We have a fun weekend lined up for you. Here’s a list of some of the best events happening around town. It is the perfect time to plan a cozy getaway to the mountains.
Think & Drink Trivia at the Southside Junction Tap House
7:30pm – 9:30pm
GLOW Grace Baptist Church
Randy Gilkey at The Southside Junction Tap House
Opposite Box at The Grove
8 pm -11pm
Opposite Box returns to The Grove WV for two sets of dirty funk and psychedelic rock!
Opposite Box is an American experimental rock band from Chattanooga, Tennessee known for seamlessly blending 70s-inspired progressive rock and contemporary jazz-funk with a variety of shifting genres and psychedelic soundscapes.
Although the band is primarily popular among the US jam band and music festival scene, OB has little in common with the music of contemporary jam band mainstays. Influenced by the diverse sounds of artists like Frank Zappa, Parliament Funkadelic, Galactic, Primus, the Mars Volta, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Colonel Bruce & the Aquarium Rescue Unit, Opposite Box is focused less on improvised jamming and more on unique songwriting, biting and playful lyricism and high energy live performances that hearken back to the glory days of rock and roll.
