Festival Festival!

Hey, readers! Just wanted to announce something I'll be talking about quite a lot over the next month: Charleston's Third Annual Festival Festival! I'd write about it myself, but, being a lazy blogger, I'll just snip the press release for you. Read up:

Festival Festival // Craft Bazaar

Date: Saturday May 2, 2009 12pm – 10pm

Location: Redux Contemporary Art Center

Price: Free and open to the public

This will be the third annual festival aimed to support local artists and promote creativity in the community. The festival will feature artwork representing the community and performances by Charleston experimental, rock, and pop musicians. The Holy City Craft Bizarre will be held from noon to four and will include vendors selling handmade crafts of all kinds. The Craft Bazaar has been held previously behind Reid Brothers on King Street and is open to anyone who has work to share, from clothing and jewelry to posters and baked goods.

The festival was started as a way to celebrate creativity as a means to bring about meaningful communication and collaboration in Charleston. It is an opportunity for the young creative community of Charleston to share its work and ideas in an open and optimistic setting. Also at the event, the second edition of a Zine/Compilation of local art, poetry, and music will be released by local record label Malted Milk.

The following bands will perform:

The Huspa Concept
Know Nothing Party
The Loose Ends
Oicho Kabu
Precious Moments
The Reverend Cousin Uncle Ben and the Holy Sparks Family Band with Singers and Dancers
Short Shorts
Small Pox

My first press release post. What a special moment...
