River City Roundup
The best things to see, do and experience this week


Fully Vexed
Vexine, the bluesy, rollicking rockers, are back in Richmond after a New Orleans sabbatical, and they’ll be holding forth at The Camel from 2 to 5 p.m. on Saturday, June 24. The band is fronted by Sarah Gleason, who can belt, roar and croon original songs that hark back to beery halls with sawdust floors and neon lights reflected on damp sidewalks. She’s supported by Paul Pearce on lead guitar and vocals, Michael Skiffington on bass, and the powerful drums of Jorge Santamaria. They are joined by Ionna, with Soraya Silene, and original punchy synth-pop sounds. Vexine is returning to the studio later this year for a 2024 release. If you don’t get up and move to these tunes, you’re made of Styrofoam.
