CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- This week's "RFC MINI SHOW" on the PopCult blog (blogs.wvgazette.com/popcult) is a special sepia solo showcase for Andrew Hellblinki. The Hellblinki Sextet first appeared on "Radio Free Charleston" way back on episode 49 in 2008. They were the first out-of-town band featured on the show.
Now Hellblinki has a new album, "Multitudes," nearly finished, and Andrew is undertaking a solo tour and a Kickstarter campaign to raise the funds to manufacture it.
As of the show's taping, there was a little more than two weeks left in the campaign. The rewards range from a download of the album for $1 to all kinds of bonuses, like CD and vinyl copies of the album, jewelry and house shows. You can find out more about the campaign at PopCult.Also in PopCult this week is a bonus song by The BrotherSisters. "Shady Grove" was recorded at Third Eye Cabaret a few weeks ago and was posted to remind readers of the BrotherSisters CD Release show Thursday night at The Cellar, 8 Capitol St., It starts at 8 p.m. and includes opening act Matt McGuire and a closing set by Mark Bates.
