His performance was fabulous. I can't believe it didn't sell out!
It WAS a great one!! We had fun and Jah Med was there to offer medical/health services. Thanks to Mateel for a wonderful show.
You hippies ever going to get sick of dubstep and rock out on some techno, or what? At least bring some drum and bass, for Gaia's sake.
How is Terrence spreading hate?
terrence has a personal policy of refusing to respond to anonymouseseses. what he means is, he won't engage in polite correspondence with anonymouseseses, but will take the time of day to spread hate.
She is a transvestite.
Get over it. She's a she.
Stop calling that boy 'she'
Hey, Bob! It was fun talking with you on the phone last Sunday--you'll have to tell me again the name of that foreign film you suggested, really would like to watch it.
Just wanted to add a bit here as I'm not so sure it's clear: like the talented and super down to earth, Chris Parreira, I too, believe I can make a go of music professionally. And I am. :)
Though we didn't get to it in the interview, I also have an up coming mini-tour via Greyhound bus (there's a story in that for sure), and next summer the plan is to tour the south east U.S.
For now, it may be just me and the six string, but I am putting together a backing band, slowly but surely-- takes time & the right folks. It'll all come together, so I keep writing and singing and believing in what my music has to offer, share, inspire.
Thanks, Bob, for the great write up--your words help both Chis & I in this world of emerging musical artists.
With much confidence,
"In part because the Placebo kids were not experienced in dealing with bureaucrats and in part because the music they enjoyed tended to be loud"
Feel you missed something very important here. "Dealing with bureaucrats" requires tens-of-thousands of dollars. They got kicked out of Arcata because they couldn't spend 5-digits making minor adjustments to their space- the City did not support them or help- they were not allowed to exist.
The same thing happened to Synapsis in Eureka, one of the most promising, unique venues in the county. Shut down, due to lack of funds for the City's extortion fees. And lack of support from the City Council (as a whole. not you Larry).
Manila, was just neighbors, which the Placebo was very pro-active about trying to resolve. No dice.
If Humboldt wants to be known as forward thinking, we need to foster the arts and let collectives like The Placebo and Synapsis exist, even if they can't afford $50,000 to put in an ADA ramp/bathroom, or whatever.
It's time that we recognize the vast contribution that groups like these (and events like Arts Alive, which gets no official support either) make to our community.
I know codes are their for a reason- to serve the community as a whole. And I confess to lacking a full grasp of the municipal implications of my opinion. But surely we should recognize instances when our bureaucracies are not helping. We need to support a good thing when we see it.
Placebo on south G was a great idea.
ps. I didn't help them out much either, or attend any city council meetings, just went to some shows. Y'all should go to this one.

For those in the know, It's not about dough, Despite that lame poem, Telling me so...

No irony here! Barn dance is on FRIDAY, the day before, which is correct in your calendar... thanks for delving into the Jades' genius!
Happy Birthday, NCJ!
