It’s a short PopCulteer this week. Yours truly is still far under the weather, but if I write any more about being sick here in PopCult it’ll be a HIPPA violation, so let’s just get on with some random notes.
This has been a long-term and fruitful musical union that has produced some of the most thoughtful and entertiaining high concept music in the area, and it’s a shame to see them go, but it’s good that they’re splitting on their own terms.
Your last chance to hear the BrotherSisters before they disband to go their separate musical ways is Friday night at Unity, 804 Myrtle Rd, Charleston. $5 suggested donation. Feel free to bring snacks, wine or non-alcoholic beverages. This is one I’m going to try to attend, if I can quit coughing for more than five minutes.
As one band ends, another finds itself with a new beginning. At 9:30 PM at The Boulevard Tavern the recently reunited band, In The Company of Wolves, finds themselves holding a CD release party for their new album. In support are two other local powerhouses, Scarlet Revolt and Luna Park. Check out the graphic below. Cover is a mere five bucks.
Record Store Day, the national movement to get people into records shops by offering hundreds of exclusive releases on one day each year, is Saturday, and three local stores are participating.
Bill Lynch covers the story for the Gazette-Mail so that your PopCulteer can just slack off and post a link. This is always fun, and I’m hoping to be physically able to get out and find some crunchy vinyl goodness. Last year I was in Chicago for Record store Day, and had to miss all the local fun down here.
Saturday is also Earth Day, and Fletcher’s Grove is headlining a show at the Bakery…
That’s a wrap
It’s a short PopCulteer this week, but we did offer up a PopCult Comix Bookshelf earlier today, and a PopCult Toybox is on the way later this afternoon, so it’s not like I’m really slacking off much while I’m hopefully in the last days of this infernal crud. Keep checking PopCult for fresh content every day.
