THE RAVENEL’S PEDESTRIAN PATH IS JUST ONE EXAMPLE OF MULTI-USE PLANNING SCDOT IS HOPING TO SEE WITH COMPLETE STREETS

Road Work Ahead
New ‘Complete Streets’ program aims to improve SC transit alternatives BY SKYLER BALDWIN
The Complete Streets policy requires SCDOT to work with regional transportation planning partners and transit providers to include walking, bicycling and transit needs, like pedestrian walkways and bike paths, as part of regional visioning plans. Those plans will, in turn, be tailored to the unique needs of each area and serve as a foundation for highway planning and design, construction, maintenance and daily operations. “SCDOT has had some form of a Complete Streets policy on their books for a long time,” said Jason Crowley, communities and transportation director for the Coastal Conservation League (CCL). “It’s always just been a little CROWLEY vague on how to implement it and when.” The CCL is part of the South Carolina
Alliance for Livable Communities, a broad coalition of nonprofit and advocacy organizations as well as civic leaders. Crowley said the leadership and focus of the coalition pushed for the DOT adoption. As the Charleston area’s regional planning agency, the Berkeley-Charleston-Dorchester Council of Governments (BCDCOG) will be the primary contact for SCDOT. “Safety, connectivity and equitable access are core themes in all of BCDCOG’s multimodal mobility work, whether that be bike-ped, transit-related or commuter services-centric,” said BCDCOG Regional Strategist Daniel Brock. “SCDOT’s introduction of a statewide Complete Streets policy is not only applaudable and congruent with ongoing efforts, it’s also a key tool that will literally save lives and reduce injuries, both in our region and beyond.” But, it will take more than large-scale organizations’ participation to get the ball rolling. “The BCDCOG has had many of the plans in place already that this policy is looking
at as a model,” Crowley said. “But, smaller counties and COGs are going to take longer to get to that same level of planning. So, there will be a period of time when South Carolinians will need to work with local communities to get these plans in place.” The adoption of the policy puts the responsibility of sensible road design on local governments, like municipal planning boards and BCDCOG, which also functions as the area’s metropolitan planning organization (MPO), overseeing regional transportation planning. If there is an MPO that has any sort of bicycle or pedestrian plans in place, or needs to create plans as they go through the process, then any state road project that comes later must follow those plans. “It has to be considered from the very beginning,” Crowley said. “When the Ravenel Bridge was designed, for example … right before it went out for permitting, there was public outcry for bicycle and pedestrian access to it, and the Wonders’ Way was sort of slapped onto it. “If this plan had been in place then, a multi-use path would have been part of the design process from the start,” he said. Some such construction projects in Charleston are already in the pipeline. One such project is the connectivity work, spearheaded by the city of Charleston, along

rigade Street from the future Lowcountry Lowline to Huguenin Avenue. “The goal of the policy is to make our highway system safe and accessible to all users; drivers, passengers, bicyclists, pedestrians and transit riders,” State Secretary of Transportation Christy Hall said in a press release. “Proper planning is key to ensuring that the appropriate level of multimodal accommodations is provided in the right context, on the right project and in the right manner to meet the needs of the community.” Funding for accommodations listed in the policy is to be included in the budget for each project, if warranted, in accordance with regional plans. SCDOT will be updating and modernizing its design manuals to include multimodal accommodations and establish a council to facilitate ongoing communication to seek further improvement.

With high fatality rates for pedestrians and cyclists along South Carolina roads, there’s been a growing cry for the state Department of Transportation (SCDOT) to step in. Earlier this month, the department answered, adopting a wide-ranging “Complete Streets” policy for state-owned roadways.

RIVERDOGS OPEN 2021 SEASON MAY 4 WITH REDUCED CAPACITY, COVID GUIDELINES
The Charleston RiverDogs announced its 2021 schedule on Thursday, with gates opening to fans May 4 to kick off a six-day home stand at The Joe against the Myrtle Beach Pelicans. The team expects to allow fans into all home games this year at reduced capacity, with hopes for full-capacity games if possible. The RiverDogs are working with local and state officials, Major League Baseball and MUSC Health to finalize COVID-19 guidelines to allow guests a safe experience. The RiverDogs announced a new Major League affiliation with the 2020 American League champion Tampa Bay Rays in the offseason. “We are thrilled to have a schedule and a clear path to have professional baseball back at The Joe in just a few short months,” said RiverDogs president and general manager Dave Echols. “We’ve got a whole year of fun to make up for.” He’s not the only one itching to get back to the stadium. The team’s anonymous dog whisperer for Charlie the RiverDog gave the City Paper an exclusive interview recently, painting a picture of a dog ready to get back to high-fiving kids, moms and dads and chowing down on snacks. “It’s been a challenge for him to have no baseball at The Joe,” our Charlie-whisperer told us. “Baseball season is the best part of every year, and to not have games and not see all of the fans was really hard for Charlie.” Discounted voucher plans are available through March 1. Single game tickets will be made publicly available March 7. —Skyler Baldwin
ACTIVISTS JOIN NATIONAL DAY OF SOLIDARITY WITH ALABAMA AMAZON WORKERS SEEKING UNION About 30 people gathered outside the Amazonowned Whole Foods grocery store in West Ashley Saturday to voice solidarity with the mega-retailer’s Alabama warehouse workers who are seeking to organize a labor union in the Deep South. As part of a national day of solidarity organized by the Southern Workers Assembly, Charleston activists, organized by the local Democratic Socialists of America chapter, stood at the corner of Savannah Highway and Farmfield Avenue starting at 1 p.m. Workers at an Amazon distribution warehouse in Bessemer, Alabama, are in the process of a mail-in vote to decide if they want the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union to represent them. The effort has reportedly been underway since last summer at the warehouse, which employs 5,800 people, according to The New York Times. “Warehouse workers in Bessemer, Alabama,
of all places, have taken these very bold steps to try to establish a union, and given the deep history of anti-unionism, they can use all the support they can get,” said Kerry Taylor, the president of the Charleston Alliance for Fair Employment (C.A.F.E.). “They’re fighting for better wages and working conditions.” Carrying signs asking drivers to “honk if you love unions,” the masked activists outside the Whole Foods were greeted with a fair amount of support. Those who appeared opposed to the workers’ organizing pointed middle fingers and thumbs in different directions. One critical driver yelled out his window, only to have his hat blown off his head. South Carolina’s workforce has the nation’s lowest unionization rate and the 43rd-lowest per capita income. Just 2.9% of the state’s 2.14 million workers belong to labor unions. —Sam Spence

GIRLS MENTORING GROUP ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR SPRING 2021 SESSION Enrollment for the Girl2Girl Mentoring Group, a program to help empower pre-adolescent girls between 11-13 years old struggling with self-esteem issues, has begun accepting applications for its March 13-June 5 session. The program outlines topics and creates activities that teach participating girls how to transition into adulthood, an internal struggle that has been complicated by the digital age, program founders said in a press release. “We meet with these young ladies every week and discuss topics
related to their mental health and self-esteem,” said Jalesa Green, one of the program founders. “Our program is designed to help young girls learn new tools to conquer their lack of confidence to become stronger students and people.” Founders believe that creating safe spaces for young girls to grow and learn can do wonders for their self-esteem and future, according to a press release. Enrollment is open online. There is a $45 application fee. —Skyler Baldwin
NORTH CHARLESTON PLAN WOULD CLEAR WAY FOR FRESH FUTURE FARM, METANOIA TO BUY PROPERTIES SEPARATELY
A plan approved by a North Charleston City Council committee Thursday would clear the way for Fresh Future Farm and Metanoia to buy properties from the city separately rather than having the urban farm nonprofit negotiate an agreement with the community development group. Under a recommendation considered by the North Charleston City Council Finance Committee, the single property that includes the former Chicora Elementary School and Fresh Future Farm would be subdivided, removing the farm property from the larger parcel. The school property would be sold to Metanoia for $205,000. With Thursday’s approval, the plan will still need to pass two readings by city council. The move comes as the city is working through insurance claims on the historic Chicora Elementary School, which Metanoia planned to buy and renovate before it caught fire in early 2020. Fresh Future Farm raised about $72,500 on Kickstarter in 2019 to purchase the Success Street property where it operates a community farm and grocery store. An initial plan called for Metanoia to acquire the entire property and have its board strike a deal with Fresh Future Farm for its portion. But, negotiations halted over provisions that would have restricted Fresh Future Farm’s use of the land and given Metanoia the first right of refusal if the farm decided to sell. To move the school project forward, Metanoia CEO Bill Stanfield said the group requested the city resolve matters with Fresh Future Farm directly. Adam MacConnell, a project manager for the city of North Charleston, told the City Paper, “After we get the school property closed and insurance issues settled, we will begin discussions with FFF.” North Charleston Councilman Ron Brinson, the committee chairman, applauded both groups for their work and expected officials would be ready to work with Jenkins when the time comes. “I think that the city is going to help in any practical way,” he told the City Paper before Thursday’s meeting. —Sam Spence
“We are getting on offense as it relates to redistricting. We are getting on offense as it relates to voter registration. Please keep in mind that what occurred in Georgia started 10 years ago.” —South Carolina Democratic Party Chairman Trav Robertson said progressives in the state are going to have to play hardball if they’re going to make progress against a growing Republican majority in Columbia.
BLOTTER O’ THE WEEK
Police reported new details regarding an ongoing investigation into a “portal potty” being set on fire. We know they meant “Port-A-Potty,” but we can’t help but imagine a confused ritualist trying to open the door to another world through arson and portable toilets.

The Blotter is taken from reports filed with Charleston Police Department between Feb. 10 and Feb. 15. No one described in this section has been found guilty, just unlucky. Officers asked a downtown woman who appeared to be intoxicated if she had had any alcohol that evening, to which she reportedly replied with an excited shout, “Yes!” Police thought that was enough evidence to charge her, and we feel like most would be inclined to agree. Police confiscated a baggie of loose pink pills that a suspect advised he had a prescription for. The officers might have believed him, if he hadn’t also said he had a prescription for the weed they found in his pocket. One man reportedly stole a number of various winter hats from a West Ashley department store. Look, man, we know a good chunk of the United States is on ice right now, but it was, pretty warm just last week.
The same man appeared in four separate police reports last week, all for open container or public intoxication. One of the write-ups described him as having been asleep in a bush, still holding the can of Icehouse beer upright in his hand. A handgun, an iPhone 8 and three catalytic converters were reported stolen from various vehicles throughout the Charleston area. We are excitedly waiting for the next auto-theft trend once the novelty of catalytic converters wears off. While being escorted out of a downtown pharmacy by employees, a woman reportedly yelled, “I’ll slice you,” in an angry, but mostly unintelligible tone. According to reports, the woman had no weapon for said slicing, but did throw a gnarly haymaker at a cop afterward.
We’ve had a few reports of drinks being stolen from convenience stores, but one man apparently skipped the middleman and went for the espresso machine, a $700, heavy steel piece of hardware, from a downtown kitchen supply store. Nice. A West Ashley woman who told officers her car was stolen also said she was going through a divorce. She went on to say that she didn’t think that had anything to do with the theft, but just wanted to let officers know. She’s either being very thorough or she’s shooting her shot. Props either way. A report of a man “playing with his genitals” in his car led to a rousing game of “Guess the Make and Model,” whereby officers scoured Google images for various cars until they found one that matched the witness’ description — a great game under normal conditions, complicated by a compelling distraction on the witness’ end.

Give Fresh Future Farm a deal once and for all
CHARLESTON CITY PAPER 02.24.2021
resh Future Farm deserves a deal to buy its land. The city of North Charleston must do everything it can to make it happen. There’s no more time for stalling or excuses. As we’ve been saying for nearly a year: Give Fresh Future Farm a clear path forward to continue its work in the community. Sell the land. North Charleston City Council took an encouraging step forward last week by subdividing the property that Fresh Future Farm (FFF) has been leasing since 2014 away from the larger property being sold to Metanoia. This makes way for the farm to negotiate the acquisition of its property directly from the city. An earlier arrangement would have had FFF brokering a deal with Metanoia as it works on renovating the historic school buildings next door. But, that has taken way too long. City officials are right to applaud the work of Fresh Future Farm and Metanoia. The new, less-complicated arrangement has the potential to be better for all parties involved, enabling the nonprofits to expand their work as gentrification forces zero in on the low-income Chicora-Cherokee community. Throughout the pandemic, Fresh Future Farm and its co-founder Germaine Jenkins have continued to service the group’s mission of expanding access to fresh foods, delivering groceries and serving meals to people in need. In fact, FFF’s pioneering work is more relevant now than ever, and people are taking notice. In 2019, Jenkins was listed on Essence magazine’s “Woke 100” alongside the likes of former First Lady Michelle Obama. As the chairperson for the S.C. Black Farmers Conference, Jenkins has taken the

lead on public discussions about national issues of land justice and food security. North Charleston is lucky to have Jenkins and Fresh Future Farm. But even with generous local support, Jenkins said it’s been difficult to earn the trust of South Carolina institutions. “Outside of the state, people celebrate our work; it’s ‘groundbreaking;’ nobody’s doing what we’re doing … And here, I can’t get $2,000 without signing my life away,” she told us last year. North Charleston officials have long talked about cultivating growth in the southern end of the city near FFF. Despite all that talk and despite personal assurances by the mayor and others, the area has been a food desert for nearly a decade now. There may not be a major grocery store, but there is Fresh Future Farm. The city has provided generous lease terms for the farm until now, but it’s time to let it grow to its full potential. As one of the state’s largest local governments, North Charleston is well-resourced to make the FFF sale happen. Just look at the rest of the Finance Committee agenda last week: At the same meeting, city officials gave initial approval to the $1.69 million sale of land to Water Mission on the old Navy base. It approved a tax increment finance district that will generate more than $10 million from development over the next decade. And it gave initial sign-off on the $205,000 sale of the old Chicora Elementary to Metanoia. FFF should be next in line. It’s past time to sell Fresh Future Farm its land. No strings attached.

State solicitors and the director of the South Carolina Department of Corrections (SCDC) asked legislators earlier this month to bring back the electric chair as the default method of execution in South Carolina. Their argument was about process. First, they presented their problem. The state has condemned humans to die, but it cannot get its hands on the drugs needed to kill. They even mentioned the reason that they can’t get the drugs is because drug manufacturers don’t want their drugs used as lethal cocktails to be injected into people. Second, they presented their solution. The legislature can bring back the electric chair as the default method of execution. This, they argue, will get the machinery of death rolling again. A few solicitors even threw in the old “the death penalty is a deterrent” argument. To support this, you have to assume that South Carolina’s death penalty system is fair and accurate. News flash: It’s not. Public policy decisions should be based on facts and evidence. Here are the facts surrounding South Carolina’s death penalty system. Let’s start with the deterrent argument, which can be quickly dismissed by the facts. If their claim were true, we would see lower homicide rates in death penalty states compared with non-death penalty states. In reality, the opposite is true. Murder rates are substantially lower in non-death penalty states. Between 2000 and 2018, the murder rate was over 30% lower in nondeath penalty states compared to death penalty states. During the height of the “tough on crime” era, a national poll of police chiefs found the death penalty ranked as the least effective tool for reducing violent crime. Now to the real issue. We do not have a fair and accurate death penalty system in South Carolina. It is unconscionable that we are debating the method of execution when we have a death penalty system that is both unreliable and arbitrary. South Carolina’s capital punishment system makes mistakes, yet capital punishment is irreversible. Since 1973, 174 people who were sentenced to death in our country have been exonerated, including at least two people in South Carolina. In addition, South Carolina courts have wrongly convicted at least nine people since 1989 alone, including five for murder. When talking about the power of the state to kill, one mistake is unacceptable — in South Carolina, we have had multiple. Capital punishment is applied arbitrarily in our country, and South Carolina is no exception. The likelihood of receiving a death sentence in South Carolina is not primarily based on the facts in your case, but rather on the race and gender of the victim, the location of the offense and the solicitor in office at the time of the offense. When the outcome of a capital case is driven by these arbitrary factors, equal justice under law becomes a meaningless phrase. The arbitrary and unreliable nature of capital punishment in South Carolina is only part of the problem. Capital punishment evolved from lynchings and racial terror, and South Carolina has failed to divorce its modern capital punishment system from this racist history. It remains a racist system. Today in South Carolina, Black people make up more than half of South Carolina’s death row, despite being only 27% of the state’s population. This staggering disparity becomes clear when you look at the role race plays in capital sentencing. People convicted of a capital offense are substantially more likely to receive a death sentence if the victim was white rather than Black. This disparity against Black people exists across all categories of capital sentencing. The death penalty is modern-day lynching. Unfortunately, our state legislature seems ready to ignore the reality of capital punishment in South Carolina and resurrect the electric chair as the state’s default method of execution. Let’s stop pretending that we can fix a system that is broken beyond repair. This isn’t about process. This is about ending a deeply flawed and harmful system. Let’s finally abolish the death penalty in South Carolina.

Hell and a Good Time

RADIO PERSONALITY AND PRODUCER SEAN DOLBY SAT IN HIS HANAHAN OFFICE. PICTURES AND MUSIC POSTERS COVER THE WHITE WALLS SURROUNDING HIS DESK. IN AN ADJACENT ROOM IS A SMALL STUDIO SPACE WHERE DOLBY WORKS ON ORIGINAL MUSIC OR RECORDS LOCAL ARTISTS
CHARLESTON CHARLESTONCITY CITYPAPER PAPER02.24.2021 02.24.2021
OF ALL TYPES.
“The one thing I’ve learned is that the radio business is more cutthroat than the record business,” Dolby said. Words like this don’t come from a place of defeat, but experience. Since the 1980s, Dolby has been something of an unsung hero in old school Charleston hip-hop. Some who know him are passionate supporters of his place in local music history. Despite that earnest praise, Dolby quietly passed his latest landmark in November — 40 years on the radio. Through the years, Dolby found success in several outlets, including music production across genres. But, one of his first and biggest claims to fame is helping to shepherd the hip-hop scene in Charleston from its humble beginnings in the 1980s, through the boom-bap era, into the 2000s.
Dolby got his start in radio at an unusually young age. “I always had this voice, even when I was 13,” he said. On a whim, a 14-year-old Dolby called Charleston’s WPAL-AM to ask if he could be on air. Cutting school, he rode his bike to the station after scheduling an interview. “They thought it was funny at first until they took me into the room,” he recalled. “[They asked,] ‘Do you want a part-time job?’ That’s when it became serious.” In his earliest days, Dolby found comfort in rock and pop. “Hip-hop was never my first love,” he said. “It was always classic rock and singers and standards, the Sinatras and a lot of classic country.” Born Sean Porcher, the DJ adopted “Dolby” on air in the ’80s, when he started doing shows that mixed “AM radio and FM radio with humor,” he said. The new style and his skill behind the turntable came from experimentation. One of his shows from 1984, “The 25th Hour,” was a platform for hip-hop in the Lowcountry — and as Dolby recalled, a risk for the network. “When we were younger, nobody understood what we were doing. Hip-hop was too new,” he said. “Everybody thought it wasn’t going to last, but the kids loved the show.” Chawle Dawk the Superstar, of the local rap group Langston Hughes III, was quick to point out how influential Dolby was to Charleston’s hip-hop scene, referring to him as an “elder statesman.” They never worked together extensively, but he considered Dolby a mentor. “There’s no South Carolina hip-hop history without him,” he said. “He’s on the Mount Rushmore for South Carolina, definitely.” Chawle noted Dolby was an influential producer, as well. “He covered radio; he covered the actual street with making, producing music and grooming groups; and he was the No. 1 DJ in the clubs,” he said. “He could work with rock groups; he could work with pop groups. He’s done a little bit of everything.” At 54, Dolby looks back on his experience during the ’80s and gives one piece of advice: “Don’t give a 15-year-old that much money,” he said. “I got the big head, moved out when I was 15, moved to Folly Beach when it was affordable.” Dolby described the hard-partying lifestyle of his youth as both hell and a good time. The life of a local celebrity became increasingly surreal as the decade wore on: people whispered about him in the grocery store, Dolby would encounter his high school teachers at clubs where he would DJ and he began partying with lawyers and doctors instead of people his age. “My teenage life was destructive because I never got to do teenage things,” Dolby said. “While everyone else was going to Godfather’s Pizza and the skating rink, I went to the Market and was playing jazz piano with Oscar Rivers.”
The ’90s was the golden era of radio, in Dolby’s opinion, thanks to new options for DJs to remix tracks and some of his personal favorite music. But near the beginning of the next decade, he started to fall out of love with one of his jobs.
Don’t Quit, Just Reinvent

alcoholic, and they go hand in hand.” Dolby’s radio career came to a hushed slow-down in December 2019 for reasons that he mostly attributed to the pandemic and “a bad stroke of luck.” Steve Crumbley, Star 99.7 program director and operations manager, declined to comment on why Dolby is not hosting his radio show at this time. “In the few years that I have known him, I respect his talent, it’s amazing,” Crumbley said. “His production is funny, it’s good, he comes up with clever ideas and things to do for his commercials … He dares to do something different and push the envelope to the edge.” Dolby is still under contract with Star 99.7, he said, and still does the Afternoon Drive Time mix every Friday. “I’m heard,” he said. “I don’t really trip too much on it.” In 2020, at the time of his 40th anniversary on the radio, Dolby said he celebrated by announcing that he was ready to leave the airwaves. “I’ve done enough,” he told the City Paper. “I don’t ever want to quit. I just want to reinvent.” Dolby has continued speaking on air, but in a more modern fashion with his podcast, Seanie After Dark, co-hosted by musician Heather Rogers.
Record Player Say what you will about Dolby, but he stays busy. As he began to add production credits to his name outside of radio, he steadily built his own production group, Kamillionz Media, through the 2000s.
As early as 1984, he was producing beats for rap duo Skip Ski and Double D. Later in his career, he worked with artists like Fatman Scoop. In 2020, he co-founded a distribution label, KamRok Unlimited. Despite a career in radio that spanned most of his life, Dolby is still surprised musicians of certain eras recognize him. His voice and airwave antics were how many got introduced to him, but his time behind the scenes has given him staying power. Some of his local hits, like “Everybody Rock Up” and Mista Taylor’s “Mirror Dance,” are still heard in local clubs today. Twin D, founder and producer at local cornerstone rap studio Twin D 1st Century Entertainment, said Dolby’s work made him a pioneer. “[Dolby’s] definitely a trend-setter,” he said. “Without Sean, we would possibly be one step down, if that makes sense. He was one of the first guys that brought the light to the music scene here in Charleston.” Twin cited Dolby, alongside artists like T-Mac and the Carolina Pathfindaz, as influences on Twin D 1st Century. Last year, Dolby produced Record Player, an album he described as “DJ Khaled-style,” making the tracks or the hooks and bringing on other artists to collaborate. The album is a mixture of rock and hiphop, with local guest spots from Missy and the MeerKats, Chris Dodson and Mason Jar Muzik. Record Player’s unofficial sequel, Street Player, is in the works now. The LP, a satire of newer hip-hop, will feature younger

artists Dolby’s met in recent years, including Pora and Downtown Brown. Among Dolby’s long-time followers, he’s noted for producing across genres. His influences are heavy-hitters like Dr. Dre and Rick Rubin, producers who have a knack for finding obscure talent and putting them in the spotlight. Near the end of one career and in the midst of continuing another, it’s tough not to wonder what the future looks like. “[In 10 years], hopefully I can sit back and watch some of the people I’ve trained get their flowers,” he said, expressing interest in musician activism and grabbing awards. “By 64, I promise you, I will be married and not doing this, observing from the outside.” But for the time being, he’s still got a few songs in him, even a few rap beats; although, he doesn’t care for much modern hip-hop. “I work with a lot of young cats,” he said. “And, they’re always like, ‘You’re 54, and you know how to do trap beats?’ I’m like, ‘Please.’ ”

The Lowcountry has been Dolby’s home for the majority of his life, but there was a time when he bounced from station to station across the Southeast. After one of several stints at Z-93 Jamz near the turn of the century, Dolby began traveling between Charleston and Atlanta. Later, he set up shop in Montgomery, then Central Florida as a radio personality for a retirement community. “Playing golf and riding horses—that’s what I was doing off the radio,” he said. Upon returning to Charleston, Dolby found, once again, that he wanted nothing to do with radio, opting to produce music instead. It wasn’t until roughly three years ago that he got back on the mic at Star 99.7. “I had a problem with radio. I was at war,” he said. “I thought I was blacklisted, not because of anything, but because I am known to be an asshole.” Dolby often fashioned himself to be the “bad boy” of local radio. In the past, on-air discussions about the church and its influence in politics would push listeners’ buttons, he said. Occasional on-air expletives helped burnish that image. As he looks at modern radio from an outsider’s perspective, after 40 years of being in the booth, Dolby believes local radio isn’t doing enough to support local artists. Some stations, like 105.5 the Bridge and Ohm Radio, do focus on Charleston music to varying degrees, he said, but there’s always more radio can do. “I think what urban radio does is it doesn’t pay attention to a lot of other things that are the non-popular topics of discussion in the Black community,” he said, citing autism awareness as an example. “I’ve spoken a lot about depression in the Black community because I went through it. You don’t ever really get healed from depression. It’s like being an

365 Days Avery’s new film, We Celebrate Year Round, honors Charleston’s Black culture BY VINCENT HARRIS February is typically the busiest month for the Avery Research Center for African American History and Culture. For more than 35 years, the center, part of the College of Charleston, has collected art and archival materials that document the history, traditions and legacies of African Americans and their influences on American society and culture. So Black History Month, as one might imagine, is a blur of activity. “We have a lot of classes visit,” said Courtney Hicks, outreach assistant for the Avery Research Center. “We usually have a lot of tour groups, and people who just want to learn a little bit more about Black history specific to the Lowcountry and the GullahGeechee Corridor.” But, that was before the COVID19 pandemic, and right now, the Avery Research Center is closed to the public. So, the team at Avery put together a program of virtual Black History Month events this year, including book discussions with African-American history scholars Amrita Chakrabarti Myers and Douglas Flowe, CNN analyst and former S.C. Rep. Bakari Sellers, an emerging scholar lecture from Danielle Fuentes Morgan and a musical performance by vocalist Zandrina Dunning. Capping off the programming, the research center is debuting a 45-minute film on Feb. 26 called We Celebrate Year Round on YouTube, Instagram TV and Facebook. The project is a collaboration between Hicks and Eye of Elohim, a local, Black-owned film and photography company. The film brings together an array of
local artisans, historians and storytellers to talk about historical and cultural touchstones of the Lowcountry and to demonstrate their skills. “You will be hearing great music by the College of Charleston Gospel Choir under the direction of Brenten Weeks,” Hicks said. “You will also be able to engage in a Gullah folk tale told by [storyteller and oral historian] Mrs. Minerva King. [Activist and healer] chef Wibi will also be giving a tutorial about the importance of food justice, along with showing our viewers how they’re able to sprout their own vegetables.” Hicks said the film, which also features appearances by Akua Page and Chris Cato of the Geechee Experience as well as chef and food writer Amethyst Ganaway, was designed to remind viewers that Black history goes beyond merely the month of February. “Black history is American history,” she said. “Without Black culture, you’re unable to move through life.” Hicks worked closely with the filmmakers to make sure We Celebrate Year Round stayed close to home, she said. “It’s basically a film that is highlighting what makes Charleston great,” Hicks said. “It goes from discussing food justice to rice culture to sweetgrass culture and how natives are using that culture to create their own businesses and brands that are really indicative to their identity.” The film also discusses the history of the Avery Research Center, which was founded in 1865 as the Avery Normal Institute, an education and advocacy hub
for Charleston’s Black community. “It’s a great way that not only students but also people of all ages, are able to reconnect with the Avery,” Hicks said, “and also learn a little bit more about the culture that is so deeply embedded in the places that we live.” As sweeping as the film’s scope is, it actually came together relatively quickly. “I pitched the idea in November,” Hicks said. “I began reaching out to people in December. Then we began shooting with Eye of Elohim videography in late January. It’s been a great project and an interesting last four months.” In terms of deciding who to interview for the film, Hicks said working at Avery has its advantages. “One of the greatest parts about being deeply embedded with the culture that surrounds where you work and where you live, is that you begin to foster great relationships with very talented individuals,” she said. “So, it was mainly me taking some time to think about people who are very well-versed in the subject matter that we were covering, along with highlighting a few unsung heroes who may not be getting as much publicity.” Hicks said she plans to continue with virtual programming even after the pandemic, simply because of its longevity. “Virtual programming is not easy,” she said. “But, it’s really rewarding because you always have a digital footprint. As much as it is a little bit more strenuous than having an in-person lecture or in-person activity, it is something that can reach a larger audience.”

GUEST CLOUMN | BY KIRSTIN McWATERS
Welcome to Westview WandaVision is a much-needed Marvel Cinematic Universe revitalization
WandaVision, the newest and riskiest addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, has taken the critical world by storm. After a couple of movies with relatively predictable climaxes, Disney gambled its new Marvel phase on the success of a television show that exclusively airs on Disney+, and I would say it paid off in spades. This is largely thanks to how different it is compared to the last Avengers films. Love it or hate it, Infinity War is not a great stand-alone movie if you haven’t seen or read much Marvel before. I think it was meant to be a love letter to dedicated fans, so I felt left out in the cold, as someone who hadn’t seen most of the Marvel movies. That experience behind me, and knowing another 3-hour Avengers blockbuster called Endgame was in the works, I decided to watch every single Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) movie in a summer. I’ve seen them all now, including Endgame, but I’m still not the person that gets overly excited for new Marvel releases. Some did catch my attention more than others. I’ve really enjoyed the recent Tom Holland Spiderman series, but the Iron Man and Captain America trilogies frankly underwhelmed me. Marvel seems to keep trying to outdo itself in terms of action and death, and there’s only so far you can take those stories before they become repetitive or run out of steam. This brings us to Marvel’s latest MCU tie-in television series, WandaVision. After Avengers: Endgame, I wasn’t sure how to feel about WandaVision when it was announced because … none of the promos made any sense to me. Now, I know that was on purpose because it’s so different from anything Marvel has released before. It centers around this false reality, starring Wanda Maximoff and Vision in their own sitcom that seems to move through a different decade’s style of TV as it goes. Of course, not all is as it seems. Sure, we’ve seen weird, virtual-reality arcs before, but never like this. I decided to watch WandaVision after Twitter exploded over the first episode, and oh boy, was I roped back into the MCU because of it. I’m not alone, Images courtesy Marvel/Disney either! Every corner of the internet seems to be WANDAVISION IS A MYSTERIOUS RIDE obsessed with the show. THROUGH TELEVISION ERAS PAST So what is it about WandaVision that made it more palatable to a wider audience? I’m personally drawn to the show because it’s unpredictable and focused on the emotional journeys of the characters instead of long, and often way-too-drawn-out, action sequences. There’s more subtlety in the action. It feels like a puzzle that needs to be solved piece by piece. Each episode seems to land on an even bigger cliffhanger than the last, making the WandaVision frenzy more powerful as it goes. Not to mention, the massive dose of nostalgia given to us each week as we travel through different time periods of television is great. I love shows like I Love Lucy and Bewitched, so the first two episodes were my favorites, but I’m just flat out hooked on the mystery of Westview now. This feels like a smarter, well-thought-out, detailed and exciting start to this new age of Marvel. I can only hope that they continue putting this much into the new series of movies that are slated for the next few years because if they do, I may have to go pick up some comic books and become a full-blown fan. WandaVision is currently streaming on Disney+, with new episodes every Friday.

With Workshop closing, has Charleston’s food hall phase come and gone? BY PARKER MILNER Workshop’s January announcement that it would permanently close shocked the restaurant community and patrons who still frequent the rotating food hall. But, should we have seen this coming? It’s clear the business model had its issues, as owner Michael Shemtov candidly told the City Paper. But with the additional news that food hall plans also stalled at Park Circle’s Garco Mill redevelopment, Charleston’s food hall future appears to be uncertain. Meanwhile, investors in Charlotte and Greenville have forged ahead with what some are calling “the independent F&B model for the future.” From Pike’s Place Market in Seattle to Chelsea Market in New York City, the mostvisited food halls in the country have several things in common — there’s a buzzing environment, diversity, state-of-the-art equipment for chefs and manageable wait times. Workshop has most, if not all, of these characteristics. “We spent a lot of money on the kitchen,” Shemtov said “It was probably a $700,000 kitchen.” Inside the impressive kitchen are tenants signed to short-term leases, setting Workshop apart from classic food halls that strive to find concepts that stick around for years. That was the goal at Garco Mill, a Park Circle development that in 2018 announced its plans to build a 12,500-square-foot food hall featuring 16 stalls. But earlier this month, developers announced those plans were off and the area would be converted into office and restaurant space. “Construction delays were problematic, and we ultimately decided to scale down the food hall space to offer more flexibility, including space for food concepts and also to meet more of the demand for office,” Garco Mill developer Jay Weaver said in an email to the City Paper. In an interview with The Post and Courier, Weaver’s partner and Republican State Rep. William Cogswell said he was uncertain what will go in the Garco Mill space reserved for food service. Cogswell did not respond to the City Paper’s request for comment.
ABOVE: WORKSHOP WILL PERMANENTLY CLOSE THIS SPRING BELOW: CHARLOTTE’S OPTIMIST HALL OPENED IN 2019
Success Upstate Gather GVL debuted in downtown Greenville on Feb. 18, 2020, and despite opening just before the onset of the pandemic, the food hall has filled 10 of its 13 stalls, signing tenants with 1-5 year leases, according to Gather co-owner Mack Cross. “What we set out to do was create an opportunity for folks that were talented but didn’t otherwise have opportunities to go into downtown Greenville,” said Cross, adding that they targeted established restaurateurs and up-and-coming chefs as potential tenants. “We wanted to lower the barrier to entry for sure.” Cross said this has led to some tenant turnover in Gather’s first year, but he’s confident in the current group that will soon include West Ashley eatery Spanglish, which will open Myami Bites in one of the hall’s incubator spaces. Charlotte’s 2-year-old Optimist Hall has a strong list of 23 tenants, including two Charleston transplants — Boxcar Betty’s and Xiao Bao Biscuit, which will join the hall later this year. Unlike Workshop and Gather, Optimist Hall prefers to sign its tenants to 5-10 year leases, Optimist developer Merritt Lancaster told the City Paper. “From our view, a food hall is hopefully all things to all people,” Lancaster said. While Shemtov took a hands-on approach

to operating Workshop, given its inexperienced tenants, Lancaster, who was a part of the Garco Mill development before selling his stake for reasons unrelated to the project itself, said Optimist “generally stays out of (tenants’) immediate business.” “We are effectively running the front-ofhouse of a giant restaurant.”
Back Home In a post-COVID-19 world, food halls are positioned to succeed, according to a May 2020 report by real estate investment firm Cushman & Wakefield. Manipulatable seating, expansive outdoor space and a decline in stand-alone restaurants were some of the reasons cited by analysts, who called food halls “the independent F&B model for the future.” But, what does this mean for Charleston? “There’s a big trend with malls trying to redo their food courts in the style of a food hall,” Shemtov said. Consulting firm Deloitte has even predicted “a renaissance” for mall food courts. Citadel Mall director of sales and leasing Ginger Davis wasn’t ready to commit to sweeping changes at the West Ashley mall, but she hopes to welcome up-and-coming Charleston restaurateurs and “chef-driven concepts” in the future.
Forthcoming Sullivan’s Island eatery The Longboard Restaurant + Bar has named its new executive chef ahead of an anticipated summer 2021 opening at 2213B Middle St. New Longboard chef Will Fincher knows the island well after spending seven years at the Obstinate Daughter, located blocks away from the Longboard on Middle Street. The Longboard is the Ballast Hospitality Group’s third restaurant — the other two are located in St. John and St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands. The group opened its flagship restaurant — also called The Longboard — in May 2015. Fincher will spend time at the group’s U.S. Virgin Island restaurants ahead of The Longboard’s opening on Sullivan’s Island, a press release said. Charleston-based firms Cortney Bishop Design and Beau Clowney Architects led the two-year renovation of the space previously occupied by 450 Pizza Joint, which closed in August 2019. Once open, The Longboard will feature an expansive raw bar selection and menu items like wood-fired prawns with Carolina gold rice, baked oysters in jerk butter, tamarind glazed ribs and more. For drinks, look for tropical craft cocktails, local kombucha, local craft beer and frozen drinks on tap. The Longboard will open for dinner this summer, with plans to add lunch and brunch later in the year. For more information, visit thelongboardsullivans.com. —Parker Milner
ZIA TAQUERIA MOVING INTO NEW MAYBANK DIGS James Island Mexican restaurant Zia Taqueria will move across the street into the space previously occupied by Athens Restaurant & Grill, which announced its permanent closure on Dec. 10. Zia chef/owner Kevin Grant purchased the lease on the Maybank Highway property shortly after and plans to move in by early June, he told the City Paper last week. “I’ve been thinking about it for about two years, and I took over the lease here in December 2020,” said Grant, adding that he’s shopping the lease on Zia’s current space in a plaza it shares with Terrace Theater, Bar George, Crust Wood Fired Pizza and Paddock & Whiskey. “Trying to get that taken care of is our number one priority.” The new and improved Zia Taqueria will allow Grant to shift to a full service format — currently, patrons order at the bar and food is brought out to their tables. Once open, look for some new menu items — Grant hinted at skirt steak fajitas — and a renovated interior. Zia Taqueria’s current location will remain “open indefinitely until further notice,” said Grant, adding that he hopes to switch to the new location within two weeks of its completion to avoid closing for an extended period of time. —PM Be the first to know.

CHARLESTON CITY PAPER 02.24.2021
Free Will Astrology
ARIES (March 21-April 19): I invite you to think about one or two types of physical discomforts and symptoms that your body seems most susceptible to. Meditate on the possibility that there are specific moods or feelings associated with those discomforts and symptoms — perhaps either caused by them or the cause of them. The next step is to formulate an intention to monitor any interactions that might transpire between the bodily states and emotional states. Then make a plan for how you will address them both with your own healing power whenever they visit you in the future. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Poet Billy Collins describes “standing on the edge of a lake on a moonlit night and the light of the moon is always pointing straight at you.” I have high hopes that your entire life will be like that in the coming weeks: that you’ll feel as if the world is alive with special messages just for you; that every situation you’re in will feel like you belong there; that every intuition welling up from your subconscious mind into your conscious awareness will be specifically what you need at the moment it arrives. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You’re entering a potentially heroic phase of your astrological cycle. The coming weeks will be a time when I hope you will be motivated to raise your integrity and impeccability to record levels. To inspire you, I’ve grabbed a few affirmations from a moral code reputed to be written by a 14th-century Samurai warrior. Try saying them, and see if they rouse you to make your good character even better. 1. “I have no divine power; I make honesty my divine power.” 2. “I have no miracles; I make right action my miracle.” 3. “I have no enemy; I make carelessness my enemy.” 4. “I have no designs; I make ‘seizing opportunity’ my design.” 5. “I have no magic secrets; I make character my magic secret.” 6. “I have no armor; I make benevolence and righteousness my armor.” CANCER (June 21-July 22): “The only way to live is by accepting each minute as an unrepeatable miracle,” writes Cancerian author and Buddhist teacher Jack Kornfield. I disagree with him. There are many other modes of awareness that can be useful as we navigate our labyrinthine path through this crazy world. Regarding each minute as an opportunity to learn something new, for instance: That’s an excellent way to live. Or, for another example, treating each minute as another chance to creatively express our love. But I do acknowledge that Kornfield’s approach is sublime and appealing. And I think it will be especially apropos for you during the coming weeks. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): The coming weeks will be a poignant and healing time for you to remember the people in your life who have died — as well as ancestors whom you never met or didn’t know well. They have clues to offer you, rich feelings to nourish you with, course corrections to suggest. Get in touch with them through your dreams, meditations, and reminiscences. Now read this inspiration from poet Rainer Maria Rilke: “They, who passed away long ago, still exist in us, as predisposition, as burden upon our fate, as murmuring blood, and as gesture that rises up from the depths of time.” (Translation from the German by Stephen Mitchell.) VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): I’m fond of 18thcentury Virgo painter Quentin de La Tour. Why? He specialized in creating portraits that brought out his subjects’ charm and intelligence. As he grew wealthier, he became a philanthropist who specialized in helping poor women and artists with disabilities. While most painters of his era did self-portraits that were solemn, even ponderous, de La Tour’s selfportraits showed him smiling and good-humored. Later in his life, when being entirely reasonable was no longer a top priority, de La Tour enjoyed conversing with trees. In accordance with the astrological omens, I propose that we make him your patron saint for now. I hope you’ll be inspired to tap into your inner Quentin de la Tour. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): I’m not saying there’s anything wrong with your overall health, Libra. In fact, I expect it’s probably quite adequate. But from an astrological point of view, now is the right time to schedule an appointment for a consultation with
By Rob Brezsny
your favorite healer, even if just by Zoom. In addition, I urge you to consult a soul doctor for a complete metaphysical check-up. Chances are that your mental health is in fair shape, too. But right now, it’s not enough for your body and soul to be merely adequate; they need to receive intense doses of wellwrought love and nurturing. So, I urge you to ask for omens and signs and dreams about what precisely you can do to treat yourself with exquisite care. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): “Love commands a vast army of moods,” writes author Diane Ackerman. “Frantic and serene, vigilant and calm, wrung-out and fortified, explosive and sedate.” This fact of life will be prominently featured in your life during the coming weeks. Now is a fertile time to expand your understanding of how eros and romance work when they’re at their best — and to expand your repertoire of responses to love’s rich challenges. Don’t think of it as a tough test; imagine it as an interesting research project. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Sagittarian poet and visual artist William Blake (1757–1827) cultivated a close relationship with lofty thoughts and mystical visions. He lived with his wife Catherine for the last 45 years of his life, but there were times when he was so preoccupied with his amazing creations that he neglected his bond with her. Catherine once said, “I have very little of Mr. Blake’s company. He is always in Paradise.” I hope that you won’t be like that in the coming weeks. Practical matters and intimate alliances need more of your attention than usual. Consider the possibility, at least for now, of spending less time in paradise and more on earth. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Poet Robert Graves regarded the ambiguity of poetry as a virtue, not a problem. In his view, poetry’s inscrutability reflects life’s true nature. As we read its enigmatic ideas and feelings, we may be inspired to understand that experience is too complex to be reduced to simplistic descriptions and overgeneralized beliefs. In fact, it’s quite possible that if we invite poetry to retrain our perceptions, we will develop a more tolerant and inclusive perspective toward everything. I’m telling you this, Capricorn, because whether or not you read a lot of poetry in the coming weeks, it will be wise and healthy for you to celebrate, not just tolerate, how paradoxical and mysterious the world is. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): The coming weeks will be a favorable time to shed old habits that waste your energy, and create constructive new habits that will serve you well for months and years to come. To inspire and guide your efforts, I offer these thoughts from author and naturalist Henry David Thoreau: “As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives.” PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Piscean author Anais Nin was a maestro of metamorphosis, a virtuoso of variation, an adept at alteration. She regarded her ceaseless evolution as a privilege and luxury, not an oppressive inconvenience. “I take pleasure in my transformations,” she wrote. “I look quiet and consistent, but few know how many women there are in me.” Her approach is a healthy model for most of you Pisceans — and will be especially worth adopting in the coming weeks. I invite you to be a Change Specialist whose nickname is Flux Mojo. Homework: Complete this sentence: “Sooner or later, the pandemic will lose its power to limit us.

pulse BENZ.BIRDZ LETS OUT PANDEMIC FRUSTRATION ON ‘NUCLEAR MOUSETRAP’
The musician Benz.Birdz was like everyone else at the start of the pandemic last year: feeling angry and confused. “The feeling of being stuck for reasons completely beyond my control and the frustration that comes with watching all my plans fall apart took a long time to sink in and accept,” he told the City Paper. The latest track from Benz.Birdz, “Nuclear Mousetrap,” was released Feb. 12 on Spotify and bandcamp.com. This angsty indie song reflects the pain and confusion of life being thrown off course. “I felt if I could translate what I was feeling and how I was dealing with it, maybe it could connect with somebody, and perhaps give some much needed catharsis,” he said. The latest Benz.Birdz song reflects the frustration many felt with COVID, letting out a scream for all of us. —Katherine Jordan
Haley Mae Campbell is still growing on new EP
CHARLESTON CITY PAPER 02.24.2021
BY ALEX PEEPLES
Charleston-born and Nashville-based country singer Haley Mae Campbell and her band played live shows over 42 of the weekends in 2019. It looked like 2020 would offer the same level of touring until COVID19 silenced the live music world. “From the middle of March through April, I had, quite literally, hundreds of shows canceled,” Campbell said. She’s a songwriter through and through, and she’s done her best to be productive despite the past year. In fact, she just released an EP titled Growing Up on February 12, made up of singles from the past year and half. But, she’s a singer-songwriter hungry to perform in front of people. To call live shows the spark of her career would be an understatement. The numerous songs, stories, hooks, tours, social media posts — all of it stems from a pure adoration for performance. Campbell’s background in musical theater evolved into busking on King Street, which turned into a gig as the singer of a cover band. Once her original songs began to enter the frame, there was no looking back. Charleston helped inform her originals. “Being in the South, the country music scene is so big here, and it kind of crept up on me,” she said. “It took me a few years to realize that that’s where I was comfortable.” Charleston radio station WEZL-FM began to include her as a local mainstay of its annual Party in the Park event in Mount Pleasant, which gave Campbell ample opportunity to soak in contemporary country. “I was so intrigued by the songwriting and storytelling that’s so specific to the genre, and I began to realize that there are so many pockets within it and so much potential for it. It relates to people and tugs on heartstrings in such a unique way.” Country music radio gave her a bear hug in return after she embraced it. Campbell’s song “Anything but Yellow,” originally released in the summer of 2019, found its way to Spotify’s “Hot Country” playlist. “I thought you had to be signed and be established to show up there, but there I was,

seeing my song next to Thomas Rhett and Carrie Underwood,” she said. The result of the “Hot Country” appearance has been a cool 2 million Spotify streams for “Anything but Yellow.” Campbell wrote the song with another young country songwriter named Angel Edwards. The influence for the song came partially from Taylor Swift’s Red and the concept of music that’s “too pop to be country and too country to be pop.” It runs on the same country love song analogy that fueled classics like George Jones’ “The Race is On” or Buck Owens’ “Act Naturally.”
“Being in the South, the country music scene is so big here, and it kind of crept up on me. It took me a few years to realize that that’s where I was comfortable.” —Haley Mae Campbell
On “Anything but Yellow,” we’re taken inside the early stages of a relationship that’s likened to driving through traffic lights. The same style of wordplay lives in Campbell’s songs like, “Ghost Stories,” another one of the “heartstring pullers” that appears on Growing Up. Campbell’s songwriting shows its full potential on tracks like that. Her storytelling doesn’t come in the form of a narrative structure or the parabolic snapshots of songwriters like Dolly Parton or Willie Nelson. It comes out of relatability, with the lyrics open enough that you can see yourself in them. “Country is still a very traditional genre,” she said. “It’s still reliant on radio and promotion whereas everywhere else things kind of run on how viral something is. “I do think that there are boundaries being pushed,” Campbell said. “I think we’re past the point where people just see it as being ‘hick music’ or something like that. But, I’m hoping to eventually fill a hole that hasn’t been filled yet.”
Drew Blank is a local musician who wears many hats. He is known for composing, writing, performing accompaniment and producing his work since 2012. This month saw the release of his new album Expressions, on iTunes, Apple Music and Spotify. The album, which features 15 tracks, “covers a wide variety of genres,” Blank told the City Paper. “Not Now” is a rock ’n’ roll song that talks about pushing back against temptations of an ex and the pains of heartbreak. “Favorite Drive Thru Girl” has a more laid-back ’80s sound that will get you dancing. The lyrics use a series of food puns as Blank is in search of some loving and more importantly some ketchup. Blank said the “writing is top notch”, and he believes the versatility of his styles will keep the listener’s interest. —KJ
MY LIFE AS A DOG TRAVELS ON DEBUT LP
Ryan Hanifin’s latest project, My Life as a Dog, released its debut album, Borders, on Feb. 12. The LP is a collection of tales from Hanifin’s five-year journey from Texas to Brooklyn to Charleston. “Boundaries are a recurring theme throughout the album,” Hanifin said. “Whether geographical borders or emotional separations, I wanted to articulate what it feels like to pursue the unfamiliar in new places and relationships.” Borders is available on Spotify, Bandcamp and SoundCloud. —KJ If you or your band is about to enter the studio, hit the road, or has a special gig coming up, contact Heath Ellison at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Jazz-Funk Revue Herbie Night at the Pour House pays tribute to a jazz innovator Herbie Night Sun. Feb. 28 6:30 p.m. $12/seat (must purchase table) Pour House
The Poho Family Funk Revue will pay tribute to the legendary jazz funk composer and pianist Herbie Hancock Feb. 28. To nail the complex and groovy tunes Hancock was known for, the band will consist of saxophonist Mike Quinn and drummer Stuart White of Doom Flamingo, guitarist David Grimm of G.L.O.W. and Motown Throwdown, bassist Vonte E-Nuf of the Four20s and jazz pianist Nick Brewer. Hancock’s career, littered with classic albums and innovations, began in the early ’60s thanks to two other jazz titans: Miles Davis and Blue Note Records. Hancock wrote several jazz standards in his early days, such
as “Watermelon Man” and “Maiden Voyage,” while also performing in Davis’ quintet for most of the ’60s. After a string of critically lauded LPs where Hancock practiced different styles of jazz, he created his most controversial (and renowned) release in 1973, the jazzfusion album, Head Hunters. Throughout his career, Hancock released over 40 studio albums and a dozen live albums, achieving some crossover success with rock, funk and hip-hop crowds, as well. The Poho Family Funk Revue will have plenty to jam on. Seating is limited at the Pour House, due to COVID-19 restrictions. Tickets are $12 per seat, but concert goers are required to purchase all seats at a table. Tables range from two to eight seats. Tickets can be purchased online at charlestonpourhouse.com. —Heath Ellison
