This Friday, the Hippodrome of downtown Charleston in partnership with College of Charleston led record label 1770 Records will host a singer/songwriter night in benefit of The Lowcountry Food Bank. Performing are various South Carolinian artists such as Keon Masters of Brave Baby, Mitch Wetherington of Southwood, Tyler Boone, Shane Tanner of Brother, and Justin Osborne of Sequoyah Prep School.
The Hippodrome has played host to a variety of events for the community, including comedy nights, fashion exhibitions, fundraisers benefiting a number of organizations, as well as screenings of movies and major sports events. It is located near the Charleston Aquarium and faces the waterfront. There is a nice blend of artists set to perform at this particular benefit. Having seen the aforementioned artists play live with their respective bands, I can personally attest to the spectacle that this line up will provide. Seeing them take to the mic as soloists will be interesting and no doubt entertaining.
I’m curious to see Shane Tanner play sans his former band mates in Brother, whose shows were always fun to see around College of Charleston’s campus. Shannon Vogt, a fellow CofC student, is sure to put on a good show if the music streaming on her Facebook page is anything to go by. Keon Masters, Mitch Wetherington, and Justin Osborne who jammed with their musical compadres at Music Farm a bit over two weeks ago, are bound to be crowd pleasers if not for their on-stage charisma then for their amazing lyrical and instrumental capabilities. Friday evening, there promises to be something to tickle everyone’s musical palate from indie to folk to good ole country rock.
