I hope RVA hip hop heads appreciate what a great time this is for live hip hop in this city. I can't remember anytime before the last couple of years when there were so many great nationally-known artists coming through the city--to say nothing of how great the local scene is right now. It's a great time to be alive and loving hip hop, and the arrival of DJ Abilities on a stage in this town tonight is just the latest example of why that's true.
This Saturday, August 30th, the Air Sex Championship is coming, literally and figuratively, to Strange Matter in Richmond, VA.
Teargas Rock is a band with a long history, though it's mostly been unknown before now. You may never have heard of them, but chances are if you've been going to shows in RVA for a while, you've heard of Young Pioneers.
Richmond artist Tim Skirven is a graphic designer, illustrator, and painter mostly creating simple pen and ink drawings and illustrations which blend traditional and digital art.
Does Bob Mould need an introduction? I'd hope not, but I'll hedge my bets and tell you that he started out as the frontman for seminal 80s punks Husker Du, then fronted the incredible 90s alternative rock group Sugar. These days he makes (really great) solo records, his 10th and most recent being Beauty & Ruin, released earlier this year.
Amid reports of Colorado’s stunning success in reducing teen pregnancy by providing state-funded free birth control options, it’s worth noting RVA has also been very successful in helping adolescents avoid pregnancy, often from public or grant funded programs.
The music of Hoax Hunters is fascinatingly hard to define in terms of genre. Their songs are a modern throwback to the sensibilities of east coast hardcore while engaging the ideals of persuasive indie rock from the eighties and nineties. The tunes feel like outbursts and require little to no time to get the message across.
