Do you have a ticket for THIS SUNDAY's live Mountain Stage in Charleston with Lake Street Dive, Seratones, Royal Wood, Lucy Wainwright Roche & Suzzy Roche and My Bubba? If you do, you're in for a treat. If you don't, you better hurry. As of this writing less than 60 tickets remain, available at The Clay Center Box Office, 304.561.3570, or HERE.
Since this show is a little different than our "home shows" at the Culture Center, here are a few tips for this Sunday.
-Where Do I Enter? First of all, there is plenty of parking nearby, including the Clay Center's reasonably priced event parking on Washington Street. Use the main entrance to the Clay Center. The box office will open at 5p.m. for will-call tickets, and the grand lobby will open at 6p.m. We'll have merchandise and, yes, a bartender on site. A lot of on-stage presentations ask attendees to enter through the Walker Theater (off Brooks Street) but not this time. We want lots of elbow room while you're picking out your merchandise.
-What's this "On-Stage Seating" all about? We hope our guest-artists aren't creeped out by our frequent use of the word "intimate" in describing this show. Take a look at the photo above. Your seats are literally ON-STAGE at the Clay Center. It's still general admission, so arrive early to be first to enter when seating begins at 6:30pm. The Clay Center's lovely team of volunteer ushers will be on hand to help guide you and answer questions, including help with handicap accessible seating.
-What else is different? Not much. The show will still go about 2.5 hours, will still feature five guests, and there will be no intermission (refreshment sales end after the show starts). Our singer Julie Adams is out of town, so Larry Groce and his wife Sandra will be doing a tune from LG's new record "Live Forever." Those of you in attendance will also get the first chance to purchase tickets to our unannounced July 24 show in Charleston.
Summer is here, and Mountain Stage is excited for all the great music happening in Charleston and beyond.
