It's been a huge week for the music scene in Charlottesville, and no matter what your taste in tunes is, there's been something for you!
On Tuesday, John Mayer headlined at the John Paul Jones Arena (our basketball arena that doubles as the largest indoor concert venue in Virginia). I heard it was an amazing show, there isn't a bad seat in the house!
On Saturday, Taylor Swift graced us with her presence as the "Fearless" tour swung through Charlottesville. Tickets sold out in under ten minutes, but I was one of the lucky ones who was able to snag an awesome seat for the show! The show was incredible, and we learned that her Grandfather is a UVa alumn; perhaps that's the reason that she donned a UVa basketball jersey for one of her final numbers!
Tonight, Ben Folds will be playing at the Jefferson Theatre on the downtown mall! It's a smaller venue than John Paul Jones, which will be the perfect setting. This is Ben's 2nd trip to C-ville since I've been here, and hopefully I'll be able to find a ticket in the next few hours so I can see him again!
And finally, something to get you excited about the fall, it was announced this week that Lady Gaga will be playing in Charlottesville on September 8th! Get your tickets while you still can!
Bottom Line: If you love music, concerts and screaming at the top of your lungs when Taylor Swift shouts out UVa, then there is plenty for you to get excited about here in C-Ville!
