JULY 2017 NEWS!!! It's become increasingly obvious that even just doing weekend shows, I am not keeping up with the listings, so I am going to throw in the towel. I don't get paid for this anyway!! Shows that intrigue me I'll list myself on the Facebook group page, but it's up to you to join that group and post your gigs. See below.
There is a Richmond Music Journal group page on Facebook where you all can join and post your own photos and gigs. There's many photos posted there that I've taken over the years or people gave to me. I don't "friend" musicians I only know through the Journal on my regular Facebook page because that's for the life I'm living now, but feel free to remember old times on the group page, and don't feel insulted if I don't friend you. Unless we spent a lot of time together at some point, I probably will not. But you can follow me on Twitter all you want: www.twitter.com/MarianeMatera, although you will be bored. I don't talk about music there.
The complete 11 years of print copies of the Richmond Music Journal are available on microfilm at the State Library of Virginia and Virginia Commonwealth University library for your researching pleasure. VCU is contemplating putting them online as .pdfs in 2016, so there's that.
The Richmond Music Journal is owned and operated by Mariane Matera since November 1993. The print version of the Journal, a monthly newspaper, was published from November 1993 to Spring 2005. Copyright Gypsy Publishing 1993.
