Here at Stately Radio Free Charleston Manor your PopCulteer is preparing to enter into the perilous waters of this year’s tax preparation.  Since I am a little preoccupied with that, how about we go to a truncated version of our least-read weekly feature?  There’s plenty of STUFF TO DO in Charleston and all over the Mountain State as we pull out the calculators and slide rules.

As I have been copying and pasting of late, this a good time to remind you that THIS IS NOT A COMPLETE LIST OF EVENTS.  It’s just a starting point, so don’t expect anything comprehensive, and if you feel strongly about me leaving anything out, feel free to mention it in the comments. This is going to be a short one because I don’t have access to my full resources. All of these shows are “weather permitting.”

Live Music is back at Taylor Books. There is no cover charge, and shows start at 7:30 PM.  Friday it’s Leslie Brooks. Saturday Minor Swing takes the stage at the beloved bookstore/cafe/art gallery, possibly all at once.

The World Famous Empty Glass Cafe has some great stuff this week  to tell you about.  Thursday at 5:30 PM the Helping Hour with Swingstein & Robin makes the world a better place with music(details below).   Friday, Tim Courts plays during happy hour.  Next Tuesday Spurgie Hankins Band returns to the Glass. You can check below for the graphics for other cool weekend shows at The Empty Glass.

Please remember that the pandemic is still not entirely over yet. It’s a going concern with the ‘rona surging again. And now there are seasonal allergies, the flu, stray bullets from Republican primary shootouts, liver sports, people who put cucumbers in Greek Salad and other damned good reasons to be careful. Many people who have very good reasons are still wearing masks, and many of us, understandably, are still nervous about being in crowds, masked or not. Be kind and understanding  while you’re out.

Keep in mind that all shows are subject to change or be cancelled at the last minute.

If you’re up for going out, here are a few suggestions for the weekend, roughly in order…

And because I’m not sure when STUFF TO Do will land next week, here’s a look at an event for next Wednesday…
