Drummer, writer, shuffler, heck-raiser.
Full of coffee and syncopation.
Beware: if you order something to-go from the menu online, you might get something very different than expected. I ordered the "Grilled Shrimp & Four-Bean Salad" (supposedly with fresh beans, red onion, peppers and a light vinaigrette). Back in the office, what I got was a mixed field green salad with apple, avocado, cheery tomatoes, and a big handful of crumbled bleu cheese scattered on top (I can't stand bleu cheese). I called to see what the mix-up might have been: "Oh, that's the way we do the grilled shrimp salad now." So the online menu is incorrect. Beware.
Tompkins never "ragged on his wife" during the show at Theatre 99, either. In fact, she came off very much as the good guy to his bad guy in most of his stories. Tompkins poked a lot of fun at this story's headline in his the first few moments of his set, though!
Phillip — the City Paper did follow much of the live music, art, special events, and benefit shows that happened at Jimbo's over the last two years. Many Eyeball Art shows were listed along the way, and the paper even ran a full feature on you and the series in 2010:
Nast777 — It may seem like some of the underground and major label metal/hardcore acts who tour through town never get much coverage, but many of them do. Over the last two years, the City Paper featured numerous metal events at Jimbo's, including Black Tusk, Iron Cherry, ANTiSEEN, Children’s Choir, Soulfly , the Slaying for a Kidney benefit (for 98 Rock’s Ron House), the Dixie Metal And Hardcore Fest, the three-day Kloverfest benefit, etc.
Thanks to a lack of communication, covering Jimbo's this year became increasingly difficult and frustrating. Despite repeated requests for calendar updates and club news, the City Paper rarely heard from Webb or anyone from the club. The last time he music department received a live music calendar from Jimbo's was last November. Not a word over the last six months. Not much online, either. If a club neglects to do even the most basic promotion, coverage inevitably goes down.
Re: "I know of no journalistic standard that says that is OK to simply make something up because it helps prove a point..." — Tell that to the clowns at the cable news networks.
Great snapshot, Robert!
Admission for each event ranges between $5 and $15 — the SKZZBXX show will be $7 advance and at the gate. Check out www.charlestonpartyatthepoint.com for more.
