Weekend Round-Up: A passion for fashion

The best events in Charleston, March 25-27



This weekend, I’m most excited for the Charleston Record Expo. I’m crossing my fingers for a great find. Guided By Voices, anyone?

Charleston Fashion Week continues through Saturday, after which my feet will be very pleased to no longer have to wear heels. You should make sure to stop by the official after-party, Luxe.

For some fashion action outside of Marion Square, you’ve got rosita loves SCOOP, The Bix Mix, and the Social Primer Pop-Up Shop at Billy Reid.

Are you starting to notice an unusually large number of fixies on the peninsula’s streets? That’s because Charleston and the Holy City Bike Co-op are playing host to this year’s Bike! Bike! Southeast.

If you’re a little bit country, see Don Williams. If you’re a little bit rock ‘n’ roll, Kloverfest 2011 is for you. But if you’re into punk rock, there’s Mike Watt + the Missingmen, and if electronic’s more your thing, go for Home Grown.

If you can’t make it to Watt’s show, catch the Minutemen doc We Jam Econo for free at the Main Library. Or see The Parking Lot Movie in Park Circle.

The Festival of Houses and Gardens and Red Bull Illume continue.

If Tennessee Williams were alive today ... well, he’d be pretty old. It’s his 100th birthday on Saturday, and Threshold Repertory Theatre are celebrating with a day of events, including a performance of The Glass Menagerie.

Get an early start on the Sesquicentennial at the Battle of Charleston re-enactment.

There’s an American Indian Expo, and the Cypress Gardens Cultural Dance Festival.

The Gibbes is hosting a two-day event, called Fine Art and Flowers, which includes an opening night party and a luncheon.

Personally, I don’t think there are many things that are More Fun Than Bowling, but maybe the play at South of Broadway will be. In theater, there’s also The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, Farragut North, If It’s Monday, This Must Be Murder, and Messiah on the Frigidaire.

Charleston Ballet Theatre continues their performance of Nashville.

There’s some fun ways to do some good this weekend. You could Bowl for Kids’ Sake, chow down on chili at the Charleston ZTA Alumnae Chili Cook-Off, gobble up some fried chicken at Battle of the Roosters, or just have fun at the Autism Benefit .

If oysters are more your thing, there’s the Pet Helpers' Oyster Roast, the Oysters and ‘Cue, the Hope on Goat Oyster Roast, the United Methodist Relief Center Oyster Roast,  and the March Madness Charity Oyster Roast, all of which are also benefits.

The Lowcountry Highrollers are at it again with Let Them Eat Skate, a bout against the Rogue Rollergirls from Fayetteville, N.C.

Laugh at the Theatre 99 Improv Jam or Improv Riot.

And the South Carolina Stingray play their last home game of the season against the Greenville Road Warriors on Sunday.
