Re: “Road to Bonnaroo part 4 5/17/10 (2)

I am positive that all of the great Nashville's musicians on the bill are happy performing there next month, BUT I still can not believe how dificult the event organizers make it for local talent to get a spot at one of their stages... it is a disgrace that I can play at a festival in Manchester England and not at Manchester Tennessee... Well there is always 2011, maybe next year I'll get a chance to treat the audiences with sometingh they have been longing for, something cool & fresh...!!! I too should be playing at Bonaroo 2010,just remember that "no one can stop the future"

Re: “Summer Guide

So how much did Heineken pay for that product placement? (picture #5) Can't even support a local brewery, let alone a US based brewery?

Re: “2010 Flood

I think this is a great collection from the flood. It really shows several different angles. I don't mind the coloring at all - I think it looks pretty, but doesn't distort the magnitude of the situation. good job.

Re: “2010 Flood

This photo makes me SO MAD!! I hate it like it's my JOB! How could someone add color and distort the ACTUAL devastation that occurred to MY city? It's like a cheap air-brushed piece of crap. This is NOT how MY city looks. STUPID!

Re: “2010 Flood

I live in Australia. I've been through many huge and devastating floods. Either way you look at these photo's, it looks like a whole lot of heartache to me. We wish you a speedy recovery Nashville.

Re: “2010 Flood

aa is right, SOME of these pictures show alot of damage, but there isn't enough photographers at the Scene to fully cover the flood damage. Tdurant, I want to know where you live. Obviously you don't live around or near the flooded areas. These pictures look better, but youtube is the best place to go for info on the extent of the flood damage.

Re: “2010 Flood

With a couple of exceptions, these photos are really lame. They hardly convey the magnitude of the flood. A guy with a manhole cover, a turtle crossing the road...oh, the humanity! Regular people with cheap cameras took much better photos than these. Is this really the best you could do?

Re: “Vampire Weekend at The Ryman, 4/5/10

Andrew J- blame it on PBS kids for introducing the tots to Vampire Weekend. Their use of "A Punk" has opened the door for a younger generation of hipsters. Even my 3 year old is on the badwagon. Although her favorite song is "Oxford Comma."

Re: “2010 Nashville Film Festival

Nashville Scene folks:
What's the use of looking at 24 slides if there are no cutlines. I have no idea what I'm looking at without some sort of description. Love the idea behind the slides but this missing informations is significant.

Re: “Vampire Weekend at The Ryman, 4/5/10

1 to 2 sentences underneath photos of a decent live show are no place for critique. A majority of these comments are dripping with snobbery, which only undermine the talent of the band, the credibility of the Nashville scene, and most importantly, the unspoken beauty of the Ryman Auditorium. Badly critiquing a show is fine. It will not bring back the band, ever. Congratulations. But, when I go to the Ryman, I expect to see class. And the same should go for the Scene.

Re: “Vampire Weekend at The Ryman, 4/5/10

I get the feeling that the same people that write this crap are the same people that sit around the majority of nashville shows judging and critiquing every note played instead of just enjoying the gift of music. I don't even really like vampire weekend all that much but your criticisms are jealous at best and insane at worst. You don't like them because they play (afro music), don't dress up, and sound too much like their records. How about giving us some useful information such as what songs they did play, how did the crowd receive them, what was the energy like and what young rock bands have played at the ryman lately and ? I wish I was in a band where the major flaw was we sounded too much like our records which are pretty good. Sometimes steering away from your records can be bad just go see a bob dylan show for proof. And please as a favor to everyone who enjoys live music please stay from Dr. Dog when they come to the mercy lounge.

Re: “Vampire Weekend at The Ryman, 4/5/10

This is a little pathetic. First of all don't hate them because they are preppy and went to an Ivy League school. Second of all what's wrong with being white and playing some afro-pop. Sounds like you guys are being a little racist. Third of all, don't be such hipsters.

Re: “Vampire Weekend at The Ryman, 4/5/10

Sadly for the Creamery All-Stars, the Vampires of the Weekend are pretty much cynicism-proof. I should know, I tried. Hard. I tried so hard it hurt the bowels of my unborn children. And, also, my bowels.

They're quite good, and, though "A-Punk" is hands-down their finest moment, thus far, it is by no means the be-all and end-all of their repertoire. If you wanna have a go at them, two words: boat shoes. My dad wears them. Or handlebar mustaches. My dad thinks they're lame.

Also, my wife went to the show, and she said there was a seven year-old next to her. Seven year-olds, dude.
