Richmond’s artistic culture will embrace pop culture at the second-annual RVACon during the weekend starting Oct. 24.
It seems preposterous to call the era that gave us “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,” “Keeping up with the Kardashians” and a dozen different “Real Housewives” a golden age. While in many ways, the term “idiot box” seems more suitable than ever, there is no denying there has been a notable shift in tone and content in television. Multicam sitcoms and police procedurals, long-time cable channel staples, are decreasing in number in favor of increasingly inventive serial dramas, the most successful of which, like Breaking Bad or Game of Thrones, become genuine pop culture phenomenons.
Amaranth Arts returns from an international tour to present a diverse selection of new and old emotionally-arching works entitled “Falling Back to Grace” Sept. 11-13 at Grace Street Theater.
Owners and patrons of Richmond’s “social oasis” for music, food and drinks, The Camel, will continue to wait on their zoning application, which would allow them to play live music until the early hours of the morning.
