It’s another week with a ton of stuff going on and lots of cool things to talk about, so we’re doing the randomosity thing this week. Study this carefully, there will be a test at the end.
Another Shirt Drive for a Local Filmmaker

There is a very cool show scheduled to happen at The Next Level Sk8Park in Nitro Friday. Weather permitting the show will start at 5 PM.

The 2014 Elk River Music and Arts Festival
A two-day music festival kicks off tomorrow evening at 6 PM in Sutton at the Historic Elk Hotel. The 2014 Elk River Music and Arts Festival is to raise money for the historic Elk Theatre in Sutton, WV. Last year’s festival helped raise the money to secure a loan for the Elk Theatre’s new projector. This year they are trying to raise money to help this small business pay back their loan. They will also be taking food donations and donating some of the proceeds to the local food pantry.
Show times will be:Friday, 6 PM to Midnight; Saturday 4 PM to Midnight. The Line-up: -False Pterodactyl -The Ultimatums -The Furr -Hello June – The Roils -Haggard Wulf -The Grass Stains -Captain Catfeesh -Burnin 79 -Spence’s Rye -The Laser Beams -Eck -The Elk River Rockers -The Howdy.

Total Meltdown at Bruno’s
One of the area’s coolest bands, Total Meltdown, will appear for free at Bruno’s on Leon Sullivan Way, starting at 9 PM. I think they could best be described as “Bluegrass Fusion.” We are currently trying to work out our schedules so we can get these guys on Radio Free Charleston. Check out a couple of their videos…
The Wrap Up
That’s not all that’s going on Friday. Southern Culture On The Skids will be at The Empty Glass, but word is that advance ticket sales are so strong that they may already be near capacity. Breedlove returns to the scene at BoDaddy’s in South Charleston, behind the Mound, Friday and Saturday at 10 PM. Born Old brings their old-time music to Taylor Books, with no cover, at 7:30 PM. Deadface Down and Electric Funeral will be at The Boulevard Tavern at 10 PM with a five-dollar cover.
Your PopCulteer will be doing an extra “Stuff To Do” post on Saturday, to bring you more details on cool stuff happening this weekend. You can also expect the RFC Flashback and all our regular features.
