We had severe weather yesterday with funnel clouds and straight winds and falling billboards and stuff, and your PopCulteer got off rather easy.  I just lost my power.  However, I didn’t get a chance to write today’s PopCult post, which sucks because it was going to be a really good one. I am typing this from a nearby hotel that still has electricity and wi-fi. Instead of what I’d planned, how about we go to our least-read weekly feature?  There’s plenty of STUFF TO DO in Charleston and all over the Mountain State as we take detours around fallen trees, billboards and parts of buildings.

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. As in the last few of weeks, they ain’t saying who’s playing.

The World Famous Empty Glass Cafe has some great stuff this week  to tell you about. Wednesday at 9 PM, RFC regular James Townsend brings his music to the Glass.  Thursday at 5:30 PM the Helping Hour with Swingstein & Robin makes the world a better place with music.   Friday, Tim Courts plays during happy hour.  Friday night at 9:30 PM, McKenna Hope and Friends return 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, falling porno-shop billboards, sunspots, unindicted co-conspirators 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…
