As far as music goes, Richmonders are getting spoiled. It seems that every week we have an ever-growing abundance of live-music options that were unthinkable just a few short years ago. Proof of this embarrassment of melodic riches is the Stone Soul Music & Food Festival. Taking place Saturday, June 11, at the Richmond Raceway Complex, the lineup is one of the best assembled in the festival’s 12-year history. Taking the stage will be the here-and-now sounds of national recording acts T.I., Yo Gotti, Monica, Dru Hill, 112, Lil Kim, Fabolous, the Backyard Band, Tasha Cobbs, Canton Jones, Desiigner, Dreezy and Madeintyo. Sponsored by iPowerRichmond, the outdoor showcase of urban ear and taste sensations runs noon-8 p.m. Admission is $45. Call 672-9299 or ipowerrichmond.com.
