I am excited to try on some words, as Camisha Jones and Anthony Amos  host Verbs and Vibes  on Thursday night at the Bridge in Charlottesville. Verbs and Vibes is a hip-hop and spoken word mish-mash of open mic and invitees presenting prepared poetry and some improv, music and musings.

For geeks and other curious people…

The Richmond Astronomical Society wonders where earthlings will go in case of an emergency evacuation during an evening of stargazing called  “Is there any body out there?” The event will be held on Friday at the Science Museum of Virginia. Telescopes provided.

For another type of stargazing head to Lynchburg where co-founder of the Nighthawks and legendary hard rockin’ blues guitarist Jimmy Thackery plays at Ellington’s on Saturday with his latest band, The Drivers.

If you know of something cool coming up, let me know about it at mary@wnrn.org and maybe your event will be featured in the culture connection.

See you out and about,

Mary
