More press for “Dr. Rock” [March 6]


Carey Sargent, the UVA sociology grad student who studies music scenes in Charlottesville and Richmond, and who C-VILLE dubbed “Dr. Rock” in a February 5 profile, is featured in the new issue of Richmond’s Style Weekly. Writer Brent Baldwin notes that Sargent sees a marked difference between the two cities when it comes to her topic of choice: “Sargent feels that Charlotttesville has a tighter, more positive local music scene, although it’s always in flux, with students coming and going. Richmond seems to have an aesthetic of ‘alienation and frustration’ that can make for relevant music, she says, but reflects a lack of communication across not only genres, but also class and racial groups.” Phew. Academia has never sounded so cool.
