5:15 pm - 9:30 pm
This event combines two things I love: railroads and Earth!
Railroad Earth is a bluegrass-influenced American band formed in Stillwater, New Jersey in 2001. Their music combines elements of progressive bluegrass, folk, rock, country, jazz, celtic and other Americana influences. Recognized as “carrying on the tradition of improvisational, genre-spanning music laid forth by the Grateful Dead,” Railroad Earth is known for lyrical songwriting and extensive live improvisation.
Railroad Earth will be playing at the historic National Theater (“The National”) in downtown Richmond. Let’s check ’em out!
Tickets: General admission tickets are $23 and can be purchased at the box office or online from AXS.com. There is a $2 “facility fee” for all tickets and a $9 “convenience fee” for tickets purchased online. My office is a couple of doors down from The National, so if you want to avoid the convenience fee, choose the “Purchase ticket(s) from CVT” option when you RSVP and I’ll be happy to pick up a ticket for you (costs 25 Trail Bucks). Otherwise choose the “I’ll buy my own ticket(s)” option (costs zero Trail Bucks). If CVT buys your ticket and your plans change later, there are NO REFUNDS unless someone else takes your spot.
Theater capacity is 1500, but there is only seating for 300, so be prepared to stand. We can increase our odds of getting a good spot by eating at Vagabond before the show. Vagabond dinner patrons are let in 15 minutes before the doors open to the public. They are located at 700 East Broad St. You must have your ticket with you at the restaurant.
Parking: Parking decks are directly behind the venue as well as metered street parking within walking distance of the venue. The deck at 5th & Marshall is pretty easy to navigate.
