What to do the rest of the weekend!

After you’ve had your fun at the opening of Karen Silvestro’s new show PAPERDOLL: The Search for the Perfect Man hosted by Art Pimp at Robert Lange Studios tonight from 5:30 – 8:30, here’s what to do with the rest of your weekend.

Will Hoge at the Windjammer–the best musician you probably haven’t seen.

Will Hoge: ah-maz-ing

O.A.R. with Citizen Cope at Family Circle Stadium–I’d go just for Citizen Cope.

Citizen Cope, the hottest dude with dreads sings on Daniel Island tomorrow

Hedgwig and the Angry Inch at the American Theatre–glam rock opera.  ’nuff said.


Woodworking and Music tonight…what more could you want?

Aster Hall will debut woodwork by Charlie Moore and Raven Toney with photography by Diana Lauderdale of Factory Cactus tonight with a reception from 5:30-8:30.  The group has an interesting theme of incorporating the past and present…

Toney creates functional furniture exclusively from salvaged wood.  Moore utilizes both antiques tools of yesteryear and modern machinery of today in the creation of sleek contemporary pieces.  Lauderdale has been traversing our great country since the 70’s and highlights Americana with an interest in recycled and salvaged materials.

Knowing the folks over at Aster Hall, this will be a great time.  Visit them tonight at 481 King Street.

After visiting Aster Hall, head over to Eye Level Art where Two Man Gentleman Band with The Amazing Mittens will be taking the stage.  103 Spring Street, 8-11pm.  Billed as “raucous & vaudeville” it sounds like a good time to us!

Community Forums on the Future of the CSO

The College of Charleston, Coastal Community Foundation and the Charleston Regional Alliance for the Arts are hosting several public forums on the future of Symphonic Music in Charleston.  As many of you may know, the Charleston Symphony Orchestra, on the verge of beginning its 75th Season, is in jeopardy.  The CSO suspended the rest of their 2010 season in order to regroup and come back stronger.  But it looks like that’s been more difficult than anticipated.

The first forum will take place tomorrow morning, June 16, at CofC’s Stern Center, 9 am to 12 noon.  There will also be forums held in the Seabrook/Kiawah area on June  21st, Daniel Island/Mt Pleasant area on June 22nd, and an evening session on June 22nd, downtown-ish, location to be determined.  Register here for the forums.

Photograph by Reese Moore

This Friday, April 9th, from 8-11 pm, the Jazz Artists of Charleston will put on their annual Spring fundraiser at the Charleston Center for Photography.

The JAC’s swanky party will be a mere $20 trade-off for great music, hors d’oeuvres, open wine bar, silent auction and art work.

Four photographers, Alice Keeney, Ben Williams, Priscilla Thomas and Reese Moore, who have been chronicling the Charleston Jazz scene from behind the scenes, and artists Nathan Durfee, Lisa Shimko, Nick Jenkins and Michael Moran will present work that let’s you “listen with your eyes.”

Check out Jack McCray’s article in last Thursday’s Charleston SCENE.  Call (843) 641.0011 or visit Etix for tickets.
