Local Music Check-In: Ross Schiller of Yearbook Taco

January 28, 2015 by


Yearbook Taco has drawn locals through its doors with the promise of delicious tacos and good tunes. Yes, tunes, and a variety of tunes at that. Depending on the night of the week, you can find a DJ spinning vinyl, playing 90s hits, hip hop, or house/EDM, or a troupe of singer/songwriters sharing their songs […]

In a city with no shortage of music halls and bars touting live music, the last thing anyone might think to do is start another venue, but that is exactly what Jayon Falsini did last year when he opened the Main Street Annex. “The space was offered to my booking and promotional company Magnus Music […]

Most of us in Cville have been to a show at the Tea Bazaar. You probably bought the ticket to see a friend’s band open for someone you had never heard of and wound up staying until the end because that band turned out to be awesome. For Amanda Laskey, Booking Agent/Promoter for the Twisted […]

Music Venue Check-in: The Southern

February 25, 2013 by


The Southern Café and Music Hall has been a strong driving force in Charlottesville’s music scene over the last few years, bringing in national touring acts and showcasing great local talents. Owner Andy Gems has been running the “small” 300 cap venue nearly single-handedly since its opening after Gravity Lounge closed, almost four years ago. […]
