Almost anything can be improved with music, as evidenced by tuba-accompanied balcony serenades, operatic State of the Union addresses, and yodeled bank statements. Tune your ears to the sweet sounds on stage with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get four general-admission tickets to see Carbon Leaf (a $20 value) at Friday Cheers on Brown's Island, presented by Venture Richmond on Friday, May 6 at 6 p.m. Kids ages 12 and younger get free admission.

During 20 years of recording and touring, Richmond-based band Carbon Leaf has sculpted an audio portfolio of guitar-shredding and drum-thumping songs. Astute earlobes may recognize familiar hits such as "The Boxer," which earned the band a 2002 International Songwriting Competition Award. The group also lent its song-spinning abilities to a mischievous monkey in Universal's soundtrack to the 2010 film Curious George 2. Before Carbon Leaf floats onto the stage, ears can sip on the palate-prepping blends of opening band Lights East.

In its 27th season, Venture Richmond's signature Friday Cheers concert series entertains around 20,000 people each year on Brown's Island in downtown Richmond. Lush green trees encase waves of people that cascade from the stage, which rests near Richmond's historic riverfront. The standing-room audience area lets listeners feel close to performers and guarantees that crumpled-up legs won't fall asleep and miss their favorite song.

Riverfront Canal Cruises

Riverfront Canal Cruises traces Richmond's roots back to George Washington, who first lobbied the Virginia General Assembly to create the city's canal system as a means of linking the coast to trade opportunities in the west. In 40-minute tours, covered boats glide down the James River and Kanawha Canal, granting passengers an up-close view of the waterways without having to mount a webcam on a duck. Throughout the trip, guides share old stories about the canal and the Canal Walk, broadening guests' knowledge of the area's rich heritage.
