Here at PopCult Central we are still rebuilding after the devestating battery back-up explosion from a couple of weeks ago. However, we’re expecting things to be back to normal next week as The PopCult Toybox returns with an update on some cool stuff we’ve told you about recently, in addition to that, the PopCult Bookshelf will return with a look at some new magazines that you can find on the stands.
Speaking of magazines, you can find an article I wrote about American Horror Story trading cards as the cover feature of Non Sport Update, on stands now.
There’s a good chance that Radio Free Charleston will return on June 1 too, a bit ahead of schedule, but at full strength with a strong line-up.
Of course Monday Morning Art will return, as will The PopCulteer. Sunday Evening Video will take the week of because nobody reads blogs on the Sunday before a day off. The managment thanks youse for your patience.
Last Minute Qiet
Qiet has a Kickstarter page to raise funds for their next album. It’s getting down to the wire, and we didn’t get a chance to plug it earlier due to our well-documented computer troubles.
If they make their goal in the next few hours (edit that, they just made their goal, but you can still help out and get some nifty goodies), they will get the chance to record their new CD with Eddie Ashworth, a producer who’s worked with Sublime and Pennywise. Qiet will popping up in RFC 186, and you can get some really cool new music from this unique band.
