Run Dan Run At Trusted Palate

Melodic and unpredictable local pop-rock band Run Dan Run — led by singer, songwriter, and keyboardist Dan McCurry — perform a summer tour kick-off gig on Thurs. July 17 at the Trusted Palate (563 King St., 843-577-7271). They share that bill with Athens, Ga., songstress Allison Weiss and Charlotte songwriter Dylan Gilbert. "We'll be playing two sets ourselves, the first set being our usual rock set," says McCurry. "The second will be a 'dance party,' which will feature us looking crazy, throwing down mad beats on our straight old-school hip-hop beat machine, the legendary Roland 808, ripping synths, and the cheese factor. We're asking people to dress accordingly and bring flashlights." The band leaves the next day for a two-week tour through the Carolinas and Georgia.

Dig The Stained Glass

Rising from the shards of local rock bands Big J. Hosaphat and Water Street, a new guitar-driven combo is ready to rock. Stained Glass Wall features guitarist Everette Bigbee, singer/guitarist Scott Freeman, bassist Joe Innella, and drummer David Clark. They're handling a mix of classic rock, country, blues, and psyche. Check 'em out on Sat. July 12 at Buffalo South (1409 Folly Road, 843-406-0888). Visit www.myspace.com/stainedglasswall for more.

At Muddy Waters

The Palmetto Acoustic Series kicks back into action this Thurs. July 17 at 7:30 p.m. with music from local singer/guitarists Reed Waddle and Jon Pringle. The seasonal events showcase local and regional singer/songwriters performing original music. Previously held at the Communications Museum, the series continues in West Ashley at the Muddy Waters Coffee Bar (1331 Ashley River Road, 843-795-0848). "This is the one-year anniversary of the Palmetto Acoustic and an exciting time for the series," says director Madeline Evans. Visit www.myspace.com/palmettoacoustic.

Gridlock At The Joe

Dave Matthews Band fans had a mighty hard time (and an incredibly long wait) squeezing past security at The Joe on the Fourth. Lines ran from the single front entrance along Fishburne Street to the gates of the Citadel! On Monday, WTMA morning host Richard Todd said the lousy situation was "like trying to push a marshmallow through a coin slot." —T. Ballard Lesemann
