I kinda like The Grinch
I think the biggest problem with this whole scene is the sense of entitlement. If a writer does not like you for your music, that’s good, that means they are doing their subjectively objective job of reviewing music. The Nashville Scene should not exist to help out a local scene that isn't worth helping (although I do think this scene is very much worthy of some praise). That said, I personally think bands like Big Surr and Diarrhea Planet are great. They are fun and don't sound like the same garage/punk/lofi garbage that a lot of other bands put out in this day and age. But Casey, don't write about how this shitty article is embarrassing for your band. The writers do not owe you (or any other band) anything.
They do owe the reader good writing, which is not provided here. Would it hurt, for once, to not write about the crowd? Who gives a shit what the kids looked and dressed like or what school they attend? A show is about the music. When I was in high school and went to local shows, I never thought to myself "Oh, I hope my choice in clothing or my shitty Baptist school doesn't get mentioned on my account..." I was just another member of the crowd enjoying the music. Then again I’m from a very different and larger music scene so maybe that’s it.
Casio, the reason a large crowd does not sing along to Power Brrrd's songs is because Power Brrrd sucks. At least that is the unanimous opinion amongst literally everyone I have talked with about that band. It’s disheartening to see those guys play with the knowledge that they are only up there because they have two members affiliated with the Scene and one who works at The End. Don't get me wrong, its great to see a band get out there and play, and I'm sure some people even enjoy the music, but it just feels kind of wrong.
were you listening to the same Evan Donohue album I was? I'm pretty sure the fidelity is nowhere close to "lo-fi."
hey I have to live with the fucking guy. He fucks every girl I attempt to court... And I'm not sure how much more Coldplay I can take...
