NancyDrew commented on FunStuff: Charlottesville events May 3 and beyond
Thanks Lisa, This looks like a fabulous line-up . I really appreciate the more in-depth descriptions of these events than just the listing of time and place. Last week your column steered me to Elijah conducted by Michael Slon and it was stupendous - 4 standing ovations .

$5000 is a small price for a city to pay for a festival, if twenty years down the road that festival has ballooned into a national event. I actually think in this case council showed a rare amount of foresight regarding its own economic vitality, which this festival could very well spur.

I think the Tom Tom is a great idea. I'm looking forward to it and already have a couple friends who might be coming in from out of town to see some of the shows. I think it's great that the visitor's bureau or whoever it was provided some support to help get it started. I think they did a pretty...

I am not involved in TomTom at all, but i am guessing that their goal is to have TomTom evolve into something similar to SXSW in Austin. So much like SXSW it will tap mostly local talent, but will hopefully grow and evolve into a much larger event. I can tell you that SXSW has been an absolutely...

What cville really needs is a Festival of no(h) Festivals.This would be refreshing,new and interesting- a major non-event. Please send me $5K or less to fund.Thank you!
saywha? commented on Mr. Tom Tom: Beyer sees bands and innovation together
I'm really having a hard time seeing the point. The founder himself even says "Tom Tom's themes are about music, art, and innovation– those are all conversations that take place in Charlottesville to begin with," So what's this festival all about then? There are a few interesting band in the...
