C’ville Music Scene in Post

This Sunday’s Washington Post will feature an article about the Charlottesville music scene. Author Ben Brazil visited and reviewed the music communities of Athens, Chapel Hill, and Our Fair City. He spent time at Twisted Branch, Bang!, Starr Hill Gravity Lounge, writing specifically about Bella Morte, Lauren Hoffman, This Means You, and John D’earth. The author also turns to Mike Friend and Jeff Reynolds, of WNRN, for advice on good local music.

All in all, it amounts to some great exposure for some of the town’s best musicians and venues.

  • I miss Trax. I remember seeing Feul there before they were ‘big’.

  • It’s true, nothing in town has yet approached Trax for quality of shows. Among the groups I remember seeing there were Pavement, Tricky, Elliot Smith, Yo La Tango, Cibo Matto and Guided By Voices. You could count on them for at least 3 or 4 decent shows a year. Right now C-ville has nothing comparable.
