Re: “Bruce Springsteen at Apollo: Righteous indignation gone wrong

This is a reach. Springsteen chose to play a landmark theater, he didn't bulldoze an entire Harlem block to build a Wrecking Ball pop-up store. He didn't displace anyone, he just played a damn concert. Yes, the Apollo is inextricably linked with Harlem and African American culture, but that doesn't mean white musicians shouldn't play there.

There's something worth exploring in the 1% stuff, and I actually think Armond White is making a worthwhile point for once. But the "sea of Caucasians" crap comes across as cheap.

Re: “Haters gonna hate ...

You must be right, pflan, the cessation of posts in a two week old thread is clear evidence that Baby Baby silenced all the haters with this video.

If you're going to defend these guys, maybe pick a different angle that doesn't involve saying shit like "progressive genius" and "musical talents and abilities." That's how people defend jam bands and Steve Vai. As far as I can tell, Baby Baby is more interested in writing party anthems than they are in pioneering new forms. Which is a perfectly fine goal to have. Just don't act like they're all a bunch of virtuosos. I doubt they would even make that claim.

Just because you like something or find it well done doesn't mean it's progressive.

Re: “Haters gonna hate ...

It makes sense that someone who likes All Get Out and Foxy Shazam would defend Baby Baby.

Re: “For some bands, a freeloading fanbase is better than none

"Nobody wants to pay even five bucks for a good show if they've seen the bands for free in the past couple of months"

For me personally, the opposite is true. I pay to see all-local bills pretty frequently, and sometimes the prospect of paying $5+ to see Bands X, Y, and Z isn't so appealing when I realize I've paid to see all of them separately in the last month, sometimes more than once. But if a show is free and I like the bands, I'll probably be there regardless of how many times I've seen them recently.

There are also people who are too broke, cheap, or apathetic to go to a $5 local show under any circumstances. In my opinion, the biggest advantage to free shows is that you can convince cheap friends and friends who don't particularly care about local music to get out and see some bands they might not see otherwise.

Re: “Wanda Jackson's nonstop rock 'n' roll party — from Elvis to Jack White

So is Jerry R just some committed joke account that's supposed to parody the average Crib Notes reader or something? Or is he just kind of slow?

Anyway, I like Wanda, she's a good alternative/grunge singer.
