Paddleboard race to raise money for conservancy

C

ompetitive stand-up paddleboarders once again will converge on Shem Creek in Mount Pleasant Sunday for the second annual Golden Nugget SUP Race, which raises money for the Mount Pleasant Land Conservancy. The event, hosted by HalfMoon Outfitters, will start at 3 p.m. Sunday at the Shem Creek boat landing and feature a recreational 5K and an elite 10K. Participants in the 5K must use boards that are 12 feet, 6 inches or shorter, while those in the 10K can use boards that are 14 feet or shorter. Golden Nugget has a total purse of $5,000. Late registration and packet pickup is 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Friday and Saturday at HalfMoon on Coleman Boulevard in Mount Pleasant. The fee is $40 on Friday and $50 on Saturday. Registration also will be available online at http://go-greenevents. com/event/id/416 until 3 p.m. Saturday. Racers will receive complimentary access to the event’s “Paddle ‘n’ Party” after party, which is $25 for people who do not race. All of the proceeds from the race will be donated to the Mount Pleasant Land Conservancy. www.halfmoonoutfitters. com.

Tour de Tomato at 9 a.m. Sunday on the West Ashley Greenway. Tom Bradford of Charleston Moves describes the tour, an easy bike or walk on the greenway, as “the celebration of human-powered mobility and the promise of even better biking and walking facilities in the greater Charleston area.” Registration is $20 for adults at Earth Fare, starting at 8:30 a.m. Children 12 and under free (limit two per adult.) The event is followed by a party featuring pizza from Earth Fare and beer from Palmetto Brewery. www.charlestonmoves. org.

Race for the Cure The 18th annual Susan G. Komen Lowcountry Race for the Cure will be Saturday morning on Daniel Island. Because organizers are aiming at drawing 12,000 people this year, participants are urged to get registered before Saturday morning and to ride shuttle buses from two locations, Tanger Outlet Center in North Charleston and Mount Pleasant Towne Centre, on Saturday morning. Buses start running at 6:15 a.m. The Survivor Celebration starts at 8 a.m. The one-mile fun run and walk will start at 8:30 a.m. with the timed run at 9:10 a.m. Participants are urged to arrive early and to not bring pets.

mals is an annual event that takes place in 35 cities across the United States and Canada to raise funds for Farm Sanctuary, which has shelters in Upstate New York and northern California. The walk in Charleston is the only one listed for South Carolina and is getting support from Miss South Carolina United States Valarie Kobrovsky. “I’m participating because Farm Sanctuary is a leader in changing the way society views and treats farm animals, and I’m thrilled to bring their message of

compassion to Charleston,” says Kobrovsky. “This year’s walk features a raffle for items and services donated by local businesses, live music, key animal welfare speakers, a yoga stretch before the walk, free vegan food and games for families and children.” Early registration is $15 for adults, $5 for teens and free for children under 12.

there are more faith-based films these days in part because religious people are eager to invest in them. Rich Peluso, vice president of Affirm Films, the Sony Pictures division that acquires faith-based and inspirational films, said some in Hollywood still think that the audience for religiousthemed movies is limited to the Midwest and South. “The reality is that the Christian population in Los Angeles, based on pure population size, is one of the largest populations of Christians in the country,” he said. “In Seattle and Portland, we do extremely well with the faith-based populations there.

oes are tapping, feet are shuffling and boots are bouncing in the opening to the new ” Footloose.” Kids are dancing and frolicking, maybe even having a few beers to the title song of a 1984 movie, a tune by Kenny Loggins. Then tragedy strikes. And Bomont becomes the town that banned organized dances. The preacher preaches this from his pulpit, the town council goes along and the local cops enforce it. But time passes, and it’s up to the dance-crazy new kid, Ren, to tame the local wild child preacher’s daughter, Ariel, and to get Bomont back on its dancing feet. If there is a movie more familiar to multiple generations than “Footloose,” chances are it has hills covered in edelweiss or Atlanta burning down. You tamper with a formula and a story this beloved, you do it at your own peril. Even if the original movie wasn’t anybody’s idea of high art. But Craig Brewer, the director of “Hustle & Flow,” resets that Kevin Bacon/ Lori Singer/John Lithgow Midwestern hit in the rural South. He swaps a game of tractor chicken with a figure-eight school bus crasho-rama and ingeniously

Kenny Wormald plays Ren and Julianne Hough plays Ariel in “Footloose,” adds singing 10-year-olds to the show-stopper “Let’s Hear It for the Boy.” He gave the film a little Southern hip-hop, and brought in real Southerners Dennis Quaid, Andie MacDowell and Ray McKinnon to further Southernize it. Suddenly, it makes

a lot more sense. Brewer has made a new “Footloose” that is lighter on its feet and easier to swallow as a tale of teen rebellion against parents determined to overprotect their children. In most regards — we still miss Kevin Bacon — this is a “new and improved” “Footloose,” funnier, sunnier and funkier. Simply put, it works. Kenny Wormald, a dancerturned-actor (“You Got Served”), is the Boston kid who likes his music too loud for Bomont. He’s come to live with his Uncle Wes after burying his mom. And the drawling Wes (McKinnon of “Dolphin Tale,” superb in this part) is just the guy to show the kid the rules. Wes is a father figure who remembers his own heck-raising youth. Hough plays Ariel as an oversexed demon in cowboy boots, teasing the boys,

especially her rich redneck boyfriend. Of course, she’s going to flirt with the new kid. Eventually. Just as soon as she sees how much her preacher dad (Quaid) disapproves. And Miles Teller is very funny as Willard, the football-playing classmate who takes Ren under his wing, shows him around and teaches him about the South. It’s a corny story, and just as dated as it was when it first came out around 27 years ago. Some scenes, such as the bus race, work on their own, but feel shoehorned in. The whole Ariel’s-jealousboyfriend element fails to ignite. However, the dance scenes are more fun, and Hough gives it a sexy, sassy edge, all by herself — lots of hair flipping on the dance floor, tight skirts, tighter jeans. “Put a quarter in her back pocket,” one guy suggests.” You could tell if it was heads or tails.” If the opening dancing to the title tune doesn’t get you, the kids taking their shot at making country linedancing cool will. And if it doesn’t, you probably never got over that crush on Kevin Bacon back in junior high.

Stone crab gnudi worth the wait at The Macintosh BY ANGEL POWELL

say about the stone crab gnudi:

I’ve been a fan of Jeremiah Bacon for years, and I couldn’t wait to see what he brought to The Macintosh on Upper King Street. It was worth the wait. The Hickory Hills Ricotta Gnudi With Stone Crabs and Sweet 100s is, without a doubt, one of my favorite dishes of the year. The gnudi is so tender and pillowy, the large pieces of crab are rich and decadent, and the broth that finishes the dish has just enough of a lemon kick to cut all that richness and trick you into believing it’s perfectly OK to order a second helping of this yummy dish (not that I would ever do such a thing.). Here’s what Bacon has to

Q: Why do you think that gnudi lends itself to a seafood dish? A: I think the gnudi lends itself to seafood extremely well because it takes flavors very well; they are quite subtle and that allows us to impart other flavors onto them fairly easily.

Special to The Post and Courier

R57-622512

if you go

Q: When Stone Crabs and Sweet 100’s are no longer available, what will you replace them with in this dish? A: There are so many things that would work well with this dish. I am definitely planning to pair the dish with mushrooms at some point. I think that would be a fantastic accompaniment.

WHAT: Hickory Hills Ricotta Gnudi With Stone Crabs and Sweet 100s. WHERE: The Macintosh, 479-B King St., downtown. COST: $14. MORE INFO: 789-4299.

Q: Where are you picking up your stone crabs? A: These stone crabs are coming right out of the Stono River. We are so lucky to be getting this kind of a product locally.

gremolata, the traditional finishing condiment for osso bucco. Cooked to a tremulous center and laid over goat cheese-flavored grits that had the texture of souffle and smothered with flawless spinach — this dish was a winner.

The conundrum

We had reservations and were promptly seated, and then the rhythm of Opal began to unravel. We received the cumbersome menus: one for the entrees, one for beers and drink specials and one for the rest of the menu. They difficult to manage at a table for two. Water was poured and we waited. Drink orders were taken and we waited. We placed an appetizer order and it was expedited in a reasonable manner, but then the pace fell off. It was clear that the restaurant was well-staffed. Hosts (two) and a manager (one) patrolled the floor. It was and is a puzzle to our dining experience.

Pleasure business

All of the above being said, I am already planning a return visit. There was much to like on Opal’s menu. I am confident the management will take the time to examine their staffing model and a tasting spoon will tender each cook’s knife. Owens is a guitar hero: trading one pleasure business for another, and that is music to our mouths.

and hot tea. And Local is getting into the fall spirit by serving up a doozy of a pumpkin white mocha soy latte. Even better, the coffee shop also offers pumpkin muffins with cream cheese frosting (plus sticky buns) from Lauren Mitterer and Wild Flour Pastry. If you’re lucky, you may even be able to grab a cup of hot cider.

Fall is finally here, so have some fun All Hallows Eve

BY PAIGE HINSON

The Post and Courier

F

or me, fall is like bedtime at the end of the perfect day: You don’t want the good times to end, but you know that without some rest, you won’t be able to enjoy the fun that waits for you tomorrow. Summer is my perfect day. Every year, I impatiently await the time of year when I can spend all day on Folly Beach, tube down the Edisto River and ride my bike to a RiverDogs game. But by August, the 100degree temperatures and mosquitoes have taken their toll and I’m ready for a rest. That’s where fall comes in. Many Lowcountry event planners know the intense summer heat can make drawing big crowds pretty tough. So when fall rolls around, the event train gets rolling, and there’s so much going on it can be hard to decide how to spend your day.

The second set adds some Latin tunes and a medley of beach music. ... The third set brings hits from great horn bands like Earth, Wind and Fire, and Tower of Power. We also will be featuring vocalists Emma Lieberman and Jasmine Lynes, and a special guest appearance by Mark Morris.” Band booster Michelle Howard (flutist Keith Howard’s mother) said the fundraiser helps purchase and repair instruments, buy music and pay adjunct musicians for lessons. “We work hard to provide an evening of entertainment for the whole family,” she said. “(The event) is an opportunity to showcase our band program. The professionalism of the band and the camaraderie among those in attendance is evident as all have a great time in a beautiful setting, while dressed to the nines. This proves great fun can be had without alcohol or to the exclusion of anyone.” It’s a community effort that features music, dancing, food and fellowship. “Although the jazz ensemble provides the entertainment, all the high school band members work to make the evening possible: selling tickets, getting the word out and asking neighbors to at-

tend,” she said. For the army of volunteers, Howard said, it’s intense. The whole thing has to happen between 5 and 11 p.m., setup to cleanup. “Typically, we have 800 to 1,000 people attend this exciting event,” said Leo Schertz, SOA Band Boosters treasurer. “We try to keep the ticket price as reasonable as possible because we want it to be accessible to the kids. “We try to net $5,000, but ... the expenses are high. We really would like more sponsorship. For a first-class event like ‘Jump, Jive and Wail’ and for such a great cause, I hope we can increase the fundraising every year.” The SOA band program includes wind and percussion ensembles. Several of the band students perform with the SOA String Orchestra. SOA musicians also perform in local orchestra programs such as the Youth Orchestra of the Lowcountry. Other upcoming events include a free concert by the chamber ensembles at 6:30 p.m. Nov. 1 in the Rose Maree Myers Theatre at the school. And, the jazz ensemble will present “A Swingin’ Good Time” on Feb. 4. This is a fundraising party for adults only, a formal affair with dinner, cocktails and a silent auction.

New Found Glory stays in tune with fan base Beats Antique

W

hen five friends from Coral Springs, Fla., dubbed A New Found Glory released their first album in 1997, “It’s All About the Girls,” many were left wondering. The name sounded more like a gospel group than a rock band, but the album’s title suggested a band of love-lorn teenage boys. The latter assumption came closest to what was happening, and a devoted following, mostly comprised of Coral Springs youths, began to build around the band. By the time the follow-up, “Nothing Gold Can Stay,” was released in 1999, the band had toured the Eastern Seaboard extensively. Word of A New Found Glory’s punk-inspired pop songs and energetic live shows began to spread across the country. The album produced the single “Hit or Miss,” which landed on Billboard’s U.S. Modern Rock Chart and helped the album sell more than 300,000 copies with limited distribution. By 2009, the band, having dropped the “A” from its name, had released five albums, all of which cracked the Billboard charts and three of which were certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America. Over the years, New Found Glory has stayed consistent and intelligently in tune with its fan base. The band often has experimented but never strays too far from the poppunk, suburban-rebel music that multiple generations of youths relate to and its older fans reminisce over. New Found Glory is tour-

Weigh Station

PAST THE TRACKS

I love hearing folks say that the music scene in Charleston is dead. It always allows me to give numerous examples of why it’s as robust as ever. With the release of “Past the Tracks,” local group Weigh Station offers yet another weapon for my arsenal in defense of the Lowcountry music scene. Recorded locally at Ocean Industries under the professional eyes and ears of Eric Rickert and Jeff Leonard, “Past the Tracks” is one of those local releases that sounds as if it was recorded in a bigger city and in a more expensive facility. The truth, though, is that Charleston has facilities such as Ocean that combine the know-how and the professional equipment necessary to make a local recording sound good. Of course, this technical talk would all be null and void if the music in question stunk to high heaven, but in the case of Weigh Station there’s no need to worry. The local sextet, led by vocalist and guitarist John Heinsohn, scores the necessary trifecta of competent musicianship, wellsung vocals and, probably most important, material that is worthy of those first two traits. I’ve heard plenty of albums with great lyrics sung by tone-deaf singers, or with great vocalists spouting off lyrics so cliched that even bands such as Creed and Nickelback would say, “Dude, really?” Thankfully with Weigh Station, the whole package seems to be there. The band’s blend of rock and blues will appeal to a wide age range, and songs such as “Rain” and “What Next?” cry out for radio airplay. While I haven’t yet had the chance to see these guys play live, after hearing the six tracks on this CD, I’ll be making an effort to do so in the near future.

METALS

THE LOST NOTEBOOKS OF HANK WILLIAMS

A few years back, a cache of unrecorded lyrics written by folk music legend Woody Guthrie were discovered. Eventually those songs were recorded by Wilco and Billy Gragg, and the two resulting albums proved to be pretty interesting stuff. Fast forward to 2011, and apparently the same thing has happened with the late Hank Williams. The country music legend, who passed away in 1953 at the age of 29, left behind notebooks full of unrecorded lyrics. Now a group of musicians, both young and old, have interpreted those lyrics into song, and the resulting collection, “The Lost Notebooks of Hank Williams,” makes for some interesting listening. Originally, the idea was to find a single artist that would be able to interpret Williams’ lyrics, which led the album’s producers to Bob Dylan, who sings “The Love That Faded.” The producers wisely decided to include other artists as well, and the list includes country stars such as Alan Jackson, Patty Loveless, Vince Gill and Rodney Crowell, as well as pop and Americana artists such as Jakob Dylan, Sheryl Crow, Lucinda Williams and Jack White. While each of the artists obviously had Williams‘ recorded vocals and songwriting style to go by, there is definitely a variety of styles found here. Some artists, such as White and Levon Helm, stick pretty close to Williams’ style, almost imitating the late singer. Others though, such as Crow and Norah Jones, definitely take the music off in their own direction. The mavericks never completely hijack the idea of the album, but Williams purists might raise an eyebrow. Possibly the most beautiful track on the album is “I’m So Happy I Found You,” sung by Lucinda Williams. Anyone familiar with her work knows that the artist obviously isn’t going to sound like anyone but herself, and yet the living Williams (no relation to Hank) makes the words of the dead Williams sound even more emotional and beautiful. That’s considerable, given that, almost 60 years after his death, Hank Williams’ music still sounds as fresh and lively as when he was still alive to sing it.

KEY TRACKS: “The Love That Faded,” “How Many Times Have You Broken My Heart” and “I’m So Happy I Found You.”

Ben Folds

THE BEST IMITATION OF MYSELF: A RETROSPECTIVE When you see an artist such as Stevie Wonder, Elton John or Billy Joel hammering away at a piano while performing in front of a sellout crowd, there is no denying the power those 88 keys have. Ben Folds is an artist who has spent his career seeing just how many different ways he can make a piano rock. At a performance in town a few years back, that included jamming breath mint containers between the strings of his grand piano, resulting in a sound I doubt anyone had ever heard coming from a piano. While there have been other collections that spotlighted the music career of Folds and his band, Ben Folds Five, “The Best Imitation of Myself: A Retrospective” goes above and beyond in terms of the sheer volume of extra material. The set is divided into three CDs. The first disc features a collection of 18 songs from various Ben Folds Five and Folds solo albums. Fans will recognize BF5 radio hits such as “Brick” and “Underground,” as well as solo hits such as “Rockin’ the Suburbs.” There also is a new BF5 track that was recorded earlier this year. Disc 2 is where the real fun begins though. The 21 live tracks range from BF5 performances in Europe in 1997 to Folds performing solo in Adelaide, Australia, earlier this year. Standout live tracks include a great version of “Song for the Dumped” from 1998, as well as Folds performing a cover of Wham’s “Careless Whisper” with Rufus Wainwright in 2005. The third CD holds even more musical treasure. Among the 22 rarities on the CD are 17 that have never been released. Included are four-track home demos, covers, alternate mixes and even some new BF5 songs recorded this year. Throw in liner notes with song-by-song descriptions by Folds, and this is a collection any fan would be insane not to want.

A

KEY TRACKS: “House,” “Careless Whisper” and “Such Great Heights.”

While the music Feist makes is almost always exquisitely lovely on its own, over the past few years the indie artist has become known almost as much for the advertisements in which her music appears as the music itself. I’m guessing most of the television-watching public has been exposed to her hit “1234,” thanks to the ad for a certain electronic music player by a certain company with a fruit for its name. I certainly don’t condemn Feist for cashing in on the popularity of her music. After all, making that music is her job, so why shouldn’t she profit a bit if a car manufacturer wants to put one of her songs in its commercial. I could be bold and say that the music on Feist’s latest release, “Metals,” is far too sedate and beautiful to be sullied by an advert. I know better than to bet against Madison Avenue though. So until tracks such as “The Bad in Each Other” and “How Come You Never Go There” end up in a beer ad, you have the chance to discover them in their intended form; in among the rest of the excellent songs on “Metals.” For those familiar with the past works of Feist, there is plenty to enjoy here. Feist has a voice that is hypnotically beautiful, and the arrangements that surround that voice are equally as lovely, thanks to collaborations with Mocky, Chilly Gonzales, and Valgeir Sigurosson. The buildup that precedes the climax on “The Bad in Each Other” makes for a pretty dramatic album opener. Elsewhere things go from stark (“Graveyard”) to wonderfully strange and frantic (“Commotion”). There are even a few hints that Feist might be trying to usurp the throne of fellow avant garde musician Kate Bush. The younger Canadian singer even sounds like Bush on tracks such as “Caught Me a Long Wind” and “The Circle Married the Line.” Whatever her intentions, here’s hoping that Feist never changes whatever process she uses to write and record her heartbreakingly beautiful songs.

A

KEY TRACKS: “The Bad in Each Other,” “How Come You Never Go There” and “Cicadas and Gulls.”

ACE’S ON BRIDGE

By BOBBY WOLFF

In today’s deal from the Philadelphia world championships last year, two talented female players were in a delicate game contract. At both tables, against four hearts doubled, West unluckily led the spade king, squashing her partner’s 10. At the first table, declarer, Sheri Winestock, won with her ace and played a diamond to dummy’s ace. The next trick went heart four, three, two,andadiscard,aplaythatties a record. Declarer drew trump with the aid of another finesse, then conceded two spades and one diamond. Note, though, that as the play went, if East had been less frugal with his hearts, playing the jack or king at trick three, he would have defeated

the contract. Declarer would have won and played a second diamond, but West could have won, cashed two spades, and given East a spade ruff. At our second table West also led the spade king against four hearts doubled. Heather Bakhshi also won the ace and led a low diamond, but here, when West instinctively followed low, Bakhshi made the key play of dummy’s eight, ducking it into the hand that could not cash the spade winners before she was ready. East won and returned a diamondtodummy’sace.Bakhshiledtheheart10andranit,and now could pick up the trumps without loss, ruff a diamond in dummy, and concede just two spade tricks for plus 790.

Worker’s complaints tiring

Falling into cooler trivia

BY REBEKAH BRADFORD

Special to The Post and Courier

W

hen October arrives, you know it’s officially fall. Even in the Lowcountry, there’s a coolness in the air that says summer is definitely behind us. It’s the month when people start wearing sweaters again, switching their Starbucks orders to hot drinks instead of iced and throwing a blanket on the bed. This week’s Head2Head trivia celebrates the month of October. Current trivia champ, Melanie Carruthers, is taking on John Anderson, a tourist from Boston.

If you’re wearing this hat and this mustache, Oktoberfest is serious business.

AP

EAR ABBY: I share a small office space with a co-worker, “Tammy,” who is going through a nasty divorce. At first, I tried to be supportive and listen to her problems, but now I think it was a mistake. I now dread going to work because I know I’ll have to listen to a litany of complaints as soon as I walk through the door. I have tried to encourage Tammy to talk to a priest or a psychologist, but she refuses because she’s embarrassed. Is it time to inform our manager? I don’t want to get Tammy in trouble, but I feel I’m incapable of giving her the kind of support she seems to need. I’m not sure how much longer I can take this. — WELLINTENTIONED IN MINNEAPOLIS

DEAR ABBY DEAR WELL-INTENTIONED: Summon up the courage to tell Tammy that although you care about her, you can no longer listen to her problems because it’s distracting you from your responsibilities at work. Explain again that these are issues she should be sharing with a trained professional. If she persists in bringing her personal problems to you, then ask your manager to put a stop to it. Write Dear Abby at www. DearAbby.com.

QUESTIONS

1. What is celebrated the second Monday of every October? 2. What event was Germany’s Oktoberfest originally a celebration of in 1810? 3. What is October’s flower? 4.

What major sporting event always starts in October? 9. The book “Rocket Boys” was a memoir about Homer Hickam’s childhood growing up in West Virginia. What was the name of the movie with Jake Gyllenhaal that was based on the book? 10. The Celtic festival of Samhain is considered an early origin of what popular holiday?

CONCLUSION Melanie couldn’t hang on as Head2Head trivia champ a second week so the title passes to John, who had a convincing first win. Luckily, John will still be in town when he goes up against a new opponent next week. Can he make it two in a row? Stay tuned.
