SOUNDS OF RVA 2ND Anniversary Show!
We are pleased to announce that we will celebrate our 2nd ANNIVERSARY! on 11/15 @ Strange Matter with JOSH SMALL, The Hotdamns (farewell show!), Lightfields, Bearstorm, and Sacred Teachers! Music between sets will be provided by Jamie Lay!
We could not be more excited to share this news!
You must go to this show on Thursday, November 15th!
There will be door prizes, free schwag, great music, and more surprises!
Gull (pictured just above by Toni Marie) is a one-man band virtuoso who recently moved to Philly but keeps his ties here to Richmond. Nathan Rappole is the man behind the mask, and he plays(ed) for Snack Truck, Ultra Dolphins, etc. He will mesmerize with his psychedelic and polyrythmic sounds.
EDIT: Gull will not be performing.
The Hotdamns (pictured just above by Michelle Dosson) will play their final show ever to celebrate Sounds of RVA’s 2 years. The band last played last summer at the now-deceased Sprout, and the band members are gearing up for their hottest damned set ever! You will love country rock after seeing these guys, if you didn’t already.
Lightfields (pictured just above by Sounds of RVA) will party down with ass-kicking rock licks and swoon-worthy saxophone. The original drummer (Mark McDonald) has returned to give the band a new lift and even more mature sound.
Bearstorm (pictured just above by Sounds of RVA) will make Appalachian progressive death metal become your new favorite genre of metal. With a concept album out and another one on the way, Bearstorm is always changing up time signatures yet rocking you straight to the core.
Sacred Teachers (pictured just above) just went through a lineup change, and things are absolutely on point. You may remember the band used to have the prefix of “Boney Loner and.” Mr. Loner is still the frontman, and Lindsay Phillips (The Diamond Center) is on bass; Jamie Lay (Baby Help Me Forget!) is on drums, and Nick Driver (Mr. Loner’s brother) is on guitar. They are sure to rock you, so don’t miss their set!
So come on out Thursday, November 15th to Strange Matter (doors @ 9pm, music @ 10), bring your friends, and party down with Sounds of RVA and friends! It’s only $5!
