We’ve been proud to be a media sponsor of the World Beer Festival. In fact we’re as proud to be involved with the World Beer Festival Columbia since the beginning as we are that more and more local craft brewers are brewing more and more local beer. Brewing as an art is coming into its own here in the Capital City and tasting the work of these artists is always a delight and an adventure.

River Rat Brewery, from Columbia is a new and featured brewer this year.  For 2015, festival organizers and River Rat have partnered to brew a collaboration beer that will only be available to festival patrons as well as at select retailers prior to the festival.

Revelry Brewing from Charleston is also new this year, and will showcase their largest collection of beers ever in Columbia.  Boulevard is very new to S.C. and also to the festival. They are one of the largest breweries in the Unites States and have a fantastic flagship beer in Tank 7 Farmhouse.

South Carolina breweries will be featured again this year.  S.C. breweries include: Conquest Brewing Co., Palmetto Brewing Co., Windy Hill Orchard, Brewery 85 (new), Swamp Cabbage Brewing Co.

Other new breweries include: Big Boss Brewing Co., Blue Point Brewing Co., Natty Greene’s Brewing Co., Coronado Brewing Co., Service Brewing Co., Evil Twin Brewing, Stillwater Artisanal Ales, Off Color Brewing Co., and Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales.

Returning breweries include: Aviator Brewing Co., Lonerider Brewery, Red Hare Brewing Co., Widmere Brothers Brewing, Kona brewing Co., Red Hood Brewery, Woodchuck Cider, Magners Cider, Goose Island Brewing Co., Magic Hat Brewing Co., Stella Artois, Olde Mecklenburg Brewery, the Duck-Rabbit Craft Brewery, Foothills Brewing, Cottonwood/Carolina, Founders Brewing Co., NoDa Brewing Co., Anderson Valley Brewing Co. Allagash Brewing Co., Samuel Smith’s, Lindemans, Westmalle, Pinkus, Guiness Brewery and Sierra Nevada Brewing Co.

“This year is shaping up to have more variety and uniqueness than any previous year,” said Rice.  “Any craft beer lover would love tickets a holiday gift.”

The festival will have more than 200 different varieties of beers to sample from more than 80 different vendors. There will also be specialty cheese and beer pairings, beer education seminars and specialty beer tapings each hour.

Tickets for the World Beer Festival Columbia are on sale now. General admission tickets are $40 and come with a tasting glass and unlimited 2 ounce tastings.  VIP admission tickets are available at $75 and offer access to a private hospitality area including private bathrooms, a bonus selection of rare and unique beers, and a 3-issue subscription to All About Beer Magazine.  Food will also be available for purchase.

The festival will be held on January 17, 2015 and offer two sessions, 12-4 p.m. and 6-10 p.m.  Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased online at www.worldbeerfestival.com, at both Green’s locations, Morganelli’s Party Store, Craft and Draft, and River Rat Brewery.

Chanteuse to Perform at PNC Music Pavillion June 13th – Tix on Sale Saturday AM

10461627_834458906596561_4532758163953838311_n

Multi-platinum selling artist Lana Del Rey has confirmed her first headlining dates of the 2015 Endless Summer Tour. The North American tour, promoted by Live Nation, will see the acclaimed artist playing at her biggest venues to date in support of her latest album ULTRAVIOLENCE (Interscope/Polydor UK).

Lana Del Rey will play PNC Music Pavilion on Saturday June 13, 2015. Tickets go on-sale Saturday Dec. 6 at www.livenation.com, through the Live Nation mobile app, at the PNC Music Pavilion box office, Ticketmaster outlets, or by phone 800-745-3000. More dates will soon be announced.

In recent news, Del Rey contributed two new songs to the soundtrack of Tim Burton’s latest film, Big Eyes, in theaters nationwide on Dec. 25: “Big Eyes,” which she co-wrote with Daniel Heath, and “I Can Fly,” which she co-wrote with Rick Nowels. “I’ve admired Tim Burton’s work for many years and I’m honored to work with him on such a poignant project,” said Del Rey. Lana is also featured on the cover of Maxim’s January/December issue. In October, she played two sold-out shows at Hollywood Forever Cemetery, which the Orange County Register called “electric” and Grantland called “transcendent.”

Lana’s critically acclaimed album ULTRAVIOLENCE debuted at #1 in 15 countries, including the U.S. and the UK, and earned her cover stories in Rolling Stone, The New York Times, Complex and The FADER, among others. It has now sold over 1 million copies worldwide and has been named one of the best albums of 2014 by Rolling Stone, Complex, Stereogum and more. Lana’s first North American tour completely sold-out in minutes, and her festival performances at Coachella, Austin City Limits and more, earned rave reviews. Lana’s Born To Die was certified PLATINUM by the RIAA earlier this year and has now sold over 7 million copies worldwide.

You May Have Noticed Our Searchable Playlist is Down

Or you may have noticed that your old stored bookmark for our stream doesn’t work. Here’s why.

We use several hosting companies to host this website and other Internet services, such as streaming. On the afternoon of the 6th, our Columbia based hosting service lost their server to a crash. It was a bad one. They were providing our audio streams and the processing for our searchable playlist. We scrambled to find another vendor for our stream and in less than 24 hours, we are back up and streaming live. It took a little longer for most of the other directories including TuneIn to pick up the changes, but they did pretty quickly. You’ll have to update your bookmark in your player, either using the Listen Now links above or Listen Live links to the right –>.

The playlist, on the other hand, remains down as long as our hosting services server is down. The news from them is that they are in the process of unpacking and reloading the backup. It’s 1TB in size, so it’s going to take awhile. Or so we are told. Once the playlist is back up, we’ll let you know here, on Facebook and Twitter. You are following us, right?

    Southern Exposure Series: Dolce Suono Ensemble and Soprano Lucy Shelton

    5:30 amUSC School of Music Recital Hall (813 Assembly St)

    Acclaimed singer Lucy Shelton, perhaps contemporary classical’s leading soprano, a “new music diva” with “musicianship, technique and intelligence that are unfailing,” (Boston Globe), Shelton has premiered more than 100 major works by composers that comprise a who’s who of 20th- and 21st-century music, including Elliott Carter, Oliver Knussen, Joseph Schwantner, Charles Wuorinen, Gerard Grisey, David Del Tredici and Ned Rorem. An evening with Philadelphia-based stars Dolce Suono, with a core group of artists from world-renowned Philly institutions like the Curtis Institute of Music and Philadelphia Orchestra, led by flutist Mimi Stillman, is certain to be equally astounding. This concert is comprised of two works that set ancient Chinese poetry, by Pulitzer-prize winner Shulamit Ran and USC’s own Fang Man, and will be preceded by a 6:30 p.m. presentation by Joseph Lam, chair of the Department of Musicology at the University of Michigan.
