Weekend Round-Up: A Spoleto Send-Off 

The best events in Charleston June 8-10

Alas, another successful Spoleto season comes to a close this weekend. It feels like just yesterday we were gearing up for all of the arts events, but now we have to say goodbye to Piccolo (at its Hampton Park finale) and to the main event (at Middleton Place).

Alice Cooper won't perform in town until Monday, but get yourself over to Sunday's RiverDogs game if you want to see him throw the first pitch.

Grin and bare it at the Carolina Burlesque Festival.

Karim Nagi, and Egyptian drummer, DJ, and folk dancer, will perform at the American Theater.

The Remembrance Ceremony at Fort Moultrie will pay tribute to Pan African ancestors who perished during the Middle Passage.

It's a Second Sunday on King, and we're sure it'll be a warm one.

The deck at the Pour House will be covered with buyable art on Saturday at a benefit for the Yo Art! Project, and Lucky's Southern Grill has a benefit for the Lowcountry Food Bank. Or get your knifes sharpened for a good cause at the Coastal Cupboard.

MUSC students are holding their annual HOPE 5K, which raises money and awareness for Lou Gherig's disease.

As part of an ongoing exhibit, Studio PS plays host to the Very Special Arts South Carolina Wearable Arts Fashion/Sales Show.

Lee Domann will perform Down to Monterey, a 1960s-themed theatrical song-cycle.

Art exhibits by Santo Bruno and Sarah Boyts Yoder open.

The grainy black-and-white indie film The Color Wheel is worth a watch in Park Circle.

Count butterflies at Congaree National Park.

The Charleston County Park and Recreation Commission kicks off their Reggae Nights with Jahson and the Natty Vibes.

Local businesses like Cannonborough Beverage Co. and King of Pops will have samples of cool delights at Williams Sonoma on Sunday.

Everyone's favorite neo-Motown band Fitz and the Tantrums returns to Charleston.

And everyone's favorite person in the whole entire world, Glenn Beck, brings his Unelectable Tour II to the North Charleston Performing Arts Center. I could not be more excited.
