You can’t throw a stone in Richmond without hitting six new restaurants. One of the places that rock would hit (though Style doesn’t advocate throwing rocks at businesses) is 25 Watt. The new Shockoe Bottom establishment, which specializes in homemade panini, holds its first concert Sunday, July 27, with hometown favorites Diamond Hairbrush, Bitchmouth, Hot Dolphin and the You Go Girls – a good home-team start its foray into live booking. Like a good meal, all the punky melodic flavors complement and enhance one another. Taken as a whole, this plate of Richmond ear food will leave you stuffed and thoroughly satisfied. The buffet of indigenous audio sustenance begins at 9 p.m. Admission is $5. 25wattrva.com.
