Best annual outdoor party in Richmond

The Bopcats (1995)
Music lovers, barbeque addicts, people watchers and party animals should remember to set aside next Saturday afternoon, Oct. 7, for High on the Hog 30. What has grown into an institution started in 1977. It all happens every year on Libby Hill, east of Richmond’s Downtown.

The four bands booked for this year’s mammoth party represent a worthy best-of-the-early-’80s show, in that they all played the event in that era. And, all were quite popular for good reasons. They are: The Bopcats, The Memphis Rockabilly Band, the Good Humor Band and the Billy Price Band.
