Charleston schools scramble to adapt to changing COVID regulations, situation

The Charleston County School District (CCSD) is continuing to adapt its safety protocols to keep students and faculty healthy during the COVID pandemic amid changing circumstances, tumultuous rulings from the statehouse and evolving recommendations from health care experts. District leaders said in a statement during an Aug. 23 school board meeting, in accordance with a state budget proviso that prohibits schools from mandating masks, they cannot enforce a mask requirement despite issuing one ahead of the start of school. As of Aug. 27, the CCSD requires face masks in school buildings, but will levy no penalty for students and faculty not in compliance with the requirement. S.C. Rep. Leon Stavrinakis, D-Charleston, said in a social media comment, the state proviso shouldn’t be used as an excuse for a lack of authority. “They can require masks,” he wrote. “I have shown them several ways to do it and avoid violating the proviso … Requiring masks is obviously just not important enough to them, taking this step to protect the health of their students and employees is obviously not a fight a majority of the board is willing to undertake. That is a sad reflection on CCSD.”

Attempts to reach Stavrinakis for further reaction were unsuccessful. The school board has called on state legislators to repeal the proviso and allow school leaders to enforce their mask mandate in order to “make the best local decision for the health and safety of our students and Stavrinakis employees,” according to the statement. The districtwide requirement stands, as of now, as a “strong and visible message” about where school leaders stand on the issue, according to the statement. But not everyone on the board agrees with the idea of only sending a message. “The proviso isn’t even a law, so to me, it can be circumvented,” said board member Erica Cokley. “I hate to say it, but this is just an excuse to not enforce what needs to be

“ 

done right now — this is an emergency. If you’re going to mandate something and not require compliance or have any type of penalty behind it, it might as well be an option.” And, Cokley said, some parents haven’t been known to choose the best option when it comes to pandemic safety. Cokley “If these parents were making the right decisions, we wouldn’t be in this mess in the first place,” she said. “I understand we have the freedom of choice, but when it comes to keeping yourself and others safe, then it’s just like any other law. They gave them free will, and nobody complied. Right now, to me, that choice of freedom is done and over with — people are dying.” CONTINUED ON PAGE 8

Calhoun Street project again denied by BAR A major mixed-use project proposed near the hospital district was again denied Aug. 25 when it landed back on the Board of Architectural Review (BAR) Large docket, months after having been denied in April. Plans for the proposed eight-story, 325unit apartment development at the corner of Calhoun Street and Halsey Boulevard that included ground-level retail and a 429-space parking deck was unanimously rejected April 14 due to its massive scale. Advocates said it would have felt out of place in the area, which includes high-rise medical facilities alongside more traditional peninsula architecture. Representatives from both the Preservation Society of Charleston (PSC) and the Historic Charleston Foundation (HCF)

participated in the public comment period of the meeting to denounce the proposal. “We continue to have significant concerns over the height, scale and mass of this project,” said HCF properties manager Justin Schwebler. “We thought the board and staff comments were perfectly to the point at the previous meeting … All parties seemed to be in agreement that the building was quoted as ‘inappropriately large.’ ” Schwebler said he and others believed the applicant, Davis Carter Scott and DCS Design, did not make significant enough changes to the proposal to address the board and staff comments, especially since they were primarily directed at the scale and mass of the building. —Skyler Baldwin

Disability rights groups challenge SC rule on school mask mandates Disability rights groups and parents of disabled children filed a federal lawsuit Aug. 24 challenging the South Carolina budget proviso that bans school districts from requiring masks in schools. The groups and parents are represented by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of South Carolina and other legal groups. The lawsuit argues that the enforcement of the proviso places students, teachers and staff, as well as their families, at risk. In addition, the suit claims, the measure particularly targets children with disabilities that put them at higher risk for severe illness, lingering disabilities, or even death due to COVID-19. “Students with health conditions or disabilities that make them vulnerable to COVID have a right to attend school without endangering their health or safety,”

Susan Mizner, director of the ACLU’s disability rights program, said in a press release. “Schools who have children with these conditions have legal obligations under federal disability rights laws.” The complaint lists state officials, including Gov. Henry McMaster, Attorney General Alan Wilson and Superintendent Molly Spearman, as well as school districts in Charleston, Greenville, Horry, Lexington, Oconee, Dorchester and Pickens counties. Charleston is among the districts that have passed mask requirements, triggering legal threats from Wilson. But as protesters yelled about the mandates outside the district’s Tuesday meeting, leaders backtracked, saying no requirements will be enforced in local schools. A full copy of the formal complaint can be read at aclusc.org. —Skyler Baldwin


The pressure is on state lawmakers to hold an emergency session and revise a law that prohibits mask mandates in schools as COVID-19 gets deadlier each day across the Palmetto State. The state Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) Thursday reported one of its deadliest days during the pandemic in the last six months. The agency reported 56 deaths, bringing the statewide death toll to 10,413. It is the most deaths for any single day in South Carolina since Feb. 19 when the agency reported 67 total deaths for the day. DHEC also reported 3,259 confirmed cases and 986 “probable” cases Thursday, bringing the total number of coronavirus cases to more than 707,000 throughout the state. But so far, despite calls by Democratic legislators and some Republican colleagues, state GOP leaders have not made a decision to call for a special session to deal with the possibility of a school mask mandate, which was banned in the current year budget, and other pandemic-related issues. Despite challenges and attacks, Republicans, including Gov. Henry McMaster, continue to oppose mask mandates in schools. Rep. Nathan Ballentine, R-Richland, said an emergency session is unlikely to work. “I do not see us revisiting the budget. That would take a two-thirds vote of both bodies, and any changes would also require that amount of support. Additionally, Gov. McMaster is likely to veto any efforts to allow districts to decide.” Ballentine said the General Assembly voted in the budget to give control to parents about their children’s health and safety. “Masks can still be worn to protect individuals and others. The science shows our kids are at the least risk — not no risk, but least risk. Teachers and other adults (and many kids) can be vaccinated to do their part.” Rep. Chip Huggins, R-Lexington, held a similar view. He said the problem can be handled with the same health care measures used by families for other illnesses, such as the flu or pneumonia. “Just stick to the basics,” he said. Senate President Harvey Peeler, R-Cherokee, did not respond to a call requesting an interview.

‘We’ve got to do something’

Other lawmakers say urgent action is needed. “It’s hard to admit you did something wrong,” Rep. Leon Howard, D-Richland, said of the failure to call a special session. CONTINUED ON PAGE 8

B  of the lotter Week

Police noticed an older man on a downtown bench drinking from a large glass bottle full of what they assumed was alcohol. After making eye contact with the man, a passing vehicle blocked the officers’ view, and when next they saw the man, the bottle was completely empty. Now, that’s a magic trick. RUNNERS UP A man whose phone was stolen described it as having a case depicting “a kilted gentleman.” This is perhaps simultaneously the most vague and specific description of a phone case we’ve ever seen. Officers noticed a jar labeled “Party Like a Pot Star” full of what was later determined to be marijuana in the backseat of a car. Party pothead’s in the big house tonight, or whatever that band from the 2000s said. Police described a potential suspect detailed in a police report as “balding,” which is probably accurate, but damn.

CCSD spokesman Andrew Pruitt referred back to the Aug. 27 statement on behalf of the district when asked to comment further. The state Department of Education announced Aug. 26 it will again enforce a mask mandate on school buses, a reversal from the sweeping ban on mandates previously issued. “It has become apparent based on COVID-19 data being reported by schools along with increasing levels of the highly transmissible delta variant in local communities, that more protective measures are needed to lower the risk of virus transmission and keep our schools open and operating as safely as possible,” the department said in a letter to school leaders across the state. However, the letter also states no student should be denied transportation if they do not comply with the requirement, a line drawing criticism from some for being unenforceable. CCSD is also in line with guidance from the Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) when it comes to quarantine procedures. CCSD requires a 10-day quarantine following close contact with an individual who tests positive for COVID-19. Nearly 500 close-contact quarantines had been reported as of the board’s Aug.

23 meeting, less than a week following the start of school. And as of Aug. 31, CCSD reported a total of 731 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in students and staff. Dozens of parents and other community members came in person to the meeting to denounce the mask requirement and quarantine policies, saying that the measures negatively impact the learning of students. Comments ranged from the tame — demanding the decision to mask be left up to parents — to more extreme, comparing mask mandates to enslavement and reading of biblical scripture. “Schools are monitoring attendance tightly in these first few days, reaching out to families and doing home visits so we can get more kids back in school,” chief academic officer Karolyn Belcher said during the Aug. Belcher 23 meeting. “That has been a top priority.” Some schools across the state have already been forced to go into full virtual learning due to the high volume of COVID-19-related absences, including Early College High School (ECHS), in Charleston. Administrators with ECHS were unable to be reached for comment prior to publication.

Session CONTINUED FROM PAGE 7

“But people are living in danger.” Howard is chairman of the House Medical, Military, Public and Municipal Affairs Committee. Howard said he couldn’t comprehend why his fellow lawmakers would oppose supporting such an important health problem. “This is not a political issue,” he told Statehouse Report, City Paper’s sister publication, though more Democrats than Republicans appear to favor mask mandates. Meanwhile recently, state Sens. Brad Hutto, D-Orangeburg, Ronnie Sabb, D-Williamsburg, Luke Rankin, R-Horry, and Sandy Senn, R-Charleston, recently wrote a letter asking Peeler to call a special session as COVID-19 cases rise. The senators say in the letter, “experts believe the spread of COVID-19 will explode” and that more than 1,000 doctors and pediatricians in the state have asked senators to return to session to reconsider the ban on masks in schools. While some may view mask rules as a violation of “personal liberty,” Hutto in an interview said it boils down to normal safety precautions, such as seatbelts in a car. The legislature must reconvene as soon as possible to address an ever-worsening pandemic, he said, adding “We’ve

got to do something.” Senn told Statehouse Report that she sees the problem as a “home rule” issue. She said local governments, not the state, should make such decisions based on their own particular situation.

DHEC also pushing on mask mandates

Another push for masks is coming from DHEC. With COVID-19 cases spiking in schools statewide, the board of South Carolina’s health agency last Friday instructed its director and chairman to contact state lawmakers to urge them to revise the law passed earlier this year that prohibits mask mandates in schools. During the meeting, state epidemiologist Dr. Linda Bell and DHEC public health director Dr. Brannon Traxler, laid out the argument for mask mandates in schools. The doctors noted the science shows having all people in schools wearing masks will protect students’ health and give them the best chance to succeed academically and socially. The legislature will meet in a special session, probably in September, to discuss budget issues and redistricting. Discussion of the mask mandate ban could surface during that session. The legislature will not convene again until the 2022 session in January. —Al Dozier

Make development cranes work for citizens T

Views 09.01.2021

here are two basic ways to look at the score of cranes on the Holy City’s skyline: They’re solid evidence of an economic boom that continues to pump in money. Or they’re a blight that litters the horizon and is sucking the uniqueness out of a Charleston that attracts millions of visitors a year. Most people probably hold both views, but we worry the overdevelopment of Charleston’s peninsula is creating long-term problems that will have to be dealt with constantly: overcrowding, more traffic, increased congestion, more flooding and even crappier roads. Bottom line: All of these cranes portend so many changes to Charleston that they are upsetting the balance between having a charming place that attracts visitors and residents to becoming another concrete jungle. These cranes are developmental canaries, and we need to be wary. Charleston City Council needs to take action and figure out some way to rein in the flock of soaring steel cranes. In a city that has seen a Black exodus of homeowners due to gentrification, it is time to stanch the flow of Charleston’s diverse peoples by doing something innovative. We’ve suggested a crane registration fee on the bigcity developers who come in with gobs of cash and zip out without experiencing the damage they do with their concrete alleyways of buildings. Then, that money could be flipped to help provide affordable housing to help Charleston’s working class live closer to their jobs. Think of the benefits of more police, firefighters, teachers, cleaners and cooks living in town, instead of spending hours in traffic. We’re told the mayor is now briefed on the crane count by city officials, who also are gathering information to figure out how to calculate the direct and indirect costs of cranes to city taxpayers

10

and tie any fees to that number, per state law. These are great first baby steps. Now, let’s demand that our city council members make something happen — sooner than later. As you can see, there are more cranes now than there were in April when we started the crane count: Week of Aug. 30....................... 21 cranes in 11 locations (+2) Week of Aug. 23....................... 19 cranes in 10 locations (-1) Week of Aug. 16....................... 20 cranes in 10 locations (-2) Week of Aug. 9......................... 22 cranes in 10 sites (-1) Week of Aug. 2......................... 23 cranes in 10 locations (+0) Week of July 26........................ 23 cranes in 10 worksites (+0) Week of July 19........................ 23 cranes in 10 locations (+3) Week of July 12........................ 20 cranes in 10 sites (+1) Week of July 5.......................... 19 cranes in nine locations (+0) Week of June 28...................... 19 cranes in nine worksites (+1) Week of June 21....................... 18 cranes in nine locations (+0) Week of June 14....................... 18 cranes in nine sites (+0) Week of June 7......................... 18 cranes in nine locations (+1) Week of May 31....................... 17 cranes in nine worksites (+0) Week of May 24....................... 17 cranes in nine locations (-2) Week of May 17........................ 19 cranes in nine sites (+0) Week of May 10....................... 19 cranes in nine sites (+0) Week of May 3.......................... 19 cranes in nine locations (+2) Week of April 26...................... 17 cranes in eight locations Possible next project: A weekly bounce report to illustrate how Charleston’s streets are a complete mess.

OPINION

No debating, simple steps will help end this pandemic By Jason Sakran Anger and disappointment comes in many forms and washes over us for a variety of reasons. For the better part of 18 months, all of us have been wrestling with COVID in some capacity or another. Through it all, I have been reluctant to allow anger, or even anxiety, to cloud my judgement or negatively impact how I view others in our community. I have tried to understand those who choose not to get vaccinated, and I have routinely attempted to understand the arguments of those who choose not to wear a mask. I have heard all the arguments, the mincing of words, the overly dramatic proclamations, the threats, the shouting and even the hexes. I have heard the claims that mask-wearing is unconstitutional or that the vaccine is ineffective, tainted or part of a larger government conspiracy to control us. I’ve sat in public meeting after public meeting and listened to adults who, 18 months ago, had literally no idea what COVID even was, yet today they are infectious disease experts, conspiracy theorists, constitutional scholars and child psychologists. Today was the day true anger and disappointment set in for me. While listening to the morning

news, I heard a 46-year-old veteran died while waiting for treatment in Bellville, Texas. He served our country honorably, fought enemies abroad, yet he lay vulnerable in a U.S. hospital with lifethreatening gallstone pancreatitis because hospitals in and around Bellville are so overwhelmed with COVID patients, there are no available beds. After seven hours, and several calls to other hospitals in the Houston area, it was too late. Daniel Wilkinson, who served two tours in Afghanistan and was awarded a Purple Heart, died before he could get the care he needed. He should not have died the way he did in the manner in which he did. We can debate whether masks work or whether vaccines are safe, but we cannot debate the obvious — COVID numbers are increasing. We cannot debate that our frontline medical professionals are overwhelmed. We cannot debate that some who oppose mask-wearing or the vaccine have verbally abused, spit on, pushed and shoved medical professionals in our very own city. The emergency rooms here in Charleston are not at capacity yet, but that doesn’t mean we don’t have a moral and patriotic responsibility to try and keep all Americans safe regardless of where they live. Being asked to wear a face mask during a pandemic is not having one’s rights trampled on by tyrannical politicians. Wearing a face mask during

We can debate whether masks work or whether vaccines are safe, but we cannot debate the obvious, which is that COVID numbers are increasing.

a pandemic makes you a member of a civil society. Do you want to help keep small businesses open and operating? Do you want to protect your child’s teacher and classmates? Do you want to get back to a normal life where we don’t have to constantly worry about masks and vaccines? We can accomplish all of it by getting vaccinated and wearing a mask. If the story about a dying veteran lying helpless in a U.S. hospital waiting for treatment doesn’t give you pause, or doesn’t stir something within you, then we ought to rethink terms like patriotism, selflessness, community and sacrifice when we describe American exceptionalism. Let’s not mince words: Daniel Wilkinson died because politicians and some in the community have chosen to ignore reality in favor of their own personal self interests. When we look back at this time in our history, how will historians judge us? Did we rise to the occasion as Americans or did we get distracted by our personal feelings about a pandemic that is clearly bigger than all of us?

IT’S (DEFINITELY, MAYBE) TIME TO LIGHT THE LIGHTS Charleston rebuilds its arts scene in the shadow of 2020 By Michael Smallwood

As 2020 turned from spring to summer to fall and the pandemic raged on, a lot of realities confronted the arts community in Charleston. Shelter-in-place orders and limitations on large gatherings essentially signaled the closing of all arts organizations for the foreseeable future last March. As American politicians argued over an avalanche of restaurant and corporate relief, arts groups suffered. Museum galleries like The Gibbes were able to remain open with reduced attendance and masks in place, but live theater needs a cast of performers and an audience. The sudden and prolonged loss of audiences and regular patrons has financially challenged arts organizations nationwide. Some theaters, like PURE, were able to shift entirely to virtual performances for the bulk of the season, but many found digital alternatives lacking. “Unfortunately, we were not very successful in pivoting to online,” said Brian Porter, executive director of Footlight Players. “It’s just not what we do.” Audiences and performers alike have found the virtual arts trend difficult to fully embrace over the past year. The success of Spoleto Festival USA earlier this year, and the relatively lukewarm reception to its virtual offerings, like The Journey, marked a clear signal people were ready to return to performing arts spaces, and CONTINUED ON PAGE 14

Charleston’s performing arts scene has been mostly dark for 18 months. Babies born the day the pandemic kicked off and theaters postponed performances are crawling right about now. The entire 2020-2021 season came and went, and as fall arrives and the community starts planning its triumphant return, the ghosts of 2020 hovers over preparations like old Hamlet.


Enjoy 27 galleries filled with 5000 years of global art.

October 9, 2021 – January 17, 2022 30 Americans features an incredible “Who’s Who” list from among the most acclaimed Black artists of our time, including Nick Cave, Glenn Ligon, Lorna Simpson, Mickalene Thomas, and Kehinde Wiley. The work on view offers an intersectional series of varying gender, sexuality, and class perspectives. Organized by the Rubell Museum.

Anila Quayyum Agha Let a Million Flowers Bloom February 12 – May 29, 2022 Pakistani American artist Anila Quayyum Agha’s works cast their images onto the walls around them like lanterns and create patterns that dance over visitors. The works explore notions of masculine and feminine, public and private, religious and secular, and particularly space and refuge, taking on the pain of losing one’s home and agency and the hope of establishing them both anew.

Rodin: Contemplation and Dreams

Selections from the Iris & B. Gerald Cantor Collections

February 19 – May 15, 2022 Auguste Rodin saw the body as an envelope for the spirit, and the flickering surfaces of his modeled forms express this tension. His sculptures’ poses, directly inspired by Michelangelo’s powerful marble works, capture the human condition in all its elation and anguish. Visitors will immerse themselves in more than 40 examples of the artist’s bronzework.

those spaces are ready to receive them. Still, the pandemic remains one of the biggest questions hanging over that return. Eighteen months after shows were initially postponed and closed, cases in South Carolina continue to rise. As the delta variant brings back debate over city mask mandates and hospitals again treat waves of patients, it looks like masks will be a part of the arts for the foreseeable future. Some spaces, like Charleston Stage and College of Charleston, recommend audiences wear masks while in the theater. Dance Conservatory of Charleston is installing new air purification systems into its spaces. Many companies are reporting fully vaccinated staff and casts. And the city currently will allow theaters to operate at full-capacity. It’s looking like audiences will (definitely, maybe) get to see the faces of performers, at least, when they return to the theaters. The last year has also shaped what will be on those stages this fall. Queen Street’s Matilda, which should have opened in spring 2020, will finally bow this December. Charleston Stage’s Bright Star closed early in March 2020 because of shelter-in-place orders and will finally reopen this month to continue its run. Village Playhouse will produce outdoor musicals starting with The Legendary Dolly P this September, but has moved its indoor, non-musical productions to 2022 because of the delta variant spike. Palmetto City Ballet won’t open its season

Rebecca Hall’s Passing will be an exclusive theatrical screening at The Gibbes

until October, after the expected height of the current spike. Dance Lab recently had to reschedule a show because a dancer tested positive for the virus on the first day of performances. “I am hesitant to invest a bunch of time, energy and money into a season that may be hit hard again with this virus,” said owner Jenny Broe. “Terror might be a better word,” mused Julian Wiles, founder and producing artistic director of Charleston Stage. “We have meetings every couple of days about contingency plans. What would we do if it gets worse? I Wiles mean, four weeks ago we thought we were kind of out of the woods. So yeah, we’re monitoring it all the time and trying to listen to the CDC. We want people to be safe and comfortable, and we’ll adjust as we need to, if we have to again. But we’re hoping we’ll be able to come back. And audiences seem ready.” All the precautions and preparations are in service of bringing patrons a packed fall season. Charleston Stage, PURE Theatre, Footlight Players, College of Charleston, Palmetto City Ballet and Flowertown Players are all planning multiple offerings between now and the end of the year. The Gibbes, which has been going strong all year, still has a full slate of exhibits and films, like the exclusive theatrical showing of Rebecca Hall’s Passing. PURE Theatre won’t actually return to its Cannon Street Arts Center home until November’s Little Gem, but the company won’t sit idle. PURE will open its season on the Dock Street stage this September with The Absolute Brightness of Leonard Pelkey, as well as introducing a new series called Fall Nights that will see the returns of Constellations and Buyer and Cellar, both presented on Sullivan’s Island.

Artifacts Gaillard, Music Hall will require COVID-19 vaccines or proof of negative test The Gaillard Center and Charleston Music Hall announced last week patrons will be required to show proof of a COVID-19 vaccine or a negative test result within 72 hours of attending a show at either venue. Both concert halls announced the new safety measures as S.C. COVID-19 case numbers reach their highest levels since the winter peak of the virus. Charleston County, as of Monday, had the highest vaccination rate in the state, at just over 60%. Statewide, 47% of residents have been vaccinated against the virus. The Gaillard Center will feature Bruce Hornsby, Audra McDonald and The Hip Hop Nutcracker on stage before the end of the year. The Music Hall will welcome Big Boi, Kenny G and Shakey Graves in the coming months. Other venues may have vaccine or test requirements that vary by artist, so be sure to check show information. —Sam Spence

Charleston Stage delays opening of Bright Star Charleston Stage will delay the opening of its 44th season. Bright Star, returning after closing early in 2020 due to the pandemic, was set to open this week, but it has been pushed back to Sept. 11 because of COVID cases amongst the production. Charleston Stage will be using the time to enhance COVID protocols for the run of the show. The company will now require audience members to provide either proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test result before entering the Dock Street Theatre for performances. Masks will also be required while in attendance at the Dock Street Theatre. Arrangements have been made for audiences who would rather stream the performances at home. Those virtual performances will be made available Sept. 18-26.

Pink Bellies owner Thai Phi says the restaurant’s Vietnamese food is “authentic to my experience”

Highly anticipated Pink Bellies opening dining room ‘soon’

Cuisine 09.01.2021

By Parker Milner

Pink Bellies stole Charleston’s heart with saucy bowls of garlic noodles and dumplings in 2013, and since announcing he would open a brick-and-mortar location in October 2019, owner Thai Phi has spent much of the last two years testing recipes before briefly opening for takeout-only inside his mysterious, plastic-wrapped King Street restaurant. That wrapping has been removed, and the time has (almost) come for Phi to open for indoor dining in a space where the chef placed a heavy emphasis on aesthetics, working through design elements with local architect firm Thomas and Denzinger. Phi gave the City Paper the inside scoop on what to expect at Pink Bellies, which the chef said will “open soon.” Inside the 595 King St. restaurant, which came to fruition after a successful Kickstarter campaign, you’ll find two distinct dining areas separated by a slightly raised floor. “[The left side] is about six inches higher. The architect was like, ‘Thai, this is a raised floor. It looks down on the kitchen, so when you’re in there, you’re performing,’” Phi said. This subtle design element is just one of several at Pink Bellies. Ceiling panels designed to muffle sound change colors —

from pink to orange or neon yellow — and bar seating facing the open kitchen is based on designs Phi found at ramen shops in Tokyo and Kyoto. “A lot of the bars in Japan are at the perfect height where there’s some sort of a barrier between the kitchen and the diner,” Phi said. “This one provides enough of a barrier that you still Phi feel very focused on the food. When you’re sitting here, you can feel the heat of the grill, you can hear the cooks talking, you can smell the food.” Phi and his small team will serve a few dishes from the takeout menu but most will be creations he’s been perfecting in his test kitchen. “One thing we really want to do is showcase Vietnamese food in a way that’s really authentic to my experience,” Phi said. “We’re really trying to hit a lot of different flavor profiles and textures.” For an example of this, look no further than Phi’s squid ink bánh xèo — a crispy crepe stuffed with Miss Paula’s shrimp, scallops and sliced pork belly. “Bánh means anything made with

Known for dive bar-style sandwiches, duck fat fries and a long list of craft beers, Tattooed Moose Park Circle will be located at 4845 Chateau Ave. in the North Charleston space that previously served as King of Pops’ headquarters and the studio of local artist Patch Whisky. Tattooed Moose has been a downtown mainstay since opening in 2010. The Kulicks later added a Johns Island location in 2015 and a Citadel Mall location in 2018, which closed in 2020. Tattooed Moose Park Circle is targeting a mid-November opening. For more information, visit tattooedmoose.com. —Parker Milner

wheat that you have in your hands,” said Phi, explaining that you place a torn piece of the crepe inside a lettuce wrap and eat with your hands. “Xèo is the sound the wok makes when it sizzles.” Phi was born in a Thailand refugee camp during his parents’ immigration to the United States from Vietnam. His family landed in San Francisco, later moving to Columbia where Phi attended the University of South Carolina. After earning a master’s degree in business from the College of Charleston, Phi launched Pink Bellies — first as a food truck, then later as a pop-up and stall at Workshop. Phi’s latest menu mock-up features 12 dinner dishes, including duck congee, pho xiao long bao, spicy lamb dumplings, snow crabs and his famed garlic noodles — “a Bay-area thing that we’ve adapted to Charleston,” Phi said. “Other dishes are inspired by my aunt’s kitchen and my grandma’s kitchen in Vietnam. Dishes that really you don’t see on any other menus — dishes that are only really present at someone’s house in Vietnam,” Phi said. “So our menu is kind of everywhere, but it’s based on my life.” His take on bun cha gio, a Vietnamese noodle dish, is directly influenced by his childhood. “That one is really important to me because growing up, my mom always had a garden growing. She would always roll egg rolls, keep them in the freezer and after a long day of work, she would come home and prepare this vermicelli noodle. [Then she would] grab herbs from the backyard, take the egg rolls, cut them up and you would just eat them together.” Pink Bellies’ cuisine is a mix of these classics and American interpretations of Vietnamese dishes, with many menu items based on bites Phi had while traveling. “Pink Bellies for me, it’s extremely friendly, inviting, unintimidating, and it’s almost vague to a point where you don’t know its Vietnamese food,” Phi said. “But once you get to eat our food, you’re like, ‘Man, I love the food, I didn’t know it was Vietnamese.’ The juxtaposition is kind of the theme of this entire story. I’m an immigrant, but I also grew up in America.” Once open, Pink Bellies will serve dinner Thursday-Sunday. Phi eventually plans to expand hours to include more days, lunch and a late-night service that extends past midnight Friday and Saturday. The chef says he’s excited for the next step in his journey, a milestone he knows wouldn’t be possible without the loyal fans who are awaiting the restaurant’s opening. “When we started [the Kickstarter], we didn’t know if it was going to be successful or not,” he said. “When people spend their hard-earned money to support something ... I’m not sure how to express how grateful I am for that.”

SUPPO R LOCAL T

Free Will Astrology ARIES (March 21-April 19): Aries poet Anna Kamienska wrote, “I’ve learned to value failed conversations, missed connections, confusions. What remains is what’s unsaid, what’s underneath. Understanding on another level of being.” In the coming weeks, I suggest you adopt her perspective as you evaluate both past and present experiences. You’re likely to find small treasures in what you’d assumed were wastelands. You may uncover inspiring clues in plot twists that initially frustrated you. Upon further examination, interludes you dismissed as unimportant or uninteresting could reveal valuable wrinkles. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): After studying your astrological omens, I’ve decided to offer you inspiration from the ancient Roman poet Catullus. I hope the extravagant spirit of his words will free you to be greedy for the delights of love and affection. Catullus wrote, “Give me a thousand kisses, then a hundred; then another thousand, then a second hundred; then yet another thousand.” I’ll add the following to Catullus’s appeal: Seek an abundance of endearing words, sweet favors and gifts, caresses and massages, help with your work, and fabulous orgasms. If there’s no one in your life to provide you with such blessings, give them to yourself. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Gemini author Elif Batuman writes that the Old Uzbek language was rich in expressions about crying. There were “words for wanting to cry and not being able to, for loudly crying like thunder in the clouds, for crying in gasps, for weeping inwardly or secretly, for crying ceaselessly in a high voice, for crying in hiccups, and for crying while uttering the sound ‘hay hay.’” I recommend all of these to you in the coming days, as well as others you might dream up. Why? It’s prime time to seek the invigorating release and renewal that come from shedding tears generated by deep and mysterious feelings. CANCER (June 21-July 22): A blogger named MythWoven imagines an “alternate universe where I literally go to school forever (for free) so I can learn about art and literature and history and languages for 100 years. No job skills. No credit requirements. No student loans. Just learning.” I have longings like hers. There’s an eternal student within me that wants to be endlessly surprised with exciting information about interesting subjects. I would love to be continually adding fresh skills and aptitudes to my repertoire. In the coming weeks, I will give free rein to that part of me. I recommend you do the same, my fellow Cancerian. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): In 2016, the International Garden Photograph of the Year depicted lush lupine flowers in New Zealand. The sea of tall purple, pink, and blue blooms was praised as “an elegant symphony” and “a joy to behold.” What the judges didn’t mention is that lupine is an invasive species in New Zealand. It forces native plant species out of their habitat, which in turn drives away native animal species, including birds like the wrybill, black stilt, and banded dotterel. Is there a metaphorically comparable phenomenon in your life, Leo? Problematic beauty? Some influence that’s both attractive and prickly? A wonderful thing that can also be troublesome? The coming weeks will be a favorable time to try to heal the predicament. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): “I often wonder who I am and where is my country and where do I belong and why was I ever born at all,” wrote Virgo author Jean Rhys (1890–1979). I don’t think you will be agitated by those questions during the next eight weeks, Virgo. In fact, I suspect you will feel as secure in your identity as you have in a long time. You will enjoy prolonged clarity about your role in the world, the nature of your desires, and how you should plan your life for the next two years. If for some inexplicable reason you’re not already enjoying these developments, stop what you’re doing and meditate on the probability that I am telling you the bold truth. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Several states in the U.S. have statutes prohibiting blasphemy. Saying “God damn it” could theoretically get you fined in Massachusetts, South Carolina and Wyoming. In the

By Rob Brezsny

coming days, it’s best to proceed carefully in places like those, since you’ve been authorized by cosmic forces to curse more often and more forcefully than usual. Why? Because you need to summon vivid and intense protests in the face of influences that may be inhibiting and infringing on your soul’s style. You have a poetic license to rebel against conventions that oppress you. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Everyone dreams at least three dreams per night. In a year, your subconscious mind generates over 1,100 dreams. About this remarkable fact, novelist Mila Kundera writes, “Dreaming is not merely an act of coded communication. It is also an aesthetic activity, a game that is a value in itself. To dream about things that have not happened is among humanity’s deepest needs.” I bring this to your attention, Scorpio, because September is Honor Your Dreams Month. To celebrate, I suggest the following experiments. 1. Every night before sleep, write down a question you’d like your dreams to respond to. 2. Keep a notebook by your bed and transcribe at least one dream each time you sleep. 3. In the morning, have fun imagining what the previous night’s dreams might be trying to communicate to you. 4. Say prayers of gratitude to your dreams, thanking them for their provocative, entertaining stories. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): In her autobiography Changing, Sagittarian actor Liv Ullmann expresses grief about how she and a loved one failed to communicate essential truths to each other. I propose we regard her as your anti-role model for the rest of 2021. Use her error as your inspiration. Make emotionally intelligent efforts to talk about unsaid things that linger like ghostly puzzles between you and those you care about. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): “I could do with a bit more excess,” writes author Joanne Harris. “From now on I’m going to be immoderate—and volatile,” she vows. “I shall enjoy loud music and lurid poetry. I shall be rampant.” Let me be clear, Capricorn: I’m not urging you to be immoderate, volatile, excessive, and rampant every day for the rest of your long life. But I think you will generate health benefits and good fortune if you experiment with that approach in the coming weeks. Can you think of relatively sane, sensible ways to give yourself this salubrious luxury? AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): While wading through the internet’s wilder terrain, I found a provocative quote alleged to have been uttered by the ancient Greek philosopher Socrates. He supposedly said, “My ultimate goal is to look totally hot, but not be unapproachable.” I confess that in the past I have sometimes been fooled by fake quotes, and I suspect this is one. Still, it’s amusing to entertain the possibility that such an august personage as Socrates, a major influencer of Western culture, might say something so cute and colloquial. Even if he didn’t actually say it, I like the idea of blending ancient wisdom with modern insights, seriousness with silliness, thoughtful analysis with good fun. In accordance with astrological omens, I recommend you experiment with comparable hybrids in the coming weeks. (PS: One of your goals should be to look totally hot, but not be unapproachable.) PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): “If you don’t know what you want,” writes Piscean novelist Chuck Palahniuk, “you end up with a lot you don’t.” Very true! And right now, it’s extra important to keep that in mind. During the coming weeks, you’ll be at the peak of your ability to attract what you want and need. Wouldn’t you prefer to gather influences you really desire — as opposed to those for which you have mild or zero interest? Define your wants and needs very precisely.

Pulse Newcomer Mister Davey Jones drops single

Greg Keys & Company’s Greg Keys views pop as a transformational entity dependent entirely on the audience

Greg Keys & Company make up for a lost year By Chelsea Grinstead “For a lot of people, especially musicians and food-and-bev people, the new normal seems like double the amount of work that it used to be,” said local indie musician Greg Keys. “We had that whole year off. We were stressed out, wondering if we had to switch careers. We have to be on the scene, so this new normal is a little bit crazy.” Keys was playing gigs last year when people were still afraid to leave their houses. It’s not that he wasn’t worried, but he needed income. “I wanted to save for a home, save for a car,” he said. Nowadays, for Charleston-based synthpop rock group Greg Keys & Company, it’s gone from zero shows a week to 10 between private events and making up all the weddings that were cancelled last year. “This year you have to get two years of work done in one year. Yet you’ve had one less year to accomplish everything for your dreams. Your timeline has been pushed back and now you want to push it forward.” Keys’ musical adventure began with practicing piano in college, which he bought using the $1,000 he won after placing first in a male pageant a sorority put on. He ended up working a 9-to-5 job, and he thought he would play shows to get his mind off of things, which resulted in the assembly of the Charleston-based alternative band City On Down and multiple tours. Then, he switched gears. Keys & Company started taking shape three years ago when bassist Grayson

Lentz reached out to Keys on Facebook and they began to steadily perform together, which led to the formation of the crew that includes drummer Wyatt Mazyck, guitarists Casey Schenkel and David George Sink, saxophonists Jamal Hall and Davis Lentz and vocalist Faith Schueler. With people unsure if it’s all closing down again, everyone is trying to get in as much life as possible these days. “You have to make the most of everything quickly, seize a lot of opportunities quickly,” Keys said. “We normally take three months to promote a show, and we’re saying, ‘OK we have one month let’s see what happens.’” Saturday, Sept. 11 is the band’s big pop show at Windjammer with eight musicians and two dancers on stage. Fifteen percent of the proceeds go to the New York Fire Department nonprofit FDNY Foundation. The production on the Windjammer outdoor stage will feature intricate arrangements of the group’s easy listening pop songs. “We’ve spent hours tracking out and recording in the studio. It’s not so much a jam session as a synchronized performance.” Keys views pop as a transformational entity by nature. “Pop is simply what is being seen and heard and enjoyed by a lot of people. That’s why we are keeping it open and allowing songs to be pulled in different directions. We’re always going to have guitar and sax and some sort of catchy riff or melody that will put us in the pop genre. For now, we want to make songs people can dance to and identify with.”

“ 

You have to make the most of everything quickly, seize a lot of opportunities quickly.” —Greg Keys

Then, Grayson, Lentz, Mazyck and Keys are planning a tour as a four-piece in the East in the fall and out to California in the spring. Uncertainty remains not just because the last tour that took six months to plan was cancelled, but also because of varying COVID regulations at venues. “Our political spectrum throughout the group is diverse. In our band we are individuals first, and we like being that way.” If the gig economy can withstand the present tentativeness of the local music industry, Keys believes that Charleston is an ideal place to be for an up-and-coming artist. “Being from New York, I think this is an easier city to become an artist and be self-sustainable. You can play seven nights a week here. There’s of course spaces that are going to book bigger bands, but there are tons of places with a smaller budget who give the guys starting out a chance.” “Everyone kind of lost themselves during COVID,” Keys said. Right now, live music feels like a waiting game, similar to the premise behind the band’s new single “Bonfire” about unknown outcomes.

Memorial concert for local music enthusiast returns Drifter Fest returns for its second year in honor of the late Bert Griggs, who founded the music-inspired apparel company Drifter Merch in 2016 with his wife Lorrie Dixson Griggs. The pre-show will feature Atlanta’s Last Waltz Ensemble at Home Team BBQ downtown Sept. 10 and the main event will feature jam band Indecision and local cover band Junco Partner at The Refinery Sept. 11. A portion of the festival proceeds will benefit the Lowcountry’s Carolina Studios, a nonprofit that provides students the opportunity to learn about music, technology and media arts. —Chelsea Grinstead

Blue Ricky back on the Tin Roof stage Sept. 6 After a small break, Blue Ricky is returning Sept. 6 to its old stomping grounds, Tin Roof, to play with iconic punk band The Queers. The trio consists of guitarist Ben Somewhere, drummer Roger Mindwater and bassist Scott Brawner. “We draw off the classic punk sound of the Ramones,” Somewhere said. “And The Queers are a huge influence. I started listening to them when I was 14 years old.” Soda City Riot, anthemic punk from Columbia, and Don’t Panic, power pop punk from Pennsylvania, will also share the bill at Tin Roof. Tickets for the 8 p.m. are $15 and available at citypapertickets.com. —CG

Charleston-based hip-hop artist Mister Davey Jones released a new single, “Let it Breathe,” Aug. 27. The track exemplifies Jones’ skill for combining elements of both hip-hop and jazz in a fresh, compelling way. “Let it Breathe” feels like an exhale. It’s an arrangement composed of electric piano, a smooth bass line and finger-tapping percussion. Listeners can expect more singles from the up-and-coming artist, as well as a 10-song project with all new tracks that will be released later this year. —Kate Bryan

Known these days for her antics with experimental ensemble Sexbruise?, musician Julie Slonecki has a solo discography dating back to 2012. She just released “Something to Love,” a quarantine-era introspection that has resonated with her recently as she grapples with the possibility of another music industry shut down due to the COVID spike. “Whether or not we are still going to have gigs, and the uncertainty that goes along with that — I found myself being a little down about the prospects of all that again,” Slonecki said. “The new tune is me coming to a reckoning with being OK with feeling down and longing for something positive to grasp onto. More than anything it was kind of a frustration that influenced the sound and the vibe of it — it’s a protest song.” The lyrics delve into what “should” be despite the fact that “the world is in a fist fight” — should we be happy or should we let it burn? The song encapsulates the back and forth society can’t seem to stop. Slonecki’s vocals, bass and guitar are accompanied by her Sexbruise? bandmates, John Pope on the drums and a shredding guitar solo by Will Evans. “I’m protesting the general state of the world,” she said. “The news and media, the negativity, is amplified all the time around me. It’s so easy to get dragged down by that.” Slonecki’s solo work springs from an internal review of what’s going on in her head. It’s more personal and more meaningful than the humorous improvisation behind Sexbruise? songwriting. “It’s a strange time to be a songwriter. I think everyone is feeling down, and it’s hard to tell if people want to hear songs about that. Sexbruise? doesn’t have anything to do with our personal lives, especially in this timeline that we’re living in. It’s easy to forget to be jovial with all the stuff that’s

Julie Slonecki, known for her work with Sexbruise?, has a collection of introspective solo work going on. Trying not to take it as seriously— that’s what we give to audiences.” For her, staying creative isn’t quite as poetic as it seems. She likes having projects with deadlines, and setting aside time consistently. “If you just wait for the lightning bolt of inspiration, I feel like you will be waiting a long time. Allot yourself a specific time to sit with an instrument or sit with whatever recording program you like and try to write something.” As far as what’s on the horizon for Slonecki, besides another Sexbruise? single Sept. 15, the band also just started a cult. “The sky’s the limit. That’s been my whole career — genre-fluid and all over the place.” —Chelsea Grinstead
