I’ve spent much of this week digging out from pre-Black Friday emails, post-pre-Black Friday VIP exclusives, and “just 500 minutes left to buy this other thing you don’t need” offers. And along with many of you, I’ll probably plunk down some dough to buy some of the junk. Every year I have a bit of buyer’s remorse on my early holiday purchases, but not because they’re too expensive or have privacy policies so questionable they might as well nullify the Third Amendment. I’ve been trying to rely less each year on mostly empty

HUMANS HAVE PLAYED A ROLE IN VIRTUALLY EVERY INSTANCE WHERE SCIENTISTS COULD DETERMINE A CAUSE OF DEATH IN NORTH ATLANTIC RIGHT WHALES BETWEEN 2003-2018

A Tangled Mess

Humans pose greatest threats to endangered whales off Charleston coastline BY SKYLER BALDWIN

CHARLESTON CITY PAPER 11.27.2019

A natural phenomenon usually reserved for exotic locales, animal extinction isn’t something that many of us consider could be happening in our own backyard. But just off the South Carolina coast around this time, fewer North Atlantic right whales begin migrating south each year.

6

By a stroke of bad luck for the whales — majestic, slow-moving creatures that weigh upwards of 50 tons — they swim close to the shore and feed near the surface of the water, making them especially vulnerable to the perils humans have created for them just off our coast. Consequently, these whales are one of the most endangered on Earth. “Right whales unfortunately occupy and migrate through probably the most industrialized swath of ocean on the planet, and that’s the east coast of North America,” says C.T. Harry, the marine campaigner for the International Fund for Animal Welfare. “You HARRY can imagine the kind of threat gauntlet they have to face.” Most North Atlantic right whales head south for the winter, according to Smithsonian Ocean, to shallow coastal waters off the coasts

of Georgia and Florida, their only known breeding grounds, where they give birth to one calf every three to five years. Once temperatures begin to warm in the spring, they migrate back north to spend the summer and early fall months feeding and nursing their calves in the waters off New England and Canada. The near-500-mile obstacle course of fishing line, seafaring vessels, and more has led to more deaths than what the species can tolerate. In population ecology, Harry says, threatened species are assigned a figure called PBR — potential biological removal — which represents how many can die in a year for the population to continue to thrive in the wild. North Atlantic right whales have a PBR of one. However, according to the IFAW, between 2003 and 2018, 70 North Atlantic right whale deaths were documented between Florida and the Gulf of St. Lawrence, Canada. Of those, the cause was able to be determined in 43 cases, and in each one, the deaths were at least partially due to human activity.

Of all the causes identified, no adult or juvenile whale died due to natural causes. According to Sarah Sharp of IFAW, this is clear evidence that the whales are unable to live full, productive lives due to human interference. “The two main threats to right whale survivorship are human-caused,” Harry explains. “We are killing these animals, and we are killing them by entangling them in commercial fishing gear and running them over with large ships.” Historically, the annual mortality rate of North Atlantic right whales is about three to five, but since June 2017, 30 right whales have reportedly died, about a 1,000-percent jump. “We examined a number of dead marine mammals, animals that wash ashore or are fished up, determining cause of death,” Harry says. “It really crystallized in me the threats that these animals face … “Seeing the deep lacerations that can occur around the animal’s flippers and, in turn, seeing that hemorrhage and muscular damage and even organ damage, we are talking long-term, so these animals are basically being strangled for months long. It’s an unbelievably horrible animal welfare issue.” Luckily, there is some good news among the threats surrounding the whales. Deaths related to vessel collision seem to have leveled off. While they are not decreasing, they

are not increasing either, which is a good sign that protective legislation, such as speed restriction zones, is working. It’s also relatively easy for the community to get involved and take an active role in the conservation of these whales. So, it’s even more imperative to be in the know. “It’s just really important to understand the value that marine mammals have not only for the tourist industry, but to the ecosystem as a whole,” Harry says. According to IFAW representatives like Harry, advocating and pitching policy for the betterment of the species is equally important to understanding the significance at stake in contacting your local officials and representatives. “A lot of the stuff we do now is try to make sure these bedrock environmental laws are strong,” Harry explains. “One of the things that’s very relevant to Charleston is that Joe Cunningham has been a real champion for the right whales in his work against off-shore drilling, particularly off the coast of South Carolina.” Cunningham has actively used his platform to advocate for the right whales, because he has a deep understanding of one of their other major threats, seismic activity and noise-related damage, both of which are exacerbated by off-shore drilling. continued on page 11

BIPARTISAN EFFORT TO DEFINE ‘YES’ STALLS IN HOUSE JUDICIARY What does it mean to say “yes” to a sexual act? A bipartisan group of lawmakers in the House wants to answer that question clearly in state law. But first, they have to clear a big hurdle: getting a hearing in the House Judiciary Committee. “We have nothing right now in South Carolina that defines consent at all, and everyone is walking around with their own definition,” Lancaster Democratic Rep. Mandy Powers Norrell says. “We have seen it litigated. We’ve seen people say, ‘I thought she wanted to have sex’ as a defense in rape cases … Every state should clearly define what it means to consent to sexual activity in that state.” Only half the states in the nation have a definition of consent, according to Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network. The S.C. Coalition Against Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault, a coalition that aids domestic violence and sexual assault survivors, also supports defining consent just to make everything crystal clear. “The whole conversation around consent as it pertains to policy is fairly recent. This is something a lot of states are grappling with,” executive director Sara Barber says. “South Carolina always seems to be one of the last to get on board with having policies that make our culture safer for women (and other victims).” Barber said this bill is a small but important piece in changing the state’s culture toward women and victims of sexual violence and domestic violence. “Laws or policies tell us what a society thinks is important or what is acceptable behavior, so a bill like this could aid in doing that. We have to recognize that to reduce sexual violence in our culture, it’s going to take an effort on multiple fronts,” she said. Introduced Jan. 31 by Norrell, House Bill 3829 would define consent as “words or overt actions indicating freely given agreement to have sexual intercourse or sexual contact,” and that lack of consent can be determined through words or conduct. The bill also states that previous consent for sexual acts does not determine future consent. Currently under S.C. law, the state recognizes that a person that has a developmental disability or mental incapacity cannot give consent to a sexual act. It also recognizes that a person cannot give consent while unconscious or intoxicated. Having a definition of consent is two-fold for victims’ rights advocates: it would help with educating the population on what it means to consent, potentially warding off any non-consensual acts. Having a clear definition also would give prosecutors greater leverage in proving rape. Norrell serves as vice chair of the Judiciary Committee where the bill has languished without a hearing. She has been promised by Chair Peter McCoy (R-Charleston) that a hearing would happen once her bills on consent and other sexual violence are wrapped into an omnibus package on rape victims’ protections. McCoy did not respond to requests for comment. “Everything is stuck in Judiciary,” said Charleston Republican Rep. Lin Bennett, a co-sponsor. “I don’t know what his plans are this year, but I hope (consent is) on his list … It’s a no-brainer. It’s the right thing to do.”

PACKNETT, GARZA AMONG ACTIVISTS PLANNED FOR WREN EQUALITY FORUM IN DECEMBER

The National Women’s Law Center’s President and CEO, Fatima Goss Graves; Black Lives Matter Co-Founder, Alicia Garza; and Campaign Zero Co-Founder and member of Ferguson Uprising, Brittany Packnett Cunningham will head to Charleston for a “fireside chat” as a part of the inaugural forum on gender equity on Sat. Dec. 7. The goal of the forum is “to highlight the power that women and genderexpansive people have to shape their future in South Carolina and across the country,” a press release read last week. South Carolina-based Women’s Rights and Empowerment Network (WREN) and the NWLC are partnering to bring the nationally recognized activists and social movement leaders to Charleston. “WREN is honored to host this one-of-a-kind event with such empowering national and local organizations,” said WREN CEO Ann Warner in the press release. “The goal of this event is to unite and inspire, reinforcing the sense of community and responsibility necessary to the fight for gender equality.” Graves says she was also honored to be a part of the discussion and is hoping to bring others into the conversation and bring effective change throughout the community. “With the current socio-political landscape and its implications, effects, and barriers for reaching true gender equality, this conversation is more relevant today than ever,” Graves said. “We hope to inspire grassroots activists to continue making a positive impact on their communities, starting right here in Charleston.” December’s visit will be Packnett’s second this year. In February, she was a guest host during a live recording of Pod Save America, a liberal podcast that spawned a show she co-hosts, Pod Save the People. In addition to the national names, a number of local nonprofits and activist groups will be joining the movement, including Black Women 2020; Charleston Black Pride; EveryBlackGirl, Inc.; People Against Rape; YWCA of Greater Charleston; Transformative Teaching Collective; and We Are Family. —Skyler Baldwin

We have big gaping holes in our law. We should fix those as soon as possible,” she said. “We should send a message to our citizens that preventing sexual assault, and punishing sexual assault is a priority in this state.” —Lindsay Street

“If we are going to ensure the survival of this critically endangered species, we need effective policy and immediate federal action,” Cunningham said in a statement. “That doesn’t include blasting disruptive and damaging sounds every 10 seconds for a period of days, weeks, and even months.” Cunningham’s work helping the environment is one of the reasons he says he is proud the House passed his bill to permanently ban off-shore drilling and seismic airgun blasting off the Atlantic coast. There is another piece of legislation working through Congress right now, known as SAVE Right Whales Act — the Scientific Assistance for the Very Endangered. The bill would grant funding for collaborative research and innovation for fishing, shipping, and conservation efforts to promote new technologies that reduce the two threats of vessel collision and entanglement. Despite the legislative efforts, bills can only do so much, as it is the fishing industries that are responsible for many of the accidental whale deaths. “We think, at the end of the day, these organizations are going to have to make the decisions to protect these right whales but also to protect their own industries,” Harry says. “As more and more keep dying, more and more regulations and mandates are going to be put into place.”

A semi-truck pulled down power lines in a downtown business’ parking lot. Apparently the grass and landscaping they normally tear up wasn’t enough. A silver iPad, MacBook Pro, and a rose gold Apple Watch, all valued at just under $5,000 were stolen from a man’s truck. Those blue bubbles are getting at it. A woman was arrested for DUI after her children called their father from the backseat, crying because “mommy’s driving.” A woman reported a break-in while she was away from home after she realized her bed and bedframe were gone.

Three men stacked an outdoor chair on top of a patio table in an attempt to gain access to a home’s second-story balcony. They were not successful. A man arrested for intent to distribute marijuana probably would have gotten away with it had he not been illegally parked in a handicapped spot. An officer pulled over a vehicle that smelled of marijuana. But the driver and his passenger smoked all of their weed before the officer could arrest them, so they were let off with a warning.

Any other method would have to be passed into law by our state government (“Rethinking the Charleston runoff requirement” by Gibbs Knotts). Which would probably take years if it ever happened.

The much-ballyhooed International African American Museum, which held its groundbreaking ceremony in Charleston last month, fails to recognize one basic truth about African-American people and their long history: that we are not now, never were, and never will be anyone’s slaves. Captives, perhaps for a time, but not slaves. To be a slave requires willing submission to the impositions of another, usually for some perceived cultural benefit, as with the civilizing influence of the Romans over the Slavs (and the British) — the relationship from which the word slave is derived. We have spent over 400 years in America conducting innumerable individual acts of resistance, revolts, skirmishes, major wars, religious, moral, and artistic movements, and civil rights campaigns just to prove that point, and the modern world seems better off for our struggles. This signal failure of IAAM — despite corporate support — to recognize our freedom struggles over our supposed enslavement, threatens to undermine long run possibilities for truthtelling, transforming educational uplift, and success. This is why the Citizens Want Excellence at IAAM group of Charleston has opposed the Museum’s establishment and construction as currently planned. Form follows function in planning museums, which are usually erected to exhibit collections of artifacts that project a particular narrative, a story flawed in this case by viewing African Americans mainly through the distorting lens of enslavement, without countervailing exhibitions of artifacts that celebrate our distinguished contributions to humanity and civilization. Citizens Want Excellence at IAAM proposed adding a large replica of the Ishango Bone — the world’s first known mathematical and scientific tool, c. 23,000 B.C. — to the museum’s landscape design and permanent exhibits to help remedy the problem. IAAM officials have not accepted our suggestion, supported by a petition signed by 750 citizens. African peoples have the longest history of any human groups on Earth, and all the world’s peoples descend from them. According to UNESCO, they created the world’s first cultures and civilizations and established religion, science, and the arts. IAAM should recognize the magnificent cultural heritage so evident in the crafts and the non-material and built environment of Charleston and the Lowcountry. Coil basketry, ornamental ironwork, the pediments and porches of the Charleston single house are prime examples, not to mention our tremendous impact on religion, agriculture, cuisine, language, music, and the arts. By stubbornly viewing us through the lens of enslavement (ignoring 20 years of attempts at correction), IAAM spreads insulting disinformation that is psychologically injurious to African Americans, cementing our public image in a degraded state that subtly constitutes a continuation of the calumny of slavery. Local clergy and theologians invited from near and far to help consecrate a place of notorious racist crimes, Gadsden’s Wharf, in the name of “interracial� unity, should first clarify and purify the root of their agreement; remembering Galatians 5:1, which admonishes us not to “submit again� to a “yoke of slavery.� This is particularly true in our minds, where the cancerous notion of exploiting others for gain and enslaving them first takes root and then spreads more broadly into thought and behavior. Citizens Want Excellence at IAAM will continue educational efforts to remove slavery’s persistent yoke of white supremacy from the public’s mind in Charleston. Our community should not spend $93 million to sugarcoat and memorialize a place of racist atrocity in a half-true version of history. Let’s not reconstruct the barracoon — the historic structure that housed enslaved Africans, which the planned building resembles. Instead, utilizing elements of our great local design tradition, redesign IAAM as a “whole truth� jewel of African-American history, an icon of our victories in struggle, symbolizing the creative God-given spirit of unity in the fight for human freedom that very soon shall overcome white supremacy, racism, and oppression. That would be a fitting tribute to Charleston’s 350th year. Wilmot A. Fraser is an activist with Citizens Want Excellence at IAAM.

A FEW WORDS | BY ANDY BRACK

Steeped in Tradition The first Thanksgiving in South Carolina probably was in French. Or Spanish. More than 100 years before the English settled in Charleston in 1670, the French built a small wooden fort on what is now Parris Island. Known as Charlesfort in honor of the French king, it was abandoned after a couple of years. Then in 1566, the Spanish established Santa Elena in the same area as the northernmost settlement of its province of La Florida. For much of its first 10 years, Santa Elena was the capital of La Florida. Both footholds in what is now South Carolina shared two things: the lack of a steady supply of food and tough living conditions. But French and Spanish cultures, like those of other European nations who sent explorers to the New World, had religious traditions of giving thanks, as outlined by Charleston historian Nic Butler: “It was common for the ‘commander-in-chief’ to issue a proclamation, at least once a year, setting aside a specific ‘holyday’ or ‘holiday’ for quiet reflection. That is to say, a day for people to refrain from all work and to focus their thoughts and prayers on a specific topic. Such proclamations might occur at any point during the calendar year, and might occur more than once a year, depending on what was happening in the local community.”

What did they eat? Your guess is as good as mine, but they had access to wild game, including turkeys, as well as maize and marshes full of seafood. Maybe they had turkey and an early concoction of the state dish, shrimp and grits. So while most students learn the Pilgrims celebrated the first Thanksgiving in Massachusetts in 1621, it’s more likely they merely followed a tradition of giving thanks that had been around for a long time. Butler writes the earliest recorded observance of a public thanksgiving in the English colony of South Carolina was in October 1706 after a militia beat Spanish and French troops from St. Augustine in Florida. He wrote: “The Rev. Francis LeJau, a missionary from England who arrived in Charleston on the 18th of October 1706, noted in a letter that ‘Upon my first Landing I saw the Inhabitants rejoycing: they

had kept the day before holy for a thanksgiving to Almighty God for being safely delivered from an Invasion from the French and Spaniards.’” As the colonies became a new nation in the late 1700s, Thanksgiving was celebrated off and on, depending on a presidential proclamation. In 1837, Northern abolitionist and editor Sarah Josepha Hale started a campaign for a national day of thanks every year. In 1844, S.C. Gov. James Henry Hammond called for South Carolinians to worship as “becomes all Christian nations.” That irritated the state’s Jewish residents, who were early settlers to the English colony more than 100 years earlier thanks to its religious freedom, enshrined in the U.S. Constitution by South Carolina framer Charles Pinckney. Charleston’s Jews protested Hammond’s holiday by reportedly keeping two synagogues in Charleston closed. In the 1850s, many states, including South Carolina, adopted Hale’s recommendation and declared Nov. 25 to be an annual day of thanksgiving. In 1858, the Charleston Courier reported, “Our city presented a Sunday appearcontinued on page 19


continued from page 18 ance. Business rested. The stones answered only to the wheels of light vehicles. The church-bells discoursed sweet music, and crowds flocked to the houses of worship.” Then, in 1863, during the Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln established the custom of the last Thursday of the month being proclaimed as a national holiday. In the years that followed, each president made a thanksgiving proclamation. It wasn’t until the fall of 1941 that President Franklin D.

Thanksgiving by the Book, or Not

Tips and wisdom from Charleston’s own celebrity chef Nathalie Dupree

Photos by Hélène Dujardin/Courtesy of Nathalie Dupree’s Favorite Stories and Recipes

 I

f there’s a sexier cookbook cover, I’m not sure what it is. Golden pools of melted butter luxuriate in a luscious bed of silky smooth mashed potatoes, their decadent peaks swirled by a stylist just so, their rhythmic artistry echoing the bowl’s scalloped edges. “Mashed” may be too crass a word for this culinary confection. This is comfort food that transports you beyond comfort, deep into pure seduction. This is the come-hither cover of Nathalie Dupree’s Favorite Stories and Recipes. Butter lovers beware. But don’t let the racy cover fool you. For Nathalie Dupree, whose illustrious career as a culinary celebrity began long before celebrity chefs were a thing and certainly before Instagram turned meals into splashy

centerfolds, food porn isn’t the point. Sure, she wants dishes to be attractive and alluring — even the lowly mashed potato — but the “comfort” part is key, both for the cook and the cooked for. Stress, she acknowledges, can be a real turn off. Make it easy on yourself. There’s nothing wrong with shortcuts like buying pre-chopped onions at Trader Joe’s. “I make as much ahead of time as possible,” Dupree advises, especially for oftenoverwhelming holiday doings. She cooks her turkey the night before, as well as her mashed potatoes. Reheating in the microwave is perfectly acceptable. And never forget, she’s quick to add, the whole reason for cooking for others is not to make an impression, but to make connections, to bring loved ones to the table. Those butter-lathered spuds, among other tasty fare from Dupree’s recipe troves, are a means to an end, not an end in themselves. In Dupree’s gastronomy, a fine meal is as much about enjoying people as it is marveling at mashed potatoes, though marvel you will. It might be a tad of a stretch, but not much

of one, to suggest that what Dolly Parton is to country music, Nathalie Dupree is to the kitchen: a been-there, done-it-all blond bombshell whose credibility and talent is unassailable. Bear with me, you fanatic Dollyphiles. Like Dolly, Nathalie is a straight-shooting, smart-as-awhip (or whipped cream) Southern icon with sassy wit and big heart. Both women came from families that knew economic hardship; both used charm and grit to elbow through sexism in male dominated industries. Both hit their early strides with successful TV shows — Dupree has filmed some 300 episodes for the Food Network Channel and PBS, and both have produced hit after smash hit through the years — Dupree a best-selling author of 14 cookbooks, with the most recent, the tome with that salacious cover, released this fall, just in time for Thanksgiving. Before that, her monstrous Mastering the Art of Southern Cooking was re-released as a special commemorative issue, weighing in at over 8 pounds, a big healthy baby. “I guess people think I’m about to knock off soon,” the 80-year-old Dupree says. Not so fast, though; she’s got other plans, including other cookbooks. While Dolly has been honored with lifetime achievement awards from both the Country Music Association and the Grammys, Dupree, a multiple-James-BeardAward winner, was crowned a “Grand Dame” by Les Dames d’Escoffier International in 2011, and inducted into the James Beard Foundation’s Who’s Who of Food and Beverage in America, basically the highest rung of the foodie ladder. For Dolly, writing songs is all about storytelling. For Nathalie, “a good recipe tells a story,” she says. I’m not sure if these Southern sisters have ever met, but I’d love to be a fly on the wall if and when they do. continued on page 22

Dupree continued from page 21 “Nathalie has this refreshing honesty. She speaks her mind and definitely has a lot of wisdom to share — the wisdom of someone who’s had a million jobs and several marriages and traveled all over the world,” says Jenni Ridall, a local food stylist and recipe creator who worked alongside Dupree for months as she painstakingly tested every recipe in Favorite Stories and Recipes. “Nathalie is a purist, everything she puts her name on in print has to be exactly right and has to work for the home cook.” Before moving to Charleston, Ridall worked and studied with chef Virginia Willis in North Carolina, one of Dupree’s “little chickens,” as Dupree dubs her many protégés, and when Willis found out Ridall was moving to Charleston, she introduced the two. “Nathalie was so generous in welcoming me, and was particularly savvy with her womanto-woman business advice. ‘We need to talk about some things,’ she said, warning me to charge appropriate rates and not undervalue my worth as many women tend to do. And she’s been amazingly supportive, offering me this opportunity to work on this book, my biggest project since going freelance and starting my own company,” says Ridall, owner of TK Culinary Consulting + Test Kitchen. As Ridall experienced firsthand and as Dupree’s fans and followers have known for years, Dupree’s mission is to empower, educate, and inspire the home cook. She follows three basic principles in determining

“[Nathalie] speaks her mind and definitely has a lot of wisdom to share — the wisdom of someone who’s had a million jobs and several marriages and traveled all over the world” —Jenni Ridall

what she’ll include in a cookbook: “Every ingredient has to be available at the average grocery store.” (Dupree shops primarily at the downtown Harris Teeter, or rather, her husband Jack Bass shops there—“I send him with a list, he doesn’t trust me.”) “It has to be relatively affordable,” she insists. And, “It has to be doable by the average home cook. Which is what traditional Southern cooking was — home-cooked food.” “Nathalie is a teacher at heart, she wants people to be comfortable maneuvering in the kitchen,” Ridall says. Yet despite her own Cordon Bleu training and decade of expertise, there were times Ridall was less than comfortable tackling some of Dupree’s recipes. “I was like ‘What! We have to make the Mont Blanc from Angelina’s in Paris? And a croquembouche?’ I’m not sure anybody in their right mind would make one of those at home, but Nathalie was like, ‘Why are you afraid of it? It’s just cooking.

it’ll be fine.’ And it was,” Ridall says. Even if a fancy croquembouche is not on your menu, sometimes the steps one needs to follow are unclear or overwhelming. For example, on Thanksgiving, when even the most confident home cook is often faced with more guests than usual, and certainly

more expectations from whomever might have traveled over the river and through the woods to your humble table. Thanksgiving “is fraught with hidden agendas and mixed feelings,” Dupree states outright in the new cookbook’s essay titled “Giving Thanks.” “Learning how to negotiate and be flexible in feeding others on this day brings food into its seat of power,” she continues.

Nathalie Dupree’s

Mashed Potato Recipe Whipped, Mashed, or Riced Potatoes SERVES 4

2 pounds Yukon Gold or Idaho potatoes, peeled and cut into half-inch cubes 2-4 tablespoons butter, divided

½-1 cup milk, buttermilk, skim milk, or potato water, heated Salt & freshly ground black pepper

Add enough cold water to the potatoes to cover them by 1 inch in a heavy pot. Add 1 teaspoon salt and bring to the boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer until soft, about 20 to 30 minutes. Test by squooshing a bit of potatoes between two fingers to make sure there are no lumps. If there are, cook longer. Drain well in a colander, reserving water as needed to add to the mashed potatoes. Add the butter to the empty pot and melt over low heat. Return potatoes to the pot over a low heat and whip, mash, or rice to incorporate the butter. If the potatoes are more watery than desired, before adding the hot liquid, cook the potatoes with the butter until some of the liquid evaporates. Add some of the hot liquid and butter and blend well. Continue adding milk, mashing or whipping constantly, until the desired consistency is reached. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Tips for the Perfect Mashed Potatoes There are three crucial steps in achieving this ideal: 1) cooking the potatoes sufficiently, 2) adding fat to the hot potatoes to coat the starch molecules, and 3) adding hot liquid to the potatoes in a pot over the heat to let the starches swell. To finish the potatoes, select one of these methods: • Mash or whip in the fat over low heat, then add the hot liquid using a small electric hand mixer or sturdy whisk • Use a flat-bottomed masher or other heavy object to mash down the drained potatoes in the pan over low heat before stirring in hot liquid, and continue until desired texture • Push the cooked potatoes through the ricer into the still hot pan with melted butter VARIATIONS • Substitute heavy cream, cream cheese, or mascarpone and add more butter for rich mashed potatoes • Leave the peel on and smash potatoes in the pot with a heavy object, add roasted garlic or chopped fresh herbs

more about human character. “The main thing I want women and cooks to remember is that food is a control issue. Whoever controls the food controls the show, and that can be extraordinarily frustrating for people,” says Dupree, recalling having had young children at her table who wouldn’t eat anything but mac-n-cheese. “So why not keep Annie’s mac-n-cheese in the cupboard, or better yet, go ahead and make it. Figure out what’s going to make everybody happy,” she suggests. And — this one was music to my husband’s ears — Dupree is a big fan of serving the meal at a regular hour. “A wise cook focuses the fete as close to a normal eating time as possible … tummies and tempers

will be better for it.” So much for my lobbying for a 4 p.m. serving time. And besides Annie’s mac-n-cheese (if your picky eaters require that), what else will be on Nathalie Dupree’s Thanksgiving menu? Turkey, of course (she cooks two — one the night before, that she carves and heats up to serve, and one smaller one for show and for leftovers), plus roasted vegetables, probably creamed corn, and an orange ambrosia that’s a family Thanksgiving tradition. Her apple pie is a contender for the dessert options, and then of course there are the mashed potatoes. “Every cook should have one dish that when people are lying in bed at night long after she’s dead and gone they’ll remember that dish and long for it, like mashed potatoes. I load ‘em up with cream and butter,” Dupree says. “Don’t serve diet food on Thanksgiving. It’s time to sit around the table and be fat and happy.” Her parting tip? “I’ll let you in on my secret,” she says. “Fill a big cooler with hot soapy water, then put it out of the way. Put all your dirty pots and pans in the cooler, and hide the dish soap. Maintain control of cleanup; that way people can enjoy relaxing around the table. Who cares about pots and pans on Thanksgiving?”

A DOUBLEWIDE, TEXAS CHRISTMAS IS A COMEDY — WITH A SERIOUS MESSAGE. CATCH IT AT FLOWERTOWN THEATRE THIS DECEMBER

All the City’s A Stage

CHS. LIBRARY BOYCOTTS MACMILLAN PUBLISHERS

Our look at this season’s holiday shows BY VINCENT HARRIS From the absurd to the sublime, from the classic to the contemporary, and from the family-friendly to the, uh, less-so, Charleston’s theater community has a plethora of productions coming up over the holiday season. We’ve put together a summary of just some of this season’s shows so you can plan out your theater-going experience (check out all theater events and news on our website — and stay tuned for reviews of some of these shows coming soon).

A Doublewide, Texas Christmas

28

Where: Flowertown Theatre, 133 S. Main St. Summerville When: Nov. 29-Dec. 14 Price: $15+ More info: flowertownplayers.org Summary: Doublewide, Texas (population: 10) is the Lone Star State’s newest, smallest town, and the most wonderful time of the year is now the most stressful. After being crossed by the county, township papers in jeopardy, Doublewide residents look to prove themselves in the county’s “Battle of the Mangers” competition with their “Nativity at the Alamo” display.

“A Doublewide, Texas Christmas is a comedy about a dysfunctional extended family, working together for a common goal against insurmountable odds,” says director Larry Spinner. “What I like most about this show is that it is a comedy with a serious message. Through the laughter, it reminds us of the need to be compassionate and forgiving. Anger and revenge are self-destructive, and everyone deserves a second chance.”

In an exciting moment for public art in the city, local community-building nonprofit Enough Pie has secured permission to paint murals on the columns under a portion of I-26 off upper King Street. At the end of Simons Street and north of Romney Street is an area that the group is calling “the people’s park.” In a press release, EP describes the people’s park as an area that is “commonly used by local residents as a route downtown” and one that is a “vital asset for a community connection between the East and West Side of Charleston.” Now through Mon. Dec. 2, EP is accepting artist applications to paint murals on the 12 columns located in the area. Installation will take place this spring, with a late May/ early June launch of the revitalized park. Have a submission? Send it to info@ enoughpie.org or call (843) 972-3253. —Connelly Hardaway

It’s Radio City, it’s timeless holiday classics, stunning costumes, incredible singers, innovative choreography, high kicks, the fastest, fanciest footwork in Charleston, Santa and Mrs. Claus, elves, reindeer, and tender moments that remind us all of the true meaning of the holidays.” Provided

Holiday Spectacular at Cultural Arts Center Charleston

Where: Citadel Mall, 2070 Sam Rittenberg Blvd. Suite 112. West Ashley When: Dec. 5-22 Price: $12-$40 More info: cartscc.com Summary: Holiday Spectacular is a family-friendly holiday show filled with dancing reindeer, multiple tapping Santas, a choir of Christmas elves, singers from NYC, and a special visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus. CACC has assembled a cast of 23 that includes three guest artists from New York and Los Angeles, CACC’s resident Company Ensemble Members, and 10 young performers ranging in ages from 8 to 16. This 60-minute musical revue features Christmas tunes of yesterday and modern classics, and the show features CACC’s traditional mix of exceptional talent, lavish costumes, and innovative and theatrical staging.

“If you didn’t see last year’s Winter Wonderland display at Citadel Mall, now is your chance to be dazzled,” says Cultural Arts Center Charleston’s artistic director, Kirk Pfeiffer. “This show is a Charleston favorite

Della’s Diner: A Country Musical Comedy Soap Opera

Where: Threshold Repertory Theatre, 84 Society St. Downtown When: Dec. 6-22 Price: $10-$25 More info: charlestontheater.com Summary: Della’s Diner by Tom Edwards holds the record for the longest running musical in Atlanta’s history. It started in 1978 and ran into the late 1990s with a total of six episodes. Threshold is producing the episode that started it all, Blue Plate Special. Home cooking, cornball humor, and a dash of social significance furnish the principal ingredients of this folksy country musical, which spoofs a Tennessee-style soap opera as it spins a tale about Della Juracko, her mixed-up relationships, and the threatened future of her diner.

“This is the sixth time I have worked on a production of Della’s Diner, which should tell you just how much I love these characters,” says director Don Brandenburg. “The last Della’s Diner production to which I was connected was in 2005, so I thought it was time to introduce a new audience to the continued on page 30

Last week, Charleston County Public Library announced that they are temporarily going to stop purchasing newly released print books, e-books, downloadable audio books, and books on CD from Macmillan Publishers. CCPL plans to implement the ban for at least 12 weeks. The boycott comes as part of a national movement to protest Macmillan’s recent business practices toward libraries. On Nov. 1, Macmillan implemented a new policy: Libraries are now prohibited from purchasing more than one copy of a newly released e-book for the first eight weeks after that book’s publication in an effort to increase sales. In a press release, CCPL’s executive director Angela Craig said, “CCPL opposes any effort to restrict or delay our ability to provide the public with free and equitable access to information and services. Macmillan’s embargo could lead to patrons waiting months or longer for some e-books.” Craig continued, “Public libraries advance literacy and promote a love of reading to our communities. As we always have, libraries should be working with authors and book publishers to advance those important goals, not against them.” For a limited time during and after the boycott, Charleston readers may not be able to access Macmillan titles, but the boycott will not affect titles already in circulation. Learn more about how you can help CCPL online at ccpl.org/boycott. —CH

Let the Good Times Evolve After 28 years on Broad Street, women’s boutique Utopia closes one door and opens a few others BY CONNELLY HARDAWAY “The concept of utopia is not static, it’s evolution and growth and expansion. To just keep staying in the same is not living up to the ideal of what utopia is.” Beki Crowell and Sherman Evans first opened Utopia, a women’s boutique on Broad Street, 28 years ago. The year was 1991 and demand was high for funky street fashion in a sleepy Southern town. What started as Beki’s in the Market in a booth a few blocks away, became a fullblown boutique, steps from the Four Corners of Law. Utopia called itself the “Fifth Corner of Law” — fashion. “There wasn’t street fashion, there was still the preppy Birkenstock look,” says Crowell of Charleston’s style almost three decades ago. “We dressed the young, hip, fun crowd. It was very city, very urban. We’d get all the alternatives in here, coming down conservative Broad Street.”

Even in 2019, Utopia is a bright light of something a little different, a warm oasis on a chilly November night, tucked among law offices and traditional art galleries. Since ‘91, those art galleries have gotten a little more varied and the clientele downtown has grown more diverse. With growth, of course, comes growing pains, including rising rent and the move toward online shopping. Coupled with the logistics of running a small boutique in the Amazon era, Crowell and Evans have grown up too. They have new avenues to explore. “I’ve been working with vibrational healing for the past five years,” says Crowell, whose spiritual memoir, Bare Beauty: My Journey of Awakening, was published last year. Crowell is also an artist; her work hangs on the walls of Utopia, a vestige of the boutique’s early days as part gallery space (it was tough to sell the works, so they moved to just displaying Crowell’s pieces).

BEKI CROWELL AND HER HUSBAND SHERMAN EVANS HAVE BEEN OUTFITTING CHARLESTON’S HIP CROWD FOR YEARS

Evans and Crowell have found that owning a clothing boutique is an excellent opportunity to flex their creative muscles — and

help other people in the process. “When you step into a space like Utopia, you should be safe to experience yourself,” says Evans. He admits that some women took a while to warm up to a man helping them find the perfect dress, but Evans is all effusive praise when you find that special something. “I tell them, ‘It’s the dress, not you. It’s always the clothing, not you.’” Years ago, Crowell hung a sign in the dressing room, one that aligns with the welcoming, open vibes (the good juju, as the two say), that you can find at Utopia. It begins, “Your hips are not too wide,” listing other body parts that may seem too round, too small, ending with “You’re absolutely perfect

just the way you are.” That sentiment has resonated with a lot of shoppers in Charleston — just look at Utopia’s Facebook page to see the memories shared by years-long patrons. People found prom dresses, wedding dresses, and even future spouses at Utopia. As the couple reflect now, they think fondly of the years of hard work put into the little boutique that could. “We used to do crazy stuff,” laughs Evans. Before the pair had three grown kids, before their clientele grew up and moved away, there were parties, fashion shows, boundarypushing advertising. Even 30 years later, you may blush at the boldness of the store’s ads, designed by Colin Quashie, whose provocative work is currently on display at the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art. “I painted one of our customers who was a stripper,” says Crowell, describing a cuttingedge fashion show held many moons ago. “I painted her in flourescent paint so when she danced on stage and moved under a black light, she glowed in color.” You can see some of that same energy and color — perhaps a bit more subdued, but still brilliant — at Utopia’s final party, held on Sat. Dec. 7. They’re thinking of it less as a funeral (don’t be sad, y’all) and more of a graduation. “This choice is really letting Utopia evolve,” says Crowell. “Even though we’re closing the store, the soul will live on. I don’t know how that will look, but it’s not going to look the same. It’s got to be different. I’m excited to see how it reveals itself.”

Violence and Meditation The Irishman takes a seat with Scorsese classics

CHARLESTON CITY PAPER 11.27.2019

When the public first heard that Martin Scorsese was making a new film that would revisit the mob genre he’s best known for with three actors also known for their roles in gangster classics, fans were amped. What more could fans of mob movies ask for? How about a gangster epic that clocks in at a butt-numbing 3 hours and 29 minutes? After seeing The Irishman (titled onscreen as I Heard You Paint Houses, the title of the book on which it’s based), there are moments where you’ll be cognizant of the film’s length — but not in a bad way. It’s an entertaining film. We start with one of the maestro’s signature moves. At the outset, The Irishman leads us through a series of busy hallways in a retirement home until settling on one wheelchair-bound resident, Frank Sheeran (Robert De Niro) as he looks back on his life. From his (possibly unreliable) perspective, we follow his life over many decades — from WWII soldier to blue collar Joe trying to get by to his friendship with Russell Bufalino (Joe Pesci), head of the Bufalino crime family, and, ultimately, his involvement in the disappearance of his friend Jimmy Hoffa (Al Pacino). On its face, this is well-worn material for Scorsese fans, but there’s more. We don’t get many fast-cut scenes that throw you head-long into the anxiety or catharsis of vibrant, spry characters. Instead the film, like its main characters, moves slower. It’s safe to say that there are some scenes that move at a glacial pace. In most of Scorsese’s crime dramas, the films end on a rollicking note with a song that matches the chaotic ethos of its characters. Like in Goodfellas, Henry Hill’s coke-fueled saga closed with The Sex Pistol’s rambunctious cover of “I Did it My Way,” Frank Sheeran’s story concludes with The Five Satins’ “In the Still of the Night.” The Irishman has many familiar trappings of mob

WHILE THE DE-AGING EFFECTS CAN BE DISTRACTING, THE TALENT OF THE ACTORS GENERALLY SHINES THROUGH

flicks — big band music underscoring flashes of violence while criminals engage in humorous, vulgar banter. Rather than wallow in the intoxicating excess of the genre that he helped popularize, this time Scorsese decides to explore something that’s not quite as immediately tangible. This is a crime epic for sure, but a meditative quality permeates the last hour. It recalls Sergio Leone’s Once Upon a Time in America and Silence, Scorsese’s 2016 lamentation on mortality, regret, and faith. At one point late in the film, an older Sheeran is praying

with a priest who makes futile attempts to wrangle an emotional breakthrough from the tight-lipped sinner. The confessor fights the impulse to purge himself of the existential suffering he’s brought to those he loves. It’s a poignant moment. If there were any qualms to be had, it’s the de-aging effects used on the talent. It can be distracting in some scenes but, in hindsight, I think that has as much to do with being familiar with the actors themselves. (Though it definitely doesn’t come close to Rogue One: A Star Wars Story re-animating Grand Moff Tarkin.)

None of this takes away from how compelling this film is. Robbie Robertson’s score adds to the grit. You’ll get swept up in Steven Zallian’s busy adaptation. Deniro’s Sheeran, though a violent criminal, is a walking bundle of relatable anguish. As a flamboyant and tragic Hoffa, Pacino owns the room when he’s on screen. Pesci’s reserved portrayal of Bufalino is the definition of menacing. Reliable talents such as Anna Paquin, Ray Romano, Harvey Keitel, Jesse Plemons, Bobby Cannavale, Steven Van Zandt, Stephen Graham, and Katharine

Narducci round out a solid supporting cast. Needless to say, there is a lot to take in. You’re dealing with 209 minutes of information, for God’s sake. You get signature manic moments and visceral flairs, but there are plenty of contemplative moments in the midst of the tropes. Maybe Scorsese is reckoning with the cinematic monster he helped create. The Irishman — Rated R. Directed by Martin Scorsese. Starring Robert De Niro, Joe Pesci, Al Pacino, Bobby Cannavale, and Ray Romano.

a la carte THE WAKE UP CART SERVES $4 BREAKFAST BURRITOS DURING MORNING RUSH HOUR

REVIEW

James and Johns Islanders know all too well the ache of getting stuck on Maybank Hwy. between the morning rush hours of 7-9 a.m. The bridge is up. There’s an accident. The red light is interminable. Most mornings, your coffee cup runneth empty half-way through your commute. Wouldn’t it be great to get a refill? Former James Islander Austin Dain witnessed firsthand the lack of fast breakfast options on this stretch. For the past month, he’s set up his Wake Up Cart in front of the Pour House, hawking $4 burritos, a couple of baked goods, homemade granola bars, and fresh coffee Mon., Tues., Wed., and Fri. mornings from 6:3010:30 a.m. You can approach the stand drive-thru style if you’re so inclined, though parking and walking over is also an option. Choose from brisket, turkey sausage, bacon, eggs and potato, or rice and beans. The brisket comes from Black Wood Smokehouse, where Dain does all his food prep. He tries to have 50-60 burritos on hand, plus hot and iced coffee, juice, soda, and water. A burrito and coffee will cost you a cool six buckaroos. And the respite from bumper-to-bumper traffic? Priceless. —Mary Scott Hardaway

Here at the City Paper, we’ve long had a category of restaurants called “Neighborhood Favorites.” Much less pricey than “Upscale Fine Dining” and not quite as ambitious as “Casual Fine Dining,” these are rarely the places you would drive all the way across town for, and they typically don’t make anyone’s list of the city’s 10 “must visit” restaurants. But the food at those spots is solid — sometimes even superb — and the atmosphere is appealing. It’s the type of restaurant that, if you live nearby, you might find yourself ducking into on a regular basis and ordering the same favorite dishes every time. Our enumeration of Neighborhood Favorites in the Dish Dining Guide has ballooned over the past decade. It used to be rare to find a place serving, say, slow-braised lamb shanks or a savory paella outside of

downtown, but over the years a plentitude of worthy mid-level restaurants has popped up in the boroughs on the peninsula and along the main arteries across the rivers. The Glass Onion in West Ashley, which opened on Savannah Highway in 2008, was an early leader in this march of good food out into the neighborhoods. Indeed, it bills itself as “one of Charleston’s original home grown neighborhood-based, locally focused, all natural restaurants.” There have been some changes at the Glass Onion in the decade or so since its founding. Of the three founding partners, only one — Chris Stewart — remains, and he’s now the sole owner. In terms of food and approach, though, much remains the same. A meal still starts with a complimentary slice of sweet cornbread made even sweeter with a generous drizzle of honey, setting the stage for a Southern-themed meal. Stewart is a native of Birmingham, and his food is a bit of a Southern melange, blending the home cooking of his native Alabama with dishes and styles he absorbed while working in fine

dining kitchens first in New Orleans and then in Charleston. Jenny Ruth’s deviled eggs (75 cents per) are named in honor of Stewart’s grandmother, Jenny Ruth Haley, whose garden Stewart credits with teaching him to value fresh local produce. They’re classic Southern deviled eggs, with a smooth, creamy filling whose consistent yellow color is broken only by a few bits of red pepper relish. The New Orleans notes include a splendid bowl of gumbo ($7) — warm, hearty, and brimming with spice. Though chicken gets top billing, there’s a lot more okra and sliced sausage than poultry shreds down amid the savory greenish brown broth, and that’s just fine, for they really carry the bowl. The shrimp toast ($2) is of the dim sum variety, a thick wedge of bread layered with herb-laced shrimp paste then deep fried. You get a crisp, grease-infused bite from the fried continued on page 48

Lists, lists, lists — Charleston is no stranger to topping ‘em. But we think this one is particularly cool, with Thrillist curating a panel of six food experts — writers, producers, podcasters, chefs — from around the country to determine the “12 distinctive restaurants that represent American culture and are constantly pushing food forward creatively.” Maison, Will Love and Vandy Vanderwarker’s Upper King bistro, which opened this March, made the slim list, reviewed (and vetted) by Charlotte-based food writer Kathleen Purvis. To land on their final dozen winners, Thrillist had each panelist take on a different region of the country, evaluating new restaurants based on “how craveable the dishes served were” and the “overall atmosphere of the restaurant and the connection it has with the community.” The panelists chose five to seven semi-finalists, revisited their favorites, and narrowed it down even more, with the Thrillist Food team choosing the final winners. Purvis and co. determined that the bistro checked all the requisite boxes, from the craveable vegetable tart to the Lowcountry’s French Huguenot roots. Read the full review over on Thrillist. —MSH

n AMERICAN 5Church The sister restaurant to 5Church Charlotte, 5Church Charleston is run by exec chef Adam Hodgson and Bravo Top Chef alum Jamie Lynch. While the menu veers pretty standard high-end, approachable, “modern American” fare — think salmon, raw bar items, flatbread — the Market Street spot has made a point to go the extra mile by sourcing ingredients from Lynch’s new six-acre farm located 30 minutes from Charlotte. —Mary Scott Hardaway (Dish, Summer 2019) Lunch, Dinner, & Sun.

and on my visit, the heirloom tomato salad beckoned. Simple and straightforward, it does exactly what one would hope — elevate the pure pleasure of a perfectly ripe, late-summer tomato. When approaching the Nashville-style hot chicken, I started in the shallow end with the quarter bird prepared mild — much like Indian or Thai cuisine, note that even the ‘mild’ has a small touch of heat. Served on a slice of white sandwich bread and accompanied by three lightly brined breadand-butter pickles, the chicken itself is at once crisp and juicy. Arguably, it’s at the hot level that the dish achieves true Nashville distinction. The melange of black pepper, smoked paprika, and sweet sugar hit first, followed by a slow burn at the back of the throat. The chicken’s inherent blandness helps to temper any real intensity, and the heat lingers for just a few seconds. In other words, order it this way if you can.

Favorite continued from page 46 bread, then a creamy, savory burst from the gooey shrimp mixture. The minced red pepper relish on top adds a modest dose of sweetness to an unexpectedly complex morsel. Even more impressive is the okra beignet ($2), which doesn’t look like much at first, just a lumpy, golden brown blob resting in a pool of orange-pink remoulade. But enrobed in the crisp batter are bright green slices of okra, and their smooth, viscous character somehow impart the mouthfeel of a crabcake — an effect heightened by the spicy tang of the remoulade. One should note that the appetizer prices at the Glass Onion are downright reasonable. Six dollars for crispy Brussels sprouts or a bowl of shells and cheese won’t break the bank, and few other places offer two-buck bites like the okra beignets or the shrimp toast — much less ones that are so delicious. A quick survey of deviled eggs on local menus reveals that the standard order ranges from three to six deviled eggs at a rate of $1.40 to $2 each. (Accounting note: In my definition, one hardboiled egg yields two deviled eggs.) At the Glass Onion you can order them onesy twosy for just 75 cents apiece — blissfully free of smoked salmon or truffle oil, I might add. The larger plates follow through on the expectations set by the opening rounds. The pan roasted flounder ($25) couldn’t be cooked any better. The overall plate — golden-seared fish positioned on a lattice of braised green beans atop a mound of thick, cream-laden mashed potatoes — is hearty if unadventurous, but the pure, fresh flavor of the flounder carries the dish. That flounder is fresh from North Carolina waters, and the commitment to using seafood and produce from local purveyors really set the Glass Onion apart from other neighborhood restaurants back in the early days. Stewart came to Charleston to

attend culinary school at Johnson & Wales, and he mentored under the city’s first generation of New Southern chefs — Donald Drake at Magnolia’s and Frank Lee at S.N.O.B. — and then under Mike Lata at FIG. In 2008, he teamed up with another FIG cook, Charles Vincent, and Sarah O’Kelley, a New Orleans kitchen veteran, to take that downtown fine dining sensibility across the Ashley River to a workaday building that formerly housed a used book store. At the time, there were still only a few white tablecloth spots buying their seafood, meats, and produce from local fishermen and suppliers, and the practice was hardly heard of outside of downtown. When I first reviewed the Glass Onion in 2008, I declared that it “under-promises and over-delivers” and termed its food “good, honest cooking” that “the town needs more of.” Looking back, I’m not sure who was dishing out all the bad, dishonest cooking that I was contrasting theirs to, but something about what they were offering struck a chord. Before pivoting to the food, I made a big deal about the “hardly upscale” decor, noting the painted cinderblock wall, corkboard ceilings, and the restroom painted “a color that can only be described as Play-Doh blue.” (This was four months before Lehman Brothers collapsed and almost took the entire financial system with it — the gap between fine dining and simple comfort was broad.) Not so these days. Not even white tablecloth restaurants still have white tablecloths. A chalkboard menu is no longer significant enough to mention, even if it lists shrimp pilau with Benton’s bacon or braised pork shank. O’Kelley departed in 2014 to pursue a career in wine (now the wine director at Edmund’s Oast), and Vincent returned to New Orleans for gigs in the kitchens at Peche and La Petite Grocery. Stewart’s wife, Suzanne, recently became head baker and now makes all of the restaurant’s pastries. The ceiling now has its beams exposed and painted black, and the walls of the restroom,

I can gladly report, have been painted a warm cream color above corrugated metal wainscoting. But there are still paper napkins, and a square of brown paper still lines the table. Fundamentally, the ethos and the quality of the food seems unchanged. Neighborhood restaurants have always walked a fine line, balancing price against quality, formality against comfort, and novelty against the familiar. The Glass Onion, to me, still strikes that balance just right. The menu has settled into a comfortable pattern of standards — gumbo, shells and cheese, fries and bearnaise for starters, shrimp and grits and buttermilk fried quail for mains. Stewart tried to take the deviled eggs off the menu in 2017, but the regulars howled in protest That consistency lets Stewart take a few steps outside the usual neighborhood comfort zone. The recently-added bison carpaccio ($13) offers rounds of deep red, thin-sliced raw bison (from Dr. King’s Farms in North Carolina) topped with housemade potato chips and a generous layer of parmesan wisps. Each bite of the rabbit ragout ($19) delivers a rich mouthful, with deeply ridged gnocchi tossed with shreds of tender rabbit in a dark, well-spiced sauce that brims with tomato, parsley, carrots, and more. There’s a lot going on in that sauce, and all of it is delicious. For me, Glass Onion exemplifies the idea of a Neighborhood Favorite and it’s even exceeded the bounds of that category, making a few of the city’s “must visit” restaurants (including Sean Brock’s, who placed it among his five selections in his “Guide to Charleston” for Lucky Peach in 2016.) It’s comfort food for sure, but not too comfortable, and thanks to a highly personal blend of Alabama, New Orleans, and Lowcountry elements, it has its own characteristic style, too. I only wish it were in my neighborhood.

With wine and beer available, if there’s a bag of Scott’s paprika-dusted fried pork rinds for sale on the counter, grab them to snack on while you await your ’cue. —Vanessa Wolf Serving Lunch, Dinner (daily).

Big Love Local couple behind Cuban Gypsy Pantry expands their business BY MICHAEL PHAM Cuban Gypsy Pantry Entrees: $10-$14.25 Serving: Lunch, Dinner (daily), Breakfast & extended hours (N.Chs. location) 141 Calhoun St. Downtown 5060 Dorchester Road. North Charleston cubangypsypantry.com

CHARLESTON CITY PAPER 11.27.2019

The “big sister” location to downtown’s Cuban Gypsy Pantry is now open at 5060 Dorchester Road. At 4,200 square feet, the second spot is almost five-times larger, allowing for a much different experience than the fast-paced downtown restaurant. Combining owner Will Vivas’ longtime experience in the food industry and his wife Chloe’s expertise in project management and marketing, the couple took a leap of faith after moving to Charleston in 2015, opening the Cuban Gypsy Pantry food truck on King Street and filling a cultural food gap in the Lowcountry. “We started with a food truck to see if people like Cuban food or understand what it is,” Chloe says. “There are a lot of misconceptions about Cuban food versus other Latin food. It’s not traditionally spicy — everyone always asks that — it’s a different flavor

profile than say, Mexican food.” “This gives people an opportunity to try Latin food. I always say, ‘We have steak, brisket, and pork.’ I don’t say it’s the ropa vieja or the pernil, or its traditional name — I make a recognizable connection for new eaters.” Cuban Gypsy Pantry, though, isn’t traditionally Cuban, either. Will is of Cuban background, while Chloe is Hungarian Gypsy. Taking from their “respective pantries” of food knowledge and combining them, Cuban Gypsy Pantry is dedicated to creating both non-traditional and traditional Latin food. One of their menu items, Lomo Saltado, isn’t even a Cuban dish — it’s Peruvian. Will’s extensive knowledge of different Latin cuisines has found its way to Cuban Gypsy’s menu, giving customers, and ultimately Charleston, a chance to taste this array of flavors. Of course, Will doesn’t do it alone. “I bring in my own taste preference and flavor palate, which are very different from Will’s,” Chloe says. “For example, when I cook at home, I cook Mediterranean food. It’s a unique complement to Latin food in its own strange way. That’s why when you come in, you’ll get saffron yellow rice. That’s not traditional in Cuba, you’d get white rice.” One of the most unusual menu items (and a personal favorite) are the Green Fries. Think of a sports bar’s loaded fries, but with cilantro, mustard sauce, dill and sweet pickles, scallions, and pork or beef. It’s a delicious blend of sweet, spicy, tangy, and umami in one plate. The best part about this dish? It was created by Chloe in the food truck while she was pregnant. “Will wasn’t 100 percent sold on the idea,” she says about the Green Fries. “In Hungarian culture, everything’s pickled, so I’m a huge pickle person, but it isn’t something someone would eat in Cuba or another Latin country.” After close to a year working in the food

CHLOE AND WILL VIVAS STARTED THEIR CUBAN GYPSY DREAM IN A FOOD TRUCK, AND NOW THEY HAVE TWO BRICK AND MORTAR LOCATIONS

truck the couple secured their 141 Calhoun St. location and worked both the food truck and restaurant. Eventually, they sold the truck to focus on the brick and mortar, but a 900-square-foot restaurant can only handle so much. It was time to find a larger space. “We’ve done weddings of 100+ people in that tiny little kitchen,” Chloe says. “During dinner service! It’s 900 square feet, only 400 of which is dining space.” With this new, larger location, Cuban Gypsy has the space for large dine-in parties and will offer new dining experiences. A larger space also means a larger kitchen, which allows them to expand their catering reach. As part of a new dining experience, Cuban

Gypsy is introducing family-style dining options for larger parties. The family-style dining options will be platters of whole roasted chickens, pulled pork, and brisket or steak, served with bowls of rice, beans, plantains, and whole salads for sharing. The new space has an open kitchen, so customers can watch fresh salads, Cuban coffees, and desserts being made to order. On Sundays, the restaurant will be closed so they can use the space for private events. They also plan to host cooking classes, so groups can learn to make paella, Cuban coffee, and other CGP specialties. “This is all because two people fell in love,” Chloe says.

The interior offers “a chic dining atmosphere” with a long bar and roll-up doors, as well as art from local artists on the walls. While Noisy Oyster veered more

Gilligan, Hooked leans more Ginger Grant (with a touch of Mary Ann).

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Humans invented the plow in 4,500 BC, the wheel in 4,000 BC, and writing in 3,400 BC. But long before that, by 6,000 BC, they had learned how to brew beer and make psychoactive drugs from plants. Psychopharmacologist Ronald Siegel points to this evidence to support his hypothesis that the yearning to transform our normal waking consciousness is a basic drive akin to our need to eat and drink. Of course, there are many ways to accomplish this shift besides alcohol and drugs. They include dancing, singing, praying, drumming, meditating, and having sex. What are your favorite modes? According to my astrological analysis, it’ll be extra important for you to alter your habitual perceptions and thinking patterns during the coming weeks. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): What’s something you’re afraid of, but pretty confident you could become unafraid of? The coming weeks will be a favorable time to dismantle or dissolve that fear. Your levels of courage will be higher than usual, and your imagination will be unusually ingenious in devising methods and actions to free you of the unnecessary burden. Step one: Formulate an image or scene that symbolizes the dread, and visualize yourself blowing it up with a “bomb” made of a hundred roses. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): The word “enantiodromia” refers to a phenomenon that occurs when a vivid form of expression turns into its opposite, often in dramatic fashion. Yang becomes yin; resistance transforms into welcome; loss morphs into gain. According to my reading of the astrological omens, you Geminis are the sign of the zodiac that’s most likely to experience enantiodromia in the coming weeks. Will it be a good thing or a bad thing? You can have a lot of influence over how that question resolves. For best results, don’t fear or demonize contradictions and paradoxes. Love and embrace them. CANCER (June 21-July 22): There are Americans who speak only one language, English, and yet imagine they are smarter than bilingual immigrants. That fact amazes me, and inspires me to advise me and all my fellow Cancerians to engage in humble reflection about how we judge our fellow humans. Now is a favorable time for us to take inventory of any inclinations we might have to regard ourselves as superior to others; to question why we might imagine others aren’t as worthy of love and respect as we are; or to be skeptical of any tendency we might have dismiss and devalue those who don’t act and think as we do. I’m not saying we Cancerians are more guilty of these sins than everyone else; I’m merely letting you know that the coming weeks are our special time to make corrections. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): “Erotic love is one of the highest forms of contemplation,” wrote the sensually wise poet Kenneth Rexroth. That’s a provocative and profitable inspiration for you to tap into. According to my analysis of the astrological omens, you’re in the Season of Lucky Plucky Delight, when brave love can save you from wrong turns and irrelevant ideas; when the grandeur of amour can be your teacher and catalyst. If you have a partner with whom you can conduct these educational experiments, wonderful. If you don’t, be extra sweet and intimate with yourself. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): In the follow-up story to Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, our heroine uses a magic mirror as a portal into a fantastical land. There she encounters the Red Queen, and soon the two of them are holding hands as they run as fast as they can. Alice notices that despite their great effort, they don’t seem to be moving forward. What’s happening? The Queen clears up the mystery: In her realm, you must run as hard as possible just to remain in the same spot. Sound familiar, Virgo? I’m wondering whether you’ve had a similar experience lately. If so, here’s my advice: Stop running. Sit back, relax, and allow the world to zoom by you. Yes, you might temporarily fall behind. But in the meantime, you’ll get fully recharged. No more than three weeks from now, you’ll be so energized that you’ll make up for all the lost time — and more. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Most sane people wish there could be less animosity between groups

By Rob Brezsny

that have different beliefs and interests. How much better the world would be if everyone felt a generous acceptance toward those who are unlike them. But the problem goes even deeper: Most of us are at odds with ourselves. Here’s how author Rebecca West described it: Even the different parts of the same person do not often converse among themselves, do not succeed in learning from each other. That’s the bad news, Libra. The good news is that the coming weeks will be a favorable time for you to promote unity and harmony among all the various parts of yourself. I urge you to entice them to enter into earnest conversations with each other! SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Poet Cecilia Woloch asks, “How to un-want what the body has wanted, explain how the flesh in its wisdom was wrong?” Did the apparent error occur because of some “some ghost in the mind?” she adds. Was it due to “some blue chemical rushing the blood” or “some demon or god”? I’m sure that you, like most of us, have experienced this mystery. But the good news is that in the coming weeks you will have the power to unwant inappropriate or unhealthy experiences that your body has wanted. Step one: Have a talk with yourself about why the thing your body has wanted isn’t in alignment with your highest good. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Sagittarian composer Ludwig van Beethoven was inclined to get deeply absorbed in his work. Even when he took time to attend to the details of daily necessity, he allowed himself to be spontaneously responsive to compelling musical inspirations that suddenly welled up in him. On more than a few occasions, he lathered his face with the nineteenth-century equivalent of shaving cream, then got waylaid by a burst of brilliance and forgot to actually shave. His servants found that amusing. I suspect that the coming weeks may be Beethoven-like for you, Sagittarius. I bet you’ll be surprised by worthy fascinations and subject to impromptu illuminations. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): During the next eleven months, you could initiate fundamental improvements in the way you live from day to day. It’s conceivable you’ll discover or generate innovations that permanently raise your life’s possibilities to a higher octave. At the risk of sounding grandiose, I’m tempted to predict that you’ll celebrate at least one improvement that is your personal equivalent of the invention of the wheel or the compass or the calendar. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): The only thing we learn from history is that we never learn anything from history. Philosopher Georg Hegel said that. But I think you will have an excellent chance to disprove this theory in the coming months. I suspect you will be inclined and motivated to study your own past in detail; you’ll be skilled at drawing useful lessons from it; and you will apply those lessons with wise panache as you re-route your destiny. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): In his own time, poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807–1882) was acclaimed and beloved. At the height of his fame, he earned $3,000 per poem. But modern literary critics think that most of what he created is derivative, sentimental, and unworthy of serious appreciation. In dramatic contrast is poet Emily Dickinson (1830–1886). Her writing was virtually unknown in her lifetime, but is now regarded as among the best ever. In accordance with astrological omens, I invite you to sort through your own past so as to determine which of your work, like Longfellow’s, should be archived as unimportant or irrelevant, and which, like Dickinson’s, deserves to be a continuing inspiration as you glide into the future. Homework: You have the power to regenius yourself. Guidance: https://tinyurl.com/ ReGeniusYourself

pulse RANKY TANKY EARNS 2020 GRAMMY NOMINATION FOR BEST REGIONAL ROOTS ALBUM

ART STAR AVOIDED PERFORMING LIVE BEFORE RELEASING THEIR DEBUT EP, AKIN TO SIN, OVER THE SUMMER

High Art Charleston’s Art Star weirds up mainstream indie guitar rock on debut album BY VINCENT HARRIS Art Star w/ Guitar Andrei Andrei Andrei, Glass Sat. Nov. 30 9 p.m. $5 The Royal American

If there’s such a thing as controlled chaos, that’s what’s happening on Akin to Sin, the debut album by Charleston band Art Star. When asked, the band often refers to what they do as noise rock but their music is more complex and far more melodic than that. Bassist Christian Starr and drummer Sonny Reyes lay down tangled tempos with pinpoint precision. Over this roiling storm of rhythm, guitarists Joe Suthers and Liz Southwell unleash hell, pounding out barbed wire, visceral riffs that turn themselves inside out. As riveting as the music is, it all serves to shine the spotlight on singer Mia Mendez, the group’s startling and dynamic vocalist. On Akin to Sin’s five tracks, she sneers, she screams, she wails, and she occasionally lets out a breathy, blurry delivery that almost makes the quieter moments sound like dream pop. Most often, Mendez’s lyrics are jagged, impressionistic shards, as on the opening track, “A Mythology out of Practice.” “Pricked my tongue on a cactus,” she sings,

“Left my love on a mattress/ Burnt holes in nylons/ Melted blood in bronze/ I counted my fears/ Collected my tears.” To deliver those evocative phrases, Mendez produces vocals that are somehow both heartfelt and exaggerated for effect, a combination that she readily acknowledges. “I definitely admire a lot of theatrical vocalists, and I’m a very emotional person,” she says. “So I think it’s easy to translate that with my vocals. I feel really dramatic, I guess.” Given the power of her performance, it’s no wonder that the rest of the band essentially formed Art Star to work with Mendez. Four of the band members played together in various projects before this, but the new group allowed them to move away from the heavier, more extreme music they’d been making and to collaborate with Mendez. “We’d always wanted to make music with Mia,” Starr says. “So it was just an idea to have her in it and explore some genres that we hadn’t really had a chance to in our other bands.” “I think we came to the table with open minds,” Mendez adds, “and just allowed ourselves to explore different ideas and sounds and be a little bit more experimental.” Art Star purposely took their time writing the songs on Akin to Sin, taking more than a

year to flesh them out and arrange them as a group before heading to Legitimate Business recording studio in Greensboro to work with engineer Kris Hilbert. The idea was to take the melodic, straight-ahead elements of pop and rock, then deconstruct them until they were almost unrecognizable. Almost. “I think it was Christian who also wanted to tie in some pop feel and more traditional song structure elements,” Southwell says. “We’d start songs around these crazier, noisier riffs and work them out into more traditional alternative-style songs. Our entire concept was to throw a wrench in the gears and tangle things up. We like to get weird.” With the riffs and vocals in place, it was the drummer’s job to make sure the transitions were effective and unexpected. “The idea was to have it be familiar but a little jarring or even give people anxiety about what’s going to happen next,” Reyes says. “I think that juxtaposition is really interesting. What happens a lot of the time when we’re writing is that someone will bring a guitar idea, and I like to take what they’re bringing to the table and think about the big picture; about how the songs are going to continued on page 65

Nominations for the 62nd annual Grammy Awards were announced Nov. 20 and Charleston-based band Ranky Tanky earned a nom for Best Regional Roots album with Good Time. The album, released in July, came as a surprise to our music writer, Vincent Harris, who didn’t expect a big release from a band who had been working so much in the past two years. But what a welcome surprise it was. The Gullah-inspired jazz, soul, funk, and gospel album features Quiana Parler (vocals), Charlton Singleton (trumpet, vocals), Clay Ross (guitar, vocals), Kevin Hamilton (bass), and Quentin E. Baxter (drums). When City Paper talked to Ranky Tanky following the album’s release, they noted that a “garage band mentality” kept them in the zone and inspired to create Good Time. Hamilton told CP: “The attitude is ‘Let’s just have fun with it and see what sounds good.’” —Connelly Hardaway

COLUMN | BY HEATH ELLISON

The Real Folk Blues We must advocate for better mental health care among musicians and other creatives

Too many times over the past 18 months, the Charleston music community has felt the overwhelming pain of loss after the deaths of beloved members of the local scene who struggled with mental illness. Radio DJ Richard “Box” Bachschmidt’s death in Mt. Pleasant last June renewed a public discussion about suicide. After getting clean and staying sober for years while also struggling with depression, bassist Chris Lewey lost his life in a brief relapse. Drew Gardner’s death last month affected anyone who witnessed his earnest hard work on creative projects. In the music community, we did what we’re trained to do in these situations: We said our goodbyes, wrote our tributes, and pushed on without enough discussion on the larger implications. The correlation has been difficult to confirm, but studies do suggest that artists, performers, actors, musicians, or any creatives are more prone to depression and anxiety. And resources aimed specifically at creative industry professionals attempting to cope with mental health challenges are incredibly scarce. Bill Harrison, a musician and psychotherapist at the Claret Center in Chicago, is one of the few therapists who advocates for artist-centric therapy. “The nature of the performance professions correlate highly with anxiety issues and depression issues,” Harrison “Given the rising told the City Paper. “Those mood disorders are not under evidence suggesting the exclusive domain of artists, but they do show up frea correlation between quently and I think there are reasons for it. Trying to make a living in those professions is particularly difficult. There’s no creativity and career path that you might have in business, in sales, in the depression, why have corporate world.” As Harrison notes, there are resources for athletes strugwe not attempted gling with mental health. We know about the psychologito create the same cal imapcts of repeated physical trauma on professional athletes. Organizations like the NCAA have begun to make resources for the in mental health awareness for athletes. music community?” strides The same goes for the veteran community. We know about post traumatic stress disorder and suicide among soldiers, and national efforts have focused on providing resources for them to cope. This goes beyond the Deptartment of Veterans Affairs, with third-party organizations like the Wounded Warrior Project advocating for mental health care among vets. So, given the rising evidence suggesting a correlation between creativity and depression, why have we not attempted to create the same resources for the music community? Maybe we can blame the tortured artist stereotype. Maybe we can blame our forerunners in the press. Music media has consistently romanticized artists suffering from depression without drawing a distinction between their work and their life. Unknown Pleasures, Either/Or, Pink Moon, In Utero — each of these classic albums is tied to their creators’ chaotic mental states. As critics and journalists, many of us are quick to compliment them. What we have never stopped to consider was whether we have encouraged artists to be depressed or not share their emotions in an honest way outside of music. We forgot (or never thought) to say something more important than a positive statement in an album review: We may love your talent, but we love you more. Art and life do not need to parallel each other for both to be great. Creativity and depression are not mutually exclusive. A comprehensive database of therapists that cater to artists may not exist, but we can demand that unions like the American Federation of Musicians begin speaking out. We can ask medical professionals to continued on page 65

I want to structure the song in a way that I think is interesting to play but also interesting to listen to.” If it sounds like these people really thought out their sound, it’s because they did. Before they recorded Akin to Sin, the group sent their demos to Hilbert so he could start thinking about his role in their sound, as well. “We just wanted to make sure that it wouldn’t be a surprise to him what we were going to record,” Reyes says, “so he could have his own ideas of how to help us with producing it.” “Kris is such a good friend of ours that recording with him is always a great time,” Starr adds. “He’s always down for anything, and I don’t think that the record would have turned out as well as it did if it wasn’t for him being down with being weird.” If their music could be called “weird,” the band’s approach to their career could be considered even weirder. Art Star didn’t play a live show until the summer, around the time their album was released, and Suthers says that the decision, like almost everything else the band does, was deliberate. “It was really important to have a finished product to present to people before we were playing shows,” Suthers says. “We had all these ideas we wanted to pursue, and we felt that it wouldn’t be doing the big picture justice if we were to start playing shows before we had recorded material out.” Considering all their serious talk, the members of the band all seem to truly enjoy what they do, and there’s a playful side to the group that pops up often in conversation. That’s perhaps best summed up by Starr’s answer when asked why the band approaches their music the way they do. “Why not?”

The Gatsby Orchestra was started by members of the Joe Clarke Big Band, Bill McSweeney, and Jack Pettit as an ode to the beloved sounds of 1920s music. “There is a great deal of difference in the sound of this band versus what they played in the 1920s,” says Joe Clarke, co-owner of Forte Jazz Lounge. “But it has a charm all its own.” We hear the sounds from this era even when we aren’t aware of it. They are often in the background of movies and radio channels, but sometimes they go virtually unnoticed. Joe Clarke, alongside his wife and Forte co-owner Rosie, is making certain that the sounds of the 1920s never fade. “The Gatsby Orchestra at Forte will be like nothing anybody has heard in decades,” says Clarke. “It is absolutely America’s first popular music.” And Bill McSweeney agrees. “This is the music that kept the crowd up ‘til dawn,” says McSweeney. “The real beauty of this endeavor is that for the first time in generations this music will be heard without the filter of 1920s recording and playback technology.” Jazz was, and is, a highly celebrated genre of music, and now it is coming back to the forefront of Charleston entertainment thanks to Forte Jazz Lounge. “This is our niche,” says McSweeney. “This is faithful representation from the original charts of the original sound of the Jazz Age — we hope you don’t miss it.” —Abrie Richison FRIDAY

Eccentric Upstate-native jam band the Mezz has established a prominent usage of funk, psychedelics, and improvisational rhythm in their music and live performances. In 2017, they came out with their first album, The Mezz, which blended rock, singer-songwriter, and trippy guitars. At the time, the band consisted of Ryan Doolittle, Dylan Rogers, Zach Todd, and Austin Woodard, who all came from widely different musical backgrounds and influences. As of August 2018, they began to perform as a three piece, without Rogers. When first starting out, they quickly gained recognition for their lively performances, which consisted of improvisational jams, challenging covers of eclectic songs, and vivid light shows. Their top song, “Some Kind of Chemistry,” is a light-hearted surf-rocker accompanied by a rich vocal performance. Other songs, such as “Let’s Get Funky,” became a mainstay on the “Funky Friday” radio show on Sunny 103.5. The Mezz thrives on guitar solos and riffs to an extent that they become a rather dreamy band that extemporizes everything within a rock melody. —Matt Keady SATURDAY

PSYCHEDELIC COUNTRY | Futurebirds What’s the best way to describe Futurebirds? Cosmic country, psychedelic jukebox music, or maybe a gallon of THC poured into a pickup truck’s gas tank? It really doesn’t matter; if the listener gets hung up on the description, they’ll miss the music. Albums like Baba Yaga and Portico II have a simple pleasure to them based on a little Pink Floyd, a little Dolly Parton, and a lot of heart. Futurebirds’ latest single, “My Broken Arm,” suggests a more down-home flair than some of their earlier material, which veered toward the spacy side of cosmic country. The track, recorded at Rialto Row in Charleston, has some local vibes peeking through the cracks — specifically in the folksy riffs played hard and fast by an electric guitar. Singer/ guitarist Carter Kings’ raspy refrain, “But, the money’s no good,” is sung with a weariness reserved for travelling band vets. According to Futurebirds, more music is on the way and expected sometime in 2020. —Heath Ellison SATURDAY

JIMI HENDRIX COVERS | Third Stone Trio Jimi Hendrix is arguably the most influential and groundbreaking guitarist in the history of music. In his wake, a long line of guitar players have been inspired by his sound and have used it as they please, sometimes filtering it through their own lenses. Charleston resident and guitarist extraordinaire Wallace Mullinax carries a deep love and reverence for Hendrix. With his group Third Stone Trio, he’s taking the musical high road and a more literal approach to the Hendrix repertoire on Jimi’s birthday, Nov. 27. “This band and this performance is a great opportunity to focus on the whole catalog, parts of it that are typically overlooked. It’s about conveying emotion through sound and we want to connect back to that source,” says Mullinax. The band is comprised of drummer Jonathan Peace and bassist Oliver Goldstein, with the intention of truly recreating the energy and spiritual direction of Jimi’s trio. “As musicians, we have developed so much context for everything and when we strip that away, it becomes so pure. What is the point of this chord from a philosophical standpoint?” Wallace asks. The guitarist is a seasoned, virtuosic player in a multitude of musical acts but this music in particular brings out something different. “It makes you remember why you wanted to do it in the first place,” he says. “A rejuvenation of your musical soul. You start asking different questions, you know? Not how, but why?” —Jeffrey Wilson WEDNESDAY

ROCK | Drivin’ N’ Cryin’ Being an outlier has gone from a curse to a blessing for the veteran Athens band Drivin’ N’ Cryin’. When they first emerged in the mid-1980s, the group was a little too heavy for college radio, not heavy enough for the metal market, and a little too rootsy for the ultra-hip alternative rock scene. All they had was a killer sound that was flexible enough to take in folk, hard-rock, and country, plus one of the best songwriters of the era in singer/guitarist Kevn Kinney. At the time, the fact that you couldn’t easily classify the band meant that their commercial success was limited, despite the unassailable excellence of albums like Mystery Road and Fly My Courageous. Hell, they couldn’t even sell out when they tried straight-ahead Southern rock on 1993’s Smoke. Instead, the band, led by Kinney and bassist Tim Nielsen, simply persevered through trends and time, playing shows and releasing albums independently, keeping their devoted fanbase, and garnering new fans along the way. Nowadays, Drivin’ N’ Cryin’ is doing better than ever; they’ve essentially created their own cottage industry with a series of independently released EPs, albums, and a 2017 expanded reissue of Mystery Road. Plus, their live show remains a reliably unpredictable roller coaster. Depending on the band’s mood, you might hear an all-favorites set, a string of new material, some killer covers, or a combination of the three. But the show will always include their greatest song, the perennial misfit anthem “Straight To Hell,” which will probably be stuck in your head after reading this. —Vincent Harris FRIDAY
