Set List 

Where to go. What to hear.

Greg MacPherson at Nanci Raygun

Singer-songwriter from Canada plus political slant equals a night of thought-provoking, and perhaps slightly angry, messages from the north about this and that. He plays with Tim Barry of Avail and Josh Small as well as newborn group Homemade Knives, Aug. 5 at 7 p.m. $6. 353-4263.

Mambo Combo in Ashland

The Bluemont Concert Series kicks off in Ashland with Latin and Caribbean dance music by Mambo Combo, a group known to lure even the poorest of dancers to their feet to discover the joys of their wiggling hips. They say it's like Rio's Carnival over in the little old Center of the Universe, starting Aug. 7 at 7 p.m. Tickets are $2-$5. 798-9219.

Hip-Hop at Nanci Raygun

Underground hip-hop fills out the Raygun with performances by Footsoldiers, Dollaz and Pounds, Echo Boomers, Memphis 10, Clarck Boys, Ssseven, VA Slim and Devious Knievel Aug. 4. Richmond's known, less-known and unknown throw rhymes around like a food fight with a heavy beat, starting at 10 p.m. Admission is $6 or $5 with a flyer.
