FestivAll Photo Essay: People

It's CASI*Okay, we’re going to do this in two parts.  Today I’m posting photos of some of the folks I ran into during FestivAll last week.  Tomorrow I’ll post some of the art. 

To the right, you see Casi Null performing with Punk Jazz.  You’ll see more pictures of Punk Jazz below, and you’ll see them on a future episode of RFC or two.  But if you want to see them live, you only have one more chance on July 17 at The Empty Glass.  I’ll tell you more about that as the day approaches.

After the jump there are tons of pictures of folks we saw last week, enjoy! You may even be one of them.

  1. Mountain Woman Phd.

    I love it when you do these photo essays.  It’s great seeing our local celebrities like Larry Groce and Ron Sowell out enjoything themselves.   At first I thought I might have been at the same performance of Duo Divertido that you photographed, but then I realized they weren’t dressed the same.

    I know you’re busy with your wonderful Radio Free Charleston program, but please do more photo essays like this.
