When we met (on a blind date), Angi made a comment about someone being a big star. Rob responded "Was that an Alex Chilton reference?" to which Angi responded "Are you a Replacements fan?". We say that Alex Chilton brought us together, so we decided to name our house in his honor...and that was well before we ever dreamed of doing house shows.
We only book artists that we are fans of. Our goal is to sell out every show, so a level of name recognition is important. It takes a lot of effort to get the house ready and that effort needs to be worth it for us and the artist.
If you haven't heard of the artist, just trust us! We'll never have anyone here that you won't be entertained by!
We do not. The artist makes 100% of ticket and merch sales. This is a way for us to give back to folks who have given us so much through their art.
We are fortunate to have so much talent in Richmond and we have friends in several local bands. We aren't a venue, we can't host shows every night and we'd never want to turn our friends down.
