Still Life: Weekend Playlist by Blessed

by | May 17, 2019 | MUSIC

Every Friday night, RVA Mag drops an absolutely amazing playlist curated by Virginia’s most influential artists, musicians, and institutions.

This one comes to us from Blessed, a British Columbia-based band who remind us with their music that, yes, Canada really is pretty far north. They’ll be bringing their gothic, metallic postpunk to The Camel on Tuesday, May 21, joining Richmond’s own Unmaker and Serqet in bringing some musical excitement to your midweek. Tickets are $10, and you can order your own right here.

But before you do that, dive into the playlist that Blessed has prepared so that you may give your weekend a truly excellent soundtrack. In addition to a few of their own tunes to get you psyched for Tuesday night, Blessed share a wide-ranging smorgasbord of outstanding sounds, taking you all the way from political punk to solemn indie to bouncy pop, and covering quite a few hotspots inbetween.

Take the trip, Virginia.
