“I’ve had a big crush on Charleston for years, and after moving back here from Los Angeles, I knew I wanted to develop a yearly festival that reflects the creativity and talent that are overflowing here from the musicians, artists, and beyond,” says Charleston Mini-Wavefest producer Simon Cantlon. That idea will come to fruition Saturday when a humdinger of a party takes place at Awendaw Green. Charleston’s Avi Jacobs, Jordan Igoe, and Asheville’s Pierce Edens will perform, in addition to our favorite old school puppeteer Will Schutze with his marionette crooner, Mr. Bonetangles. Guests are allowed to bring their own beverages, but food will also be available for purchase. This event is for all ages; even leashed pets are welcome. But the best part? Charleston Wavefest is a benefit for Lowcountry AIDS Services, a nonprofit organization serving men, women and children living with HIV/AIDS in Berkeley, Charleston, and Dorchester counties. One dollar from each $10 entrance fee will go directly to the nonprofit, so you can party with a purpose.
