Re: “We are the Super Fans

Any mention of big local music support should probably include WYLA FM 87.5, which plays almost entirely local music 24/7.

Re: “We are the Super Fans

Wow, an article about music in Charleston and not a single mention of the best venue in the Southeast, The Charleston Pour House? I don't think I've seen any one of these folks there except for Hunter when she was performing

No mention of the jam scene where we are being represented nationwide by Dangermuffin?

Quite an endorsement, Ima. I had no idea you were such a BNL fan.

Re: “In the Jukebox: The Mason Dixon Band

Also, great lead guitar riff by JR McLeod on the sample track "Do You Wanna" - hard to believe there is no mention of him in the review - obviously the author did not do any homework at all or failed to even listen to the CD.

Re: “Death Cab for Cutie's Ben Gibbard stormed off stage last night at Volvo Car Stadium

I was there, it was a great show, his voice was fine! There were some tech issues, it had rained and stormed, which delayed the show and everything was wet. When in Charleston in summer, wear a tank top or wifebeater - if you have on sleeves then you deserve to be hot! Also they make those sports towels that you wet and put around your neck to keep you cool...and I noticed a gigantic fan that was onstage but was not 'on' I didn't appreciate the temper-tantrum but I still loved the show

Too bad more people do not eventually realize it is too hot for them in Charleston then leave and never return here again...

I was at the concert last night and was very disappointed. What did they for an hour? Also the sound was horrible. You could barely hear him singing because the music especially the keyboards was so loud and distorted.

An awful lot of folks creating accounts just to admit they went to this awful show.

1) This happened pre-encore
2) He did acknowledge this incident, saying "sorry for the hasty exit."

As uncool as his little tantrum was, he DID acknowledge his "hasty exit" in his defense.

Re: “Death Cab for Cutie's Ben Gibbard stormed off stage last night at Volvo Car Stadium

I was there in the second row and did not see anyone throwing things at him. My husband noticed that Ben was having guitar issues during the song prior to this one. He was also completely drenched in sweat and had asked the crowd how we are able to deal with the weather in Charleston. So in my opinion he was upset about the tuning of his guitar and the humidity and threw more of a temper tantrum than I've ever witnessed from my one year old.

Re: “Death Cab for Cutie's Ben Gibbard stormed off stage last night at Volvo Car Stadium

First off.. this was the last song BEFORE the encore. He came back out with the band and played a few more songs after this. Also, I was in the front row. I can confirm that no one was throwing things at him. My friend has a cell phone video from our POV. He had complained earlier in the night about how hot it was.

Also, the song right before this, his guitar went out for half a second. I think there was either a loose cable somewhere or he was getting some nasty feedback in his earpiece. He just looked frustrated with his crew/equipment.

Also, Charleston is notorious for something? Huh. I thought unruly assholes were everywhere.

Where the hell was security?! This kind of behavior is unfortunately what Charleston has become notorious for, and among the reasons so many acts don't return...
