Cheick Hamala Diabate, Drivin N Cryin

Thursday night before the Folk Fest in Richmond and what does that mean? Well it means another episode of the Richmond Roots Music Sessions. This one is at the Capital Ale House downtown and will feature Cheick Hamala Diabate (w. african blues and dance music) - with - Antero (reggae). The show starts at 8 and tix are $10. Here is Cheick's song "Wanto Doke". This music will totally get you movin'.


Also, Thursday night, Drivin' N Cryin and Horsehead play Alley Katz. BTW, Alley Katz, I hate the little music bit you play every time I change the page. If you must have it, please leave it just on your home page. It gets old real fast. Anyway, the show starts at 8 PM and tix are $15. DNC are a hard rockin' Southern rock band in the vein of Black Crowes, Neil Young, Gov't Mule, Allman Brothers, Wilco, Soul Asylum, or The Replacements. They had a minor radio hit back in the early 90s with "Fly Me Courageous". I always like that one. Here's the link to the video (can't embed it): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w3wbdld2vQQ.

That's it for me tonight. Back tomorrow.
