We’ve been getting April showers a little early this year, so enjoy the iffy weather with a mix of indoor and outdoor activities this week.

Monday. Sit back and relax after a stressful day at work. Spend your evening listening to the classical stylings of the College of Charleston vocal performance students. Refreshments will also be included if you want a free snack while you’re at it.

Tuesday. If CofC’s voice students got you pumped on some classical tunes, be sure to check out Diana Kirkpatrick’s organ recital during your lunch break. Then unwind Tuesday night in support of women’s equality at the Yes, I’m a Feminist party being held at College of Charleston’s Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art.

Wednesday. You’ve made it through hump day. Celebrate and go to Big Gun Burger Shop for a good laugh at their Open Mic Comedy Night. Or if you’re in the mood for something a little more educational, learn about the benefits of alkaline water at Lovegrove Health Solutions.

Thursday. Begin your evening by checking out Linda Fantuzzo’s Brush with Nature opening at Rebekah Jacob Gallery. Then head south on King and make a stop on CofC campus to see the screening of a new film, Trust: Second Acts in Young Lives, followed by a Q&A with filmmaker Nancy Kelly.

Friday. It’s First Friday! Stroll up and down Broad Street to get acquainted with the works of local artists while enjoying free refreshments.

Saturday. This Saturday, you can go see films with out having to deal with the escalated movie theater prices. The public library will host the CharlestonGOOD Film Festival, showing a dozen short films that celebrate community and collaboration.

Sunday. Head to North Charleston for a fun party to start off your Sunday. Mixson is hosting a block party to celebrate its new Bath and Racquet Club, featuring ive music from local favorite The Royal Tinfoil. Later in the afternoon, learn a thing or two about natural gas with the film screening of Gasland at the public library. Geology and coastal environment experts Marie Rogers Stevens and Stephen Cofer-Shabica will be around after the screening to answer questions.
