We have a few suggestions for STUFF TO DO in Charleston, and points all over WV for the next few days,and this week we’ll probably have some bonus suggestions on Friday because a lot of folks haven’t bothered to post graphics or create event pages for their shows this early in the week.

Now might be a good time to mention that, if you create a simple graphic that includes the details of your event–what’s happening, where it is, age restrictions and admission fee–then I’m far more likely to include it in a post like this in PopCult. It’s free advertising. Just meet me halfway and put your information where I might find it on social media. Even better, email it directly to me at rudypan@protonmail.com.

Our lead item this week is The International Film Festival in Huntington, part of The Marshall Artists Series. From Thursday through Saturday you can see six critically-acclaimed films from around the world at the historic Keith-Albee Theater. And check this out, they have a website AND a graphic!

If you’re into Live Theater, don’t forget that you can still see Our Town at The Alban and Music Man at The Clay Center this weekend.


Live Music is back at Taylor Books. There is no cover charge, and shows start at 7:30 PM. Friday it’s Brandon Costello. Saturday sees Johnathan Sartin at Charleston’s beloved Bookstore/coffeehouse/art gallery institution.

Thursday at 8 PM Florida’s Dial Drive, Charleston’s Hurl Brickbat and other bands will be at The Empty Glass. They didn’t do a graphic or mention a cover charge, but they did create an event page.

This weekend Art Emporium celebrates thirty years in Charleston. Saturday, November 5th from 5 PM to 7 PM. they’ll have snacks, drinks and live music from Grant Jacobs. This is a free event to the public. So stop by and enjoy some music and check out their newly renovated space filled with art and gifts.  More details can be found HERE.

Please remember that the pandemic is not over yet. Many people who have very good reasons are still wearing masks, and many of us, understandably, are still nervous about being in crowds, masked or not. Be kind and understanding  while you’re out.

If you’re up for going out, here are a few more suggestions for the rest of this week, roughly in order.
