JACKSONIAN CHRIS CAJOLEAS
hris Cajoleas woke up north of Tampa, Fla., early one morning several weeks ago, and his day didn’t end until late in Doulgassville, Ga., at the 7 Venue. Early the next morning, he headed to the Drunk Horse Pub in Fayetteville, N.C. The following day, he was in Richmond, Va., at Kingdom. The travel is all part of his job: Cajoleas, worked 16 shows in 18 days managing a tour featuring hip-hop artist Pell and DJ Staccato. As a kid, Cajoleas wasn’t really interested in music. Before transferring to Madison Central High School, he attended Jackson Academy, and his passion was sports—basketball, track and football. Cajoleas dreamed of touring the southeast, but as a college football running back or strong safety—not as a musical-event promoter and artist manager. “I didn’t really make the connection with bands when I was really young,” he says. “I just wanted to play college football.” Cajoleas’ brother, Jimmy, who is seven years older, did have the music bug; he toured for eight years with Colour Revolt. Cajoleas naturally wanted to hang with his big brother and his friends in the music industry, and over time, he developed similar passions. “As I became more involved with music, I found my niche,” Cajoleas says. “By the time I left for Mississippi State in 2009, I knew I was interested in the marketing side of music.” While at MSU, he majored in marketing and booked opening talent for events. Cajoleas
graduated from Mississippi State this past spring and now manages Pell, aka Jared Pellerin, among others. Pell’s first performance under Cajoleas’ management was at Hal and Mal’s in October 2012. They just wrapped up their “Fresh Produce Tour.” “I refer to it as the Fresh Produce Tour because Pell is perceived as a fresh and unique artist and brand in the music industry,” Cajoleas says. “He is not just a rapper. He is also a singer, which is not typical in the hip-hop, urban world.” Cajoleas, 22, is excited about starting his marketing career as an entrepreneur in the music world. “Music changes every day,” he says. “I have fresh ideas every day, and with technology, it is possible to instantly reach millions. It’s not the same music world anymore.” Lost Legend Entertainment, his company, takes its name from a story about a homeless man who worked outside the University Pub, once across from the King Edward Hotel downtown. The man called himself “The Lost Legend of Mississippi Music.” Ultimately, Cajoleas plans to handle artists in multiple musical genres, taking the artists’ visions, and strategizing and growing their brands. For now, though, Cajoleas loves life on the road, waking up every day in a new place, meeting new people and relating to college students and 20-somethings. —Marilyn Trainor Storey

Making it Happen
pen-mic nights seem to be the place to be on weekdays—maybe even on weekends, too— in Jackson. This summer, I frequented them at Fenian’s Pub and Martin’s Lounge. One of my musician friends tried his best to perform at those bars each week. One Monday night at Martin’s (my first time going to Martin’s on a Monday), I joined him for openmic night. I didn’t know what to expect. Chris Rybolt, Martin’s bartender, manager and music booker, had set up a microphone and some sound equipment toward the back of the primary bar. When I walked in, my friend was already setting up to play, his maroon hollow-body Gretsch hanging from a guitar strap around his body and a cold Blue Moon—one of our favorite beers—in hand. I sat at a table with several of our friends; we made up about half the attendees at the bar. I expected that open mic would be something like karaoke, where you got to play one song at a time, but my friend, who was playing first that night, performed at least four or five. He had a whole set list planned. This was also my first time seeing him perform live for an audience that wasn’t a few friends in a room or Millsaps College students sitting outside on campus. I recognized all of the songs he played; they were originals, but he had played them for me on different occasions. Every time I’ve seen him play at open-mic nights since then, people have come up to him after to let him know that he did a great job or to ask if he had any CDs available. He would just direct them to his SoundCloud account. Although he is only 22, he believes he is starting his musical career late. While
other people his age and younger were doing the open-mic scene already and even getting bands together and recording EPs and LPs, he was busy studying for music theory and other Millsaps classes. What he should realize, however, is that it is almost never too late to pursue a passion and that he should not be comparing himself to others anyway.
No matter how you want to be involved in the Jackson music scene and its various subscenes, a place for you exists. That’s a sure way to feel like a failure. Chicago-based blues and rock player Voo Davis—who plays at Underground 119 Oct. 26—says he didn’t even start playing the guitar until he was about 19. Now, at 40 years old, Davis has two full-length records, the latter of which came out in September. The first album, “A Place for Secrets,” spent seven months on the American Music Awards
and Roots Music Report charts. I’m sure that at some points in his life, he also felt as if he should have been making music instead of doing something else. For this year’s music issue, I interviewed Jackson-based Adam Collier, aka AJC, of AJC and the Envelope Pushers. He’s 28 years old and is working to release his first LP in April. He is relying on community support to make it happen and is hopeful about the coming months. AJC has big plans and knows that Jackson will help him out. The Jackson music scene, as Lydia Bain of Wink & the Signal described it to the JFP (page 16), is full of different age groups and skill levels working together to help each other succeed. The community aspect of the scene is strong, and to some it might be daunting. Someone on Twitter recently asked the Jackson Free Press what the best ways are to get involved with the Jackson music scene. Some might think that a silly question because Jackson seems to be flourishing with music, but I would say that many of those artists have long been part of the scene in one way or another. From the outside, it might be easy to wonder how to get in. Everyone seems to know each other already, as last year’s “Jackson’s Musical Family Affair” illustrated. Artists in and around the city have come together, regardless of genre, age or gender, to create great music. No matter how you want to be involved in the Jackson music scene and its various sub-scenes, a place for you exists. Shows need volunteers, promoters need street teams and bands need members. The easiest and quickest way, however, to get involved with music in Jackson is show your face at music events around town. Working in an office with
Music Listings Editor Tommy Burton has shown me just how much music is happening in Jackson. Each week, the music listings email (music@jacksonfreepress. com) gets dozens of messages detailing upcoming events, all of which go up at jfp.ms/musiclistings. Some names come up each week, often with more than one performance per week. Venues such as Duling Hall, Martin’s Lounge, Ole Tavern on George Street, Freelon’s Bar and Groove, and Hal & Mal’s have live music each week. Open-mic nights are also an important part of Jackson nightlife. While some may think open mic is just stomping ground for amateur artists, it has actually proven to be the opposite for me. I wouldn’t call a single thing about the performances I saw this summer “amateur.” Each artist was professional and seemed seasoned in his or her approach to performing, regardless of age or genre. Some of the people performing at Martin’s or Fenian’s were there almost every week just like my friend. Open mic was the only time that some of them ever get the opportunity to perform for an audience. Others were accustomed to playing around town either solo or with full bands and did open mic for fun, more exposure, or a change of scenery. The longer I stay in Jackson, the more I discover about its rich musical history and present. This year’s artists to watch show just how diverse Jackson’s music scene is right now. If anyone is wondering how to get involved or get started, they should just take some advice from the folks featured in this issue. They’re making it happen, and so can everyone else.

Will Ratepayers Get Hosed? by Tyler Cleveland
he city of Jacksonâ€™s water and sewer rate increases included in the cityâ€™s 2014 budget will go into effect in 30 days, and the first bill to reflect those rate increases will go out in December. Right now, itâ€™s unclear if the promised relief for residents on fixed incomes will be available at the same timeâ€”or how it can legally be done. The program includes at least $175,000 for low-income people who can prove they cannot afford the extra expense for the increased rates. The task of setting up the program, which city leadership hopes to have in place before bills reach customer mailboxes this month, is left to Michael Raff, director of Jacksonâ€™s Health and Human Services Department. Raff said heâ€™s â€œhopefulâ€? that the program will be in place, but indicated that the program has to clear legal hurdles, and that the city attorneyâ€™s office is still looking at the proposal. Details are not available, but former City Attorney Pieter Teeuwissen, who officially left his post Sept. 30 to take a similar job as an attorney for the Hinds County Board of Supervisors, explained that the city canâ€™t simply give money to its citizens. â€œThe program was proposed last year,â€? Teeuwissen said. â€œAt that time, our legal department opined that it would be considered a gratuity if the city came up with the system and distributed the funds, and you just canâ€™t do that; however, non-profits are allowed by statute. We give money to Stewpot, Habitat for Humanity, and the Boys and Girls Club, so this system would have to be set up similar to those programs. Theyâ€™ll have to develop their own rules and
procedures, but it should work well.â€? The Hinds County Human Resource Agency, a non-profit entity, has offered to distribute the funds at no cost to the city.
Jackson, by comparison, has some of the lowest rates in the southeast. City statistics state that the average monthly sewer bill in Jackson is $15.66. With the increase, TRIP BURNS

Complaints over increased water and sewer rates have continued, even after the Jackson City Council passed the 2013-2014 fiscal-year budget.
The organization already distributes funds through 10 separate income-based programs, including one that helps low-income Hinds County residents pay their energy bills. Mayor Chokwe Lumumba raised water and sewer rates as part of his first budget, which a majority of the Jackson City Council approved Sept. 12. The increases are necessary in light of the cityâ€™s crumbling infrastructure and a $380 million consent decree from the Environmental Protection Agency to fix the wastewater management system.
that number doubles to $31.33, which is still lower than Atlanta; Birmingham or Huntsville, Ala.; Charleston, S.C.; Little Rock, Ark.; Louisville, Ky.; New Orleans and St. Louis, Mo. (See sidebar). If you combine water and sewer payments, the total increase is 40 percent. For the average Jackson homeowner, the bill increases from $52.76 a month to $73.92.

are still well below those other cityâ€™s rates. After the increase, the average annual water and sewer bill is roughly $887. What the city has done is not unusual. Faced with a similar situation, Baltimore increased its rates 42 percent on water and sewer last year. Birmingham raised its water rate 4.9 percent this year, and the leadership of Shreveport, La., voted to raise its water and sewer rates by 13 and 55 percent, respectively. But the reality is that many Jackson budgets donâ€™t have a lot of leeway. U.S. Census data reveal that the cityâ€™s per capita income in 2011 was $19,301, and the median household income was $34,567. Nearly 28 percent of Jacksonians live below the poverty level. The rates in other cities donâ€™t mean much to Jackson resident Joe Harvey. The Jackson retiree, who lives at 4031 California Ave. in the heart of Jackson, was one of the concerned citizens who attended the mayorâ€™s town hall meeting at Progressive Missionary Baptist Church Sept. 11. â€œThose numbers they are putting out arenâ€™t worth the paper (theyâ€™re) printed on,â€? Harvey said. â€œAtlanta is a big city. Thereâ€™s a lot of industry and a lot of jobs. Thatâ€™s why they pay more. Right now, we have people coming into Jackson, earning income, and taking their money to McComb, Vicksburg, Meridian, Rankin County and Madison. I say we find a way to get them to help. They run on the roads, use the water, and go back and spend their income and pay their taxes somewhere else.â€? Harvey had heart surgery in 1995 and
has been living on disability and Social Security ever since. He lost one of his kidneys, and is required to drink a lot of water every day. The water at his house, he says, is undrinkable, so he buys $40 worth of bottled water every week at Samâ€™s. â€œWe have Medicaid and Medicare, but I have had bypass heart surgery, a kidney stone, and now I have an aneurysm, and they say I have to go back,â€? he said. â€œMy wife gets $500 a month, and our total income is $1,600 a month. I am paid up now on my medical bills, but we are already scraping by, so my expense on water is really affecting us.â€? Harvey said his average water bill is around $100. While he is looking into getting his household on the cityâ€™s payment assistance program, he said he has been denied in the past because he was told his household income is too high. The city bills water customers every two months, and Jacksonians will see the first bills with the new rate for October. Septemberâ€™s portion of the bill will be at the old rate. Ratepayers will see the full increase in November/December bills. For folks like Harvey, details of the cityâ€™s plan an assistance program cannot come fast enough. At this point, itâ€™s unclear whether he would even qualify for the program, much less how to access the benefits. â€œIâ€™m not the only one that this will hurt,â€? Harvey said. â€œI talk to people in my neighborhood all the time that have it tough. If all the people that got their rates increased would get up off their behind and show up, there could have been standing room only (in the town hall). Iâ€™m not the only one sitting on fixed income. People needed to let them know how they felt.â€? Comment at www.jfp.ms. Email Tyler Cleveland at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Crossfire by R.L. Nave
Vigil Gives Mom Peace, Not Justice wants justice for her son. Reports from local TV news stations that covered the July 12 shooting suggest that sometime before dawn, a homeowner in the Lakeover subdivision of northwest Jackson crept out onto his front porch and fired several shots at an individual he said he believed was trying to steal his SUV. Jackson police officials declined to charge the homeowner with a crime, citing Mississippi’s Castle Doctrine, which outlines circumstances under which individuals may be justified in using deadly force to protect their home, automobile or body. After questions arose about the doctrine’s applicability to Thomas’ shooting in Lakeover, in which the vehicle was unoccupied, police said the homeowner feared Thomas was making a move for a gun of his own. Thomas’ family is dubious about the details of the reports. Media reports initially stated that Thomas was shot five times, but a report emergency physicians at University of Mississippi Medical Center completed ob-

lmost three months have passed since Quardious Thomas was shot and killed in northwest Jackson’s Lakeover subdivision for allegedly trying to steal a car. “It feels like yesterday,” said his mother, Tonya Greenwood. At a vigil held Oct. 4, friends and family members shared remembrances of the young man they refer to as “Q.” Family friend Nancy Gaynor described Thomas as both brilliant and stubborn. Once arrested for house burglary in 2012, Thomas seemed to have straightened up enough to complete his high-school equivalency and he planned to start taking classes at Hinds Community College in the fall. “Q was a unique person; there was nobody like Q,” Gaynor said of 20-year-old Thomas, whom she knew for a decade. Greenwood called the vigil a muchneeded outlet for her grief as well as that of her family, but she stopped short of saying the vigil represents closure—she still
an arrest because witnesses said Brown initiated a gun battle. “He shot at the other guy first. Apparently he missed, then the other guy returned fire striking him about 12 times. It’s not for me to judge the amount of rounds that were fired. I don’t know if the amount of times he fired his weapon is of any circumstance at this point,” Vance told WLBT-TV’s Cheryl Lasseter. Matt Steffey, a professor of constitutional law at the Mississippi College School of Law in Jackson, explained that although police and district attorneys have a lot of discretion in terms of whether to arrest or charge people with crimes, in all deliberate shootings a prima facie case for assault exists or, if the victim dies, for homicide. “(If) I pick up a gun and shoot you, even in self defense, I have met the elements of intentional homicide,” Steffey said. DeUndra Brown describes her husband as a fun guy who loved being a father to his 16-month-old daughter and 11-year-old son and mentoring neighborhood kids on how to break into the music industry. She believes that if a witness to her husband’s shooting contacts JPD and tells police what they say, it might move the investigation along and help bring the shooter to justice. “It hurts me that nobody in that neighborhood will speak up. He would have done anything for them,” she said. Comment at www.jfp.ms. Email R.L. Nave at email@example.com.

served six gunshot wounds. Family members who observed Thomas’ body after the shooting, however, report seeing numbers written next to bullet holes; the numbers went up to eight, family members told the Jackson Free Press.
Jackson police say the Hinds County District Attorney’s office has the case. Hinds County District Attorney Robert Shuler Smith did not respond to phone calls and emails. Matt Steffey, a professor of constitutional law at Mississippi College School of Law, says the state’s Castle Doctrine legislation did not have the intended effect of clarifying when deadly force is justified. “I think the main thing the Castle Doctrine accomplished is (it) made more citizens confused about what their rights were. I’m not sure that it really expanded anybody’s self-defense rights, but it sure made the issue more complicated,” Steffey said. Tonya Greenwood is hopeful that law-enforcement will provide more answers about how her son died. “I miss him. I love him and all that, but that won’t bring him back,” Greenwood said. She described the pain of losing Quardious: “It’s like a hole that I can’t fill with nothing.” Contact R.L. Nave at firstname.lastname@example.org. Comment at www.jfp.ms.

and a dentistâ€™s office. Later, in the 1950s and 1960s, civil-rights leaders held meetings in the areaâ€™s churches, restaurants and homes. Icons of the movement, including Stokely Carmichael and Medgar Evers, made the push for equality out of an NAACP office
of Farish and Griffith streets, and a small handful of legacy businesses hanging on, but none of that was Watkinsâ€™ doing. The Farish Street Groupâ€™s plans included 13 venues on the stretch of storefronts from Amite Street to Griffith Street, but TRIP BURNS

art. It ought to beâ€”the mixture of private and public investment for the historic district since renovation began now totals more $20 million. So why isnâ€™t Farish Street thriving? Thatâ€™s a question Jackson Redevelopment Authority officials are apparently tired of asking, leading them to cancel the contract with developer Farish Street Group LLC at the Sept. 25 JRA meeting. The group, and its lead investor and developer David Watkins, had held the development lease for Farish Street since 2008. Jackson Mayor Chokwe Lumumba said during his mayoral campaign earlier this year that it was time for JRA to go in a new direction. In late September, Lumumba called the boardâ€™s decision to cut ties to the former contractor â€œlong overdue.â€? â€œUnfortunately, it just didnâ€™t work out, and it was time for a change,â€? Lumumba said. â€œHopefully, some of the people who were involved with the previous group will be able to remain involved, but I just donâ€™t think they will be able to do what was originally planned. Either way, it didnâ€™t make sense for the city to be held hostage by one long-term contract.â€? Lumumba has called for Watkinsâ€™ group to be kicked to the curb since December 2012 when he served on the Jackson City Council. The history of Farish Streetâ€™s renovation efforts, which Jackson architect Steven Horn first proposed in 1983, is as shameful as the area is illustrious. Once a bustling downtown strip that served as a business and social hub for Jacksonâ€™s African American community, much of Farish Street sat abandoned for years, contributing to making the area increasingly prone to crime. At its peak from 1900 to World War II, the strip housed African American attorneys, doctorâ€™s offices, a bank, two hospitals
The structures along Farish Street, like this building across the street from Frank Jones Corner at the corner of Griffith and Farish Streets, appear to be ready for businesses to move in, but still have structural problems on the interior.
located at 507 N. Farish St. The area suffered a rough economic downturn following school integration and was almost completely vacant from 1975 to 1983, when plans to revitalize the area surfaced. In the three decades since, planning, renovations and new construction have been ongoing, but little has come to fruition. The Farish Street Group was the latest, but certainly not the first development groupâ€”or the last, hopefullyâ€”to get involved. It generated renewed hope, however, because of Watkins. He was known for his prominent role in renovating the historic King Edward Hotel and Standard Life buildings, both of which are now fully operational and breathing life into downtown Jackson. That momentum didnâ€™t carry over to nearby Farish Street. It does have one nightclub, Frank Jones Corner, open at the corner
the future of those buildings is once again unclear. Watkins had hoped to have a B.B. Kingâ€™s Blues Club open on the street by the end of 2012, but after architects finalized designs for the club, engineers discovered that the structure was not capable of supporting the capacity load. In fact, the building didnâ€™t even have a foundation. Watkins did not return phone calls for comment. All of that leaves the JRA board with the decision on what to do with the property next. When the Jackson Free Press asked for a comment concerning Farish Street, JRA board member Beneta Burt deferred to board President Ronnie Crudup. Crudup, the bishop at New Horizon Church, has not returned numerous calls for comment. Comment at jfp.ms. Email Tyler Cleveland at email@example.com.

Pimp Slapped and Car Jacked
iss Doodle Mae: â€œJojo is a savvy boss who always keeps the Jojoâ€™s Discount Dollar Store staff involved and aware regarding whatâ€™s happening in the world and in the discount dollar-store business. On the eve of the government shutdown, he called for an emergency staff meeting. For a moment, the staff and I thought we were about to be furloughed. Instead, Jojo wanted to have a heart-to-heart chat with his long-term employees. Whew!â€? Jojo: â€œThe bad news is that some mean and callus politicians in Washington, D.C., will continue to pimp slap, car jack, hijack, beat down and humiliate the American people by shutting down the government. The government of the people, by the people, and for the people seems to be gradually perishing from this bitter earth. And the real people suffer the consequences. Furloughed federal-government employees will not get paid. Government services for the people will be delayed. â€œThe good news is that Jojoâ€™s Discount Dollar Store staff will be unaffected by the government shutdown. During this unfortunate crisis, Jojoâ€™s Discount Dollar Store will become an oasis of hope and understanding for people affected by the shutdown. â€œStarting today, I will stock Jojoâ€™s Discount Dollar Store with necessary items at half price for furloughed workers, WIC Program recipients, and disabled and senior citizens. â€œNow that you have the good and bad news, itâ€™s time to open the doors of Jojoâ€™s Discount Dollar Store and help those folk who have been shut out.â€?

Â°53 #ONGRESSMAN 2EP !LAN .UNNELEE A 2EPUBLICAN IN AN /CT STATEMENT
Why it stinks: As Nunneleeâ€™s fellow Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives have demonstrated over the past week, â€œcooperationâ€? isnâ€™t the goal. Their actions, refusing to keep the federal government funded and running, amount to extortion. The following day, Nunnelee said this to a reporter: â€œ(Senate Majority Leader) Harry Reidâ€™s refusal to negotiate is an arrogance that I havenâ€™t seen in this town.â€? Right. The height of arrogance is to repeatedly try and fail to repeal a law that Congress passed three years ago and the conservative U.S. Supreme Court largely upheldâ€”a law that the American people voted for when they re-elected President Barack Obama. Now, theyâ€™re holding the American peopleâ€”and, some say, democracy itselfâ€”hostage to get their way. Some GOPers are more truthful about whatâ€™s going on. Rep. Marlin Stutzman, R-Ind., and Rep. Dennis Ross, R-Fla., said the arrogance is piling up on the conservative side of the equation. â€œWeâ€™re not going to be disrespected,â€? Stutzman told reporters. â€œ ... We have to get something out of this. And I donâ€™t know what that even is.â€? Ross said this to The New York Times: â€œRepublicans have to realize how many significant gains weâ€™ve made over the last three years, and we have, not only in cutting spending but in really turning the tide on other things. We canâ€™t lose all that when thereâ€™s no connection now between the shutdown and the funding of Obamacare. I think now itâ€™s a lot about pride.â€?
Shutdown: All Part of the Plan
he Republican members of the U.S. Congress, including the Mississippi coalition, are trying to blame the government shutdown on anyone but themselves. The talking points have become as annoying as Mississippi mosquitoes: â€œObamacare is train wreck!â€? â€œDemocrats refuse to negotiate!â€? Malarkey. Letâ€™s put aside that funding for Affordable Care Act is part of the mandatory portion of the budget. The part Congress is fighting about now is the discretionary portion, thus the â€œpartialâ€? shutdown. Letâ€™s not consider that the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the constitutionality of the overwhelming majority of the actâ€”everything except the part mandating states expand their Medicaid programs. We donâ€™t have to talk about how the ACA is derived from a conservative Heritage Foundation plan or that itâ€™s essentially what then-Gov. Mitt Romney enacted in Massachusetts. And the American peopleâ€”the ones who re-elected Barack Obama by an overwhelming majority less than a year ago? The same American people priced out of adequate health care? The 800,000 sitting idle, the toddlers with no day care? We donâ€™t have to bring them into the picture, either. No, we donâ€™t need to talk about that. But hereâ€™s what we should talk about: The Republican Party has been planning this tacticâ€”holding the budget and, possibly, the debt ceiling, hostageâ€”for months. At least, the far-right-wing purists of the partyâ€”and their big buckets of moneyâ€”have
done so, and The New York Times broke that story in its Sunday edition: â€œTo many Americans, the shutdown came out of nowhere. But interviews with a wide array of conservatives show that the confrontation that precipitated the crisis was the outgrowth of a longrunning effort to undo the law, the Affordable Care Act, since its passage in 2010â€”waged by a galaxy of conservative groups with more money, organized tactics and interconnections than is commonly known.â€? Two examples: Freedom Works, a conservative advocacy group published a memo in February that outlines its â€œBlueprint for Defunding Obamacare.â€? The Tea Party Patriots published its â€œDefunding Obamacare Toolkitâ€? in September, complete with talking points just in case they get the blame. For Tea Party-backed Republican hardliners, no tactic is too harsh. They will sacrifice the health and treasure of the American people, and the economic stability of the nation. Moderate estimates of the shutdownâ€™s cost are $300 million a day; one week costs the nation $2.1 billion. This isnâ€™t about whatâ€™s good for the American people. It never was. This is about ideological purity, and it has to stop. Call your Republican congressman and tell him. Sen. Thad Cochran: 202-224-5054; 601965-4459. Sen. Roger Wicker: 202-224-6253; 601-965-4644. Rep.

A Musical Elephant
Located at Jackson, 2758 Emerald Dr
t’s a scene any Mississippi resident would recognize. People were bustling about, eating fried catfish and pulled-pork sandwiches, or they were sipping lemonade and sweet tea while sitting on folding chairs and blankets. All of them were listening to a rotating cast of locals performing the blues and gospel music. It was almost identical to any other late-summer festival happening in rural towns across the state. This one just happened to be where my family stopped for lunch during the seven-hour drive from Atlanta to Millsaps College after the summer break. My mom looked around, marveling at the scene. “I can’t believe you’ve spent four years in Jackson, and you still don’t like the blues music,” she remarked. Whoa! Hold on. Let’s back up here. Blues is a great genre of music. It’s earthy, powerful and sometimes humorous: a perfect soundtrack to a day eating barbecue. But I would never rip it away from its roots and cram it into the small confines of my dorm room. This music belongs outside in the summer heat and is best enjoyed from a blanket—or in a dark, smoky bar. It would be out of place on my iPod as I walk around Belhaven. It’s not a good fit for the loudspeakers of clubs like the Mosquito or in stores like Swell-o-Phonic. Blues is a great rural Mississippi tradition, but my experience in Jackson and Oxford is that it’s not the only genre we have to offer. Music-heads love talking about Mississippi’s rich musical tradition. Most cite Elvis as a typical example, alongside Muddy Waters and B.B. King. While the blues are great in context— and we certainly have a wealth of talent in that genre—our continuing to trot out these old tropes to define the “Mississippi music” sound is limiting the music scene’s potential for growth here, as well as the state’s musical reputation across the nation. Jackson and the surrounding towns have more to offer the music scene of America. After all, this is the post-Internet age: We don’t have to limit inspiration to local barbecues anymore. Just a few examples: Spacewolf has been churning out grimy rock songs that reference ’90s grunge acts such as Nirva-
na as well as modern acts like Yuck. Bass Drum of Death is part of a nationwide movement of indie-rock musicians playing lo-fi gravelly bursts of noise. That Scoundrel makes garage rock that draws from jazz and blues as well as punk and psychedelic music. And the baroque pop of The Da Vincis falls in line with the pristine pop of Vampire Weekend. The Internet has also made it possible for these bands to gain exposure in scenes outside the state. Bass Drum of Death’s sophomore EP got reviewed in magazines in the United Kingdom and on revered hipster music blogs such as Pitchfork. Paste Magazine did a profile on Mississippi music artists, which listed gospel and blues acts as well as rockscene stalwarts such as The Weeks. Even more exciting are projects that seem to spring up out of nowhere. When I first heard JTRAN, the little-known electronic freak-out project of producer Tre Pepper and artist Josh Hailey, I was floored. It sounded like nothing I’ve heard in Jackson before or since, with electronic squelches and hiccupping drum lines. (My roommates complained at times that my computer was broken, but later, I caught them dancing to JTRAN in the bathroom.) Hip-hop producer Got Koke!? (aka Matthew Furdge) has received two Grammy nominations for his work on albums by 2 Chainz and Rick Ross, proving that Jackson, too, produces southern hip-hop. Artists like these, who might not sound to others as if they hail from Jackson, are the key to breaking Mississippi music’s single narrative of the Delta blues musician. At the Sept. 28 premier of the documentary “subSIPPI” at the Mississippi Museum of Art, one quote stood out for me. The narrator told the anecdote of the baby elephant: If you repeatedly chain a baby elephant, when it grows up, it will still act as if it’s tethered, even though it now has more than enough strength to break free. Mississippi’s music scene is an unchained elephant. We’re more than capable of breaking out and exploring new terrain when defining our music. Editorial Intern Mo Wilson is a Millsaps College senior.
