I’m kind of amazed at this particular turn of events. After all, I literally heard an Ataris song on 102.1 The X last night! And yet it’s true–The Ataris are coming to Richmond next week, and instead of playing some huge arena, they’ll be taking the stage at intimate local venue The Camel. Which is, of course, awesome. Who ever thought that in the year 2012, you’d get a chance to see The Ataris play a club gig? Fortunately, thanks to the valiant efforts of show booker extraordinaire Alex Wilhelm (he who brought RVA the legendary Stay Sweet Fest), it’s happening, so everybody should be getting stoked starting right now! The Ataris, led by founder and chief songwriter Kristopher Roe, will be hitting Richmond as part of the Paper And Plastered tour along with Flatfoot 56 and Red City Radio, who are labelmates with the Ataris on Florida’s Paper & Plastick Records.
