The best thing about art rock is that it doesn’t have to make any sense to be successful. In fact, the less I understand an artist’s work upon first review, the more intriguing it becomes, and the more motivated I am to figure it out. This was undoubtedly the case with the new Man Forever album, Ryonen (Thrill Jockey).
RavenCon is bringing everything under the sci-fi/fantasy umbrella to Richmond this weekend and it's going to be a blast.
Levitate, the latest work by Starr Foster Dance Project, brings a bit of edge and mystery to the Richmond dance scene. The production is based on theoretical views on the afterlife from Mary Roach’s book Spook, and inspired by a need to create outside of a typical theatre setting.
I've heard that no one committing murder ever expects to get caught, but getting the word "murder" tattooed on your neck seems like tempting fate.

Music, however, continues strongly, as the city sees the opening of The Broadberry, a medium-sized venue filling the gaps in some of the scene; the emergence of Monument City Coffee, a cafe where vinyl records meet soy lattes; and the possibility of bringing the Foo Fighters to Richmond.
