We had another wonderful ArtWalk last night, as Charleston’s finest galleries opened their doors late so that the denizens of Charleston’s art scene could check out their latest exhibits. The Dr. Sketchy’s crew was all over the place promotiing this Sunday’s Star Wars-themed session at Kanwha Players Theater. That’s your PopCulteer’s imaginary daughter, Kitty Killton at right, decked out in Wookie gear. That’s cameos in PopCult photo essays in two consecutive days for the kid!
Your PopCulteer took in a truncated list of galleries so that he and his lovely fiancee, Melanie Larch, could catch Thursday’s performance of The Charleston Stage Company production of Steve Martin’s play, “Picasso at the Lapin Agile.” It’s a great, intelligent comedy with wonderful performances by the cast and deft direction by Tim Mace. You have two more chances to see the play, tonight and Saturday at 7:30 PM at the WVSU Capitol Cente Theater on Summers Street. You should go see it.
We lucked into something very cool just outside of Ellen’s Ice Cream on Capitol Street. A stripped-down line-up of Qiet was performing. We were attracted by the musical saw, but were hooked by the bass brass (I want to call it a tuba, but I know that’s wrong). Luckily I have a video setting on the camera.
You can catch Qiet with The Demon Beat and Tofujitsu June 15 at The Boulevard Tavern. We’ll tell you more about that in the coming weeks. Now, it’s picture time!

That’s it for this week’s PopCulteer, but we will return with the IWA East Coast photo essay sometime this weekend. Plus we have a couple of episodes of RFC in the pipeline, so stay tuned.
