I love Darius Rucker and the USC community is, and should be, very proud of their alumni but I walked past this thing a hundred times before I even knew it was a tribute. If you’re in 5 Points go have a look, then go...More

Had to see this when visiting the Five Points district so I could send my musician son a picture. Hootie was a favorite when he was in HS.

if you are a fan of Hootie and the Blowfish, this is definitely a picture taking spot. It's in the 5 Points area of Columbia, so lots of shopping and restaurants and bars.

One of Columbia's more locally relevant outdoor sculptures, this one is dedicated to Hootie and the Blowfish. 90s music aficionados will love it, those without context will probably be lost. If you have a few minutes and are in Five Points, check it out. Easily...More

I think this sight is appreciated most by locals and students that grew up listening to Hootie and The Blowfish at Rockafellas on Devine Street in the late 80s
