If you wannabe feelin’ kinda old, think about this: “Wannabe,” arguably the best song ever to sing windows down on the road, came out more than two decades ago. Still obsessed with Sporty, Scary, Baby, Ginger, and Posh? Yeah, us too, and, apparently, so is Charleston Music Hall executive director Charles Carmody.
Carmody “vividly remembers sitting in the back of his parents’ Ford Explorer listening to the Spice Girls on his Discman and screaming out the lyrics at the top of his wee little lungs at age 9. He was promptly told to shut it, but those catchy lyrics would live on in his mind for years to come.”
Now, Charlestonians and Carmody can come together to celebrate the ’90s pop phenomenon at the Music Hall with a special anniversary screening of Spice World
on Sun. Oct. 15.
The film has it all: an encounter with extraterrestrials, a night in a haunted castle, run-ins with London tabloids and a Hollywood pitch team, and, through it all, some major girl power.
Catch the flick starting at 7 p.m., with the Music Hall bar opening at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are only $8, and everyone is encouraged to dress as their fave Spice Girl; all those who dress up receive a commemorative poster, and the best-dressed is promised some “spicy prizes.” Hold on to your knickers!
