WUSC Presents Folkcycle Fest Part 2

WUSC Presents Folkcycle Fest Part 2: Burrito Boogaloo  Saturday April 14

1-10pm  El Burrito, Columbia, SC  $5 +21/ $7 under

featuring Junior Astronomers, The Get Wets, Sea Wolf Mutiny, and so many others.

Alright guys. It’s almost summer, and like I said in my article about Beale St Music Festival last week, the summer music festivals are beginning. And we’ve got one in our very own Columbia, South Carolina to kick it off. It may be a small show compared to the huge festivals like Coachella and Lollapalooza, but seriously, it’s a ridiculously good lineup. The event starts at 1pm and goes straight until 10pm with a HUGE number of activities and performers for an obnoxiously small price. If you like music, comedy, or puppets and you live in South Carolina, it would be quite pathetic if you did not want to go to this.

The bands featured are ones that SceneSC has covered many a time and we’ll be there on Saturday to cover the whole thing. I have actually only seen two of the bands on the bill so I am excited to see the ones that I have heard so much about but never got a chance to see, such as Junior Astronomers. David can attest to this, but I’ve heard they’re damn good live. We’ve also got Damian Herring and Dear Blanca, two fantastic acts that are sure to blow minds. This lineup was carefully picked out by WUSC, Columbia’s premier radio station, so every band on it has gotta be good.

I posted a picture of the schedule at the top of this article so check that out and you can see for yourself that there is a lot going on. There are some great stand up comedians, a play, and like I said before, more music than you can even imagine. WUSC will also be raffling off a unicycle along with many other prizes. There will be burritos and drinks, and I also heard that there may be a burrito eating contest.

Hopefully this will start off an annual thing and for that to happen people need to come. Drag your little bums out of bed next Saturday and get there.

About the Author

Yes, I was named after famous british polar bear Rupert. In fact, I was named after a cat that was named after that cartoon bear. This is exactly the reason why I’d have to say an orange cat is my spirit animal. Though, it’s kind of more like this cat is my spirit goddess. My spirit animal is a bit more like a grizzly duck, which is a grizzly bear with a duck’s beak. Two reasons: 1) When I wake up I am angry and grumble a lot, like a grizzly bear but once I wake up I am (usually) friendly and I quack a lot, and 2) I own a sweater with a grizzly bear on it and one with a duck on it. I am obviously obsessed with music and everything to do with music. I have been to over 80 concerts, I am in a band called One Two Skidoo, and I also co-host a radio show of that same name on WUSC. I was born in a country called London (I would say England, but you Americans seem to be set on the fact that England is only London). I was actually born in Brighton, England, but I don’t wanna confuse you too much so we’ll say I’m from London. I then moved to a super freezing area of Canada. You’re probably thinking “but all of Canada is super freezing!”. That’s not true. Well, kind of not true. I do that school thing at the University of South Carolina, and I write about music on this website, obviously. David Stringer is my hero.
