Well, it’s been a pretty slow week around here, concert-wise; not to fret, because there’s a ton of stuff coming up soon. For instance, Jacob has an amazing line-up of shows for early September, WTJU is planning some big things for the fall, and there’s a few things on Saturday that have fallen into place […]

I believe Andrew is playing solo tonight, so expect some songs from his impending Moon Deluxe LP, and probably some covers. He played “Mother” from John Lennon’s first “real” solo album […]

Dudes! In keeping its recently established tradition of screening excellent movies on Mondays, The Paramount will show Rob Reiner’s classic This is Spinal Tap! on the big screen tonight. It is probably one of the funniest films of all time and, impressively, the majority of the dialogue was ad libbed on set. Check it out! […]

impromptu noise show

August 15th, 2010 · 3 Comments · By

Last minute previously homeless noise show has found a home at The Box of all places tonight. This is going to be interesting. Four bands: our own ubiquitous Rhythm Bandit accompanied by touring acts Isa Christ, Andy Kaufman’s Death Mask, and Cruudeuces. In spite of the spontaneity of the show, I think Charlottesville’s tight-knit and […]

Shadow of Motown and Rock at the Box

August 9th, 2010 · 2 Comments · By

There’s two cool events tonight worth checking out; a movie at the Paramount, and a Rock Show at The Box. The movie is a documentary called Standing in the Shadows of Motown which came out about 6 or 7 years ago; it’s by no means a great film, but it’s worth seeing. In fact, I […]

Sunday miscellany

August 8th, 2010 · 5 Comments · By

Here’s a few things that are going on on this bone-dry August afternoon; I just watched “I Am Love” (the Italian film with Tilda Swinton) over at Vinegar Hill this afternoon; it was pretty fucking awesome. It’s kind of a shame attendance was so low this weekend, because it’s the best movie we’ve shown in […]
