Rap is amazing, probably the best music ever made. Aesop Rock makes Bach and Beethoven look like Milli Vanilli
If you can't afford to pay a $10 cover to see a live band, then go to a bar that has a jukebox and stuff dollar bills into all night. You can then listen to all your favorite songs without paying a cover.
I love Matt's thoughtful, intelligent commentary on DITD not to mention his awesome musical taste. Great musician, great DJ!
I've also recorded with Todd Brown back in the mid-00s and love the recordings to this day. He's good people... his whole family were terrific to us.
Cheers to this staple of Charleston music. We are spoiled rotten with this man behind the mixing board!
Mike Grimm has worked as a sound engineer at the Tin Roof for a decade and covers at two of the other venues in the article...yet gets a mere two sentences. Man, that's rough.

My band has recorded with Todd Brown. He was awesome. Hard to find an engineer that takes the time to feel a band out. I cant wait to record with him again.

I am so proud of you two. Thank you for your love and generosity to Mother Earth and all of the water protectors. Go through life with love.
So well deserved. Bravo youngblood.
"What I miss is just the pre-internet age, where things were just a little harder to find so you had to be really dedicated to things," he says.
Well I've been trying to figure out the COMPLETE lyrics for Semper Fidelis since the album came out. Internet or not, it ain't happenin'. Still love it, though.
Dandy Warhols. Cause I like them, yeah I like them and I'm feeling so Bohemian like them. Woo hoo hoo.
@randall floyd...do a show on WYLA ;)
"why does Charleston not have an oldies station? Seems weird not to play the greatest music ever made."
There are oldies stations. They're on the AM frequency. Talk radio. Perfect for people living in the past.
Thanks Kelly Rae! Listeners (and prospective hosts/content producers) can contact the station at WYLA@ccpl.org or 843-805-6842.

This is getting exhausting. Read this article in its context, people. The Royal American is an awesome local venue. But ... THIS IS A STUDENT GUIDE. A short one at that, because we're not a blog with unlimited space - we're a costly print publication. And while Royal is great, they have no all-ages shows. And while the Music Hall is also one of my faves, underagers are more likely to be drawn to dives. This was written by a college student for college students, listing "some" not "all" venues. Anyone who thinks we don't support the Royal American and a ton of other great venues doesn't read our paper anyway. We recommend shows everywhere every single week. And yes we could have done nothing but list downtown venues, but then we'd do a disservice to places like the Hive that do all-ages shows all the time and are huge supporters of the underground, underage scene. If you're not a cheap dive bar that does all-ages shows, you should not expect to see yourself in a student guide.
It seems like this is an article aimed at incoming CofC freshmen, mostly <21. The Royal American as far as I know is 21+, as are most of the bar venues in the city. Still, JWB's comment is gold.
I will say, though, that the advice to just talk to musicians is solid. I've been in a lot of bands and it feels good to connect to people, and musicians connect with other musicians so you'll get good intel on bands you haven't otherwise heard of.
Charleston Music Hall does a few music things.
