The Charm of the Conde Nast award winning City of Charleston is not just found in the amazing Restaurants, the Sidewalk Shops & or the Cobblestones of Super Nintendo Chalmers Street but in the lively hood the numerous events held throughout the year. It's these events, these really amazing events, that let the good but somewhat eccentric people of Charleston express themselves. Spoleto & Picolo Spoleto and the Wildlife Expo are not the only ongoings in Charleston. If you look carefully you will find something going on almost every day of every week. From Farmers Markets to Art walks to fundraisers to Concerts. And the music, Wow! Their are so many talented musicians that have flocked to Charleston. Skinful Halloween has become an institution in this town. Out of everything that goes on and I mean everything. This party IS the most fun I have all year. Hands down. (what ever that means) If the city really wants to keep getting voted #1 it needs to see this party as an opportunity and get behind it. Help Dr. King & Bighair find a place for this event, cut all the red tape and make a positive experience for everyone. Hands down (still don't know why they say that)

Tift was a true professional. I was blown away by the show and didn't mind the 45 minute drive out to the Windjammer. I also didn't feel that there was a bad vibe with the crowd, sure there were the regular drunks at the bar, but aren't they always there. Your right about a venue change, I think there are more venue's where folks truly go to listen to the music.
I can't decide if I like "real monster", "tyranny" or "outlaws plan" the best. The whole album sounds awesome, but which song would be the single? This is some great song writing, I can tell that these songs have a deeper meaning than just the typical rhyming a few words then putting down a catchy hook.
Great idea giving away the album for free with the City Paper's help. Show's that ya'll are true to the music. Crazy that a band named Dangermuffin could one day be a household name. I cannot wait for Friday night's show at the Pourhouse. Keep up the good work guys and thanks for the free music.
Where was the category for best emerging local band? There is a bunch of stuff happing musically and there are a couple of bands about to really break the scene. Dangermuffin, Sol Driven Train, Leslie, just to name a few. Also, Band Of Horses, moves to town, blow's up, sell's out the Music Farm twice in about a months span & doesn't get mentioned as the best band in Charleston. Those guys are going to be playing stadiums soon.
I will say this, even though we lost 2 good music venue's last year (Bert's Bar & Cumberland's), the music scene in Charleston is on the rise. Thank you Music Farm, Pourhouse, HometeamBBQ & The CharlestonCrystalBall.com
What's not on the rise is the radio station scene. WTF was APEX thinking. I took 96.1 off of my programmed channels in my car. 105.5 has the ability to be a good station, but there to busy trying to find and identity and are confusing there listeners. You can't follow Paul Simon with Greenday. Take some chance's 105.5, play some local music. Educate the your listeners. Don't be reactive, but be proactive. If you play music that is good people will listen to your station.
There is some good stuff out there radio wise, but it's on the Internet. Bunky Odom's RadioFreeCharleston.com is starting to come around. You should all know who Bunky is, he has been featured in City Paper on several occasions. If you remember, he used to be the manager of the Allman Brothers, Marshall Tucker & Doctor John. If anybody know's good music it's that guy.
Charleston is musically in touch with it's choice for best female artist. Cary Ann, we expect big thing's from you this year. The new album is great & we would love to see you touring this year. I enjoyed your cameo on Anthony Bourdain's show when they came through Charleston.
