"Ragtime the Musical"; A couple's take on an American musical

Written by Skye Zentz.

I'd like to start off by clarifying that my husband Gabriel and I are each somewhat biased reviewers of this particular show. In my case, I grew up on it. Ragtime was the first NEW Broadway show I saw as a young tween in the nineties, and I listened to the soundtrack tirelessly through my middle school and high school years.

Greenbrier, Western Branch, Deep Creek, South Norfolk, Great Bridge, Hickory - all of these areas are unique and the people who live there are a little fierce about it.

At O'Connors: Psychadelia, Southern Gothic, and Country Jams - A Review of the Mirrors, Susto, and the Futurebirds

Written by Jeff Hewitt.

Certainly some barbaric sliver of my inner bastard yearns to write a piece so brutal, so blindingly scathing, that it chases a band not only out of town but entirely out of the music business altogether. To craft a collection of words so vile that it summons forth the furiously indignant shade of Hendrix. Setting their instruments ablaze while we all cackle with unsuppressed glee. Roasting staypuffs over the smoldering remains of their o'erpriced Gibsons.
