"Few bands have a sound as confounding as Holy Ghost Tent Revival."
I think I need to make you a mixtape or something.
This band is fantastic
Should have asked about the round robin show he did with Toro y moi back in the day behind Andolini's on Wentworth or his old project Art Lord & The Self Projects who played in Summerville way back when.....
One of the best men I've ever met and a great musician as well...Happy to play his music on 92.1 The Palm...rockdoc
The real impact that the Dirty Dozen had on Brass bands was their recordings. There were very few recordings of Brass Bands before the Dirty Dozen and those were poorly recorded in the streets.
hahah purple !!
I'll be behind all the kids :)
Artrogue I will be here tonight. I'll be wearing purple and I will be highly intoxicated. Have 2 friends in town from NYC LES who are huge fans who will also be attending. These guys played the Lower East Side so many times when I was up there full time, they were like everybodys favorite house band and packed them in every time they played. They always put on a helluva show. Wristcutters y'all!!
The most fun your gonna have at the Music Farm in a long time! Music and an experience that just doesn't come to our town very much.
With the glut of "americana" and whatever other crap passes for original music these days... They are a breath of fresh air.
Maybe they will even come back later this year when they r on the road with Flogging Molly.
Gary Erwin brought the greats to Chucktown. Koko Taylor. Pinetop Perkins. Thanks for all you do for the blues in this city.
It was a pleasure! Thanks, and safe travels this spring - KRS
Thanks very much to Kelly Rae for a well-written article and the editors for running it.
Thank you for putting together this article on the Dillamental project, K.J.! I enjoyed our phone conversation last week. We're excited about performing Dilla's music on the Pour House stage tomorrow night to commemorate his life and legacy. If anyone knows any hip hop heads in Raleigh, NC, we'll be playing this same show at King's on Martin St. downtown on Friday night. Advance tickets for both shows are only $5 and will be $10 the day of. See you there!
Alex Rosen is as full of shit as a Christmas turkey.
Unleash the Space Chicken!!!!
The best local band in charleston, some say with works inspired by the devil.
Chris, thanks for the shows, the rad vinyl and all the hard work you and the crew put in. Sorry for acting like a total freak at times at some shows but the sound fills my soul, takes me to another place and I can't help it sometimes. Please keep it up for years to come.
The recordings linked are from the 2012 record 'knee deep in dirt'
I saw Uncle Mingo several times in a field in Red Top, SC when I was a high school student at Wando ~1990. Red Top is, I think, somewhere along Hwy 17S. I couldn't find it now but I sure knew where it was then.
They had a hearse as their band vehicle. A generator powered their equipment.
How did anyone know these things were on? No website to check, no Facebook page to update, no mobile phones to send around texts or group chats, no physical location to read the schedule on a board. I guess someone got hold of a printed flyer or something, maybe a mailing list. If you lost your friends out there, you might not see them again for the rest of the night (but you could go pass out on their car hood so they wouldn't leave without you).
Old school partying.
