Firefly in The Vista
With access to the actual synchronized fireflies requiring luck in a lottery to enjoy due to COVID-19, the Congaree Vista Guild and the Congaree National Park are working to give you a substitute experience. Visitors to the neighborhood on the evenings of May 28 and 29 are encouraged to pick up personal flashing lights at local businesses and wear them in a mimicking tribute to the Midlands’ natural marvel.
The WECO Hip-Hop Chronicles
This ongoing hip-hop series highlights the next generation of Columbia hip-hop talent (rappers and beatmakers) alongside some choice out-of-town acts. Organized by local rapper KOS, who is also the promoter behind The Soda City Pop, this edition of the Chronicles will feature Pressure Beats, Tam the Viibe, Infamous Hippy, DHD, DLB, Doug Tarentino, Teedo Gonzalez, Wattson, Dawson Lee, and AR Shad, among others, while North Carolina’s OG Bey Harris, the Remount Classics label co-founder and an MC that’s equal parts 90s Golden Era and indie experimental, is the featured artist from outside the 803. New Brookland is still operating at limited capacity, so this is a seated show. Tickets are $7 or $20 for 4. Doors open at 7.
