Saturday Free Music For The Masses!

There’s free-musical coolness afoot on Saturday.  Summerfest in South Charleston features free outdoor performances by RFC guests The Concept and Seven Minutes Till Midnight.  The Concept takes the Stage around 6:30 PM and Seven Minutes Till Midnight goes on an hour later. 

The Concept performed on episodes seven and thirteen of RFC, while Seven Minutes Till Midnight were just on episode twenty foura couple of weeks ago. You can read about them in the Gazz this week, too.

There’s more than music at Summerfest.  There will be motorcycles, food, mighty giants striding the Earth like the Titans of yore, beauty pageants, funnelcakes and Elvis impersonators.  And get this, they’re going to hold a KNOT-TYING EXHIBITION! I can barely contain myself. 

But we’ll be there for the music.  And then we’re heading uptown for more music. 

Sean Richardson and Friends will appear at Capitol Roasters starting at 8:30 PM.  Radio Free Charleston viewers will remember Sean as part of The Sleeping Dons on episodes two and tenof RFC, and as one of the masterminds behind the Oskar*-winning short, “Unicorns Are Real” which aired on episode twenty-oneof RFC.  Among Sean’s “Friends expected to perform are Karen Allen of Whistlepunk, Jerry Fugate (camera two from The Feast Of Stephen Reunion Show), Deron Sodaro bassist extraordanaire for half the bands in town, Mark Davis on drums, plus an array of other guests on a variety of instruments.  There is no cover, and if you get there early you might be able to grab one of the comfy couches at Roasters. 

Oh, and for more information on hot bands playing in the area, be sure to check Nick and Jessica’s Gatecrasher blog, here at

*The “Oskar” awards are presented to the favorite films of Oskar Johannson, the janitor at The Radio Free Charleston Office Tower.

    I love Sean. Hope I can make it out tonight.

    Sean and “friends” were amazing! Their first set of covers (Leonard Cohen, The Shins, Sufjan Stevens) was a lot of fun, but it was Sean’s original songs in set two that really rocked the capacity-crowd. Kudos, Sean!

    Rudy – I hope you got some good material for the next RFC.

    The Concept kicked royal butt Saturday. Seven Minutes Till Midnight was also great. Too bad the rest of Summerfest sucked big time.
