Wild Nothing, Sarah White, Heritage fest and lots more

On Sunday night the Blacksburg-based indie rock act Wild Nothing plays at the Southern. The group released a U.K. in the 1980s-indebted record in 2010 that rose to the top of many best-of-they-year lists, and with good reason: some of dem tunes is way-way good, ‘specially the one posted below. Also on the bill is a band from Richmond called Black Girls, voted "Best Band" by the readers of Style Weekly.

Two of our best local songwriters, Sarah White (fresh of the Dave Matthews Band’s Caravan) and her sideman Ted Pitney, play a fun summer co-bill tonight, also at The Southern. What more to say about these two? What more? Details here.

The Heritage Theatre Festival kicked off at the beginning of the month, and its first production, My Fair Lady, runs through the weekend at UVA’s Culbreth Theatre. Check out a review of the show here; sounds like the Heritage season, as usual, is doing good work.

Opening tonight and running through the weekend (and the next several, as the case may be) is the Wintergreen Summer Music Festival and Academy at the Nelson County Resort, which hosts a staggering array of classical music events centered this year on Mediterranean culture. For a complete calendar of events, have a look-see here.
