Turn off the Misfits, Arcade Fire or whatnot and go to Empire's Honky Tonk night every other Tuesday. Real music, real people, great DJ!

Richmond’s first tattoo. There are so many beer-soaked memories and blown-out vocal chords, smashed amps, sweaty screaming audience choirs, half-lonely Tuesday nights spent with a bartender and a door guy, breakups, make-outs, bathroom stall wisdom, slippery-hot crowded parties and just the smug musk of youthiness here I don’t even know where to start.
