Okay, it’s time once again for your guide to things you can do in and around Charleston and the Mountain state as we are now officially, legally and legitimately into what some people call “Summer.” In this week’s edition of STUFF TO DO, we’re going going to do our best to tell you about a wide variety of events happening all over our local region.

Live Music is back at Taylor Books. There is no cover charge, and shows start at 7:30 PM.  Friday it’s Neil Curry. Saturday Sean Richardson & David McGuire with Brooke A. Brown entertain the crowd at Charleston’s beloved Bookstore/Coffee Shop/Art Gallery.

The World Famous Empty Glass Cafe has some great stuff through the week to tell you about.  Thursday at 10 PM, it’s Buddy’s Birthday Bash with Rodney & The Cressels. Friday Tim Courts plays during happy hour.  Sunday the post-Mountain Stage Jam happens around 10 PM.  Next Monday It’s time for the Empty Glass Open Mic, with both Unmanned and Eric Robbins listed as hosts.
