Tomorrow's a new moon and since we've recently gotten pretty into astrology we encourage you to set some intentions during this prime time. It's easy, just say, "I intend to have a kickass weekend." From celebrating our new mayor to live music to the Harlem Globetrotters and Second Sunday, CHS has all the fests you'd ever want. Read on for the how-to guide on weekend fun.


Palmetto's Loading Dock series features performances by Danielle Howle, W. Michael Freund, and Sleeping Policeman, with food available for purchase from The Immortal Lobster. Jams start at 6 p.m.

Real Estate Studio holds an opening reception for Lisa Z. Lindahl's newest exhibit, Sea Wish, from 6-8 p.m.

Get your groove on at Satsang Yoga's ecstatic dance from 7-9 p.m. Everyone's invited to shake what their mamas may or may not have given them.

Byhalia, Mississippi premieres in Charleston and three other cities tonight. Get in on the conversation when you head to Woolfe Street Playhouse at 7:30 p.m. 

We're tellin' you, take advantage of this new moon energy. Head to the Sophia Institute at 6:30 p.m. for a workshop with Debra Moffitt who will lead attendees through guided meditations, music, dance, and writing.

Head to Dancefx on East Bay for a roaring 20s hot jazz dance club at 7:15 p.m. for a Lindy hop dance lesson followed by a beginner swing lesson at 8 p.m. and a social dance party after.

Richard Wooten plays acoustic rock, covers, and originals at My Father's Mustache at 6 p.m.


Get fit for free at Nexton's boot camp event at the Great Lawn from 10 a.m.-noon. Go for the exercise, stay for coffee and juice from Coastal Coffee Roasters and Blue Barn Juice Co.

Explore Kiawah's beach and identify shells during this exploration walk from 10 a.m.-noon.

National touring group Activated Story Theatre brings their interactive folk tales to the Charleston Museum at 10:30 a.m.

Mayor-elect John Tecklenburg will play some piano jams at Hampton Park's Family Day from 1-5 p.m. If that isn't enticing enough, stick around for performances from HoneySmoke, the High Divers, Smokey Weiner and the Hot Links, along with interactive hula hoopers, stilt walkers, and jugglers. Woo!

The Harlem Globetrotters hit the North Charleston Coliseum with their sweet skills at both 2 and 7 p.m.

Head to West Ashley's Green Goat for an oyster roast from 3-6 p.m. — $15 for all you can stuff in your mouthhole.

Live life unplugged (just kidding, you can totally Instagram your artfully held beer) in Palmetto Brewery's tasting room when Shane Clark plays some acoustic jams starting at 4 p.m.

A whole heck of a lot of local female vocalists take the stage at Charleston Music Hall at 8 p.m. when they sing their versions of Neil Young songs.

Just because it's January doesn't mean you have to miss out on fresh, local goods. The Johns Island Farmers market is kickin' it at their usual spot from 9 a.m.-1 p.m.


Take the kids or just bring yourself to Mellow Mushroom Avondale's screening of Inside Out at 10 a.m. Kids can enjoy a craft and activity along with $5 kids' meals.

Save the Light (the Morris Island Lighthouse to be exact) at an oyster roast at Bowens Island from 2-5 p.m. featuring performances by Southbound 17, the Minimum Wage Band, and the Shakin' Martinis.

It's Second Sunday! A lot of fun stuff goes down on King Street during this monthly event. We previewed a cool food truck brunch earlier this week.

If you prefer yoga with a side of beer then head to Holy City Brewing at 10 a.m. for both!
