Rolling Stone magazine readers have spoken, or voted: They’ve named NorVa in Norfolk, Virginia, as the number one “Venue That Rocks” the hardest, in a poll ranking top live music spots in the U.S. For the local rock record, the Middle East in Cambridge’s Central Square finished ninth.

Norfolk has a pretty sizable music and arts representation. The 31st annual Norfolk Jazz Festival runs July 19-10, followed by the 13th annual AT&T Latino Music Festival Aug. 24, and on Sept. 7, Norfolk’s Indie Music and Arts Festival. Norfolk is also home to Attucks Theatre, built in1919, the oldest legitimate theater in the nation completely financed, designed, built and run by African Americans, and where the likes of Nat King Cole and Duke Ellington have played. It also has The Jewish Mother, a music mainstay on Granby Street that also has amazing food, particularly the colossal carrot cake I tried a couple years ago and couldn’t come close to finishing.

Norfolk has a lot going on, check it out at www.visitnorfolktoday.com
