This was the week where I wasn’t paying enough attention. This RFC Flashback goes to the first week of December, 2013, for the second consecutive “Number Seven” of The RFC MINI SHOW. In my haste, I used the same number for this show that had for the previous episode, and the worst thing about it was that I didn’t notice until four months later. Mea Culpa.
Fortunately, the show kicks all kinds of butt. This week’s RFC MINI SHOW was a special Sepia solo showcase for Andrew Hellblinki. The Hellblinki Sextet first appeared on Radio Free Charleston way back on episode 49, back in 2008. They were the first out-of-town band we featured on the show.
Andrew was undertaking a solo tour and a Kickstarter campaign at the time and we caught up with him at The Empty Glass. The fact that this is an RFC MINI SHOW, and it features a band that’s not from Charleston is significant, but I can’t really tell you why at this time.
