PopCult Rudy Panucci on Pop Culture

Walkin’ The Art Walk For September

The PopCulteer
September 17, 2010

Last night was the third Thursday of the month, and that means it’s time for the monthly PopCult ArtWalk Photo Essay.

It was a good time, with cool exhibits opening all over town, and Amy Williams Q & A (A Visual and Performance Art Exhibit) taking place at The Purple Moon. After ArtWalk, Melanie and I had a great dinner at The Bluegrass Kitchen, then zipped around the corner where we shot episode 111 of Radio Free Charleston, which you can see early next week.

With such a busy day, you might think that this edition of The PopCulteer might not feature much besides ArtWalk photos.

You’d be right. Check out the people and art from last night, after the jump.

This is not a photo of Amy cheating by resorting to Wikipedia to get an answer

That’s about it for this week’s PopCulteer.  I’m in a bit of a sleep-deprived haze, but before we go…

Don’t forget to watch RFC 110

Check out the No Pants Players benefit show for ARC, Saturday night at the La Belle Theater in South Charleston at 8 PM…

Tofujitsu (as seen above) will be at Taylor Books Friday night, 7:30 to 9:30 PM, with no cover…

Look for RFC 111, recorded September 16 at the Empty Glass, with music from Andy Park, Stephen Beckner and Stone Soup Monday or Tuesday, and the usual PopCult features will drop on Sunday and Monday. I gotta get some sleep.
