WEB: Tweet-tweet

WEB:Got Paint?

Thegazz.com ArtAttack blog has been renamed FreshPaint, and we've added local artists and art scene guerillas Dane Klingaman and Andrea Anderson as bloggers.

Dane received his bachelor's degree in Studio Art from the University of Charleston, where he also hit baseball. He came to Charleston by way of San Francisco and Minneapolis, and currently operates a live/work space known as the Hansford Art House.

Andrea recently completed her Masters of Fine Arts at Ohio University. She has a history of collaborative interdisciplinary efforts with other artists, focused primarily on new and non- traditional media, such as video, installation and performance.

She is a gallery director, artist and plays banjo in the Buttonflies, a quintet of edgy folk rockers out of Huntington.

Bring on the comments at the blog on arts coverage in the area.

WEB: RFC 53 online

Episode 53 of "Radio Free Charleston," is now online at media.cnpapers.com/rfc053. and for those who've grumbled about the recent classic car shows blocking off Kanawha Boulevard, host Rudy Panucci has an interesting video for you.

"Here's a quick trip down the Boulevard on one of those rare occasions when it HASN'T been closed by a car show," he grouses on screen. He does not lie about the trip's quickness.

You'll also see and hear the return of hard-rocking band Ten Carp Lie to the local club scene in a performance of "I Just" at the Blue Parrot. (See myspace .com/tencarplie for more of their sound.) Then, there's a chaser of syncopated riffing by the trio Corporate Orange on "Stank Swamp Thing," filmed at a Davis Park Bridge event for the homeless (for more, go to myspace.com/corporate orange).

Watch also for a short, stylish promo video for the closing weekend of "Jack the Ripper," the latest Kehde/Scarpelli musical for the Contemporary Youth Arts Company. The musical wraps up its run at 8 p.m. today through Saturday at Capitol Center Theater, 123 Summers St. Cast members include Ryan Hardiman as Jack, Tanya Dillon Page as Mother and Melanie Larch as Mary Kelly. Tickets are $9.50 for adults and $5.50 for students and seniors.

Read production notes on the new show at the PopCult blog at thegazz.com.
