The Extraordinaires tonight

October 12th, 2011 · 1 Comment · By

The world-famous, Philadelphia-based, Charlottesville-originated Extraordinaires are back in town again tonight! I only found out about this show a few days ago, but it certainly is happening (in fact, the band arrived in town a day early and played a surprise show at The Pigeon Hole last night, which I’m sorry to have missed.)

Deleted Scenes and Winston Cup, 1981

Roedelius is an […]

Necronomitron (Pudhaus alums) at the Tea House tonight! with Miami Nights, Tyler+Dylan

October 3rd, 2011 · 4 Comments · By

Basically Tyler and Alonzo Subverbo have already done a better job of writing up tonight’s show than I could, so I hope they won’t mind my reprinting their words here.

fun house show tonight: Great Dads, Scott Ritchie, and two touring artists from Miami

October 2nd, 2011 · Comments Off on fun house show tonight: Great Dads, Scott Ritchie, and two touring artists from Miami · By

I put together a house show at Magnolia tonight, and I’ve got high hopes for it — there’s not much else going on in town this evening, and it’ll end on the early side (it is a Sunday night, after all) so come check it out! Dino Felipe is an artist I originally became aware […]
