White Laces - “Heavy Nights” (video by GalaxyGirl @ WRIR)
WRIR & The Commonwealth of Notions Present: Vol. II on July 14 @ Gallery 5
This is a benefit for WRIR and Gallery 5, two organizations which have helped the music scene in RVA flourish. If you didn’t know, musician/journalist/DJ/etc Shannon Cleary is in his second year of putting together a ridiculous lineup of music for one night at a ridiculously low price. TEN BANDS for $10! Plus, it’s for a good cause. Check out the list of last year’s performers (a number of whom will appear at a show @ Cellar Door a week prior to this gig, 7/6):
Josh Small, Nick Coward and the Last Battle, Ophelia, Orioles, The Veins, Sports Bar, The Trillions, and Amazing Ghost w/ Special Guests (last year’s performers)
Sounds of RVA gets the honor of announcing the first wave of bands that will appear at THIS YEAR’S SHOW!! Drumroll please…………………………..
The first announcement of bands performing will be:
THE MILKSTAINS (RVA gnar-rock, pictured below)
THE BLUE RAJAS (RVA stripped-down-punk duo of sisters)
WHITE LACES (dreamy psychedelic rock from RVA)
White Laces will also be performing with Special Guests (who will be other performers in the night)!
Be sure to watch RVA Playlist and One Way Richmond for the next announcements Wednesday (6/6) and Thursday (6/7), respectively….
