Bike/Walk Macon Installs Unique Bike Racks Around Downtown No need to complain about finding a parking space downtown, ride your bike - and park at one of 12 new, unique bike racks placed at Just Tap’d, H&H, The Rookery and more! A couple of the racks are artistic, representing Macon. One of them is twelve feet long, and spells out Macon, which will be located in front of Just Tap’d. The other is shaped like a saxophone you can find outside The Creek. This program was funded by a $5,000 Downtown Challenge grant. “If you’re out running an errand or just getting a bite to eat to know that you can comfortably lock your bike in front of the place you’re going and know it’s safe and secure when you get back is a needed improvement to donwtown Macon,” said Rachel Hollar, Bike Walk Macon’s executive director.

With more than 20 years of journalism and publishing experience, Stacey Norwood earned her chops as an investigative reporter and features writer for daily and weekly community newspapers in Tuscaloosa, Bibb County (AL), and Clanton, AL before moving to a longish stint in TV news as a crime and courts reporter in Birmingham. Passionate about twangy prose and a devotee of Southern culture, Stacey deepened her wordsmithing skills serving as an editor and contributing writer for such magazines as Victoria, Sandra Lee’s Semi-Homemade, Taste of the South and Relish. Her hobbies include writing a Macon-centric blog, trolling the Internet for truly revolting vintage recipes, collecting real (not department store) art, and cooking. In her spare time, Stacey is the proud Mother of Doggos (it is known). Much to her disappointment, however, her mutts, Miss Oda Mae Brown and Margaret Thatcher, have yet to breathe actual fire no matter how many times she yells “dracarys” at them.

A public forum to discuss Confederate monuments and the various points of view about what they symbolize will be held at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, September 6, at Middle Georgia State University. This event, hosted by Middle Georgia State’s History and Political Science department, will take place in the Arts Complex Theater on the Macon Campus. “Monument Forum: Artifacts, History, Heritage” will feature discussion led by three Civil War historians: Dr. Niels Eichhorn of Middle Georgia State, Dr. James ‘Trae’ Welborn of Georgia College, and Dr. Mark A. Smith of Fort Valley State University. Members of the audience will have ample opportunity to ask questions. “We’ll address the recent incident in Charlottesville, Virginia,” Eichhorn said, “but also contribute to the broader conversation that communities across the nation are having about the meaning and placement of these monuments.” The forum - free and open to the public - is co-hosted by Middle Georgia State’s History Student Organization. For more information, contact Dr. Niels Eichhorn at

She graduated from Middle Georgia State University with a BA in English and now spends her free time exploring her favorite city. In addition to words, she also consumes generous amounts of both red wine and red meat. If she is not reading/writing, drinking Cabernet Sauvignon, or eating burgers with bleu cheese, she is probably asleep.

Perfect Pear’s Chicken Pot Pie

If your experience of Perry is limited to your once-a-year visit to the Georgia National Fair, it might be time for you to take a little road trip – the Georgia National Fairgrounds are impressive, sure, but there’s a whole different vibe going on in downtown Perry. While Macon’s downtown revitalization has been writ large, Perry’s has been simpler and subtler, resulting in a charming, inviting, quintessentially Southern-smalltown community. Carroll Street in downtown Perry boasts the best of what this refreshing little city has to offer, and the beloved restaurant/catering company The Perfect Pear is located right at the heart of it all. Megan Brent, owner/operator of The Perfect Pear, is from Coleman Falls, Virginia – a small town that “makes Perry look like a metropolis,” she laughs. She and her husband Richard – who is Director of Collections and Merchandising at the Big House here in Macon - have been here since 2007, but she’s been working in various capacities in the restaurant industry for close to a quarter of a century, “This really is my niche,” she says, “and Lord knows it takes a special person to want to feed people for a living, but I love everything about it.” As a restaurant employee, Megan always took the time to pay attention to what was and wasn’t working, filing that information away for a later date when she’d be able to use it to better her own business. That’s one reason why, as she says, she’s “always present at The Perfect Pear – it’s not that I micromanage, it’s just that I noticed every successful business has an owner who’s active and present and visible at that business. If anything goes wrong, I’m there to fix it.” She’s also a constant fixture in The Perfect Pear’s tidy, efficient kitchen, where she and one other employee do all the cooking. “I could not be more proud of the amount of food we pump out!” she says – and they always keep it fresh and delicious. The Perfect Pear started out as a catering-only business, and that’s still the bulk of the work they do, but six years ago in June, they opened their doors as a restaurant, too. Because of the time and space demanded by the catering business, the restaurant keeps slightly odd hours – they’re open for Sunday brunch from 11-2, lunches Monday-Wednesday 11-2, and the occasional very popular dinner or brunch pop-up for 08 SEPTEMBER 1 - 15, 2017

special occasions. Megan is always having fun with the food she cooks – “I love to try things out at home,” she says, then goes on to describe the “Gouda Grief ” burger (“I came up with that name; I think I’m funny,” she says, laughing) made with Greenway Farms beef, bacon, gouda cheese, apple slices, and apple jam; she added it to the menu at her husband’s insistence and was surprised when it became an instant best seller. The restaurant’s all-time favorite, though, is its “Perfect” pimiento cheese, most popularly ordered in the grilled pimiento cheese and bacon sandwich, served with a side of tomato-basil bisque. Chicken salad is also a favorite – Megan’s flattered when guests call to order it in bulk to serve as part of their weekend plans – and the Downtown Hot Brown and the Bahn Mi are two newer sandwiches that are gaining traction. Desserts are another Perfect Pear specialty – guests rave about the decadent Krispy Kreme bread pudding, the key lime pie is homemade from an original recipe, and the pecan pie bread pudding was named one of the Georgia Department of Tourism’s “100 Plates Locals Love” for 2016, an honor which thrills Megan to no end. Another thing that thrills Megan – the opportunity she’s given as a caterer to be involved in so many of the big, beautiful moments of people’s lives. “This past Sunday, we had a couple come in for brunch who were one of the first couples we ever catered for, back when we first started,” she says, “and I loved seeing them and catching up! It’s so cool to be able to have the restaurant and run into people that way.” Being successful in the independent restaurant industry isn’t easy – “Whoever came up with that saying, ‘Do something you love and you’ll never work a day in your life’ did NOT work in food service,” laughs Megan. “I work hard, but my customers and this community make it all worthwhile.” If you have a special occasion coming up, give The Perfect Pear catering a call – and if you happen to be passing through Perry at the right time, by all means, stop in for a perfect lunch. Follow The Perfect Pear Catering LLC on Facebook for specials, pop-ups, news, and more! 09

10 SEPTEMBER 1 - 15, 2017

The curriculum was adaptable to personal interests. The teaching style of professors was flexible - geared toward meeting students’ needs.

I Am A Mercerian. Sharon McElhaney, Adult Undergraduate Student There is nothing “typical” about Sharon McElhaney. At a stage of life where other people might start thinking about slowing down and taking it easy, she’s just getting started. The mother of four grown children and a retired district analyst for the U.S. Postal Service, Sharon is also a recent graduate of Mercer University. She obtained her Bachelor of Arts degree from Mercer in the Liberal Studies program, with concentrations in Religious Studies and Writing. Through her faith, Sharon says, she was led to Mercer unexpectedly, where to her “great surprise,” she was embraced “with open arms.” Not only did Mercer’s helpful staff and faculty welcome Sharon to the campus, they also helped pave the way for an unlikely second career path. Shortly after returning from a six-week mission trip at a faith-based homeless shelter in Chicago in 2011, and filled with a passion for working with people who live on “the fringes of American society,” Sharon felt inspired to establish a similar facility in Macon. Prayer, she says, led her to her the doorsteps of the Mercer Admissions Office, and through a leap of faith, words of encouragement, and the benefit of financial aid, Sharon found herself back in a classroom for the first time in many years. Seasoned, supportive staff and strong mentorship from instructors helped guide Sharon though the process of choosing a major and laying the groundwork for a focused area of study, while a flexible mix of online coursework and weekend and evening classes helped keep her on task and on track. More than that, the education Sharon received at Mercer helped open her mind to the possibility of reviving her temporarily “deferred dream” of caring for Macon’s homeless. Inspiration came first through an essay Sharon wrote as a class assignment – a composition on the life of Jane Addams. Addams, the second woman ever to receive the Nobel Peace Prize, initiated the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom in

1919. She also co-founded Hull House, a settlement agency in Chicago that offered immigrants a wide range of vital services, helped newcomers to America integrate into the culture and workforce, and which, ultimately, was held up as a national standard-bearer for social reform. Learning about Addams’ work “opened my mind to my future direction,” Sharon says. It also planted the seed for unexpected growth not only as a student, but as a person. “Topics for essays strategically designed to produce introspection brought about a newfound freedom. Honest dialogue with professors brought awareness of life issues from finances to race relations,” Sharon says. “I learned the importance of listening. I gained self-esteem and confidence by obtaining my BA degree, being the recipient of honors and an honor graduate, and becoming a published author and the student editor of a book. My ability to speak before an audience improved. I gained leadership skills as well as experience.” Along with serving as a dedicated volunteer at Daybreak, a resource center for the homeless in Macon that provides critical services, Sharon is also preparing to apply to law school. It was a Mercer classmate, she says, who suggested a law degree would be beneficial in her goal to launch a residential shelter for Macon’s most marginalized populations. Additionally, she is working with former classmates and professors at Mercer to produce a Daybreak-branded book, Daybreak: Creating Community. More than just awarding her a degree, Sharon says, Mercer helped her draw a map to a future she hadn’t counted on – one filled with an exciting new set of challenges and discoveries around every corner and curve. “Mercer has a great Liberal Arts studies program,” she says. “If you want an education that will transform your life, you should try it.”

Out From the Shadows

The offspring of five famous artists come together on a Macon stage to swap stories about their musical roots, carrying on the family legacy, and coming into their own as performers. - By Stacey Norwood Though a pounding gullywasher has given way to a light summer sprinkle, I am crossing my fingers and praying to the parking space gods for mercy as I frantically search for a spot within shouting distance of Piedmont Brewery & Kitchen. It’s just past high noon on this drizzly day in downtown Macon - I don’t even own an umbrella, and I’m late, so late, for a very important date. When I finally rush inside the restaurant and breathlessly ask the hostess to be directed to Otis Redding III’s table, she stares at me sort of blankly for a second. “There’s some guy sitting around the corner,” she says, pointing in to the far right. “Could be him.” Turns out, the unassuming gentleman in the black tee and jeans waiting quietly at his table is, in fact, the namesake son of one of the greatest musical icons to ever grace the stage or write a song. I have no idea how I thought a bona fide member of music royalty would behave or present himself, but there is no three-piece suited entourage in sight, no dark sunglasses to fend off the prying eyes of other diners, no high-stepping manner or frosty glare to greet the unpunctual, rain-wilted visage appearing before him. Otis the third is just one helluva nice, down-to-earth guy, from what I can tell. Fresh from his “humbling time” atop a tractor tending to 30 of the 300 or so acres at his parents’ Jones County ranch, he is nonetheless reveling me with stories of being “star-struck” by meeting James Brown and Stanley Clarke – of meeting Phil Collins and thinking what a “regular guy” he was, and then there was that time Tommy of Motley Crue personally introduced him to Angus Young. 12 SEPTEMBER 1 - 15, 2017

While Otis the third is also a person who counts among his life stories once being flown to New York for his birthday by Carly Simon, he is ultimately, at 53, a man who has “learned to accept reality.” “I’m the son of a legend,” he says, emphasizing the word “son” ever so slightly. A blues guitarist and performer himself, it’s hard to gauge just what that inflection is conveying. Otis the third clears up that unspoken question licketysplit. As a musician, the Redding name has been “both a blessing and a curse,” he says, quickly adding, “I call it more good than bad. I’d rather them jokers wishing they was me than the other way around.” It’s that life experience - amazing moments as well as

He is one of five performers, each the child or grandchild of a famous musician, scheduled to take the stage at the historic Douglass Theatre on Sept. 9 for American Shadows: Experience the Stories, Music and Legacy. Other musicians appearing on the bill are: Heather Hayes, daughter of Isaac Hayes; Tre Twitty, grandson of Conway Twitty; Keisha Jackson, daughter of Millie Jackson; and the J.A.M.P. Band, founded by DeAnna Brown-Thomas, daughter of James Brown. The J.A.M.P. Band is made up of students attending the James Brown Academy of Musik Pupils, a grant and gift-funded academy based in Augusta. Educational consultants and music educators from across the country collaborate on giving aspiring young musicians a chance to foster their natural talents. “My father always talked about how important it was to teach young people music and how to play instruments,” DeAnna says. “Music saved him, and although he was not afforded an education, he knew that it could save a young soul,” Returning to the city where her father got his start as a musician is especially meaningful, DeAnna adds. “Macon was the beginning for dad. He always gave Macon credit - even in his song Make it Funky he called Macon ‘The big “M!’” He also recorded his first hit Please, Please, Please at WIBB. So yes, I am very happy to come to Macon and bring our talented students for this awesome show.” CONTINUED ON NEXT PAGE

A lengthy, congenial and altogether provocative conversation with Keisha from her Atlanta home reveals not only did she inherit her mother’s pipes, she has also fallen heir to R&B singer Millie Jackson’s famously outspoken style. “To know my mother is to know she is going to say how she feels,” Keisha says, from her Atlanta home. “She’s not going to give you the politically correct answer - she is straight, no chaser.” L: Keisha & Millie Jackson

Though diverse in their personal histories and chosen musical genres, the featured performers in American Shadows have one thing in common. Each is privy to an insider’s understanding that the golden apple of fame can be as bitter as it is sweet.

Out From the Shadows I’m Not an Amazing Singer

Tre Twitty had never even met Otis the third when he accepted the invitation to appear in American Shadows. In fact he still hasn’t – but he was intrigued by the concept, he says. “I love the fact that he does his own thing when he doesn’t have to do that. He does his own thing because that’s what’s he into,” Tre says, speaking from his family’s home in the Mississippi Delta. “He seems to have a very ambitious vision.” Otis the third reached out to him through mutual contacts, he says, and asked him to appear on the bill and perform a couple of his late grandfather’s hits. “I’ve got two songs right now – It’s Only Make Believe, which was kind of Conway’s first big hit, and Rainy Night in Georgia – the last thing my he ever did before he passed away.” Though he lives and works full-time in Nashville, Tre doesn’t describe his music as part of the “Twitty brand.” Calling himself a true Southern Rock musician, Tre counts Metallica and Lynyrd Skynyrd among his musical influences, adding that he is nonetheless a “tremendous admirer” of Conway’s impressive catalogue. “I got to know him through his music, and from hearing stories from my aunts and uncles and Dad’s, I happen to be a huge admirer of his career and his work ethic and the way he presented himself,” Tre says, adding that though he is “amazingly proud” of his grandfather’s legacy, he isn’t trying to follow in his footsteps. “I’m not an amazing singer, that’s not my thing. I love all things creative – I work as a photographer, and I’m interested in shooting videos, movies … music is just another form of creativity to me,” he says. “Conway was obsessed with music, he loved it. I don’t have that same burning ambition.”

Take the Bitter With the Sweet

Though diverse in their personal histories and chosen musical genres, the featured performers in American Shadows have one thing in common. Each is privy to an insider’s understanding that the golden apple of fame can be as bitter as it is sweet. It’s a lesson Keisha Jackson learned early on. A lengthy, congenial and altogether provocative conversation with Keisha from her Atlanta home reveals not only did she inherit her mother’s pipes, she has also fallen heir to R&B singer Millie Jackson’s famously outspoken style. “To know my mother is to know she is going to say how she feels,” Keisha says, from her Atlanta home. “She’s not going to give you the politically correct answer - she is straight, no chaser.” Though one of many musicians to play sold-out shows in Apartheid-era South Africa, it was Millie Jackson who drew international ire when she 14 SEPTEMBER 1 - 15, 2017

declined to cancel several performances in 1980, responding instead with, “I’m not a politician. And I am not going to mix my career with politics. All I want is the money.” It was the quote heard round the world, and the fall-out that followed included protests in the U.S. as well as in South Africa, despite the fact the songstress refused to play two shows there – one for white audiences and another for black fans who, under Apartheid curfew laws, couldn’t attend evening performances. “She broke barriers over there,” Keisha says. “She wasn’t the only act that did that, but she was one of them.” Keisha, who started singing back-up for her mother at 15, recalls years of being hustled into venues and backstage under heavy security, and witnessing her mother’s lambaste from both sides. The daughter of a Georgia sharecropper made good, the elder Jackson defended her decision to let the show go on in a 1982 Rolling Stone article, saying, “American blacks who are forgotten here have the chance to go there and make some money.” The R&B singer nonetheless found herself remaining at the center of global controversy, reviled by activists on two continents. “The freedom she displayed…I’m so glad she did it - so thankful. Because i know what it looks like to be free,” Keisha says. With the polarizing events of recent weeks stemming from a white nationalist-led charge on Charlottesville, VA – a deadly spectacle that claimed the lives of three people, shrouded a city in mourning, and left a nation reeling when the President condemned protesters “on both sides,” it’s hard not see a few similarities between then and now. Especially given the venue of the upcoming Macon show – a Jim Crow-era theatre built by a wealthy African-American entrepreneur as a haven for black performers and audiences. A venue that, not for nothing, is located just a few city blocks away from a Confederate monument. When I ask Keisha if she see saw those same parallels, or if I’m making “something out of nothing,” she laughs (kindly) and tells me “yes, I think you are,” in no uncertain terms. Soul topics and sore topics aside, what the Sept. 9 show hopefully will offer, she says, is the kind of healing and the “beautiful distraction” that music offers. Not to mention deeply personal, first-hand narratives in an intimate setting of those nearest and dearest to some of the country’s most beloved artists. “We’re not sending each other scripts of what we’re going to say,” she says, “Otis just asked us to send photos and bios and little histories of what we’ve done in our career. We’re just gonna be telling stories and singing songs.”

Sunday, August 13th is yet another exceptionally hot day in Macon, Georgia. On days like this, you expect every sensible human being to be out of sight and indoors, basking in the AC and inhaling ice tea, or whatever it is that us Southerners are suppose to drink. You certainly do not expect to see a swarm of people gathered on a sun-drenched hillside, but that’s exactly what I find when I reach the top of Coleman Hill on Sunday evening. Who are all of these people? No, they are not masochists but Maconites, and Maconites show up to support local music, rain, shine, or sizzling summer heat. Second Sunday is a gathering place for these dedicated listeners and lovers of good music. On the second Sunday of each month from April through October, one band takes the stage on Coleman Hill, Macon’s favorite sloping park, singing the sun to sleep from 6:00 PM until 8:00 PM. Hosted by Bragg Jam, Second Sunday is an extension of the annual concert crawl, a continuation of the live music and community that Maconites know and love. It is also free and kid-friendly; no babysitter or pit stop at the ATM required. My husband and I park on Mulberry Street, which is at the bottom of Coleman Hill. I regret this as soon as we start trudging up the grassy incline. It is hot with a capital H-O-T, and walking in this humidity feels like swimming upstream in a river of steam. The music meets us half way, encouraging us, urging us on, up, up, and away. Once we reach the top, a crowd of sweaty strangers comes into view. Stretching across the side of the hill, they are fanning themselves ceaselessly as they watch the band below. Hank Vegas is the band of the month, and I am not quite sure what to expect from them, their online bio seems intentionally mystifying. They describe themselves as “Andy Warhol’s honky-tonk band.” I cannot decide whether this conveys a lot or nothing at all. Their genre is listed as Americana, which could also mean a number of different things. Dovetail recently added a “Hank Vegas Burger” to their menu, but much to my discontent, the delicious-sounding toppings do not suggest anything about the band’s sound. All the punctual Second Sunday attendees have already

Second Sunday Concert Series

staked their claim on the shady side of the hill. We join the unfortunate tardy masses in the sun. I throw my blanket into the air and it falls flat, a pitiful, deflated-looking square instead of the impressive sail one fantasizes about. There is no wind to catch it. My husband props open his chair. We sit. We sweat. We listen. I am happy to be here. While bringing your own seating to Second Sunday is optional, the grass as good a seat as any, I strongly recommend bringing a cooler with your cold beverage of choice. For those who come unprepared, however, The Brick has set up camp, selling food and drinks at the very top of the hill. When the band takes a short break, I take a short hike up to the tent with a friend who has just told me about their Manmosas, a cocktail consisting of vodka, champagne, and orange juice. It is as good as it sounds. Back at my blanket, I am surrounded by familiar faces, a group of friends having hitched their own blankets and chairs to ours. The sun is descending and everyone seems

to be relaxing into their wet-with-sweat clothing. Laidback conversations accompany Hank Vegas as they continue to sing and strum and strut on stage. I am still not sure how to classify their sound—I do not think it wants to be pinned down—but I am enjoying the cryptic allure. At times it is upbeat, but in an unexpected way. The songs are clearly heartfelt, yet deceptively soft. It is the kind of music you want spend some one-on-one time with. In front of the stage there are a couple of kids running around and dancing poorly. This is a consistent characteristic of Second Sunday from what I can tell. They are happy and free and apparently immune to the heat. They remind me that it is okay to enjoy yourself in public, that it is not uncool to have a good time. I find myself wishing that a sprinkler system would suddenly appear in front of the stage. I want to run through the water and dance to songs I do not yet know the words to. I want to soak up summertime in my city. I want to play.

| Meet Lucious Hawthorne From Macon, GA Occupation: Master Bike Mechanic | By Renee Corwine Lucious Hawthorne has been working on bicycles longer than many of you readers have been alive. So long, in fact, that he’s known around here simply as “Lou from the bike shop.” I first met Lou about 15 years ago when I started riding mountain bikes. He, along with Nate Embry, were the go-to guys when your bike needed fixing. Every time I’ve been in the shop, Lou’s been quick to share a good story about life in Macon. I sat down with him recently – at Bike Tech, of course – to hear a few more stories about growing up here, his love of sandwiches, and being known as “that black guy” at the bike shop. You never went to school to be a bike mechanic, so who taught you how to work on bikes? I’ve been doing it all my life. That’s all I ever done. I used to work on bikes in my grandmamma’s house when I needed to be getting ready for school. I used to get grease on the carpet because at night I couldn’t be outside, so I’d sneak it in the house and put it in my bedroom and start working on it. I had grease and ball bearings rolling all over the floor. … I had to buy her some new carpet. When I was a kid, we couldn’t afford bikeshop bikes. I could go to the junkyard and piece one together, and it would last a long time. … That’s how I got around back then, so I could cut grass. I used to ride my bike from my momma’s house over to my Uncle Lucious’ house to cut grass once a week. He did 22 years in the service; he wasn’t gonna pick you up and bring you. You had to man up and ride the bike if you wanted to make some money; he wasn’t gonna pacify you. I had to cut the front and the side, then he’d make me a big ole sandwich. I’d eat that and then it’d be hard to cut the back. See,

I learned how to make sandwiches from him. I used to work at Subway. (Showing me photos of sandwiches … and vodka … and bikes on tractors … on his phone) I love making sandwiches. I used to work next door at Subway when I worked here at the bike shop. I’d walk right over there after being here. I always worked between two and three jobs all my life. Why is that? I was doing it for my family and to make my house payment. I didn’t want my wife to worry about it. I used to work here, clean buildings three nights a week and cut grass on Mondays. Tell me about your family. I’ve been married (to Jackie Hawthorne) for 25 years. Our anniversary is Aug. 22. I’m getting nervous. I wanna do something nice for her. I’m buying a ring from Bashinski. I think she’s getting nervous about me sneaking around. I told her I’m getting something made for her and it’s real nice. But now I’m getting nervous. What happened is, I put money down on the ring, then my AC broke. I got fleas in my house. My car tore up. I had to pay my truck note, my house note and all the other bills and I just blew a gasket. Everything’s going wrong. I can’t wait for our anniversary to get here. You just had a birthday too, right? I turned 51. (The guys at Bike Tech) did a surprise birthday party for me. It freaked me out because they’d never done anything like that before. I’d never been done like that. … When they do you like that, it’s hard to come back from that, it takes a while to get back normal. You’re just so busy trying to play cop, to see what’s going on, it freaked me out. It was probably funny to the guys though. I’m sure they just wanted to do it since you’ve been working here so long. What’s it been like, over the years, work-

ing at different bike shops in Macon? I started when I was 17. It was Dixon bicycles then. It was a little racial back then, in the mid1980s. White people didn’t want me to work on their bikes. I guess they didn’t think I knew what I was doing … because I never went to school. It changed in the last 20 years. Nate said when I was (working at) Breakaway for those four years, everyone come in (to Bike Tech) saying, “Where’s Lou at?” The customers were coming in for me. He said every day they’d come in looking for me, “Where that black guy at?” They didn’t know my name, just, “Where that black guy?” Now, they want me. They realized I’m nice to people and I try to take care of them. How do you feel about people knowing you as “Lou at the bike shop?” I don’t know, I guess I feel real good because I worked so hard those 10 months, for six days a week (when the bike shop was changing ownership recently). It hurt me to do it; I was neglecting my wife. Now, she’s working two jobs. I’m trying to get her another job so she can have regular hours, so we can spend time together. And you have three children, right? Three girls, Jessica, Kindeja, Kenyatta; and a grandbaby. So how are kids today different from when you were growing up? A lot of kids not getting outside any more. We got pushed outside. Your parents would be like, “Get on outta here. You’re not gonna sit here and stare at grown folks’ faces and learn grown folks’ business.” These days, kids sit in a room and know everybody’s business. Back then, when it was grown people talk, it was get your ass outside: “Want some water? There’s a hose outside. Let it run; it’ll cool off.” How about this, a couple weeks ago (a friend and long-time cyclist) came in here. She got

three little boys. They come in here and tear the shop up; they been outta control since their daddy died. And I just got tired of it. So I came around the corner, and took my belt off, and it was a big ole belt, I said, “Y’all come over here and sit down. Y’all embarrassing your momma!” I said, “I’ll put the belt on y’all.” And she was like, “Get ‘em Lucius, get ‘em!” I said, “Y’all know better. You got better home training than that.” I said, “If your daddy was living you wouldn’t be acting like this. He’d tear y’alls butt up. Y’all need to straighten up. Y’all embarrassing your momma.” I was at Subway about a week after that happened. There were two little girls in there with their dad, say about 9 and 6. Dad was buying them two kids’ meals; he didn’t buy himself nothing. So he bought their sandwiches and came over here looking at bikes, a lot of people do, and the older one was like, “I’m ready to go, ready to go.” I said, “Why you so mean to your daddy? He just bought you lunch. Go sit over there and eat on the sofa.” They didn’t want to do it! He couldn’t even look at a bike. So I told them about those three boys, and those girls just ran to the truck. And the daddy just laughed. I bet when he got home he said to his wife, “If these kids get outta control, I’m taking them to that black guy over there at the bike shop.” My uncle used to whoop us. I mean it hurt. I was crying … but I told my uncle a few years ago, I appreciate those ass whoopings, it made me a better man. What else do you want to tell me about living here in Macon. Renee, I could tell you a lot about Macon, but you ain’t got the time though. I got some Budweiser over there though, we could eat Subway, drink some beers. … After 34 years I got a hundred stories. 23

Cher once said, “Until you’re ready to look foolish, you’ll never have the possibility of being great.” Fooligans seems to not only take a literal nod to Cher’s insight within their name, but upon meeting the trio, it’s soon understood these guys have an unabashed exuberance for being true to themselves and their music. Charlie Wilson (bass/lead vocals), Wyatt Pyles (guitar/vocals), and Colby Collins (drums) will be taking the stage at Grant’s Lounge Friday, September 8th along with The Georgia Flood. Fooligans talked about their influences from opera to Metallica, recording their debut album with Damon Moon in his new studio in Atlanta, and melding together as a band. What sets your band apart in the Macon music scene? Colby: We’ve got fire. We sound like Black Keys, White Stripes, but we play like a thrash metal band speeding everything up live. It’s hilarious. We get out there and we get all this adrenaline in us. Charlie: And I think we’re all comfortable looking dumb. What do you think is different about every member of your band that in some ways that makes your band work cohesively? Colby: Well you got blues, metal, and an Indie kind of guy. And all of that mixes together into this weird new thing.

The Fooligans

How do you usually go about writing music? Wyatt: It just kind of happens. Charlie always has a rhythm. He’l have some chords, I’ll have some chords. (Charlie) will have some lyrics. Charlie: I have things that I think of when I’m trying to sleep. I just can’t get it out of my head. I take my iPhone and I’ll turn the voice memo on and I’ll put it really close to my face so I don’t wake my roommates up. And I’ll softly and seductively sing into my phone. What music influences come to mind while writing? Charlie: (Colby) loves Metallica. He’s got like a million Metallica shirts. Colby: I fangirl over their singer for some reason. Wyatt: I like The Strokes. Their riffs are just so tight and cool. But I like the feeling too, because I grew up on the blues and The Allman Brothers. And it’t like jamming; you get caught in it. So it’s somewhere in the middle there. Charlie: For me I’d say I did a lot of classical stuff for a while. I went from classical guitar to Opera. Then I moved to Nashville for three years. I toured around with some other bands. I got into a lot of folk music, which was awesome. I never experienced that where I grew up. It was really cool traveling around and seeing real folk musicians that play it from their heart . . .When we started this group I had a very specific sound in my mind that I wanted to obtain. And it seemed to not only happen,

but it happened in a way that was organic. What do you think that specific sound is? Charlie: I think it’s grunge pop. Wyatt: It’s an original sound. We can’t say it’s completely brand new because it isn’t. You can definitely hear the influences. But it’s not completely the same as everything else going around. Charlie: I do take pride in that. And we’re working on an album right now. We’ve been up in Atlanta right now. We’ve had a few sessions up there. Hopefully we’re going to be finishing up in our next session at Standard Electric Recorders Co. Recently what has been your favorite show that you’ve attended and why? Charlie: Shaky Knees. The band that I saw that kind of changed how I felt a little bit just about that whole day in general was Pinegrove. It's just really honest. He seems like a very genuinely nice guy. He emits that from the stage. Even when I listened to his stuff after, I was like damn he’s so nice. I like it when musicians aren’t trying to be dicks. I know that that is a pretty common thing. And I know I can walk down that path quite a bit [laughter]. Colby: That Hindsight release show was so fire. I have never been so inspired in my entire life. They had just released their album and they played it front to back. Those were my friends up there and they had the whole place packed out.

AND FOOTBALL Originally published October 5, 2016 - By Karen Gibson

When I was growing up in North Carolina, Saturdays were all about… golf. Or, as I got older, soccer. We’d get up, throw on uniforms, and my mother would drive us out to the fields for games while my father would throw on his “uniform” and head to the golf course. Every so often, there might be a football game that would flash by the television screen during the commercials of whatever golf tournament came on in the afternoon, but mostly my childhood was narrated by the soft, whispering blandness of PGA announcers, punctuated by the brief snores of my father. So when I arrived in Georgia back in 2004, the idea of watching an entire day of football seemed beyond boring. What was fun about that? An entire day of sitting on the sofa? Watching other people do athletic things? No thank you. But the group of guys I knew in law school seemed to think it was worth doing, so I dutifully made the trek downtown, parked my car, and walked with them over to Paul and Jim’s house, where a big screen television took up the majority of an otherwise peaceful porch, and the house smelled alternatively like Low Country Boil or some form of smoked meat. That first Saturday was something out of a novel for me. Everyone wearing red or black, everyone with some form of UGA coozie wrapped around a beer, and everyone with deep and meaningful thoughts about how to run a defense or how to call an offense. I remember sitting and taking it all in, like an anthropologist in a foreign land… this was Football country, and I was just a visitor. My sports watching life to that point had consisted solely of UNC Basketball, so this idea that fall could hold anything more than the promise of basketball around the corner was both inspiring and daunting. The days would start around eleven, with all our friends arriving in rounds, carrying covered dishes and lugging large coolers full of iced

beers up the steps to the porch. The food would be spread around the counters and conversation would revolve around who would start at quarterback and which coach should be canned before the start of the next season. It was strange and beautiful, this world I’d been introduced to. A world where Georgia Football means more than just a Saturday afternoon game… it means a countdown that starts sometime in mid-summer and a conversation that runs well into spring practice. It means planning a week ahead for who will bring what to the tailgate and coordinating who is responsible for shielding the Georgia fan from the Florida fan for a long week in late October. My Saturdays became something to look forward to, not because of cleaning house or running to Target, but because it meant an escape from the Sunday through Friday monotony to a world where time was measured in yards, and life slowed to allow every sip of beer to matter, every inch of a run to resonate with the crowd. I learned that first Saturday back in 2004 that College Football in the South is about more than sports; it’s a microcosm of Southern resilience. A warm reminder that we understand better than most that it matters until it doesn’t… it hurts until it is better… it is a beautiful, magical win, but the next loss still hovers around the corner. So began my now twelve year love affair with college football… a love that encompasses the ridiculous amounts of smoked meat (which I can’t eat), the perfectly placed appetizer plates, the superstitious rearrangement of seating, the excuse to congregate with friends and family, the first-name basis with players and coaches, the agony of defeat… the ecstacy of a last second win. There’s nothing like it any where else I’ve lived… not in North Carolina, not in Florida, not in Virginia. This tradition seems unique to the deep South, a throwback to the days of sitting on the porch, waving at neighbors, drinking cold soda from a glass bottle.

Theoths Mamm Austin, TX trio playing The Hummingbird Stage & Taproom September 9th!

station and you talked about how you had all met at South By Southwest a couple years ago, can you share that story and experience with us? Michael: So, three of us, David, Tyler [Rush, bassist], and I had been playing music together since high school with various bands, and we were playing with a different drummer at the time, and we were being a backing band for a Blues guy out of Dallas, we opened for him but he needed a band and asked if we could jump and be his band, and mid set, he asked one of his friends, a drummer, to switch out with our drummer at the time, and that was Tim, so, we met Tim and were jamming with him before we even knew his name. That was a cool experience.

Out of Austin, Texas, The Mammoths play an irresistible blend of Soul and Rock. The band, who was last in town in February, will be rocking The Bird Stage Saturday, September 9 with Voodoo Fix, out of Los Angeles. We were able to catch up with three of the four members of the band, lead singer David Kapsner, lead guitarist Michael Jekot, and percussionist Tim Durand to talk about their current tour and what we can look forward to in the future.

You released your five track EP Golden Spell in early January this year, tell me about the making of that project. Tim: That was a fun project, it was with Omar Vallejo at 512 Studios, and we put a lot of work into it, but we just recorded three new singles with Chris Smith, aka Frenchie, and we’re releasing those one month at a time. We just put one out a couple days ago called “My Drug”.

It’s good to be having you guys back in Macon on Saturday, September 9 at The Hummingbird Stage & Taproom, what did y’all enjoy most about playing there the last time you were in town? David: Smoking cigarettes inside [laughing], just kidding. No, it was a good crowd, we were pretty well received, People Exist opened for us and they were really good too. You guys do a really good job of promoting shows out there, too, so, that was really fun for us.

Yeah, I was just about to ask you about “My Drug” which we debuted on the air on Friday; tell me about that track. David: Yeah, thanks for doing that, man. That one’s kind of been in the works for a little while, we were testing it out on tour since back in February when we were coming through Macon. We were playing it a lot differently on tour, and kind of came back and, we had this producer who recorded us, and he told us to speed it up, add a lot of background vocals, and make it a little catchier, so that’s what we did in the studio and we’re really happy with the final product. If I remember correctly, when you were on the air with us

The last time you were in town, we had you up to play at the 30 SEPTEMBER 1 - 15, 2017

in February, you played two tracks. One was “So Cold” (off Golden Spell) and I believe you played “My Drug” too. David: We did, it was a lot slower, and different, but that was an acoustic version of that song. Y’all are on a big tour right now, you’re hitting the southeast, then heading up to the northeast before coming back down south and heading home to Texas, are there any cities or venues you’re particularly excited about playing these next couple months? Michael: American Beauty in New York, Midtown, looks and sounds like an amazing place, heard some good things from some friends out there, so I’m pretty excited about that. David: The Hummingbird, though, too. That place was awesome, we really loved it. What’s the plan when y’all get back to Austin in the middle of October? Thinking about getting into the studio or just taking a break for a while? David: There are no breaks. We’ll probably be releasing the second song closer to the end of tour, release the full EP later down the road. We have some shows lined up in Austin for November, but we’ll probably get back in the studio. We’re actually heading back Southeast in December, we’ll be the backing band for a band Acid Tongue, we’ll be opening up for him and then staying on stage and playing with him. So we’ll probably be back in December at the Hummingbird, I would assume. Be sure to check out The Mammoths’ EP Golden Spell on iTunes and Spotify, and their new single “My Drug” on their SoundCloud page!

“Masterful players on a Grail-like search for the cosmic heart of California.” - MOJO”…good-time music on an end-times mission.” - ROLLING STONE”...trailblazing a wonderfully refreshing slice of ‘Rock N Roll’ music.” - AQUARIUM DRUNKARDThe Chris Robinson Brotherhood are on the road in 2017 supporting their fourth studio album, ‘Anyway You Love, We Know How You Feel,’ and its follow up companion EP, ‘If You Lived Here, You Would Be Home By Now,’ both out via Robinson’s Silver Arrow Records. Tracks have already been laid for another new studio album and ‘Betty’s Blends, Vol. 3’ live release later this year. Gathering in northern California on the side of a mountain overlooking the foggy Pacific Ocean to capture what would become their latest studio offerings, the band channeled the natural majesty of their surroundings into the recordings. Having spent the prior two years touring relentlessly, the CRB were road-tested and in peak form to capture their kinetic chemistry and immersive sound, which Uncut Magazine called, “...a celebration of how American musical traditions can be at once honored and psychedelically expanded.” Rolling Stone raved that their album was “electrifying…boast[ing] a vintage rock vibe that’s at once quirky, trippy, soulful and downright magnetic!” Robinson is as energized as he’s ever been in what’s already been a long and historic career as one of rock music’s most prolific and successful songwriters and front men. Joined by guitarist Neal Casal, keyboardist Adam MacDougall, bassist Jeff Hill and drummer Tony Leone, The CRB are on the verge of their most inspired and prolific year yet.

the 1970s, you might be tempted to dig into that catalog. Jim Croce (shame on you if you have to pull out your phone to identify that name) wrote some of the most clever, direct, and honest songs to ever emit from a radio (further shame if you don't know every word to Operator.) He died in a plane crash in 1973 when AJ was only 2-years-old. Jim was on tour and about to release the album I Got a Name, but he'd already begun writing his next project-- or at least one song. “Name of The Game” was an unfinished bootlegged demo that gets the all-star treatment it deserves from AJ and company-- Vince Gill and Colin Linden even trade licks on Jim's actual 1933 Gibson LO. Leon Russell had originally planned to appear on Just Like Medicine before his passing, but he did co-write “The Heart That Makes Me Whole” with AJ. The record has a comfort and immediacy about it that only a soul album could posses. Jim Croce was only 30 when he died. At 45, AJ has already spent 25 of his years recording and touring with the greatest-- B.B. King, Aretha Franklin, The Neville Brothers, Willie Nelson, and even his hero Ray Charles. AJ Croce is a piano man. He can lead the night or ease off to the side and get you where you want to be. He's got a name, but he's got his own voice. His songs are therapy. AJ sees music for what is-- a cure all for the soul.

CK OF RO Show Sp o or ns

AJ Croce’s newest release, Just Like Medicine, started with a collaboration between Croce and Dan Penn. You may not know that name, but you know his music. Dan Penn co-wrote “Do Right Woman, Do Right Man” with Chips Moman for Aretha Franklin, and he produced “The Letter” for Alex Chilton and the Box Tops. Dan Penn wrote, recorded, and produced soul music in its 1960s heyday at American Studios in Memphis and FAME Studios in Muscle Shoals. You could try to write any kind of song you wanted with Dan, but it’s gonna be a soul song. As it turned out, Penn’s home studio in Nashville was also ideal for the project AJ had in mind: an honest-to-goodness, live-to-tape, soul album. So, AJ got a producer and a studio— then what? If it’s recording and producing soul music, the mind must consider Steve Cropper. Want to make an analog record with cats that can get it done in one take? Get the Muscle Shoals Horns! And if he ain’t busy, why not get Swamper David Hood to move the back beat along? What about some powerful harmonies? The Reverend Sam McCrary of the Fairfield Four had four daughters… The McCrary Sisters could make a milk cow sound like Marvin Gaye. Get Bryan Owings on drums. He’s worked with Bonnie Bishop, Justin Townes Earle, Buddy Miller, Shelby Lynne, and Colin Linden—yeah, get Colin Linden to play guitar too! And when in Nashville… Is Vince Gill available?
