Quick Weekend Notes

Several RFC regulars have cool stuff going on this weekend that you can rush out and enjoy!

Radio Free Charleston’s Resident Diva, Melanie Larch, along with No Pants Player Kevin Pauley, are both featured in the Kanawha Player’s production of Arthur Miller’s “The Crucible.”  This story of the Salem witch trials was a thinly-disguised analog to the “Red Scare” of the McCarthy era HUAC hearings, but today, you can see a whole new layer of relevance to paranoia of the current administration. 

“The Crucible” starts at the Civic Center Little Theater tonight at 8 PM. Tickets are sixteen dollars, with student discounts available.  

In Huntington tonight, RFC guests Holden Caulfield hold court at Club Echo with three other area bands. The cover is five bucks, and the show starts at 10 PM.

Tomorrow night, RFC’s adopted nephews The Concept invade the Boom Boom Room (formerly The Brickhouse) in St. Albans along with The Excitement and Pittsburgh band The Composure.  The all-ages show begins at 5:30, and I will be there.  Cover is eight meager dollars. 

Later Saturday, The Compusure and The Concept take the stage at the Blue Parrot with Meuwl and B. Rude.  That show kicks off at 10 PM, and the cover is five bucks, I think.

    Few know that the correct pronunciation is “kruk-uh-bull”.

    Way few.

    KP’s production of “The Crucible” is a must-see evening of theater. Just not for the little ones or infants in arms.

  3. Elvis Capone

    Are infants out-of-arms okay?

    How about little arms that aren’t attached to people?

    Just trying to cover all bases here.
