Underhill Rose at The Camel

"One of the most promising rootsy women artists in the Americana scene." – No Depression "Take a listen to the music of Eleanor Underhill, Molly Rose, and Salley Williamson, and you will be transported to a sound that has several different ingredients – but at the end of the day, it all comes together to make a dazzling fusion of Country, Bluegrass, Pop, and even a little bit of Tin Pan Blues." - Chuck Dauphin, Music News Nashville Harmonies. Soul-touching lyrics. Eye-catching stage presence. Underhill Rose has put its talents to work to become synonymous with beautiful music, charming personalities and, recently, increased momentum. With Eleanor playing her distinctive claw-hammer style on a Deering banjo along with harmonica, Molly Rose on guitar and Salley plucking the upright bass, the trio has carved out a place in the Americana scene with songs that run the gamut from heart wrenching to sassy and playful to thought-provoking. Eleanor's salty blues-inspired voice and Molly's soaring range lead t… Thursday, February 26, 2015, 5:00 PM – 7:00 PM. 1621 W. Broad St. Richmond, VA. For more info visit www.thecamel.org.

Screening a Lynching: The Leo Frank Case on Film and Television by Professor Matthew H. Bernstein of Emory University at Virginia Historical Society

The Leo Frank case of 1913 was one of the most sensational trials of the early twentieth century, capturing international attention. The subsequent lynching of Frank in 1915 made the story more irresistible to historians, playwrights, novelists, musicians, and filmmakers for decades to come. Matthew H. Bernstein is the first scholar to examine the films and television programs produced in response to the trial and lynching of Leo Frank. He considers the four major surviving American texts: Oscar Micheaux’s film Murder in Harlem, Mervyn LeRoy’s film They Won’t Forget, the Profiles in Courage television episode “John M. Slaton,” and the NBC miniseries The Murder of Mary Phagan. Exploring the cultural and industrial contexts in which the works were produced, Bernstein considers how they succeeded or failed in representing the case’s many facets. Film and television shows can provide worthy interpretations of history, Bernstein argues, even when they depart from the historical record. Reception begins at 6… Thursday, February 26, 2015, 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM. 428 N. Boulevard Richmond, VA. For more info visit www.vahistorical.org.

Quoit Club Tour: Main Street Station

Since its opening day in 1901, Main Street Station has been regarded as one of Richmond’s most renowned buildings. It originally functioned as the train depot and offices for the Chesapeake and Ohio (C & O) and Seaboard Air Line Railroads. Wilson, Harris, and Richards of Philadelphia, a firm that specialized in railroad architecture, designed both the depot building and the attached 400’ long industrial train shed. Architecturally, Main Street Station ranks as an excellent example of Second Renaissance Revival influenced by the French École des Beaux-Arts (“School of Fine Arts”), of which relatively few examples remain. The large cast iron train shed attached to the rear of the building is industrial and utilitarian in character, but remains impressive as one of the last examples of its age and type in the country. In 1975, the station closed in due to a decline in passenger rail service. In 1983, concerned about the future of the building, Historic Richmond lobbied congress to fund the City of Richmond… Thursday, February 26, 2015, 6:00 PM – 8:30 PM. 1500 E. Main St. Richmond, VA.

Marshall Crenshaw at Ashland Coffee & Tea

After an early break playing John Lennon in a touring company of the Broadway musicalBeatlemania, the Michigan-bred musician began his recording career with the now-legendary indie single “Something’s Gonna Happen,” on Alan Betrock’s seminal Shake label.

With such classics as “Someday, Someway” and “Cynical Girl,” that LP established Crenshaw as one of his era’s preeminent tunesmiths — a stature that was confirmed by subsequent albums Field Day, Downtown, Mary Jean & 9 Others, Good Evening, Life’s Too Short, Miracle of Science, #447, What… Friday, February 27, 2015, 8:00 PM – 10:30 PM. 100 N.

Low Lily ( formerly known as Annalivia) at Ashland Coffee & Tea

“A band definitely on the up. Sweet harmonies… tight arrangements… divine.” Fatea (UK) “An energy that can only be described as contagious. In a word: charming.” The Noise (Boston) “Richly textured… equally as slick as Alison Krauss and Union Station.” Northern Sky Radio (UK) “Beautiful vocal tones and masterful stringwork…” Cover Lay Down LOW LILY, formerly called Annalivia, is an American ‘roots and branches’ string trio which draws from tradition and today to create their own brand of new acoustic folk music.

The Gaslight Anthem at The National

Doors: 7:00 PM / Show: 8:00 PM $20 ADV | $23 DOS The Gaslight Anthem has always been hard; with GET HURT, the New Jersey-based rock 'n' roll band get heavy. Since coming together in 2007, the band has joyfully injected aspects of rock's most universal languages -- arena rock and barroom blues, folk and pure pop -- into punk's round hole, ultimately forging its own powerful, populist sound. 2012's HANDWRITTEN proved the apogee for The Gaslight Anthem's anthemic approach, scoring top 10 chart debuts in eight countries around the globe. Having climbed the mountaintop, the band has chosen to push their music farther than ever before, not via extra instrumentation or expanded arrangements, but by blowing up the template from stem to stern. Massive melodies and shout-to-the-top choruses are still well in hand, but songs like "1,000 Years" and the searing title track draw on grunge and symphonic pop, soul and psychedelia, all shot through with limitless ambition, experimental energy, and collectivist spirit.… Tuesday, March 3, 2015, 8:00 PM – 11:00 PM. 708 E.

Jimkata at The Broadberry

Jimkata’s innovative, fan-funded record Die Digital turned the heads of critics and musicians when it dropped in the Fall of 2012, solidifying the band’s reputation as forward-thinking artists to pay attention to. Having been a mainstay of the Northeast jam circuit since 2006, Jimkata’s refined electro-rock sound is one of a band that has found its voice after years of experimentation. It’s more indie rock than jam, and more 90?s electronica than modern day EDM; yet the five-piece appeals to each of these audiences. In the spirit of LCD Soundsystem, MGMT and Talking Heads, Jimkata’s relevant, quotable lyrics create moods not just for fleeting moments, but for the lifestyle of an entire generation. $7 ADV, $10 DOS http://www.thebroadberry.com/event/759377-jimkata-richmond/.

"James Madison's Gift: The Power of Partnership" by David O. Stewart at Virginia Historical Society

To reach his lifelong goal of a self-governing constitutional republic, James Madison blended his talents with those of key partners—the dashing Alexander Hamilton, the heroic George Washington, the magnetic Thomas Jefferson, and the soldierly James Monroe. With those extraordinary partners, Madison led the drive for the Constitutional Convention, pressed for an effective new government, co-wrote the Federalist Papers, secured the Constitution's ratification, drafted and won adoption of the Bill of Rights, founded the nation's first political party and guided the nation through the War of 1812. Then he handed the leadership of a happy nation to his old friend and sometime rival Monroe. But it was his final partnership that allowed Madison to escape his natural shyness and reach the greatest heights.

Dance a Little Closer: a Tribute to the Songs of Nanci Griffith/ Kipyn Martin Opens at Ashland Coffee & Tea

“Dance a Little Closer: a Tribute to the Songs of Nanci Griffith” In a career that now spans two decades, New York duo Pete and Maura Kennedy have traversed a broad musical landscape, surveying power pop, acoustic songwriting, organic rock rooted in their early days in Austin, and a Byrds-inspired jangle that drew the attention of Roger McGuinn, Steve Earle, and most notably Nanci Griffith. The duo co-produced Nanci’s latest CD. On their own recent release, “Closer Than You Know,” the songs have a quality, inherent in Maura’s voice, that is both soothing and urgent. As writers and producers, the Kennedys continue to mature, from their early style-conscious pop to today’s burnished sheen. Always tuned to their own muse, Pete and Maura have once again come up with a unique sound that is as uplifting as it is unclassifiable.

Scott Miller at Ashland Coffee & Tea

Ever since Steve Earle declared Miller a “world class” songwriter – signing him and his former band The V-Roys to his record label E-Squared and producing their two bedrock Americana albums JUST ADD ICE and ALL ABOUT TOWN with Twangtrust partner Ray Kennedy – Miller has been known as a writer’s writer. Even on the next four albums Miller recorded and releasedon Sugar Hill Records from 2001 to 2008, Miller’s songwriting remained genuinely thoughtful, for the most part regional and history based– but always cloaked in what one New York Times reviewer called an “epic vernacular.” In other words, he wrote big. The last two years have seen big changes for the malapert Miller. “Like many with elderly parents I heard the call: Now is the time for all sons to return to the land of their raising, smother their parents with a pillow and collect their social security,” Miller deadpanned. Moving home to take over the family cattle farm and establishing a new base from which to tour in Staunton, VA – all while embracin… Saturday, March 7, 2015, 8:00 PM – 10:30 PM. 100 N.

"Vincent", A Play by Leonard Nimoy at Gottwald Playhouse

Presented by Starry Night Theater Company Leonard Nimoy’s Vincent, on tour for over two years, delighted Richmond CenterStage audiences last June. Author Leonard Nimoy dramatizes the life of Vincent van Gogh in this intimate one-man play adapted from the actual letters between the artist and his brother, Theo. Van Gogh’s story is so much more than the misunderstood artist who cut off his own ear. This play reveals the bigger meaning and significance of Van Gogh’s life, a symbol of inspiration, courage, passion, and the lust for life that art kindles in all of us. It also includes over 100 stunning projections of Vincent’s artwork. Originally performed by Mr. Nimoy himself, this production is performed by James Briggs.

Jason Boland & The Stragglers at The Camel w/Cody Canada

It's admirable when a musician gets back to his roots, there's no questioning that. But in a lot of ways, it's even more admirable when an artist has no need to do that – having never lost touch with those roots in the first place. Jason Boland falls squarely into the latter category, having spent the better part of the last 15 years entrenching himself in the so-called "red dirt" of his native state of Oklahoma and adopted home in Texas and while spreading his musical branches to cover a remarkable amount of territory. ---- The latest, tight incarnation of the Cody Canada-led group The Departed isn't a reinvention of the group's sound, or a reimagining of Canada's musical perspective – it's a reunion. As with any reunion, the passing years have provided the involved parties with new and unique perspectives, breathing vibrant excitement into their streamlined new environment. $15-$18. Details: http://www.thecamel.org/event/776565-jason-boland-stragglers-richmond/. Monday, March 9, 2015, 8:00 PM – Tuesday, March 10, 2015, 12:00 AM. 1621 W. Broad St. Richmond, VA.

Monogold at Capital Ale House

"Monogold's hypnotically submerged vocals recalls the heart-swelling sonics of prime-era Animal Collective. Perfect for listening to as you absorb the last of the summer's rays.

Their most recent release and first full-length album is 2011's "The Softest Glow." Their 2009 EP, "We Animals," continues to receive rave reviews from blogs and magazines throughout the US and abroad. In November 2011 the band was chosen to perform at the press release for GOOGLE MUSIC in Los Angeles, and performed with such artists as Busta Rhymes, Maroon 5, and Drake. They have also shared the stage with such artists as: Hot Hot Heat, Hooray For Earth, Kype Malone (TV On The Radio), Bear Hands, Sharon Van Etton, Yacht, Hockey, Crystal Castles, Lucius, and The Budos Band. $2.

With its latest recording, Brownout Presents Brown Sabbath, they remain true to the darkness, bombast and fuzz of Sabbath’s sound, while re-imagining the music with greasy Afro-Latin horns, hypnotic percussion and psyched-out, rare-groove improv. Crushing Vinyl blog called a recent performance “magical,” while OkayPlayer wrote, “frantic horn squeals but up against the restless rhythms of the band, paying deep respects.” $5. http://www.thebroadberry.com/event/791563-brown-sabbath-tribute-black-richmond/.

The Mastersons – Aaron Lee Tasjan at Ashland Coffee & Tea

The Mastersons. Husband and wife, singing and playing together. And they’re each deft instrumentalists, and they’ve spent years playing in others’ bands before coming together as a unit. They’re bound by music and an uncommon depth of companionship, they’re good enough to make Steve Earle swoon, and all of that sounds quite nice. Until 16 and a half seconds into track one, when Eleanor Whitmore begins singing, “The twitch in my left eye came back today.” “Yeah, we’re not exactly gazing lovingly at each other while we’re playing these songs,” says guitarist Chris Masterson. “Sometimes the ‘couple’ thing can seem a bit schmaltzy. We’re more a band than a duo, and we’re not going to be George and Tammy. We might not even be John and Exene.” $12 advance; $15 door. http://www.ramajayintercoastal.com/.
