[Show Journal] A Night at the Music Farm with Built To Spill

Written by on 2013/11/06 in Show Journal, Show Reviews with 0 Comments

Last Tuesday Built To Spill played at downtown Charleston’s Music Farm with support from Genders and Slam Dunk. Genders started out with a bang, bringing their Portland-based rock and roll sound to the Holy City. I’m usually pretty skeptical about opening bands, but Genders far exceeded my expectations. They sound a bit progressive, but there’s […]

Dark Room – 9.10.13 Alexa Woodward has a knack for producing a blend of melancholy, yet carefree Americana. She opened the evening to a standing-room-only crowd at Dark Room and was joined by Kevin Mavis and Lauren Stapleton of Mountain Homes for part of her set. There’s an air of adolescent mischief and silliness that […]

During Bowie’s White Duke era, they say his diet consisted of only cocaine, red bell peppers, and milk. Frank Zappa was rumored to consume just salami, coffee, and beer. As I scanned the snack foods at our convenience store pit stop on our way to Charlotte, I made my choice. I’ll be the eccentric enigma […]
