With the cancellation of Fall Line Fest, the organizers of Strange Matter, Friday Cheers and Slimehole Productions teamed up to hold a music festival anyway. The Extragavanza, the one-night music showcase Friday, Nov 6, at the Broadberry, Strange Matter and En Su Boca, features a diverse collection of local music-makers playing with just-below-the-surface regional and national acts. Highlights include performances by New York rockers DIIV, Detroit industrial noise merchants Wolf Eyes, Montreal shoe gazers No Joy, and Lee Bains III and the Glory Fires from Alabama playing alongside Richmond’s own Avers, Mutwawa, the Snowy Owls, the Trillions and Manatrees. Sponsored by Plan 9 Records, Ardent Craft Ales, WDCE-FM 90.1, Tito’s Handmade Vodka and VA Comicon, the festival kicks off on the two performance stages at the Broadberry at 5 p.m. Tickets are $12-$30. thebroadberry.com.
