Conundrum

Dining at Mosaic Cafe was a conundrum because one advantage to operating a catering business is the practice you have with your core recipes. Yet this is where we found the greatest weakness at the time of our visit. The vitality of the dishes were lackluster, and what read as vibrant flavor profiles were executed with bland outcomes. Our server was friendly and apologetic for some delays that the service of a large party required. She was well-informed about the ingredients of each dish and easily negotiated the menuspeak of “wild caught salmon patty,” “russet crusted salmon” and “roller.”

ormandy Farm Artisan Bakery is celebrated for its bread. And with good cause. The loaves are baked fresh every day from locations in Charleston and on Johns Island, ranging from baguettes and brioche to sea salt and herb Panini. Also, Normandy Farm never uses preservatives. That’s a win, kids. But best, Normandy Farm makes good on its advantage, using its bread to anchor its sandwiches, which are refrigerated and grilled upon order. Take the prosciutto and brie, formed with fresh basil leaves and feta artichoke aioli, and set between slices of mild,

sea salt panini, a fragrant French dough finished with olive oil, salt and herbs. Also containing a garlicky feta artichoke aioli, the sandwich is layered with provolone cheese and a trio of meats: Genoa salami, hot capicola and peppered ham. Conversely, and to satisfy all comers, Normandy Farm makes a veggie sandwich with tomatoes, hummus, roasted red peppers, baby spinach and alfalfa sprouts aboard multigrain. Then the country-style rye combines a sourdough leaven and caraway seeds for a hardy loaf, and proper bedding for a dill tuna spread mixed with red onions, celery, relish, tomatoes and cheddar cheese. Other breads include orange rosemary semolina, the

French boule and fougasse, sort of a French version of Italian flatbread. And with pastries, desserts and eight varieties of bagels available in cute, family-friendly quarters, Normandy Farm is much more than just a lunch spot.

ive music always has been a passion of mine. The experience of being in a room with other people and enjoying an intangible product always has mesmerized me. From my first concert seeing Meatloaf to hanging out at Surf Bar for a jam session with local musicians, I’ve always felt an unspoken bond with the performers and relish the opportunity to live vicariously through them and their music. A common excuse for people who do not attend local music events is that their

professional and family responsibilities get in the way. Lucky for us, the Charleston music community has you, your family and your wallets covered. The following are three of my favorite family-friendly and free ways to see live music. No more excuses. I hope to see you there.

The Pour House

Where: 1977 Maybank Highway. When: 6-9 p.m. MondayFriday. Web: www.charlestonpour house.com. The Pour House has become one of the home bases for top local talent. You can see any number of musicians play daily and for free on the deck. Sit at the bar or on one of the benches around a tree. Hang with an eclectic mix of Charleston music lovers who congregate for music representing all genres and talent levels.

Pets and children are encouraged and the area is enclosed for their safety. The music is free and the food from El Bohio next door is served on the deck.

Awendaw Green Barn Jams Where: 4879 U.S. Highway 17. When: 6-10 p.m. Wednesdays. Web: www.awendawgreen. com. The drive down U.S. Highway 17, about 10 miles past Towne Centre, doesn’t take too long after rush-hour traffic and is well worth it. Located at the Sewee Outpost, the brainchild of Eddie White has grown from an outlet for up-and-coming local musicians to a destination for national touring acts. See performers from major festivals as well as bands that are just passing through on tour. The Barn Jams have caught

the attention of everyone from Chris Robinson of The Black Crows to area political leaders. Run completely by volunteers and donations, a hat is passed around at the end of the night to support the entertainers.

Sound check at |The Windjammer Where: 1008 Ocean Blvd.,

Isle of Palms. When: Happens before each concert. Web: www.windjammer iop.com. You don’t always have to be an insider to see a band warm up. At the Windjammer, sound check is always open to the public. Swing by with the family for a Jammer-Burger and get

a free and intimate performance from some of your favorite bands. I’ve seen Cracker play for an hour after the sound check. And many artists stick around to shake hands and kiss babies with their unexpected fans, as well as surf with Donovan Frankenreiter or discuss music theory with J.J. Grey.

session in Nashville. After 10 months in the hospital and undergoing physical therapy, Hoge made a full recovery and resumed work on his 2009 album, appropriately titled “The Wreckage.” The album yielded one of Hoge’s biggest hits to date with the Petty-esque single “Even If It Breaks Your Heart.” Hoge’s latest studio album, “Number Seven,” is due out at the end of September. Will Hoge will perform Friday and Saturday at The Windjammer, 1008 Ocean Blvd., with MyNameIsJohnMichael.

The Chickasaw Mudd Puppies Sunday at Fiery Ron’s Home Team BBQ Brent Slay and Ben Reynolds started as a duo in the budding, early ’90s Athens, Ga., scene calling themselves The Chickasaw Mudd Puppies and playing an eclectic style of music now

referred to as “swamp rock” or “bog ‘n’ roll.” The duo caught the attention of fellow Athens musician and R.E.M. frontman Michael Stipe, who introduced them to legendary musician and songwriter Willie Dixon. Dixon’s songs have been covered by artists such as Led Zeppelin, Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, Queen, The Doors, Jimi Hendrix and more. The band’s use of cans and the stomp board, an instrument invented by Slay, made them one of the most inventive and authentic Americana bands of that time. Proving to be too authentic for its own good, The Puppies’ music failed to catch on commercially, and the duo split in ’92. The duo returned some years later with former Beggar Weeds drummer Lumpy Weed to pick up where it left off all those years ago. The Chickasaw Mudd Puppies will perform with Burning Angles Sunday at Fiery Ron’s Home Team BBQ, 2209 Middle St., Sullivan’s Island. Tickets are $5 at the door.

Opening on Saturday night will be The Jonathan Scales Fourchestra. Sunday night’s opener will be The Giving Tree Band. Both days will feature live music outside on the deck until the main shows. “We’re really excited. This is one of those events that we look at on our touring calendar and have looked forward to for a long time,” said Drew Heller, who plays guitar, piano and fiddle with Toubab Krewe. “Just being in Charleston with friends at the Pour House, but specifically this celebration. It’s a different kind of experience than your average weekend party.” Heller and bandmates Justin Perkins (kora, kamelengoni, guitar, percussion), Teal Brown (drums, congas), David Pransky (bass, guitar) and Luke Quaranta (djembe, percussion) describe their sound as “international country music,” which is, at its soul, a Creole hybrid of rock, psychedelic and African drumming. This is the second consecutive year that the Asheville-based band will have headlined the Pour House’s anniversary party. “Basically its one of the best, most festive of any environments of any club of anywhere we’ve played in the country,” said Heller. “It feels close there; you feel

MUPPETS: THE GREEN ALBUM

(Walt Disney Records) Tribute albums are nothing new, but “Muppets: The Green Album” just might be one of the more well-executed ones in recent memory. Obviously meant to coincide with the release of the new Muppet movie later this year, the CD features songs from both past Muppet films and the popular syndicated “Muppet Show” from the 1970s covered by an assortment of contemporary performers. It sounds silly, but the truth is that the music written for the Muppets in their heyday was topnotch, from the “Muppet Show Theme,” performed here by indie rock darlings OK Go, to the Oscar-nominated “Rainbow Connection” from the original “Muppet Movie,” covered on the CD by Weezer and Hayley Williams. Muppet fans will find plenty to love here, including what some might call deep cuts from the Muppets archives. Definitely notable is the beautiful job My Morning Jacket does on “Our World,” a song from “Emmet Otter’s Jug-Band Christmas,” which Muppets creator Jim Henson adapted from a popular children’s book in 1977. Other artists participating include The Fray, Alkaline Trio, The Airborne Toxic Event, Andrew Bird and Rachael Yamagata. It’s a loving tribute to a dozen songs that Gen-Xers grew up loving, and it’s obvious that the bands covering the tunes share that love. KEY TRACKS: “Rainbow Connection,” “Movin’ Right Along,” “Our World.”

Various Artists

REGGAE’S GONE COUNTRY (VP Records) It has often been said that you can put any song to a reggae beat and make it work. For the most part, that’s true. The easygoing, rhythmic style of music that originated in Jamaica in the early ’60s has been used in the past to rework songs by everyone from The Beatles to Radiohead. Every time I hear about yet another pop or rock song being covered as a reggae song, I get the feeling that this time will be the time that theory falls apart, but so far it always works. That theory really gets put to the test on “Reggae’s Gone Country,” which, as the title might hint at, takes 13 classic country songs and injects a bit of the islands into them. You don’t think it’s going to work. Heck, it really shouldn’t work, but it does. Romain Virgo collaborates with Larry Gatlin (the sole classic country artist on the CD) for “California.” And from there, the hits just keep coming, just with a reggae beat. Highlights include Richie Stevens’ take on “Wolverton Mountain,” Etana doing justice to the Patsy Cline classic “Crazy,” Freddie McGregor channeling Roger Miller on “King of the Road,” and L.U.S.T owning the Statler Brothers’ “Flowers On the Wall.” The two best tracks come near the end though. I don’t know how Marty Robbins would feel about Sanchez’s cover of “El Paso,” but I was impressed. The final track, Kenny Rogers’ “The Gambler,” gets an auto-tune infused update, courtesy of Busy Signal. This CD isn’t likely to change the face of music as we know it, but it is a lot of fun. KEY TRACKS: “Crazy,” “El Paso,” “The Gambler.”

Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks

MIRROR TRAFFIC (Matador) When the alt-rock band Pavement broke up in 1999, lead singer Stephen Malkmus wasted no time in forming a new band, the Jicks. While there was definitely some of the same musical ideas in the Jicks that made Pavement’s music so appealing, for the most part Malkmus’s new band was much more radio friendly, not that the Jicks received any more airplay than Pavement. The Jicks released four generally well-received albums before Pavement reunited for a successful tour last year. Now, with that walk down ’90s indie rock memory lane complete, Malkmus has returned to making music with the Jicks. The band’s latest effort, “Mirror Traffic,” features Malkmus’s familiar stream-ofconsciousness lyrics sung over churning guitars. As with previous Jicks releases, if you are into Malkmus’s style of songwriting, then “Mirror Traffic” is very likely to make your musical week. Thanks to the inclusion of Beck as the album’s producer, “Mirror Traffic” is actually the best album Malkmus has presented since the breakup of Pavement. The songs are more fully realized here than on the last couple of Jicks albums. Standout tracks include “Tigers,” “No One Is (As I Are Be),” and especially “Spazz,” which will really make you miss Pavement from the first few lyrics. “Mirror Traffic” demonstrates that it is still possible to make wildly original music that, while certainly sounding experimental, is still pleasing to the ear. KEY TRACKS: “Tigers,” “No One Is (As I Are Be),” “Spazz.”

Mark T. Small BLACKS, WHITES & THE BLUES (Lead Foot) It is just a guess on my part, but if I were to venture as to what blues artist Mark T. Small’s favorite Woody Allen film was, it would probably be “Zelig.” In that 1983 movie, Allen plays the title character, Leonard Zelig, who has the ability to change his appearance to mimic the people who are around him. Small started to listen to old-time music while still in his teens, and learned acoustic guitar and Dobro while listening to the fiddle tunes of Doc Watson and Norman Blake. Exposure to the harmonica mastery of Charlie Musselwhite and Junior Wells drove Small to become proficient on the blues harp, while artists such as Johnny Winter and Albert King made him pick up electric guitar. As a result of all of this exposure and mimicking, Small started his own blues band in the ’80s and played primarily electric blues before gravitating back to acoustic music at the start of the new millennium. “Blacks, Whites & The Blues,” Small’s third solo effort, focuses on that acoustic sound, as well as on music that was popular from the late 1800’s to the 1950’s. The songs featured on the CD come from some of the blue’s brightest stars, including Muddy Waters (“Trouble No More”), Willie Dixon (“Little Red Rooster”) and Robert Johnson (“Sweet Home Chicago”). Some of the better tracks on this overall solid album include “Hesitation Blues,” “A Georgia Camp Meeting” and a scorching treatment of John Lee Hooker’s “Bang Bang Bang Bang.” For fans of old-time blues, this is the real thing from a guy who came up listening to and absorbing all the right stuff. KEY TRACKS: “Hesitation Blues,” “A Georgia Camp Meeting,” “Bang Bang Bang Bang.”

Muppets, vampires, real stories lead fall film lineup BY DAVID GERMAIN AP Movie Writer

OS ANGELES — Brad Pitt reinvents baseball, while Kristen Stewart acquires a taste for blood. George Clooney runs for president, while Meryl Streep impersonates Margaret Thatcher. Leonardo DiCaprio puts America under surveillance, while Robert Downey Jr. faces a criminal mastermind. Variety abounds in Hollywood’s fall and holiday seasons as studios pack the schedule with Oscar hopefuls, action flicks, comedy and music-themed tales, as well as a family lineup that brings the return of the Muppets, dancing penguins, Alvin and the Chipmunks, and Puss in Boots. Downey’s back in “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows” as the great detective and his ally Watson (Jude Law) meet archenemy Professor Moriarty. Clooney directs and stars as a White House aspirant in “The Ides of March,” with Ryan Gosling as an aide who stumbles onto disturbing campaign secrets.

seeks to add to her record 16 Oscar acting nominations, playing the British prime minister in “The Iron Lady”; Pitt takes over the Oakland A’s front office as pioneering baseball strategist Billy Beane in “Moneyball”; and DiCaprio takes on the sweeping life of FBI boss J. Edgar Hoover in “J. Edgar,” directed by Clint Eastwood. The film spans decades, covering the bureau’s successes taking down gangsters in the 1930s, Hoover’s paranoia about communists and civil rights leaders, and questions about his sexual preferences. “He was surrounded in mystery. I’d always heard a lot about rumors of his sexuality, the cross-dressing, but more than that, the man had absolute power when it came to forming the bureau of investigation and its influence over the government,” DiCaprio said. “He was pretty much a historical figure that wasn’t to be messed with.” In “Moneyball,” Pitt’s Beane takes over the A’s and builds one of baseball’s most cost-effective teams through “sabermetrics,” a statistical analysis that broke with conventional Major League scouting by identifying undervalued players. “It’s tough, tough material in a sense of how do you make a dramatic film out of sabermetrics? But there is a story of going up against a system,” Pitt said. “If we hadn’t been doing it this way for so long, is this the way we’d begin if we were starting today? Like our use of oil. You could ask the same question if the automobile was being invented today. Would we really be going oil?” Hollywood is giving a fresh start to familiar titles and characters.

Directed by Steven Soderbergh, “Contagion” has an all-star ensemble led by Matt Damon, Kate Winslet, Gwyneth Paltrow, Laurence Fishburne, Marion Cotillard and Jude Law.

Artists work on Pour House September art walk jumpstarts weekend

BY DENISE K. JAMES

Special to The Post and Courier

You can always find space for great art, and Pour House owners Alex and Vanessa Harris have decided that the James Island Pour House/El Bohio building is the perfect place to show off Lowcountry talent. A mural-painting event runs through Labor Day weekend, with about 12 artists participating. “It all started as just an idea we had to make the outside of the building look more colorful and inviting,” says Alex Harris. “We also know a lot of people who paint, and we have a lot of space around us. It just seemed like the thing to do.” The building has been divided into spaces, with each of the 12 artists claiming one portion to paint. Artists were allotted a week to work, from Monday to Sunday, and the Pour House will host parties Saturday and Sunday to celebrate the paintings, as well as the restaurant’s ninth anniversary. “We’ll be open at 2 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday,” says Harris. While there are no strict regulations for the painters, Harris hopes that the art will reflect what the Pour House

is about. “Our motto here at the Pour House is ‘Love live music,’ so I hope that the paintings will reflect our love of music in some way,” he says. “There’s also a possibility that we’ll do this again next year, and have new artists paint new stuff over it.” As for the competition part, after each of the artists completes a mural, the public will be given the chance to vote for the finalists starting Sunday and continuing through the next week. The winner will receive the $500 grand prize, and the runner-up will receive $200. The second runner-up will receive a Pour House bar tab worth $100. Artists participating include Charleston painters Angela Chvarak, Sheepman, Ishmael and Tina Christophillis. There’s also plenty of live music during the event. “We’re encouraging the artists to paint between the hours of 11 a.m. and 11 p.m. over the weekend,” he says. “They were able to start early, but there will definitely be live painting during the event,” Harris says. “We plan to have familyfriendly activities like facepainting, games and craft vendors. We’re hoping to have a lot of traffic.”

‘New Age Nouveau’

BY OLIVIA POOL

A

h, September. There’s a possibility that means slightly cooler weather, or more hurricanes and hurricane parties. None of those things are for certain, but the art scene here definitely will keep you twirling. Check out the First Fridays on Broad art walk to jumpstart your weekend. Unless otherwise noted, all opening receptions are 5-8 p.m. Friday and are free and open to the public.

‘Bird’s Eye View’

If only you were a bird. Well, in Wanda Steppe’s upcoming solo show, “Bird’s Eye View,” you’re asked to be one. Martin Gallery director Kit Porter explains, “The viewer is asked to approach each painting in the collection from the perspective of a bird, and sometimes the point of view of a bird.” A bird’s-eye view is typically an elevated view, a different perspective, if you will. Having gone through intense chemotheraphy, Steppe was unable to paint for a long time, as the smell made her feel worse. When she was finally was able to get back in the studio, she found she was much more interested in painting “imaginary landscapes that were metaphors for the passage of time. When I

“Phoebe” by Wanda Steppe will be on display at the Martin Gallery, 18 Broad St. began the landscape series, they were simply about the metamorphic effects of time and the elements, but as I healed, they became more about emotional healing and spiritual freedom,” said the artist. The final works in the series are contemplations on the fragility and uncertainty of the physical world and the nature of spirituality. The Martin Gallery is at 18 Broad St. Call 723-7378 or visit www.martingallerycharleston.com.

‘Strength and Grace’

Painter Michelle Dunaway’s figurative works sometimes make the viewer feel like they are getting

a glimpse of someone’s quiet personal moment of thought. Typically romantic in nature, the title “Strength and Grace” is appropriate for this upcoming show at the M Gallery. Carlen Quinn of the M Gallery explains it best: Dunaway believes that every aspect of creation contains a balance of strength and grace. Strength, according to Dunaway, is that which we are able to bring about through our determination and perseverance, while grace takes care of whatever is beyond our control. The show will include about 23 pieces, ranging from smaller alla prima studies and drawings to

Whet your appetite.

“Women are a gift,” says painter Jeffrey Louis Fitzharris, whose work has been compared to Alphonse Mucha and Gustav Klimt. True enough, the artist fell in love with Mucha at age 7, when a kind librarian guided him to the arts section of the library. It’s been a love affair ever since. Fitzharris now specializes in portrait paintings done in this style. Among his list of clients are Sylvester Stallone, Joanna and Sidney Poitier, Sumner Redstone and Paul Reiser. Fitzharris explains his “New Age Nouveau” signature style as “honoring” the masters of Art Nouveau in the rendering of his artwork, just as those artists painting with an impressionistic style “honor” the masters of Impressionism. See it at Mary Martin Gallery, 39 Broad St. Call 723-0303 or visit www. marymartinart.com.

‘My Eyes’ Mind’

Deidre Black will be showing her newest works in oil, called “My Eyes’ Mind,” at the Ellis-Nicholson Gallery. Even though her paintings are inspired by the Lowcountry, the gallery and artist say they are not about the Lowcountry. “They are about the stacks and layers of color, shape and motion contained within nature’s already finished works of art,” Black said. Visit the gallery at 1½ Broad St. Call 722-5353 or visit www.ellis-nicholsongallery.com.

“Eternal Life” by J.B. Boyd.

Q&A with local artist J.B. Boyd

BY VIKKI MATSIS

Special to The Post and Courier

J

.B. Boyd creates art on a small scale. The panels that he paints can stretch as long as 6 feet and go as tall as just 3 inches. He has been painting for 16 years but only started doing art full time in 2005. Boyd makes his paintings with birch panels. He takes photographs of landscapes and does a photo transfer with hours of detailed painting and erasing. The final product is a photorealistic panel that captures the place Boyd had envisioned painting. Boyd is represented by Robert Lange Studios, 2 Queen St., and is having an opening reception for his show, “Solo,” 5-8 p.m. Friday. The show will be on display until Sept. 26. Visit www.jbboyd.net and www. robertlangestudios.com for more information. Q: Where do you call

J.B. Boyd home? A: Wherever my dog is, or descending into JFK (John F. Kennedy) International Airport. Q: What is the first thing you do in the morning? A: Coffee, cigarette and the Atlantic tropical weather outlook online in the hammock. Q: What do you love to do? A: Try to get lost exploring, and when I actually succeed, find my way back. Q: What do you daydream about? A: Techniques for painting stars at night. Q: Where does your inspiration come from?

A: Those small, yet spectacular, moments of breathtaking beauty buried in every day. Q: What are you most grateful for? A: My amazing and entertaining friends. Q: What is your worst fear? A: Not knowing where my next month’s rent is coming from. Q: If you could ask the president one thing, what would it be? A: What is the most important thing that you know you can’t change because of political considerations, but that you would change anyway whether or not possible? Q: Herbivore or carnivore? A: Herbivore! Q: What are your thoughts on television? A: One endless, minddraining commercial, but quite enjoyable in seasonal box-set form. Q: How does your family describe you? A: One of a kind (sometimes a sideways compliment in an Irish-Catholic family). Q: What is the price range of your artwork? A: $200 to $975 for framed prints, $1,000 to $15,000 for

original oil paintings. Q: What is your main goal for the year? A: To paint, paint, paint! Q: What do you think the world needs? A: A lot more compassion, understanding and education. Q: Where do you frequent most? A: The old Coast Guard dock off Waterfront Park with a warm bag of Fast & French sandwiches.

ACE’S ON BRIDGE

By BOBBY WOLFF

There are plenty of excellent bridge players who claim never to have read a textbook. Personally, though, I find that articles andbooksdohelpmeplaybetter. I learned basic technique — not to mention some of the more complex plays — by reading up on them. However, one of the most obscure combinations you will ever see is featured in this deal’s spade suit, and I had never seenitreproducedinabookuntil very recently. Theremightbesomethingtobe said for playing six clubs today, but six no-trump looks like the normal spot. How should you develop tricks in spades? The answeristorunthespadequeen! If the suit is 3-3, it is a blind guess which finesse to take. But if the

suit is 4-2, your spade intermediates will let you pick up three of the four honor-doubletons by leading the queen. No other play caters to that. It is only fitting that when this combination came up in the Cavendish tournament a few years ago, it was Fred Gitelman, author of “BridgeMaster,” which features this precise combination, who was at the helm in six no-trump. He made the right play and was rewarded when the cards cooperated. Just for the record: if you did not have the spade eight, your best play would be to lead low to the10.Thisgivesyoua50percent chanceagainstthe3-3breaksand also picks up either doubleton honor in East.

Torn between ex, new man

D

Back to the gridiron BY REBEKAH BRADFORD

Special to The Post and Courier

F

ollowing a scandal-filled off-season, most college football fans are ready to get back to the basics: tailgating, rivalries and just plain old football. The kick-off to the season is today when many schools have their first games, so this week’s trivia is all about the Southeastern Conference. Last week’s winner, Ryan Galloway, is going up against Joel Luedecking, who works as a medical assistant. FILE/TRACY GLANTZ/THE STATE

South Carolina Gamecocks running back Marcus Lattimore (21) breaks free from defenders for a first down during the SEC championship game against Auburn at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta last year.

EAR ABBY: I am 19 and have a 10month-old daughter. Her dad and I broke up five months ago because we were fighting a lot, most of it caused by him. I have been dating a new guy, “Ron,” for three months. My baby’s dad has been trying to convince me he has changed, and he wants me to take him back. I still have feelings for him, but I’m in love with Ron. I don’t want to lose what I have for a shot in the dark, but what if my ex really has changed? The relationship with Ron is long-distance. As much as I’d love it to work, I don’t know how to deal with the distance. — YOUNG MOM IN FLORIDA DEAR YOUNG MOM: If you were in love with your baby’s father, you wouldn’t have fallen in love with Ron

DEAR ABBY so fast. If you were in love with Ron, you wouldn’t be debating whether to reunite with your ex. The way adults deal with extended separations from the people they love is to stay busy. They work, take classes, volunteer their extra time to causes they believe in. They do not bounce like tennis balls from romance to romance. And if they have a 10-month-old, they devote their attention to helping their little one go from a crawl to a walk. Write www.dearabby.com.

QUESTIONS 1. What school has tailgating in The Grove? 2. What team has its own flotilla at its home games? 3. What year did the SEC first play a conference football schedule? 4. At which school do they “Roll Toomer’s Corner?” 5. How many different U.S. states are the 12 SEC members from? 6. What two teams play in the World’s Largest Cocktail Party? 7. Prior to each home game, which school has a March Down the Hill? 8. Name the two schools that play in “The 90-Mile Drive.” 9. What team plays its home games at “The Swamp?” 10. Name the school that has a “Tiger Burn” during rivalry week.

RYAN’S ANSWERS

JOEL’S ANSWERS

1. Ole Miss! 2. Pretty sure it’s Tennessee. 3. Oh, tough one. 1952. 4. Auburn. 5. I think it might be 10. 6. Georgia and Florida. 7. Not sure. Vanderbilt? 8. Alabama and MSU (that’s Mississippi not Michigan). 9. Florida Gators. 10. Carolina.

It’s also a great time for art events. Organizations will start presenting new productions and shows. Can’t wait.

Art show in North Charleston

5-7 P.M. TONIGHT // CHARLESTON AREA CONVENTION CENTER Faye Sullivan and Ginny Versteegen are two friends who have a great deal in common. The both retired from teaching art and came to settle in Mount Pleasant, immediately falling in love with the Lowcountry scenery. Now, they are both working as professional artists here in Charleston and are active in the Charleston Artist Guild, Mount Pleasant Artist Guild and the Community of I’On Artists in Mount Pleasant. Sullivan and Versteegen are excited to be having a show together at the North Charleston City Gallery. Sullivan’s newest collection of oil paintings is titled “Reflections,” and Versteegen’s is named “Journeys.” Although they often paint together, they have maintained and developed their own styles. The artists will be showing throughout this month, with an opening reception tonight.

Special to The Post and Courier

Local designer Jamie Lin Snider opens her first boutique on King Street this week. As a fellow 25-year-old, I’m impressed. The store is at 539 King St. and is aptly named JLINSNIDER. Snider is hoping to add even more creative energy to the upper portion of the street that’s sprouting upscale burger joints and intimate cocktail bars. Snider will sell her own line and two lines that she describes as “boho chic”: Gypsy Junkies and, coming in late September, American Gold. She’ll also welcome designs from local Michael Wiernicki, a crowd favorite from this year’s Charleston Fashion Week Emerging Designer Competition. One dress of Wiernicki’s made Snider want to carry his line. “There’s a shortsleeve white dress, and it has a print down the front. That’s an incredible dress. I have to have it, and if I have to have it, I feel like other people need it, too.” The back half of the store

is dedicated to vintage finds. Tan boots, flowing dresses and pieces that can double as a top with leggings or a risky dress. She says, “I get it all from L.A., New York, Las Vegas, in thrift stores and flea markets. I lived out in Vegas for a while, and the ladies out there pull all the good stuff for me: Valentino, Versace, Dior. The designer vintage you’re not going to see again.” JLINSNIDER also will sell a spa line that Snider created with her sister and brotherin-law, who is a “Master Herbalist.” In 2010, Snider was part of the CFW Emerging Designer Competition. In 2011, she was a featured designer. Of the process she says, “Emerging designer is more like designing for a client Please see SHOP, Page 7E

Director Gilles PaquetBrenner, working from Tatiana de Rosnay’s novel, balances Julia’s morbid curiosity in the present with the terror of those events as they happened in the past. And as “Sarah’s Key” progresses, we, like Julia, feel the urgency of back-then forcing its way into our present day. What happened to this girl and her little brother, and will Julia or we ever discover the truth? Little Sarah was just 10 when the police came to grab her family. She pushed her baby brother, Michel,

into a hidden closet and told him to wait for her, then locked the door as she and her family were taken off. Her parents fear for their own lives. “Think only of yourself, only yourself.” The movie is by alternating turns breathless and grimly reflective. Sarah tries to give others escaping from the velodrome the key and, failing that, makes her own attempt. She turns feverish and recovers only to realize she still has a mission, and time is surely running out. The viewer frets that the child will be too late, or worse — that she

ere’s an unconventional French Holocaust drama, a film that plays as a guilty remembrance of a dark corner of French history tucked into a ticking clock thriller. “Sarah’s Key” stars Kristin Scott Thomas as Julia, a modern-day American journalist investigating the mass deportation of Jews from the Marais neighborhood of Paris in 1942. Some 13,000 French men, women and children were rounded up over two days and stuffed into the Velodrome d’Hiver, an indoor bicycle race track, kept there under cruel and inhumane conditions and then shipped off to concentration camps. And the entire shameful event was orchestrated and carried out by the French themselves. Julia, who has married a Frenchman and has a teenage daughter, is consumed with this story — tracking down survivors. But with every new clue, she seems to connect this tragedy to herself — her husband’s family, their modern day

‘The Debt’ pays off

BY ROGER MOORE The Orlando Sentinel

‘T

he Debt” is the first movie in which Hollywood “It” actor Sam Worthington gets around to showing us what all the fuss was about, pre”Terminator,” pre-“Avatar” and pre-“Clash of the Titans.” As a guilt-ridden Holocaust survivor-turnedMossad agent determined to bring a war criminal to Israeli justice, Worthington suggests vulnerability, compassion and layers of character that none of his action blockbusters allowed him to. “The Debt,” a very good 2007 Israeli thriller with Cold War and Holocaust connections, earns a nervewracking and entertaining Hollywood remake. As in the original film, the new John (“Shakespeare in Love”) Madden version has two settings: Germany in 1965, Israel in 1997. We see Israeli spies attempt to kidnap a man they identified as a Nazi concentration camp doctor in the mid’60s, and we see the Mossad agents who carried out that mission deal with its consequences 30 years later. “The Surgeon of Birkenau” (Jesper Christensen) was working under an assumed name as a gynecologist. That’s why Rachel (Jessica Chastain) was part of that 1960s team. New to espionage, she had to climb into the stirrups and set the trap for this man they wanted to take back to Israel for trial. “I want the world to watch,” the idealistic David (Worthington) says. “I want them to know what he did.” Stephan (Marton Csokas) is the leader of the team, less interested in ideology than the mission. We see them prepare for it in a dumpy Berlin apartment and memorize their

Where did you come from?” Chastain, of “The Help” and “The Tree of Life,” is superb at suggesting the horror and revulsion she must hide. She has seen the photos of the “Surgeon’s” cruel handiwork. But things went wrong with the kidnapping, as we know from the film’s present-day framework. Rachel (Helen Mirren), David (Ciaran Hinds) and Stephan (Tom Wilkinson) have been feted as heroes for decades. Rachel wears a facial scar from that mission, and her daughter has just immortalized her in a book. Madden’s film shows us the “official” version of those events, and then spends an

hour in a flashback showing what really happened and how the modern-day trio are dealing with that. Csokas does the best job of back-engineering his performance. He brilliantly mimics the Oscar-winning Wilkinson’s intonations and timbre, even as he sings (Stefan bangs at an old piano in the apartment). Worthington and Hinds mesh nicely, too. Mirren and Chastain suggest the same humanity and flintiness. Christensen suggests cunning, a mastery of the mind games it might take to set him free. It’s a tricky film to maintain suspense in, and Madden and his screenwriters do their best to keep us in the dark. What really dazzles here are the action beats: the getaway gone wrong, the shocking moments of violence.
