and later tonight…

May 21st, 2009 · 14 Comments · By

Following the show at the Bridge, there is a punk show at the Box, my smoky home away from home. The Points are coming down again before embarking on a cross-country tour. Josh Lowry’s band, The Last Blackouts, are opening up along with Richmond’s The Ladies, who are apparently too punk to deal with myspace. […]

The Bridge tonight / Outback metal / VHT metal

May 21st, 2009 · Comments Off on The Bridge tonight / Outback metal / VHT metal · By

There’s a Bridge show tonight which should be pretty awesome. The Kingsbury Manx are headlining; I don’t know much about them, but I know a lot of WTJU folks were really excited that they were coming and surprised (in a good way) that a show like that would end up at The Bridge. Originally Order […]

not enough drama

May 20th, 2009 · Comments Off on not enough drama · By

J Hernandez and Allen VanHouzen are peforming a production of Edward Albee’s “The Zoo Story” at the 12th Street Taphouse. It’s a short play that shouldn’t run longer than 45 minutes. You can catch it tonight at 10pm and again tomorrow evening at either 8pm or 10pm.  There is no cover but I think they […]

Steven Steinbrink and Hell-Kite

May 19th, 2009 · 6 Comments · By

Touring Arizonians Steven Steinbrink and Ann-Marie “Hell-Kite” Philipp are in town for a few days; I think a tour date got dropped or something, so as Jacob put it: “I booked them for a mini-tour of Charlottesville.” They ended up being the last-minute openers for Elvis Perkins last night, and although I missed that show, […]

Music at the Box, plus Elvis Perkins

May 18th, 2009 · 2 Comments · By

Adam and Thomas are DJing at The Box again tonight; it’s always a fun time, especially for a Monday. No cover, and it runs from 10pm-ish until 2am-ish. I’ll be there, dancing. There’s also a show at Outback with a band called Elvis Perkins in Dearland, who are supposed to be good. I mistakenly listed […]

Post Punk Dance Party tonight!

May 16th, 2009 · 3 Comments · By

We’re doing a last-minute dance party at the Tea House tonight; it’s Paul & Orion’s last gig in town (they’re the dudes responsible for these parties, which were both totally sweet). We were all getting a little worn down on the persistent “Mod” theme (plus, the dudes who do the Standard over at Rapture seem […]

Bridge bicycle screening tonight

May 15th, 2009 · Comments Off on Bridge bicycle screening tonight · By

There’s a movie at The Bridge tonight… actually, it starts in about an hour.  It’s a documentary called Veer, about bicycling; I think it’s going to be less about bicycling specifically, and more about the various contemporary subcultures that surround bicycling. It looks pretty fun.  8pm, $5 cover. There’s also a last-minute dance party tomorrow […]

Skeletonbreath

May 14th, 2009 · Comments Off on Skeletonbreath · By

There’s an amazing band playing at the Tea House tonight. A lot of you have probably already seen them (in which case you presumably already plan on going) or are at least peripherally aware of them: Skeletonbreath. I’m not going to attempt to explain them too much. Suffice to say, they’re a three-piece instrumental group, and they rock. […]

an excellent C-Ville Weekly article, and a metal show tonight

May 13th, 2009 · Comments Off on an excellent C-Ville Weekly article, and a metal show tonight · By

Brendan’s cover story in the C-Ville this week is just a spectacular and awesome treasure trove for any local music fan; it’s a list of 45 great songs from Charlottesville.  While I might disagree with many of his choices (the Rolling Stones, last I checked, were still from England), and quibble over a few omissions […]

Jazz at the Taphouse

May 12th, 2009 · 1 Comment · By

Overall, it looks like it’ll be a quiet Tuesday, but here’s something: Gerrit Roessler and a slew of notable guests are playing jazz at the Tap House tonight as Melamine. I understand that this is their drummer, Granville Mullings, last show before leaving C’ville. Earlier in the evening Aaron Binder and his jazz band will be playing […]
