Brewer’s Sessions Video Series Brings Local Musical Talent to the Coffee Shop

A Manchester coffee shop has its own version of NPR’s Tiny Desk series.

I’m disappointed in myself for just finding out about this great little series that Brewer’s Cafe (1125 Bainbridge St) is putting on with the help of local NPR affiliate WCVE. Brewer’s Sessions shines the spotlight on local musical talent.

Style Weekly has an excellent article on the creation of the series and the force behind this and so many other great events happening in Manchester.

Musicians set up behind the counter at Brewer’s Cafe, sip on coffee or tea and perform while the cameras roll. With the shop’s deep sinks, chalkboard menu, espresso machines and cash register serving as the backdrop for these little concerts, it’s funky yet warm. He hopes it will fill a niche in Richmond’s music scene.

“When I’m thinking about the life that I want, most people talk about the school their kids go to, the career they have, and completely forget about entertainment and the social scene,” Brewer says. “I was kind of over not being accepted in certain circles, in certain restaurants, at certain clubs, so I just created my own vibe.”

Here’s the latest and you can check out the rest at Brewer’s Sessions which even has a handy subscribe link.

New Stoplight on Forest Hill Avenue and Melbourne to be Turned on Next Week

For the first week it will flash yellow before becoming a normal traffic signal.

Published

on

From DPW:

A section of the Forest Hill Corridor is safer for motorists, pedestrians and bicyclists now that a new traffic signal has been installed as part of the Forest Hill Avenue Improvement Project.
The signal is at the intersection of Forest Hill Avenue and Melbourne Drive. It will be energized on Monday, December 13 and temporarily placed in flash mode. Those approaching from Melbourne Drive will see a red indicator, while those approaching the intersection from Forest Hill Avenue will see an amber light.
The temporary flashing gives motorists an opportunity to adjust to the new signal ahead of it being set to function as a fully signalized intersection on Monday, December 20.
