July 26, 2013

It’s a short column this week. We’re going to take a quick look at some great weekend events. Most notable this week is Tribute To The Troops III, to be held all day Saturday at the Roadside Park in St. Albans, right across from the St. Albans Mall.

This show features a great line up of talent and it’s for the benefit of The Wounded Warrior Project, a most worthy cause.  Here’s the flier for the show, followed by the special episodes of Radio Free Charleston that we produced for last year’s Tribute To The Troops. RFC will not be on hand for this year’s show, since your PopCulter (and RFC host and cameraman) is unable to shoot any outdoor shows at the moment. However, we do endorse this very worthwhile show and thank Wood Boys Music for all their great efforts.

Other Weekend Shows


The mysterious and diverse musical movement known as “Snakebox” turns up at The Boulevard Tavern, with Ryan Wright opening. The show starts at 10 PM for what one assumes is a five-dollar cover (you guys really need to start listing this stuff on your events pages).

The Black Cross Brotherhood makes their debut at 10 PM at The Blue Parrot, with Freaktent Jr. and the stars of the next episode of Radio Free Charleston, HarraH, on the bill providing ample support. Five bucks gets you in the door. Read the BCB’s ultra-humble Gazz interview here.


At The Blue Parrot, The Renfields, Vent and Brain Trauma will rip up the stage and violate each and every piece at 10 PM.  The cover charge for this musical gorefest is a mere five bucks.

Beggar’s Clan will be at Sam’s Uptown Cafe at 10 PM, again, for what we have to guess is a five-dollar cover charge.

That’s it for this week’s PopCulteer. Our regular features may be spotty for the next couple of weeks, but that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t sit in front of your computer 24  hours a day hitting ‘refresh.’
