Every year, I put together a list of the best albums by Richmond bands up. And every year, there are some stellar records that you absolutely must hear. This year’s list had some truly amazing albums on it and three of the artists featured will be playing together for one night at Balliceaux.
The Trillions, White Laces and Anousheh have all had a great year, not only with their respective albums, but also getting eyes on the Richmond music scene. They’ll also be joined by the amazing DJ Big Chair. Come close out 2012 with a night of great RVA music. We invite everyone featured on the Best Albums of 2012 list and of course, all their fans and music lovers to come hang out, listen to some great bands and have fun with some of the best music of Richmond.

ANDREW LEAHEY AND THE HOMESTEAD
Technically, he’s not in Richmond anymore but he grew up here, plays around RVA often, most of the band is from here and it’s a really good album.
It’s that time of year again. The ever-popular Ghost of Pop Festival is returning for its eighth year. This concert features some of the finest pop rock acts Richmond has to offer and it’s always a great show. And it’s a benefit for HomeAgain, a local homeless shelter in the city.
This year includes a special reunion show by horn metal outfit Sau as well as Goldrush, Andrew Leahey & The Homestead, The Trillions, My Old Ways and Herro Sugar. DJ OUTSIDER will be spinning the wheels all night. Plus, it’s my birthday weekend and Prabir and Treesa from Goldrush have promised me a special birthday song.
It all takes place at Gallery5 on Saturday, Dec. 8. Listen and download tracks by the artists playing this year’s Ghost Of Pop below.
This is where you need to be tonight.
I feel like I’ve been waiting forever for this video to be released. After a barrage of teases, photos and hints, the video for “Crtl-X Crtl-V” is finally here. And it’s bleepin’ awesome. Watch below.
Go see these guys. I’ve been listening to their music non-stop since learning about the show. Plus, it’s got the Trillions, who are just incredible and Black Brothers, who play some great psychedlic rock.
While I don’t think we should be celebrating the return of lack of parking spaces and students who can’t cross a street properly, the show will be pretty bad ass.
Reason #5,321 why The Trillions are AWESOME.
The band is hiding USB drives full of their music and other fun surprises in places around town
Free USB (plus USB benefits) hunt is on, and we’re going to be hiding some of these around RVA for the next few days…. If you find one, please send us a Facebook message ASAP, or post a celebratory pic on our wall if you’re not feeling shy.
Clue 1: There’s only ONE WAY to see this sticker, and it would make a great ADDITION, especially if your name is SCOTT.
Clue 2: (see pic).
Update: Apparently this one has already been found. That was fast. Clues for USB #2 will be posted tomorrow on the band’s Facebook and Twitter pages.
