This week at Friday Cheers: RVA Music Night!

Friday Cheers gives a Friday cheer of huzzah to local musicmakers.

Things kick off at 6:00 PM; tickets are $5, and children under 12 are free. Here’s a quick preview of what to expect this week, and, of course, there’s more info on the Facebook page.

HonkyTonk Heroes

  • Genre: Country
  • Sounds kinda like: Two American-flag-painted guitars crossed above a bald eagle.

Bands whose media pages starts with “Devil Went Down to Georgia” are media pages that I end up spending some time on. FIDDLES. Clicking through all of the Heroes’ songs, I’ve learned that there is an entire song about how there’s “Somethin’ Bout a Truck” and then a different song about baiting a hook (which also talks about trucks (and bucks!)!). This is, like, a world I am not super familiar with.

The Milkstains

Ahhhh, back to the safe confines of surf-inspired rock n’ roll; the Milkstains may be Richmond’s perfect summer band. If you’re not familiar with this RVA quintet, they do the most fantastic job of letting surf-rock inspire their sounds just enough to make you feel like dancing, while still keeping things garage-y enough to make you feel like bustin’ some heads. Perfect for those It’s Not the Heat, It’s the Humidity days.

Bio Ritmo

It’s intimidating to write about Richmond institution Bio Ritmo, so instead watch this video that takes place inside another Richmond institution.
