Richmond, Virginia label Citrus City Records is throwing a double header two year anniversary celebration over the next two Friday nights, taking place at two RVA venues, Gallery 5 and Strange Matter, respectively. Each night will feature Citrus City artists, including local label staples like Lance Bangs (formerly Colin Thibodeauxx), as well as out-of-towners, like Nashville’s Dream Wave.
The label, co-founded by Rene Franco and Manny Lemus, issues limited run cassette releases of both local and international artists. Gaining traction through releases with groups like Colin Thibodeauxx and Camp Howard, they have expanded to a catalogue of around 25 releases. After last year’s sold-out one year anniversary show with Vundabar headlining, the Citrus City boys are sure to have a few tricks up their sleeves for this year.
Night 1 (January 20th) at Gallery 5
Night 2 (January 27th) at Strange Matter
TBA (Special Guest)
Stay tuned, The Poke Around will be sitting down with label co-founder Manny Lemus, as well as bringing you coverage of both nights.
