Weekend Radar: Music at VMFA, Gallery 55 at UU, Cosplay World, Dachtoberfest

The weather has thrown a wrench into many plans but we found a few things to do that will hopefully work out.




Music at the VMFA Galleries
September 30th

Look at art while musical artists play for you. It’s a double dose of culture and you won’t get rained on.
