Wandering heart: Remembering Gabe Allan

Over the past few weeks, Charlottesville artists have been mourning the loss and celebrating the life and work of one of their own.

Gabe, who grew up mostly in Crozet and Charlottesville, lived […]

Born and raised in Philadelphia, Andy Faith’s favorite thing to do as a kid was visit the Philadelphia Museum of Art to look at Marcel Duchamp’s found art pieces.

Wild ride: Buckle up, The Falsies are back

It’s hard to decide what deserves your attention at a Falsies concert. Is it the music? The musicians themselves, constantly swapping guitars for saxophones, for drums, for keyboards? Or is it band founder Lance Brenner in his yellow chicken suit, gesticulating wildly while shoving a microphone into the beak to sing? Maybe you’re wondering how […]
