Everyone knows the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art‘s annual membership parties are reason enough to join, let alone the amazing programming all year long. Come join me tonight 7 – 10 for the Harvest Moon Bash. The edibles & drinkables will be local, sustainable fare–which Art Mag is all about. Get your very own Moon photo booth shot with your friends or your better half–make sure you wear festive attire so you’ll be in one of the pictures we feature next year! Groove to the Blues by musician and Citizen Architect composer Jake Fussell & check out Running the Numbers, work by Chris Jordan, both part of the Bluesphere project.
The best part is, you can join right at the door so you don’t miss out on all this massive coolness–annual memberships start at just $15!
Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art, 161 Calhoun Street, in the Cato Center for the Arts at CofC. 7 – 10 pm.
Crowfield, one of my favorite local bands, is playing at the Music Farm tonight, and I can’t think of a better way to post-Moon Bash. It’s been a big year for Tyler, Joe, Parker, Micah and Ethan–major label Universal Records signed the boys, and they have had some big shows–like sharing the stage with Hootie and the Blow Fish and Edwin McCain, two of the biggest acts to come out of SC in the last two decades.
Charlie Mars will be opening; this is one show I WILL NOT miss the opener–you’ve heard his song Listen to the Darkside on Showtime’s popular Weeds, and more of his new cd all over the Bridge 105.5. He’s really great.
Music Farm, 32 Ann Street, downtown Charleston. Doors at 8, show starts at 9. Tickets $15 at the door.
And on Saturday, there will be a closing reception and ARTIST GARAGE SALE for UNEARTHED, a group show featuring Hirona Matsuda, Nina Garner, Kristy Bishop and Sarah Frierson’s work, which opened October 8. The opening reception was so much fun, they are doing it again, and this time inviting more local artists like John Pundt–last seen at Pecha Kucha 8–Scott Debus, Lisa Abernathy and more to participate in their Art Garage Sale. So bring your check book or cash (not accepting cards) and scoop up some fabulous finds! Art Garage Sale starts at 3 pm, and the reception with refreshments and live music starts at 7 pm.
Rick Rhodes Photography, 1842 Beldgrade Ave, in West Ashley. 3 – 9 pm
