The Shack Band

Like craft breweries, tattoo parlors, outdoor murals and Asian-inspired street cuisine, music festivals are taking over Richmond. The Shack Up is a two-day music festival taking place Friday-Saturday, Aug. 7-8, at the Camel and the Broadberry. It aims to showcase the groove-based sounds of East Coast talent. Started as an informal jam session by the Shack Band in Blacksburg in 2010, the Shack Up will include performances by the festival’s constantly touring originators and a varied assortment of genre-blenders, including New York instrumental trio Consider the Source, Love Cannon from Charlottesville, and Charleston, South Carolina’s Sol Driven Train with Richmond melody makers the Southern Belles, Jackass Flats, the Trongone Band and the Big Payback. For show times and ticket information for this urban Woodstock, visit thecamel.org or thebroadberry.com. — Chris Bopst
