The Score

Posted on Tue, Sep 23, 2014 at 1:00 AM

+6 The Foo Fighters play Richmond in a much-publicized show, marking the first major rock concert to happen as the result of crowd funding. Next, the race to lure Neil Diamond to The Diamond. Grandma just needs wee bit of help finding the power button on her laptop.

+7 Speaking of fundraising, the 36-hour online push for local charities, the Amazing Raise, brings in 20,421 gifts totaling more than $1.74 million. And not a single plea to dump ice water on your head.

-2 As expected, gadget enthusiasts get weird over the new iPhone release, waiting in long lines and filming the mad rush to the Apple store at Short Pump Town Center. It still wasn't as scary as the Soccer Mom Minivan Armada of '03.

0 The Richmond hosts of next year's UCI Road World Championships travel to the event in Ponferrada, Spain. Just what we need, Mayor Jones learning about siestas while gaining easy access to pitchers of sangria.

+3 In the weekend leading to the first day of fall, Richmonders get in the spirit with the season's first Oktoberfest, held in the streets of the Museum District by St. Benedict Parish. But the longest lines were on Sunday at the confessional.
