Grammy-nominated Gungor, a Christian rock band, is appearing at 8 p.m. Oct. 10 at the Charleston Music Hall.
The 10-piece band, which specializes in what it calls “liturgical post rock,” will perform its version of worship music. The show is the first presented by Revival Entertainment, a new company started by Charles Carmody, the 23-year-old Mount Pleasant native who is the new director of the Music Hall.
Doors open at 7 p.m. General admission tickets are $20; VIP tickets, which include both first-choice seating and a Q&A session with the band, are $30. To buy tickets, go to www.charlestonmusichall.com or call 800-514-3849.
The Village Rep on Woolfe, the downtown iteration of The Village Playhouse, announced early this year it was relocating to a new downtown location: the former Maddin Bros. warehouse on Woolfe Street.
The plan was to inaugurate the 150-seat cabaret-style theatre with a production of “Love, Loss and What I Wore” by Delia and Nora Ephron on Oct. 11, but renovation delays are forcing Village Rep to adjust its season schedule.
The opening play will move to the end of the season (the first two weekends in May 2013), and the second show, “The Man Who Came to Dinner” by Moss Hart and George Kaufman, will be the production that baptizes the building Dec. 7 (when it was originally slated to start).
“While the construction company has been busy all summer, they have encountered several permit and material delivery delays which set them back and slowed a lot of the construction time line,” announced the Village Rep recently. “Because of that, our opening date has been postponed six weeks and we will be unable to present ‘Love, Loss and What I Wore’ in October as originally planned.”
The planned season remains full; only the grand opening required a switcheroo.
Evvie Harmon is hoping for a revolution. And she wants public art to facilitate it.
Harmon is organizing the Charleston Project, which takes its inspiration from the semi-anonymous French artist JR, who specializes in public art installations and who won the 2011 TED Prize for his “Inside Out” concept.
“ ‘Inside Out’ is a large-scale participatory art project that transforms messages of personal identity into pieces of artistic work,” states the artist’s website. “Everyone is challenged to use black-and-white photographic portraits to discover, reveal and share the untold stories and images of people around the world. These digitally uploaded images will be made into posters and sent back to the project’s co-creators for them to exhibit in their own communities.”
Harmon has signed on. She has launched a Facebook campaign to get people interested and “to build a global network of South Carolina arts-educated.”
She has no intention to stop with Inside Out. She intends to affirm the importance of the arts in everyday life. Economies, she said, depend on creative types.
She’s in the process of setting up a nonprofit and wants to raise money by offering special events, merchandise and more.
The goal? “To have 150,000 arts-educated people around the world to join their state in spreading our (TED-inspired) ‘wish to change the world’ through arts education.”
On Thursday, Harmon and her fellow organizers are hosting a fundraising event called “I am SC and so can you: A carnival for the arts” from 6-11 p.m. at the Hippodrome, 360 Concord St. Admission is $10. To get in and eat, too, it will cost $20.
