Downtown Columbia will come to life this Thursday night with music, food, drinks, fun and photography.
The 2011 Urban Tour will feature music from some of SceneSC’s favorite bands including The Unawares, Say Brother, Day Clean and the The Dubber.
The most exciting part of the night might be at Free Times headquarters where local photographers will be showing their local rock and roll pictures. Well, not all of the photos will be of local bands, but the exhibit will feature all local musicians. This is in companion with the “Who Shot Rock and Roll” exhibit currently going on at the Columbia Museum of Art. Photographers beign featured are Angie Owens, Cameron Yeager, Graeme Fouste, Scott Bilby, and Sean Rayford.
If you’re trying to be the hippest, coolest, most snazzy person on the street you better be hanging out at The Whig block party. You’ll most likely see team SceneSC there and The Shop Tart since she said on twitter that her favorite place to relax is The Whig.
