Despite some technical glitches, we are bringing you a half hour of coverage of Charleston’s just-concluded FestivALL 2014 in RFC 199. Radio Free Charleston looks at FestivALL with music from Todd Burge, The Bark O Loungers, QiET and The Company Stores, plus dance from Susan Angela Hughart and The Trillium Performance Arts Collective. Sprinkled throughout are many sights and sounds of FestivALL.
The show also includes a brief look back at Last Week’s IWA East Coast wrestling show, held at Skateland in Campbell’s Creek. That’s also where we got the limited-edition Mad Man Pondo Birthday Shirt, which gives this show its title.
Following the FestivALL format we’ve used in previous years, this show is a stream-of-conciousness collection of music and art. Along the way you’ll see The River Queen Sternwheeler, Jude Binder, The stilt-walkers, Ian Bode’s painting, the horse-drawn carriage, Apartment Earth’s “Pop Goes The Weasel” show, the FestivALl Catfish and more.
Someday we will bring you the boring and detailed technical story about why this episode of the show looks so blocky in places. For now, we sorta need to sleep. The PopCult Toybox may be delayed this week.
