  • Politically incorrect comedian Bill Maher returns to Richmond this July 10 at the Carpenter Theatre. Tickets go on sale this Friday.

Hardywood Park Craft Brewery and Movie Club Richmond present "Streetmuse: Kenya" a new documentary featuring local musician Nate Rappole who performs as Gull. The film follows Rappole as he travels through Africa, performing, bonding with musicians and l-i-v-i-n!

There will be a Q&A afterword. Rappole was accompanied on his travels by director Meryl O’Connor ("The Ballad of Finn" and "Yeti"), journalist Imgard Rop and sociologist Len Albright, who will be present at the Hardywood screening.

The screening is Friday, March 13 in the tap room at Hardywood Park Craft Brewery. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the movie begins at 8:00 pm. Admission is free with a suggested donation of $5.

Here's a trailer:

Dominion Rivverrock announced the musical lineup for its popular annual summer event on Brown's Island and the riverfront, May 15-17. This year's headliner is jamband stalwart, Blues Traveler. Other acts include local reggae musician Mighty Joshua, the Shack Band, Sam Reed Syndicate, American Aquarium and Major and the Monbacks. For the whole list, click here. The event is free and open to the public and it goes without saying, there will be no bottles allowed.

Tickets range from $44 to $73 dollars (plus fees) and go on sale this Friday, Feb. 13 at Richmond CenterStage and Altria Theater box offices, or charge by phone at 1-800-514-ETIX (3849) or online at www.ETIX.com.
