The PopCulteer March 7, 2014
Next week your PopCulteer is going on a big road trip, so this week we’re going to clear the decks and drop in a whole bunch of short, random items.
The main part of the aforementioned road trip sees us heading to Atlanta where for the second year in a row, I will be one of the many guests at the Joelanta convention, a gathering for fans of the original GI Joe, who turns fifty this year. I made a pretty big deal out of it last year, when I got to attend for the first time. New for 2014 is the simultaneous Great Atlanta Toy Convention, which will be happening at the same time and location March 15 & 16 at Marriott Century City right off Interstate 85 in Atlanta.
The LaBelle is Hopping on Saturday Night
The first annual “D Street Series” presented by the The South Charleston Museum Foundation takes place Saturday from 6:30 PM to 10 at The Labelle Theatre in South Charleston. Your host, Louis Argento, will be introduce music by The Wild Rumpus and The Fabulous Brothers Steele! (with guest violin-shredder Alasha Al-Qudwah). There will also be a photo exhibit by Andrew Rude and Wesley Eary. Tickets are only $5. Children get in free.
Pizza and The Blues
Frequent RFC guests, Diablo Blues Band, makes their first appearance at Roni’s Pizza Bar in Elkview at 7 PM Saturday. There is no cover and the food is top-notch.
That’s it for this week’s PopCulteer. Check back over the weekend and all next week for all our regular features, plus a bunch of reports from the road.
