DOSWELL, Va. -- Last Friday, I traveled the 30-odd minutes north of Richmond to Atlantic Union Bank After Hours at the Servpro Pavilion in Doswell, Virginia, next to Kings Dominion amusement park.

Not my typical weekend excursion, but I was on assignment to cover the Oliver Anthony Music concert, billed tonight simply as Oliver Anthony (the Music part inferred, I guess).

The show marked the kickoff to the bank’s summer concert series and the Farmville singer’s de facto homecoming show.

So where’d he go, you might ask? Where does anyone you’ve never heard of before go to make their mark? The place is called Viral … surely you’ve heard of and seen it before, or scrolled past it repeatedly in a near-constant, death-spiral loop.

Eventually, you stop and have a look, like it, maybe send it to a friend. Click here to read the Style Weekly concert review and scroll down to watch some of his songs.
