Events This Week

Summer-like temperatures, friends and events galore... it's a solid week ahead, Richmonders!

"And Their Music Lives On…A Recital Presenting Music by Composers Suppressed by the Nazis" is a free concert hosted by the Richmond Symphony on Tuesday, May 31st, 7 pm at the Virginia Holocaust Museum at 2000 E Cary St. Don't miss an opportunity to hear pianist David J.L. Fisk and violinist Jocelyn Adelman perform.

Balliceaux is hosting several shows this week including Fight the Big Bull on Wednesday, No BS! Brass Band on Thursday, Amazing Ghost on Friday and Meschiya Lake + The Little Big Horns (Meschiya Lake website) on Saturday. Meschiya Lake = New Orleans, killer vocals and what else, the tuba! These shows begin at 10 or 10:30 pm - see Balliceaux's facebook page for details.

June 3 is First Friday and one of my favorite galleries, Ghostprint Gallery, is hosting the Richmond Illustrator's Club 4th Juried Show. Stop by between 7 and 10 pm.

If you're not at Balliceaux on Saturday night for Meschiya Lake, then head to Sprout at 1 N Morris St in the Fan to hear the sweet sounds of Fuzzy Baby and Miwa Gemini. This free show starts at 10 pm; see the facebook event page for details.

Broad Appetit returns this Sunday, June 5, to downtown Broad Street between Monroe and Adams Streets! $3 a plate lets you try Ettamae's CafeIndia K'raja, and Lady N'awlins in one afternoon.

The Greek Festival is here! Thursday, June 2, through Sunday, June 5, you can get your fill of spanakopita, souvlaki, kataifi (my favorite) and baklava, just to name a few. Near the intersections of Malvern and Grove Avenues in the Museum District, the annual festival offers food and performances of many types.

Sneak peak: this event takes place next week but mark your calendars early - The BIG Show! is happening next Wednesday, June 8!
