"In regards to the various slang words used to describe this event by local media outlets (non-inclusive of the Charleston City Paper), the “dance music” genre, (NOT rave)"
Like I said, it wasn't a rave. I didn't even need to attend to know that. I am pretty sure anyone calling this event a rave has never actually been to one. This was just a big party for people that like electronic music. Like a more general audience version of the EMF.
IN RESPONSE TO ALL RECENT PRESS CONCERNING HARBOR CITY FEST (ON 4/11/13):
Regardless of a record turnout and no major incidents this past Thursday, we completely understand the frustration stemming from all private residences on and around the Patriot’s Point peninsula. Despite several public notices sent out well in advance informing the community at large on all assumed expectations up until the 11pm city noise ordinance, the abundance of noise disturbance created is something we never desire to create nor allow to become a problematic issue with the special events and concerts we produce. The recently created venue used for Harbor City Fest, (nicknamed “The Grove”), was specifically chosen for its natural sound barrier so to generate acoustic baffling that would thwart a majority of all potential noise refraction across surrounding neighborhoods. Unfortunately, this strategy did not work nearly as well as our team anticipated, however, in the future, we will do whatever is necessary to prevent such noise-related concerns from reoccurring. We hold a top priority in remaining respectful of our neighbors, and we value the relationships we’ve built in the local community far too much to jeopardize our reputation and continued business. Regardless of the aforementioned concerns, such related events have helped generate large revenue streams, (inclusive of cross state travel attendance), as well as ample new temp job creation for the Charleston community over the past several years. In regards to the various slang words used to describe this event by local media outlets (non-inclusive of the Charleston City Paper), the “dance music” genre, (NOT rave), is an increasingly popular mainstream trend the young generation is grasping towards and has recently expanded to become the single largest ticket grossing music genre in the world. Hence, we constantly strive to produce concerts and music events that meet the highest level appeal for our target demographics. Finally, we hope all those who attended (or are familiar with the event) understand our position, and we look forward to hosting many more safe, enjoyable and noise-friendly music events in the near future.
I'm confused. Patriot's Point borders a golf course on one side and Charleston Harbor on the other (though there is a hotel and the "Cottages on the Harbor" inside). What neighborhoods? The nearest houses in Bayview must be miles away...?
This was no rave. If it were, there would not have been public advertisements.
music farm needs to get a whif of the spotify blaze
Alswel will be performing as well (late addition to the lineup)..
Top 40 is still a thing?
Complete and utterly bullshit, it ended at 11. Isn't that close to sound curfew? Aren't we allowed to me as loud as we want till then? It's a venue spot, people who move close to venue spots should expect this and weigh this in their options when they choose to live nearby. James island residents have issues with people using the park for music events as well. Where the hell are we suppose to hold an outside event since suburbia is everywhere? Maybe the rivers oh stadium, but then the there's homes nearby as well. And obviously there is a crowd/ demand here in chs for this genre of music, someone would be smart to open a club. All the clubs/ bars here play the same damn music (top 40) and all it draws is a young crowd that dry humps the shit outta each other, causes fights, throw up everywhere, and these people look for specials and don't tip worth a shit specially for the amount crap the bar has to tolerate.
"raves" - that is all.
Regardless of public opinion EDM is a cash cow and cash rules the world, they'll find a new place to house these shows but it's a shame that a cut of that $$$ won't be going to the honorable institution that is Patriots Point
As soon as someone tells me they enjoy a radio morning show I know we have nothing in common and will never have a meaningful relationship of any kind.
I still don't know if I'm going to this.
i love "don't let's start", among others. cool band, nice article paul.
Ditto! One of the best shows you could see in town!
Look out for the COFFIN SYRUP music video for "THE UNIQUE MAGIC OF RIGOR MORTIS" filmed by Greg "Chainsaw" Crawford This summer and keep your metal sick !!!
Wonder how they're made? Well, this video won't help!
Hell yeah Battlecock
Don't forget BattleCocks influence on UMoR
Charles Bradley is THE man. Everyone in Charleston should go to this as he will surely be playing venues like the Charleston Music Hall or bigger on his next tour. He's playing the Apollo Theater on this tour. Catch him while you can Charleston, catch him while you can.....
one-part Counting Crows plus one-part Dave Matthews = _ _ _ _?
