Weekend Round-up: Lightning Round

The best events in Charleston March 28-30



Unfortunately, this weekend's weather doesn't look too hot. So much for March coming in like a lion and leaving like a lamb, it's just been a lion all month. But we're not going to let a little rain dampen our fun — and neither should you.

Friday Put on your boogie show and head over to Avondale’s Mellow Mushroom for the beginning of a two-day disco rave birthday celebration. 

Have a family that puts the ‘fun’ in dysfunctional? You’ll probably relate to Threshold Rep’s Perfectly Normal People.

Las Olas is showing off new seasonal fashions at the Music Farm. Reggae band Long Miles will provide the soundtrack for summer looks.

"Epic" may have entered the modern lexicon as a synonym for cool or awesome, but the Summerville Orchestra is playing some truly epic music at their Legends and Tales concert.

Beat the tourists to local goods and visit the Evening Art Market at the City Market before cavorting around the bars on East Bay and Market streets. 

Saturday Spring Jam Music Fest is back. Grab the lawn chairs — and probably a poncho — and watch up-and-coming artists like the Weeks, Kopecky Family Band, and Augustana rock out Brittlebank Park. 

Forget Lance Armstrong and the Tour de France, the Park Circle Criterium bike race is in town. Cyclists will race around tight corners in one of Charleston’s coolest neighborhoods. 

Dancing in the moonlight was never so eco friendly. Check out Earth Hour, sponsored by local and federal governments. 

One of the joys of being an adult is eating whatever you want. Beer for breakfast? Homegrown Brewing is hosting a Cask Breakfast with brews and food pairings.

Catch country music’s newest hotshot, Jana Kramer, at Music Farm

Sunday What better way to worship on a Sunday than watching Mike Birbiglia’s “Thank God for Jokes” Tour at Charleston Music Hall? 

Re-Trend’s Clothing & Accessory Swap kills two birds with one stone — clean out your closet and get some new threads. 

Say goodbye to the clowns of Spring Carnival. It’s the last day to visit the Festival Centre and eat candied apples and cotton candy.

If couch surfing’s more your style, head over to Terrace Theater for a screening of indie documentary One Couch at a Time.
