It's the weekend once again, and we've got a few things to recommend. On Friday night there's a benefit for My Sister's House at Goldbug Island, and your ticket ($10 advance, $15 at the door) will get you a bbq dinner, drink and dessert, as well as music from two groups: Rik Cribb and the Problems, and "The Most Interesting Band In the World", a compilation of local musicians. You can see the website at www.mysistershouse.org.
And/or you may want to check out the new movie It Might Get Loud, showing at the Terrace. It features three famous guitarists: Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin, The Edge of U2, and Jack White of The White Stripes and The Raconteurs -- good stuff.
On Saturday night our friends Wyatt and Ranny Garey will be playing with their band at A Dough Re Mi, starting 8ish, and will be filmed for Carolina Bands Live -- don't miss this party!!
Or you could head to the Navy Yard at Noisette, 1635 Cosgrove Ave, N. Charleston for Skinful Halloween 2009 ($25 advance, $30 at the door) with a variety of music acts, including Ivan Neville and Dumpstaphunk, and our friend Skye Paige with Bizarro Burlesque, among others. See www.skinfulhalloween.com for the details.
And of course we hope you'll come back to the Dough on Tuesday for the jam at 8:30, or come earlier if you're hungry for pizza and wings. Stuart Johnson suggested that we all should talk up the jam with our friends, by email or facebook, because we've got a lot of great music each week and would like to have an even bigger crowd to share it with. . .
And a heads-up for the following weekend -- A Dough Re Mi has Shrimp City Slim on Friday the 30th, and you may want to start planning your costume for the Halloween party at the Dough on Saturday the 31st -- always a fun time!
Also keep in mind the free blues fest in Florence SC that happens November 5-8. See www.peedeebluesbash.com for all the details -- and get over to Florence for that if you can!
