The Redux Contemporary Art Center hosts The Holy City Craft Bazaar on Sat. May 2 from noon-10 p.m. The third annual festival has done a great job so far at bringing local artists, artisans, and musicians together for a good cause. The bazaar is open to anyone who has creative work to share, including a variety of artwork, clothing, and jewelry. Vendors will be selling handmade crafts from noon-4 p.m. and Charleston's very own nonprofit community kitchen, One World Cafe, will provide great food.
Bands include: The Huspa Concept, Hypnosquad, Know Nothing Party, The Loose Ends, Oicho Kabu, Precious Moments, Short Shorts, Small Pox, Surfin Serf. To promote awareness and education of creativity in the Charleston arts scene, local record label Malted Milk will release the second edition of a Zine/Compilation of local art, poetry, and music. It's all. Call (843) 637-1707 or visit www.myspace.com/charlestonfestival for details. —Reina Gascon-Lopez
