The first day of the fifth annual Charleston Green Fair—a festival that aims to boost community awareness of eco-friendly lifestyles through wellness workshops, cooking demonstrations, and fitness classes—culminates with a live concert featuring Brooklyn-based funk rockers, The Pimps of Joytime. On "Take the L Train," a track from their 2011 release, Janxta Funk!, Brian J's vocals alternate between a soulful falsetto and breathy sighs as he sings along to handclaps, orchestral arrangements, and his own blues-heavy guitar solos. The band's on-stage swagger, enlivened by Brian J's Prince-inspired stage antics, invigorates crowds chugging down a sonic smoothie of Afrobeat, salsa, and electronica. The twinkling piano, rap verses, and two-part harmonies present on local openers Ben Fagan and the Holy City Hooligans's track "We Will Remain" let listeners sway along to empowering lyrics, such as, "We all play a part in the circle of life." Often compared to Sublime and OAR, the band's uplifting tracks receive heavy rotation on Charleston local radio, as well as inside their moms’ station wagons. Throughout the concert, listeners can snack on cuisine from Triangle Char and Bar and sip brews from the New Belgium Brewing Company.
