Lotsa coolness this week, so let’s dive in.
First, there’s the coolness from last week that I never got around to posting. In stores now is the reissued complete works of The Traveling Wilburys! Courtesy of Rhino Records, you can now get your hands on the music made by the ultimate supergroup without spending your rent money on eBay. Unavailable for ten years, the two Wilburys albums, “Volume 1,” and “Volume 3” have been collected in a variety of deluxe formats with annotated notes and bonus cuts and video. In case you forgot, the Wiburys were George Harrison, Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison, Tom Petty, and Jeff Lynne. This was the sound of them just having fun, and some people have come to the conclusion that this is perfect music. Perfect for what, they won’t say, but they stand by the claim.
Also cool this week is The No Pants Players, fresh from eating a watermelon on the latest Radio Free Charleston, the mountain state’s only comedy troupe returns to their home base a the Labelle Theater in South Charleston for shows on Friday and Saturday night. Tickets are six bucks.
Opening for the NPP on Friday will be current RFC musical guest, the acoustic duo Aurora. During intermission you can hear future RFC guest Joe Slack. Saturday night the music will be provided by another future RFC guest, In Formation. The shows start at 7 PM each night.
