MONDO ITALIA DANCE PARTY 2!!!

19 04 2011

Thursday, April 28, 2011
Performance at Balliceaux
10:00pm, FREE 21+
203 N. Lombardy, Richmond, VA

www.balliceauxrva.com

Join Richmond band Glows in the Dark as they delve into brand new territory. Inspired by the Italian Crime films of the 1970’s, Glows will present 2 solid sets of grooves taken from these films in a format that’s very new to the band. Playing in front of a backdrop of sex and violence from these films, they will treat the material as a DJ would—-transitioning seamlessly between grooves to keep the people dancing. Dancing? That’s right, Glows will leave behind their free form experimentation, in order to properly keep the crowd moving, and honor the great Italian groovesmiths of yore! This is an exciting time for Glows, presenting this show for the second time at Balliceaux, and adding guests to help the band do it right. Glows will add Lauren Serpa on flute, and special vocals from Eddie Prendergast and Lydia Ooghe on a few deep cuts! In addition, the great SnowPanda will DJ before the gig and keep everyone grooving between sets!

Join us for this special showcase of RVA talent!

Join Richmond band Glows in the Dark as they delve into brand new territory. Inspired by the Italian Crime films of the 1970’s, Glows will present 2 solid sets of grooves taken from these films in a format unlike anything the band has done before. Playing in front of a backdrop of sex and violence from these films, they will treat the material as a DJ would—-transitioning seamlessly between grooves to keep the people dancing. Dancing? That’s right, Glows will leave behind their free form experimentation, in order to properly keep the crowd moving, and honor the great Italian groovesmiths of yore! This is an exciting time for Glows, and they are very excited to bring this great old music to a whole new audience.





New Year, New Album, New York

5 01 2010

Happy New Year to all! Glows has several exciting things going on, and I think it’s only proper to enlighten the people.

First, on January 19, we will be playing at The Stone in New York. Matana Roberts is curating the whole month of shows, and was kind enough to invite us along with Fight the Big Bull to present a night of music from Richmond. Glows will play at 8pm and Fight the Big Bull at 10pm.

All the deets are on The Stone’s website.

Then from Friday January 22 to Sunday January 24 we will be recording material for our next record. The new record will focus on material that’s been performed live often, but has yet to be put to tape. Right now the song list looks like this:

Beach of the War Gods
The Silence
Revolver
Manhunt
Caliber 9
Gary Glitter > Turtle

There will be more, and it will rule! The best part about this recording is that we will finally be laying down tracks with John Lilley on sax. He’s been a HUGE part of our musical growth, and a phenomenon that has only been experienced LIVE thus far.

We will cap off the last night of recording by playing a show at Commercial Taphouse. A good and just musical week.

Also, you might be wondering what happened to my writing about film. Well, for the past year, I have been writing for RVANews. Most articles are about older films that I love, with a few new ones thrown in for good measure. RVANews wants me to focus on newer films, meaning that my focus on older gems will return to this blog. The nerdery shall continue!





MAY 22!!!!

18 05 2009

We’ve been looking forward to this show for a while, and this Friday it’s finally happening! Fight the Big Bull, Glows with Matana Roberts sitting in, and Matana Roberts solo with video projection! I’ll put the poster below, and it will stay here until after the show. I hope to see everyone out at MUSE. It’s gonna be sweet!

Also, to find out more about the bands and the venue, head over to RVAJazz and check out the “Featured Gig” section.

Finally, this show would not be possible without some very generous local sponsors, which you can find by clicking on their links to the right. Richmond Jazz Society, Ipanema, RVAJazz, and RVANews rule hard!
