The Score

A weekly rating of the city zeitgeist.

Posted on Tue, Oct 18, 2011 at 10:54 AM

+4 Richmond gets Occupied, as protestors seeking to reduce corporate power in America (among other things) march to Kanawha Plaza to spend the night. We were on our way, but then we passed a Starbucks and got distracted.

+9 b>The city’s biggest and most wide-ranging music event, the Richmond Folk Festival, draws an estimated 200,000 people to the riverfront during a pitch-perfect fall weekend. It’s so popular that even the banjo players get groupies.

0 Adding yet another leadership-training program to Richmond, the Greater Richmond Chamber announces Leadership Lab, to help teach leaders “what motivates others” and themselves. That’s easy: money, fame, legacy building and sex.

+7 Local actors, directors, producers, choreographers, designers and musicians pack into the Empire Theatre to watch the fourth annual Richmond Theatre Critics Circle Awards. It’s the only local show where all the talent’s in the audience.

+3 President Obama gears up for another Richmond visit. At this point can we just find him a rental in the Fan?
