Read the article thoughtfully. Whatever happened in the 90s was a foundation for the 00s. Is an article about the 90s punk scene an insult to the 80s? Of course not. This was a great article about people that shared a lot of good times in a tiny book store.
These were only National and International acts. There were several listed in the article.
No one is taking anything away from what you did. This was independent of you and your hardwork. You make it sound like the money, time and energy we put into it somehow discredits you, or isn't as noteworthy as what you did. I even specifically said there was an established scene in Charleston in the article before these shows started happening. From 2003 - 2005 there was not a comparable place in the Charleston area. Going to Summerville high when I started doing shows, I could count the people into hardcore on both my hands.
I'd be interested to check out your fliers and see what was before my time, but there isn't a link to your page.
I know I was just a cog on the long list of the Charleston music scene. There are a few facebook groups out there for those interested in the scene.
There is a page about Bopp Memorial Hall that was the equivalent of All Books for 2 - 3 Years before.
There is also a new group page on Facebook for most hardcore/metal shows in Charleston area if anyone is new or needs more information about it.
Yes, you have to move, and like you said you are a staple to our scene here. So STAY!
And wait we were booking national acts not local bands. I mean seriously this is an insult to the people who busted their asses for the link and hardcore scene in the 90s.
Haha, yep. Seasonal.
Kolsch or HopArt....
Ahhhh Sh*T!! You mean I have to move to Nashville!!
I'm sorry but this is bullshit. How about you scroll my Facebook page and take a long hard look at the flyers from the tons of shows we busted our ass to put on in the 90s. Basically every weekend of my life. How about you call those who know and get your history lesson.
Are you kidding me? Hi I'm Rachael Dantzler and you wrote this article based on what?
Thanks for the pick, Paul and the rest of the staff.
Did you know they have a craft brew, very hoppy, that is limited to two pints per customer? It's because of the high APV, and they don't want you to get a DUI. Nice guys, and great place. Both of them.
Brian, the staff pick said "Best Comedian Nashville stole from us" or something like that so I assume all of the comics were local and have moved to Nashville to be considered for this award?
unfortunately this beer isn't year round...
Awesome choice for Best Stylist
I do have a question Elizabeth. Do you ever watch any other comedians in the Low Country or just the one's downtown? Roland Jay Moore, Sean Jones, Dave Evans and myself started doing comedy (and we all live here BTW) here over 20 years ago. We all have performed here locally, everywhere from Mt. P., James Island, Downtown, Summerville, Goose Creek, West Ashley, North Charleston as well as all over The USA ( I performed for the troops in Japan last June) Jay is Princess Cruise Lines top comic, Sean has been seen in movies & TV, Dave not only performs but has had one of the biggest comedy competitions (Put your money where your mouth is) this area has ever seen. He had comics come from Fla., NC, Mrytle Beach, Ga. I just did a show at Ms. Rose's in November and they had to turn people away, I've got it on video!! I'm sorry, I don't want to sound bitter and I like Dusty, he has been a middle act for me several times (that means he opened up the show and I followed him) and I've judged several competitions he's been in and won, I voted for him. I just think it's lazy to just put his name out there again when guys such as the folks I mentioned have been making people laugh in the area for years get overlooked just because they're not in the right clique. I'll talk about this on my radio show and in my WEB series that shows what life is like being a road comic called "BTS On the Road" (24 episodes so far, shooting 25 later this month). How about we show support for ALL the great comedians in our area and not just the peninsula crowd or maybe they should distribute the City Paper only in the downtown area where they should be limited to getting they're sponsors from? As for me, I don't care, I live local, but I'm worldwide.
What a joke.
Best Tour Company Ever!
'All Books' was an absolute mind-blower, I couldn't believe the owners let it happen. I caught the very tail end of it, but the little dose I got opened up so much. Many friendships came from it and a most important moment hanging out with Andrew Barranca in the parking lot after a 'Puke Attack' performance and talking about making a film together.
Thanks to all involved!
Way to go Bulldog Tours!!
