We here at Scenic Recovery have been very busy talking and planning with future partnerships we’re very excited about but don’t want to reveal just yet! With that said and now that we have your attention, here are this week’s Top 3!!!
On Friday (8/06) Roanoke band the Situationist headlines a show at the Bazaar with Atlanta’s the Seventh Ring of Saturn. The evening is set to start at 9pm and is $5 at the door. Above is a video for of the Situationist playing two of our favorite songs by them; “Chestnut Tree Cafe” and “Yellow House” live at the Bazaar.
On Saturday (8/06) a venue that Roanoke’s underground scene hasn’t seen in many years opens its doors back up to the possibility of a new venue. The Horseshoe hosts Roanoke’s own Heevahava as the headliner for the bill. Also playing will be Asheville’s Enoch. Opening the show are the six illegitimate sons of Randy Newman, Death Newman. Come out and support this possible new venue for bands in Roanoke and make it happen again! The Horseshoe is located on 1641 9th St., SE. Starting at 8:30pm and costing $5 for three bands. This is a 21 and up venue only.
Opening on August 10th and running through August 21st Studio Roanoke present “Man With Wings”, a play by Ben R. Williams and directed by Kenley Smith. For more details about the run visit Studio Roanoke online. Here’s a synopsis of the play…
“In 1971, a small-town sheriff bears witness to a tragic and inexplicable event. Forty years later, a free-lance writer and investigator of unexplained phenomena arrives at the sheriff’s run-down apartment, desperate to learn the truth behind the so-called “Thunderbird Incident.” But the answer the sheriff offers may not be what the writer hoped for; the truth may be worse by far.”
