I've got a binder full of shows tonight so let's get started!

People's Blues of Richmond will be at Tobacco Company on Friday night. The show starts at 9:30 and it's FREE. Here they are when they performed at The National on 9/20/12 with horns!

Speaking of horns, over at The Camel on Friday, No BS! Brass Band plays with Larri Branch Agenda who are opening and celebrating the release of their CD, "Labragenda". It's $7 to get in and Larri Branch Agenda  starts the show at 9:30 (doors open at 9). Here's No BS! when they filmed their live DVD (out later this year) at Montrose Studio on 10/7/12:

Also on Friday, Bush League will be at Poe's Pub (THE place to go to watch the NFL on Sundays, especially the Eagles). Show starts at 9 and it's FREE. Here is the audio from the show they recently did on WRIR:

Saturday in Powhatan, it's the 10th Annual Powhatan Festival of the Grape. As the name would imply, this involves wine tasting and drinking from 30 VA wineries, crafts, food and entertainment from Casper and Steve Bassett. It's at Powhatan's Courthouse Square from 11 AM to 6 PM. Tickets are $25 for tasting and $15 for non-tasting.

Neil Young's 26th Annual Bridge School Benefit Concert will be webcast HERE. It'll cost $5 to view the webcast but that's a small price to pay to help a good cause and see acoustic performances from bands like Neil Young & Crazy Horse, Jack White, Guns N' Roses, Flaming Lips, Foster the People, Sarah McLachlan, Ray LaMontagne, Steve Martin & Steep Canyon Rangers, KD Lang, Lucinda Williams & Gary Clark Jr. The webcast will only be on Saturday (they do a Sunday show too but no webcast for that one) starting at 7 PM ET.

Susan Greenbaum Band will be at Ashland Coffe & Tea Saturday night. Show starts at 8 and it's $10 at the door. Here's Susan performing Indigo Girls' "Closer to Fine" with friends Renee Kingan and Jocelyn Oldham earlier this year:

Sunday night, punk provocateur, Henry Rollins, appears at The National. Henry's spoken word show is titled "Capitalism" and will begin at 8 PM (doors open at 7). Tix are $20 - $25.

Warren Haynes' Gov't Mule plays The National on Monday. Doors open at 6, show starts at 7 with the fabulous sacred steel guitar sounds of The Lee Boys (you'll like them if you like Robert Randolph) so get there early. Here's Gov't Mule doing "Time to Confess":

We'll be back with our next dispatch on Monday night to cover some of the big shows next week here in the RVA.

In a shout-out to old school Henry Rollins, here are 29 Amazing Punk Flyers From the 80's.

Have a great weekend!
