The bar closing hours change in 2004 really fucked my life up. And the city loves to throw away tons of tax revenue in the name of ageism and dubious moralism.
So what bands should Chad be writing about instead?
It's a good thing the people Alex App champions are more open minded than he is. Andre 3000, Ludacris, Cee-Lo, and Lil Jon are all extremely talented people who have benefited from coming up in a town with a diverse music scene. Black Lips and Mastodon are not in any way generic, if you don't like them that's fine. They are appealing to a very wide audience in fact, whether you like it or not. The hip-hop scene has been stagnating for years. I hope it comes back, I miss the old crunk days of the late 90's and early 2000's, it was good times. Why step on the good times another scene is enjoying today? All the rock/indie bands making waves will be the first to tell you how much they have been inspired by all kinds of local music, from rock to hip-hop to classic soul and gospel you probably don't even know about. It's up to crunk to make it's own comeback, not Creative Loafing.
