Summer’s here and RVA Magazine is back to help you beat the heat with our trademark full-color coverage of the local cultural landscape! This issue features in-depth coverage of the Richmond Mural Project’s 2014 edition, in words and pictures! As the media partner for the RMP, our access to the project was unparalleled, and you’ll see the difference in our exclusive interviews and photographs.

That’s not all you’ll find within, though. From up-and-coming local performers to the best nationally known musicians who come through town, we cover them all. On the local level, this issue gives you the lowdown on Avers, the hot new RVA indie supergroup featuring members of The Head And The Heart! We also tell you about local noise rockers Hoax Hunters and speedy hardcore/metal crossover sensations Iron Reagan. We talk to Canadian party-disco kingpins Chromeo, who rocked the National recently and are riding high on the success of their latest album. Plus, ahead of their appearance at Fall Line Fest, we bring you an in-depth conversation with Craig Finn of The Hold Steady. And finally, one of our writers finds herself in a backstage hot tub with the members of Nashville garage-rock sensations Natural Child.

All this and more, including plenty of art, music, and fashion coverage you won’t find anywhere else, is waiting for you in the summer issue of RVA Magazine! Issues of our magazine can always be read in digital form online, and are also available as a free download. Click here to check out the online version.
