Shark Week is a week-long festival hosted by Clemson’s student-run alternative radio station, WSBF 88.1 FM. The station is hosting a series of events early in the week including a Blood Drive on Wednesday, April 12th at the CU Horse Shoe. Everyone who gives blood will get free entry to the concerts happening Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night. More on that below.
Thursday, April 13th: Electric Sons, Contour, and C0nvexity at The Barnes Center
Gather at The Barnes Center on Thursday night at 7pm for ‘Loud Barnes Gosh Darn’, an electronic music celebration that will take place in the old barn with some of the region’s top electronic performers. The music will go until midnight and there will be a photo booth set up so concertgoers can document their experience and get into the spirit of Shark Week. The Barnes Center has been newly renovated and this show will be a great way to kick off the weekend with some high energy electronic tunes. Below you’ll find the music video for “Breathing Electricity” by The Electric Sons off their 2014 EP Chromaesthesia.
Friday, April 14th: Dear Blanca, Darby Wilcox, and Timothy Ezekiel Bell at the SC Botanical Gardens
On Friday night there’s an outdoor show at the SC Botanical Gardens from 8pm to 11pm, with a bit of a folk rock lean featuring Dear Blanca, Darby Wilcox, and Timothy Ezekiel Bell. With the beautiful South Carolina Spring weather coming into full swing and three great artists bringing the laid-back fall vibes, Friday night’s concert will not be one to miss. Get a taste of Dear Blanca below with the music video for “Boulders” off their 2014 album Pobrecito.
Saturday: April 15th: Stop Light Observations, Jackson Scott, MyBrother MySister, and Jaws The Girl at TD’s
Saturday night is the final show at TD’s Food & Drink, with Jaws the Girl, MyBrother MySister, Jackson Scott, and Stop Light Observations topping it all off. TD’s is a pretty big bar, and the people at WSBF are expecting up to a 500 person turnout. I wouldn’t be surprised if the show is completely sold out by the time Stop Light Observations plays, so I’d recommend you get there early so you don’t miss the action. Music starts at 8pm and goes until midnight. Stream Stop Light Observations’ music video for “Security” off their 2016 album Toogoodoo below.
