Dwight Yoakam Show Announced for the National, Nov. 7

Posted By on Wed, Jul 17, 2019 at 4:00 AM

Cool country musician Dwight Yoakam will be performing a rare show at the National on Thursday, Nov. 9.

Tickets go on sale this Friday, July 19 and will run you $45 or $52.50 on the day of the show (if it doesn't sell out, which is unlikely).

Yoakam has sold more than 25 million albums worldwide and has won multiple Grammy awards, with nine platinum or multi-platinum albums. He released his first ever bluegrass album, "Swimmin' Pools, Movie Stars .." in 2016 which included a cover of Prince's "Purple Rain."

He's also a pretty damn good actor with strong supporting performances in films such as "Slingblade," "Panic Room," "Three Burials of Meqiades Estrada" and "Logan Lucky."

Richmond Folk Festival and Spacebomb Announce Live Compilation Album

"All Together Now" will be available on vinyl, CD and download.

Posted By on Tue, Jul 16, 2019 at 6:30 AM

Richmond's Spacebomb Records and the Richmond Folk Festival announced today the first single from a special live compilation album celebrating the 15th anniversary of the festival.

The 10-song album, "All Together Now," will be released on Oct. 11, the first day of this year's Folk Fest, and includes select tracks recorded live since the National Folk Festival first came to Richmond in 2005.

The release will be available on CD, digital download and vinyl! (Including an orange and green tie-dye pressed vinyl collector's edition). All proceeds from sales go directly to support the Richmond Folk Festival. The CD will also feature extra tracks (see below).

Those interested can download the single and pre-order the record now at https://shop.spacebombrecords.com/music/categories/richmond-folk-festival or at any of these local record store locations: Plan 9, Deep Groove, Steady Sounds, 6131, Small Friend Records & Books. And below you can check out the first track, Lulo Reinhardt and Daniel Stelter's "Swing 2012."

“We were absolutely floored when Spacebomb reached out to us about producing the album,” said Venture Richmond Director of Events Stephen Lecky in a press release. “I have had the pleasure of working with them on various events like TEDxRVA and Fall Line Fest, but this is totally different than anything we have done before."

Lecky describes it as a thrilling experience, but also incredibly daunting to curate a shortlist of performances.

"We’re so grateful to our partners at the National Council of the Traditional Arts for their thoughtful guidance on the track selection,” he added.

NCTA Artistic Director Julia Olin undertook the task of searching through 1,300 hours of archived recordings, with a focus on reflecting the diversity of musical traditions presented at the festival.

“I must have been crazy,” Olin said in the release. “There were so many magical live performances that I couldn’t resist pulling over eight hours of material – even though only a fraction of it could be included in this project. It was incredibly hard to choose; we wanted to share it all.”

CDs and standard black vinyl will be available for sale on-site at the festival’s merchandise tent, according to the release.

“Richmond’s musical footprint is growing nationally and internationally and the Richmond Folk Festival is an important part of the city’s musical story,” Spacebomb Records CEO Ben Baldwin said. “We’re proud to be working with the Richmond Folk Festival to release an important musical document covering the first 15 years of the festival’s history.”

And now, what you've been waiting for, here is the track list below, including the extra tracks on the CD:

Track list for "All Together Now":

1. Clinton Fearon and the Boogie Brown Band, "Feel the Spirit"

2. Lulo Reinhardt and Daniel Stelter, "Swing 2012"

3. Maggie Ingram & The Ingramettes, "Family Prayer"

4. Lunasa – "Ryestraw (medley): The New Day March/Reystraw/An Old Woman Would"

VIDEO: Angelica Garcia Signs With Spacebomb, Shares New Video

Posted By on Wed, Jul 10, 2019 at 6:20 PM

One of Richmond's most talented musicians, Angelica Garcia, announced today that she had signed with local Spacebomb Records.

A Style Top 40 under 40 winner, Garcia also shared a video for her new single, "It Don't Hinder Me," directed by Spencer Ford and filmed "in the surrounding neighborhoods of Garcia’s family’s home in El Monte, California, featuring family photos and shots at local favorites like Tyler Market & Tacos El Arco."

Check it out.

“‘It Don’t Hinder Me' is a song about being proud of where I come from. I went to a magnet school that united different sectors of Los Angeles county, everything from Pasadena to West LA to El Monte and more inland. The school mixed kids from different backgrounds," Garcia explains in a press release. "Back then I often saw myself as not being cool like the kids of screenwriters and stars. This song rebukes the idea that you have to come from glamour or money to be cool. My ‘beautiful’ & ‘cool’ version of LA is the immigrant household of my grandparents.”

There should be more news coming about Garcia’s new album and details of live shows will soon be announced, according to the release.

Here's more bio info from Spacebomb:

With Mexican and Salvadoran roots in the San Gabriel Valley, East of Los Angeles, Angelica Garcia has spent the last few years creating a new, second family for herself within the welcoming community of Richmond, VA. Today, the bond is christened with the announcement of Garcia’s signing to Spacebomb Records (Bedouine, Matthew E. White), and the release of her first two singles for the preeminent Richmond label: “It Don’t Hinder Me,” an anthem celebrating her roots that blends Wall of Sound pop and Southern rock, and “Karma The Knife,” a Reaggeaton-meets-dancehall earworm ....

Like Lorde, Billie Eilish and Rosalía, Angelica isn’t afraid to tear pages out of her diary and express emotions that might be difficult and oftentimes daunting to share. Garcia -- who has recently toured with and supported acts like Mitski, Phoebe Bridgers, Natalie Prass, and Violent Femmes -- sings about and pulls inspiration from her experience growing up in the predominantly immigrant Latinx communities of Southern California. The two new singles produced by Eddie Prendergast (a long time co-writer of Matthew E. White) showcase Garcia in her creative element, and herald the arrival of a bold and buoyant new voice in music.

VIDEO: Mayor Levar Stoney Plays a Reporter in Cheats Movement Podcast Commercial

Posted By on Tue, Jul 9, 2019 at 10:30 PM

Any serious fan of local hip-hop knows the name Marc Cheatham, whose podcast, The Cheats Movement, shines a light on local artists and issues while delving into politics on occasion.

Cheats, as he's known, just released a new commercial for his podcast, his first he tells Style, which features Richmond Mayor Levar Stoney getting to flip the script and portray an intrepid reporter grilling Cheatham (as franchise mayor) about rising taxes.

We're unsure if this is his debut, but Stoney appears to have some solid acting chops. In this particular role, he gets to explore the sense of dejection and personal failure a reporter feels when serious questions about taxes go unanswered or ignored (See Mr. Mayor, it's really no fun at all. Just imagine how the whole denied-FOIA thing feels!)

Fans of iconic Virginia basketball legend, Allen Iverson, will recognize how the rest of this little parody plays out:

Directed by Zane Robinson (Life's Interpretation Media), the video also features Cheatham's co-host Gigi Broadway.

"The Cheats Movement is dedicated to hip-hop culture, community engagement and celebrating our diversity. We see our community different than most, therefore, #WESEEIT" notes the video information, referencing the show's popular hashtag.

Those interested can subscribe to The Cheats Movement podcast at iTunes, Soundcloud, Overcast, Sticher, Spotify, or most places where podcasts are available.

If this is Cheats' first commercial, we look forward to more creativity. Maybe local gadfly Paul Goldman could throw down an Alfonso Ribeiro breakdancing board and drop some windmill skills before a battle rap that reveals how to find more money for the public schools' budget?

Just a thought.

Here's the original Iverson press conference that started it all:

Director Jeff Krulik Presenting "Led Zeppelin Played Here" at Vis Arts Center, Friday, July 26

Posted By on Tue, Jul 9, 2019 at 4:00 AM

Cult film director Jeff Krulick, known for the legendary short, "Heavy Metal Parking Lot," will be returning to Richmond on Friday, July 26 for a screening of his latest work, the documentary "Led Zeppelin Played Here." The evening is being presented by the James River Film Society.

Called a "Rock-and-roll Roshoman" by the Washington Post, the film examines the urban legend that rock greats Led Zeppelin once performed to 50 teenagers at the Wheaton Youth Center on Georgia Avenue in Wheaton, Maryland, on Jan. 20, 1969 during the first presidential inauguration of Richard Milhous Nixon.

The movie, which has been on the film fest circuit for years now, features interviews with music critics, musicians and fans who claim to have been there on that fateful night. Here's a trailer of sorts.

And here's more about the project from an interview Krulick did with WAMU that can be read in full here:

My original intent was to honor the Laurel Pop Festival, which was the unheralded, somewhat forgotten festival one month before Woodstock. Clearly if you went to it, you remembered it, but anyone who didn’t go to it didn’t realize it was going on. I’d wanted to do a documentary about that, but tracing the arc of Led Zeppelin allowed for a different kind of story because they had such a meteoric rise that year. And if you realize that maybe they played their first local gig at this modest youth center, in a gymnasium, it was pretty incredible. Not out of the realm of possibility, because a lot of those bands had humble starts — this was a place that other bands were playing.

It’s like I said in the movie — it started out to be a nostalgia trip, and now it’s become a mystery. And I didn’t do it because I’m a Led Zeppelin fan. I’m very interested in the cultural and music industry in this area and concertgoing and the concert scene and people who carved out the concert business from nothing.

Tickets are $7 at the door and there will be a cash bar available.

Michael Jones of the James River Film Society says that the organization has until the end of the month to clear out its studio space at Visual Arts Center, where its resided for around 22 years. It is currently looking for a new home for its films, projection equipment, archives and posters.

Gwar Announces Dave Brockie Memorial for Hollywood Cemetery, Aug. 30

Posted By on Mon, Jul 1, 2019 at 4:00 AM

Richmond's most famous smelly metal band of space mutants, Gwar announced today on social media the unveiling of a memorial marker for its legendary co-founder and singer, the much missed Dave Brockie.

We've reached out to the band for more details, but so far, here is the social media announcement for the Aug. 30 event.

On Friday, August 30th at 2pm, we will unveil a monument to our co-founder and longtime leader Dave Brockie, which will be set in Richmond, Virginia's famed Hollywood Cemetery. All are invited to the unveiling, and to a free party the next day, August 31st, at the GWARbar.

The party will feature a performance by RAWG, the greatest GWAR tribute band of all time. Friday, August 30th marks what would have been Dave Brockie's 56th birthday. The erection of this monument has been a long time coming, and we are grateful and happy we can finally do this for Dave.

We thank the many people who donated time and money to make this a reality. We hope the marker will provide a long-needed place for Brockie's friends, family, and fans to pay their respects to this wonderful and deeply talented human being, and of course, to Dave's famous creation; Oderus Urungus, who will always be remembered as one of the greatest frontmen in rock and roll history. #GWAR #DaveBrockie

VIDEO: Lucy Dacus Releases New Video About "American Cognitive Dissonance"

Plus Gwar announces fall "Use Your Collusion Tour."

Posted By on Tue, Jun 25, 2019 at 4:00 AM

Richmond artist Lucy Dacus, who headlines the final Friday Cheers this week, released a new song today titled "Forever Half Mast" (Matador).

She noted on her FB fan page that the song was about "American cognitive dissonance" and added "Big ups to Jacob Blizard, Jake Finch, and our dude Collin Pastore for wildin out on pedal steel. I play the shitty drums at the end. Enjoy."

It's a mid-tempo tune with some typically lovely singing by Dacus, while the lyrics are just mysterious enough to probably inspire many different interpretations.

In the conflicted song, Dacus sings "I didn't choose this town/I can't undo it now/I try to love the beast/no matter what it thinks of me." That's before it gets to one of her catchiest choruses ever, even as she ponders the morality of average Americans.

Dacus told NPR: "I wrote it years ago as an answer to my own question about whether or not any American can be a good person since we are all passively benefitting from one of the most violent and destructive systems in the world. I don't so much believe in the dualistic idea of people either being good or bad anymore, but I still believe the sentiment."

Check it out yourself.

In other local music news, RVA's favorite scumdogs Gwar released a video of its own to announce its fall "Use Your Collusion" tour. It features a fist puppet and a talking Donald Trump head. For a full list of Gwar's upcoming dates, check out this post over at Brooklyn Vegan.
