Evangelist Maggie Ingram and the Ingramettes at the Antioch Christian Center
Even traditional gospel music finds its way onto that most MTV of creatures, the music video. Or in this case, a DVD. Ingram and her choir haven't recorded a release in a decade, but all ears and eyes (both human and camera) are on the stage Nov. 12 for a performance of traditional and contemporary gospel being recorded for a DVD, starting at 6 p.m. Tickets are $12-$15. 874-9516.
Bruce Molsky at In Your Ear Studios
In his lifetime of fiddling around, he's managed to blend the old-time sounds of Appalachian music, blues and traditional African tunes. Now he's coming to In Your Ear Studios Nov. 9 to demonstrate why some call him the Rembrandt of Appalachian fiddling. Doors at 6 p.m., music at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $15-$20. 320-7067.
Suicide Machines at the Nanci Raygun
Because the news channels aren't giving you your politics fast enough or loud enough, Suicide Machines roll in with a small arsenal of minute-plus punk 'n' ska numbers ranging from war profiteering to, yes, young voter turnout. They cover all their bases faster than most public debates, starting at 5 p.m. Nov. 12 with Stretch Armstrong, Whole Wheat Bread and For Dire Life Sake. $12. 353-4263.
Mix It Up at the Bull & Bear Club
Richmond often gets criticized for being short on swank, but the Bull & Bear Club is the exception. It has a panoramic view of the city from the 21st floor, a spit-shined clientele, a secret handshake to get in and they encourage paying with plastic ('cause cash is tacky. Seriously). But now until the end of the year, you yes, you are invited to eat free hors d'oeuvres and drink at the cash bar and, every second Wednesday, listen to live music for Midweek Mixers. This week, The Joe Scott Band performs, 6-9 p.m. Open to the public. No cover. No password.
