Charm City DevilsTwisted Tower Dire
Thursday, July 17th, 8PM
Formed in a time of metal where image mattered more than music, Dokken refused to follow the easy route to success by avoiding the glamour most chose to pursue.

Over the years many line up changes have slowed the bands progress, but now they are back touring in support of their new album Lightning Strikes Again.

Friday, October 8th, 8PM
New Orleans’ band Galactic brings their unique fusion of funk, jam, hip-hop, and electronic back to Toad’s Place of Richmond this October. Originally created as just a funk band as inspired by the local New Orleans scene in the mid 90’s, over the years they have adapted and created a style envied by most. Maybe you could say they’re modernizing the sound of funk by creating a new sound by fusing many genres together with incredible success, or maybe you could say they are out to create a new genre themselves.
