Summer Nights

Concert season shaping up at Friday Cheers and Innsbrook.

Posted By on Thu, Mar 5, 2015 at 12:05 PM

Venture Richmond's Friday Cheers, slowly, tantalizingly released it's 2015 outdoor concert schedule this week via Richmond.com --- like a steaming, honey-slathered strip-tease by Dirtwoman before a crew of construction workers.

It's the 31st season of Friday Cheers and it kicks off May 1. Among the highlights are Future Islands, Hurray for the Riff Raff, Jason Isbell, Wood Brothers, and Bio Ritmo. We know it's anticlimactic, but here you go:

May 1 - Shakey Graves and Yarn, $5.

May 8 – Jason Isbell with Horsehead , $10.

May 15-17 – Dominion Riverrock, featuring Greensky Bluegrass and Blues Traveler, free.

May 22 – RVA Music Night featuring Richmond bands: Bio Ritmo, The Milkstains and Honkytonk Heroes, $5.

May 29 – Moon Taxi with Sleepwalkers, $5.

June 5 – Future Islands with White Laces, $10.

June 12 – Hurray for the Riff Raff and Joe Pug, $10.

June 19 – Snarky Puppy with Butcher Brown, $10.

June 26 –The Wood Brothers and Son Little, $10.

Advance tickets for individual shows and season passes to Friday Cheers are available online at Ticketstobuy.com starting today. Season Passes cost $40 from March 5th – April 1st and $50 after.

Another music series, Innsbrook After Hours, is celebrating its 30th anniversary and just announced two big adds to its summer concert schedule in Glen Allen. The Beach Boys will play Wednesday, Aug. 19 and Boyz II Men will perform on Thursday, Aug. 27.

According to it's press release: "A special weekend long celebration will help kick off the 30th anniversary season and feature concerts from Foreigner on May 29th, Lee Brice on May 30th and Rusted Root with The Wailers on May 31st. The 2015 season also includes concerts with Michael McDonald on June 10th , Chris Young on June 25th and Buddy Guy on July 1st. Tickets for these shows are already on sale.
