We are proud to see two bands that we helped bring to the public eye years ago on Radio Free Charleston perform at the Haddad Riverfront Park as part of Live on the Levee, QiET and Tofujitsu. The opening act, Tofujitsu, has been a friend of RFC for years. One half of the duo, Sean Richardson, was on episode two of our webshow back in 2006. Karen Allen first turned up as a member of Whistlepunk back in early 2007. We’ve had Tofjuitsu on the show many times, including in this episode from 2011, where we recorded them at The Empty Glass performing their song, “Darjeeling.”
The headliners tonight, QiET, first showed up on Radio Free Charleston over three years ago, and have since gone on to become one of Charleston’s top bands. With an ever-changing line-up, QiET is simply indescribable and must be seen to be believed. They’re also great sports who have always been happy to be on RFC, even when we just chance upon them performing in the street. We’re going back to RFC 123, in 2011, for our first encounter with the masters of eclecticism, QiET.
This is going to be a big night for RFC alumni, and it’s free. The music starts at 6:30 PM at Haddad Riverfront Park. After Live On The Levee ends, you can head across the street to see the same bands at The Boulevard Tavern, with The January Dolls.
