On Friday night, Bell celebrated the release of their latest CD at Johnson's Pub. The band's combination of covers and their original blend of "rock, soul, and traces of gospel and jazz" kept the dance floor packed.
Saturday was the second day of Hot Pressed Poster Fest at Redux Studios. The event included poster sales and demonstrations, a graphic art lecture, and ended with a special performance by Bill Carson and Michael Flynn.
Although Ernesto didn't make it to Charleston, we were still feeling the effects of the storm all weekend. The Gibbes Museum of Art postponed its young professionals event until next Thursday, and the Boone Hall Pirate Corn Maze's grand opening was delayed until next weekend. Fortunately, Monday's RiverDogs game, which was the last of the season, was not rained out despite the looming clouds overhead. The day cleared up and fans came out to say goodbye until next season. Spirits were high, heckles (and peanuts) were thrown, and spectators were treated with a rendition of "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" led by the Supersuckers' Eddie Spaghetti.
