spread the word

I have a lot of friends that are in bands.   Someone once said to me that musicians in San Francisco are like actors in Los Angeles;  if you lived in LA, everyone you knew would be in an actor and if you live in the Bay Area, just about everyone is a musician.  Plus, once you know one person in a band, then they start to multiply like bunnies.

A lot of my friends in the area have been having a problem with this one particular “promoter,” and it kills me to see.   I know how much time, effort, and finances they put into getting their shows together.   To see them get shafted by a promoter breaks my heart.   To see a band travel three hours to play a show in Berkeley, and get nothing, not even get $40 bucks to throw in the gas tank, is disgusting.

So, I’m posting this here: http//www.myspace.com/boycottsavage

If you’re a music fan or musician in the bay area, you should check it out, because ignorance is no excuse.

This person has infected one of my favorite places, Blake’s on Telegraph, and until she’s gone from there, it’ll break my heart, but I won’t be going to shows there.

I will be attending an awesome show in Berkeley at Ashkenaz on August 18:
Go Jimmy Go
Deals Gone Bad
The Uptones

Ashkenaz is a great place to see shows as it is always all ages and they serve Red Stripe.   I hope to see some of you there.  I know Miami will be in the front row with me, cutting it up.

Thanks for your attention.
