The Shack Up
Join us for the FOURTH ANNUAL Shack Up September 14 and 15, 2018 at The Broadberry.
In an era where people eschew tangibility for technology, Butcher Brown is a ray of hope for the future. They are soldiers of peace, armed with respect for the lineage of Black music, who aren't afraid to push forward. Rooted in the soil of the earth, their music reflects an aesthetic that exists beyond chronology. As anomalous as brown leaves of fall on a spring tree, they cause you to question exactly how a group of relatively “young” men possess such “old” souls.
They are agents of a continuum. A spectrum of color that defies categorical constructs, like that of dusk settling across the evening sky. They are a subtle, yet beautiful, reminder that after the darkness of nightfall, we are soon to expect the promise of the sun.
— Nicholas Payton aka The Savior of Archaic Pop
Calling to mind the soulful, dynamic sounds of 70s giants such as Led Zeppelin, Humble Pie, and Free's early years, Wild Adriatic has won early acclaim from places such as Rolling Stone, USA Today, Relix, American Songwriter, and Guitar World. The debut album Big Suspicious was released in January 2014 and the band has since stayed on the road in support of the effort, logging an impressive 175 live shows in 2014 alone. From headlining blues festivals in Connecticut for a crowd of 10,000 people to a five week European headlining tour to serving as direct support for an impressive list of rock and roll royalty including Grand Funk Railroad, Robert Randolph, Blues Traveler, and many more... Wild Adriatic is a high energy, riffy power trio to rival any you've seen before.The band has built a strong following off of a relentless tour schedule and a powerhouse live show, spending 225+ days on the road and making noteworthy appearances at festivals like SXSW, moe.down, Gathering of the Vibes, and CMJ.
Weekend Plans is a nine-piece group of local Richmond, Virginia musicians who have come together to create an incredible blend of jazz-influenced music, with hints of funk, rock, R&B, and Hip-Hop that will get the crowds moving! The group is comprised of Virginia Commonwealth University students/alumni. Most of the songs performed are original pieces created by the members, with a few covers of classic R&B hits. Some members of the group have shared the stage with bands and musicians in the past like NoBS! Brass Band, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, Jason Mraz, Sara Bareilles, John D'Earth, Rex Richardson, and Groovespot.
