Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art

Today on Home Grown, David and Leslie talk to great musicians doing great music for great causes. First, Angel Metro, Alethea Leventhal – Ships in the Night, and Christina Fleming & Nicole Rimel / Please Don’t Tell come on the show to talk about their joint benefit concert at the Southern Cafe and Music Hall. We talk to the quartet about how they came to share the bill on this concert and about their beneficiary — The Women’s Initiative. We also get some thoughts about why it’s so rare to see concerts that only have female acts (and about how it’s not the important thing to just think of them that way). Next, Jaewar from Vibe Riot returns to the show, because it’s time for Vibe Fest 2019: Unity Vibes! This year, Vibe Fest is a part of Charlottesville’s Unity Days. We talk to Jaewar about what he has learned from producing three previous Vibe Fests, about what 2019 holds, and what he hopes the future of Vibe Riot will be. We’ve got your musical options set this coming week on Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art.

Home Grown is heard on 94.7 WPVC the Progressive Voice of Charlottesville, Sundays from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m.

Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art

Today on Home Grown, we’re back after the snow turned one week off into two! That’s okay. David and Leslie are primed and ready to welcome two new guests to the show. First we have a whole crew to talk about Live Arts Theatre’s upcoming production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time. Director Bryan Close and actor Mendy St. Ours join Jefferson-Madison Regional Library Adult Services Librarian Evan Stankovics to talk about this unique British book that people said could never be successfully adapted. We ask Close and St. Ours about the challenge of performing an unorthadox script based on an unorthadox novel. Next, it’s Angel Metro in the studio! She’s just released her new album DARK DAYS BRIGHT LIGHTS. We talk to Angel about the transition from playing in the Goth Rock band Gild the Mourn to doing this solo eletronic music project. We also talk to members of her live band Tom Lynch and Chad VanPelt about what it took to bring Angel’s sonic vision to life. And somewhere in the midst of all this, David adopts a new crimefighting personna! It’s a new year, and there’s new art to bring to you on Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art.

Home Grown is heard on 94.7 WPVC the Progressive Voice of Charlottesville, Sundays from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m.

Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art

On today’s Home Grown it gets more than a little political as David Vaughn Straughn and Leslie M. Scott-Jones debrief after a night of neo-Nazis and Proud Boys, which leads them right into their conversation with Angel Metro, one of the organizers of C’Ville’s Goth Night, who, in her other life, has had to deal with the growing social hostilities. Meanwhile Clinton takes a second look at New City Arts’ Housing2Home program with Program Coordinator Ellie Roller. Their new exhibit shows what people have done in the program and you can check it out while walking your dog! It’s an up, down, and slightly chaotic Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art.

Home Grown is heard on 94.7 WPVC the Progressive Voice of Charlottesville, Sundays from 10 AM to 11 AM.
