Davenport Cabinet, Positive No and Unbutton
This show is a special one.
This story began at an indie record store in Pompton Lakes N.J. called Flipside. Tracy of Positive No worked there from ‘88 to ‘92 and during those years befriended many people, including members of Unbutton andDavenport Cabinet.
The family tree goes like this. Tracy was in Dahlia Seed. Dahlia Seed toured in the ‘90s with Mothman who features Tom of Davenport Cabinet. At the same time Tracy sometimes played in a band called Dunebuggy (also in ‘90s) and recorded a few songs with them. Twenty plus years later they are all still playing music and Tracy’s record label Little Black Cloud Recordsrecently released a Dunebuggy collection.
From these friendships came new friendships. Members of Positive Nobecome friends with members of Coheed and Cambria. When Davenport Cabinet were looking to play some shows down south, this show was born. Friends unite!
* This is Davenport Cabinet’s first show in Richmond, VA.
* This is Unbutton’s first show and features Jon and Keith of Dunebuggy.
* Positive No is happy to be among old friends.

Silent Music Revival
During a Silent Music Revival event a classic silent short film is projected while local musicians act as the live soundtrack.
As an added twist the band does not see the film prior the event and therefore creates an improvised score.
Silent Music Revival
SHERLOCK JR (1924)
“The impeccable comedian directs himself in an impeccable silent comedy…Is this, as some critics have argued, an example of primitive American surrealism? Sure. But let’s not get fancy about it. It is more significantly, a great example of American minimalism”
- Time Magazine
with live musical score by:
THE GREEN BOYS
“The gents play a style of country, meets traveling medicine show, meets rural hoe down. I am not really sure how these guys do it, but they somehow manage to bridge the gap between old time revival music and put a modern twist with certain harmony parts and exquisite recordings.”
- Red Line Roots

California’s Xiu Xiu has just released a collection of Nina Simone covers in an experimental jazz LP titled NINA. Overtly different than Simone’s original work, the album was created to “pay homage and say thank you to the way she has inspired everybody in the group to approach music.” Stream the album in full at USA Today, and look out for Xiu Xiu’s next original release, Angel Guts: Red Classroom, out this February. Listen to the LP’s single, “Stupid In the Dark,” here. Following the release, the band will set out on a month-long tour, hitting locations all across North America through March.
