What’s Booming: Goat Boy Goes First
And a parade of drama, music, and R&R follows
Goat Boy, Covid Bride, an Average White Band, a Rebellion, and a Conspiracy – there’s nothing ho-hum about these events in Richmond, Virginia! All in this week’s What’s Booming: Goat Boy Goes First.
Thursday, July 7 at 8 p.m. at the National, Richmond
Evidently, every SNL alum has put the word out that Richmond loves stand-up comedy. Jim Breuer was a regular from 1995 to 1998 – remember Goat Boy? He’s also on the list of Comedy Central’s “100 Greatest Standups of All Time.”
Rachel Marrs: Covid Bride
Friday, July 8 and Saturday, July 9 at 8 p.m. each night in the Mill Room at Swift Creek Mill Theatre, S. Chesterfield

Jammin’ on the James featuring The Whiskey Rebellion
Saturday, July 9 at 6 p.m. at the Wilton House Museum, Richmond
Spend at pleasant summer evening sitting on the bluff at Wilton House. Enjoy the views of the James as well as Whiskey Rebellions’ fusion of bluegrass and jazz. Bring a blanket and a picnic dinner and make it a beautiful date night or bring the family. There’ll be face painting as well as complimentary tours of Wilton before the concert.
The Average White Band
Saturday, July 9 at 7:30 p.m. at the Beacon Theatre, Hopewell
Break out your best polyester and head on over to Hopewell. If you can never get enough of 70s disco or Scottish funk, then this Average show is just what you’ve been longing for.
Latin Jazz Conspiracy
Saturday, July 9 at 8 p.m. at Dogwood Dell, Richmond
Sitting on the lawn at the Dell on a warm summer night and listening to music – it’s a decades-old Richmond tradition.
