Rob Fowler's Mustache Art Show 

When: Sat., July 3, 8 p.m. 2010
Phone: (843) 209-2377
You’ve got to respect men that rock facial hair during the summer. It’s bad enough sweating in the swelter wearing the least amount of clothing you can legally get away with, but to have what is essentially a fur coat resting on you upper lip — talk about macho. Show your respect at the Rob Fowler’s Mustache Art Show (named in honor of the previously mustachioed weatherman) at the Upper Deck. The event is organized by Justin Cammer, a local artist, who says Fowler’s former crumb catcher is “kind of nostalgic to Charleston specifically.” Fowler survived kidney cancer a few years ago and shaved his infamous strip of hair to raise awareness for the American Cancer Society. Cammer also wanted to support the organization, adding a “serious side” to this “wacky, goofy show.” If you pay $10 — which goes to ACS — you get a coupon for half-priced liquor and $1.50 for most bottles of domestic beer. Members of the Holy City Beard and Mustache Society will be in attendance, wringing perspiration from their lengthy beards. The night also features work from Philip Hyman, tattoo artist Lindsey Hanniford, painter Christina Rodino, photographer Jason Layne, and painter Tim Showers. Some of the art will be weather related in honor of the meteorologist, but most will include mustaches. There will also be jewelry and even “prosthetic mustaches for the mustache impaired,” by Kelly Latta, for sale. A contest for the best mustache will take place at 10 p.m. Better stop shaving now. —Susan Cohen
