Activate! is a concert calendar for your ears. Do you want to go to a show? Every week, I preview the next 7 days on Richmond’s live music calendar. Every band you hear on Activate! is playing in the River City sometime that week and you’ll get info as to when and where the show is happening.
The Richmond music scene is one of the best in the world. In order for it to maintain and grow, we need people like you to go to live shows. That includes supporting both local and touring bands. Every night of the week, you can catch a spectrum of live bands playing music that you want to hear. But, it’s not easy for musicians OR venues. So, tune in to Activate! every Thursday from 5 to 7pm, hear a band that sparks your interest, and go to the show!
