I recently caught up with Richmond rapper and musician RadioBlitz before the AGM show, Flag on the Moon. I wanted to build with the man, understand the "Association of Great Minds" movement and what they were trying to bring to the table with this show. It's actually pretty simple; he has a birthday coming up and wanted to do a show at the Broadberry. Instead of just being receptive to the gifts that may come his way, he wanted to give in the form of an experience, in one of Richmond's newest venues. Having yet to have a sold-out hip-hop show there, Radio and the AGM crew decided this would be the perfect opportunity to seize. They brainstormed and came up with a concept and called upon blogger, Quinelle Holder of HipHopSince1987 to be their host. The name itself is a realization of certain goals they want to achieve in the Richmond scene and with their music. This will also be one of the first times they are hitting the stage as AGM. Radio, Nickelus F and Michael Millions have definitely all done shows together in the past but this time the intent wasn't just to focus on themselves and they wanted to give others in the scene a chance to shine as well. With that in mind, they had a contest via Radio's site to eventually choose the opening acts. This is when the impact of the show really resonated with the creators. "It's an honor and completely humbling to see artists pushing so hard to be able to open up at #FlagOnTheMoon Salute to everyone pushing!" is what Radio tweeted the other day. The outpouring of support and the very real potential of selling the venue out has made all the spent energy worthwhile.
