On a more musical note, here is Lone Bellow's latest video (just released yesterday) for "Bleeding Out":
Saturday is just cccrrrrraaaaazzzzyyyy with stuff to do. I can't recall a day that was more jam packed with events and bands.
If your kids (or you) like trains, you can head to either the Ashland/Hanover Visitor Center or Richmond's Staples Mill station to celebrate National Train Day. It'll run from 11 AM to 4 PM. There will be giveaways and activities at either place.
Beer or wine? Take your pick. There is a festival for whatever your libation desire might be.
Down at Historic Malvern in Midlothian, the 3rd Annual Virginia Hops & Barley Festival takes place from 1 PM to 8 PM. There will be 30 VA craft beers to sample. Tix are $15 in advance, $20 at the gate. Your admission gets you unlimited beer tastings. Here's the band lineup:
- Andrew Ali and Last Night's Blues Band
- The Mike Lucci Band
- Albert Castiglia (2012 Blues Music Awards (BMA) nominee)
- The Nighthawks (2011 BMA Acoustic Album of the Year, though they will probably be rocking you electric)
- Mikey Junior
Over at The Camel at 9 PM on Saturday, folksy Americana band Luray will appear along with Low Branches and Nick Coward & The Last Battle. Show starts at 9 and it's $5 to get in. Here they are playing "What Becomes":
Last but not least on Saturday, Allman Brothers tribute band, Skydog, will be at Capital Ale House. Doors will open at 8, show starts at 9, tix are $7 in advance, $10 day of show. Here they are doing "Statesboro Blues":
Before we leave, HERE are 9 Reasons George Harrison was the funniest Beatle. If you haven't seen the magnificent document on George Harrison, Living In the Material World, do so immediately.
I'll see you at Friday Cheers and then Skydog on Saturday. Have a great weekend!
