It’s finally almost here. The Subterranea Collective along with Sounds of RVA and Gallery 5 are INCREDIBLY proud to present the Subterranea Showcase Volume 01!
Two shows in one night, some of your favorite Sub/RVA bands and artists, and amazing original comic book art.
This is a big deal for us here at Sub; we’ve been hoping to put together a night like this for a long time (since we started Subterranea) and September 7th is finally the night. We hope all of you guys will come out and join us.
Gallery 5 Show
The first show of the night will take place at Gallery 5 as a part of their First Friday’s season kick off. Houdan the Mystic, Brother Wolf, Way Shape or Form, and Cheyenne will be performing while original comic book art is displayed as an exhibit upstairs.
Bug House Show
Directly after the Gallery 5 show, the party will be moving to the Bug House in Jackson Ward to continue the music. Phantoms, 8t88, Lotus Grid (first Richmond show) and Mirror Kisses (Harrisonburg) will be performing into the wee hours of the night.
Oh yeah, and both of these shows are absolutely FREE! We’ll be doing more of these in the future to feature the rest of our bands/visual artists, so keep an eye out for another in a couple of months.
Thank you guys so, so much for all of your support so far. This night is for you; as a thank you for being all about your music and art scene and doing what you can to keep it going. Reblog this, tell all of your friends and be here. It will be an amazing night.
See you there.
The next installment of Subterranea TV is a live video of Way, Shape or Form performing Option House from their new record (one of many we’ve been working really hard to put out)
Reblog this, tell all your friends because we think this is going to be one of your favorite albums this year.
Subterranea TV’s second edition features Antiphons; Brian Dove of Brother Wolf has been working on some music and we love it. The Subterranea Sessions are meant to profile the more intimate side of each of our bands and this is the first edition. This is called, “A Sun to Stand Still” and the video was directed both by Brian and Tommy Terrell. Share this with your friends.
Navi - Navi EP
The boys of Navi have released a new self-titled EP. The EP’s thrilling and bombastic, and it will make a killer soundtrack to grilling on the 4th. Consisting of just two dudes (Kyle Flanagan on drums and Jon Hawkins on guitar), Navi is easily one of the most sought-after DIY acts in 2012. “Explosions in the Guy” alludes to Explosions in the Sky’s exciting and (mostly) instrumental guitar-and-drums post-rock.
^ New NAVI. First of many Sub releases this summer. *HeLLa* good. Download it.
Night Idea, Phantoms, Minarets and M6 at the Camel tonight. $5/8pm
This is going to be a good one. New music from Phantoms and Night Idea, M6 is ready to jam and Minarets is coming from Brooklyn! If possible, bring some extra cash to buy stuff from Minarets. Get them to their next stop!
See you there. <3
Hey guys, sorry for being so quiet for the last month or so. We’re cooking up a lot of cool stuff to give you guys in the next few months. New releases from the majority of Subterranea bands, new videos, short films, you name it, we’re probably working on it and we hope you enjoy all of it!
This is the inaugural post for Subterranea TV; Tigerlamp’s Nobody Is Anymore. This is a track from Tigerlamp’s upcoming split with Yefim.
We’re going to be using this platform to release videos, short films, or anything else visual that any of our members create. Reblog this post, share it with your friends and most importantly, enjoy it!
