SHAMAN: HEAVY
Rockin' for over a decade, local hardcore metal boys Shaman Mary headline a show at the Music Farm on Sat. June 10 with support from Delicious and La Horla. The Shamans cite such influences as KoRn, Metallica, and Machine Head, and describe their guitar-heavy sound as a "cross-hybrid of all influences" and "whatever else we want to be." Even after the recent departure of their bass player, Chris Dungan, the boys have not skipped a beat and have another bassist in the works. His talent is to be unveiled shortly.

RECORD STORES: ON THE MOVE II
Millennium Music co-owner/manager Kent Wagner announced plans for some major changes. "After seven great years in the Towne Centre [in Mt. Pleasant], Millennium has sold its lease back to the landlord and will be merging with the King Street location on June 20," read a recent press release. "The objective of the move is for Millennium to pool its resources under one roof at the King Street location to better focus on building the new 'Feed Your Player' concept. Millennium's King Street store will be phasing out books in June with a 30 percent sale for all books to free up the space to accommodate the used CDs and DVDs that have been amassed from the iPod trade as well as the relocated Mt. Pleasant inventory." Millennium also plans to relocate the King Street location in 2007 to a spot in "the greater Charleston area." See www.millenniummusic.com for the latest. —TBL

VENUES: CHANGES
After a few stumbles, the recently-opened Dark Room (in the former Bar 145 location at 145 Calhoun St. under The Terrace) has closed its doors for the summer. Just around the corner, Burns Alley Neighborhood Bar, recently opened its doors at 354 1/2 King St. in the old Palmetto's site (between Burns Lane and George St.). Expect to see live music, trivia, and other events throughout the week. The popular Folly Beach spot Café Suzanne has been transformed into The Terrapin Café and will continue to feature live blues, bluegrass, rock, and jazz on a weekly basis. Also on Folly, Planet Follywood (at 32-A Center St., 588-7380) celebrates a "grand re-opening" under new ownership this week with a new burger menu and live acoustic music from Dave Perry, Henry Glenn, Dan Clamp, and Ann Caldwell (see Music Board for more). —TBL
