Cleanup Crew

Market Street was once home to an unlikely feathered friend BY SKYLER BALDWIN

CHARLESTON CITY PAPER 02.12.2020

The markets of downtown Charleston were once the hub of commerce and community in this corner of 18th century Carolina. Between vendors plying their wares, fish and meat purveyors were commonplace, as were the dogs that lingered for a few scraps. The banishment of canines in 1799 due to rabies and the opening of a beef market a few blocks from the water in 1807 would attract a brand new flock of freeloaders.

4

Despite the animals being slaughtered outside of town, butchers still cut meat for customers at markets downtown, leaving them with leftovers that had nowhere to go. Nowhere that is, but up. “Waste and leftovers were inevitable,” Charleston County Public Library historian Nic Butler writes on his Charleston Time Machine website, the go-to resource for deep dives into offbeat chapters in Charleston’s past. “But, without dogs to snap up the scraps, and without the conveniences of modern garbage collection, how could the city keep the market clean? Enter the black vulture.” Charleston eagles, as they were known, became the janitors of historic Charleston’s Market Street. Sadly, the important role they played in keeping the streets clean and free of carrion has been largely forgotten. That’s where Butler and his Time Machine blog and podcast come in. While researching the history of the city’s market, Butler started seeing the vultures mentioned, and as he pulled that thread, he found it was much longer than he first thought. “The vultures were here before the people, and the people came here and basically mistreated and ignored much of the wildlife,” Butler says. “But then, the people at some point in the 18th century realized there was a valuable symbiotic relationship between the community of people and the community of vultures. Instead of chasing them off, they said, ‘Well, let’s make use of them and their natural inclinations.’” Learning as much about the birds as he could, Butler published a two-part story documenting the rise and fall of Charleston’s “urban vultures” in July 2017. This week, Butler is plucking that information from the Time Machine for the spotlight for the Southeastern Wildlife Exposition (Sat., 11 a.m. at 68 Calhoun St.). “We are literally just across the street from the Gaillard,” the hub of SEWE scuttle, Butler says. “And, we’ve got meeting space and

programs going on all the time, and we’ve got me, the in-house historian. It seemed like a natural opportunity to establish a partnership, and I look forward to continuing it and even expanding it in the future.” Butler’s program shares its topic with his previous articles, but it will be different from how he’s shared the information in the past. “I’m not just going to read the text of the article,” he promises. “I’m going to use a bird-friendly phrase and wing it. I’m going to have more images and talk more about the context. Where were they found, and how many were there? How would they move from one part of the city to another?” There were a lot of questions Butler wanted to answer with this program, including, “Where are they now?” As most marketgoers have probably noticed, there aren’t flocks of these feathered friends hanging around anymore. “Frankly, the city leaders, including the mayor, were just embarrassed that visitors from ‘modern cities’ were coming and seeing this third-world cleanup crew and thinking, ‘Wow, Charleston certainly is behind the times,’ ” Butler explains. “It wasn’t necessarily that the vultures by themselves were bad. The vultures were only there because the butchers were cutting stuff up and throwing it on the ground and expecting the vultures to pick it up. By saying to the butchers, ‘You can’t just throw that down,’ the city got rid of the vultures.” Or so people thought. As Butler puts it, the vultures were only ever acting on their instincts, and the city was leveraging that to its advantage. The birds were hungry, and the butchers provided an easy meal. When the butchers stopped providing, the vultures went elsewhere, but not too far. “It’s pretty rare to see them in downtown Charleston today,” Butler says. “But, you get off the busy streets, and you’re likely to see a vulture or two on the side of the road. It’s not that uncommon to see 10 or 20 vultures

gathered together with some roadkill just outside of the suburbs of our community.” The session, he says, is his opportunity to not only share the information he has found, but also the pictures he has of the vultures both past and present. “History is something the library is committed to doing,” Butler says. “I’m bringing all facets of local history to the public

whether it’s animal history or food history, so I look forward to the challenge of coming up with more materials that would be fun and interesting for the people of Charleston and the visitors for SEWE.” To keep up with Butler’s latest historical dives, keep tabs on the library calendar and subscribe to the Charleston Time Machine newsletter and podcast.

GRAHAM AND SCOTT VOTE TO CLEAR TRUMP

6

The two U.S. senators from South Carolina, Lindsey Graham and Tim Scott, both voted to acquit President Donald Trump on Wed. Feb. 5 after a three-week impeachment trial during which Republican leaders refused to allow additional witnesses or evidence to be considered. Graham’s vote was never in doubt; he has been an outspoken supporter of Trump throughout the proceedings, immediately dismissing the idea of fulfilling the Constitutional duty for the impeachment before the Senate was handed what amounts to an indictment by leaders of the Democratically controlled House. “The President was acquitted today by the Senate and will be exonerated by the American people in November when he is reelected to a second term,” Graham said in a statement. Senators are called to “try impeachments” in the Constitution, voting on whether to impeach and remove based on the initial charges and any additional evidence presented. South Carolina’s other U.S. senator, Scott, also joined his Republican colleagues in voting to acquit the President. U.S. Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) was the only GOP member to cross party lines to cast a vote to convict Trump of abuse of power. On the floor of the Senate on Wednesday, Scott was not as dismissive as Graham, instead attempting to lay out a defense. After accusing Congressional Democrats of deception, Scott made a case against impeachment based on a strong economy and opportunity zones. Trump was accused of obstruction of Congress and abuse of power after he pressured Ukranian leaders to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden before the Democratic primary and the 2020 election. The facts of the interactions laid out in media reports, investigations, and by the president’s own aides were never contested — that Trump withheld aid to Ukraine pending assurances of a Biden inquiry. But nonetheless, Republicans in the Senate pushed to hurry the hearing and acquit the president. With little to say about the facts before the Senate, Scott retreated to talking points accusing Democrats of trying to steal the election. U.S. Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine), one of the Republican members who was undecided until Tuesday, told CBS that she thought the president learned his lesson and would “be much more cautious in the future.” Shortly after Republicans voted to clear him, Trump tweeted a mocked-up Time magazine cover showing campaign signs teasing his endless reign as president. —Sam Spence

LLF'S GOOD BUSINESS SUMMIT EXPLORES LOCAL BUSINESS IN AN ONLINE WORLD

The seventh annual Good Business Summit took place downtown on Thurs. Feb. 6. Hosted by Lowcountry Local First (LLF), the day-long event presented a series of panels and workshops that discuss various aspects of business in the modern world. “We believe and hope that these sorts of events that address unique issues and opportunities, while still working towards the general goal of using business as a force for good, can reap major benefits for the Lowcountry as a whole,” Eileen Peters of LLF says. Websites, social media, and old-fashioned creativity are invaluable tools for many entrepreneurs. In one morning panel, moderated by Katie Wells of K.E.W. Solutions, the impacts of these resources were discussed among a group of small business owners. “How does that impact your business, now that online is so prevalent?” Wells asked the group. Steve Lesniak, owner of furniture store Celadon Home, mentioned the 36,500 followers his business has on Instagram, but concluded that once people enter the store, it’s all about customer service. “Whether it’s product, hiring and firing, location, everything is customer service,” he said. “Would you mind sharing how you had to evolve with the times?” Wells asked. “We have evolved to talk more about us and being really vulnerable and really humanizing ourselves,” said Erik Holmberg, founder of J. Stark, citing the damage Hurricane Matthew caused to their workshop. “I think most people relate to that and want to sort of champion us or be a fan of ours through that.” During the Q&A that followed, an audience member asked how a business can be found in a sea of competition. Liz Rennie, owner of the Charleston Mattress, recommended finding something small that can set a business apart for better search engine optimization. “For us, I’d say it’s that we still build flippable mattresses that are finished on both sides,” she said. “That’s just something that people who are old-school are like, ‘I’m looking for flippables.’ So, they put that in and that’s going to generate more attention for us.” According to Peters, the Good Business Summit sees increasing attendance numbers every year. “By changing the date of the Good Business Summit from September, in the middle of hurricane season, to February, a time when a lot of people are still planning out those New Year's Business Resolutions and goals, we were able to reach a lot more people who might not have been able to make it in years past.” —Heath Ellison

“ALIENATING” ANTI-LGBTQ MEASURES COULD EXACERBATE HUMAN TRAFFICKING FIGHT

As the state legislature moves forward with more teeth against forced prostitution, there are things to consider beyond fines and penalties, at least one advocate says. Known as human trafficking, forced prostitution is a centuries-old problem that remains persistent today as abusive partners pimp their victims, families sell sex services of children, and, in more rare cases, children and adults are abducted for illicit sex rings. Human trafficking can also include forced, unpaid labor. Recent headlines in South Carolina showed reports of human trafficking cases have surged more than 360 percent as the public has become more aware of the nefarious trade. But as the Statehouse moves toward ratification of a bill that creates an automatic legal defense of human trafficking for minors involved in prostitution and increases penalties for soliciting or pimping sex services, there are other items to consider. Lawmakers’ other actions on sex education and introduction of bills aimed at transgender people could be proving counter-productive in the fight against human trafficking, according to South Carolina Coalition Against Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault executive director Sara Barber. “When you talk about trafficking, youre talking about already-vulnerable youth who are at risk,” she said, adding that there is a link between trafficking and ideas around sexual consent and respect in relationships. Citing “bathroom bills” of years past that sought to mandate public restroom goers use the bathroom of their birth sex, and a current House bill called the Youth Gender Reassignment Prevention Act, Barber said those bills send a clear message to LGBTQ youth: We don’t support you. “All those kinds of policies serve to alienate LGBTQ youth. They further the bias against them in school and in their communities. We should support people whoever they are and however they identify,” Barber said. “If you have policies that are further alienating or leading to lack of support … which means they are far more likely to be homeless and far more likely to be victims of trafficking, you have a big old circle going on.” Another idea some states are exploring, legalizing sex work, is not even on the radar for some lawmakers and advocates. Decriminalization of sex work has been considered in Maine, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and the city of Washington D.C. “That’s a horrible idea,” S.C. Sen. Katrina Shealy (R-Lexington) said. “This is a good Southern state and we’re not talking about legalizing selling sex in South Carolina.” Shealy has led many of the efforts to increase prostitution penalties, including a bill that has recently passed both the House and Senate that also creates an automatic legal defense of human trafficking for minors involved in prostitution. That bill, S. 194, is awaiting conference between the legislative bodies. South Carolina Human Trafficking Task Force coordinator Kathryn Moorehead said that while she is aware of other states exploring legalizing sex work, there needs to be “more research.” “We need to have success as much as possible, and be really strategic about it,” she said, adding that there appears to be some interest in creating a registry for those working in strip clubs among other states and that’s something “we could potentially discuss.” “That would be a very heavy lift in our state and I don’t think we’re there yet,” Barber said. “There’s a very clear argument that some people engage in sex work voluntarily and there is the other argument that a majority of people engaged in sex work have been trafficked.” —Lindsay Street

Three Questions With Presidential Candidate …

Joe Biden Until the S.C. Democratic Party primary on Sat. Feb. 29, we will publish candidate responses to three questions on issues facing local voters along with a brief analysis of each from two CofC professors. For more, visit charlestoncitypaper.com/threequestions 1. What would you do now and in the future to address climate change’s impact, particularly for poor and rural residents of coastal communities? While everyone is feeling the effects of climate change, in the Lowcountry you’re on the frontlines. It’s impacting everything from your health to your local economy to your overall quality of life. That’s why my plan invests $1.7 trillion over 10 years to move our country to a 100 percent clean-energy economy with net-zero emissions by 2050. My plan creates more than 10 million good-paying jobs and holds polluters directly accountable for the harm they’ve done. On day one of my presidency, I’ll ban new offshore drilling and I’ll immediately rejoin the Paris Agreement, restoring American leadership and pushing other nations to do more. 2. How would you deal with enduring, stark racial inequalities in places like South Carolina? Rooting out hate, injustice, and racism got me into politics and remains my North Star. I’ll rebuild the middle class so that this time everyone comes along. I’ll triple funding for Title I schools and make universal pre-K available to all, so no child’s future is determined by their parent’s income or zip code. I’ll ensure everyone has access to affordable health care. I’ll build an inclusive economy with better access to capital for black-owned businesses. And, I’ll apply Congressman Clyburn’s 10-20-30 formula to ensure funding goes to communities with persistent poverty. 3. Why should South Carolina voters support you Feb. 29? I have a deep relationship with South Carolina that goes beyond politics — it’s very important to me. Character is on the ballot this election. We all know who Donald Trump is. We have to show him who we are — and what we believe in. My vision for America is based on equal opportunity for all. Treating everyone with dignity. A middle class where everyone comes along. I have a proven ability to bring people together and deliver for the middle class. At this defining moment in our nation’s history, it’s going to take strong leadership to restore the soul of our nation and unite the country.

CHARLESTON CITY PAPER 02.12.2020

According to the experts …

Sat. Feb. 29 has likely been circled on Joe Biden’s calendar for a long time. It is the date of the critically important South Carolina presidential primary and the best chance for the former vice president to take control of the Democratic nomination. Certainly there are reasons for Biden to feel good about his prospects in South Carolina. First, Biden has considerable history in the state. He and his wife Jill have vacationed at Kiawah Island for many years, and Biden has strong relationships with South Carolina’s political establishment. Biden is good friends with Congressman Jim Clyburn and famously eulogized the state’s two longest serving U.S. senators, Democrat Fritz Hollings and Republican Strom Thurmond. Perhaps the most important reason for Biden’s strength in South Carolina is his support from the state’s African-American voters. In our book on the South Carolina primary, we demonstrate the important role African-American voters play in the Democratic primary. For example, in 2016 African Americans made up over 60% of primary voters and 86% of black voters cast ballots for Hillary Clinton. Biden is hoping to replicate this high level of support in 2020. Biden has enjoyed support from the state’s African-American voters for a few key reasons. He served two terms as the vice president for the nation’s first black president — Barack Obama. In addition, South Carolina Democrats — including black voters — tend to be more moderate and Biden is seen as one of the most moderate candidates in a crowded Democratic field. Finally, defeating Donald Trump is a high priority for South Carolina’s AfricanAmerican community, and Biden has been the candidate who has polled best against Trump in head-to-head contests. Yet there is some cause for concern in the Biden camp. Although he has led in all of the roughly two dozen polls that have been taken dating back to last year, a few recent polls show Biden losing ground, with Tom Steyer and Bernie Sanders on the rise. In the remaining weeks of the campaign Biden will need a strong showing in New Hampshire, additional statewide endorsements, and a good debate performance in Charleston on Feb. 25. Our book finds all three matter in the South Carolina primary. Should Biden close the campaign strong, we think he has an excellent shot of winning. Jordan Ragusa and Gibbs Knotts are political science professors at the CofC. They recently published First in the South: Why South Carolina’s Presidential Primary Matters.

GIFT THE GIFT OF HEMP THIS VALENTINES DAY!

The Blotter is taken from Charleston Police Department reports. We’ve added a cartoon and a little commentary. We’ve added a little humor, too. No one has been found guilty. This is not a court of law.

When asked to place himself on a scale of intoxication, zero being the lowest and 10 being the highest, a man told officers he was at a seven during a field sobriety test. You’re off to a terrible start already, sir.

Police were alerted to a woman at a West Ashley bar screaming and flipping tables over. Officers noted that this resulted in a “ruined experience for several patrons.” We also hate when the experience of a dark dive bar is ruined by things that usually happen in dark dive bars.

“You sold your soul to Reynolds’ Tobacco and now your ass is mine,” read one email a Daniel Island resident received. According to the recipient, the offender lives in California and they met in 1981. We feel like there’s a lot of context that’s missing in the report about the relationship these two have.

One man broke into another’s downtown apartment. Officers arrived while the two were engaged in a verbal argument after the offender dumped unnamed liquids on the floor, threatened to harm the victim, and broke a curtain rod. Not to be weird, but we want to know what those liquids were. Officers responded to a local hospital after getting a call about trespassing. When the officer arrived at the emergency room, he immediately recognized the woman in question. Security said she trespassed, police said she trespassed, she said she trespassed — it was a good time. She was arrested.

Two men broke into a downtown business and stole a pushcart holding 163 newspapers. The papers were described as being from Feb. 2 and having a picture of a man on a bicycle on the cover. Guys, we know The Post and Courier paywall is a pain, but come on. A couple of kids walked into a downtown corner store, each grabbed a 15 pack of Mountain Dew and walked out. The kids reportedly put the drinks on the ground, reentered the store, and grabbed a few more, totaling five cases of stolen drinks. Why didn’t anyone stop these hooligans?

A woman was accused of shoplifting from a downtown store Sunday. The owner said she took $18 worth of jewelry before leaving the store without paying. We aren’t sure how many carats $18 can get you, but it can’t be many. In bigger shoplifting news, 31 articles of clothing were stolen from a separate downtown store, with a total price tag of $1,371.45. We get it, you’re the better criminal, stop showing off. A James Island man reported his vehicle had been vandalized Sunday. His black 2019 Genuine Scooter had its gas line cut, and parts of the transmission were missing. Whoever did this must be prepping for a serious moped garage build. Police received a call Thurs. Jan. 27 from someone who wanted to file an incident report in reference to a student pulling the fire alarm at a downtown school, causing an evacuation and a response from two Charleston Fire Department fire trucks. If they were just seeking attention, it sounds like they got more than they bargained for.

Democracy How

PUBLISHER

Important to understand how we vote and where things could potentially go wrong

 S

CHARLESTON CITY PAPER 02.12.2020

outh Carolina won’t face the same election night apocalypse in its Feb. 29 primary that we saw last week in Iowa as untested software breakdowns sent state Democratic Party officials scrambling. But the mess in the Hawkeye State can shine a light into one of the darker corners of our democracy: how we cast our votes. South Carolina’s presidential primary has little in common with Iowa’s first-in-the-nation contest. Most obviously, Iowans indicate their presidential preference in a caucus. This year, the Iowa Democratic Party contracted with a third-party developer on the ill-fated election reporting software. In S.C., since at least 2008, state election officials have operated a traditional presidential primary using standardized election machines statewide. The fallout from Iowa mostly stems from how we pick nominees. The first caucus has more to do with capturing immediate media attention than doing democracy. The results will eventually be recorded all the same. Nonetheless, we created this wonderful, if fragile, process where a few hours of “failure to report” can blow up the media cycle for which these campaigns spent a year or more preparing. In S.C., election officials seem to be confident that things will go off without a hitch. The Feb. 29 presidential primary is even less complicated than November’s municipal elections — the same 10 candidates will appear on every primary voter’s ballot across the state. “Just as much prep goes into it as any other election,” says Joseph Debney, the executive director of the Charleston

12

County Board of Elections and Voter Registration. That’s not to say, though, that South Carolina’s election system is above reproach. Last year, the state inked a $51 million contract with Election Systems and Software to replace thousands of voting machines with new two-stage machines that generate paper receipts for each voter. With one other vendor, Dominion, the two companies’ machines were tasked with processing upwards of 150 million voters — about 80 percent of all votes cast in the U.S., according to a 2017 University of Pennsylvania report. Chummy industry maneuvers that helped close the deal aside, critics maintain the new machines are vulnerable to hacks like any computer. They also claim proprietary software that reads and stores the votes amounts to an indecipherable black box, even for public interest watchdogs. In a state where our leaders can’t decide whether or how to sell off a publicly owned power company, isn’t what has happened in South Carolina tantamount to privatizing our democracy to a corporation without much of a thought? Debney, for what it’s worth, says he was happy with how the new machines performed in Charleston County last year. “We just want to make sure it’s done correctly,” Debney says. Want first-hand experience with how we run our elections on the local level? Consider being a poll worker. You may have to take a day off work, but you’ll get paid $135 and you may be able to help improve our elections in the future. Visit charlestoncounty.org/departments/bevr to learn more.

The Southeastern Wildlife Exposition (SEWE) draws a melting pot of people to Charleston: environmentalists, eco-tourists, and mostly, folks who’d rather think of themselves as “outdoorsmen.” Each group is on the frontlines of habitat loss and fluctuating ecosystems. From hunting the nuisance armadillo, to modeling sea level rise for at-risk communities or joining a beach cleanup, we are all doing our part to protect what we love. Whether for hobby or career, these efforts are not just for the preservation of the land and seas around us — a lot of it has to do with a deep-seeded passion for our culture and heritage. And outdoorsmen are some of the most passionate when it comes to protecting our wild places. When you come to the Holy City, though, are you bringing that passion with you? Are you living it? In many ways, the beauty and bounty of the Lowcountry is in the hands of the folks who visit Charleston for festivals like SEWE. One of the areas that depends on your support, your passion, is our local seafood — namely, our marine habitats and the commercial fishing way of life. In Charleston, we’re proud that many of our local seafood businesses are multi-generational fishing families. I know SEWE visitors don’t need me to articulate the importance of flourishing ecosystems. You already know the interdependence of vibrant habitats and the preservation of these time-honored ways of life. But these are both under siege by visitors who are on the hunt for a cheap bowl of shrimp and grits or a tilapia Local chefs have wrapped in a “Taco Tuesday” special. It’s no wonder your curated menus seafood gets cheaper by the dozen while fishing communities dwindle; oyster farms are struggling to source seed, and shifted their farm-raised fish rule the menu, and a staggering 90 percent sourcing so that of shrimp come from overseas. you can still Here in Charleston, however, the tide is turning. We boast a experience the best growing network of conscientious chefs and seafood businesses that are paving the way for you to be a conservationist while the Lowcountry you’re dining out. Splurging on date night and defending your passions don’t have to be mutually exclusive. Local chefs have has to offer, while menus and shifted their sourcing so that you can still giving a nod to the curated experience the best the Lowcountry has to offer, while giving a folks who have nod to the folks who have docked their boats across the harbor. docked their boats This is what conservation through food looks like. Good Catch, a program of the South Carolina Aquarium, across the harbor. cultivates this seafood community that operates at the intersection of marine resource conservation and economic empowerment for small seafood businesses who are the lifeblood of the Lowcountry’s seafood heritage. While you’re visiting, I encourage you to choose a restaurant that is part of the Good Catch family and ask for the (good) catch of the day. There’s a good chance it’s going to cost more than the antibiotic-dusted, farmraised shrimp getting dished up down the street (that comes with a carbon footprint bigger than a Caribbean cruise vacation). However, know that each dollar spent on local seafood helps to rebuild our fishing community, preserve our culture, and ultimately, protect what we love. Whether it’s your hobby or career that makes you a champion for wild places, your choice in what and where to eat will be part of your conservation efforts, too. Together we can make a significant impact that protects what we are all passionate about. The Lowcountry thanks you. Amy MacKown is the Good Catch coordinator at the South Carolina Aquarium.

MEET THE DOG WALKERS WHO WILL MAKE SURE YOUR PUP GETS DOWN THE AISLE ON YOUR BIG DAY BY SAMANTHA CONNORS

MALLORY COOPER (LEFT), OWNER OF CHARLESTON DOG WALKER, SAYS MANY CHARLESTON VENUES WILL ALLOW FUR BABIES TO BE PART OF WEDDING CEREMONIES Ruta Smith

Despite the criticism from older generations that millennials aren’t focused on owning property, a research study conducted by Harris Poll in 2017 found that 33 percent of millennials who have purchased homes did so because they wanted more room for their dog. Overall, having room for a dog figured in as a larger factor than getting married (25 percent) and expecting a child (19 percent). When a group of millennials who are not homeowners were asked about their reasons for wanting to someday purchase property, 42 percent also cited “room for a dog” as a top reason. Who ever said millennials were selfish? We may love our avocado toasts and mimosa carafes, but we also love our animals, and it shows. Mallory Cooper, the owner of Charleston Dog Walker, which offers dog walking, sitting, and wedding services, has noticed the trend. “I think it’s such a great option for a wedding ceremony because, for a lot of young couples, the first step of making a relationship more serious is getting a puppy together,” she explains. “Once they get engaged and start planning the wedding, the puppy is really part of their family and they want their dog there with them to celebrate.” Millennials are certainly hopping on board with having their dogs in their wedding ceremonies, and couples of all ages are starting to pick up on the trend. Charleston wedding planner Michael Winship says that about 50 percent of his couples want to include their dogs in their wedding in some capacity. “I think it has to do with the venues in Charleston,” he explains. “A lot of people want to get married here because of our outdoor spaces, and these venues that are allowing couples to bring their fur babies into the ceremony really help.” A dog owner himself, Winship has helped dozens of couples make their doggie wedding dreams come true since starting his company Charleston Wedding Planner 18 years ago, continued on page 18

any young couples consider their dogs to be like their children, and when it’s time to walk down the aisle together, more and more couples are choosing to include their furry friends in the big day. Though this trend isn’t new, it has gained a lot of staying power in the last five years — and it’s usually attributed to the way that millennials think about their pets.

though he thinks the trend has really picked up in the last five years. “People can go on Pinterest or Google now and they see all of these photos of dogs being part of the wedding, and they want that,” he says. “But, I don’t think it’s just a trend. I think we’re going to continue seeing this for a long time to come.” Winship enjoys working closely with couples that want their pets at the wedding because he feels as though it allows him a certain level of creativity. Another local dog walker, Jessica Taylor, is Winship’s go-to girl for all things dog care-related, and Taylor has recently begun getting into the dog wedding services business, too. “Your dog is really your best friend,” she says. “They’re always there even when no one else is, so it makes sense why so many people want their dogs in the ceremony or even just for pictures. You want those forever photos with your dog because your dog completes your home, so why not have it complete your wedding?” Cooper says her company has seen dozens of different ways couples have made their dogs an important part of the big day, from attending the photoshoot before the ceremony to actually being the ring bearer or the flower girl. “The most unique example I’ve seen is a few people have had their dog be the best man,” Cooper says, chuckling. “It’s the cutest thing ever. And, of course, they are always dressed up. Sometimes with a flower leash or a bow tie. One couple even

got a doggie tuxedo made for the wedding.” Aside from his wedding planning, Winship also officiates weddings for couples, and he’s started to use a new method of getting the dogs involved in the ceremonies. For couples who each had their own dog prior to their relationship, Winship will incorporate each into the vows, asking the bride or groom if they will take both their partner and their continued on page 20

partner’s dog to be their lawfully wedded spouse. “It’s not uncommon to do this for people who have children and are becoming blended families,” he explains. “It’s the same for the dogs, we’re helping to really make them a part of the family.” While seeing the dog at the wedding is a joyful addition to the day for both the couple and their guests, it’s not all fetch and games. There’s a lot of preparation that goes into planning for the dog’s role in the wedding to ensure that the pet itself is comfortable and that the ceremony runs smoothly. The first step for both Cooper and Taylor is to have an in-depth conversation with the couple to get a solid understanding of the dog’s behavior, so they know what to expect at the wedding. “I want to know everything about the dog,” says Taylor. “I don’t want to have to bother the bride or groom at any point that day, so I need to know things like

the dog’s temperament, whether they have any allergies or sensitivities, if they take medication, if there’s water near the venue, are they going to go nuts and try to jump in? I just want to be as prepared as possible.” Winship, Taylor, and Cooper all agree that couples need to understand that weddings can be exhausting and sometimes stressful for dogs, which is why they recommend really considering your dog’s personality before deciding to include them. Some dogs are well-suited to stay through the ceremony and even the reception while others are better off staying for just the ceremony or the photos before being taken home. Cooper’s company will work with couples to determine how they want the dog to be involved. Then, they will help care for the dog before the service and give the bridesmaid or groomsman some direction on how to handle the dog as they walk down the aisle. After the ceremony, Cooper or one of her employees will take the dog back home or stay with the dog during the cocktail hour,

allowing guests the chance to come say hello. “It’s a bit of a novelty for the guests,” she says. “They’ll get there and be like, ‘Oh my God, their dog is here!’ and then they usually end up saying something like, ‘Oh, but it makes so much sense. They love their dog so much, this is so them.’ And people love it.” If you’re planning your own wedding, and you want your dog to be a part of the big day too, better go ahead and have someone designated to care for the dog. Let your family have the day off—hire one of these experienced dog sitters to make your wedding day complete. “For so many people, their dogs are their children,” says Winship. “They have been with the couple since they’ve been together, and a lot of people bring their dogs into their relationships, so it’s a real priority to have them there.” JESSICA TAYLOR WANTS TO KNOW EVERYTHING ABOUT YOUR DOG BEFORE THE CEREMONY (JUST IN CASE)

In the past, the Columbia Museum of Art has hosted exhibitions dealing with rock, jazz, and classical music, focusing on the evolution of each genre, the artistic touchstones that caused them to grow, and the people who made the biggest impact on the music. But up until now, the museum had never touched on one of the youngest, and most popular, musical genres in the

TRIBE: A Celebration of South Carolina HipHop Culture. TRIBE examines the timeline of hip-hop music in our state, taking in four decades worth of history and mixing hip-hop music with the art that inspired and promoted it, including posters, graffiti art, photographs, videos, clothing, and more. The exhibition was created by Love, Peace & Hip Hop, an organization with the mission of engaging with communities through hip-hop culture to achieve meaningful impact in the fields of health, education, family, and the arts. Grants from the Knight Foundation Fund and the Central Carolina Community Foundation helped

Love, Peace & Hip Hop build the exhibit. In the past, Love, Peace & Hip Hop’s most visible endeavor was World Famous Hip-Hop Family Day, a free festival that has brought classic hip-hop acts like Kool Moe Dee, MC Lyte, Kid N’ Play, KRS-One, Big Daddy Kane, Slick Rick, and more to Columbia — the group announced this week that it will host Rakim on April 11. But last year, the Columbia Museum of Art reached out to Love, Peace & Hip Hop founder FatRat Da Czar and the organization’s director, Janet Scouten, with an idea. “The collaboration with the Columbia Museum of Art began last year when they continued on page 26

The Gaillard Center takes home the award in the organization category, recognized for its “outstanding achievement and contributions to the arts in South Carolina.” In a press release SCAC chairwoman Dee Crawford said, “By taking our arts community to new levels, they are elevating our state as well. With the Verner Award, we celebrate their achievements and thank them for enriching life and culture here in South Carolina.” The Gaillard Center’s education and community program has provided artsenhanced education programs to over 130 local schools, impacting more than 67,000 students in the past four years. The Charleston Symphony also calls the Gaillard Center home. The awards will be presented along with the Jean Laney Harris Folk Heritage awards at the 2020 South Carolina Arts Awards on Wed.

TRIBE continued from page 24 first reached out to Love, Peace & Hip Hop about bringing some of our festival programming to the museum,” Scouten says. The result was a show unlike anything the museum had done before. “We held a fantastic event called ‘The Get Down’ on the Friday before the 2019 World Famous Hip-Hop Family Day on the newly redesigned Boyd Plaza and inside the museum itself,” Scouten says. “We brought in b-boys and b-girls from Charleston and Charlotte to do some breakdancing, graffiti artists to do live painting demonstrations, and a DJ to spin old-school hip-hop. The place was packed, and people had an amazing time.” After “The Get Down” was a success, Love, Peace & Hip Hop and the museum began collaborating on something based

more directly on the hip-hop culture of South Carolina. “The concept of bringing the TRIBE project to the Columbia Museum of Art developed naturally from conversations we had with the museum about the rich and impactful history of South Carolina hiphop,” Scouten says. The multimedia exhibition that was the result of those discussions has actually been rolling out in phases since last November, when FatRat Da Czar released a double-CD called TRIBE through his record label, Czar Records. The album compiles 25 tracks featuring hip-hop artists around the state, including Big Redd, H3RO, MIDIMarc, Cole Connor, and Courtney J. Then in early January, a video was released for “Carolina,” one of the tracks from the album that features Piazo, Guttah Fam AG, and Mel 1K. Additional planned elements of the TRIBE

project include a documentary film featuring interviews with influential South Carolina hip-hop figures, as well as community dialogues and roundtables. “The process of curating this exhibition has spanned almost a full year,” Scouten says, “and has involved connecting generations of South Carolina hip-hop across the state in a way that has never been seen before.” The man largely responsible for curating the TRIBE project says he’s hoping not just to highlight South Carolina’s past and current contributions to the hip-hop world, but to inspire future artists as well. “I want generations to come to the exhibit and get educated, feel proud, and ultimately be inspired,” FatRat Da Czar says. “We need to not only celebrate the important contributions of our predecessors, but to also invite the bright future of South Carolina hip-hop to reunite with lost and sometimes forgotten members of their artistic family.”

boundaries of what the crowd will like. I mean, they would certainly fit in a lot of more contemporary galleries, but they’re pretty different from what I saw at SEWE last year. I have an underwater scene of jellyfish floating in front of sunken cars, for example, but it takes a minute to figure out what they’re floating in front of. It’s a very subtle message about dumping stuff in the water, but at the same time, it’s a beautiful painting so it works on these two levels.” Larry has spent much of his life educating others on the creative process and has taught creative workshops for 30 years. He also worked as an illustrator for much of his professional career, primarily dealing with graphic design and advertising.

Both his study of the creative process and his work as an illustrator, which is a very concept-driven art form, has led him to produce the narrative-based pieces you see today. “I didn’t want to just paint stuff. I didn’t want to just paint animals in the forest because everybody does that, so I came up with this other angle that people really respond to,” he says. “One of the things I’ve always been a proponent of is developing intent in your work and being very specific about the parameters of what you’re doing. Even if you’re just painting a marsh, it’s more than just getting the colors and the edges and the shapes right. You need to have an idea behind it.” Moore’s work will be on display in SEWE’s fine art gallery, located in the Charleston Place Ballroom.

Art meets science in a new theatrical experience at Cannon Street Arts Center. That Which We Call a Rose uses actors, robots, and puppets to explore topics such as the solar system, human experience, and climate change. With funding from the NASA S.C. Space Grant Consortium, South Carolina Arts Commission, and the College of Charleston School of the Arts, the performance brings an artistic approach to real science and research presented in the show. “As an interdisciplinary artist, I am especially thrilled that this work has funding from state and national funds in the arts and the sciences. To me, that is the heart of what Provided STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) means,” says Vivian ARTS SUPPORT SCIENCE LEARNING IN THESE Appler, the show’s director.

CHARLESTON CITY PAPER 02.12.2020

BY MARY SCOTT HARDAWAY

During my second year of college, I went on my first adult date — you know, the kind where you dress up and sip booze that isn’t jungle juice or Natty Light. It was Valentine’s Day and we drank too much red wine before dinner and I can’t remember what I ordered or what we talked about. I can tell you now, in hindsight and with a few more first dates under my belt, I would’ve much rather dined alone. Though Orson Welles would beg to differ, I say — we’re never really alone. We have books and podcasts and Instagram and long reads about the state of the world and whether stationary bikes are inherently sinister, sentient beings. And then there are the humans we encounter every day, from buoyant co-workers to stone-faced cashiers. Though the best — and undoubtedly most entertaining — humans, I’ve found, reside in neighborhood bars and restaurants. I don’t remember what I ate that ill-fated first date, but I do remember that my server tactfully ignored my wine-stained dress. This year, yearning to be alone together with fellow solitude seekers, I decided to take myself on a few dates in advance of V-Day, sitting at the bar of three very different establishments: Delaney Oyster House, Tattooed

Moose, and Spanglish Cocina + Bar. Kevin King, Delaney’s general manager, leads the beverage program at the 19th century single house; one of his most intriguing offerings is a mini bottle and caviar service. The mini bottles are a “playful nod,” to the state’s history of requiring bars to only stock mini bottles, from the dark ages of 1973-2005. The 1.7-ounce bottle arrives chilled, propped up in a tiny bucket of ice. I let King choose which caviar to pair with the hard liquor. On my early evening date I sample 1 ounce of Tennessee Paddlefish and 80-proof Hangar One vodka. “American with American,” King notes. Pro tip: Don’t treat yourself to this fine pairing on an empty stomach. It may work wonders for the Russians, but sipping straight vodka feels like ... sipping straight vodka. Still, the fluffy blini and salty/buttery fish eggs are a delight. Meant for two, I can say with confidence that the caviar may be consumed, happily, by one. My next date was more of a work meeting. Believe it or not, Tattooed Moose Johns Island is a great place to knock out some emails — the long wooden bar and dim lighting are the pefect backdrop for beer-fueled office hours settled in at a cor-

Nosh, the area’s newest coffee spot and smoothie bar, is now open. The cafe is appropriately located in the same building as chic fitness studio HYLO. The slick La Marzocco espresso machine and marble bar beckon — order your adaptogenic latte here. The space is beautiful and big. There’s ample room for morning meetings over espresso and afternoon lingering over avocado toast. A mural by local artist Samantha Rueter adorns the entire back wall and the bathroom doors are etched with the figure of a nude man to the left, a nude woman on the right. On their website, Nosh owners Madison and Ben Dollar write that, “every menu item at Nosh will include only organic components that are meant to nourish and heal your body.” For those hankering for something that really nourishes the soul there are EVO Bakery items and a selection of beer and wine. Of course, the hygge haven has a selection of colorful smoothie bowls and nondairy, nut-free, and gluten free options. Nosh is open 6 a.m.-8 p.m. Mon.-Fri. and 8 a.m.-4 p.m Sat. and Sun. —Mary Scott Hardaway

ner stool with a wireless hotspot. On these kinds of dates, I like to spend a little over an hour sipping a couple of beers before ordering a burger to-go. My final night out was spent on a Wednesday evening at Spanglish Cocina + Bar. The hot pink bar and charming staff welcomed me as I hopped into the coveted corner seat. The restaurant, run by Lynda and Tomas Prado, recently secured their liquor license; they’d operated their first months with a BYOB policy. While lugging your favorite six-pack around is perhaps more economical, thank god they can now serve up their own rum-forward libations. I sipped my daiquiri, called my mother, and lingered over the Cuban-inspired menu. The fish of the day was perfectly seared with a creamy lime sauce and pickled jalapenos, served with a side of aromatic arroz blanco. “See you next week!” a couple of regulars cheerily called back to Tomas in the kitchen. I ordered a cafecito, thought about it, then ordered empanadas to go. I couldn’t wait — I grabbed one of the piping hot, doughy pockets, clumsily knocking the lid off the plastic container of aioli. I bite into a crisp corner, eating my empanada in the dark parking lot, blisfully alone.

Home Team BBQ’s third annual, free to attend Rock the Block takes place Sat. Feb. 22 at their downtown location starting at 11 a.m. As always, the yearly shindig benefits the fight against pediatric brain cancer. Festival-goers can expect a variety of eats from Home Team as well as acclaimed pitmasters Jonathan and Justin Fox of Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q (Atlanta, Ga.), chef Eddie Hernandez and Mike Klank of Taqueria del Sol (Atlanta, Ga.), Brandon Rushing from Ella and Ollie’s (Edisto Island), Shuai and Corrie Wang of Jackrabbit Filly, Jeremiah Bacon of The Macintosh and Oak Steakhouse, and Matt Niessner of Halls Chophouse. Drinks will be available for purchase at bar stations on the street, as well as in the restaurant. If you want to boost your block party experience, a limited number of VIP tickets are available for $125 per person. VIP holders have access to the lounge with AYCE food offerings from Jason Stanhope of FIG, David Bancroft of Acre and Bow and Arrow (Auburn, Ala.), Shannon Yelmini of Kiawah Island Golf Resort, and goat. sheep. cow. Jayce McConnell of Edmund’s Oast shakes up specialty cocktails. The block party event serves as the premier fundraiser for Home Team’s support of Hogs for the Cause. Last year, HT raised $56,000 for the cause, with a huge portion of that coming directly from last year’s Rock the Block. All the more reason to spend your Saturday on Williman Street. —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.

When Greens are Gold On the farm with Joseph Fields and Workmen’s Cafe BY ENID BRENIZE

CHARLESTON CITY PAPER 02.12.2020

Less than 24 hours had passed since J.Lo took to the pole at halftime, but the game couldn’t have been further from our minds. Angie Bellinger, owner and chef of landmark comfort food restaurant Workmen’s Cafe, and I are the only two visitors on a gorgeous Monday afternoon. It’s the one day every week the Joseph Fields Farm market is closed to visitors, and there’s nothing and no one blocking our view of endless rows of early-ripening strawberries, spinach, and mustard greens. Not even mosquitos. Down the winding driveway, past rusted trucks and a ceiling-high stack of coolers in the back shed, we hear one adamant rooster making his presence known. But the Super Bowl is the first thing on the eponymous Joseph Fields’ tongue when we find him leaning near the chicken and duck coop, searching his phone for YouTube. After he cheekily introduces himself as Frank, Fields recounts the story of how he got a spot in the Michelob Ultra Pure Gold’s “6 for 6-Pack” commercial during Super Bowl LIV. There he is, at the 50 second mark, standing in a grain field in Southern California among rows of barley that Fields explains were shipped in from North Dakota and glued to boards to give the illusion of amber waves of grain. On Fields’ own farm, a 50-plus acre plot just across River Road from the brick house where he grew up, there are plenty of genuine fields, sprouting spring onions, dinosaur kale, mustard greens, cabbages, turnips, rutabagas, and peas planted by a visiting school group. Leaving the rooster crows behind,

FIELDS AND HIS FEATHERED FRIENDS

Fields tours us through rows of strawberries quickly turning from frosty white to deep red thanks to oddly warm weather. “Just a dollar a pop,” Fields teases, urging us to pick and test a ripe berry. “My God, I’m going to have to come out here more often,” says Bellinger. Among the strawberry rows, a green weed has popped through and Fields quickly picks it by the roots, but instead of discarding it, he brings it over to show us the little basilshaped leaves growing to a sharp point. They make a perfectly fresh palate cleanser after the sweet berries. “You call it a weed,” he says, chewing, “but you go to a Caribbean restaurant and you can take this little green and put it in a salad, cook it, and call it callaloo. You call it a weed because we don’t eat it.” “I can see myself coming up here once a week,” Bellinger says again. A breeze kicks up fresh air scented with dirt and grass and something sweet and it’s hard to disagree. This weekend, Bellinger and Fields will take to the Marion Square stage together at the Southeastern Wildlife Exposition, explaining the story behind Bellinger’s greens, a staple dish made from Fields’ collards, thick with smoky flavor and topped with crumbled bacon. “The green is darker, more flavorful, more tender,” Bellinger muses. “I mean, the aroma coming off of it when I stir fry it, oh man!” That’s saying something coming from a chef and a Southern woman, born and raised just a mile or two away, who absolutely abhors collards. “I hate collards with a passion,” she laughs. “My customers love collards, but I hate them. My mom served it to us so much that I got tired of it.” Bellinger’s mother was the impetus and inspiration for Workmen’s Cafe, calling her daughter back from Ohio after graduate school to open the restaurant and dish up pork chops, mac and cheese, and those famous greens just the way she was taught. “Believe it or not, my dad taught my mom to cook,” says Bellinger. “They met when she was 14, right here.” She points down River Road. “My dad was born and raised around here. My uncle had a store — we passed it on the way here — that’s closed now, and he also ran the bus service. Back then the blacks and the whites were not allowed to be on the same bus, so my dad’s uncle, George Bellinger, ran the bus line transporting the black folks to and from town. My mom was the only girl and had six brothers, and all she wanted to do was be

out in the field with her brothers, so she didn’t know how to cook until my dad taught her.” At age 14, Bellinger, the only child left at home, went to her mother and told her she wanted to learn how to cook. “She said, ‘Okay. When you’re in that kitchen I need you to be in that kitchen and you need to do everything I tell you,’” Bellinger remembers. “Yes ma’am.” “When I went off to college I was 27, and within the first week I called my mom and when she answered the phone I said, ‘Thank you.’ She asked what for, and I said, ‘for teaching me how to cook.’” If there’s one word for the work these two Charleston natives do daily, it’s family. “Turn around,” Fields tells us, still standing between rows of berries. “That’s where I grew up, that house over there.” He’s pointing to a one-story brick home across the two-lane road, next to a little restaurant with a marquee reading Fields Family Restaurant in black and red letters. “That spot was a juke joint. You know what that is?” “A neighborhood night club,” Bellinger pipes in. “Where people go to unwind on Friday and Saturday night. We had about three or four on Grimball Road back in the ‘70s.” Bellinger’s cousin is married to Fields’ brother, one of six siblings who lives out here on the farmland and helps with the restaurant, flea market, farm store, and the grandchildren’s dogs, one of which is barking and pulling at his rope back behind the hen coop. “I told you we was family,” Bellinger laughs. She’s been running her café solo for years, and all that standing is starting to take its toll, on her knees and her energy. “It’d been just me for a long time ... No children, never been married! I figured if it didn’t happen by the time I was 30, I was not going to shed a tear,” she laughs. Planning on venturing into dinner this summer, Bellinger will be doubling the Cafe’s

working hours and expanding the menu. “I was trying to do brisket but I couldn’t get it right. I have two local chefs helping me with the menu ... one, he asked me if I’ve ever made a chuck roast. I said, ‘Yeah that was our Sunday dinner,’ and he said, ‘So, if you know how to make a chuck roast, why you fooling around with a brisket? You’re losing the concept of Workmen’s Cafe if you do a brisket. You cook the food that you grew up with.’” Workmen’s Cafe is a meat-and-three type of place for the working men (and women, but mostly meat-loving men, says Bellinger) of James Island. Think: Half-inch-thick pork chops that extend over the edge of a plate next to lima beans and bacon-topped greens from Fields’ farm. “By the time I do all of that [opening for dinner], I’ll be out of the cafe too,” Bellinger says, now padding through fields of mustard greens in her slide-on flats, nylons, and Workmen’s chef’s coat. “I’m going to hire some people to run it for me, and sell my ownership. After 20 years and just me for so long ... Whoever I get is going to have to work under me for three months minimum. I’m going to write all the recipes and they have to do it just like me. I’m OK with parting with some of my secrets, as long as they do it just like I tell them to.” By now we’ve reached the far end of the field, where Fields picks spears of fresh spring onions, peeling away the paperthin pod on top to reveal tiny white floral shoots that he says are perfect on a spring salad. Bellinger is talking of taking photography back up and going on road trips after retiring from the kitchen. Not far away a rooster is still taunting the tied-up puppy, and downtown Charleston seems much further than 15 miles away. Bellinger laughs, seemingly without a care in the world. “Oh Lordy, I haven’t been in the fields since I was a kid!”

McCrady’s Restaurant Settle in for an evening of that ingredient driven cuisine — choose from one of six nightly seatings and receive in return a highly-choreographed 15-course meal with impeccable wine pairings. The plates are both artful and playful, balancing rich, intense flavors with delicate nuances — a slab of 65-day aged ribeye dusted with black truffle, a single lightlypoached shrimp served atop an orb of “Charleston ice cream” (Carolina Gold rice), a tender sea scallop nestled between an earthy swirl of brown butter and ethereal, sea-like foam. The setting and service strike an equally delicate balance between high-end luxury and relaxing informality — an impressive step forward for a long-time Charleston dining institution. —Robert Moss Lunch, Dinner (Daily), Weekend Brunch.

Free Will Astrology ARIES (March 21-April 19): Now that she’s in her late forties, Aries comedian and actress Tig Notaro is wiser about love. Her increased capacity for romantic happiness has developed in part because she’s been willing to change her attitudes. She says, “Instead of being someone who expects people to have all the strengths I think I need them to have, I resolved to try to become someone who focuses on the strengths they do have.” In accordance with this Valentine’s season’s astrological omens, Aries, I invite you to meditate on how you might cultivate more of that aptitude yourself. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Taurus artist Joan Miró loved to daub colored paint on canvases. He said he approached his work in the same way he made love: “a total embrace, without caution, prudence thrown to the winds, nothing held back.” In accordance with astrological omens, I invite you to invoke a similar attitude with all the important things you do in the coming weeks. Summon the ardor and artistry of a creative lover for all-purpose use. Happy Valentine Daze, Taurus! GEMINI (May 21-June 20): In 1910, Gemini businessman Irving Seery was 20 years old. One evening he traveled to the Metropolitan Opera in New York City to see an opera starring the gorgeous and electrifying soprano singer Maria Jeritza. He fell in love instantly. For the next thirty-eight years he remained a bachelor as he nursed his desire to marry her. His devotion finally paid off. Jeritza married Seery in 1948. Dear Gemini, in 2020, I think you will be capable of a heroic feat of love that resembles Seery’s. Which of your yearnings might evoke such intensely passionate dedication? Happy Valentine Daze! CANCER (June 21-July 22): I’ve been married twice, both times to the same woman. Our first time around, we were less than perfectly wise in the arts of relationship. After our divorce and during the few years we weren’t together, we each ripened into more graceful versions of ourselves; we developed greater intimacy skills. Our second marriage has been far more successful. Is there a comparable possibility in your life, Cancerian? A chance to enhance your ability to build satisfying togetherness? An opening to learn practical lessons from past romantic mistakes? Now is a favorable time to capitalize. Happy Valentine Daze! LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): In 1911, the famous Russian poet Anna Akhmatova and the famous Italian painter Amedeo Modigliani were in love with each other. Both were quite poor, though. They didn’t have much to spend on luxuries. In her memoir, Akhmatova recalled the time they went on a date in the rain at the Luxembourg Gardens in Paris. Barely protected under a rickety umbrella, they amused each other by reciting the verse of Paul Verlaine, a poet they both loved. Isn’t that romantic? In the coming weeks, I recommend you experiment with comparable approaches to cultivating love. Get back to raw basics. Happy Valentine Daze! VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): [Warning: Poetry alert! If you prefer your horoscopes to be exclusively composed of practical, hyper-rational advice, stop reading now!] Happy Valentine Daze, Virgo! I hope there’s someone in your life to whom you can give a note like the one I’ll offer at the end of this oracle. If there’s not, I trust you will locate that person in the next six months. Feel free to alter the note as you see fit. Here it is. “When you and I are together, it’s as if we have been reborn into luckier lives; as if we can breathe deeper breaths that fill our bodies with richer sunlight; as if we see all of the world’s beauty that alone we were blind to; as if the secrets of our souls’ codes are no longer secret.” LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): In the course of your life, how many people and animals have truly loved you? Three? Seven? More? I invite you to try this Valentine experiment: Write down their names on a piece of paper. Spend a few minutes visualizing the specific qualities in you that they cherished, and how they expressed their love, and how you felt as you received their caring attention. Then send out a beam of gratitude to each of them. Honor them with sublime appreciation for having treasured your

unique beauty. Amazingly enough, Libra, doing this exercise will magnetize you to further outpourings of love in the coming weeks. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): [Warning: Poetry alert! If you prefer your horoscopes to be exclusively composed of practical, hyper-rational advice, stop reading now!] Happy Valentine Daze, Scorpio! I invite you to copy the following passage and offer it to a person who is receptive to deepening their connection with you. “Your healing eyes bless the winter jasmine flowers that the breeze blew into the misty creek. Your welcoming prayers celebrate the rhythmic light of the mud-loving cypress trees. Your fresh dreams replenish the eternal salt that nourishes our beloved song of songs. With your melodic breath, you pour all these not-yet-remembered joys into my body.” (This lyrical message is a blend of my words with those of Scorpio poet Odysseus Elytis.) SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): The poet Virgil, a renowned author in ancient Rome, wrote three epic poems that are still in print today. His second was a masterpiece called the Georgics. It took him seven years to write, even though it was only 2,740 lines long. So on average he wrote a little over one line per day. I hope you’ll use him as inspiration as you toil over your own labors of love in the coming weeks and months. There’ll be no need to rush. In fact, the final outcomes will be better if you do them slowly. Be especially diligent and deliberate in all matters involving intimacy and collaboration and togetherness. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): [Warning: Poetry alert! If you prefer your horoscopes to be exclusively composed of practical, hyper-rational advice, stop reading now!] Happy Valentine Daze, Capricorn! I invite you to copy the following passage and offer it to a person who is ready to explore a more deeply lyrical connection with you. “I yearn to earn the right to your whispered laugh, your confident caress, your inscrutable dance. Amused and curious, I wander where moon meets dawn, inhaling the sweet mist in quest of your questions. I study the joy that my imagination of you has awakened. All the maps are useless, and I like them that way. I’m guided by my nervous excitement to know you deeper. Onward toward the everfresh truth of your mysterious rhythms!” AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Aquarian author Derek Walcott had a perspective on love that I suspect might come in handy for you during this Valentine season. “Break a vase,” he wrote, “and the love that reassembles the fragments is stronger than that love which took its symmetry for granted when it was whole.” I urge you to meditate on how you could apply his counsel to your own love story, Aquarius. How might you remake your closest alliances into even better and brighter versions of themselves? PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Piscean poet Saul Williams wrote a meditation I hope you’ll consider experimenting with this Valentine season. It involves transforming mere kisses into SUBLIME KISSES. If you choose to be inspired by his thoughts, you’ll explore new sensations and meanings available through the act of joining your mouth to another’s. Ready? Here’s Saul: “Have you ever lost yourself in a kiss? I mean pure psychedelic inebriation. Not just lustful petting but transcendental metamorphosis, when you became aware that the greatness of this other being is breathing into you. Licking your mouth, like sealing a thousand fleshy envelopes filled with the essence of your passionate being, and then opened by the same mouth and delivered back to you, over and over again — the first kiss of the rest of your life.” Homework: Want to get married to yourself?

pulse STARRING MH RELIVES HIS 20s ON BLACK PINK AND RED

DANNY MARTIN (LEFT) USED AN ALL-STAR BAND FOR VISION OF 2, INCLUDING DJ LAZERCAT (RIGHT), NIC JENKINS, AND GRACE JOYNER

Seeing Double 2 Slices goes for “heartbreak on the dancefloor” on Vision of 2 BY ALEX PEEPLES 2 Slices w/ Bero Bero, Canopy Hands Sat. Feb. 15 9 p.m. $10 The Royal American

In September 2017, 2 Slices burst onto Charleston’s music scene with their debut album Best Believe. In no time, they were something of a star in the city’s independent music community thanks to their polished, club-ready electronic pop sound, and frontman/songwriter Danny Martin’s emphatic live performances. It was like they had been here for years. But, after a successful run of shows and praise from around the city and the state, 2 Slices seemingly vanished from the local music circuit almost as quickly as they had arrived. Now, almost two and a half years after the release of Best Believe, 2 Slices are back with Vision of 2, a full-length album available now for stream and download. Believe it or not, the whole time 2 Slices is out of Charleston’s public eye, they were writing and building this new album. The songwriting process for Vision of 2 began in August 2018, according to Martin, while the album’s recording and production process occurred throughout 2019. “We stopped playing shows for a while so that I could write,” Martin says, “then in the studio it was almost like layering a cake. Some days we would run through all of the songs and

then run through them again.” Martin cites mainstream pop music, specifically artists like Frank Ocean, Madonna, and Robyn, as influences for the album and 2 Slices in general. While it may not sonically emulate the slow-burn dreamscape of Frank Ocean, the thematic elements and creative thought process behind Vision of 2 has a clear parallel to his albums. “This is very much a heartbreak record,” says Martin. “I was trying to take my songwriting more seriously and focus more on lyrics and vocal melodies. My last record was more playful. We had songs like ‘Big Girl’ and ‘Fuck the Haters,’ songs about having a good time. [Vision of 2] was more lyrics about what I’m going through. I want to go for heartbreak on the dancefloor. I wanted to make an epic club album.” After all, what could be better for a nearValentine’s Day release? It’s a holiday of love and celebration while also being filled with heartbreak and regret. “I want people to enjoy this and relate it to their own lives and their own personal heartbreak and how they can bring it into how they’re growing as people. I consciously wrote it in the first-person so that people can sort of put themselves into it,” Martin says. “I like it when music allows people to feel like it’s about them. And it was therapeutic for me, personally. Music will do that. I was very isolated for this record. It’s the most personal album I’ve ever written

and I had a clear idea of what I wanted to write about and get out.” The album was produced by Wolfgang Zimmerman at Rialto Row Studios and boasts an all-star band of local musicians including Brett Nash of Secret Guest on bass, Nic Jenkins of Infinitikiss on drums, and solo artist Grace Joyner on keys. As always, DJ Lazercat is a major player in the band, especially at live performances. “I really appreciate the energy that everyone gave to have this thing keep going. It makes me write more knowing that people are behind it and support it,” Martin says. But even with that phenomenal backing band and production assistance, Vision of 2 is very clearly Martin’s album. It’s brave for an artist who prides himself on making dancefloor pop music to make an album that stays true to his roots while also bearing an open wound for the listener to see and hear. For fans of 2 Slices, everything they’ve come to love is all here, but Martin has a little more to say directly to you this time. Music that combines the energy of a club with the dolor of heartbreak is not necessarily a new concept, but Danny Martin has put his own twist on it. While you’re dancing to this album at a 2 Slices show, just know that it’s an album born of sadness, but it wasn’t all gloom that created these songs. In Martin’s own words, “I’m going through these times now but things will soon get better.”

ROWAN OAK BREAKS THROUGH A “FALSEWALL” WITH A PUNCHY NEW SINGLE

Rowan Oak dropped their newest single, “Falsewall,” on Jan. 31. The song moves away from the bluesy, acoustic singer-songwriter sound of their last album For Those Who Hunger, taking on more of an indie rock/punk vibe. The track begins with a strong drum line followed by explosive electric guitar, introducing this new, harder sound from the getgo. While some previous tracks from Rowan Oak give a more indie rock performance, this one goes further than that, evoking a punk vibe while still keeping the indie essence, comparable to the rockier songs from a group like Band of Horses. Rowan Oak’s lyricism is consistent, however, sticking to the emotional and introspective words recognizable from their previous work. Rowan Oak is currently working on an album, set to release this summer. It’ll be interesting to see if the rest of the album will take on the acoustic singer-songwriter tone, or if they will continue on with this louder sound. ­— EK

The tracks on the EP vary in sound, with some evoking upbeat punk similar to the Ramones while others take on a slower ’70s classic rock vibe. Throughout, Starring MH’s lyrical style creates an amusing and endearing take on modern aspects of young love while stumbling through early adulthood. Written while songwriter Matt Hanley was living in Charleston, tracks like “I Dig Marie,” “Black Pink and Red,” and “I Still Go On” are filled with memories of his time here. Hanley explains that the tracks on this EP were originally written for a musical about — you guessed it — the life and times of a 20-something romantic living in Charleston and learning about life. However, he tabled the project due to a lack of musical experience. It is no surprise that Hanley returned to this project in 2020 once he gained that musical knowledge because, as he puts it, “my time in Charleston made a big impact on how I see the world. I learned the value of variety,” which he defines as “getting out and seeing and hearing different things.” Now in New York, Starring MH is a rock ’n’ roll experiment working on a concept album for his musical Bedroom Guys, which Black Pink and Red was born out of. This EP was recorded with the Mozart Street Band and features Aleksi Champagne on the violin. —Eliana Katz

BRYANT WILL RELEASE TWO ALBUMS THIS YEAR: TOO SERIOUS FOR TELEVISION, OUT FEB. 14, AND TO LIVE AND DIE IN CHARLESTON

CHARLESTONPOURHOUSE.COM 1977 MAYBANK HWY • JAMES ISLAND

Releasing two albums in one year is something you’d expect from Jaee Bryant. In 2017 and 2018, the rapper/producer released three albums and two singles, garnering a premiere with hip-hop publication Mass Appeal before many in his hometown even knew his music. But, as the old adage says: easy come, easy go. Despite the quick success in music, Bryant took the upward momentum he built and shifted his focus to his clothing line, Never Say Ruin, while largely keeping quiet about new tunes in 2019. “I was working on music, but not releasing music because I wasn’t confident in my music,” Bryant says. “Right now, I’m confident. Like, ‘OK, we’ve got something that I like.’ ” His new assurance is bolstered by the release of his latest album, Too Serious for Television, and the announcement that another LP, To Live and Die in Charleston, will be released before 2020 is done. Too Serious for Television, dropping on Valentine’s Day, attempts to validate the rapper’s self-esteem and it gives a glimpse into the self-discovery he experienced during his year off from music. Bryant dubs the album’s sonic style G-Jazz; the beats have an easy cool, relying on relaxed instrumental samples. Lyrically, the rapper provides a series of hip-hop short stories, writing notes and everyday life descriptions just as often as he throws out fully formed ideas. At a cursory glance, it’s similar to 2018’s Evil Lurks, but unlike

previous releases, Bryant forces himself to be a more malleable performer. Bryant’s usual head-nodding rap style is present over the rainy day beats of tracks like “Televised” and “ROBOT CHICKEN.” The rapper says what he needs to, rarely belaboring a track past the three-minute mark, but what’s so different about Too Serious for Television is how much fun Bryant sounds like he’s having. “This album is more about me bringing the real,” Bryant says, contrasting it to reality television. “I just wanted to express myself not in a fake way — I wanted to give you the real.” The rapper and clothing-line owner directly addresses his change in attitude on the spoken R&B jam “Prototype 2.0,” one of the album’s most surprising and entertaining tracks. “Back in 2018, baby, I was going through a lot/ but when I met you, shit changed a lot,” he says over the song’s smooth ’70s soul track. “I was from depression, anxiety/ now it’s 2020 and I’m realizing that I’m fucking happy/ because you’re still on my mind, baby.” Bryant’s reincarnation is most apparent on formula-breakers like “Prototype 2.0,” the rap-soul outro of “Playa Playa,” and some electro-funk breaks on “Yahshua’s Groove” and “SILKK’S GROOVE.” None of that’s to say that Bryant has forsaken his roots — the guy can still use his words to slash through a beat when he wants to. On “Come Up Plan,” the rapper drops braggadocious verses, shifting his flow in as

many ways as he can in the scant two-minute runtime. “TERRIFIED,” an outlier for the LP, is a paranoid sing-rap track where Bryant expresses fear of jail, fear of people that might hurt him, and fear over life. Too Serious for Television is overall a more positive album than The TrifectAAA or Evil Lurks, thanks in large part to Bryant’s personal development. “The 2020 Jaee Bryant [is] more dedicated to myself. I’m going to worry about others, but I have to focus on myself and focus on my health and focus on what’s right for me,” he says. “2020 Jaee Bryant is about living life and enjoying the success.” “Game is to be Sold, Not to be Sold$” embodies Bryant’s latest ethos, aspirations, and his newfound self-worth. “Born and raised with Charleston/ gotta make my city scream/ the world is full of pimps and players, like myself/ never sold my soul to anyone because I know my wealth,” he raps in the first verse. There’s a sense of triumph in Too Serious for Television that Bryant’s long-time listeners are likely to sense. The happiness he’s worked for is discernable. Even when the production sounds downtrodden or he’s rapping about daily anxiety, there’s a dominating feeling that Bryant knows he’ll succeed and escape whatever hardship he’s facing. “This album was very therapeutic for me, very therapeutic,” he says, “and I’m just happy for it.” That feeling is hard to hide and easy to be influenced by.

INSTRUMENTAL HIP-HOP | Blockhead

Fri. Feb. 14 8 p.m. $10 Elliotborough Mini Bar

NYC producer Blockhead is most often referred to as an “instrumental hip-hop” producer, but as with most genres, that description doesn’t quite fit. Blockhead occupies a space somewhere between electronic dance music, ambient soundscapes, and hip-hop beats, mixing them with little or no regard for classification. On his new album, Bubble Bath, Blockhead immerses the listener in sound, practically begging people to throw on a good pair of headphones and dive in head-first. If you’re a fan of groups like Thievery Corporation or the Orb, you’ll find traces of both in Blockhead’s music; he takes grooves subtle and explicit and layers all manner of sounds over them, mixing together icy keyboards, burbling auxiliary percussion, jagged, angular vocal samples, and all manner of additional weirdness, creating soundtracks to films that only exist in his mind. His sound has evolved over 10 albums into something that is easier to experience than it is to describe, but imagine if Kool Keith, the Chemical Brothers, and maybe Daft Punk in a mellow mood all got together and started trying their absolute best to outdo one another. You might get something like Bubble Bath, a deceptively soothing release that has a surreal layer of menace underneath the shimmering surface. Yes, there are certainly traces of hip-hop here; the man knows good beats when he hears them. And yes, this is instrumental music, in that there is no dedicated lead vocalist. But “instrumental hip-hop” doesn’t come close to describing Blockhead’s kaleidoscopic musical range. —Vincent Harris SUNDAY

“Being open about possibilities is crucial.” That’s what Charlestonbased musician and Ohm Radio program director James Frolio says about how he has grown so much so fast. In recent years, he has learned that “there’s no one right way to do something, and the work can evolve past your own expectations, into something very beautiful.” Lately, he’s been creating some pretty powerful music under the moniker Big Yen, which is something of a catch-all name. “Big Yen has been a lot of things,” he explains. “It’s been a rocking four-piece band, and at times guest emcees have hopped in, and horn players have brought some dance elements.” With that said, Big Yen’s upcoming record release party will be “an intimate solo performance.” That is fitting, given the personal nature of these particular tunes and their importance to Frolio. “These recent songs are about unique and inspiring souls I’ve met. People are such a trip for me, and everyone teaches you a lesson.” Frolio adds, “This EP actually starts with the first song I ever wrote and ends with one of the most recent.” He claims to be in a really happy place right now, overall, and it shows. According to Frolio, the Feb. 14 concert will be extra-special — he’ll be working from a big repertoire of originals and covers and utilizing both acoustic and electric guitars. “To be honest, it’s going to be songs that made a big impact for me in my life and it’s also going to be personal. I like artists that share about themselves when they play. After all, music is a form of storytelling, right?” —Kevin Wilson FRIDAY

INDIE ROCK | Pierce Alexander Florida-based psych-rock group House of I will pull into the Tin Roof with indie rock singer-songwriters Pierce Alexander and John Brewster. House of I is an energetic, guitar-driven group that draws from bands like Portishead, Modest Mouse, and everything from “physics to marine biology.” They bring a tireless commitment to both their live sets and their psychedelic studio recordings which thrive on a sense of “positive mindfulness,” heard on their 2018 EP Alienation. Local indie rocker Pierce Alexander has already had his plate full with live shows in 2020, performed at the Royal American with local favorites like the Mobros and Jump Castle Riot. This show comes at a particularly exciting time for Hilton Head’s John Brewster, who will be releasing the first true single of his musical career on Valentine’s Day, just three days before he takes the Tin Roof stage. At this point, Brewster’s catalog has been limited to live acoustic performances. Fans of Alexander’s pensive, personal brand of alternative rock are sure to like what they hear from Brewster during Monday’s show. —Alex Peeples MONDAY

ROCK | Loudness War Loudness War, a four-piece rock band from Baton Rouge, La., has something in common with many music fans — they love the Beatles. “We started playing music together in high school and our first show was as an instrumental Beatles cover band,” the group says. “We bonded over a mutual adoration of the Beatles, and I still think that’s a pretty strong foundation for a lot of what we write.” Though the Beatles kick-started Loudness War, the band never stopped searching for their own sound. “I think around the end of high school we started getting into garage rock, punk, stoner rock,” Loudness War says. “Something about the music was so visceral and exciting, and it seemed so achievable.” Their musical timeline began with the Beatles, dabbled in garage rock, then found footing in a unique, grungy, fuzz rock that demands to be heard. Their new album, Mystifier Deluxe, ranges from swayable psychedelia to unignorable, heavy rock. Convention has been tossed out and replaced with improvisation and roughed out edges, giving birth to a new era of Loudness War. There’s a lot in store for the group, including a new album this year that the band says is “the most off the rails we’ve ever gone.” Live shows are much like the recording studio for Loudness War — loud and high energy, with nothing traditional in sight. —Abrie Richison THURSDAY
