ALBANY, N.Y., July 27 /PRNewswire/ — TWEC.COM (http://www.twec.com), the
e-commerce site of leading entertainment products retailer Trans World
Entertainment Corporation (Nasdaq: TWMC), today announced its exciting lineup
of events for the week of 7/31. The Web’s Entertainment Center will host live
chats with Dead Prez, Mac McAnally, Chris LeDoux, Clay Davidson, Charlie

series continues when TWEC.COM broadcasts a taped audio concert starring Angry
Salad. Details for each event are as follows:

MONDAY 7/31

  • The RadioWoodstock On Stage series continues this week with a broadcast
    of an audio concert starring Angry Salad. The Rhode Island-based
    pop/rock band gained a large and devoted following through their
    extensive touring and 1995 independent debut album, “The Guinea Pig.”
    The concert with Angry Salad airs at the following times: Monday 7/31 at
    4:00 PM EDT, Wednesday 8/2 at 11:00 AM EDT, Saturday 8/5 at 3:00 AM EDT
    and Sunday 8/6 at 7:00 PM EDT.

  • At 9:00 PM EDT, join TWEC.COM, in conjunction with SOHH.com, for the
    2000 Sizzlin’ Summer live chat series. The series will continue on
    Monday with two live events, starting with a live chat with Sticman and
    M-1, two talented young rappers who make up the duo Dead Prez. Sticman
    and M-1 have created a unique style of hip-hop with their political and
    social commentaries, expressed through their work with artists including
    the late Big Pun. Dead Prez released their debut solo album, “Let’s Get
    Free,” earlier this year.

TUESDAY 8/1

  • At 8:00 PM EDT, log on to TWEC.COM for a live chat with Mac McAnally.
    McAnally has written songs for such artists as Jimmy Buffett, Alabama
    and Steve Wariner. He released his solo debut album in 1977 after
    impressing producers Terry Woodford and Clayton Ivey with his vocal
    stylings. His most recent solo album, “Word of Mouth,” was released
    last summer.

  • Following the chat with Mac McAnally, join TWEC.COM for a live chat with
    country star Chris LeDoux. After performing for years as a champion
    rodeo rider, LeDoux left the rodeo scene in 1980 to focus on a music
    career. In 20 years, he recorded 22 albums on independent labels and
    garnered a very large and loyal following. His latest album, “Cowboy,”
    is set for release on 8/1, and contains re-recorded versions of some of
    LeDoux’s older hits.

WEDNESDAY 8/2

  • At 8:00 PM EDT, join TWEC.COM for a live chat with up-and-coming country
    crooner Clay Davidson. Davidson’s debut album was released in February
    2000, and was described by Entertainment Weekly as “a tender-tough
    charmer.” Seven of the eleven songs on the album were written by
    Davidson himself, and show touches of influence from such artists as
    Merle Haggard, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Don Williams and Elvis Presley.

  • At 9:00 PM EDT, stick around for a live chat with legendary performer
    Charlie Daniels. Daniels and his band combine hardcore country music
    with southern rock and blues, creating a unique sound that has appealed
    to both critics and fans over the years because of their creativity with
    music as well as for their good ol’ country boy attitude. The Charlie
    Daniels Band’s latest album, “Road Dogs,” was released this spring.

THURSDAY 8/3

  • At 7:00 PM EDT, TWEC.COM is hosting a live chat with Taproot. Taproot
    combines heavy metal, hard rock and rap into a blend commonly known as
    rap-core. Finding their niche in the underground music scene in Ann
    Arbor and Detroit (MI), Taproot produced and released their full-length
    debut, ” … Something More Than Nothing … ” completely on their own
    in the spring of 1998, and sold over 6,000 copies. Their major-label
    debut album, “Gift,” was released at the end of June 2000.

  • At 9:00 PM EDT, chat live with Nine Days. Nine Days was formed in the
    mid-90s with one goal in mind: write great songs. Combining 80s rock
    with a depth of lyrics comparable to songwriters including Bob Dylan,
    Bruce Springsteen and Neil Young, the band has created a sound of their
    own. Nine Days’ debut album, “The Maddening Crowd,” was released in May
    2000.
