Re: “Music Farm

I really like the Music Farm. I read one comment about the sound being bad. I totally disagree. I usually try to get to the front of the stage for photography but the last 2 shows I went to at the Farm I was behind the bar. The sound was loud enough, and was very clear, could understand all the vocals. I moved to Charleston from Milwaukee 2 years ago and occasionally went to a cub of equal size in Milwaukee called The Rave. The sound there was absolutely terrible. For a club the size of the Music Farm I give the club an "A" for the sound. The list of bands playing the Farm is very diverse. I have seen the New York Dolls, Unknown Hinson, Drivin' n' Cryin', Drive-By Truckers, and Grace Potter and the Nocturnals - all excellent shows.

Re: “Grace Potter was slick and sleek

Great to see a fantastic female singer/songwriter/musician front a great rock band. So tired of all the weak pop stuff with canned backup music that is so common today.

Re: “The New York Dolls' Sylvain Sylvain digs him some Alfalfa

To willywoody, Black Joe Lewis sounds good, but to compare new R&B/soul to proto punk/glam icons David Johansen and Syl Sylvain is funny. Totally different music. I am a longtime fan, lived in Milwaukee all my life and saw Johansen in '82 (he jumped off the stage and I supported him above the crowd), Thunders in '86 and '89 (2 other shows I was going to got cancelled), and Sylvain in 2003(?). Syl is great guy, talked with him after the show and he autographed my CD's. I am living in Charleston now and we are very fortunate to have this show. Many hardcore fans scoff at the new Dolls, but the new CD "'Cause I Sez So" is great. If you get away from comparing the old band vs. new, you will see the music is great. I really like the reggae version of "Trash".
