East End Bazaar - Artisan's Market
Starting in April and ending in October, you can get your arts fix at the corner of E Washington and Ruffner! Every Saturday from 10am - 3pm! See you there!
Third Eye Cabaret at The Charleston Cellar
With blends of musical performances, spoken word and poetry, Third Eye is really unique and thought provoking. It's definitely our recomendation for a Thursday evening. Starts at 7pm - with hosts Doug and Julie!
The Empty Glass
Known for their live music, The Empty Glass is one of the best places in downtown Charleston to hear some up and coming local talent. Come down for Open-Mic night on Monday if you think you've got what it takes!
Film and Movies
Not only can you find talented local musicians and performers here. The "Pork Chop" movies were created by a local filmmaker, Eamon Hardiman, who also created "Zombie Babies" and "The Crawling Dead".. If you're a horror fan like us, you'll be very proud.

"Charleston--it was such a rare thing to ever come here. Field trips, school contests, and quiz bowl. Other than driving through to someplace else, I can count on one hand the times I came to Charleston as a kid.

We just want you guys to know a little more about our staff and what we do, so you guys can better understand exactly what it is we do and how you can get involved.
Basically The Charleston Underground was officially formed December 23rd, 2012. With Jessica Cha and Renae "Perrywinkleblue" Phillips behind the wheel in addition to our content creators (Jason "Roadblock" Robinson and Kitty Killton at that point) we reached 500 Likes in a little over two days. Facebook even awarded us with a milestone for reaching 400+ in the first 48 hours. We were completely blown away and still are now that we're nearing 1,000 Likes.
As you may have read, we are a group of artists who are interested in getting our community involved in the arts/entertainment arena. We help artists get exposure and try to make a difference with all aspects of the arts. With the limited staff that we do have, we work very hard to get information to everyone and to get out and cover everything we possibly can.
Since we began, we've gained some very talented staff members and have really come together as a group of artists. From food reviews to concerts, from painting to film production, we cover a wide variety of topics and continue to look for new and upcoming artists to share with the community.
With that being said, this is what we need from you guys!
- Pass the word around about The Charleston Underground - we're a great networking and promotional tool to use, and even if you don't know performers and artists, share us with your friends, because everyone appreciates art and entertainment!
- Like our Facebook page if you haven't already done so. Like we were speaking about earlier, we have an audience of 1,500-2,500 people weekly, yet only 959 Likes.. so we know you're out there. This way too, we can see exactly who is tuning in to our page and we can project demographics to see what you guys are most interested in!
So if we can get this ball rolling once again and get more people coming to downtown Charleston for the arts, we feel like it could make a great impact on the community.
We'll also be announcing something HUGE in the coming month, so STAY TUNED because you DO NOT want to miss this. Clear your calendars for June 1st folks. That's all we can say right now!

So if you and your friends are having a night out on the town, I would recommend Adelphia's if you're drunk and don't care much about particulars, otherwise, you may want to look elsewhere in Charleston.

We are ASTOUNDED at the effort put forth by everyone in the past two days. We opened our official Facebook page - http://www.facebook.com/CharlestonUnderground two days ago and had 250 Likes within 24 hours of the launch!
If that wasn't enough, we at CHUG decided "Heck, if we can get 250 in 24 hours, we can get another 250 can't we?"
So we put out a challenge to hit 500 Likes within 48 hours and like Barney Stinson, you guys told us "Challenge Accepted!" and blew us away.
We even decided to make it worth your while. We put up the claim that if you guys can hit 500 Likes by our deadline we would post nude photos of a staff member. But you guys moved too fast for us to deny you a second staff member included in the deal.
We got closer to the deadline and decided we would extend it until midnight, just because some people work and can't really be online until after 5pm. Glad we did. We even upped the ante again and said anyone who shares our launch posts by midnight tonight, we would invite you to the 'nudies photoshoot' (which by the way, is going to be the most epic shoot you've ever seen!)
So we hit 501 Likes around 7pm and started sending out the address in private messages to those of you who shared our launch posts. As of this moment, we have 536 Likes and still 1 hour left to share the launch posts and guaranteeing your invite to the shoot.
Also, if you are coming to the photoshoot, you will need to bring your ID with you. This is for three reasons.
1) We will have drinks at the house and we will not allow you to have one if we cannot verify you're of a legal drinking age.
2) Because this will be a surprise for those who do not attend, you must sign an NDA (non-disclosure agreement) to attend the photoshoot.
3) And obviously there will be nudity at the house, so if you're under the age of 18, we cannot allow you to come inside the house. What you do outside the house with binoculars is up to you. :)
We will be announcing the date and time shortly, but it will take place in the next couple days.
ALSO ----- BIG ANNOUNCEMENT TOMORROW and we would love for you all to participate! Stay tuned! You guys are amazing!
Let's do this Charleston!
