Show Review: Lucero at the Handlebar 3/20/14

Show Review: Lucero at the Handlebar 3/20/14

Written by on 2014/03/26 in Show Reviews with 0 Comments

“I heard that when we wake up tomorrow, it will be Friday.”  This was not only an accurate statement by Lucero bassist, John C. Stubblefield, but it was kind of the summation of the sentiment in the room at the Handlebar last Thursday night.  There was this feeling that something awesome was happening and we should […]

Iron & Wine Headline Acoustic Evening at Charleston Music Hall

Written by on 2014/02/25 in Reviews, Show Reviews with 0 Comments

It’s a given that any Iron and Wine show is going to be fantastic; heart wrenching, hilarious, and heartwarming all at the same time. Ten minutes before the show started, I found out that The Secret Sisters of Muscle Shoals, AL were gearing up to open for Chapin born and bred master heartstring puller Sam […]

[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 […]

[Show Review] City & Colour and Lucy Rose

Written by on 2013/10/01 in Show Reviews with 0 Comments

I pretty much went to this concert (at the Orange Peel in Asheville, NC) to see Lucy Rose as I’m still a little bitter towards Dallas Green a.k.a City & Colour for breaking up one of my favorite bands a few years ago. I never was super into screamy music but there was something about Alexisonfire […]

A Review of Music Midtown 2013

Written by on 2013/09/23 in Show Reviews with 0 Comments

Let me tell you a bit about my history with Arctic Monkeys. As a teenager, I was completely obsessed with the pop-punk genre of music; frequenting Warped Tour and sporting neon at all times. At the time, it was rather tragic. However, one summer while visiting my family in the UK, a young and exciting […]

Listen to Yes I Know I’ve Loved this World When Austin Crane played the release show for his album Place at the Table at New Brookland Tavern years ago everyone in the audience threw roses on stage after the last song. It was both an emotional and touching moment, well deserved by Crane who has […]

[Show Journal] Local Natives Finally Made it to Charleston

Written by on 2013/06/21 in News, Show Journal, Show Reviews with 0 Comments

I’ve been a fan of the Los Angeles-based indie band Local Natives since their first album Gorilla Manor released in 2010—“Who Knows Who Cares” was my own personal anthem during freshman year of college. So imagine my excitement when I hear that they would be playing at Bonnaroo AND in Charleston within the span of a week. […]

What did you do on Valentine’s Day? Go out to a nice dinner? See a movie with a hot date? Or did you just sit in front of your television with a few bottles of wine and the cast of Parks and Rec to keep you company? While all of these scenarios sound fantastic, I’m […]

Clarence Greenwood, more commonly known by his stage name Citizen Cope, played to a sold out audience at the Music Farm this past Saturday. His enthusiastic and energized band perfectly balanced out his calm, cool, and collected demeanor, making for a great night of reggae-alt-soul-pop tunes. Having heard mixed reviews of his live show, I […]

[Show Review] A Silent Age and I am Carpenter at One Unit

Written by on 2012/07/24 in Show Reviews with 0 Comments

The question I was asked most at One Unit last night was “What are you doing here?”. I’m not exactly a staple at hardcore shows, and for the last two months I haven’t been attending that many shows at all. Being away, I realize that it’s not the live music that I miss the most. […]

If you weren’t at 5 Points Pub last Wednesday to see Heyrocco and Civil Twilight put on a show, then I feel very sorry for you. Both bands came to play (literally) and both bands won the crowd over. Heyrocco started off their set with “The American Tourist” and then went on with “Whales,” from […]
