After an 18-month break, vegetarian restaurant Ipanema Cafe again will hold the popular monthly music series Live at Ipanema, which features performances by local and regional artists that are recorded and photographed, then shared online. This month’s artist is singer and songwriter Chris Ryan, who’s been a regular on the Richmond music scene working with artists such as DJ Williams Projekt and Beast Wellington. Ryan’s debut album, “Pray for the Rain,” was recorded with a veritable who’s who of Richmond musicians and offers up heartfelt and soul-baring songs. Chris Ryan performs at Ipanema Cafe on Sunday, Nov. 4, at 10 p.m. Free. ipanemaveg.com/live_at_ipanema.html.
