With the implosion of the music industry, the one thing that’s survived is the live music experience. It’s the only bankable commodity that can’t be fully replicated or truly experienced in the era of screen living. On Friday and Saturday, Aug. 5 and 6, you can get up close and personal with a variety of music when the Shack Band is host to “The Shack Up” at the Camel and the Broadberry. The annual, two-day music festival features homegrown talents and regional rockers performing on three indoor and outdoor stages. From the Big Apple classic rocks of London Souls to the Richmond shakedown streets of the Southern Belles, Horsehead and Jouwala Collective, a bevy of modern levee breakers, sex machines and Dixie chickens will kick out their jams for your listening and dancing pleasure. For show times, band schedules and ticket information, visit thecamel.org or thebroadberry.com.
