Set List 

Where to go. What to hear.

Global Rock Showcase at Hyperlink Café

A little bit punk rock, a little bit reggae: HR from Bad Brains, a former Richmonder, returns for another show, now with more world music, for D.I.A. Records' Global Rock Showcase, Aug. 20 at 9 p.m. HR's last show in May was a bit under the radar, but this one has a little more filling, namely reggae from Carlton Livingston, Dub Agents, Duburbia, Grinding Faith, Simple and Supreem, and the Maddhatters. Flip the coin to see whether HR will bring in the punk or the dub. $10-$15. 254-1942.

Virtual Frequency Tour

Wholesome hip-hop? Maybe not quite, but definitely with a Christian emphasis. DJ Maj, Mars ILL and Liquid Beats perform at the Richmond Outreach Center Aug. 19. See the DJs spin for a higher power at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $10-$13. Call 677-2828 or visit www.virtualfrequency.com.

500 Miles to Memphis at Poe's Pub

What's it all mean? The distance from this country-punk outfit's Cincinnati hometown to Graceland, of course. 500 Miles gracefully bridges the gap between out-and-out punk and twangy country, shifting between influences subtly. The overall effect has the loneliness of dusty Midwestern roads with enough of a pop sound to suggest the presence of Graceland's favorite ghost. The show starts Aug. 18 at 9:30 p.m. $5. 648-2120.
