Join us as we celebrate a full year of New Moon Gatherings under the sign of Aries in the absolutely GORGEOUS historic Byrd Theatre, with psychedelic bass wizard Hullabalo0 (has opened for Tipper multiple times, and graced our September New Moon last year), supported by a showcase of some of the hardest working members of the Richmond music scene: Party Liberation Front member and Richmond community cornerstone Reinhold, Analog Hip Hop Beatsmith Graymatter, Psychedelic Reggae-Rock band Space Koi, and Yoga-friendly multi-genre producer Yogamuffin performing with a guided meditation lead by our New Moon Yogi Zoe.
The event will also feature guest speaker John K. Snyder, a self-made comic book artist who’s worked on DC Comics’ Suicide Squad, Green Lantern, Mid-Nite, and more! He will be discussing his path and what has inspired, pushed, and motivated him along the way.
Live visuals will be played on the big screen movie-style and provided by ?arl, featuring remixes of local artists’ work, much of which you’ve probably seen grow, develop, and be created at our New Moon Gatherings over the course of the past year. This VJ has done visuals for the likes of Yheti, Somatoast, and the lobby visuals during our Equinox Gathering, so you know you’re in store for something special!
A portion of proceeds will be donated to ART180, with the intention of keeping the arts available to Richmond City Public school students, and the Kind Productions team will be donating a ton of art supplies for this same purpose.

“This past year has bee a wild ride to say the least, what started as an afternoon vision with a clear directive has turned into a whole new life path for me and my closest friends. There’s been ups and downs, laughter and tears, and lesson after lesson, and it’s all been so incredibly worth it! I’m beyond stoked to announce our 1 year anniversary of our New Moon Gatherings at a place I’ve spent so many wonderful evenings at growing up in Richmond. My biggest appreciations go to those who’ve supported us this whole way, you are the ones who make it possible for us to throw these events, and have this fun, and give back to the city that we party, play, create, and work in.”

The New Moon is a time of rebirth, where we are given a chance to start fresh and cultivate new energy. This New Moon in the initiating, courageous, sign of the Ram presents an awesome time to express yourself fully and without fear of judgement, an awesome time to start new projects, and to act on our (constructive) inner impulses without worry for what others might think of us or wish we were doing. This is a great time to revitalize your spirit with experiences that break routines, and involve doing something fresh. We hope to cultivate all of these sentiments by gathering in a new place filled with such beauty as the Byrd theatre, and revitalize that place with something that’s never been done there before.
