Less than a week after the 48th NFL Super Bowl comes the 19th Face Melt Friday, and it will kick off the year in RVA hip hop with a bang!
The main location of Mayor Jones’ coveted project to revitalize Shockoe Bottom is currently stark and uninhabited. There’s not much more than a street sign at the corner of 17th Street and Grace Street right now, but in a few years it may be where home plate is at the Flying Squirrels’ new home.
The event has been a buzz online since it happened last night and the premise was simple - get two learned men in a room and have them duke it out with words over one of the greatest questions that still plagues humanity - where did we come from?
British indie band White Lies will be coming through Washington DC on February 22, and your friends at RVA Mag have got the hookup! While this postpunk band, whose music is comparable to Joy Division, Interpol, or first-LP Killers, haven't quite gotten the same amount of mainstream acclaim in the US as they've received in their native United Kingdom, they are certainly not a group you will want to miss.
The extravaganza continues! Brews & Burlesque, the monthly event combining high quality craft beer from Strangeways Brewing with the delightful, scantily-clad antics of Those Freaking Weirdos, is back with a special Valentine's Day edition!
Sometimes there is a party in town that demands "high society" style. This can be totally fun, and doesn't happen very often--so why not get fancy and go? Get your hair did, knock the dust off that nice suit and tie, put some shine on those shoes, and get ready for a good-time time warp!
An of Mekong fame is opening his own pub! Right next door to the #1 Beer Bar In America will be The Answer Brewpub, and we were there for its first collaboration with Brandon Tolbert of Extra Billy's Brewery - Kong Krush Double IPA / Imperial IPA.
The Sands are a band from Bloomington, Indiana, but they have deep roots in the RVA music scene. Jeff Grant, one of the band's two frontmen/guitarists, previously led Richmond's Pink Razors, who spent most of the last decade charming the city with their wry, catchy tales of living, learning, and growing up.
