In an effort to show his gratitude to the organizers of Macrock, WRIR’s Shannon Cleary has put together a showcase of Richmond artists to raise funds for this year’s event in April. The line-up features Macrock alumni The Snowy Owls joined by hopeful contenders Heavy Midgets, Tungs and Hot Dolphin.
Macrock, the annual music conference in Harrisonburg, Va., has always been a great showcase of new and upcoming bands and Richmond has had its fair share of artists participate over the years. It’s a great way to catch a whole lot of awesome shows in a short time period, so if you’re in the area or want a road trip, head up there.
The benefit show takes place at the Nile on Saturday, Feb. 23.
