Much as we'd love to lay claim to having started it all, the history of independent press in Virginia goes back many years longer than the single decade we've been in operation--and Richmond-based author Dale Brumfield has chronicled a significant portion of that history in his new book, Independent Press In DC and Virginia: An Underground History (History Press).

Ryan Kent's Poems For Dead People Is Full Of Haunting Insight

Ryan Kent is a poet, which makes sense because he's probably better known around this town as a singer. The lyrics he writes for his band, Gritter, are probably similar to a lot of lyrics, in that if you separated them from the music and wrote them down on a piece of paper, they'd look just like poetry. But Kent has more to say than what can easily be set to a metal riff and a pounding backbeat.
