It took four years for The Lumineers to follow up their platinum-plus, multi-Grammy-nominated, self-titled debut -- which spent 46 weeks on the Billboard 200 and peaked at #2 -- but 'Cleopatra' is well worth the wait. After exploding onto the scene with their monster single, "Ho Hey" (which spent a staggering 62 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at #3) and its follow-up, "Stubborn Love" (recently featured on President Barack Obama's Spotify playlist), The Lumineers spent a solid three years touring six of the seven continents. During that time, The Lumineers -- whose original members Wesley Schultz and Jeremiah Fraites founded the band in Ramsey, New Jersey back in 2002 -- earned a pair of Grammy nominations (Best New Artist, Best Americana Album), contributed two songs to 'The Hunger Games' franchise (including the hit Jennifer Lawrence/James Newton Howard collaboration, "The Hanging Tree") and sold an impressive 1.7 million albums in the U.S. and 3 million worldwide. $34.50 DAY OF SHOW $39.50… Friday, September 16, 2016, 7:00 PM – 10:00 PM. 600 E.

Built To Spill at The National

Twenty years on from first signing to Warner Bros. Records, Built To Spill is set to return in 2015 with its eighth studio album, Untethered Moon. That’s now two complete decades that one of America’s leading “indie rock” bands has happily made its home on a major label, and in the process redefined that clumsy descriptor of independence by operating wholly and consistently under its own steam, taking the proper time to craft timeless songs and playing endless, epic shows to a growing grip of fans each year. Under the command of its constant leader, Doug Martsch, as well as a new rhythm section, Built To Spill’s creative process continues to ebb, flow and evolve in its own orbit, reemerging on record for the first time since 2009’s There Is No Enemy with ten new songs that fit at once into the band’s resonant catalog while infusing fresh energy into that signature sound. $19.50 DAY OF SHOW $25.00 Info - http://www.thenationalva.com/events/detail/311057.

Virginia PrideFest at Brown's Island

Virginia Pride was founded by a group of loyal and active community members in the mid-70's, with a goal to bring awareness of the community, promote diversity and enable unity among the Richmond LGBTQ community members. Today, Virginia Pride's scope is statewide, and its annual PrideFest, which began as a small community event at the Farmer's Market, has evolved into a 10,000+ person celebration of the Commonwealth's vibrant LGBTQ community and its allies. “We saw an opportunity to grow the event in 2014, and we’re already seeing PrideFest 2016 shaping up to be an even more incredible event for the LGBTQ community of the Commonwealth and its allies” PrideFest, as always, is family-friendly, free and open to the general public, regardless of how you identify. RVA Youth Pride, which began in 2014 with the move to Brown's Island, will coincide with PrideFest and feature a youth and family-focused lineup of entertainment.
