Stop studying, Dweeb!-TONIGHT: Let There Be Light

Tonight at PVCC, the annual outdoor show of light-centered and light inspired artwork, Let There Be Light.  There will even be a radio show, available only in a short range of the campus, where anyone can come in and tell their stories about FIRE.  Because we all have them, and they tend to be the most beautiful and the most humiliating.

It will be held from 6-9 pm, so it’s only three hours, makes a good study break and is so rad.  No excuse not to come.  (I have an exam tomorrow.  I am a student too.  No whining)  and it’s totally FREE.

Drive or take the number 23 bus out of the Downtown mall (free with UVA ID)

Savory snacks will also be provided, and while I don’t really know what that entails, it automatically guards against store-bought cupcakes, so I’m in.


Last Minute: BIRDLIPS! Now Tonight! Plus Update

9pm, $7 $10

[Update: Somebody squealed to the fire marshal, so now tickets are $10, and they are limiting them to 40 tickets only.  Sort of a bummer.]

At the Twisted Branch Tea Bazaar! (Post forthcoming), which is located on the downtown mall between 4th and 5th Street at 414 E. Main.

Birdlips is a group comprised of an adorable skinny couple who left Charlottesville for the West coast, but has come back to us, at least for the night on their East coast tour for their upcoming album (they always come back).  The music is catchy, but not too pop-y, and Birdlips produces a sound bigger than the sum of its two parts.

They are playing with Frau Eva and Matthew Hemmerlein.  I have only seen Matthew Hemmerlein play once, and it was pretty incredible.  He plays violin with a lot of loop techniques.  Pretty simplistic and unique.  Lots of Radiohead covers.  And this show is only SEVEN DOLLARS for three bands at a rad place.

Last Minute: William ‘Upski’ Wimsatt at Random Row Books

TONIGHT!  Author and activism William Wimsatt will be reading from his new book Please Don’t Bomb the Suburbs at Random Row Books, located on West Main Street, across from the Greyhound station.  There will be a public workshop at 5:30 and a reading at 7:30.  A reception to follow.

Please come out if you can.  It should be a good time.
