The Richmond Bike Polo Club is a major outfit in the budding arena of bike polo. It is comparable to the likes of clubs from NYC, DC, Philly, and others.
Between their headlining shows and tours with the likes of Brand New, Say Anything, and Silversun Pickups--all of whom I was more than willing to check out when they came within a hundred mile radius of myself--I've probably seen Manchester Orchestra more than I've seen any other band. Their appearances as openers were my introduction to the band, and I was quickly converted into a huge fan of this Georgia five-piece, made up of young adults who sing about dying, God, and love.
As part of their 'On the Road' series, CNN gave some airtime to Poland's Etam Cru, a group of street artists who have helped make the Richmond Mural Project world-renowned.
No matter what your faith, only a true scrooge frowns when given a most excellent seasonal craft beer - and there's no better beer to warm the scroogiest of hearts than Hardywood Park Craft Brewery's Ginger Bread Stout (GBS).
MiMOSA is coming to Central Virginia, and you could see the show for free! This California producer mixes hip hop and dubstep with an original, soulful flair that has garnered praise from far and wide.
Douglas Philip Jocham is a young photographer whose images of the Richmond area caught our eye back when he was still running the now-mostly-defunct North Lombardy tumblr. These days, he's switched from capturing his environment with digital devices to shooting entirely on film, giving his work a recognizable aesthetic that is rare in this iPhone age.
Underneath the credits for recording, mastering, and artwork, the bottom of the insert that accompanies Shadow Of The Destroyer's self-titled album bears the phrase “pure Appalachian black metal,” a statement of purpose and self-identification that could easily color any conceptions of what the band attempts.
Well, there is a lot of debatably relevent information in this post, but I can't help but stir the pot when there's a claim of copy write infringement.
Hey everybody, remember the "Harlem Shake" meme? What do you mean, "too soon"? Yeah, we understand that everyone might just be sick to death of it, but any ubiquitous meme has to have a germ of excellence at the heart of it, and EDM producer Baauer is probably the best part of the whole silly affair.
The second to last month of the year brings with it some pretty chilly times. I recently stopped by a house show to see locals Close Talker, Springtime, and Hold Tight!, along with Ohio punk duo Two Hand Fools. Cold weather house shows still have an active porch scene.
