The David Mayfield Parade with Bombadil at The Camel

$7. The David Mayfield Parade - http://davidmayfieldparade.net/ With eclectic, cinematic songs that stir up images of the old West and urban cityscapes, the 12-track album feels like a game changer for a singer-songwriter, band leader, and Grammy nominated producer who stepped out of the sideman shadows with his 2011 solo debut “The Parade.” He likens “Good Man Down” to “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.” Like “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” his first album was lighthearted and fun with nods to the past. His second is darker, creepier, more bizarre and outrageous. with Bombadil. Sunday, September 7, 2014, 8:00 PM – 11:00 PM. 1621 W. Broad St. Richmond, VA. For more info visit thecamel.org.

$8. Butcher Brown - http://butcherbrown.com "Butcher Brown — the Richmond, VA, quartet of multi-instrumentalist Devonne Harris AKA DJ Harrison (keys), Keith Askey (guitar), Andrew Randazzo (bass) and Corey Fonville (drums) — is one of the most uproariously good bands to break onto the scene in recent memory. Their free EPs, a & b-sides, have a replay value that two works gotten for free from the internet just shouldn’t sensibly have. This group is good, too good, like if Madlib’s solo-jazz project, Yesterday’s New Quintet, suddenly sprouted three more heads. They’re cool without trying. They’re funky but not cheesy. They sound like a jam session in a cloud." – Anthony Dean-Harris, NextBop. Monday, September 8, 2014, 7:00 PM – 11:00 PM. 1621 W. Broad St. Richmond, VA. For more info visit thecamel.org.

True to his search for universal truths, his profound musical knowledge and expert creations reflect years of learning the intricacies of folk, blues, gospel, country, rock’n’roll, punk rock and jazz.” Will Kimbrough is hungry.

Rod Picott at Ashland Coffee & Tea

$12 advance; $15 door. Rod Picott is the songs he sings.

Listening to a Rod Picott album you can smell the gasoline on a mechanics hands and the perfume of lovers in dark corners.

Amanda Shires at Ashland Coffee & Tea

$15 advance; $20 door. Amanda Shires landed everywhere from NPR’s Tiny Desk to the Grand Ole Opry to the cover of Texas Music as their Artist Of The Year in 2011. Now she’s back with ‘Down Fell The Doves’ via Lightning Rod Records. The album’s 11 original songs feature Amanda’s sharpest writing to date, brought to life by a voice that melts, a fiddle that sears, and guitars – played for the most part by her husband, Jason Isbell – that scrape and howl. Shires has blossomed into a truly original voice with ‘Doves,’ which was produced by Andy LeMaster (Bright Eyes, REM) and recorded at his Chase Park Transduction studio in Athens, GA. “Bulletproof” ponders invincibility with the help of a Siberian tiger claw. “Wasted and Rollin’” casts a deep, impressionistic fog. For “Deep Dark Below” Shires’ attention shifts to the underworld, where the devil plays fiddle with a bow made of bones. “Song for Leonard Cohen” has a softer touch, imagining a drunken evening stroll with the master songwriter.
