Dude you sound super bitter. You and Rachel from the "We were punk before Summerville was" thread should meet up for coffee.
Charleston, we will stomp into your town and take whoever the hell we want and make them one of our own because WE CAN. WHAT.
I'm sure every generation could chime in, like I'm doing... Humble Summervile? A Mecca? I'm not offended because the years stated were well after my time as an angry youth. I will bring up the Charlestowne Landing Shows as well as Club Dog Alley and Myskins. The reason Summerville developed a scene was because in the 90s more folks began moving there for cheap home prices and more land. This all lead to a new generation of pissed off kids with skateboards and a need to scream. It's the circle of life.
Just because an author is too young to remember the times before they were able to go out to a show doesn't make the, disrespectful, it makes them of a different generation.
And fyi, I wouldn't piss Rachel off...
This may be the worst attempt at PR I've ever witnessed.
They have written about me, you're missing the whole point, did you really read the post? Is this a knee jerk reaction without thinking about what I'm saying? Think before you post, look at the whole story. I could have sworn I mentioned several other comedians, let me look... ah yes, there they are, plain to see. What is it about truth that you don't like? KeepinItReal my ass!! Keepinitfalse more like it.
"I don't want to sound bitter...."
You totally sound bitter. Begging the City Paper to write about you isn't going to get them to write about you.
Is it weird that when I see CHARLESTONION I see Charles T. Onion? is it just me? Oh, wait. this article is about Dusty. I love him. I have a pan named after him. Dus T Pan..
This is not a fundraising event. While they do raise funds the folks at the Cooper River Bridge Run are a for profit entity. They solicit donations for charities along with registration fees but it is not a charitable event.
As a server that has been in the Food and Bev industry for multiple years I feel like I should enlighten you on what you have just posted. Over the past few years the laws have become stricter in regards to tip sharing and fair wage practices. Restaurants are not able to just hand over envelopes of cash to the servers from credit card sales. They are now requiring us to turn in those figures and they are now reporting those tips to the payroll company which In return we now have to pay taxes on. After the past few lawsuits involving local area restaurants my fellow servers and I are seeing our employers covering their own asses much to our dismay. I would say that whomever you are getting your info from is either sadly mistaken or very green to the current restaurant world. Perhaps instead of blasting a company on third hand knowledge you should have your source contact their company with their concerns.
Put on more makeup next time. No seriously. Neither of you looks enough like the self centered twats that you are.
Fook Yeah! 'DA Pub' is my favorite place to relax with a beer. Quite the eccelectic mix of folks.
This is an amazing article. I have so many great memories at All Books. I am honored to have been a part of it.
this is a page from the ladson homemakers club crew. MANY shows took place at this location in the 90's. along with other vfw's and other small stinky buildings in the area. if you were around during that time and involved in the "scene" in any way, then you would know how big it actually was and why this article is kind of a slap in the face to some of us who were doing this stuff 20 plus years ago.
Sensitive punks. Ha:/
the duck club is killer!! the rest of the menue is solid. the staff kicks much ass. one of my favorite hang out/ eat spots in charleston.
I read it again, and trying to be fair. The article wants to comment on the history of the S'ville punk scene, but even the title suggests that it didn't exist prior to the early 00s. The people you wrote about may have found punk in a big way in the early 2000s, and I don't mean to diminish that scene in any way. I wouldn't have a problem with the article if it were presented as strictly what it is: a commentary on S'ville punk during those years and at the places you mention. But it's insulting to suggest that this era you write about is the beginning of it all. Which is what you do.
The article makes it sound like Summerville had no scene at all and that's just not the case. No one has any negativity towards anything you did...there is just a much longer and quite vibrant past that is being overlooked.
Any of y'all are welcome to friend me on Facebook Rachael Renee Dantzler
The article suggests that a punk scene didn't exist in Summerville prior to the 00's. That is wrong. There was a pretty vibrant punk scene in Summerville in the 90s. You should talk to Rachael, for sure. She can tell you and show you. The Ladson Homemakers page has a lot about it, too. It was before the time of the people writing the article and the people quoted in it, so I guess it's understandable that you wouldn't know about it. But if the scene that you are writing about was built on it, then you should know about it.
