Tuesday we updated you with the latest news from Captain Action and ReMEGO figures. Wednesday I posted an essay about a great new way to deal with telemarketers. Yesterday our Bookshelf featured covered the career of the late comic book great, Al Fieldstein. We also previewed this weekend’s Theater events and looked at what’s happening at The Blue Parrot.
Looking ahead to the weekend. Tomorrow will see a new RFC Flashback entry, reviving one of the “lost” episodes of Radio Free Charleston. Sunday we are running a featuring introducing you to The Ford Theater Reunion, who will be playing at The Boulevard Tavern next week.
And now that we’re all caught up, how about we look at some of the cool things happening in and around Charleston this weekend that we haven’t already covered yet?
At The Boulevard Tavern at 10 PM, it’s the headlining debut of Soul Slaw, Charleston, WV’s newest collective effort to provide the Kanawha Valley with tasty jams. Well seasoned musicians, marinated in the local scene for years, playing extended versions of songs from Allmans to Zappa. Special guests, The Amazing Automatics kick off the evening with tunes we all know and love.The cover is five bucks.
FREE COMIC BOOK DAY
Head to your local comic book shop and pick up as many free comics as you are allowed. It’s all day long and it’s your best chance to get something for nothing all year.
Of if you get your comics from Westfield, like I do, just order them online.
