Friday night at The Republic and Wednesday night at Cary St. Cafe, check out Southern Belles with their country funk jam rock doing covers of The Band, Phish, Grateful Dead, and The Beatles among others. I've seen these guys a couple times over the last few weeks and they can really bring it. A lot of fun and bring your boogie shoes. And both shows are FREE. At the Friday night show, the band will play three sets including one set where they cover the Grateful Dead's epic album, "Workingman's Dead" in it's entirety. And they can pull it off.
No BS! Brass Band will be at The Camel on Friday night. No BS will be playing some new tunes from their upcoming album "RVA All Day". Cover is $7 and the show starts at 9 with the James River High School Jazz Band so get out their early and support the kids. Here's No BS! doing "Jackpot":
On Saturday, you can celebrate Mother Earth at the Richmond Earth Day Festival in the Manchester section of town. Lots of activities for the kids, beer and wine for adults, a Flood Wall climb and zip line, and of course some music. Here is the band lineup:
