The Girls Rock Camp comes to its thrilling conclusion with a showcase at the Music Farm. You’ll be seeing the next Go-Gos, Le Tigres, and Vivian Girls in the making.

Besides the weekly Bud Light Lime Bikini Bash, you’ll get a chance to see mostly nude women at the Summer of Love Burlesque Freakout.

Ten-year-old Hannah, a local girl with osteosarcoma, is the subject of two benefits this weekend, one at downtown’s Mellow Mushroom and the other at Blu Gorilla Tattoos. If you’ve ever needed an excuse to get inked, this is it.

Between Charleston RiverDogs games, the World TeamTennis Finals, a cornhole competition, the Folly Pier Fishing Tournament, the IOP Beach Run, the Lowcountry Highrollers’ Sibling Rivalry, and a women’s baseball clinic, it’s proving to be a very sporty couple of days.

Theatre 99 has a jam-packed weekend with Blast Off?, Comedy Combat, Improv Riot, and This is Chucktown! shows.

Catch the sunset performances of The Sunset Years at the Village Playhouse.

If you were lucky enough to get a wristband, then you’re going to be auditioning for American Idol at some point on Friday. Tell Randy Jackson “Hey” for me.

Lisa Abernathy and Seth Corts present The Burd and the Bear. Come for the art, stay for the fancy beer.

Yeah, I’d probably be one of the students who swooned over Indiana Jones in Raiders of the Los Ark. None of my college professors were that cute.

We’re at the end of the Contemporary Charleston 2011: Under the Radar Artist Lectures, this time featuring Nina Garner and D.H. Cooper.

Kitten Fever is nothing like cat scratch fever. Instead of getting a weird disease, you’ll get to take home a cute kitten.

You may listen to Rickey Smiley on the radio in the morning, but he’ll be here in person on Friday evening.

Boone Hall Plantation hosts the All-Star Rock Tour, featuring a number of bands that your parents love.

And Burger Babies hosts its first Urban Picnic. Watch out for ants.
