There’s a popular underground holiday coming up this Friday. It has something to do with an illegal plant, but after hours of strenuous research, I haven’t been able to figure out what it could possibly be. All these damn musicians seem pretty excited about it, though, and they’re throwing all sorts of parties around Charleston to celebrate.
I’m sorry to say that I can’t offer any details about what this mysterious “4/20” entails. What I can offer, though, is a few ways that those who might be more in the know can enjoy the occasion. There is some great live music in Charleston that night, and I’ve compiled all the shows into one big list so you hooligans can go out and enjoy yourselves.
