Post Critical Mass show at the Wingnut! July 4th at 7pm at the Wingnut.

Barons of Tang are absolutely fucking insane.  They’re musicianship combined with creativity is remarkable.  They call it gypsy deathcore but that only really sorta sums it up.  Mad gypsy deathcore with crazy timing and a truly talented lineup.  They have been blowing the audience away every single night.  You’ll absolutely love them.  The Barons of Tang are Gypsy Deathcore from Australia www.thebaronsoftang.com

Our band, Di Nigunim, plays klezmer influenced punk rock.  Usually we are a 10 piece punk orchestra, but as of now we’ve got but 5 members with us.  We’ve never played with so few, but crazy shit has gone on, including incarceration, and the tragedy of our drums (except hardware, cymbals and kick), bass amp, and bass head, and our two PA speakers being lifted in Chicago, they were stolen with the trailer that michael let us borrow actually.  So, we’re playing fun sloppy klezmo-punk.  We are guitar/vox, drums, keyboard, accordion, glockenspiel.

All ages, sober, no cover fee, but bring money to donate to the travelling bands and to buy their CDs!

We finished adding some final details to our bookshelves, and because we have gotten SO many books recently we need to reorganize our radical lending library. That means all books off the shelves, checking them to make sure they are stamped online at http://www.librarything.com/thewingnutrva, making sure they are appropriately categorized, and then figuring out how to cram them all back on the shelves.

Anyone with librarian tendencies who is interested in helping us with this awesome, nerdly process is welcome to come over this Thursday, June 9th from 5pm on. We will have dinner provided to soothe the bookish appetites.

Here are some pictures of the Wingnut in 2011. You can see our radical lending library, our literature table, and our wacky kitchen walls. If you aren’t involved in anarchist and radical projects in Richmond but you want to be, make 2011 the year you start! There is Copwatch, the Anarchist Black Cross, the RVA Radicalendar, Food Not Bombs, the RVA Zine Fest, the Monroe Campaign, Earth First, the Flying Brick Library, the Wingnut, the Really Really Free Market and more! Come by the Wingnut sometime and talk to folks about what is going on if you are interested! Here is a preview of what you can expect!

This is one of the shelves in our library. We have a section of queer books- we would love to have more- donations always accepted!

The Wingnut’s Approaching Apocalypse Zine Collection is now available online for searching purposes. So far we have over 200 zines in our database. We have many more that we need to add to the database.

We have 2 collections on our http://www.librarything.com/thewingnutrva – one is the regular library of radical books, and the other is the zine collection. You can search by title, author, and subject tag.

Our zines are not available for checking out but they are available to read and look at during Wingnut Open Hours- Wednesdays and Fridays from 4-9pm.
We have a huge selection of subject matter- including health, DIY, transportation, sex, sexism, feminism, sexual assault, herbs, queer, gender, anarchist theory, class, personal, comic, local Richmond/Virginia etc.
