Rocketown Goes to Florida

Like an old retired couple, Rocketown is moving to Florida. Don't get your hopes up though--as previously reported here on Cream: Rocketown is not disappearing from Nashville, although the construction of the new Nashville convention center will at least silence the screams of the nation's emo rockers for a period of time.

The Florida location is merely a satellite for Michael W. Smith to spread the Hannitized gospel of Christian values posing as secular pop culture, haircuts like this, bands as bad as this and the safety of teenagers.

Personally, I'm more concerned with the safety of art than I am the safety of teenagers. Teenagers are dumb. Art is not. Anyhow, as if the Sunshine State didn't have it bad enough--between boy bands, Limp Bizkit, Creed, hurricanes, Disney, the 2000 election and gator attacks--they're about to get a little slice of the only thing Nashville has to offer that's worse than John Rich.

The "club" will open later this month in Pompano Beach, just north of Ft. Lauderdale. Read about the misfortune of this beachside community here. Take a virtual tour of Rocketown Florida here.

Also, for all you RCKTWN fans out there, don't forget to go kick it down at the Next Warped Nashville NBN show tomorrow night.
