Embark on an original adventure in a realm ruled by quests, masterfully crafted brews, RVA community, magic, and 20-sided dice!

Don’t know the first thing about casting spells? We have you covered - it's all in the wrist flick! Whether you’ve always wanted to try D&D or have been playing for years, all skill levels welcome!

Bring your own LEVEL 3 adventurer, grab one of our pre-made character sheet on arrival, or come early and we can walk you through creating the adventurer of your dreams!

We'll be playing Fifth Edition (for those who are curious).

We don't have signups or reservations because we want everyone to feel comfortable dropping in and playing D&D, but our tables do fill fast and we are limited by the venue size so we do operate on a first come, first serve policy. Thank you for understanding!

Afro-zen Allstars

The lovely and haunting sounds created in Ethiopia during the "Golden Age" (late '60's- mid '70's) serve as the primary inspiration of Afro-Zen Allstars. This is music that takes hold of both mind and body and never let's go, and Afro-Zen Allstars present it in updated form, with compelling new arrangements and world-class soloists.

Zoo Trippin' with Dreadnot

Zoo Trippin’ will be rocking Garden Grove Brewing & Urban Winery with Dreadnot Sunday Dec. 8th!

Trying to pigeonhole Zoo Trippin’ into one little genre box is an exercise in futility. They have an ever-evolving sound, although their groove is infused with a solid blues/funk flavor base. Comprised of Tony Casa (vocals), Lynn Roose III (guitar), Stephen Hatmaker (drums), Alex Kessis (bass) and Zachary Pontzer (guitar), Zoo Trippin’ will get your feet movin’ in no time. While the band is definitely high-energy, they have a tight sound that feeds off itself, the members of the band and the fans in attendance at their shows.

Desert Sharks | Kill the Druid | The Mitras | Asylum 213

Brooklyn-based garage rock with punky and surfy vibes, as well as recent signees to Substitute Scene Records, Desert Sharks return to Richmond, VA to grace the city with a Thursday night of rock n' roll thrills and chills. Having spent years playing countless shows, hitting cities across the U.S. on tours, and maintaining a relentless DIY work ethic, the Sharks are an unstoppable force of lyrical passion, high-energy performance, and catchy riffs sure to make you dance up out of your seat! They are set to release their full-length debut in the Fall of 2019, but you can hear their newest single "crazycrazycrazy," from their June 24th, 2014-released EP, "Template Hair," along with many other surfy tunes, at the link below:

https://desertsharks.bandcamp.com/album/template-hair

Joining Desert Sharks at Garden Grove Brewing & Urban Winery are:

Asylum 213, an avant-garde, experimental, sonic-wonderland blend of ethereal vocals and instrumentals paired with moments of heavy rock and gritty, harsh guitar riffs. Typically a one-man solo act, having existed from as far back as 2010 and only playing out live under Asylum 213 from 2016, Dylan Lawson exhibits a unique blend of synthwave, darkwave, grunge, shoegaze, metal, alternative, pop, and prog rock in his writing style, along with being an amateur comedian the rest of the time. Asylum 213's most recent release, "November Blood," from November 10th, 2018 can be found on bandcamp at: https://asylum213.bandcamp.com/album/november-blood

Kill The Druid, a dazzling experimentation on post-rock/alternative, filled with enchanting vocals and melodies to boot. Kill The Druid put on quite the attention-grabbing show with their driving live performances and unexpected moments of instrument changes during as well. A wide-range of influences inspiring their music, Kill The Druid remain distinct and original in their writing and performance, and are sure to stick out with virtually any crowd they play for. You can get a feel for their sound by listening to their collection of demos and singles on their bandcamp: https://killthedruid.bandcamp.com/album/singles

and The Mitras, a fairly new, but well-seasoned 3-piece collective of lively musicians performing a mix of post-punk, garage rock, and grunge. From catchy choruses, to headbanger riffs, all the way to dancey beats, The Mitras are sure to get stuck in your head in no time, probably even enough to get you to come out to their next show and every one after! Word on the street is they do covers, too...incase you want to be that guy to jokingly request "Freebird," but then actually hear it played back to you! (Disclaimer: there is no guarantee they take requests or will actually play "Freebird" for you, and I think it's safe to say we're all okay with that!) With catchy, hooking originals and fun, familiar covers, The Mitras are definitely an upcoming, solid act you'll want to catch live and pay attention to. While it appears there is nothing studio-recorded to be found by them at the moment, you can hear a live performance (which honestly sounds good enough to BE studio-recorded, really) of their song "Sandpaper," from their performance at MAYO FEST 2019, right here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ZAs8VNEApI

More details, such as exact start time, finalized flier, and more TBA! Share the event around and come out and hear some good music by great people!

The Brothers Gillespie

The Brothers will be in Richmond, VA giving a healthy dose of Slacker Country.

"Good Things Come in Threes. Blending a range of influences from Waylon Jennings to The Pixies, Conway Twitty to The Grateful Dead, The Brothers Gillespie create their own brand of rock n’ roll they have dubbed “Slacker Country”.

From fuzzy rompers, to ballads sung as sweet as honeysuckle, Aaron, Davis, Clay, and Zack enjoy bringing their brotherhood to the stage, and with every performance seek to bring the audience into the fold as one of The Brothers Gillespie."
