’t exactly Charlottesville-related, but I thought I’d take the time to mention how thoroughly I’m enjoying Julian Cope’s new book Japrocksampler: How the Post-War Japanese Blew Thier Minds on Rock’n’Roll. Cope was the lead-singer of the British post-punk band The Teardrop Explodes, but today is perhaps better known […]

Black Maria, GOP + Snack Truck

April 9th, 2008 · Comments Off on Black Maria, GOP + Snack Truck · By

Two cool things tonight; first, the Black Maria Film Festival is returning to Charlottesville, thanks to the Virginia Film Society. If you haven’t been before: it’s John Columbus’s touring program of short films, which usually includes some pretty awesome stuff. It’s at Vinegar Hill tonight at 7; I believe it’s $9 (?), or free for […]

Arty Party Alert!!

April 9th, 2008 · 3 Comments · By

(A print by Patrick Costello) If this was merely a music show, I wouldn’t give it two days notice, but since it is actually an Art Show, and studies show that people need two days advance notice in order to decide to go to an art show, I thought I’d provide you with the necessary […]

Third C.L.A.W. match tonight!

April 8th, 2008 · Comments Off on Third C.L.A.W. match tonight! · By

(Stiletto vs. Sidewinder) The third assembly of Charlottesville Lady Arm Wrestlers is tonight! If you’ve been to (or heard about) either of the first two matches, then you know how crazy and fun they are. It’s a ridiculous spectacle that’s also super-dramatic, and all the money goes to support various women’s charities and causes: for […]

(ned oldham) Tonight David Dondero and Ned Oldham will perform at the Tea Bazaar. Dondero hails from North Carolina and is on the Team Love label. Oldham is now residing, I believe, in the fine countryside of western Albemarle County and has played in such groups as Anomoanon, and Palace Brothers.
