The Score

A weekly rating of the city zeitgeist.

Posted on Tue, Dec 13, 2011 at 5:26 PM

+1 In the first debate between U.S. Senate hopefuls, Tim Kaine and George Allen square off at the State Capitol. In a shocking display of bipartisanship, both camps announce that they’ve won the debate.

-3 A man unsuccessfully tries to carjack a judge outside the John Marshall Courts Building, the T-D reports, before sheriff’s deputies apprehend him. Because he was not only dumb, but also a slow runner.

+4 The Ghost of Pop festival gets fans jumping at Gallery5, with a celebration of Richmond’s pop-music scene and a nod to its past. But no one can figure out which category Carbon Leaf belongs in.

+5 With two neighborhood home tours and the blinding arrival of tacky lights, Richmond starts its annual rite of peeking into other people’s houses. As usual, we find piles of empty Pabst cans waiting for recycling in Ukrop’s paper bags.

+7 The men’s basketball teams of VCU and UR draw an electrified crowd for their first face-off since making waves in the NCAA championship. Here’s hoping they get to meet up again in March.
