Oh yeah and about those shows — Locals Weekend offers special savings to two operas, Pia de Tolomei
and Tree of Codes
; three dance shows, Miami City Ballet, New Bodies, and A.I.M.; one play, The Flying Lovers of Vitebsk
; two concert music shows, Chamber Music XI and You Are Mine Own; four jazz performances, Artifacts, Fred Hersch Trio, Trio 3 Plus Vijay Iyer, and Craig Taborn; and the Wells Fargo Festival Finale featuring the Lone Bellow.
Woof — that means snagging a finale ticket (this year's finale is held at The Joe, too) for as little as $18. Hop on this deal while you can, Charleston.
