RVA HOT SAUCE is a live event series, created by the Cheats Movement Blog, that debuted in October 2011. The showcase features a variety of contemporary art styles including: hip-hop, spoken word, visual art, comedy, and improv theater. In addition to the performances, RVA HOT SAUCE includes a community service component by introducing the audience to service-oriented non-profits working in underserved areas throughout the Richmond region.

RVA HOT SAUCE 2018 at the VMFA will be a journey through contemporary sound. The night will feature four of Richmond’s most popular DJs: Hip Hop Henry, DJ Mentos, Dolomic, and NameBrand, along with a live performance by Z-Bey the Poet of Community 50/50, and two hip-hop cyphers, one of which is being hosted by RVA’s Lyricist Lounge.
