Nice facility, tape can be the greatest depending on the music. I mean you waste your time with hip hop, but jazz, blues, swing, love analog. kudos guys! I'm finishing my own studio in upstate NY. I'll be down in February and would like to see the facility, Last work I did in the south was at SESAC In Nashville years ago!

You're fantastic, Kelly Rae.
You missed the part about Benji Lee though...
Nice article, but to say REM was the first band from the south to make it nationally since the Allman Brothers, is quite a bit off. Right behind the Allmans came the Marshall Tucker Band, Lynyrd Skynyrd and many other lesser southern rock bands, that did quite well nationally before REM came along. As far as I am concerned, Marshall Tucker is still the greatest band ever from South Carolina.
Great story, Kelly. Can't wait 'til NYE! And hey there, Fran!
Awesome story, Kelly!! Can't believe it's been 10 years. Hope you're doing well, too!
Is the band's name a reference to the Pinkerton Security company?
Hey we got a dislike. Awesome!
I love the poster juxtaposed with the message of the article and the implications of the music. Getting shitfaced with a bottle of liquor, which will lead to unpredictable, destructive behavior and blacking out is socially acceptable and legal, whereas if I wanted to actually do acid at this show I would be a criminal. Yay freedom!
Bogan is a great Aussie slang word. This guy would have an awesome trip there showing people his ID. "Maaaate, look at this! This bloke's name is actually BOGAN!"
Great read, great people...
Hi. Music is music.
God when will rap go away!
I simply can NOT make out the words when Dave Matthews sings!
Let me count the strikes against this fucking B0RNS kid.
Major label act playing at "indie"? check
Called "eclectic"? check
Come on, people. This shit is only eclectic if you hate Taylor Swift. If you have a VEVO youtube channel, you aren't fucking eclectic.
You're the fucking mainstream.
Your so-called dissent was comodified before this kid was born.
"...BØRNS draws influence from old-school artists — from the Velvet Underground and the Beach Boys to the Zombies and Al Green..."
So. Fucking. What.
Mainstream/major label acts. Every one. Including the Velvets who, at this point, count as a mainstream artist. They've been co-opted by so many useless bands at this point that they might as well be The Fucking Doors.
"...he started out his musical journey with parody songs inspired by Weird Al."
Tent City Twins ripping shit up
"keep that position cuz I'll be right back"
good stuff zee
Nice job Zee. Showing a little of the other side of the Chuck. Keep it up.

I wrote mine under a bridge in tent city USA Charleston South Carolina.
As a vinyl enthusiast (who is from Charleston, but doesn't currently live there), I fully support this new shop and hope it flourishes and has a nice long life with full community support. I plan to spend much money there next time I'm home.
However, since this article doesn't at all acknowledge the challenge Charleston has had in keeping a solid record store open (I guess you can count Monster, but that isn't downtown) in the past decade, I'm just curious if Aaron Levy considered the fate of 52.5 (which was an incredible record store) and even Earshot (also a solid store) when opening his shop. Granted, 52.5 closed before the vinyl wave really began peaking and records started showing up at Urban or wherever, but I'm just curious if the market now is that much different. Or, is the rent in that area of King St. just that much less daunting?
It's interesting, I recall a time in the early 90s when the only record store Charleston really had was Prism on Rivers and two CD shops on King Street.
Regardless, I wish this store well, and I can't wait to shop there.
