This Week

March 30th, 2010 · 17 Comments · By

Okay, so perhaps as a result of MACRoCk, it looks like pretty light fare as far as events go here in town this week. Thusly, I’m going to try to knock out our coverage of said events in one fell swoop, so that hopefully we can give you some kind of decent preview of MACRoCk in […]

Gang Gang Dance at the Southern Tonight!

March 29th, 2010 · 5 Comments · By

Gang Gang Dance are playing at The Southern tonight! If you haven’t heard ’em, GGD are a pretty excellent art-rock/dance act from New York; I highly recommend you check out their 2005 album “God’s Money,” as it’s a tremendously confounding medley of off-kilter tribal beats, weird chimes, and spooky otherworldly singing; there’s heaps of jap-/kraut-rock […]

After three years, it’s finally here: the Parking Lot Movie will make it’s Charlottesville debut at the Paramount tonight. It starts at 8:00pm, and is probably going to sell out, so you might want to buy your ticket now! During all of the awesome attention and press that this movie has been getting, everyone keeps […]

Joanna Newsom

March 24th, 2010 · 9 Comments · By

Joanna Newsom, the one and only harpist-virtuoso folk-songstress, is at The Jefferson tonight. Suffice to say, I haven’t been this excited about a show in a long time. Newsom’s last album ‘Ys’ is probably in my top 3 albums of all time. Which is something I’m surprised I don’t hear more often, even from critics and […]

apropos of really rad shit

March 24th, 2010 · 1 Comment · By

There’s a six member all-girl, all-vinyl DJ collective based in Richmond going by the name of Cherry Bomb. I came across them last December when I received an invitation to their highly lauded Rock and Shop event. I wasn’t able to attend but the idea of a girl-comprised unit who both works the craft fair […]
