993429_10151996702142780_1635479264_nI initially wrote about Skinful Halloween awhile back but as the location kept changing, I decided to rewrite the feature with the final details. My vet and friend, Dr. Brian King, has put on this party for 13 years and it is by far one of the best parties in Charleston. This year the event and organizers need the support of the fans as costs to put on this party has escalated after permitting issues in Hollywood, then an Edisto Plantation got pulled, followed by issues from the city and Music Farm backing out. If you have ever hosted an event, then you know what is involved in overhead for renting a venue, permits, vendors, musical talent, tents, security, medical, set ups and so much more. So here are the details….

Skinful Halloween 2013 hosted by Flavor Flav will be held on October 26th 2013 at Brick House Kitchen from 2pm-2am. Music will be provided by Ozomatli, Dirt Nasty, Blowfly, The Dubplates and more plus DJs, circus acts, burlesque and dance, art, video mapping, a silent disco, massive laser light show and the sickest lighting and sound set-up in the Southeast. They will be limiting the amount of guests and keeping the party contained inside the fenced in area. Coolers are welcome. The party will start at 2pm and will abide by the 11pm noise ordinance. To keep the buzz going, guest can enjoy a silent disco from 11pm till 2am. (I did this after Widespread Panic in Mexico a few years back and it is a nice alternative to keep the party going.)

Music Line Up:
3:00pm-5pm: The Dubplates with Zumjay
5:15pm-6:30pm: Cee Know The Doodlebug from The Digable Planets and The CFO Band
6:45pm till 7:45pm: Blowfly
8pm till 9:45pm: Ozomatli
10pm till 11pm: Dirt Nasty

Silent Disco Schedule:
11pm till 12am on Channel A: Jake B vs KlipArt or Channel B: FullHass
12am till 1am  on Channel A: DJ Fred Krugrrr or Channel B: Circe and Rage United
1am till 2am on Channel A: MJ12 or Channel B: DJ Magnetik

There will be some on-site parking plus shuttles, cabs and limos companies running special rates. Even though this a normal weekend concert at Brick House Kitchen, there will be Sheriffs and Private Security. There will also be EMTs on site in case of emergencies.

While this is a rockin’ night, it also benefits the Tanzania Education Foundation and Keepers of the Wild.

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 13, 2013 by Lowcountry Boil

Charleston Music Hall and Awendaw Green are proud to announce the foot stomping, get-out-of-your seat and let loose, evening with Steep Canyon and Shannon Whitworth on Thursday, August 22nd from 8pm until 11pm at the Charleston Music Hall. Doors open at 7pm and advanced tickets are on sale now for $20 – $25 at Etix.com or charge by phone at 1-800-514-3849 or the Charleston Music Hall Box Office at 37 John St.

Asheville, NC, Steep Canyon Rangers are an acoustic Bluegrass quintet. Before embarking on a world tour backing comedian/banjoist Steve Martin, the Rangers were nominated for two International Bluegrass Music awards. The Rangers were also named ‘Emerging Artist of the Year’ at the IBMA awards and they won a grammy for best bluegrass album.

Shannon Whitworth is ready for adventure, and wants to take listeners on a cross-country trek that will leave all preconceptions of banjo-wielding songstresses behind. Starting off as a singer/songwriter for The Bisquit Burners, Whitworth has forged ahead as a swoon-inducing solo artists that has been compared to Emmylou Harris’ Americana days.

Awendaw Green Announces Acoustic Storyteller Barn Jam featuring Zach Deputy

Posted in Sales & Events with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 10, 2013 by Lowcountry Boil

Awendaw Green is proud to present a special Acoustic Storyteller Barn Jam featuring Zach Deputy on Thursday, June 13th at 4853 Highway 17 North. Guests will enjoy music of the man who helped Awendaw Green originally start the Barn Jams in their intimate outdoor listening room setting under the grand oaks at the Sewee Outpost. With doors opening at 7pm and show starting at 8pm, tickets are $10 in advance through eTix or $12 at door. $50 VIP tickets are also available and include a round of Disc Golf with Zach.

Zach Deputy is an island-infused drum and bass gospel ninja soul. On his latest release Another Day, Zach Deputy demonstrates his extraordinary ability to perform and record in multiple contexts and conveys the sensibilities of a mature singer/songwriter. Reflective and introspective, it provides a glimpse at the soul of an artist and the depth of a songwriter. Full of hope and anticipation of the promise of Another Day, a new day, it is a pivotal point in the career of a touring musician heretofore known as a master of live looping and a staple in the grass-roots club and festival circuit.

 A hidden gem up Hwy 17 North, Awendaw Green may just be the coolest music venue in the lowcountry. A low-key and friendly environment with bonfires, food, friends, networking, and the concerts are all centered around  an old barn with a professional sound technician and equipment. Scenic grounds, a relaxed atmosphere and state of the art professional venue make Awendaw Green the place to spread newly created music to fans both old and new through their ever expanding music loving fan base.

Grass in the Hall

March 1st at the Charleston Music Hall

7:30 The BAREFOOT MOVEMENT
8:30 CUMBERLAND RIVER
10:00 TOWN MOUNTAIN

This is a kick off event for the Sweet Grass Music Festival on March 16 and The Charleston Bluegrass Festival on April 5 & 6.

Tickets $10 at eTix, $12 at door

TOWN MOUNTAIN: This Asheville, NC Bluegrass band finds themselves becoming one of the preeminent torchbearers of their craft, facing a promising future. “Centered around strong, soulful vocals, and poised to stay put,” says Woody Platt of the Steep Canyon Rangers, “Town Mountain are true to bluegrass in all the right ways and this new project keeps them firmly connected to the traditions of the genre, while also allowing them to reach out into the broad horizon of string band music. Leave the Bottle comes highly recommended.” Always contributing to the evolution of the bluegrass form, they toss influences as varied as surf-rock, gospel, and honky-tonk country into their field of play.

CUMBERLAND RIVER: This band’s roots have run deep in the Harlan County Kentucky hills for generations. Even with the band’s progressive sound, you can still hear the heritage of traditional bluegrass music in their songs. Watch FX Network’s TV show JUSTIFIED to hear their music.

THE BAREFOOT MOVEMENT: This quartet of immensely talented musicians are from North & South Carolina and Tennessee whose music successfully melds Americana influences with the invigoration of acoustic modern rock and jazz. Their sound simultaneously captures the rustic beauty of old Southern front porch Bluegrass improvisation while being immediately accessible to the modern era.
