Porter-Gaud grad Khris Middleton became an NBA champion last week, with his Milwaukee Bucks winning the league title at home, 105-98 against the Phoenix Suns. After starting the best-of-seven series behind two games, the Bucks won four straight and took home the championship. Middleton led the Bucks in average minutes played during the Finals and came in second in points per game, behind series MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo. Middleton, a 6-foot-7 forward, graduated from Porter Gaud in 2009 and attended Texas A&M University. In a few days, he’ll join Team USA in Tokyo, Japan, for the summer Olympic games, where he’ll represent the U.S. along with Bucks teammate Jrue Holiday and Suns guard Devin Booker. —Sam Spence

Coastal Community Foundation of South Carolina (CCF), a nonprofit that provides targeted funding to local groups, awarded $685,000 to 37 Black-led or Black-serving nonprofits in the Charleston area through a Facebook-funded grant aimed at bolstering Black communities. Black-led groups have historically been under-resourced, and direct assistance from philanthropic partners can start to remedy that kind of systemic discrimination, CCF said in a press release July 20. “The Foundation recognizes that we can address historic disparities by making intentional changes in policy, practice, and investment throughout all the foundation’s work,” CCF president and CEO Darrin Goss said in a press release. “The Facebook grant opportunity allows us to invest in leaders and organizations that tend to be more effective in providing services and support within their own communities based on trust and cultural understanding.” The initiative seeks to support ongoing work in areas such as arts, culture, civil rights, social action, community improvement, education and more. About 73% of the funding supported Black-led organizations. “Supporting Black leaders to do more of the good they’re already doing is a step forward, and we are grateful for corporate funders like Facebook who are investing in it,” Goss said in a press release. “We hope to see others regionally and nationally step in to do the same.” CCF awarded $62,250 to organizations that work in arts, culture and humanities; $92,000 to groups that work in civil rights, social action and advocacy; $157,000 to groups that work in community improvement; $188,500 to groups that work in education; and $185,250 to groups that work in human services. Organizations receiving funds include Avery Research Center, Friends of the Charleston County Library, Fresh Future Farm, Lowcountry Youth Service, Teachers’ Supply Closet, Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Lowcountry and more. Grantees range in size, from groups with budgets as large as $2.8 million and as small as $17,000.

Half of SC has at least one shot, still lags Fifty percent of all South Carolinians have received at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine, state health officials said Thursday. The milestone comes as the state still lags in total vaccinations, trailing all but 11 states as of last week, according to federal figures. And after dropping for months as vaccinations became available, COVID-19 cases are again on the rise in South Carolina as the delta variant works its way through the state, according to the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC). With 50.5% of the state, about 2.17 million people, having received at least one dose of vaccine, 44% of the state is fully vaccinated — at least two weeks out from their final dose of whichever vaccine they received. “This milestone is encouraging, and we thank everyone who made the decision to get vaccinated,” said Dr. Edward Simmer, DHEC’s director. “We are especially proud of our senior citizens, ages 65 and up, who account for more than a

third of our state’s vaccinations. But we still have a lot of work to do.” South Carolina lags most other states in terms of total population vaccinated. Just 11 states have vaccination percentages lower than South Carolina’s, according to the federal Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Note: Latest data from CDC appears to be slightly different from what’s provided by the state and could include a delay in reporting. Cases have jumped in recent weeks, DHEC data shows. After regularly reporting double-digit cases through mid-June, state health officials reported 664 confirmed cases of COVID-19 on Monday. DHEC officials noted between early June and mid-July, at least 150 cases came from state residents who attended summer camps. That could be a preview of what’s to come as the school year approaches and students begin interacting in person again, DHEC said. —Sam Spence

Charleston comp plan OK’d, changes coming The Charleston City Plan, a new 10-year comprehensive plan for Charleston that has been drafted with sweeping zoning changes, passed its first reading at a July 20 City Council meeting after an hourlong period of comments from the public and council members. “Generally speaking, we are very pleased with this plan. It’s clear that it’s taking a positive new direction, incorporating a lot of tough lessons learned over the last few decades,” Coastal Conservation League’s (CCL) communities and transportation senior project manager Betsy La Force said during the meeting. Suggested changes primarily revolve around rezoning the greater Charleston area based on elevation, hydrology and flood-risk data research. The recommendation came

from CCL and other environmental advocacy groups and the Dutch Dialogues study on sea-level rise in Charleston. However, La Force said certain areas of the plan, including zoning on Cainhoy, were inconsistent with that direction of thinking and put the area at risk. Another aspect to the city plan that some say is too narrow deals with affordable housing. Council member Ross Appel, during a two-hour workshop of the plan June 30, said while the city of Charleston leads in affordable housing programs, it is still falling short. Other council members added that even if the city were to meet its goal of programs and affordable housing units, the way they are utilized is equally as important. “If affordable communities become con-

centrations of lower income people, then we are defeating our purpose,” Council member William Gregorie said during the Council meeting. “A part of trying to incorporate affordable units throughout a community is a healthy thing, because it allows the coming together of all incomes in one neighborhood.” Council member Carol Jackson said that even though the vote was unanimous in granting the Charleston City Plan first reading, the council would continue to amend the document and take into consideration any and all comments and concerns the community has. The most recent version of the Charleston City Plan can be found at charlestoncityplan.com, and the City Council Meeting can be viewed on YouTube. —Skyler Baldwin

checks are denied, but they are an indication of buying interest. ​​“There are many other people out there like me that practice good, proper gun safety, but when we have an event that could have two polar opposite groups out there protesting, it just isn’t a good idea to have a weapon out there,” City Councilman Harry Griffin said during the July 19 meeting. “I hope that our citizens see that this is a common-sense approach to making sure that everybody stays safe while you exercise that freedom of assembly.” The changes were unanimously supported by the Public Safety Commission and passed first reading at a subsequent City Council meeting on July 20. During the meeting, only one community spoke to the changes, claiming that they were unconstitutional. And some advocates fear that the ordinance will only be disarming one side. Marcus McDonald, leader of Charleston Black Lives Matter, said that during protests he’s attended, counter-protesters have brandished or flashed firearms at him and his colleagues. And he said he isn’t confident in local law enforcement to keep everyone on an even playing field. “White people who are not involved in our protests — I think they’ll get away with it like they always do,” he said. “If it’s somebody on our side, they’re going to crack down on it ASAP. As far as enforcement, I think it’s going to be one-sided. The laws have never been applied fairly with protesting, and this is just going to be another instance of that.” McDonald said that having their rights restricted on carrying guns at such protests could even make them less safe, and when viewed in a historical context, could do more harm than good for their message. “A lot of people don’t want peace, they want submission,” he said. “That’s not what we’re about. We are about nonviolence, but we stand up for what we believe in. This is just one of those things where they’re really adamant about adding this legislation to make us more submissive, and we just aren’t going for it.” Those with concealed weapons permits would still be able to carry their weapons on them at public events, just not openly, Charleston Police chief Luther Reynolds explained. And with the way the city has defined a demonstration, modeling it after federal laws and regulations, a demonstration is any public event exercising one’s First Amendment rights, and it can be as large as possible or as small as a single person. City officials said they didn’t foresee any problems with these changes from event organizers, who they said previously asked for similar measures. Both meetings were recorded and can be watched on the City of Charleston’s YouTube channel.

Police found a series of graffiti sprayed on the wall of an elementary school reading, “Fuck this place.” Sounds like some salty middle schoolers coming back for vengeance. RUNNERS UP A backpack was found discarded on the side of a downtown street containing some unusual items: two gold teeth and a high-powered parabolic microphone. We suppose it could have been worse. Someone covered a downtown business’ door with stickers saying “Free The Boys,” police reported. It is unknown who the boys are, or where they are being held, but we aren’t sure a few stickers are going to help. During a field sobriety test, a West Ashley woman who was supposed to walk nine steps and turn around instead kept walking until police ran and caught up to her. The move was so subtle, even police were unsure if she was actually trying to escape.

Charleston-area districts are about to change. Pay attention. here’s a good chance your state, local or federal elected officials will be different the next time you cast a ballot if you live in the Charleston area. With three of the fastest-growing counties in the state, tri-county district lines will change once state legislators are done with the oncea-decade redistricting process that kicked off last week. The process sounds straightforward: Redraw fair state districts to ensure each has the same number of residents. But in a state where the Republican Party is looking to maintain control of the state legislature, power-obsessed politicians have the added challenge of ensuring easy elections for GOP candidates and minimizing the impact of generational changes eroding the party base. This is your chance to see the political machine at work: Over the next few weeks, state House and Senate staff members will travel the state to collect public input that will help determine where those lines will fall. Go to the meetings. Call your legislators. Insist that they be fair and not play politics with the process. When updated counts from the 2020 census are delivered to state lawmakers in the coming days, state-employed cartographers and statisticians will get to work figuring out where population growth shifted significantly since 2010. For some areas, 2019 figures show those shifts have been more pronounced. Along the coast, every county except Georgetown showed growth of at least 17%, while the state as a whole grew by 14.13%. Horry County has continued its monstrous expansion over the last decade, up a whopping

31.6%. Suburban counties around Charleston also experienced growth: 27.8% in Berkeley and 19.6% in Dorchester. Charleston County has seen a 17.5% increase in population. Charlotte’s suburbs also added more than 75,000 new residents in York (+24.3%) and Lancaster (+27.9%) counties. Wherever there’s been growth, district lines will have to change. It’s as simple as that. Around Charleston, look for changes to districts where Republicans have seen close competition from Democrats in recent years. District lines for state Sen. Sandy Senn and Rep. Lin Bennett could see tweaks, for example. Democrats who flipped Republican districts over the last decade — S.C. Reps. Krystle Matthews, J.A. Moore, Spencer Wetmore — may also draw the attention of GOP mapmakers looking to fiddle with the process. The 1st Congressional District will almost surely see changes as well. The addition of the Myrtle Beach-anchored 7th District in 2010 caused a bit of a shuffle for the state’s congressional delegation. Continued growth in Charleston, Horry and Beaufort counties means more changes that could affect 2022 races. You may have noticed no one has announced a major challenge to U.S. Rep. Nancy Mace yet — potential challengers are waiting on the maps. Charleston city and county council districts likely will see changes when all is said and done. But it all starts with changes at the state level. The Senate redistricting committee will make its only Charleston stop at 6:30 p.m., Aug. 10, at Trident Tech in North Charleston. House lawmakers will announce their meetings next week.

Reform state tax code to make it fairer

It’s hard to believe 15 years have passed since the publication of a policy book that suggested ways South Carolina’s tax code could be brought into the modern age.

Doing Better: Progressive Tax Reform for the American South said states should do two basic things to make taxes fairer to everyone — broaden the tax base and lower tax rates. Translated into English, the book by the Center for a Better South suggested removing special-interest sales tax exemptions, taxing more services, reducing corporate loopholes, modernizing income tax brackets and altering the property tax structure to make it better for everyone. Unfortunately, most of this work has been left undone in South Carolina. The state still loses more than $3 billion — yes, billion — in tax revenue every year because it has more than 80 special-interest sales tax exemptions. Corporate loopholes and incentives still give preferences to one set of businesses over others. Property taxes have been fiddled with to generate more, not fewer, inequities. So it comes as no surprise that a new report highlights how South Carolina has missed the mark on The state still creating a better taxing system. The report by the nonpartisan Tax Foundation essentially looks at what loses more than states do to create good climates for businesses. The $3 billion — yes, study, “Location Matters 2021: The State Tax Costs of Doing Business,” is a comparison of corporate tax billion — in tax costs among the 50 states. The bottom line: South revenue every year Carolina is ranked at a too-familiar place, the bottom. By comparison, tax reform in the Carolina to our because it has more north has created a dynamic business environment than 80 specialthat has made it one of the best states for business, according to the foundation. interest sales tax “North Carolina’s corporate income tax rate is now the nation’s lowest at 2.5% but that’s just one factor in exemptions. the state’s competitive transformation,” according to a Tax Foundation email touting the new report. “Since 2013, North Carolina also broadened tax bases and lowered rates, reducing corporate income, individual income and franchise tax burdens. These efforts have yielded the third best rank for new firms and fifth best for mature firms.” In other words, North Carolina did the kinds of things that economists have suggested to make the tax environment more equitable. South Carolina? Not so much. It ranked ninth from the bottom in the study’s business environment for new businesses and third from the bottom for mature businesses. For example, new distribution centers locating in South Carolina face a “heavy tax burden with an effective tax rate of 61.5%, just shy of double the median rate for this firm type nationwide,” the report said. Mature distribution centers face a 48.6% tax rate. A well-structured tax code should be neutral — meaning everyone should be treated the same, said Jared Walczak, a Tax Foundation vice president. About the Otherwise, “you’re creating inequities,” he said. “Both sides of the writer … aisle should be able to recognize that this is a problem — because Andy Brack is you then will have government picking the winners and losers” by publisher of awarding incentives to some businesses and ignoring others. Charleston “They should leave it to the marketplace,” he said, adding that City Paper. incentives, such as location bonuses or carve-outs to new businesses might attract a few businesses, but are hurtful to many existing and local businesses who can never qualify for similar treatment. South Carolina lawmakers need to dust off the Center’s book, review past tax reform studies by former Gov. Mark Sanford and a S.C. House study committee, then get to the real work of making a stronger tax code that is fairer, broadens the base and lowers rates.

What’s driving 10 years of growth for Charleston’s craft beer industry?

Feature 07.28.2021

By Parker Milner

tharleston’s craft beer industry continues to grow, with breweries consistently opening, and old standbys like Palmetto and Holy City Brewing expanding operations. In fact, the industry that accounts for $905 million in economic impact is affecting all levels of the state’s three-tier system, as breweries, distributors and retail shops small and large try to get a sip from the growing growler. Today, the tri-county area counts 36 breweries, according to South Carolina Brewers Guild executive director Brook Bristow. “If we go back to 2011, that was the year Westbrook and Holy City opened,” he said. “Before them, all we had were Coast and Palmetto.” The last decade’s growth is due in part to changes in state law that enabled breweries to sell and brew more beer. Perhaps the biggest shift came in 2017 when it became legal for brewpubs like Edmund’s Oast to distribute through wholesalers, a change that has helped newcomers grow fast. “Based on our run rate this year, we’re going to sell 6% out of our taproom — every-

thing else is out the door,” said Edmund’s Oast operations director Timmons Pettigrew, referring to the group’s King Street Extension brewery, which opened in 2017. “Our physical footprint here in the facility is large, so we always knew that distribution would have to be a huge part of the puzzle.” The 2017 shift alllowed local brewpubs — places with a permanent food service provider — to utilize the three-tier system. Essentially, Edmund’s Oast, for instance, must sell its beer to a wholesaler, who distributes it to retail shops for sale to consumers. According to Pettigrew and brewing director Cameron Read, Edmund’s Oast Brewing Co. has brewed over 100 beers since opening in 2017, and it now distributes in eight states. Producing 90 barrels of fruited sours each week — amounting to about 29,760 12-ounce cans — beers in this category are currently Edmund’s Oast Brewing Co.’s top seller. As a whole, the industry’s impact is up 28% from $650 million in 2017, and while 2020 was a down year for most independent breweries, the state is becoming an attractive investment opportunity for bigger brewers looking to focus on whole-

sale distribution. In November 2020, Mark Anthony Brewing — producer of White Claw Hard Seltzer — announced a $400 million investment to build a production facility in Richland County. Locally, the area’s oldest independent brewery got an infusion of outside cash from North Carolina-based Catawba Brewing Co., which purchased Palmetto in 2017. Catawba co-owner Billy Pyatt said the company “immediately put $1 million of equipment in” for a new brewhouse and tanks, with another $500,000 spent on a new canning line during the pandemic. “Today, there’s much Pyatt more beer being made in that building than was ever before,” Pyatt said. “We’ve become a real integral part of [the distributors’] business plan.”

Middle men

The local craft beer industry’s growth is being fueled by distribution, which makes sense, given only a limited number of people can stop by a single brewery taproom on a given day. For small wholesalers which handle distribution, it’s an uphill battle to compete with bigger operations deeply ingrained in the market. But Low Country Craft Distribution co-founder Greg Montieth told the City Paper there’s more market share now than in 2016 when the company opened with two breweries. “It was a lot of cold-calling at first, but we started having breweries reach out to us,” he said. “A big turning point for us was during the pandemic last year.” The shift occurred when Advintage Distributing, one of what Montieth described as “the big three” distributors, purchased Low Country Craft’s main

competitor. The other two widely known Southeast distributors, Southern Eagle Distributing and Lee Distributors, combine to represent a mix of smaller craft breweries like Palmetto and Commonhouse Aleworks as well as Anheuser-Busch, Molson Coors and other domestic and international conglomerates. State Sen. Sean Bennett of Summerville, who sponsored two 2017 bills that made it legal for breweries to sell liquor and participate in nonprofit events, says the power of those multinational brands can be felt within the S.C. market due to the three-tier system. “The distributors themselves get a lot of push from the big manufacturers that almost treat the distributors like the distributors sometimes treat small brewers,” said Bennett, recognizing that the threetier system is something the state is committed to for the foreseeable future. “We have distributors that have invested hundreds of millions of dollars over the years, and I recognize that it is an important piece of the economy.” Low Country Craft now services 30-plus breweries, most of which are the small businesses in danger of getting swallowed up by the three-tier system. “The demand is incredible. We had an explosion in breweries that we represent,” Montieth said, describing why smaller breweries turn to Low Country Craft. “Sometimes they get lost in the shuffle, just because they’re such an insignificant part of their overall business.” Southern Eagle and Crown Beverages merged in 2018 to form Southern Crown Partners, a company that distributes an average of 47,000 cases daily in South Carolina and Georgia. Southern Eagle is one of Anheuser-Busch’s oldest continual distributors in the country, a profitable partnership that helps fund other divisions of the company, craft brands director Matt Galentine told the City Paper.

Brew Cellar co-owner Ryan Hendrick carries several rotating seasonals

Hopped CONTINUED FROM PAGE 11

The wholesaler represents five craft breweries in Charleston, and Galentine’s division is broken into three groups: on-premises (bars/restaurants), grocery stores and convenience stores. When it comes to finding space for products at big box grocery stores, Galentine says it’s their job “to get all this beer out there, and then the customer makes the decision on what they want to purchase.” “Retailers are open to making room on the shelf. [Product placement] is decided at more of a corporate level within the chain, and then when they do that, that’s typically set for a year,” he said. For smaller retail shops like Park Circle’s Brew Cellar, the increase in breweries has led to more variety, allowing co-owner Ryan Hendrick to better serve regular customers. “There are a lot more options now, that’s for sure. The odd thing is we’ve gone to mostly seasonal stuff from the local breweries because they’re out there a lot more,” he said. “We can’t compete, necessarily, with grocery store pricing, so we specialize in rotating seasonals.” Each week, Hendrick receives emails from distributors “listing what is interesting.” Bigger breweries have representatives, but others do not, so Hendrick stays up to date by checking social media. “We tend to jump at whatever their newest releases are because those are more readily available than they were seven years ago,” Hendrick said. “It makes it more interesting for a shop like us that has repeat customers.”

Indigo Reef owners Chris and Nicole Ranere added a canning line to increase sales

Hopped CONTINUED FROM PAGE 12

Indigo Reef Brewing Company was relying on taproom sales at the start of 2020, but that all changed after the pandemic. After closing for 61 days, owners Chris and Nicole Ranere talked to their distributor, Low Country Craft, to arrange for a mobile canning line to come to the brewery to help sell more beer through distribution. “We worked with them to get those cans out, and it really worked well,” Chris Ranere said. “We found that it worked so well that we did it again, so we actually looked at canning lines of our own.” When the couple opened Indigo Reef in June 2019, a canning line was in their three-year plan, Chris Ranere said, but a Small Business Association loan helped them purchase one just before their first anniversary in 2020. Looking back to February 2020, Indigo Reef had $4,469 in sales from distribution — that number dipped to just $450 in April due to bar and restaurant closures. But once they added the canning line, the Raneres started to notice a shift. In March 2021, Indigo Reef made $12,500 from distribution, which now accounts for about 50% of sales, Chris Ranere said. But taproom sales are still key for small breweries like Charles Towne Fermentory, where 70% of the sales take place onpremises, founder Adam Goodwin said. Fermentory can produce between 120-130 barrels in a given month, about a third of what Edmund’s Oast produces over the same period in sours alone. “Selling it direct-to-consumer helps us handle the increase in cost of producing beer right,” Goodwin said. “We obviously have a small space, so we’re limited on what

we can actually produce here. That limitation for volume production creates more of a situation where we want to create this space so we’re attractive to the community.” Goodwin would like to see some legislative changes to give small breweries more control over sales and distribution.

“ 

Selling it direct-toconsumer helps us handle the increase in cost of producing beer right.” —Adam Goodwin

“As soon as a brewery sells the beer to the wholesaler, it becomes the property of the wholesaler, and at that point, we don’t have a whole lot of influence on where it goes,” Goodwin said. “I think if you create laws that are beneficial for small breweries, you’re going to make the state more attractive for out-of-market brands.” Fermentory’s West Ashley neighbor Frothy Beard Brewing Company is opening a second location in Bennett’s Summerville district, but the three-tier system means it must use a distributor to transfer beer between locations, Bennett said. While the senator views distributors as essential parts of the industry, he thinks some small changes are in order. “I look at it from a small business standpoint — the small business guys are the ones hindered by the distributors,” he said. “The problem is every time you try to do those small incremental things, it’s perceived by the distributors as your ultimate goal is to destroy their livelihood, and that’s not the case.”

The Sistine Chapel exhibit on display now at Festival Hall was inspired by a disappointing visit to the real thing

See Michelangelo’s famous frescoes without the flight to Rome

Arts 07.28.2021

Art history lovers are in for a treat at Festival Hall this summer. Through Sept. 26, the Beaufain Street venue is host to an exhibition showcasing Michelangelo’s renowned ceiling frescoes from the Sistine Chapel. Reproduced photographically and artfully displayed in their original sizes, the timeless masterpieces, including the Creation of Adam and The Last Judgment, can be viewed, studied and appreciated — all without having to travel internationally. The exhibition came about as a collaboration between SEE Attractions, Inc. and CBF Productions. “With sold-out openings in Minneapolis, Phoenix, Charlotte and Atlanta, we’re honored to bring one of Rome’s most iconic artworks to Charleston,” said Martin Biallas, CEO of Los Angelesbased SEE Attractions and producer of the exhibition. Biallas was inspired to create the Sistine Chapel exhibition for two reasons. The first: his somewhat unpleasant experience visiting the real thing. “First, you wait in a long line, and then once you get in, you have about 2,000 people in a 10,000-square-foot area. Everyone’s screaming and yelling, there’s about 100 guards, and if you even think

about taking a photo, they will confiscate your camera or phone. You are given 15 minutes, and then they usher you out, to get the next group in. The works are 60 feet in the air, and you can’t really see the amazing detail in the frescoes without a VIP tour — and a forklift.” Biallas launched SEE in 1997 as a way to bring Hollywood film and televi-

sion franchises to the public in the form of highly immersive “themed” traveling tours. After his visit to the Vatican City site, Biallas found himself wondering if he might be able to create experiences swapping entertainment for art. “If I am able to, why not bring these frescoes to the public to study, to look at, to enjoy for as long as they want, up close, and in the original size?” With a few challenges, Biallas and his team managed a way to license the images of the frescoes taken just after their 1980s restoration, and print them using a special material called Dekotex, which is used to mimic the texture of the frescoes. The second reason driving the creation of this exhibition, Biallas recounted, was the opportunity to create space for discussion on the meanings of the timeless works. “Once you have this in front of you, you want to understand the meanings of these frescoes — Michelangelo was hiding all kinds of secret messages and ideas behind each work,” said Martin, an apparent aficionado of the Italian master. An informative audio tour gives context for each scene, and as you explore the exhibition, it’s easy to become lost in the stories, CONTINUED ON PAGE 20

Tha God’s Honest Truth with Lenard ‘Charlamagne’ McKelvey will debut at 10 p.m. Sept. 17. Colbert is billed as a co-creator and executive producer on the new series, along with others. “I look forward to all the ways in which the fearless, peerless Charlamagne is going to change the game,” Colbert said in a press release. “My South Carolina brethren Stephen Colbert is the ultimate cosign in the late-night space and he wouldn’t cosign no bullshit!” Charlamagne said. —Sam Spence For daily updates from Charleston’s art world, check out the Culture section at charlestoncitypaper.com.

Agency works behind the scenes to get actors on screen By Kevin Young Michael Myers will be getting stabby again Oct. 15 in Rough House Pictures’ Halloween Kills, and if a few faces in the movie look familiar, you can thank Coastal Talent Agency. For two decades, the small agency has been supplying film and television productions with some of the Southeast’s best and brightest. Linda Eisen, owner of the agency, relishes her job. “Most basically, a talent agent connects actors with opportunities,” she told the City Paper. “We submit and promote talent for specific roles, advise and guide their career paths, negotiate contracts and work with clients to provide the perfect talent for their projects. Very importantly, we provide our actors with a barrier of protection and safety; personally, professionally and financially.” At the encouragement of the S.C. Film Commission to fill a need in the area’s growing film and television industry, Coastal Talent Agency was founded in 1995 by Paula McLane. Eisen was fortunate enough to meet and work with McLane shortly after moving to Charleston in 2005. “I learned that the wide range of jobs that I’d performed over the years, including acting, directing, producing, casting, arts education and administration, gave me a unique skill set wellsuited to the work of a talent agent.” When McLane was looking to retire in 2006, Eisen bought Coastal Talent. Since then, the agency’s popularity has grown, as has its roster of clients. Eisen has worked to adapt to the growing regional industry and technological changes while cultivating and retaining good working relationships with regional casting directors, producers and agencies. She happily credits Coastal Talent’s other agent, Pam Hays, who has worked in many capaciProvided ties, and heads up the company’s voice over division. When not poring over headshots, resumes and demo reels, Linda Eisen took over Coastal Talent Agency in 2006 the duo is holding interviews with prospective clients. “We are a board member for the Carolina Film looking for those who have a strong resume with on-camera Alliance, she said she’s seen the state lose credits, good training, professional materials and, most potential work time and again. importantly, natural talent and charisma that pops off of the “Unfortunately, the state has been turning screen,” Eisen said.

due in part to the reflective atmosphere in Festival Hall. The grand and ambient room was mostly dim, except for the reproductions, which almost seemed illuminated from within. Atmospheric music plays softly over speakers, and there is access to seating, tables and refreshments. Families, couples and strangers float through, discussing everything from the Old Testament to the artistic principle of contrapposto. “This is not just a Catholic thing. This is an art experience, a philosophical experience and also faith-related, in some way. There are atheists who come and view this as a historical experience,” said Biallas. The exhibition’s admission price of $19.40 is certainly lower than a flight to Rome. Charleston’s Festival Hall is the exact same size as the Sistine Chapel, Biallas said, enabling the team to display the reproductions in a similar order as they appear across the pond. When searching for a venue, Biallas looks for a “unique atmosphere” for the artwork. When they came across Festival Hall, the team knew it would be a good fit. But, Biallas encourages folks to see both, saying that this exhibition is merely a complement to the world-famous frescoes. The exhibition has been successful in its six-year run. “We’ve been running this now since 2015, with four units in the U.S., one in Europe and one in China.” The exhibition does seem to attract a diverse demographic: people young and old are flocking to see something that they might not ever see in person — and that kind of accessibility is important to Martin. “Because of the design of this exhibition, we can go to communities that wouldn’t be on a major exhibit schedule.”

Holy Smokes BBQ Festival announces November lineup Holy Smokes BBQ has announced the pitmaster lineup for the November festival at The Bend in North Charleston. Organized by Aaron Siegel and Taylor Garrigan of Home Team BBQ, Anthony DiBernardo of Swig & Swine and food writer Robert Moss, the event will bring the country’s top pitmasters to the Lowcountry for an all-you-can-eat shindig celebrating the various types and styles of barbecue. Tickets for the festival, which will benefit Hogs for a Cause, go on sale in August and will grant attendees access to barbecue from the 20-plus participating pitmasters. The Bend will be split into three “villages,” each of which celebrate a different century of American barbecue styles, Moss said. The 19th century village will feature whole hog pork, the 20th century village will celebrate Texas-style barbecue and the 21st century section will give pitmasters the chance to get creative with smoked meats.

Former FIG executive pastry chef Caitlin Schumacher is bringing breakfast burritos, sourdough bagels and other sweet treats to James Island with Girl Nextdough, a small batch baking food truck that will hit the road this summer. And, this isn’t just any old food truck — it’s the one another former FIG pastry chef made famous. “I can’t replace Scram, but I plan to do breakfast and very similar hours to what Melanie had,” said Schumacher, referring to Melanie Durant’s Scram food truck, which served breakfast Schumacher buns and other sweets at 1291 Folly Road from 2017-2019 before Durant relocated to New Jersey. “It’s all come full circle in a way.” But, using the Scram truck isn’t the only thing making this a full circle endeavor for Schumacher, whose only employee will be the man who taught her how to bake in the first place. “I grew up in North Carolina, and my dad is a big-time baker. He had me standing on a chair making pies and biscuits from when I was 6 years old,” Schumacher said. “My dad actually used to be one of Cynthia Wong’s baking assistants at Butcher & Bee, so he’s a pretty accomplished baker himself.” Schumacher got her start at James Beard Award-winning Durham restaurant Magnolia Grill, which closed in 2012, when she replied to an ad in the classifieds section of the local alt-weekly newspaper, Independent Weekly (now INDY Week). “I used to go pick that up from the post office and look through the classifieds. I saw an ad for an entry-level pastry assistant at Magnolia Grill. I took that job and pretty much instantly I was like ‘This is my life,’” said Schumacher, who met her husband Tori (chef de cuisine at The Ordinary) at Magnolia. Owner Karen Baker, who died from

Girl Nextdough will serve breakfast burritos, homemade sourdough, bagels, sweets and more once pastry chef Caitlin Schumacher finds a parking spot cancer in February 2019, quickly became an early mentor for Schumacher. “Just working with her and just that very first job having such an incredible teacher was very inspiring for me,” she said. After a stint out west in San Francisco, the Schumachers moved to Charleston in 2015. The North Carolina native says she learned a lot in her six years at FIG, where she took over for Durant less than a year after getting a job at the Meeting Street restaurant. “I was thrilled to work with Melanie. FIG has a culture that’s defined, and lessons and methods that just become part of you,” Schumacher said. “Six years later, I can say that if you work there for a number of years and buy into it, you’ll leave there better,

faster, stronger, more organized.” Although Schumacher did have a lot of creative freedom at FIG, the truck will allow her to be in complete control of all facets of the business. Once open, Girl Nextdough will serve a morning menu featuring breakfast burritos, homemade sourdough bagels, egg sandwiches, breakfast sweets and coffee, among other options. Look for Girl Nextdough to debut in August, Schumacher said. She hasn’t found a place to park the truck yet, but hopes to find a home off Folly Road on James Island. Sound familiar?

A Mexican eatery named Maya is moving into the 479 King St. space previously occupied by Macintosh, the Indigo Road Hospitality Group announced last week. Look for the restaurant to open for dinner and weekend brunch later this summer, the group said in a press release. Maya will be Indigo Road’s seventh full-service restaurant in Charleston. New Jersey native Brett Riley joins Maya as executive chef after working most recently at Casa Pública in the Williamsburg neighborhood in Brooklyn, New York. The restaurant will be “inspired by Mexico’s vibrant and diverse cuisine” and “celebrates the region’s uniquely bold flavors and traditional techniques through an authentic, ingredient driven menu with coastal influences,” according to the release. Maya will also have an “in-house masa program,” meaning fresh chips and tortillas will be prevalent on the menu. For updates, follow Maya on Instagram @mayarestaurantchs.—PM

Pawpaw seeds and other remnants have been found at archaeological sites of the earliest Native Americans, according to pawpaw enthusiast Vaughan Spearman

Understanding the tropical fruit native to South Carolina A 2-to-6-inch tropical fruit that’s native to South Carolina generally ripens in early August, but it rarely appears on Charleston restaurant menus, or at local Harris Teeters this time of year. But that doesn’t mean the pawpaw fruit — which loosely resembles a mango with its green exterior — isn’t a prized possession for folks throughout South Carolina. “The smell of a ripe pawpaw is really heavenly — one of the best smells I’ve smelled in my life,” said Vaughan Spearman, a pawpaw enthusiast who studied wildlife and forestry at the University of Georgia. Nowadays, he’s a stewardship forester for the South Carolina Forestry Commision. “I discovered that this native species to the United States was being used worldwide as a common fruit for farmers to bring to market, but it was forgotten about here. One thing I was amazed by was that I didn’t learn about them in school.” The pawpaw fruit, or asimina triloba, grows on a pawpaw tree, and pieces of the fruit usually fall when ripe. But, it’s not as simple as that for folks looking to harvest their own pawpaws, said Spearman, who studied permaculture on his own after graduating college. In order to grow fruit-producing trees, you’ll need a pawpaw patch, or a cluster of

multiple pawpaw trees. By having multiple seedlings (young plants that develop when seeds germinate), the plants are able to cross-pollinate, he said. “Some plants use that strategy to ensure that they’re not just breeding with themselves constantly. Since [pawpaw trees] are such an old type of tree, they’re pollinated by flies,” Spearman said. Historically, pawpaws have been utilized in the United States for hundreds of years, according to Andrew Moore’s book, Pawpaw: In Search of America’s Forgotten Fruit. “Pawpaw seeds and other remnants have been found at archeological sites of the earliest Native Americans,” Moore wrote. “The theory is that it was moved by the Native Americans up the river systems, so its range was extended,” said Gregory CONTINUED ON PAGE 25

Pawpaw CONTINUED FROM PAGE 23

Reighard, professor emeritus and visiting professor of horticulture at Clemson University, adding that you’ll find pawpaws from Florida all the way up to Canada and several places in between. “Even though it’s a tropical family, it’s adapted well.” The pawpaw was also an important source of nourishment for Black Americans in the 1800s, according to culinary historian Michael W. Twitty, who wrote the foreword in Moore’s book. “It was the pawpaw, cognate to species known to their ancestors in West Africa, that along with the persimmon, honey locust, and others gave them diversity in a diet built on nutritional monotony, and enabled them to nourish themselves on trails North to freedom,” Twitty wrote. “For enslaved African Americans, pawpaws were among the wild foods that supplemented meager provisions,” added Moore later in the book. With its historical importance and sweet, almost caramel-like flavor when ripe — some people say pawpaws taste like a cross between a mango and a banana — why is this native fruit not more widely available in South Carolina? According to Reighard, pawpaws are difficult to ship because of their short shelf life, and growing trees at home can be difficult. “The roots are very stubby, brittle, and

there’s very few root hairs, so it’s difficult for them to get established,” he said. But, he and Spearman have some tips for folks looking to grow pawpaw-producing trees at home. Spearman has two pawpaw patches, each of which produce fruit annually. Between the two, there are 15-20 trees, and he estimates 5-10 of them are “productive” — aka pawpaw-producing. Each pawpaw fruit has 4-10 seeds inside, and Spearman says the best way to establish a new patch is by planting these seeds in the ground 4-6 inches deep. Plant the trees just before winter, and the fruit will ripen in August … 5-6 years later, Spearman said. You’ll know the pawpaws are ripe when they fall from the tree or can be easily picked by pulling lightly. “Getting those fresh seeds is probably the best plan,” said Spearman, who gives his leftover seeds to friends. “Plant them before winter or keep them in the fridge for at least three months.” Reighard says pawpaw trees grow best in moist areas with thick vegetation, and he suggests mulching them heavily to help with the heat stress. “The tree should grow, but I know many people have had failures,” said Reighard, describing what makes pawpaws so unique. “If you compare it to other fruits, it’s a super fruit. It has very high minerals, amino acids, vitamins, and it’s also high in things like iron and copper. It’s really an amazing fruit.”

RECYCLE THIS PAPER

Free Will Astrology ARIES (March 21-April 19): What does it mean to feel real? Some people have a hard time doing that. They have such false ideas about who they are that they rarely feel real. Others are so distracted by trivial longings that they never have the luxury of settling into the exquisite at-home-ness of feeling real. For those fortunate enough to regularly experience this treasured blessing, feeling real isn’t a vague concept. It’s a vivid sensation of being conscious in one’s body. When we feel real, we respond spontaneously, enjoy playing, and exult in the privilege of being alive. After studying your astrological potentials, Aries, I suspect that you now have an enhanced capacity to feel real. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): When she was a child, author Valerie Andrews visited her secret sanctuary at sunset every day for seven years. She lay on the ground among birch trees and aromatic privet plants, feeling “the steady rhythmic heartbeat of the earth” as she basked in the fading light. I’d love for you to enjoy the revitalizing power of such a shrine. The decisions you have to make will become clear as you commune with what Andrews calls “a rootlike umbilicus to the dark core of the land.” Do you know of such a place? If not, I suggest you find or create one. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): I suspect that your immediate future will be a patchwork of evocative fragments. You may be both annoyed and entertained by a series of flashing attractions, or an array of pretty baubles, or a hubbub of tasks that all seem at least mildly worth doing. Chances are good that they will ultimately knit together into a crazy-quilt unity; they will weave into a pattern that makes unexpected sense. In the spirit of the spicy variety, I offer three quotes that may not seem useful to you yet, but will soon. 1. “Isn’t it possible that to desire a thing, to truly desire it, is a form of having it?” — Galway Kinnell 2. “It is not half so important to know as to feel.” — Rachel Carson 3. “Like all explorers, we are drawn to discover what’s out there without knowing yet if we have the courage to face it.” — Pema Chödrön CANCER (June 21-July 22): A Tumblr blogger named Cece writes, “The fact that you can soak bread in sugar, eggs, cinnamon and vanilla, then butter a pan and fry said bread to make a meal is really liberating.” I agree. And I share this with you in the hope of encouraging you to indulge in other commonplace actions that will make you feel spacious and uninhibited. You’re in a phase of your astrological cycle when you’ll thrive on doing day-to-day details that excite your lust for life. Enjoying the little things to the utmost will be an excellent strategy for success. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Leo poet Renée Ashley articulates a perspective I recommend you adopt. She writes, “I’m drawn to what flutters nebulously at the edges, at the corner of my eye — just outside my certain sight. I want to share in what I am routinely denied, or only suspect exists. I long for a glimpse of what is beginning to occur.” With her thoughts as inspiration, I advise you to be hungry for what you don’t know and haven’t perceived. Expand your curiosity so that it becomes wildly insatiable in its quest to uncover budding questions and raw truths at the peripheries of your awareness. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): “There are many things in your heart you can never tell to another person,” declared Virgo actor Greta Garbo (1905– 1990). “It is not right that you should tell them,” she concluded. “You cheapen yourself, the inside of yourself, when you tell them.” I presume Greta was being melodramatic. My attitude is the opposite of hers. If you find allies who listen well and who respect your vulnerability, you should relish telling them the secrets of your heart. To do so enriches you, deepens you, and adds soulful new meanings to your primary mysteries. The coming weeks will be a favorable time to seek this wise pleasure in abundance. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Now is a fantastic time to seek out effervescent socializing and convivial gatherings and festive celebrations. If you surround yourself with lively people, you’ll absorb the exact influences you need. May I suggest you

host a fun event? If you do, you could send out invitations that include the following allures: “At my get-together, the featured flavors will be strawberry chocolate and impossibly delicious. There’ll be magic vibrations and mysterious mood-enhancers. Liberating conversations will be strongly encouraged. Unpredictable revelations will be honored. If possible, please unload your fears and anxieties in a random parking lot before arriving.” SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Scorpio author Andrew Sean Greer writes, “As the Japanese will tell you, one can train a rose to grow through anything, to grow through a nautilus even, but it must be done with tenderness.” I think that’s a vivid metaphor for one of your chief tasks in the coming weeks, Scorpio: how to carefully nurture delicate, beautiful things as you coax them to ripen in ways that will bring out their sturdiness and resilience. I believe you now have an extra capacity for wielding love to help things bloom. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Suggested experiments to try soon: 1. Remember a past moment when you were touched with the sudden realization that you and a person you’d recently met were destined to fall in love. 2. Remember a past moment when you kissed someone for the first time. 3. Remember a past moment when someone told you they loved you for the first time or when you told someone you loved them for the first time. 4. Allow the feelings from the first three experiments to permeate your life for five days. See through the eyes of the person you were during those previous breakthroughs. Treat the whole world as expansively and expectantly as you did during those times. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Capricorn poet Kenneth Rexroth was shirtless as he strolled along a rural road. To his delightful amazement, a fritillary butterfly landed on his shoulder, fluttered away, landed again, fluttered away — performed this dance numerous times. Nothing like this had ever happened to him. Later he wrote, “I feel my flesh / Has suddenly become sweet / With a metamorphosis / Kept secret even from myself.” In the coming days, I’m expecting at least one comparable experience for you. Here’s your homework: What sweet metamorphoses may be underway within you — perhaps not yet having reached your conscious awareness? AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): “Each time we don’t say what we want to say, we’re dying.” Aquarian artist and singer Yoko Ono said that. I will add a further nuance: Each time we’re not aware of the feeling or experience or situation we want, we’re dying. And these will be key themes now that you’ve entered the “I KNOW WHAT I WANT AND I KNOW HOW TO ASK FOR IT” phase of your cycle. The most healing and vivifying thing you can do during the next six weeks is to be precise about your desires. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): In 1829, Piscean author Victor Hugo began work on his novel, The Hunchback of Notre Dame. He had other projects, though, and by September 1830, he had made scant progress on Hunchback. Growing impatient, his publisher demanded that he finish the manuscript by February 1831. In response, Hugo virtually barricaded himself in his room to compel himself to meet the deadline. He even locked his clothes in a closet to prevent himself from going out. For the next five months, he wore only a gray shawl as he toiled nonstop. His stratagem worked! I recommend you consider trying a somewhat less rigorous trick to enforce your self-discipline in the coming weeks. There’s no need to barricade yourself in your fortress. But I hope you will have fun taking stringent measures. Homework. Send descriptions of your wildly hopeful dreams for the future. newsletter@freewillastrology.com

All of that area is gonna be is with Ranky Tanky. But the Charleston open, and people can dance. So what better trumpeter and bandleader isn’t content to way to put that out there than having some rest on his success. great pop music?” Some might be surprised by Singleton’s Last year, he moved from the Gullahdip into mainstream pop, but working on inspired jazz of Ranky Tanky to a more different projects is part of who he is. contemporary, smooth-jazz sound with his “One of the things I try to do is be versasolo album, Date Night. Now, Singleton has shifted gears again tile,” he said. “I think a lot of people see me for The Evolution of Pop, his new show at as this jazz trumpet player around town, but the Charleston Music Hall. For this show, I like listening to pop music, R&B, gospel Singleton and his band (which includes Ranky — a wide variety.

album that is, you might have guessed, nothing like the last couple of projects he’s been involved with. “I also have a new album I’ve been working on,” he said. “We’re just about done. It’s gonna be more on the traditional jazz side, more like Miles Davis. We recorded the album a while ago, but I got another idea and wrote another song and another song. I kept adding on other tracks to it, but it’s finally done. It’s just a matter of coming up with a release date — probably sometime early- or mid-next month.” After that? Well, maybe another Ranky Tanky album, or another pop concert, or basically whatever Singleton enjoys doing. “That’s the key word: enjoy,” he said. “I enjoy all of these types of music. When you like different types of music, it makes it really easy to do all of these things and want to continue them. Look at people like Prince or Stevie Wonder — they recorded in any kind of genre they wanted, just because they loved music and loved entertaining. So my love for entertaining, just enjoying what I do, makes it easy to do all these different types of music. I’ll never stop doing it.” Charlton Singleton’s Evolution of Pop - 8 p.m. , Aug. 27. $22 (general), $17 (student). Charleston Music Hall, 37 John St. (843) 853-2252. charlestonmusichall.com

For Sam Brook, the DJ and electronic music community is a family. But it wasn’t always easy to connect with likeminded locals and book shows in the Charleston area. He founded Holy City Tech Collective to create a community of techno and house music-enthusiasts who could join together to play and host shows throughout the city. Holy City Tech Collective’s next show at the Purple Buffalo is July 31. The event will feature artist MUUS for his debut show in Charleston. He will be supported by Tuler, Brook, Jerm Jelly, Edwin S, Only Nick and Eclypse. —Kate Bryan

Barn Jam features folk stars Avi Jacob and Danielle Howle Awendaw Green’s Barn Jam musical showcase continues this summer at Sewee Outpost. The Aug. 4 show will feature a folk-tinged roster of performers: soulful singer-songwriter Avi Jacob will be returning to share the stage with renowned musician and Awendaw Green artist-in-residence Danielle Howle; Columbia-based singersongwriter Lola Grace; Dallas country band Brother and the Hayes; and The Wilson Springs Hotel, a folk-rock group hailing from Richmond, Virginia. “My songs are born from a really honest and painful place, and that kind of music in times like this gains meaning,” Jacob said. —KB

Flannel rock band Orange Doors releases “Dungeon” Local flannel rock band Orange Doors’ dropped new single, “Dungeon,” as part of the 2021 SceneSC Sampler playlist July 2. The new track, home-recorded by singer-songwriter Ian Russell and bassist Michael Ewens, showcases the band’s signature psychedelic grunge style, beginning with an acoustic riff that is quickly swallowed by a deluge of echoey vocals. The dark and dreamy sound calls to mind In Utero-era Nirvana, yet the unpredictable changes in tempo and rapid drum kicks are thoroughly modern. —KB

New rock band The Simplicity released “Laughter” ahead of upcoming album Dahlin’, recorded at Rialto Row with an ensemble of local musicians Underground and Stooges. Another song on the upcoming album, “War,” was one the band didn’t even rehearse before going into the studio. “It was more just a funny idea we had,” Bias said. While the new song, “Percy Street,” was shaped from Bias’ memories of living at a house venue called Makeout Reef. “We would throw shows with Crumb, Omni, Inner Wave — great bands on the come up that are on the radio now,” Bias said. “I look back on that as some of the fondest memories of my life, both good and bad. That song encompasses how I was feeling at the time, and how I still feel.” The July single, “Laughter,” is an experiment with mad howls, dissonant chords and furious picking — proving the band isn’t afraid of appearing unhinged. The guys appreciate being on the fringe in Charleston, which is known for its Americana — it gives The Simplicity that “fresh underdog kind of vibe,” Merritt said. “Now that the world has reset, this is not a bad place to be.” —Chelsea Grinstead

Frontman John Bias climbed on top of The Royal American bar as he sang, knocking things over and accepting a shot from the bartender. It was The Simplicity’s second show back post-pandemic to showcase songs off the upcoming album Dahlin’, a compilation of rock ballads and uptempo existentialism. The new single, “Laughter,” dropped July 23. The Simplicity, a three-piece rock band that also includes bassist Tommy Merritt and drummer Drew Lewis, relied on friends in the album’s recording process completed at Rialto Row with producer Wolfgang Zimmerman. “Without Wolfie’s insight, we would have come out with a totally different record,” Merritt said. Contributions include vocals, violin and percussion from Sally Mahon; Contour’s Tyler Sim on keys; Sam Jaeger on guitar; along with Brady Skylar of Daddy Beemer’s and Dan Fetterolf on guitar and violin. “We couldn’t have done it without them,” Lewis said. “Having the piano and the extra people in the room — all the ideas floating around — there was no way to hit a roadblock. There was so much energy in the room with everybody working together.” The seven songs on Dahlin’ were tracked in a single weekend. “We got lucky because most of the songs that made the record were written on the spot,” Merritt said. The spontaneity of the recording process underpins the obscure creativity each new song captures. Dahlin’s content came from both instantaneous composing and gradual development of lyrical themes, with influences ranging from modern and old school punk like Omni and Dead Boys, to more classic groups like The Band, Velvet

Making triathlons approachable for women A

ngi Klick of Mount Pleasant realized in 2015 that it wasn’t easy for women who wanted to participate in a triathlon to find local opportunities. The closest women’s-only event back then was in North Carolina. So she planned a Lowcountry triathlon to inspire women to participate in the swim-bike-run event. And She Tris soon was born. The company’s mission is to create a welcome and supportive triathlon environment for women and girls who want to compete in a triathlon, regardless of their level of experience. Their events are built to be welcoming, not intimidating. They offer approachable distances that participants of all physiques can accomplish.
