Rives concert to go on as scheduled
Julius Caesar canceled Friday at Black Box Theatre

Friday, March 7, 2014

Despite the snow, tonight's Live at the Rives concert featuring the Jon Stickley Trio will take place as scheduled. The doors will open at 8 p.m., and the band will take the stage at 9 p.m.

The temperature is not forecast to drop below freezing until after the concert will be completed.

JS3 features the world-class musicianship of guitarist Jon Stickley, fiddle player Lyndsay Pruett and drummer Patrick Armatage. The Asheville, N.C.-based band mixes bluegrass, jazz and rock into a genre-bending sound. A recent review in Bold Life Magazine said the band's “arrangements are superb and fresh, and give someone like Bela Fleck a real run for his money.”

Tickets to the show will be sold for $10 each at the doors of the Rives tonight. Season passes will also be accepted.


After a succesful opening night of Julius Caesar Thursday at TheatreWorks in uptown Martinsville, the snowstorm over the evening Thursday into today has forced the cancellation of tonight’s show.

Despite the imminent threat of weather Thursday night, about 45 people attended the opening of Julius Caesar, which features a new twist on the old classic, with actors wearing modern clothes while speaking in old English.

Weather permitting, the show will go on as planned at 7 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday, then again at 7 p.m. on March 13, 14 and 15.
