Music and More at Jail Break 4

A diverse crowd of art, music, and dance fans gathered in the corridors, octagonal cells, and courtyards of the Old City Jail on Saturday evening (Nov. 17) for the fourth installment of Jail Break, a celebration of Charleston’s visual and performance art scene.

Four local bands on the musical roster took turns performing on a sizable side stage across the yard from a dance stage and a row of artist booths, food trucks, and craftsmen. Acoustic Americana/rock duo Southwood kicked things off. Popular local trio Dangermuffin played a full-band set before heading over the the ALS benefit show going on at the Brick House Kitchen on James Island.

Singer/songwriter Rachel Kate Gillon welcomed cellist Lonnie Root (of Entropy Ensemble), drummer George Baerris (of Matadero), and upright bassist Brad Edwardson (of the Flat Foot Floozies, the Royal Tinfoil, the Local Honeys) to the stage for a dynamic set. The newly adjusted lineup of local pop-rock group Crowfield (fronted by singer/guitarist Tyler Mechem) closed the show.

The third-floor room dedicated to the new stand-up, improv, and sketch comedy segment of Jail Break was too packed to check out, but there were elbow room throughout the courtyard where the beer and food trucks served their hearty fare.
