FALL 2019

by | Mar 23, 2020

It’s out! RVA Mag’s 38th edition is a photo-forward issue that focuses on live music, street art, and delicious local food & craft beer — the building blocks on which RVA Mag was built! That’s right, we’re returning to first principles with this issue, just in time to head into our 15th year of operation. Rest assured, you’ll hear more about that once we ring in 2020, but for now, get ready to feast your eyes on the local culture that is our Fall 2019 issue.

This time around, it’s all about the synergy, as we manage to capture two different conversations between leading lights of the Richmond music scene. On the heavier tip, we’ve got Iron Reagan’s Rob Skotis grilling Enforced vocalist Knox Colby on the behind-the-scenes secrets of Richmond’s hottest up-and-coming metallic hardcore band. Then on the smoother end of things, we’ve got a mini-Fight The Big Bull reunion happening right in our pages, as Spacebomb Records head honcho Matthew E. White answers some in-depth questions posed by No BS! Brass Band co-founder and trombone player to the stars Reggie Pace. The former collaborators chop it up about the movement they helped create a decade ago — the one that made Richmond a city to watch where soulful indie music is concerned.

We’ve got a whole lot more awaiting you in this new issue as well, from a photo spread by local photographer Heaton Johnson featuring the lovely and talented Jessi Rosenberg to a glimpse inside the creative mind of local poet and metal vocalist Ryan Kent. Plus, we get the word on WRIR’s long-running Death Club Radio program, catch up with fast-rising hip hop heavyweight Young Flexico, and get all the latest dish from all the fine purveyors of local craft beer your heart could desire. And of course there’s more.

So what are you waiting for? Get out there and grab a copy of RVA Magazine #38. Free copies are available from our many partners around the city — scoop one up before they’re gone!
