High on the Hog 30
High of the Hog 30 will unfold on October 7 at its usual location, Richmond's Libby Hill Park. That’s right folks, it all started way back in 1977.
This event wrote the book on outdoor Rock ‘n’ Roll shows in Richmond. Now the guys who started it watch their children and grandchildren do much of the work.
This year the annual throwdown’s impresario, Chuck Wrenn, has booked a lineup that should be quite a draw, all four acts have a rich history of previous appearances: The Bopcats will open, to be followed by the Memphis Rockabilly Band. Then the Good Humor Band will take to the stage when the party should be at its height. The Billy Price Band will close the show.

As always, admission is free; the party runs from noon to sunset. The food and drink sell this way: barbecue plates -- $7; golden beverages -- $3; soft drinks -- $1. Proceeds will go to the Church Hill Association and The Church Hill Crime Watch.
