To answer the above question about "Why are some youth pastors compelled to ......", I believe this youth pastor of whom I have great respect and appreciation for, saw that Justin Osborne has charisma and influence. His peers since youth have followed him on all sorts of adventures and wanted to be part of whatever "Justin" was promoting. It was evident to the youth pastor and evident to me. He can lead people in the right direction or lead them astray! With this God given gift/talent also comes great responsibility AND accountability! When Justin was in Junior Hi he had a T-shirt printed that said, "Hey, I live here and stuff". Sounds ridiculous but all of his friends went out and got shirts printed with that on it as well. He also started what was known as "The Hard Core Club" and had many members that met on a regular basis. So, the youth pastor was spot on. I can honestly see Jesus "chillin" on the beach with Justin or any of us and even drinking a beer....He did turn the water into wine. The song is catchy and fun. I even catch myself singing it. BUT, to see the actors in the scene under the tent pretending to be filled with the Holy Spirit bothered me. It still grieves me greatly. "God will not be mocked". Justin will have to answer for this one day and will be held to a higher accountability because he did accept Christ as his Lord and Savior. He DOES know the bible.... He and I were baptized together at the YMCA pool.This was a step that HE wanted to take and was in NO way forced. So he knows TRUTH and he could be an unstoppable force for good and spread the gospel of hope, love, forgiveness and mercy and ever-lasting life to so many that are searching for answers in a world that is out of control. Jesus is everywhere. Christians live all over the world. Southerners don't have a patent on Christianity. P.S. Don't be mad at me Justin! I'm just exercising my right to FREE speech just like you do with your music that I don't always agree with. I will always love you forever, no matter what! I'm still praying and believing that the desires of your heart will change and that you will have a "Road to Damascus" experience just like the apostle Paul had and that all of this running from God and living like the devil will one day be part of your extraordinary testimony that you will be singing about to audiences and friends everywhere.
It's always good to see a young artist come into their own. If it wasn't a bold outpouring from the depths, there would have been no apprehension. Why are some youth pastors compelled to launch random thoughts as if it were prophesy . . . unrealistic self-image?
Personally, I don't think the Lord has a problem with smart people thinking. Don't worry, Justin Osbourne, if Jesus doesn't give you a heart emoji for your effort, he will forgive you.
Get. Double. Bent.
This article is hilarious because it inadvertently exposes EXACTLY what is wrong with the "Charleston Music Scene": Popularity should not be a driving force for creativity.
Dang..i never read about what happened. Casey it's Chad...hit me up!
Don't argue with someone born in the 90's who paid $5 to get into house shows in the 70's.
Not a fan of internet beef. We'll settle it in a pit somewhere.
Just put on the shows you want too and be damned what the music scene is.
It makes no difference what the majority of people want to hear. If your waiting for them you will be waiting forever. You can have the music you want with out any support. Just do it.
"If you want punk to get bigger, which I obviously do, then you have to have a bigger music scene in general."
Sorry that logic is gonna get you no where.
We didn't get the likes of The Circle Jerks,The Dead Kennedys,Christ on a Crutch
RKL, GG Allin, Mykel Board or some others, i'm sure my memory fails me , back in the day, cause there was ever a vibrant scene to rail against. We could care less we just wanted to hear what we liked.
Local Americana from Johns Island...
And can't forget Ohm Radio 96.3
"Any mention of big local music support should probably include WYLA FM 87.5, which plays almost entirely local music 24/7."
Who the fuck is voting this comment down?

Wow, an article about music in Charleston and not a single mention of the best venue in the Southeast, The Charleston Pour House? I don't think I've seen any one of these folks there except for Hunter when she was performing
No mention of the jam scene where we are being represented nationwide by Dangermuffin?
I like anything that is cleverly written.
Quite an endorsement, Ima. I had no idea you were such a BNL fan.
a third-grader interviewing Monty Python
Where's my goddamn dubstep fan?
Also, great lead guitar riff by JR McLeod on the sample track "Do You Wanna" - hard to believe there is no mention of him in the review - obviously the author did not do any homework at all or failed to even listen to the CD.
I was there, it was a great show, his voice was fine! There were some tech issues, it had rained and stormed, which delayed the show and everything was wet. When in Charleston in summer, wear a tank top or wifebeater - if you have on sleeves then you deserve to be hot! Also they make those sports towels that you wet and put around your neck to keep you cool...and I noticed a gigantic fan that was onstage but was not 'on' I didn't appreciate the temper-tantrum but I still loved the show
Too bad more people do not eventually realize it is too hot for them in Charleston then leave and never return here again...
