Another Packed Night of Music

September 8th, 2010 · 4 Comments · By

Here we go with another jam-packed night of music. The main event is a fairly epic triple-bill at the Tea Bazaar. Let me preface by saying, I would not show up late and expect to be able to get in. Pictureplane is, in a nutshell, a dude from Denver who plays a variety of electronics […]

Killer Fall Kickoff at Tea Bazaar

September 7th, 2010 · 9 Comments · By

Well, it’s about 5:30AM, and I’m only half delirious and attempting to decompress after my first night behind the bar at The Box — really, tip your bartenders, cause that shit is more taxing than it looks! Anyway, I might as well take this eyeballs-still-glued-open moment to write up tonight’s big show — the first […]

last minute show tonight, and a preview of an INSANE week

September 6th, 2010 · 11 Comments · By

Dylan just let me know that he’s put together a last-minute garage-rock show at his house, which has now apparently been dubbed “Magnolia” (you know where that house is by now, right? get in touch with one of us if you need directions, and are not a police officer.) The line-up is Three Happenin’ Guys […]

Sunday night…

Need I say more? This thing is only $25, and it kicks off at 7. Also, you can catch Lizzy Ross at the Garage beforehand, which should start around 6:30. That’ll end right before the Reverend goes on, I promise. UPDATE: There is also this free, vinyl-only, (21+ plus) dance party at the Box afterwards […]

the Southern, the Garage… and maybe even Dust?

September 4th, 2010 · 2 Comments · By

Tonight’s big event is the show at The Southern with ManorLady, Night and the City, and Hotchacha. I’m really excited to hear Night and the City again, after catching their excellent set opening for Nurse Beach at the Box a few weeks ago; they have a sort of 80’s college-radio / semi-British jangly, driving sound […]

First Friday of the Last Quarter of 2010

September 3rd, 2010 · 2 Comments · By

Like most First Fridays, there is no shortage of things to do tonight. And everything starts rolling around 5PM as usual. Atypical, however, is a 5:00 show at the UVA amphitheater (which is right in front of Bryan Hall and next to the Cabell Hall end of the lawn). The show is a WTJU-sponsored back […]

house show tonight

September 1st, 2010 · Comments Off on house show tonight · By

That house that keeps having house parties is having another one tonight; I don’t have too many of the details, but I know the line-up will include a K Records artist (whom I’ve never heard of) called Generifus, as well as the bands 1985 (who are not very easy to google), Wastelanders, and a “special […]
