999784_244210792401915_80752846_nWe’re smack in the middle of the week, and there’s tons of stuff to do, including Radio Free Charleston recording at Third Eye Cabaret Thursday night. Expect a supplemental list on Friday, but for now here’s what we have…


Tonight Time and Distance (RFC 184) celebrate their leader’s birthday tonight as every gathers to blow out candles on Greg McGowan’s cake at The Empty Glass, starting at 10 PM. Five bucks gets you into the party where you can hear Time and Distance as they kick off a new mini-tour. Also on the bill tonight are frequent RFC guests The McGees and future guests, The Red Lights.

The Boulevard Tavern presents The Ford Theater Reunion with The
Trojan Whores and Rick Perdue, tonight starting at 9:30 PM. I’m guessing there’s a five-dollar cover, but don’t hold me to that.

There’s comedy tonight in both Charleston and Huntington. The Blue Parrot presents Tyler Stewart and Josh McDonald, followed by an open mic with up-and-coming local comics. Five dollars gets you in to hear the funny at 9 PM. In Huntington, Black Sheep Burritos hosts their bi-weekly comedy open mic starting at 9 PM. No cover charge is specified.


It’s a special night at Third Eye Cabaret, as the Radio Free Charleston crew will be on hand to record highlights of the evening for next week’s show. Things will get started with house band The BrotherSisters, an electric folk trio featuring the triple harmonies of Douglas Imbrogno, Albert Perrone and Marylin McKeown.Then Jamie Skeen plays some amazing electric bass compositions to multi-tracked original tracks. Louis Argento, a heavyweight local singer & songwriter will be on hand, and an expanded line of up Snakebox featuring Kevin Krump, Beth Summers, Alasha Al-Qudwah, Adrian DeQuiros, Frank Spiker and David Stephenson will perform. You can see them on this week’s RFC MINI SHOW

That’s the forty-eighth edition of Third Eye Cabaret, Thursday night, starting at 8 PM at the Cellar, 8 Capitol Street.
