Good Feelings For Late Lovers

by | Feb 26, 2020 | MUSIC

Extending Valentine’s Day through the weekend, Richmond blog Feel Good RVA held their first-ever showcase, The Late Lovers Holiday, at The Dark Room earlier this month.

Richmond blog Feel Good RVA is all about “enjoying the life you’re living.” In that spirit, earlier this month they decided to extend Valentine’s Day by hosting their first showcase, The Late Lovers Holiday, on Sunday, February 16th. The live event at the Hofheimer Building’s Dark Room featured musical performances by four local artists; Shy Lennox (@shylennox), Quoyah (@quoyaaah), Zhé Aqueen (@zheaqueen), and Saeyki (@sayki_), along with live poetry from B LOVEE (@bloveespeaks) and music from DJ Boygirl (@ecnaiva).

The space was filled with a diverse crowd of individuals who came out to support those performing. The energy and vibe of the room was completely accepting, genuine, and very involved; the crowd sang along and interacted back with the artists during every performance.

The night started with poet B LOVEE who left the crowd in awe with his relatable, yet sentimental poetry. This then led to singer Quoyah, who blew the crowd away with her powerful songs of self-love. Saeyki followed with his wicked word-play and energy to the roof. Containing the energy, DJ Boygirl kept the night going with the groovy sounds that kept the people moving.

There was then an amazing transition from the DJ set to the band preparing to play for Shy Lennox. His performance was absolutely nostalgic, and the crowd reacted very pleasantly. Finally, Zhé Aqueen ended the night with her unique, jazzy style. Considering that this was her first time ever performing, she definitely left her mark!

There’s sure to be more to come from Feel Good RVA. To stay up to date with them, you can visit their blog at feelgoodrva.com, or follow them on Instagram and Twitter @feelgoodrva.
