Last week’s floods are still in the forefront of everyone’s minds, so this week STUFF TO DO will still focus on some upcoming benefits and fundraising efforts to help alleviate and rebuild some of the damage. We’ll also mention a couple of other shows, too.
A Comedy Beneift for flood victims will take place at Fireside Bar & Lounge. Andy Frampton, Jacob Hall, Ian Nolte, Lee Hale, Angela Davis, Nathan Thomas, and Cody Lambert have been announced and others may be added to the bill. The plan is to put on a comedy show this Friday night (July 1st) at Fireside Bar and Lounge located in Charleston’s Historic East End (above Little India). Details for where exactly the money will be going will be announced as the week progresses. Check the event page on Facebook for up to date information. There won’t be a set cover charge, but a donation is required to attend. Doors open at 9:00 pm. This show is for ages 21+.
HARRAH and TriElement are having their long-announced dual CD release show at The Empty Glass Friday night, but they have added a toy drive for flood victims to the mix. Bring a new toy, appropriate for one of the children who lost everything in the flooding, and you get to pick either the new HARRAH CD or the new TriElement CD as a free bonus.
At some point on Saturday, there will be a concert held at the site of the former Clendenin Dairy Queen. Here’s what we’ve gleaned from Facebook: “Elk River is a musical town, and what better way to help the flood victims? Wv Bad Blood and Tommy’s Triple Threat Blues Band, along with other acts (can’t give it all away yet) will be performing…and ALL proceeds will be going to victims of the flood!! We will have raffle prizes as well….some of which I think you local metal heads are gonna LOVE wink wink!! More details as they come! Stay tuned…these guys have an awesome Saturday in mind for you all….and it helps your neighbors and loved ones!! Spread the word!!”
We will do our best to keep you updated on all the various flood benefits being organized over this holiday weekend. Keep reading PopCult for the latest.
