Hello, Biscuit Listeners and welcome to freshly baked, buttery and flaky edition of The Biscuit Podcast brought to you by Charlotte is Creative. I’m your freshly sunburnt host, Andy Goh. Today is May 1st, 2019.
This past weekend was a big one for the city of Charlotte. Everywhere you turned, it seemed an exciting, creative or communal event was taking place. From Tuck Fest at the White Water Center to the Queen’s Cup Steeple Chase to Vintage Charlotte’s Spring Market, there was no shortage of ways to experience the Queen City at her finest.
While we couldn’t be everywhere, we did spend some time at BOOM Festival and Open Streets 704 in Plaza Midwood. Along the way, we were able to talk to some of the faces in the crowd, including artists John Hariston Jr., and Andrea Downs, Charlotte cultural queen Davita Galloway and BOOM founder and Executive Director Manoj Kesevan. Each of them had lots to say about what seemed like an ideal day in the QC.
Let’s take a listen...
