Calendar for 11/9-11/11
Hey folks, we’ve encountered some technical issues with our normal calendar system, so I’m working hard to get together a list of good-time events for you and yours this weekend. Take a gander at the list below, and let us know if we missed anything!
Loni Love at the Funny Bone.
Funny Bone 7:30. – $20.
Love focuses on urban and plus sized jokes; not something I usually gravitate toward, but the few videos I’ve seen of her seem pretty funny. She’s a Chelsea Lately regular – anyone that get’s CL’s vote is okay in my book. Give her a chance tonight at The Funny Bone.
Bio Ritmo at Balliceaux
Balliceaux’s cool/business casual atmosphere is usually a good time as-is, but throw Bio Ritmo in the mix and you’ve got yourself a good night of dancing and drinks. After 21 years of quality salsa jams, it’s worth your time to spend an evening bathing in their tunes.
Destroy All Monsters with Live Music by Goldrush
VMFA 6:30 – 9 $8 ($5 for members)
Enjoy this campy Japanese sci-fi flick, the ninth film in the Godzilla series, accompanied by live music from Goldrush. Wall-of-Sound at no extra charge! This event is a special collaboration between VMFA’s Performing Arts Department and Adult Programs Department.
The Earth’s miscreant monsters — Godzilla, Rodan, Mothra, Anguirus, Minilla, and others — have been incarcerated on an isolated island. All heck breaks loose when the Kilaaks, a race of female aliens, free the beasts to decimate civilization. Earth must regain control from the monsters to avert the ultimate battle, while the space dragon King Ghidorah and a flying flaming mystery object lurk menacingly. 89 minutes. Director: Ishiro Honda. 1968. Shown with English subtitles only.
The Richmond Marathon
7AM – 3PM

For many RVA inhabitants, you’ll be involved in this event in one of three ways:
1 – running – GOOD FOR YOU THATS AWESOME!
2 – cheering for your friends who are running
3 – stuck in traffic because you live inside the race track.
Either way, it should be a blast. more info available here.
Annual Truffle Feast

2:30–3:30 p.m. $12; $10 for members

RSVP online or to firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone to (804) 644-3041, ext. 100. (The tour may last up to 90 minutes)
Studio Two: Duo Concertant
Richmond Ballet, 4:00 PM
$20.00 – $40.00
Choreographer George Balanchine and composer Igor Stravinsky collaborated over the course of six decades, creating works that ushered in a new era in both music and dance. Duo Concertant exemplifies the interaction between the choreographer and composer: the dancers perform on stage with the musicians, at times pausing to listen to the music between intricate passages in which their movements mirror the music and each other. In the starkly beautiful final movement, the dancers perform within individual circles of light, alone with the music, leaving a final, crystalline image that lingers in the memory. These performances mark the Company premiere of this landmark Balanchine ballet.
