Follypalooza 2010 My moon shines the brightest during the Halloween season. I was born on Oct. 29 and always made a note to celebrate Halloween and my birthday to the fullest. Which brings me to Skinful Halloween. Without question, it is one of the best parties I’ve ever been to. It’s wild, funny, crazy and exciting. My first Skinful was two years ago and I’ll never forget it. It seemed like a thousand people were partying with me. I know friends who were planning their outfits months in advance, and it showed. If you want to take a walk on the wild side of Charleston, then join me for this year’s Skinful on Saturday. And bring birthday gifts. I’m kidding.

Makers of music, art share much play notes in a sequence sensible to them. Artists pattern their images in the way they want to speak to you.

Musicians


belong to private and public collections internationally. Doyle and I go back to the 1960s-era Market Street nightclub Myskyns, a bohemian refuge that featured his art and bands from around the country. Contemporary artist John Duckworth, who has a successful work-in-progress project with jazz drummer Quentin Baxter called “Art Moves Jazz,” uses digital photography in his craft. He bends shades of light captured along the South Carolina coast like Baxter plays the ebbs and flows of rhythms. Nathan Durfee, a self-described grown-up doodler, practices painting on the arc between the abstract and the real. For him, process supersedes content. The creative journey is more important than the destination. Just like a jazz musician. Jazz is a verb, not a noun. It’s an energy field. You never know where the spark of inspiration will come from for jazz-and-art synergy. For instance, at the Charleston Jazz Orchestra’s Latin Night a few weeks ago,

Jonathan Green’s “Quentin and Kevin” can be seen at Gallery Chuma.

a young protege of Green’s became moved to paint what he heard. Reynier Llanes, a Cuban, was smitten by the music that night of Cuban-American pianist Fernando Rivas, the featured performer/composer. Cuba is one of the hottest beds of music on the planet. Llanes e-mailed me the next day, asking to be introduced to Rivas. It wouldn’t surprise me if a painting were to come out of their getting acquainted. His mentor, Green, has started to reveal to the world some of what he calls his jazz series. Images of some of them were first shown in a slide show at the Charleston Jazz Initiative’s Legends Festival in June. Some are included in an exhibition now at Gallery Chuma, 43 John St., downtown. It’s called “Gullah Memories” and will be on display until Nov. 20. The group of new works are acrylics on paper. (By the way, owner Chuma Nwokike hosts an occasional live music series called John Street Jazz). Green’s artistry is not the

only thing at play in his jazz paintings. These works are thoroughly rooted in local culture. Green, who lives and works on Daniel Island, was born in Gardens Corner, just this side of Beaufort. What he’s doing that’s so important is that he’s including his impressions of local players in some of the paintings. His vast knowledge of the world of the arts makes him know that doing that is the only true way to represent your home on the world’s stage. One of the paintings at Chuma’s is titled “Quentin and Kevin.” The musicians in the painting are Quentin Baxter and bassist Kevin Hamilton. Green can be seen around town at all sorts of events, especially music shows. His favorite haunt is the Charleston Grill, where Baxter, Hamilton and others offer some of the best live jazz in town. The Grill was home for many years to some of his work. He contributed mightily to the famed venue’s identity. Green’s art enhanced the nightly music and vice versa.

He understands Charleston’s place in American history and he is vitally interested in properly preserving it’s authentic culture: demystifying it, interpreting it through indigenous eyes and sharing it with the rest of the world. He’s planning some projects soon to be launched; and art and jazz are at the heart of them. He’s on other people’s list of possibilities, too. Jazz Artists of Charleston, for example, is considering another “visual” jazz exhibition. In April, it mounted “See Jazz,” a photo display at the Center for Photography of local musicians at work. Some of the pieces have been in the windows of the WALK Gallery at King and Calhoun streets for the last few months. I think Green’s work would fit nicely in anybody’s plan to bring truth and beauty to the world by way of the Lowcountry.

I’d rather watch “Serious Baby,” which is a home video of an adorable baby alternating between laughing and giving “the evil eye.” That baby gets me every time. “David After Dentist,” a 2009 video with more than 70 million views, shows a young boy named David, who, after having a tooth removed, asking questions such as “Is this real life?” The video even has its own website ( and marketing campaign.

George Hincapie, a 14-time Tour de France veteran, takes his position at the start of last year’s Jerry Zucker Ride for Hope, a cancer charity bike ride. Hincapie is returning for this year’s ride, as well.

Jerry Zucker Ride for Hope Sunday


merican cycler George Hincapie returns to Charleston on Sunday for the third annual Jerry Zucker Ride for Hope, a metric and half-metric century cancercharity bike ride that will be departing from a new venue this year. Hincapie, who rode with Lance Armstrong during his seven Tour de France victories, calls Greenville home and rode in last year’s event, which drew 200 riders and raised $140,000 for local cancer charities. One reason for that is that riders are expected to raise or donate a minimum of $500 to participate. Dawson Cherry, founder

of the ride, hopes for similar numbers this year. While the ride has been based out of Blackbaud Stadium on Daniel Island the previous two years, this year’s event will be based near the Park West Recreation Center track in Mount Pleasant. Safety concerns on Clement’s Ferry Road prompted the change. Late registration and packet pick-up for the ride will be 1-3 p.m. Saturday at the Charleston Bicycle Company and Running Shop on East Bay Street or 6:30-8 a.m. Sunday at the Park West facility.

Club Pantheon’s Blume shines; weather perfect for India Festival BY CAROLINE MILLARD AND KAREN BRIGGS Special to The Post and Courier


Indian Festival at Marion Square Sunday afternoon at Marion Square in downtown Charleston played the perfect scene for the second annual Indian festival hosted by the India Association of Greater Charleston. The free event pulled a strong crowd from the community, as guests meandered through bazaar-style tents. Vendors set booths full of traditional Indian wares, while

guests happily explored a myriad of exotic dresses, jewelry and more. The food at the festival hit a particular high note around lunch time, as long lines snaked from each of the food tents. West Ashley restaurant Taste of India was one of the participating venues and had a line of festivalgoers waiting for the traditional Indian culinary fare. A favorite of the afternoon was eyebrow threading by Charleston resident Rupal Kotecha. While easily confused as a form of torture, eyebrow threading yields better results than both plucking and waxing. Just remember to bring a tissue. Usually a luxury left mostly for larger cities, Kotecha has threaded eye brows quietly in the Holy City for nearly 10 years. Guests hesitantly waited in line, and happily emerged with perfect eyebrows each time.


The India Festival at Marion Square featured vendors, traditional Indian wares, food and more.


ast Thursday’s Blume show adopted “Time” as its theme as a nod to “Receiver,” the timebased media fest for which all proceeds were donated. Charleston’s up-and-coming art set blazed into Club Pantheon on a shock of rainbow-colored bikes, which were watched over by the Holy City Bike Co-op. Guests took turns posing for “Bed Time” an ’80s, boudoir inspired Polaroid photo tent. Volunteer photographers manned the set, complete with bed, multicolored stuffed animals and an old television from that era. Inside, works by Nick Jenkins, Allison Evans and others graced the walls of the upper lounge. Anson Cyr and Amanda

Downey painted live while Karin Olah screen printed goodies for attendees to take home. The real story was the dance floor, which got raw after an early night hiccup: no one dancing. Once Nikki Click hit the stage with her mix of glam rock ferociousness, however, all was right again.

hen you are bouncing with excitement, it’s rather hard to type. “What in the world is so exciting?” you may ask.

I recently swooshed into Artist and Craftsmen with the abrupt notion that I had a lot I wanted to express and needed a new journal immediately. I woke up and thought to myself, “I should listen to ‘The Art of Happiness’ (a book by the Dalai Lama) audio recording on my jog today.” Before going, I checked my Facebook account and found out that the Dalai Lama happened to be lecturing at Emory University this week. Not only that, but he was giving a talk on “The Creative Journey” (among other topics). Hmm. Exactly what I had been looking for, an amazing teacher who would shed light on merging creativity and spirituality in the arts. Of course, it was sold out. But when you really need something to happen, the universe will usually accommodate. Voila. Tickets appeared. Ridiculous squeals of joy and happy dances took place. “The Creative Journey” event consisted of Golden Globe-winning actor and humanitarian Richard Gere

Asheville for Moogfest), the Georgia native paused for a moment to chat. Q: Outkast came about just as sampling was being used less and less. What is your take on sampling’s dwindling presence in modern rap? A: I think there is still a presence today of sampling, but its good for an artist to go out and create their own beats so people can sample that down the line as well. Q: As time has gone on, do you find yourself listening to hip-hop still or have you moved away from it? A: I listen to a lot of different types of music. Yes, of course I still listen to hiphop, but some of my other favorites are Kate Nash, Neil

Young, Eric Clapton and, of course, Bob Marley. Q: What’s your take on the ever-changing rules of rap music, namely hiphop artists covering other hip-hop artists when it was once considered a cardinal sin in the rap world? A: Things change and evolve and it doesn’t always mean they are bad changes. I make my own rules. Q: You’ve been pretty vocal regarding your relationship with Jive, a label that was once known more for BDP, Too $hort and Schoolly D, than Britney Spears and ’N Sync. What are your thoughts on the major label business model in the face of the free rein that the Internet seems to

give artists of all genres and notoriety? A: Well, I think it’s important for the label to let the artist have creative rein and not be so boxed up because then they are letting everyone know who they are as an artist and not having too many cooks in the kitchen sort of approach. Q: Before the LaFace groups blew up, there didn’t seem to be many hiphop acts that represented the Georgia scene as much. How does it feel to have taken part in bringing attention to the scene? A: Georgia is my home. There’s so many talented artists in the South, and especially Georgia, so I’m happy to have played a part in putting it on the map. Q: What was the first song that you ever felt growing up and what was it about that particular song that connected with you so much? Please see BIG, Page 17E

Sister Hazel’s ‘Highway’ leads to the Music Farm BY HARRIS COHEN

Special to The Post and Courier


hile they recently held the fifth annual Hazelnut Hang fan fest at the Windjammer in early June, Charleston favorite Sister Hazel plays downtown for the first time in a couple of years at the Music farm Friday night. Fans should have no fear of deja vu, however, as the band will be performing songs from its new album released last week. “Heartland Highway,” the eighth studio album, quickly follows last year’s “Release,” which reached the band’s highest spot ever on the Billboard album charts, including the platinum “Somewhere More Familiar” CD. “Heartland Highway” continues Sister Hazel’s ongoing evolution of gradually breaking new stylistic ground. “We wanted to make a different Sister Hazel album but while still expressing our essence,” said Bass player Jett Beres of last year’s CD. “The result was a cohesive collection of tight songs.” For the new album, each band member brought two or three ideas for songs and the band as a whole worked them up. The song’s author still steered and controlled the process. The result this time is a more loose sound and a group of more diverse songs. “We individually branched out in the songwriting function and experimented,” said lead guitarist Ryan Newell. “This CD shows the widely varying tastes in music among the band members.” Read more online at


Sister Hazel’s latest album is “Heartland Highway.”

evolve into a record. It’s like catching lightning in a bottle,” he said.

The Dubplates played the very first Skinful Halloween party, more than ten years ago.


Dubplates serve up reggae for Skinful BY ELIZABETH BOWERS

Special to The Post and Courier


ub Island Soundsystem started playing for the scantily clad in 2003. Skinful was just a house party then, and the guys played in a sunken living room. They were some of the first to experience what was then called the “Naked Halloween Party.” Manager and band member David Brisacher says, “It’s a crazy sensation. Skinful has grown from that house party to a major production and event.” Just like the Halloween production itself, the group has grown from three guys

A: It wasn’t the very first, but there’s one memory that still sticks out in my mind. Run-DMC was my all-time favorite. I remember like it was yesterday. My dad came home from the service on break one time and he had just bought a Camaro IROC. The first time I was in the car alone with him, he let me sit on his lap and he was

deejaying to The Dubplates. There are seven vocalists, a drummer, bassist, keys, two guitarists and a full percussion and horn section. The band is integral to the Skinful process. This week, The Dubplates were putting up fencing at the old warehouse on Folly Road. The rhythm section was cutting bamboo. “We’ve been blessed to be a regular staple of Skinful

for so many years. People have gotten to watch how our group has progressed through all the Skinfuls from 2003 to 2010,” Brisacher says. On Saturday, they will take to the main stage and start the party. “Reggae is the best vibe for people to make sure they have a good safe time,” he says. “Rarely will you see a fight break out at a

reggae concert. The music sets the stage for good time. Puts out good vibrations and love for your neighbor. A positive message gets the party started on the right track.” Papa Robbie, Daddy Brady, Big Hair, Rudiments, Dub Denizen and Shawn Legare have all performed with Dub Island Soundsystem since 2002, but look forward to the Skinful crowd yearly. “Teachers, doctors, parents use Skinful as the one time of year to let their freak out,” Brisacher says. “Makes it fun as performers. There is no better crowd than the Skinful crowd.”

singing “Rock Box.” It’s one of those memories you can never ever get out of your head. My father, God bless him, passed away two years ago and that’s one of the fondest memories I ever have of him. I was like “OK, my dad is Superman.” That’s why the new album is an ode to him. Q: You said once a while back, “Right now, we’re putting beats together for the OutKast album. ...

When Dre finishes, we’ll commence and record.” On behalf of all hard-headed Outkast fanatics, how close is Dre to finishing that album? A: You would have to ask him that question, but the new OutKast album is in the works and will be coming in the very near future. Q: Are you going to take part in any more projects like “big”? A: “Big” was a powerful

piece. It had great energy, a lot of people came out to experience something new. So, yeah, I’m definitely open to any future opportunities that may arise. Q: How do you separate your persona from your private life? A: My family knows it’s business. Balancing work and private life is not always easy but you just have to make it work.

The Avett Brothers LIVE, VOLUME 3 (Columbia/American)

Back in August 2009, a little over a month before the release of the album “I and Love and You,” the North Carolina band The Avett Brothers played a show at Charlotte’s Bojangles Coliseum. Already a popular underground band, “I and Love and You” would be the band’s major label debut, and would go on to be on more than a few critics’ Top 10 lists by the end of that year. On that August night, though, with the success of that soon-tobe-released album still uncertain, The Avett Brothers were out to do what they always do live onstage; entertain their audience. Long known as an electrifying live act, The Avetts didn’t disappoint at their hometown show (the Avett Brothers hail from Concord, just outside Charlotte). Kicking off with “Pretty Girl from Matthews,” the band quickly settled into its signature down home yet forward-thinking musical style. While there are live performances of songs from the new album, including the title track and “Kick Drum Heart,” the excellent live recording finds the band drawing from a decade’s worth of music. Standout performances include “Talk on Indolence,” “When I Drink,” and “Distraction #74” demonstrate why the rest of the world is discovering what music lovers all over the Southeast already knew; that The Avett Brothers is one of the most talented bands out there at this moment. If you missed them when they played the North Charleston Performing Arts Center earlier this year, then listen to “Live, Volume 3” to see what you missed. KEY TRACKS: “Talk on Indolence,” “I and Love and You,” “Head Full of Doubt/Road Full of Promise”



Fans of the Rolling Stones are probably already salivating at the prospect of finally owning an official version of this concert film. Recorded at a series of shows in Texas in 1972, “Ladies & Gentlemen The Rolling Stones” captures the legendary rock ’n’ roll band back when it was still dangerous. Touring in support of its album “Exile on Main Street,” The Stones were in the middle of making the transition from ’60s superstars to hopefully still being relevant in a new decade with new musical ideas. Happily for fans, both the album and the subsequent tour solidified The Stones’ reputation as one of the world’s biggest rock acts. The film was released to a limited number of theaters in 1974, and aside from bootlegs, it has not really been available for viewing since. The film shows Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts, Bill Wyman and Mick Taylor at one of the band’s highest career peaks. Jagger, who has always had a tremendous amount of swagger onstage, is absolutely on fire here. The songs are all classics, including “Brown Sugar,” “Tumbling Dice” and “You Can’t Always Get What You Want.” The DVD extras include rehearsal footage shot in Switzerland, footage from the TV show “The Old Grey Whistle Test” and interviews with Jagger from both 1972 and 2010. While the quality of the video could be better, this is nonetheless an exciting release for fans of The Rolling Stones. KEY TRACKS: “Brown Sugar,” “Tumbling Dice,” “Love in Vain”



When one talks about the best songwriters of the last century, the names John Lennon and Paul McCartney eventually come up. While McCartney tended to write in a more pop-oriented style, Lennon’s songs were often more philosophical and, especially later, political. After the breakup of The Beatles, John enjoyed a robust solo career. At the time of his murder in 1980, he had just begun a comeback effort after dropping almost completely out of public sight to raise his son, Sean. There have been several compilations of John Lennon’s music released since the former Beatle’s death. I doubt that this latest collection, “Power to the People: The Hits,” will be the last. The big reason for releasing this best of CD is that Lennon would have been 70 years old this month. While the man is gone, his music shines on. If you don’t already have an earlier collection of Lennon’s music, or if you cannot afford the 11-CD “John Lennon Signature Box” that was released this month, then the remastered versions of his most popular songs sounds great here. Among the 15 tunes included on the CD are gems such as “Instant Karma! (We All Shine On),” “Imagine,” “Watching the Wheels” and “Give Peace a Chance.” There are some notable omissions, particularly “Beautiful Boy (Darling Boy)” and “Nobody Told Me.” Still, there’s a lot to love on this latest collection from one of the 20th century’s greatest songwriters. KEY TRACKS: “Instant Karma (We All Shine On),” “Imagine,” “Watching the Wheels”



While every musical style conveys a range of emotions in one way or another, it seems that bluegrass does so particularly well. Whether it is the high lonesome sound of a bluegrass singer pining for a lost love, or a quintet going to town on their instruments in a joyous show of musical talent, there is no mistaking the sentiment that is coming from the music. Before he was known for contemporary country music hits such as “Third Rock from the Sun” and “Pickup Man,” Joe Diffie played bluegrass music. Now, after a recording career that began in 1990, Diffie has come back to bluegrass, recording “Homecoming: The Bluegrass Album.” Co-produced by Diffie and Luke Wooten, Diffie spared no expense in making the album, recruiting musicians such as Rob Ickes, Aubrey Haynie, Paul Compton, Bryan Sutton, Mark Fain and Charlie Cushman. Diffie also called in favors from artists such as The Grascals and Rhonda Vincent. The result is a superbly satisfying bluegrass album that will appeal to bluegrass aficionados and won’t alienate his fans on the contemporary country music side of the fence. Standout tracks include “Tall Cornstalk,” “I Know How It Feels,” and a great bluegrass reworking of Otis Redding’s “Hard To Handle.” Here’s hoping that it doesn’t take so long for Diffie to return to his bluegrass roots next time. KEY TRACKS: “Tall Cornstalk,” “I Know How It Feels,” “Hard To Handle”

Downtown ‘Zombie Walk’ to Benefit MUSC BY DENISE K. JAMES

Special to The Post and Courier


hen I was a kid, I had an obsession with writing scary tales. I would call them things like “The Grave Where No One Lies,” or “The Person with No Face.” Inevitably, a lot of them would be based on or around Halloween. If you’re craving the same sort of supernatural experience, try the Zombie Walk this weekend. It’s guaranteed to be a site of flesh-dripping grotesqueness but the best part is, it’s for charity. What better way to feel good and evil at the same time? Cassandra White, the organizer of the Zombie Walk, attributes the inspiration to her best friend, Kristopher Bristow, who passed away in 2009 after battling pulmonary hypertension. This year’s Zombie Walk, Charleston’s first ever, will benefit the MUSC Pulmonary Hypertension program. “I decided to do this because there is barely any awareness about this particu-

lar disease,” White says. “I’m doing it for Kris, but also for all the people who have lost loved ones to this illness.” White is known around town as a “hooper,” that is, someone who takes the art of hula hooping to the next level. She credits Bristow for introducing her to the art form. “I hoop because of Kris,” she says. “He was a friend who literally changed my life. He pushed me and encouraged me to be a better person.” If you find yourself wondering how, exactly, pulmonary hypertension and zombies go together, White has a simple answer. “Kris really loved to costume,” she explains. “He also loved a good zombie walk. He would be first in line for this event if he were still here. Also, I’m a big fan of zombie walks myself. They happen all the time in other cities.” The walk begins at 5:30 p.m. Sunday in Marion Square. It costs $5 to participate, and all proceeds will benefit the program. “We’ll walk down King

Street from Marion Square, then take a left at Market Street, then another left on Meeting Street until we get back to the square,” says White. “Usually a zombie walk is longer than that, but we’ll keep it simple since this is our first walk! “ After the walk, participants can enjoy each other’s company and the feel-good vibes during a dinner at Mellow Mushroom on King Street. There’s also an after-party, beginning at 9 p.m., at the Market Street Saloon. “It’s free to get into the after-party if you participated in the walk, but if you just come to the party, it costs $5,” says White. “The money from the after-party also benefits the program. Plus, there will be an auction.” White hopes to have the event become annual, but she says everyone will have to behave. “Let’s just make sure we don’t jump on people’s cars or harass bystanders,” she laughs. “I think Charleston could use a yearly zombie walk.”

Rocky Horror returns to Charleston Ballet Theatre Staff Reports


harleston Ballet Theatre is bringing back its ballet production of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show.” It opens Friday and will be performed for two weeks. Stephen Gabriel will once again play the lead role. Much like the popular “shadow casts” that famously act out the action in front of the screen, the CBT dance company takes on the iconic roles in front of the screen as well, adding only the element of dance to the show’s festivities. “Rocky Horror” enthusiasts are encourage to attend in full costume regalia and can

expect all the bells and whistles that accompany a standard cult screening. As has been the tradition since its first midnight showing at the famed Waverly Theatre in New York City in 1976, audiences are expected to shout responses to the characters’ statements on the screen, including melodramatic abuse of the characters or actors, puns and pop culture references. CBT’s “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” is performed at the Black Box Theatre on 477 King St. Show times are 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday and Oct. 29 and 30. Tickets are $1532. Visit or call the box office at 723-7334.

DEADication photo show debuts at Imaging Arts

Steven Hyatt’s haunted works

“DEADication,” a Halloween-themed photography show features Steven Hyatt and other local photoghers. The showwill debut at Imaging Arts at 5 p.m. Friday. Here are some of the images:


Special to The Post and Courier


teven Hyatt said that everything he has done artistically has happened by chance. About a year ago, he was walking down the street when he came across a dead bird. The skull was picked bare, but the body was still as beautiful and intact as it has been when the bird was alive. Hyatt had never seen anything like it and has since been inspired to photograph dead animals and bones in a way that highlights their beauty. This Friday at Imaging Arts Gallery, Hyatt and eight other artists will be featuring their work at “DEADication,” an art show with startling and fearsome images honoring the dark side. Hyatt is the gallery coordinator at Imaging Arts and is well-known for his photographs of the churches of Charleston. He also creates abstract Polaroid manipulations where he interrupts the developing process and creates colorful, surreal imprints of the original image. “The process of creating inspires me,” Hyatt says. “I make art to get things inside of me out, and other times to take something in. “I fell in love with art because of the freedom in

Special to The Post and Courier

if you go WHAT: Skinful Halloween WHERE: Brick House Kitchen, 1575 Folly Road WHEN: 8 p.m.-until Saturday TICKETS: $50, at CHARITY: A portion of the proceeds benefit Roper St. Francis Ryan White Program and The Surfer’s Healing Organization. TRANSPORTATION AND PARKING: Shuttles will run 6:30 p.m.-4:30 a.m. from James Island Lowe’s, Gold’s Gym and Buffalo South. No parking onsite will be allowed. MORE INFO: SKINFUL?: Sorry nudists, but costumes are required.

ust when you thought it couldn’t possibly get any bigger, better or freakier, Skinful Halloween has done just that. Saturday night’s 10th anniversary howling good party will take over the old dairy plant at 1575 Folly Road and the 12 acres of land behind it and Brick House Kitchen on James Island. In what promises to be the most sinful of the Skinfuls, the party goes 8 p.m.until, and includes the best of years past, plus more. “It’s like Disney World, but for freaks,” said event organizer David Brisacher of Big Hair Productions. Between the warehouse and various outdoor tents, domes and areas, featured performers include Charleston High Rollers, Bizzaro Burlesque, Inner Cirkus, a pole-dancing troupe on 25foot-high poles, aerialists, break dancers, a mechanical bull, jump castles, zip line and a glass-eating African chief (seriously). Hay rides will take you through trails that have been carved out of the woods as well as the all-inclusive, two-story VIP area and lounge. Brick House Kitchen will provide the grub and Ice Box will run the bar. The lineup for the main stage starts with Dub Island & The Dubplates, continues with Third World and then presents Mini Kiss (you’ve seen them on the Dr. Pepper commercials). While Mini Kiss wraps up, Rebirth Brass Band will do what they do best. The well-known, heavy funk brass band from HBO’s “Treme” will begin its processional that will twist through the trails, end at the main stage and play until around 1 a.m. Pimps of Joytime will end the night. Bands on the break-out stages will include Sol Driven Train, Key of Q, Gaslight Street with Rusty Trombone, Torture Town, Mission Hill, Son of a Bad Man, M.O. Theory and Son of Cane. “If you’re into electronic, if you’re into rock or funk or whatever, you can literally walk around the party and get some of every vibe,” said Brisacher.

It’s like this release for people where they’re able to dress up in a costume and just let their freak out with 2,000 of their closest friends. It’s great. We’re blessed because everybody that comes out is such a respectable crowd.” – David Brisacher, event organizer

The Spaced Invaders will light up the wall outside the warehouse with projections and beats. Other DJs spread throughout will include Jude, James Belk, Trail Mix, Jake B and Rocky Horror. Art and set designs are all done by local artists from Scott Debus to Ishmael, and even include lasers shooting out of artwork. “It’s going to be a spectacle. Hopefully, people will come and be completely wowed,” said Brisacher. “We’re definitely trying to make a couple of people’s heads explode.” He warns that with so much going on, you might miss more than you actually see. However, you won’t have to guard your alcohol supply. New this year will be the cooler check. If you decide to BYOB, just check it in for a $5 fee, get a number and come back as many times as you like. Tip for the night: Use the full cash bar early, as it must shut down at normal bar hours. Then use your own stuff that’s been chilling in the cooler check. ATMs will be on site for water, food and random souvenirs. All proceeds from the cooler check will go to the Roper St. Francis Ryan White Program and The Surfer’s Healing Organization. Skinful event founder and party master, Dr. Brian King, makes contributions every year to charities, whether the event makes money or not. Profits aren’t the point for him. “It’s fun to dress up and this party has

never been about nudity,” King said. “It’s always been about individual creativity and artistic expression and dressing up and then just letting loose for one night.” King started the legendary Halloween party almost 14 years ago when it was just a haunted house he ran for neighborhood children with a follow-up party for adults. Sick of friends not dressing up for the party, he jokingly started putting “Costume or Naked” on the invites. Most got the hint and starting wearing costumes. One year, though, a pregnant friend came out completely nude. She ran off most of the party-goers, but the next year, the idea caught on. The revelry became an any-way-you-wantto-come party and slowly evolved into Skinful as hundreds more flocked to the event, outgrowing King’s house. These days, costumes are required. “We do it more for the art of it, the music and the pleasure, the love of it,” said Brisacher. “Skinful is for the people that have come to it regularly and have been coming for years and years. They look forward to it like people look forward to Christmas. It’s like this release for people where they’re able to dress up in a costume and just let their freak out with 2,000 of their closest friends. It’s great. “We’re blessed because everybody that comes out is such a respectable crowd,” he continued. “There’s normally nothing but love going on, and that’s normally the only thing that security has to break up,” he laughed. Safety is at the forefront of both King and Brisacher’s priorities. An EMT will be on hand as well as the fire department and security. Responsibility is encouraged. No parking is available on site, but 50passenger buses will shuttle party-goers continuously from Lowe’s, Gold’s Gym and Buffalo South, all on James Island. Several taxi services are involved as well. “We’ve prided ourselves — knock on wood — that we haven’t had any issues. We’ve gone above and beyond and taken most measures as far as safety,” said King. “We want it to be safe. We want everyone to be comfortable.” “It’s not a party for the faint of heart, that’s for sure!”

can be had as subs or as entrees topping pastas with sides of garlic bread. Lasagna comes fully loaded, oozing cheese and chunky red sauce. Like Chef Brett McKee (17 North, 15 North), Swartz has used his social media position on FaceBook to determine his customers likes. The stoneground honey wheat pizza dough now on the menu is a result of this dialogue. Luke ‘n Ollie’s features fresh pizza dough made to their specs and out-sourced to a local bakery. Their sub buns will give Amoroso’s (the roll that made the Philly cheesesteak famous) a run for the money. This is a pizza place, after all, and the dough scraps that accompany the hummus ($6.50) dip are none other than toasted pizza “chips.” The garlic oil is made in-house as is the bal-

samic vinaigrette and coleslaw. The bread “bowls” are formed from that trinity of bread, water and yeast, aka dough. Pizza places seem to be the cash crop of our current economy. Swartz takes the ingredients up a notch and with his attention to freshness and willingness to test the waters of the appetites of his customers is on to winning combinations. The pizza is available oldschool, by the slice ($2.75), and can be topped by a variety of ingredients from anchovies to ricotta (50 cents to 75 cents). Whole pies are 10 inches and 16 inches and can be ordered from a menu of pizzas or customized to your taste.

sundaes and dessert pizzas will satisfy your sweet tooth. The dessert menu availability changes, so check in first if you are hankering for a taste of that Twinkie-misu! Servers were friendly, outgoing and well-schooled about the menu. But they can easily get distracted as the restaurant traffic builds and they make their way between indoor and outdoor seating areas. Whether it was lunch hour, tourists en masse, or busy carry-out orders, the staff struggled to maintain timely service. These problems are easy to solve. LNO stretches the best of a pizzeria over a menu that incorporates Southern Italian favorites, adds a dash of local specialties, and delivers them with quality ingredients.

7 Cafe impressive new West Ashley bar, restaurant

Smothered pork chops with red rice, cabbage and cornbread. PHOTOS BY ROB YOUNG


Special to The Post and Courier


rom the exterior, 7 Cafe cuts an unusual profile: dark-tinted windows and a single, neon “Open” sign near the doorway. If the aim is to arouse curiosity, then 7 succeeds. Because inside, the splashy, new bar and restaurant is an impressive find. Charleston businessman Jerome Heyward owns the cafe. It took him 63 days, he says, to strip the effects belonging to the location’s previous inhabitant, Tootie’s Sidewalk Cafe and Ice Cream Parlor, including walls dressed in tropical pastels along with a mascot named Tootie the Toucan. As for 7, it’s emerged a much different venue, the design entirely Heyward’s. The bar can claim stake as the cafe’s centerpiece.

The countertop is cast in low, yellow lighting and the drinks are reasonably priced: $3 for beers and $5 for liquor drinks. One section is cordoned off by purple velvet ropes, sort of a curious sight during the day, but perhaps not out of place come evenings. Just beyond that, a lengthy banquette runs down a portion of one of the walls. Lunch calls for a menu of Southern favorites: smothered and fried pork chops, baked turkey wings, fried fish and chicken wings, ox tail and ribs. The pork chops are nicely breaded, the chicken wings

fried crisp, but 7’s starches and veggies earn special mention. The macaroni and cheese is baked crunchy, the green beans are nicely salted and the cabbage comes cooked with bacon. It’s all affordable, too: $7.95 for a meat-and-two plate. On Saturday mornings, 7 Cafe celebrates with a shrimp-and-grits breakfast, and a three-piece, live jazz band. And in the evenings, the restaurant serves a quartet of small plates as entrees: grilled salmon with jasmine rice, grilled shrimp, blackened chicken pasta and shrimp and grits.

‘Freakonomics’ presents unconventional wisdom unevenly

‘Unfinished’ is a profoundly unnerving historical document of Jewish history H


The Washington Post


The Washington Post


Film Unfinished” may not be the strangest making-of documentary you’ve ever seen. It may, however, be the most affecting. The film that Israeli director Yael Hersonski takes as her subject is also a documentary, of sorts. It’s an hour-long rough cut of a silent Nazi propaganda film, shot over 30 days in May 1942 inside Warsaw’s Jewish ghetto and titled simply “The Ghetto.” “A Film Unfinished” doesn’t so much finish “The Ghetto” as it does place the earlier movie in its proper context, incorporating longmissing outtakes that reveal staging of scenes that were once thought to be authentic by many historians. There’s no real surprise there. The fact that Nazis might have set up a scene of well-dressed Jews ignoring Jewish beggars as they stride into a shop, as a way to prove that Jews don’t care about those in need, is disgusting, but is it really news? Of course the Nazi film tries to portray Germans in the best possible light. “Look how well we take care of our Jews,” it seems to say. Butchered geese, meant to show abundance of the ghetto, would be brought in when scenes were shot at the Warsaw market. (Though the film also shows residents of the ghetto buying horse meat as well. Not many, of course, could afford even that.) But revealing the secrets hidden in the raw footage is not Hersonski’s most powerful weapon. The film doesn’t hit you over the head, but in its own way, it is quietly devastating.


Yael Hersonski’s documentary “A Film Unfinished” looks at “The Ghetto,” a Nazi-produced movie about the Warsaw Ghetto. The unfinished film, discovered after the war, had no soundtrack. Since the end of WWII, one copy of a 60-minute propaganda film, shot by the Nazis in May 1942, sat undisturbed in an East German archive.

Like the filmmakers behind “The Ghetto,” she, too, uses staging, in this case filming an actor in the role of Willy Wist, the only cameraman who worked on “The Ghetto” to have been identified by name. In the end, “A Film Unfinished” doesn’t really need to

add anything to “The Ghetto” to put the final touches to it. The eyes of those whom Wist and his crew filmed — alternately hollow, haunted and horrified at being made complicit in their own character assassination — speak most loudly of all.

ere’s a stumper for authors Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner, the geniuses behind the 2005 best-seller “Freakonomics,” which mined strange correspondences and uncanny connections out of the most seemingly unrelated things (more widely available abortion and the falling crime rate, for instance): Even if you’ve never read the book, why does the new documentary based on it feel so ... familiar? Maybe it’s because of all those cocktail-party conversations the book inspired. At this point, who in Washington doesn’t feel like they’ve read it? Or maybe it was all those New York Times Sunday magazine articles the authors penned under the “Freakonomics” banner. They certainly helped make the term, which describes a new way of looking at the world and the sometimes unexpected way things work, a household word. Maybe, just maybe, it’s because the movie isn’t freaky enough. It certainly comes with a pedigree. The omnibus documentary is a compendium of four “chapters,” each based on a section of the book and each directed by a different hotshot documentarian. In “A Roshanda by Any Other Name,” Morgan Spurlock (“Super Size Me”) looks at the economic impact of “black” vs. “white” names. In “Pure Corruption,” Alex Gibney (“Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room”) examines cheating in the world of Japanese sumo wrestling. In “It’s Not Always a Wonderful Life,” Eugene Jarecki (“Why We Fight”) plumbs the aforementioned connection between abortion and crime. And finally, in “Can a Ninth Grader Be Bribed to

Succeed?” Rachel Grady and Heidi Ewing (“Jesus Camp”) ask whether, well, the title of that last one is kind of selfexplanatory. That could be part of the problem. There’s a certain obviousness to the movie that blunts some points made by Levitt and Dubner, who appear between segments in lively interviews. Take, for example, the revelation, in Spurlock’s generally bouncy installment, that the same resume, sent out once under the name Tyrone and again under another stereotypically white-sounding name would generate fewer callbacks. The fact that such prejudice still exists, even in this supposedly post-racial age, is disturbing but hardly a bombshell. Nor is cheating among sumo athletes, at least to American ears, which have become inured to hearing about such sporting scandals. The most interesting thing about that segment,

which plays like an episode of “60 Minutes” or “20/20,” is the statistical analysis that led to the conclusion that cheating among Japanese wrestlers was rampant. But perhaps the freakiest of the chapters is the one drawing a link between the legalization of abortion in America and the attendant drop in crime. It’s controversial, which makes it most deserving of the movie’s title, whether you agree with the premise or not. Yet in the movie at least, the hypothesis that fewer unwanted children naturally equates to fewer criminals seems hardly as “unimpeached” as Jarecki’s segment calls it. In the end, we see Levitt — an economist, Dubner a journalist — wondering aloud whether the experiment might work better if they started the carrot-andstick approach earlier, say, in elementary school. Yeah, maybe. Get back to us when you find out.

Saga of making ‘The Hobbit’ continues BY BEN FRITZ AND CLAUDIA ELLER

Los Angeles Times


ollowing a multitude of delays, Warner Bros. and co-financing partner Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Inc. have agreed to start production in February on the two films that serve as a prequel to the blockbuster “Lord of the Rings” trilogy, people familiar with the situation said. Only one hitch remains, however, and it may not necessarily be a small one. The studios are waiting to announce the greenlight because a labor dispute between director Peter Jackson and the Screen Actors Guild and other performers unions is not yet resolved. The unions have advised members not to work on “The Hobbit” because they claim it’s a nonunion production. The parties are hopeful that a resolution is imminent, which would pave the way for the movies to be shot in Jackson’s home country of New Zealand, where “Lord of the Rings” was made and preproduction for the new films is under way. The first “Hobbit” movie is scheduled to be released in December 2012 and the second the following holiday season, both in 3-D. Production on “The Hobbit” had also been held up because of the financial problems of MGM, which owns international distribution rights to the pictures and is obligated to cover half of the budget, which is expected to approach $500 million. Although MGM is still not financially able to foot its part of the bill, it had to commit to the production before filming could start. MGM is expected to talk to potential funding sources,

So I’m OK about it. “Physically, I don’t know if can run as hard as I could at 60 or 70. But I probably could. I probably could get close.” Eastwood thinks back to shooting 2004’s “Million Dollar Baby,” which followed 1992’s “Unforgiven” as his second Academy Award winner for best picture and director, and how each day he and collaborators would do dips on the parallel bars on the set of the boxing drama. Eastwood said he could do more dips than colleagues 40 or 45 years younger. That’s not a boast from the soft-spoken Eastwood, who rose to fame on TV’s “Rawhide,” became a bigscreen star with “A Fistful of Dollars” and “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly” and was an icon of vigilante justice with his “Dirty Harry” movies. He’s simply acknowledging the discipline he knows he possesses to work hard and efficiently. That’s part of the secret of his decades-long affiliation with Warner Bros., where executives have signed off

on story angles that don’t scream box office — euthanasia in “Million Dollar Baby,” child molestation in 2003 best-picture nominee “Mystic River” — knowing that Eastwood would bring them an interesting film at a reasonable price, often under budget and ahead of schedule. Though Eastwood’s collaborators say he will shoot 10 takes of a scene when needed, he’s often content doing a couple of takes and moving on. Eastwood was attracted to “Hereafter” because it deals with the afterlife in a spiritual manner without turning religious. He attended a variety of churches, mostly Protestant, as a boy but gave up on it early on, disliking the wrathful tone that was preached. “I couldn’t believe that God would be a great sadist in the sky, getting pleasure out of, ‘If you screw up, I’m going to bust you, boy,’ ” Eastwood said. “That’s a way of keeping people in line, I guess.” He does find Buddhism attractive, “because they don’t seem to be as mean-spirited, and their idea of God is sort of a heavyset guy who’s got a smile on his face, and I thought, hey, that’s nice,” Eastwood said.

‘Conviction’ is a good ride BY MICHAEL PHILLIPS Chicago Tribune

T Bruce Willis (from left) John Malkovich and Helen Mirren star in the all-star action comedy, “Red.” FRANK MASI/COURTESY SUMMIT ENTERTAINMENT/MCT

‘Red’ is leaden caper for Willis and pals



ritics often gripe about the blink-and-you’vemissed-it frenzy of action sequences in today’s Hollywood thrillers. The spy caper “Red” admirably rejects the trend, slowing things down to a digestible pace appropriate for vintage-borderingon-geriatric heroes Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, John Malkovich and Helen Mirren. Yet despite the impressive cast, which includes MaryLouise Parker, Richard Dreyfuss and Ernest Borgnine, this latest adaptation of a hip graphic novel fails to fill in the spaces between the action with anything terribly interesting. Director Robert Schwentke (‘‘Flightplan,” “The Time Traveler’s Wife”) aims for a mix of action and comedy but never quite delivers on either. The action is OK, though nothing you haven’t seen done better a hundred times before. Some of the gunplay becomes interminable, the filmmakers turning buildings and vehicles into Swiss cheese as characters fire off endless rounds of ammo. The laughs are slight and

sporadic, sibling screenwriters Jon and Erich Hoeber unable to generate enough clever interplay among the story’s band of ex-CIA operatives targeted for elimination. It’s a huge missed opportunity, given Willis’ coolunder-fire comic charms and the brilliant co-stars off whom he could have been bouncing better wisecracks. Willis’ Frank Moses is a former black-ops maestro put out to pasture, living quietly in retirement when a hit squad shows up at his suburban house to snuff him out. Escaping his assailants, Frank reasons whoever’s behind the plot will go after the people he cares about, so he rushes off to protect Sarah (Parker), a federal pension-benefits worker he’s

been awkwardly courting by phone. With her gift for playing wily and ditzy at the same time, Parker is the best thing about “Red” as her wide-eyed, innocent Sarah, longing to escape her office cubicle and have some adventures, becomes Frank’s gung-ho confederate on a zigzagging trek around the country. Willis does a decent variation on his “Die Hard” act, playing a supremely capable hand in gunfights or car chases but a gawky schoolboy when it comes to romantic relations. Still, there’s just not enough “Yippee-ki-yay” to “Red.” The heroes may be retirees, but that doesn’t mean they can’t go about the spy game with a little more youthful abandon.

he opening minutes of “Conviction” mislead you into expecting a bland, bythe-numbers drama. The sensitive piano theme and a close-up of a Bible conspire to exonerate the convicted murderer (played by Sam Rockwell) even before the story gets going. Then, little by little, performance by performance, director Tony Goldwyn’s factbased rouser develops into something fresh and fully inhabited. This is an inspirational true story worried less about turning dramatic screws than earning its feeling through character. Top-billed Hilary Swank, who signed on as executive producer after reading Pamela Gray’s script, is almost too right for the role of Betty Anne Waters, the valiant working-class heroine of the

piece. A high school dropout and single mother of two, Waters spent her childhood in various foster homes, often apart from her brother, Kenny. The grisly, wordless opening credits take us to 1980, by which time the Waters siblings are adults. Gray’s script covers several decades of the Waters’ rough lives with ease. Which brings us back to Swank. There are times, in some of her inferior films, when the two-time Oscarwinner’s toothsome, whole-

hearted sincerity becomes a single note plunked over and over. Not here. Her character’s determination is a given, but Swank finds her way into the role easily, without calculation. Rockwell has the flashier part, but Kenny’s situation behind bars, stuck, rotting, brings a depth of emotion out of Rockwell’s considerable technique.

As a big, if not especially bad, Wolff, I’ve always had a remarkablysoftspotforthetormentorof the three little pigs. Let’s look at them in action here, where each oneofthemdeclaressixheartson thechallengingtrumplead.Little piggynumberonewinsthetrump in dummy, leads to his diamond ace, ruffs a diamond, and crosses totheclubacetoruffaseconddiamond, then leads a second club. He is more hurt than surprised when East ruffs in and cashes his spade ace for down one. Little piggy number two exerts a trifle more diligence. He wins the trump lead, takes his diamond ace, ruffs a diamond and crosses back to hand with a top clubtoruffaseconddiamond.So far so good, but now, after cashing dummy’s top trump, he leads a low spade from the board, and East steels himself to duck the trick. West wins his spade eight andreturnsaclub.Eastruffs,and there is no joy in Pigville. The third little piggy is made of sterner stuff. Again, play starts with a trump lead won in dummy. Declarer cashes both top diamonds, ruffs a diamond low, then crosses to hand with a club to ruff a second diamond.

What was the first single by The Beatles that Lennon co-wrote with Paul McCartney? 5. On the cover of “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band,” what instrument is Lennon holding? 6.

DEAR ABBY a tsunami of responses to my question, “Does height really matter?” Here’s another one: DEAR ABBY: My husband and I are both 5 feet 6 inches. In the past, I was concerned that we didn’t fit the stereotype of the man being taller than the woman, but it has actually worked out great. I never have to stand on my toes! “Kal” eventually will find a woman who appreciates him for the breadth of his heart and not the length of his body. — SEEING EYE TO EYE IN ILLINOIS

EAR ABBY: Regarding the letter from “Lost in the Land of Aloha” and whether short men are less desirable, height is relative. I am 5 feet 3 inches and dated taller men because those were the guys who just were around and seemed to be attracted to me. Then I met my husband. He’s 5 feet 6 inches and absolutely wonderful. He’s kind, loving, showers me with affection, offers me understanding and is a fantastic father. He cooks, washes dishes, does laundry and actually picks things up off the floor instead of vacuuming around them. I am the luckiest woman on this planet. Never pass up a short guy. They’re not short, they’re fun-sized! — VERY, VERY HAPPY WIFE IN TEXAS DEAR WIFE: I received
