Your PopCulteer is buried under deadlines and hard at work on next week’s Radio Free Charleston, so our Friday column will be a little shorter than usual this week. We’re going to start with some random links to cool things, and then wrap up with some neat weekend events and photos.
A couple of weeks ago, “That Conversation,” a new Podcast by Patrick Felton, made its debut and it’s well worth checking out. This podcast will focus on arts and creativity in the Kanawha Valley, and the first installment is a long, comprehensive, interview with playwright and director, Dan Kehde, of the Contemporary Youth Arts Company. The second installment should be coming soon, and after that, RFC fans may hear a familiar voice pop up.
Congrats to Chris Chaber and The Empty Glass crew on their coming expansion into the New China building. The Glass is a legendary venue, but at times it does get to be a little like the Black Hole of Calcutta in there when a popular band is playing. Now, with accomodations for a larger crowd, maybe we can get Unknown Hinson to return to Charleston.
