Re: “Best Local Comedian that Nashville Stole From Us

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.

Re: “Best Fundraising Event

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.

Re: “Best Deli

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.

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.

Re: “How humble Summerville became a Mecca of punk, metal, and hardcore in the early '00s

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.

Re: “How humble Summerville became a Mecca of punk, metal, and hardcore in the early '00s

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.

Re: “How humble Summerville became a Mecca of punk, metal, and hardcore in the early '00s

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.

Re: “How humble Summerville became a Mecca of punk, metal, and hardcore in the early '00s

Rachael,

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.

Re: “How humble Summerville became a Mecca of punk, metal, and hardcore in the early '00s

Dear Rachael,

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.
https://www.facebook.com/groups/2457193422…

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.

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.
