Re: “Håkon Kornstad plays complex one-man jazz — with fits of opera

If it's not already, certainly this has the makings of a sound track for an indie film. Very unusual but very pleasant music.

Re: “René Marie is wickedly good

Odd but I don't think I've seen it mentioned anywhere (in relation to the Rene Marie album of Eartha Kitt material) that Kitt was from North, SC. Seems like this would be of local interest. I think of EK every time I drive through North (a village) on my way to Upstate gigs. Why not a sign at the town limits, methinks, like "Welcome to North - the Home of Eartha Kitt"?

Re: “Gwilym Simcock, more like Simrock

"I’ve heard a few piano players in my day. Sure the majority of them were playing at large departments stores..."
This, perhaps, is why you should not be reviewing music for Spoleto.
A+ should be reserved for exceptional performances as should standing ovations.
Gwilym is a great player but, a terrible performer. He would certainly earn an A+ playing in a department store.

Re: “Columbia City Ballet keep the comedy in their A Midsummer Night's Dream

Why would you post that Columbia City Ballet is here to fill a void. Charleston has its own Professional Ballet Company with Dancers that are far better than what they have in Columbia. Go look for yourself.
Look at the Piccolo Spoleto line up. Charleston's very own company will be presenting a World Premier for Piccolo Spoleto. FIREBIRD. The Charleston City Ballet will be at the Music Hall June 3 and 4.

Thank you for a lovely story, Leah. Just a slight correction, Paul O'Brien is an oncologist.

Re: “Shepard Fairey explores empire and the American dream this Spoleto season

hahahah ... yeah w/e works. That's not my point at all...really.
Just more curious about the mindset. Has he done things i just don't know about. That's a reporter's job, right? Could be in the cover story?
Someone who grew up here, loves skating, supposedly grew up in the local punk scene, still has lots of friends here, ...and also happens to be a very rich man.

He can do what he wants with his money.

All together now, let's try to shame Fairey into giving to artrogue's favorite pastime.

Re: “Shepard Fairey explores empire and the American dream this Spoleto season

Your a better person than me, Carlos.
With all the love Shepard gets from his hometown, i'm a little curious how much he has given back?
Apparently he is worth ,in excess,of 15 million. That is great. An American success story. Although, with someone of such high liberal standards, seems he would have seen fit to improve some areas of his hometown. He does contribute to charitable organizations worldwide.
I'd like to see an article about his charitable contributions to the local area.
He knows what it was like to skate here when there were very few spots and
backyard ramps, has he touched base with CCPR to see if he could help get our park done? Even just contribute somehow. Maybe he has. I don't know, but sure seems like a surefire way he could help the area where he grew up.

With his paint it black poster...is all his work done with eco green friendly paints and inks? just curious.

Re: “Spoleto 2014 aims for the simple sweet spot

You should do an article about Spoleto ushers. I left the Dock Street tonite thinking "durn, we are so old!" This 300-member volunteer corps has an average age of about 50, but there's not even a waiting list to get on as an usher. Our death rate is not high enough.
Spoleto was brilliant to decide decades ago to use volunteers instead of hiring. The team of ushers are sophisticated people who have been to more events than most of our patrons, and we love the work.

Re: “Shepard Fairey explores empire and the American dream this Spoleto season

The cover shot aside, I want to walk back my first comment. I'm glad Shepard made it. Everyone that got out of their garage sold out. People that scream sell out are LOSERS.

Some of my memories of him might be a little negative, but I was no saint either. Good for him.

Re: “Shepard Fairey explores empire and the American dream this Spoleto season

Nice hero shot on the cover. Pretty much defines the term, poseur.

This guy. I know him, and of him, from way back. I'll hold my tongue.
