West Ashley music venue and watering hole The Tin Roof (1117 Magnolia Road, 843-571-0775) is gearing up for their second anniversary. The cozy venue not only established itself in West Ashley for its cool vibe, gourmet hot dogs and sandwiches, and tall cans of Pabst Blue Ribbon, it has gradually emerged as one of the best spots for underground rock, indie-pop, Americana, and experimental music in the Charleston scene.

The Roof bash is Thurs. Nov. 12 at 6 p.m. "We will probably have an earlier all-star local music collaboration on our porch," says manager Erin Tyler. "The party will be a blast, with Josh Roberts & The Hinges [from Columbia] playing inside. We are thinking a low cover and some free food, too." Stay tuned for more.
