Jax, the Shadowbox, Guerrilla Playhouse and more!

We hope everyone had a fun and safe Independence Day! Here’s a few of the things going on this week starting with our Top 3….

On Friday (7/8) Blacksburg label/ promotion company Flannel Gurl Records hosts a great (and rather long) line-up at Jax. Two of the names on the bill (the Emotron & the Bastards of Fate) should be worth for going alone! Combine those two with the weirdo-folk of Andy the Doorbum, Rotting Obscene’s own blend of death metal along with more weirdo-folk from Deral Fenderson and this looks to be as eclectic of a show as it is entertaining. Come out to Jax in Blacksburg and check out this show starting at 8pm, running til midnight. $5 for five bands.


On Saturday (7/9) Roanoke microcinema the Shadowbox throws its second sweded film fest. This go around the theme is the great decade of the 80’s! To “swede” a film is to make a really low-budget under ten minute version of an entire movie. This idea was taken from the Michel Gondry film “Be Kind Rewind”. So come out to the Shadowbox on Saturday to check out some hilarious footage and maybe see a friend or two on the screen as well! This starts at 8pm, $5.

On Sunday (7/10) Studio Roanoke’s Guerrilla Playhouse hosts a short play followed by a folk show. “Kong: A Goddamn 30Ft Gorilla” is a play by local Adam Hahn. I haven’t heard much about this play but I can tell you because of the title and poster alone, I’m going. What I do know more about is who’s playing after Hahn’s play. Local folk acts the Delta Function will be playing with fellow Roanokers and friends the John Barry Conception and the Polfelt Three. The play starts at 7pm with the show following at 8pm. $5 gets you in to both shows.

Here’s some other great things happening this week…
