Founded by local music fixture Prabir Mehta, the Ghost of Pop one-night showcase takes a moment to focus on the often overlooked pop-rock community and serves as a pre-holiday gathering of musical friends and family. The night features some of the best local bands in the city including My Old Ways, The Awesome Few, Long Arms, The Northerners, Hypercolor, Goldrush and Black Girls. The show starts at 6 p.m.
The event benefits HomeAgain, a local emergency shelter and service provider for the homeless.
The night will also feature a raffle featuring prizes from the participating bands and local Richmond, VA businesses. Raffle tickets can be purchased with cash or with a donation of blankets, coats and other warm clothing for HomeAgain.
The best part that I ‘m really excited about is in the weeks leading up to the event RVA Playlist will host exclusive, live video performances of each of the bands featured in Ghost of Pop done by Overcoast Music for you to enjoy.
