American Idol Season 9 winner, Lee DeWyze, will share a bill with Charleston’s own Tyler Boone on Thurs. Dec. 5 at The Windjammer. Before winning Idol, DeWyze released two indie records with WuLi Records, and he played all the instruments — drums, guitar, banjo, mandolin, and piano — on his first discs. Singer/songwriter Tyler Boone has opened for some pretty sweet acts including Old Crow Medicine Show, Ben Rector, and the Lowcountry’s Danielle Howle. Oh, and this little band called Hootie and the Blowfish. Boone was also nominated for three City Paper Music Awards, and his catchy, acoustic single, “Don’t Forget My Name,” is currently in rotation on Charleston’s 105.5 The Bridge, several radio stations throughout South Carolina, and, get this, 102.1 in San Diego, Calif. Tickets are $10, and since cooler weather means less tourists and traffic, getting to IOP should be a breeze. For more ticket info, visut to
