Charleston joins national initiative to increase women on police force

News 04.21.2021

By Skyler Baldwin

The Charleston Police Department (CPD) has signed on to a national initiative to increase the number of women recruits in law enforcement to 30% by 2030. The move is an effort to build a more equitable police force as departments nationwide take cautious steps on reforms, with police policies thrust into the spotlight over repeated killings of Black men and women. Only 12% of all law enforcement recruits across the country are women, a number that looks worse in light of a number of recent reports suggesting that women in the line of duty use less force, are named in fewer complaints and lawsuits, are perceived by communities as more honest, see better outcomes for crime victims and make fewer discretionary arrests than male officers. Charleston has a slight head start, with an average of 17% of its law enforcement recruits being women. But, Charleston as a community is slightly over 52% female. CPD Sgt. Anthony Gibson said that’s the root cause of some issues — the police department doesn’t reflect its community’s demographic. The 30x30 Initiative brings together a coalition of police leaders, researchers and

“ 

Part of the reason we are so committed to this initiative is that there is so much social science that lends to women in policing using less force and less excessive force.” —Maureen McGough, New York University chief of staff for the Policing Project

organizations that have joined to advance the representation of women in all ranks of policing across the United States. “Part of the reason we are so committed to this initiative is that there is so much social science that lends to women in policing using less force and less excessive force,” said Maureen McGough, New York University chief of staff for the Policing Project, a group focused on policing accountability. According to a 2016 study from the University of Michigan, men tend to be more aggressive in the field, potentially

leading to more uses of force. McGough launched the national initiative March 26, and CPD was among the first to sign up, since the coalition’s objectives matched suggestions received during the department’s 2019 racial bias audit. “It’s tied to the racial bias audit in the commitment to equity through evidence-based policing,” said Wendy Stiver, the department’s director of research and procedural justice, in an e-mail to the City Paper. One of the suggestions stemming from the audit deals with data tracking for CPD in its recruitment division. Gibson is in charge of collecting that data and making sure information the department has is reliable and valid in real-time. Data is still being collected, and Gibson said they are looking into grant applications that would allow Law Enforcement Advancing Data and Science academics to look over the numbers and give more specific information ahead of schedule. “I’m going to put my money where my mouth is,” Gibson said. “I want to be preemptive and proactive about this—I don’t want to wait until the end of this initiative.” But the department’s priorities need more scrutiny overall, critics say.

Area restaurants desperate for employees

Sullivan’s Island forest cutting plan hot election issue

South Carolinians are getting vaccinated and cautiously beginning to resume life as it once was, meaning restaurants are getting busier. Local restaurateurs are grateful for the uptick in sales, but they’re now grappling with a new problem — staffing up to meet the demand. “At no point in time have we been sufficiently staffed since we reopened for service. Then, when we started getting busy in the last month, it ratcheted up to another level,” said Home Team BBQ owner Aaron Siegel. States with less restrictions like South Carolina and Florida are facing a shortage of available food and beverage employees heading into the summer, when vaccinated tourists will make warm weather states even busier. “I think the biggest thing is nobody saw how busy the city was going to be. I think it was an awakening for some restaurants,” said Nico Romo, who owns NICO in Mount Pleasant and Bistronomy by Nico downtown. “It’s a nationwide issue, but I think it’s probably amplified in areas that are less restrictive like ours,” Siegel said. “Even though we’ve steadily been pushing up rates over the past few years, I think that people are not willing to do this type of work for whatever reason.” Recent statistics from a five-month-old online staffing platform tell a similar story. Founded by Ben Ellsworth and celebrity chef Sean Brock, GigPro connects restaurants and employees looking for temporary extra shifts, allowing establishments to efficiently staff up when in need of help on-demand. Since its November 2020 launch, Ellsworth has seen a shift — at first, there weren’t enough available jobs for those looking to pick up shifts. But after seeing a 92% “fill rate” for jobs Ellsworth in February, that number dipped to around 50% in March, Ellsworth said. “Now it’s like, ‘How do we get the word out that we need people outside of the industry?’” he said. “It’s like Uber at 2 a.m.” Despite the low “fill rate,” GigPro is succeeding in its mission to connect restaurants with short-term employees. More than 75 jobs had been completed via the app eight days into April — in comparison, there were just under 100 completed during the entire month of February.

Two mayoral candidates and five town council candidates are vying for support in Sullivan’s Island’s coming May 4 election, but a decade-long lawsuit over trimming the barrier island’s maritime forest weighs heavy on the process. Homeowners cited concerns of vermin and wildfire risk when they requested the forest be trimmed prior to the lawsuit, which was settled by the town in October with a plan to cut many smaller trees. Other residents objected to the plan entirely, wanting the forest to stay wild instead. At a Tuesday forum hosted by the League of Women Voters, each of the hopefuls had something to say regarding the matter. “People are exhausted with the continuous fight,” mayoral candidate and Town Councilman Chauncey Clark said during the forum. “Many people on the island are tired of our inability to come to some reasonable compromise on this issue. It’s torn the island in two.” Many agree the settlement and subsequent management plan have been divisive, but some believe the fight is worth it to arrive at a favorable outcome for the island. “It’s correct that this has been discussed for 20+ years,” incumbent Mayor Pat O’Neil said during the forum. “But, the agreement the town signed onto bears little resemblance and little relation to the kinds of input we got over these many years — it was, pure and simple, a response to the suit.” Added trouble arose after a survey found 65 acres of the forest contains wetlands, and more land was classified as special coastal zones protected by the state of South Carolina. Other issues facing Sullivan’s Island residents include local impacts of rapid growth around the Lowcountry,the effects of climate change and concerns over traffic, parking and flooding are also part of the conversation in the town ahead of the upcoming election. “The process we have of engaging our community and its citizens is broken,” council candidate Kevin Pennington said during the forum. “Attending town council meetings is only a partial process, and it isn’t a constructive forum for problem solving and engaging the intelligence and resources we have available in the community. I want to see that process changed, and we have to provide that opportunity.” Other candidates present at the forum were Scott Millimet, Justin Novak and Gary Visser. The full online forum was recorded and can be viewed on the League of Women Voters’ Facebook page. Voters head to the polls on May 4. —Skyler Baldwin

Chef and restauranteur Nico Romo says staffing issues existed before the pandemic According to Cuban Gypsy Pantry co-owner Chloe Vivas, employee “poaching” tactics by at least one other local restaurant have tempted her staff with higher wages. This occurred earlier this month when multiple members of a “downtown restaurant” offered some of Vivas’ employees jobs while dining at her North Charleston location. Vivas did not disclose the name of the restaurant. The restaurant employee shortages existed pre-COVID-19, Ellsworth said, and the industry is due for a correction soon — one that could increase the cost of dining out in Charleston. Romo said rising home rental costs have made it more difficult for workers to afford housing near the restaurants that employ them. “It seems like everybody is jumping on this conversation right now,” said Romo, describing long commute times as a deterrent for some food and beverage industry workers. “I think that’s a major problem.” Although Romo is currently looking to hire “one chef, one or two food runners and one server” to work at his restaurants, the chef is grateful to have retained most of his staff throughout the pandemic. “I’m just super thankful for the staff I have.” —Parker Milner

SC leading nation during open enrollment

South Carolina is leading the nation in new enrollments for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), according to the latest update from the federal Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). During the first four weeks of spring’s special enrollment period, the number of residents in South Carolina signing up for new plans was 316% higher than the same period in 2020, and nearly 400% higher than in 2019, according to a press release from Palmetto Project. “The ACA was custom-designed for states like South Carolina with large numbers of citizens with low and moderate

paying jobs,” Steve Skardon, executive director of Palmetto Project, said in a press release. “We depend heavily on small businesses, and people who are self-employed or work multiple part-time jobs. The ACA is the only way they can gain access to high-quality, private health insurance.” In 2019, 3,226 S.C. residents selected a health plan under the ACA between Feb. 15 and March 15, according to the HHS. The number increased to 3,769 the following year, and to 15,666 in 2021, thanks in part to the new American Rescue Plan Act, which includes no-cost premiums and expanded eligibility for financial assistance.

Palmetto Project has been a driving force of education and enrollment efforts in the state since 2013. “When people know the facts and the truth of the ability to enroll, that really helps,” Palmetto Project Director Shelli Quenga told the City Paper in a February report. Alabama saw the second-highest growth in the country, with a 289% increase in new plan selections between 2020 and 2021, followed by Mississippi and Georgia. Palmetto Project started the country’s first statewide nonprofit insurance agency in 2018, giving coverage to more than 2,500 South Carolinians in the last year. —Skyler Baldwin


A downtown woman reported her “Silver Phantom” stolen after having purchased it for almost $10,000 recently. Before you get excited about what sounds like an affordable sports car, we have to tell you it’s a golf cart. RUNNERS UP A West Ashley woman received a series of phone calls, during one of which the caller said, “COVID should take you out because you’re a waste of air.” We don’t want to commend the obvious harassment, but we are pocketing that line for our own private use later. A man was barred from entering a downtown lounge, and he reportedly became belligerent with staff before officers arrived. The man told police he was glad they were there, because the lounge staff were clearly “racist toward white people.” Not how it works, dude. Police received reports of a shirtless man running throughout a parking lot, banging on doors and yelling. Surprise, surprise, he was intoxicated.

There’s been “overwhelming” support for the program in the department and among members of Charleston City Council, Gibson said. But, Frank Knaack, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of South Carolina (ACLU), said while this is a step in the right direction, it misses the underlying issue. “Right now, about one in every four city tax dollars is going to police, when we have an acute shortage of mental health services and so many people are housing insecure,” Knaack said. “When we think of public safety, we continue to think of the police, but they don’t have the tools or training to handle any of those issues.” Knaack also points to continued arrests for marijuana possession or alcohol-related offenses as evidence of the police perpetuating negative interactions between residents and law enforcement. Negative interactions with police can often end in violence, making addressing these issues all the more important, Knaack said. “After every horrible police abuse caught on camera, we have this consistent response from law enforcement that we need better training — ‘If we had that, everything would be better,’” Knaack said. “But, you don’t have to look any further than the police violence in Marion Square last year to see how untrue that is.” Even last week, former Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, officer Kim Potter fatally shot Daunte Wright, a Black man, during a traffic stop, sparking new waves of protests near the Minneapolis suburb. But, Gibson said tragedies like this are learning opportunities for officers throughout the country. “It would be difficult for men to generally apply one incident of use of force to an entire population of women police officers,” Gibson said. “We never stop learning, just because this happened in Brooklyn Center, we have to learn from this. We have got to do better. There’s no better time than now to be a police officer, despite the negativity surrounding the policing profession. As a department, these are learning opportunities.” According to the 30x30 initiative, many of the issues facing criminal justice boil down to inclusivity. But, inclusivity is more nuanced than external diversity, Gibson said. “Inclusion is not what you look like on the outside — that doesn’t predetermine what type of officer you’re going to be,” Gibson said. “Diversity of thought, diversity of background, diversity of aspirations — that’s everything we’re looking for. That is our central focus in terms of our strategic plan for recruitment.” Gibson said he has seen many female recruits feel as though they are less than other recruits, due to what he calls an “oldschool” way of thought regarding women in criminal justice roles. “It won’t be changing a mindset here,” he said. “This project is going to be changing an entire culture everywhere.”

Send a clear green message on Sullivan’s Island S

Views 04.21.2021

ullivan’s Island residents must send a clear proconservation message in the May 4 municipal election by voting for candidates who aren’t for devastating a maritime forest on accreted land. Otherwise, the town likely will have to live with a prodevelopment settlement from last year that authorized massive cutting in what will be little more than butchery to optimize views for rich folks. We encourage residents to reelect Mayor Pat O’Neil, as well as three newcomers — Scott Millmet, Justin Novak and Gary Visser. Two other council candidates, as well as O’Neil’s opponent, are pro-cutting. “There are a lot of ways you can characterize this, but in the end, we made the wrong decision. I think we have some opportunities to reverse that, and I would support any of them,” Visser said at a recent candidate forum run by the League of Women Voters. O’Neil admitted during the forum that the maritime forest, which includes some wetlands and places protected by state law, has been at issue for more than two decades. “But, the agreement the town signed onto bears little resemblance and little relation to the kinds of input we got over these many years — it was, pure and simple, a response to the suit. This is something that flies in the face of what the community has been asking for for many years.”

About 30 years ago, the town of Sullivan’s Island transferred preservation of the almost 200-acre tract to the Lowcountry Land Trust. The town also placed restrictions on the beachfront property’s deed to require the land to be kept in its natural state, although it allowed council to authorize some cutting for views. And ever since, the tree-cutters have wanted more and more, as lawyer Billy Want wrote in a recent op-ed. By 2010, two landowners sued, and things have gone downhill since then. Now the forest, which provides a buffer during big storms ,and habitat for birds and other animals, faces a serious man-made threat. The first Earth Day was 51 years ago. If there’s anything humans should have learned since then is that nature needs balance, not more harmful fiddling and destruction by humans. Sullivan’s Island’s ecosystem is already impacted with hundreds of beachfront homes, all of which allow residents to enjoy the area’s beauty. Let’s not make it worse. Cutting down a forest without seeing the vitality and necessity of its trees is exactly what we don’t need to provide balance on the island. If you live on Sullivan’s Island, send a clear message May 4 by voting to elect a slate of candidates who will work to protect the island and keep away the insipid crawl of development.

OPINION

Examining the impact of McMaster’s order on unaccompanied minors By Will McCorkle and Will Davis S.C. Gov. Henry McMaster recently signed an executive order barring unaccompanied minors from being housed by foster care or group homes in the state. This announcement came right after he made a very public trip to the border last week. His argument is that the state Department of Social Services is already short on foster care and cannot afford to house unaccompanied minors. We understand that the foster care system needs greater support, efficiency and structure, but to deny families that would take up the charge of caring for these migrant children is unethical and cruel. We did feel that as two individuals who have spent extensive time on the Mexican side of the border, serving, praying with and learning from the migrants at the border camp in Matamoros, Mexico, we could give some insights that are sorely missed in the current discussion. If you listen to McMaster and many in the nation, the problem is that Biden’s policies are too lenient. It is true that Biden has not allowed the quick removal and expulsion of minors, which was practiced under Trump, but this is because to deport minors to often horrific conditions and possible kidnapping is a human rights violation and against any legitimate ethical framework. However,

this alone does not explain the large surge of unaccompanied minors. Perhaps the more substantial issue is how Biden has continued with Title 42, a program that restricts those seeking asylum in the name of stopping the spread of COVID-19, which now is little more than an excuse to not open back up the borders to migrants. This has caused many families to make heart-wrenching decisions to send their children illegally across the Rio Grande River after they have been deported or stopped from entering. Families are forced to pay cartel members to have their children cross the river. If they try to cross without paying, they can be killed. Of course, this restrictive system bolsters the cartels even more. The problem is not that the Biden administration is too lenient but that it is continuing to be overly restrictive. Creating anxiety about immigration is a worn-out tactic used by those who want to create fear of the other to gain political clout. Unfortunately, McMaster is playing politics. It’s easy pickings when society as a whole has hardened hearts toward immigrants and is feeding that narrative under the guise of “protect and care for our own.” We are hoping as a society we can move beyond this simplistic thinking. We will never forget one of the last nights we were in the border camp that the people were praying they would finally have the chance to cross the Rio Grande, which they compared to the Jordan River.

Just as God delivered the children of Israel, he would deliver them. This past year has shown us it is due time for Americans to reevaluate their stances on caring for the orphan, widow, sojourner and oppressed. We believe this is a wakeup call for churches especially in the Bible Belt to recall the scriptures of caring for our neighbor and the need of supporting the foster care system while still embracing immigrant children. It’s time to reimagine what caring for sojourners and asylum seekers looks and sounds like. McMaster’s executive order is another compassionless political move that fuels cowardly convictions, which are roots of biased, discriminatory and xenophobic mindsets to which any of us can succumb if we do not actively work against it. We hope that our state government will evaluate DSS and foster care in our state with the true intent of caring for South Carolinian families and children; a stop order on embracing others isn’t necessary. Partnerships, not partisanship, will raise humanity as the tide, which raises all ships. About the writers … McCorkle (far left) is an educator and immigration advocate. Davis is a pastor and educator from Summerville.

he pandemic-prompted closure of several beloved restaurants last year shrunk on-premises wine consumption, simultaneously leading to an increase in retail sales, which shouldn’t come as a surprise — as folks were panicpurchasing toilet paper, they were also stocking up on wine. But, that initial spring 2020 surge doesn’t tell the whole story, especially here in Charleston. Twelve months later, wine club memberships are on the rise, retail shops are becoming more adept at using social media marketing and at-home diners are finding ways to incorporate wine into their social-distanced dinner parties. “Early on, there was this massive shift. Especially in Charleston and places along the coast, we saw this huge drop-off in wine sales from anything on-premises,” said Marie Stitt, sales manager at Grassroots Wine, a local wholesaler. “What that has meant is, we’ll see a lot of wine that is being purchased that’s sub$20 and then the big jump to the very expensive wines. That mid-range price point was a Stitt sweet spot on the restaurant list.” Edmund’s Oast Exchange general manager Sarah O’Kelley noticed a similar trend at her Morrison Drive wine bar and retail shop. “The theme of the year was that people are still sticking to budget friendly wines,” she said. “That allows people to explore categories you might not have thought of.”

“Of course, retail sales were up in April and May — people were in panic mode,” O’Kelley added. “We saw a leveling out over the summer to more realistic numbers. It’s definitely still up, and I think people in this town specifically have heard the call that if you want to see a local business after this, you have to support them.” Local wine lovers aren’t just buying more — they’re more curious about what they’re drinking, O’Kelley said. The Exchange’s wine club has doubled in size in the last year, and O’Kelley’s “Somm School,” which went virtual due to the pandemic, has been a hit. “I was overwhelmed by the response to the Virtual Somm School — they’re very engaged,” she said. “I genuinely felt like people were kind of depressed looking at winter and knowing that it wouldn’t be that different than the rest of 2020. I figured people were really looking for something to look forward to.” Graft Wine Shop is engaging customers with its email newsletters, a platform owners Femi Oyediran and Miles White would have never thought of utilizing pre-pandemic. “Miles and I kind of talk about how we don’t really read newsletters, so I didn’t have a lot of hope. But, it was really surprising to see that we’re in the minority,” said Oyediran, adding that the pandemic gave them the time to spiff up Graft’s website. “We try to make sure there’s a balance of it being informative and being a pleasure to read.” In one recent newsletter, Oyediran and White raved about a French syrah wine they call a “dynamic gem.” “If you can manage to pull your nose away from the glass after popping it, you’ll appreciate the juicy black fruit, layers of savory aromatics, violets, alluring minerality, and gorgeous acidity,” wrote Oyediran and White. “So many darn uses for this wine, but I’ll be rocking this out with a burger on the grill this weekend for sure.” “I think we handle the newsletter like we handle the social media. Nobody wants to read a newsletter about wines they can’t afford or won’t drink,” White said. “When you put a little humor and lightheartedness in it, you can kind of disarm people. A lot of the immediate response we’re getting is that people are reading the whole thing, which speaks volumes.”

requests to Wheeler before he selects the wine. “There are rules — I would say they’re more like guidelines,” Wheeler said. “Classic pairings are always a good starting point. If you like the wine and you think it goes with it, drink it.” The partnership works, as evidenced by Brenner’s hectic schedule. By upping his wine knowledge, the private chef is making his at-home experience stand out at a time when this type of service is likely here to stay. “I feel like a chef’s got a better palate than I do to begin with,” Wheeler said. “He spent years training his palate to cook and taste the nuances, so it’s just about giving him a bump on the vocabulary and being able to relate his cooking experiences.”

Once locals grew tired of cooking three meals a day, seven days a week, they turned to private chefs to amp up their family’s at-home experience. Phil Brenner, a chef who spent time in the kitchens at FIG, the Obstinate Daughter and McCrady’s, made private dinners his full-time gig in April 2020, turning to his former boss — Vintage Lounge coowner Nathan Wheeler — to help out with the wine. “This was a side gig until around March, and in April 2020, it looked like I was going to be so busy that I wasn’t going to be able to do anything else,” said Brenner, who was running Vintage’s small plate-style food program at the time. The chef wanted to recreate a restaurant experience at his customers’ homes, so he asked Wheeler for help with wine pairings. “I’m a customer at Vintage, just like I am at Graft, and the people that work there can’t wait to get their wine in front of people,” Brenner said. “I figured that’s one more thing I could do that’s also part of the convenience experience.” “He’ll shoot me a menu, and I’ll look it over and see what’s been coming in, what’s been going out, and I’ll pull a couple bottles that I haven’t tasted in a while and just kind of play around with it,” Wheeler said. “The goal is to find stuff that, if I were eating the meal, that’s what I would want to drink with it.” Brenner serves four-course meals — the first three come with wine pairings, and the chef says there’s always wine leftover. A three-tier pricing model allows folks to spend between $25-$60 on bottles, and Brenner makes sure he relays customer

Nameless Numberhead has been performing at South of Broadway Theatre each Thursday

Nameless Numberhead improv group makes it up as it goes By Kevin Wilson

Arts 04.21.2021

Nameless Numberhead has made a name for itself as a touring sketch comedy team based here in Charleston. Though they have been invited to travel far and wide with their shows, the principal players (married couple Henry Riggs and Maari Suorsa) have been recognized locally for producing scores of independent performances all over town. During the pandemic, the group even started holding limitedcapacity shows in Park Circle and has comedy classes coming up next month. We recently caught up with this dynamic duo to discuss their decision to expand their production operation, now called the Rip Comedy Collective.

14

City Paper: How would you describe your overall aesthetic? And, which local venues have you worked in over the years? Henry Riggs: We’ve been touring and performing all over as a sketch comedy duo for about five years now, and the vibe has always been very scrappy, DIY. When we produce independent comedy shows in Charleston, it takes on that same persona. Very scrappy, very cobbled-together, but in the end, it’s always a damn good time. We’ve worked with a ton of venues all over town including Redux Art Center, Holy City Brewery, Pure Theatre, Charleston Music Hall, The Southern, Pulp, Theatre 99, Black Bear Studios, Park Circle Creative, South of Broadway Theatre, Charleston Jazz House, The Business Company and probably some I’m forgetting. Maari Suorsa: Henry and I are both

very last-minute people. We joke that we’d both turn in science projects that still had wet glue on them. I think it’s the pressure of the deadline that sparks the missing piece in our shows. We make decisions based on what we have available to us, what we can make, and what we can do without. This has allowed us to get extremely economical with our set-ups ... usually the elements people want to talk about. CP: Is there a particular aspect of your work that you are especially proud of? HR: Something unique about what we’ve been able to do in Charleston is that we encourage people to just try shit in comedy. Try to do it before you’re ready, before you’re an expert, and you will learn so much about it on the way. MS: I am extremely proud of being able to build a comedy collective here. I am a last-born [child], so I never expected to be carving my own path. I went to college and joined an established comedy group. I moved to Chicago and took classes and performed at an established comedy institution. When I moved to Charleston, it was a change of pace. I didn’t fall right into the established scene. I’m proud that we worked our asses off to create opportunities for ourselves, and I’m really excited to build something great where other people can jump in and develop skills and confidence. CP: Even in the midst of a global pandemic, you guys have stayed busy. What can you tell us about your newly

expanded offering of shows and classes? HR: Currently, we’re offering limited capacity shows every Thursday night through a partnership with South of Broadway Theatre Company. Right now, we’re featuring a group called Super Grouper, which is an improv team made up of various comedy teams around town. It’s Josh Christian, Lindsay Marie Collins, Stephan Hughes, Andy Livengood, Camille Lowman, Henry Riggs, Lily Stanton and Maari Suorsa. There’s a form we’re using called Armando, which is basically a storytelling format. Someone gets a word from the audience, and that word inspires a true story from one of the performers. The details and themes of that story inform a series of improv scenes. So, Super Grouper felt like the best place to start building this operation at South of Broadway because it was already folding in so many different groups from the improv community. Rip City and DigiRip Live, which by the way is coming up April 30, will be a variety format, meaning there’s a whole bunch of different stuff going on — original characters, sketches, videos and music videos. It’s the kitchen sink of comedy. Then, next month, we’re starting a run with a group called CHAMPS: Andy Livengood, Matthew Perry and myself. We also have a new session of classes on sale now: Intro to Improv, Creating Characters for Improv and Sketch Comedy Writing. Classes start in May and run for six weeks each.

The Gibbes Museum of Art is bringing two special exhibitions of Japanese art beginning April 30. The collections, Lasting Impressions: Japanese Prints from the Read-Simms Collection and Japonisme in Charleston: Alice Smith and Her Circle, will be on view in galleries eight and nine until Oct. 3. Lasting Impressions will showcase 60 rare prints amassed during the first part of the 20th century. It reflects the full range of popular print subjects by master Ukiyo-e artists of the Edo period. Japonisme in Charleston will explore the Japanese aesthetic in Charleston through the works of native artist Alice Ravenel Huger Smith and other Charleston artists who embraced the tenets and techniques of Japanese art. Both pieces will be accompanied by related programming throughout the year. For more information and a full listing of exhibitions and programming, visit gibbesmuseum.org. —Michael Smallwood

Summerville pizzeria dishing authentic Neapolitan pies

Mex 1 Coastal Cantina adding brunch Mex 1 Coastal Cantina started serving brunch April 18 with an offering featuring four types of huevos rancheros, five breakfast tacos, a Mexican burrito, churro doughnuts and plenty of brunch-themed cocktails to wash it all down. Brunch will be available every Sunday 10:30 a.m.-3 p.m., moving forward. The expanded brunch is a first for Mex 1, which has only served a limited brunch offering with a handful of options in the past. It’s hard to pick a favorite on the menu, but Mex 1 will pride itself on its huevos rancheros varieties like the huevos diablos, a creamy combination of queso, grilled shrimp and two fried eggs layered on top of a crisp tortilla. Patrons can also look for several new drink options from Mex 1 beverage director Morgan Hurley. The Mex 1 Coconut Hydrator, which is served in a fresh coconut, will be the star of the show. Mex 1 Coastal Cantina has three Charleston-area locations: Mount Pleasant, Sullivan’s Island and West Ashley. For more information, visit mex1coastalcantina.com. —Parker Milner

By: Parker Milner Ciro Damiano couldn’t find the classic Neapolitan-style pizzas he grew up eating in Naples, Italy, when his job relocated him to Charleston, but he found a solution to satiate his craving — he would learn to make the pies himself. After opening a food truck, Damiano moved into a Summerville brick-and-mortar named Antica Napoli, one of just three pizzerias in the state serving certified authentic Neapolitan-style pizza. “I always had friends that owned pizzerias, but I always had access, so I never had the need,” said Damiano, explaining why he never learned to make pizza growing up. “[I started making my own] when I moved to Charleston because it was something that I was missing so much.” Damiano left Italy for Seattle just over a decade ago while he was working as a manufacturing engineer in the aerospace field. That same job brought him to Charleston in 2013, which is when he started making pizzas in his spare time. “I had a friend of mine who had a little trailer, and he built a little wood-fired oven on it,” Damiano said. “He decided to get rid of it, so I bought the trailer from him and started to play with it at my house. I started to see that it was something people started to like.” After teaching himself the tricks to the Neapolitan pizza trade, Damiano purchased a food truck in 2016 and made Antica Napoli, which translates to “Ancient Naples,” his full-time gig. “With the food truck, I always had some limitations with it being a true certified Napoli restaurant,” Damiano said. “I always had it in my mind to be legitimate and a member of the True Neapolitan-style organization.” The 37-year-old organization Damiano referred to is called the True Neapolitan Pizza Association (Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana). The association’s “mission is to promote and protect in Italy and worldwide the true Neapolitan pizza,” according to its website. There are less than 900 AVPN-certified pizzerias worldwide and just three in South Carolina, with Antica Napoli being one of them. So how Damiano did Daminano earn this coveted certification? First, he opened a brick-and-mortar restaurant in Summerville before getting to work, honing his craft in the restaurant and in Italy, where he trained with a “master pizza chef.” In April 2019, Damiano won a “Vera Pizza Napoletana Olympic Games” gold medal in the under-35 category for non-AVPN pizzamakers. Antica Napoli received its certification in August 2020, joining APizza di Napoli in Aiken and Stone Pizza in Greenville as South Carolina’s lone representatives. What makes a true Neapolitan-style pizza? According to Damiano, it’s simple. “It’s really not a secret, [but] there are rules to make a Neapolitan pizza,” Damiano said. “That goes from the ingredients you use, the time that it takes to rise the dough, the way that you roll the balls, to stretching the pizza and tossing by hand.” According to the chef, these are the rules: tomatoes must be

Antica Napoli signature pizzas cook in 60-90 seconds San Marzano, mozzarella must be fresh and the main ingredients should come from the Campania region near Naples. Pizzas are cooked at around 900 degrees for 60-90 seconds, Damiano said. “It’s very simple ingredients, but with a very high quality. We make sure to advise the customers, especially when they are a new first timer, we make sure to let them know about the product and satisfy their expectation,” Damiano said. “When you go to grab a slice of pizza, you will have to fold it in half and then you have to fold the tip in so the ingredients don’t fall, because it’s a soft style of pizza.” Antica Napoli’s signature pizza is probably its simplest: the margherita. But, Damiano also caters to the masses with creative toppings like pimento cheese, ham, basil and fresh mozzarella, which are found on the “Carolina” pie. No matter the topping, Damiano feels honored to showcase the pride and joy of his Italian hometown in Summerville. “It’s that connection with my culture, my being. It kind of created that bridge between me and what I’m missing about my culture and my city,” Damiano said. “There’s no amount of money that will give that satisfaction.” For more information, visit anticanapolipizza.com.

Atlanta-based New Realm Brewing Company will expand to the Lowcountry, where it will open its fourth location in the space currently occupied by Dockery’s. The 11,000-square-foot Island Park Drive brewpub will be rebranded as New Realm in May, a press release said. New Realm will continue the live music lineup that was championed by its predecessor. In addition, the brewpub will retain “approximately 100 local employees in the Charleston market,” according to the release. The South Carolina location will be New Realm’s fourth when it opens in May, joining a forthcoming restaurant/ distillery in Savannah, flagship brewery/ restaurant in Atlanta and production brewery/restaurant in Virginia Beach.

Free Will Astrology ARIES (March 21-April 19): Blogger Emma Elsworthy wrote her “Self-Care List.” I’ll tell you a few of her 57 action items, in hopes of inspiring you to create your own list. The coming weeks will be a perfect phase to upgrade your focus on doing what makes you feel healthy and holy. Here are Elsworthy’s ideas: Get in the habit of cooking yourself a beautiful breakfast. Organize your room. Clean your mirror and laptop. Lie in the sunshine. Become the person you would ideally fall in love with. Walk with a straight posture. Stretch your body. Challenge yourself to not judge or ridicule anyone for a whole day. Have a luxurious shower with your favorite music playing. Remember your dreams. Fantasize about the life you would lead if failure didn’t exist. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Some traditional Buddhist monks sit on city streets in Asia with a “begging bowl” in front of them. It’s a clay or iron container they use to solicit money and food from passers-by who want to support them. Contemporary American poet Mariannne Boruch regards the begging bowl as a metaphor that helps her generate new poems. She adopts the attitude of the empty vessel, awaiting life’s instructions and inspiration to guide her creative inquiry. This enables her to “avoid too much self-obsession and navel-gazing” and be receptive — ”with no agenda besides the usual wonder and puzzlement.” I recommend the begging bowl approach to you as you launch the next phase of your journey, Taurus. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Gemini-born Paul Gauguin (1848–1903) is today regarded as an innovative and influential painter. But his early years provided few hints that he would ultimately become renowned. As a teenager, he attended naval preparatory school, and later he joined the French navy. At age 23, he became a stockbroker. Although he also began dabbling as a painter at that time, it wasn’t until the stock market crashed 11 years later that he made the decision to be a full-time painter. Is there a Gauguin-like turning point in your future, Gemini? If so, its early signs might show itself soon. It won’t be as dramatic or stressful as Gauguin’s, but I bet it will be quite galvinizing. CANCER (June 21-July 22): A research team found that some people pray for things they are reasonably sure God wouldn’t approve of. In a sense, they’re trying to trick the Creator into giving them goodies they’re not supposed to get. Do you ever do that? Try to bamboozle life into offering you blessings you’re not sure you deserve? The coming weeks will be a favorable time for you to dare such ploys. I’m not guaranteeing you’ll succeed, but the chances are much better than usual that you will. The universe is pretty relaxed and generous toward you right now. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): In 2013, the New Zealand government decided to rectify the fact that its two main islands had never been assigned formal names. At that time, it gave both an English and Māori-language moniker for each: North Island, or Te Ika-a-Māui, and South Island, or Te Waipounamu. In the spirit of correcting for oversights and neglect, and in accordance with current astrological omens, is there any action you’d like to take to make yourself more official or professional or established? The coming weeks will be a favorable time to do so. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Author Grant Morrison observes that our heads are “big enough to contain every god and devil there ever was. Big enough to hold the weight of oceans and the turning stars. Whole universes fit in there!” That’s why it’s so unfortunate, he says, if we fill up our “magical cabinet” with “little broken things, sad trinkets that we play with over and over.” In accordance with astrological potentials, Virgo, I exhort you to dispose of as many of those sad trinkets and little broken things as you can. Make lots of room to hold expansive visions and marvelous dreams and wondrous possibilities. It’s time to think bigger and feel wilder. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Libran author bell hooks (who doesn’t capitalize her name) has a nuanced perspective on the nature of our pain. She writes, “Contrary to what we may have been taught,

By Rob Brezsny

unnecessary and unchosen suffering wounds us, but need not scar us for life.” She acknowledges that unnecessary and unchosen suffering does indeed “mark us.” But we have the power to reshape and transform how it marks us. I think her wisdom will be useful for you to wield in the coming weeks. You now have extra power to reshape and transform the marks of your old pain. You probably won’t make it disappear entirely, but you can find new ways to make it serve you, teach you, and ennoble you. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): I love people who inspire me to surprise myself. I’m appreciative when an ally provides me with a friendly shock that moves me to question my habitual ways of thinking or doing things. I feel lucky when a person I like offers a compassionate critique that nudges me out of a rut I’ve been in. Here’s a secret: I don’t always wait around passively hoping events like these will happen. Now and then I actively seek them out. I encourage them. I ask for them. In the coming weeks, Scorpio, I invite you to be like me in this regard. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): “Where did last year’s lessons go?” asks Gillian Welch in her song “I Dream a Highway.” Now I’m posing the same question to you — just in time for the Remember Last Year’s Lessons Phase of your cycle. In my astrological opinion, it’s crucial for you to recollect and ruminate deeply on the breakdowns and breakthroughs you experienced in 2020; on every spiritual emergency and spiritual emergence you weathered; on all the scary trials you endured and all the sacred trails you trod. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Capricorn painter Henri Matisse had a revolutionary influence on 20th-century art, in part because of his raucous use of color. Early in his career, he belonged to the movement known as Fauvism, derived from the French term for “wild beasts.” During his final years, he invented a new genre very different from his previous work: large collages of brightly colored cut-out paper. The subject matter, according to critic Jed Perl, included “jungles, goddesses, oceans and the heavens,” and “ravishing signs and symbols” extracted from the depths of “Matisse’s luminosity.” I offer him as a role model for you, Capricorn, because I think it’s a perfect time to be, as Perl describes Matisse, both “a hard-nosed problemsolver and a feverish dreamer.” AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): “The guiding motto in the life of every natural philosopher should be, ‘Seek simplicity, but distrust it.’” Aquarian philosopher Alfred North Whitehead wrote that, and now I’m proposing that you use it as your motto in the coming weeks, even if you’re not a natural philosopher. Why? Because I suspect you’ll thrive by uncomplicating your life. You’ll enhance your well-being if you put greater trust in your instinctual nature and avoid getting lost in convoluted thoughts. On the other hand, it’s important not to plunge so deeply into minimalism that you become shallow, careless or unimaginative. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): In ancient Greek comic theater, there was a stock character known as the eiron. He was a crafty underdog who outwitted and triumphed over boastful egotists by pretending to be naive. Might I interest you in borrowing from that technique in the coming weeks? I think you’re most likely to be successful if you approach victory indirectly or sideways — and don’t get bogged down trying to forcefully coax skeptics and resisters. Be cagey, understated and strategic, Pisces. Let everyone think they’re smart and strong if it helps ensure that your vision of how things should be will win out in the end. Homework. I’m in the mood for you to give me predictions and past life readings. Send your psychic insights about my destiny. Truthrooster@gmail.com

occurrences, however, was when my older brother signed me out of middle school one day to take me to my first Grateful Dead concert. It was April 4, 1986. I’ll never forget that experience. As a guitarist, I had already gotten into Jerry Garcia, and I was listening to the Dead’s Reckoning album every night, trying to learn their songs. But, encountering those guys in person definitely had a major impact on my musicianship.

The Infamous Stringdusters is an American string ensemble featuring master musicians Andy Falco (guitar), Andy Hall (Dobro), Chris Pandolfi (banjo), Jeremy Garrett (fiddle) and Travis Book (bass). Although the group has effectively situated itself within the jam band scene since its 2006 emergence, individual members are no strangers to the world of traditional bluegrass. We recently caught CP: Chris Eldridge [of the Punch up with Falco to discuss his love for both Brothers] was the Stringdusters’ guitar Jerry Garcia and Bill Monroe, as well as player for a while. How did you end up the current tour that lands the ’Dusters back in the Lowcountry this week for a pod moving into that slot? AF: Well, we all knew each other from show at Charleston Pour House. various picking parties and had become City Paper: What were some of the friends.

They were a little older than people that CP: Since those days, your quintet were hippies but also too young to have has cultivated quite a reputation for been Beatniks. My parents loved all kinds being progressive. So, what made you of stuff, you know, New Orleans jazz, Doc Watson, The Beatles — everything.

I think that, as a band, our musical I’d say that one of the most important DNA is really varied, and that is what

gives us our unique sound. The common denominator among all of our influences, though, is bluegrass. Without bluegrass, the Infamous Stringdusters wouldn’t exist. And, bluegrass itself would not exist without Bill Monroe, so that’s how we landed on him as a focal point. CP: You’re back out on the road for a handful of long-overdue tour dates. What can we expect from the current live show? AF: You can expect a lot of excitement from the guys on stage. It’s been so long since we’ve played any material in front of an audience that it’s all going to be fresh for us. Throughout the tour, we’re probably going to be revisiting everything in the catalog. Plus, we have the classic Monroe tunes to try out now. And, we also recorded a proper Stringdusters LP of original songs in recent months, so we may pull some of that stuff out too. CP: The music business seems stranger than ever. In this day and age and at this point in your career, how do you measure success? AF: Just getting to make a living doing what we love and staying busy with work that means something to us — that’s success, man. The Infamous Stringdusters play at the Charleston Pour House April 25.

Workshop is rolling out a set of farewell concerts in honor of its closing this spring. The series, Listen on the Lawn, is a social-distanced weekly outdoor concert series produced by Tobin’s Market with help from Butcher & Bee. As if a full bar and five local food stalls like Sushi Wa and Sino Tacos are not reason enough to stop in, the events are a collective farewell to the food court that has given a platform for up-and-coming chefs and restaurateurs for the last four years. All ticket sales go directly to the bands, and shows are every Friday through April and May. Each $80 ticket includes admission for up to eight people and a 10-by-10-foot, open-air, socially distanced square. Catch local funk rockers Tomatoband April 23. Tobin’s is also teaming up with Commonhouse Aleworks for the monthly Third Thursday Concert Series. All the info is at citypapertickets.com. —Chelsea Grinstead

Sad Son debuts EP on Bandcamp Will Bragunier’s emo-rock project Sad Son happened by accident. “I do not think this project would have happened without the lockdown,” he told the City Paper. “Like everyone else, I had a really rough time with the isolation and uncertainty. I then picked up my guitar again as a way to pass the time. I ended up writing some new songs and dug up some old demos.” He sent the songs over to guitarist Aneel de Albuquerque and drummer Devin Vaughan, who had just opened up 100 Watt Studios in West Ashley. They invited him in to record and backed him with instrumentation. The self-titled result is six tracks of Fall Out Boy-esque angst, traveling through all the emotions that come with avoiding sleep, drinking to cope, losing the one you love and questioning the meaning of life. The short EP released on all streaming platforms April 5. —CG If you or your band is about to enter the studio, hit the road, or has a special gig coming up, reach out to us at chelsea@charlestoncitypaper.com.

Ryan Janeiro bounces from this to that in new solo release scene to scene. “Each song will have its own particular feel to it,” Janeiro said of the alternative R&B he weaves throughout the tracks, integrating influences from Outkast and Stevie Wonder. New Galaxy’s Stella Rae contributes vocals and local rapper Ray Deezy rhymes on “Teardrops,” complementing Janeiro’s words as he laments a lost lover. The listening experience ends with the song “This Cloud,” in which Janeiro is your flight attendant welcoming you: “Sit back, relax and enjoy the ride as we’re not here for a long time, but here for a good time.” Then he sends you off with the closing line, “Please gather all your belongings, but please be sure to leave all your worries and your cares behind.” “The need to escape is big for me — the grind of working all the time and feeling like you want to go elsewhere or experience other things and take some time to celebrate your life — that’s what inspires a lot of the songs,” he said. The pandemic gifted Janeiro that time to celebrate, along with the space to develop his art not only in the studio but also with live performances at Tobin’s Market in Jones’ side project, The Psycodelics. Building on Charleston’s appetite for creative collaborations, Janeiro hopes to get himself out there as a producer for others’ work. “My goal is to work with as many different artists as I can,” he said. —Chelsea Grinstead

Ryan Janeiro, originally from small-town Cross, S.C., has lived in Charleston most of his life. In 2010, he formed and fronted rhythm and blues group New Galaxy to compete in a competition hosted by 105.5 The Bridge. After winning the competition, New Galaxy gigged all over the state and gained solid footing on Charleston’s formidable wedding circuit, covering everything from Prince to 2Pac. Janeiro put out his first solo project, T.H.I.S., in 2012 with help from New Galaxy. Now, almost 10 years later, he is ready to release his second solo project, T.H.A.T., with help from the local crew in Little Bird on April 30. Janeiro’s debut EP features two brand-new tracks accompanied by songs developed in last year’s lockdown, pieced together from inklings he’s had over the last four or five years, he said. Janeiro created the final product in Little Bird’s home studio, a.k.a. Mega Hot Records. The members all had a hand in the project, with Jay Hurtt as lead engineer and instrumentation by bassist Ben Mossman, keyboardist Noah Jones, guitarist James Rubush and drummer Oleg Terentiev. The six tracks on the new EP bring you through a dream sequence as it jumps from
